REIKI: It was first introduced to the West by a Hawaiian born Japanese woman Mrs. Takata
a Reiki disciple of Hayashi san who was a student of Usui sensei and Usui Reiki Ryoho
before leaving the Gakkai after Usui sensei died to strike out on his own and continue the Research
Usui sensei asked him to explore to bring back as healing experience info for the Gakkai.
After Usui SENSEI died Hayashi san changed his Reiki Protocols and started his own Reiki Society
separate from the original Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai.
I am very grateful to Hayashi san and Takata san for bringing Hayashi Reiki to the West,
but I was never comfortable with the way Mrs. Takata felt compelled
to change the truth of Usui sensei and the origins of Usui Reiki
thereby changing Reiki ‘s “history” for the earlier Pioneers of Reiki in the West that spread worldwide
So as a Reiki Master of 16 years, I looked inward and uncovered the spiritual dimension of Reiki for myself and for my students.
I taught the first of all my future Reiki classes as a path to enlightenment in 2007 at the Amrit Yoga Institute in Florida
It was quickly recognized as an awakening journey just as prana awakening is the awakening path for raja yogis
In 2010 I journeyed to Japan to discover my Reiki roots and soon learned that the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai
that Usui sensei founded was STILL in existence,
but it was a “secret Reiki society” opened only to a few Japanese born advanced Usui Reiki disciples
and certainly closed shut to Westerners.
After I returned home to Massachusetts I researched Japanese Reiki and was immediately drawn to Japan’s very famous Reiki sensei,
Hiroshi Doi sensei, who I later discovered, IS a current, and 10 year member of the secret Japanese Reiki society, The Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai” …
It felt natural and appropriate for me to study directly with Doi sensei
and join his Gendai Reiki Energy lineage and his Japanese Gendai Reiki Association.
So with the support of my Reiki Master husband, who is my teaching Partner, James, we both headed back to Japan
to study directly with Doi sensei and attend the 2012 Gendai Reiki World Network Gathering
where we represented the USA as one of the 13 Reiki Master Delegates
from around the world.
Bringing the origins of Reiki back West is such a blessing for me.
Not only did my initiation to Usui Reiki Ryoho from Gakkai member Hiroshi Doi sensei
change my internal Reiki resonance to rise un-inhibited toward happiness,
I can humbly and gratefully say that since my Gendai Reiki initiation,
I am happy. I am at peace with myself as I am and my life as it is.
Come and learn Gendai Reiki Ho.
"Temper is what gets most of us in trouble, pride is what keeps us there." ~Mark Twain
“Reactivity is what gets us in trouble, reacting to the reaction is what keeps us there”
I am a teacher of Japan’s Hiroshi Doi sensei’s Gendai Reiki-ho. The original Reiki teachings
that never came west to be western Reiki via Mrs. Takata
Though I honor Takata Sensei's vast contribution to spreading Reiki Awareness
as a Healing modal throughout the World
it is now time to return to the Japanese source and share Reiki
as the Spiritual Path Usui Sensei intended it to be
Masters, we have all tried and practiced ‘spirituality’ as it appears for us.
Many of us have travelled to exotic lands and Sat before great Masters
hoping, even trusting that ‘they’ will enlighten us!
Are you enlightened? If so, were you enlightened by anyone, ‘but yourself?
I experience enlightenment as ‘Reiki Awakening’: the Spirituality Usui Sensei realized
and named Usui Reiki and passed along to seekers of truth
And I experience the Self-Healing, self-purifying, self-transformational
resonance with Reiki through attunement with Reiki’s humble acceptance of Life as it
appears in our awareness.
I experience that Gendai Reiki is the optimum enlightenment gift to pass along via our Gakkai Lineage attunement
My husband & I experienced inherent Reiki Awaken in us when we placed our self at the foot of the Gakkai’s Usui Reiki Path
Inherent in attunement to Gendai Reiki is simplicity without any effort
Simply live by the Reiki Precepts, Practice Hatsurei-Ho meditation and
in no time be at the deepest depth of inner realms available to you
at the vibratory sensation of peaceful mind. Click on Link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-t2CAHKpWXA
I also developed a Reiki Nidra based on my Practices of Yoga Nidra. I use it more to relax before sleep and self-love
And in Healing Sessions.

