Through a fortunate encounter, there was someone who expressed a strong desire to learn Jikiden Reiki, and today was the first day of the Jikiden Reiki class.
When I left Canada, I thought I might be away from Reiki for a while. Amidst the chaos of relocating, the conversation flowed smoothly, and today, on July 4th, the 47th anniversary of my father's passing due to a medical mistake, I was able to hold the first class here in Goto Island.
It's truly a deeply moving experience. I'm grateful to the dog that connected us.
"Western medicine is certainly important, but it's also important not to rely solely on it. Keep spreading what can be done at home". It felt like my father was cheering me on from the other side, saying those words.
When things can be unavailable or sold out, Reiki therapy is always available, useful, wouldn't sell out, anytime, anywhere.
During the Edo period in Japan, traditional medicine mainly revolved
around herbal medicine and medicinal plants. It was common for doctors
to make house calls, and the concept of hospitals did not exist.
Taking care of patients at home until the end was the norm back then.
It may have been difficult, but I think it embodies humanity.
Jikiden Reiki is an old family therapy passed down since the Taisho period.
It is one of the things that can be done at home.
It's truly gentle just by placing hands. Touching, being touched,
looking into each other's eyes, reading expressions—these are
important things that we must not lose as human beings.
That's all for today.
