What is reiki

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese term which means ‘Spiritually guided universal life force energy’, similar to ‘Prana’ in Sanskrit, ‘Chi’ in Chinese and is known as ‘Cosmic energy’ to many. It was (re)-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in nineteenth century. Reiki as written in Kaisho old standard style used before World War II and during Mikao Usui's lifetime.

is rei -(literal Japanese) sacred / divine

is ki -(literal Japanese) vital energy / prana / chi

A Reiki session involves transfer of energy (prana) from reiki healer to patient to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of etheric energy centers and meridians in etheric body. It works on all levels, body, mind, and spirit. You can heal yourself as well as others. The reiki master teacher gives this healing ability (ability to tap prana from universe) in a process known as reiki attunement. During this attunement he dissolves your many karmas and make you able to tap this universal energy. After this process person initiated / attuned is known as reiki channel as he is able to channel this energy at his will, whenever, wherever and in whatever amount. Reiki is currently practiced by over a million people worldwide.

Reiki is the science of healing of energy body using the cosmic life energy. Reiki re-aligns one with one's true path, source and spirit. Reiki master works as a channel for this reiki energy healing. The removal of energy imbalance or clearing negative energy by such healing in any portion of the energy body automatically leads to healing in the corresponding part of the physical body. Heartfelt desire alone to become a healing channel for yourself or others is sufficient to put you into the vibration that leads to reiki.

Some salient features of reiki are:-

• Its use is not dependent on one's intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

• Once you are attuned to reiki, you can practice anytime. You do not need to reattune again if you resume practicing reiki after a long time.

• There many instances when people already following some other spiritual practices have reported a significant improve in their practice after they have been attuned to reiki.

• It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

• Reiki never harm or have side effects of any kind. It is only lack of understanding about healing process that such instances occur. 7

Page 8: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

• It has several effects like, it brings about deep relaxation, eliminate energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides vitality in form of 'chi', and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.

• Reiki is intelligent and non-polarized energy. It flows automatically where imbalances exist.• It is not faith healing or placebo healing. It can be learnt and practiced by anyone, even a child.

It is a simple hands–on technique. It is not a belief system. Scientific researches have been carried out world wide.

• Reiki is intelligent cosmic energy. Even if you diagnose the dis-eased person wrongly, reiki will flow where it is actually needed.

• It is not something that we do only when one is suffering from any diseases or life trouble, but, a first step to karmic healing.

• Reiki is free from every bias. It can not be related to any specific religion only. It is unbiased and unconditional form of divine healing.

During a reiki treatment, reiki healer transfer reiki to the dis-eased person. The practitioner places his hands in various positions above the patient’s body. Experiences of reiki treatment varies from individual to individual but most people are found to feel intense relaxation, increased clarity of thoughts, serenity and enthusiasm.. For others Reiki is a life-changing event opening doors to discover new dimensions of consciousness. The treatment can last between 25 minutes and 2 hours depending upon individual’s need.

Intention plays very important role in reiki session. Energy is directed to dis-eased organ using intention of removing negative energy and filling positive energy. This is due to the fact that "energy flows where ever our thoughts / intention goes". The same principal is used when making use of reiki for wish fulfillment. Reiki can not be used for manipulating others according to our will. It is used to bring harmony and wellness.

Most common reiki health benefits

Repair and increases the health of the immune system Elevation in thinking process Body detoxification Helps with drugs addiction or drug side effects Helps with chronic problems such as asthma or recurrent headaches Significant reduction of blood pressure General body and mind relaxation, which decreases stress and tension Increases vitality and overall sense of well being Better sleep cycles Helps heals injuries Improved memory and concentration Better brain synchronization

What is meditation ?

Meditation is a thoughtless state during which we realize that the real 'I' and 'mind' are two different things. 'I' uses mind for various purposes. It is out of ignorance only that we think that I and mind are one. Meditation starts with intense concentration on the object of meditation and if practiced consistently turns into samadhi. The Samadhi is the super conscious state of mind. In this state of self realization the seeker becomes Buddha.

Is reiki a meditation technique ? 8

Page 9: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

Yes, reiki is a meditation technique. Reiki is an art of going beyond mind. It is completely up to the seeker how and where he utilities this energy, for materialistic gains or spiritual ascension or both.Seeking enlightenment by meditating on light suits both formless (Nirakar) and formful (Sakar) concepts of meditation. All religion, culture and faiths in the world recognize the significance of light in meditation in one way or the other since where there is light, there can not be darkness (ignorance arising due to mind). The divine light is considered as a visual representative of Cosmic consciousness. Infact during worship we use candles, incense sticks and lightening lamps are nothing but symbolic indication towards dispelling ignorance.

What is group reiki ?

When a group of reiki practitioners give reiki to the same person simultaneously, the reiki session is termed as group reiki. Group reiki session is very powerful as the strength of healing energy increases exponentially. Due to this the dis-eased person recovers speedily.

History of reiki

Born on 15 august 1865 in the village of Taniai (now called Miyama cho), in the Yamagata county of the Gifu Prefecture in Japan, Dr. Mikao Usui was a physician, scholar and translator. His father was a Buddhist while his mother was Christian. Due to this, he was nurtured in both these religions / traditions and due to his interest he became expert in the knowledge of both traditions. He was the dean of a small college teaching Christianity in Kyoto and so, along with some of his colleague, used to teach lessons from Bible about spiritual ways of life to live in peace, harmony and compassion.

We all know that Jesus possesses miraculous healing powers, where, just by his touch, people were known to get healed. Bible mentioned such powers many times. One day one of his student asked to Mikao Usui that- does the information in bible are true and accurate ? does the Jesus really possesses healing powers and healed many people just by his touch or blessings. ? If yes, how Jesus made this happen ? Dr. Mikao Usui replied saying that in the bible Jesus says, " these miracles are nothing- I demonstrate these only because you have little faith in power of God and after me will come many who will do much more than I have done."

The students were now more curious and asked Dr. Mikao Usui to teach him how Jesus healed others. By this we will be able to heal others and to ourselves also. Dr. Mikao Usui said that he don't know that how did Jesus healed and he also admitted that Lord Buddha also possessed such healing abilities before Jesus. So he went to a Buddhist monastery to meet one of his friends to know how did Lord Buddha did these healing miracles. But to his disappointment his friend also did not knew how Lord Buddha did it, and he said that yes, Lord Buddha posses these healing powers but the knowledge about these things are now lost. He said that we are more concerned with spirit then physical body. Dr. Mikao Usui could not digest this as according to him ignoring physical flash in pursuit of self-realization seemed somewhat unreasonable.

He returned to the students and said as a teacher I must have known this, but now, as I am not qualified to be your teacher anymore as per Japanese tradition, so I am resigning from this college. Students asked him that his resignation will be of no help to them as they wanted to know about this healing method. This was the moment which made Dr. Mikao Usui to begin his search for this lost 9

Page 10: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

method of spiritual healing. Dr. Mikao Usui went to many places to rediscover this method. He first went to America, to Philadelphia but did not obtain anything of his interest. He then came to India, thinking that, it is the home of Buddhism and all sacred and esoteric knowledge. He came to know that he will have to study some holy scriptures which were written in Sanskrit. Dr. Mikao Usui then learned Sanskrit and also went to Tibet to study Lotus Sutras of Buddhism. His search for this continued over a period of 20 years.

As all the intellectual and theoretical avenues had been covered, so he decided to go up onto the holy mountain and fast, pray and meditate. He collected 21 stones so that he can keep track of days. As the days went by and he continued to fast and meditate, his awareness shifted. 20 days had been passed, but on 21st day, he went through a metaphysical experience that finally gave him what he long for. By mystical revelation he had gained the knowledge and spiritual power to apply and attune and heal others, to what he called Reiki. He received some esoteric symbols also, now called Reiki symbols for healing. This is how lost healing method was (re)-discovered.

