A generally accepted meaning of the word Reiki is ‘Universal Life Force Energy’. Another interpretation is derived from a translation of Mikao Usui’s memorial stone in Japan as ‘A method that came into being through a moment of enlightenment.’
Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926) is the founder of the system of Reiki that we know today. Reiki is a system of hands-on healing where the practitioner administers healing energy (via the hands) to another. Reiki is an invisible, gentle energy. It balances our energy system and promotes the body’s natural ability to heal on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
It supports personal and spiritual development and provides a gentle opportunity to heal and expand – a simple and effective technique that can be used to promote a harmonious and well-balanced life style.
Reiki is simple and safe, suitable for anyone interested in healing, personal development and meditation. Reiki will complement alternative practices or belief systems.
Rei ~ spiritual / soul Ki ~ the energy of the universe.
