Reiki Talk with Frank Arjava Petter - Transformation of Body, Mind and Spirit

A mini-Master Class in Reiki - the direct transcript of NZ's online Conversation with Frank Arjava Petter​ 2021

Frank and I organised a series of Jikiden Reiki Classes in New Zealand for him to teach when Covid struck. We had to cancel all the Classes and Talks Frank was going to do and in place of his coming to NZ to teach, I asked him if he would give us a Talk on Reiki via Zoom.

Below is the transcript of his full talk. I likened it to a Master Class in Reiki.

Frank (Arjava) started out reminding us that we celebrate the centennial of the conception of Reiki in March 2022

It will be a hundred years since Usui Sensei woke up after a mystical experience and all he wanted to do going forward was sharing his joy with others. Reiki came into this world as his love song to humanity - Shin Sin Reiki Koyo - The Healing Method of Body, Mind and Spirit

Reiki is considered first and foremost for our own transformation

It should not primary used to get students or make more money. It was conceived for us.

Everybody has and can do Reiki, it is our birthright to enjoy Reiki

Through a Master/Teacher we receive Reiju to clear our inner channel. Reiju (the Reiki Attunement) cleanses us to fully enjoy the energy of Reiki.

Once our Reiki channel is open there is no other need to open or close anything else

With Reiki we activate the first two bodies of our being

The first body is the solid physical body. The second body is the spiritual, etheric, psycho-emotional body and all what we think we are.

In Shintoism the third body is the soul

In Shintoism the third body is the soul that is implanted into the forehead of the embryo during the first 2 to 3 months of pregnancy

The soul is not private, it is part of the collective consciousness. All humans are connected through the collective soul. The Soul is always perfect, therefore our work with Reiki concentrates on the first two bodies

Reiki is home work

Reiki is home-work, which means we work on our ‘home’ first, we work on ourselves. When we go deep into our home or self, we can hear the voices of the Gods who will give us further homework. In Japanese this homework is called Kyo, which means duty, our responsibility that we have chosen to learn in this life time.

Our tool for doing homework are the Five Precepts or Principles, Gokai

These five principles keep the mind healthy and should be part of a morning and evening routine where we hold our hands in Gassho, we concentrate on the space where the middle fingers meet and we chant the precepts feeling the meaning of the words in our hearts.

Kyo Dakewa                                                 Just for Today / Now

Ika Runa                                                                    Don’t angry

Shinpai Suna                                                            Don’t worry

Kansha Shite                                                            Be grateful

Gyo O Hage Me                                                      Do your duties

Hito Ni Shinshe Tsuni                                            Be kind to others

We chanted the Japanese version of the Gokai together. A special moment indeed

Chanting the Reiki Precepts (or Gokkai) is like a mantra, every word has a sacred spirit power which is called Kotodama

Arjava continued to explain the Five Precepts

Anger is toxic and worry creates drama. The antidote for anger and worry is gratefulness. If we are grateful without conditions, anger and worry disappear and we feel full in our heart, it will become open and wide.

The duties that we come here to do is the recognition of our responsibility to learn what we have chosen this lifetime to learn. By doing so we are letting go of our victimhood and we can easier respond to what is in front of us. We can give ourselves fully to what we can concentrate on.

Being kind to others comes easily when all other issues are taken care of. Through giving and teaching Reiki we connect with others and with Source.

Other options to work with ourselves

Meditation - which could be a Gassho meditation or any other meditation that we love doing

Breathing which helps purify the body. Breathing in through the nose and the top of the head, hoping the breath in the DanTien where the energy radiates out into our entire being, and
breathing out through the mouth, hands and feet. Doing this every day is recommended until the breath regulates itself.

Dry Bathing of shoulder and arms (Kenyoku)

A Reiki treatment is also considered a self-care technique as the energy of the Reiki giver and the Reiki receiver are intertwined. This should be part of a daily Reiki routine as well

Reiki Byosen

Reiki has a pulse, which can be felt in our Gassho hands when we chant the precepts and it can be felt when we put our hands on the body in a position to give Reiki to. It is a movement of
energy which switches on like a light which then turns on the light in the body as well.

With the Reiki energy we are moving Boysen, which is the movement of toxicity and the reaction of the body to the incoming energy, the healing process of the body.

Boysen comes in waves of 10-15 min and is a continues healing processthat can take time. Originally the aim working with Reiki was to work with the Boysen, not moving through the prescribed hand positions but to listen to the complaints of the client and feeling the reaction of the
body while Reiki energy was offered.

We are able to monitor the healing abilities of the body with our hands

We are able to monitor the healing abilities of the body with our hands. The body reacts with warmth and energy flow underneath the Reiki pulse. When we feel warmth and strong heat we know the body is reacting and healing. We can move on from there.

If we feel tingling or numbness in the hands it means we need to monitor the healing process. Toxins have accumulated in the body and the particular part of the body needs to be treated again and again until warmth and heat is felt which signals that the healing is done.

Stronger sensations or pain are signs that should be taken seriously. We would work on these parts first and stay there until heat comes. This could take months or even years, Reiki is the support the body needs to move through these strong blockages.

The element of touch is essential

Therefore the element of touch is essential and there is really no substitute for touch. Distant Reiki should only be considered in case of an emergency.

The greatest healer is the human body and we can observe the body healing itself daily. Absolute health is an illusion but finding happiness without being fully healthy is fulfilment.

Not complaining but embracing the challenge and ourselves can be very freeing”
