Reiki is a Japanese system of energy healing that works on all levels of our being; spiritual, mental, emotional, or physical. What makes Reiki work are the symbols of Reiki. Each of the symbols correspond to the different levels, or frequency, of our being. The word Reiki has so many meanings layered into the Japanese kanji it is written in. The most common translations are divinely guided life force energy or divinely guided chi. Reiki is applied both in the energetic field and also directly to the body, depending on where the greatest need may be. A normal Reiki session directs energy to all 7 of the major chakras allowing for a complete healing to take place.
