An overview of Reiki

The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words, Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". Reiki is in fact "spiritually guided life force energy." which is used to relieve illness and other maladies.
Reiki is a technique which can also be used to relieve stress and it helps to promote relaxation. It is a technique that involves the laying on of hands of the practitioner to the person whom he is trying to administer healing.
Reiki is based on the idea that there is a hidden life force or energy within us all which is what causes all living creatures to have life. If the life force or energy is low, then the person becomes ill or feels low and depressed. If the life force is high, then we all feel in optimum health.
Many people who have undergone a Reiki treatment report that they experience a wonderful radiance that travels not only throughout their body but also around it. This is because the Reiki treats not only the body but the emotions, mind and spirit. Reiki creates a wonderful feeling of peace security and well being.
Part of the process of Reiki healing is the idea that the person who is accepting the healing must take responsibility for their wellbeing. This means they have to actually take an active part in the Reiki healing process. This is usually done by the person making a firm commitment to themselves.
Because it is such a simple though effective technique, Reiki can be used by anyone. It is a natural way of spiritual healing which works well in conjunction with other more conventional methods and helps to promote a faster recovery.
Reiki is taught in a "class" situation. The ability is passed from the master to the student during a process called attunement. The pupil is able to tap into an unlimited supply of life force energy which can be used to enhance and improve a person's quality of life.
Many people assume Reiki to be a "cult" or some type of religion, this is not true. Reiki is not dependent on whether you believe in Christianity, Buddhism or any other religion. It works no matter who you believe your higher deity to be.
Reiki can be taught to anyone, you don't have to be an intellectual or a spiritual person, It doesn't matter what your background is, whether you are rich or poor. All you need to believe is that it works.
Even though Reiki is not a "religion" it still has principles and ethics which should be upheld. This includes living in harmony and peace with others.
