Reiki Symbols – The Gift of Life Force [07 May 2011|02:38pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

There are two schools of thought about Reiki symbols. The first says that Reiki symbols are sacred and not to be shared with those who are not initiated into Reiki. It is thought the Reiki symbols will not work, and will be diluted if they are shared with someone who has no knowledge of how to use them. The second school of thought is sharing the Reiki symbols with everyone is really what the energy of Reiki is all about – UNIVERSAL life force. And thus, it should be available to all to share. Seems there is no right or wrong here, just which school of thought you subscribe to, or what your Reiki training has been.

There are still some old Reiki masters who will tell you right off the bat that the Reiki symbols are not to be shared with just anyone, as it takes away from the power of them. There may be sense in this argument if you stop to think about the Reiki symbols themselves. They don't mean anything to someone who has no idea what they are or what they can achieve with them. On the other hand, there are so many self-help books on the subject of Reiki and using the Reiki symbols that you might think you can learn how to do Reiki through using a book and teaching yourself.

If the books dealing with Reiki symbols are to be believed, you should not only be able to learn the symbols, but attune yourself and become whatever level of practitioner you wish. While this sounds simple, there really is a whole lot more to it than just reading a book. Particularly when you get more advanced in levels.

Without getting into too much about the symbols, as in drawing them, we can certainly tell you the names of the symbols used for the lower levels of Reiki energy channeling. If you are just starting, the first level of Reiki requires no symbols to work. It does however need an attunement from the Reiki master who is training you. Level 2 symbols need to be given to you by the Reiki master along with an attunement to the second level. Self-help books indicate you can do attunements yourself. That is still a highly controversial level and a word of caution here. Do energy work with respect and caution.

But, back to the Level 2 symbols. There are three of them – the Power symbol, the Mental/Emotional Symbol and the Distance Symbol. The Power symbol means "by Imperial decree, put all the power of the universe here". The Mental/Emotional Symbol means "God and humanity become one, to create a new habit". The Distance Symbol means "May the Buddha (enlightened one) in me connect with the Buddha in you to promote peace and dignity."

The Leading Facts about Reiki Healing [05 Apr 2011|11:36pm]

[ mood | calm ]

If you have the fair interest in knowing Reiki and how it is practiced, the best thing to start with is that of getting familiar with the healing procedure. Reiki imparts the knowledge on how the present life can be lived to the fullest and to let go of all the worries and stress. It is necessary to put away the concerns that bother the mind, the spirit, and the body because it is the only way on how a full life can be enjoyed. Reiki healing employs the force that opens the doors in our lives towards the most unexpected and positive things that can occur. As soon as we allow our hearts, minds, and spirits to open up to the wonders of its healing procedure, we can start to live in harmony with the rest of our brothers and sisters.

The Healing and the Healer
As per the believers of Reiki, they manifest the techniques as they abide by the Divine consecration and the sacred covenant that they share with the Creator. Others even have the faith that the ability to heal themselves and others by means of using Reiki is innate. The technique is both a therapy and a way of allowing one to live the present day at a given moment. The healing ability is empowered as the person decides to accept his responsibility in getting attuned to it. Apart from acting as a form of treatment, it is also a lifestyle that encourages an individual to do good deeds in their entire lifetime.

The Early Beginnings
The methods of healing through Reiki is said to have been rooted from the age old Tibet and was actually rediscovered by no less than a Japanese man by the name Mikao Usui in the latter part of the 1800s. When Mikao Usui died, his loyal followers took over the responsibility and continued the practice. They established clubs and alliances which still exist to this day to teach the variations of the Reiki method. The teaching is basically based on the learner's level of spiritual maturity. In the early times, the club was exclusively for the Japanese so the foreigners were never allowed to partake in the course. However, one Japanese woman by the name Hawayo Takata introduced the same teachings in the western world in the 1970s. Nowadays, the knowledge on Reiki is known to all parts of the world.

Using Reiki Methodology
If there are some people who question the efficacy of Reiki, it is but necessary to believe that it truly works. The person has to be simply open to accept the healing energy which is always around. You don't necessarily have to feel anything during the healing process. If one fails to receive the energy, it means that the process is obstructed by the imbalanced chakras. In order to fully enjoy its effect, it has to be rebalanced. It may take a while but with the help of other Reiki healers, the process of recovery can be made faster.

