Reiki is a wonderful healing art, and in all of its varieties seems to work well enough, at least for hands-on healing. But Reiki, which was originally intended to be a self-development system that secondarily promotes healing, needs to evolve. Over the past century, Reiki has become bloated and overcomplicated with zillions of symbols, complicated procedures and systems of hand positions, ridiculously high fees, organizational politics and intrigues, unverifiable fairy tales, mumbo-jumbo and outright nonsense about its origins, and enough principles and rules to shame a religion. Enter Danish musician and Reiki Tummo student Ole Gabrielsen. Ole developed Kundalini Reiki and changed this healing and self-development art forever.
What is Reiki?
Reiki roughly means “Universal Life Energy”. You gain access to Reiki via “attunement”. During attunement, different energy centers (chakras) and channels are opened/strengthened. This way you can have access to this energy and channel it through your hands, etc. You can then “switch on” the energy, just by intention. Reiki can also be used on animals, plants, water, etc. Furthermore, it is possible to accelerate your personal development process drastically by opening the Kundalini.
What is Kundalini?
Basically, Kundalini means that certain healing channels and chakras have been opened, and you have thereby gained access to the Earth’s energy. The root chakra, which is the energy center near the coccyx, acts as an entrance for the Kundalini energy. The Kundalini energy is also referred to as “the Kundalini Fire”. Hereafter, the energy runs all the way up through the body, through the “main energy channel”, and out of the Crown chakra.
This energy channel goes from the Root chakra to the Crown chakra on the top of the head. An open Kundalini means that over a period of time, a complete cleansing of the chakras, the body parts and the energy channels is obtained.
Traditional paths to Kundalini awakening are fraught with danger and difficulty. A person who is having, or has had problems with wrong Kundalini awakening, or other problems with the Kundalini energy, can most often be helped by the Kundalini Reiki attunements.
What is Kundalini Reiki?
So how does Kundalini Reiki differ from traditional Reiki?
Unlike most other Reiki, Kundalini Reiki uses both Reiki energy and Kundalini (Earth) energy. The Kundalini greatly strengthens the Reiki, and the Reiki “tempers” the Kundalini, making it perfectly safe to use.
Kundalini Reiki uses no symbols and no complicated system of set hand positions. Starting the energy flow is achieved by intent.
Kundalini Reiki is passed on to the student in three levels, each of which modifies the bodies energy system significantly. With the second level a daily Kundalini Reiki Meditation (sort of a mini Kundalini raising) is taught to the student, and in level three a number of special energies (DNA Reiki, Birth Trauma Reiki, etc.) are imparted, intended to heal certain energy conditions that most people suffer from to some degree.
Kundalini Reiki basically comes in two “flavors”, a basic or “lite” (I call it “Classic”) version which is often taught for free or around $10, and a newer generation version with a much more stable and powerful attunement process and a simplified system of levels. This much improved version is usually taught for $75 to $150 online, and much more in a live teaching situation.
At my website Kundalini Reiki Center (http://www.kundalinireiki.net), I offer the advanced version of Kundalini Reiki (including 3 Booster Empowerments) for $75, and as a bonus, I throw in Purple Reiki (an excellent energy for clearing blockages) as sort of a fourth level.
