When you talk about traditional (jikiden) reiki, there always pops up the name of our beloved sensei Chiyoko Yamaguchi, direct reiki descendant and student of Dr. Hayashi sensei and the co-founder (together with her son Tadao Yamaguchi) of the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai in Kyoto.
Everybody who was lucky to have met her and studied with her described her as a lovely, warm hearted and also very open minded and curious lady. Looking at her pictures and her beautiful smile makes you feel directly loved and full of inner peace.
Thank you Chiyoko sensei for sharing your love for reiki with your son Tadao sensei and all of us.
Have a look at THIS LINK with lots of photos and personal comments about her.

Though, talking about reiki in our contemporary society, we normally refer to the reiki teaching of Mikao Usui sensei from Japan, with all its colourful modifications from the West, where its worldwide diffusion started last century.
Thus, reiki is reiki and its sole real differences Continue reading Q & A: I heard, there is “different reiki”?
On my page REIJU you can find a short introduction what Reiju involves, using the term “attunement” as its translation.
Though “attunement” is the common Western version, we can also use “empowerment”, that might even be a deeper idea about what Reiju provides. In Western world it shows a way to connect to Reiki power, to use Reiki instantly.
In any way it still is very different to the Japanese concept of Reiju. To give somebody power or turn them into a certain frequency is not a proper part of the Japanese concept.
Mikao Usui, the “founder” of the Reiki concept, realised pretty fast after his “enlightenment”, that every human being could use Reiki, though mostly a new way was needed to get “re-connected”.
One of his biggest achievement was to create REIJU, to Continue reading Reiju 靈授 – Literally “attunement” or “what”? 🌟