It is but important to do the Reiki healing procedure with all of your heart and mind. Your action has to be driven by your greatest emotion called love. It is by opening yourself up to the whole process that you will only be able to receive its rewarding effect. Good deeds are also going to be returned to you.

The Purpose of Reiki Healing

Reiki healing has been in continuing practice for several years now. It is recognized to be a great tool that is aimed at personal treatment and growth. Reiki energy is rooted from an optimal spiritual source which never fails to come up with the best results. The healing applies for the spirit, the mind, and the body which has to serve as the guide in an individual's journey called life. Reiki likewise aids in the enhancement of the personal talents. Of course, all of these can only materialize if you prefer to get attuned to this sacred practice. There exists a sacred covenant that has to be maintained and nurtured for always.

Learning the Program of Self-Healing

For you to be able to acquire the depth of the knowledge on Reiki's self-healing process, you must develop a sensible time for practice. You need to master different techniques. The way on how you execute it will move you forward near your goal or pull you away from your desired aim. In the course of self-healing, the appropriate technique must be used and thus should be learned by you. If you are qualified enough to do so, you may choose to develop your own healing system which will work to your advantage. If you have your spirit, mind, and heart into Reiki, you will surely succeed.

The Allotted Time for Self-Healing

The Reiki system of self-healing is best done by regularly allotting at least 30 minutes to yourself. It is time that you realize how important it is to value yourself and therefore spend some time for your complete healing. You may use either the scanning or hand positions as your technique. Your focus should be on those regions that require healing the most. As the session begins, you will be carefully guided as to where your hands should go and which body part should you touch. You have to feel everything that you are doing. Let the energy flow and feel it vibrating. While the session is going on, ponder on your daily activities and where your life is heading. It is by means of thinking over your practice in life will your quest for self-healing produce a great impact. This is a kind of technique that promotes the development of a healthy attitude. More so, this self-reflection technique will similarly give you more room for the generation of very creative ideas and ways on how it will be best to handle your own troubles.

Self-Healing in Groups

Again, Reiki treatment can be administered to yourself or to others. Hence, you may form a special group with the rest of the Reiki self-healers whom you know and do the session altogether. This practice is a lot more effective because you don't only get to heal yourself but the rest of your group mates as well. A daily practice can do wonders. You will heal each other faster. The complete healing is also sure to materialize. The secret to it is the sharing of energy and support as the group gets on with the session.

Being in a group will give you the opportunity to discuss among yourselves the things that you want to get healed with. A once a week meeting will generate a more serious focus and a deeper purpose in each and every one of you. Let the prayers guide you through as you convene in the Reiki healing practice.

Apache Tear Meditation [27 Mar 2005|12:30am]

diviningself
[ mood | energetic ]

After reading the post by godsgrin on sacred geometry and exploring INSIDE crystals I tried meditating on that possibility.

Lately I have had a hard time relaxing and just "letting go". I marked the corners with my crystals, and lay back trying to relax. I am not used to mediating without a request, so my mind didn't really know what to do.

So ... I asked for Guidance in how to relax and just "be". As I drifted near sleep state, I called out once more for guidance and was shown a peaceful vista, a glen/cove type place with a waterfall. I was drawn towards the rushing water and felt at home there. I went into the waterfall and then noticed an opening behind it. There was a female within the cave and an alter with my stones cast in a circle. The girl was blond and thin and had her back to me and walked further into the cave but I couldn't go that far, nor did I feel as though I wanted to. I also sensed someone lying on the floor, as if ready for healing and I felt connected to both that person and the blonde.

I lost the connection with the waterfall glen at that point and drifted amongst the blackness around me. I received a few messages and unfortunately I can not remember them now - but then I spiraled quickly into the darkness, with two bright stars with me. I felt drawn into one of them. I thought of the apache tear stone in my left hand and realized/thought(?) its the snow flake/white spot on the stone!

I followed the path to the light and then this ... hehe Brightly lit, high energy fairy buzzed all around me and slammed into me! I was convulsed with energy and light in the most amazing proportions! It was CRAZY! I felt the energy from the 4 corners washing over me and soon I was IN the star and energy just kept pouring in from the apache tear.

White light washed over me and the waves followed the rythem of my breath. It was - AMAZING!

