REIKI DANCING IS MY PASSION!
Enhancing Belly Dancing with Reiki
As a certified Reiki Master
Teacher, and Belly Dancer, I wanted to combine my two passions,
the ancient dance art that honors women as the creator of life,
with the ancient healing art. My experience has shown that Reiki
enhances my belly dancing performance skills. Reiki helps to protect
me from picking up negative energies or vibrations from the people
I work with or audience members I perform for. Reiki is a simple,
natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement
that works on all levels, including the body, emotions, mind and
spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation
and feelings of peace, joy, love, upliftment, beauty, balance and
harmony for the both the practitioner and the audience. Not to mention
helping to prevent stage fright. The main focus of Reiki is to help
others. While I belly dance I visualize the sacred healing symbol
to access the Universal Life Force Healing Energy. The sacred Reiki
symbols are revealed to the second degree Reiki practitioner who
has been empowered by attunements, and must be kept confidential.
Once a person has been opened up to becoming a "channel" for
Reiki, concentrated Life Energy will flow through the hands. Reiki
is holistic in effect.
Reiki was recovered by the Japanese as a technique for stress reduction and
relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe
method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. The
word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words from the Japanese Kanji and means "Spiritually
guided life force energy." "Rei" - which means Universal-present
everywhere. "The Higher Power"
"Ki" - Which is the life force"Life Force Energy" and is
the same as "Chi" in Chinese, "Prana" in Sanskrit, "Holy
Ghost" of the Christians, "Mana" in Hawaiian and "Ka" of
the Egyptians. "Ki" is used by martial artist in their physical training
and mental development, Shamans of all cultures access this Ki energy for divination,
psychic awareness, and healing.
the History of Reiki.
Throughout the history of mankind healing methods have existed. The knowledge
of Reiki would have remained lost forever had not Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered
the key, which led to the recovery of a thousand-year-old tradition of healing
in 2,500-year-old Sanskrit Sutras. At the end of the 19th century, Dr. Mikao
Usui was responsible
for its revival. The story of Dr. Usui's search for this secret knowledge has
been told by Grand Master Hawayo Takata(1900-1980) along the following lines.
While in Japan, Dr Usui, a doctor of Theology discovered some Sanskrit formulas
and symbols in old Bhuddist Sutras about hands-on-healing methods. After a
21 day fast and meditation on Mt. Kurama he was enlightened to the Usui System
of Reiki healing. He opened a clinic and gave treatments to countless patients.
Dr Usui spent the rest of his life teaching Reiki.
Is the purpose of creation
And we are all here
To enjoy and radiate happiness everywhere."
