Shinpiden (Reiki 3)

The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai, meaning “Usui Reiki Healing Method Learning Society”, is the name of the society of Reiki Masters founded by Mikao Usui.

Gendai Reiki Ho is not a new Reiki system. It can be referred to as “original Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho in the Gendai Reiki style,” as it allows people in modern society to learn and practice the original Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho easily and comfortably.

Certification levels of Gendai Reiki Ho: 

  • Level I – Shoden (Reiki 1)
  • Level II – Okuden (Reiki 2)
  • Level III – Shinpiden (Reiki 3)
  • Level IV – Gokuikaiden (Master)

The fourth symbol, called the Usui Symbol or Master Symbol, is the supreme symbol of Reiki-ho and considered very sacred overseas.

The fourth symbol and its Kotodama are given by three attunements. This greatly changes the quality of the energy that flows inside you; it becomes as fine and subtle as the higher dimensional energy. The energy works on the body and the consciousness to connect and unite them with the Light of the higher dimension.

When you reach this level, you will consider Reiki as the hado that guides you to spiritual awareness, and you will want to resonate with Reiki all the time to help you advance yourself through your daily life.

Reiki is not just a technique for you anymore. Instead, you reach the highest level of energy, and your self-cleansing and healing ability make remarkable progress.

Reiki-ho (“Reiki” In English) is a traditional Japanese way of using Ki for hands-on healing of the body and mind, the same way as other hand healings that have existed from ancient times. It was originally established as “Usui Reiki Ryoho” by Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926) in 1922 as “the way to make mind and body healthy on the basis of the Universal Reiki“.
