Divided into two loosely termed branches reiki is divided into two
branches that are known as Japanese and Western Reiki.
In general it is divided into 3 major stages of proficiency, which are
first, second and third degree, those who practice reiki will be able to
cure and heal themselves and others as well.
The second stage of practitioners has the capability to cure and heal
anyone from a distance, which is referred as distance healing. The
final degree (highest) is the vital level in which the practitioner is
meticulously knowledge with the essential acquaintance and
proficiency to edify and attune others to reiki practice.
In simple words, it is a simple method of healing concept with holistic
methods and without using any medications at all. The method is
done by the practitioner by placing his or her hands on the person
who needs the healing.
The basic idea of the process is to emit positive energy from the
practitioner to the recipient and indulge in the healing process. There
have been some strange claims which states that the healing energy is
self seeking and can "zero" in on the wound to begin the healing
The prevailing feature in reiki healing process is the positive energy
that is assumed to emit for curing and healing purposes. Since the
energy of the practitioner is said to be positive and at higher optimum
levels, he or she have to follow certain practices to be a successful
practitioner. One of the main and the most important factor is to keep
the body and mind as clean and pure as possible.
Most of the people still believe that Japanese reiki adds more focus on
specific areas which needs healing, which is as opposed to the second
type of western reiki style which normally treats entire body.
Although this method of healing, Reiki has existed for long time, it is
in this generation that it is considered as an alternative method to
seeking the traditional and standard medical treatments. Learning
and attaining knowledge in this form of art is simple and does not
need extensive rational capacities, neither does it need or takes lot of
years to master in it. The magnificence of reiki is its easy accessibility
to pass it from the teacher to student with no much bias.
