Wow.... it still amazes me when I feel energy like this.  I've only been attuned to Reiki I and II for a year and a half, and still feel that I'm at that exploratory level.  And sometimes I wonder if what I'm feeling is "real" or if other people feel it too.  I appreciate your writing and the others on the list in validating my experiences. 

When I looked at the photo,  I felt immediately and strongly the feeling I identify as reiki, with immediate visualization (the kind I get when I do distance Reiki).  All very cool and much needed at this time in my life.  My father passed away 2 weeks ago, and I have  expereinced a lot of loss in the past year - my Mom passed away just over a year ago, my ex just 3 month ago, and an abrupt ending to a new relationship.  Although I've been doing Reiki on myself and some friends and family, it was as if I couldn't feel it like I was able to before.  Looking at this now has helped renewed that energy for me.  Its on my favorite places menu now!

I always like it when the universe gives you what you need unexpectedly.  Thanks for providing the venue.

This was my first time experimenting with reiki and I must say it was a very pleasant experience.  While concentrating on the picture of Usui, I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and calm running through my body. I focused for about 10 minutes and by the end of it, I was so relaxed...it
was like coming out of a spa.  I also occasionally saw a white aura around his picture.  I will definitely make this a ritual!!! Thanks again

I was attuned to level one in July 01 - but self - treatments have become difficult. This picture has just given me a real boost - my crown became very heavy as though there was a great force of warm energy going in, quite powerful. Thanks, I had been struggling but this may give me the boost I needed. I will be back

Thank you so much for this wonderful gift!!
I have been sad lately as many of my immediate family died in October and November..
looking at this page made me smile and ...laugh out loud..(ok not a guffaw but a gentle chuckle)...I felt tingling in my hands...
the soft gentleness of Usui his kind demeanor was contagious

Just wanted to say Thank You for having such an excellent site. While I was receiving my atonement I saw a bright yellow ball, the sun would be a good example, with rings radiating out in circular patterns, similar to a stone dropped in water, the ripple effect. In the middle of the sun was a snake like figure, that was hollow in the middle that contained different colored balls. I felt a warm sensation, my hands were extremely warm and tingling.
Again, Thank You!

I have visited your web page before but it has never affected me like this.  I sat and gazed at sensei and as I did I felt golden energy come down through my crown.  It felt hot on my head and strong as if a furnace was blowing on me.  I then closed my eyes and the heat shifted to my third eye and was very hot.  It seemed to pierce right through 
my head.  As my eyes were closed I also heard a soprano type sound that almost sounded like singing.  It lasted throughout the empowerment.  It was wonderful and quite moving.  As I now feel my body, my heart, crown, third eye, and hands feel burning hot.  Thank you so much.  I don't suppose you could tell me what that sound was.  Most of my metaphysical experience has been self taught.  thank you. Marty

Hello, I just sent you an e-mail about reiju gift.  I just performed a reiki meditation and find that the energy I now am using seems to be a lot hotter but lighter.  Very hot on my crown chakra.  It's beam coming in to my crown chakra seems to be more concentrated.  I am a Reiki master from the Rand lineage and am wondering what degree was 
that attunement because the energy feels much different.  I can feel the energy actually moving through my whole body now and when I close my eyes it isn't black anymore it is bright light.  Can you give me any information as to what has happened?  Thank you so much.  Marty

I have been visiting the Reiki Threshold site frequently in order to experience the Reiju energy with the picture of Dr. Usui. It has always been an empowering time and each time I leave reluctantly, though grateful for the experience.

Yesterday at work, however, I was called away from my computer during my visit with Sensei and did not have the opportunity to return to close the site or to turn off the computer. What a surprise greeted me this morning!

The energy in the room was palpable from the moment I opened the door. When I actually sat in my desk chair, the energy was so strong that I felt it in every cell of my body. Now, four hours later, it still is as strong as ever! If it were possible to overdose on Reiki energy, I would be a prime candidate. Talk about a natural high!

You might not want to publish this letter or you will have people all over the world filling their homes, offices, schools with Reiki energy. Then again, that's  a good thing, isn't it?!

Thanks for providing me with the means for this delightful "accident!"

