Reiki Master Explains: What Is Reiki?
As a Reiki Master, I am often asked what Reiki is. Many people are under the mistaken impression that it is a form of massage. This is not accurate. The word is a noun, pronounced ray-key. The term Reiki is of Japanese origin – Rei, meaning spiritual consciousness, and Ki, which means life force energy. China refers to it as Chi, and in India it is prana. Hawaiians call it Ti or Ki. It has also been called odic force, orgone, bioplasma, and life force – ultimately, it is the same life force energy. Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy.
The Japanese technique of using Reiki for healing the body, mind, and spirit draws on life force energy through touch, the laying on of hands. Reiki can also be given over the body or at a distance. A Reiki Master has received the attunements (placements) for Reiki Master. This empowers them to become aware of higher levels of consciousness, to have a greater connection to the Divine which enables them to receive the enhanced potential for healing and wisdom that comes from Reiki energy.
When we invite Reiki to heal and foster personal growth, a greater healing experience can be realized. Surrendering one’s will to God and receiving the flow of Reiki energy rewards the Reiki Master with enhanced awareness and can lead to unlimited possibilities, not only for personal growth, joy, and peace but also enabling others to benefit as well.
As one of the oldest healing systems in use today, as well as one of the most versatile, Reiki can benefit many aspects of a person’s life. It can be used to heal one’s body, mind, and spirit. It can help those who are suffering from major illnesses as well as alleviating minor complaints, both physical and psychological. Reiki is for everyone – adults, babies, toddlers, children, the elderly, and pets.
A Reiki Master can teach you how to use the healing power of Reiki to heal others. You will reach a level of consciousness that resides deep within you. This new consciousness is a higher aspect of Reiki that is available to all of us. It is a smaller version of what Jesus experienced when he performed miracles and when he had a profoundly positive effect on those around him. You will learn how to improve every aspect of your life and make healthy, positive changes that are needed. By releasing all desire to hold onto negative ways that limit your happiness, you will instead learn to embrace the inner light of Reiki and surrender to its healing power, leading to inner peace.
