What is Reiki?
Reiki means "Universal Life Energy", and is made up of two Japanese characters "Rei" and "ki". "Rei" means both universal, in the sense of everywhere, and also spiritual wisdom, and "ki" means the same as prana or chi, i.e. the vital life force within every living thing. It can be said to be "spiritually guided life force energy". It creates and sustains everything in existence and can be used to transform and re-create. All healers use chi or energy from the universal energy field, Reiki is but one way of accessing this energy directly. This way of accessing the energy requires a personal activation known as an attunement by a Reiki Master. Reiki cannot be accessed from reading a book or over the internet!
Why is Reiki Special?
Reiki does not have the monopoly on "universal life energy" in fact it has many aspects in common with other healing methods such as Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Shiatsu, Do-in, Kiatsu, Huna, Jin Shin Acupressure, Shen Do, Acupuncture etc. All these methods involve manipulation of energy in the energy centres and energy channels. The difference with Reiki is that the person receiving the energy draws it from the universe via the Reiki practitioner or channel. It is not manipulated by the practitioner. In Reiki, the energy is drawn by the healee when ever 'Reiki hands' are placed on the body or in the energy field. Energy flows through the practitioner and is not of the practitioner.
