Usui Reiki development does not take place automatically. This unique healing modality respects our free will and does not force it on us, but if we seek it and intend it, and use Reiki for this purpose, then we will be guided into a greater healing experience.

Reiki can guide us in ways to make its healing power more beneficial and to heal more deeply. And at the same time, it is possible that it will guide us to other healing techniques that are exactly right for us to use in addition to it. We may also receive guidance about changes we need to make in our lives, which then require us to take action. This can seem quite daunting at first as no one really likes change as it takes us out of a comfort zone. But your ability to make decisions will improve with the reiki energy, making it very easy to decide exactly what you need, who to associate with, where to work, etc. and this could result in an entirely new direction for you.

When you are involved in the healing process, a good way to determine your progress is to use your outer world as an indication of your inner development. This works because we manifest our entire experience through our thoughts and intentions - both conscious and unconscious. When we experience something in our lives, it is because some part of our being has created it. When we accept this idea, and take complete responsibility for what takes place in our lives, we enter a very powerful place. We can then change the things that are not healthy and improve every aspect of our lives.

If your outer world contains positive experiences, and we are enjoying our lives, this means that our inner world is in a similar state. The reverse is also true, so when we experience painful things or are disappointed or experience things that foster fear, worry or doubt, this is also because some part of our inner being is out of balance and needs healing. If something unpleasant takes place in your life, rather than blaming something or someone, we must direct our attention inwards and look for the part of us that has created this unpleasant event. Then we can use our Reiki skills to nurture and heal this part. When we do this, the unpleasant experiences will stop and be replaced by healthy positive experiences.

As we continue on our healing path, we will become aware of a level of consciousness that resides deep within each of us that can bring a wonderful new way of living. It creates a new attitude that is entirely positive and brings with it the ability to solve many problems and create positive results that previously we did not think possible.

So, let’s release all desire to hold onto negative ways that limit our happiness, but instead, embrace the inner light of Reiki. Within the source of Reiki resides the love of the universe. Those who focus on this love, and surrender to its healing power are opening to wonderful changes that will lead not only to peace within, but hopefully to peace on earth as well

The nature of the Usui Mastership, and the energies that become available to us, can be an ongoing process involving continuous personal growth. With the Master attunement and the use of the master symbol, we receive the opportunity to open more and more completely to the limitless potential of Reiki and to develop in ourselves the qualities that are contained in the Reiki energy. The Japanese name for the Master level of Reiki is Shinpiden which means "Mystery Teaching." I does not matter how developed we become, in this life or in any future level of existence, we will never fully understand it. This is why it is and will always remain a wonderful mystery.

When we receive the Master symbol and the attunement that empowers it, it creates the possibility for us to become aware of the Ultimate Reality. This is expressed in the definition of the Usui master symbol which indicates that it represents that part of the self that is already completely enlightened. When we use this symbol, we are actually connecting with our own enlightened selves. This in fact, is the true source of Reiki energy - it actually comes from the deepest and most important part of our own nature, our own enlightened self.

                                                  Usui Reiki Master Teacher


Becoming a Master teacher is a huge responsibility. This cannot be undertaken lightly. To be able to teach another you need to learn how to instruct others and that cannot be taught in a few days. It is not possible to teach reiki without seeing first hand how the various levels are taught. You will have done at least 50 hours hands on, distant and animal healing with verifiable records, to take this course.

To be able to pass as a Master teacher and receive accreditation, you will need to sit through all the levels beside Margaret as she teaches. Here you will learn how to deal with challenging students, answer important questions which will come up, how to provide support and care to your students .

                                                               The reiki attunement ceremony

 to move forward with this healing work. God bless this brilliant woman.
