Reiki Healing

“Reiki is a Japanese healing technique used to help reduce stress, promote relaxation and overall healing.”

The word Reiki is formed using two Japanese words – “Rei” which means God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power, and “Ki” which is life force energy. In essence, Reiki is actually spiritually guided life force energy that treats the whole person (body, emotions, mind, and spirit), creating many beneficial effects. These positive effects include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Reiki is administered via hands-on healing based on the belief that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If our life force energy is high, then we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. Reiki works with other medical/therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Reiki use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development, therefore, is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds and while Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God/The Source, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion or belief rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony toward others. Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony.

Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki founder:

Dr. Mikao Usui was born on August 18th, 1865 in Kyoto, Japan. He came from a fairly wealthy Buddhist family, who encouraged him to study, both academically and physically.  Whilst finishing his studies at a traditional Japanese Tendai Buddhist Monastery, Dr. Usui also mastered Samurai swordsmanship and Kiko, the Japanese form of Chi Kung. Dr. Usui was interested in different types of medicine, energy movement and religions, reading widely on all subjects. Dr. Usui was looking to find a way to heal himself and others, using his hands, that didn’t deplete his own energy levels. He devoted many years searching for a system of this type.  His open-minded approach towards other belief systems and religions is why Reiki is accessible to everyone.  It has no religious attachments.

Dr. Usui was looking to find a way to heal himself and others, using his hands, that didn’t deplete his own energy levels. He devoted many years searching for a system of this type.  His open-minded approach towards other belief systems and religions is why Reiki is accessible to everyone.  It has no religious attachments.

As part of his search, Dr. Usui traveled to China and the West to study their medicines and disciplines.  He undertook a great many different types of work, eventually leading him back to Buddhism.  Dr. Usui became a Tendai Buddhist monk and lived in a monastery near Mount Kurama, where he continued his studies.

It was whilst he was living at the monastery, that Dr. Usui decided to attend Isyu Guo, a 21-day training course, to seek enlightenment.  This involved living in a cave on Mount Kurama and fasting, meditating and praying for the 21 days.  It is said that his time passed uneventfully.  However, on the morning of the 21st day, Dr. Usui experienced a mystical event ‘seeing’ ancient Sanskrit symbols, which he acknowledged would help him develop the healing system he was looking for.  After this event, Dr. Usui set up a clinic in Kyoto, where he began to heal and teach people.

The success of his clinic allowed Dr. Usui to travel all over Japan, taking his Reiki with him.  As well as teaching others how to heal themselves. He also offered healing sessions at a relatively inexpensive price or even for free, which meant anyone could receive healing.

Dr. Usui’s main teachings were very focused on how to heal oneself, first and foremost, which continues today in the First Degree of Reiki (Reiki One).  His belief being that to be able to heal others, you first need to have healed yourself.  By the time of his death on the March 9th, 1926, Dr. Usui had trained 16 Reiki Masters, one of whom was Dr. Chujiro Hayashi.  This would guarantee that Dr. Usui’s healing system would live on, and it certainly has.
