Rei = Sentient Source energy
Ki= Life force energy
According to the Spring 2010 Reiki News Magazine, in an article titled “Living from the Heart of Reiki” by William Lee Rand, Reiki is more than simple “ki” or universal life force energy that is guided by Higher Consciousness.
Reiki helps us begin to remember and grow in remembrance of our true selves.
The Japanese know of many kinds of ki, or life energy. Each has its own vibration and purpose.
Some kinds of ki:
Genki: describes healthy ki
Byoki: unhealthy ki
Ki ga shimazu is disappointment
Ki no oku is generosity
Ki gae is self-respect
Ki maek is communication
Ki yum is enthusiasm
There are many more kinds of ki but these are just a few examples.
Reiki is a special kind of ki.
Rei = spirit of higher consciousness
Reiki is pure, Divine Love.
The kanji for Reiki translates into:
The life energy of higher consciousness, or life energy guided by higher consciousness.
Come to the next Saturday Reiki Meetup and share the experience of Reiki. We begin with a meditation intended to teach principles of Reiki, then practice group Reiki on each person. Snacks are available during and after the sharing.
I hope to see many of you there!
