About the Usui Shiki Ryoho System of Reiki Healing
Reiki is a Japanese word translated as “Universal Life Energy” by Hawayo Takata.
She brought the possibility of a relationship with this energy to us through Usui Shiki Ryoho, a healing system founded by Mikao Usui in the early part of the 1900’s.
Usui Shiki Ryoho can be translated as “the Usui System of Natural Healing.”
Until the mid-1990’s, this was the most common translation and was used by nearly all of the various forms of hands-on healing practice that came from Hawayo Takata’s teaching. At this time, Phyllis Lei Furumoto decided to return to the Japanese title of the practice to identify the form of practice and the system that she teaches: Usui Shiki Ryoho.
How Reiki Healing Energy Works
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our “life force” is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well being.Reiki Healing Energy provides means to balance the human energy fields called auras and energy centers called chakras to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function.
The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. He/She plays an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the person to manifest harmony and balance in their own life.
Here is what one client had to say…
My name is Courtney Wright, I have done my level one and level two reiki with Karen.
When I started my level one I had recently been diagnosed with psychotic depression; I was scared of everything and not in control of my own thoughts.
When I walked into the space Karen had created for us I felt calm. The table time I had with the group allowed me to let go of many of the emotions I was holding onto. It was so freeing. I was taught self reiki and I have used it every day since.
I went back the next year to complete my level two with Karen and fine tuned my skills.
With being able to use reiki to calm, heal and release emotions I have come off all medications and feel like I have control of my mind again. I have been over a year of medication and symptom free.
I am about to start my own practice now in which Karen has been more then helpful in giving me advice.
I would recommend Karen as an instructor and friend to anyone who is interested in reiki and a positive change in their life.
