Reiki is Universal Life Energy. Reiki, (pronounced "ray-key"), is actually two Japanese words: "Rei" means universal life and "ki" means energy. Ki is the same as "Chi" in Chinese, "Prana" in Sanskrit and "Mana" in Hawaiian. When activated, Reiki addresses body, mind and spirit by accelerating one's ability to heal one's self. The body is reminded of its ability to heal physical ailments, the mind opened to the causes of disease, and the spirit to the opportunity of taking responsibility for one's life and the joys of balanced wellness.
This hands-on healing modality is an ancient art now being revived around the world. Energy channeling through the hands was rediscovered by a Christian scholar, Dr. Mikao Usui, in Japan in the late 19th century after many years of researching the healing ministries of great healers, including Jesus and the Buddha. Reiki (literal translation - soul power), as laid down by Dr. Usui, has a simple set of procedures to follow. These procedures were passed down to each of the Reiki Masters who follow his teachings, together with a simple set of Reiki ideals. Historically, the teaching of this oral tradition is passed on from Reiki Master to student during Reiki training.
Very much like Usui Reiki, we are tapping into universal life force energy, with the assistance of the Angelic Kingdom of Light. The process is slightly different than a regular reiki session in that the practitioner is communicating with the Angelic Kindgom and higher dimensions to channel the healing energy. The session usually feels much different compared to an Usui reiki session and even more powerful. The energy comes through with various messages and insights that can benefit the client's healing and spiritual growth. These insights are usually passed from the practitioner but if the client is sensitive, they may even pick up on the messages throughout the session.
