Usui Reiki

Reiki is an ancient energy technique brought to the surface towards the end of the 19th century inJapanby Dr Mikao Usui.

It is a treatment which transmits the cosmic vital energy with the soft touch of our hands to the receiver. Reiki transforms us into channels of light and gives us the opportunity to spread love, thus bringing health, balance and harmony in our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body.

Reiki helps us relax and comply with the light within and around us. It gives us a chance to awaken the power of self-medication in ourselves and to spread the Light that the universe so generously giving us, and to our fellow human beings.

Mrs. Shakila Ioanna Brati is a Reiki Master. She offers education of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade, individually or in small groups, as well as therapeutic sessions.


When Usui was asked the definition of reiki, his answer was this:

Shoufuku no hihoo: The secret method to invite happiness.

Manbyo no ley-yaku: The spiritual medicine for every illness (of the body and mind).

Kyo dake wa: Only for today

1. Ikaru- na: Do not be angry. It is not about not feeling anger, but rather not wasting our energy unnecessarily.

2. Shinpai su-na: Do not worry. Have trust.

3. Kansha shite: Be grateful.

4. Gyo hage me: Work hard with yourself. Be present in all situations. Be honest.

5. Hito ni shinsetsu ni: Be nice to your fellow human beings. Compassion, creative energy.

Asa huu rest shite, kokoro ni nenji, kuchi ni tonaeyo: Sit in the gassho position in the morning and the afternoon and repeat the above in your heart

Shin shin Kaizen, Usui Reiki Ryoho: For the improvement of body and soul, Usui Reiki Ryoho.

Usui Reiki

Anything that lives, according to the energy that moves through it, regardless of the names the various cultures call it (ki - chi - prana - orgone etc.)

Each moves in its own energy anatomy, which ultimately exists, is mutually supportive and exchanges information through the chakra (7 basic - 21 secondary and 49 secondary of the secondary), the Meridians (12 basic channels, 12 zen, 2 central and paradoxical), as well as the central energy channel (sushumna, ida and pingala), which have thousands of ramifications into the body, the nadis.

All of these are surrounded by the field of the aura, which consists of the ethereal, the vital, the astral or emotional, the mental and the spiritual. All of these forms of energy are affected by our negative feelings and thoughts or negative thought forms of other people that adhere to our aura, as well as the negative karma that our family or even our race might have. Also, vibrations that may be present in the room we are using (computer, air pollution, etc.), and poor use of our vital energy (late nights out, poor nutrition, etc.)

Reiki has the ability to penetrate and nourish all these energy systems, plus our natural body, with a sweet type of energy, but also fully dynamic at the same time. It therefore transubstantiates the negative energy in and around our body into a more refined substance. It rids the body of toxins, whether they’re energy toxins or natural. It helps with psychosomatic problems (stress, tension, insomnia, etc.) and activates self-medication. It increases our vitality, since it releases blocked energy and thus allows it to move fluidly.

Reiki in its entirety is to man a deep support towards our efforts to expand our energy, as well as our support in life.

It makes us feel safe, since we feel that there is always an open channel of communication with the universe.

  • Reiki adapts to the needs of the person on the receiving end, either you or someone else. It is perfectly safe in any case, but is not a substitute for medical treatments.
  • Reiki means letting the cosmic energy flow. It works best when you get out of its way. You do not need to do anything. Rest your hands in a similar position as the one where you put your hands on your knees.
  • If possible, sessions should be given during three or four consecutive days. If you want to continue the sessions, arrange for three per week.
  • Plants: embrace the pot with your hands and allow the energy to flow. You can do the same with the watering can and thus charge the water before watering the plants.
  • Animals: place your hands just behind the animal's ears. Carry on until the animal doesn’t want you touch it anymore. Until it wants to leave. Cats and dogs in general love reiki. Fish: Touch the walls of the aquarium with your hands.
  • Crystals: take the crystal in your hand and charge by projecting the energy you want it to have.
  • Food: You can charge food or drinks just by holding them and letting the energy flow. This often influences the flavour as well. The tap water, for example, tastes better when it’s charged.
  • Medicines: Keep the product in your hands for a few minutes before you drink.
  • Be creative. You can charge things, such as computers or even your car battery.
