Reiki is beyond words, it is known through experience, not explanation.The word Reiki (pronounced “ray key”) is Japanese. It is the amalgamation of two words, “rei” which means both universal, in the sense of everywhere and also spiritual wisdom and “ki” which means the same as prana or chi i.e. the vital life force within everything alive. Reiki can be translated as spiritually guided life force energy. It creates and sustains everything in existence and can be used to transform, and re-create.
Reiki is also the one word descriptive name for the Usui Art of Natural Healing. This was discovered and developed about one hundred years ago in Japan through the dedication and experience of Dr Mikao Usui. It is a simple to learn, easy to practice, way of experiencing Reiki energy in daily life and using it to restore health and harmony to the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Reiki is a powerful transformation tool, promoting expansion into a new level of awareness and being.
