REIKI—“Universal Energy”Part 2

Ciao bella,
Zoe, Reiki healer with crystal

Reiki was developed by Natural Healer and Buddhist Mikao Usai. He opened his first commercial Reiki clinic in 1922 in Japan. Many followers adapted this meditation technique so that the body can heal itself naturally. Reiki is considered to be complementary and an alternative medicine.

In 1922 while Usai was performing a 21-day Buddhist training course held on Mount Kurama in Japan he had this mystical revelation! The training course which probably consisted of meditation, fasting. chanting and prayer provided Usai the gained knowledge and spiritual power to apply and teach others what he called Reiki.

He lived to be 61 years young and on the inscription on his memorial stone read how he taught over 2,000 people in his lifetime and 16 of his students continued their training to reach a level of being a Natural Healer!

This system uses specific symbols and hand positions to rid negative energy, symptoms and illnesses.

Today Reiki is considered an important part of taking charge of your body’s inner ability to heal itself. Its philosophies and healing applications have gained world wide attention.

I do believe the body has its own energy and the life energy surrounding us to turn a situation around for the better with this healing process.

Whenever Reiki is performed on me by Zoe, whether it is “distant” Reiki or in person I always feel a warmth enveloping me. Give Reiki a try, you have only to gain a sense of healing.
