A brief history of Reiki

Dr Mikao UsuiDr Usui was a Christian Minister in Japan and although Japanese he was the head of a Christian Boys School there. One day some of the students asked him if he believed in the miracles which Jesus did (healing etc). Being a Christian minister he answered “yes”. They asked if he know how Jesus had done this “no” he said.

Dr Usui resolved to find the way in which Jesus had healed. This immediately set him on a journey for many years. He studied first at a Christian school in the US but with no results. In the Christian schools the method was not known.

It was suggested he study Buddhism since the Buddha had also healed. This took more years studying at a monastery in the Orient. He still could not find the answers he was looking for. He toured many temples asking for knowledge of how the Buddha had healed. At each one the priests said they were more concerned with the spiritual rather than physical well-being.

In one small monastery he found some ancient Sanskrit writings and after a few more years of study he felt he had come to an understanding and that to go further this required in depth meditation. He declared to the monks of this monastery his intention to fast and meditate for 21 days at a nearby mountain and that if he did not come back they should come and get his body.

He went to the mountain and gathered 21 stones with which to count the days. Each day he would throw away a stone and in this way count the time. On the 20th day nothing had come as yet and he threw away the last stone. In the night on he horizon he could see a ball of light coming towards him. The first instinct was to get out of the way, but he realised this might just be what he was waiting for, so allowed it to hit him in the forehead. As it struck him he was taken on a journey and shown bubbles of all the colours of the rainbow in which were the symbols of Reiki, the very same symbols in the Tibetan writings he was studying but had been unable to understand. Now as he looked at them again there was total understanding.

After returning from this experience he returned back from the mountain and was from this moment on able to heal.
