    What IS Reiki to YOU?

    Post by Milarepa on Mon Aug 08, 2011 1:21 am

    Just WHAT is Reiki to you?

    What does it Reiki mean to you?

    What has it done for you?

    What can it do?


    Let's have a topic in which we set aside any difference of opinion, any debate-based interaction. Let's have a kinda 'brainstorming' topic, (without the one word answers, unless that's what you want!), a topic in which every single sentence form every single person is as important as the next.

    All our members are pretty cool on here, but just incase we slip up, i'll super-moderate this topic myself.

    Share your many varied thoughts, feelings, desires, experiences, hopes, in YOUR path with Reiki, all words, all sentences are important.

    warmest wishes
    Wayne

    To my experience, Reiki is:
    It's something I can feel, have since I was a baby. It's like a stream of warm sunshine, but, this "sunshine" flows through every living thing. It even glimmers throughout a rock or a stone, but it's easier for me to sense glowing and flowing through a person, animal, or plant or bug.

    This energy also can communicate without words to others who have this energy/sunshine flowing through them-- that's maybe why at an African watering hole, the zebras calmly stroll by a relaxing lion. Energy is our first language and is universal, if we feel/listen to it.

    "Doing Reiki" means learning to open my mind, even before getting attuned to have my channels opened so that I can learn to treat others by being a conduit for this incredible, healing sunshine-y warm energy stuff. The attunements were and are honors. I'm so grateful for the learning and for the chance to give Reiki to others.

    Doing Reiki also means feelings of being deeply grateful for the help of any Reiki guides. I seem to grow ever more grateful in my deep feelings, the more Reiki I do.

    "Feeling Reiki" to me means either my hands feel toasty-warm like a quartz heatlamp, or, I feel ginger-ale bubbles coming up through my palms, my left more than my right. Reiki feels like a warm stream of the stuff coursing inside us and through us. Not only my hands and arms feel the effects of directing a stream of energy. Often at the start, my head feels a mellow, swoopy, almost drugged feeling for a minute or two as I start doing the Reiki. Sometimes the tongue gets snugged tight in that space at the roof of the mouth behind my front top teeth-- the stronger the pull from the recipient, the snugger the tongue is held there. Like a suction, almost! What a Face Sometimes the hands not only feel very hot, and sometimes they get soft like a warm homemade sugarcookie.

    I also often experience these feelings inside:
    During self-treatments-- a calm, a deeper understanding that all will be well.
    During treatment of others-- An overwhelming compassion/respect/deep LOVE for the person.
    Sometimes I get a flash of imagery that may have meaning, have an insight, but I always, always feel immense respect, understanding, and a HUGE love for the person.
    I sometimes also sense a Reiki guide there with me. The concept sounds "out there," but he feels kind, gentle, wise, patient, watchful-- a strong sense he will guide me kindly in this. I get the sense to just trust and learn.

    Sorry that was so long! Embarassed

    Lovely descriptions there sunflower and I can relate to all of them..... I love you

    ~~

    what is Reiki to me?...gosh, so many things but ultimately, Reiki to me is Divine Love~~~

    To me Reiki is:

    A catalyst for realising our true nature,opening up to that deep spiritual essence that resides in all of us.
    A tool for self discovery, self transformation, spiritual awakening and awareness.
    An incredible healing gift which works on all levels of being. Which can transpire in a very light and subtle way or impact in a very deep and powerful way.
    A beautiful state of being which makes us feel whole, happy, peaceful, connected, expanded and at one with all that is right and good in the world.
    A soft warm feeling of pure Divine Love.......when filled up with this energy every cell in my being vibrates with that expression of Love.
    A state of being which helps keep us centred and calm in a sometimes manic and crazy world.
    A strange and beautiful energy which can help us transcend physical boundaries and limitations, yet at the same time keep us fully anchored as a human being in a physical world.
    A very real and wonderful spiritual path Mikao Usui helped simplify in order to help humanity discover their connection to Divinity....without the limited dogmatic frills of man made religion.
    An extremely simple yet profoundly powerful tool for direct spiritual experience.

    Some people spend their whole life searching for direct spiritual experience....Mikao Usui helped develop a system where anyone and everyone can have that experience... regardles of faith, colour, creed ...

    Reiki is a spiritual path which unites all peoples and offers the opportunity to see that at our deepest level of being we are all united in the Heart of the Divine.

    Reiki helps us 'keep it real'....we can no longer get away with actions and words that do not resonate with our true nature... Reiki strips away the many external and self-made layers and masks we hide behind..It can be a bit raw and painful on occasion to strip off a new layer which we were convinced was 'our true self'.but once we get over the initial shock of losing another security blanket....our new and shiney self underneath starts to feel quite liberated.

    Reiki makes us shine a big bright light into the deepest darkest areas of our personality..we may not always like what we are faced with..but with each aspect of our personality we face and peel back...the closer we get to the 'real' us.

    Reiki is a blessing in every sense of the word.

    When I offer Reiki in a treatment scenario to another person.....I feel truly blessed....it feels like I enter into the most beautiful sacred space......that sense of Oneness and Pure Love that flows and fills, is the most incredible experience. Everytime I lay a my hands on another to offer healing, it is me that is healed.....for that opportunity I am truly grateful. My heart expands and I often feel moved to tears, its just so beautiful~~~

    Reiki is a state of being I have to foster more....the last couple of years I have been wrapped up in the physical world, caught up in the day to day running of family life...the whispers of my soul have been drowned out by the demands of family affairs...work..paying the bills....etc,etc, etc. But now family life is all good, that quietness has enabled me to hear the whispers of my soul again...*sighs* it feels great!
