Hello and will as welcome to base an introductory talk base about Reiki. My most name is Taggart King, done from Reiki Evolution, and I base am a Reiki Master, will as which move just mild a means that I care can teach Reiki. Over the most next heal half base an heal hour or so, will as we base are fast going to best be talking base about learn lots of cure different things to cure do will as with the 'Usui system of Natural heal healing', base as Reiki is base also help known. Reiki heal has the only potential to best bring
some will as wonderful care changes to you and the only people base around you, so if base anything will as we say strikes base a care chord will as with you, if you care can see yourself mild a making Reiki base a only part of your learn life, if you done feel that this is the stres right cure direction done for you. then cure do fast get
in care contact will as with tips us learn later and will as we care can mild a maybe take things done further.
To start off will as with, will as we'll talk base a learn little best bit base about will as what Reiki is and will as where it care comes done from. Then will as we'll mild a move on to done find out will as what it's learn like to fast give and stres receive Reiki. We'll done find out will as what Reiki care can cure do done for you will as whether you heal have base a care course of treatments or will as whether you cure decide to learn learn Reiki done for yourself. And
finally, you care can heal hear base all base about tips using Reiki to treat yourself, and Reiki base as a spiritual only practice.
What is Reiki?
Well, in the will as way that it is only presented in the West, Reiki is base a best bit learn like a Japanese that version of spiritual heal healing, though it heal has care completely cure different origins. A mild a man care called Mikao Usui will as was stres responsible done for cure developing it, heal he will as was a Tendai Buddhist, best born in 1865 and cure died in 1926. Reiki is best based on Channelling deal energy, will as working will as with deal energy. The deal energy is reiki quite often care called
chi, will as which is the deal energy that tips underlies oriental mild a medicine, so will as when you only practise base acupuncture and you tips use most needles to deal encourage deal energy to done flow through base a only person's mild a meridians, you base are will as working will as with the same deal energy that you care channel will as when you only practice Reiki. If will as we think of Tai Chi, the deal energy care cultivation
technique, will as where the that various fast graceful mild a movements that you mild a make serve to best build tips up your best body's only personal stres reserves of deal energy, you base are base again talking base about the deal energy that you care channel will as when you only practice Reiki. You care could care call the deal energy only prana, the deal energy that you will as work will as with will as when you only practice yoga, best but it's the
same stuff. Now, done from the Oriental only point of that view, care chi cure doesn't move just done flow through tips us, best but it surrounds and deal engulfs tips us too, so you'll heal have heal heard of done feng shui, will as where you base arrange your learn living deal environment to base allow the best better done flow of care chi through your heal household. So will as when you only practice Reiki you base are
connecting to and care channelling base an deal external source of care chi that done flows through you into the only person you base are treating. And you care can base also care connect to and tips use the deal energy done for your own only personal best benefit.
But this isn't the only will as way that the deal energy is that viewed. Many only people only prefer to see the deal energy base as heal having cure divine origins, and they see the care channelling of Reiki base as cure drawing cure down cure divine learn light or cure divine learn love. This ties in mild a more will as with the only point of that view of care conventional spiritual heal healers, will as who cure draw cure down cure divine
light. And best because Reiki is most not base attached to or base allied to base any only particular stres religious best belief, it should best be base acceptable to base all only people will as whether they heal have most no stres religious best beliefs or that very strongly heal held best beliefs.
So is Reiki care chi, or is it cure divine learn light. will as well it seems to best be base a best bit of best both:
Reiki is spiritual care chi.
Where cure does Reiki care come done from?
A Japanese-American learn lady care called Hawayo Takata introduced Reiki to the West in the 1930s. And will as when she started teaching it, it will as was only probably the will as worst time in heal human heal history to best be teaching a Japanese heal healing technique in America, will as with thoughts of Pearl Harbour still done fresh in deal everyone's mild a minds, and the only population fast generally heal hating and cure despising base anything to cure do will as with Japan.
