Reiki is a Japanese non-invasive healing modality. It is based on shifting ones energy (Qi) to encourage mental, emotional, physical, spiritual healing and personal transformation.
The word Reiki is made up of two words REI, which means THE HIGHER POWER and KI meaning LIFE FORCE ENERGY (Qi or Prana).
Reiki was discovered in the middle of the 19th century by Mikao Usui. Usui travelled to the Holy Mountain of Kurama. It was there where he decided to fast and meditate in solitude for 21 days hoping to gain contact with a higher level of consciousness.
Nothing unusual happened until the last day, when he saw a shining light moving towards him. It became larger and larger until it touched him in the center of his forehead. He saw millions of colored bubbles of blue, lilac, pink and all the colors of a rainbow. A great white light appeared, and he saw the little known reiki symbols glowing in shiny gold. This was the birth of the Usui system of reiki as revealed from the Buddhist Sutras.
In the following days he thought out the Reiki Principles:
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will be grateful.
Just for today, I will be honest.
Just for today, I will be kind to all.
Usui returned to Kyoto and looked for people in search of the true light, people who were ill and oppressed and who were longing to be healed. This was the beginning of a new part of his life, which he spent travelling around Japan teaching reiki and healing others.
Usui is buried in a Kyoto temple with the story of his life written on his gravestone. One of Usui's closest collaborators was Dr. Chijiro Hayashi (second Reiki Grand Master) who ran a private reiki clinic until 1940. This is where Hawayo Takata first received reiki treatments that would lead her to study with Dr. Hayashi. Mrs. Takata returned to Hawaii after her studies and was made a Reiki Master by Dr. Hayashi when he visited the Island in 1928. At the time of his death in 1941, she succeeded him as Grand Master. She first began to train Reiki Masters herself when she was about seventy four years old. On December 11, 1980 Hawayo Takata passed away leaving 22 Masters in the USA and Canada.
Reiki energy goes where it is needed, and not necessarily as intended or wished. Sometimes you can have a set intention during a reiki session however often that dissipates and something profound happens. It is hard to put into words, the feeling one gets when source is felt but it is miraculous, it is a knowing that a shift has taken place within you and you know healing is taking place. You feel connected to your source like never before.
As a heightened state of relaxation occurs the more Universal Life Force Energy enters the body. As this radiant reiki energy moves through and around you it releases blockages and disturbances in the mind, body and spirit.
Reiki is profoundly effective for pre and postoperative care. Reiki enhances the body's natural ability to heal. It is often used by nurses to help patients come out of anesthesia.
Reiki promotes a sense of being, centeredness and grounding. Reiki can be used as a general wellness therapy to improve the quality of your life. Reiki is about moving energy, energy that might be holding you back, keeping you stuck from making decisions or changes in your life.
