How is Jikiden Reiki different from Usui Reiki?

“A frequently asked question by Western trained reiki practitioners. My collegue Gisela Stewart from simplyjikidenreiki explains some of the similarities and differences. “

Simply Jikiden Reiki

Mikao Usui SenseiAnd what would an Usui Reiki Master get from taking this class? How often have I been asked this question in person or by email. This time, though, I have been asked in a public way, so I thought I had perhaps best answer in public, too. First of all: Jikiden Reiki is Usui Reiki, as this simple hand-healing method started with Mikao Usui in Japan in 1922. ‘Jikiden’ means directly transmitted, and in the Japanese language and culture, is a term that refers to a traditional art form,  passed on carefully from teacher to student without changes.

Chiyoko and Tadao YamaguchiChiyoko Yamaguchi, who had learned Reiki from one of the teachers trained by Usui Sensei, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, and her son Tadao decided to pass on what they had learned from Dr. Hayashi after they had met with many Western Reiki practitioners and realised how much the practice had changed, with so many…

What is Reiki 靈氣 ? -4-

An important aspect of REIKI is its practical side for our health and wellbeing, working on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body.

For many people reiki is something “weird” and often only seen on an esoteric level, though its importance in health care should not be underestimated.

Originally, reiki was directly used to heal/cure physical ailmentes and showed amazing results. This aspect is still in the statues of the Jikiden Reiki Institute, and an important part of its teaching.

The WHO (World Health Organization) has recognized Reiki Continue reading What is Reiki 靈氣 ? -4-

The following article was printed in the magazine VIVA LANZAROTE, edition nº 05 in August 2004. It is about Reiki generally. Jikiden Reiki meetings/share are slightly different.

A journalist asked me for some information about Reiki for an article. He had heard about the topic and the public interest about it but had no personal experience with it, was extremly sceptical about it and was trying to improve his knowledge of the subject.

I invited him to one of my monthly Reiki shares, on which we started with a Vipassana meditation and then exchanged Reiki treatments in the group.

I did my best to translate this article into English, but please excuse some changes because of the specific “Spanish slang”.

Reiki, the different energy

Rediscovered during the golden 20s by the Japanese Mikao Usui, Reiki is a technique to heal, relax and to balance a person on a mental, spiritual and physical level. To achieve this he uses the channelling of an existing power in nature and in any living being; known and used by all cultures since the Neolithic era: the cosmic energy.

A Reiki experience can only be told in first person. It takes a degree of mental openness and of acceptance to something unknown. At the same time it requires faith and blind belief in the Reiki master who applies the treatment. However, it’s not vital to believe in Reiki. A Reiki session contains a certain pre-amble of rituals which are not essential.

The meeting I attended started with a Vipassana meditation, during which one breathes consciously and with pauses; paying total attention in inhaling and exhaling. Surprising to someone who is both not attuned and is sceptical, it works. Continue reading VIVA Magazine, 05.08.2004
