"Jikiden Reiki": a healing

 
What is Jikiden Reiki?
Jikiden Reiki is the Japanese healing method discovered in Japan by Mr. Mikao Usui in 1922.? The Official name is "Shinshin Kaizen Usui Reiki Rhoyho", which means " The Usui Reiki Treatment Method for Improvement of Body and Mind ".
He educated Mr. Chujiro Hayashi to master his healing method.? Mr. Hayashi had many Reiki pupils in Japan, including Ms. Hawayo Takata, who was a Japanese American living in Hawaii.? Ms. Takata taught Reiki Healing in Hawaii, and eventually in 1981, Reiki started to spread to the rest of the world.? Meanwhile, Chiyoko Yamaguchi learned Reiki Healing directly from Mr. Hayashi 1938, and continued to practice it in these 65 years and more in her daily life under the name of "Jikiden Reiki". Therefore, Jikiden (literally means "personally initiated") Reiki has no influences from overseas and is the Japanese-born and Japanese-grown Reiki Healing.

Perfection of Usui Reiki Healing
The Founder Mikao Usui went through all kinds of life experience, seeking true purpose of the human being.? He came across Zen and spent three years practicing Zen in vain. Knowing that he failed to become enlightened, he struggled to find a way , and asked a high priest of Zen for advice.? The answer was death. The Zen master told him that "you could never achieve the enlightenment no matter how hard you try. You would better face possible moment of death for once".
Mr. Usui realized that it would be impossible for him to become enlightened in this lifetime.? He thought that all was over with him, and prepared himself to fast at Mount Kurama in the suburbs of Kyoto.? As he prepared for death, there was no time limit for his fasting.? Time elapsed day by day.? After some 20 days Mr. Usui felt a flash of light which went through the crown of his head, and awakened to the oneness of the sky (God, the universe) and the self.
Mr. Usui finished the fasting and went down the mountain. But he stumbled on a stone on his way down, and got seriously injured to tear off a toenail.? He put his hand on his damaged? toe unintentionally.? Then he had a strange experience - he found himself feeling no pain, the blood stopped bleeding, and the would was cured immediately.? That was the beginning of Reiki Healing.
After this experience, he continued to practice with addition of a broad range of inventive ideas, and perfected Usui Reiki Healing Method.? Since then, Mr. Usui trained many people before he passed away in March 9, 1926.?
It should be noted that on January 16, 1926, He selected 20 particularly excellent pupils to entrust his Shinshin Kaizen Usui Reiki Rhoyho,? Reiki Healing extensively widespread, and reportedly there were more than one million practitioners before the World War ll.
Broad expansion of Western Reiki
Among these 20 pupils, it was Mr. Chujiro Hayashi that made the greatest contribution to promote Reiki Healing.? He was a retired navy officer.? Mr. Usui valued this career and allowed him to establish a center for Reiki Healing.? That center was named as Hayashi Reiki Kenkyukai ("Research Group").
Mr. Hayashi trained pupils while taking care of many patients.? One of his patient, Ms., Hawayo Takata, a Japanese-American living in Hawaii, played an important role in the inception of so-called the school of Western Reiki.
She was declared, by the doctors of Western medicine, that she was terminally ill and would not have long to live.? Naturally she was disappointed in the Western medicine, and then, she found Hayashi Reiki Kenkyukai.? She visited Mr. Hayashi for Reiki Healing treatment, and fully recovered her health within less than ten months.
Strongly impressed, Ms. Takata learned everything about Reiki from Mr. Hayashi, and returned to her home in Hawaii.? Later, she invited Mr. Hayashi to Hawaii.? He stayed there for as long as some five months, teaching Reiki Healing to the people there.
That event triggered the broad expansion of Western Reiki.? However, the times changed and the World War II broke out.? Inevitably, communications about Reiki Healing stopped spreading.
In 1978, Ms. Takata started her activities to spread Reiki Healing at her age of 78.? She devoted her last two years for training the next generations of Reiki healers, and developed but only twenty-two teachers. One year after her passing, Western Reiki started to spread to the world in full scale.
Western Reiki spread throughout the world in a decade or so.? It reached to, or, in other words, re-imported back to, Japan in 1990 or so.? Neither Chiyoko Yamaguchi nor I knew about Western Reiki at all.?
Then, those who learned Western Reiki in Japan started to search for the practitioners of Reiki Healing, thinking that the pupils of Mr. Mikao Usui and Mr. Chujiro Hayashi (both of them were Japanese) should keep the tradition within the home country.? However, their efforts were in vain at that time.??
After a while, they concluded that the Reiki school in Japan had discontinued in the wartime and that there were no practitioners after the World War II.? As a result, many Japanese actively learned Western Reiki, which spread all over the country.?
Chiyoko Yamaguchi learned Reiki Healing directly from Mr. Hayashi, who was the teacher of Ms. Hawayo Takata, and continued to practice it in these 65 years and more in her daily life.? While many people perceive as if Chiyoko was the only one person who succeeded to the Reiki Healing, in reality, many of her relatives, including her brothers, continued to practice it.? It was around 1997 when we were found by those who were interested in the healing methodology.
Many Western Reiki practitioners realized the significance of this encounter, and asked us to reproduce the Reiki Seminar held by Mr. Chujiro Hayashi.? In 1999,? we established Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (Jikiden Reiki Institute) in 1999 to revive Japanese traditional Reiki Healing as it was handed down from Mr. Mikao Usui to Mr. Chujiro Hayashi.?
Today we have Jikiden Reiki practitioners not only in Japan but also in more than 12 countries all over the world.? Chiyoko Yamaguchi passed away in 2003, and now I, her fourth son Tadao Yamaguchi, continues to teach Reiki Healing for many pupils as the delegate of Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai.?

Dowsing can pinpoint the Byosen
Reiki Healing has many aspects. Its most important aspect in treatment is the concept of Byosen (effective point for healing, or the source of illness).
A Reiki practitioner can detect the Byosen by putting his/her hand on the patient to scan the part of the body where something wrong is going on, locating the source of disorder or illness.? Moreover, the practitioner can determine the extent of disorder depending on a certain sensations that he/she perceives through his/her hand.
Those who are not familiar with Reiki Healing may guess that it would be difficult, however, it is not so difficult when you are practicing Reiki. While I do not mean that is the weakness of Western Reiki, it is obvious that the concept of Byosen is missing for some reason. In response, we focus on teaching what is Byosen and how to locate it. These lessons are highly appreciated by many of our pupils.
Meanwhile, I have to make a comment on dowsing, which brought me to write this article. Authentic Reiki Healing use no apparatus or tool at all. You can locate the Byosen by using nothing but only your hands, however, you can also do the same by applying a dowsing method.
Although we can not determine the level of Byosen and its profound condition to the date, locating the Byosen is very helpful. Despite it is slightly away from authentic Reiki Healing and I do not have much dowsing experiences so far, I have strong interests in dowsing.
I hope to learn dowsing deeper and in more detail whenever I can find the opportunity. And, I expect to get better treatment results by combining other helpful tools and methods while respecting and leveraging traditional Reiki Healing.
