What is Reiki?
We know that every material is consisted of "vibration" based on Quantum Physics which was started to be established at the beginning of the 20th centrury in Germany. The univrse, the earth and human beings are, therefore, consisted of "vibration". "Reiki" which Mr. Mikao Usui named is one of those vibrations which are pervaded in the universe. "Rei"(靈) means "life" which is pervaded in the universe, and "Ki"(氣) expresses "energy" in Japanese, and it can be called as e.g. "life energy", "universal energy", "prana", "mana" and "Qi". In English, Reiki is sometimes expressed as "Ray Qi", which might be very precise expression considering the features of Reiki.
Reiki is a vibration which heals diseases and brings "peace" in your mind. In addition, Reiki is the "energy of love and healing" which leads people to health and happiness.
In Reiki healing (mainly hand healing) which was established by Mikao Usui in 1922, it is capable of healing diseases, improving healthy condition, and bringing peace in your mindby being resonant with the energy of love and healing which is pervated into the universe.
History of Reiki
Mikao Usui (1865-1926) got "Reiki" in 1922 in Mt. Kurama in Kyoto after 21 days fasting and meditation. While he climbed down, he realized that he had the ability to heal. He systemized Reiki therapy using symbols and mantras in order that anybody can use Reiki. He grew up 21 disciples, and one of them, Chujiro Hayashi contributed to a chance that Reiki in Japan became Reiki in the world. Hayashi´s disciple, Hawayo Takata who was a Japanese-American living in Hawaii played a role in pervading Reiki into the West (western Reiki) and contributed to its diversification. Reiki did continued to develop in the West. Finally in 1993, German Reiki Teacher, Frank Arjava Petter brought it (as western Reiki) back to Japan. Since then, Reiki has seriously been pervaded in Japan. At present, it is said that approcimately 500,000 Reiki healers exist in the world. In the UK and Canada, Reiki therapy as alternative medicine is covered by health insurance, In addition, in the US, it is possible to study Reiki in universities.
