Reiki is a simple, effective method of spiritual development and natural health promotion which originated in Japan.
In a Reiki session, spiritual energy is made available to the client, promoting a feeling of calm, ease and restored vitality. Similar to the “laying on of hands”, Reiki is passed to the recipient primarily through the hands and is based on the idea that the state of the essential life force energy in our bodies is revealed in positive health or illness.
Our energy has an optimum natural balance and flow and we are at risk to develop illness when it is low or out of balance. Reiki restores the natural balance of the energy which animates the body, promotes healing on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, is natural and complements other treatment methods.
The word Reiki is translated as “spiritual energy” and the benefits are seen as coming from God or the Divine, rather than from the practitioner. Although Reiki is not affiliated with any religion, it is a spiritual practice for the practitioner and encourages positive attitude, lifestyle and practices, including meditation. The ability to share Reiki with others comes from receiving Reiju and through daily spiritual practice.
Mikao Usui developed and taught Reiki in the early 1900’s in Japan. It was brought to the United States by Hawayo Takata, who studied with one of his later students, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Many Reiki Masters in the United States were trained by someone who learned from Mrs. Takata or one of her students. Many of them teach a mix of new age techniques, concepts from Indian practices such as the chakras, and information from Hayashi and Takata- style Reiki.
Over time, more Reiki masters are learning and utilizing the original Japanese healing techniques taught by Usui and which are still practiced in Japan. Dylan strives to give Reiki trainings that are well grounded in traditional Usui Reiki practices and to clarify the different styles of Western practices in use in the US today.
