Memorial Stone Translation of Master Usui

Memorial Stone Translation of Master Usui

The memorial stone of Master Usui

New translation (2015) from Japanese to English by Dr. Mark Hosak of the Usui memorial in Saihoji temple. There already exist different translations of the inscription on the memorial.

When I (Mark) had a closer look on the inscription, I recognized, that there are some parts which and phrases which have not been translated and that some words were translated like they are modern Japanese. If we look on the inscription as an old text from 1927 the translation of the memorial can be different.

As it is written in the inscription itself, it is like a sutra-text. This means that there are many levels of meanings of word and phrases in the memorial. Therefore I write for many years in every German Reiki-Magazin an article of one the sentences, variations of translations with explanations of the religious, political, historical, cultural and spiritual background. In fact this inscription goes really deep and it is possible to learn about Usui, Reiki and Japan. The memorial also gives a complete guide to personal and spiritual development.

The memorial stone of the life’s work of Master Usui, the founder of the spiritual method.

The stone engraved epitaph of the work of master Usui

It is said that one achieves the inner wealth by regularly building up the true training of mental exercises. It is said that the meritorious deed is to spread the path of teaching, initiating, and redeeming others from their grief to happiness, performing events in all kinds of places outside. The dignity of a teacher may be greater than that of merit and many years of experience as well as outstanding sincerity.

From time immemorial, the honorable learned sages and philosophers have handed down knowledgeable traditions. He was probably like one of those who founded a new school.

The spiritual life energy (reiki) of the universe can be traced back to masters like Usui in the past and those who have recently become masters.

At first, everyone heard that he was spreading a method of improving body and soul. Even if he sent them home, they asked him together for instruction and treatment.

What is it that made him famous and shining?

The common name of the Master is Mikao, his Buddhist name is Gyôhan. He was born in the village of Taniai in the district of Yamagata in Gifu Prefecture, whose ancestors go back to Chiba Tsunetane (1118-1201).

The posthumous name of the father is Taneuji. His commonly used name is Uzaemon. The family name of the mother is Kawai. The master was born on August 15 of the first year of the Keiô era (April 7, 1865 to September 8, 1868).

As he got older, he traveled by ship to the west and deftly went through China.

Over time he got the extraordinary going. However, it developed differently than hoped. Although he suffered defeat and disrespect over and over again, he simply did not give up. He was training more and more to do it.

One day he climbed Kurama Mountain. He renounced food and performed hard and laborious ascetic practices. On 20.-21. Day he suddenly sensed a sensational mystical energy (Reiki) above his head. He suddenly received the method of natural healing of spiritual life energy. From then on, he tried this on his own body.

When the master tried this on family members, he observed the success on the spot. Instead of doing something good for the family members alone, he considered teaching people far and wide.

When he became friends with this idea in the course of this happy event, he moved to Tôkyô Aoyama in the district of Harajuku in April of the year Taishô 11 (1922).

He set up an academy and taught the Reiki healing method. He performed treatments. From near and far, they came to ask him. Outside, the shoes of many people gathered.

In September of the 12th year (1923), a earthquake disaster occurred with a conflagration. This led to traumatic injuries and excruciating pain. In the places where he could make a difference, the Master deeply felt the pain. At dawn he set out and wandered around the city. Irrespective of the fact that he did not know what he would receive, he treated patients with no prospect of payment.

Unexpectedly, he turned to them. Saving from grief under the most adverse circumstances is so great that it seeks no equal.

After his gym had become too small, he took a divination as an opportunity to build in February of the year Taishô 14 (1925) outside the city in Nakano.

As his reputation grew in the area, he became a man not infrequently invited for his reputation. Master accepted these requests. He went to Kure, then made his way to Hiroshima and finally arrived in Saga.

During his stay in Fukuyama, he unexpectedly contracted illness and eventually died in an inn. That was on March 9 of the year Taishô 15.

At the time of his death, he was 62 years old. His wife’s name was Suzuki and given name Teiko (Sadako) and gave birth to a boy and a girl. He called his son Fuji (Buddhist Funi) and he inherited his house.

Master was modest and meek in his personality. He did not care about his outward appearance.

He had a great physique. He always had a smile on his face. Whenever there was a matter, he showed inner strength, was patient, and prepared himself with the utmost care.

