Reiki History

Reiki History

Mikao Usui (1865-1926) founded the practice of Reiki in Japan near the beginning of the 20th century. Reiki (pronounced “Ray – Key”) refers to Universal Life Force Energy. The Usui system of Reiki is a natural healing method that was brought to America by Mrs. Hawayo Takata (1900-1980) with permission from Chujiro Hayashi (1879-1940) who was taught by Usui.

Author Marianne Williamson in her book “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles” said: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.”

“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. As we let our own light shine, we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
