Today, we are going to be talking about what is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of energy healing that is deeply relaxing and promotes the healing or the mind, body, and spirit. What does that mean?

The best way to understand Reiki is to breakdown the Japanese Kanji or Reiki symbol. Rei means spiritual wisdom. This is beyond our ego, beyond our personality. It is tapping into this unlimited source of Divine Universal Love and Wisdom, God, or whatever you want to call source. It is tapping into this unlimited source of Love.

And then there is Ki, Ki is energy, Life energy. Everything in this world is made up of energy and in different cultures and languages it is called different things. In Chinese, they call it Chi, while in Sanskrit they call it Prana, and in Reiki we call it Ki. We work with enhancing our body’s Ki because when our Ki is high, we feel vibrant, we feel full of life, and we are less susceptible to disease. When our Ki is low, we are lazy, lethargic, and more susceptible to disease. We want to enhance our body’s Ki. By enhancing our body’s Ki, we are enhancing our natural ability to heal.

Reiki practitioners work with Ki and when a Reiki practitioner is giving you Reiki, they are setting their ego and personality aside and letting that Divine Wisdom or the Rei part guide where the Ki is needed for your best and highest good. The Reiki practitioner does not direct the Ki. The Spiritual Wisdom does. Reiki is a Japanese healing technique done by the “laying on of hands” either very light or no touch.
