The Essential Reiki: A Summoning of Cosmic Energy
The most remarkable technique of natural self-healing is Reiki. This universal life force, the source of cosmic energy is inside us. By tuning to this divine channel, our diseases can be cured.
You won’t find this extraordinary force on any television channel. This spiritual channel is present in every person, irrespective of religion, gender or region.
Reiki healing may be described as “palm healing”, since the energy is transferred to cure others through the palms. This holistic and alternative medicine, bsed on ancient Tibetan knowledge, was developed by the Japanese Buddhist monk Dr. Usui.
Dr. Usuimeditated and fasted for 21 days, then “a white light traveling at a great speed hit him on the forehead”. During this intense moment of Revelation, Dr. Usui founded the technique of Reiki healing.
There is, of course, one major difference between the Japanese and the western Reiki Masters. In the Japanese Reiki, the most important thing is “knowing where to place the hands.” On the other hand, in the western system of this spiritual therapy, there is a greater emphasis on the cure of different diseses.
It is undoubtedly true that the energy will flow through the Reiki Master’s .hands whenever the hands are placed on, or held near a potential recipient. Anyone can feel the healing vibrations of this divine energy through an attunement process.
Still more clearly we can understand the Reiki healing with this illustration. Suppose, the aircraft is hizacked. We create a positive divine energy shield to protect the stranded hostages from the hizackers by sending the Reiki vibrations of Love, Peace and Brotherhood through the movement of our palms.The Reiki practicioners hope for a miracle to occur by altering the negative thinking of the hizackers through prayer and Reiki.
This energy or vibrational medicine Reiki has created a lot of controversy. Catholic Bishops issued this warning in 2009: “Reiki therapy is not compatible with either Christian teaching or scientific evidence, it would be inappropriate for Catholic institutions, such as Catholic health care facilities and retreat centres, or persons representing the Church, such as Catholic chaplains, to promote or to provide support for Reiki therapy."
