Daily Reiki Practice


REIKI RYOHO  is two fold practice: therapeutical practice and spiritual practice.


Every morning and every evening we do Gassho meditation and chanting Reiki Principles as it was taught by The Founder of Reiki Ryoho – Mikao Usui Sensei.


Usui Sensei taught his students the first pillar of Reiki – the Gassho meditation.


Gassho 合掌 ( がっしょう) 合 “unite” and 掌 “palm – means  two hands come together in front of the chest. It can be used for prayer or as a sign of greeting, gratitude, reverence, or apology. When performed with a bow, it is called gassho rei.


Gassho meditation is the art of creating a quiet mind and listening to a sound of silence. Where prayer is the act of talking with the Divine, meditation is the act of listening and truly hearing what Creator- God has to share with us. In the Light of the Creator …..We see only Love”. Laurelle Shanti Giara


Chanting Reiki Principles every morning and every evening in Japanese is very important, it helps to reprogramming the mind, to be aware of living with this principles during the day, in our daily routine,  till it will be our natural state of living.


Our daily life – is our DOJO — a place for spiritual training / practice.




Komyo ReikiDo is a “keep-it-simple” Reiki system and practice. It is based on Japanese aesthetics “Less is more.” Simplicity is a key to the Truth.


The practice motto is: “Place your hands”, “Surrender”, and “Smile”…
(There is no room for any techniques and/or other things. Reiki is all we need).


“Hands on, Reiki on”. Hawayo Takata.


Reiki practice is — to let Reiki guide you, not try to guide Reiki, if you let your ego be involved and try to tell Reiki what to do, it means that you are doing something else than the practice of Reiki. Reiki works best when you put your ego aside, ego and self- clinging are an obstruction in the channel for Reiki healing energy to travel through.


12 standard self healing hand positions that cover and treat all the major organs in the body

1.eyes, 2.temple/edges of the head, 3.back of the head/front and back of the head.

1.trough, 2.chest, 3.solar plexus, 4.tanden (3 fingers below navel), 5.groin.

1.neck/shoulders, 2.shoulder blades, 3.kidney, 4. sacrum(above tail bone)


It is recommended that the hands are to be laid on each position for 3 – 5 minutes. These hand positions are basically intended for maintaining good health, and they are not permanent. A practitioner can have his/her own variation of the hand positions. Ideally the hands are to be intuitively placed. While doing Reiki, your hands may feel tingly, heated, pain and the like on a certain area. In such a case, (Byosen and Hibiki) focus on that area, without regard to time, until the sensation fades away.A beginning student is encouraged to do a self-healing practice based on the 12 hand-positions in order to experience the benefits of Reiki hands-on healing for 21 days – the period of time Usui Sensei disciplined himself by fasting and meditation on Kurama-yama. (The student might experience a healing crisis, a change for the better, physically and/or mentally/emotionally. It all depends on the individual.)


Note: Traditionally there are no set hand positions except some positions on the head.“21 days self-healing practice” is practical, helpful and beneficial, there is, however, not such a practice in traditional Japanese Reiki Ryoho.



How to place your hands:


1.Stretch your palms with fingers lightly put together.

2.Place your hands gently/lightly on the body. Be careful not to press on internal organs.

3.Hold your hands a few centimeters over cuts, burns and the area(s) you hesitate to put your hands on.

4.Basically two hands are used to do Reiki especially on twin organs such as lungs, kidney and ears.

5.Two hands are placed side by side or end to end depending on the area.

6.One hand, either right or left, is also used.


Basically the placement of hands begins with head. The hands on a head symbolize a healing of the mind of a recipient, for Reiki Ryoho is to first heal one’s mind, and then physical problem. “Usui Reiki Ryoho” is to improve the mind and body, not the body and mind.


-It is REIKI that does a fine job of healing, not YOU. (You as a Reiki practitioner do nothing

in the way of healing. But you are very essential for Reiki healing. Without you, Reiki

cannot work.)

-The energy comes from the universe, not from a Reiki practitioner, who serves as a

channel, not as an energy source.

-The farther from the ego, the purer the Reiki channel will be.


Traditional Reiki Hands Positions:

Forehead – between eye brow and crown (hair line)/Back of head – between crown and medulla oblongata.

Side of the head – on both temples

Medulla oblongata – the hollow of the nape of the neck/Top of the head – crown


After doing Reiki on the head, stomach area and kidney area, then, the hands are to be placed

on a trouble area.


The three ways to raise your Reiki energy level

1. Strive to cultivate and develop your spirituality. (Your spiritual growth determines
your Reiki energy level).
2. Receive Reiju (attunement) as often as possible.
(This is possible only to Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai members, or to the participants in a Reiki gathering where Reiju is offered.)
3. Do a daily Gassho meditation before bed and after rising for about 15 – 30 minutes.

