Rei - Spiritual wisdom
Ki (Chi in Chinese) - Vital life force
Reiki means Universal Life Energy and is pronounced "ray-key".
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is the method of drawing concentrated life force energy and radiating it. Reiki is the physical force that flows through all living things, and animates them. Life force plays important role in everything we do. It enlivens the body as well as the emotions, thoughts and spirit. Reiki reaches all levels of existence and strives to bring these different levels into balance. It seems to have a way of knowing what is needed for the person, as it is naturally drawn by the recipient in a treatment.
The knowledge that unseen life energy flows through all living things, and is connected with healing, has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The wisdom is also the ground for such theories as Quantum Physics. This energy could be measured and seen in Kirlian photography. The below video, although a bit rusty, clearly illustrates how the energy could be visualised.
The Reiki healer is simply a channel through which this energy flows. The healer directs this flow of Reiki to a recipient’s body.
