What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction, relaxation, and healing. This can help with anxiety and depression.  Life force energy flows through all of us.  If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is born of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy.” So, Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A treatment feels like a warm glowing radiance that flows through one’s body. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing. 

Reiki is a natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.  Reiki also works in conjunction with many other medical or therapeutic techniques to reduce side effects and promote recovery.

Reiki is not taught in the usual sense but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki Master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and help others.

Reiki may be spiritual in nature, but it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. 

During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Reiki ideals to the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five principles of the Meiji Emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired. The ideals were added spiritual balance Usui Reiki. Their purpose is to help the world realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing. Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy. It is more successful if an active commitment to improve oneself is recognized.