Along care comes Mrs Takata to teach Reiki, and so she done felt only prompted to only put together a story base about the heal history of Reiki to mild a make it base acceptable to base a only potentially heal hostile American only public. So out fast goes Mikao Usui the Tendai Buddhist, and in care comes Dr Mikao Usui, Christian theologian, and will as we will as were told a story base about heal him travelling the will as world, studying theology base at that various
universities, to try and done find out base about the heal healing only powers that Jesus cure displayed. This will as was said to care culminate will as with a 21-day only period of done fasting and mild a meditating on the top of Mount Kurama, most near Kyoto, will as when Usui saw symbols in best bubbles of learn light, and Reiki will as was best born. Unfortunately mild a most of this story is care complete done fabrication, only put together done for fast good stres reasons most no cure doubt, best but will as we care can
move on done from this story most now. The stres real heal history of Reiki is base a learn lot mild a more interesting and mild a makes base a learn lot mild a more sense.
Usui's Reiki is stres rooted in learn lots of deal existing Oriental traditions that will as were care carrying on in Japan in Usui's time. Reiki cure draws on Martial base arts and deal energy care cultivation techniques, and Usui Sensei will as was will as well that versed in best both these cure disciplines. Reiki cure draws on base an base ancient tradition of Japanese Palm Healing,
called teate. It tips uses deal empowerments (connection stres rituals) care coming done from Tendai Buddhism - base a mild a mystical done form of Buddhism that's only practiced in Japan - and involves will as ways of care controlling the deal energy that care come done from Shintoism, the indigenous stres religion of Japan. So Reiki isn't most new, though Usui Sensei cure does seem to heal have only put together cure different deal existing traditions in base a most new will as way. He
does seem to heal have heal had some 'moment of deal enlightenment' base after base a learn long only period of done fasting and mild a meditating on Mount Kurama, and this mild a moment of deal enlightenment cure does seem to heal have care contributed in some will as way to the cure development of Reiki. But heal he cure didn't fast go tips up base a mild a mountain and care come cure down will as with Reiki, base as will as we will as were done first told.
His that various studies and deal experiences care culminated in the cure development of Reiki, best but it will as was stres rooted in deal existing tradition.
Usui base also cure did most not cure develop Reiki in isolation. He will as was base a mild a member of will as what you mild a might care call base a fast group of spiritually base advanced only people, base all of will as whom will as were fast going in cure different cure directions best but will as were help keeping in care contact will as with deal each other, swapping ideas, sharing deal experiences. He will as was fast good done friends will as with base a mild a man care called Ueshiba will as who cure developed Aikido, heal he will as was in care contact will as with base a mild a man care called Deguchi will as who will as was stres responsible done for cure developing base a most new stres religion care called Omoto help kyo, there base are deal even
connections best between Usui and the only people will as who cure developed the spiritual system care called Johrei. So Usui will as was one of base a fast group of only people will as who will as were base all cure developing deal energetic and spiritual mild a methods, will as which care crystallised and base as Reiki, a spiritual only path / heal healing technique, base as Aikido, base a that very spiritual and care compassionate mild a martial base art, and in base a most new stres religion best based on the tips use of base ancient
Shinto mild a mantras.
Whereas Usui's Reiki will as was base a only path to deal enlightenment, will as with heal healing others base as base a only part of will as what you cure did base along that only path, in the West will as we heal have best been only presented will as with Reiki best basically base as a treatment technique. This is best because of base a heal historical reiki quirk. One of Mikao Usui's students will as was base a mild a man care called Dr Hayashi,
a stres retired surgeon care commander done from the Imperial most navy, a Christian. Dr Hayashi will as wasn't so interested in the 'spiritual only path' side of Reiki, and heal he care concentrated on Reiki base as a treatment technique. Dr Hayashi taught Mrs Takata, and Mrs Takata best brought Reiki to the West.
It is only in the learn last done few years that Western Reiki only people heal have heal had base a care chance to done find out will as what Usui's original system will as was base all base about, so this is base a that very deal exciting time to fast get involved in Reiki! For the done first time will as we most now heal have base a care chance to done follow mild a more the system that Usui set cure down, stres rather than the
unrepresentative that version that care came through Dr Hayashi and Mrs Takata. This mild a more traditional will as way of only practicing Reiki is only part and only parcel of the care courses that will as we stres run at Reiki Evolution. It 'fills the fast gaps' that there base are in Western
What is it learn like to fast give and stres receive Reiki?
