Unequivocal commitment to pursue what is more than Self.

Kabbalah, Reiki, and Energy

What is kabbalah reiki? Though it is not directly native to kabbalah, reiki is the practice of healing with spiritual energy built upon the same principles. The use of reiki was developed and named in 1922 by Mikao Usui, with “rei ki” being the basic words meaning “spiritual energy”.

Within kabbalah, reiki is essentially the same universal kabbalah energy recognized as the source of kabbalistic healing miracles. Although kabbalah reiki teaching is not accredited or scientifically demonstrated, it is a useful practice to grow into, provided one avoids strife.

Mikao Usui’s fivefold code could indeed be taken as a statement of universal kabbalah: “Do not be angry, do not worry, be grateful, work with integrity, be kind to others.”

Kabbalistic Healings

While it is hard to come by clear-cut evidence that kabbalah reiki directly causes healings (at greater rates than the placebo effect) since it has come to be called kabbalah reiki, there is sufficient tradition evidence that it has contributed to many healings before Mikao Usui developed what is kabbalah reiki today.

The Tanakh and Talmud repeatedly describe healings brought about by physical contact, including the extended case of full body-to-body contact. In Tractate Bava Batra it is recorded that the spittle of the firstborn son of his father has healing powers, particularly for ailments of the eye; this results from the kabbalistic combination of the covenant relationship of the firstborn, the vital sharing of bodily fluid, the contact with the hands, and the trust that God is pleased to heal.

The Source of Spiritual Energy

Physicists have lately found the universal energy in the form known as “zero-point energy”, which literally holds all parts of the cosmos together. They have proven scientifically that it is many times stronger than what we typically think of as energy, which merely adjusts parts of the cosmos from one state to another. Universal energy is generally discounted because there is no known natural way to extract it: its extraction is supernatural.

Most miracles are not displays of great physical power but displays of great order. Universal energy, many times more powerful than the largest supernova, refuses to budge from its hidden position of continuing to establish the cosmos, unless it works through a highly ordered soul. This is because, being rei ki, this energy or spirit is the first manifestation or sefirah of God, omnipresent and all-sufficient. Thus the lifetime process of ordering one’s soul through kabbalah disciplines is commended.
