    What's your primary reason for being involved in Reiki?

    Post by Milarepa on Mon Mar 28, 2011 3:36 am

    Initially for me, it was out of healing. Now, to be honest, i don't feel complete without it. It grounds me quite a lot. It'd be cool to hear some of your own personal reasons.

    warmest wishes

    I was hooked into Reiki by virtue of "accidentally" (there are no accidents) being in the right place at the right time, combined with a large helping of natural curiosity. Although the healing facilitation aspect is certainly a great to have, personally, I just can't imagine life without the comfort and centeredness and groundedness that both self-reiki treatment and repeating the precepts bring.

    My primary reason for being involved in the practice of Reiki is connection: physical and social, by conducting Reiki sessions, classes, sharing and chatting to other Reiki practitioners - but also spiritual connection: a sense of connection with something beyond the physical, which is also a component of Reiki sessions but also attunements, meditations and absent healing.

    By connection, I don't mean that there is a sense some something separate connecting but a realisation and greater awareness of the connection that already exists.
    Smile

    Also, for the balance that the practice of Reiki brings to mind, body and life in general!

    Smile

    Reiki came to me during my healing journey,
    I was discovering many alternative healing
    tools at that time.

    Six months after I was healed I was drawn
    to Reiki & became a Reiki practitioner and
    moved on to RMT level.

    It is now part of my personal daily practice
    along with the 5 principals. Reiki keeps me
    balanced,harmonized & healthy. I enjoy
    facilitating and teaching Reiki. sunny

    The reasons for my being involved have changed over the years. It's not that one reason was ever wrong or lesser in importance in another, but simply because I have changed so tremendously with the passage of time and experience.

    In the beginning (1993), I was involved in Reiki because a friend beckoned me to do so;
    A few years later it was because the energy I experienced when providing treatments and attunements was undoubtedly the purest healing energy I had ever encountered in my life;
    Later it was because I was called to teach Reiki;
    Later it was because I was teaching Reiki;
    Later it was because I was writing about Reiki;
    Later it was because I was gaining a much greater understanding of myself;
    Today (2011), it is simply because it is what I do.

    Throughout all of those changes and within all of those reasons, a silent reason has prevailed: My greatest desire is to help others awaken to themselves, to discover the pure healing light that is already within their heart.

    I initially Started out of curiosity and a searching for something spiritual, something real, mystical communion. My searching stopped with Reiki and meditation.

    reiki internal or external

    Post by marty on Tue Apr 05, 2011 11:47 am

    I think Reiki is both for me but it always starts as internal. It is so transformitive. It allows you to realize that magic is real... and this magic is you and within you. It is beautiful bright and so joyous. It is what you truly are if you do not dwell in the awareness of the personality. It is what we all are. Beautiful bright joyous awareness. Free from thought, free from attachment. And what makes it even more wonderful. This awareness of what we are can be shared with others. So I would say the internal aspect allows us to experience ourselves as we truly are and the external aspect allows us to share this awareness with others. Through this we are all healed.

    What else could we ask for...?

    Internal or external? More thoughts on this topic?

    It's as if we journey into a dark basement within ourselves. It is a place we have never gone before. It's dark and dirty but we start to bring things out and get rid of them. As we continue to clear this place out we realize that it is massive. Eternal and as things clear out it becomes beautiful and bright. We begin to realize that we love to dwell in this place. The more we dwell in it the more beautiful it becomes until eventually it becomes where we live all the time.

    Excellant input guys. I'm just at the tail-end of a late nighter, was watching Tron Legacy, so am feeling kinda freaky, hehe.

    Is their an outward aspect of mediation Ben? re: spirituality.

    Marty, does Reiki change, or even effect anything external. Or is it change happens within, and our perception makes things appear to outwardly change?

    Just generating chat. I'll split this into a new topic tomorrow. Unless someone beats me too it, hehe.

    I started Reiki out of curiosity because I was selling healing crystals online and it became quite apparent that most of my customers were Reiki practitioners. I took a Reiki Level I and II course and immediately realized that this was the spiritual path I have been looking for. It has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I will be taking the Reiki Master Level course this fall.

    You know, when I try to think back, I can't remember exactly how I got into Reiki. I remember I was researching medicinal herbs back in 2006 and was looking into some online courses for that and I think that's how I happened onto a Reiki course and signed up for it and completed Reiki Level I online. I was already practicing a mixture of Western Buddhism, Christianity, Gnosticism and Animism (I know that's a mouthful), so Reiki fit in very well with my varied beliefs. I did Reiki Level II later and am working on Level III now. I'd had an interest in the healing field for a long time and have used herbs since the late 70's for my personal use. So as far as why I initially got into Reiki, I was drawn to it as a healing method because I wanted to help people.

    What I didn't realize at the time I had my first attunement was that it would lead me on a spiritual journey, even more intense than my initial journey with Buddhism. I left Reiki briefly for 2 years and I agree with Salman. I felt a big vacuum, a "Dark Night of the Soul," if you will. That went on for two years. Then I had what you would call a spontaneous spiritual awakening again in December 2010, this time of a Christian flavor and was eventually led back to doing Reiki. I just went back to practicing this July and am slowly starting to feel centered and at peace with life again.

    So while Reiki started out as a healing modality for me, it has ended up being a spiritual path in combination with Buddhism and Christianity. One thing that I am a little angry about (I know, I know - "Just for today...") is that my first Reiki teachers did not tell me that Reiki was for life, that once attuned you cannot just "leave" Reiki. Hence, the "void" when I'm not practicing. I also didn't know that when you leave Reiki for a long time the energy channels that have been opened by attunement can get clogged wreaking havoc in your life physically and emotionally. So, I agree with LuvSoulJah that, in a sense, Reiki can be an addiction, although a good addiction.

    So, to me, Reiki is like any other spiritual path you undertake. You keep a little of each spiritual method with you for life, a sort of individual blend of spiritual practice and that's what makes each teacher a little different. Reiki is now definitely a spiritual path for me, not just a healing modality. I hope by looking at it as that, that I'm not diluting the original intent Usui Sensei had for Reiki.
