Most of us know that Reiki is spiritually guided life energy. However, in the Reiki community, there have been some varying opinions as to what a Reiki treatment should or should not include. Some practitioners use crystals, essential oils, and drums or sound healing techniques. Others might share intuitive or psychic information that they receive. These are just about the differences of opinion but the Reiki healing is often associated with myths as well.
We have listed down some of the myths about Reiki below that may surprise you.
Reiki is a religion or sect
Reiki is indeed associated with spirituality, but it is not related to any religion or sect. You will not find any church, priest, sermon, or mass anywhere which is related to Reiki. Besides, you will never find a group of Reiki practitioners having fanatical views. Those who practice Reiki are not believers but rather they are independent thinkers. The principles of Reiki have no connection with any religion.
Reiki is a new-age therapy
Many people think that Reiki is a modern age practice. But it originated in Japan by Master Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. It is not complicated at all. Reiki is quite easy to understand. It revolves around the energy that is transferred from the student to any other subject.
Reiki can heal everything
Reiki doesn’t have the ability to heal everything rather it supports creating a relaxing environment and promotes a state of body and mind conducive to healing. It involves alleviating symptoms and addressing the cause of the conditions. Reiki healing involves mental and emotional release and balances to help find the root cause of any condition, keep the treatment on track, as well as create an optimal environment for the body to heal.
All in all, a treatment that targets the root cause can alleviate symptoms and physical condition and we can find it in Reiki instead of conventional healing.
You only need Reiki once
People can find it right but it is not entirely accurate. Some people can feel noticeable effects after a single session while others do not. Reiki works to promote healing and healing is the process that takes place over time. Generally, a person should go through at least three or four sessions of Reiki to experience the changes. Many people start with a series of 10 sessions and then adjust their energy after that.
As Reiki uses divine energy, it is free
The energy source is free however gaining the skills and ability to use it the right way is not. The same applies to setting up a classroom, website, advertising, facilities, and research. All these help the participants to get access to knowledge and development trends.
People pay for the skills and expertise of Reiki masters and instructors that they have developed, just like the way you pay healthcare providers.
