So i have been studying up on Reiki lately and have been really curious as to how this system works. What is it exactly i understand that it is a form of energy that is not like normal energy (if that makes sense). I really want to start practicing this healing form mostly for personal use. But i thought if i started practicing and eventually was able to really start to channel the energy that i could practice on others or even just my animals and plants.

Another thing is how would i get started every thing that i read it seems to be that you have to have a teacher to attune you to opening up and accepting reiki. But i do not have any money at all and being a unemployed college kid i can't afford to take a class (IMG:style_emoticons/default/06.gif) . Is there anyway that one can open themselves up to reiki on there own maybe some methods or advise.

Another thing i know most here will laugh at asking this question i have never really studied chakras much ( i know i should) I plain to btw. I just need some information maybe some good books to really get a rundown on them i have always been into different occult meditation and a number of other things. But i never really focused upon one thing in particular just studied a whole whole lot over the past few years practiced but not diligently. Mainly because i was in high school graduated moved in with friends stop practicing yada yada don't wanna bore anyone lol. But i have really been feeling the need to practice and focus more upon a certain aspect of energy and beginning Reiki as i would one day like to open up a practice of my own. Although i do not foresee this anytime soon but one day would be nice. I really want to start doing Reiki and learning the history methods practices everything so that i can for now practice on myself plants animals eventually others once i understand it well enough that i feel comfortable in doing so. I know that chakras are very important i have studied a bit on them i know the main ones and there functions. But that is as far as my knowledge really goes with them.

I have done energy work as far as creating psi balls and have had really good success with them. My visualization has improved tremendously over the past few years from where i first began. I can meditate for around 30 minutes at the moment and that is good for me since i got out of the practice for so long. I know some of the more experienced members here can meditate for hours on end. This is all i can think of at the moment that i just need some advice on i hoe i do not bother anyone here asking so many questions all the time. I just find this forum and it's members are the most educated people i have found throughout the years. And always enjoy reading the intelligent responses i get from them.

P.S. Sorry for my spelling/grammar i was never good at this but taking a class this fall so ill be working on it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dumbells.gif) .

Reiki is just one brand name packaged form of energy work and has been dumbed down a lot to fit into the New Age workshop culture. I do have my reiki 3 though so if you want I can do a distant attunement. Just PM me to work out details.

I don't think that chakras are especially important. I see the meridians as far more important. But rather than just focusing on chakras or one or two chakras (which I have seen people do) it would be better to work with the whole system including the chakras, the aura and the meridian. I've been collecting ebooks on energy work, primarily books on CHinese Qigong. You can probably find Mantak Chia's books online or in the bookstores. I also like Bruce Kumar Frantzis and his books. There are a lot more books on the market about energy work than when I began back in the '80s. Many are not very informative or are boring to read but there are some good ones out there. I think I posted a link on free ebook sites that have some of the better book-- as well as some of the less good ones. The B.K. Frantzis books aren't available for free online though so you might try your local library or buy some. You might do best to study with a teacher eventually though.

Yes i would be very interested in a attunement that would be great it's hard to find some one who doesnt want to charge a hefty price so much appreciation. I basically am wanting to use practice so i can have it for use on myself, plants and stuff. i will PM you.

Thank you for the books i have a pretty good website where i can find all my books you might find it pretty good as well if you do not already have it Ebook Site I have been doing some more research recently on them just to better familiarize myself with them. I would love to be able to actually have a teacher unfortunately i live pretty far from anything really up In the hills of Kentucky. Once i find a job and can get me a place more in the city i would most defiantly like to find a suitable teacher just be ice to have guidance rather than just practicing solo.

Getting into Reiki myself, found its a good way in to chi kung, at least in the way I was fortunate enough to be taught it. Making a 'psy ball' feeling the energy around oneself and paying attention to how it moves and so on. Agree wholly that its become a new agey thing and I'd seriously doubt the abilities of many who've been "attuned" .lol. Recalled a passage at the end of the Cieros book on the G.Dawn, perhaps it was Regardie... saying to avoid attempting to heal others, this AFTER having passed though the elemental grades, much work has to be done on oneself before aiding in the lives of others in that way but yeah... is an interesting path, noted that the teacher (here in london) had a way of conecting with people that all the yogis and other practitioners he was around just didn't. Speaks well for it as a practice in that regard.

A good collection you have there Grim, thanks for the link.

Peace
M
