Healing On All Levels

a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy."  An ancient healing system that is rumored to have started in Tibet, Reiki works on the physical, mental and spiritual levels.

Rediscovered in the mid 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan, Reiki is primarily known as a laying-on-of-hands touch healing. However, an advanced Reiki practitioner can also do absentee, long-distance healing.

During a Reiki treatment, which last about one hour,  the client is seated or lying down and is fully clothed. The Reiki practitioner touches the client lightly in a series of hand positions while Reiki energy is drawn to wherever the person is weak or depleted. Some people experience this as heat, deep relaxation or a feeling of energy movement. Most people feel profoundly relaxed during a treatment while others say it feels like being totally loved.

Reiki safely promotes the natural process of healing, maintaining wellness and preventing imbalances, restoring and maintaining energy. The results are both immediate and long-term. The technique relieves pain and often heals the condition behind the pain so that the client does not become dependent upon the treatments.

A minimum of 3 consecutive Reiki treatments within a few days is recommended when a person is first treated. The number and frequency of additional sessions are determined after this.

Reiki combines with and enhances many other therapies such as body work, massage, Rolfing, chiropractic, acupressure, etc. It also enhances medical treatments and does not interfere or conflict with medications, surgery or other medical procedures. In fact, it is especially effective when used prior to and immediately after surgery.

Becoming a Reiki Channel

To become a Reiki practitioner requires receiving attunements in person from a master/teacher who has also received the attunements and training. The first level is for the hands on method only. At the second level channels learn to do absentee, long distance healing. Only the master/teacher level can attune others to become Reiki channels.

Reiki was rediscovered in the mid 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan. His quest to learn how Jesus and Buddha healed people was sparked by his students questions about this.
Eventually, he took up residence in a Zen Buddhist monastery,         where he found                    Mikao Usui 
Buddhist' texts describing this healing formula. However, they did not include how to activate the energy and make it work.

Dr. Usui traveled to the holy mountain of Kuriyama to fast and meditate for 21 days to attune himself to the level of consciousness described in the Sanskrit formulas. On the last day he had a vision in which he saw the Sanskrit symbols.  After he left the mountain top, he experienced four miracles, and for or some time afterward, he worked in the slums of Kyoto. Eventually, he became a pilgrim, taking Reiki on foot through Japan, carrying a torch and lecturing.

One of Usui’s closest
collaborators, Dr. Chijiro Hayashi, took over the work, becoming the second Reiki Grand Master. He ran a private clinic in Tokyo, where unusually severe illnesses and diseases were treated with Reiki, until 1940.               Chijiro Hayashi                                            
Hawayo Takata, a Hawaii resident, was treated in this clinic and inspired to study with Hayashi. In 1938, Dr. Hayashi  intiated her as a Reiki Master, and upon his death in 1941, she became the third Grand Master of Reiki.

For many years Mrs. Takata lived and practiced Reiki in Hawaii. At the age of 74, she began to train Reiki masters. When she died in 1980, she left behind 22 Reiki Masters in the United States and Canada, 21 of whom she had initiated. Beth Gray was among those masters, and was Ms. Ondrasek’s first Reiki teacher.

Today there are several “schools” and organizations that teach and promote Reiki with various levels of mastery. The traditional method passed along by Mrs. Takata is known as Usui Traditional Reiki.
