THE ORIGIN OF REIKI
The Reiki Art of Natural Healing was discovered at the turn of the century by Dr Mikao Usui. He believed the teachers such as Jesus and Buddha were in contact with a transcendent source of energy when they taught and performed healing.
He believed that this source is always present. His question was - how to make contact with it? To find an answer, Dr Usui went on a quest. He spent many years traveling, studying ancient texts from both Eastern and Western traditions. These years of study and prayer prepared him for a deep meditation in which he received the gift of healing.
Dr Usui shared his knowledge with others. His method of teaching and healing was passed from Master to teacher to student. This healing art is known as Usui Shiko Ryoho or The Usui System of Natural Healing.