He inherently had talent and craftsmanship. He had a penchant for reading and rummaged a lot in biographies based on historical records. He was well versed in medical literature, Buddhist sutra, and sacred texts of Christianity. From the areas of knowledge of the state of mind, methods of recluse monks to supernatural powers, spell and summon magic with magic formulas, divination with oracle sticks, to the art of foreseeing the future of face diagnosis, there was nothing he did not know about.

Due to the material for training mental exercises probably developed so the life history of the master in science and art. It is clear and obvious that the training of mental exercises formed the key and the whole in the founding of the spiritual method.

Looking back, this spiritual method makes it clear that it should not be limited to treating illnesses and bad habits. The point is that the supernatural abilities of gifted nature form the basis, causing the adept to complete the spiritual heart, to keep the body healthy and to accept a life of prosperity.

It follows that this person is supposed to teach, in general, to follow the teachings of the late Meiji-Tennô, who is to recite five principles (rules of life) in the morning and in the evening and draw attention to the spiritual heart.

First, it says: Today you should not be annoyed. Second, it says: one should not be sad. Third, it says: Be thankful! Fourth, it says: Dedicate yourself to your karma! Fifth, it says: Get used to being benevolent to the beings and your soul.

This is truly a very important instruction in the development of mental power. This is the one way that was taught by the sages and sages of ancient times.

If you become a master, you should compare them (the rules of life) with a fortunate secret method and a spiritual cure for countless illnesses, and make their characteristics known in all places.

Moreover, this is not about loftiness at all, but about achieving the art of spiritual teaching and making an effort to understand the content in an understandable way. When you sit down on your knees, direct your attention inward, breathe deeply and exhale, fold your hands in front of your heart and recite morning and night (the rules of life), you develop a pure and healthy mind as a result of a balanced and sincere practice.

The reason is simple, that this spiritual method should also reach many people. This is not just the change in the perception of the evolving progress of the era of recent years.

Fortunately, one should spread this spiritual method in an open way. With this way of virtue to be protected by the people of the world and the will of the spiritual heart of the people, the needy are to be helped a great deal.

Why is that? Of course, it is not just about the successful healing of difficult to cure conditions such as depression and chronic illnesses.

About 2000 other people have become disciples of the Master. Those among them, who are his most outstanding students in the capital city, are holding meetings and continuing the significant achievement. And many of those around them dedicate many to this method.

Although the Master has gone away, the spiritual method should be spread as a guide for all ages of the world.

The Master received his famous and shining reputation out of himself. Oh, how great and great is passing on under heaven to others!

The fact that so many Samurai learned and had a conversation with a Master these days led to the construction of a stone in the Saihôji Cemetery in Toyotama District, with the intention that these merits should be written in imperishable verses by means of a Buddhist text. The task of authorship for the text was brought to me.

I feel deeply touched to serve Master’s outstanding and deserving work. The many samurai praise the close friendship between teacher and student. I resolutely accepted the task of describing an overview.

We hope that we can do everything for future generations, that when they see it (the memorial stone), they feel deeply touched, look up to it, admire it, respectfully speak and proclaim.

Shingon Reiki Short Description

Shingon Reiki 真言靈氣

Shingon Reiki was founded in 2005 by Dr. Mark Hosak developed after 12 years of research on the sources of the Usui Reiki healing method. On the one hand, the development of Shingon Reiki includes the history of Reiki since Mikao Usui (1865-1926) and, on the other hand, the career of Dr. Mark Hosak who began learning Japanese at the age of thirteen with Japanese martial arts masters.

Reiki and Buddhism 霊気と仏教

Through his studies in East Asian Art History and Japanese Studies at the University of Heidelberg and during his three-year stay in Japan as a scholarship holder of the DAAD and Rotary, Dr. Mark Hosak in the course of his research on Buddhist rituals and healing, recognized links to Reiki. In 1995, he discovered the master symbol in sutras and the origin of the mental healing symbol in Siddham script, which became the focus of his master’s and doctoral thesis.

The Reiki founder Mikao Usui was born in 1865 into a samurai family. As part of his education, he learned in a monastery school of Tantric Tendai Buddhism and later became a monk. Tendai unites the teachings of Zen, Amida and Shingon Buddhism.

