The Re-Introduction of REIKI Healing on planet Earth?  

 THE  REIKI STORY

This is the story of Dr Mikao Usui, originator of the Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing. The only history we have was put on tape by a Mrs. Takata, a Reiki Master trained by a Dr Havashi who was taught by and worked with Dr Usui. Dr Usui was apparently a genius. a great philosopher and scholar. He was a Christian minister and the principal of the Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan.

The REIKI story before Dr.Usui

Reiki was a system that was devised in ancient Atlantis.
It was created by a high priest at the Temple of Healing, who is now known as the Ascended Master St Germain.  This  priest took himself away from the central temples  at Atlantis, and journeyed to the far mountains of Atlantis creating his  own tribe, or clan, of Atlanteans  called the  Inspirers. The Inspirers disconnected themselves from the mainland Atlantean dwellers. They  sought  to find  a technique  and way  to equalize the  spiritual  development of  all Atlanteans,  in order  to  abolish  and  banish race differences which  were judged  by  the psychical  and spiritual  progression of  the Atlantean race. Many of the Atlanteans  who were considered spiritually and psychically backwards were used as slaves  by the priests and  priestesses and  the Royal  families of  the Atlantean Island.  St Germain in that lifetime was given  a number of symbols which could be projected directly into the energy system of an individual, and which  would raise  their vibration to a sufficient  level where  they would transcend their present spiritual handicap and  be equals amongst  the Atlanteans. He  was given twenty-two  symbols, a  Master number.  When Atlantis was  destroyed St  Germain journeyed  with several of his fellow brothers to ancient  Tibet.  They tried  in this  place to  continue this practice of  raising spiritual Consciousness. In order to see  how this practice would  ensue they  gave  three  symbols  to  a  number  of individuals who were  in close  proximity  to the  Atlantean landing.  Many of  them used  the symbols  and the  spiritual evolution that they brought well. Others  however used  this power in a dark negative and baneful way. They perverted and contorted the symbols, transforming and changing them. St Germain and the Inspirers decided at  this time  not to  give the full twenty-two symbols to any individuals, in order  to keep the full  power that they thought  would corrupt  these individuals minds from their grasp.  The Reiki  system as it is practiced today is an incomplete system. It  is a system which  comprises of many  symbols, some  which are  directly drawn from the Akashic records and have been given to mankind by St Germain, but some which have been invented, created and draw upon a different type of energy.

The Challenge

As he took the podium one Sunday in the late 1800's, Dr Usui noticed a half dozen students in the front pew. Usually students sat at the back. One of the students immediately raised a hand. He stated that the six were co graduate in two months. but before leaving they wanted to settle an issue. First they wanted to know if Dr Usui had absolute faith in the Bible as it reads'? "Yes." Then did he believe that ,Jesus could heal by laying on hands'? again Dr Usui said he did believe. The student said that he and the others also wanted to believe and would Dr Usui please give them one demonstration. Would he please heal the blind or cure the lame or just simply walk on water? Dr Usui said that although he believed these things had been done. he himself had not learned to do them.  The spokesman said, "Thank you very much. We can only say that your belief in the Bible is a blind faith. and we do not want to have a blind faith." Dr Usui's response was that he could not demonstrate at that time but would someday like to prove it. He said he would find how to do it. then come back to show them. With that he resigned, on the spot. The next day he made plans to study the Bible in a Christian country.

 

The Search

 Dr Usui chose America. He entered a university, possibly University of Chicago, but no one is certain. He found that the Bible teachings were not significantly different from what he had studied in Japan. No one he met there knew how Jesus healed. However, while at the university, he studied other philosophies, and he found in Buddhism a passage saying Buddha healed by laying-on-of-hands. So for the remainder of his seven years in the United States, he concentrated on Buddhism, hoping to find a formula for the healing arts. He didn't. He left there to study in a Buddhist country - Japan. He returned to his own city of Kyoto. Kyoto had the most people and the biggest monasteries in Japan. He decided to visit all the monasteries starting with the largest, the Shin.

