Distant Attunements With Doi and Tanaka
parts of this anecdote in some of my articles but I realised I never
put it all together. So here it is.
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."
translated some of Mr. Doi's book,
which he shared, (click here) and
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
for the rest of this article.
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.
