Philosophy of Reiki
“Rei-ki” is most often translated as "universal life force energy" and is pronounced "Ray Key". It is a combination of two Japanese words - Rei which means something mysterious, miraculous, and sacred and Ki which is the atmosphere or something unseen or the energy of the universe.
Reiki is a Japanese technique based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and causes us to be alive. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki heals and being a sacred energy helps us on the path to spiritual enlightenment.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Learning Reiki does not depend on one's intellectual capacity, learning ability or spiritual development. The ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student by the means of "attunement" given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of the energy of the universe to improve one's health and enhance the quality of life.
