A little explanation on ‘Reiki Prayer’

I appreciate that this poem makes a lot more sense if you are familiar with Reiki! But I could not help posting it: Reiki is something very dear to me, and is a part of my life. It seemed fitting to write a poem – another thing very dear to me; writing, obviously – about it.

For those of you that have not come across Reiki, let me explain – briefly: It is an energy healing force, that works on the body, mind, emotions and soul. It differs from other energy healing, in that the practitioners use specific symbols to help enhance and balance the energy. Practitioners have to go through three degrees of training: 1st, 2nd, Master. Each level opens up more Reiki energy able to be channeled, and more ‘powerful’ symbols. A Master is simply ‘Teacher’, one who can attune others to the Reiki energy, as well as use the Dai-Ko-Myo and Raku symbols.

Ch-Ku-Rei is like a spiral, sending energy down and through the body, it ‘energises’ ‘powers up’ the healing being sent. Sei-He-Ki is balance; harmony, and mostly works on the emotional level of the person being healed. Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen is basically Spiritual, healing on the soul level. It is enlightenment; clearing of Karma.

Dai-Ko-Myo is a more powerful Cho-Ku-Rei, like a battery charger adding more life to the healing energy. Finally Raku, Masters are told in training, is only ever to be used to pass the attunements – though I have experimented with this, and it is a very powerful symbol when used in other ways or in meditation (Please don’t try this at home!)

Well, I hope this gives you an understanding of why and how I have written this poem – and I hope it makes a little more sense!
