What Is Reiki?

Blessings Rain Down

 

People often think of Reiki as a practice of giving blessings.

 

Which is true.

 

Reiki is a blessings practice.

 

But often I am reminded of what it truly means that this practice (and other sister practices) is a blessings practice.

 

We give, yes. And we receive, true.

 

But ultimately, we are reminded through the practice, again and again, of the blessings that already are.

 

Blessings ready for the plucking.

 

Ready for the recognition.

 

Ready to be who we already are.

 

We are already blessed. Infinitely so.

 

Reiki practice and all spiritual practices make us aware of the blessing of being. And all the smaller blessings that rain down from that essential blessing.

 

It is like going into a snow fall and putting our faces and arms up to the snow.

 

Tilting our heads and sticking out our tongues to catch the shimmering flakes and taste them.

 
All my love,

Alice

Love Letter to the Universe

Spread the love, be the love! Share this image wherever you like. It’s a new kind of Free Love.

Dear Reiki Pulse peeps,

 

I’ve been thinking about you and me and this blog lately. I don’t write you nearly as much as I’d like, and this morning it hit me:

 

Almost all I want to do is write you love letters, love notes, love missives, and love poems.

 

I want to leave you little knickknacks to remind you of how beautiful you truly are.

 

I want to sing you love songs.

 

I want to romance you, get intimate with you, share all of me and all of you. The real me, the real you.

 

I want this blog, this website, the Reiki Pulse page on Facebook, every one of my healing sessions and classes and practices and workshops, my heart, my mind, and my entire being to be a tangible space where you can realize unlimited, unconditional love.

 

Is it boring, talking of almost nothing but love? Saying the same thing in many ways and sometimes the same ways?

 

Maybe.

 

But perhaps it’s time for me to give permission to myself to do it anyway. Don’t you think?

 

Reiki is Love. Can we really get too much of it?

 

With all my heart and soul,

Alice

lotus The Temple of You

Stack the elements of yourself with a sure mind, using great delicacy and balance, from the robust foundation on up toward the sky.

 

Offer all of yourself to the universe as a stable and elegant structure ready to hold any truth without crumbling.

 

Be ready to share the home of you as refuge to any who need your shelter.

 

Be a temple of strength and compassion.

 

Ring the bell in the tower of you to share the vibration of true nature with any who might overhear it and open their ears and souls to the sound.

 

And shine the light from the top of the lighthouse that is your being as a beacon showing all beings the way home.

 

This is what we build with the system of Reiki, laboring joyfully, even playfully, with gentle openness and perseverance, day by day, brick by brick.

 

We build ourselves in service to ourselves. We build ourselves in service to all. And we know there is no difference.

 

May each of you find shelter when you need refuge. And may you take the steps to build yourself into the robust and beautiful temple that is your true nature revealed.

 

Warmly,

Alice

lotus Isn’t Reiki a Bit Out There?

Reiki Pulse’s Latest Flyer About Reiki: Click on Image to View a Larger Version

When people first encounter Reiki, maybe from a friend or a website or flyer, they often can’t wrap their minds around it. It seems a little cuckoo. A little “out there.”

 

It doesn’t help that different Reiki practitioners and schools have different approaches, some of which are somewhat removed from the Japanese origins of the practice.

 

When you take the system of Reiki back as much as possible to its Japanese roots, it’s really not that “out there.” The system of Reiki is a simple meditation and healing practice, no more cuckoo than sister practices from other traditions such as yoga or qigong.

 

The system of Reiki sometimes seems “out there” because it is hard to describe.

 

By its very nature, any spiritual practice is hard to encapsulate in words. These are mystery practices.

 

Engaging directly with the mystery – of life, existence, and what lies beyond existence as we know it – is so worthwhile. But we have to let our brains step out of the driver’s seat to truly explore.

 

So in Reiki, understanding is not necessarily the same as intellectually knowing.

 

Words are fantastic tools for exploration. Our brains are excellent protectors, creative drivers, and life navigators. I don’t advocate abandoning language or intellect. But words can be limiting.

 

It’s true that understanding without words can make us uneasy, since we are so used to being able to place our experiences in nice, neat idea boxes with labels carefully pasted on the outside.

 

But understanding without words is also powerful, without those boxes keeping things contained.

 

Understanding without words is limitless.

 

Do you want to be limited or limitless? There are many right answers, as in any spiritual inquiry. What are yours? Your answers are colored by your own experiences and might be nuanced and even contradictory. Please share your thoughts below if this post sparked something in you.

 

May each of you embrace words for all they offer you. And may you also settle under those words and engage directly with the mystery of being.

 

Warmly,
Alice

Ps. The irony is not lost on me that I have used so many words to explore this concept! You have to start somewhere.