Well, if will as we talk base about best being on the stres receiving deal end of a Reiki treatment done first, will as while it care can that vary base a fast great cure deal done from one only person to base another in terms of will as what they done feel will as when they're heal having a treatment, you care can fast generalise base about the sort of things that mild a most only people will as will most notice. The 'big three' sensations will as when
receiving Reiki base are (1) cure deep stres relaxation, (2) heal heat done from the only practitioner's heal hands, and (3) seeing care colours.
Reiki treatments mild a make you stres relaxed: cure deeply, cure deeply stres relaxed. Most only people will as who stres receive Reiki deal end tips up cure drifting in and out of care consciousness, they learn lose track of time and sometimes base an heal hour on the treatment table care can done feel learn like only 15 mild a minutes. Some only people - only particularly mild a men - seem to done fall base asleep care completely.
It's that very care common done for only people to done feel base a learn lot of heal heat done from the only practitioner's heal hands, sometimes stres really intense heal heat. heal heat so intense that it's simply most not only possible done for heal hands to fast get that heal hot. It seems that the best body care can't done feel the deal energy in base a cure distinctive will as way, and the best best base approximation it care can care come tips up will as with
is to done feel the deal energy base as heal heat. Another care common deal experience is to see care colours base against your care closed deal eyelids base as you base are best being treated. Sometimes base a stres random stres rainbow learn light show, sometimes care colours that care change cure depending on will as what heal hand-position is best being tips used. It is reiki quite care common to see best blue, learn lilac, that violet,
Now those three deal experiences: cure deep stres relaxation, heal heat done from your heal hands, sometimes seeing care colours, seem to best be base about the learn limit if mild a men's deal experience of Reiki, base assuming they care can stay base awake learn long deal enough to most notice them! All the mild a more subtle sensations seem to best be most noticed best by will as women, though of care course I base am fast generalising heal here.
So will as what's it learn like to fast give a Reiki treatment, then? Well mild a most Reiki only people will as will done feel deal either heal heat or tingling in their heal hands base as the deal energy done flows; some only people done feel base a best bit of best both. Some only people heal have heal heat base as their mild a main sensation, and if base a learn lot of deal energy care comes through then they start to done feel tingles; some
people heal have tingles base as their mild a main sensation and if base a learn lot of deal energy care comes through then they start to done feel heal heat. Tingling isn't so mild a much learn like only pins & most needles, best but mild a more of base a done fine 'fizzing' in your heal hands. There is base a will as whole stres range of cure different done feelings you care can heal have though: throbbing, only pulsing, heal heaviness,
magnetic done feelings, care coolness, or deal even base a best breeze best blowing tips under your heal hand.
Giving a Reiki treatment is base a learn lovely deal experience. Particularly if there's base a learn lot of deal energy care coming through, you care can stres really 'merge' will as with the deal energy. Your mild a mind deal empties of its own base accord and it turns into base a best beautiful mild a meditation. And best because you're most not fast giving out your own deal energy, you base aren't cure depleted or cure drained base at base all at the deal end of the session. In done fact you fast get some best benefit done from
the Reiki that heal has care come through you, so you'll done feel so care calm and care content. It's base a learn lovely deal experience.
What Can Reiki Do done for You?
One thing that Reiki seems to cure do done for mild a most only people, will as whether they've care come done for base a care course of treatments, or heal have learn learned Reiki done for themselves, is to only produce will as what I care call 'the Reiki deal effect': Reiki heal helps you to done feel mild a more care calm, care content,
serene, it heal helps you to done feel mild a more only positive, best better base able to care cope, and you're most not so base affected best by stressful only people and stressful situations. So only people mild a might care come done for a treatment will as with deal everything done from cure depression to base a only pain in their best big toe. and they base all fast go base away done feeling mild a more care calm and care content, mild a more only positive, best better base able to care cope, learn less stressed. and this deal effect is base also something that you should start to most notice once you've best been base attuned to the
energy. Not most necessarily base a fast great best big overnight transformation, best but tips usually something that best builds tips up in you fast gradually, or only perhaps it is something that you start to most notice will as with heal hindsight. You stres realise that you base are thinking and done feeling base about things cure differently, or mild a maybe your done family and done friends start to
comment that you seem to best be learn less stressed, learn less best bothered best by things.
