Reiki is pronounced “ray key” and is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. It is a simple but very effective form of natural healing. We rely on energy in everything we do. We need energy to move our bodies, to eat food and take a drink. We even need energy to get out of bed in a morning. At times our energy is depleted and we feel tired, and ill.
There is, however, an unseen energy all around us, which flows through all living things. Reiki enables you to absorb an unlimited supply of this natural produced life force energy.
This natural healing energy flows into your body in a powerful and concentrated way via the Reiki giver. In doing so Reiki revitalizes and balances the energies that are already in your body to improve health and enhance quality of life.
The Reiki giver acts as a conduit to channel this energy to the receiver (you or a loved one). Reiki treatments are safe, non-invasive, non-addictive and you are likely to enjoy the feeling of peace and contentment after a session. Reiki is very effective. No personal energy is taken or drained from me, the giver, and in fact quite the opposite happens as I simultaneously receive all the benefits of a Reiki session.

Reiki – a brief history
Reiki is an ancient healing method, one of the oldest known to mankind. Originally from Tibet, Reiki was rediscovered by a Japanese monk named Dr Mikao Usui in the 19th century.
Dr. Usui was the director and Christian priest at a small university in Kyoto in Japan.
He gave up his position at the university to study the ancient Buddhist teachings in a quest to seek out methods of healing.
During his research he became aware of the Symbols and Mantras (sayings) which are key to Reiki healing. However, Dr Usui didn’t know, at that time how these symbols and sayings could be used in healing. During his research Dr Usui spent a lot of time in a Buddhist monastery where he became a close friend of the head Abbot. The Abbot suggested that Dr Usui should take a trek up a holy mountain close to Kyoto as this might reveal the answers to his questions. He suggested that Dr Usui should spend 21 days on the mountain during which time he should fast and meditate.
Dr Usui took the Abbot’s advice but for the first 20 days and nights nothing happened, no matter how much Dr Usui focussed on his meditation.
But on the last day of his fast Dr Usui went deep into meditation. He saw a bright light shining in the sky. This light quickly moved towards him, striking him in the middle of his forehead.
He felt this light enter his body and he felt as if his whole body was awash with this bright light. In front of him he saw vivid coloured lights followed by an almost blinding white light.
In the centre of the white light he could see the symbols that he had discovered during his research into the Buddhist teachings.
Dr Usui now knew how these symbols and mantras could be used to provide healing. He felt an enormous energy boost, his body overflowing with a powerful healing force. This incredible occurrence had given him the answers he had so keenly wanted to find.
Dr Usui rushed down from the mountain and in his haste stubbed and badly cut his toe. He wrapped his hands around the bleeding toe and was amazed that the blood flow stopped and the pain disappeared straight away. This proved to him that indeed he was now able to bring about rapid healing.
He returned to the monastery where he spent several more weeks, developing and working with his newly found healing powers. After a while Dr Usui left the monastery and spent the next seven years healing the sick in the slum areas of Kyoto.
Although he had numerous successes he realised that there was something more important than just healing his patients physical symptoms. People should actually want to be healed and that the sick persons own self-belief and attitude was an important part of the healing process.
As a result Dr Usui developed The Reiki Principles, an attitude and way of life. Although these principles were established over 100 years ago they are still very relevant and of great importance today.
Try, if you can, to live your life in support of the Reiki principles.
Just for today do not worry
Just for today do not anger
Just for today work honestly
Just for today show love and respect for everything
Just for today be grateful for all your blessings
If we all followed these principles everyday the world would be a much happier, healthier and safer place in which to live.