After having gained this esoteric knowledge, a series of unexpected things occurred with him. While when he was stepping down the mount Kuriyama he stubbed his toe on a rock, and because his nail had come off, it was bleeding now. As soon as he put his hands on his hurt toe, the pain and the bleeding began to dissipate very rapidly. He realized that something was different about the energy in his hands. His hands were very hot. This was the first miracle of healing. After healing his toe, he continued down the mountain.

Furthermore, due to his fasting and strict penance, he has not eaten anything and was feeling hungry, and therefore entered a restaurant-kiosks. He ordered porridge which should be cold. The waiter told him that, as he has not eaten anything for many days, if he eats all this cold porridge, he may fall sick. But Dr. Mikao Usui decided to eat cold porridge. Amazing not only he eat that cold porridge but also drank cold tea. Everybody was surprised that how he is able to digest all that but he surely and easily digested all whatever he has consumed. This was second unexpected healing miracle.

Taking further, at this restaurant Dr. Mikao Usui happened to meet the owner's daughter who was suffering from toothache. When Dr. Mikao Usui touched her jaw and healed, there was no pain anymore. This was the third healing miracle.

Additional info:

• It is belived that Dr. Mikao Usui was a Christian. But no strong evidence has been found in support of this yet.

• It is believed that Dr. Mikao Usui was principal in Doshisha University in Kyoto. But again we do not have any evidence till today.

• According to Mrs. Takata, Dr. Mikao Usui neither fined any information specifically related to reiki in Sanskrit sutras nor did he find any symbols which are actually regular Japanese kanji terms. But he found a formula, a way, by which we can contact those divine powers who has the ability to bestow healing powers.

Degrees of reiki 10

Page 11: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

Different degrees in reiki involve giving different initiations to disciple. Degrees basically refer to the level of reiki attunement imparted on you. Reiki initiation is, first and foremost, a means calculated to induce the beginner to discover for himself certain facts that are not directly revealed to him but which, by the aid of symbolical rites, he will eventually perceive himself. It is not intended to enlighten the beginner but rather to lead him to become conscious of what has hitherto been hidden from him because his mental eye has not been capable of perceiving it.

Reiki I degree is the entry level. The disciple is attuned to reiki energy for the healing of themselves, others, plants and animals etc. The disciple is explained how energy works in every area of our life and how we can harness its mystical power. The class can be one or two days long depending upon teacher's method of teaching and other requirements. The disciple get familiarized with the basic principles of the reiki practice, history of reiki, what reiki may or may not do, 24 hands positions for treatment and code of ethics for reiki practitioner. We are introduced to aura and chakras, their properties and functioning etc. and making energy ball for healing are taught. Psychic defense is also covered. The disciple is taught how to make wish fulfillment box or chit.

At Reiki II degree, the disciple is attuned with reiki symbols which increase the strength of the healing. Some additional meditations, reiki elixir and spiritual lessons are also taught. How to heal anybody not physically present (distance healing) is taught. Generally, it has been a tradition to teach II degree reiki method after 21 days of learning I degree reiki. This is due to the assumption that we need to cleanse our basic etheric garbage in order to be more able to assimilate more powerful divine energy attuned in II degree reiki. After II degree attunement one feels more powerful at energy level. Feeling strong in ourselves gives us the ability to not only heal ourselves but also to those around us. Self responsibility changes how a life situation is viewed and we are no longer victims of unpleasant life situations. After II degree you can note significant changes in thought process. Compassion will start emerging as you practice with reiki symbols more and more. II degree gives the power to look deep in our self, working of mind, its projections and power of focused mind.

Reiki III degree is divided into two parts, namely III A degree and III B degree. In III A degree the student is given a master symbol which is supposed to be the ultimate in healing. This symbol symbolizes wholeness and journey of reiki. It empowers other symbols. The strength of the healing now gets extremely powerful. Additionally psychic surgery is taught often.

In III B degree, the disciple now becomes master reiki teacher as he is now authorized to attune others. The method to attune others is revealed to him by his guru's grace. Keep in mind that becoming reiki master teacher (having III B degree) is not for everyone. The reiki III B degree ask for serious devotion in healing path. It ask for an extensive apprenticeship, training with real dedication and compassion. It ask for serious devotion and service of mankind. The more conservative forms of reiki teachings does not allow anybody to become master easily and their are some norms set for that, yet, in more liberal terms their are some reiki practitioners who will attune you to III B degree without following some common norms. When we have become reiki teacher, the students in effect may act as mirrors to our own process, healing and awakening.

Reikitirth is also a Reiki Training Centre. At reikitirth the attunement process includes original method and enhanced techniques both. The students are also initiated into some other highly powerful spiritual practices. 11

Page 12: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

Why becoming a reiki master is highly expensive ?

Reiki was brought to west by Mrs. Takata. Japan and western countries have different cultures and ethos etc. Mrs. Takata realized that the concept of "Respect" mind not be well understood by westerns and it will be difficult for her to make them realize the value of reiki. It was therefore that she decided to charge large sum of money for imparting reiki mastership attunement from others. She knew that money is something that western people understand and this will help them have respect and gratitude for reiki. Since then it has been a tradition to charge large sum of money for reiki mastership across the world.

Additional info:

• Due to very flexible nature of reiki teaching, you may find wide differences in teaching methods of reiki masters across the world. For example :

• Many reiki masters (especially professionals), does not follow this system of three degrees in reiki, instead they will combine 1st and 2nd degree into one and reiki mastership as the other.

• There will be some slight differences in attunement process among different reiki master teachers. But the student needs not to worry as all of them will work equally. It is said that: "when the student is ready, teacher appears." So the disciple just has to think about his devotion and divinity in him.

• Many reiki masters will teach how to use crystals along with reiki in the 1st degree itself while other may cover it in 2nd or 3rd degree. These differences are also the result of different religious and cultural bias. For example in china use of singing bowls with reiki is common. Some reiki teachers also include music therapy, color therapy, pranayama, color breathing, hypnosis, NLP or aroma therapy also.

• Many reiki masters teach symbols which are used in healing but are not part of traditional reiki healing method. For example antahkarana and flower of life symbols etc.

Precepts of reiki

After returning from sacred mount Kurama-yama, Dr. Mikao Usui went to beggars colony to help them heal their diseases and improve their life styles. He wanted them to make productive citizens instead of being a parasite. Dr. Mikao Usui lived many years in beggar's colony. He taught reiki to many beggars and some of them returned to their village to begin spending a productive and purposeful life. They started becoming prosperous but as time passed, they could not give proper time to healing and as a result of this their life situations once again started getting worse. Some of them decided to become beggars once again and came back to beggars colony. While teaching other beggars, Dr. Mikao Usui recognized some of them and was disappointed by their come back.

During a meditation Dr. Usui discovered the precepts of reiki whose purpose was to bring a balance in life. Their purpose is to make people understand that consciously deciding to improve oneself and taking responsibility for healing is an important aspect of reiki healing method. It was therefore out of their experience with beggars and some others he laid down some precepts referred to as The Gokai in Japan, which the reiki practitioners are supposed to follow in daily life. The reiki energy along with these precepts is what we call as Usui system of reiki. 12

Page 13: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

The reiki precepts as presented by Mrs. Takata and used in west mainly :-

Just For Today, I Will Not Worry.Just For Today, I Will Not be Angry.Just For Today, I Will Earn My Living Honestly.Just For Today, I Will Honor My Parents, Elders, and Teachers.Just For Today, I Will Show Gratitude For Everything.

The reiki precepts which are believed to be given by Dr. Mikao Usui originally :-

The secret art of inviting happinessThe miraculous medicine of all diseasesJust for today, do not angerDo not worry and be filled with gratitudeDevote yourself to your work and be kind to peopleEvery morning and evening join your hands in prayer,Pray these words to your heartand chant these words with your mouth

Additional info:-

• Their have been many controversies about the precepts as their origin and other details were kept hidden. Reiki being extremely compatible with every Religion and spiritual practice got modified according as needed. It seems that you should “Honour your parents, teachers and elders” have been added later, once reiki was being taught in the West.

