So how do we have Reiki in our hands?

If you have read about Reiki and now wondering now, so how do you I get reiki in our hands?

Here in Singapore, the Reiki community offers community events called Reiki Share. Newbies interested in wanting to understand more about Reiki could lookout for these events and simply make arrangements to attend these events.

Looking back when I was first introduced to the idea of Reiki. It was certainly very intimidating, sounds very mystical and really out of this world. All of it is true. Reiki can’t be explained through words, the only way is to experience it. Let me help by clearing most of the mystical aspects of it and concerns, and maybe it will help you to be more willing to give it a go.

Reiki is not a religion, there is actually no system of belief that you need to take on for it to work, the true practice of Reiki has no idolisation of any person or deity. Although it is true that many teachers of Reiki have brought their religious belief and have mixed other new age methods into their practice. You have every right to questions and if the teacher’s ideas are not sitting well with you. Please walk away. Don’t feel obligated by any social pressure that you need to go along with anything if your concerns are not well address.

Let me help you identify a true teacher of Usui Reiki.

Reiki has no belief system that you need to take on for you to benefit from it. Meaning you don’t have to change your diet, change your lifestyle to benefit from it. Reiki has no need to idolise any person or deity or any entity for you to benefit from it Reiki has no prayer that you need to recite for it to work. Some teachers do use some incantation to bring intent and focus to the healing. But in a real sense of Reiki, there is really no need for it to experience Reiki. Therefore, again you don’t need to change your belief or take on any belief from your Reiki teacher to benefit from Reiki.

So what is Reiki then?

That’s why its so difficult to explain what Reiki is and what Reiki isn’t. Many people and Reiki teachers are drawn to Reiki for very different reasons too. Everyone has very different experience with Reiki as well. Some say they experience a flow of energy in their hands, whereas others don’t feel anything, but they notice the people they are sharing Reiki with noticeably feels “peace”, “good”, “better”. Some share that they feel warm in their hands. This is by far the most common, but I have felt “cold” hands too. A chill from their hands, yet I still feel the “healing touch”. Naturally, because of this mixed message and inconsistency from practitioners of Reiki have created mystic, mystery and worst misinformation and confusion about Reiki.

When I teach Reiki to my students, I use the analogy of magnets to “help” explain how we attune people to Reiki.

Some people are naturally born gifted with a healing touch much like a natural piece of magnet from the ground. We know this is true. Regardless of race, culture or religion, we know some people are born with healing gifts. Here is the trouble, if you asked the gifted, how they do they do it? They would just tell you they don’t know how they did it. They could try to explain but not in a way that after they do, you would be able to do it too.

Back to the analogy of the magnets, if you tried to wonder why do magnets attract iron and metals. The best answer you could ever get is its called “magnetic energy”. Okay so what is magnetic energy, and you will be shown examples of what magnetic energy can do. Attract opposite poles of another magnet, attract and stick to metals. I think you get the idea.

Here is another fact, if you put magnets in a cord of copper wire, electricity is produced. You don’t need to believe in magnets to experience the benefits of electric power when you switch on the lights or use your mobile phone, do you? Reiki is quite similar in that sense. In the case of Usui Reiki. The originator of the healing touch is Dr Mikao Usui. Dr Mikao Usui is our natural magnet from the ground, our natural gifted “magnet”. Like the magnet, if the magnet struck a piece of metal in a certain way, the piece of metal now takes on all the properties of the original magnet. The metal piece doesn’t change its physical appearance, but it sure is permanently magnetic now.

To further use this analogy, if this piece of permanent metal goes on stroking other pieces of metals. All the pieces become permanent magnet now without every losing energy of its own. In the same way, I have been “magnetised” or “attuned” to Reiki by my Reiki master teacher so would you become “magnetised” to have Reiki in your hands too. You will be on your own right be a Reiki gifted person, with the gift of healing touch in your hands. You don’t have to hold my beliefs for it to work. It just works that way.

How can Reiki help you?

Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei pronouns as “Ray” can mean Spiritual, Divine, Life, Source and the word “Ki” is the same word in Chinese “Chi” refers to Life force energy. Western references commonly termed this as “universal life force energy”.

For the Chinese speakers its “ 灵 Ling”, “气Chi”.

