Reiki energy is regarded as life energy at its most effective-with the maximum
vibration. It is considered to have an almost divine quality and as such includes
everything, in a world where problems and disorders are deemed to be due to the feeling of
detachment from the world. There is no division of Reiki energy into positive and negative
forms but when a person undergoes a session of therapy, they allow the energy to be taken
into themselves with beneficial effects. Essentially, those receiving Reiki energy decide
subconsciously just how much of the life energy is taken in.
Those who use Reiki regularly often find they are more joyful, lively and their own
in-built energy is enhanced-almost as if their batteries had been fully charged! Existing
conflicts within the person are broken down and there is a greater vitality, leading to
relaxation and a stimulation of the body. As this improvement develops, the natural
processes of renewal and removal of toxins are enhanced and rendered more effective,
ultimately opening up more of the body to the life energy.
Body organs such as the skin, and protective systems such as the immune system are
improved providing the individual is prepared regularly to undertake Reiki and in the
first place to undergo an attunement or initiation into Reiki energy. The initiation is
merely a means whereby the universal life energy is bestowed through the Reiki master. The
master acts as a channel and a link with God to release the healing power.
An initiation is not absolutely essential but it allows the individual access to the
universal life energy, which is used rather than their own life energy. Also, an
initiation conveys a greater capacity for using Reiki energy, with no associated tiredness
and further, it provides a protective mechanism against any negative manifestations.
