Explanation of Instruction for the Public - By Founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho, Mikao Usui
It is an old custom to teach a method to only my descendants, for keeping a wealth within a family. Especially, the modern societies we live in wish to share happiness of coexistence and co-prosperity. So I don't allow my family to keep the method to ourselves.
My Usui Reiki Ryoho is an original, there is nothing like this in the world. So I would like to release this method to the public for everyone's benefit and hope for everyone's happiness. My Reiki Ryoho is an original method based on intuitive power in the universe.
What is Usui Reiki Ryoho?
Graciously I have received Meiji Emperor's last injunctions. For achieving my teachings, training and improving physically and spiritually and walking in a right path as a human being, first we have to heal our spirit. Secondly we have to keep our body healthy. If our spirit is healthy and conformed to the truth, body will get healthy naturally. Usui Reiki Ryoho's missions are to lead peaceful and happy life and improve happiness of others and ourselves.
Is there any similarity to hypnotism, Kiai method, religious method or any other methods?
No, there is no similarity to any of those methods. This method is to help body and spirit with intuitive power, which I've received after long and hard training.
Do I have to believe in Usui Reiki Ryoho to get better result?
No. It's not like a psychological method of treatment or hypnosis or other kind of mental method. There is no need to have a consent or admiration. It doesn't matter if you doubt, reject or deny it.
How does Usui Reiki Ryoho work?
I've never been given this method by anybody nor studied to get psychic power to heal. I accidentally realized that I have received healing power when I felt the air in mysterious way during fasting. So I have a hard time explaining exactly even I am the founder. Scholars and men of intelligence have been studying this phenomenon but modern science can't solve it. But I believe that day will come naturally.
Does Usui Reiki Ryoho use any medicine and are there any side effects?
Never uses medical equipment. Staring at affected area, breathing onto it, stroking with hands, laying on of hands and patting lightly with hands are the way of treatment.
Do I need to have knowledge of medicine?
My method is beyond a modern science so you do not need knowledge of medicine.
People would think that this kind of healing power is gifted to the selected people, not by training.
No, that isn't true. Every existence has healing power. Plants, trees, animals, fish and insects, but especially a human as the lord of creation has remarkable power. Usui Reiki Ryoho is materialized the healing power that human has.
Then, can anybody receive Denju of Usui Reiki Ryoho?
Of course, a man, woman, young or old, people with knowledge or without knowledge, anybody who has a common sense can receive the power accurately in a short time.
