Reiki is a Japanese word, meaning,’Universal-Energy’. Reiki consists of two words ‘Rei’ and ‘ki’.’Rei’ means , ‘Universal’ and ‘ki’ means, ‘Energy’.This energy will be flowing through each one of us right from our birth. Due to several reasons, the energy flow through us gets reduced causing diseases, sickness, inefficiency, etc. After a person undergoes Reiki initiation/attunement, the Reiki Master-Teacher cleanses his energy channels, thereby, enhancing the energy flow through that person. Then, the person becomes a Reiki channel. On becoming a Reiki channel, he can use the universal energy i.e., Reiki energy to heal himself and others.
Basically, Reiki is an Indian technique of touch-healing that was being practiced in the southern part of India.
During 500B.C., Gouthama Buddha used to touch-heal the sufferers. Through him, this healing system went to Tibet and from there, to the lost continent of Atlanta. It is believed that Reiki was lost to the world when Atlantis sank into the sea after a catastrophe.
The touch-healing system was also known to have been practiced by Jesus Christ and other saints. It remained dormant for a few centuries thereafter.
Subsequently, in the 19th century, Dr.Mikayo Usui of Koyoto city of Japan, who was working as a teacher in a university, meditated for 21 long days on top of Mt.Kurama. Thereafter, he got Saturi (self-realization) and acquired the power of touch-healing (Reiki).
This healing system was continued by Dr.Chujiro Hayashi and subsequently by Mrs.Hawayo Takata of the USA. Today, this healing system is very popular across the world with several lakhs of Reiki Practitioners and Masters existing in various countries.
