What is Reiki?
Reiki, is a Japanese word meaning ‘Universal Life Energy’ - this energy is all around us and flows through all living things. Reiki evolved from the experience, ancient teachings, meditation and research of a Japanese Buddhist Dr Mikao Usui in the early twentieth century.
Reiki passes a ‘healing energy’ through my palms to you. It is very relaxing, and can help with a range of problems, from general well-being to a specific injury or emotionally.. This is a a non-invasive therapy which addresses the flow of energy that may be hindered by stress, illness, or pain. Reiki helps refresh your energy by restoring balance and re-invigorating, helping the body to heal itself.
Reiki Lineage shows you who your Reiki Master is and going back to your original Reiki Master in my case that would be MIKAO USUI. For my Lineage please click here
You should be given your Reiki lineage details by your Reiki master.
Knowing your lineage has become more important recently because it is a required part of the Reiki National Occupational Standards (NOS) and therefore required for verification and registration for professional practice in partnership with Reiki Council, and for registration with the CNHC.
Some people may find that knowing their Reiki lineage increases their sense of connection, and this can be a very deep spiritual experience. To know your lineage is to feel part of what has gone before. It provides a solid base for your Reiki practice and gives you a connection to the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui.
In Mikao Shiki Rhoyo the attunements are as follows:
Reiki 1 - 4 attunements, Reiki 2 - 2 attunements and Reiki 3 - 2 attunements
Anything less is not good enough.
