Reiki at Aromatica Dreams

History of Reiki

The founder of Reiki was a Dr Mikao Usui who was born in Japan in the mid-nineteenth century. As he was growing up, he heard stories about the Buddha. He also noted that the Buddha was said to be able to heal physical illness and that many of the Buddha's disciples acquired healing abilities by following his teachings.

Dr Usui looked at the people around him and saw that there were many who were unable to lead happy productive lives because they were sick so often or had physical disabilities. Feeling compassion for them, he wondered if it would be possible to acquire the ability to heal physical illness in the same way Buddha had done. After pondering the question for some time, he came to the conclusion that if this kind of healing was possible in the past, then it must still be relevant now. With this thought in mind, he set out on a quest, determined to learn the secret of healing so that he could help others.

He began talking to Buddhist teachers and priests, asking if they knew how to heal the sick. Apparently, the ability to heal the body was either held as a secret Buddhist technique by a few spiritual groups or had been lost through disuse. Consequently Dr Usui was unable to find anyone that could heal the sick so he carried on travelling throughout Japan, studying at Buddhist temples and asking questions about healing. During his travels, he became friends with the abbot of a Zen monastery and was invited to stay and study. The abbot also had an interest in physical healing and encouraged Usui in his quest. Wanting to read the sacred books in their original language, Dr Usui learned Chinese and eventually Sanskrit. It was in the Indian sutras, that he discovered a formula for contacting a higher power that could bestow healing. He talked to the Abbot about this. It was then decided that all he could do now was to follow the practices in the formula. So he travelled to the holy mountain of Kori-yama where he fasted, meditated, and followed the directions of the formula for 21 days.

On the mountain, he set out 21 stones in front of him and each day he threw away a stone. On the 21st day, after tossing away the last stone and still not having received the healing power, he stood up. It was night at the darkest point, just before dawn. As he looked out toward the horizon wondering what to do next, he saw a point of light coming toward him. As he looked at the light, he realized that the light had consciousness and that it was communicating with him. He realized the light, had the healing power he was looking for and if he was to receive what the light had to offer, he must allow the light to strike him. However, he was told that the light was so powerful that if it did strike him, it might kill him. He decided the ability to heal the sick would be of such great value that it would be worth risking death to receive it.

The beam struck him in the forehead, knocking him unconscious. Rising out of his physical body, he was shown beautiful bubbles of light filled with colours. In the bubbles were symbols as he contemplated each symbol, he received an attunement for that symbol and knowledge on its use. In this way, he was initiated into the use of the reiki healing power. 

Reiki Treatment

Reiki involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to client to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself.

It is a holistic, natural, hands on energy healing system that touches the recipient on all levels: body, mind and spirit. The client remains fully clothed during the treatment. The actual treatment consists of hand placing techniques on specific parts of the body and will leave the client feeling calm and peaceful.

Reiki is a form of healing and is becoming increasingly popular.

What makes reiki unique is that it incorporates elements of many other alternative healing practices such as crystals and chakra balancing.

Recipients may attain more internal clarity and often find the courage to make changes needed to improve their life.
