What does the word Reiki mean? Reiki is a Sanskrit word. REI means universal life and KI means vital energy.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a technique of channeling and transmitting vital energy through the laying on of hands.

What is Reiki used for?

Reiki is used to obtain peace and balance on all levels, both physically and mentally, as well as emotionally and spiritually. Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.

Where does Reiki come from?

Reiki is of Japanese origin and was discovered by a monk named Mikao Usui in the mid-nineteenth century.

Who can practice it? All human beings can practice Reiki. Even unconsciously, many times, we do it with our children or loved ones. But to understand it and achieve a conscious channeling, we need a guide.

How can one learn Reiki?

 The learning of Reiki consists of three levels. The first level is the initiation to Reiki, which focuses on learning how to tune into the universe, learn the symbols of Reiki and how to apply Reiki using the tools taught at this level. In this first level, we learn how to use a breathing technique called HARA. We also learn to identify the Chakras, meditation techniques, and to feel the energy in the hands. It is a very special inner journey for the student.

Th e second level teaches us to channel the energy, so that it can be sent from a distance, and thus, be able to help other people using more advanced symbols.

Th e third level is to obtain the final master, which enables you to teach it to others.

In my own experience, Reiki has been one of the most beautiful gift s I have received. It has given me the opportunity to heal myself, and I have also been able to help many others who needed healing. 

Join us for a Reiki workshop in Spanish on Saturday, May 18th from 8am to 2pm. For more details about the workshop, call 504-458-0311.  - -
