“Question: Is it (Reiki) a shinrei ryoho (a psychic, spiritual method of healing)?

Answer: Correct, we could call it shinrei ryoho. However, it would also be possible to
call it physical therapy since energy and light radiate from all the body parts of the person
who is giving the treatment. Energy and light mainly radiate from the eyes, the mouth,
and the hands of the giver of the treatment. At the same time, the treatment giver either
fixes his eyes for two or three minutes on the afflicted parts of the body, blows on them,
or gently massages them. Toothaches, headaches, stomachaches, swelling of the chest,
nerve pain, bruises, cuts, burns, and so forth, simply heal. However, chronic diseases are
not as easy to treat. But the fact is that even one single treatment of a chronic disease
shows a (positive) effect. I ask myself how this phenomenon can be explained in the
sense of medical science. Well, the reality is always more impressive than fiction could
ever be. If you would see the results (that a Reiki treatment brings), you would have to
agree with me. Even someone who does not want to believe it can't deny the reality (the
result, the truth).”
Frank Arjava Petter: Reiki, The Legacy of Dr. Usui, translated from the original
hikkei passed out by Mikao Usui (a Tendai Buddhist btw) to his students.

The word itself (ray key) is derived from two Japanese kanji characters,
rei=universal and ki=life energy (sound familiar?). This occult tradition originated n the
late 1800/early 1900s (again, sound familiar?) by a Dr. Mikao Usui (ala Valentinus’
Apostolic Gnosis & Jules Doinel’s Spiritual Succession?) and continues 2day. In short
Reiki (originally -n English @ least- the Usui System of Natural Healing) as a whole can
b seen as another example ov an occult theurgic organization, this time hailing & healing
from Japan. We will not here make U a Reiki Master (no one did Usui), yet We will get
U started on the path. These ReiSources should suffice, but as most students rarely read
the actual instructions I’ll fill n some blanks 4 the earnest aspirant.

“Just for today, I will be grateful.

Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly
Just for today, I will respect all life.”

The First Degree Practitioner is turned on, or attuned, & opens to the energy
force. Most learn for the first time (Usui included an apprenticeship) about the
procedures and systems such as the mythos, 5 Ideals/Principles (think yama & niyama),
standard hand positions (nyasa) introduced/developed by Dr. Hayashi (originally 5), the
chakra system (not originally n Reiki either) and other nfo grafted on2 the proverbial
vine. One should notice this is typical ov most introductory element al practices & ov
theurgic organizations n general after initial founder passes.
Traditionally the four attunements n Reiki I r followed by a 21 day cleansing
period during witch one goes through a cycle of purification and balancing ov the 7
chakras one per day in three cycles ov repetitions using Self & Individual Treatment
techniques taught @ your initiation, I mean attunement. These treatments both start @
the head covering forehead, eyes and cheeks 4 3 2 5 moments/minutes.
So, how many hand positions r there & where? Some say 5, 10, 17, 21, 26, or
more (or less!?). This diversity rub mostly stems from kore methods evolving over time
through different teachers & lineages, just 2 many kooks n the kitchen. There is also an
unmentioned secrecy issue witch I will not touch up on. In short there can b 17 Self & 26
Individual Treatment hand positions. Y not 26 4 both? There can b if u desire. All r
basically self-explanatory and/or knowable, some might say Class B (“the result of
ordinary scholarship, enlightened and earnest”). Self Treatments r ultimately based &
only known 2 yourself, yet there r base standards (remember Usui originally used only 5).
If u know the alphabet (26 letters) u can @ least easily memorize the Individual
Treatment hand positions, rolling over @ R. Practice makes perfect.
I glossed over b4 the mythopia ov Reiki, usually the last aspect taught n Shoden
among some teachers. Either from the Meiji Emperor, Tibet or his own research, like the
Dee/Kelly Enochian system It Works. Offhand I can think ov @ least 14 different
modern offshoots (more precisely styles and/or schools) witch stem from Dr. Makio Usui.
The ReiSources listed & overtly named throughout this thread will give 1 extensive
historical/lineal information, but here r a few names & dates ov import 4 the anal.
Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai
Main Lineage
Dr. Makio Usui, 1865-1926, founder, sayd 2 have trained 16 masters & 2000 students
Mr. Ushida, ? President after Usui

Usui Shiki Ryoho

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, GF May 10, 1940, trained by Usui & trains himself…
Mrs. Hawayo Takata, Christmas Eve 1900 – 12.11.1980, late 1930s
Reiki II

