Reiki: Q & A

By // No comments:

1. What is Reiki?
Rei means “Universe”, KI stands for “Life Force Energy”.
2. Where it comes from?
Mikao Usui  of Japan received divine empowerment to heal others. He named this as “Reiki”. It flows from master to disciple through lineage.
3. What it can do?
It brings our body’s energy system in balance from imbalance, thus promotes healing for any physical or mental disease.
4. For which diseases it is effective?
It can be used for any issue. It doesn’t work on the disease, rather on the cause of disease.
5. How long it takes to cure?
Generally, offered 5 to 10 sessions. But, it may take longer or even healed in one session within few minutes where medical science has no answer.
6. How diagnosis is done in Reiki?
Reiki has self intellect what to do, where to do, how much to do. Body absorbs Reiki as much as required through a Reiki Chanel from the cosmos.
7.Is it recognized by Medical Council of India?
No
8.How it has come to medical practice?
Reiki has been practiced worldwide. In developed countries,  Reiki has been adopted as a good support in modern medical treatment.
Like in America_
Hartford Hospital, Brigham And Women’s Hospital, Nashua Hospital, Emerson Hospital, North Shore Medical Center Hospital, USA
In Europe-
Southampton University Hospitals NHS, Aintree University Hospitals NHS, Liverpool, Wallace Cancer Care (works with Addenbrooke’s Hospital-Cambridge University Hospitals NHS), South Tees Hospitals NHS, Middlesbrough, Newham University Hospital NHS, London, Intergrative Medicine and Digestive Center, MaryLand, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, St Teresa’s Hospice and many more.
In India though it is not legally framed, patient party often approach Reiki healers to treat their patients at hospitals during visiting hours or in distance mode and discover faster recovery, better results.
9. What if happens, I take one session, can't continue it?
Reiki is a spiritual healing, even 5 minutes of Reiki given, it's never left the patient empty handed. It's something beyond human's understanding.

 Narmada Parikrama Is Just A Matter Of Faith Or Real Boon

Mountains, Forests and Rivers are the best place for sadhus to meditate and perform their spiritual practice. Since thousand years, The banks of Ma Narmada are enriched with lots of spiritual seekers. So, the whole atmosphere is highly charged that helps the new comers to get in to deep at ease. There are many ashrams or institutions where one can learn many new things, clear their doubts for their spiritual progress. When a devotee watch other devotees doing hard practice, It motivates to perform better.
For a new comer, it is good to visit spiritual places. But, for a mature mind who has already received a direction from an enlightened Guru. It need not to go anywhere or meet any other spiritual face. Rather  It may distract from its regular practice and achieving its goal. In exceptional cases, Guru may direct its disciple to stay at some place for a period of time at some certain phase of spiritual practice.
Narmade Har!!!

Philosophical Aspects
Everyone in this society is working hard for their survival, fulfilling their daily needs. Later, some get to realize the source of real happiness when we start to do share our achievements with others or do self less service. It is very necessary and an important part of life. In every religion, it is directed to do seva that could be by physical efforts, words, intellects or money. It purifies our ego. Mind gets elevated to an higher surface.
People start thinking, ”from where they have come? Where they will go? Why is this life? Who are they in reality? Just a body or some soul exists? etc”. They start finding the answers from religions. Here start the spiritual Journey. At first, We need grace of the supreme to understand its creation. Therefore, We do puja. Damodareshwar Shivalingam where Shiva Shakti both resides,  promise devotees  the divine blessings of all Devi -Devtaas for all their materialistic needs or guidance to the journey of self realization. As after Puja, the last step remains for a devotee to follow some regular practice as instructed by an enlightened Guru.
