NYC Reiki & Spiritual Healing Events Message Board › Western vs Japanese Reiki

Western vs Japanese Reiki

A former member
Post #: 40
*Deeds are the criteria of a good Reiki practitioner and a good Teacher. Your mental, verbal and bodily needs, i.e., what you think, what you speak and what you do are of the greatest importance.?


Reiki Master/Teacher Responsibility

Being a Reiki Master/Teacher is a big responsibility, we owe to give our students the most honest and accurate information that we can provide in order for them to be well informed.

When I was new to Reiki, I was almost turned off not by Reiki but by a Reiki teacher who I thought wasn't Reiki

Western vs. Japanese Reiki

There are so many books written about Reiki and there are so many authors who claimed that their findings are the best. As a society living in America, we are so blessed to have the best opportunities to look for different resources in search for truth. I believe that being authentic is very important in any profession/career choice.


Reiki Lineage
I will quote Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei:

"Reiki lineage is a very important part of the Reiki system, but it is not everything.

*Neither of these is better or worse than the other. Neither is ?stronger? or ?weaker." Neither is ?more advanced or less advanced.?

*By lineage a Reiki practitioner is not noble. By lineage, a Reiki practitioner is not superior. By lineage, a Reiki practitioner is not ignoble. By lineage, a Reiki practitioner is not inferior.

*Deeds are the criteria of a good Reiki practitioner and a good Teacher. Your mental, verbal and bodily needs, i.e., what you think, what you speak and what you do are of the greatest importance.?

***By deed, a Reiki practitioner is noble. By deed, a Reiki practitioner is superior. By deed a Reiki practitioner is ignoble. By deed a Reiki practitioner is inferior. ***


Reiki is not a competition.

Reiki is both a therapeutic and spiritual practice. Reiki is a heavenly gift given to us by Usui Sensei. Reiki is a blessing that anyone can learn and is to be made available for the good of mankind.
