originated from Mt. Kurama, Kyoto Japan, developed by Mr. Mikao Usui,
in 1912 in special treatment done 21 days continuously.
One of the
benefits of Reiki is how easy it is to acquire, practice, and teach.
Thousands of teachers offer a variety of styles, which for the most
part are reasonably priced. People are free to treat
themselves or others or to start a Reiki business offering sessions
When giving sessions, practitioners can follow the
training they received, innovate according to their inner guidance,
or add techniques from other healing methodsT
eachers are free to teach the same way they were
taught, add techniques and ideas they feel are useful, or create new
systems of Reiki with new symbols, attunements, and healing
energies. All this takes place in most states in the US without any
government restrictions, regulation, or licensing requirements.
This freedom to teach and use Reiki has allowed it
to develop and expand quickly. While no official records are
available, a good guesstimate is that there are at least a million
people with Reiki training in the US now. There are many more
throughout the world, and the numbers continue to grow! This growth,
in turn, has undoubtedly helped improve the health and well-being of
a major segment of the population while at the same time lowering
health-care costs and creating a source of income for many people.
Reiki is truly a miracle in many ways, and it is important that we
acknowledge how fortunate we are to be able to freely practice such
an important skill. It is also important for us to be aware that
there are forces currently present, or that could develop, that
could take this freedom away One way our freedom to practice Reiki
could be unnecessarily limited is through government licensing or
other forms of government regulation. This possibility is real?it
has already happened in one state, and attempts to restrict Reiki
have occurred in other states or could occur unless we take action.
