Original Reiki Ideals of Dr. Usui:
Just for today, I let go of anger. Just for today, I let go of worry and I am filled with gratitude. I am devoted to my work and I am kind to people. I honor my parents, teachers and elders. I earn my living honestly and I show gratitude to all living beings.
What is Reiki:
The importance of understanding what Reiki is will help you to trust in its abilities and have confidence in the fact that Reiki is real and does work. Rei stands for the higher mind or the spiritual source of the universe. Ki means life energy of the universe, so Reiki means “Spiritually guided life force energy”.
Asian countries believe in Chi. Chi began over 5,000 years ago. It is the underlying force of energy in all things. In the Japanese culture this is called Ki. Energy is affected by our thoughts and feelings. Our Ki is affected by both our conscious and subconscious thoughts which in turn creates a broad array of Ki that may fill your body at one time. Your Ki can also be affected by your environment and people around you. The relationship between your Ki and your mind is very powerful and truly creates your quality of life.
Reiki is a form of Ki that is guided by Rei, your higher mind. Reiki is full of happiness, peace, love, harmony and only filled with the highest good. It helps with anxiety, relaxation, meditation and illnesses. It is not based on any religion and therefore anyone of any religion can practice Reiki and use it as a form of healing.
For the Scientific minds out there, Reiki has been tested through many theories and laws. Ampere’s Law which says that when electrical current/energy runs through a conductor, there is an electromagnetic field that is created around the conductor. Every cell, tissue and organ in our body has an electromagnetic field. Faraday’s Law says that a change in the electromagnetic field will create a similar change in the electrical flow in any conductor’s close by. This also creates a change in their electromagnetic fields. Having said that, when a healer, which produces strong electromagnetic fields, is treating a client who has some form of aliment, through Reiki, they are creating a healthy frequency/energy from their hands that is pulsating at a rate that brings the clients electromagnetic field to a healthy rate. This is a non-invasive healing process that works with your chakras and your higher self to promote health and well being of your entire physical, emotional and psychic body. It is a practice that promotes over all wellness of the mind, body and spirit.
There are many different kinds of Reiki that developed after Mrs. Hawayo Takata passed away in 1980, but the origin of Reiki is from Dr. Mikaomi Usui of Kyoto Japan. Dr. Usui rediscovered an ancient healing practice from the 1800’s that originated from Tibet. During a fasting and meditation period on a mountain at a water fall, Dr. Usui became enlightened. He was the founder and first practitioner of “Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakki” which is a Healing method society. He died in 1926 leaving 16 teachers to carry on the Reiki healing practice.
Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind.
