Jikiden Reiki

Updated: Feb 2, 2022

Jikiden Reiki is unique in the way that it is more pure and authentic form of Reiki and does not have Western influence. Jikiden means 'directly taught' in Japanese. Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in 1920s. When Reiki left Japan and being introduced to the West by Hawayo Takata in 1940, other Western Reiki masters have started to add other elements such as hand positions and incorporating a concept of chakra and other healing modality. Jikiden Reiki is simple but most effective, simply "laying on hands" around the area the practitioner feels "bye - sen" (area that feels heat, pulsating - often the area has pains, build up of toxins etc ). However the principle of living with Reiki 5 kai (principles) is considered as a fundamental part of Reiki practitioners both in Western and Jikiden Reiki. In order to pass Reiki, it is important for practitioners to live with 5 kai principles. Reiki supports one's healing abilities and Reiki practitioners' role is assisting clients by administering Reiki.