The memorial stone at the tomb of Mikao Usui was newly re-translated by Dr. Mark Hosak and published in honor of Mikao Usui’s 150th birthday in Usui Special Edition (Olivers Verlag) 2015. The text was written in the technical terms of a Buddhist sutras. It describes Reiki as a spiritual method and natural healing art. With Reiki healing should not only refer to symptoms and illnesses, but to the completion of the spiritual heart with mental exercises, to the development of the personality and the training of natural and supernatural abilities. Two methods of application are described: giving Reiki by laying on of hands and the contemplative meditation of the rules of life, which goes back to a basic Buddhist sutra, which also describes the applications and initiations with the Reiki master symbol.

Since the time of Usui, the following basic effects designated to Reiki to activate the self-healing powers: detoxification, vitalization, pain relief, relaxation, calming, and regeneration. The same effects could be shown for meditation, as well as for Reiki in numerous studies. This is because Reiki applications are like an attentiveness meditation, with the addition of Reiki energy.

The origin of the mental healing symbol is used in Buddhist temples for the living and deceased in healing rituals of the mind / heart and dissolving karmic entanglements.

Etymology of Shingon Reiki 真言靈氣の語源

The Japanese term Shingon translates into English: ‚True words‘. Shingon in Japanese stands for the ancient Indian Sanskrit term Mantra. At the same time, Shingon is the name of a Japanese school of Tantric Buddhism. Reiki means ’spiritual life energy‘. Shingon Reiki is therefore the ‚Spiritual Life Energy of True Words‘.

Contents of Shingon Reiki 真言靈氣の内容

Shingon Reiki primarily includes the western and Japanese traditions of traditional Usui Reiki. Added to this is the research on the resources of Usui, from which he himself drew. According to the memorial stone, the Eastern and Western wisdom teachings, shamanism, meditations and rituals of Buddhist spiritual healing, psychological aspects and research are within the scope of the dissertation from Dr. Mark Hosak.

History and Lineage of Shingon Reiki 真言靈氣の歴史

Shingon Reiki contains three lineages that go back to Usui: in the 2nd level   Usui – Hayashi – Takata – Furumoto – Habben – Furhmann – Hosak; in the Master Level  Usui – Taketomi – Koyama – Doi – Piquer – Hosak and Usui – Wanami – ? – Aoki – Piquer – Hosak  (The Master of Aoki is a member of the Gakkai and would not like to be named here to avoid being excluded).

Since Shingon Reiki was founded in 2005, the Shingon Reiki lineage begins on the basis of the three Usui lineages with Dr. Mark Hosak. In 2013, Dr. Mark Hosak was asked by his students to teach Shingon Reiki up to the master degree. He accepted this request. Meanwhile world wide, there are 13 of Dr. Mark Hosak´s trained masters of Shingon Reiki.

In facts, energetic and content, Shingon Reiki has nothing to do with the lineage of other modern Reiki styles that Dr. Mark Hosak once practised and supplemented by his research  (For more Info: www.markhosak.com/shingon-reiki.html  Can be translated in english on request)

Philosophy of Shingon Reiki 真言靈氣との思想

According to the Buddhist teachings of Usui, Shingon Reiki is about liberating others from their suffering and spreading happiness, completing the spiritual heart, keeping the body healthy, and accepting a life in prosperity. Long-term goals are the development of inner strength, patience, diligence, modesty, gentleness and a smiling heart. Shingon Reiki is a way to achieve an inner peace in the heart.

The contents of Shingon Reiki are taught in a simple way. In addition to training instruction, mastery can be gained over many years of experience, dedication and sincerity.

Reiki and Calligraphy

Reiki and Calligraphy

Reiki and calligraphy

Reiki and calligraphy are closely related. First of all, Reiki comes from Japan and is therefore interwoven or influenced by Japanese culture. The memorial stone by the tomb of Mikao Usui, who describes his life and work with Reiki, is chiseled into the stone by a calligrapher. There are also the Reiki characters (Kanji), which have spread over the years in different forms of calligraphic and artistic design in Reiki circles and thus in the Internet and in print media.

