FAQ’s about Reiki

Q. Where does Reiki energy come from?
A. Reiki energy is a subtle energy. It is different than electricity, chemical or magnetic energy. Reiki energy comes from the Higher Power, also called Universal life force energy which exists on a higher dimension than the physical world we are familiar with. When viewed clairvoyantly, Reiki energy appears to come down from above and to enter the top of the practitioners head (crown charka) after which it flows through the body and out the hands. We are not giving our energy, we are merely channels through whom the energy flows into the receiver.
 



Q. Is Reiki a Religion?

A. Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make their own decisions concerning the nature of their religious practices.
 



Q. How is a Reiki treatment given?
A. In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the receiver. The receiver is usually lying down but treatments can also be given while the receiver is seated or even standing. The receiver remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the receivers body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the receivers needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the receiver needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
 



Q. What does a Reiki treatment feel like?
A. What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
 



Q. What can be treated with Reiki?
A. Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, bee stings, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, etc. The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healings which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. However, while some have experienced miracles, they cannot be guaranteed. Reiki works holistically and works on the body, mind and soul. Stress reduction with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
 



Q. Does one have to stop seeing a regular doctor or psychologist in order to receive a Reiki treatment?
A. No. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If one has a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that one see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care and will improve the results.
 



Q. Who can learn to do Reiki?
A. Reiki is a very simple technique to learn and is not dependent on one having any prior experience with healing, meditation or any other kind of training. It has been successfully learned by over one million people from all walks of life, both young an old. The reason it is so easy to learn that it is not taught in the usual way something is taught. The ability to do Reiki is simply transferred from the teacher to the student through a process called an attunement that takes place during a Reiki class. As soon as one receives an attunement, they have the ability to do Reiki and after that whenever one places their hands on themselves or on another person with the intention of doing Reiki, the healing energy will automatically begin flowing.
 



Q. How long does it take to learn Reiki?
A. A beginning Reiki class is taught on a weekend. The class is two days long. Along with the attunement, it is necessary that the student be shown how to give treatments and also to practice giving treatments in class.
 



Q. What is a Reiki attunement?
A. A Reiki attunement is the process by which a person receives the ability to give Reiki treatments. The attunement is administered by the Reiki Master during the Reiki class. Reiki attunement is a secret process which is only revealed to a Reiki teacher. The attunement energies will flow through the Reiki Master and into the participant. These special energies are guided by the Higher Power and make adjustments in the participants energy pathways and connect the student to the source of Reiki. Because the energetic aspect of the attunement is guided by the Higher Power, it adjusts itself to be exactly right for each participant.
 



Q. Can I treat myself?
A. Yes, once you have received the attunement, you can treat yourself as well as others. This is one of the unique features of Reiki.
 



Q. I have heard that Reiki can be sent to others at a distance. How does this work?
A. Yes, in Reiki II, you are given three Reiki symbols. These symbols are empowered by the Reiki II attunement through the Reiki Master. These symbols are used for distant healing. These symbols break the time and space barriers and you can send Reiki to anyone no matter where they are in the world. They could be hundreds of miles away, but it makes no difference. The Reiki energy will go to them and treat them. You can also send Reiki to crisis situations and the Reiki energy will help there too.
 



Q. How many levels are there to the Reiki training?
A. In the Usui system of Reiki, there are 3 levels. These include Level 1, 2, 3(A) and 3(B).
 



Q. What does it feel like to give a treatment?
A. When giving a Reiki treatment, the Reiki energy flows through the practitioner before leaving the hands and flowing into the receiver. Because of this, the practitioner receives a treatment also. As the Reiki energy flows through the practitioner, she/he will feel more relaxed and uplifted. Spiritual experiences sometimes take place. The practitioner sometimes receives insights about what the receiver needs to know to heal more deeply.
 



Q. Can children learn Reiki?
A. Yes, Reiki can be taught to anyone. I recommend that a child be old enough to understand what Reiki is and that the child request to receive Reiki.
 



Q. Is it safe for pregnant woman?
A. Since Reiki is guided by the Higher Power, the Reiki energy will know the condition of the client or student and adjust appropriately. Reiki can only do good. Many pregnant women have received treatments with great benefit to them and their unborn child. It has also been used during child birth. Pregnant women have also taken the Reiki training and received the Reiki attunement with beneficial results.
 



Q. What about babies?
A. Babies love Reiki. It is very healthy for them. Do not worry about it being too strong. Reiki automatically adjusts to what the baby needs.
 



Q. Can I treat animals or plants?
A. Animals love Reiki too. They seem to have a natural understanding of what Reiki is and its benefits. Once a pet has received a Reiki treatment, they will often let you know that they want more. Plants also respond well to Reiki.
 



Q. Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment?
A. Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.
 



Q. Can it be used to help groups of people or even global crises?
A. Yes, this is one of the wonderful benefits of Reiki and is why it is such a wonderful technique for the new millennium. It allows individuals and groups to do something positive about the challenging situations we see on the news involving so many people all over the planet. Reiki can be used to reduce suffering and help people any where in the world. As more and more people send Reiki to help the world heal, we will move quickly to a world of peace and harmony.
 



Q. Are there any scientific experiments that demonstrate Reiki works?
A. Yes, there are many books written on it.
 



Q. Can you need more than one attunement?
A. Once you receive a Reiki attunement from a proper Reiki Master, it will last your whole life.
 



Q. What is lineage?
A. Reiki is a technique that is passed on from teacher to student over and over. If one has Reiki, than she/he will be part of a succession of teachers leading back to the founder of the system of Reiki one is practicing. In the case of Usui Reiki, the lineage would lead back to Dr. Usui. You need to find someone who through his or her master, has received the direct energy transmission going all the way back to Dr. Usui, and beyond to the lineage of practitioners who were Dr. Usui’s source of inspiration.

Thank you for visiting my website! I hope you will find the information here useful.

As I am offering to help others with their spiritual journeys, I thought I would tell you a bit about my own, not that I am not offering myself as a model, only as a helpful fellow traveller…!

My personal journey has been life-long, involving a lot of personal transformation work. I was born into a traditional Zoroastrian family eventually marrying someone I loved outside my community.
