Reiki is a Japanese enlightenment and healing system. It allows you to heal self and others by laying-on hands. It was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 1900’s. Reiki is very easy to learn and easy to use, and anyone can do it. Reiki Healing is a process of being connected to the Reiki Energy through an attunement or empowerment. Using Reiki is simply a matter of awareness of Reiki and the expression of it is BEing Reiki. Healing is done either by laying hands-on, or by distance work.
Reiki is pronounced “ray-key”. The word “Reiki” is made up of two separate kanji, or syllables: “Rei”, which means Universal and “Ki” which is spirit, energy or life force. The most common definition of Reiki is therefore “universal life energy”. Some say that it is life force energy that animates all life. This universal life energy is indescribable, in all things, everywhere. In doing and being Reiki our awareness of it in the moment is the expression of Reiki in healing, being, in whatever we are doing in that moment. — Usui Shiki Ryoho
I feel that everyone should have the experience of Reiki as it is a deeply relaxing body/energy work that heals from the inside out. I most always use crystals with Reiki as it enhances the energy and healing experience.