At the Shin, Usui asked a monk if the Buddhist Sutras gave accounts of Buddha healing. "Yes." He asked if the 5hin monks had mastered the art of healing the body. He was told, "We monks do not have time for the physical in reaching the spiritual growth. Spiritual healing is first." Usui walked away into the jungle to visit other temples. Their stories were the same. None of the monastery monks could heal. His last stop was at the Zen temple. Here he heard again that the monks were very, very busy and had little time for the body healing - but they were sure that someday, during meditation, they would receive that great light and then they would know how to heal. Dr Usui decided to stay on and study all their secrets. He spent the next three years studying the Sutras but without success. He then got permission to stay on at the Zen temple to do independent research.

 Dr Usui learned Chinese, because the Japanese Sutras were translated from Chinese. He then mastered Sanskrit, because Buddha was a Hindu. While working on Sanskrit he found a healing formula. There was no mistaking what it was. but the 2,500 year old formula had to be interpreted and tested. He told himself. "I cannot guarantee myself whether I will live through it, but if I don't try the test, years of study will be wasted." He talked about his plan with the head Zen monk. The monk said Usui was a courageous man, and he could perform the test at the monastery.

Usui said he would rather do it on Mount Koriyama. a mountain known as an excellent place for meditation.

 

The Meditation

Dr Usui told the monk. "I will test myself for twenty-one days. If I do not some back on the night of the twenty-first day. on the twenty-second morning. send out a search party to find my body. I will be dead." Before departing he told the monks, "I shall go through this meditation without food - only water." He climbed the mountain.

On the mountain he found an old pine near the stream. He piled up twenty-one rocks and watered them. (I don't know why). He sat with his back to the tree with the rocks before him. He threw one rock away, then began his first meditation. He expected a phenomenon of some sort but had no idea what it might be or when. He read scripture, chanted, meditated. and drank water. He had no food with him. Days and nights came and went. The pile of stones dwindled. There was no phenomenon. Nothing.

On the twenty-first day, he work before dawn and threw away the last stone. The morning black was near absolute - no moon. no stars. Dr Usui meditated, knowing it was the last time. He opened his eyes expecting to see nothing, but there, on the horizon, he glimpsed a flicker of light. like a candle! He instinctively knew this was the phenomenon he had hoped for - and feared. Dr Usui braced himself. "It is happening and I am not going to even shut my eyes. I shall open them as wide as I can and witness what happens to the light."

The light moved towards him. It seemed to be accelerating as it approached. Usui became frightened, his courage faltered. "Oh, the light! Now I have a chance to avoid the light, to dodge! What shall I do!? If the light strikes me. I might burn!" But he began to brace himself. "This is best. I am not going to run away! I'm going to face it! Come! If this must be. hit me!! I am ready!" :and with that. he relaxed and, with eyes wide open, he saw the light strike in the centre of his forehead. "I made contact." he said as he fell backward from the force. When he came to, he thought that he had died because at first he couldn't see and he felt nothing. The light was gone. He heard roosters in the distance and knew it would soon be dawn.

Dr Usui sat, dazed. Then, off to his right, colored bubbles seemed to rise from the earth. Millions and millions of bubbles in rainbow colors danced before him. then moved to his left. Usui counted seven colors. "This is phenomena! I was blessed today!" A great white light came from his right. Golden symbols appeared, one after another. They radiated out in front of him, like on a movie screen, as if to say, "Remember! Remember!" He didn't read them so much with his eyes as with his mind. He studied and studied. then said, "Yes!" He recalled all he had learned in Sanskrit as the symbols moved in front of him as if they were saying, "This is it. this is it. Remember, remember."

 After the phenomena had passed. lie said "I must close my eyes. and for the last meditation please give me a vision." He closed his eves and saw the golden symbols in front of him.

 

The Miracles

It was over. "'Now. I can open my eves." As he regained awareness of his body. he was surprised to find no pain or hunger. "I feel my body is good. I'm going to stand up." He stood. "':My legs and feet are strong. I fast for twenty-one days. and still I feel I can walk back to Kyoto." his body felt well fed. "Well, this is a miracle- I'm not hungry. And I feel very light." He dusted himself off, picked up his cane and straw hat, then took the first steps of his twenty-five mile trek to Kyoto. The Zen monks were expecting him by sundown. Near the foot of the mountain, Dr Usui stubbed a big toe on a rock. The blow lifted the toenail. Blood spurted out. It hurt. The pain thumped with his heartbeat.

