What is "Energy"?
Just the same way batteries or electricity allows flashlights and appliances to work, there is a natural energy that allows us to live, to grow, and create our lives. In some cultures, "energy" is called "chi" or "ki". In our Western world, we can think of it as a "life-force energy", some may call it the soul or spirit, and it encompasses the idea of something essentially good.
Reiki is a technique, not based upon any particular religion or sect, but rather a belief that we are congruent with the life force energy "ki" that flows through us, the universe, and everything around us.
