    Is Reiki energy the same no matter what the style is?

    Post by thehungrycaterpillar on Wed Jun 03, 2009 5:16 am

    Hey!

    Is Reiki energy basically the same no matter what the style is?
    I am only aware of Usui and the Kundalini and nothing else , ofcourse QT, but QT falls under ULFE.

    and

    What determines the style of Reiki, primarily the Symbols? Principles? What sets them apart?


    Thanks much,
    sunny

    Reiki is the phenonemon of expereincing our divinity. We have initiations in which we have the ability to do this. It's the symbols that unlock this for us. In a specific way. Change the symbols, changes the way of interacting with it, sometimes changes what we completely interact with.

    The whole package of Reiki sets it apart from most other modalities.

    what sets styles apart, is symbols, techniques, and the teaching of what Reiki is. Smile .

    Take care

    This is why, imo, different styles will hav e differenty 'feelings' to it.

    Better ask Ole. Though i;m pretty sure Ole was mainstream Reiki before KR.

    We gotta remember what the initiations are for. They're confering on us the sbility to access our divinity. Once we get to level 3, we then have teh ability to pass that onto others. We'll of course have DKM in theres somewhere. Yet, as we are empoered to pass the ability on, we can cgange things, abd still pass something on. As we have the spirituakl empowerment.

    whether one should do this, is another matter, hehe.

    take care

    How come people come up with new symbols? So whatz happening?
    and do the new ones still look 'japanese'??
    The info is that they are 'given'... by who? Reiki or Usui?

    This is interesting...

    Some channel them. some pick them, after reading about them.

    I feel that when a person has recieved the ability to pass 'Reiki' onto another, they can do other things, such as make new styles, and possibly empower tgem, via their own spark if divinity.


    Sometimes this has worked out ok, other times it's just weird.

    thehungrycaterpillar wrote:

    Quite often new symbols aren't japanese related in any way. other times they are variations.

    Hehe, i havn't heard of anyone being directly in contact with Usui sensei. that's not to say some aren't saying it, Smile .

    Symbols have long been used in this way. In fact, the Nazi's used the swastika, which is an anceeitn symbol. It wasn't they liked the shape either, but was part of their occult way of thinking.

    There's great power, and knowledge in symbols. I know 4 straight of the top of my head as good example,s hehe.

    I also have an attunement for that, only the one I have is probably far more effective than the one you've seen.
    I've proved beyond doubt that it works - I'll happly perform the attunement for you, and I'll only charge you $950
    - though you will have to be re-attuned by me on a regular basis

    It will only cost you another $743 for each re-attunement, which I recommend you receive at least once a month, or whenever I want a little spare cash .... pirat

    For sure, Reiki folks know the four symbols. However, do Reiki folks know the power & knowledge within them? Not usually. And when it's not glaring them straight in the face, they assume there's nothing else to learn or discover about the symbols. They're merely relegated to 'tools' that are to be discarded once one has 'progressed' enough. All aboard for the ego-trip, hehe. I know, i was the bus driver.

    Kinda interesting also THC, you never asked me exactly what i was talking about though. Not a direct comment to you, per se, but folks take a Reiki course, and assume they know all there is to know about the symbols. It's not so.

    Studying even slightly, we can see what Usui sensei had wanted to get across in this path. I've always found it kinda exciting, it's almost as if one can step back in time, if 'time' even existed, hehe.

    One of the best things i could ever advise another in Reiki, is go research the symbols. Or, try to get some help. I can't elaborate anymore on them really, i don't know neaough fopr starters. I've also took a blood oath, and don't wish to disembowel myself, as i've been working my stomach out for the impending summer. Yeee-haaaaaaa!! .

    take care

    Oh My Freaking Lord!!
    Thanks for the swipe with that frying pan, you are good, do you cook??!

    Yes, I am guilty of thinking of them as just focusing tools, all be it, powerful, but never bothered to think twice about it.
    I use them, I respect them, practice them but never cared to dig deep.

    If a person is content with it that way, there's nothing wrong with that. There's more to learn though, and ime, it deepens one's perception & spirituality.

    I've been so fortunate, and had quite a bit of time spent on me, helping me with my own questions, and understandings. This has been a personal thing, and it's proper it stays that way, in the main. Particularly since i still don't know a lot of what i'm talking about, hehe.

    James, another question for you, please,
    This one, I will NOT be able to google.... have to count on somebody telling me.. tongue


    In India, when we buy books, like a empty composition book, we usually skip the first page and what we draw on that page is a symbol that looks like a number 2 except the line is drawn longer

    " 2__" (Imagine as if there is no break between the number 2 and the line)

    WE blindly followed it, used it before starting any new projects or using a fresh sheet of paper.
    No feelings or prayer attached except I know it is a symbol for God Ganesh, remover of obstacles..

    My Q is,
    Is there a symbol like that in buddhism too or in any other practices?

    I believe the symbol you mention is drawn at the beginning of the notebook, etc. in order to prevent "Writer's Block" (or "Creative Block")

    Are you asking if there is a symbol in Buddhism (or elsewhere) which looks like the one you described, or a symbol that is used for the same purpose i.e. for overcoming obstacles ('writers block' or otherwise)?

    I've absolutely no idea Laughing

    However, in Chinese and Japanese Buddhism, the Indian Siddham script is used (primarily as deity-bijas; and also for writing mantras, dharani, etc.)

    The symbol shown here is used as a repeat mark (i.e 'ditto') in Chinese/Japanese Buddhist Siddham texts .




    At the beginning of a piece of text, this symbol is often used (though I personally have no idea if it has any additional significance )