 

He sat down and held the toe in his hands. The pain subsided. The bleeding stopped. "Is it okay?" He continued to hold it till there was no more pain. Then he looked at the toe, he was amazed and delighted to see the nail back in its normal position. There was no indication of injury except dried blood. "This is a second miracle!"

A short distance later. he came upon a traditional mat and ashtray, which means in Japan there is an eating place near by and that all are welcome. He approached an old, unshaven man who was starting a fire in a hibachi. "Good morning old man." "Good morning, my dear monk, you are early." "Yes, I know. but may I have some leftover rice and some tea, and that piece of nori you just made? And I would like to have some salted cabbage and also some dried fish, if you have some." (This is a typical Japanese breakfast.) But the old gentleman was wise. He had served many monks after their extended meditations on this famous mountain. He knew the appearance of a seven day beard; he knew this monk had been without food for a much longer time. "I cannot let you have this rice and hot soup and all those other things, because you are going to have a huge indigestion. I have no medicine and cannot help you. Kyoto is far away. You will have to wait until I make a soft gruel."

"Thank you. You are very kind, but I think I shall try it." Dr Usui was feeling weak as he moved to a table to wait for the food. The old man thought, "Well, if he wants to do it his way, fine. I am not responsible." Soon, the man's fifteen Year old granddaughter brought a tray with lots of food. She was crying and had a towel wrapped under her chin, tied in rabbit ears on top of her head. '"My dear young girl, why do you cry."

The child sobbed. "Oh, my dear monk, three days and three nights I have a toothache so bad that I cannot stop my tears, and I cannot eat the whole time. The dentist is too far away, so I just suffer and cry." Dr Usui s heart opened to the child. He stood and put a hand on her swollen cheek. The girl began to blink her eyes. Dr Usui soon had both hands on her face. She suddenly cried out, "'My dear monk, You have just made magic! The toothache is gone!" Usui could hardly believe it. He hadn't really known what to expect from his impulsive action. "Is it really'? Are you telling me the truth?" It was true. she quickly removed the rabbit ears and was radiantly happy. Usui said. "Yes. now I believe you are well.

-The beaming child thanked him. then she ran off to her grandfather. "Look grandfather. I took off my rabbit ears! The toothache is gone? He is not an ordinary monk. he makes magic!!"

The grandfather. wiping his hands on his apron. walked over to Dr Usui. "My dear monk. you did us a great service. We are grateful. We do not have money but for our gratitude. there is no charge for the food. This is all we can offer." Dr Usui said, "Thank you! I will accept your gratitude. Thank you, very much. Now for my food." With that he turned to his food and eagerly shovelled it with chopsticks. He ate happily. The people watched and hoped this magic monk wouldn't suffer any kind of indigestion.

Later. Dr Usui reflected on these miracles. the third and fourth. Placing his hands on the child had again healed almost instantly, and he had suffered no ill effects from breaking a twenty-one day fast with a huge meal. "'Now. I am ready for my hike to the Zen temple. I shall be there by sundown according to schedule." And so he was.

The doctor was met at the temple gate by a young page boy. Dr Usui asked, "How is our dear monk?" "Oh, he's suffering from arthritis and back ache. He is in bed near the chapel stove." Before going to visit the monk, Usui went to his own room to bathe and put on clean clothes. He was then taken to the monk. "My dear monk, I am back. :My meditation was 'a success." The ailing monk was excited by this news and wanted the details. Dr Usui said. "Yes, of course, and while I talk. may I place my hands on your silk covers?" It was late at night when the doctor shared the last happy detail. He was about to leave when the old monk spoke up, "And by the way, my pain is all gone. I can sleep now. I don't need the stove, and my body feels wonderful - you say this is called Reiki?" (In English. Reiki means Universal Life Energy.)

