The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui Reviews
Okay, so I really was just expecting to have like another journal or book with more background info on Reiki. More info other than what we get in our lesson books. So when the small book arrived I skimmed through it and see many. I mean many photo illustrations showing you more direct hand positions for a wide variety of physical and health wise ailments. Like asthma, coughing, arthritis and so on. The book has all photos numbered and when you're looking up specifics for say example asthma it'll direct you to the recommended Reiki symbol to be used and or the proposed hand positions via which exact photo to look at. Just all good info to have.
I have been into numerous martial arts (Judo, Jujitsu, Karate-Do, Hanbo-Jutsu and Kenjutsu) and other universal energy arts (Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga and Reiki) for more than fifty five years. Since I have been a Reiki Master I have read countless books on Reiki and other healing arts; however, I had never read this excellent manual (The original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui with a forward by William Lee Rand) until recently.
This book provides grounded, practical techniques that are clearly rooted in the systematic method presented by Usui-sensei. You will not find much to help you in this book if you are looking for a more shamanic or intuitive approach to Reiki, but it is excellent if you are hoping to find a step by step guidebook. I would highly recommend this work for level one practitioners or for those who have trouble sensing energy, because the approach presented relies on method over any innate or trained sensitivity on the part of the practitioner.
It is quite interesting to read how far from the original Reiki of Dr. Usui has been adjusted to fit the Western World.
So far, this is an excellent book. The one MAJOR drawback that I see is the photos in the Kindle edition are tiny and hard to see - more like thumbnails. For the price I would think the pictures would be much larger (or if you could click on them for a full sized version). If you could please address this, I would much appreciate it.
I just finished reading through this delightful book and found it so informative. Knowing it was written using Dr. Usui's own text for his students reassured me that this was the real thing. We, as Reiki practioners have been led to believe that Reiki was taught only orally and there was no written text. It is amazing to find that this is not true - there were textbooks that were used as tools during class. It has certainly been a new tool I will use in my practice because I was not taught specific treatments for certain conditions. This book spells it out, complete with pictures of hand positions and explanations. It is like a breath of fresh air for me and I feel much closer to the source of the rediscovery of this ancient practice.
Reiki is real, and Dr. Mikao Usui rejuivinated this ancient healing technique and documented his life lessons learned. This will make you feel better, and you can be the conduit for healing others. Having Dr Usui's original text is a baseline for all other Reiki learning. Ancient, powerful, eastern faith in universal energy healing the human body is what you learn reading this. This is a lifetime passion.
As a Reiki Master in the Usui Traditional Reiki system, this book is a Treasure, and worth its weight in gold!
