I have a lot of people that ask me to explain Reiki to them in tangible terms. Many times I have tried to go about it talking about God's Universal Healing Energy and the Science behind it. Often times this type of explanation leaves people bewildered and needing to “see it to believe it”.
Having thought on this subject more though, there is a much more simpler and perceptible way of relaying this.
You know when a child falls down and scrapes their knee? When mommy comes to kiss it and make it feel better? THAT is Reiki.... in it’s simplest form. For IT is LOVE.