The Reiki characters written with the brush are a calligraphy. Many Reiki practitioners wish to be able to write these letters or other signs with the brush, to learn them or simply to have such a calligraphy. Those who actually take action, and procure brush, ink and paper, will soon realize that writing the Reiki characters with brush and ink often do not lead to the desired results as on a template. Why is that? Calligraphy is an art and a craft that can be learned gradually under the guidance of a qualified teacher.

Spiritual Calligraphy

Usui precepts – calligtaphy by Mark Hosak, 2015 Creative Commons Lizenzvertrag

 

Spiritual calligraphy, as well as traditional Chinese and Japanese calligraphy, is more than just beautiful writing. Both in the lettering and in the calligraphy, as well as in the spiritual calligraphy, is written on the so-called rice paper with the classic brush and ink. So one might think that everyone cooks their soup with the same water.However, that’s not quite true. In Japan, for example, calligraphy is differentiated into the disciplines of the beautiful letters shûji 習字 and the path of the brush shodô 書 道. Every Japanese learns the beautiful writing with brush and ink in school. He learns to write the characters in such a way that they look as if they are Japanese. Each character is pressed into a square form if possible. The order and shape of the strokes is just as important. Actually quite similar to drawing and applying Reiki symbols of the second and third degree (master grade).

Shodô 書道 – the way of the brush

The correct way of writing is more a prerequisite for the way of the brush, whereby the beautiful appearance as the end result is preferred to a special force, which starts from the calligraphy. The individual strokes are trained as if every single stroke is a work of art. Thus, a stroke with the brush is not just left to right. Rather, the brush is literally dipped in the paper and guided in circles and spirals with upward and downward movements, as if one were making a Taichi form with the brush until the single stroke is brought to its perfection, before flowing into the next stroke of the same character.

In order to get into this momentum and to bring this power with brush and ink on the paper, it requires a meditative state of the calligrapher. It becomes clear at this point that the art of calligraphy, or even the way of the brush, is a spiritual method of self-discovery and self-realization with an enormous expressiveness. Even a single character written as a spiritual calligraphy, can exert a magical effect on the viewer. Several characters together make up proverbs or even poetry, whereby not only the content, but also the calligraphy and the context in which this work of art originated play an important role. This in turn is related to the history of calligraphy.

History of calligraphy

Calligraphy was created in China in the course of philosophical and ritual Daoism to create and copy texts and to create talismans and amulets. In Japan, Chinese calligraphy is used both as an art form and for ritual purposes, such as copying Buddhist sutras. About the memorial stone of Mikao Usui at his grave is known that Usui was a Buddhist monk and that he knew about spiritual and occult methods that work with calligraphy. Originally, the Chinese characters handed down to Japan since the sixth century were not developed to write a language but as a pure ritual script.

Calligraphy and Meditation

Any form of preoccupation with calligraphy, from spreading the utensils to rubbing the ink, to writing every single stroke as well as the point, is a meditative act. One sinks fully into the moment and forgets space and time. Through writing one gains deep knowledge of the meaning of the signs in connection with oneself.

It soon becomes apparent that each stroke is a work of art in itself, and that many strokes become signs, and therefrom, texts with profound meaning. It is not so much about simply writing beautiful characters, but rather about transferring the life energy ki 氣 with ink onto paper with the brush. If this succeeds, expressive characters emerge as if they were jumping out of the paper.

The seminar of Spiritual Calligraphy

In the Spiritual Calligraphy Seminar, the basics of using the Four Treasures, i.e. brush, ink, rubbing stone and paper are explained and taught to use meditatively. The rubbing of the ink is also followed by meditative basic exercises with the painting of the circle, which plays a special role in Zen calligraphy. At the same time, the basics of writing are trained in order to be able to write individual characters in the correct order of lines full of life force.

After practicing some simple signs, such as Heart 心, Sun 日 or Moon 月, participants can freely choose their own characters according to their needs. It is possible to choose combined terms such as Aikido, Reiki, Dragon or your own name. The characters to be practiced are then pre-painted by Dr. Mark Hosak, so that they can be copied from this original, as is custom in classical calligraphy lessons in Japan.