• It has been claimed that the precepts originate in a book, published in Usui’s time, and it has been claimed that they are based on the edicts of Mutsuhito, the Meiji Emperor. Certainly it seems that many Tendai and Zen Buddhist teachers were passing on similar principles in Usui Sensei’s time.

• It is belived that the above precepts are written on linen and located at Dr. Usui's grave site. The location of this grave site is still not publically disclosed.

• The Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (Society of the Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method) claims to have been created by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1922. The society still exists today, and has its president. It is closed to foreigners and members are asked not to discuss the details of the society with non-members.

Reiki symbols

The reiki has its origin at Japan and therefore encompasses Japanese ethos and culture. When the reiki was brought to west by Ms. Takata she imbued sacredness in these symbols because Dr. Hayashi has taught her in that way. These symbols are not secret or occult but are expression of powerful divinity. It is important to know that Dr. Usui did not begin attuning others to reiki with symbols. Few things were added to reiki as a result of his experience gained in meditation and practical life. For example reiki's five principals were added because of what happened in beggar's colony. 13

Page 14: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

These symbols were experienced by him in his meditative states and he knew that the vibration of these symbols matches with some important / healing vibrations. These symbols were written in calligraphy or kanji at his times and are now lost in Japanese language. Dr. Mikao Usui was a sagacious scholar having profound understanding of attunements, healing, spirituality and subtle powers. He gave these things to ordinary people in the form of reiki so that others do not have to spent his whole life decoding and understanding spiritual scriptures. He created a group / society of people who were interested in healing their lives with reiki. Whenever a society or group is formed these things like some secrets shared among that group only arises. Whoever wants to learn reiki was welcome. Just give something in exchange and the method and secrets were revealed to him.

In many spiritual systems it has been very common that the master gives a secret mantra (beej mantra) to his disciple. The disciple may think that the mantra revealed to him is very common and he has encountered it many times like in books, then what was the reason of giving this mantra so secretly in a sacred ceremony. But we all know the miracles of master's grace and blessings. The mantra and symbols given by masters carry divine energy in them and expedite our progress. Without attuning reiki symbols in you by a reiki master, you can not carry their energy in your aura.

Understand that there is nothing secret in reiki. It is a method of teaching healing energies in an easy to learn and practice form. The symbols 'hon sha ze sho nen' and 'dai ko myo' were written in kanji language. The reiki symbols are the vibrations one will experience when one is in state of reiki Samadhi. We need to get these symbol attuned from a reiki master. As time passed, the original form of these symbols started getting lost. For example when madam Takata made reiki masters, there would have been different types of 'hon sha ze sho nen' and 'dai ko myo'. It was to preserve their original form that they were drawn on paper so that nobody can further introduce any modifications in how they are drawn.

The 'Choku rei' is the power symbol. It increases the strength of healing energy. It is a general purpose symbol which is almost always used whenever we send reiki.

The 'Sei he ki' symbol is used to overcome the obstacles in path of reiki energy. It brings back the balance where imbalances exist whether it be in body or life situations. It removes bad habits about us we may not be aware. It brings physical body, energy body and mental body into alignment. Use this when you want to clear road traffic or make your way whenever you are struck somewhere in life. Use it for house protection. 14

Page 15: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

Use 'Hon sha ze sho nen' to establish connection between you and whoever you want to send reiki, for example people, object, situation or intention. This symbol therefore acts as a bridge. This symbol makes the reiki flow in heart and aagya chakra thereby overcome time and distance.

The 'Dai ko myo' symbol is attuned in master degree of reiki. This symbol is embossed on a jar made near the foot of Lord Buddha in a temple at Nara, Japan. A jar symbolizes completeness and so does this symbol. We are complete at every level of existance. It is the mind which makes us feel that we lack something and are incomplete and therefore we look for things outside not inside. This symbol symbolizes journey of reiki. It represents path of bodhisattva and heals at soul level. It encompasses highly powerful divine energies in its aura which are used during 'shaktipat' (attunements). This symbol can be considered as a representative of holy spirits (siddhas) which when invoked become healing Buddha. It energies other reiki symbols. Draw it over the heart for self healing. It increases healing power many times. It energies hara chakra and thymus gland.

Reiki lineage

After Dr. Mikao usui give his five principles of reiki, he traveled through out Japan lecturing and teaching reiki. On his travels he acquired 18 disciples, men who traveled and studies with him. This begins the tradition of apprenticeship in reiki.

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi was the first reiki master initiated and trained by Dr. Mikao usui himself. He was a deeply dedicated reiki master and retired marine officer. Dr. Hayashi founded a clinic in Kyoto and Tokyo, which was visited by Hawayo Takata from Hawaii in order to remedy her tumor in 1935. She was successfully healed and thereafter become the reiki channel herself. In 1937, Dr. Hayashi visited her for several months and gave her further training. Before his departure in Febuary of 1938, he initiated her to be the first reiki master (Master of the Dr. Usui Reiki System of Healing), at that time in USA. Before the outbreak of the war between Japan and USA, Dr. Hayashi bestwed her the title of reiki master and his authorized successor.

Reiki, in west was introduced by Hawayo Takata. She initiated and trained 21 reiki masters, among them Phyllis Lei Furumoto, her granddaughter whom she had already initiated into reiki during childhood. Hawayo Takata in December 1980 declared her granddaughter Phyllis Lei Furumoto, to be her successor and authorized reiki master of the Dr. Usui Reiki System of Healing. Many masters have been initiated by her and other reiki masters in meantime so that there are now currently several thousands who initiate and teach reiki through out the entire world. Reiki and alternative therapies are now common. 15

Code of ethics for reiki practitioner

All Reiki healers must follow the code of ethics for reiki healer that has been laid out for them. The reiki ethical code lays out what the relationship between the practitioner and the client. It is a code of conduct that the practitioner should follow with his patient at all times. Violating it would amount to breech of trust between the healer and the patient. Given below is a brief description ofthe ethical code for reiki healer:

Before drawing the energy on a person, reiki master should prepare the patient mentally for it. If he/she does not want to be in contact with reiki, he/she may not respond to reiki.

Practitioner should inform the client that reiki is not replacement for medical care. He should explain that it is important for the over all well-being of the person.

Client sessions should be held in a secure and comfortable place.

Before the healer begins a reiki session, he should tell the patient what he may experience during the session. He should discuss with the dis-eased person what is going to happen during and after the session.

Personal details of the client should not be revealed, unless the client himself has given you permission to do so. The Reiki healer should not disclose or confirm the fact that a particular person is a client, unless he has prior permission and the consent of the client to do so.

The healer should teach the dis-eased person value of reiki and explain to them that the sessions do not guarantee complete healing or complete recuperation.

At all times treat the client with great respect and honor.

A healer must respect the opinion, views and methods followed by other Reiki practitioners. It is entirely up to the healer concerned to decide whether he wants to learn from other healers or wants to follow their methods. But there should be no fault with the way he practices Reiki.

Practice must be conducted with confidentiality and great discretion. Practitioner-client confidentiality must be maintained at all costs. Anything that is discussed between the two should not be disclosed.

The healer should find out whether the client is undergoing any medical treatment. If the practitioner thinks that a client requires professional medical attention then he should suggest to the client that he gets it. Reiki is a supplement to medical treatment and therefore the practitioner should be aware of any medical history of the client.

The healer should not tell the client to disrobe unless he is also a legally licensed massage therapist in the country in which he practices. He should never touch the genital area or breasts. To treat these areas he should only practice hands-off techniques. 16

A healer should work on his own healing so as to embody and express the essence of reiki in everything they do.

