2. (verb) A process of passively channelling the basic energy that underlies material existence (somewhat comparable to the concepts of chi and prana) into a recipient or recipients to facilitate their self-healing and wellbeing.
Reiki is distinguished from other healing energy techniques because practitioners are taught through a ritualistic attunement process involving supernatural entities, and because the energy has its own intelligence.
Modern Reiki was developed in Japan by a man called Mikao Usui, but its true origins have been clouded by politics and religious bigotry.

3. The force?
"My ally is the force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it; makes it grow. Its' energy surrounds us and binds us . . . You must feel the force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock; everywhere..." (Yoda)
