It more accurately means higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness. Essentially it is the wisdom that comes from God or the Higher Self that knows and understands the cause of all problems and how to solve or heal them. "Ki" is the universal life force that animates all living things. It is what makes your heart beat, digestion work, blood flow through your veins and lungs' breath. It is what tells the plants to sprout in the spring and the leaves to fall in the winter. Anything that is living has "Ki" (in Chinese this is referred to as "Chi"); plants, animals, humans and the universe itself.
