Reiki is Universal Energy.
The practitioner receives an attunement from a master that allows opens her body and hands up to the healing power of the Universe. The practitioner’s hands guide her to focus the energy where healing is needed. This can be done in person or “by distance” as energy is not limited by time nor space. The healing takes place on the spiritual/emotional level as well as the physical.
Throughout time, healers have figured out ways to harness Universal energy or, after a diligent apprenticeship, a teacher passed healing gifts down to the student. Rei-ki shares Qigong’s roots in ancient Taoism and Japanese Buddhism and Shintoism, but the energy is transferred from the teacher to the student by a relatively easy initiation (Reiju) versus long years of practice.
Jesus the Christ was known for his ability to perform healing miracles with his hands.
