Reiki was originally called Su Lingzi or “vibration of the smallest particles” and was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th century. The practice of Lingzi Su, however, goes back to a method of the Daoist school QianZheng LongMen Pai which existed during the reign of Genghis Khan.
Mikao Usui practiced and studied at the end of the 19th century in Manchuria at the QianZheng LongMen Pai. Back in Japan, he had to flee because of political displeasure and lived for three months in the woods where he suffered hunger and cold.
In his desperation he prayed to the lineage ancestors of the QianZheng LongMen Pai. At a certain moment, chanting the name QianZheng TaiLing with the hands in the classic ‘prayer posture’ before his chest, he began to feel a strong vibration in his entire body. His hands – still in the same posture – spontaneously went violently up and down. He continued to practice every day, and the vibrations and frequencies became stronger and stronger. Back home he started teaching the exercises.
Mikao Usui postulated that everything in the universe can be divided into ever smaller particles. Lingzi describes the vibrations of the infinitely small particles. Usui said already at the beginning of the 20th century that the universe and everything within it exists of vibration.
Today, the original techniques of Lingzi area only practiced and applied only by a few people. The lessons concentrate around the Lingzi vibration-exercises so that practitioners develop in a fast and safe way their vibration force and offer an opportunity to re-connect with the source of the cosmic forces.
These exercises are also excellent tools for people with pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and hands due to chronic overload (‘Repetitive Strain Injury’ or ‘physical condition by repeated overload’).
