Reiki Symbols – The Gift of Life Force [07 May 2011|02:38pm]

janice_b
[ mood | contemplative ]

There are two schools of thought about Reiki symbols. The first says that Reiki symbols are sacred and not to be shared with those who are not initiated into Reiki. It is thought the Reiki symbols will not work, and will be diluted if they are shared with someone who has no knowledge of how to use them. The second school of thought is sharing the Reiki symbols with everyone is really what the energy of Reiki is all about – UNIVERSAL life force. And thus, it should be available to all to share. Seems there is no right or wrong here, just which school of thought you subscribe to, or what your Reiki training has been.

There are still some old Reiki masters who will tell you right off the bat that the Reiki symbols are not to be shared with just anyone, as it takes away from the power of them. There may be sense in this argument if you stop to think about the Reiki symbols themselves. They don't mean anything to someone who has no idea what they are or what they can achieve with them. On the other hand, there are so many self-help books on the subject of Reiki and using the Reiki symbols that you might think you can learn how to do Reiki through using a book and teaching yourself.

If the books dealing with Reiki symbols are to be believed, you should not only be able to learn the symbols, but attune yourself and become whatever level of practitioner you wish. While this sounds simple, there really is a whole lot more to it than just reading a book. Particularly when you get more advanced in levels.

Without getting into too much about the symbols, as in drawing them, we can certainly tell you the names of the symbols used for the lower levels of Reiki energy channeling. If you are just starting, the first level of Reiki requires no symbols to work. It does however need an attunement from the Reiki master who is training you. Level 2 symbols need to be given to you by the Reiki master along with an attunement to the second level. Self-help books indicate you can do attunements yourself. That is still a highly controversial level and a word of caution here. Do energy work with respect and caution.

But, back to the Level 2 symbols. There are three of them – the Power symbol, the Mental/Emotional Symbol and the Distance Symbol. The Power symbol means "by Imperial decree, put all the power of the universe here". The Mental/Emotional Symbol means "God and humanity become one, to create a new habit". The Distance Symbol means "May the Buddha (enlightened one) in me connect with the Buddha in you to promote peace and dignity."

The Purpose of Reiki Healing

Reiki healing has been in continuing practice for several years now. It is recognized to be a great tool that is aimed at personal treatment and growth. Reiki energy is rooted from an optimal spiritual source which never fails to come up with the best results. The healing applies for the spirit, the mind, and the body which has to serve as the guide in an individual's journey called life. Reiki likewise aids in the enhancement of the personal talents. Of course, all of these can only materialize if you prefer to get attuned to this sacred practice. There exists a sacred covenant that has to be maintained and nurtured for always.

Learning the Program of Self-Healing

For you to be able to acquire the depth of the knowledge on Reiki's self-healing process, you must develop a sensible time for practice. You need to master different techniques. The way on how you execute it will move you forward near your goal or pull you away from your desired aim. In the course of self-healing, the appropriate technique must be used and thus should be learned by you. If you are qualified enough to do so, you may choose to develop your own healing system which will work to your advantage. If you have your spirit, mind, and heart into Reiki, you will surely succeed.

The Allotted Time for Self-Healing

The Reiki system of self-healing is best done by regularly allotting at least 30 minutes to yourself. It is time that you realize how important it is to value yourself and therefore spend some time for your complete healing. You may use either the scanning or hand positions as your technique. Your focus should be on those regions that require healing the most. As the session begins, you will be carefully guided as to where your hands should go and which body part should you touch. You have to feel everything that you are doing. Let the energy flow and feel it vibrating. While the session is going on, ponder on your daily activities and where your life is heading. It is by means of thinking over your practice in life will your quest for self-healing produce a great impact. This is a kind of technique that promotes the development of a healthy attitude. More so, this self-reflection technique will similarly give you more room for the generation of very creative ideas and ways on how it will be best to handle your own troubles.

