Shinpiden Reiki level III in Corsham, Wiltshire
The Five Elements in Relation to Shinpiden
Shinpiden means ‘mystery teachings’ and is the third and final level of the system of Reiki. This does not indicate that practice stops here. Shinpiden is, in fact, just the beginning of your life-long study. Shinpiden focuses on personal development and teaches students the final details of the elements of the system of Reiki. This is how the five elements are practised at the Shinpiden level:
1. Developing Spiritual and Mental Focus
Emphasis is placed once again on developing the spiritual and mental connection using the five precepts and creating a consistent practice.
2. Techniques and Meditations
Shinpiden includes additional traditional techniques and meditations
3. Hands-on Healing
The physical practice on the self continues. Shinpiden embodies the understanding that hands-on healing is more than a physical practice.
4. Mantras and Symbols
One mantra and symbol are taught along with their descriptions and uses. Students gain a deeper understanding of the mantras and symbols from Okuden and their relationship to Shinpiden.
5. Reiju / Attunements
One Reiju / attunement takes the student’s energetic connection a step further. Students learn how to perform Reiju / attunements for Levels I, II and III.
Once Shinpiden is completed, all aspects of the system of Reiki become an integral part of the student’s life. Some say that this is where life and the system of Reiki merge with students unable to tell the difference between the two.
Instead of thinking of Reiki as a lifetime practice we now know that life is our Reiki practice.
Students who wish to teach the system of Reiki will most importantly need to further their own personal practice before beginning to teach. Guidance on how to teach the elements involved will be taught on the Shinpiden Course.
