Mrs.Takata’s Reiki Practices and Beliefs

1. Mrs. Takata practiced Reiki on herself daily.
– Practicing Reiki daily on ourselves keeps our body fully charged with Reiki energy and the flow of Reiki energy is unobstructed.

2. She always advised for self treatment before treating others.
– Treating ourselves with Reiki everyday fulfils the energy requirements of our own body and keeps us ready to meet every situation for others. I personally observed that when my left thumb was hurt and I practiced Reiki for others there used to be continuous tingling in my left thumb, indicating that Reiki energy, passing through my hands, was partially consumed by my ailing thumb and curing it while giving Reiki to others.

3. She would always initiate a family member to Reiki of chronic patients.
– Chronic patients need prolonged treatment, so it is best to have an in house Reiki practioner to manage the patient’s prolonged needs, including any emergencies. Any patient having conditions longer than three weeks was considered chronic patient by Mrs. Takata.


Reiki is a Japanese word which means Universal Life Force. Every individual is also part of this Universe. So, to understand what the universe is we have to first find out who we are, where we have come from and  where do we ultimately end up?  To know who we are we have to look within and not look for answers outside. Mr. Thomas J. Chalko In his famous book The Freedom of Choice says “Whoever knows everything, but lacks Within lacks EVERYTHING“.

So, to understand Reiki correctly and enjoy its benefits fully we have to search within and not go by the words what others are advocating.

Why treat the Solar plexus first

Solar plexus is the central part of our body and acts like the sun that radiates light and warmth all around. When the solar plexus is active it radiates life energy and vitality to every part of the body and also radiates it into the atmosphere around us. Solar plexus is said to be the seat of our subconscious mind which keeps working day and night. Almost entire body energy requirements are generated in the solar plexus and it is continuously distributed throughout the body. Due to regular flow of this vital energy our body remains energetic, fit and fine. However, when this flow is interrupted or restricted we fall sick. This sickness may appear as physical or mental or environmental.

– Sickness is physical when energy generation in the body is insufficient.
– It is mental when subconscious mind stops supporting our thoughts.
– It becomes environmental when connection between subconscious mind and the conscious mind is interrupted.

Blockages are removed and energy balance is restored through sympathetic nervous system. So when we treat the solar plexus with Reiki first we ensure that the generation of energy is optimal and also that the flow of energy through our body is uninterrupted. It helps in restoring the desired energy balance of our body for better physical health, mental health and environmental conditions.

Magic of well built affirmation

A boy suffered from all sorts of ailments including muscular dystrophy. He was about 13 years old and could not walk upright. He could only move around using his four limbs – his hands and knees. His body was crooked, twisted and crippled. His mother took him to a doctor who was well versed with diseases. The doctor’s son suffered with same disease but could not be saved. He declared that there was no chance of recovery. The lady consulted several other doctors. Every one agreed that there was no chance for a cure, though they encouraged and cheered them as best as they could. At last she asked a doctor, what he would do if he were his own son? The doctor answered that he would fight and fight for life till the last breath.
Hearing this the boy himself built up an affirmation and included all the qualities in the affirmation that he needed most. He repeated the same affirmation over and over again without making any change at all. The affirmation was ” I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS AND HAPPY.” It was the last thing on his lips at night and the first thing in the morning till he could stand up straight and walk upright on his feet (Source – The Master Key System. by Charles Haanel)

I have also observed that well built affirmations, when used in conjunction with Reiki, produce miraculous results.


Reiki is not a Religion

Many a times people keep telling me belief or faith is a must before they take a Reiki session for treatment. However, primary requirement for Reiki healing is INTENTION not faith or belief on the part of both, the healer as well as the healee. Faith, or belief, as I look at, is concerned with religion. Intention on the other hand is just the objective or aim on part of the healer to cure the ailment of the healee and on part of the healee to be cured of the ailment. Time and time again I try to explain to them the difference between intention and faith or belief but every time I find that their minds are clouded, maybe because we are deeply conditioned that way. People who relate Reiki with religion fail to enjoy the wonderful fruits of Reiki and sometimes keep going round and round, many a times till they reach the dead end of the road.
