What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing system that is based on the belief that the energy which shapes the world around us can be directed by the power of a person's thoughts to provide effective healing.

Dr Mikao Usui

Japanese, Dr Mikao Usui, rediscovered Reiki in the early 20th century.  His initial task was to determine how spiritual leaders, such as the Buddha and Christ, were able to perform miraculous healing through mere touch, without depleting their own energy reserves – a deep spiritual experience led him to devote many years of his life to the study.  During his quest, he experienced an intense energy gratification that had healing powers.  He named this energy Usui Reiki Ryoho.  His disciples popularized both the concept and its practice within the West.

Reiki (pronounced 'ray-key') is made up of two words – rei and kiRei can be interpreted as a higher form of intelligence, while ki denotes life force.  Taken together, reiki is understood to be a kind of universal energy.  This healing system works by raising the vibrations of the person to be healed closer to those of the practitioner.  Reiki is a multidimensional energy healing system that can heal the cause of a problem at whatever level it may exist – mind, body or spirit.  Reiki is transferred to students by Reiki Masters through a series of attunements.

During an attunement process, the Master selects a series of symbols, which represent important points located along a person's energy field, and guides them through higher vibrations of energy.  This attunement process enables recipients to access the healing energy on their own – and in turn, help others to access it.
