Reiki is not associated with any material which is visible, nor does it have a shape, nor name.
There exists one Supreme Being, the Absolute Infinite, a Dynamic Force that governs the world and universe. It is an unseen spiritual power that vibrates and all other powers fade into insignificance before it. Therefore, it is Absolute!
This power is unfathomable, immeasurable, and being a Universal Life Force, it is incomprehensible to man. Yet, every single living being is receiving its blessing daily, awake or asleep.
Different teachers and masters call it the Great Spirit; the Universal Life Force; Life Energy because when applied, it vitalizes the whole system; Ether Wave because it soothes pain and puts you into deep slumber as if under an anaesthetic; and the Cosmic Wave because it radiates vibrations of exultant feeling and lifts you into harmony.
Reiki is a radionic wave like radio. It could be applied locally or, as in short wave, a distant treatment could also be successfully given.
Reiki is neither electricity, nor radium, nor X-ray. It could penetrate thin layers of silk, linen, porcelain or lead, wood or steel, because it comes from the Great Spirit, the Infinite.
It does not destroy delicate tissues or nerves, it is absolutely harmless; therefore, it is a practical and safe treatment. Because it is a universal wave, everything that has life benefits when treated viz. plant life, fowls, animals as well as human beings, infant or old, poor or rich.
It should be applied and used daily as prevention. God gave us this body, a place to dwell, and our daily bread. We were put into this world for some purpose. Therefore, we should have health and happiness.
It was God’s plan, so He provided us with everything. He gave us hands to use them to apply and heal, to retain physical health and mental balance, to free ourselves from ignorance and live in an enlightened world, to live in harmony with ourselves and others, and love all beings.
When these rules are applied daily, the body shall respond and all we wish and desire to attain in this world is within reach—health, happiness and the road to longevity. Being a universal force from the Great Divine Spirit, Reiki belongs to all who seek and desire to learn-the art of healing.
Reiki knows neither colour, nor creed, nor age—old or young. It will find its way when the student is ready to accept it. He is shown the way. Initiation is a sacred ceremony and the contact is made. Because we are associating with the Divine Spirit, there is no error nor should we doubt. It is Absolute!
With the first contact or initiation, the hands radiate vibrations when applied to the ailing part. It relieves pain, stops the blood from an open wound; your hands are ready to heal acute and chronic diseases, in the human beings, plants, fowls, and animals. In acute cases, Reiki application for only a few minutes is necessary. In chronic cases, the first step is to find the cause and effect.
It is not necessary to undress the patient completely, but it is better to loosen all tight clothing so that the patient may relax, lying on the table face up. Most important is to find the cause of the illness.
Start treatment from 17 points on the front. Turn patient over, treat the 7 points on the back.
During the treatment, trust your hands. Listen to vibrations or reaction. If there is pain, it registers as pain in your finger tips and palm. If the patient has itch, you get itch in your hand. If the disease is deep and chronic, it gives a deep pain; if it is acute, the pain is a shallow tingle. •
As soon as the body responds to the treatment, the acute ailment disappears but the cause remains. Dig into the cause daily and with each treatment the cause starts dissipating.
After thus treated, finish the treatment with a balancing which adjusts the aura. Place the forefinger and second finger on both sides of the spinal column and give three downward strokes to the end of spinal chord. Only in diabetic cases are the strokes reversed.
The above treatment is called the foundation and it requires an hour or more, all depending on the complications and seriousness of the case.
Going through the body in minute detail, the hands become sensitive and are able to determine the cause and detect the slightest congestion within, whether physical or mental, acute or chronic. Being strictly drugless and a bloodless treatment, Reiki will adjust the body to normal.
In about four days to three weeks, we find a great change taking place within the body; all internal organs and glands will begin to function with much vigour and rhythm.
The digestive juices are put out in a normal flow, the congested nerves slacken, the adhesions break away, the lazy colon gets organized, the faecal matter drops from the walls of the intestines, and the gases eliminate.
The toxin, accumulated in the body over many years, finds its way out through the pores. It is a sticky perspiration. The bowels increase, become dark and strong in odour. The urine increases like dark tea, sometimes white as if flour is stirred in water. It lasts four to six days. All the above mentioned beneficial changes result from just one treatment.
When your body has undergone these changes, you are assured of a big general overhaul of the intestinal organs taking place. With such good cleansing, the body becomes active. The numbed nerves regain sense of feeling, appetite increases, sound sleep becomes natural, eyes sparkle, and skin glows like silk. With new blood and good circulation, nerves and glands restored, it is possible to rejuvenate your body for five to ten years.
At the time of Reiki treatment, it is very important what you consume. With proper food the patient responds faster to the treatments.
In the Reiki health treatments, we are vegetarians, and eat all kinds of seasonal fruits. Nature provides with plenty, but never to waste. Overeating is a sin. Eat in moderation, with a feeling of gratitude, to recognize the Great Spirit who is the creator, who is the All Power to make things grow and blossom and bear fruit.
Come to the table with pleasant thoughts. Never eat when you are worried. Milk, white sugar, and starches are to be avoided when the patient has a weak stomach.