Dear Richard;
I received my Reiki Level One this Samhain (Oct 31, 2001) from a friend. Since then I have felt a great deal of frustration both about it and about other gifts I have. People tell me my words have a great deal of power to help them and change their perspective and yet I am endlessly frustrated by my own flaws and my inability to heal my own wounds, even when I follow my own advice. I counsel and care for a number of people. I am also a writer and poet who struggles constantly with my imperfections in my craft. 
The instant I turned to the Reiju Gift page, I began to cry and I felt a tingling in my arms, which are often very painful from the hours I spend writing and my fibromyalgia. I felt a great sense of being loved and understood, as though Sensei reached out and touched me to tell me that he understood that it was not easy to do what I was trying to do, to heal people. I felt totally accepted and aware that my flaws were part of my gifts, and forgiven for what I feel are weaknesses in my myself.
I have always been hyper-aware of energies over the internet, even to the point that I can tell a person's heritage/ancestry without knowing their name or location. My Tarot readings done for people over the Net are very accurate. We KNOW that energy travels over the Net because that's how this letter will get to you. The Reiju Gift in that picture of Sensei was very powerful for me and I thank you for it.
Sincerely, V.A. W

Hello Rick:
I thought I would check out the site for updates....wow! It is fantastic. Your work has really grown and I am happy for you.
As I sat for the empowerment, I felt the warm tingly energy going through my hands, up my arms and centering in my heart. I saw it as a bright, white light. Merle was sitting in the living room (not aware of what I was doing hee hee!) and I put my hand his way. I sensed the bright white light going down the hall to where he was. I saw the energy touch him and come back to me and then back up to the ceiling and higher. The energy was focused in my heart area. I recently went through some sorrowful experiences as two dear ones in my life passed on suddenly. This felt very healing for me today to receive this! So wonderful, thanks again for this great gift.
I hope all is well with you and your family.
Blessings back to you,

I have, a week ago, finished a Reiki I.  However, during my attunements and while sitting&nbsp;&nbsp;quietly in front of the photo you have put on the web, I am sorry to say I felt nothing.&nbsp; The Master who attuned me did however confirm that I was in fact attuned with Reiki for the rest of my life.&nbsp; It is just a pity that I did not feel anything.

Wow! Ok, first i was reading the page and clicked on the reiki treatment while reading. The energy was very strong. It felt great
Then I found the attunement, and perhaps should not have gone there, because I have had my first attunement and second, and will receive the 3rd and 4th tonight, but found myself there anyway. Interestingly it was very different, not high energy at all, very calm and peaceful, and i felt a coolness at the forhead, heart and throat. Also the tugging to the left at my heart. I did proceed to the self treatment, because, hehe, I was supposed to practice that today anyway. Thank you. I have passed a link to your site on to a friend of mine who lives in Texas and cannot find a reiki master near her.
Blessings to you.

Date: Sat, 20 Oct 2001 02:32:47 -0700

Dear Rick... 
I wrote you a month ago, about the gift I received, after viewing the picture of Sensei.. 
Forgive this length, but I had a miracle is all I can call it this night, and must share it, as Sensei made me promise I would..My logic tells me I must have imagined hearing him, yet I case I did not, I promised I would write this letter in return for the miracle I received this night, because Of your web site.. 

Tonight something even greater happened, and I promised Sensei.. I would write and thank you and the group, for what happened through your web site..he said it was my payment for the gift , I received this night to tell you, the web site is important ..I felt it so clear in my mind..That it will touch others across the country, to keep up the good work..I felt abit foolish, saying this, but I promised..and I will humble myself, forget my fears and do it.. 

This night I had a pain attack, I have these for years now, periodic, they just come unexpected out of the blue...They just found in a Ct scan,cysts they found on my ovaries and liver, but especially my liver, with a rather large one on the dome..which may be the cause they do not know.. 

I would get recurrent pain attacks, that are so bad, I end up in the emergency room..given strong narcotics, both for the severe non-stop retching of bile, that occurs, and the pain that is unbearable..that scare me each time, receiving these narcotics, and sometimes takes three shots to stop it, it is so bad.. 
It is going through hell literally each time..This night as the cycle of pain and vomiting started, I asked Quan Yin for the strength to walk down to my a friends house, that lives in the same complex as I do, she is a Reiki one student, and very doubtful of her healing gifts...but I was led to do it.. 

