The Reiki Primer


Way back in Kindergarten or Pre-school when you were first learning to read, your
teachers likely gave you books and lessons that were the beginnings of your
learning. These were the basics. These materials were referred to as "Primer",
and they prepared you for later learning. This section is for the absolute beginner
to Reiki as they begin their Reiki Journey, in essence a "Reiki Primer". In this
section you will find a basic understanding of Reiki, what it is, how it works, and
what you need to do to get started.
Reiki is an enlightenment system and a healing art. Some focus more on one
aspect than the other. That is, some teach Reiki only as a healing system while
others may teach it only as a spiritual system. Either is Reiki. Reiki is primarily
used in the West (i.e., the United States, Europe, Australia) as a healing system.
The system of Reiki was invented and developed by a man named Mikao Usui
(pronounced Me-ka-oh OOh-su-ee) in the early 1900's. Reiki is often translated
to mean "Universal Life Energy", but can also mean enlightenment or the coming
of together of the Universal Spirit of Creation with our own.
Mikao Usui trained a number of teachers of this system. Many of those teachers
taught students of their own. There are many lines of Reiki practiced in Japan
from these teachers. Usui founded a school there that is said to maintain his
original teachings. This school is called the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. They

generally are a closed club and do not share information with outsiders.
Reiki as practiced in the west comes from the teachings of Mrs. Hawayo Takata.
Mrs. Takata was a student of Chujiro Hayash, a retired Naval Officer and student
of Mikao Usui. Most western Reiki practices come from the teachings of Mrs.
Takata.
At its most basic level, Reiki is a set of five principles for living, a set of hand
positions for treating self and others, and the receiving of an attunement to
connect to the reiki energy. An attunement (or empowerment) is a simple
ceremony that helps you to reconnect to the energy that is reiki performed by a
Reiki teacher or "master"..
There are three levels in Reiki. In level one, you learn the reiki principles, the hand
positions and then receive an attunement. In level two, you learn the three reiki
symbols, distance healing and receive another attunement. In level three, you
learn the reiki master symbol, the attunement process, how to teach, and receive
the master attunement.
Reiki works by simple laying of hands and intent. It helps brings us back into
harmony with the Universal life energy. This is often healing.
In reiki you do not use your own energy but let this loving Universal life energy flow
through you to others. People who do reiki are often called "reiki channels" or
that one "channels" reiki. This word "channel" has several meaning in the new
age communities and in common use might mean "channel" as in spirits. It
needs to be clearly stated here that reiki is not about channeling spirits. The word
"channel" here in relation to reiki simply means that we are in tune with this
Universal life energy and let it flow.

Many have added in much material in the west since 1980. Some have added in
"reiki guides", crystals, pendulums, reiki "rays", psychic surgeries, and many
other practices that are often taught along with reiki but are not part of reiki.
The ability to do Reiki cannot be learned in books. To do reiki you need to
receive an attunement from a reiki teacher. This can be done in person, or via
distance.
This is Reiki at it's most basic. From here, if you would like more information
please continue reading in the Level I manual.
