Komyo ReikiDo Lineage



Reiki lineage (energy lineage) is a very important part of the system of Reiki.
Komyo ReikiDo has a very short, direct lineage and while lineage is important – it is not everything.

A lineage is the line of teaching that your teacher has been trained in, similar to a family tree. A teacher’s lineage reflects the information passed from teacher to student. As a result, different lineages will share a variety of different techniques, philosophies and understandings of the system of Reiki Ryoho, as well as have different focuses.
Although it is important when undertaking Reiki training that your teacher is able to provide you with an unbroken lineage tracing back to the founder, Mikao Usui, in reality one lineage is not better or more authentic than the next.
One lineage is neither ‘better’ nor ‘worse’ than the other. Neither is ‘stronger’ nor ‘weaker.’ Neither is ‘more advanced’ nor ‘less advanced.’
By lineage a Reiki practitioner is not noble. By lineage a Reiki practitioner is not superior. By lineage a Reiki practitioner is not ignoble. By lineage a Reiki practitioner is not inferior.
By deed a Reiki practitioner is noble. By deed a Reiki practitioner is superior. By deed a Reiki practitioner is ignoble. By deed a Reiki practitioner is inferior.
Your Reiki lineage does not make a good practitioner or a Teacher. “Clothes do not make the man,” as the saying goes.
Deeds are the criteria of a good Reiki practitioner and a good Teacher. Your mental, verbal, and physical deeds, (i.e., what you think, what you speak, and what you do), are of the greatest importance.


Usui Mikao Sensei (Founder Usui REIKI RYOHO) 


Mikao Usui Sensei, the founder of Reiki Ryoho (healing art or method), attained spiritual enlightenment in 1922 while he was fasting and meditating on Mt. Kurama in Kyoto, the ancient capital city of Japan. At the same time he attained this enlightenment, he realized that he also received a miraculous healing ability. Usui Sensei thought that this wonderful gift of healing ability should be shared with everyone and not just kept to himself and/or his family. As a result, he opened up «Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai» at Aoyama, Tokyo in April of 1922 and began teaching.
(In the Western countries, it’s been incorrectly said that Reiki healing method was rediscovered by Usui Sensei after researches in the Buddhist scriptures. Reiki Ryoho is a wholly Japanese method and is an inspired healing art of Usui Sensei, not the outcome of his researches, or discovery, or re-discovery.)
 In 1925 Usui Sensei moved to Nakano, a suburb of Tokyo, so as to expand his healing activities. Due to his nation-wide fame, he was very often invited to teach his Reiki Ryoho in local districts or other areas of Japan.
On March 9th, 1926, while traveling at Fukuyama in Hiroshima Prefecture Sensei Usui unexpectedly became ill and passed away on the road.
Usui Sensei’s gravesite and his memorial stone are located in Tokyo at Saihoji Temple of Jōdo-shū (浄土宗) or Pure Land sect of Japanese Buddhism.
(In the West, Usui Sensei is said to be a Christian minister holding his PhD at the University of Chicago and president of Christian based Doshisha University in Kyoto. There is no evidence to support this. He was a lay Buddhist from beginning to end.)



Hayashi Chujiro Sensei (15.09.1879-11.05.1940)
Chujiro Hayashi Sensei a captain of the then Imperial Navy of Japan, enrolled in the 30th class of the Naval Academy in December 1899, and graduated in December, 1902. He was initiated into Shinpiden (Teacher’s Degree) by Usui Sensei in 1925 after his retirement from the Navy and opened his Reiki clinic at Higashi-shinano-cho, Tokyo.
He was one of the directors of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. His wife, Mrs. Hayashi Chie, was also a member of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. In 1931 he left the Gakkai and set up “Hayashi Reiki Kenkyu Kai”.

He made 13 Shihans (Teachers), and two of them were women, namely his wife, Mrs. Hayashi Chie, and Mrs. Hawayo Takata. In 1937 Hayashi Sensei traveled to Hawaii with his daughter. He stayed for several months, hosted by Mrs. Takata (his student). Before he left Hawaii in February of 1938, he awarded Mrs. Takata a Shihan (teacher’s) certificate.
In 1940, May 11th, he passed away (by committing suicide. The reason remains a mystery.)
(Hayashi Sensei was not enrolled in the Naval Academy of Medicine. There are claims that Hayashi Sensei was a medical doctor, but this cannot be confirmed as there are no records to verify this fact.
In conclusive documentation is provided Hayashi Sensei to held a medical license, we will gladly share this information.)



