~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shinpiden is the Japanese word for 'mystery teachings'. It is aimed at Level II practitioners or established Reiki Teachers who wish to continue their personal journey, a journey that is ongoing long after you complete the Shinpiden course. It is therefore not just about teaching and is even suitable for those who wish to simply develop their personal Reiki practise and occasionally teach those around them.

Reiki Healing with People and Animals - are there Differences?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When a loved one is sick, what do you do? Ask where it's hurting, then ask what you can do to help make it better: maybe offer soup, quiet, or some Reiki?

Depending on the response, together you decide what the best option is, one or ALL of the above. Perfect!


Now say that your loved one is not a human but an animal friend. Even just trying to ask where it hurts adds a level of difficulty to the situation. So often I hear the frustration of people who aren't sure what's wrong with their animal friend. Everyone can see that all is not well, but why?


The next level of difficulty is working out what to do. All is not well, sometimes we know why and other times not, but how can we help? How do you ask what your animal friend needs?

Transforming Life with the Great Death 
The Deeper Meaning of Usui's Mountain Experience

by FRANS STIENE 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is said that when Mikao Usui, the founder of the system of Reiki, asked his teacher about his spiritual progress, his teacher said, "You have to die once." Usui-san took this advice and sat on Mt. Kurama for 21 days to meditate to die once.

 

Some people suggest that he meant to physically die, but if that were the case it would have been much easier for him to climb Mt. Kurama and jump off a cliff, rather than to sit for a difficult practice for 21 days.

But if it was not the physical death that his teacher pointed to, what kind of death was it then?

 

In Japanese spiritual traditions 'to die once' means to go through the Great Death (in Japanese, Daishi) so that we are able to rediscover our True Self.

Mikao Usui's memorial stone states, "One day, he climbed kurama yama and after 21 days of a severe discipline without eating, he suddenly felt One Great Reiki over his head and attained enlightenment and he obtained Reiki Ryoho." The purpose of this "severe discipline" was to help him "die once" so that he could rediscover his True Self/Reiki. It was this Great Death experience that preceded his creation of the spiritual system of Reiki. It was after this experience that he really found purpose in his life and started to teach more and more people his spiritual teachings.
