What is Reiki and How Does it Work?
Every living being radiates warmth and energy- this energy is the life force itself and has as many names as there are human civilizations.
In Japan it is called Ki and is the root word for Reiki.
It is called Chi in China,
Barraka in Islamic countries,
Ruach in Hebrew,
Manna in Polynesian,
Life force by westerners,
In India it is called (also a Yoga term).
The word Reiki(pronounced Ray Key) derives from two Japanese words that mean literally: universal life force energy. The source of all universal life force energy is the source of all life and is older than all creation. Just as there are many names for Ki, there are just as many names for this source: Creator, God, the Universe, the First Source, Goddess, the Higher Self, Great Mystery, Higher Power, etc.
Reiki is a vibrational, or spiritual, healing practice that promotes overall balance. Reiki is most often described as a light vibration or energy, and Reiki practitioners are said to “Channel” it from the Universe. Our planet is bombarded with vibrational waves and particles from the Sun , Planets, Stars, Galaxies.
Reiki – universal life force energy is both the Yin(Earth energy) & Yang(Sky energy). Yin moves from earth to Heart centre and Yang from sky to Heart centre joins to flow through the hands of Reiki Channel, as hands are the extensions of heart.
It is facilitated through light, non-invasive touch to a fully clothed person who is either lying down or sitting comfortably.There are different techniques to send Reiki Energy, some of those are, by touch, beaming, blowing to the position, through your eyes etc..but in everything the pure thought that supports the healing to happen is also made.
One of the first things people notice about this healing energy is an intensified heat radiating from the person’s hands. Those who have experienced a Reiki healing often comment that “her hands were so hot!” This is the life force energy flowing through them, and it is powerful!
From my Teaching experience I have also found that even people experience cold energy, even when we did group healing to that person our hands also became cold. That is how I came to know that Reiki healing happens according to the person’s need and the command is from the Divine Infinite Intelligence.

The ritual involves energetic placement of Reiki symbols through a specific set of sequenced actions into the students Chakras.The attunements have in themselves a very powerful balancing and healing effect.The power symbol resonates strongest with the physical body level, the mental healing symbol with the emotional body and the distant healing symbol with the mental body.The Master healing symbol works on the spiritual body level.
Distant Reiki is a favorite treatment form as it can be applied in an instant. The healing energy can be sent to you wherever you are in the world at any time or by you if you are a Reiki channel to heal anyone irrespective of time and climate.