Always give right information about your level of attunements in reiki.

Treatment guidelines

The treatment guidelines given here are most commonly followed protocol. With enough practice you yourself will be able to develop your own way of working with reiki and patients.


• Before starting the reiki session, always ask your patient to close his eyes and be thankful and welcoming towards divine love and healing energies that he is going to recieve. You can also ask them to focus on some pleasant feelings, white light coming to them or some symbol they already use in their meditation practice if any.

• Irrespective of the dis-ease or problem, always give reiki to manipura chakra, because this is the power center from where the absorption and regulation of prana occurs and this chakra always get affected whenever there is any dis-ease or problem.

• Always ask your patient to increase his water intake as water help in circulating energy, keeps cells in healthy conditions and help in removing negative energy through urine.

• Before giving reiki treatment counsel the patient with aim of shifting his focus from problem to solution. Motivate him to open up with you and tell you whatever issue he is holding onto. Show him specific ways that will help him in bringing positive changes in his life. Always build a rapport with him.

• If the time and conditions permit, give reiki to ear because there are many nerve that end here and are connected to brain and other organs. Every organ has a nerve supply which can either speed up or slow down the functions of that particular organ and therefore giving reiki to ear will not only heal many organs simultaneously but also will remove negative energy / thoughts from brain.

• Ask the dis-eased person to increase spinach (palak) and beetroot (chukandar) intake for atleast 15 days. This will increase the hemoglobin level, which will greatly help in better absorption and retention of prana thereby expediting healing process and permanent results.

• Never play with the trust your patient has on you. Always honor his faith. Always follow code of ethics for reiki practitioner.

• If you are frequently dealing with patients, it is good idea to take rock salt water bath in order to release any negative thought forms you may have taken subconsciously.

• It is natural that the dis-eased person will also show some psychological things like lack or decrease in confidence and lack of enthusiasm, up to some extent. These things will get healed automatically when you heal the dis-ease.

• Ask the dis-eased person to wear loose and comfortable clothes for reiki session and the healer should also wear comfortable clothes.

• Treat until you feel the rise and fall of energy, or if you do not experience energy physically, just treat for 5 minutes at dis-eased part or area.

• Ask your patient to write the things that are not working in their life the way they want. Include all areas as it would help in figuring out where exactly the problem lies more easily. 17

Page 18: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

• Make sure that during treatment patient does not cross either his leg or hands. This indicates unwillingness to heal at subconscious level.

• Place your hands at about 3-4 inches above the dis-eased area. Patient must not feel the weight of your palm.

• Reiki balances and heals surgically removed organs for example 'phantom limb'. Tell the patient not to worry about it if he feels any sensations or something in that area.

• Create a healing environment as it would facilitate the psychological healing. It is very important to relax your patient both mentally and physically. Use some easy exercise to relax physically and use hypnosis or affirmations to relax mentally.

• At the beginning and end of healing session always ground both yourself and the dis-eased person. End the treatment by sealing the dis-eased person's energy field by drawing the power symbol on his solar plexus and have an intension "I seal (his name) energy field with love". "He is always divinely protected and guided".

• During reiki session try to embed exact affirmations into his subconscious mind which are useful for him.


• Remember that you are not medical doctor, therefore never make guesses about anything medically and do not take any chance. Do not ask patient to stop taking medicines. Advice him to relax mentally and physically. Advice him what food or things will naturally boost his energy (stamina).

• Never attach or relate yourself with patient in any way. You will end up catching negative energy from dis-eased person.

• Some healer feel drained after giving reiki. Reason for this is wrong intension. You are supposed to give reiki coming from universe and not your own prana. Also after the session is over detach yourself from patient (close reiki channel between you and patient) by using raku symbol and the method your reiki teacher has taught you.

• Do not educate your patient about dis-ease. It becomes seed of new negative psychic impressions.

• When using crystals, follow your intuition. Also one crystal may be best for someone but may not work for other. The Amethyst and rose quartz are the crystal that works almost with everybody. Do not use crystals if dis-eased person feels uncomfortable.

• If you use aroma essence or soothing music, always ask first if the patient is allergic to some smell and whether he is comfortable with the music or not.

Guidelines for disease

For guidelines as per the dis-ease follow this link as we keep updating it frequently:-

Invoking reiki: the heartfelt prayer

At the beginning of reiki session we invoke reiki; the mysterious divine healing energy. This invocation must be the most intense, emotionally charged and powerful enough such that it captures 18

Page 19: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

whole of your attention and you get focused on the white light and sahasrara chakra. Remember the universal law; what we really feel from heart, the Universe is bound to listen to that.

Psychic protection

Whenever beginning reiki session always create a protective shield around you and also around patient if you are treating him. Visualize a white light coming from Universe and entering into your sahasrara chakra filling every cell of your body. Now visualize that you are covered by an energy sphere. Have an intension that “I am divinely protected and guided”.

Reiki hand positions

It has been observed that different reiki masters adopt different steps for healing and all of them have proved effective. However there are certain points in our body for optimal healing. They are actually related to major and minor chakras of the etheric body, and by giving reiki treatment on those points the whole body gets cured. These points can be easily memorized in a short period. It is not strictly necessary to follow the exact sequences or only heal these points, but they may be more beneficial. We even advise the practitioners to follow their inner feeling and heal according to their intuition and experience. As a general rule emphasis should be more on the area where the patient feels pain. Remember, reiki life force energy is intelligent and it knows where it has to go.

Each point should be treated for a minimum of 3 to 5 minutes, but in case of acute problems, one can spend 10 to 15 minutes. In case of chronic disease, treatment should not be beyond 20-30 minutes to begin with, but the period can be increased later. The chronic disease indicates some deeply held issue which if resolved suddenly may produce unpleasant situations.

The twenty four points are, Eyes, Temples, Ears, Forehead, Back head, Both hands at back head, Jaw, Throat, Heart, Solar plexus, Liver, Lungs, Pancreas and spleen, Hara chakra, Mooladhara chakra, Both Knees, Left ankle and feet sole, Right ankle and feet sole, Shoulders, Thyroid gland, Heart chakra, Solar plexus from back, Kidneys and manipura chakra from back.

Finding energy imbalance and aura scanning, cleansing

There are many techniques for finding energy imbalances in the patient’s etheric system. Different reiki teachers use different techniques to dig out the root cause of the problem but as a general technique the point where we feel heaviness or rise and fall of energy is the place where we need to send reiki. For exact details follow, discuss and practice exactly what your reiki teacher tells you. The aura scanning and cleansing is again a subjective matter and you should follow what your reiki masters teaches you. 19

Page 20: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

Giving reiki treatment; body response and side effects

When we give reiki treatment to the patient the body response varies from person to person. Some tends to heal very quickly while some shows increased resistance. The patient may feel rise and fall of body temperatures, body being heated or as if a current is flowing through his body. He may find that his diet and thrust for water has considerably increased. As a side effect some patient tends to withdraw themselves from people around them just because they are feeling inner peace. The level of stress and short temperedness decreases significantly. Sometimes an emotional outburst is also experienced. Some people have reported that they feel as if they are flying; physical body has no weight. Whatever happens during reiki treatment should be taken positively. Remember reiki does not harm you in any way; it is your ignorance that you do not understand the healing phenomenon.

Treating plants and animals

The plants and animals can also be benefited through reiki. Keep a piece of clear quartz crystal in the flower pot or bury in the vicinity of the root of the plant. Send reiki to this crystal with intension that it will keep sending reiki to the plant. Also send reiki to the plant with intension that it is nurtured with the love from mother Earth, the Sun and reiki. Visualize the plant growing to its fullest growth.

Similarly when you want to give reiki to animals, simply give some water to the animal (it is usually your pet animal), calm down and relax. Start sending reiki and your love to the pet. Visualize as if the white light reiki and your love are flowing from your heart chakra to the heart chakra of the pet animal. Have an intension that “I loving take care of you”. You may want to use rose quartz for your dear pet animal.

