(pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning "Universal Life Force Energy". Reiki is also known as Usui System of Natural Healing. Every human being is endowed with energy centers in the palms of his/her hands. Reiki opens up these centers. The palms of the hands are placed over the part(s) of the body in different positions.

REIKI originated in Tibet thousands of years ago. The monks in Tibet were master of these ancient art form for it's use in healing and self improvement and spiritual transformation. It was kept as a secret and was passed on to a selected dedicated few.

REIKI was brought to the world by Dr.Mikao Usui, a Christian scholar and teacher, who after responding to some deep queries from his students regarding how Jesus was able to heal the people, went in to an deep and rigorous study of the healing techniques of ancient spiritual leaders. He found the healing techniques in ancient Buddhist scriptures and spent his life applying and teaching the techniques to his students.

REIKI reached the world in late 1970's in west through Mrs.Hawayo Takata. Since then millions of people have received Reiki worldwide.


Usui Shiki Ryoho

The Usui System of natural Healing

Reiki in Japanese is used to describe any healing work based on life force energy. The system of healing that used by Dr.Usui is called the Usui System of Natural Healing or Usui Shiki Ryoho. All present information about the history of Reiki and its source of rediscovery, Dr. Mikao Usui, comes from the oral story of Mrs. Takata, which was passed by her to her students. According to this story, Reiki was something Dr. Usui had rediscovered and therefore, it must have existed before. No written records are known to exist about Dr. Usui's experience.

There are spiritual lineages in Tibetan Buddhism involving the transmission of energy through empowerments. Since Tibetan Buddhism is the only form of Buddhism that uses empowerments, it is very much possible that the Reiki Dr. Usui rediscovered was in fact a Tibetan technique that had been lost to the world. It is believed that a spiritual lineage of this type may stop due to the failure of the teacher to pass it on. The lineage may then resume hundreds or thousands of years later when a monk or spiritual seeker receives instruction and empowerment during a mystical experience. Perhaps this is what happened to Dr. Usui. Perhaps he had been a Reiki Master in a past life and this gave him the determination to seek the healing power again. Perhaps the lineage had come to an end only to be started again when Dr. Usui's Reiki was reactivated during his mystical experience.

The Usui System of Natural Healing has evolved over time. In its present state, it is much more organized than the intuitive method practiced by Dr. Usui. In the following paragraphs we are going to learn about the evolution of the Usui System of Reiki.

During his mystical experience on Mt.Kori-yama, Dr.Usui gained the ability to pass on Reiki treatments, the Reiki symbols and the ability to pass Reiki to others. After some time he added his Reiki Ideals and the idea that one has to take compensation for a treatment. Dr.Hayashi added the standard hand positions, the three degrees and their attunement processes. Mrs.Takata added the fee structure. The necessary waiting periods in between the classes were introduced by the members of the Reiki Alliance after Mrs.Takata passed away.

After Mrs.Takata's progression, a few teachers made changes in the way they taught Reiki. Many changes were beneficial as they came from the inner self and wisdom. However, some of the changes were restrictive in nature and it made the progress of the students slow and difficult. Often, the fact that they had modified the usui system was not mentioned to their students and when their students became teachers, they began teaching what they thought was pure Reiki when the fact was that it was not so. In this way, many styles of Reiki have developed in its modified form
