What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word made from ‘Rei’ meaning universe, abundant or boundless and ‘Ki’ meaning life force or vital energy. Hence, meaning, universal life force.
Reiki is a healing method that can be used to heal ourselves as well as others. It is considered to be another form of meditation. Therefore, the more it is practised, the more we can benefit from it.
How does it work?
The healing power of Reiki is gained from the universe. As we know, universe is full of power traveling in the form of waves. Since, energy can neither be created nor be destroyed; we can use this energy to our benefit, in this case, to heal.
Main principle of Reiki is the fact that we possess the power of healing within us. This can be explained by the feeling of relief we get when a loved one touches us while we are sad or in pain. To perfect the art of Reiki, a person has to learn it from a Reiki master.
Firstly, he heals us and releases the energy blocked in our body. After this, our body connects to the source energy and learns to gain the universal energy. We utilize this energy as positive thoughts and intentions. Since, cosmic energy is abundant; we can gain as much energy as we need.
Once, the first of Reiki is completed, the student is made to perform a 21 days self-healing practise. It is relative to the theory that in an airplane emergency, we must put on our own oxygen masks before helping others.
Also, to heal others using Reiki, we have to make sure that we ourselves are full of the energy we are going to use. Another thing to keep in mind is that Reiki can only be used on a person who is willing to receive it.

Reiki “Masters” are those who have “mastered the techniques” to awaken all that isn’t our True Selves (which can be interpreted as “healing”)… Usually through personal experience(s) of having Reiki treatment(s), some choose to become “Masters” too… By no means are masters “perfect”, they too, have their own set of evolutions to learn and grow beyond societal mandates… They are also required to agree to certain; principles, learn methods and techniques, to help both themselves (<very important!) and others, then choose to Be examples for others to allude to too… Becoming and choosing to be vehicles for the Divine (or Universal) Energy, they themselves won't ever allow their egos to get in the way… Instead, they simply open themselves to be vehicles (for both themselves and others), being fully present, helping others re-member their True Selves too… Namaste…
