10 Reasons Why Learning Jikiden Reiki Is So Incredibly Empowering

  • Stress: If you’re stressed, anxious or tired all the time, Reiki gives you simple, accessible tools to improve your energy levels and your state of mind. People report unexpected encounters with happiness after Jikiden Reiki sessions! *
  • Low immune system: If you’re run down and find yourself catching every bug that is going, being ill more often and longer than most people around you, Reiki gives you a simple and effective method to build up your immune system again.
  • Chronic Conditions: If you struggle with a chronic illness (often difficult to treat with modern medicine), daily self-reiki treatment can improve your quality of life and, over time, your chances of recovery.
  • Cancer: If you or your nearest suffer from cancer, Reiki has been proven to alleviate anxiety, and experience shows that it can be tremendously helpful in lessening the side-effects of conventional cancer therapies.
  • End-of-life care: Reiki can be a wonderful way of accompanying the dying, bringing pain relief, emotional acceptance and comfort to everyone involved.
  • Natural Health: If you want to rely on pharmaceutical drugs only in emergencies, and generally prefer a more natural path to health and recovery, then Jikiden Reiki is ideal as it works with your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
  • Physical Rehabilitation: Physical healing processes tend to happen a little faster and with better outcomes if supported with Reiki treatment. This includes broken bones, which have sometimes mended in record speed with frequent Reiki support. In my experience, stroke patients can also benefit tremendously.
  • Wound healing: For all manner of small injuries, such as cuts, scrapes, bruises, sprains and even burns, the Jikiden Reiki First Aid method for minor ailments can be used, which tends to ensure fast, clean healing results. Learning this method is invaluable if you have small children!
  • Your child’s immune system: Jikiden Reiki is for you if you want to help your children build strong natural immunity, so that they are in the best position to easily shake off any illnesses that may come their way.
  • Household use: This makes Jikiden Reiki the natural port of call in the household, bringing speedier recovery from everyday illnesses such as colds and viruses, plus it is instantly available in cases of small injuries.* The founder of the practice, Mikao Usui, referred to Reiki as his secret method to invite health and happiness, not without reason I think.

Why I’m so grateful to have Jikiden Reiki in my life

A guest post by Elaine Rainey

AFTER COMING TO THE END of a lengthy busy period at work, I’ve been dedicating some time to long and luxurious Reiki self-treatment.  For me, it’s a rare treat to set aside exclusive time for such things and it feels wonderful.  As I place my hands on my body, I can feel the tension easing in my shoulders, the heat building up in my body and something gently softening in my chest.  I’m feeling so grateful to have Reiki in my life, making me feel so good.

Elaine Rainey, ecologist

When I look back through my diary at what I have achieved over this past few months, I’ve surprised myself at how I have managed to navigate this with my mind and body remaining in such a good place.  It reminds me of author and film producer Jeff Brown’s words:

“There is a time to adventure heartily into new possibilities, but there is also a need for quiet integration time on the self-creation journey. We can have all the peak experiences we want but the real work happens between the peaks, while laying down and integrating on the valley floor. Growers are inch worms. Lasting transformation is an incremental process, one soul-step at a time. This may frustrate us, but it’s the only way to craft an awareness that is authentic and sustainable.”

Jeff’s words made me realise that this is exactly what I have been doing over this past few months, slowly but surely keeping Reiki integrated into my life, whenever and wherever I could, in the spaces between the busyness.  And it has paid off with a level of productivity that I didn’t think would be possible a few months ago, when I looked out towards the daunting list of tasks that lay ahead of me.

The purpose of this story is not to advocate Reiki as another ‘tool’ to help us become more efficient, productive versions of ourselves.  It is simply to express gratitude to a simple yet powerful practice that, if committed to over time, can transform our lives.

Jikiden Reiki training has been one of the best investments that I have ever made for my health and wellbeing.  I am so grateful for the many ways that my Reiki practice has changed my life.  For me, however, the most wonderful change has been to the level of contentment I now feel.  This is not a kind of contentment that succumbs to the ebb and flow of life’s experiences.  This kind of contentment has resilience, it’s authentic and unwavering.  It’s the kind that has slowly crept up on me while I’ve been faithfully placing my hands on my body, night after night, in dedicated, regular practice.

Elaine RaineyElaine Rainey works as an ecologist and Jikiden Reiki practitioner and junior teacher based in Scotland, UK. Jikiden Reiki is a traditional style of Japanese Reiki, making a strong effort to keep the practice as close to its original form as possible. Elaine works with fellow Reiki practitioners and teachers to promote the benefits of Reiki, to support others through their healing journey and to encourage people to learn this wonderful healing art for themselves.

In September 2013, you will be able to learn authentic Reiki with Yamaguchi Sensei , the head of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, right here in Scotland. Until 2000, this level of in-depth understanding of Reiki practice had been locked inside Japan, with the first Westerners training in Kyoto in 2000, and it was only from the early 2000s that Tadao Yamaguchi started travelling to many Western countries to spread Reiki in its original Japanese form.

No need for words: Whether you process your feelings by talking or in silence, Reiki can help

Reiki trip to Japan

Reiki works so well with very different personalities: those who have a need to talk through their experiences (who often gain considerable clarity with Reiki treatment), and those who choose to keep their inner landscape private. Importantly, Reiki works equally well for those people who prefer privacy, a way of processing feelings and experiences without going into or sharing their ‘story’. Over the years, I have worked with Reiki with a number of very ‘private’ clients, what a relief to them not to have to talk….and still come out so much lighter.

Panic Attacks: Going round the bend at 25 miles per hour

Life has been a little intense recently. When one family member after another picked up what seemed like a particularly virulent type of ‘flu, I have truly been thankful for Reiki practice, not only to nurse our sick children through fever broken nights and ease their cough-rattled chests,  but also to help me keep on my legs despite being slightly ill, too. We also had, it seems to me, more than our fair share of uncertainty and the type of emergency circumstances that require you to constantly think on your feet in order to come up with ever new ideas how you can manage, even though your normal ways of doing things are not available right now. Quietly, I notice just how much Reiki practice has changed me, as I deal with one situation after another relatively calmly and constructively. It brings back to mind a fellow Mum who commented that I made raising three kids look easy, as I hardly ever seemed to get my feathers ruffled. (Not true by the way, no one can get under my skin like my own, very lovely, kids). (more…)

"What do you get from Reiki?" ~ "Peace"

“What do you get from Reiki treatment?” – “Peace.”  One word can say a lot, don’t you think? With Reiki, many clients experience deep states of relaxation, the type of brain frequency that seasoned meditators  achieve with years of practice. In the words of a medical doctor commenting on a well-known Reiki blog: “Reiki brings the benefits of meditation to people who cannot sit still by themselves”. (more…)