Power Ball

In reiki a power ball refers to a concentrated energy reservoir which we blow at the dis-eased area to work instantly and very effectively. We first need to create it and then use. Get into meditative state, begin reiki session. Now hold your palms facing each other about 9 to 12 inches apart and at the level of your heart. Now begin focusing towards the center of this palm arrangement such that you feel a heavy rush of energy. Visualize that reiki is getting collected more and more in this reservoir and use the highest of your emotions and imagination in doing so. Now move back forth slightly your palm feeling the energy pool. Notice the electromagnetic resistance between your palms when you bring your palms closer. This energy reservoir is your reiki power ball.

Now take a deep breath, bring this power ball closer and in alignment to the dis-eased area and blow with full power this ball visualizing as if this whole ball get embedded into the dis-eased area. Have intension that this area is healed right now right at this moment. You can do the same for others dis-eased area also. But do not create power ball many times same day or very-very frequently.

Dowsing 20

Page 21: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

The dowsing is a occult method believed to be used for locating water, gemstones, oil repository and buried metals or ores etc. in ancient times. A Y- or L-shaped twig or rod (made of either wooden or metal), called a dowsing rod is sometimes used during dowsing, although some dowsers use other equipment or no equipment at all. In reiki a metallic or crystal pendulum is used mainly for diagnosis purpose or getting divine guidance.

The person using dowser first builds rapport with the dowser by a series of questions and practice. As practice is perfected the dowser comes in resonance with the subconscious mind of the person who dowses. Quiet mind is prerequisite for effective dowsing. The following points should be known to the dowsing practitioner:

• The questions must be clear cut and short.• You must first build a good rapport with the dowser and then proceed.• To use dowsing you should understand the working of manomaya kosha (mind sheath).• Do not rely heavily on dowsing for any thing.• If you use a crystal pendulum as equipment for dowsing then before using it always charge it

through reiki.

Many reiki practitioners use dowser as a diagnosis tool in their reiki treatment. The use of dowser for such purpose is highly subjective and it should be left at the practitioner’s discretion.

Grounding meditation for balance

In your reiki journey balance is very important. Try to practice this meditation often. Begin your reiki session, invoke reiki, invoke ascended masters etc. Invoke mother earth. Visualize that as if you are sitting on the Earth. Now visualize that a white light ray; reiki is entering from sahasrara chakra and every cell of your body is bathing in it. Now request the reiki to go from your root chakra to the core of the mother earth. Visualize that a white light reiki is now going from your root chakra to the center of the mother earth and the center starts illuminating heavily. You are now strongly connected to the center of the mother earth. Request the mother Earth to draw all the unbalanced energy from your aura – chakra system. Visualize that grey garbage the etheric pollution is getting drained right now. Request he mother earth to send her loving energy in order to nourish you.

Introduction to aura and chakra 31

Page 32: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

The Human Aura

Every object in the universe, whether natural or artificial, whether animate or inanimate, whether small or big emits radiations. The radiations are energy forms and invisible. The Indians know this fact and therefore incorporated this theory in their traditions. Women in India draw rangoli in front of door entrance which help eliminate negative radiations from outside. Our body produces static electricity and by touching grounded objects we discharge it naturally. This electricity is actually a part of our bio-energy.

Human body is electric, magnetic and electromagnetic

Mr. Robert Charman in his paper on electrical properties of cells and tissues detailed the cell as an electric system. The main difference between electricity in biological systems and electricity in electronic devices is that cells and tissues are charged atoms or ions, while electronic devices are based on electrons. Mr. Von Braun at the institute of Neotic Sciences said that: “We know that the human eye functions a bit like television camera as it sends electrical pulses to the brain. Our ear is a sort of microphone which converts the incoming sound into equivalent electrical signal which is routed to the brain." The body produces many electrical signals, which can be measured with the help of ECG, EEG and EMG etc. Our brain contains neurons which uses electrical pulses. Cell voltage is influenced by external electromagnetic fields and has effect based on its polarity and strength. The picture on the left is a real life aura photograph.

The aura around us is partly composed from EM (electromagnetic) radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared (IR) to UV light. The low frequency microwave and infrared part of the spectrum (body heat) seems to be related to the low levels of the functioning of our body (DNA structure, metabolism, circulation etc.) whereas high frequency (UV part) is more related to our conscious activity such as thinking, creativity, intentions, sense of humor and emotions.

Human aura can be better understood through points below:

• Left Side (Female-Yin) : The color on the left side is generally the vibration coming into our being. It is what we feel inside, but might not have expressed.

• Right Side (Male-Yang) : The color on the right side is generally the energy being expressed, the qualities most likely seen or felt by others around us.

• Above Head (Beliefs - Thoughts) : The color over the head is what we are experiencing now. It shows our current state of mind and what we think and believe.

• Center (Overall Base Aura Color) : Our most dominant aura color is seen in the center of our body. This color helps determine our personality trait and does not changes as fast as the colors in the outer aura.

How does aura affects our personality and relationships ?

Different thoughts and emotions produce different colors in aura and affect different auric layers. For example anger is manifested as red color in aura. When the anger subsides so does the red in aura. However, if the person gets angry over and over again, the red stays longer and then there comes a point where the aura is infused with dull red permanently. The transition from a man who was occasionally angry to an angry man has happened. If we do not remove this red from aura, we are very likely to suffer any physical disease.

Cleaning your aura 32

Page 33: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

Sea salt is the most traditional purifying agent in psychic work and healing. It dispels any sort of dis-ease and negativity, and is a physical and psychic disinfectant. The best way is to do meditation or reiki.

The Chakras

The chakras are like energy transformers in etheric body. The have several emotional, spiritual, physical etc aspects attributed to them.

There is a deep interrelationship between mind, body and spirit. Change in one chakra may affect another chakra, even when these secondary results are not immediately apparent. There are also particular polarities between certain chakras which set up dynamic relationships. For example the aagya chakra relate to root chakra, swadhisthana chakra with throat chakra. Development of one chakra affects the whole chakra energy system. The energies of upper chakras and lower chakras meet at the heart chakra.

The seven chakras

The root chakra

The name mooladhara is amalgamation of two words mool, meaning root/main, adhara, meaning support/base. This chakra is so vital that due to its malfunctioning, most of the other major and minor chakras will stop functioning leading to a total collapse of the physical body. It binds the gross body with its mother's love and affection. The new born baby traces the body heat of the mother and feels solace under it. The more he gets love and affection from mother, more the child will be attached to earth and his development will become easier. Similarly, the more the person is grounded better he is able to balance both physical as well as spiritual world. If ungrounded, he will be lost in a mixture of various thoughts and processes which will not help him much in his endeavour for the spiritual growth. It is the root chakra which itself embodies the power of balancing and earthing the energy of the existence.

All the chakras make their appearance at foetal life but it is the Mooladhara chakra that starts developing in the prenatal stage. In the third trimester, of pregnancy, it develops. It is located at two fingers below testis & two fingers above anus / Near the opening of uterus. Beej mantra is Lam.

Healers Perspective

Mental / Emotional / Psychological aspects:

On a psychical level, it controls the will of survival, the state of inner safety, the desire for material goods, and the choice of profession. It deals with the issues of survival instinct. It helps you fulfill basic needs i.e. food, clothes and shelter. The more open the chakra and more prana radiating, the more you are prosperous. The quality of life you live is directly proportional to this chakra. When it is functioning properly, we feel secure and comfortable in the physical world. Pleasure will emerge spontaneously and we do not feel compelled to justify our existence. We will recognize that we are responsible for our own being and 33

Page 34: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

would not feel the need to lean on others for support.

