Reiki is a very powerful form of healing energy that originated in Tibet and was re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui who was the Dean of a small Christian University in Kyoto, Japan.

Reiki is therefore the Japanese word for Life Force Energy.

Rei – Spiritual Wisdom

Ki – Life Force Energy

Rei – Spiritual Wisdom

Rei means the higher intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe.  It can be described as the God/Godess.  Rei is used in Reiki to mean spiritual consciousness.  This is the wisdom which comes from God through the higher self.  This is the God-Consciousness which is all knowing.  It understands each person completely. It knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows what to do to heal them.

Ki – Life Force Energy

Ki is the vital life force energy.  Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese Prana in Sanscrit and Mana in Hawaiian.  It has also been called ‘odic force’ ‘orgone’ and ‘bioplasma’.  It has been given many other names by various cultures.

Ki the universal life force is the non-physical energy that animates all living things.  Therefore if your life force is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will be vulnerable to illness.   When it is high and flowing freely it creates health, vitality and well-being.

It is the God-consciousness called Rei that guides the life force called Ki in the practice we call Reiki.

Reiki can therefore be defined as a spiritually guided Life Force energy.  This is a meaningful interpretation of the word Reiki which closely describes the experience most people have of it.

Reiki therefore guides itself with its own wisdom.
