Reiki is a form of alternative therapy, commonly referred to as energy healing. Reiki has been around for thousands of years. The most commonly used and well known is the Usui Reiki system that emerged in Japan in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui.
The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) is a Japanese word which means Universal Life Force Energy. The kanji (Japanese alphabet) definition of “Rei” means universal, from God, or unlimited and “ki” is the life force energy which flows through all living things. “Ki” is the same as “chi” in Chinese, or “prana” in Sanskrit it is the universal life force that emanates from every living thing.
To put it simply Rei- Universal Ki- Life Force Energy
Reiki- To balance Universal Life Force Energy.
Reiki involves the laying of hands above or on the body. The Reiki practitioner who’s channels have been opened to receiving the life fore energy in greater amounts channels the energy and targets the energy fields and chakras around the body. As Reiki has its own intelligence it is able to assist the areas that are in need of this vital life force energy.
Energy can become blocked in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. If the life force is low, or there is a blockage of life force within the body, then we are more prone to illness or lowered resistance. Reiki helps to restore the flow of energy and remove these blocks within the body, allowing us to balance and restore our personal frequency by releasing what no longer serves us.
When our energy bodies are aligned and flowing this has an overall benefit to our spiritual, emotional and physical wellbeing.
