Dr Mikao Usui rediscovered Reiki in the early 1900's, during a period of meditation on the Kurama mountains. He discovered that he had the ability to heal, without depleting his own energy.
He found that the healing techniques worked well on various ailments and in April 1922 he opened his first school/clinic in Harajuku Tokyo. His school/clinic was formed not just for the spiritual teachings but it was also a way for people to obtain healing. The Usui teachings included teaching people how to heal themselves (a very central point still in Reiki of today). Healing would be given to them, then they were taught how to heal themselves.
Dr Usui found that people would often return to him after they had been healed - either with a reoccurrence of the original problem, or a similar issue. He recognised the important connection between our way of thinking, or state of mind, and our physical health. He came up with the Reiki principles (Gokai) in order to help people think healthily, creating a healthier mind and body for themselves.
It is reported that he had taught his system of healing to well over 2000 persons, and around 15 teachers (now called Reiki Masters). One of these people was Dr Hayashi.
Dr Hayashi had been a Naval Doctor and learnt Reiki from Usui Sensei in 1925. Following his training with Usui, he started a clinic in Tokyoand expanded on Usui's healing methods. It is believed that he created the hand position system which concentrated on the head and torso, covering the body's major energy centres.
Dr Hayashi compiled a manual on how to use the hand positions for certain ailments, which may have been give to his students. He also initiated around 15 Reiki Masters, including Mrs Takata
In the mid 1930's Mrs Takata had travelled back to Japan and was suffering from poor health. She heard of Dr Hayashi's clinic which offered an alternative treatment for illness. She attended his clinic and within months of receiving Reiki treatments was completely healed.
She wished to learn Reiki and after a years training received First Degree Reiki (Shoden) in early 1936, then before returning to Hawaii in 1937 she received Second Degree Reiki (Okuden).
Mrs Takata established the first Reiki clinic in the West, in Hawaii, with the help of Dr Hayashi. She was initiated as a Reiki Master in 1938, yet did not initiate any Reiki Masters until the 1970's. It is believed that she initiated 22 Reiki Masters.
Christine and Kevin Corr first taught Angelic Reiki in Egypt in February 2006.. They have been initiated into Reiki Mastership in both the Usui and Shamballa lineages. The power of these two lineages, which is the combined healing power of all the Masters of each of these lineages, is now combined with the Angelic Vibration through Archangel Metatron and her own spiritual lineage to create Angelic Reiki.
What is Angelic Reiki?
It is the absolute joy of working hand in hand with the Angelic Kingdom of Light to bring one of the highest forms of healing to individuals, groups and the planet. Angels are beings who exist outside the different dimensions as we know them. They are the Master Programmers of the Main Programme we know as the Universe. Through their guidance, and the healing art of Angelic Reiki, we can positively influence the creative energy systems of any individual or group, according to Divine Will. This could be on a physical, emotional or mental level.
Joanna trained as a Tera-Mai ™ Seichem and Reiki Master in December 1999, followed by further training beyond the Mastery Level, as well as additional training in Tera-Mai ™ Cartouche Mastery, this being a system based on Murry Hope's Cartouche Divination kit and involving attunements into 24 Egyptian symbols. In 2002, having taught the excellent Tera-Mai ™ Seichem system for a few years, Joanna felt compelled to immerse herself in some further background studies on Egyptian philosophies, as these seemed lacking in the material supplied. What started as a supplementary exercise, quickly uncovered a host of fascinating doctrines and symbols which were not embraced by the existing system, leading her to consider the development of an altogether new system. Furthermore, Joanna's older sister - Angela McGerr - was now established as an expert in Essene Angelology; this being the integration of daily commune with named angels as advocated by an ancient healing community living around the Dead Sea about 2,000 years ago and therefore contemporary with Jesus Christ. Involving the named angels, identified by the Essenes, as the guardians of the elements and other healing attributes, seemed like another potential enhancement, as well as incorporating other modalities from Joanna's growing skillbase, such as sound vibration and crystal energies.
Rays of touch healing bring together the elemental energies in a non-intrusive, but powerful healing combination. Reiki energy is derived predominantly from the Earth element, whilst Reyad Sekh Em combines the Earth energy with the healing energies of Water, Fire, Air and Ether (Spirit). Reiki and Sekh Em may be used for both self-help and to heal others. Powerful aids to personal growth they work on a spiritual, emotional, mental and physical level. Energy is introduced into the energy field (or aura) around the recipient and is absorbed into the body via the chakras. Joanna's own version of Reyad Sekh Em Egyptian Alchemy Healing also brings in the fifth element (Quintessence, ether or spirit) and utilises colour, sound vibration, crystalline and elemental angelic energies. She has also developed her own unique initiations for this ultra high vibrational healing system.