I was afraid, and knew we were heading for the hospital as usually..it is so hard to focus Reiki as I am a Reiki two, but the pain is so great, one cannot focus..it seems.. 
As I made it to her door, doubled over in pain..Something moved me, for she was not confident to do Reiki for me as a only a Reiki one, I told her to go to her computer and pull up your site which I recently sent her...and go to the picture of Sensei..I felt led to tell her that.. 
Sensei, as I laid on the floor, doubled in pain..she first went to the gift, and I saw Sensei, behind her making the symbols over her head, and then blowing on them..he then told her to click on the group picture, and connect with their energy, and he would use her as a vessel, between us.. 

I heard him so clear, this is never happened..I was in so much pain I did not doubt, for we had drawn circle with sage, and I felt in a sacred place..to not question with my logic and flow, I was in to much pain, and afraid to fight... 
I saw him standing behind her as I lay on the floor in pain, as soon as she shuddered a few times.. I felt Sensei hands on my liver, a cool energy, as Susan told me she felt, the groups energy tingling through her hands... 
Immediately my pain left..You must understand I have never come out of one of these attacks, without that horrible visit to emergency, and the narcotics, I hate receiving, they cannot pin down if the cysts on my liver are causing the pain...or what.. 

I felt the coolness spread thru my whole abdomen, a coolness, all the way to my ovaries also...The nausea and vomiting stopped..I saw Sensei make symbols over my liver, and holding it in his hands in my minds eye, and blowing on it...my body became calm... 
Susan stayed in front of the computer, with her hands on the group, feeling in awe, she told me after,she doubted her gifts.. 

I know this letter was long, but I was told my payment to for this healing, was to write this letter.. 
I then went to the computer, weak, but free from pain..I did Gosso, thanked Sensei, and all.. 

I am so grateful, for your website I did not know Sensei could do that, he said there is no distance, I heard that so strongly.. 
Did I really hear Sensei, does he speak with us, in times of emergencies like this? 

Here I am in the states, although my Pepere and Memere were from Canada and came to the states after their marriage..I have had a strong connection with Canada, its my roots, and I am not surprised I was brought to your web site, I have been to many Reiki sites, but nothing like I have felt at yours...I connected immediately, and I don't connect easily... 

I do not know how to thank you for your site, my words truly fail, what I am feeling now...for the energy you have contained there, but Sensei told me it is a good thing and with Reiki there is no distance..My imagination tells me I only thought I heard him.. 
But I had a miracle this night, that's all I know..and tears roll down my face, for you do not know the hell I endure, with these attacks.. 
Sensei said Reiki can heal me...to continue my daily Reiki healings on self..I will.. 
If your group would remember me.. I would appreciate, it.. 

I wish I could do something more, this thanks, and passing on the message as I told Sensei I would share my gratitude, and how important your site, your energy, and the obvious love I feel from your group.....doesn't seem enough... 

Thank you, for being here..I believe I got a miracle this night, for I dared to believe and allow, as Susan did, in allowing herself to be a vessel...You will never know how grateful I am, that this night, I was touched, and did not go to the hospital per usual... 

I cannot seem to say enough..Forgive the length, but I am so touched..I had to say thank you..your Reiki group..and to Sensei for being there for me.. 
Much gratitude, and universal love..Rick.. 
osada..it is good..

To: <reiki@threshold.ca>

Thank you Rick, 
I am writing to thank you for a healing a done on my friend KLynn, through your web site. I am a level 1 Reiki student, and KLynn is a level 2 Reiki student. Last night she came to my house doubled up in pain from some kind of attack in her body. In the past I have had to accompany her to the hospital, and wait for her to recover. Its been horrible, and scary to have to watch her go through the pain she goes through with these attacks. I have never seen anyone in such immense pain, as she has when she goes through these attacks. 

I also get afraid that something's going to happened, and she will pass on. One time I had to shake her to make sure she was alright. The doctors had given her so much medication. Thank goodness KLynn was just feel the effects of the medicine, but it was upsetting, because she seemed to be so out of it. 

Last night KLynn came to my door doubled over, not wanting to go back to the hospital, which is understandable. She stated that she wished that I had had Reiki 2 training, so I could do a healing on her. Earlier this month she had sent me your healing web site, I doubt my own ability to do Reiki, so I hadn't been there yet. She asked me to access your page on my puter, and I did. 

