have passed to the west.
Most techniques taught in the west
for every student. In traditional Japanese Reiki many

Therefore only a few chosen Japanese were allowed to learn high level
by Usui Sensei. There are three main areas.

make the use of Reiki very wide. Especially the Master Symbol, which in
the west is regarded as holy as it is thought to bring down divine
The symbols are very powerful and have their own powers. However, they
are just symbols, not divine or something sacred. Their use is to
to the High Universal Vibrations.
When your senses rise high enough
or feel the vibrations and you yourself are vibrating with the
Reiki energy, you no longer need to use the symbols. You must not
yourself to believe that the symbols alone have the powers and rely
on symbols. You end up worshipping only the images, not reality,
You try to move away from drawing
the symbols when you have developed the ability to use the symbols well
enough. In that sense you can connect to the Great Universal Vibrations
by thought or mind.

Usui Sensei (teacher) divided his
into 6 ranks.
the sixth rank.
(see this page for Shoden Techniues of URR old Gakkai)
3rd rank was Okuden.
He set his rank at 2nd
and no one had the 1st rank.
The reason Usui Sensei remained 2nd
rank was that someday amongst his pupils, someone might reach beyond
level, he hoped. This gesture was to encourage his pupils to work
hard in many dimensions, especially in spiritual growth. He has taught
the righteous way of attitude in life.
