Ishikuro knowledge on…………. Calligraphy symbols and spirit communication
This science of energy, based on the language of symbols, comes to us from ancient Tibet, having been rediscovered in the Indian Sutras in the mid-19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, a scholar who brought the Reiki System into full development in Japan. The science is not Japanese, but is related to a number of similar kinds of universal energy sciences from India/Tibet such as the science of Mandala and Yantras, and any science based on Mantras.
Reiki consist of three degree’s or grades as taught by Dr. Hayashi in the 1930’s to Hawayo Takata of Hawaii. Takata and I were born and lived on the large island of Hawaii during the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s until moving to California. I was initiated into the three degree’s of Reiki by Takata in 1973.
Symbols play a crucial role in influencing of one’s own body for one’s own benefit or for the well being of another individual who is experiencing negative conditions. Realizing that psychological problems have direct influences upon one’s body temple, Tibetan holy men began correcting the state of mind, and made Sanskrit symbols to remind the people of the divine power in their daily lives. Other uses for the symbols include: improving health, increasing happiness, aiding in meditation, sending prayers, healing, and helping ones evolution. The Johrei symbol is a perfect example. It can be made in any size and hung in any place. It is hung to provide peace, protection, balance, success, power, and righteousness.
Practice makes perfect. Growing from unbelieving to a believer.
