What is Reiki?




Reiki is a Japanese term.
靈 Rei means something mysterious, ethereal, sacred and the energy of the Heavens.
氣 Ki means the atmosphere or something subtle and the energy of the Earth.
Actually, the Japanese word Reiki is rather a combination of two Kanji (Chinese characters) of 靈 – Rei, and 氣 – Ki.
Kanji (hieroglyph) can take on different meanings depending upon what the other kanji it is combined with.
The Japanese dictionary defines 靈 Rei (24 strokes) as: «spirit or spiritual», the spiritual aspect of human being as contrasted to the physical; human spirit or soul; departed soul, ghost; the Universe; Divine, luminous, charismatic, mysterious; a supernatural (mythical) beast or being; the luminosity of God or Sage; a fairy, an elf; reverence, sacredness, or blessing; inconceivable spiritual ability; charismatic power; charisma, wonderful, a wonder; a rainmaker, a diviner, a person or being with spiritual or supernatural powers; a shaman; a goodness; good, excellent, efficacious.
The Japanese dictionary defines 氣 Ki (10 strokes) as: something unseen; atmosphere; air, breath, or steam, vital energy (universal or personal connected with the breath); spirit, mind, heart, nature, disposition, motivation, intention, feelings, ambience, mood; In the view of Zhu Xi and other Neo-Confucians, the material force constantly reproduced. Ki consists of breath with rice (rice in Japan is something used as a synonym for people).
So, simply put, the word (of 2 kanji 靈氣) ReiKi can possibly be defined as a sacred energy of the Universe (of the Heavens and the Earth) which infuses and sustains all life (Universal Life Force Energy). When this energy flows uninterrupted, there is balance and harmony within and around us and we experience a sense of well-being.
Usually we are not aware that we live in a world of energy (energy of the Universe that nourishes and maintains all living things) because we don’t see it, like the air, so we don’t pay attention and we take it for granted. But without air how long can we survive? Without the energy of the Universe we wouldn’t be here. Thanks to Reiki – the energy of the Universe – and the air, we are here alive, breathing.
As to another meaning, in Japanese Reiki is also a common noun which means a mysterious feeling people experience deep in the mountains or shrines and when they cannot find the words to describe such a subtle, transcendental, mystical sensation (feelings), they choose to say: “Oh, I feel Reiki.”

Reiki is a non-dualistic (monadic) healing energy 

Reiki is not a belief system (religion) at all

Since Reiki is a Japanese term and not a belief system (religion), it is open to be combined with any religions, and can be defined by you according to your personal spiritual or religious beliefs and views. You may find Reiki equal to the energy of: the Creator, the Source, One Great, Holy Spirit, Healing Love of Jesus, etc. What really matters is to let this energy uplift and cultivate your spirituality, help you to re-remember your true nature, see things as they truly are.
Gradually, with continued practice, Reiki can guide you to higher levels of mental clarity, harmonious physical and spiritual wholeness that opens up your true disposition: inner peace, unconditional love, wisdom and compassion for all life. That is to say that you become the embodiment of the infinite light and love you are, the harmony and peace you are, the gratefulness, compassion and loving kindness you are, which you manifest with your full essence.

Reiki works on all levels:
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual;
individually and globally

Reiki refers to the inexhaustible energy of the Universe, which cannot be defined, measured or confined, so many people who use the term of Reiki are usually referring to a system of natural hands-on healing (Reiki Ryoho) by means of channeling the energy of the Universe. Practitioner’s hands are placed just above or lightly touch the body of the recipient, though the healing can also be done distantly without being physically present in one and the same place. This hands-on healing was founded by the Japanese man Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his experience, dedication to make it available for the good of humankind so that anyone may be blessed with this heavenly gift – the oneness of the spirit, soul, mind and body – and heaven-sent well-being may be realized in one’s life.
Usui’s “Reiki Ryoho” is a unique and original art of mind/body improvement which is based on the power of the universe; a person first becomes healthy and then the soundness of thought and the joys of life are enhanced. It is a two-folded practice: therapeutic (healing) practice and spiritual practice – the art of spiritual awaking (a path to self-realization). At its core Reiki is first and foremost a spiritual practice, meant for personal enhancement and personal enlightenment. This means that it is more than just to heal or cure physical problems, one does not have to be physically ill to experience all the benefits. In its essence Reiki treatments can help and work on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It is THE ART TO IMPROVE MIND AND BODY (not body and then mind). Mind always comes first, before body.
There are many examples from different studies on the mind-matter interaction and the mind-body connection. We already know that human intention can have a direct effect on our physical material world in multiple ways. Studies within quantum physics also illustrate this fact. Human intention is able to actually collapse the quantum wave function.
Our thoughts and feelings influence the chemistry that regulates much of our health – how we feel – for better or worse, they have a direct effect on our biology and impact on our attitude/behavior – our choices of action which are very important especially now in these changing times because they constantly create or disrupt our peace, happiness, self-security and well-being. It is through deepening our mind/heart/spirit intelligence, coherence and connection that humanity will be able to shift from separation to cooperation resulting in higher solutions to our personal and global problems.

