What is Reiki? This is a Japanese technique which helps stress reduction and relaxation and also promotes healing. Reiki is done by “laying on hands” and is based on the fact that “life force energy” flows through. If someones “life force energy” is low, then we have a higher risk of feeling sick or stressed. If it’s hight, then we are more inclined to be happy and healthy. Reiki can be taught and over time is a great tool to use in reducing our stress levels and raising our vibration and energy.

During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Reiki Ideals to the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five prinicples of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki. Their purpose is to help people realize that healing of the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy. It must also include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.
