How Does Reiki Work
The word Reiki is actually two words: Rei (ray) and ki (kee). Rei means universal life force, and ki is the individualized aspect of the same universal energy with our bodies. When these two aspects come together healing occurs because there is balance and harmony.
Reiki automatically flows through the practitioner's hands and into the body whenever we touch, or bring our hands close to another person's body or our own.
It is not necessary to believe in Reiki for Reiki to work, any more than we have to believe in water to get wet. Reiki is Divine Love in action, and it works automatically to relieve pain and discomfort and to restore well-being..
