Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a healing technique thousands of years old. It is thought to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice that was rediscovered in the late 1800’s by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist.

Reiki is Japanese for ‘Universal Life Force’. The energy is known as ‘Chi’ in Chinese or ‘Prana’ in Indian cultures. If the energy channel (meridian) becomes blocked, dis-ease can then be experienced in various forms.

Reiki is an invisible energy that may be felt as cold or heat and perhaps tingling. It is a gentle, yet powerful healing energy; it energises both the practitioner and the recipient. Reiki works at a cellular level, boosting energy at each level, physical, mental spiritual and emotional. Reiki never causes harm as the energy will flow to whichever part of the body that requires it most.

Reiki never interferes with the recipient’s religion or spiritual beliefs; in fact it can reaffirm their belief. You do not need to have belief in Reiki, just the willingness to be healed.

Reiki was a long lost method of healing rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the mid-nineteenth century.

He was impressed with Buddha’s quest for enlightenment, even though the Buddha, having been born into extreme wealth, did not lack any material need or pleasure. Dr Usui was fascinated by both the Buddha’s desire to help others and the unusual metaphysical abilities he received after achieving enlightenment. He also noted that the Buddha was said to be able to heal physical illness and that many of this disciples acquired healing abilities by following his teachings.

He saw many people around him that were sick and wondered if it would be possible to acquire the ability to heal physical illness in the same way the Buddha had done.

He was determined to learn the secret of healing so that he may help others. His studies took him several years and on many travels. He learned Chinese and Sanskritt so as he could read sacred books. It was in the Indian sutras, written in Sanskrit that he discovered a formula for contacting a higher power that could bestow healing.

He set out on a pilgrimage to a holy mountain called Kori-Yama; there he stayed for 21 days. Eventually on the 21st in the evening, a point of light came towards him. He realised the light had a consciousness and that it was communicating with him. He realised the light had the healing power he was looking for and to receive it, he must allow the light to strike him.

After the incredible experience he was able to go and heal the sick. He decided that he needed to pass on his knowledge and abilities to others so that the healing can be continued after he had departed this world. He set up a healing centre to heal the sick and also trained assistants to help. Dr Usui set out to initiate select people and used a particular ceremony called ‘Attunements’. Special symbols are passed on from ‘Master’ to student to enable them to perform healing.

Anyone is able to become attuned to the healing symbols, it is a simple training.

Karuna is a sanskritt word used in Hinduism and Zen, meaning ‘compassionate action’, or any action taken to help alleviate suffering of others.

Karuna summed up as wisdom tempered with compassion.

Karuna Reiki was developed by William Lee Rand, an American Reiki Master.

KorManu is ancient and futuristic. It comes to us from the fourteenth dimension, which is the full-circle of past, present and future. It has its birth in the language of the Dolphins and comes to earth from the Dolphin planet. It is used in many of the major star systems, which is where we originally learned it. KorManu is being brought to earth through the co-creative efforts of human receivers, dolphin holders and interdimensional beings who are committed to the awakening of this planet. KorManu is intelligent, powerful, creative and dramatic. It is evolutionary; therefore individuals who have received this attunement will be inspired by Spirit in the moment, and will bring through many other symbols and methods of moving Light. It is evolutionary, therefore individuals who have received this attunement will be assisted in their own personal evolution – their ascension process.
