What is Reiki?
Reiki pronounced ray-key and is defined as life force energy. It is the practice of working with your energy field, to strengthen any weak areas, balance and activates the life force energy that is within everyone and all things in the universe. During a Reiki session there is no physical manipulation, as it works on an energetic level, nor does it use the practitioner’s energy. Reiki is “laying on of hands” technique where energy is channeled through the Reiki practitioner to the client, working on all levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It is a gentle holistic method that complements traditional medicine.
The word “Rei” as it is used in Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God, God-Consciousness. It understands each person. Rei knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows how to heal them.
The word “Ki” means life energy, also known as vital life energy or universal life force energy. Life energy plays a role in everything we do. It animates the body and has higher levels of expression. Ki is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life. If your energy is low or if there is a restriction in its flow, you are more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick.
It is the God-Consciousness called Rei that guides the life force energy called Ki in the practice we call Reiki. Reiki guides itself with its own wisdom, rather than requiring the direction of the practitioner. Reiki can be defined as; “Spiritual guided life forces energy.”
