Reiki works on a subtle level where, when the practitioner lays their hands on or slightly above their client, this will open up channels of healing or the various charkas and this healing travels throughout the body’s energy fields. This is a similar therapy to Pranic Healing. Both of these forms of healing use Universal energy. This again is another use of a powerful breathing system.

Reiki is made up of two Japanese words –Rei which can be translated as “the Wisdom of God or the Higher Power” and Ki which means “Life Force Energy”

Reiki is a natural energy therapy that was developed and practiced by the Tibetan Monks over 2500 years ago. What is remarkable about Reiki is that it can be passed on to anyone who wants to learn it. It is thought of as a practice that is used for healing the body but it also heals the mind and spirit.

The type of Reiki I have studied is the Usui System of Natural Healing. This type of Reiki was developed in the mid 1800 by Mikao Usui who was a Christian Minister and also the principal of the Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan. His students had questioned him about the methods that Jesus had used for healing, so he embarked on a ten year quest to find out and learn the skills. Usui turned to Buddhism to help him. He was informed by the Buddhist monks that this teaching had been lost but still he joined the Buddhist monks to discover the Buddhist Teachings – the Path to Enlightenment.

Still not able to get all answers, he traveled to the United States and obtain a degree of Theology from the University of Chicago Divinity School. He returned to Japan, still without the answers. He joined a Zen Monastery and decided to fast and meditate for twenty one days. On the twentieth night, all was revealed to him in a dream. From that day on, he was able to heal and his healings were known as “Miracles.”

Reiki is now being used with main stream medicine and the results are astounding. Watch this video to see what is happening.


  1. Hi Sue
    This sort of healing fascinates me. I had acupuncture several yaers ago and my physiotherapist said it might not work, but as the Chinese have used it for thousands of years, it was good enough for me. It didn’t work on my Mum for a similar problem, but it worked fine for me.

    1. Hi Dee

      Thanks for the visit. Yes it is fascinating and I have studied all the things that I write about. I was fascinated when I came across that video because it proves that is becoming more mainstream. Chinese medicine is becoming more and more accepted. I studied acupressure and the college wanted me to continue and do acupuncture but I declined at the time because it meant another 2-3 years. I love this now so I have no regrets.

      To YOUR success
