Reiki comes from two Japanese words: “rei” meaning God’s intelligence that guides the universe and “ki” meaning the life-force energy through everything that is alive. The combination of the two words translates to a spiritually guided life-force energy.
Reiki is used to help with stress, trauma, unrest, anxiety, depression, physical pain, and more. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit.
Reiki promotes calm and inner peace much like meditation or mindfulness techniques. However, Reiki is administered by practitioner by either laying hands on a person’s energy centers; hovering hands over those energy centers; or even distance Reiki by beaming or visualizing the energy to the individual.
The idea of Reiki is that all living things have energy and vibrations through them and sometimes we need our higher spiritual guide to help realign and create peace within us. The Reiki practitioner is used as a conduit to help channel God’s energy to the main energy centers found all over your body.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe to receive Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief and will work whether you believe in it or not; you just need to be willing.
