 What is Reiki

The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words - Rei which means ‘God's Wisdom or the Higher Power’ and Ki which is ‘life force energy’. So Reiki means ‘spiritually guided life force energy’ or as many prefer to call it ‘spiritual energy’ Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, and not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.

Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki putsthem more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it. Students are asked nothing more than to
remain open minded. Reiki was rediscovered in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, that has since been
adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing as a form of complementary medicine. He recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

At the deepest level of a hands-on healing session on others, there is
no practitioner giving anything, no client receiving anything, and
there is also nothing to give.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use and benefit from. It has been effective in helping virtually all known illness. It can be used alongside conventional
medicine or even with other complementary therapies. Because many Reiki therapists / healers will not touch the body of the client it can also be used on areas such as burns to speed up the healing process of the body. A treatment covers the entire body and the healer will work over each of the bodies chakras as well as areas of pain and discomfort, sometimes by way of intuition. Most clients will experience a warm glowing radiance that flows through and around the body. Reiki treats the whole person including mind, body, and spirit which includes our emotions, and creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation, lowering stress levels and feelings of calm, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Because it comes from God or the creator the energy is intuitive in that it knows exactly where to go.

There is a video below which shows a typical Reiki session being carried out.
