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.
Don’t be Sympathetic! Be Empathetic!
What happens, if we get contaminated, when we heal others?
Even if you do flower remedies these types of problem may afflict you. For that matter, we are affected even if you practise Homeopathy. However what do we do in Homeopathy or Flower Remedies? We shouldn’t get any problem as we are not healing as the flowers and the homeopathic pills do the healing.
Even then if it happens then it means we are sympathising with our patients. The Bach Flower Remedy Walnut breaks this unwanted link between you and the patient.
In general, we are getting involved with the patient and are anxious to correct their problem(s). Remember, we are only giving remedies. We shouldn’t worry whether it is working or not. For the same reason, we shouldn’t expect why they haven’t informed us on what’s happening to them.
Irrespective of knowing all these, sometimes we do get involved. If you think you may be influenced by their state of mind, then take the Bach Flower Remedies Centaury and Walnut.
We don’t have to put a white light shield, as some energy practices suggest. We are always shielded. What happens is that when we hear somebody’s cries, we get involved. In this type of situation, Bach Flower Remedy Red Chestnut also would help.
The universal energy clears and cleanses all unwanted and unseen energies, from the source of the healing place. It’s the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol!
