What does the word Reiki mean?


Q: What does the word “Reiki” mean?

A: “Rei” means “guided.” “Ki” means “life force energy.” (pronounced “Ray-key”). Together, they mean that life force energy is being guided to bring the body, emotions, and spiritual aspects of ourselves into balance.

How is the life force energy guided, and where does it come from? It’s guided by INTENTION – that is, directed thought. Yes, it really is that easy. Our thoughts create powerful energy that creates change.

It comes from all around us. When I give Reiki, it isn’t my energy that I’m offering – it is energy from all around that comes THROUGH me to you. You receive it where you are ready to receive it – that means, where you need it to go to bring you into balance. You need to be receptive, though, because your INTENTION to receive is another part of the equation.