When the prana through this chakra is blocked or it have less prana, one will feel concurrent fear of death, which will emerge as an internal struggle for personal survival. Its malfunctioning will cause person to avoid social gatherings, taking responsibility for something, fear of being wrong, social anxiety and agoraphobia. When it is out of balance, we may suffer from low self-esteem, feel out of touch with our body and our sexuality, or be prone to depression and addictive behavior. When your Root Chakra is balanced, we feel confident and healthy, and happy with our body and our sexuality.

It reflects a person's connection with their mother, and with mother Earth. How the person feels about being on the earth and connects with his physical body. How he realizes that he is part of a large ecosystem and nature. As mother takes loving care of his child, similarly, root chakra provides nourishment to flash body and gives prana to physical body. When you become your own “good mother,” you are able to manage the curve balls life throws you and take responsibility for your circumstances. “Mothering and nourishing yourself means understanding what you need and letting yourself have it, to the best of your ability.”

A deep sense and strong sense of stability and security can enable us to explore our facets, take risks and uncover our potential. The mooladhara chakra is conduit for our experience of security. The security here refers to secure relationships, work place, job, career, financial aspects, health etc. Also notice that we can be very secure in one area of life for example in career and job while very insecure in other area such as relationship with spouse etc. Imbalances in this chakra may result in two extremes of insecurity and rigidity, an UNWILLINGNESS TO CHANGE.

Mentally, this chakra is responsible for maintaining balance, a balance between right brain hemisphere and left brain hemisphere, a balance between male and female aspects of inner body, a balance between physical and spiritual world etc. One of its main aspects is innocence which gives us dignity, balance, and a tremendous sense of direction and purpose in life. Simplicity, joy, purity, integrity and balance are some qualities manifested through this Chakra.

Emotions associated with this chakra include frustration, rage, and passion. Constipation is not only physical, but emotional too. Repressed anger is also related to mooladhara chakra. Opening it can have effects of releasing long-held emotions. A symptom of suppression of this chakra is the inability of a person to express one’s emotions appropriately.

Physical aspects:

This chakra is related to the functioning of the legs, feet, bones and large intestines. Adrenal gland is associated with it which responsible for the fight and flight response when survival is under threat. It is related to obesity, hemorrhoids, addictions, constipation, sciatica, lower back pain, varicose veins, rectal tumors, depression, immune related disorders, insomnia, spinal column, kidneys, lymph system, skeleton, teeth, nose, arterial blood, adipose tissue, osteoporosis, boils and pimples, nerve disorders etc.

Symptoms of Imbalanced Mooladhara chakra:

If they are too yin they may be ungrounded. If they are too yang there might be too much attachment to material things, too much self-indulgence and a preoccupation with satisfaction of their own needs. Some signs that the Base Chakra is out of balance are:* Restlessness 34

Page 35: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

* Lack of energy and enthusiasm* Loss of interest in the real world or practical survival * Volatile emotions * Obsession with one thing * Selfishness * Experiences the world at the mercy of outside forces that work against it * Seldom has awareness or sense of responsibility for its circumstances * Is always in a helpless state, suicidal feelings, disoriented * Totally reliant on partner, companion, family, organization, etc. * Is disconnected from their inner core of feelings * Mind is stuck in a frozen state of fear, terror or desperation * Experiences no sense of empowerment, poverty, listlessness, clumsiness.

Additional info: The affirmations given below are highly beneficial in boosting mooladhara chakra. They create positive neural network in brain which makes you highly productive in life, if used sincerely and consistently:-

• I am confidently moving in the direction of my dreams.• I have an abundance of everything to live my life to the fullest and to fulfill my dreams

and desires.• I am an action driven and result oriented person.• I set goals and I reach them. I know what I want out of my life.• I am an excellent decision maker.• I am an excellent learner. I assimilate new ideas very quickly and easily.

Spiritual Perspective

The God Brahma and Goddess Dakini are the deities of this chakra. This center of force symbolizes the objective consciousness, the awareness in the physical, terrestrial universe. It contains the first of the psychic knot which firmly bind spirit and matter, the Brahma Granthi. It is strongly linked to the Crown Chakra and between them, they govern the body's hormone system. Without a balanced Root Chakra, the crown chakra may get affected.

The elephant Airavata represents the physicality of matter. The collar that he wears represents our false bondage to materialistic things. His whiteness symbolizes divinity within matter. His seven trunks represent seven qualities of human nature. . The yellow square Privithi represents earth. The downward-pointing triangle shows that divine power comes from a higher level to a lower level. The eight arrows represent the many directions life may take. The lingam wrapped with 3 1/2 coils of the serpent represents the Kundalini shakti. A crescent moon symbolizes the divine source of life.

The swadhisthana chakra

Swadhisthana is the amalgamation of the two words swa and adhisthan meaning under ones own control. The whole of chakra forms an aura of dazzling vermilion colour. This colour is a combination of red and purple. It is the chakra of creativity, pure attention and pure knowledge. It is connects us to the inner source of inspiration, and enables us to experience the beauty around us. The pure knowledge given by this chakra is not mental, but it is direct perception of the reality, that can be felt in our palms and indicates our 35

Page 36: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

subtle blockages. Also this is the center of pure, steady attention and power of concentration. It is located at Coccyx / Coccyx. Beej mantra is Vam.

Healers Perspective

Mental / Emotional / Psychological aspects:

It is attributed to element water, which is fluid and mobile. This water reflects the shadow of a crescent moon. This represents the purity of love and affection. The calmer the water, the better is relationship between two persons. When open this chakra permits deep intimacy and connection. When blocked, feelings and sexuality remain disconnected. Impotence and frigidity usually, are found to have psychological components. This chakra stands for the pleasure principle and that is most often routed through food and sex. Imbalances have been observed often in this chakra due to either over indulgence or complete abstinence.

It is a doorway to unconscious mind which stores all memories, both pleasant and unpleasant. The unconscious mind is often symbolized by the light of the moon, which is illuminated only by reflected light. This centre is represented on the kabalistic tree of life by the sphere of the moon. Opening this chakra can release a torrent of powerful images into dream life. Greater access to the personal unconscious brings a sharpened intuition which has wisdom of its own. Often, the memory of sexual violation is repressed, but its destructive effects manifest in behaviour which is unconsciously driven. Sexual violation destroys this center. It is related to mooladhara chakra in that, swadhisthana is where the different samskaras (karmas), lie dormant, and mooladhara is where these samskaras find expression.

It symbolizes ideas, impulses, and desires which stimulate the mind. It is related to imagination, which is powerful force in human creativity at all levels, spiritual, artistic and personal. If it is stuck wide open, we tend to allow our emotions and sexual impulses to rule us and our creative drive might over shadow everything else in our life. It offers us the opportunity to lessen our "control issues" and find a balance in our lives, teaching us to recognize that acceptance and rejection are not the only options in our life and relationships. The process of making changes in our life stream through our personal choices is a product of this chakra energy. We will lack negotiation skills if this chakra is malfunctioning while, if healthy, it enhances our problem-solving capacity.

The Spirit, which resides in our heart, is the real reservoir of creativity, and artists and people who think excessively or are obsessed with fame or success will usually suffer a weak Swadhisthan Chakra and tend to be off-balance personalities. Their ambition is to be superior to others or to be acclaimed by them for their talents comes from their ego. Although, we can see that even where the artistic endeavor starts out with heart, there is a tendency for the artist to produce later works which are lifeless or lacking inspiration. As the artist becomes more successful, he works harder to maintain or grow this success which requires exhaustive use of this chakra especially prana (male side / pingala channel) get drained at a very fast rate and resulting in inflated ego of him. In addition, the connection with the ego can take the attention away from the Spirit. As the artist starts to believe that he is the creator of all his works (thus eliminating divine inspiration) the process is accelerated and the ego expands to such an extent that the spirit of the work has been removed completely.

