So, several years down the line, I find myself buying and reading it again (my own copy having disappeared on a very longterm, probably permanent, loan). I'm delighted to say that it still inspires me. The `fire' that Petter predicted has certainly spread throughout the world, and along with it a plethora of genres of Reiki and associated books.
What I really like about `Reiki Fire' is the lack of self absorbed pseudo-spirituality which pervades so many New Age and alternative books. Reiki is actually very straightforward - certainly it can be dressed up in all sorts of ways - but Arjava describes it in its pure form. His research into its history is legendary. Before `Reiki Fire' all sorts of outlandish folklore was rife (and accepted) as to how Reiki was re-discovered. Petter's very thorough research in Japan blew many of these myths out of the water, much to the chagrin of some steadfast upholders of the `old' stories. Well you can't please all the people...
So whether you're just setting out on your own Reiki adventure, or, like me, you've been treading the path for a while, I'd thoroughly recommend `Reiki Fire' as an essential text. Trust me though - put your name in it.
There are many books out now about Reiki. Mr. Petter even states in his book that writing a book on Reiki "is like a cosmic joke, like chasing your own shadow." He reminds us of the nature of Reiki, that it is Alive. As practitioners, we know this to be true every time we feel the life energy of the universe flow through us. Yet all of us are guilty of trying to "pigeon-hole' or define Reiki as this or that. I was reminded when reading Reiki Fire, that when we have something that is alive, it is constantly changing with each experience and situation.
So back to the point where Mr. Petter was standing up...When going through our first initiation in the healing technique called Reiki, we are told about our lineage. This lineage included the story of how Reiki was rediscovered by Dr. Usui and passed to Hawayo Takata thus making its way to the West. As a student of mythology, my love of a good story may only be outweighed by my love of knowing the origins of the story. I was intrigued by the fact that many of the stories about Dr. Usui were taking on a life of their own.Read more ›
