History of Reiki

A History and Understanding of Reiki

History of Reiki
Usui Shiki Ryoho
The Usui System of Natural Healing.

Reiki is a generic word in Japan, and is used to describe any type of healing work based on life force energy. It is not exclusive to the system of healing based on Dr. Usui’s method. The system of healing that evolved from Dr. Usui’s method is called the Usui System of Natural Healing or Usui Shiki Rhyoho. It is a type of Reiki.

Since neither Dr. Usui nor Dr. Hayashi let written instructions about Reiki, the only source of information on the Usui System of Reiki comes from the verbal instructions Mrs. Takata passed on to her students.

The Usui System of Natural Healing has evolved over time. In its current state, it is much more organized and structured, than the simple flexible, intuitive method practiced by Dr. Usui himself. The following is a description of the evolution of the Usui System of Reiki.

The ancient healing method of Reiki was re-discovered in the middle of the 18th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, who was also responsible for its revival.Dr. Mikao Usui, was the Principal of a Christian Seminar in Kyoto, Japan. One day some students asked him about the healing methods used by Jesus Christ and whether he would be able to carry out such a healing for them. Dr.Usui was stunned and unable to answer these questions. On that day Dr. Usui resigned his position and determined to find the answers to this mystery.

His journey led him to America, where he attended the University of Chicago and became a Doctor of Theology. However he could not find a satisfactory answer in Christian writing and not having found one in Chinese scriptures either, he traveled to North India, where he studied the holy writings. He later returned to Japan, where he discovered some Sanskrit formulas and symbols in old Buddhist sutras, which seemed to hold the answer to his questions.

Realizing that he had found the key to the healing, he then began to mediate and cause to the conclusion that he should proceed to a sacred mountain about 17 miles from Kyoto, Mount Koriyama and commence a 21 day fast and meditation in the hope of gaining contact with the level of consciousness the Sanskrit symbols had been written on in order to determine the truth of their contents. He came to a specific spot facing East, and gathered up a pile of 21 stones, which would be his calendar. On the 21st day he saw a flicker of light appear. It began to move very rapidly towards him. It became bigger and bigger and finally hit him in the middle of the forehead. Dr. Usui thought he was dead. However he was alive but had merely lost consciousness. He was in a euphoric state. He saw millions and millions of rainbow bubbles, soon they became white glowing bubbles each one containing a three-dimensional Sanskrit character in gold and he said, “Yes, I remember”.

Dr. Mikao Usui left Mount Koriyama knowing how to heal as Buddha and Jesus had healed, walking down the mountain he experienced what is traditionally known as four miracles. We shall read about these miracles in the next post. Let me now connect you to various links which will cover the History of Reiki in detail. You may click on the respective links which will take you to the corresponding sites which will give you a first hand view and information about the History of Reiki.

Book Description: Reiki: The True Story is a comprehensive investigation of Reiki as both a healing practice and a lifelong path of spiritual awakening. Author and Reiki expert Don Beckett weaves together a new story about Reiki’s origins and its founder’s true vision. The foundation of this book is the teachings of a group of Reiki founder Makao Usui’s original students, who held their master’s knowledge in secrecy for more than seventy years.

After a general introduction to Reiki, Beckett presents a thorough history of the discipline (including the testimony of some of Usui’s students) as well as an in-depth manual for practice. The author rounds out his exploration with material from world renowned, contemporary Reiki Masters, Beckett’s own insights into the nature of Reiki energy, as well as information about the chakra system, yin and yang, and the Five Transformations. The book concludes with a chapter entitled “Beyond Reiki,” which bridges knowledge of Reiki with the lesser-known practice of Johrei. Thorough explanations coupled with cutting-edge discoveries about Reiki’s past make this a compelling volume for novice and experienced practitioners alike.
