What is Reiki?

In the West, Reiki is practised very much like an oriental version of spiritual healing and is based on the practitioner channelling universal energy or spiritual energy, the energy which is all around us. This energy can be referred to as 'chi' and the Japanese adopted the Chinese view of the body's energy system.

Moving from China to India this energy is referred to as 'prana' and breathing exercises and yoga techniques have been developed over centuries to help bring a person's energy system into balance. The Indian culture also believes that there are seven energy centres running the length of a body from the crown of your head to the base of your spine.

All these energy techniques can be utilised to help harmonise a person's energy system, putting your body in the best possible position to heal itself on all levels: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Reiki deals with this same energy, however a Reiki practitioner is not just dealing with a cold and clinical energy, the same energy that is manipulated by acupuncturists or controlled by practitioners of yoga or tai chi.

When Reiki is channelled it is a beautiful energy from divine origins and this energy can be interpreted as divine love or divine light. Reiki reinforces an individual's connection to your deity but it is not attached to any religion or belief system, so it doesn't conflict with an individual's beliefs, or lack of beliefs.

Reiki is therefore acceptable to atheists and believers alike, agnostics, Catholics, Muslims and Pagans alike. It is a beautiful, relaxing energy that helps on all levels.

The Reiki Principles:

The secret art of inviting happiness,
The miraculous medicine of all diseases.

Do not anger,

Do not worry,

Be humble,

Be honest in your dealings with other people,

Be compassionate towards yourself and others.

About Reiki. reikisymbol.jpg

The Reiki Symbol

The Japanese characters that make up the word 'Reiki' are usually translated in the West as meaning 'Universal Life Energy', but the characters can be translated as meaning 'soul energy' or 'aura' or 'mysterious spirit', or even 'spiritually guided life force energy'.

Therefore Reiki is not just a cold and clinical energy that can be moved around the body by sticking needles into a person (as an acupuncturist does), it is an energy that has a definite connection to or resonance with a person's soul or spiritual side.

Reiki is a versatile healing system based on the channelling of energy at various frequencies, sometimes akin to dealing with the fundamental energy of oriental medicine, but sometimes more akin to channelling energy of divine origin for the benefit of a person's spirit or soul. It is both at the same time.
