The Ritual of Reiju

There are many forms of reiju/initiation/attunement some with touch and some without.
With his depth of practice, Mikao Usui could just sit opposite his student and let the reiju - spiritual offering unfold by itself without any physical ritual. However, this is not so easy.

In hearing each student share their experience of their Reiju, I get to watch a person fall in love with and remember that they are Reiki.

Every BODY Loves Reiju

One of the many delightful aspects of the Shinpiden class is not only learning how to give a spiritual blessing, but also receiving a reiju oneself. So, once we returned home from Frans’ Shinpiden class in Sonoma last April, my wife and I made the conscious decision that we would give each other a daily reiju. What better way to celebrate life and renew our energy each day. Just for today.
