Characteristics of Reiki - Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei
*Once you are initiated into Reiki, Reiki healing ability will be all yours for the rest of your life.
*No specific training and experience necessary.
*Reiki energy will flow of its own accord (You cannot direct or manipulate it).
*No conscious focusing (a mind concentration) is necessary.
*A Reiki practitioner is not in danger of taking on other's negative stuff (energies).
*Reiki is a very compatible with other modalities of healing.
*Reiki can work on all beings (humans, animals and plants), and works on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
*Reiki is not a belief system (religion) at all.
*Reiki, the love, harmony and power to heal of the universe, does help and guide you to develop your spiritual growth, for Reiki Ryoho is a spiritual path and practice.
*It is REIKI that does a fine job of healing, not you. (You, as a Reiki practitioner do not do any healing, but you are very essential for Reiki healing. Without you, Reiki cannot work.)
*The farther from the ego, the purer the Reiki channel will be.
