This book was the recommended at the end of my Reiki I Class. I did not read it until I was well into Reiki II, but wish I would have read it right away! This book explains in detail many of the experiences the new healer goes through, what to expect during the detox, mutiple explanations of the sensations that may be felt during the healing, information about emotional release and how to handle it, and so much more! As I got out and worked with the energy, I started experiencing sensations and other things I had never experienced before and had to just wonder about them until I had time to contact my instructor. If I had read this book beforehand, I would have known just what to expect and realized that my experiences really weren’t unusual and just a part of growing with Reiki.
The book instructs you all the way from Reiki I through Reiki III, explaining the hand positions for self-healing, healing others, and all of the symbols. She takes you step by step through a healing session, even explaining what you might expect from the healee as the session is in the works. All of this info is an excellent reinforcement for items covered during personal training sessions or workshops, but are often forgotten after class is over.
Diane Stein also abreaks away from Traditional Reiki training standards and explains situations such as emotional release, karma, and spirit attachment and their relationship to Reiki treatment. She also explains the relationship between the Reiki symbols and Buddhist enlightenment. All of this, and much more to guide the Reiki student or new healer on the path to Reiki Master.
From the book:
Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of “laying on of hands” healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time.
Teaching from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice.
While no book can replace the directly received Reiki “attunements,” ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs.
