Reiki Development

The word “Reiki” in Japanese translates roughly as “universal life force energy.” Reiki is a specific form of energetic healing that is becoming increasingly well known for the array of outcomes it can facilitate. Reiki is performed by a practitioner channeling and directing Universal energy through their hands, which may be placed lightly on the body or held slightly above it, in different positions. It supports the body’s inherent wisdom, vitality and healing capability.

One of the aims of Reiki is to break down old and habitual patterns of being and perceiving to clear obscurations. Reiki energy flows to the area most in need of treatment, healing the imbalance. Clients may experience a range of sensations during a treatment along with a deep sense of relaxation. Reiki is great for managing stress and experiencing tranquility.

Development of a reiki practice allows access to higher sources of help that you may call on at any time. Your own Reiki spirit guides, higher self, angels and beings of light can assist you, both in your own self-healing, and in the development of a reiki practice.

An important aspect of Reiki development is intention. Reiki attunements are an integral aspect of aligning your own energy to that of reiki energy as you develop through the various reiki levels (Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Reiki Master). Reiki teaches you to work from a space of compassion and unconditional love for all beings.

One way to facilitate development of your reiki practice is via prayer and affirmations. Asking your reiki guides regularly to guide you and assist you in offering compassionate service to others is a great way to further increase and intensify your reiki energy and tap into the spiritual guidance surrounding you.

Once attuned to the reiki life-force energy, continuing to nurture and develop your reiki energy via open heartedness and a desire to serve the community will increase your personal and spiritual development in the evolution of health, healing and consciousness on the planet.