The Second Degree introduces the 3 Reiki Practitioner symbols as a means to

focus/convey the intended/willed purpose ov the treatment, even over space & time
supposedly. Personally I think they should represent the power ov each degree & given n
that order, but Usui or someone chose 2 do it this way. These have been & r highly held
n secrecy & traditionally ritualistically burned during the Reiki II degree session, yet the
proverbial beans r published everywhere (see ReiSources) & there4 corrupted by the
Grapevine Syndrome (esp. the Master symbol). That sayd, Okuden offers traditional
occult theory & gives U the tools 2 practice. Hopefully 2 some this is al déjà vu. Not
necessarily Shinto animism but obviously simple sympathetic magick (SSM). Symbols
as psychic tools exist n every culture. Whether U calls them fetishes, idols, magick
squares, mandalas, sigils, or yantras it’s all the same animal. N order 2 activate these
volkes usually draw the symbol on paper, skin or n air & chant/say its name/mantra 3
times, either mentally and/or physically, depending on session/treatment.
So, what r they?! N order 2 actually use & appreciate I’ve grouped the images @
the end ov this thread, easier 2 print & visualize (Thank U Visio Technical!). That way U
can loose my crap & still have the goodies. I will not include extensive commentary on
these symbols either, just a list ov helpful correspondences 4 assimilation. Jump a head
& reference them while We continue.

Cho Ku Rei
Chakra plural or phonetically?
Power Symbol
Use 2 begin treatments & n conjunction w/other symbols

Sei He Ki
Left half reminiscent ov OM?
Mental/Emotional Healing Symbol
Activates unconscious mind

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen
5 Elements n Japanese?
Distance Symbol
The bridge
No past, no present, no future
Draw from head 2 toe
Reiki III

The Third Degree is where U learn how 2 turn others on & has been split by some
n2 2 subdivisions (c The DL above). Now b4 the megalomaniac n u demands 2 b called
Master Master the term historically means Teacher, or 1 who can teach because they
know how & r authorized by the-powers-that-may-be. Anywho (or is it whom?), the
Master symbol (some say symbols) is introduced along with advanced attuning &
teaching techniques.
As alluded 2 above and throughout this thread many things have been added after
Usui. Luckily 4 the Practitioner their symbols r tried & true, but Seichim, Vedic,
Atlantean & Tibetan components corrupt the traditional Master symbol after the original
Master passed on. Now that might sound a little harsh & insulting 2 true Teachers, but
Atlantis?! Anyway, as with the Practitioner symbols I’ve grouped the Traditional Master
Symbol (think Master Plan) Di Ko Myo & a few helpful correspondences @ the end ov
this thread 4 assimilation/use. The ReiSources above provide additional information &
images ov non-traditional symbols (or n front ov U).
Symbol &/or symbols aside, Shinpiden continues 2 acquire & reveal close occult
correspondences with other theurgic organizations (Japan n da house!) until the lines blur
&/or merge. I’m talking specifically about the Microcosmic Orbit technique ov
Traditional Ayurvedic & Chinese Medicine fame (& origin) taught n @ least modern
Reiki lineages. Even a ritualist will (or should) recognize it. Bing thus enlightened no
matter what system the kore teachings r al the same, but a supposedly original Japanese
system circa early/late 18/1900s 2 use anything faintly Chinese! This comes from
referring 2 QiGong & Reiki techniques bing similar 2 a QiGong Master ov Beijing, but
that’s another thread. An’ 2 think it al came from the Ganges (some say), named n honor
ov a simple sacred weed. N short everyone uses the techniques n 1 form or another
bcause they work, n spite ov name &/or origin. Do not think by this diatribe I insinuate
the MCO technique especial (even though it is), just not 2 Reiki.
So, what is this MCO? Students ov mystical anatomy know it & the principle
components by different names 4 similar systems. Some call It energy circulation,
pranatherapie, pranayama &/or Hsiao Chou Tien. Various schools employ a # ov locks,
gangs, or bandhas 2 create a complete &/or open/close circuit guided by mental
energy/intent/will (SSM) up back from perineum 2 neck & over head down through the
front. Again, locking the gate (ti-gang/mula bandha/anal lock) @ Hui Yin (Yin
Confluence) the energy travels up GV (back) as U bridge the terminals ov GV & CV
(front) w/tongue @ junction n Palatine fossa. Know not a great secret or absolute
example, those U will find n the ReiSources &/or association w/sayd occult theurgic
organizations. Here We only hope 2 initiate actual study & practice, not dzou-huo ru-mo
(playing w/fire & provoking demons).
2 end, as degrees progress so do techniques & knowledge on previous degrees -
plus price. Volkes account exorbitant fees &/or simony 4 Mastership (as usual ov
theurgic organizations). Compare cost 2 a typical college tuition 4 degree/career & it’ll
come out close. Personally I do not like &/or care 4 money, yet why can’t Mammon
serve God? Everyone does need 2 make a living, & the Law is 4 AL. B a ware ov
Masters mentoring mindless minions & true Teachers n the oddest places. Njoy…
