Dr. Mikao Usui

The credit for introducing Reiki to the modern world goes to Dr. Mikao Usui. Usui was born in Taniai, Japan, on August 15, 1865. He underwent a 21-day prayer and fast on Mount Kurama in the early 1920s. It’s a meditation practice known as “Yama.” Self-discipline and austerity are essential components of that spiritual practice.

During these 21 days of practice, Usui learned that the alive and active cosmic energy “Ki” or “Chi” was functioning everywhere. Additionally, he realised that any disease or human suffering could be healed using active cosmic energy.

He descended from Mount Kurama once his arduous spiritual practises were accomplished, and then he began his mission to cure the villagers’ illnesses and assist them in resolving their difficult issues.

I disagree that one can achieve this higher state by engaging in strenuous practises for only 21 days. Instead, I believe that his self-control, self-discipline, healthy eating habits, and spiritual practises that he had regulated from a young age had gifted him with this tremendous wisdom.

Usui taught Reiki to over 2000 students during his lifetime. Only twenty-one of them are recognised as “Masters” or “Shinpiden”. Dr. Mikao Usui passed away on March 9, 1926.

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, a disciple of Dr. Mikao Usui, was born on September 15, 1880, in Tokyo, Japan. He learned Reiki from Dr. Usui and established a Reiki clinic in Tokyo, Japan. Dr. Hayashi played a significant role in spreading and expanding Reiki outside of Japan and in turning it into a systematic medical practice. He also trained many students and passed away on May 11, 1940.

Mrs. Hawayo Hiromi Takata

Mrs. Hawayo Hiromi Takata was born in Hawaii, United States of America, on December 24, 1900. She was instrumental in spreading Reiki to Western countries and in its popularity in today’s world.

A piece of verbal information states that Mrs. Takata had been to Japan to meet her family members. While she was there, she unexpectedly fell ill. The doctors advised her to undergo an operation. Mrs. Takata did not give her consent for the operation and started searching for alternative medicine to recover.

As she was unable to find any suitable medical practice to cure her, she finally agreed to an operation. While she was getting ready for the operation, she heard an oracle: “The cure for your disease is in Tokyo.” She immediately cancelled the operation and proceeded to Tokyo. She underwent Reiki treatments in Hayashi’s clinic and regained her health.

During that time, Japan was involved in wars, and men were forced to participate in them. Dr. Hayashi was worried that this wonderful Reiki art would come to an end if all the men who knew Reiki died in the war. To preserve and spread this amazing practice, Dr. Hayashi trained Mrs. Takata as a Reiki Healer, despite the fact that she is a foreigner.

Mrs. Takata thoroughly studied and practised Reiki, and after she returned to America, she started a Reiki clinic. She not only treated patients there but also taught Reiki to Japanese and Westerners. This art has slowly begun to spread throughout the rest of the world from the West. Today, millions of people benefit from Reiki. Thank you, Mrs. Takata, for your unwavering and persistent efforts to spread awareness of Reiki.
