In our ancient past, symbolism has always been used to interpret hidden meaning.
There exists two special symbols that translates into a basic universal principle:
"All living things possess reiki."
For those who are not familiar to the Japanese language structure.
The Kanji characters play a vital role into understanding the meaning behind a word.
Awareness of the difference in symbols brings depth and clarity to the both practitioner and client.
Have you ever noticed the words for weather, sickness and wellness greeting in Japanese end in Ki?
This is not a coincidence..
It is because the Kanji 気 means energy or active life force.
Weather - tenki
Sickness - byouki
How are you? - Genki
All of the above words incorporate energy in some type of form.
The Kanji for Rei 霊 means spirit or soul.
Therefore Reiki is simply spirit energy or spirit life force.
Since all living things possess reiki, it is up to the healer to understand how to channel the energy effectively.
However, the goal of reiki is more than its symbolism.
It's a beautiful process of learning and appreciating the life force energy existing in living all things.
