A message from Edie Britt:
information below is from my Reiki Level I Handbook, which I make
available to all of my students. Some of the content was originally
written by my first Reiki Master, Karen Poitinger, but I have
incorporated my own thoughts and work into it, as I know she would
want me to. I would also like to credit my second Reiki
Master, Trish Mahajan for helping me to move forward on my path
and for encouraging me to never doubt my ability to attain my
goals. My wish is that this information can be used to help you find your
highest good. Please note that it is copyrighted, but you may

Reiki Balancing is a simple laying on of hands to send healing energy. It is a practice as old as instinct. It is a natural reaction to place our hands on a wound or where there is pain, to ease the sensation. Animals do this by licking a wound for the same reason we apply touch. This energy is called many things, but whatever name we give it, it comes from the Source. The Reiki Practitioner brings this energy through their body and sends it to the person receiving it by using their hands as a tool. It can be experienced by the person receiving it in a variety of ways. Some feel a radiating heat moving through their body, some feel extreme relaxation, some may feel cold, while others may experience a feeling of clarity.
everyone Has this energy in and around us,, why bother with Reiki
Reiki do for me?
The energy exchanged during a Reiki session creates positive changes and empowers all systems of the body for optimum health. It works to bring balance to you physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally. The "total you" will benefit by receiving this energy. Over time, it can enhance intuition, meditation and your personal spiritual and physical evolution and it promotes natural healing.
Reiki replace medicine?
is a Reiki Practitioner or Master?
What is the
difference between a Practitioner and a Master?
Master is a common term in the East, and refers to one who teaches. A Reiki Master is not a guru, but simply a Practitioner who has worked at and developed their level of intent and commitment to healing so that they are qualified and responsible enough to pass it on to others. Master does not imply anything more than that.
Is Reiki some
"New Age" healing technique?
What is the
history of Reiki?
This "original" and often dissonant Reiki material are being creatively woven together in an attempt to reconstruct the "truth" about Reiki, and itís origins, history, teachings and practices.
Before we go further, we need to discuss a particularly Japanese concept (though perhaps it is far more universal) - referred to as tatemae. This concept has to do with maintaining a harmonious society. For us to comprehend this Japanese mind-set we need to understand that in the final analysis Japanese consciousness is not overly concerned with hard-fact reality. They seek to find a reality that everyone can agree about. A compromise, an agreed upon version of the truth, even if itís a fantasy, is the best solution, as long as everyone consents to believe. Let us choose to believe that hard facts are not facilitating healing energies, but instead it is Universal Healing Energy. We are here today to access that energy which is inherently ours, and to refine it, concentrate it and allow it to flow within us and guide us to our highest healing good.
Mikao Usui was born August 15th, 1865 in the Gifu district in Japan. He died at age 62 on March 9th, 1926 in Fukuyama, Hiroshima. Usui was not a Christian and may not have been a Buddhist. It is thought that he may have been a spiritualist and a psychic. People who do his kind of work were called "Rei Jyutu Ka". The definition of that term is "people who have spiritual skill". It was during the time of pursuing these activities and work that he began his quest for healing and undertook an extensive study of the healing phenomena of historyís greatest spiritual leaders, including Jesus of Nazareth, and Buddha.
Mikao Usui-Sensei found the information that he sought in Sanskrit, the oldest known form of writing. What he found was a formula of how Buddha did healing. Unable to apply the formula and symbols he underwent what can be described as a vision-quest on the holy mountain of Kori-yama, where he fasted, meditated and followed the directions in the formula for twenty-one days. The symbols appeared to him on the last day, enveloped in light, and he left the mountain knowing how to heal. In 1922 he began a healing society in Tokyo, Japan and started giving treatments. Usui created the three degrees or ranks of Reiki which he called Shoden (First Teaching), Okuden (Inner Teaching) and Shinpiden (Mystery Teaching). He moved to Nakano, Tokyo in 1925 and expanded his healing center. After the discovery and development of the Usui system, he devoted himself to healing and began teaching Reiki to others. Before his transition Mikao Usui gave the Master attunement to sixteen teachers , one of whom was Chujiro Hayashi.
Dr. Chujiro Hayashi
Usui-Sensei passed his knowledge and skills onto his close friend and collaborator, Chujiro Hayashi. He was given the attunements for all three Reiki degrees by Usui in 1925 when Dr Hayashi was 47. This was just one year before Dr. Usui passed on.
Hayashi-Sensei went on to further develop the Usui system of healing. He opened a clinic in Tokyo and kept detailed records fo the treatments given. This information evolved into the standard hand positions and the system of three degrees (and their attunement processes) as we know them today. Prior to his death in 1941 Hayashi passed Reiki to Madame Hawayo Takata.
Hawayo Takata was a Japanese-American widow. Takata-Sensei brought the Reiki healing modality from Japan to the west (Hawaii) in the late 1930's (she received her Master Level initiation from Hayashi-Sensei in 1938), and with the actual Reiki modality, came the story which is familiar to just about everyone who has ever attended a Takata lineage Reiki class of Usui Sensei and the origins of Reiki.
Madame Takataís grand-daughter Phyllis Furumoto is the Western Reiki Grand Master and is still practicing today.
The one thing that practitioners agree upon is that Reiki has been with us as long as we have been here. It is the same Universal Healing energy used by Jesus and Buddha, and other enlightened Masters.
I would recommend exploration of the various types of Reiki, and to continue to update yourself on the History of Reiki, but most of all, for you to follow your heart. Do not get caught up in the details of where, why or which form, but rather FEEL which fits you best, and know that you have made the choice that is best for your highest good.
