What is Reiki?
Reiki is a positive and balancing use of energy. The word reiki means universal light healing so reiki is a connection to the existence of universal life force energy. Rei- essentially means universe and Ki-means the sum of all energy that living things produce. So, this is a system or format of meditation and energy channeling that you can use on anyone or anything in the world around you. You can receive and give reiki energy, and you can give it to plants, animals or anything else exposed to the vibrations of the universe. All living beings are exposed to the universal energy field that you draw from. It is both relaxing and energizing, intelligent and perceptive. Your body, mind and sprit will be accentuated.
The beauty of reiki is that this can be practiced anytime and anywhere for any number of purposes. You will learn to feel in control and at peace again.

In this lecture you will learn more about the history of reiki. In the late 1800’s a Japanese doctor, Mikao Usui relized a new spiritual practice. There are actually three important people to know, who helped construct the process, Mikao Usui, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi and madam Hawayo Takata. Let’s begin with Dr. Usui.
Dr. Usui studied spirituality and religion from many cultures and also studied psychology and medicine. In 1922, when his life was met with many challenges personally and financially, he started to pursue his spirituality further. For this, he visited a familiar mountain in Japan, Mt Kurama, and meditated for 21 days. During this time he realized the system of reiki and founded this means of providing healing to others. He had been to this mountain many times, but this time he was gifted with the power of reiki and the realization of it’s existence.
Upon his return from the mountain, Usui began teaching students what he had realized and created a school to teach students in the area. He focused on hand positions, meditation, attunement and provided his students with the gift to use it on others. His life became dedicated to the practice. By the time Usui died of a stroke in 1926, he had already taught 21 students the art of reiki and had trained them all to become reiki masters.
Dr Hyashi his friend took over Usui’s practice following his death. Hayashi was a retired military surgeon. His work in life includes creating the hand positions used and creating the first clinic for the practice, as well as creating the symbols for the attunement process. Unfortunately Hayashi’s life would meet difficult circumstances as well. Hayashi was called to war during WWII, and he took his own life instead of going back into battle.
Madam Takata was born in 1900. She is one of Hayashi’s original students. She took over as teacher and practitioner after Hayashi and Usui’s death. At one point she decided to go and live with family, so she left Japan and moved to Hawaii.
Madam Takatas’ family worked on a plantation in Hawaii. They migrated from Japan to live there and work on a farm. She stayed there with her two kids. Some years later her husband had a heart attack In 1930 and she was left alone to provide everything for the family. This is where stress takes hold.
Takata went back to Japan in 1935. There she was addressing her health issues that continued to grow with time. Her health issues mounted and she was encouraged to undergo surgery. At this moment, she heard a voice that told her there was another way. This was when she walked away from the hospital and depended on Reiki for health, seeking care at Hayashis’ reiki clinic. It helped her restart a healthy life.
She returned to Hawaii with the intention of spreading the reiki word around the world. Takata then proceeded to train 22 more reiki masters before she died in 1980. This is how reiki came to the west. We must always remember in meditation to give thanks to Mr. Usui, Dr. Hayashi and madam Takata.
Reiki principles – Just for today I will :
- Let go of anger. – It is a destructive emotional property which you must be in control of. Anger indicates that there is something that needs to be healed from within and additionally symbolizes a loss of love in any given situation.
- Let go of worry. – This represents a lack of faith and is an unhealthy feeling that will not allow you to open up and be alive in your healthiest state. You must eliminate this feeling. The earth’s vibrations will pick up worry if you let it linger so you must learn to let it go.
- Do my work honestly. – Use this with conviction. Learn to speak, live and express love and positivity by living each day honestly. Never feel guilty about being honest.
- Count my many blessings. – Learn to find the positive in every day while giving thanks for everything that you have. From sunrise to sunset, everything in between is a blessing. The food you eat, the air you breathe, this is all a blessing.
- Love and respect all living beings. – Right down to the tiniest of insect, open your heart and be loving and respectful towards everything in your environment. Live amongst everyone and everything while sharing the highest qualities of love and respect.
- Every day tell yourself you will do all of these things and begin and end each day while working to master one or more of these principles.
