My Reiki path

I would like to write what made me decide to learn reiki.
If I track back when did my Reiki path start, I think it started when I was 4 years old.

My father was passed away when he was 39years old by a medical accident.

I was 4 years when my father passed away, and it was just normal for me 
that father was not home.

My mother used to be a nutritionist and cooking teacher.
With my father's accident, my two older sistersand I learned from my mother
to eat healthy, laugh a lot to maintain our health.

When I was in high school, I thought it would be beneficial for me to gain deeper knowledge of human body for the time when I would become a mother and to protect my future family. 
I decided to go to Tokyo Women's College of Physical Education and 
earned a bachelor degree of Health and Physical Education.

Later with my mother's unexpected tragetic death, my curiousity about the spirit world
was dramatically increased. I missed my parents and I wanted to connect with them.

Time went by, and I started to have my own family.

My first son was born 2002, and he was a very healthy baby.

My second child was born 2004, and she developed a severe case of Eczema.

This was the beginning of her eczema. She was 3 month old.
Mayu could not make “poo” regularly at this time.
She would go without any bowel movenment for 13days!
(2004, June)

Triggered by vaccination, her skin flared up.
(2004, Sep)

Her skin got better also she start to make poo everyday
since start using Sunrider tea and nuplus consistently.
(2004, Oct)

Triggered by high fever, her entire face was covered with wounds.
This photo was taken after her skin got little better than worst time. I was too sad to
take photos when she was in worse condition. I was desperate to find a solution.
Skin specialist only prescribed anti-histamine and steroid cream. I refused it.
(2005, April)

Losing my father by medical accident, and my mother's teaching of nutrition opened me
up for the approach of alternative method.
I knew covering up with steroid cream was not the answer, I wanted to approach
to the cause, not the symptoms. 
But doctors did not understand what I wanted to do.

When I went out for grocery shopping, kid’s drop-in, people around her told me
“Did you take her to a doctor?”

“Did she burn herself?”

“what kind of skin disease is this?”

“Try this cream, try that medication.”

"Is this contagious?"

The conversation always went to her skin condition everyday and
I felt like people were thinking I was a bad mom who did not take care of
her own baby while I was doing my best I could. (2005, April)

Her skin broke out and she would rub her face on a bedding sheet.
Sheets had blood stains, always.
If she eats something wrong, her skin would flare up, and I would only feed her rice,
apple and few other foods and Sunrider foods to calm her system down.
My friend, Sharon, started to help us with her homeopathic treatments.
(2005, May )

Slowly, her system started to calm down.
A Japanese energy healer, Kimi, worked on her, and I saw a big improvement.
Kimi and Sharon suggested me to learn Reiki.
I took Western Reiki right after this photo. (2005, Oct)

Still having break outs here and there.
I took Jikiden Reiki around this time, and I felt
a big difference in my Reiki hands. (2006, March)

I could see her fore head is starting to be clear.
(2006, May)

After two month of every night Jikiden Reiki treatments for
her digestive system, I started to feel that Reiki really works.
2 days later from this photo, our third child,Geoff, was born.
(2006, May)

After 5 month of Jikiden Reiki treatment. I stop doing
Reiki every night but once in a while.

Her skin condition was completely clear and never came back to her face.
Still being careful what she eats. (2007, January)

Now, she can eat anything. Not a bit of skin rash.

My first intention was to help my daughter's eczema.
But seeing the result right in front of me, I started think that I want to spread this ability!

Reiki is such a simple technique that does not require any medical knowledge.
I know, not everybody would be interested in, but absolutely everyone can learn and
have a benefit from Reiki.

Having Reiki in my life has also brought a great peace in my mind.
I am not an angry person to start, but peace in my mind had noticeably increased.

2007, I became Shihankaku teacher and 2008 I became a Shihan teacher.
Since then I have been teaching and practising Jikiden Reiki with my heart .... 

I just love Reiki so much!
