"The ascended masters inspired the original Reiki healing method upon Dr. Usui and sponsored him to teach it to others. This was done by several ascended masters who have worked with eastern students to teach them about Chi, going all the way back to the Yellow Emperor, who is today an ascended master. Dr. Usui was indeed a mature lifestream, and he has now completed the process of qualifying for his ascension.
The spiritual teachings that form the foundation for the Reiki method are very similar to the teachings on spiritual energy taught by the ascended masters. They are similar because they came from the same source, namely the universal brotherhood or the ascended masters, but which has been known under many other names throughout history.
The healing energies invoked by the Reiki method – when done correctly – are the same energies that Christians call the Holy Spirit and the same energies known in Buddhism.
As most Reiki practitioners know, Reiki has become increasingly diversified, and therefore some branches have moved away from the original teachings released to Dr. Usui. In fact, I must tell you that none of Dr. Usui’s original students had the same level of Christhood that he had attained. Therefore, the method was somewhat degraded after Dr. Usui’s transition, even by those who claim to follow his method.
The simple fact is that Dr. Usui gave a somewhat unstructured training because there is a limit to how much you can force Chi – or the Holy Spirit – into a structured system. Dr. Usui understood that a system can only form a chalice that allows the energies of the Holy Spirit to stream forth without being scattered. Yet it is very easy for a system to start restricting the flow of the spirit, and when that happens, the system will begin to be a hindrance rather than a chalice.
The ascended masters have given some teachings on healings through the Holy Spirit that also apply to practicing Reiki. Some of the leaders that followed Dr. Usui did not fully understand that structure can restrict the spirit, so starting with Dr. Hayashi the movement has begun to become more structured, which has caused some branches to go too far. This has caused certain questionable beliefs to creep into the movement.
Here are some of them:
- There is a belief that anyone can learn Reiki and that by running a group of people through a structured training course, they will all be able to channel the Reiki energy.There is a belief that anyone trained to channel Reiki energy will do so without any involvement from the person’s ego. There is a belief that because the Reiki energy has wisdom, it will heal only what should be healed, independently of the practitioner’s belief or consciousness.There is a belief that the practitioner will never take on karma or energy from the patient.
- These beliefs are not unconditionally correct. The simple fact is that because the Reiki healing method makes use of a practitioner, the healing energy is channeled through the practitioner’s consciousness. If it wasn’t, there would be no need for the practitioner. Therefore, it is a simple fact that the energy can be affected by the practitioner’s consciousness. In other words, the quality of the Reiki session is in direct proportion to the purity of the practitioner’s consciousness. Physician, heal thyself!
It is a dangerous illusion to believe otherwise. This is similar to the fact that some New Age people believe anyone can learn to channel messages from non-material beings. The statement is true, because almost anyone can learn to turn the dial of consciousness and tune in to a realm beyond the material. Yet the question is what kind of beings the person tunes in to, and the same holds true for a Reiki session. If you are a true healer, you need to have and use Christ discernment.
Not only are there different forms of Chi, but there are many lower energies that we might call psychic energy. As stated in my teachings on Holy Spirit healings, these energies can actually produce what seems like healings.
You will see that Dr. Usui received the Reiki method after having followed the spiritual path for many years. In other words, until he had reached a certain level of spiritual attainment, a certain level of personal Christhood, he could not be the instrument for bringing Reiki into the material universe. Likewise, until a person has reached a certain level of Christhood, that person cannot be a pure channel for the Reiki energy. To believe otherwise is to ignore not only the value of Dr. Usui’s personal efforts but also the entire lineage of the Master-Disciple relationship that the ascended masters have sponsored for millennia.
Dr. Usui had become part of that lineage, and to be a true Reiki practitioner, you must also become part of that lineage. In other words, you cannot necessarily become a full-fledged Reiki practitioner by taking a standard course. Some will already have attained a level of Christhood before taking a course, and they can immediately serve as pure channels. Others will not be pure and might need a long process to reach a reasonable degree of purity.
In fact, all Reiki practitioners would do well to follow the path to personal Christhood and to see Reiki as a life-long learning process that will never be completely finished. You will not know everything there is to know about Chi while you are still in embodiment. To believe otherwise easily leads to pride, and this can influence your Reiki practice in a negative – and very subtle – way.
I strongly recommend that all practitioners of any kind of healing, especially one that involves direct physical contact, make a sincere effort to use Archangel Michael’s Rosary for protection and Mother Mary’s rosaries to clear their energy fields. These rosaries do invoke certain Chi energies. For the less advanced Reiki practitioner, protection and transmutation of energy can make a major difference in the quality and purity of the Reiki sessions. In other words, by using these tools you can still practice Reiki as you grow toward Christhood.
Another important consideration for all types of healing is that the intent of the practitioner can – at subconscious levels – influence the session. It is especially important to be on guard for the intent to heal any ailment. This is particularly important when a practitioner is charging for the session and therefore can feel a subtle pressure to give the patient value for his money—a tendency that is very common in the West.
In reality, not all ailments will be healed by the Holy Spirit, as was demonstrated in my healings. Yet if the practitioner is not completely non-attached, it is easy to use psychic energy to produce a healing that does not come through the Holy Spirit.
The key insight here is that it is not the Reiki practitioner’s job to produce the healing of a particular symptom or even a feeling of well-being. It is the job of the practitioner to be the purest possible channel for the Reiki energy. The practitioner simply lets the energy flow and is completely non-attached to any noticeable results or absence of results. For a practitioner to reach this kind of purity, he or she must completely overcome the tendency – so common in the West – to measure success by visible results. Do right action and be non-attached to the fruits of action.
Furthermore, if the practitioner does not have pure intentions, it is always possible that the practitioner can take on energy or karma from the patient. This often happens before of after the actual channeling of Reiki energy. If this was not possible, the Reiki healing technique would have to override the practitioner’s free will. No technique that is of the Light will override people’s free will.
As another indication that the practitioner’s consciousness can limit the flow of energy. There are many Reiki practitioners who already have a deep understanding of what are stated here and are on the right track to developing Reiki even further. In any endeavor such as this, it is always necessary to find a balance between remaining true to the founding principles, yet allowing the method to evolve. Christhood is the key to finding that balance.
Currently, the field of Reiki is a mixed bag. Yet there is much of value and there are many sincere people who could take it to a higher level. And I can assure you that the ascended masters are willing to work with those who will place themselves in the line of the Master-disciple relationship, as Dr. Usui did. I also believe the tools and teachings the ascended masters could be of value to these people. Seek first the Kingdom of God – the Christ consciousness – and all else will be added unto you."
