Hi, I’m Judith Conroy of Chikara-Reiki-Do and I’m answering your questions on Reiki…
What is the difference between Usui Reiki Tibetan Reiki and Kundalini Reiki?
Only the symbols and rituals.
The Reiki symbols and rituals are simply tools to use, demonstrate and feel your energy inside and out.
If you trawl the internet there are over 400 different types of Reiki, but the essence is still the same.
I certainly have not tried them all and have no inclination to do so either.
Each one claims to be this or that, deeper, better more whatever – but it all boils down to choice, and what suits the individual.
I like plain and simple without the fluffy bits. I don’t need a bag full of symbols when six will do the same job…
And all you need is something that works for you.
But when it works for you exactly what is it that’s happened?
What did you just experience?
Reiki is not just a healing thing, it never was in the beginning, but somehow most people have got stuck in trying to heal the world and all its residents.
And that’s okay, but it’s not the best part.
By using the Reiki symbols and rituals on yourself, for yourself, you start to understand something of the nature of the One energy.
You start to sense shifts and changes in it…
And, most importantly, in your own energy.
Then you realize that you can sense this in others too. And that by simply being there and sharing energy with another person, you can blend with and stabilize all the energy around you, including your own.
Hence the saying, heal the man – heal the world.
You create a ripple effect.
When something works for you, we might say you had an eye-opening experience – your eyes are open to that inner part of you, or to the inner power of you…
You came home for a fleeting second or two.
The more you use Reiki to go on an inward journey, the more centered, balanced, strong and powerful you find yourself becoming.
You have more of the moments where, ‘it worked’ for you.
Those magic moments when suddenly everything in your life harmonizes with the universe the cosmic order of things – the feeling of being, at one with it all.
I know you know what I mean, and the words all sound so mushy, but the feelings you get are not.
Our self-given mission in this life is not to change the world, it’s to be ourselves with confidence…
Then the rest will all fall perfectly into place.
But you are the power. You are the energy. Simply choose whichever method works best for you!
Thanks for listening.
