Reiki is a multi-faceted “hands-on healing technique” that utilizes Universal Life force energy to help us with healing of self and others, meditation practices, spiritual growth, manifestation of goals, and activating the Divine healing power within all living beings. Reiki is a tool to help us develop “wellness consciousness” and also to understand, on an experiential level, what it truly means to be “One with all Creation”. The Reiki Kanji symbol means “Universal Life Force Energy”. Many also call this spiritual energy or Divine Energy
As we know, everything in our Universe is energy. There are many forms of healing energy and Reiki is one of many healing rays. Reiki is unique in that it is requires an attunement from a Reiki Master Teacher to connect one to this Universal Energy. This energy is intelligent and wise and knows precisely what we need to relax, release stress, and activate the healing power within.
Universal Energy is known by many names in various cultures, the most common being Chi. Chi is the Chinese word for this force and has many translations such as energy, air, breath, wind, and vital essence. Though difficult to define, it can be thought of as the activating energy of the universe. Chi condenses and disperses in alternating cycles of negative and positive (Yin and Yang) energy, materializing in different ways, forms, and shapes. Chi can neither be created or destroyed. Instead, Chi transforms itself and reappears in new states of existence. Chi is the source of all movement in the universe. Chi also binds things together. The Chi that forms the heavens and earth is essentially the same as the Chi that forms living. In other cultures Chi is known as Prana (Sanskrit),), Ki (Japanese), Lung (Tibetan), Neyatoneyah (Lakota Sioux), Barraka (Islamic).
