What is 'Reiki'?



The word Reiki means free passage of Universal Life Force energy. Reiki is a Japanese word. In the Chinese character system, Reiki is Leiki.  Both Reiki and Leiki originate in Tibet.

The syllable rei in Japanese means spirit, ghost and soul.  In Chinese, the syllable lei means subtle influences, the force, ethereal, supernatural power.  Rei can be interpreted as "free passage".

The syllable ki means life force energy (as in akido).  In Chinese, life force energy is called chi, in India, prana.  There are many names for life force energy; each culture has its own.
