What Is Reiki?
By Rev. Kenneth Dyer, Psychic Healer


My actual aura taken with Kirlian photography in April, 2008.

Reiki is a Japanese technique of holistic healing for stress reduction and relaxation. It is one of many different modalities of "energy healing." Reiki is NOT connected with the medical field, it is spiritual healing and a Reiki practitioner is NOT a doctor or a medical professional. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means "Universal Life" and (Ki) which means "Energy". Being quite similar but much more gentle than acupressure or acupuncture, Reiki Masters work with the chakras and meridians of the energetic light body (aura) It is administered by "laying on hands" (but touch is not necessary it can be done either directly on the body or just above the body and can also be sent via long distances) Energy healing is based upon Einstein's scientifically proven fact that we are all made of nothing but pure ENERGY. We are all bodies of light. Nothing is solid. Everyone has an aura. It's also been scientifically proven that our aura changes colors when our emotions change, and as we go thru our day. Positive energy breeds physical wellness. Positive thoughts and positive energy literally heals physical illnesses. If one's aura contains too many negative vibrations, or if we think too many negative thoughts, then we are more likely to get physically and mentally ill or feel stress, and if we are high in positive energy and positive thoughts, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. What I do as a healer is remove negative energies and replace them with positive energies. I also remove blockages in the flow of energy through the chakra system.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe and everyone can learn it and use it. It also promotes spiritual/personal growth and recovery. As a person who was once very alienated from people, depressed and generally stressed on life, I can attest that it has completely changed my life and has been nothing short of a miracle for me. I feel that Reiki has saved my life. It also works in conjunction with and is a very nice compliment to all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

When applying Reiki people often tell me that my hands feel like a heating pad, and they report tingling sensations and a very comforable state of relaxation. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind and spirit.

Many have reported miraculous results:

One example of my personal successes was when I had a co-worker who had a shoulder that hurt so badly that he couldn't raise his arm above his head. He was like this for one full year and had been seen by medical doctors. I casually did Reiki on him for about 15 minutes one night during a slow period at work. The next day he came into work waving his arm around above his head and told me there was only very minimal pain. 15 minutes of Reiki cured a 1 yr old shoulder problem that the medical doctor was unable to fix.

Another example is a life long friend of mine, Steve, who had suffered from severe back pain. He had been to doctors for years and was taking pain medications daily. Nothing was helping. I talked him into coming to my free Reiki circle, and he came hobbling in like an old man limping. It took him much effort just to get onto the massage table. He was a hurting unit. I did a full one hour treatment on him for 3 consecutive Sundays, and by the fourth week he was giving me credit for "curing" his back pain. He is now a very serious Reiki Master and goes out playing basketball, does yard work, etc and says that Reiki has been a miracle in his life and changed his whole perspective. (He is available for his testimony if anyone who reads this has doubts about this story.)

Reiki's 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. Anyone can learn it and use it!!

Reiki Masters tune into the energy of the aura and use intuition to guide their healings. Different Reiki Master's have different psychic gifts. Some are empathic and feel people's energy, some are clairvoyant, some clairaudient and some just have an inner knowing about things. Everyone has psychic gifts, it is just a matter of unlocking them by ridding yourself of negative energy (baggage) from the past. Negative energy and stored pain from the past blocks intuitive abilities. That is why many of us had experiences as children with psychic abilities but no longer have them. As we grew older the baggage began to accumulate and the abilities started to dissipate. The more you purify your aura, the more you let go of pain from the past, the more intuitive you'll become once again. We can all develop these abilities and awareness, it is a gift from God.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is NOT a religion. People from all different walks of life and religions practice Reiki. It has no dogma. There is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki, however if you are a skeptic and are closed off to the possibility of it producing results, that can hinder or perhaps even prevent it from working at all. Just be open minded and all is good.

Although Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that is as peaceful and harmonious as possible. Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder modern Reiki, created a list of ethical ideals which are good ideas and ring true in most if not all cultures.