Just in case, you are going to very quickly pass this off as some quack and woohoo new age. Let me share that this idea is not new or wacky at all. For those of us who believe in God. God is omnipresent and source of all things good and in the eastern traditions, “气Chi” is the foundation of Chinese traditional medicine, wellness and spiritual well being.

More recently, science has also made reference to it as quantum sciences, and Dr Bruce H. Lipton PhD gives reference to how just thoughts are energy and how it affects the human body, shared in his book “The Biology of Belief”. Dr Wayne W. Dyer PhD has also written about this very extensively in this subject like his books “ The Power of Intention”. Reiki when used as the healing method, we are in the allowing our body and mind to re-calibre to return to a balanced state, an allowing to heal itself. The author Joe Cross mentions this in his book “Fat sick and nearly Dead”, everything in nature can heal itself, for example, a wound internally and externally. We kind of need to keep the environment clean, give all the nutrients the body needs and free from harmful bacteria and stress and the body can heal itself. Reiki can be a potent aid in doing just that.

For those who seek a spiritual experience, a spiritual truth, it allows for a deeper connection to your spiritual truth whatever it may be. It’s not a religion, so don’t be concerned exploring Reiki would change your religious belief. Reiki is just a method, and it is not a religion or belief. After all, spiritual experience and spiritual truth is an experience and not just words. I think it is beyond words that’s why it is so essential for me to share this. So how can help Reiki help you?

For those seeking physical healing of an illness, Reiki is a method brings a convenient application to what both Wayne W. Dyer and Bruce Lipton’s work into actual use.

For those seeking emotional healing of trauma or constant worrying. Reiki is a method of allowing all of us to let go and be allowing and hence be free of the pain and suffering what anxiety prevents us from to moving on and being open to seeing new possibilities what the future might bring. For those seeking the purpose of life, meaning, the spiritual truth it most certainly is the experience for me personally, so much so that made me so passionate about teaching it sharing it and making it my current life work to show and share it with as many people I possibly could.

The Law of Attraction and the answers to the truth

diving_into_the_sun
By now, who has not heard of Law of Attraction from the movie and book “The Secret”. Like so many, the movie has changed my life overnight. The teachers that were mention in the movie all have became mega stars if they were not already superstars.

Suddenly, all the life coach to religious leaders and sermons in church  from every corner of the earth seem to quote and somehow managed to relate to it and give life examples from it. I too am guilty of it. But hey its true. It does work, it seems to beautifully explain my past happiness, success, failures and failed career, relationships everything. I have manifested my dream job and lost it when I started worrying. That idea led me to the ideas of quantum physics, hypnosis and reiki ever looking for ways to tame the forces that govern my emotions my state of mind.

Being the IT guy that I am, I had to find the answer. I had to debunk it. I need to find the way to make sure I can control the “law of attraction”. I need to know how I can get everything I want all the time, every time.

What have came full circle in this quest is an old pray: Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Infact, this very verse of the bible seems to be talking about the law of attraction isn’t it?

When we seek to find the answers to our questions, we search through the internet. Well interestingly, You will always be able to find supporting articles to whatever angle you are searching  and preconceive notion. If you don’t believe me, just try it.

For the moment, I have a strong option that reason for this is because the laws of the universe seem to work in a way of bi-polar opposite being not 2 things but rather 1 of the same thing in opposite ends of the scale e.g.

Cold <—->Hot,   Bright <—> Dark,  Love/Peace<—->Hate/Anger,

If you are feeling cold, complaining, blame the world blame the people blame the universe is not going to make you feel any warmer. Switch on the Heater, wear more warm clothes, move to a warmer location would change that wouldn’t it. Its also true from feeling Hot to cold.

So the the question is how would the the answer to what you seek serve you? Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are both right, whether its true or whether its a lie it seems then to make no difference at all.

So is there really a blue and a red pill like depicted in the movie the Matrix? It would then boil down to which thought believe would lead you peace and happiness and which would lead you to pain and misery.

Is there really a single truth? Or both end of the scale is both the truth. The old saying ” What works for you doesn’t necessary mean it works for the other”, After all we all want different things to make ourselves happy isn’t it? So just choose now to be happy. There is no where to go and nothing to find. Its here, its now, its in this moment in you already at this moment. Its how you choose to respond to life, there is no after “I find it or obtain it then I will be happy.”