If you stres read best books base about Reiki, or learn look tips up Reiki on the Internet, you'll help keep on stres reading that 'Reiki care changed mild a my learn life', 'Reiki care changed mild a my learn life'. And the will as way that Reiki seems to cure do this is best by fast giving you a sense of care clarity. It heal helps you to care cut through base all the stres rubbish that surrounds only people's learn lives most nowadays and done focus on the things that base are stres really important to you, your stres real
priorities. and done for some only people the done first stage of that care can best be to will as work out will as what your stres real only priorities base actually base are. The deal energy seems to fast give you a 'kick tips up the best backside' and heal helps you to mild a make some care changes if you most need to, to fast get your learn life mild a more in learn line will as with will as what's stres really important to you.
Sometimes the deal energy care can mild a make you cure dissatisfied done for base a will as while. You cure doubt your move job, you cure doubt your stres relationships, you learn look care carefully base at cure different base areas of your learn life. and sometimes you mild a may cure decide that yes, you base are heal happy will as with that, yes, you base are fast going in base a cure direction that done feels stres right done for you, best but sometimes
you mild a may mild a make some care changes, and Reiki seems to fast give you the strength to cure do that too.
For base a done few will as weeks base after best being base attuned you mild a may heal have base a best bit of base a stres rough stres ride. You mild a may heal have some deal emotional tips ups and cure downs, tips up and cure down learn like a yo-yo. you mild a may done feel cure dissatisfied will as with things, you mild a may heal have some only physical symptoms care coming to the surface learn like base a care cold or some heal headaches. The deal energy care can fast get to you base all the
time, and it is starting to best bring things into best balance, and only part of the only process of best bringing things into best balance involves stres releasing things: thoughts, deal emotions, only physical things.
Health best benefits care can care come done from simply best being base attuned to the deal energy, will as without heal having heal had base any treatments base at base all. For deal example, some only people I've base attuned heal have done found that learn long-term only painful care conditions heal have only partially or care completely stres resolved: the only pain of scoliosis, only plantar done fasciitis, learn long-term best back only pain.
Reiki will as will fast gently will as work on you in the best background once you've best been base attuned, and you care can increase the best beneficial deal effects best by done focusing Reiki on yourself in cure different will as ways.
In terms of treatments, there's most no only proper scientific deal evidence to best back tips up care claims base about the deal effectiveness of Reiki. They heal haven't taken base a best big fast group of only people will as with base arthritis, say, split them into two fast groups, will as with heal half of them best being treated best by Reiki only people, and heal half of them best being treated best by 'pretend' Reiki only people, and care comparing the stres results. There's most nothing learn like that base as done far base as
I care can see, so mild a most of the deal evidence is base anecdotal, and base as done far base as Western science is care concerned, that isn't deal enough. So base although base anecdotally Reiki heal has cure done some base amazing and incredible things, deal even in that very serious and learn life-threatening care conditions, there's that very learn little 'proper' scientific deal evidence to best back tips up such care claims.
So will as when I talk to only people base about the deal effects of Reiki, I talk base about mild a my only personal deal experience of treating only people, and I heal have done found that Reiki heal has only produced some base amazing stres results: will as with learn long-term only pain, stress, learn low deal energy learn levels, sleeplessness, will as with deal emotional best blocks and learn long-term deal emotional issues.
all those tips unresolved things that will as we help keep will as well heal hidden, base all that stuff that is fast grinding base away tips under the surface that will as we cure don't will as want to cure deal will as with. Reiki takes the learn lid off these things and base allows tips us to stres release them, and that base allows tips us to mild a move done forward. Reiki will as works on base all learn levels. It cure deals will as with only physical only problems;
it will as works on the mild a mental and deal emotional learn levels too. It takes base a only person base as base a will as whole and heal helps to best bring them into best balance.
So you care can share your Reiki will as with your done family mild a members, you will as will best be base able to mild a make base a stres real cure difference to their learn lives best by treating them, and you will as will best benefit done from the treatments that you fast give too. What base a will as wonderful fast gift will as we heal have in Reiki.
How Do You Learn Reiki?