Self-Healing in Groups

Again, Reiki treatment can be administered to yourself or to others. Hence, you may form a special group with the rest of the Reiki self-healers whom you know and do the session altogether. This practice is a lot more effective because you don't only get to heal yourself but the rest of your group mates as well. A daily practice can do wonders. You will heal each other faster. The complete healing is also sure to materialize. The secret to it is the sharing of energy and support as the group gets on with the session.

Being in a group will give you the opportunity to discuss among yourselves the things that you want to get healed with. A once a week meeting will generate a more serious focus and a deeper purpose in each and every one of you. Let the prayers guide you through as you convene in the Reiki healing practice.

query on healing and releasing... [04 Feb 2008|05:48pm]
sublimevisions
in shamanism there is a concept of a wounded healer. this definition was conveyed to me as a person who takes away the pain of others but cannot let go of it themselves. ultimately, they take it on.

this is an interesting concept in that i remember talk of of reiki practitioners/masters who started exhibiting symptoms of the things they tried to heal.

query for all of you healers here. how do you approach someone in pain seeking release? what is your intention when approaching your recipient?

Any experiences, or opinions you would care to share?

Thank You.

reiki: your working definition [23 Jul 2007|08:38pm]
sublimevisions
what is reiki to you? describe it.

i've been working on a theory about reiki, about energy, and about the universe.
i'll share my thoughts later, but i want to test the grounds with a few questions.

what do you see when you connect to reiki? Is it situation / client dependent?
what do you feel as existing? when you are in a session with a client, do you feel them? do you feel yourself? do you feel a separation between the two of you?

what do you feel when you connect to yourself? and treat yourself.

i'ld love to hear these responses from other people.

love and laughter

sublimevisions
Query.

Has anyone ever given an attunement (re-attunement) over distance?

What are the benefits or outcomes that can be expected.

Do you have any suggestions or things to be mindful of?

I appreciate your response.

Thank you.

I just graduated from a massage school in Minnesota and I was wondering if there are any of you that practice in this state. I'm interested in your experiences with starting out: hopes, dreams, fears, etc.

Also I'm considering moving to California but I heard the job market for massage therapists is slim and you are treated more like a criminal that a professional. Any comments would be very appreciated.

Introduction: I'm new [23 Aug 2006|12:25am]

sharan_s
I am Sharan, and I am a clinical hypnotherapist, reiki master and also use the advanced soundwave energy system (an ancient Egyptian technique). Initially I was started out in the working world as a clinical scientist working in the field of genetics after having obtained an MSc in Human Genetics. However, as time went by, my interest in the holistic healing system increased due to personal circumstances. That was how I got into what I do now, which I completely enjoy.

I like to incoporate the advanced soundwave energy into my hypnotherapy work as I feel that it allows me to have the holistic approach to the therapy session. The advanced soundwave energy works on the whole energy system and continues to do so for three weeks after. That is why I feel that giving the client this treatment along with the hypnotherapy caters for both mind and all energy bodies.

I'm new to LiveJournal, and I will do my best to continue writing in my blog and to this community and to allow those who read to go into more detail of the experiences and new learnings that I receieve from my patients and the world around me - it's not only them receiving from me, but me receiving from them too. So I look forward to sharing what I experience and learn.

Till then, Namaste.

Frustration with chakra spin directions [06 Aug 2006|07:35pm]

cutopia
So I've looked into a couple styles of healing that deal with chakras and specify certain directions (clockwise or counterclockwise) that you are supposed to spin the chakra to get a certain effect. Most of the healing I try to do is on myself, but I'm never sure whether the directions I'm reading are for doing it on myself or on another person. And I when I do assume they are for another person and try to convert them over to myself, I all to often seem to get confused and get it backwards (guess it doesn't help that I'm from the digital clock generation)!

So anyway, I've read that clockwise energizes and counterclockwise cleans (whether one is using a pendulum or hands). How does this work if you are doing it to yourself? What is an easy way to remember which way I'm supposed to go?

