A very brief over-veiw of Reiki

A brief overview of the practice, and philosophy of Reiki:

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word, a practice, and a spiritual discipline. The word Reiki means universal life force energy. It is a form of laying on of hands healing, as well as being a way of life. It is a mystery tradition that despite modern device can only be learned through a master (teacher, or sensei). It is popular now to be attuned in mass attunements, distance attunements, and within a very short amount of time. Some people are even offering weekend or twenty four hour master-hood programs. Any thing that has to do with these false teachings and practices are not real reiki. a true reiki practitioner is one who went through a lengthy period of formal training, and has undergone one or more in person attunements directly from a master teacher who physically laid their hands on them during the reiju (the attunement process, or ritual initiation). A reiki practitioner uses various techniques, meditations, visualizations, advanced prayers, and power symbols to direct or wield the flow of reiki energy in order to heal, nourish, balance, attune, and bless the one receiving the treatment. When one is willing to relax and accept this energy to flow unrestricted through out the entire five fold soul being ( body (both the physical and the subtle energetic etheric bodies), mind, heart, spirit, and imagination), then healing can occur. In addition to the physical benefits which include meeting any touch deficit, and enhancing or accelerating the bodies own natural immune system, there are many spiritual benefits, including enhancing ones feeling or experience of connection to God and the entire universe, increased extra sensory perceptions, enhanced spiritual gifts, a grater metaphysical awareness and a newer, broader, metaphysical experience of reality. Reiki is different from ki or chi (regular energy which makes of our physical reality) in that is intelligent spiritual energy from God which flows through all things, permeates all existence, animates, and inspires all living things manifesting the physical energy which manifests the physical universe. This divine reiki energy can not cause harm, will not manifest anything negative, and is without any harmful or dangerous side effects. It is a divine energy that has been stamped or imprinted by God with the frequency of healing, balance, nourishment, and wholeness. If ki was the body then reiki would be the spirit inhabiting, surrounding, and animating that body. While ki can be used to cause harm, to hurt, and to damage as seen in the martial arts, reiki can not manifest anything harmful, and can not be used to cause harm. Reiki is supernatural, natural, cosmological, and metaphysical all at the same time. Reiki is not a religion but a spiritual discipline that cuts through all religious barriers.


A brief history of reiki:

Since the dawn of mankind, God gave to us the gift of healing energy. Priests, and shamans (medicine people) from every culture and religion used a variety of methods both sacred, and mundane to become vessels for this healing power to flow through. In the Spirit-Hand tradition which draws largely on celtic, and Arthurian symbolism we call this wielding the Awen, and becoming the Holy Grail. Famous people throughout history, legend, and holy writ knew how to do this. Mekezeldek the mysterious priest king of Salem (Jerusalem) who was the first person to give us the ritual of “Holy Communion”, was renowned for his healing skills. Others were also known for their visionary skills and their healing abilities. People like Methuselah, Enoch, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Esther ( Haddasa), Job, King David, King Solomon, Samuel, St. John, Joseph of Arimathea, Mother Mary, The Merlin, Nimue Lady of the Lake, St. Luke, the Magdalene, and of course the most famous and most important of all, Rabbi Yesu ben Yoseph Hamashia (also called Yashua or Joshua, now called Jesus) the Christ.
One method of the art of laying on of hands healing was lost to the world for almost four thousand years. During a mystical experience on a sacred mountain in Japan in the late 1800’s, after a long spiritual quest, a humble Christian minister, a man by the name of Doc. Rev. Mikao Usui (Usui sensei) received from God this lost method of healing. It was given back to humanity at long last. We say in the reiki tradition that he “rediscovered” reiki. Usui sensei taught this healing art to many people. Reiki is a term used for many healing modalities in Japan so we use the terms Usui Reiki Ryoho, and Usui do, to distinguish what we do, and teach in our tradition. Usui Reiki Ryoho or Usui do (pronounced Usui-doe) is reiki as taught by master Usui. One of his students was a great healer by the name of Hayashi (his last name). Hayashi sensei taught it to a woman of profound understanding and insight named Takata (her last name). Takata sensei brought it back to the states to her home in Hawaii. It is possible though not for certain that she was a trained kahuna (Hawaiian shaman), skilled in the art of huna (Hawaiian traditional healing). She became the mother of western Reiki. She taught it to many people in America, and it spread throughout the world. Reiki can now be found in many countries all over the globe. This divine spiritual energetic practice is an advanced form of prayer like the kind Christ taught his disciples. This energy has been called many things in the various languages of the world. In honor of Usui sensei we still use the term Reiki much of the time; as it is known in Japan. All things are made from and animated by God’s Reiki. The Reiki of God is the very power of Creation, as it is channeled to create healing. You too can learn how to become a vessel for this power, and let the Reiki flow into your life, making the world a true and wonderful sanctuary of healing! Come honor God, and let him turn your body temple into a place of sacred healing, so the Holy Spirit will flow through you and touch the lives of all those around you!

Blessed Be!
