What is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing energy made up of life force that is guided by Higher Intelligence, or spiritually guided life force energy. Rei stands for universal energy coming from the Higher Power, and Ki stands for life force that animates anything. Reiki cannot be guided by mind as bio-energy can in distant healing.

In energetics, the main cause of illness is disruption in the flow of energy. Accordingly to Reiki practitioners, Reiki knows exactly where to go and how to respond to restrictions in the flow of Ki energy. To send Reiki, intention, compassion and open heart are important atributes of a Reiki practitioner. At first, an attunement is required for opening of one's energy channel.

What Reiki is sent for is the best possible outcome. The wisdom of Reiki knows what is best for the person and act accordingly. However, it cannot be used to control people, situations, or behaviours.

We live in a world of energy, and Reiki helps you to tap into that and learn to read it and work with it. In the world of energy there is no such thing as time or space so a Reiki healing can be done at a close or any distance. There is a lot of modalities of energy work such as the energy healing, bio-energy healing, healing touch, therapeutic touch, and distant healing to name a few. Reiki is about channeling energy. Reiki as any energy work can be applied to anything made of energy, anything in existence.

A Reiki healing is very simply performed. The Reiki master claims that he or she is able to draw upon the energy of the universe and increase his or her own energy while performing healing. Along with channeling energy, the Reiki practitioner uses special hands positions. If the healing fails, however, it is because the healee is resisting the healing energy.

Reiki was popularized by Mikao Usui (1802-1883). After fasting and meditations for several weeks, he began hallucinating and hearing voices giving him "the keys to healing."
