Reiki is one of the oldest and best known systems of hands-on energy healing, first used by the Tibetan Buddhist monks thousands of years ago and re-discovered in the 1800′s by Dr Mikao Usui. The Usui system of Reiki is a very simple but powerful healing technique that is easily given and received by anyone.
The name Reiki is Japanese in origin and is loosely translated to mean “Rei – Unversal or Godforce”, “Ki – (like Chi, Prana, Mana) life force energy. So Reiki is a universal healing energy which flows both from the Godforce or Higher Consciousness, and from the earthly Lifeforce, Breath, Bread of Life.
Reiki has three levels of study with three seperate initiations or attunements which attune the practitioner’s energetic system to the specific frequencies of Reiki. This creates a clear channel through which the Reiki energy can flow as well as initiating a process of growth and transformation for the initiate. Many people experience a detoxification process after receiving a Reiki attunement and suddenly give up smoking, drinking or other unhealthy habits.
What makes Reiki distinctly different from other hands-on healing modalities is the use of ancient symbols. There are five traditional Reiki symbols which carry the power of an ancient lineage. These symbols carry instructions for healing which are recognised in the body and energetic field. They are like a sacred code, a language which was designed to bridge cultural and historic barriers.
Reiki was one of the first healing modalities that I learned in 1995 and each of the three attunements has come at a significant time in my life, giving me an extra boost forward in my personal development and spiritual path. Therefore I will always recommend Reiki as one of the most simple yet potentially powerful practices you can invite into your life.
I am teaching the following Reiki workshops at the Butterfly House – Centre for Transformation & Personal Growth Cape Tribulation.
In the first degree of Reiki you will be attuned to receive the Reiki energy with specific symbols placed into your auric field to open, clear and activate your chakras. You will experience the Reiki energy flow through your hands and practice giving and receiving Reiki with your classmates. We will go over hands positions, learn how to self-heal with Reiki and how to treat clients.
Once attuned to Reiki I you are qualified to give Reiki sessions to others and you may start your own business as a Reiki practitioner. I will provide you with a Reiki I certificate and course notes. Reiki I is a full day course - energy exchange $250 including one personal session before the course.
In Reiki II you will learn three traditional Reiki symbols, how to draw them, their meanings and uses. Reiki symbols are used in healing and can also be used in daily life to harmonize energy, remove obstacles, increase power and focus your intention. You will also learn how to do Reiki Distance Healing and we will practice this together.
You will receive attunement for Reiki II, certificate and course notes. Reiki II is a full day course – energy exchange $250 including one distance session before the course.
In Reiki III you will be attuned to the Master level of Reiki and will become a Reiki Teacher. You will learn two additional traditional Reiki symbols to use in healing and will learn how to give attunements to others.
The Master Level of Reiki is a powerful initiation into your own self mastery and you must be ready to accept your role as a conductor and teacher of the Reiki tradition. You will receive attunement for Reiki III, certificate and course notes.
Reiki III is a full day course – energy exchange $250 including one personal session before the course.
