Reiki Symbols – The Gift of Life Force
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
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.

Ephemeral mists "moon ritual"


Ephemeral Mists is the newest side project by composer Brett Branning (The synthetic dream foundation & Abandoned Toys). The debut album, "Moon Ritual" is out now on Mythical records.

The sound of the project is best described as downtempo ambient electronics mixed with ethnic world musics in the vein of "Karma" era Delerium, Amethystium, and Dead Can Dance. Its an incredibly powerful cd to use as yoga music and Reiki music. A beautiful creation and I highly recommend it to anyone into newage styles of music.

Intro and Request for distance healing
Hello, my name is Kyra, I'm new to this community today. I was referred by a fellow livejournal friend as I'm currently seeking some help via distance healing. I recently have undergone some traumatic events (mom has essentially decided I can't live at home anymore - I'm 27), as well as 4 years or so of chronic illness/eating disorder/financial problems-poverty/inability to find suitable work. I am looking forward but have a lot of energy blocks holding me back.
I am intending to learn energy work myself but haven't yet got any training. I deeply appreciate any assistance/energy work anyone is able to offer! I am in Wisconsin.
Thank you kindly!
Namaste <3

 I am going to do another full moon cleansing/blessing ritual on the 18th of JULY 2008..

If you would like some positive energy sent your way please reply back to this thread via a comment and I assure you I will write your name down and focus my energy that night for you..

You are also, more than welcome to join me in this ritual this night by simultaneously joining in and doing your own ritual at home.. (the invocation can be found on my LJ homepage if you wish to use it)  

We all need positive energy in our lives. =) BELIEVE IN KARMA.

Blessed be friends.

how do you get rid of someone elses energy?
 I'm not sure if I am the only one who experiences this.. maybe because my clairsentient ability is quite high, im not sure..

When I am talking to someone and or consulting with them I can easilty tune in to what they are feeling and react according to it.  

I'm only asking because I had a person who I was reading for yesterday who was very very emotionally upset-
 to the point of being angry and mad at her situation and just couldn't see the clairity that I was trying to offer her..

It was so hard for me to get rid of her energy link after the reading, that had to take a breather -literally- outside, to get in touch with natures natural positive energy and balance myself once again.

So here is the discussion question to which I am posting now.

 Q:   How do you as an empath get rido of the psychic link after the session is complete?

Healing Hands

Sometimes it seems that if I place my hands on a stressed or sick area then it heals. I had a nasty bug bite that had turned red and itched really badly and after I focused on healing the area then suddenly the red and the itching went away. I also seem to be able to channel healing with my hands. I'm very interested in different ways of healing and I'm curious if anyone has any tips to strengthen your the healing power within.

best way to get rid of staph skin infection??
hello,
i have what the doc says (swab yet to be confirmed) is a staph infection / impetigo. it's super bad on my face, and kind of sprinkled in bits all over the rest of my body. it's super super itchy, and has small blisters and/or clear yellow crust. (sorry i know this is gross)
anyway i'm freaked because i've heard of these kinds of infections hanging around for ages. the doc persribed fuciden cream ( an antibiotic) which doesn't really seem to be working. i'm also putting oil of oregeno on it which helps with the itching. but it's still red and infected looking. Please help!!!

Intro...
I've been a part of this group for a few weeks now and I thought it was best that I introduced myself... explain a little about why I am here, etc.

My name is Samantha. I am sometimes called Le'drha, or Le by my friends, online. And yes, I do like to go by the name Daisy... as it is my favorite flower. You can see something about me by checking out my LJ... and my Info page, if you like... of course...

I've been learning, practicing and doing... many things with Light over the last few years... About... somewhere over 3 years now... Channeling Light and using it for healing and such. I'm not trained, but I would like to be. The Light healing I do is pretty close to Reiki, without all the symbols and such... It is simply me... sending Light... and asking it to heal the person... Sometimes I direct the Light... as I can sense/see sometimes what is wrong within the body of the person, both spiritual and physical, and so as I am able to see this in my mind... I am able to direct the Light to repair and heal. I really don't do much... It's the Light that does it, really... If anyone is familiar with Light energy... and healing via this medium, perhaps they will know what I am talking about.

I've always been a healer... and I likely always will. It is what I enjoy doing... It gives me the most joy in life... and my intention is to become a Physical Therapist with holistic training and certifications and degrees and such, as well as massage therapy to augment my training... and my practice. Likely... I'll be 50... by the time I'm done with school... and I've come into this late in life... but... it is what I love to do... I love to love... and I love people... even when they aren't so loveable... I just want to help heal others...

And that's me...

Bright the day to you all, I am new here. I am 32 years old and a natural healer/empath. I haven't been taught in a school, but I do have knowledge and memories passed down. I am an avid reader, and I have just begun my schooling in T'ai Chi Ch'uan. There are many correlations between oriental medicine and Western "herbal' medicine. I want to try to find a way to combine them both to work together and help bring understand forth to others who are in search of it. I found this community purely by accident, well I should stay by happenstance. I hope that I can make a few friends here and gain some insight as well as share some of my knowledge with you.

That being said, I hope you all have a wonderful day bright with your inner light, and may it grow and expand to touch those you love.
