The Reiki Principles
Just for today,
Do not anger
Do not worry
Be honest in your dealings with other people
Be compassionate towards yourself and others
The Founder, Usui Mikao
Reiki was founded by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy” which in Japanese means ‘Universal Life Force’. He passed this healing power onto Chirjuro Hayashi who in turn passed it on to Hawayo Takata. Hawayo trained several American people, and from there it spread all over the world. This healing method was formed through the research, hard work and experience of these pioneers.
It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s. Eastern medicine has worked with this Universal Life Force energy has for thousands of years, recognising its flow through all living things.
In the West, Reiki is practised very much like an oriental version of spiritual healing and is based on channelling of a form of energy, or spiritual energy. The idea of a universal life force occurs across many cultures and is not attached to any one religion or belief system, for example, in India, this energy is referred to as ‘Prana’, and breathing exercises and yoga techniques have been developed to bring your energy system back to balance.
Reiki defined by the Oxford English dictionary:-
“A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.
Reiki is not a one hit wonder healing method; Reiki works best when received on a regular basis. The more regular you have it the deeper your experiences will be. Yes one session will make you feel good and relaxed but won’t target the healing the body actually needs and the maintenance that is required to keep the energy centres open and clear (the Chakras).
