Lesson 1 Introduction

REIKI LEVEL 1
Introduction to Energy
All things are infused with energy. As a species, we have been fascinated by this energy and the power it has within our own bodies as well as the world around us. This energy that permeates our bodies goes by many names such as chi or consciousness. At the point of conception, this energy infuses our bodies and is the intelligence that helps each cell to divide and find purpose to become the trillions of cells that make up our amazing body.

Science has confirmed the presence of this energy and using tools such as Kirlian photography, developed in the late 1930’s can capture visual proof.

With this understanding, practices have been developed to help develop and balance this personal energy. Reiki, Qigong, Tai Chi, Meditation, Yoga, and Feng Shui are just a few of the many ways individuals can enhance the flow of this energy.

We are all born with the power to heal ourselves. Our bodies are in a constant state of maintaining balance. It is that energy within that helps the body to repair and replace aspects of itself as needed.

In the distant past, our ancestors had an innate wisdom that they used to heal themselves and maintain vitality. Over time, with our focus shifting to what is outside of ourselves, we have lost the ability to clearly see within.

In comparison to our own personal energy, Reiki is the energy that connects our higher self with everything around us. We can use Reiki energy to help us balance our own energy and bodies.

We are in a time where science is beginning to validate the existence of the energies that surround and exist within each of us.

The Buddhist proverb: When a student is ready, the teacher appears is often true in the case of Reiki. You may have found this course at just the perfect time in your life.
Reiki is the intelligent life force that connects us to what we need.

Things to Do to Enhance Your Energy

  1. Consume only food and drink that provides your body with nutrients
  2. Create habits that help maintain a clear state of mind
  3. Meditate
  4. Create positive mental patterns to help you process life

Our potential is tremendous but in order to become the powerful beings we were meant to be, we need to change our focus. Reiki is not only a tool for physical healing, but mental and spiritual growth as well.

When Dr. Usui first formalized Reiki, he intended it to be a tool for spiritual growth. The physical healing that occurred was a side-effect of the increased awareness.

Reiki is a gift that is given to each and every one of us. By opening your mind to this energy, you will be more capable of seeing the synchronicity in your life and be able to let your life flow. You already have access to this amazing life force.

This course will show you how to use it. We intuitively use Reiki energy. When we were children and were hurt, we were soothed by our Mother’s caring touch. A symbolic kiss to make it better actually did ease the pain as Mother and child used Reiki energy to soothe and heal. We naturally hold and protect areas that we have injured and in doing so are also drawing in Reiki energy to those parts to help them recover.

This energy is plentiful and is available to everyone. There is no single person or organization who holds the rights to this energy. Reiki is not trademarked or patented. The only thing you need to access Reiki energy is the intention to align yourself to it and then the willingness to surrender your intellect so your heart can lead the way.
