What is Reiki?
Rei – Spiritual Wisdom
The word Rei means universal. The word Rei as it is used in Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge of spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from the sacred feminine balance the energy of the sacred masculine. Knowledge of the esoteric or supernatural realm allows for connection to God-Consciousness ‘Christ Consciousness,’ if used in the name of Jesus Christ (aka Yeshua.) Reiki understands each person, down to their molecular, atom, and quantum level. It knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows what to do to heal them. Reiki is the flow of energy, ‘Qi,’ or energy, descending into the practitioner and healing all participants with special ‘light codes,’ or symbols.
Ki – The Life Force
Ki means the same as Qi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit, and Mana in Hawaiian. It has been given many other names by the various cultures that have been aware of it.
Ki is life force, or the essence of all life. The essence of all life is electromagnetic in nature. It is also a vital life force for the survival of all organisms on the planet. This is the nonphysical energy that animates all living things. As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, the life force departs and the electromagnetic energy returns to the life force, whence it originated.
If your life force or electromagnetic current is bogged down or low, there is a restriction in the energy flow, causing vulnerability to disease and illness. When the life force is high, the body, mind, Spirit is in homeostasis and ‘Ki’ flows naturally and smoothly through all meridians of the body, causing wellness. Life force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and also is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts, and spiritual life.
The Asian culture place great importance on the life force or what they call Chi ‘Qi.’ They have studied it for thousands of years and have discovered that there are different kinds of Chi. The (Yellow Emperors’ Classic of Internal Medicine) which is over 4,000 years old, lists thirty-two different kinds of Chi.
Ki is used by martial artists in their physical training and mental development. It is used in meditative breathing exercises called Pranayama, and by the shamans of all cultures for divination, spiritual awareness, manifestation and healing. Ki is the nonphysical energy used by all healers. Ki is present all around us and can be accumulated and guided by the mind. Christians call it the ‘Holy Spirit,’ because it is inside you and all around you. When it can flow through the body freely, it can produce ‘healing miracles,’ just as Jesus lay his hands on the sick and heal them.
‘The Kingdom of God is inside you and all around you, not made in buildings of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood and I am there, lift a stone and you will find me there.’ (The Gospel of Thomas)
‘Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy’
Reiki is the use and manipulation of the electromagnetic energy of the world around us and within us, to heal the electromagnetic field of people, animals, places, things, and even the past. It is Christ Consciousness called ‘Rei’ that guides the life force ‘Holy Spirit,’ called Ki in the practice that The Soul Intention calls Reiki. We use Reiki in the name of Jesus Christ, so that the client can release their electromagnetic fog and be free of the karmic burden that comes from sin.
Therefore, Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life force energy. This is a meaningful interpretation of the word Reiki. Reiki ‘pure energy/Christ’ guides itself with its own wisdom ‘Sophia,’ and works together to heal the clients needs. Reiki is unresponsive to the direction or ‘Ego’ of the practitioner. It is not the practitioner who heals, but the Holy Spirit working through the practitioner in the name of Jesus Christ (aka Yeshua).