“With an impure mind one creates illnesses and sufferings.

With a pure mind one creates well-being and happiness.


Every individual’s energy affects the collective field environment. The means each person’s emotions and intentions generate an energy that affects the field. A first step in diffusing societal stress in the global field is for each of us to take personal responsibility for our own energies. We can do this by increasing our personal coherence and raising our vibratory rate, which helps us become more conscious of the thoughts, feelings, and attitudes that we are feeding the field each day. We have a choice in every moment to take to heart the significance of intentionally managing our energies. This is the free will or local freedom that can create global cohesion” Dr. Deborah Rozman, the President and co-CEO of Quantum Intech, Inc. – the parent company of HeartMath LLC.
The Universe is immaterial – mental and spiritual. Live, and enjoy.
Richard Conn Henry Professor of Physics at the Johns Hopkins University (quote from scientific journal “Nature”).

Personal view on Reiki energy by Sensei Hyakuten Inamoto:

• Deeply penetrating warmth is typical of Reiki energy. 

• Reiki energy penetrates deep into the body for deep, soothing 
comfort and relaxation. 

• Reiki energy is more like “Far Infrared Rays” discovered by NASA, 
the safest, most beneficial natural light wave…
• Far infrared rays are powerful detoxifier shown to destroy cancer 
and viral cells without harming the surrounding healthy cells.

Reiki Therapy – Alternative Medicine
which is very compatible with other modalities of healing

These days Reiki is widely offered in the wellness sphere. As a form of alternative medicine or complementary therapy it is successfully used in medical centres, hospitals, hospices, wellness and spa centres all over the world, especially in North and South America, Canada, the UK, Mexico, Australia and Europe. It is commonly defined as energy healing or energy medicine that aims to restore and activate the natural flow of energy within the body, remove blocks.. it is similar to acupuncture or acupressure. Reiki is a therapy based on the biofield, or a type of energy field that “regulates everything from our cellular function to our nervous system” (so it works on the cellular level of tissue, muscle, organs and bones…)
Reiki brings forward the wisdom of the body itself or the bodily memory of healthy and harmonious functioning.
Reiki sessions can boost the wholesome recovery and help people become more balanced physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
By balancing and improving the flow of energy within and around the body, Reiki can:
• produce a profound estate of relaxation;
• alleviate depression, anxiety, sleep disorders;
• reduces all different types of stress, pain and other symptoms of illnesses;
• helps to cope with difficulties;
• speeds healing;
• increases immune system;
• improves overall wellbeing and provides a better quality of life to the individual.
Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. It can be used alongside with other conventional or complementary treatment modalities including any type of massage, CranioSacral therapy, sound therapy, etc.
Conditions that Reiki has been used in to help treat include cancer – it increases the defense in oncology patients to reduce the adverse effects of chemotherapy; heart disease, anxiety, autism, fatigue syndromes, infertility, chronic pain, Cron’s disease, infertility, Parkinson’s disease, depression, digestive problems, neurodegenerative disorders…
Over more than 20 years ago, Reiki was brought into the operating rooms of some of America’s top surgeons, including Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Sheldon Marc Feldman.
Reiki is successfully used in hospital Emergency Rooms, Pre-Op, Operating Room, Post Op, Oncology, Cardiology (including heart surgery), Orthopedics, and Internal Medicine as it is observed that it helps individuals recover faster and has a very positive effect on the usual postoperative complications.
Dr. Sheldon Marc Feldman and Raven Keyes Medical Reiki International LLC have joined forces by working together to make it possible for a very important medical study to be conducted in order to prove the efficacy of using Reiki in the high-tech reality of modern medicine.

“Everything is Energy” by Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.
stem cell biologist Internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit

On the earth stands shaman with her arms raised against the sky. From the heaven the rain comes down with lifesaving energy consisting of three part: light, love, wisdom/power. The shaman acts as a channel (channeling this energy down to all people of the Earth). The Reiki teacher is the channel when he or she initiates students, and the practitioner is the shaman when he or she channels this spiritual energy to the people treated”. From the book by Robert N. Fueston «Reiki: Transmissions of Light, Volume 1- The History and System of Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho».
“Universal Life Energy” “Reiki is God Power” by Hawayo Takata Sensei.


In our daily life all of us encounter situations when someone shows discontent, anger, irritation or disrespect towards us. It can be both closest people, family members, our friends, partners, colleagues or complete strangers in a store, metro, in the street and especially during rush hours.