Yamaguchi Chiyoko Sensei

Chiyoko Yamaguchi Sensei was initiated into Reiki Ryoho by Hayashi Sensei in 1938 at the age of 17. She did not become a Shihan but she was taught how to give Reiju by her uncle, another of Hayashi Sensei’s students. She did not open a public Reiki practice, practicing privately with family and friends. After numerous requests, she began teaching Reiki Ryoho to others in 1997. She has no set curriculum and did not provide written materials or certificates. She simply taught as she went along.



Inamoto Hyakuten Sensei (Founder of Komyo ReikiDo) 
(Born in 19.08.1940)

Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei, Japanese Buddhist monk of the Pure Land (Jodo-shu) school and international teacher, was a student of Yamaguchi Chiyoko.
After much research into the original teachings of Usui Sensei, Hyakuten Inamoto founded Komyo ReikiDo™ (formerly Komyo Reiki Kai) in 1998 and began holding classes. Komyo ReikiDo follows the teachings of Usui Sensei and focuses on healing not only the body, but most importantly, the mind (soul or spirit). Usui Sensei believed that with spiritual improvement, the body would naturally be better capable of healing itself. Hyakuten Sensei shares this belief.
Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei has been an invaluable invaluable speaker and translator for many authors. He travels extensively teaching Reiki Ryoho worldwide, internationally known as an authority (expert) on traditional Japanese Reiki. He lives near Mt. Kurama in the ancient city of Kyoto and gratefully guides a great amount of Reiki practitioners from all the world to Reiki’s Birthplace.
Hyakuten Sensei is fluent in English, and is noted for his kind, gentle manner and joyous sense of humor.
Hyakuten Sensei currenty travels the globe teaching Komyo ReikiDo seminars to a wide range of international students, in addition to teaching classes and giving sessions at his clinic in Kyoto, Japan.

Takata Hawayo Sensei (24.12.1900-11.12.1980) havayo

One of Hayashi Chujuro Sensei’s student was Mrs. Hawayo Takata.
Takata Sensei, a Japanese American was born in Hawaii. She was diagnosed with a serious gall bladder trouble. In 1935 Takata made a trip to Japan and was treated with Reiki by Hayashi Sensei. She recovered completely in four months. She then worked for Hayashi Sensei as a Reiki student for about one year before returning to Hawaii.
Hayashi Sensei visited Takata Sensei in Hawaii from October 1837 till February ‎1938 1938 and initiated her into Shinpiden ( Shihan or Teacher) level in 1938.

Takata Sensei set up her Reiki clinic in Hawaii and in her later life, she made 22 Reiki Teachers ( or Reiki Masters’ as they are known in the West).
Thanks to their devotion, Reiki Ryoho (Reiki hands-on healing Art) has become widespread in the West.

Note: While Takata Sensei in not part of Komyo Lineage, her contribution to Reiki Ryoho practice as whole deserves an honorable mention. In truth, it is because of Takata Sensei’s great dedication and continual hard work and effort that Reiki Ryoho is known to the world today.

We would like to express our hearty gratitude, appreciation —infinite thankfulness to Takata Sensei and her granddaughter -Grand Master Phyllis Lei Furumoto. Thank you so much for your dedication and everything you have done to spread Reiki Ryoho around the world!

In our daily life all of us encounter situations when someone shows discontent, anger, irritation or disrespect towards us. It can be both closest people, family members, our friends, partners, colleagues or complete strangers in a store, metro, in the street and especially during rush hours.

