“Rei” is Japanese for spiritual, sacred, “Holy Spirit” or “Higher Power/Intelligence”. “Rei” is the Higher Intelligence that oversees the creation of everything in the Universe. “Rei” is a gentle wisdom that passes through everything, from the creation of Universes to the development of your life. “Rei” provides guidance and assistance on all levels of life. “Rei” has also been called “God” and depending on your culture, can be associated with many different names.
“Ki” is Japanese for unseen energy or “Life-force Energy”. “Ki” is also known as “Prana”, “Qi” or “Chi”. “Ki” is the non-physical energy force that moves and flows through everything that is alive. When your “Ki” is high, you will feel healthy, self-confident and take pleasure in life. When “Ki” is low, you many feel sluggish, tired, drained or exhausted. When we breath, eat, sleep and absorb sunlight, we are receiving “Ki”. Certain breathing techniques and meditations help to channel more “Ki” in and out of our bodies. When we die, our “Ki” leaves our physical body.
Reiki translates as Spiritually Guided Life-Force Energy. It is a natural and safe energy healing technique that promotes stress reduction, relaxation, the ability for your body to naturally heal itself.
Reiki is drawn by intent (both conscious and unconscious intent) through the Reiki practitioner (who acts as a channel of Universal Life Force energy) according to the needs of the recipient of the energy. Reiki always heals for the best and highest good of the recipient, the practitioner, and the Universe. Reiki heals on all levels-Spiritual, mental, physical and emotional, etc., as well as other levels which we are unaware of consciously. Reiki healing is unique in that the practitioner is never drained by the healing experience because the practitioner is not using their own energy.
It is said that Reiki was rediscovered by Mikao Usiu in March 1922. Since its rediscovery , it has been passed from Reiki Master to student. Energy healing techniques, like Reiki, have been practiced since the beginning of time.
You can access the healing power of Reiki through an energy healing session or an attunement (remembering, reintroduction and reconnection to the energy).
Reiki has a wide range of benefits that range from healing physical pain, providing guidance and clarity as well as helping you move to a higher level of consciousness.
There are many different kinds of Reiki energy. Kundalini, Gold and Lightarian Reiki are just a few of the many different forms of reiki energy you can reconnect to. You can also align and work with the energy of crystals, planets, plants and so much more through Reiki.
