In Japanese, “Reiki” means “Universal Life Energy”.
Today, many know Reiki as the healing technique in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a person’s body to accelerate and enhance their body’s natural healing abilities.
For me, however, Reiki is so much more than the facilitation of one’s energy during a hands-on session. For me, Reiki is a meditation. It is a daily practice of conscious connection to the things we feel but cannot see, and it is a doorway into the oneness of everything.
Reiki is not religious or dogmatic in any way. It will always meet you exactly where you are. If it is your wish, however, it can open up an inner spiritual dimension by deepening your connection with the part of life that has no physical expression.
