The baneful scope of world events has produced an exceeding amount of fear as to what the future may hold with the rise of the coronavirus. It could take months and even years for things to recover at this point. However, among all the possible attempts to find a solution, very few alternative therapies have been discussed. This article provides a simple overview that is being put in place involving the use of Reiki.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a spiritual technology that is often classified as an alternative medicinal therapy form, due to its energy healing properties. Although it is said to have descended from a more ancient paradigm, historically, it was “rediscovered” and cultivated by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1922. Reiki is a compound term consisting of rei (meaning; divine, ghost, mysterious sign, and spirit) and ki (meaning: vital force, which is known in Chinese medicine as chi and/or qi). While some literature and websites have erroneously defined reiki as “universal lifeforce,” older alchemical texts like the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine records more than 270 classifications of qi energy. Therefore, we can say that reiki is a distinct form of ki energy and should be observed as such.
How Does Reiki Work?
Reiki is the transference of a particular form of ki energy that is emitted from the hands of the practitioner into the aura of the recipient. Reiki can also be sent to a client over a long distance or to individuals in quarantine by sympathetic of mind contact through the use of various symbols. Many hospitals throughout the world have adopted Reiki as a complementary therapeutic form of healing.
While Reiki is a controversial topic in the academic world, research and recent studies have confirmed Reiki’s potential. In a Daily News article written by Meredith Engel titled Does energy healing really work? The Daily News puts four methods to the test, we read the following:
“One 2013 study found that 10 minutes of energy healing was as effective as physical therapy in improving the range of motion in people with mobility problems. UCLA even has en electromyography (EMG) lab that studies electrical activity in the body.”
More specific benefits of Reiki are cited by Astrology Answers in an article titled 5 Indisputable Scientific Facts About Reiki Healing That will Amaze You. Those wishing to practice reiki would need an attunement. Reiki’s initiatory path is divided up into three levels of attunement, which are Shoden First Teachings, Okuden Inner Teachings, and Shinpiden Mastery Teachings. Most Reiki schools in the western hemisphere impart Reiki knowledge in three levels or degrees for students to learn, which are Reiki I, Reiki II and Reiki III, which is Reiki Master Level.
Reiki Marathon Against The Coronavirus
Moving into the year 2020, humanity is at a crossroads. As we have encountered the coronavirus new challenges have definitely arisen and the total damage that this pandemic will leave behind is insurmountable. However, what we do know is that the human potential will survive. I can only imagine that in this stage of our history it is time for the East to meet the West in terms of healing and applying practical technologies with the mystical antidotes.
In America, mainly due to federal regulations, it would take close to a year before sny medical cures would be available. Perhaps this is the time for ancient technology to be reborn. For every superhero, there is an anti-hero or villain, and as coronavirus lurks throughout every human caste system possible, so too does Reiki supersede gender preference, race, and religion. The greatest cure is within the innate aspects of our human psyche.
Sponsored by The Art of Ninzuwu, Reiki Marathon Against The Coronavirus is a committed effort by Reiki practitioners to use this technology to help combat the advancement of the coronavirus. There are two distinct aspects of the marathon. The first aspect is for reiki practitioners to join the marathon by just sending us an email with your name, reiki bio, and location to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that this is a grassroots effort. You will receive some basic instruction for daily practice and may be assigned several clients to send healing energy to at a distance.
The second part of the marathon is to receive requests from those affected by the coronavirus and to promote this free healing service. Those who would like to petition reiki healing for themselves or a family member, please send all correspondence to email@example.com. We appreciate all the support that we can gain in this effort from individuals and organizations. Let’s make this an opportunity to demonstrate the gains that can be achieved by human unity.
