                                    ***********************

The following message from Reiki Master Inger J. F. Droog 5th Generation from in the direct lineage from Mikao Usui -

The intention of this message is to clarify and describe the form of REIKI as we know it today. In doing so, I wish to contribute to the clarity of what Reiki is, does and means. I have practiced this wonderfully simple form of healing since early 1980 and taught it since 1984.

 

The current form of Reiki was given to the world around 1900 by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese educator and theologian.  He had studied the works of the great world Teachers. While he was teaching at Doshisha University in Kyoto, he was asked by one of his graduating students if he believed in the healing power Jesus gave as was told in the Bible.

 

Dr Usui affirmed his belief, but could not prove how it worked and launched search and study for the answers to his questions. His personal quest lasted many years and brought him to various parts of the world in the process.

 

After years of study and inner seeking, he went into meditation on Mt Kurama, outside of Kyoto, and waited for twenty-one days, for an answer.

 

On the last evening of his quest he had a vision, in which symbols appeared which he had recognized as important years before. That night, he knew he had the answer to his quest and returned to his world with Reiki.

 

The form he created is known by various words as:

“The Usui System of Reiki Healing”,

“The Usui System of Natural Healing”

“The Usui System of Drugless Therapy”

“Usui Shiki Ryoho”

 

The latter name of the form is the Japanese phonetic way of saying the same thing as the others. It is now used in relation to Lineage Bearer of this system, Phyllis Furumoto and The Reiki Alliance, a body of Reikimasters honoring the old tradition of the form of Usui Shiki Ryoho as was taught by Phyllis’ Grandmother,  Hawayo Takata, ( 1900-1980)

It was Hawayo Takata who brought Reiki from Japan to the west in 1937..

 

 

First Degree Reiki

 

First Degree Reiki is the beginning - the Essence of learning Reiki, for life. Learning it gives many possibilities for personal growth and development. Learning Reiki also includes the practice of giving physical Reiki treatments to yourself and to your friends, through the placement of hands on the person’s fully clothed body. First degree Reiki is taught by a Reiki Master who has gone through her/his own process of being trained and has practiced Reiki for an extended period of time to allow the faster frequencies of Reiki Energy to “settle” into the body. During that time they have learned about and experienced the energy through their practice as well as and its effectiveness in their lives.

 

As with all degrees of Reiki, the new student-to-be is “initiated” into Reiki, thereby making the learning of Reiki different from learning all other forms of healing. It is not a mental process of study.

 

Other forms or healing usually ‘use’ or ‘manipulate’ the energy. (The practitioner massages, moves, strokes energy on or in the energy field of the body.)

Reiki IS the energy, pure and simple. The initiated and trained practitioner giving a Reiki treatment places his/her hands on various positions on the recipient’s body, while the he/she allows the energy to fill his/her “battery”. It is the “recharged battery” which enables all personal healing to occur for the client. There is nothing more to do but to “allow”. Whatever healing that is needed will occur. The client does not have to believe in the energy or in the treatment.

 

The Energy always works!

 

 

 

Why do Second Degree Reiki?

 

Everything is energy! All seemingly solid matter has a level of vibration and a frequency. Our Soul houses our body, and that has its own frequency. Our body energy vibrational rate changes, elevating during and after the initiation into Reiki. During the ninety days of recommended daily practice doing self-treatment with First Degree Reiki, a period of cleansing naturally occurs on our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.

 

After experiencing and observing the inner cleansing and healing which Reiki naturally and organically brings (usually for at least 3 to 6 months) it is possible that an feeling of “I want to know more” starts to nudge or 'tingle the thinker' from within.

 

Sometimes that 'tingle' comes for various personal reasons. It may appear as a desire to support a family member with Reiki, but that person may live at a distance and cannot come for physical treatments. Sometimes there is a personal upheaval; the loss of parent or a partner, a move to a different house or job, an “empty nest” makes it clear that mental healing is needed at deeper levels; Reiki brings clear and personal ‘signs’ to the Reiki student about him/her being 'ready' for more. Whatever the method or reason, it is not necessarily a mental 'decision' to learn Second Degree, but rather a feeling from the heart that the next phase of growth in awareness is “knocking at the door of the Soul”. All that is needed then is for the personality to follow through!

 

Generally the Reiki student calls the Master who initiated him/her into First Degree to talk about that inner urge. The timing for the next step may even be very clear because just at the moment of the request, the Reiki Master is holding a Second Degree class… that week! Divine Timing! Attendance is suddenly possible and the “tingle” has been answered!

