The Art of Reiki
Reiki is an ancient healing practice that has undergone an impressive revival over the past few decades. After centuries of being forgotten, it was rediscovered in the 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese scholar and physician who stumbled upon it while researching sacred texts on the healing methods of Jesus. Dr. Usui spent his life developing the method of Reiki and using it to heal the poor, as well as teaching the technique to a few of his disciples.
Reiki attunes the energy centers in the body with the Universal Life Force. Its practitioners have specific hand positions that connect the energy with the client. They spend about five minutes in each position before moving to the next. At the same time, the practitioner may use his or her intuitive ability to help certain areas of the body to heal using the Life Force energy.
There are three degree levels in Reiki. Levels I and II are taught in a relatively short time span and can usually be completed within a weekend. Level III is the master level. Learning and practicing the beginning levels of Reiki is not very expensive, and it a good way to begin experiencing alternative modalities. The fee for completing the third degree can run as high as $10,000.
Another healing technique is good old massage, because it uses hands-on techniques for comfort and healing. There are many different kinds of massage therapies, such as Swedish massage, which is very popular in health clubs and spas. Many massage therapists use their psychic ability to work the part of their client's body that has an energy block. A sensitive, in-tune, balanced massage therapist can also perform very effective healing practices by combining her knowledge of the human body with her intuitive abilities.
Each individual's healing modality is often developed around the specific abilities of the founder. You will hear terms such as
Some of you may actually be able to scan a human body in your mind and develop an image of the person's health by using your five different senses. A medical intuitive can psychically read your body and come up with a diagnosis in actual medical terms. Each intuitive will work differently, but they all have a common goal, namely, the wellness of their clients. If you have the ability to scan a human body in your mind, you may want to get some training in the medical field so that you can effectively communicate the images you psychically receive.
The principle of magnetic healing has been used since Anton Mesmer worked with animal magnetism. He believed that he could rearrange invisible fluid in the body and bring about healing. Today there are magnets of different sizes that wearers believe can cure all kinds of ailments, such as lameness. There are magnetic bracelets and magnets to put in your shoes, and many people claim to be helped by wearing them.
