In 1864, Mikao Usui was born in Japan and raised by Christian missionaries. He grew up a devout believer. When asked if he believed in Jesus’ miracles, he said, “Yes.” But when challenged to prove his faith by performing a similar miracle, not only could he not perform it, but his entire belief structure was shaken to the core.
This led him to a simple question: “How did Jesus heal?” He studied the Bible, but found no answer. He looked at other systems such as Shintoism and Buddhism. Since the Buddha was not a god, but an actual man from India, he studied ancient Sanskrit texts. There he discovered symbols which would lead him, through prayer and meditation, to the unique healing system which has come to be known as Reiki.
