A brief history of healing.
Dr Mikao Usui
Mikao Usui, was well known and respected as a healer who practiced and taught both healing and martial arts. He believed ‘right thinking and right living’ were essential for spiritual growth and self-development. Mikao Usui formed a method of healing spread love and light throughout the world, he was a truly great and enlightened man, intelligent and hardworking and applied himself to improve body, mind and spirit. Mikao Usui travelled to ‘Mount Kurama (Japanese Kurama Yama)’ Where he went through ‘Kushu-Shinren (Lit. – Japanese painfil discipline difficult training)’ for twenty-one days. This was a form of ‘Shyu Gyo (Lit. – Japanese training or discipline)’. For the twenty-one days Mikao Usui meditated, prayed, chanted and fasted by abstaining from any food. It is believed he underwent this ‘Shyu Gyo’ in March 1922, on the twenty first day of his ‘Shyu Gyo’ Dr Mikao Usui received his ‘Satori (Lit. Japanese – spiritual awakening or enlightenment)’ and knowledge of his Spiritual healing methods, his ‘Reiki Ryoho’. Some text suggest that Mikao Usui teaching were decades old by the time he formed ‘Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (Lit. Japanese – Society of the Usui spiritual energy healing method)’. It is believed that these were earlier forms of healing that Mikao Usui developed in to his ‘Reiki Ryoho’ after his ‘Satori’. Mikao Usui wanted to share ‘Reiki Ryoho’ with other people, he worked helping the poor of ‘Kyoto’ initially. In the eleventh year of the ‘Taisho’ period, in April 1922 Dr Mikao Usui opened a dojo (Lit. Japanese – place of the way, i.e. a place of learning)’ in ‘Aoyama Harajuku, Tokyo’ which was open to the public for teaching and healing. It was said at this same time Dr Mikao Usui started the ‘Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai’ this society still exists today but is not open to foreigners nor are its members allowed to share any of the knowledge with non-members. People came from around Japan to learn Reiki Ryoho and to receive treatment from Dr Mikao Usui, his students stated on his memorial stone that, ‘Many pairs of shoes of visitors from near and far were lined up even outside of his dojo’.
Mikao Usui, expertise covered many areas of knowledge, such as Buddhism and Buddhist scriptures, history, medicine, psychology, kiko, mysticism, numerology, psychic and spiritual. ‘Kiko’ is a Japanese form of Qigong, a practice that originated at the Shaolin Temple in China. ‘Kiko/Qigong’ are practised as part of traditional martial arts to promote inner health and strength to complement the external strength from the martial arts training. Mikao Usui adapted his ‘Kiko’ teachings to use this method of channelling energy. Over a period of time and with greater experience and understanding of this energy and its use, Mikao Usui developed ‘Kiko’ into Reiki. This was a gradual process and the system evolved to use ‘shirushi’ (symbols) and ‘kotodama’ (mantra) to channel energy at specific frequencies. The final version became known as ‘Usui Reiki Ryoho’.
Qigong (pronounced “Chi kung”) it is a combination of two Chinese ideograms: qi, meaning “vital energy,” and gong meaning “skill,” “work,” and “achievement”. Qigong is a general term for a variety of traditional Chinese energy exercises and healing practices and refers to integrated mind-body exercises for mastering or cultivation of vital energy. Qigong forms an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), TCM posits the existence of a subtle energy, qi circulating throughout the entire human mind and body. The concept of bioenergy can be found in other cultures, such as ki in Japan, prana in India, mana in Hawaii and the Philippines. When strengthened or balanced it can improve health and ward off or slow down the progress of disease. Qigong is the main component of TCM and has a history longer than Chinese medicine itself, but did not become popular until the 1950’s. At the time Qigong gained public acceptance over other traditional and more abstruse terms such as daoyin (conduction), tuina (taking out the stale energy and putting in the fresh energy) yangxiou (health maintenance and cultivation) Xiounian (cultivation and practice) Yangsheng (health maintenance and improvement). Referances to Qigong can be found throughout more than 3000 years of written records divided in to four major period.
The first period was marked in history by a famous book ‘Yi Jing’ (book of changes) introduced in 1122 B.C. It presented qi as the concept of natural energies and the integration of heaven, earth and man. During the ‘Zhou’ dynasty (1122-934 B.C.) ‘Lao Zi’s De Jing’ mentioned certain breathing techniques and established the philosophical foundation for Qigong and Daoism.
The second period (206 B.C.–500 A.D.) Qigong mixed with religion. During the ‘Han’ dynasty (206 B.C.) Buddhism meditation methods were imported from India, which brought Qigong practices and meditation into the religious Qigong era. Not long after Buddhism was introduced to China ‘Zhang Dao-Ling’ combined the traditional Daoist (Taoism) principles with Buddhism and created a religion ‘Dao Jiao’. At that time Tibet had developed its own branch of Buddhism, later these practices were integrated with Qigong cultivation and practices. The founder of ‘Zen’ (a Buddhist Qigong tradition), ‘Bodhidharma’ (?-528 A.D.), spent 9 years in a deep meditative state facing a rocky wall in a cave at the Shaolin Temple. The Chinese saying stated “Bodhidharma brought with him no word from the west but the skill to work with mind and consciousness.” ‘Bodhidharma’ was also considered a significant contributor to the creation and development of martial art Qigong, which is the Qigong style he taught in the Shaolin Temple.
