About Total Reiki Mastery
Hi! My name is Duane Flowers and I’d like to warmly welcome you to Total Reiki Mastery (previously known as Reiki – What It All Be Like), my personal Reiki Blog. I was first introduced to Reiki in about 1990 and after moving to Japan (where I have lived since 1994) I have had the opportunity to study Reiki with some of Japan’s greatest living Reiki Masters which I continue to this day. You can read about my earliest experiences with Reiki in my post on Reiki Lite, and you can meet my teachers Hiroshi Doi and Hyakuten Inamoto in my posts on their respective styles Gendai Reiki and Komyo Reiki.
In these pages I share with you everything I can about the wonderful healing art known as Reiki. I use the word can, because there is quite a bit I cannot share due to non-disclosure agreements (as is true with information about the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai), information given to me in confidence by my teachers and/or other Reiki Masters over the years or information that is exclusive to my own Reiki Training which is called Hana Reiki. As you can see by the volume of information encapsulated in these pages there is quite a bit I can and do share (and there are multiple hints embedded for that which I cannot).
Reiki is a form of spiritual practice used as a complementary therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual disorders. Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926) developed Reiki in mid 19th century Japan, where he said he received the ability of ‘healing without energy depletion’ after three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama. Practitioners use a technique similar to the laying on of hands, which they say will channel “healing energy” (ki). Practitioners state that energy flows through their hands to bring about healing and that the method can be used for self-treatment as well as the treatment of others. Reiki has no religious affiliations at all and blends quite nicely with any religion or healing modality.
These pages are dedicated to learning all there is to know about Reiki through its discussion and I encourage all readers to take part in those discussions so that they can deliver the most current, up to date, state of the art thoughts on Reiki and all the wonderful things that surround this amazing discipline. Ask any questions you may and we will certainly do our best to answer them!!!
Thank you for visiting and please come back often!!
