What is Reiki?
Let me familiarize you with Reiki (pronounced ray-key), it is a Japanese word that means Universal Life Force Energy. Rei means higher intelligence that guides the creation functioning of the universe. Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. This is found all around us. Reiki is believed to have been associated with Mikao Usui who is credited with rediscovering the root system which is called Reiki. His traditions and methods were passed through several grand-masters of Reiki. A Reiki Practitioner is someone who has been attuned to these energies and has been taught how to channel them. The Practitioner is not the source of the healing, the channeled Reiki energy is the source of the healing. There is a balance with the Reiki energy and the client’s willingness to heal that decides (consciously or subconsciously) what level of healing happens in a session. Reiki is an intelligent energy that knows where to go in the body and can sense the exact right amount of energy to facilitate healing within us. Reiki works to help heal us on our emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. It harmonizes and balances our bodies so that we can feel calm, relaxed, comforted, and de-stressed. There are no spiritual beliefs that you need to hold for Reiki to work. It is not a religion. Energy doesn’t care what religion you are or aren’t. It does not discriminate. Purely its energy. All you need is a willingness to be open to receive it.
