Understanding Reiki 

Reiki is defined as a universal life force energy. Mikao Usui in Japan developed this spiritual practice during the early 20th century. It is a Japanese word that comes from two words, “rei” meaning universal and “ki” meaning life force energy it is also known as chi or prana. It can be defined as the spiritual practice of channelling universal life force energy for healing and promoting well-being. 

History and Origins of Reiki 

The origins of Reiki can be traced back to the early 20th century when Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk developed this practice.

As the legends say, Usui underwent a spiritual quest to discover the secret of physical and spiritual healing. He had an intense mystical experience that gave him the ability to channel healing energy through his hand after several years of study, meditation and fasting. 

Usui then went on to teach others the practice of it and the system of adaptation, symbols and hands-on healing techniques. This technique is now recognized as Reiki practice and has evolved. Today it is practiced and taught worldwide in various forms such as Traditional Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki and many others.