The third period of development with the appearance of martial art Qigong (500-1950 A.D.). In the ‘Liang’ dynasty (502-557 A.D.) people discovered in addition to improving health, Qigong could improve strength and be used for self defence and fighting. The application of Qigong in martial arts increased in popularity in society. Many different forms of Qigong were created for this purpose in parallel both religious and medical. Qigong developed rapidly over this period.
The fourth period of modern Qigong research and massive (large scale of promotion and practice) Qigong movement (1950’s – present). During the cultural revolution (1966-1976) Qigong was considered a pseudoscience or idealism and its practice was forbidden from China. In 1978 many scientist and Qigong practitioners were interested in reviving Qigong as one of the effective healing methods in health care.
Edgar Cebert in 1907, found that the soul when it leaves the body at death weigh’s about 21 grams. The 21 grams experiment refers to a scientific study published in 1907 by Dr. Duncan MacDougall, a physician from Haverhill, Massachusetts. He weighed six dead bodies before and after death to determine any differences and the results were published in a 1907 edition of the Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research. Researchers, scientist and doctors have said the amount of people who develop a sup-personality in their life times is near, if not 100%, of all people who populate the Globe in the 21st century. Also that 75-100% of people in the 21st century suffer a spirit attachment in their life time. Have you ever heard of a Kirlian camera? Jamie Hoagland from the centre for the new age in Sedona Arizona can see peoples aura & has a $10, 000 digital Kirlian camera. A Kirlian camera can record photographic images of corona discharges and hence, the auras of living creatures.
In 1924 Hans Berger a German psychiatrist, develop his theory of different brain waves. A theory that after various experiments of Paranormal Phenomena he strongly believed in. He measured the impulses emitted from a motor vehicle accident victim that had removed part of their skull during a motor vehicle accident. The first brain waves explored were call Alpha waves by Hans Berger, they were of an average range of 8Hz to 14Hz (cycle per second), they had an amplitude of 100 micro volts. Berger found that when emitting alpha brain waves the person is in a state somewhere between waking and sleeping both mentally and physically relaxed with all neurons emitting the same frequency of brainwave. Meanwhile Berger had discovered Beta waves which had a higher frequency of 14Hz and a lower amplitude of 10-50 microvolts. These waves correspond with attention, vigilance and concentration on exterior objects. When they had developed the Electroencephalogram it gave them the capability of measuring other types of brain waves like Theta waves which had a frequency of 4Hz – 7Hz and amplitude of 200 microvolts. They were emitted whilst under certain emotional conditions or a certain phase of sleep. Delta waves were found to be 3Hz – 200 microvolts or less, and to 1milivolt amplitude, emitted in a deep sleep state of sleep or a state approaching death.
King Louis XIV
There are various accounts of healing being used in various countries by English kings and queens in history. They practiced healing and treating tuberculosis of a glands in the neck, this form of healing was called the ‘King’s touch’. It was on the Church of England prayer book until 1719. King Henry VII introduce a practice by giving a healed person a small gold or silver coin this was called a ‘touch piece’ it was said to carry healing power. Charles II was one of the principal healers of this kind, there are reports he treated around 92000 people. Also that King Louis XIV treated around 1600 people one Easter Sunday.
In England today there is a charity called The Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU) this is a religious charity that supports Spiritualist Churches all across the United Kingdom, including the training of spiritual healers, spirit mediums, public speakers and teachers. The Spiritualists’ National Union is a Spiritualist organisation, founded in the United Kingdom in 1901, and is one of the largest Spiritualist groups in the world. Its motto is Light, Nature, Truth.
Franz Anton Mesmer has been named as the farther of hypnotherapy, he made hypnosis an orthodox method out of the Occult and super-natural, giving people preternatural powers, animal magentisum, psychological study and therapeutic healing. He studied medicine at the University of Vienna in 1759. In 1766 he published a doctoral dissertation with the Latin title De planetarum influxu in corpus humanum (On the Influence of the Planets on the Human Body). In 1778 Mesmer had his patients hold on to a baquet which he believed could heal them. The Baquet was a container filled with water, ground glass and magnetized iron filings. The Baquet had bottles and metal rods protruding from the contraption. Mesmer had a theory that all animated bodies and man was affected by a magnetic force that even influenced the celestial bodies.
Albert Einstein and a well known psychologist Sigmund Freud Freud abandoned hypnosis for psychoanalysis one hundred years ago, he maintained an interest in hypnotic phenomena throughout his work. Albert walked around the park with string in a baby carriage, to see how people reacted to it, after it had been in a baby’s condition. Up to 14 generations back we carry emotions and memories on how to behave and what to do, these are epigenetic memories. Have you seen the pictures Dr Masaru Emoto took and had in the tube stations in Japan of water that was treated differently?
Dr Laszlo is a Hungarian he is an advocate of the theory of quantum consciousness, Dr Laszlo just like Richard Feynman researched the existence of ‘Q point radiation’, László’s 2004 book, Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything posits a field of information as the substance of the cosmos. The Akashic Chronicle is a compendium of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future. They are believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the mental plane. Sanskrit term akasha was introduced to the language of theosophy through H. P. Blavatsky (1831–1891), who characterized it as a sort of life force; she also referred to “indestructible tablets of the astral light” recording both the past and future of human thought and action, but she did not use the term “akashic”. The notion of an akashic record was further disseminated by Alfred Percy Sinnett in his book Esoteric Buddhism (1883) when he cites Henry Steel Olcott’s A Buddhist Catechism (1881). Olcott wrote that “Buddha taught two things are eternal, ‘Akasa’ and ‘Nirvana’: everything has come out of Akasa in obedience to a law of motion inherent in it, and, passes away. Nothing ever comes out of nothing.
