The Universal life Energy flows through our hands in concentrated form when we treat someone with Reiki.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Can Reiki be Learnt?
YES!. It is a wonderful system, which can be learnt and taught and is perhaps the easiest and quickest to learn and use, and effective at the same time.
How to use Reiki
No equipment or machine is required to learn and practice Reiki. All you need is the hands to carry it out and treat at physical, emotional, and mental levels. Yes, this is exactly so. This simplicity has made it the fastest growing healing system in the world today.
Learning and using Reiki is so simple that many people tend to disbelieve it. Since Reiki is non-physical in nature, one needs to be a step away from materialism to understand it. The person, who has an understanding of metaphysical and paranormal subjects, would find it easier to learn and use it and will enjoy more than the others. True understanding and enjoyment comes by learning and then using it.
Who can learn Reiki?
Practically, every human being, male or female, can learn Reiki and become Reiki healer at any age. It neither involves any hard training nor any special educational, spiritual or intellectual level is required. One does not have to be a traditional medical practitioner to learn and use it. The only requirement is the “will” and “desire” to learn. Even the children can be attuned and made Reiki healers.
How is Reiki taught?
Reiki is not taught like other healing systems. There are no tests and examinations involved in Reiki training. It cannot be learnt by reading only the books either. This ability is to be transferred to the student personally by a living Reiki Master through a special process which is called attunement.
Stages of Reiki:
Reiki training is imparted in different stages, which are called levels or degrees.
Levels of Reiki:
Level – I
This Level is called Laying on Hands.
The student is taught healing by hands-on method and is given attunements for this level. This is the first step towards using the unlimited and wonderful healing powers of Reiki for treating oneself, others and even plants and animals.
Level – II
This Level is called Absent Healing.
It is for those who have successfully completed the training for Level-1. The student is taught three Reiki symbols, which are secret and sacred as well. At this level, energy is not bound by time and space. Healer can send the energy and perform the healing from any distance. Healing power becomes much stronger than the first level. By bringing in more energy, one can affect the healing more rapidly taking lesser time. It is at this level that emotional and mental healing can also be done.
This is major Transformation Stage.
It is for those who have completed first two levels and now wish to enhance their own abilities but do not wish to take teaching responsibilities. A Master is simply the one who has received attunements for this level. No ego or ownership is otherwise involved in the term. Master Reiki symbol is taught in this level.
This is the stage after level III. Here one is trained to give attunements to others. Reiki Master assumes complete responsibility of teaching, training and attuning.