Many people believe that discourtesy or anger must be dealt with in the same way, that is to respond in the same language with the opponent, otherwise (kindly) they will not understand. Unfortunately, this pattern of behavior is maintained in many families, at work, in society (aggression to aggression, quid pro quo). And if a person responds politely, with loving kindness, this will be perceived as the person’s weakness, and won’t be treated with respect.
Most of the time people react habitually (subconsciously), or justify themselves attributing it to genetics, character, psychological type, zodiac sign, etc. In fact, it is much more difficult to get out of the comfort zone, change, develop and cultivate new qualities in oneself, learn to react/respond to life and any conflict (trouble / distressing) situation more consciously, go beyond the boundaries of one’s usual way of thinking, one’s habitual reactions and emotions (patterns of behavior), maintain the state of inner harmony and peace, become attentive and mindful, begin to look at any current event and situation with spiritual eyes — with the eyes of universal wisdom, light and unconditional love — that is, from the state of Reiki.
The more often during the day we practice the Reiki state (with people, animals, plants, food, drinks), the more stable, placid and clear our mind (psyche) will be, and the more efficiently we will be able to cope with any difficulties / problems, complex tasks, stressful situations. The less we will feed the collective field with negativity (condemnation, blame, criticism, destructive emotions, unconscious actions) and false beliefs, the more we will create prosperity/well-being for ourselves and all living beings. The purer and wider our consciousness will be and the more open our heart will be, which will shine with all possible edges, reflecting the entire depth of universal wisdom and the light of its eternal soul, dispelling any illusions, transforming any conflicts and seeding the collective field with unconditional love. And then every tough life situation or task will become a blessing – another opportunity for us to realize our spiritual presence here and now, to shine even more (stronger and further).
Therefore, when someone is being angry at you, screaming, cursing, making ignorant speech, insulting or exhibiting any other rude (negative in your opinion) behavior, first of all, be conscious — spiritually present, do not identify yourself with what is said, do not let the other person’s reality (state/condition) become yours, keep neutrality, serenity, and then you can understand more clearly the essence of what is happening: perhaps this person has a bad mood or doesn’t feel well, perhaps they are not satisfied with their life, may have problems within family, at work, or maybe they are not happy with the financial situation or their self-realization; they might be going through some kind of crisis, serious illness, it may be anything …

Find any possible way to demonstrate and share with them the presence of loving kindness and compassion, the limitless light of your universal soul. Indeed, many people unconsciously continue to live in darkness (in negativity), considering this the norm of life though in any situation we can serve as an example, gently (without condemning, blame) touch that person with the light of Reiki in response in order to remind and awake their own light and transform negative energy into the vibrations of universal love. Perhaps, with their ignorant behavior, these people show how much their life is shrouded in darkness of ignorance (lack of knowledge), and thus they ask to light them up, remind them of another or the true reality of existence, help dissolve their illusions and that darkness.
No one, except (for) ourselves, can hurt or make us someone else according to someone else’s reality. When we realize our true nature, the essence of existence, no one and nothing can limit or change our true nature. No one and nothing can make a negative impact on us. On the contrary, being spiritually present, we can influence everything around us with our vibrations, the field of our light and love; we can transform any darkness, cruelty, aggression, pain, suffering and callousness of humanity.

Act with full involvement, attention/mindfulness and awareness, in alignment with your true nature, act from a state of peace and harmony, loving kindness and unconditional love, wisdom and generosity of the Universe (that is, Reiki), so that at every moment of this beautiful life you can make a choice to ILLUMINATE WITH THE ETERNAL AND INFINITE LIGHT OF YOUR UNIVERSAL SOUL AND HEART ALL LIVING BEINGS and OUR ENTIRE PLANET EARTH.

Stomach Reiki healing during driving.

One afternoon we were driving home in our car after a beautiful hike in Oregon, USA. My husband said that he was not feeling well– that he was experiencing a very sharp pain in his stomach. There was no place to pull the car over at that moment on the busy freeway. So I proposed to do a Reiki healing as he was driving. I asked my mother, who was sitting behind him, to also do a distant healing at the same time. We asked Reiki energy to heal my husband the highest way is possible here and now. The road was smooth but fast, it was difficult to position my arms. But I kept following my intuition. Me and my mother were continuously channelling Reiki energy including our eyes. After 7 minutes, he remarked that he felt much better!The pain was gone and he was happy to drive us home for another one hour.

Passenger Reiki healing during my long distance flight

During my long distance flight from Amsterdam to Portland June, 2016, I heard an announcement asking if there were any doctors on the airplane. I felt that perhaps I might help with a Reiki healing. So I approached one of stewards and politely offered my help. She replied that there was already a medical doctor helping the passenger and invited me to return to my seat. But I felt a persistent intuition that perhaps the medical doctor might not be able to help. It was such a strong message in my mind that after 10 minutes, I approached another stewardess to explain to her about the Komyo ReikiDo Method. She became very interested but said first to wait on what doctor will say, and then if doctor could not help, they would call me.