Soon the energy tapered off and I came up from the vision. I thanked my guides and the corners, and elements. Blessed Mother Earth for her love and sat up, feeling rather light and tingly.

It was a great night!

Hello All,

I stumbled across this group/community while searching for other LightWorkers. I have recently (within the past month or so) been introduced to the concept of LightWorkers, just to realize I have followed this patha nd my calling my whole life. I have had two readings done by a woman trained by Doreen Virtue and am STARVING for more information.

I hope I can find answers and help others along their path.

So ... HI!!! :D

May Love & Light Always Shine Brightly on Your Path

The Child [02 Feb 2005|09:23pm]

lightworkers
[ mood | enthralled ]

Okay. So when my Uncle Kelly moved here from Boise, we got to talking and realize that we have a lot of the same beliefs and views on life. While discussing philosophy the conversation ended up with us sharing experiences with each other. Kelly was telling me about what he believes to be a spirit, a small boy, that has followed him. Every time he moves, within a month or so, he will see the child again, always out of the corner of his eye and always only for a split second. He also mentioned a cat that he has never really seen, but that would jump up on his bed and curl up with next to his legs. He would reach for the cat, thinking that it was his pet Erwin, but nothing would be there.

The first time Kelly told me about the child, a mental picture formed in my mind of a child around 10 years of age, with blond-white hair cut in what I call the bowl cut ( where it looks like someone laid a bowl on top of the childs head like a hat and used the edge of it for their reference line ), with blue eyes. He was always wearing a shirt with a white collar and short sleeves, that was striped red and either a white or a yellow. The red stripe being two to three inches wide and the white/yellow stripe being about a quarter inch. I can't tell if they are jeans, or some kind of kahki but his pants are dark blue, and in an older cut style, classic cut I guess you could call it. And white lace up tenny-runners. Physically, the child is average for his age, and thinner than most of the people in my family ( who tend to be heavy set ). This child is far from gaunt, he looks healthy, but not belonging to this family, which was one of the options my uncle came up with for why the spirit follows him.

Well, tonight Kelly was telling me that he was sitting in his chair when he felt that he had 'become the focus of something' and turned and had seen the child again, this time clearer and for longer than previous times. I was compelled to ask what the child looked like, and when he started to describe the child, I finished the description for him while he nodded enthusiastically.

"What color were the big stripes on his shirt?"
"Red."
"Right!! And..."

And now in Unison:

"White tenny-runners!"
"White tennis-shoes!"

I myself have never 'seen' the child that I'm aware of. So this makes me wonder if I had picked up on my uncles mental image of the child. However I have always had a clear picture of what the childs face looked like, while my uncle claims that he only saw the boys face clearly yesterday.

So, any thoughts on how I also know what the child looks like, or why he would be following my uncle?

Pleiades...? [31 Jan 2005|08:16pm]

Okay, only one member has confirmed, but perhaps getting a conversation started will help. Plus, I really want to know more about this.

Reading my friends list someone referenced to Pleiades. I had heard the name before, but don't really know anything else about it. I googled some and got some basic information, but I still feel like I'm missing the point. So, anyone care to share some info?

Welcome! [29 Jan 2005|01:17pm]

lightworkers
[ mood | hopeful ]

After inviting quite a few people, I feel like I should leave a little message for you.

I hope that many of you join, and pass the word to others. I have a great desire for this community to become a hot spot for people interested in these topics ( which are outlined, but not limited to, the interestes posted in the userinfo of this community ) to come and discuss and share information. Although I do have information to share, I must admit that the making of this community does have a rather selfish reason, an easy one stop shop area for information that I crave as well as others. It's so much easier to ask a question and have 15 people give varied opinions, information, etc to.

So, I hope that many of you join, and bring others with you.

Now, a brief explination of the name 'Rainbow Paths'. I've recently gotten very interested in Chakra Healing and lightworkers, as described by Doreen Virtue in many of her wonderful books. As I'm sure most of you know, Chakra's are points in your body through which energy flows. There are seven main ones, starting at the base of your spine ( root chakra ) and working their way up your body to end at the crown of your head ( crown chakra ). The Root Chakra is ruby red in color, the next one is orange, yellow, and so forth. And as always, I am always trying to listen to my inner self and follow my path, hence the name.

So, thank you for at least taking a look, and I look forward to having many enlightening discussions with you.

- Tarla
