Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books on Reiki I have read. Some past reviewers have given negative reviews for reasons that are not true. Recent research has dispelled the traditional history Takata spread about Usui being a Christian and other myths. Frank Arjava Petter was one of the forerunners in seeking the true historical background behind Reiki. This book gives an authentic portrayal of Reiki, its history, and its healing capabilities. Useful techniques are given beyond the average Reiki book. While Reiki is not Qigong per say, it resembles it in many ways and indeed could be termed a "lazy man's Qigong" as the author states. This is one of the most real authors I have ever read on Reiki who says it like it is. He shows himself to be as human as the rest of us and ever striving in spiritual aspiration. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Reiki and as a perfect supplement for those starting with this wonderful healing modality. Coming from a skeptic, Reiki does work and this book will add much richness to your Reiki experience. Wish I could give it more than five stars!

`Reiki Fire' is a classic amongst Reiki books. Most people read it early on in their Reiki journey, and I was no exception...Knowing little about the subject, I found it engrossing, inspiring and pleasantly down to earth. Frank Arjava Petter writes with an affable enthusiasm for his subject, drawing on his own life experiences to demonstrate the power that Reiki can have in your life, if you let go and allow it to work.
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.

Frank Arjava Petter has, in a rather small book answered a lot of big questions. Many of us in the Reiki community have always doubted much of the 'myth' of this almost etherial Mikao Usui. Petter's passion, not only for Reiki, but also for truth, comes across very well. His grasp on the culture and mind-set of Japan and the Japanese, from his European viewpoint is a perspective we rarely get to understand in the West. There will be those that have trotted out the unsubstantiated and untrue myths for so long that they will undoubtedly feel threatened by the compelling revelations concerning Usui's Buddhist background and practice. The 'Truth will out' they say, and Frank's brave position in producing such a book is commendable. His easy style and experience of Reiki comes across in the form of friendly counsel,instead of dogmatic teaching. Frank Arjava Petter has done a tremendous service for those in Reiki, that seek the truth of their heritage and wish to teach from a position of integrity. He is a valid and credible messenger in times of change. I recommend this book to all serious Reiki practitioners.

Mushi mushi? There was a game that I used to play as a child. It was called 'telephone' (My mother said they called it 'gossip' when she was young). We would all sit in a circle and one person would whisper a message in the next person's ear , they would then whisper in the next person's ear the message they heard, and so on and so forth all around the circle until the last person was told. The last person told would then tell the group what the message was. What fun we had listening to the ending message and comparing it to what the source message was. Frank Arjava Petter has stood up with his book, Reiki Fire, to tell us what the real story of Reiki is.
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.
