Reiki is one of the greatest gifts that you can give and receive

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of Enlightenment and a Hands on Healing art
rediscovered in the early 1900's by Mikao Usui in Japan.
It is an art that is passed from
Master to student. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words
Rei and Ki, meaning universal life energy. The term "reiki" is used to describe both the energy
and the Usui system
of using it. The original system by Usui was called Usui Reiki Ryoho.
There are many variant's of reiki being practiced these days.
Included in this list may be Usui Shiki Ryoho, "Traditional Reiki" of the Takata-Furumoto line
as practiced in America.

Japanese Kanji [alphabet] is unique in that each letter has seven levels of meaning.
The word REI which means 'universal' at a basic level also means 'spiritually guided'
at a deeper level. So Reiki is "spiritually guided life force energy ."

The Power of the Universal Energy
Since Reiki is spiritually guided, it has its own intelligence.
This explains why a Reiki practitioner need not possess any knowledge of medicine.
Thus, even children can be attuned to first degree Reiki.
The practitioner has only to place his or her hands on a person and Reiki does the healing.

The difference between life force energy and universal life force energy:

Life force energy is also called 'ki' in Japanese, 'chi' in Chinese and 'prana' in Sanskrit and other
Indian languages. This is the non-physical energy that flows in every thing and ensures life.

When the level of this life force energy is high a person may be healthy, strong and confident.
A lowering of this energy level may result in weakness and ill health.

Universal life force energy, on the other hand, is spiritually guided energy that comes from a
'higher intelligence' or higher source. It is available to the healer to apply where there are cases
of disease mental, physical or emotional, caused by the depletion of life force energy.
Being spiritually guided it has it's own intelligence, starts healing at the root cause and compensates
the depletion of life force energy. Reiki Master, William Rand says in an article on Reiki
"It must be kept in mind that Reiki is not the same as simple life force energy as life force energy by itself
can be influenced by the mind and because of this, can create benefit as well as create problems
including ill health." Universal life force energy, on the other hand, is spiritually guided and cannot
be influenced by the mind. Because of its spiritual nature Reiki also acts as a guiding force in our lives
and is available to help us in times of need. It acts for the highest good at all times.

Reiki healing not only helps to alleviate the physiological symptoms of ill health, but it helps us to deal
with the cause. This enables us to live a more balanced and healthy life.

May all who would benefit from this path be guided to it - William Rand
