This Reiki Community

Article by Deborah Lloyd, Reiki Master

How amazing is it that Reiki practitioners from all over the world visit this site on a daily basis! While there may be some minor cultural differences, the most overwhelming aspect is the core belief in this healing modality, and in the practice of Reiki. People who read the articles and participate in the discussions live the Reiki path as they strive to incorporate Reiki into their daily lives.

Each one of us has a story of how we first heard of Reiki, when we received our first treatment, how we decided to attend a Reiki training, and so on. Likewise, our individual practices of how and when we use Reiki have developed over time. We have learned the more we use Reiki, whether for others or ourselves, the more our understanding and acceptance deepens.

During my Reiki I class, now over 15 years ago, I remember my Reiki Master giving us this message: if we give ourselves Reiki every day, our lives will change in ways that we could not even begin to imagine. She was so right! While I was hoping for some relief from chronic fatigue, I could not have imagined how much better my physical body would improve. I had no idea how strongly the mind, body, and spirit energies are interconnected (although I believed in the concept). I did not think I’d become a Reiki Master, offering Reiki sessions and trainings. I did not know I would inform others about Reiki through a book, nor write articles for a Reiki website with an international readership. I did not know that my spiritual beliefs would expand in new and exciting ways. My life is on a totally different course than I could have ever dreamed. And, what is truly exciting – my experience is the universal experience of all who live the Reiki path. The details of our stories are different, but the core is the same.

Because Universal Life Force Energy is the source of Reiki, and the highest good of the receiver is always the intention, there are no limitations to the beautiful energies brought onto earth every time Reiki is given. The Universe sees the “big picture” of each individual life and of the human community as a whole – as well as the animal kingdom, the environment and Mother Earth. As each individual person gains a growing knowledge of how energy emanates into, through and from all living things, s/he understands the power of each thought and action. The more frequently we connect with Reiki energies, the greater the constant stream of love and peace is brought into our world – both on an individual level and on a worldwide level.

Because we are human beings with egos and emotions, it is not easy to always achieve and maintain harmony. That is why connecting with each other is an essential element on the Reiki path. We are not islands, separate from each other. Rather, the energies of every person on earth (and Spirit World too) are as interconnected to each other, as our individual mind, body, spirit energies are interconnected. We may give and receive support from Reiki practitioners in our own community; or, we may connect through the international community, such as this website.

For me, Reiki Rays is a blessing in my life. Learning about other cultures, religions and belief systems has always been an interest of mine. Learning about other beliefs and points-of-view within the global Reiki community is especially enriching and delightful. Take a few minutes and give gratitude for this website, its founders, and every single person who participates in any way. This Reiki community is changing the world into a place of love and peace!!

    My gratitude is boundless. Reiki rays brought me the light. It brought me to light. I am new to it and I thought how would I study ,who would teach me, who would guide me, I do not have surplus to pay the fees. But the universe was listening .it took to here. I learn each day. Now whatever i do reiki is with me. I have learnt till master level. I do self healing. I give reiki in person to 7persons. Thru distance to my family. My office staff. To three pet dogs. I feel so positive. It’s not that negative thoughts don’t come. They do but each evening as I read reiki rays I feel energy. I have read all the books available here. So my new life is your gift. I am thankful and grateful.
    Lots of love .
