Reiki is a Japanese form of meditation and an alternative method of healing developed nearly 100 years ago in Japan by its founder Mikao Usui. Reiki is derived from two Japanese words “Rei” means “spiritual power” and “Ki” means “energy”. Put together, Reiki is translated as the spiritual energy of all life force present in all living beings.

Reiki symbols are used as teaching tools for Reiki students. These Reiki symbols do not have any special power themselves. It is the practitioner’s focus on his energy that energizes these symbols.
