Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a Japanese
healing art that was synthesized into being by Mikao Usui in the late
1800's and is one of the more widely known forms of energy healing.
Since the word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy,
it (strictly speaking) refers to the energy and not the specific
techniques taught by Reiki Masters.
is a Japanese word for the concept: "Universal Life Energy". Reiki's
initial stages can be learned by anyone regardless of their personal
philosophy and/or spiritual belief system. Through the initiations of
Reiki comes a "re-awakening", a re-opening of the life force (the light)
that is within us.
In Reiki, the energy flows
into us ,and then we act as a vehicle through which this energy can be
directed onto another individual from our hands. It
becomes natural to touch someone and allow this healing energy to flow,
when someone is in pain, and to help in relieving this pain. A Reiki
treatment restores balance and harmony to the whole person, bringing about
a sense of wellness.
