The Honourable Reiki Master Mikao Usui


Reiki as discussed by the founder Mikao Usui

(translated from an interview with Mikao Usui)

"From ancient times whenever someone develops a secret method the one would teach this to the people among family, as a legacy for the later generations of the family living.

That idea, not to open to the public and keep that sacred method in the family, is really the past century's bad custom.

In modern days we have to live together. That's going to be the basis of happiness, earnestly wanting social progress.

That's why I definitely won't allow to keep this for myself. Our Reiki Ryoho is a creative idea, which no one has developed before and there is nothing like this in this world. Therefore I am going to open this idea to anybody for the peoples benefit and welfare.

And everyone will receive the blessing from God. With this, expect everyone to have soul and oneness.

Our Reiki Ryoho is an original therapy method using the power based on Reiki, which is a universal power in the universe.

With this, first for human beings themselves to be strong and healthy. Then to improve the thoughts, to be mild and healthy, and human life to be pleasant.

Nowadays inside and outside of living we need improvement and restructuring away from illness and suffering, many fellows have worrying mind out of illness and accident.

I dare to openly teach this method."

Q. What is Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A. Graciously I have received Meiji Emperor's last injunctions. For achieving my teachings, training and improving physically and spiritually and walking in a right path as a human being, first we have to heal our spirit.

Secondly we have to keep our body healthy. If our spirit is healthy and comformed to the truth, body will get healthy naturally. Usui Reiki Ryoho's missions are to lead peaceful and happy life, heal others and improve happiness of others and ourselves.

Q. Is there any similarity to hypnotism, Kiai method, religious method or any other methods?

A. No, there is no similarity to any of those methods. This method is to help body and spirit with intuitive power, which I've received after long and hard training.

Q. Then, is it psychic method of treatment?

A. Yes, you could say that. But you could also say it is physical method of treatment. The reason why is Ki and light are emanated from healer's body, especially from eyes, mouth and hands.

So if healer stares or breathes on or strokes with hands at the affected area such as toothache, colic pain, stomachache, neuralgia, bruises, cuts, burns and other swellings with pain will be gone.

However a chronic disease is not easy, it's needed some time. But a patient will feel improvement at the first treatment. There is a fact more than a novel how to explain this phenomenon with modern medicine. If you see the fact you would understand. Even people who use sophistry can not ignore the fact.

Q. Do I have to believe in Usui Reiki Ryoho to get better result?

A. No. It's not like a psychological method of treatment or hypnosis or other kind of mental method. There is no need to have a consent or admiration. It doesn't matter if you doubt, reject or deny it.

For example, it is effective to children and very ill people who are not aware of any consciousness, such as a doubt, rejection or denying. There may be one out of ten who believes in my method before a treatment.

Most of them learn the benefit after first treatment then they believe in the method.

Q. Can any illness be cured by Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A. Any illness such as psychological or an organic disease can be cured by this method.A. Any illness such as psychological or an organic disease can be cured by this method.

Q. Does Usui Reiki Ryoho only heal illness?

A. No. Usui Reiki Ryoho does not only heal illness. Mental illness such as agony, weakness, timidity, irresolution, nervousness and other bad habit can be corrected.

Then you are able to lead happy life and heal others with mind of God or Buddha. That becomes principle object.

Q. How does Usui Reiki Ryoho work?

A. I've never been given this method by anybody nor studied to get psychic power to heal. I accidentally realized that I have received healing power when I felt the air in mysterious way during fasting.

So I have a hard time explaining exactly even I am the founder. Scholars and men of intelligence have been studying this phenomenon but modern science can't solve it.

But I believe that day will come naturally.

Q. Does Usui Reiki Ryoho use any medicine and are there any side effects?

A. Never uses medical equipment. Staring at affected area, breathing onto it, stroking with hands, laying on of hands and patting lightly with hands are the way of treatment.

Q. Do I need to have knowledge of medicine?

A. My method is beyond a modern science so you do not need knowledge of medicine. If brain disease occurs, I treat a head. If it's a stomachache, I treat a stomach. If it's an eye disease, I treat eyes. You don't have to take bitter medicine or stand for hot moxa treatment.

