Reiki is a method of drawing concentrated life force energy and radiating it. Reiki (pronounced ray-key), is a Japanese word made up of two syllables: Rei & Ki

Rei  – Spiritual wisdom, mysterious power, essence. 

Ki –  (Chi in Chinese) Vital life force, light. 

Previously these 2 kanji have been translated as “Universal Energy” in the West. This is a translation of the 2nd Kanji “ki” only. “ki” is the energy of everything including heaven, earth and the universe. 

It is essentially a system of healing that transforms and heals the body, mind and soul. It represents a matrix of non-dualistic energy that permeates all things.  Reiki reaches all levels of existence and strives to bring these differing levels into balance.

To help you picture it, think of a free flowing river. This beautiful river is like energy flowing easily down through the body. Occasionally a pebble, or a rock, will fall into that river making the flow of water a little more difficult. These pebbles are human worries, fears, anger etc, and each pebble builds on top of each other. Eventually there is only a trickle of water running in that once beautiful free-flowing river. 

It is the same with energy in the human body. 

During Reiki, the pure flow of energy is re-aligned within the body. It washes down, clearing obstructions and strengthening the flow of energy. This signifies a connection to the understanding of one’s purpose on earth and the easiest, most successful way of achieving it. 

Reiki is the spiritual medicine for all illness!