 

The Reiki Experiment

Dr Usui slept in a bed for the first time in three weeks. Next morning, after breakfast, Dr Usui presented a question to all the temple monks. "What shall I do to experiment with this Reiki?" After much discussion it was decided that the best way to experiment was to go into one of the very big slums in Kyoto. The slums were playgrounds for most every kind of injury and disease including leprosy. They chose the largest slum.

Dr Usui walked into the slum as a monk vegetable peddler - dressed as a monk with two baskets of vegetables hanging from a pole. The beggars assembled quickly. Usui told them. "Please, I would be one of you. I would like to live here." in turn, he was told, "If you want to stay here, we have a chief. We shall call him." Shortly the chief beggar made his appearance. "I understand that you want to live here and become one of us." Usui answered yes. "In that case. give us vegetables.

And there is no need to wear new clothes here. we will give you initiation clothes. they undressed Dr Usui and found his money belt. The chief beggar said he had known the belt was there and that it would also have to be forfeited. Dr Usui was then allowed to dress in his beggar initiation costume - dirty. smelly rags.

The chief asked what Dr Usui was going to do in the slum. "I would like you to provide me with food and a cottage by myself. Then you can send me your sick and I will heal them." The chief found that to be a very good trade. "We have all kinds of diseases. even tuberculosis and leprosy. You are not afraid to touch them'? The doctor said as a healer he was not afraid of disease and promised to work sunup to sundown, so he would want meals delivered to the cottage. Agreed?

The next day many appeared at his door. Based on his own theory. the doctor categorized the sick. He believed disease was an effect resulting from some inner cause. He felt that in the younger patients the cause should be shallow and more easily treated. And this is the way it worked out. The older slum dwellers required more Reiki treatments and recovery sometimes took months. The young healed quickly. Usui sent healed patients to the Zen temple where they received a new name and a job in the city. He told them to become honest citizens, to forget the slums.

One evening, after seven long, hard years of Reiki healing, he was out walking through the slums when he spied a vaguely familiar face. "Who are you?" "Oh, you should remember. I was one of the first healed. The temple monks gave me a new name and found me a job. But now I am back. Begging is easier than hustling by myself." This was the greatest shock of the doctor's life. He threw himself to the ground and cried, cried like a heart broken child. 

Most of his former patients returned to the slums. Dr Usui now realized that after all the years of searching for a healing formula and these years in the slums. He had become preoccupied with the physical side of life; he had forgotten the spiritual. "Oh. what did I do? I did not save a soul. 5o the physical is number two and the spiritual is number one. All the churches were right. I was wrong. No beggars. no more beggars, no more beggars. It is my fault they come back. I did not teach them gratitude. They are here because they are greedy, greedy people. Want, want, want- nothing in return. If I had taught them the spiritual side first, then healed the body, it would have been effective. 1Io more beggars. No more healing." Dr Usui turned his back on the slums and walked away.

 

The Crusade

The doctor then launched a crusade to help unhappy, depressed people. He wanted to brighten their hearts and cleanse their characters, minds. and bodies. He traveled on foot to every temple in Japan. At each he invited locals to attend his lectures. (I assume he worked on the spiritual side then healed the physical.) After one of his lectures, he met Dr Chujiro Hayashi, a forty-five year old retired military man. Hayashi stayed with Dr Usui until Usui's death. Before his transition. Usui announced that Dr Hayashi was to continue this Usui System in the Art of Healing.

Dr Hayashi later trained Mrs. Takata. Between 1945 and 1970, she was the only living Reiki Master in the world. Between 1970 and 1980, she trained twenty-one Reiki Masters.... She was about eighty when she made her transition. Both Dr Hayashi and Mrs. Takata practiced and taught Reiki just as it had been passed on by the dear monk, Dr Mikao Usui. 

