The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei, which means universal, higher spiritual consciousness, and Ki, which means life force energy. Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. Anyone can benefit from Reiki. Anyone can learn Reiki.
Reiki never causes harm and can be used in any situation. It works on all levels–physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
The ability to channel Reiki energy cannot be learned by studying it. This ability is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process.
