Reiki - It's History and Emergence in the Wider World

The history of the ancient healing art of Reiki has been well documented. It is widely believed to have originally been practised for hundreds of years by Buddhist Monks.

However, at the end of the 19th Century a Japanese priest discovered this ancient healing art for himself. When his personal belief system was originally challenged, Dr Mikao Usi decided to leave Japan and study the teachings of Buddhism.

Through these teachings and during one particular meditation, Dr Usi was told he should go to Mount Kuri Yama near Kyoto. This he did and whilst there underwent a metaphysical experience which gave him the vision of the keys to what is now commonly known as Reiki Healing.

Dr Mikao Usi decided to use his newfound gift to heal others by setting up a practise in Tokyo. He became very well known and revered for his work and after his death a shrine was erected at Mount Kuri Yama in his honour.

During the years of work as a healer Dr Usi discovered some valuable lessons which have been passed down through the years to all Reiki practitioners. These are basic rules which must be adhered to enable the receiver of Reiki to achieve beneficial healing:-

A. A client must take on the responsibility for their own healing process by way of an exchange between recipient and practitioner either a monetary exchange or a gift.

B. A potential client must want and ask for healing.

These two rules led to 5 basic principles being introduced also into the holistic attitude of healing by using Reiki energy. They are (in condensed form):-

1. Just for today will let go of Anger
2. Just for today I will let go of worry
3. Today I will count my many blessings
4. Today I will do my work honestly
5. Today I will be kind to every living creature

Enjoying the benefits of Reiki does not mean you have a quick fire solution to your health problems. Our minds control so much of our physical symptoms and we must take responsibility too in helping ourselves heal. You may feel incredibly relaxed and care-free momentarily after a reiki session but if you do not scrutinise the causes which brought about your need for healing, then you will end up in the same position. Changes of attitudes may be required ie Principle 1 above, for today let go of Anger. You may suddenly feel the pain in your body disappear. Principle 2, let go of Worry - your headache eases off. Value yourself enough to allow the healing energy to work with you and seek the root cause.

Dr Usi passed down the teachings and principles to others who have taken them worldwide. Such are the success stories of Reiki that previously sceptical minds are now converted to accepting this type of healing and have gone on to become either healers themselves or recipients of the healing. The myth of healing hands is no longer a myth and has been replaced with many, many successful testimonies.

Medicine Reiki

Medicine Reiki

Medicine Reiki is a type of Reiki which incorporates Native American medicine practices and methods with the healing concepts of traditional Reiki. It is a newer method that helps those in need to heal. By using both of these methods in Reiki, it allows for one to be able to use two types of holistic healing. With the concepts of Medicine Reiki comes a variation on how this type of Reiki is used.

The beginning of Medicine Reiki was in 1999 by the founder K'sitew. His origins began when studying Reiki practices in Switzerland. From here, he moved back to the roots of Native American medicines in order to offer a variation healing method for those interested in healing through universal energies. He has continued to expand this practice in order to incorporate several energies.

There are several unique parts of the Medicine Reiki practice. The idea of higher universal energies is taken to a new level and understanding with this type of Reiki. Instead of having higher levels of energy which one can tap into, it allows for one to be able to find several different types of energy that relate to what type of healing one wants.

Among these healing energies, are several traditional Native American concepts that can be used. Energies such as the four elements, the bear and the eagle, Father Sun and Mother Earth, as well as other forms of energies can be used in one's healing. Deciphering which type of energy to use will depend on the type of healing that one will need.

Uniqueness in the Medicine Reiki method is that the advancement of healing is known to take place much faster than traditional Reiki. This is done not only by calling on different energies, but also by following several of the medicine ceremonies that are used in Native American healing. This may include things such as a Medicine Sweat.

The third uniqueness of Medicine Reiki is the use of community in the healing process. Attunements and healing practices are usually done within a group, allowing everyone to send energies to one person's healing. By doing this it creates a stronger bond among the different people and allows for more energy to be able to be used in the healing. By doing this, it is said to create better forms of healing methods.

The founder of the Medicine Reiki practice points out that this practice must become a discipline as well, not only to cure the ailment, but also to perform a healthier lifestyle in order to ensure that the Medicine Reiki method continues to heal. It is said that if the lifestyle doesn't change, then the illness or ailment will return.

The Medicine Reiki method has been proven to work, especially in relation to physical illness and disease. Those that are involved in this method are able to call on different spiritual energies in order to change their health and energy levels. By combining Reiki methods with Native American techniques, Medicine Reiki is able to help those in need to heal.

What is Reiki
Jan 27th, 2012 by Aldouspi

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands on healing art which was developed in the early 1900s by Mikao Usui in Japan. The word Reiki derives from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki meaning a Universal Life Force of Energy. There are many ways that Reiki is practiced. The art is passed from Master to student.
Reiki is a widely known type of energy healing which involves the direct application of Chi for the purpose of strengthening one's energy system, also known as aura.
Chi is the term used for the underlying force that the Universe is made of and is used by Chinese mystics and martial artist. Mystics from many cultures relate to the physical universe being made of an underlying form of something. Modern physics research is now understanding that our Universe is made of energy subjected to and affected by thought.
The mystics also say that this underlying form is affected by thought claiming that we create our own reality from thinking and the thoughts we have and share between us.
If we stop and reflect for a moment, we can imagine the implications of the universe which is around us, made from energy which can be manipulated by our thoughts.
This is the implication of Quantum Physics and ancient Metaphysics. Some say that this may make illness and miraculous cures, especially those with no apparent cause, easier to explain. A good example of this is prayer. Research has shown that prayer improves the health of those who are prayed for. Intent prayer is thought to send thoughts such as `I wish this to happen.' Reiki followers believe that if the world is energy which is subject to the power of though the prayers must work.
It is very easy to learn Reiki and it is very simple to use. All can benefit from it. Reiki is one of many healing forms that used natural forces given by ancient Chinese mystics. Some healing forms which use Chi energy are Chi Gong, Pranic Healing, Chelation and Polarity Balancing. Apparently all use the same energies but differ in their techniques of application and the quality of energy known as vibration.
Reiki, meaning Universal Life Force Energy refers to the energy itself rather than the specific techniques which are taught by Reiki Masters. The proper name for this technique is the Usui System of Natural Healing, names after the founder, Dr Mikao Usui. Reiki is the common name used today.
Reiki consists of a practitioner placing his or her hands upon the person wishing to be healed with the intent for the healing to occur rather than the energy to begin flowing. Reiki is said to be smart since the energy knows where to go and what to do when it gets there or it is being directed by a higher intelligence. Apparently the energy is able to manage its own flow to and within those receiving it by drawing through the healer the exact amount the recipient needs. This is supposed to happen without the healing directly consciously intervening. The healer should get out of the way, although keep the healing space open whilst listening and watching for signs of what to do next.
