REIKI HISTORY

Reiki – is a Japanese word which can be translated as “spiritual energy.”    It has become widely known throughout the world as a method used for healing.   “Reiki healing” was bestowed on the Japanese Mikao Usui (1864-1926) on Mount Kurama.  His spiritual master had sent him to the mountain to experience death.  Fasting to death, on his twenty-first day on the mountain, Mikao Usui received a santori, or mystical awakening.  He described it as a powerful shock as if he had been struck by lightning.  When he regained consciousness, he realized he was filled with cosmic energy.   Once enlightened with this cosmic energy Mikao Usui, came to realize that he had a purpose in his lifetime of sharing his gift of being able to heal self and others.  After his 21 day meditation, Mikao Usui returned from Mount Kurama, and from that point forward he dedicated his life to providing healings as well as teaching others how to heal with a five element system of Reiki.