 DR CHUJIRO HAYASHI

It was at one of these lectures, in about 1925, that  Dr Usui is said to have met 45 year old Dr  Chujiro Hayashi, a retired Naval Commander. Dr Usui pointed out to Hayashi that he was too young to retire, and invited him to  join him in his crusade. Dr Hayashi accompanied him on his tour of Japan for many years, continuing his  system of  healing after  Dr Usui's death around 1930.  It was Dr Hayashi  who passed  the story of Dr Usui on to Mrs. Takata, saying that  he had  not changed Dr  Usui's original system; although it is claimed that it was Dr Hayashi who developed the  system of  standard hand positions, the  three  degrees  and  their attunement processes. He  opened a  very successful clinic in Tokyo, where Mrs. Takata became one of his patients. In about  1941 he predicted the approach of a great war, (World War II ) and realized that most of the men would be called up, including some of the 16 Reiki Masters that he had already created, so in order to preserve his development of Reiki, he passed his complete teachings on to two women, his wife Chie and  Hawayo Takata, whom he named as his successor. As a Naval reserve officer, he  had already been drafted,  but as a healer he refused to take life. On May 10, 1941, in  front of  several of his students, he psychically stopped his own heart, and chose his own death.

Born in 1900 in Hanamaulu, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii,  her parents, Mr. &  Mrs. Otogoro  Kawamura, were  poor immigrants from Japan, working  as pineapple  cutters. They had great hopes for their daughter and her future, naming her Hawayo after  the territory  of Hawaii. But she was  never physically strong, being too  small for  plantation work. 
  Instead  she took  several part  time jobs whilst still  at school, and on leaving became  a servant  at the plantation owner's house. During the next  twenty-four years she managed to  work  her  way  up  to  the position  of housekeeper and bookkeeper. In  1917 she married  the plantation  accountant Saichi, whom she describes as a  guiding light  in her  life, until his early death in October 1930, from a heart attack. 
The strain of trying to bring up two young  daughters on  her own took its toll upon her  health. She developed asthma, nervous exhaustion, and gall-bladder disease. Following  the death of her sister in 1935, she traveled to Tokyo to take the news to her parents, who had  retired there. It  was whilst she was there that she entered the Maeda  Medical Hospital in Akasaka, where she was diagnosed  with a  tumor, gallstones and appendicitis. Her poor respiratory condition, of  course, made the  possibility of  an operation very dangerous. However, she rested there for several  weeks,  and was eventually scheduled for surgery. 

The night before  her operation she heard a voice telling her that it would not  be necessary.  She again heard the same voice,  whilst lying  on the operating table, being prepared for the anesthetic. On reporting this to the surgeon,  and enquiring  if there  were any other treatment that she could take, he told her that his sister had attended Dr Hayashi's clinic, and had herself been trained there. The very next day she took Mrs. Takata to  the clinic, where she remained for four months, receiving regular treatments  from the teams of  healers working  there. Mrs. Takata asked to be trained in Reiki also, but was at first refused, because she was considered a foreigner,  and it  was not in Dr Hayashi's plans for the practice of Reiki to  leave Japan. But  Mrs. Takata  persisted, and  finally, with the intervention of the surgeon who had originally  told her  of Reiki,  in  Spring  1936  she  received  her  first  Reiki  I attunement. She went on to take her Reiki  II, remaining at the clinic and becoming part of  the team  of healers  there, returning at last to her home in Hawaii in 1937.

In 1938  Dr Hayashi followed her to Hawaii, where he  lectured with  her, assisted in the  setting up  of her  clinic, and  gave her  a Reiki III initiation.  On February 22, 1938 her announced her as a Master,  and in 1941 made her his successor. 
 Despite his insistence that she did not give any training away without charge, she passed free attunements to her friends and relatives. But  she found  that instead of using this knowledge to heal others, they continued to bring all their patients to her, not having any faith in their own abilities. It was at about this time that her sisters  asked her for free attunements also, and were most  upset when she refused. She suggested  that if  they could  not afford  the fees, they could  perhaps pay  in installments, and this  was agreed upon as  a satisfactory  compromise. Her sister  was later reported by Mrs. Takata  to have said that it was the cheapest investment that she made, better than buying a car!
Mrs. Takata later noted  that of  all the  twenty four  people that she gave free attunements to, not one of  them had  went on to attain good health themselves, or  were successful  in business. Contrary to popular  thought, Mrs. Takata was  not rigid in her thinking, but grew and expanded  upon her own personal experiences. However, she did acknowledge that  an exchange of energy in some form was necessary for the healing to be effective. 

It seems that we value most  that which  we have made an effort to obtain. 

