What is Reiki?

REIKI (pronounced Ray-Key) consists of two Japanese words – Rei, which translated means divine consciousness or Higher Power, and ki, which means life force energy. A way to define Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. In Japan, Reiki is pronounced Leiki because the Japanese do not say the letter ‘R’ like we do. This spiritually guided life force energy is an example of unconditional or divine love. Through this awesome love we can connect with our spiritual nature and enhance our spiritual growth. THE BENEFITS OF REIKI Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of energy healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from. It has been effective in assisting 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. Relaxation is an important component in healing ourselves. Reiki assists the body in healing itself through relaxation and stress reduction so that our ki, or vital life energy is flowing smoothly again.

How to Receive Reiki

Reiki can be received through Reiki Treatments, Reiki Circle, or taught by a certified Reiki Shinpiden (Master/Teacher as they are referred to in the West) in Reiki Classes. Reiki is administered by light laying on hands and is based on the idea that unseen life force energy flows through every living thing. Contrary to popular belief, our true nature is love, abundance, peace, joy, and light. Our un-natural state consists of fear, anger, and worry. Reiki assists us by connecting us with our natural state, infusing our energy systems with divine love, power, and light.
The Inspired Heart believes Reiki is a sacred initiation and the primary purpose of Reiki is self-healing. As we heal ourselves spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally – we bring wholeness and balance into our lives. As we truly love ourselves and honour our divinity, our capacity to love and honour others grows exponentially. Reiki is not a religion; it connects us with our divine essence and can enhance your spiritual practice.
