Giving and receiving Reiki through the Usui System of Reiki Healing stimulates a process that brings a clearer sense of self, deepening self love, and a growing awareness of one's true self.
Emotional pain is carried by many people in their unconscious. As human beings, we satisfy our physical needs and desires first. This is a survival mechanism. As these physical needs are resolved, emotional well being emerges as the next priority. Out of the unconscious arises the pain of living in an insecure environment. As we become more aware of this pain and, in time, the causes of the pain, we are able to make different decisions and remove ourselves from repetitive situations that threaten our emotional life.
Self-treatment is the foundation practice of the Usui System. In the simple act of touching one's body with the awareness of the Reiki energy flowing, the places of emotional pain are touched, highlighted. For those students who have been acquiring skill in self evaluation and awareness, the process of personal growth is intensified. For those who are faced with pain uncovered for the first time, the process of personal growth is initiated. This initiation into self awareness is often accompanied by memories, confusion, and fear. The practice of the Usui System calls for continued self-treatment as well as treatment from others.
Healing on this level, once in motion, has its own timing. It cannot be rushed and there are no shortcuts. The practitioner is supported by trusting the practice and seeking the support of like-minded people.
Another aspect inherent in the practice of Reiki is the awakening of a spiritual practice, an ever-deepening of one's spirituality. We develop a growing sense of ourselves in relationship to All That Is. We experience spiritual purification, a burning away of all that prevents our knowing All That Is. We become aware of the sacred in all aspects of our lives. Students recognize the Usui Reiki System as a valid and whole spiritual discipline when they reach a certain level of maturity with their own practice. Experience with the System has revealed that the practice itself leads to spiritual development.
"Spiritual" is discussed here in the sense that, as human beings, we have a soul, a spirit. In living a spiritual life, we acknowledge our relationship with spirit and its presence in all things. As we become more acquainted with the nuances and qualities of spirit, spirit takes on substance. The consciousness of living this spiritual life emerges as a result of the practice of the Usui System. The contact to spirit is increased by the ritual of initiation and the acts of self treatment and treatment of others.
Through the practice of the Usui Reiki System, humans no longer need to accept spirit as intangible and non-physical. This practice brings the experience of spirit into the physical world and into our essential human-ness.
"I was quite apprehensive about attending a 15 day course and was nervous that I would not be able to keep up or that I would make a fool of myself. However, I need not have worried. The course was very well structured, paced and the Bennett/Stellar University Team were a pleasure to work with. I could not help but get happier and happier as the course progressed."
