There are many words for a persons energy. You may
hear it called life force, ki, qui, prana or many other variations. Usui Reiki
uses just one unique form of universal energy that differs from life force
energy. Thats why you have to open to this particular form of universal
energy. Mikao Usui was connected directly to a very strong type of universal
energy but all through history people have used or connected to other forms.
Whenever you get an attunement from a Reiki teacher,
theres a shift that occurs within your body, mind and spirit because your
pathway to the universe is opening to let more universal energy flow through
you. If you want to be totally open so that you can be with the universe, youll
have to study and practice for years. Mikao Usui spent years taking in all
sorts of knowledge before he reached his first awakening. It was only after his
second awakening following 3 years of disciplined Zen practice and deep
meditation that he connected to the universal energy.
Even though the phrase Reiki attunement has become
quite popular, many people dont truly understand what it means. An attunement
is just the first step to opening yourself to receive universal energy. Only
people that are serious about Reiki and all it has to offer can truly understand
what a Reiki attunement is.
Mikao Usui never became a doctor but he did travel a
path that allowed him to leave his mark on the world. While medical doctors
arent required to study Reiki, its not uncommon to find trained and qualified
medical doctors that are also Reiki students or masters. These doctors can
apply healing in many different ways following the receiving of their
You may feel as if youve received the feeling of an
attunement from someone that wasnt connected to the universal energy. There
are different energies inside of you that arent universal energies, which
means they arent Reiki. The energy known as Reiki is unique from any other. A
Reiki attunement cant be described as any other type of energy.
Something to keep in mind is that vibrations of
harmony and love that universal energy provides always feel the same. However,
the person through which this energy flows can change the feeling, look and
smell of the energy.If you wish to learn about Reiki and what a true attunement
is like, the choice to follow this path is open to everyone. Just be aware that
no all paths go to the same place.
