Long Distance Reiki & Animal Reiki
I learn from 2 traditions of Reiki: Jikiden & Usui/Holy Fire® . Among the many students of Mikao Usui sensei (the founder of the Reiki healing system), Chujiro Hayashi sensei was the key student who made Reiki well-known in the present day. Two of his students, Chiyoko Yamaguchi sensei & Hawayo Takata sensei, were also the key figures in passing the torch and bringing Reiki to the world.
Here I'll take a shot at summarizing the traditions I follow:
Developed by Chiyoko Yamaguchi sensei (Kyoto, Japan). Many of her family members learned & practiced Reiki since the time of Mikao Usui. However, eventually they practiced Reiki under the radar. Why? Because when Japan lost in World War II (1945), the country was subjected to a lot of restrictions, including medicine practices. Gradually, Reiki in Japan became pretty much radio silent while it was spreading far in the West
A number of Western Reiki practitioners attempted to track down a tradition in Japan that would be closer to the root of Reiki, but they couldn't for a while. Then in 1999, Yamaguchi sensei was discovered & when she decided to teach, she called her lineage "Jikiden Reiki".
"Jikiden" means "directly passed down". She taught her students what she was taught by Hayashi sensei. This lineage is considered the closest to Usui sensei's original teaching
Developed by William Lee Rand (Hawaii, US), who does extensive research on the root of Reiki & learned from different lineages. This practice incorporates both Reiki and another healing energy called Holy Fire (read more here)
The Holy Fire energy connected with William and with his permission, this energy gave guidance on how to develop and incorporate it to Reiki trainings. In 2014, William introduced Holy Fire along with his Reiki trainings, & has been teaching since
This healing energy has been upgrading continually over the years (named as Holy Fire I, to II, to III, & most recent - World Peace Reiki). The healing abilities of this Reiki tradition become more powerful and transformative as the upgrades go
Through my experience with both lineages, I find them distinctively unique. Jikiden Reiki is simple, straight up pure Reiki. The energy I felt is gentle & calming. With Holy Fire®, I felt that the energy is more lively & vibrant.
However, Reiki is Reiki. All the traditions of Reiki work around the foundation of this healing energy once gifted to Usui sensei. I follow my lineages but I respect all the other lineages. My teachers are amazing. They are powerful healers & they are dedicated to their teachings. They inspire me a lot & I feel so humbled whenever I talk with them. I can imagine all the devoted Reiki teachers out there doing the similar things, working toward the similar goals.