First off [05 Aug 2006|03:00pm]

[ mood | worried ]

Thank you to those who responded to my first post, it helps to know I'm not just paranoid about that particular corporation. Now if the community would be so kind as to help me with this new dilemma it would be immensly appreciated. Right now I live with my girlfriend and our lease is almost up which gives us mobility. She has no higher than a high school background but her family has opted to give her room board and a means to get a college education. Also my friend came into a substantial amount of capital (enough for low budget business start up costs anyways) and wants to push my practice as a means to help us both out. I have this month to get 1000 dollars, plus pay up all the other basic bills with my girlfriends help. We also have a guy who was once a successful used car salesmen, but wanted to do something else because he felt like he was swindling people. So he has offered to promote the business and make deals for a commission. I live in Washington and the only stipulation is I have to move to Arizona where they want to base to do it. Right now I have zip for funds, though I have my supplies, drive, and a willingness to be adventurous and push this thing into a success, even if I have to work a remedial job at the same time. We're going to try to get a cheap townhome in Mesa and have clients come there, as well as go to them, and promote chair massage to business's , go to events, etc.
The thing is my girlfriend thinks that this is a bad idea, and doesn't want me to leave. Her Dad says that I have to pay my dues and work for a place for a couple of years and learn how to run a business that way. My argument is " What was I doing in student clinic? And why did my teachers keep giving advice throughout the program on how to run a business? And if I don't know anything, why did I spend all that time in massage practice and theory, take the three day course on massage and the law, and the other three day course on business massage being taught by an outside successful therapist? Why did I waste all that time if I wouldn't know anything when I got out anyways?" Okay I get what her Dad is saying, and how that applies to the normal corporate ladder job, but I thought the best way to learn how to do a massage practice is draw up a business plan, get the capital and do it. Now I respect the guy and take his words as wisdom, he paid his dues at what he does and now makes a few grand over 100,000 per year, but he has never done massage therapy. I say yes, I am not established with years of practice under my belt, nor do I have the capital to set up a nice spa or clinic, like I'll say again, Massage Envy. But I do have the drive, a sales rep, the ability and willingness to get out into the world and sell myself and let the world at large know that despite my being green in my career and only 21, that I am true professional and expect to be considered and treated as such. On top of that I have a friend who wants to push me and simultaneously help us other two guys become successful as well, and he is going to use his own money to do it.
My girlfriend is going to be taken care of, so I'm free. But on the flipside I'm inexperienced, and the prospect is risky, but at least I will learn something.
What do you think I should do?

point of Interest and concern [27 Jul 2006|01:26pm]

shimikai
[ mood | okay ]

Okay I didn't want to start out this way, but the topic has been bugging me for quite awhile. There is a company called Massage Envy that is sweeping the nation. On the plus side it provides aspiring therapists a place to get some experience in working the massage industry with a steady income. Furthermore, it's a number of established franchises which will automatically bring clients in due to their capacity to market.
Here's the negative. Therapists only make 15 dollars comission otherwise they make minimum wage. The franchises stock their facilities with alot of therapists, which is convenient for the customer, but if you look at the big picture, or have ever been the restraunt industry you can begin to see a problem. Okay for those who still may be lost. Imagine working 5 days per week on a 6 hour shift, you get 2 clients that day for 1 hour massages. You just made 30 dollars. But say that the rest of your week stays the same and is worse the following week. Well then that means you get a minimum wage check. Basically what I'm saying is you would have to max out your clients every day just to get the comission pay, otherwise you are wasting your time.
Here is what bothers me, these places are popping up everywhere, offering 60 dollar membership fees and charging 40 dollars per 1 hour massage, while the therapists are making minimum wage. Thus cheapening our field and reducing it to a burger-flipping job.
Maybe I'm just paranoid, but then maybe there is something to it. What do you think?