病腺霊感法 Byosen Reikan Ho


When one places hands on a trouble part (disease or malfunction) one feels “something”

resulting from the trouble. This “something” is named “Byosen”.

A sensation of Byosen varies from kind (of disease) to kind and/or from stage (of disease) to

stage. The sensation may be tingly, tickling, painful, cold, moving, vibrating or the like.

The sensation (feeling) in the hands is called “Hibiki”. Where there is a disease there’s

Byosen. When one senses Byosen and gives Reiki healing there, a disease can be prevented

from developing or can be cured.

With enough practices anyone will be able to sense Byosen by means of Hibiki, the feeling in

one’s hands.

To heal one’s present is to heal his/her past and future.


“Traditionally Reiju 靈授 (initiation) is given in person; face to face.

“Touch” (the laying-on of hands) plays a pivotal role in Reiju process; a series of things we do in order to achieve a particular result. Touch in the form of the laying-on of hands is to impart the healing energy and information to Reiki Ryoho students. There is an unbroken succession of Teachers and Shihans, linked by the sacred touch of Reiju ritual, right back to the founder, Usui Sensei.

Reiju with “touch” — a visual symbol of an unseen transmission of not just of the healing energy but also of the information. Touch is a means of communication, an expression of unity, a bonding of people. It is a key to giving and receiving information and to help us bond.

Is “distant (online) Reiju “possible?

Theoretically it seems possible, for there exists a distant healing in Reiki Ryoho systems. And yet we need to understand that sending Reiki energy from a distance to someone and passing (imparting) Reiki energy and the information on to another is a different story, and that the distant Reiju does lack an important and pivotal factor, that is, “TOUCH.” The pivotal factor of a good old tradition: “in person Reiju” and “touch” must be maintained.”
Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei’s statement from July, 2020.

Komyo ReikiDo follows, preserves and keeps IN PERSON Reiju tradition alive with the highest respect to the Founder of the Japanese Healing Art, Usui Mikao Sensei.

Online Reiju is not allowed by Inamoto Sensei and is not recognized in the Komyo ReikiDo standards of teaching and practice.

During Reiki Ryoho (Japanese Healing Art) sessions, some practitioners can be more sensitive than others, some may even feel byosen before a treatment starts. Some have psychic abilities and are able to hear, see or sense things that most people do not. If we experience all that, naturally we are tempted to think that we are doing the healing. We start to analyse what we feel, hear and see. We try to work out where the energy should go and what would be the best way to cure a disease or malfunction of the recipient – all because we sincerely want to help.

Often the question arises: What should we do when we became so sensitive, when we see and hear things, or feel pain in our body or strong hibiki in our hands?

Inamoto Sensei says: “It is all very personal, some people are more gifted than others, more sensitive or skilful. Not everyone has to have such gifts or abilities. It can be very helpful to sense imbalances or health disorders in recipients, but basically, we don’t need anything like that. We are here just to place our hands.”

Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei reminds us that: “Japanese Healing Art of Reiki Ryoho is not about doing or thinking. It is about SURRENDER 100% to the Universe. As Reiki Ryoho practitioners, we DO NOTHING and THINK NOTHING in the way of healing. Reiki knows where to go and how to heal for the highest good of the person. We need to be the purer (cleaner) Reiki channel (conduit) possible. Less ego, more room for love — the healing energy of the Universe.”

Inamoto Sensei’s advice to us is: “Do not get attached to your sensations. Your ego and self-clinging are an obstruction in the channel for Reiki healing energy to travel through. Keep your practice simple: Place your hands, surrender and smile. Reiki Ryoho is the art of surrendering.”

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, people all over the world have been struggling with all kinds of health issues and mental, emotional and spiritual disorders. Naturally, as Reiki Ryoho (Japanese Healing Art) practitioners, we want to do all we can to serve and support others. We may now be offering distant Reiki healing more often, individually or as part of a group.
Questions often arise around permission and distant healing. Are we allowed to do distant healing without permission? Should we inform recipients? Is it appropriate to send Reiki to someone without asking them? Could it cause bad karma?
Actually, the answer might be quite simple. Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei always says: “Reiki is the energy of the Universe. It is Reiki that does the fine job of healing. Reiki always works for the highest good of recipient”.
Inamoto Sensei reminds us that we do nothing in the way of healing. As Reiki Ryoho practitioners, we put our ego aside and just surrender to Reiki.
When asked about his own practice, approach, Inamoto Sensei usually answers: “I do distant Reiki healing with permission and without permission. Sometimes we cannot get it, especially when the person is in a coma or emergency room or just simply uncontactable”.
His advice to us is: “Follow your heart — your kokoro. If you feel more comfortable with permission, please ask for permission. But if it’s not possible to get a permission, remember that Reiki always works for the highest good with permission or without permission. Trust Reiki”.
