SAUCE : What is Reiki and how does it fit within the energy healing space?
Olivia : Reiki is traditionally, a Japanese method of healing using the hands. It was created by Dr. Mikao Usui, who grew up in a Buddhist community and became a Monk, spending most of his time in a monastery. He spent his educated years in medicine, psychology and theology, and in 1865 founded Usui Reiki.
Usui realised the body had an energetic system, and that ailments could be healed by directing the universal source Reiki Energy through the hands and into the body. It works on not only a physical level, but also helps to heal mental and emotional ailments too.
Usui channelled these teachings after a stint of prolonged meditation and fasting. He used the Reiki Healing method and healed many people. He knew that these teachings must be handed down to further share this healing method throughout the world, so started training students. For students to also use this Reiki Energy to heal, students must undergo an ‘attunement’. The Reiki Energy is attuned at a specific frequency of source energy. Using ancient sanskrit symbols that were given to Usui during his channelling of this modality, the Reiki energy is released. The symbols have been passed down from teachers to students over the years, and are considered sacred to preserve this healing modality.
