What is the History of Reiki?
The Reiki history does not originate from a particular school of thought, religion or other form of energy work. Reiki is it’s own unique discipline. Although it is a form of spiritual awakening and hands on healing that has been used for many centuries and cultures. Reiki is a Healing Technique – That is used to restore physical & emotional well being to the patient by channeling energy that activates the body’s natural healing process.
Reiki formally began to be taught in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui (1865-1926). He was quoted by saying “our Reiki Ryoho is something absolutely original and cannot be compared with any other (spiritual) path in the world”. It is said that Mr. Usui went on a 21 day retreat to Mt. Kurama for an in-depth training course called Isyu Guo. “We do not know for certain what he was required to do during this training, but it is likely that fasting, mediation, chanting and prayers were part of the practice.” – William Lee Rand
Reiki was introduced to America around the time of World War II, by Mrs. Hawayo Takata. Mrs. Takata went to a Reiki clinic in Japan from Hawaii for physical healing. She had such an amazing healing that she impressed one of the Reiki Teachers Chujiro Hayashi, to help her develop the art of Reiki to take back to America. Mrs. Takata had introduce Reiki at a turbulent time and therefore clothed Reiki in Christianity, as to be more receptive to Americans.
“Reiki can never and will never belong to one person or one organization. It is the spiritual heritage of all humanity”. – Mikao Usui