Reiki is my Calling. Are you Called as well?
Understanding Reiki-do’s role in our Life.
We are born in the image and likeness of god
Along Life’s Path we lose that knowing and the ego self-image takes over
Our mission is to real-ize our divinely creative selves again
After living our life dedicated to purification of the ego self-image
our many travelled Paths finally merge and we find our self on our unique ‘Spiritual Way’
We take the Return Trip to being ourselves again
to real-izing the god-self that we are
then the Universe rejoices
And human progress and prosperity flourishes
My homeward Path is called Reiki-Do
Do means Way
In Japan’s Shinto Spirituality the manner in which purity is restored is called oharai
The acts of purification are performed by priests who act as intermediaries speaking to the Kami
on behalf of the person they ceremonially purify
This is not so unlike Purifying with Reiki
where Kami can be seen as the creative life force in all things and Reiki as the rebalancing
energizing and harmonizing power of Kami vibrating as the life force
of Love and Harmony
In Reiki Practice
The Reiki Practitioner takes the role of the symbolic channel for the creative living spirit force
and supports the Recipient in accessing the Reiki energy for their mindbody purification
The Spirit or Kami of Reiki Life Force Energy revitalizes the Creative Forces and the Life Giving Energies
bringing Balance and Harmony to the Reiki Recipient
First line of Divine Order is to Heal Yourself
The more purified the Practitioner is the more pure the Reiki being channeled
This is a combined learning that came to me through both my AYI Yoga and Gendai Reiki study and Practices
Practice it when ever you feel a loss of resonance with Reiki
1. Close your eyes and open up your palms to connect with Reiki
2. Take a deep breath in exhale placing the hands down palms up on your lap
3. Let your awareness scan the body for anxious type sensations start at the head through the body to the feet
4. PLACE your Reiki awareness ON the most active bodily sensation
5. Do not judge the sensations good or bad
6. You may experience your breathing deepen do not interfere or try to regulate it
7. Place your palms over the area of most minus-energy sensation until the sensations dissipate
and your breathing pattern has returned to normal
8. Each time you merge your awareness on minus energy sensations in this Reiki-do Purification Practice
the imbalance will be restored to resonance of reiki.

Audrey Pearson Gendai Reiki Shihan is devoted to Unconditional Love of ‘Sacred Universal Life Force in the cultural Forms and formless Forms of Reiki and Prana Shakti. Transforming fear to love in the conscious awareness of what IS as is.
Thoughts immersed in conscious awareness of universal truth, AKA Divine consciousness manifesting as divine universal revelation, AKA the Spiritual Dimension as Reiki (Peaceful mind) and as Its other name ‘Pranic life force (Prana Shakti)’, AKA acceptance of what IS as is ~’manifests as peace-filled life.
In the alchemy of Reiki and of Prana Shakti, disturbances in the mind created by judgement of an Other’s Karmic unfolding, is replaced with understanding that One cannot ever know an-Other’s inner karmic struggles, thus criticism of the Other reveals the ‘un- consciousness of ‘self-judgement’ AKA rejection of one’s own unhealed inner struggle reflected in the behavior judged in an Other.
The “Issue/Behavior rejected in the Other whether ‘same, ‘similar or at the very least of the same subject is always reflected in the Judger. It is always a self-referencing generally subconscious disturbance because the unconscious-Judger is not ‘Clear’ about the Nature of “Judge not, lest ye be judged”
To protect the unconscious ego-self the Judger will separate from the One they Judge, either Mentally Emotionally and or physically, ‘thus Spiritually. Only that’s not what happens! The Judger really separates from ‘conscious awareness’ ~
Alchemy of Reiki. If any One of us has created confrontive relationship with an Other on the mental, emotional and or physical planes, be it a past beloved guru, and or a beloved friend from the past. ‘No need to “forgive yourself”! Forgive yourself for what? ‘for actively engaging in your own Karma? Instead, restore your wounded ego to conscious-awareness again through the simplicity of humility and truth by dropping your ego self’s Image’s ‘Story’. ‘Re-connect with those you judge ‘wrong’. Set an Example for the World by Practicing what you teach others first.