She first brought up Sinsei's picture, and I stared at it still doubting if this was really happening. It was interesting though because I was feeling this very safe air blowing on the back of my neck. She reminded me that Sinsei was doing an atonement, so I could be the channel for the healing. 

She brought up the picture of your Reike circle, and I placed my hands over their picture. With both Sensei's and the Healing circles, pictures I felt a very tingly, light, white energy coming from them. She laid down on the ground, and I continued to hold my hands over the picture. KLynn, and I were talking about all the different symbols that were coming up in our minds eyes. I was standing behind Sinsei, and he gently told me that if I wanted to learn I need to be on the other side of her not him, OOPS. 

It was very interesting to watch what was happening. He took different organs out, held them in his hands, blow in them, and talk to them. I was watched him making different symbols over them, and it was really interesting to witness. 

Within 2 hours she out of pain, and happily excited at what had just taken place. She didn't need to go to the hospital. It was amazing to witness this healing, and the power of Sensie, as well as your group. Wow! 

My childhood background brings up a lot of issues about whether I am a safe person, or not. I'm afraid that if I get to close to anybody I will hurt them even though I refuse to behave in that manner. I haven't taken Reiki 2 because of this fear. I'm afraid I might use my abilities in a harmful manner, so I deny them. Last night when I was the channel for the healing I was really afraid I was going to hurt to her. It was hard to step out of the way, and allow the healing to take place. It did take place, I was the channel, and she was out of pain which I am extremely thankful for. I haven't ever had opportunity to be a part of something that was so healing for someone else. Wow! 

Sensei, has asked me to write a thank you letter to you and your healing circle, telling what I witnessed. KLynn has talked to me since then, and has informed me that you have offered to give both of us an attainment for allowing this healing to take place. I would like that, and I feel I am in need of it also. 

Thank you for being here for my friend, and the healing that has taken place in her life. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you, as well Sensei, and your group. 
Thank you.

I want to thank you for a wonderful experience. This is the first time I tried looking at your picture of Sensei. I am just learning about Reiki and am very interested in the whole process of healing by touching. I want to learn more. The picture gave me a calm feeling. I felt my hands warm. I have a cold and sore throat so I tried the hands around my throat while looking at the picture. Then I tried the hands on my head and back of head. 
I found instant relief from sore throat pain and my head felt lighter. I feel a sense of peace. 
Looking at the picture - it seemed to move closer and farther and it glowed from lighter to darker. He seemed to smile and I saw a white light around his head on and off. He seemed to be calling to me. At first I was a bit alarmed with the sensations but then I felt at ease with the warmth. He seemed like an old friend and very caring.
I am tired right now but I will return often. Hopefully I can afford a Reiki training some day soon.

I felt it !
BTW, I already attuned for 2nd class of reiki, and when I focused on Sensei, i felt the energy around my body, from my crown to the bottom...
That was a great experience for me, and make more believe that Reiki can do 'something' for my life.
I'll be back soon to your page, to get another reattunement from the Sensei.
Thank you Richard...

I briefly prepared myself before viewing the picture. As the picture opened the energy in the room was transformed. A wave of warmth slowly came over everything. It reached my crown and began to fill my bodies. As the warmth reached my extremities all of my hairs began to stand on end. This was not my first attunement. Afterwards I decided to view the picture again.

I had received Reiki I and II attunements in the early 90's, was very active for awhile, participating in Reiki circles, and even though I know the attunements are for life, I had a great loss in my life and withdrew for a long while, years..as a matter of fact, grief does strange things to us.. 
I felt a need to receive and feel the Reiki attunement again, as I face a healing crisis, and just voiced that to my inner teachers only recently..was led here to this site by my spiritual teacher most certainly this day.....As I face a potentianally serious illness, I needed that alignment I felt to begin again..As I looked upon the picture, I felt the energy instantly, then three times, a electrical like surge came down thru my crown charka and shook thru my entire body, that made me expel my breath sharply..why three times I do not know..My hands are tingling as I type.. 
Thank you for making this available...I did not expect the effect that came, then again..I have learned, to always expect the unexpected, especially in these trying times... 
Again..I thank the Reiki masters,that led you to do this, for your openness and gift, of allowing, and my teachers for bringing me here... 
Osada...it is good....KLynn