The aim of the seminar is, among other things, to calm down the heart via calligraphy, to express the inherent power of the sign and to take home a self-painted beautiful version at the end. Second-degree Reiki practitioners or Reiki masters also get a new sense of how to use the Reiki symbols through the practice of spiritual calligraphy, as they virtually draw a calligraphy in the air. Participants in the Spiritual Calligraphy seminar report time and again that they did not previously expect such an extension of their Reiki skills with the symbols. They believe that only now have they come to understand the meaning of the symbols and truly use their power.

For the seminar ones own utensils can be brought. What is needed and where it can be ordered, will be announced at registration. However, it is not recommended to use most calligraphy sets because the brushes are usually too small.

The calligrapher Dr. Mark Hosak

Dr. Mark Hosak has been working on Chinese and Japanese calligraphy for over 20 years. He studied East Asian Art History and Japanese Studies at the Universities of Heidelberg and Kyoto Daigaku, focusing on calligraphy, symbology and Buddhist ritual art. During many trips and his three-year stay in Japan, he was able to learn a lot about Japanese culture in the fields of calligraphy, Buddhism, healing art and martial arts and to make it easy to understand for the West. Today Dr. Mark Hosak lives in Eberbach near Heidelberg and directs the Shingon Institute Rhein-Neckar, where he teaches traditional Buddhist rituals, as well as shamanic healing and martial arts. This also includes spiritual calligraphy for the healing of one’s own heart / spirit. Writing about the Siddham scripture in rituals of healing, out of which the mental healing symbol developed, Dr. Mark Hosak received his doctorate from the University of Heidelberg.

The five pillars of Reiki

The five pillars of Reiki

Origin of the five pillars of the Reiki method

In the course of the spread of Reiki and the development of several Reiki styles in many countries, it is sometimes difficult to understand what belongs to the original. There should be a common ground approached between all styles of Reiki, where you can recognize their authenticity. These are the five pillars of Reiki. They are the cornerstones of the Usui Reiki healing method.

usui-precepts-calligraphy-mark-hosak

Usui rules of life – calligraphy by Dr. Mark Hosak, 2015Creative Commons Lizenzvertrag

When the Japanese Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki healing method, developed his Reiki method, he let philosophical and practical contents of the secret teachings of Buddhism (mikkyo 密 教), shamanism (Shinto 神道), the shamanic-magical Daoism of the Bergaskets (Shugendo修 験 道) and incorporated the Confucian manners and teachings of the samurai flow into his system. It seems to him to be a particular concern to find himself thru spiritual development with spiritual exercises for his own primeval. With the Reiki method, Usui has created a self-discovery path and self-healing way. Both can be utilized by applying the five pillars of Reiki to both ones self and those in need.

The five pillars of Reiki

Reiki and laying on of hands

Reiki is a power and the spiritual life energy, which is transmitted predominantly over the palms (tenohira 掌) for healing with laying on of hands (teate 手 当). Reikiism by putting one’s hands on the body or holding and moving one’s hands in the aura is the basis for the applications of the Reiki healing method.

Reiki and initiations

In order to bring the Reiki power to flow in humans, it requires the attunements or initiations by an experienced Reiki master. With Mikao Usui there was an attunement that had to be repeated from time to time to maintain the Reiki power. This he called Reiju 靈 授. Literally, Reiju means ‚to receive the spiritual‘.

One of Usui’s students and master, the doctor and officer Chujiro Hayashi then introduced the system of four initiations. These are given in 1st level seminar. These are the traditional four initiations, as taught by Ms. Takata for the spread of Reiki in the West, to sustain the Reiki force for a lifetime.

In the 2nd level Reiki there is then another initiation into the three Reiki symbols and then for the Reiki master’s initiation into the Master symbol.

Reiki Symbols and Mantras

To expand the possibilities, there are Reiki symbols and mantras. These are named differently depending on the historical source. If a symbol has a Buddhist origin, it is called Siddham (symbol) and mantra (spoken tool to complete the heart / mind). These are mostly based on the esoteric or tantric Buddhism of the Shingon School and Tendai School. Mantra and Siddham means in Japanese (shingon 真言). If the origin is found more in Shinto and Shugendo, one speaks of characters (shirushi し る し) and magical spells (jumon 呪 文).

Reiki Meditations and mental exercises

As a Buddhist monk, Usui had emphasized meditation and spiritual/mental exercises, such as breathing techniques, to train the supernatural abilities of ones natural talents.

