Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) consists of two Japanese words – Rei, which means divine consciousness or Higher Power, and ki, which means life force energy. One way to define Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. This energy is an example of unconditional or divine love. Through this awesome love we can connect with our spiritual nature and enhance our spiritual growth.
Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of energy healing and self-improvement that can benefit everyone. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Relaxation is an important component in healing ourselves. Reiki assists the body in healing itself through relaxation and stress reduction so that our ki, or vital life energy is flowing smoothly again.
Reiki assists us by connecting us with our natural state, infusing our energy systems with divine love, power, and light. As we heal ourselves spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally we bring wholeness and balance into our lives. As we truly love ourselves and honor our divinity, our capacity to love and honor others grows exponentially. Reiki is not a religion, but it can connect us to our true spiritual essence.