The emotion anger is regulated by this chakra. When the flow of energy through this chakra is restricted because of fear or physical and energetic contraction, anger will emerge. when this it is functioning healthfully pleasure will emerge as the natural response to human interaction and appropriate activity. By examining the emotional 36

Page 37: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

issues which block our happiness, and deciding to accept pleasure in our lives, we can let go of our pain and suffering. It is also responsible for the creation or withdrawal of enthusiasm in routine life. Emotional feelings are affected by this chakra. Our capacity to control our desires is the measure of our capacity to keep this chakra balanced.

In swadhisthana chakra the sense of taste is the sensory avenue or input. In tasting we use the hands, which are the motor output of swadhisthana, to take food to the mouth, and to drink. There is a very interesting relationship between the sensation of taste, the sexual fluids of the body and the awakening of swadhisthana. There is no sense of taste unless the water element is present. This is true. The taste buds will not function without the water element being present. If your mouth is dried up, and I blindfold you and plug your nostrils, you can't tell whether you are eating apple or onion.

Physical aspects:

Physically, this chakra is related to the reproductive system, bladder, urinary tract, womb, menstrual cycle in women and to the testes prostates plexus in men, low back pain, sciatica, pelvic pain, libido, liver functioning, metabolism, digestion, detoxification, immunity and balancing of blood sugar etc.

One of the most important functions of this center is to generate the energy that fuels our thinking by breaking down fat particles in the abdomen to replace the brain cells. Excessive thinking and planning overworks this process and exhausts the centre. The Swadhisthan also looks after the liver (along with the Nabhi Centre). If the Chakra is having to cope with excessive thinking, then the other organs it is supposed to look after are neglected. The liver is particularly susceptible to this neglect. The liver has a particular importance in that it is the seat of our Attention (chitta). Attention is pure concentration minus thought/mental activity. For example when we look at a flower we put our pure attention on it (i.e., we observe it). However we will also think about it ("that’s pretty," "I wonder what’s it called," etc.). Attention has no such associated thoughts — it is pure concentration/observation/witnessing. A balanced liver sustains and nourishes our Attention and filters it by scanning out any impurities and external clutter. From this purified attention comes the peace and stillness that we obtain in our meditation. The liver is susceptible to overheating (through alcohol or other stimulants), effecting our Attention, which ultimately weakens our meditation and so on.

We must end involuntary and compulsive thinking. Pay particular attention to any repetitive thought patterns i.e. carefully and attentively observe/watch the thinker, listen to the voice in your head without judgment, just listen. When we do this a different consciousness is activated and the thought then loses its power over us and subsides, because we are no longer energizing the mind through identification with it.

Symptoms of Imbalanced Swadhisthana chakra:

Too much yang will present as sexuality dominating the person's life, sexual frustration and excessive fantasizing. There may be excessive tightness in the abdominal area leading to low back problems, Puritanism, sexual repression, emotional suffering and instability, lack of trust.

Spiritual Perspective

The God Vishnu and Goddess Rakini are the deities of this chakra. The lotus within the lotus is called the Kunda flower. The six vermillion colored petals represent the impulses, ideas and powers of the imagination, which stimulate the mind. Imagination and fantasies sometimes create desires without discrimination. Each petal bears a sanskrit letter. The mythical Makara, half alligator, half fish, represents the subconscious powers of the mind. 37

Page 38: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

The creature lies just beneath the surface representing that we are normally unaware of our own hidden motives and depths.

The manipura chakra

The name Manipura is amalgamation of two words, mani means jewel, pura means place, i.e. manipura is a place filled with jewels and treasure. Tibetan Buddhist chant "Hum Mani Padme Hum" aptly defines the meaning of the chakra as 'jeweled lotus(Mani Padme). This chakra functions as an auric energy generator. Normally, it radiates blue-violet light, but in spiritually awakened people it radiates golden light. This chakra has Rajo guna and has the abundance of intelligence, love, and knowledge.This is located at behind navel / behind navel. Beej mantra is Ram.

Healers Perspective

Mental / Emotional / Psychological aspects:

This chakra symbolizes passionate consciousness and dynamism. It is associated with the level of being we call the personality, or ego. This is the area which defines our "self-esteem". When energy is not flowing freely from this chakra we have problems with self-esteem and confidence, our sense of adequacy, issues around responsibility and feeling caught in the middle. Strong self-esteem is a required for developing intuitive skills. This intuitive chakra is where we get our gut instincts that signal us to do or not to do something. Anyone experiencing dysfunction of the third chakra is having difficulty obtaining or maintaining his/her own "personal power". It is also the power center of the physical body. Malfunctioning of this chakra also results in lack of Will power, being stickler and self critical.

When it is functioning harmoniously, one will feel content and there will be no compulsion to compromise personal integrity. Relationships will be based on appropriateness, not on dependency, need, control, or manipulation. When participation is appropriate, it will natural response to environmental conditions. Also those with greater status will not try to subdue their subordinates, respect will be given to authority when it is earned, and withdrawn when it has been abused. When this chakra is imbalanced we can either veer into domination or helplessness.

When it is blocked fear will emerge in response to it. The fear of rejection, oversensitivity to criticism, self-image fears, fears of our secrets being found out, indecisiveness are the product of malfunctioning manipura chakra. Insecurity, jealousy, generative energy and wisdom are associated with it. If it is malfunctioning, the person will have uncontrolled extremes of emotion which may result in hypertension and adrenal exhaustion. Anger and frustration causes depletion of this chakra energy.

Manipura is concerned with people, places and things, as well as one's association to ideals, institutions, community, family, the sense of belonging, friendship, trust, contentment, and commitment, as well as the ability to remain calm during times of duress. It provide mental understanding of emotional life. A balanced third chakra gives you the awareness to know that it is important to live in harmony with others and to consider others when making decisions in life. The mooladhara and swadhisthana chakras know what we want to do, the solar chakra decides if we will do it. Many times this center acts as a block between heart and sexuality as the center related to health i.e. Anahata is above it and center related to sexuality i.e. Svadishthana is below. If both these chakras 38

Page 39: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

are functional and open but Manipur is blocked then a person's sexual life will be without emotional attachment and love and vice-versa.

It is related to the element heat, incandescence, and its sensory avenue is sight. Without light we can see nothing. Also, when we are warm and jovial that is manipura chakra giving forth the warmth of human contact.

Understand that trying to control what we cannot causes us to worry about the future and obsess about the past. Real self power is one that enables us to be comfortable irrespective of others and outside situations where we are able to maintain our composure. When we try to control others, we give away our powers to them because our happiness now depend upon their responses.

Physical aspects:

The proper functioning of this chakra is necessary for the digestion and absorption of food. The melodious music of life is played on the instrument of sound health. This chakra is highly important for overall health at all levels. Indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, duodenum, peptic ulcer, gall bladder, stomach ulcers, addictions, shortness of breath, hypoglycemia, intestinal tumors, diabetes, pancreatitis, hepatitis, cirrhosis, adrenal imbalances, arthritis, colon diseases are associated with malfunctioned manipura chakra. It governs upper abdomen, umbilicus to rib cage, liver, gallbladder, middle spine, spleen, kidney, adrenals, small intestines, stomach, sympathetic nervous system etc. It is also the seat of the nerve center that is the most direct interface between the voluntary and involuntary nerve systems. Breath control exercises exist because of this interface. Control the breath, and control the mind.

Symptoms of Imbalanced Manipura chakra:

Excessive yang can lead to aggressiveness or greed. Balance of this chakra will give self-motivation. Note: Whatever be the disease/issue/problem, we must heal this chakra. Low self confidence, need for approval, tendency to blame others, lethargy, Dominating personality trait, arrogance, self-centered overambitious etc.

Spiritual Perspective

The God Vishnu and Goddess Lakini are deities of this chakra. The download-pointed triangle represents the continuous down-flow of spiritual presence. The triangle is colored red to symbolize spiritual fire. The 10 petals, the color of a heavy rain cloud, symbolize a veil which clouds our inner vision .This has to be burned away through the effort of personal transformation.

