1: The Reiki Stairway to Heaven
A Reiki energy transmission has been sent to all who read this chapter. As you read, Reiki is being sent to you to further cleanse your system and take you deeper into a space of communion with the Divine.
Reiki is a form of Divine energy healing. The wordReikiliterally translates from Japanese as "Universal Life Force." This system of healing was discovered around the turn of the previous century by a Japanese mystic named Mikao Usui, who lived from 1865 to 1926. Since its discovery, Reiki has grown to be perhaps the world's most popular form of energetic healing, and yet the deeper potential for Reiki as a system of spiritual awakening has, in many ways, remained untapped.
The Five Principles
There is written evidence that Mikao Usui was interested in Reiki as a path not only for healing but also for spiritual awakening. In his teachings, he offered five principles of Reiki that embody an awakened spiritual point of view for being and living in the world. Though translations of these principles can be found in numerous books and on many websites, each with its own interpretation of the principles, all of the translations express the importance of a daily practice of transcending anger, letting go of worry, expressing gratitude, honoring all life, and living and working with integrity. Following is my own interpretation of the many available translations of Usui's Five Principles of Reiki:
 Just for today, I forgive all sources of anger.
Just for today, I release all worry.
Just for today, I live with gratitude.
Just for today, I am kind to all living things.
Just for today, I am honest in all that I do.
 As these principles show, the original goal of Reiki was not just physical or emotional healing; it was meant to guide a person who wishes to follow a spiritual path. Many Reiki Masters still teach Usui's Five Principles, but too often that is where the spiritual aspect of the Reiki teaching ends.
It is my belief that Usui's Reiki principles actually point to the possibility of how deeply Reiki can impact and change our lives: that Reiki can, in fact, be a doorway to spiritual awakening, to realizing that place ofno separationbetween you and the Divine, and that Divine essence that is in all things. Unfortunately, until recently there have been few specific Reiki techniques that actually address the deep karmic issues that prevent us from fully living Usui's Five Principles of Reiki. These issues occur because we are too lost in the consciousness of separation to keep our hearts open; Reiki can be used to heal those spiritual issues and open our lives to the Divine.
 Reiki Training
Throughout 2007, I was shown new Reiki techniques that allow Usui's original spiritual intent for Reiki to be realized. The new Reiki empowerments and techniques laid out in this book are not intended as a Reiki certification program, nor as a replacement for proven Reiki healing techniques. The empowerments and techniques here are supplemental to the Reiki system and allow both the layperson and the trained Reiki practitioner to use Reiki as a path to spiritual awakening. Though this book does provide some wonderful new Reiki tools that can be adapted for personal healing, my goal in writing this book is to reclaim Reiki as a path for spiritual awakening. Those wishing to learn more about Reiki for the purpose of physical or emotional healing should either get professional Reiki training from a certified Reiki Master or read my previous book,The Reiki Magic Guide to Self-Attunement, which will allow you to attune yourself to all levels of Reiki, including the Master level.
