Rei = Spirit, The Universe, Higher Power Ki = Life force energy
Reiki = Spiritually guided life force energy
A great man by the name of Mikao Usui discovered Reiki in the late 1800’s. It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
