Reiki: simple is good
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” - Albert Einstein
Reiki is a natural healing modality that relies on the healing intention of the practitioner for its effectiveness. It is a simple process that can be of great benefit to the individual’s overall health and wellness.
It does not require a lot of knowledge or practice to become adept at the process. In fact, it is an instinctual part of our being.
What’s the first reaction to stubbing a toe, bumping the head, or banging an elbow? We grab the inflicted area, hold it, and focus healing to the spot. Often the comment “I’ll be alright in a minute” becomes part of the healing intention.
What do we do when a child gets hurt? We place our hands on the hurt and ensure the child that “we are going to make it better”.
Other animals respond in a similar fashion. They bring a focus and intention of healing to the damaged area.
Reiki simply helps to facilitate what our system is doing naturally. It is beautifully simple yet amazingly effective.
Something that is simple to do, sadly, is also simple not to do. To achieve these benefits we need to actually practice as much as possible. There is no need to wait for an injury or illness. Self healing with Reiki should be an important part of our daily routine.
Do not let the simplicity of Reiki scare you away. Unfortunately our cultural experience has taught us many mistaken ideas. It is often suggested that something that is simple is somehow of lesser value. That is not the case with natural law. Most of the superb processes of nature are perpetual, automatic, and requiring little effort.
We are completely connected to this natural order. Using Reiki to aid our personal healing and helping others with their healing is simply a wonderful benefit of our creative self.
The power of intention and prayer has played a significant role in the healing of individuals throughout history. In Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean, testimonials of successful healings have been etched in stone providing a valuable insight for future generations.
“Believe me, men, I have been dead all the years I have been alive. The beautiful, the good, the holy, the evil were all the same to me; such it seems was the darkness that formerly enveloped my understanding and concealed and hid from me all these things. But now that I have come here, I have become alive, as if I had lain down in the temple of Asclepius and been saved. I walk, I talk, I think. The sun, so great, so beautiful. I have now discovered men, for the first time: now I see the clear sky, you, the air, the acropolis, the theatre.”………… Papyrus Didotrana 360 BC
The healing temples viewed and treated the whole person. This work emphasized the interactive unity of mind and body.
In his best selling book, The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles, Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. describes it as “. . . the new perspective on human biology does not view the body as just a mechanical device, but incorporates the role of mind and spirit. This breakthrough in biology is fundamental to healing for it shows us that when we change our perceptions or beliefs, the nervous system sends totally different messages to our cells. In effect, we reprogram them. This new biology reveals how people can have spontaneous remissions or recover from injuries thought to be permanent disabilities.”
This new look at biology also works hand in hand with our new look at physics and are improved understanding of our universe.
“The concepts which now prove to be fundamental to our understanding of nature ... seem to my mind to be structures of pure thought, ... the universe begins to look more like a great thought than a great machine.” James Jeans, in The Mysterious Universe.
The success of Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Healing Touch and other similar modalities depend on the intention of the practitioner. Each of the practices has its own unique traits. However the one factor that must be present to guaranty success is the intention and focus on wellness and healing.
The effectiveness of intentional healing is well documented, discussed, and written about. The beauty is in the simplicity of the practice. Focus on healing and then healing occurs.
