Reiki is a Japanese word often translated as universal life-force energy or spiritual energy. It is a holistic healing system that encompasses the body, soul and mind.
In Kanji it is written as follows:
The word ‘Ki’ here is similar to Qi Gong, an energy which operates at high vibrations and fast frequencies which makes it difficult for the naked eyes to see.
The source of this spiritual energy is gathered from the universe putting religious belief aside here. Reiki is a non-religious holistic healing system that may be practiced by people from all walks of life. It is a healing system that can heal our body, soul/spirit and mind.
As a natural form of healing system, Reiki can be used as an alternative healing method or therapy to complement or enhance other conventional medical treatments. However, it should not be regarded as a magical cure for any health conditions.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice, we fall sick when the Qi flow in our physical body is not flowing well. Therefore, acupuncture is used to activate/facilitate the qi flow. Reiki is functioning in almost a similar way. A Reiki practitioner will draw upon the universal energy to heal and balance the Qi flow of their physical body when performing self-healing or healing for others. Therefore, a Reiki healer’s energy is never depleted.
Reiki energy can be sent to an event, place and people.
