- Threshold Reiki Anecdote -
This page is one of a series where I share a personal experience or anecdote related to my Reiki work.  The pages are also intended to give you some "food for thought" and add to your overall Reiki knowledge base.  While the experience has been my own, I feel that you should decide for yourself how much (if any) of the content has any usefulness to your own Reiki work.

 Distant Attunements With Doi and Tanaka

I've shared parts of this anecdote in some of my articles but I realised I never put it all together.  So here it is.

Since Hiroshi Doi announced in early 2004 that his Gendai Reiki no longer included distant attunements (due to problems with a certain European teacher), it is not well known that at one time he was willing to do distant attunement exchanges. 

in July 1998, Andrew Bowling of the UK and Tom Rigler of the USA independently were exchanging emails with Yukio Miura of Japan. and also with me here in Canada.   Then, at the same time, Tom and Andy both introduced me to Yukio and the 4 of us began a round-robin of sharing Reiki information and distant attunements.  What was of the greatest interest to us was Yukio's information about a Japanese Reiki Master named Hiroshi Doi, a Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai member, who had recently published a Reiki book called "Iyashino Gendai Reiki Hi" - "Modern Reiki Method For Healing."

Yukio translated some of Mr. Doi's book, which he shared, (click here) and began acting as a go between for us and Mr. Doi.  He decided to take Shinpiden and Gokuikaiden (highest level) training with Doi and this gave us more insight.  At the time I was a Tera-MaiTM Reiki master and I shared these attunements with Yukio, via the distant process, one day when he was visiting Kurama Yama.  Because he had enjoyed this experience, through Yukio I offered the same attunements to Mr. Doi.  Doi-san accepted, providing I would also send them to his friend Mr. Tanaka, a healer who uses over 30 different energies in his work. (I suppose this was Doi's way of checking me out.)  I agreed and in September 1998 I made the exchange with them using distant attunements.

At Doi's request I sent the 3 levels of Tera-Mai Reiki to each of them one evening. They both reported that their reception of these was impressive. Through Yukio Doi-san said that he had just returned to Ashiya City from a long train ride from Tokyo (presumably at a URR Gakkai meeting.) While he was tired, he sat down to receive the attunements, and found that the next morning, with little sleep, he was up early, feeling unusually very refreshed.  Tanaka-san also reported a favourable experience.

In return, before going to bed Doi-sensei sent me Gendai Reiju and an attunement to the 4th Reiki symbol energy; Tanaka-san sent an energy he uses on his healing work. While Doi-sensei's energies felt good, I really took notice of Tanaka-san's.  Strangely, it actually made me feel a bit nauseous.   I immediately emailed Yukio to share my feedback, and to ask him to find out what energy Tanaka-san had sent me. 

Later that day Yukio replied that Tanaka-san had sent an energy he uses with his cancer patients!   This really surprised me,  and then it concerned me as I wondered if Tanaka-san felt I had cancer.   I didn't think so, in fact I was pretty sure I didn't.  But I was a bit confused.

It was to be a year later when I was invited to present at the URRI 2000 conference in Kyoto, before I would get my answer from Tanaka-san.  On the Friday evening before the conference a special reception was held to celebrate Mr. Doi's birthday.  During the reception I was introduced to Mr. Tanaka.

A Helpful Thought for Your Journey
"Learning how to stay calm and centered in your own energy while experiencing the energies, thoughts,
and feelings of the people around you might be called "being transparent." When you are transparent,
you can comfortably be with many different kinds of people. You can learn to enjoy what is positive a
bout them and find ways to go even higher when you are around energies that are not as harmonious
as your own.
" From "Spiritual Growth: Being Your Higher Self" by Sanaya Roman.
