Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Defining Reiki and the Benefits of Practice

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  Reiki uses simple light touch, referred to as hands-on, or no-touch techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of energy in an individual.

Reiki is a Japanese term that comes from two words: “REI” and “KI”. “REI” means “Spirit, Miraculous or Divine; Universal Spirit, or Higher Power” and “KI” means “consciousness, force, vital energy, or breath of life”. Reiki can be literally interpreted as “universal life-force energy”. The Reiki Practitioner is trained to act as a conduit for this “universal life-force energy” to effectively improve the flow of “ki” or “chi” in self and others.
A healer's power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses. Eric Micha'el Leventhal.
Reiki evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of its Founder, Dr. Mikao Usui.  While seeking answers to spiritual questions, Dr. Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings through many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practicing and teaching Reiki.

Many variations of Reiki have developed since Dr. Mikao Usui's first students were attuned. However, one tradition remains, and this tradition dictates that Reiki is taught by Reiki Master/Teachers who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master/Teacher to student.