Many people believe that discourtesy or anger must be dealt with in the same way, that is to respond in the same language with the opponent, otherwise (kindly) they will not understand. Unfortunately, this pattern of behavior is maintained in many families, at work, in society (aggression to aggression, quid pro quo). And if a person responds politely, with loving kindness, this will be perceived as the person’s weakness, and won’t be treated with respect.
Most of the time people react habitually (subconsciously), or justify themselves attributing it to genetics, character, psychological type, zodiac sign, etc. In fact, it is much more difficult to get out of the comfort zone, change, develop and cultivate new qualities in oneself, learn to react/respond to life and any conflict (trouble / distressing) situation more consciously, go beyond the boundaries of one’s usual way of thinking, one’s habitual reactions and emotions (patterns of behavior), maintain the state of inner harmony and peace, become attentive and mindful, begin to look at any current event and situation with spiritual eyes — with the eyes of universal wisdom, light and unconditional love — that is, from the state of Reiki.
The more often during the day we practice the Reiki state (with people, animals, plants, food, drinks), the more stable, placid and clear our mind (psyche) will be, and the more efficiently we will be able to cope with any difficulties / problems, complex tasks, stressful situations. The less we will feed the collective field with negativity (condemnation, blame, criticism, destructive emotions, unconscious actions) and false beliefs, the more we will create prosperity/well-being for ourselves and all living beings. The purer and wider our consciousness will be and the more open our heart will be, which will shine with all possible edges, reflecting the entire depth of universal wisdom and the light of its eternal soul, dispelling any illusions, transforming any conflicts and seeding the collective field with unconditional love. And then every tough life situation or task will become a blessing – another opportunity for us to realize our spiritual presence here and now, to shine even more (stronger and further).
Therefore, when someone is being angry at you, screaming, cursing, making ignorant speech, insulting or exhibiting any other rude (negative in your opinion) behavior, first of all, be conscious — spiritually present, do not identify yourself with what is said, do not let the other person’s reality (state/condition) become yours, keep neutrality, serenity, and then you can understand more clearly the essence of what is happening: perhaps this person has a bad mood or doesn’t feel well, perhaps they are not satisfied with their life, may have problems within family, at work, or maybe they are not happy with the financial situation or their self-realization; they might be going through some kind of crisis, serious illness, it may be anything …

Find any possible way to demonstrate and share with them the presence of loving kindness and compassion, the limitless light of your universal soul. Indeed, many people unconsciously continue to live in darkness (in negativity), considering this the norm of life though in any situation we can serve as an example, gently (without condemning, blame) touch that person with the light of Reiki in response in order to remind and awake their own light and transform negative energy into the vibrations of universal love. Perhaps, with their ignorant behavior, these people show how much their life is shrouded in darkness of ignorance (lack of knowledge), and thus they ask to light them up, remind them of another or the true reality of existence, help dissolve their illusions and that darkness.
No one, except (for) ourselves, can hurt or make us someone else according to someone else’s reality. When we realize our true nature, the essence of existence, no one and nothing can limit or change our true nature. No one and nothing can make a negative impact on us. On the contrary, being spiritually present, we can influence everything around us with our vibrations, the field of our light and love; we can transform any darkness, cruelty, aggression, pain, suffering and callousness of humanity.

Act with full involvement, attention/mindfulness and awareness, in alignment with your true nature, act from a state of peace and harmony, loving kindness and unconditional love, wisdom and generosity of the Universe (that is, Reiki), so that at every moment of this beautiful life you can make a choice to ILLUMINATE WITH THE ETERNAL AND INFINITE LIGHT OF YOUR UNIVERSAL SOUL AND HEART ALL LIVING BEINGS and OUR ENTIRE PLANET EARTH.

Stomach Reiki healing during driving.

One afternoon we were driving home in our car after a beautiful hike in Oregon, USA. My husband said that he was not feeling well– that he was experiencing a very sharp pain in his stomach. There was no place to pull the car over at that moment on the busy freeway. So I proposed to do a Reiki healing as he was driving. I asked my mother, who was sitting behind him, to also do a distant healing at the same time. We asked Reiki energy to heal my husband the highest way is possible here and now. The road was smooth but fast, it was difficult to position my arms. But I kept following my intuition. Me and my mother were continuously channelling Reiki energy including our eyes. After 7 minutes, he remarked that he felt much better!The pain was gone and he was happy to drive us home for another one hour.

Passenger Reiki healing during my long distance flight

During my long distance flight from Amsterdam to Portland June, 2016, I heard an announcement asking if there were any doctors on the airplane. I felt that perhaps I might help with a Reiki healing. So I approached one of stewards and politely offered my help. She replied that there was already a medical doctor helping the passenger and invited me to return to my seat. But I felt a persistent intuition that perhaps the medical doctor might not be able to help. It was such a strong message in my mind that after 10 minutes, I approached another stewardess to explain to her about the Komyo ReikiDo Method. She became very interested but said first to wait on what doctor will say, and then if doctor could not help, they would call me.
