Reiki has become very popular over the last decade or so, with the opening up of consciousness to a wider range of ideas about healing, and what constitutes health and ill-health.
So what does the word reiki mean?
In Japanese, the meanings for Rei are universal, holy, spiritual consciousness. And Ki can mean the energy, life force, a vital force that animates all living things.
Hence the word Reiki can be translated into the universal and holy, spiritually conscious, life force energy that energises and animates all living things.
Awakening to the reiki energy within us is generally done using sacred symbols. These reiki symbols have no power in and of themselves. Rather they act as switches which allow us to tune into and turn on the reiki energy within.
