'Rei' meaning Life force and 'Ki' meaning energy. Reiki is an ancient Japanese method of non-invasive healing which, when received, enables both giver and receiver to heal, re-balance, re-charge and cultivate energy. It is delivered through gentle touch and was re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui. There is a field of energy known as 'life force' or 'Ki' which flows though us enabling us to be alive and conscious in this world. When there is too little we become tired, weak, depressed, depleted and more vulnerable to illness. When there is too much we can become volatile, fearful, restless, anxious to name but a few states. This is when we are in 'excess'. Both ends of the scale can and mostly do result in sickness. When our energy is restored to its natural balance, we have more 'energy' and are generally happier, clearer, healthier and faster to heal.
The ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student during a class which involves something called an 'Attunement' from the Reiki Master. This will 'tune you in', clear and open your channels for the energy to flow more freely. It is taught in three, sometimes four stages. Reiki 1, Reiki 2, Reiki Masters and Master/Teacher training. Some teachers will teach each section over a number of weeks with just a few hours a week. Each course varies in length. It all depends on the Master that you pick. Just go with the one that you feel drawn to.
