Within the philosophy of Reiki we nonetheless discover the duality of vitality and matter, however right here they're nonetheless a part of the similar expertise: our earthly existence. As we noticed above, even on a mechanical degree we will solely perform when we have now the proper mixture of each. Vitality and matter collectively create our expertise of life on the extent of kind – that's, on Earth. Using a Taoist idea, Mikao Usui subsequently referred to as this Earth vitality.
Earth vitality consists of every little thing we have to exist on this degree: meals and shelter, physique and clothes, earnings and work. With out these, life is somewhat tough. We have now incarnated on planet Earth and this set-up comes with wants. When sources are scarce, hassle looms: we discover ourselves hungry or homeless, sick or chilly, poor or unemployed. Actually, more often than not there’s one thing in our life that isn’t good. Our meals isn’t wholesome or our home too small; we aren’t properly or our garments aren’t the newest trend; our earnings isn’t adequate or we hate our job.
After all, in all these circumstances we’re searching for change – change for the higher. Bodily therapeutic, a brand new job, a loving accomplice – or only a barely simpler life! I’m positive I’m not far off in suggesting that in a method or one other virtually everyone is searching for change. Reiki might help with all of this.
Within the system of Reiki, Earth vitality is represented by the Energy Image. This helps to carry the facility of Reiki into the right here and now. Or, to remain within the wording, to carry it all the way down to Earth.
However, opposite to what we are sometimes given to consider in our science classes, the extent of kind (the Earth and different planets and stars) isn’t the whole universe. The place had been we earlier than we had been born? The place are we going again to? There's a world past this one.
This different degree of the universe is the spirit realm. Right here we discover guides, angels and bodhisattvas and all of the people who find themselves in between incarnations. We're well-known to these on this world and have a number of buddies there – in contrast to, because it typically seems, on Earth.
This ‘parallel world’ is consistently current and once we increase our vibrations (or the fellows up there decrease theirs), we will get involved with it. Then we will obtain steering, help and perception – or possibly simply really feel a presence.
New concepts and creativity, concord and steadiness are the results of this connection, which Mikao Usui aptly referred to as Heaven vitality. Not within the sense that that is paradise (though it most likely feels prefer it in contrast with our expertise on Earth), however within the sense of being the unseen, the before-and-after. A better realm, with lighter, finer vibrations. One thing above.
To deepen our consciousness of our connection to the spirit realm and subsequently allow us to divulge heart's contents to steering and instinct and discovering extra concord and steadiness in life, Usui launched the Concord Image.
Opposite to outer look, nothing on both the extent of kind or the extent of spirit operates independently. On the extent of kind, every little thing is in the end related (see quantum physics) and it’s the identical on the extent of spirit (in any case, every little thing there's nonetheless vitality, as many experiences from that realm present). And, as we have now simply seen, the 2 ranges are themselves intently entwined.
Individually, we could think about ourselves to be a lonely being floating round within the universe. However that is an phantasm. Whether or not we prefer it or not, we’re related to the whole world. Which, in fact, brings tasks. All the pieces we do has an impact on others.
We are actually tapping into the thought of oneness – and getting a lot nearer to the guts of Reiki. That is what Reiki does: it brings us nearer. To different people, to different beings, to nature, to that means, to ourselves. And, sometimes, it will get sensible: Reiki makes use of this idea. Each Reiki therapy is proof that we're connecting with an individual on a deeper degree, even when we hold our arms away from them.