It takes short time for a treatment with staring at affected area or breathing onto it or laying on of hands or stroking with hands. These are the reason why my method is very original.

Q. What do famous medical scientists think of this method?

A. The famous medical scientists seem very reasonable. European medical scientists have severe criticism towards medicine.

To return to the subject, Dr. Nagai of Teikoku Medical University says, "we as doctors do diagnose, record and comprehend illnesses but we don't know how to treat them."

Dr. Kondo says, "it is not true that medical science made a great progress. It is the biggest fault in the modern medical science that we don't take notice of psychological affect.

Dr. Kuga says, "it is a fact that psychological therapy and other kind of healing treatment done by healers without doctor's training works better than doctors, depending on type of illnesses or patient's personality or application of treatment.

Also the doctors who try to repel and exclude psychological healers without doctor's training are narrow-minded.


From Nihon Iji Shinpo

It is obvious fact that, doctors, medical scientists and pharmacists recognize the affect of my method and become a pupil."

Q. What is the government's reaction?

A. On February 6th, 1922, at the Standing Committee on Budget of House of Representatives, a member of the Diet Dr. Matsushita asked for government's view about the fact that people who do not have doctor's training have been treating many patients with psychological or spiritual method of treatment.

Mr. Ushio, a government delegate says, "a little over 10 years ago people thought hypnosis is a work of long-nosed goblin but nowadays study has been done and it's applied to mentally ill patients. It is very difficult to solve human intellect with just science.

Doctors follow the instruction how to treat patients by medical science, but it's not a medical treatment such as electric therapy or just touching with hands to all illnesses." So my Usui Reiki Ryoho does not violate the Medical Practitioners Law or Shin-Kyu (acupuncture and moxa treatment) Management Regulation.

Q. People would think that this kind of healing power is gifted to the selected people, not by training.

A. No, that isn't true. Every existence has healing power. Plants, trees, animals, fish and insects, but especially a human as the lord of creation has remarkable power. Usui Reiki Ryoho is materialized the healing power that human has.

Q. Then, can anybody receive Denju (first teaching) of Usui Reiki Ryoho?

A. Of course, a man, woman, young or old, people with knowledge or without knowledge, anybody who has a common sense can receive the power accurately in a short time and can heal selves and others. I have taught to more than one thousand people but no one is failed.

Everyone is able to heal illness with just Shoden. You may think it is inscrutable to get the healing power in a short time but it is reasonable. It's the feature of my method that heals difficult illnesses easily.

Q. If I can heal others, can I heal myself?

A. If you can't heal yourself, how can you heal others.

Q. How can I receive Okuden?

A. Okuden includes Hatsureiho, patting with hands method, stroking with hands method, pressing with hands method, telesthetic method and propensity method. I will teach it to people who have learned Shoden and who are good students, good conduct and enthusiasts.

Q. Is there higher level more than Okuden?

A. Yes, there is a level called Shinpi-den


What is Reiki: Introduction

Reiki is universal life force energy; originally used by Tibetan monks for self healing. In the mid 1800's, the healing Reiki energy was rediscovered by Mikao Usui, who developed the techniques used today for Reiki treatment. Reiki is a bio-energetic technique. The practitioner draws the energy into his/her body and then transfers this energy into the body of another.

The ability to flow the Reiki energy is acquired through a process (attunement or initiation) done by the Reiki Master.

The energy is safe and non-invasive and transferred by lightly placing hands on or above the body. Reiki energy will go through your clothing and will feel warm and relaxing. Reiki increases energy, helps balance body/ mind/ spirit, supports and accelerates the body's natural healing system, and promotes peace and well-being.

Reiki is good for stress reduction, chronic pain, disease, breaks, emotional or mental upset, PMS, etc.


Ancient Origins of Reiki and its History & Development

Reiki has its origins in ancient Tibet. Tibetan lamas meditated on symbols that raised their consciousness, heightened their awareness, and purified their body and mind. The techniques were passed on by word of mouth from monk to monk.

