  2. 2. <ul><li>August 15, 1865- March 9, 1926 </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Mikao Usui is considered the founder of Reiki </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  3. 3. <ul><li>A Brief overview Mikao Usui. </li></ul><ul><li>What is Reiki? </li></ul><ul><li>The five principles . </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki symbols. </li></ul><ul><li>How does Reiki work? </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits of Reiki. </li></ul><ul><li>What is a Reiki Master? </li></ul><ul><li>How is Reiki done? </li></ul><ul><li>What does Reiki feel like? </li></ul><ul><li>What Reiki is or isn’t. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  4. 4. <ul><li>The story is unclear, but from various sources it has been revealed the Dr. Usui received the gift of Reiki after a 21 day fast at Mt. Kurama near Kyoto. </li></ul><ul><li>From this discovery, he began to teach and share Reiki with many people. </li></ul><ul><li>He founded the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai and initiated students so that they may become Reiki Masters. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Word Reiki (ray-key) can be explained as Universal Energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Rei= Spiritually guided or wisdom from Divine </li></ul><ul><li>Ki= Life force energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki is holistic. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a healing art (using meditation and intention) that reduces stress and increases relaxation. </li></ul><ul><li>Through Reiki our inner healing light expands, balancing our mind, body and soul. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  6. 6. <ul><li>As taught by Dr. Mikao Usui: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At least for today, (Kyo dake wa), </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t get angry. (Okura na). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not worry. (Shin pai su na). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be grateful. (Kansha shite). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Work hard. (Gyo wo hage me). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be kind to others. (Hito ni shinsetsu ni). </li></ul></ul>JMBG. REIKI. (May have slightly different paraphrased translations)
  7. 7. <ul><li>The symbols are used in the attunement process and treatment. </li></ul><ul><li>The symbols are believed to have been added to Usui’s system of Reiki after him. </li></ul><ul><li>There are five symbols (sometimes the symbols vary): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reiki symbol. (Universal Life Force Energy). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cho Ku Rei. (Power symbol). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sei Hei Ki. (Mental emotional symbol). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hon Sha Ze She Nen. (Distance symbol). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dai Ko Myo. (Master symbol). </li></ul></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  8. 8. <ul><li>Reiki is considered “hands on healing” in technique; however clothes are not removed, and there is no touching of private areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Within each person there lies an inner energy system, called Chakras. </li></ul><ul><li>If those energy systems are blocked from stress, fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, etc. it manifests in ways that make us “ill”. </li></ul><ul><li>The American Institute of Stress (www.stress.org) states that stress is the “#1 health problem in the US.” </li></ul><ul><li>Through the holistic technique of Reiki, a person can reach a state of relaxation, thus allowing the body to release stress. </li></ul><ul><li>When stress is released, a body can refocus energy into a more positive direction. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki promotes health, healing and positivity. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki uses specific techniques in order to transmit subtle energy to a person. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  9. 9. <ul><li>Reduction of stress. </li></ul><ul><li>Accelerated healing process. </li></ul><ul><li>Release of toxins in the body. </li></ul><ul><li>Balance of Chakras. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Realignment causes better chi (energy) flow through the energy systems (chakras). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flushes blockages of energy. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Aid in healing relationships. </li></ul><ul><li>Awaken spirituality. </li></ul><ul><li>Release of blockage can aide in communication with others, enhance creativity, elevate moods. </li></ul><ul><li>Assist with manifesting goals. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  10. 10. <ul><li>A Reiki Master has been attuned and trained to: </li></ul><ul><li>Practice Reiki as a holistic healing technique. </li></ul><ul><li>Attune others and teach them Reiki techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>Be a conduit for the universal energy through intent, prayer and specifically taught technique. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  11. 11. <ul><li>Through prayer, intent and proper Reiki technique. </li></ul><ul><li>A person may lay down on a massage table, sit in a reclining chair or be far away (long distance). </li></ul><ul><li>The Reiki Master will gently send energy to the energy systems in the recipient’s body using special symbols, and placing of hands (again, hands are not placed on personal areas of the body, they hover over the body). </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  12. 12. <ul><li>Reiki sessions are different for everyone. </li></ul><ul><li>Some feel relaxed, light, tingling, warmth, coolness. </li></ul><ul><li>Even if you don’t feel it, it doesn’t mean the Reiki “isn’t working” the energy does what it needs to do. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  13. 13. <ul><li>Positive. </li></ul><ul><li>Spiritual. </li></ul><ul><li>Relaxing. </li></ul><ul><li>For everyone, every age, every religion, every walk of life. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  14. 14. <ul><li>Reiki is not replacement for medical advice or visits. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki Masters are not doctors or psychiatrists and cannot prescribe medications. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki is not sexual and will never violate. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki is not evil. </li></ul><ul><li>Reiki is not a religion, it is a spiritual practice. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
  15. 15. <ul><li>I hope this has helped you to learn a little more about Reiki. Perhaps you will be less apprehensive to try it out. </li></ul><ul><li>If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. </li></ul>JMBG. REIKI.
