What Is Reiki?

What is Reiki…

When people find out I am a Reiki Master, or when I offer Reiki the first thing they ask if – “What is Reiki?”

Reiki is a gentle, hands on Japanese healing system. The word Reiki consists of two Japanese characters. The first character means "universal" and the second "life force energy". Although "discovered" by a Japanese man in the 1800's {Dr. Mikao Usui} this system is thousands of years old and known among Tibetan and Zen Buddhist.

Reiki is very easily learned, very simple to use, and beneficial for all. It is one of many forms of healing through the use of the natural forces which were given the name Chi by ancient Chinese mystics

A Reiki healing is very simply performed. The practitioner places his or her hands upon the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and then the energy begins flowing. The Reiki energy is smart since the Universe is a very smart place indeed. The energy knows where to go, and what to do once it gets there, or else is being directed by a higher intelligence. The energy manages its own flow to and within the recipient. It draws through the healer exactly that amount of energy which the recipient needs. All this happens without direct conscious intervention by the healer. The healers job is to get out of the way, to keep the healing space open, and to watch/listen for signs of what to do next.

Reiki is capable of healing anything because it works at very fundamental levels of reality. Even though the capability is there, this is not what always happens. The limits to Reiki seem to be in the recipients willingness to cast off old habits and patters, to accept change and to accept healing. Emotional difficulties are just as healable as physical ones since emotional issues are even more directly present in the energy structures.

Reiki is also a gateway shining pure love into the universe. It is this love which allows us to transcend our wounds and help us remember our true nature.
