What Is Reiki?

The word Reiki comprises two Japanese words: Rei, which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power,” and Ki, which is “life force energy.” So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Reiki is a way to stimulate the innate self-healing process by helping to move blocked or stuck energy in the body, spirit, mind, and emotions. Our ability to find our own inner wisdom to initiate healing can become dormant over time, but it is always there. Reiki energy helps to shine a light on this part of ourselves — to awaken this ability so we can find our inner wisdom to help guide ourselves.
