There are a lot of people that have heard the term Reiki but may not know exactly what that term means in practical use. There are some people that think Reiki is some kind of religion like Buddhism or Hinduism.
That couldn’t be further from the truth. Reiki is not a religion at all, although they do practice a moral obligation that most religions adhere to in their sacred texts. Since Reiki isn’t a religion, some people that thought it was will probably be wondering what it is then. The easiest way to explain it is in terms of energy.
Anyone that practices Reiki is aware that energy is the basis of everything in the universe. By training yourself to sense and utilize this energy, you are able to help those in need. Reiki Masters are capable of focusing this energy to heal ailments in a patient. They will not tell you that they can work miracles, however.
They will tell you that it can be an ongoing aspect that requires multiple healing sessions. While some may think this is a scam to get more money, it isn’t. There are aspects to Reiki that you need to understand to see past the scam issues.
Reiki healing requires the practitioner to use their own energy in helping to heal a patient. If the patient has a severe medical issue, then the healer must use more of their own energy. Because of this, the healer will need time to rest and gain that energy back before being able to help any further. It will also create the time the body needs to use the energy as it is intended to be used. You will also find that most Reiki Masters will not charge money for healing sessions as it goes against their moral principles.
Reiki requires its practitioners to focus on the positive energy around and in all things.
If you put a negative aspect like money into this energy field then the healing aspect will be dampened and no good will come out of the session. Yes, there are some that use Reiki as a scam to get money, and these scam artists are fairly easy to spot by looking at their surroundings and attitude.
