REIKI is pronounced Ray-Key. Rei means "universal" and refers also to the spiritual dimension and the soul. Ki is translated as the vital life force energy that flows through all that is alive. These Japanese characters when combined present the concept of "universal life-force energy. This energy is known as 'Prana' in Sanskrit and 'Chi' in Chinese. Reiki is the fundamental energy that creates and sustains the universe. Originally from ancient Tibet, Reiki was rediscovered and revived by Dr.Mikao Usui from Japan; he and his disciples introduced the system of Reiki to the world. The system is unique as it makes good health and balance possible for both self and others. In short Reiki is a holistic, self-help technique for directing vital life energy. After getting initiated to Reiki by a trained Reiki master/teacher, anyone is able to direct the 'universal life force energy' to meet individual needs. Reiki has no religion, doctrine or barriers of age, sex and nationality. It is universal, abundant and can be accessed by anyone who desires to use it for the highest good. Everything is energy and energy can't be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another. We all are energy beings and a balanced state of energy means complete health and balance in life at physical, mental and emotional level. When energy is depleted in our system, it manifests in the form of illness. A Reiki channel uses the life force energy to fill this void of energy and establish balance in the energy body leading to holistic healing.
