True Spirit of Reiki Part I
Excerpts from the forthcoming book, “True Spirit of Reiki”
What is Reiki
Reiki means the energy of God (or universe). The energy that is available in the entire universe is also available within us. Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei means Universe and Ki means energy. Energy means, an ever-flowing energy and ever giving universal energy.
Energy inside is same as energy outside
The man is composed of the physical body. To operate the body some energy is required. Each and every organ in the body and each and every system in the body are permeated by the flow of Reiki.
If the same energy is available inside the body is also available outside the body means, there should be some uniform flow of energy or some form of connection between them.
We are connected to a permanent source of energy
Assume a ball of energy which is 10000 times bigger than the Sun God. The Divine ball is always Purnam (complete by itself). It means whatever energy is spent for the sustenance of the universe will never be depleted.
How do we replenish our energy?
But as a human being, even if we walk for about 10 minutes our energy is depleted.
How to replenish this energy throughout our life is the basic approach of Reiki.
Turn the anger away
When I met Balakumar and told him about my mother who is 85 years old, he asked me to learn chakra rotation, to become composed instead of getting angry, whenever my mother throws tantrums.
I learnt energizing of Chakras, rotating them clock-wise from Shobana, as instructed by Balakumar last week. I tried the same at my home.
The very next morning, I went to my mother, who was always angry for no reason. I quickly rotated mentally, my Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras clock-wise, at optimum speed, to receive the Universal Divine Energy.
As I neared my mother, she SMILED. I asked her how the breakfast was. She will normally criticize something at least. That is how the whole anger drama starts. However on that day, she just said, “The Idli and chutney was SUPER. Thank you”. I have not received this “thanks” or “love” from her, for the last three years.
Thank you Shobana, thank you Naran and thank you Reiki!!!
When somebody is angry against us, it is normal for us to retaliate. In terms of energy, it shows that we are sympathetically resonating with the other person.
Anger attracts anger. When there is anger, the solar plexus chakra rotates anti-clockwise, projecting or sending out our emotions outside, and thus maintaining our anger.
Instead of thinking why that person is angry and trying to change him, we concentrate on ourselves. We look within and intentionally rotate the solar plexus clock-wise. When any chakra rotates clock-wise, it comes back to receiving mode – receiving universal energy. When it starts receiving energy, our anger subsides and therefore there will be a shift in our energy field. Then the opposite person has to change too.
To bring the anger down, the solar plexus chakra has to rotate at optimum speed and that too clock-wise. In addition, when the heart chakra also rotates clockwise, it receives universal energy (love) and love will be generated inside our heart and will flow to the opposite person.
