Sure, the energy that fuels the entire universe may be mysterious, but it’s not complicated or out of your reach.
Reiki isn’t beyond us. It works through us. And working with it is one of the most empowering things you’ll ever learn to do.
First up, Reiki is a Japanese word, so let’s break it down:
“Rei” – meaning mysterious, transcendental spirit. The Soul. The Sacred. That which possesses an infinite power.
“Ki” – light and energy, something unseen, atmosphere, vital energy, vapour. Breath. The energy of the entire universe.
It’s called Reiki because as a practice it was formally discovered and established by a Buddhist man, Mikao Usui, in 1920’s Japan.
Look beyond the surface though, and you’ll realise that every culture has a word for “Ki”. It is “Prana” in Sanskrit, “Chi” in Chinese and described as Life Force or “Divine Energy” in English.
Reiki exists in all things. We are Reiki. It is the ‘Universal Life Force’ that surrounds and sustains us all. It is that creative intelligence that keeps us breathing, allows our body and everything on earth to grow.
You may recognise Reiki as hands-on-healing. And while yes, Reiki does involve channeling universal energy into ourselves and other people, it’s so much more than that.
The Reiki Principles offer a way of living your life in a present and empowered way once you remember the truth of who you really are. You want to know the best part? Every person is born with the power to heal themselves, it’s just a case of learning how.
And I’ve got news for you. You are always plugged into the power that fuels the Universe, but you’re most likely not conscious of it, which means you can’t transform it. Learning the practice of Reiki means you become aware of the flow of energy within and around your body.
With this increased self-awareness, you recognise:
- You have more power over your life than you imagine.
- Taking 100% responsibility for your experience of life will set you free.
- You do not have to play the role of victim, perpetrator or rescuer to feel worthy of love.
- You can receive and give in a more balanced way.
- You do have a life purpose and have an important role to play.
- Healing yourself is a birthright and daily practice which you can learn.
- You can live from the heart, in pure presence, appreciation and compassion for all (including yourself).
I like to tell my clients and students that each day we are given 100% of our own life force “energy” and it’s our responsibility to learn how to manage it. We can invest our energy into things that are beneficial and empowering, and like money, if you are making a good investment, you will get a good return. Alternatively when we invest in things that deplete our energy like worry, stress, fear, and blame, we’re essentially making a bad investment, and it’s little wonder we become drained when we do.
Never had a Reiki session before?
A Reiki session gives you an opportunity to get your tank of life force energy “filled up”. The healing energy allows you to gain clarity and awareness of how you are managing your own energy and then assists you in transforming any blocks, stoppages, limiting beliefs or old emotions that you may be holding within that are keeping you stuck.
Reiki sessions are different each time, as the energy gives the person exactly what they need in that moment depending on their current state.
Oh, and you don’t have to have something “wrong” with you to get a Reiki treatment. Wherever you are you can plug into a source that replenishes you with love, grace, peace and who doesn’t want more of that good stuff?

Would you like to learn Reiki?
In case you’re wondering, I believe that learning Reiki is beneficial for everyone, not just the people who want to become practitioners. The Reiki journey is profoundly transformative. Which is why I adore teaching it so much. Once you become aware of the creative life-force that exists within you and start to work with it on a conscious level, your experience of life will totally change in the most amazing ways.
I offer Reiki training from Level I right up to Mastership.
Students who complete Level I, report feeling:
Less Reactive (the things that used to trigger them don’t anymore)
More trust (in themselves, as well as life)
A deeper connection to true self and nature

And continuing onto Level 2 training, my students report:
Balance and harmony between the logic and creative/intuitive minds
Deeper and more intelligent relationship with feelings and emotions
