There are many different stories, some documented and some fantastical, about how Dr. Usui developed Reiki. The word Reiki loosely translates from Japanese as “universal life energy.” Sometimes the word Reiki is used for the healing system, and sometimes it is used to refer to the energy itself. To avoid confusion, I typically use the term Reiki for the method and simply use “energy” or something similar to refer to the universal life energy that the Reiki system uses.

In hands-on sessions, Reiki practitioners often enhance the experience with other relaxing elements; aromatherapy oils, incense, music, room decor and more.

I’d like to bring a little of the same enhancement to distance Reiki. It’s explained in greater detail in my upcoming e-book Sending Stones Reiki*

Distance Reiki is now available through the TaoCraft Tarot ko-fi shop. Purchase a session & get the instant download containing instructions for scheduling and participating in your distance Reiki session plus a FREE preview chapter from the Sending Stones Reiki ebook.*
