Reiki is an ancient healing technique that can be used to heal yourself, others, animals, plants and the Earth. The Usui System of Reiki (Usui Shiki Ryoho) was founded in the late 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui. Usui Reiki has three levels, each with attunements (meaning your energy is raised to the higher frequency of Reiki energy). Reiki energy can only be channeled by people who have been attuned to it by a certified Master.
Reiki is a very simple technique to learn and is not dependent on one having any prior experience with healing, meditation or any other kind of training. It has been successfully learned by over one million people from all walks of life, both young an old. The reason it is so easy to learn that it is not taught in the usual way something is taught. The ability to do Reiki is simply transferred from the teacher to the student through a process called an attunement that takes place during a Reiki class. As soon as one receives an attunement, they have the ability to do Reiki and after that whenever one places their hands on themselves or on another person with the intention of doing Reiki, the healing energy will automatically begin flowing.
It is a very special gift to receive. It is even more special to share with others.
