What Is Reiki?

Ki is energy

Rei means from God / The Universe

Reiki ( pronounced ray-key ) is the ancient Japanese art of hands-on healing.

Some believe that we all have the power to heal, but this form of energy healing was rediscovered in the late 19th Century by Dr Mikao Usui.

He was a monk who set out on a journey to discover how Jesus and Buddha had the power to heal.

After a 21-day fast, at the top of a sacred mountain, Dr Usui saw sacred symbols in the light and realised he had been given this gift.

He taught that it is necessary for us to become responsible for our own health and to strive to balance ourselves on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Dr Usui’s guidelines for leading a balanced life are:

Just for today, do not worry

Just for today, do not get angry

Honour your parents and teachers

Earn your living honestly

Be kind to every living thing

The Anglo-Saxon word hal meant whole – both holy and healthy.

What is mindfulness

Reiki helps people become whole. It is gentle and simple, yet powerful.

The energy encourages an individual to begin to heal themselves from within. It’s often the first step to a new way of being : a realisation that we are all connected, all divine and the only thing which matters is Love.

Although Reiki is a way of healing through the hands, it’s different from other methods of touch healing because of the process of attunement – a way of switching on the energy which was always there.

The healing energy is passed directly from a Reiki Master to a student through a sacred ceremony, which is often profoundly moving. From that moment, the student is able to channel universal energy through her/his hands.

It can be used for the self, for family and friends and is safe for babies, children and pets !!

At Reiki Level 2, students are taught the Reiki symbols and are able to send distant healing.

For those who wish Reiki to become a way of life, there is Master Level.

Reiki is not a threat to orthodox medicine, but can be used in a complementary way.
