What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of hands on healing, with its origins in India and the East dating back many thousands of years to the time before Christ and Buddha. The original name, disciplines and techniques of Reiki were lost due to the traditional method of passing knowledge from generation to generation by word of mouth. Exactly when this ancient art of healing disappeared is unknown. However, it was re-discovered by a Japanese Scholar and monk, Dr Usui who fashioned the name REIKI.
Reiki is a two syllable Japanese word meaning “Universal Life Energy”. REi means “Universal Life” and KI means “Energy”. Ki energy can be activated for the purpose of healing. When you feel healthy and full of enthusiasm, the flow of Ki energy in your body is high and unencumbered. Life seems easier to deal with and you have a higher resistance to illness and disease. When your Ki energy is low because maybe you are under stress or feeling unhappy and tired, you will be more susceptible disease and sickness. Your attitude will be generally negative, and you will find it difficult to deal with life’s challenges.