Mrs. Takata eventually traveled to the United States, and then on to Canada, spreading  the knowledge  of Reiki as she went. Where she found people who were seriously ill, she trained a member of their family to give them healing. She taught Reiki in many different  ways, varying  the  hand positions and even the symbols that she taught, responding always to the needs of  her students. During the last ten years of her life she trained twenty-two Reiki Masters,  both men and women, until her eventual death on December 11, 1980.
Since then Reiki has  spread all  around the  world, to  all continents,  with an estimated 5,000 Masters  (1,000 of  whom are said to be in Australia) and some 500,000 practitioners.

 TWO PRECEPTS

1.  THE PERSON MUST ASK

    We must ask to be healed, and in asking, open ourselves up at the throat level. We vocalize and hear ourselves say  "I want to change where I am. I want to alter my state  of existence." In asking, the person is putting forth  a conscious decision to become involved. The request may also be made on a soul level.  It is from the soul level that  the person  asks  for  healing. It is essential to listen and render service to a request of the soul.

2.  THERE MUST BE AN EXCHANGE OF ENERGY FOR THE SERVICES

The healing energy belongs to the Universe and to God. However,  there  needs  to be  a creative  exchange from  the recipient to the  person whose  time and  services are  being rendered for the healing. Giving something for nothing causes  an imbalance  by the  unpaid obligation.  An  energy exchange  maintains the balance. Energy exchange can  be anything from the stored concept of energy that we call money to any exchange of services between the healee and the  healing practitioner offering services  on a professional level do  establish a  fee. This fee sets a  value on  the service, which is considered a concrete reality in the thinking of humankind. Wellness, likewise, has a value and ultimately reflects the feeling of worthiness and self-love of the person seeking to change their state of health.

 REIKI IS LOVE

I am Mrs. Takata. My sisters and brothers, it is my personal honor to further welcome you to the family of Reiki. I would like to inform you that myself and Sai Baba, are the beings, the energies, that have attuned you during this attunement session.

Many of you wonder who I am. I am Takata; I am the energy of that lady that is responsible for bringing forward the tradition that our wonderful teacher and friend, Dr Usui, gave us. Some of you would wonder why I would be present at what could be called an unconventional Reiki training course. I am present, brothers and sisters, because I am very excited to see things move forward.

I have been portrayed as that stern lady who insisted that everything was done in a methodical and planned way. It is true, I trained some of my early Reiki Masters this way, but a number of the later Masters that I trained were taught very differently. They did not, of course, pass on the unconventional aspects of what I taught them, because in those days most people thought that it was necessary to stick to tradition, not only the tradition of Reiki, as taught and re-discovered by Dr Usui, but all traditions. Now is the time when myself, Quan Yin, Dr Usui, Germaine, Wotanna, Djwhal Khul, and others of the Ascended Lords and Ladies of Shamballa, are working collectively to move these philosophies forward, so that they truly may take their place in this Golden Age of Light that is rapidly approaching on this Earth of yours. Things are changing very quickly, and many, many, many healing facilitators are required in a very short time. Things are speeding up and you must speed up with them.

Speed up the awakening and enlightening of your brothers and sisters of all creeds, all colors, all countries. I leave you with my love. I leave you with my blessings, and I congratulate you all in taking this greatest step forward. Bless You. I am Usui; welcome. Welcome all of you to the next level of Reiki, to the next level of energy. You will find now that your capacity to facilitate has been accelerated. You will remember that this morning there were questions as to whether I really did exist. I exist, because I am channeling through this one. I existed in the third dimension; I existed as a being of Light, a being of Love, that came to teach love. Reiki is Love. I came not to teach methods of control, methods of teaching that forced one to adhere to a rigid form. I came to teach about love. I came to teach about compassion. It was not I that formed a system of control; it was ones that came after me. I do not judge them, for at the time they thought that they were doing things for the best. That was then, and the times are now very different. So because the times are different, Germain, myself and others, are incarnating the accelerated system, not only through this one, but through many others. And as that great, dear soul, Mrs. Takata, told you yesterday, now is the time that many, many healing facilitators are required upon this beautiful planet of yours. Do you all understand the meaning of that term?