The Heart chakra

The heart / Anahata chakra in Sanskrit means endless, 'un-struck or unbroken'; one that cannot be harmed. It is the centre of unbroken sound. This chakra is the most important of chakras because it contains the ability to feel divine and pure love for everyone. This is the place where our soul resides. Those people who have love, compassion, sense of sacrifice and sympathy, drive happiness from this chakra. It is due to heartfelt feelings and emotions that life changes its direction. Our ambitions and interests take a new path. The heart is even superior to brain, brain controls physical body while the brain itself is 39

Page 40: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

controlled by heart. Meditation on heart chakra will infuse the entire EMOTIONAL BODY with love and can restore a sense of WHOLENESS. It relates to the balance among Body, Mind and Spirit. It is located at the center of chest / At the center of chest. Beej mantra is Ham.

Healers Perspective

Mental / Emotional / Psychological aspects:

This chakra is not associated with personal love for the spouse/beloved nor with the sorrow of the broken heart. It is for a universalized love which is not limited to loved ones and those who love us in return. It is the compassion for stranger. It is the loving kindness for the greater human family. This love is purely altruistic. It is the master control center for regulating the emotions. It suggest the words "Love Heals All". It is an area that represents the deepest psychological significance. We say, 'I am touched' or 'I am moved'.

If it is not in balance, we may act lovingly but really feel resentful. We may give to others out of obligation rather than out of a genuine sense of goodwill. It is about giving and receiving love. If unbalanced, we have difficulty feeling love for ourselves or for others, we have difficulty receiving love or anything else from ourselves or others, and we feel cut off and all alone without feeling our connection to that divine light within us. we also tend to feel hurt by others easily. Hurtful situations like divorce, separation, bereavement, emotional abuse, abandonment, adultery cause disruption in its functioning.

Forgiveness is what emerges from here. Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment and to discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the Spirit. Everything that comes from heart comes from almighty God, as if he does not pull the breath, we will cease to exist.

The emotion regulated by this chakra is pain. If the heart chakra is blocked pain will emerge in response. If this remains blocked and one has become attached to the individual mind and ego the disruption can lead to feelings of hopelessness or despair. The love, compassion, confidence, inspiration, hope, despair, hate, envy, pride, insincerity, fear, jealousy, anger, generosity are linked to this chakra. Learning to love you is a powerful first step in securing a healthy fourth chakra. The "wounded child" resides in the heart chakra. If there is imbalance in this chakra, and one is not able to control unpleasant emotion like hate and envy, heart ailments are sure to ensue.

This chakra acts as a bridge between three chakras above and three chakras below in the bioplasmic body, distributing a uniform energy flow in both the directions. It is said that when the heart chakra is opened, wishes are spontaneously fulfilled through the activity of kalpa vriksha (wish tree) associated with it. The powers of this chakra indicate that personal karma has been completely absorbed, for this chakra is not subordinate to karmic forces. It brings an increased ability to direct prana. especially for healing. It permits a detached comprehension of karmic influences.

Since the heart chakra is the center of intuitive consciousness, it is from this chakra that the inner meanings of things can be grasped. One's personal rights are also upheld by this chakra. In the world of intellect it upholds the right to trust personal intuition, insight, and the finite human consciousness, no matter how these functions choose to manifest intellectually, creatively, verbally, through metaphor, the written word, or the arts. This center generates poetic wisdom.

The element of the area is air; its sensory avenue is touch. Its motor output or organ of action is the procreative action, the act of reproduction, but that reproduction can take 40

Page 41: Reiki healing - reikitirth reiki-manual

place in the mind as well as the body. In tantra and kriya the movement of consciousness, the rotation of consciousness around the body, is a tactile experience in which you create your own sensation of movement, heat, cold, pressure. Yoga nidra is an opening up of anahata chakra through learning to experience the tactile sensations of heat, cold, touch, pain, light pressure, deep pressure; all these sensations are deliberately activated.

Physical aspects:

This chakra governs heart, circulatory system, blood, lungs, rib cage, diaphragm, thymus, breasts, esophagus, shoulders, arms, hands. It is related to the thymus which is a part of the immune system, as well as a part of the endocrine system. It produces T cells responsible for fighting off disease, and is adversely affected by stress. This centre produces the anti-bodies till the age of twelve years which are circulated in the whole body to fight any kind of attack on the body / mind. If there is any attack on the person these anti-bodies are informed through the sternum, which has a remote control of information.

Diseases associated with this chakra imbalance include tuberculosis, arrhythmias, hypertension, coronary heart disease, asthma, high cholesterol, breast (cancer and fibromas), shoulder and esophagus problems, asthma, lung & breast cancers, thoracic spine, pneumonia, upper back, breast Cancer etc. People suffering from high stress due to their unjustified workaholic nature need to balance this chakra, as this indicates that you do not love yourself.

Symptoms of Imbalanced heart chakra:

Excessive yang leads to insensitivity. Excessive yin leads to hypersensitivity or the feeling of emptiness. Extreme physical or mental activity, heartfelt bad relations (especially mother’s), no confidence in God, anti-God activities, outside attention, no seeking, no interest in self, emotionally closed, passivity, reserved.

Spiritual Perspective

The God Isa and Goddess Kakini are the deities of this chakra. It contains brahma granthi. This chakra is considered as entry point into vigyanmaya kosha.

It is intimately connected to the power of sound and symbolize a consciousness free from matter. The sensory element associated with it is hearing, and its motor output is talking, the tongue. There is a relationship between what we hear and what we say. Hence we have the saying 'deaf and dumb'. In order to be able to speak, one must actually first have heard.

Healers Perspective

Mental / Emotional / Psychological aspects:

This chakra represents the union of mind, body and spirit. Its importance is more on spiritual level than on physical level. It is associated with imagination, visualization, perception of light, transdence. This chakra is free from karmic factors and its activation helps us deal with factors which are both personal and of group origin. The power to affect and alter other's karma is enhanced by this chakra. This chakra is the only chakra that merges directly with cosmic energy.

Direct knowing is the first function of this chakra. Rational thinking requires deduction or anticipation before conclusion while knowing / perception through aagya chakra is marked by immediacy and directness. A spiritual practice awakens the higher mind which functions through a direct perception of reality. Intuition, extrasensory perception and abilities like clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience are associated with it. It dissolves all our conditionings, ego, habits, false ideas, and misidentifications. Our ability to separate reality from delusions is in connection with the healthfulness of this chakra.

No specific emotion is associated with this chakra but its importance lies in that, that it is the master controller entity of whole human system. If it is not in harmony whole human body at all levels is likely to suffer. It has an important influence on memory. One will remember events by re-experiencing the energetic fields associated with them including those that emerge as emotions, sensations and feelings. Inflated egos, arrogance, aggressiveness, condemnation, contempt, and worry cause this Chakra to be blocked thereby inviting suffering. Lack of discipline, judgement, evaluation, emotional intelligence etc has been observed when it is malfunctioning.

It is the place where power of silence is experienced. When activated, our thought waves elongate so that the space between the two thoughts grows wider. This space is Silence and as the petals of the Chakra open up, silence blossoms pushing our thoughts to the periphery of our awareness. This is where the state of thoughtless awareness or Nirvikalpa Samadhi happens through the grace of God. In this state we actually feel the beautiful Silence, the Stillness, which is at the heart of creation.

The endocrine glands pineal and pituitary are associated with it, whose working depends upon various factors like, physical conditions, environment, behavior, intention, and belief. 43

Using crystal with reiki

Crystals absorb energy of surroundings which include thought forms of nearby people and therefore crystals even when not in use need to be cleansed on regular basis. Most commonly used method for cleaning them is to leave them overnight in rock salt water. In morning put them in running water for say 1 or 2 minutes. Now keep the crystal between your hands and give reiki to it.
