Reiki Treatment – Usui’s Original Hand Positions

Reiki Treatment – Usui’s Original Hand Positions

It is said that in the original Usui system, only five formal hand-positions were used; and these focused on the head and neck. This would appear to make  complete sense considering the major meridians and collaterals mapped in Traditional Chinese Medicine converge at the head. Easy access to the whole of the individuals physical and energetic system can be achieved through these five hand positions. A Reiki treatment session would first involve working with these five positions followed by treating the specific area of the body where imbalances were present. Treatment could be given with hands either in direct contact with the client, or alternatively with hands held a few inches out in the client’s energy field.

Essential Tools – Hibiki and Boyosen

Essential Tools – Hibiki and Boyosen

Having recieved Reiki attunment, the student should be able to sense the reiki phenomenon in the palms of their hands.

Sending Reiki Through The Blood Stream

Sending Reiki Through The Blood Stream

After  receiving a Reiki attunement / initiation we are instructed to practice Reiki on ourselves using the self healing hand positions as part of our initial 21 day clearing cycle.  Continued development and strengthening of our Reiki channel  should then become a regular part of our ongoing personal journey with Reiki.  Another simple technique we can use to stimulate optimum health is to send Reiki through the bloodstream. After all, our own Ki naturally permeates the bloodstream, so why not enhance it with Reiki. * Remember, where your attention goes – energy flows ! The method is simple and can be done standing, sitting or lying down. First,  Do whatever you do to connect with your Reiki and “hara” centre yourself, bringing  your awareness to your Seika tanden,  (two finger widths below the navel), watching […]

The Gokai or 5 Principles of Reiki – Why Bother ?

For the Reiki student, these five teachings are at the heart of the personal inner Reiki journey and perhaps they seem a little odd to be the foundations for a healing modality, but on closer inspection, they open the way to a more harmonious state of “Being” and increase your connection to Reiki. By focusing on these concepts and integrating them into your daily life, you will feel more energised as the negative emotions and thoughts are challenged and the positives are promoted.
