What is reiki?
Mikao Usui discovered a method in the late 19th century to reconnect people with the universal energy of life. The full name of this method is Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho, which in Dutch is also called the Usui System of Natural Healing. A literal translation of reiki could be the power of the sun or life energy.
Reiki is the energy that everyone needs daily to live, to keep the body healthy and to develop the mind. A reiki treatment brings this energy, which we all need so badly on a daily basis. Getting Reiki flowing is done through the laying on of hands. A Reiki master has mastered all aspects of Reiki, has integrated this into his or her life, and is able to restore the energy balance between Reiki and man to unity. After a Reiki 1 course, the student is able, completely independently, to treat himself and others with Reiki.
That is the beauty and simplicity of Reiki.
When do you apply Reiki?
Reiki comes to everyone’s path sooner or later. The reasons are diverse. For example, Reiki is ideal for dealing with stress and busyness. During a Reiki treatment the Reiki energy starts to flow and has a healing effect. Reiki improves the relationship with yourself, others and the universe as a whole, enabling you to get the most out of your life. Reiki heals with physical complaints, emotional and mental states through spiritual insights.
Reiki brings numerous complaints and ailments back into balance with life.
Simplicity and beauty
The Reiki essence is wonderful and simple. After the Reiki 1 course, Reiki works for you. Always and everywhere. We call this the gift of Reiki. If you have received this gift through initiation, your life becomes more complete and simpler.
From becoming aware to being aware
The energy of Reiki brings life processes into balance with life. Body and mind become healthier, stronger and more natural. This improvement works on all levels. Emotions and problems that no longer serve you disappear, leaving room for you to see and experience things more clearly and in the right perspective. Your consciousness grows physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
The Usui System of Natural Healing was discovered at the end of the 19th century by Mikao Usui, a Japanese spiritual teacher. He passed on the gift of Reiki to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. The latter passed the gift of Reiki to Hawayo Takata and later to her granddaughter Phyllis Furumoto. Today Johannes Reindl is the guardian of the gift of Reiki.
The Reiki Healing Institute was founded after years of studying the gift of Reiki because we have faced great challenges as a society. The Reiki Healing Institute works with the traditional way of Reiki practice and treatment, including the training of 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree students.
The gift of Reiki has traveled all over the world since its inception, so several organizations have become involved. This is not a bad thing; however, the Reiki Healing Institute stands for the quality of passing on the gift of Reiki. The Reiki Ryoho Foundation is the guardian of the quality of the traditional gift of Reiki. This is an umbrella body that registers recognized Reiki Masters and Reiki Practitioners according to certain quality standards. These Reiki Masters teach traditionally and are clearly identifiable by their affiliation with Reiki Ryoho.
The three Reiki Degrees
The Usui System of Natural Healing contains three degrees. Each degree has its own depth and represents a new phase of insights, perspectives, growth, development and associated possibilities. Each degree is complete in itself in unity as a completed whole. Each Reiki practitioner decides for himself what depth is needed on his path. There is no right or wrong for that.
After the 1st degree Reiki course, the gift of Reiki has been received and one can practice and treat Reiki independently through the imposition of hands. According to traditional quality standards, the 1st degree consists of a number of fixed components that have been passed on from Reiki Master to Reiki Student since its inception.
During the 1st degree Reiki course, the ability to transmit Reiki and make it work through the hands is transferred from the teaching Reiki Master to the Reiki Student through initiations. All parts of the course are covered in detail so that the student is equipped to give Reiki independently.