 

Learning Second Degree Reiki indicates a personal willingness to accept a deeper commitment to one’s own healing, as well as a promise to one’s Self to follow a path of Service. Second Degree students learn the use of the Symbols Dr. Usui was given in his “Mountaintop Experience”.

A personal process of cleansing and inner clarity is the result of this initiation.

Spiritual Intention:


The wholeness of who we really are is waiting inside each one of us for reawakening. Have you felt the call to awaken to your true self, the self who is at the very core of your being? Are you willing to take some time to nurture yourself while looking inward, in order to heal your life’s wounds? Are you ready to call upon your own Inner Knowing in order to connect to the wisdom of the Collective Consciousness of Creator, Mother Earth, Spirit Animals Guides, Ancestor and Allies to create a sacred union between yourself and the Divine within you? This is the motivation for awakening the Shamanic Apprentice within. This illuminates the highest path for the healing of ourselves, as well as for our Mother Earth.


If you are seeking a more fulfilling way to be on this planet and longing for a soulful path of living, studying the shamanic path is a lifestyle that can guide you. 


Through this process of awakening, we experience an energetic attunement with the Universal Wisdom, which helps us heal our past wounds and relationships.  We learn through the processes of consciously connecting with Mother Earth and Journeying for Spiritual Guidance, how to create balance in order to find our way back to wholeness and our life’s Sacred Path and purpose.   


These processes to awakening, shifts us from the path of unavoidable fate, to one of conscious co-creation. This allows our daily living to resonate with our soul’s path and with our core truth. During our quest, we learn to re-story our lives in order to understand the guidance that has come in the past; this creates healing in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. By listening to our inner wisdom, we find the answers to life’s bigger questions, such as ‘what am I here to do’. Here we learn how to connect to our deeper purpose and awaken to the depths of the Spiritual knowledge that lives within us.


The key to authentic healing and lasting transformation at a deep core level requires one to enter into a more soulful journey that includes and unifies the physical body, the mind, the heart, the soul and the spirit. In this way, we integrate all of our gifts, in all realms, joining us with the guidance of the Universal Consciousness. This causes a sacred union between all parts of our many selves and creates a more encompassing healing, which helps us become whole on all levels. 


Shamanism is insightful, grounding, spiritual in nature and transformational. If you have been searching without finding answers, perhaps shamanic processes will become the catalyst for transformation in your life, as it has been in mine.


I invite you to join me in learning about this enlightened path of consciousness. Shamanism has been a cornerstone in my own healing. I feel privileged to share with you my own Shamanic experiences. Also in sharing the wisdom of my teachers, I honor them and acknowledge them with respect.

Spiritual Intention: The time to remember who we truly are is now. The time to look inward in order to heal ourselves is now. This is the motivation for awakening the Shaman within. Here we learn to call upon our own inner wisdom, as well as the wisdom of the Collective Consciousness, Creator, Archetypal Forces, Power Animals, Spirit guides and Ancestor, to create a sacred union between ourselves, and the Divine. This illuminates the highest path for the healing of ourselves, as well as for our Mother Earth.


Through this process of awakening, we experience an energetic attunement with the Universal Wisdom and are able to heal our past wounds and shift from a path of unavoidable fate, to one of conscious co-creation. We learn to ground with Mother Earth and then to open to the magic of spiritual guidance, to create balance and to find our way back to wholeness and our life's sacred path and purpose.   


This process allows our soul to resonate with our core truth, in the quest to re-story our lives and create healing on all levels. We bring out our inner wisdom and we find the answers to bigger questions, such as "what am I here to do". This helps connect us to our deeper purpose and awaken to the depths of the Spiritual knowledge that lives within us.

 

The wholeness of who we really are is waiting inside each of us for reawakening. It is time to awaken your essential self, which is at the very core of your true being. You will truly see, we are really all spiritual beings having a human experience. If you are seeking a more fulfilling way to be on this planet and longing for a soulful path of living, shamanism is a lifestyle that can guide you. 

Shamanism is informative, magical as well as transformational. If you have been searching without finding answers, perhaps shamanic work will become an ally and a useful tool for transformation in your life, as it has been in mine. The key to authentic healing and lasting transformation at a deep core level requires one to enter into a more soulful journey that includes and unifies the physical body, the mind, the heart, the soul and the spirit. In this way, we integrate all of our gifts, in all realms, joining us with the guidance of the Universal consciousness. This causes a sacred union between all parts of our many selves and creates a more encompassing healing, which helps us become whole on all levels.

 

I invite you to join me in learning about this enlightened path of consciousness. Shamanism has been the cornerstone of my own Spiritual awakening and healing. I would be honored to guide you to yours, through the teachings of my own personal Shamanic and spiritual experiences and lessons.
