The Founder Usui Reiki Ryoho



“First the mind must be healed

Second, the body must be made sound.

If the mind is healthy, conforming to a path of integrity,

then the body becomes sturdy of its own accord”.

Mikao Usui Sensei (1865-1926)

Sensei Usui, the founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho, was a Japanese Buddhist lay practitioner of Jōdo-shū (浄土宗) or Pure Land School (sect). Sensei Usui was commonly known by the name Mikao, with an extra name (pseudonym) Gyohan. He was born on August 15th of 1865 in Taniai-mura (village), Yamagata-gun (county), Gifu-ken (prefecture), Japan. Mikao Usui was descended from Chiba Tsunetane. His father’s name was Taneuji but he was commonly called Uzaemon. His mother was from the Kawai family. He had 2 brothers: Sanya and Kunji, and one elder sister called Tsuru.
From his youth he surpassed his fellows in hard work and endeavour. He was by nature versatile and loved to read books. He engaged himself in history books, medical books, Buddhist scriptures, Christian scriptures and was well versed in psychology, Taoism, even in the art of divination, incantation, and physiognomy.
Sensei’s personality was gentle and modest and he never behaved ostentatiously. His physique was large and sturdy. He always wore a contented smile. He was stout-hearted, tolerant and very prudent upon undertaking a task. Despite his will to succeed in life, he got stuck and fell into great difficulties. However, in the face of adversity he strove to train himself even more with the courage never to yield.
Presumably Sensei’s background in the arts and sciences afforded him nourishment for his cultivation and discipline, and it was very obvious that it was this cultivation, discipline and self-mastery that became the key to the creation of Reiki Ryoho.
One day, in 1922, at the age of 57, Sensei Usui climbed Mt. Kurama in Kyoto, the ancient capital city of Japan, and after 21 days of a strict fasting and severe discipline (diligent trainings / meditations) he suddenly felt One Great Reiki over his head and attained enlightenment. At the same time as he attained the enlightenment, he realized that he also received a miraculously enhanced healing ability (he obtained Reiki Ryoho). First, he tried it on himself and then experimented on his family members. The efficacy was immediate. It inspired him to create the method “USUI REIKI RYOHO TO IMPROVE MIND AND BODY” or the art of hands-on healing by means of channeling the energy of the universe — Reiki, which is two-fold and consists of healing practice and spiritual practice.
Created by Usui Sensei method (art of healing) is not the result of his research, discovery or rediscovery — it is a result of his discipline, self-improvement, knowledge and self-mastery, which led him to an awakened state of consciousness and realization of the inner healing ability as a godsend bestowed upon him.
(In the Western countries, it’s been incorrectly said that Reiki healing method was rediscovered by Usui Sensei after researches in the Buddhist scriptures.)
Sensei thought that it would be far better to offer this wonderful gift widely to the general public and share its benefits than just to keep it to himself to improve the well-being of his own family members. Thus, he opened up Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai 臼井靈氣療法學會 (Usui energy healing method association) at Aoyama, Tokyo in 1922 and began teaching classes and providing sessions. Even the outside of the building was full of pairs of shoes of the visitors who had come from near and far to learn Reiki Ryoho or/and to receive treatments.

“My Usui Reiki Ryoho (healing art) is original, never before explored, and incomparable in the world.
I have not been taught this art of healing by anyone under the heavens nor have I studied in order to obtain this mysterious ability to heal. I accidentally realized that I was given the mysterious healing ability when I felt the great power and was inspired by the mystery during a period of fasting.
Therefore, it is to be made available for the good of humankind, so that anyone may be blessed with this heavenly gift, that the soul and body may be as one, and heaven-sent well-being may be realized in one’s life.”

Mikao Usui Sensei (Reiki Ryoho Hikkey)

In September 1923 there was a great earthquake Kanto that affected around 4 million people. Conflagrations broke out immediately and, due to strong wind, fire spread to different areas. Everywhere there were groans of pains from the wounded. Sensei, feeling pity for them, went out every morning to go around the town, and he healed and saved an innumerable number of people. This is just a broad outline of his relief activities during such an emergency.
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.
Usui Sensei had a spouse — Suzuki, who was also called Sadako. They had 2 children: a boy and a girl. The daughter’s name was Toshiko, and the son, who succeeded to the family, was named Fuji.
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 that got 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.)

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.
