The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words - Rei and Ki.
Rei is the Higher Intelligence/God that guides creation and functioning of the universe. And Rei is available to help us in times of need and to act as a source of guidance in our lives.
Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans. We receive Ki from the air we breath, from food, sunshine, and from sleep.
Reiki then, is a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher Intelligence, or spiritually guided life force energy.
As a reiki practitioner the energy flowing through me comes from this beautiful life force. God, Angels, beautiful Angelic Guides, and other known healers (Jesus, Buddha, Mother Mary etc.) come forth at the beginning of the session. I am the conduit. The energy flows through my hands into the energy centers of the person receiving a treatment.The energy flows to their chakra centers in need of clearing.
This week we will focus on each of chakras. Their meanings, location in our bodies and their colors.