Mikao Usui became a Buddhist monk teaching in Kyoto, Japan and had was fluent in Chinese, English, and Sanskrit. He also attended the University of Chicago and was unsuccessful in finding information in Christian writings about hands on healing techniques. Mikao Usui rediscovered the Reiki symbols in a Sanskrit text and was the founder of the Usui Shiki Ryoho.

He returned to Japan and decided to travel to the Holy Mountain Kurimaja to fast and meditate for 21 days, hoping to gain contact with a level of consciousness that he had discovered in some Sanskrit formulas and old Buddhist sutra symbols.

At the top of the mountain, Mikao Usui placed 21 stones in order to mark the passage of time. He spent his time on the mountain reading the sutras, singing, and meditating each day discarding one stone over the mountainside. Nothing unusual happened until the final day when he saw a shining light moving towards him at great speed. It became larger and larger until it hit him in the center of the forehead. Mikao Usui was conscious of millions of little bubbles in all the colors of the rainbow, and a great white light appeared he saw the little known Sanskrit symbols in front of him glowing in shining gold. This was the birth of Reiki as we know it under Mikao Usui.

When he returned to a normal state of consciousness, the sun was shining brightly and he felt an elation of spirit, a sense of strength and energy despite the fact that he had been fasting for three weeks. In his rush off the mountain, Mikao Usui stubbed his toe harshly on a rock and fell to the ground as his toe began to bleed.

Instinctively the monk grabbed hold of his foot with both hands, and in a few minutes the bleeding and pain disappeared miraculously.

Finally at the base of the mountain, Mikao Usui stopped at an inn to eat his first meal in 21 days. The innkeeper was well aware of the dangers of eating a large meal after fasting and warned Mikao Usui to be mindful of this fact. However, Mikao Usui was able to eat a large Japanese breakfast without any adverse affects whatsoever. This was the second miracle, to complete a trio there was one more to come that day.

It seems the inkeepers granddaughter had been suffering from a bad toothache for the past few days. Remembering how easily his toe had healed using touch, Mikao Usui laid his hands on the child's swollen face and she immediately felt better.

Elated with his finding Mikao Usui returned to his monastery, but soon decided he would go to the beggar's part of Kyoto to treat their illnesses and help them lead better lives. He spent the next seven years with them, successfully healing the community. However, one day Mikao Usui noticed that the same old faces kept returning. Baffled, he asked the healed beggars why they had not begun a new life, and was told that working was too troublesome, that it was better to go on begging.

Mikao Usui was deeply shaken and wept. He suddenly realized he had overlooked something of great importance in his healing work: namely to teach the beggars gratitude. In the following days he thought out the Reiki principles as we know them today.

Soon afterwards, Mikao Usui left the beggars' quarters and returned to the main section of Kyoto , where he kindled a large torch, and dramatically posed with it in the streets. When people asked what he was doing, he replied, he was looking for people in search of the true light, people who were ill and oppressed, and longed to be healed. This was the beginning of a new part of Mikao Usui's life where he travelled around teaching Reiki to those who would listen.

What is interesting to remember is that per Mikao Usui, that Reiki calligraphy was used only for self-development in meditation and spiritual purification. With Mikao Usui's discovery and also since then, the reiki system has undergone many changes. Although the calligraphy has remained basically the same, revisions have been done to make them appeal to the Western mind.

Mr. Mikao Usui is now buried in a Kyoto, with the story of his life written on his gravestone. It is said that his grave was honored by the Emperor of Japan. One of Mikao Usui's closest followers was Dr. Chijiro Hayashi, who succeeded Usui as Reiki Grand Master. Until 1940, Hayashi ran a private Reiki clinic in Tokyo , where unusually severe illness and disease were treated with Reiki. This clinic is where Hawayo Takato first received Reiki treatments that led to her study with Dr. Hayashi. After these studies, Takata returned to Hawaii and was made a Reiki Master by Hayashi when he visited her in 1938 and she became the third Grand Master upon his death. Takata lived and himg sealed in Hawaii and began training Reiki Masters when she was 74. In 1980, Takata passed away leaving 22 Reiki Masters in the U.S. and Canada . She was succeeded as Grand Reiki Master by her granddaughter Phyllis Furmoto.
