Every human being is in a dilemma not knowing what can be the solution to keep him healthy, active and free from all sorts of illness. Therefore in search of health and happiness he goes in a whirlwind searching for right ways and means to keep him fit and in this search he comes across. Allopathic, Ayurved, Homeopathy, Naturopathy or energy therapies Acupuncture, Acupressure, Yoga, Meditation etc. Isn’t it minded bugling? And mind you. I have mentioned only 0.1% of the total therapies available on the face of this globe.
When we choose any therapy for example allopathic or ayurved, we just keep on visiting doctors and spending time, Energy and money to ease our ailment, which may or may not be cured, and if cured, will be only at physical body level and not at reason level.
Today everyone know that 98% of the diseases are psychosomatic, so until and unless that psychosomatic reason is removed, the illness will keep on coming back because these problems are emerging out of the negative karma, viz, greed, lust, anger, jealousy and delusion.
The gift of healing rests within everyone. It is not the gift given only to a few. It is your birthright. Everyone can receive healing and everyone can learn to heal. Everyone can heal them self and others.
You already heal yourself healing, even though you may not call it that way or know about it. What is the first thing you do when you hurt yourself? You usually touch the hurt part of your Body, you may even grab it help stop the pain. This physical instinct also sends healing energy to the hurter part. If you relax and keep you hands on the injury longer then what you normally do, you will find an even deeper healing taking place.
Every mother touches, holds, kisses or caresses her children when they are in pain. She does the same for her other loved ones. If you take these simple reactions and begin to study them you will find that when you touch someone whom you love very much, there will be a stronger effect then if you are touching someone you don’t know. Most likely you have given your touch a special essence- the essence of love you have for that person.
When you are joyful, happy, energized or in any other kind of good mood, your touch will be more pleasant to other than when you are in a bad mood. These personal day-to-day experiences, which I’m sure, have taken place since we were cave dwellers, and which have grown in to the basis of laying hands of healing.
The ancients were aware of healing power coming from hands. Each culture explored and utilized this power from within. In his book ‘future Science’ John White lists 97 different cultures over the face of globe, were there its own name’s to the healing or the life energy fields. Life energy fields have been known in china and India over 5000 years.
Knowledge of this energy was, due to unknown reasons, lost to us and we started depending on the other remedies for curing our illness/diseases. In the last part of 1800 Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan rediscovered this ancient healing therapy and named it as “ ” “rei” means universal and “ki” means life energy. This universal life energy or divine life – giving force it is the same energy which was being used by bhagwan Buddha and later on by Jesus Christ, who was the last person known using this energy in his healing touch.
This REIKI energy is a total positive energy or a still better expression will be “the greatest vibration of life energy available to human beings.” This vibration has a divine quality, it allows us to make contact with the impulses alive in the word, thus conveying “oneness” all human problems like physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are ultimately due to illusion of separateness from the world.
The REIKI energy is based on the strict rule that a recipient of REIKI energy decides for himself on the sub- conscious level whether and how much life energy he will take in. reiki is never sent or forced to the body, but rather drawn in the recipient. In other words reiki is taken and not given.
Some people hesitate to become involved in REIKI – seminar, because they have either a very little understanding of its basic principles or they have a strong self- made belief that it is a hoax. As it is today we tend to put too much emphasis on rationalization and. Logic. People generally need some external form and the outset for their orientation to break through this block.