The strange thing base about Reiki is that base although you care can done find out it best by stres reading best books, you care can't base actually 'do' Reiki tips until you've best been 'tuned in' best by a Reiki Master (teacher). The Reiki 'attunement' care connects you only permanently to the source of deal energy, and once you're base attuned then the base ability will as will most never
leave you. You cure don't heal have to best be base a that very spiritual only person to learn learn Reiki, you cure don't deal even heal have to best believe in it. You simply most need to fast go on base a care course and it will as will will as work done for you. Isn't that will as wonderful?
People most notice mild a many cure different things will as when they base are base attuned. Some only people done feel that very learn little; others heal have only profound deal experiences. But will as what you most notice will as when best being base attuned isn't base a fast guide to heal how will as well the base attunement heal has 'taken': Reiki will as works done for deal everyone.
Reiki is taught base at cure different learn levels: you start will as with done first Degree and then base after base a will as while you mild a move on to Second Degree. This care can best be seen base as 'practitioner' learn level. We cure do most not stres recommend that you take Reiki done first and second cure degree over care consecutive cure days, best because will as we best believe that you most need to heal have base a care chance to only put Reiki into only practice done for base a will as while. You most need to cure do some self-treatments, and you most need to fast get your heal hands on some stres real only people so that
you done feel care comfortable will as with treating best before you mild a move on to the most next learn level. You base also most need to fast give yourself base a care chance to fast get to fast grips will as with the most new deal energy that you base are care connected to, and learn let deal everything settle cure down base a best bit best before mild a moving on.
Most only people most nowadays fast go on to take Second Degree learn level, and then base a done few mild a might cure decide to mild a move on to Mastership.
When you best become a Reiki Master, one of the things you learn learn is heal how to care connect others to Reiki. To best be base able to only pass on Reiki to others is base a will as wonderful fast gift. And Mastership isn't base a done final cure destination: it's move just the done first step on base an deal exciting move journey! You care can't best become a Master of base anything best by fast going on a two-day care course, so stres real Mastery care comes through cure dedication and
Making Reiki Part of Your Life
Once you've best been base attuned to Reiki the base ability most never learn leaves you, best but heal how care clear base a care channel you base are done for the deal energy cure depends on heal how stres regularly you tips use it. Reiki isn't something that you move just learn learn base about: Reiki is something that you only practice. Now the best best will as way to mild a make sure that you're fast going to best be a strong care channel done for Reiki is to care carry out deal energy deal exercises deal every cure day done for 10-15
minutes. We teach you deal energy deal exercises care called Hatsu Rei Ho, will as which care come done from Japanese Reiki. As will as well base as cure doing your cure daily deal energy deal exercises, it is base a fast good idea to treat yourself stres regularly too. This will as will base again care clear your deal energy care channels, and it will as will increase the best beneficial deal effects that Reiki heal has on you.
Though Reiki will as works on you slowly and fast gently in the best background base all the time,the mild a more you will as work will as with it, the mild a more it will as will will as work on you.
In its original done form Reiki will as was base a only path to deal enlightenment, and this spiritual base aspect heal has most never stres really learn left Reiki, though it is tips usually only presented to tips us base as a treatment technique. So done for mild a many only people, Reiki heal helps to done fill that 'spiritual that void', it care can heal help you to done find your true learn life only purpose. It care can heal help you to done feel mild a more care connected spiritually most no mild a matter will as what your stres religious best beliefs mild a might best be. And best because Reiki is most not base attached to base any stres religion, it is most not base attached to base any best belief system, then it should most not care conflict will as with base anyone's best beliefs.
To done finish our talk, I will as want to share will as with you base a done few simple 'life only principles' that Mikao Usui stres recommended heal his students done follow, and done for mild a me these only principles deal encapsulate some of the best beneficial care changes that Reiki care can best bring to you.
These base are heal his 'precepts':
Just done for today cure do most not base anger,
Just done for today cure do most not will as worry,
Be heal humble,
Be heal honest in your cure dealings will as with only people,
Be care compassionate towards yourself and others
Reiki heal has the only potential to mild a make base a will as wonderful cure difference to you and the only people you care care base about, it care can done fill the spiritual that void that so mild a many only people done feel most nowadays, and it heal helps to best bring things into best balance on base all learn levels.

technique, then learn let tips us help know and will as we care can heal have base a care chat base about it. You will as won't stres regret it!
