The distinction between Ki (life-force vitality) and Reiki (non secular vitality, or common life-force vitality) is:
• Ki is the vitality that surrounds and permeates every little thing.
• Reiki is a particular band or frequency of vitality for therapeutic and self-healing that works synergistically with Ki, however at a better vibration. Reiki comes straight from the Supply (or God, the Creator, All That Is) and is directed by that Increased Intelligence for therapeutic (or wholing) something, whether or not animate or inanimate.
As a result of Reiki vitality is vibrating at a really excessive fee it's not usually seen to the human eye, however its use may be detected by a Kirlian digital camera, and a few folks do see it, normally as a white/ gold stream of vitality just like the spiral form of the DNA double helix. Nonetheless, in contrast to Ki, which is current all over the place and in every little thing, Reiki doesn't movement robotically by means of everybody from delivery. It flows solely by means of individuals who have been “attuned” to its vibrational frequency. This attunement, or non secular empowerment, is the way in which by which the therapeutic capability of Reiki is handed energetically from a Reiki Grasp to a scholar throughout a sacred ceremony, which is a crucial a part of a Reiki course or workshop.
The non secular empowerment that's carried out by a Reiki Grasp is analogous in nature, however much less highly effective, since Dr. Usui acquired the entire understanding and the total power of Reiki in a single single empowerment from the Highest Supply, which additionally allowed him to grow to be enlightened. As he had been concerned in non secular observe for about 50 years by that point, he was little doubt energetically much better ready for such an amazing expertise and huge quantity of therapeutic vitality than any of us can be.
In Usui Reiki there are a selection of non secular empowerments unfold out between the assorted ranges, in order that the scholar has time to “acclimatize” to the degrees of vitality concerned. We normally name these sacred ceremonies initiations or attunements, as they “provoke” the scholar into a brand new life with Reiki (provoke means to start) and “attune” the scholar to the distinctive vibrations of the Reiki non secular therapeutic vitality (attune means to convey into concord with). The attunement units up an lively channel within the scholar, by means of which the Reiki vitality can movement from the Supply, by means of the scholar’s vitality physique—the crown, forehead, throat and coronary heart chakras—and out by means of the fingers.
The movement of Reiki after attunement.
In impact, this attunement “reopens” an current channel inside our vitality physique to our enlightened selves—our Soul/Spirit/Increased Self—that a part of us that's at all times and utterly related to the Supply/God/All That Is. Whereas the Reiki could seem to return from exterior ourselves, getting into by means of the crown chakra, this solely appears that manner as a result of we have now a restricted consciousness of our entire existence, and can't “see” the total extent and potential of our being, our Soul/Spirit/Increased Self, extending manner past the confines of our bodily our bodies.
The “non secular empowerment,” which takes place throughout the attunement, is simply that: it empowers part of our spirit, Reiki, which we didn't consciously know the best way to entry earlier than, in order that we grow to be conscious of it for the primary time. As quickly as college students have acquired this attunement they can entry and use Reiki therapeutic vitality for themselves or to deal with others. They may proceed to have the ability to achieve this for the remainder of their lives, as this therapeutic vitality comes by means of our Increased Selves, channeled from an inexhaustible supply—God/Creator/All That Is/The Universe—at any time when we wish it to.
This “on the spot” acquisition of therapeutic capability is likely one of the issues that makes Reiki distinctive, however might be additionally probably the most puzzling side of it to Western minds. We aren't accustomed to something so priceless being achieved so effortlessly, but within the East non secular empowerments are a well known and accepted manner of buying vitality, data, knowledge or perception. Nonetheless, though Reiki could have its roots in Japanese non secular practices, it's not a faith, so it may be made accessible to anybody, no matter their private beliefs. Additionally, Reiki doesn't depend upon an individual’s mental capability or degree of non secular improvement, so folks of all ages and from all backgrounds can purchase the power to channel Reiki therapeutic vitality merely and simply by attending a Reiki First Diploma class and receiving the attunement. No specialised data or expertise are required, so Reiki is a really accessible manner of studying the best way to assist your self and others.