Go out, speak about what you know. Use what you know for the furtherance of the energy of love; for the furtherance of the energy of light. And when ones that have not heard of Reiki ask you; "What is this Reiki?" the only thing you need to reply is; "Reiki is Love." There is no need to tell them, those that have not been attuned, and had any information passed on to them, there is no need to go into; "This is a system of symbolism. We use these symbols, you do this, you do that." There is no need for them to know this. It is not secrecy, but I would ask you not to confuse them; not to send them into rigid patterns of thinking.

 Reiki is love; love is wholeness; wholeness is balance; balance is well-being, freedom from dis-ease. Remember these words. You can sum up Reiki with them. Colleagues, for that is what you are, you are not students, you are not trainees, you are not below me, you are not below this one that I am channeling through; realize that you are colleagues, that you are all Masters in your own right. If you weren't Masters in your own right, why would you be here? There would be no reason for you to be here. Walk forward in love, walk forward in light, speak of that light, and spread that light through your hearts, spread that light through your hands, spread that light through your feet, and spread that light through your eyes. I bless you all, and again I say to you, welcome home to the Family. Bless you.

It is I, Takata. I am here again to briefly address you on the subject of Reiki.

I would like you all to know that most beings upon this planet had Reiki before.

Many ones understand the meaning of this word, the meaning of this energy.

Again, I will compound what the dear Doctor has just told you. You have now returned home. You have now returned home to love, compassion and light. Remember this short sentence, because contained within it is all you need to know. Bless You. You may now start to return yourselves to your normal consciousness.

Of course, you should by now know that you will never be "normal" again! I leave you.

 The above channeling was received through John Armitage during a Shamballa Reiki I & II workshop held at Bangor on 13/14 July1996.

 THE FIVE PRINCIPLES OF REIKI

1. JUST FOR TODAY I WILL TRUST.

All things happen in accordance with divine will. I will listen to my I Am Presence, my Higher Self, and allow my life and work to unfold within God's plan. To worry is to be unsure of God's part in our lives. If we listen to our inner voice, we will grow. Let's acknowledge our place in the plan on earth and go forward in love and compassion.

2. JUST FOR TODAY I SHALL WORK HONESTLY

I love myself enough to know that my actions effect others. Doing one's work honestly means being truthful to one's self. If we create harmony in ourselves, we help to create harmony in the world. If we co-create love and balance, we will have it in our own lives. See the confrontations in life as lessons from God, giving us the chance to learn. To be spiritual is to be conscious of the needs of the self and the needs of others. Mastery comes from honest effort in our daily lives.

3. JUST FOR TODAY I SHALL ACCEPT MY BLESSINGS

This means that I will look at my life and see what I really have. The key to having what you really need is visualization. Most don't realize that   what you think is what you get!   Learn to think in a constructive manner and bring into your life the energy you really need. If you think light, all will be bright. If you think dark thoughts, all will become dark. Allow your Higher Selves to tell you what you need. We are the light of God on the planet, allow it to manifest through you in truth, beauty, harmony, love and abundance.

4. JUST FOR TODAY I WILL BE AT PEACE

To be angry is to be controlled. It is an unwillingness to see what you don't like about yourself. Anger is limiting and brings physical and emotional afflictions. Energy is life and if you are angry this anger gets into food, houses, etc and all living forms within our universe. It must be transmuted into love and balance. Smile and receive a smile. Love will radiate love in return. Think Pink! This is the color of love.

5. JUST FOR TODAY I WILL RESPECT ALL LIFE

We have been given everything we need to live in harmony and respect. Until we respect and love ourselves, we cannot respect and love others and be in harmony with the divine plan. Our world is full of technology that allows us communication, but do we truly communicate with others, in love and respect? We are so busy with our individual lives that we don't take time to even "smell the flowers". Most people don't respect life. If they did they would not indulge in the destruction of species and the killing of their brothers and sisters. We as healers are instruments of the divine plan, and must show others the way forward in love and compassion. The Earth is a living, loving, being. We must understand this and help her to again become whole. Humankind have abused their Mother, the Earth, and we must facilitate Her healing. Through this we will all become whole.
