Reiki teacher Simo Ollila

Hello, I'm Simo Ollila, welcome to my homepage! I´m a Reiki teacher living in Finland, Northern Europe. Most of the material in my site is in my native language Finnish. But since I noticed that people from all over the world are visiting my site, I thought that it would be nice to include some stuff in English as well. By the way, the domain name reikikurssit.fi means reikiseminars.fi in English.

Reiki

Like the internet, Reiki knows no borders. Reiki energy is just the same all over the world, giving healing and consolation to all people who are willing to let it into their lives. This healing method, founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in the beginning of 1920s in Japan, is known and practiced by tens of millions of people in every continent. This makes Reiki one of the most well-known methods of complementary medicine in the world.

All this is a dream come true of Dr. Usui. In an interview made in the 1920s he said: "It is an old custom to teach the method to only my descendant for keeping a wealth within a family. Especially the modern societies we live in, wish to share happiness of co-existence and co-prosperity (...) My Usui Reiki Ryoho (Usui method of natural healing) is an original, it's nothing like this in the world. So I would like to release this method to the public for everyone's benefit and hope for everyone's happiness".* And God knows, that we need Reiki now more than ever...

Apart of being just a complementary healing method, Reiki can also be seen and experienced as a spiritual path. It is enhancing our spiritual growth by connecting us to the energy, which is healing our souls and helping us to live our lives more lovingly. It helps us to contribute to the people near us, because it makes us aware that there is really no separation between the well-being of ourselves and the well-being of others. When we are healing ourselves we are, at the same time, also healing the whole world.

One of the unique features of Reiki method is that it is so easy to connect with. You only need to take part in a weekend Reiki seminar, and after that you can enjoy Reiki and share it´s healing power with the people near you - for the rest of your life. You don´t have to study or struggle for years to achieve the benefits of Reiki, the only thing you have to do is to use it.

So Reiki is like receiving a gift, or more like reconnecting to the gift we were born with. But in order to really connect with Reiki, you have to attend a seminar given by a qualified Reiki teacher. You can´t achieve Reiki just by reading a book or by staring a picture in the internet.
