What is consider Reiki to be? Through intuition and meditation, we all are capable of promoting God’s energy for the greater good. Reiki is only a name given to such energy by Dr. Usui about 100 years ago. I have taken the course myself to become a Reiki master, and I can say that that is only a technique that Dr. Usui created to deal with the great energy of the source. However, reading many of the holy books from older times of China or India to the more recent Christian bible, all the enlightened beings were promoting such techniques. It is safe to say that Reiki or any other name given, existed for as long as humanity was in existence.
