Reiki – Lymm
|Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki universal life energy.Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system.
The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki’s ki-energies flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient’s body. Reiki is sometimes hard to explain because it is so simple and delicate. Yet, it provides such a deep and powerful healing on all levels — spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically — that transcends intellectual understanding.Reiki is a gentle, natural form of spiritual healing that anyone can learn, and which can easily work hand-in-hand with medical and therapeutic techniques, often enhancing greater comfort from pain relief and speeding recovery processes.
Reiki is known to help with virtually every known medical, mental, emotional, and spiritual malady, and is one of the best preventative health practices available. Reiki’s use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
Because Reiki is such a high vibration, practitioners or receivers of Reiki on a regular basis, tend to find they are living a more spiritual life; their thinking and mental/emotional well-being becomes grounded and centred, while their physical body becomes strengthened and balanced.
How Reiki Works
The Reiki practitioner places their hands gently on the body (some above the body) and begins the Reiki energy flow. Often the Reiki is described as being felt as hot, cold, vibration, pressure, heaviness, butterflies. Sometimes, nothing is felt at all but that does not mean the Reiki is not flowing. Most receivers of Reiki fall into such a deep, peaceful state of natural relaxation almost as if they are on the verge of sleep, while others fall into a light peaceful sleep.
Because Reiki is an energy it flows into the body along pathways called meridians and will unblock areas of built-up emotional energy, some might call “Ki” or “Qui”. Removing the excessive build-up of ki in the body allows the life-force to begin to flow naturally, thus eliminating aches and pains, nourishing vital organs, and allowing the body systems to regulate properly.
A typical private Reiki session lasts approximately 1 hour.
Reiki Attunements with Libertas
Anyone can learn Reiki, it is that simple of a technique. However, Reiki is taught in perhaps a more alternative way than traditional medicines. The Reiki can only be transferred to a student during a Reiki class during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master. This attunement process opens and aligns the student with this highest life-force healing energy, placing it into their crown chakras, moving it through their body and into their hands.
Reiki Level I
At this level the initiate is permanently attuned and connected to the Reiki source of healing energy. Once initiated it allows a person to performing healing on oneself and others. It requires no special invocation or alteration of the thinking process to “turn on the flow” of Reiki. By simply placing the hands and opening the hart to love, one automatically brings in the energy.
The First Degree is the foundation for all three degrees, and should be mastered first before the person considered for the next level.
This level deals with physical issues.
Reiki Level II
The initiate is attuned again to better connect with energies that heal mental and emotional issues and that can travel across any distance and time. You can practice sending distance healing to your friends and family, even animals.
The power symbol learned can be used to help focus energy for specific purposes. In order to receive this initiation, one must have been previously attuned to Reiki I.
Reiki Level III / Master
All the Reiki energy is unlocked when attuned to this level. At this level the initiate will be able to perform Reiki attunements to others. One must have been previously attuned to Level I and II in order to receive this level.
All attunements will be held at the Libertas practice over seven hour session in which you will be attuned. This includes lunch and a Reiki treatment and certification to the relevant attunement. It’s a wonderful day in which we all discuss our experiences and dedication to the practice of this wonderful therapy.
