Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki's ki-energies flow out of the practitioner's body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient’s body. Reiki can also be done off the body, where the practitioner hovers his/her hands over the different areas of the recipient’s body.

 

Reiki Attunement- Every one can be initiated to Reiki. The attunement process enables the recipient to permanently open and connect to the Universal Reiki Energies on mental, physical, emotional and psychic level. It also clears and balances many important energy channels within the body.

Each attunement received, opens up to higher levels of healing and understanding Universal Spirituality. It is very easy to learn Reiki. No special background or knowledge is required, so anyone of any age can learn and practice it. Attunements are given by a Reiki Master and there are three formal levels of initiation.

Reiki Level I- At this level the initiate is permanently attuned and connected to the Reiki source of healing energy. Once initiated it allows a person to performing healing on oneself and others. It requires no special invocation or alteration of the thinking process to "turn on the flow" of Reiki. By simply placing the hands and opening the heart to love, one automatically brings in the energy.
