Reiki was discovered by Sensei Usui when he went up to Mount Kurama to seek enlightenment.
After fasting for 4o days, he was struck in his third eye by a triangular light, enabling him to help heal the bodies of the sick.
He took this practice and dedicated the rest of his life to teaching it, and sharing Reiki.
All lineages of Reiki derive from Sensei Usui.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of alternative healing therapy that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. The word "Reiki" is derived from two Japanese words: "rei," meaning universal or spiritual, and "ki," which refers to the life force energy that flows through all living beings.
The practice of Reiki involves the transfer of this life force energy from a practitioner to a recipient through gentle touch or by placing hands near the body. The belief is that when the life force energy is low or blocked, it can lead to physical, emotional, or spiritual imbalances and illness. Reiki aims to restore and rebalance the energy within the body, promoting healing and well-being.
During a Reiki session, the recipient usually lies down fully clothed, while the practitioner places their hands in a series of positions on or near the body, allowing the energy to flow. The experience is generally described as deeply relaxing and soothing, and recipients may feel sensations such as warmth, tingling, or a sense of peace and calm.
Reiki is considered a complementary therapy and is often used in conjunction with traditional medical treatments. It is not intended as a substitute for medical care but rather as a way to support overall health and well-being. It is important to note that scientific evidence supporting the effectiveness of Reiki is limited, and its benefits are primarily reported through subjective experiences.
Reiki has gained popularity around the world, and many practitioners have been trained in various Reiki techniques and traditions. Some individuals also choose to learn Reiki for self-healing and personal growth. Overall, Reiki is seen as a holistic approach to wellness that addresses the body, mind, and spirit.
