Reiki originated in Japan in early twentieth century and was brought to US by Reiki Master Takata in late 1930’s in Hawaii.
The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words
Rei = Universal (as in present every where and in every thing)
Ki = Life force (Vitality or Energy or force or light of life present in all living beings)
Reiki cannot be created or destroyed. Any living being has the universal life force within. A healthy mind/body/spirit has easy flow of this life force and therefore balance. When one has any ailment, the body has diminished life force and therefore unable to heal itself. Once replenished, the body is able to heal itself and come in balance again.
You do not need to believe in Reiki for it to work; you only need willingness to experience it. When one learns to give or receive reiki, one has a way to connect to the universal life force.
A Reiki practitioner does not diagnose or manipulate your energetic imbalance; a Reiki practitioner will access the field of vibration that surrounds your body and encourages it to move toward balance.
You do not need to believe in Reiki for it to work; you only need willingness to experience it.
Your experience as a recipient will be unique to you. You may feel warm tingling, while others feel subtle pulsations or waves. There are those who feel nothing however, they are so relaxed that they fall into a deep sleep.
The possibilities of how Reiki can help you will be endless.
