There are many theories
and speculations. In his manual, Usui wrote that nobody gave him this method; that he realized that he received the power
to heal on the Kurama Mt. but it’s hard for him to explain everything, even if he was the founder.
Reiki can be
"understood" by practicing. Many manuals had been written. Many affirmations have been made. Whatever you will read and you
will study, it will be nothing comparing with your practice. Just practice, experience and you will find many answers. Don’t
search outside, the answers are in you.
You can start using
the Reiki energy after an attunement performed by a Reiki Teacher. The instructor doesn’t give you something new, the
attunement gets back in your conscience something you already had. And this initiation is all you need to use the healing
energy in your life. The attunement is made for life, you don’t need to re-attune, even if you will decide to use the
Reiki energy years after it.
You can use Reiki
on adults, kids, plants, animals, food, water, cars, everything.
A standard Reiki treatment
takes about one hour and the energy works on all levels.