Reiki and the rules of life

The Reiki rules of life (gokai 五戒) are the philosophical foundation of the Reiki healing method. In particular, it is about five simple sentences, with which one can lead a happy life. They are described as a secret method of inviting happiness and as a spiritual herb or as a spiritual medicine for 10,000 or countless illnesses in body, soul and spirit.
Especially on this day…

do not annoy neither you or others

do not worry
be thankful

take care of your karma

be kind to all living beings

This is followed by the instructions that you should put your hands together in front of your heart morning and evening, that you may direct the enlightenment into your spiritual heart and that you may recite it aloud.

You can learn the five pillars as part of the 1st level Shingon Reiki seminar and all subsequent seminars.

Reiki symposium in honor of Mikao Usui

In 2015, Mikao Usui would be 150 years old. On the occasion of and in his honor, several events took place in 2015. This includes in particular the Reiki symposium in Vienna and Berlin. I was invited to both events and was able to gain many wonderful experiences as a participant and speaker. It’s just a fantastic energy to celebrate Mikao Usui with so many Reiki practitioners.

Reiki Symposium in Vienna

The Reiki Symposium in Vienna had the motto ‚Reiki in the circle of life‘. Based on this, the contents of many lectures were designed. Mostly, several lectures ran in parallel, so that everyone could choose their favorite topic. I will now briefly comment on some of the presentations at the symposium.

The beginning of life

Lecture at the symposium from Dr. Leopold Spindelberger

This lecture was about the origin of the life from the ovum upto birth in connection with Reiki. At the same time science and the humanities came together again, as it once was. This is important, because the separation of the two created mindless science. This was briefly illustrated by dangerous gene experiments and their possibilities. Dr. Leopold Spindelberger believes that the study of a natural science should also include a few semesters in ethics and morality.
 
Below are some notes from the lecture:
  • Reiki is comparable to the essential being, which is invisible and yet scientifically explainable. Just because you can not see it does not mean that it is not there. With Reiki on the skin, the internal organs are reached via the nerves. This is an activation of the self-healing powers, because the surfaces of reflex zones, triger zones and triger points are supplied with Reiki energy and from there the energy is passed on to the corresponding organs.
  • A comparison of the origin of life with the original symbol of Christianity: the fish. Originally it was the fish, then the sacred bone of the pelvis, because from there comes life. From the cross of the sacrum was later linked to back pain to breaking the cross and suffering. The fish is related to the origin of life, because the human embryo still has gills like a fish and later develops these back. In addition, there are two cycles in the womb and two hearts, which later grow into one. Heart and pulmonary circulation is still switched off because of the connection to the mother.
  • Nutrition is the basis for the therapy of Chinese medicine
  • Scientists know only 2% of genes and call the rest junk genes. This is related to the fact that scientists search outside and for example yogis search for answers inside.
  • Einstein and Reiki: The phenomenon of entanglement is an explanation for Reiki distance healing. When everything is connected to everything and something changes somewhere, something changes throughout. Unfortunately, quantum physics is barely integrated into mainstream medicine, although it would be possible and legally obliged to use the latest option.
  • Involution: before something develops, it has to be wrapped up. If you wrap something up, the first point is inside and the last outside. Scientists see only the outside and therefore can not grasp the whole. Here is a connection to the Bible: ‚The spirit was above the water and God said it would be light. Consequently, in development, the human being comes to the core and the origin, and it becomes light. This is also the context that for God 1000 years appear as a day. Accordingly, only two days have passed since Jesus.
  • Anthroposophists divide man into the physical body, the etheric body, the astral body and the ego organization. The astral body is supposed to represent the opposite sex from the time when man was still a hermaphrodite. Therefore, there is no definite male and female. That’s why some people do not feel comfortable in their bodies with their gender. But this is made possible by means of a sex change.
  • Hinayana Buddhism seeks through meditation its own other sexual part in itself as a path to enlightenment.
  • Celibate means unmarried. Sex is allowed. (I interviewed a woman who studied theology, she said that was correct, and that you learn right from the start that as a pastor you can have as much sex as you want, but you can not tell anyone. Female Pastors receive extra salary for a child, so that it pays off for better tax purposes.)
  • Amniotic fluid has a ph value of eight. Therefore, base cosmetics are the most effective.
  • The mother walking brings the embryo to sleep. Until the 32th week the embryo sleeps up to 20 hours a day. Therefore, walking is very helpful.
  • Until the 20th week, the embryo is hairy like a monkey, which then regresses later..
  • From the 30th week, the embryo can feel pain and therefore also respond to Reiki
  • Sugary diet of the mother gives the child / embryo an energy boost. It wakes up and does not sleep enough. That leads to stress. In addition, it gets used to it and therefore would get ADS later.
  • At the 36th week it is then developed and viable.
  • By week 40, a head down move with TCM is possible. Reiki Mental Healing also made a turn in a ten-minute dialogue between mother and child shortly before birth. The child is said to have turned, which immediately averted a Caesarean section.
    „Turn yourself because you don’t want a caesarean section“
  • The more and the sooner one intervenes, the less complicated the birth becomes
  • At birth, it is helpful if the mother as a helper puts the Reiki hands on the Dantien (below the belly button) at birth
  • Homeopathized meteoric iron is said to give the woman Yang energy as an aid to childbirth.
  • If men connect with Yang energy, we can transfer that energy to the woman.
  • Health risks increase for children with cesarean section. With a caesarean section no oxytocin (bonding and love hormone) is distributed. Then it takes longer for mother and child to bond together. At normal birth a lot of oxytocin is released.
  • The Qi (life energy) is between Patrix and Matrix. The Qi comes from the star Asterix.

