The REIKI history starts with Sensei Mikao Usui(1865-1926).
From a very young age he was studying in a Buddhist monastery where he was taught martial arts and the Japanese form of Chi Kung, known as KiKo.
In the monastery he discovered some old manuscripts, dating from 2,500 years ago, describing a healing method practiced by Buddha. The manuscripts were not revealing though any information about activating the energies to protect the sacred teachings from the new comers.
Mikao Usui decided to retreat for fasting, prayer and meditation for 21 days to the holy mountain Kurama Yama, not very far from the Imperial Palace in Kyoto. He had a divine experience whilst passing out he had a vision on the Tibetan symbols he was studying and new symbols whose purpose he understood.
After he came back from this experience, he descended from the mountain having the capacity to heal and he used this abilities to help others. He treated poor people, beggars and anyone without any material possibilities, but they did not appreciate the gift that Usui gave them and they went back to begging.
After this experience Usui went back to the monastery and meditated long about what has happened, realizing that he healed only the physical side of the people but not the spiritual one.
He understood that healing can not be offered to everyone and there must be appreciation and a price as an energy exchange.
He initiated over 2000 students of which only 3 have been identified: Jusaburo Ushida,Kaniachi Taketomi and Chujiro Hayashi.
Hawayo Takata(1900-1980) was born in Hawaii from Japanese parents. After her husband's premature death, she had to work very hard in order to provide for her two children and so she became severy ill.
She came in contact with Dr. Chujiro Hayashi at his clinic in Japan where she started receiving Reiki treatment for a couple of months. She was impressed with the results and she wanted to learn Reiki. She studied for a few years with Dr. Hayashi in Japan, then she returned to Hawaii where she was initiated as a Reiki Master. She was the 13th and the last Reiki Master initiated by Dr. Hayashi .
Hawayo Takata was a very powerful healer, it was she who brought Reiki to the West and she practiced and taught Reiki for more than 40 years, initiating 22 masters which have spread Reiki further all over the world.
