History of Reiki
Reiki was established By Dr. Mikao Ushue at the end of the 19th century he was the principal of a Christian university in Japan some student ask him if he believed in the Bible. Dr. M.U. said yes, I believe in Bible. The students referred than to the Bible quoting text of Jesus when he made the sick well just through a touch. The students asked the doctor, How can we too treat people in this way? The doctor says I don’t know how it’s possible, but I believe it is it. The knew the possibility of Reiki without yet knowing the concrete theory.
Dr. Ushue ended up resigning from the university to dedicate his career to finding this “Life force”. He left Japan for Chicago University (U.S.A) for its redigiovs studies department .His practice in the U.S. was intense and frequent, but often without success . while in Chicago, however, he noticed that Buddhist monks practiced something like this sought. After treatment. For this reason. Dr. Ushue left Chicago University to return to Japan.
Back in Japan, the doctor studied with Bhuddhist monasteries, but without success. The then turned to Jain ideology and treatment, but his studies there were unsuccessful also.When his studies in Japan were exhausted, he moved he moved on to China. There he learned the language, practice and customs. But no “Life force”
He left china for India, where again he immersed himself in the culture by learning the language and Sanskrit Mantra Finally, he once again returned to Japan, where, with his new worldly knowledge, he knew much, but still he did know Reiki. However, after his study with Sanskrit Mantra, he was able to properly prepare himself for the twenty-One Day Practice. Finally, true Knowledge!
For the Twenty-One Day Practice, he chose the Kuriyama Mountain in Kyoto to ascend by himself with just twenty one stones. Atop the Mountain, the doctor prayed for twenty days without result. But on his final day, the twenty first, he found that upon opening his wyes to the surprise a single ray penetrated deeply into his presence. The doctor felt scared, unnerved as if perhaps he were dying. He fainted while the doctor lay still, he saw many colors pas before his eyes. These were like sparks, and the Doctor felt the life force of Reiki sparking inside of him.
Several hours later, he awoke feeling supreme, elated and powerful-he was successful!
Joyously, the doctor ran down the mountain, but not without trial. As the doctor ran, the doctor tripped on a loose stone, which split his toe. Blood pushed forth, and the doctor touched his wound channeling his new found power. After mere moments, the blood had not only stopped but the wound was healed entirely.
Back in town, the doctor was very hungry. An older man recognized the unshaven doctor as a holy man, so when advised the doctor to only eat soup or juice – after such a long fast, as is common with Holy Men, One should restart a diet. But the doctor said, “no, I’m famished” The doctor ate heavily. Yet remarkably was fine.
In the restaurant, the restaurantier’s daughter was experiencing bad tooth pain. Approaching her pain as a test for his success, the doctor applied Reiki treatment to the girl’s cheek, and her pain ceased. The doctor was ecstatic! After searching for fifteen years and twenty one days, finally the doctor had found, or earned, the understanding behind Reiki.
Elsewhere, an elderly man that Dr. Ushue once turned to back in the Jain monastery was experiencing the aches and pains of old age, especially of the knees. The doctor treated the elderly man, and he was healed.
Then at the beginning of the Twentieth century, the doctor took under wing a shining student named Chujiro Hayashi, an ex-Navy serviceman. Hayashi received full training of the Reiki practice. Dr, Ushue trained him with the idea of handing over the responsibility of his new founded Reiki school and study to Hayashi. Hayashi now a doctor himself, furthered Ushue’s theory by conipring the idea that Reiki is able to go to the roots of disease. Hayashi theorized that Reiki is not only a treatment, but also a protectorant – it can word off disease and ailment, too.
In 1935, a Japanese – American woman name Takata Hawayo was experiencing severe ailments and disorders after the passing on her husband. The disorders were so bad, that doctors advised he to return to her homeland of Japan for surgery. Hawayo, in compliance, Returned to Japan, but while she was in the hospital preparing for her operation, Hawayo came across a pamphlet advertising Dr. Hayashi’s Reiki clinic. She opted to leave the hospital and pending surgery to instead pursue treatment with Dr. Hayashi. After extensive treatments with Dr. Hayashi, Hawayo felt well again. Doctor could not find even truces of her previous almients, and the medical community dismissed her need for surgery.
After her full recovery, Hawayo took it upon herself to learn this practice, Reiki, and to treat and teach others around the world.

Synopsis of Reiki

Meditation is not a technique but a way of life. Meditation means 'a cessation of the thought process' . It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns . The observer (one who is doing meditation) realizes that all the activity of the mind is reduced to one.
The word meditation, is derived from two Latin words : meditari(to think, to dwell upon, to exercise the mind) and mederi (to heal). Its Sanskrit derivation 'medha' means wisdom. At present many different kind of meditation is famous. But all meaning is same, just to control the mind and concentrate on one point. It is very difficult work to do control of mind. Because mind always think some things peoples get sleep, but mind doesn't sleep mind can see good and bad dreams. When someone do meditation just his mind is focus only on one point, than he feel more enjoy during the meditation.
As you focus your mind on your third eye, then your full attention is only on your third eye. After some time you can feel you are looking different colors, just like red, blue, green, white, orange & pink etc. Few peoples see different flowers and some feel their body is getting warm up, and some feel cold. Few people feel vibration in their chakras of body. Everyone has a different kind of feelings. If you feel enjoy during the meditation than your mind will be control. And then you can't feel the pain in your body and you will be able to sit for a long time in one position during the meditation. But if your mind doesn't control than you feel little bit pain or tiredness in your body.
Precautions / to be avoided: Cigarettes, coffee, pickle, chicken, fish, eggs, more spicy or oily food. If you follow the above, your five elements control and your seven chakra will work properly in your body. And any kind of mentally and physically problem will be cured. Especially any kind of mental problem meditation is very good.
We teach regular practice of a balanced series of techniques, the energy of the body and mind can be liberated and the quality of consciousness can be expanded. This is not a subjective claim but is now being investigated by the scientists and being shown by an empirical fact.
