Often pronounced as “ray-key” in the West, Reiki is comprised of two Japanese words: Rei, meaning Universal; and Ki, which is Life Force Energy. Of course, there are variations to this definition because the English translations are not exact.

But based on Zee’s, Reiki means: Universal Life Force Energy.

What is Reiki?

It’s a non-invasive healing technique whereby you channel the glorious universal life force energy through you and then to your focus. This may be yourself, somebody else, an animal, or even an object.

This universal energy isn’t chaotic and happenstance; it’s intelligent, so once you’re able to channel it, it will go where you intended and do what’s necessary for its healing or greatest good.

One’s hands will be integral tools however, they’re not necessarily needed. Reiki can be done with or without physical touch to stimulate your own, or someone or something else’s natural ability to heal. In saying that, using your hands helps you get the feel for the energy. It really is tangible!

The 5 Reiki Principles

Universal Life Force Energy itself has always been around, which means no earthly being created it. It’s not fair to give someone ‘founding’ rights to Reiki because we’ve all been tapping into it, in one way or another, for as long as history seems to show. However, it did take a human to understand, document, and convey a specific set of teachings about it. In Zee’s lineage, this happens to be a Japanese doctor called Mikao Usui aka Usui Sensei (Master/Teacher Usui).

The principles of Reiki are quite simple at first glance. But to actually follow the principles and live your life by them, is much harder than many may think! The following Reiki Principles (or Precepts) are taken directly from Usui Sensei’s Reiki handbook:

  • Do not be angry
  • Do not worry
  • Be grateful
  • Work with diligence
  • Be kind to every living thing
Mikao Usui

The secret art of inviting happiness – The miraculous medicine for all diseases

At least for today: Do not be angry, Do not worry, Be grateful, Work with diligence, Be kind to every living thing. Every morning and evening, join your hands in meditation and pray with your heart. State in your mind and chant with your mouth. For improvement of mind and body.

Usui Reiki Healing Method The founder, Mikao Usui

Zee strongly suggests that you digest and make them part of your life! As a side note: We don’t believe Usui Sensei is saying he ‘founded’ Reiki by signing off as “The Founder”, he was simply stating he’s the founder of HIS Reiki healing methods and these five principles are unbelievably effective if you can truly grasp onto them… It truly is a very rewarding state of being to live in.
