5.0 out of 5 stars The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui, January 22, 2000
This review is from: Reiki Fire: New Information about the Origins of the Reiki Power: A Complete Manual (Shangri-La) (Paperback)
Understanding and development of unity in Reiki is available now! After years of research and work, F. Arjava Petter and his wife Chetna (Kobayashi) have completed the translation of the Original Handbook written by Dr. Usui used in training students.
There have been so many myths and legends born from this source that is it a real treasure to find actual documentation, a validity in the word form. What a wonderful Makana Kalikimaka or "Christmas gift".
This for me was very much a confirmation of "Reiki IS for everyone". The Reiki a technique developed by Usui that echoes many sources; confirming that there is one source. We ARE all one in Mind and Spirit. The body individual is the learning and experiencing tool, seeking its own expression and so celebrates the different forms/types of Reiki. An Obvious example of this is a technique I find I use. In Arjava's book is identified as "The Byosen Technique". This technique is identified in Native American Healing as well as Pranic Healing. Many other cultures use a similiar type of sensitivity to determine problem areas in order to better work with situations. I was delighted to see it identified and recognized in Japanese Reiki.
The things I had questioned in my mind and felt a need to know were included. There are techniques that relate to specific problems such as Obesity and Gallstones and many others. Sometimes herbs are mentioned as well as diet and exercize. Reiki feels more complete with this kind of new information.
Quoted from the book "Intuitive Reiki by Dr. Usui is different: It asks that we free ourselves of the rules. Rules are meant to give us support." ..."Many of you have cerainly worked in an intuitive manner for a long time. I am happy for you--and with you--That we now have the "Official" permission from Dr. Usui to do this!"
Teaching Reiki to Nurses and the Medical community, I was delighted to see the statement that Reiki was to assist or complement and not replace medical attention from the traditional sources. Also references to the vertebrae, specific organs and glands make this book more in tune with the teaching needs of the medical community. The Original Reiki Handbook with it's clear photographs and explanations are a perfect complement to my Reiki Classes at San Antonio Community College, Continuing Nursing Education and I will be integrating the new information as well as offering the book to new students.
