Reiki, a Japanese word (pronounced “RAY-key”) means universal life-force, or Divine energy, and indicates a system of healing that many feel had its origins in Tibet. This practice is said to have been handed down from the ancient teachings of the Vedas, a compilation of scriptures that were given to the great Rishis (wise men) many thousands of years ago. The oldest known existing text is over 5,000 years old. Reiki is not a religion. Although this healing practice is known in all cultures throughout the world. It has a built-in spiritual dimension. Reiki is a unity concept, because it is now accepted globally. Reiki teaches unity and harmony. Reiki is in harmony with nature and can be used to heal plants and trees, people and animals, and can even be used to help purify and harmonize water and air. Reiki was discovered at the beginning of the twentieth century by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui. He later developed it into a system of healing that he passed on to others by means of a system of empowerments, or attunements (in Japanese, the word is reiju, which means “receive the energy/spirit”). It is now practiced by millions around the globe.
Knowledge of other ancient healing systems sheds light on the pre-Usui origins of Reiki. The Tibetan Buddhist healing technique that is used by followers of the Medicine Buddha practice involves the laying on of hands in a fashion similar to Reiki, as well as the ability of transmitting this healing method through an empowerment from teacher to student. Taught orally from teacher to student, this is similar to the Reiki method of initiation and attunement. There are other spiritual lineages in Tibetan Buddhism involving the transmission of ability through empowerments. Since Tibetan Buddhism is the only form of Buddhism that uses empowerments, it is likely that what Dr. Usui rediscovered was formerly a Tibetan technique that had been lost. It is known that a spiritual lineage of this type may end due to the failure of the teacher to pass it on. The lineage may then resume hundreds or thousands of years later when a monk or spiritual seeker receives instruction and empowerment during a mystical experience. Perhaps this is what happened to Dr. Usui. Perhaps he had been a Healing Master in a past life and this gave him the determination to seek the healing power again. Perhaps the lineage had come to an end only to be started again when Dr. Usui’s Reiki was reactivated during his mystical experience.
What Is The History Of Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient form of healing believed to have spread through Tibet, China and India a few thousand years ago. It was rediscovered about one hundred and twenty years ago by Dr Mikao Usui and evolved through his experience and dedication. Reiki came from Japan to the western world via California and Hawaii.
Mikao Usui was born to a wealthy family on August 15, 1865 in Kyoto Japan. As a child he studied in a Tendai Buddhist monastery. He followed Buddha’s teachings all his life and was a very spiritual man. Dr Usui became a Christian Professor of Theology. One day a student asked him “How exactly did Jesus heal?” Dr Usui was unable to answer the student’s question and decided to leave his post to discover the answer. He spent many years on a quest for the secret of ancient healing knowledge.
While studying in a Tibetan Monastery Dr Usui discovered ancient manuscript texts which contained healing symbols. He believed that the symbols could reveal the healing powers of spiritual leaders such as Jesus and Buddha. As nobody at the monastery could explain what the symbols meant, he decided to look within himself for the answer. He went to the top of the Holy Mountain Kuri Yama in Japan and underwent a 21 day period of purification, fasting and meditation at the end of which he received enlightenment and the power of healing. He came down from the mountain and spent the rest of his life practising and teaching what we now know as REIKI. Mikao Usui is buried at Saihoji Temple in Suginami-Ku, Tokyo. His students erected a memorial stone in remembrance of his life and work with Reiki.
