Reiki pronounced as ray-key is from two Japanese words Rei (which means God's wisdom or the higher power) and ki (which means life force energy) you can say Reiki is a spiritual or God life force or energy.

In actual sense Reiki is a form of spiritual healing that uses ki (life force or energy) that flow through your body and causes you to be alive. The level of ki in you determines your mood and health state, when your ki is low, you feel stress are you're more likely to get ill, while when your ki is high, then you feel happy and healthy.

Reiki is a simple and natural way of getting healed, and improving your self, you can be a part of Reiki healing. It is administered by a Reiki master or you do it yourself as it has simple and clear steps to follow to be healed. Amazingly, Reiki doesn't just give you physical healing, it also treats the whole you (spirit, mind and emotions).

When you experience Reiki healing an amazing feeling of peace and energy will flow through your body. Reiki healing works by the ki from a Reiki practitioner or master (administered by laying his hands) flowing through your own affected ki parts charging them with positive ki which raises the vibrational level of the ki in and around your body that has the negative thoughts or feelings. The vibration caused breaks apart the negative ki in your body and so your ki pathways becomes clear and straightened, thereby allowing your ki to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Historically, Reiki originates from Tibet, and was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, who was a Japanese Buddhist in early 20th century and since then Reiki has been used and has had miraculous results in people's body. Reiki isn't a religion, so you don't have to be in any religion to practice Reiki healing.

Using Reiki healing healing isn't in anyway a cumbersome process, all you need to do is to learn (not just by reading). You get the ability by an attunement or intiation which consists of three levels (1,2 and master level), the ability once gotten will never leave you and it is easy to use. Your ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on your intellectual capacity, nor do you have to be able to meditate. It also does not take years for you to practice. It is simply passed on to you from the teacher.

Your attunement is performed by a Reiki teacher, who will serve as the path for the ki. While you are sitting, the teacher begins the initiation behind you, continues by coming in front and drawing sacred Reiki symbols into your aura, hands, heart, and concludes the initiation standing at your back while you sit.