The whole variety of life energy

LECTURE AT THE SYMPOSIUM FROM Oliver Klatt

In this very insightful presentation, Oliver Klatt, in line with his recent new book title ‚The Healing Power of Life Energy‘, addressed the concepts of life energy in different countries and spiritual traditions.

Here are some examples of life energy

  • Baraka in Islam
  • Prana in Sanskrit in India – Here Akasha is to act on Prana as the origin
  • Shekina is dependent on the divine light that shines from above
  • Qi in China
  • In the Yohoba tradition Asshee (Spiritual Electricity)
  • Awen Druid’s life energy as a streaming spirit
In the further course, it went beyond the definitions of what makes life energy, where it occurs and how it works
 
  • Dion Fortune is supposed to have said that life force preserves all that is. First, a think-form is created (I suppose it is supposed to be a form of thought), which is then filled with life energy, which in turn should be preserved to have a lasting effect.
  • In relics and personal belongings, such as in rings, the owners‘ powers and vital energies are perpetuated, especially when they have been in personal possession for a long time. This also applies to works of art. So a painted picture in a museum can be in better hands than in the living room, if you do not want to get even closer to the charged energy.
  • Every Buddhist teaching is filled with a flow of energy. Buddhas are brought to life in rituals.
  • An energy force lives in the room.
  • Kabbalistic letters radiate energy.
  • The dragon and the snake stand for energy. In China, it includes all animals in water, land and air as representative of all movements

Grateful life – fulfilled life

LECTURE AT THE SYMPOSIUM FROM Brother david

Brother David has especially touched me. He is about 90 years old, but looks externally and mentally more likely 30 to 40 years younger. This seems to be the result of a grateful and fulfilled life.
 
Here are some notes from the lecture:
 
  • Being thankful and saying thanks are two different things.
  • A given moment is the greatest and most precious gift. You can not buy it. Brother David is pleased at the moment looking at the burning candle on the table in front of him
  • Happiness is not stable. Joy can always be there.
  • Even if something unpleasant happens, you may be grateful for the opportunity
  • Offers to rejoice are numerous and opportunities to learn and grow at the same time. So you should take the opportunity to protest. This led  brother David to know that his protest with others prevented an atomic bombing on Vietnam.
  • The moment gives possibilities and the power for realization
  • Who is grateful, when I’m grateful?
  • Some live upwards from the eyebrows and forget that they have a body. Who has the body? That is itself, which is above space and time. With the body I am limited. The body limits the self in space and time. The self is not bound and yet bound. Every one of myself is unique.
  • I myself means fullness of life.
  • Now, and not at the time when I’m not myself.
  • Where is this now? The time is in the now.
  • When asked if that is not hair-splitting, the answer is that you can split a hair as long as you have one.
  • Time runs out and the now stays now
  • With the now one comes to the life energy
  • How should one activate ones self with gratitude?
    • It is a simple method but not easy – Stop and pause first – When we get carried away by time, you are a slave to time.To break this, you have to pause!
    • Just pause for a moment when you start something. Then everything that one carries on becomes different. If you insert a key, pause.
    • Then look for the opportunity with all your senses
    • Look at the flower, smell it, feel it
    • The moment gives something and then let energy flow through it.
  • The Self and the Holy Spirit – We are one with the divine reality. The self was given a name. Paul says I do not live the Christ in me. The Holy Spirit is the Dynamic there.
  • In Buddhism, the origin of nothingness from which everything comes. The leap from nothing to abundance.
  • All that exists is the word in the sense that it appeals to me. I can also answer and that’s then the ego.
  • Spirit of understanding through doing and doing in love and saying yes to life is the Holy Spirit. This brings us into contact with the divine secret.
  • It can not conceive or be comprehended conceptually, but we can understand it by occupying ourselves or dealing with it. An image for understanding is music, because you can not understand much about it.
  • Concepts make us touched and wise. Then the life energy flows through us, and what drives us is the Holy Spirit.
  • Why do you talk about souls? I have countless ones. All of them has one thing in common. What makes me as me, is the soul.
  • That God is separated from us is a mistake. We live in God – Pantheism: Everything is God – Yes, but God goes beyond everything. This includes the relationship to all that exists
  • They are in us and God is in us and we are in God. It is like a bowl of seawater and the bowl is at the same time in the seawater. The sea goes beyond everything. The utopians speak of sparks. The spark is the beginning.
  • Fatigue teaches patience, when you become tired by doing the exercises.
  • What is a trust? Trust signifies faith. The opposite is a fear. It helps to make a distinction between anxiety and fear. Anxiety is inevitable in life. Comes from angustia narrowness. We come through a narrow natal canal. There we still have the talent to take part instinctively. Anxiety is positioning onesself against it. Through narrowness one comes into a new expanse. The tighter it is, the more expansive it gets.
  • Courage can only be had when one is afraid, because one thinks one can get through when things get tight. Fear is an opportunity for our trust in and on life.
  • Almost everyone has a fear of death. Hardly anyone is impassive. Death is a narrowness into a new life as in a new birth.
  • What is grace? Life is grace. Grace is a gift. It is the same word. Everything is a gift. That’s the power to make something out of it. The gift gives the power to make something out of it.
  • A graceful dancer lets go of everything, so that only the dance remains and one no longer thinks about how one looks doing it. If you are the way you are, you are gifted. Grace can be seen as a force that gives us life together with the opportunity to use it. 90% of the time is the opportunity to enjoy something. We sleep and only wake up first when something unpleasant happens
  • Gratitude is due only to the Creator.
  • Meaning of resigning a church: They are in the same water but not in the same channel. The channel is unimportant. It’s the flow, which is important.
  • Spirituality signifies breath of life and liveliness comes from spiritus.
  • Will the church become spiritual again? Church is also called institution. If the group gets too big, it has to become institutionalized. Institute is founded for a purpose. If you forget the purpose, it becomes self-purpose. The members have to guide the institution back to the original idea.
  • Out of fear rises, avarice, greed, power, violence. It must be replaced by cooperation and sharing. Living water also comes from rusty pipes.

The Usui rules of life in the circle of life

LECTURE AT THE SYMPOSIUM from Mark Hosak

A second day at the symposium gave me the honor of giving a lecture on the Usui rules of life in the circle of life. I was looking forward to it for a long time because I was able to present some new translations there: memorial stone, calligraphy and the instructions of the Meiji-Tennô to the people, which are mentioned on the memorial stone.
The rules of life have to do with the circle of life, because in Usui’s life many circles closed, which led him finally to the Kurama mountain to receive there on the mountain peak Reiki energy. This is like the falling of a stone into a lake whose waves are drawing ever wider circles around it.
That is how Mikao Usui brought Reiki from the mountain and passed it on, so that until today it did not stop to draw new circles around the world. I describe the exact contents of the lecture in a separate article about the Usui rules of life and the Meiji-Tenno.
