Healing with Reiki

By Evania

Lead us from the unreal to the real
from darkness into light
from death to immortality

-a quote found in ancient Christian, Hindu & Buddhist doctrines.

Through Reiki, one becomes connected to the spiritual nature of the universe and as we experience this subtle energy, we realize we always had this ability inherent in us.

- Dr Ranga Premaratna

What's Reiki

REIKI may be described as the force behind every living being. 

It is the essential substance that keeps life in motion, therefore

 in the broadest sense, REIKI is life itself.

Reiki also refers to an ancient healing form which can be traced back to early Tibetan Buddhist times. It was rediscovered in the early 1900's by a Japanese scholar, Dr Mikao Usui, after undertaking an extensive study of the healing phenomena of some of history's greatest spiritual leaders. He dedicated the rest of his life to the practise and teaching of this method, which he named Reiki, The Usui System of Natural Healing

Reiki gives you access to a high vibrational frequency of the Universal Energy Field, enabling you to transform the universal energy (Rei) into life energy (Ki) that can be used in the physical realm. This energy is then absorbed by every cell in the body, accelerating your own healing ability and opening your mind to the underlying causes of "dis-ease" and pain. Thus, Reiki provides support and balance in your life, not only on a physical level, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually.


Reiki complements any form of medical treatment, whether it be orthodox as in modern medicine, or natural as in herbal medicine, homeopathy or nutritional therapy. It is one of the few healing methods you can successfully use on yourself and with daily treatment, allows you to take responsibility for your own health and ultimate well-being.


Reiki is not a belief system or religion. It works solely on an energy level and can be practised by anyone, regardless of previous experience or age. It is also extremely effective on children, animals and plants. It can be used in child-birth, with the terminally ill including transition from life, and everything in between!


Reiki Jin Kei Do is a spiritual lineage initiated by Dr Usui and passed down through the Buddhist monks. Every effort has been made to keep the core teachings as true to the original form taught by him, but there is additional material from The Venerable Takeuchi, The Venerable Seiji Takamori and Dr Ranga Premaratna.


What happens in a Reiki Attunement

The Universal Energy Field has the potential to manifest in our physical reality in many different vibrational frequencies. The Reiki Master, by resonating with certain symbols, can access energy generated from this field at a specific vibrational frequency compatible with our systems for healing. This transformed energy is called Reiki.

As infants and children we are open in our thinking, and our energy centres and channels are more directly in contact with the surrounding energy field. As we grow older, our social conditioning and the environment in which we live, make us less and less aware of our connection to this energy field. The Reiki symbols used by the Master in the initiation process, allow us to gain access to the different healing vibrations of the universal energy field and as we consciously experience this subtle energy, we realize that we always had this ability inherent in us.


This history of Reiki is a synthesis of information from several sources. Some has been passed by verbal transmission, and some can be found through researching various sites.

Re-discovery of an Ancient Healing Method - Mikao Usui

In the early 1900's, a Japanese scholar named Mikao Usui re-discovered the ancient healing art we now call Reiki. Born in 1865, he developed a deep interest in religion, philosophy, and natural healing and it is quite possible that he studied Buddhist sutras or scriptures, to investigate the healing that was performed by the Buddha. The Japanese Buddhist sutras were translations of the Chinese Buddhist sutras, so Mikao Usui studied Chinese in order to further his knowledge. It is also possible that he studied Buddhist, Taoist and Medical Chi Gong (Qi gong) to learn more about energy healing. However, being unsuccessful in finding anything specfic, he directed his research to the early Sanskrit sutras that were taken to China and Japan when Buddhism spread there.

It is documented that he travelled to America, Europe and China and it is highly likely that he also visited Nepal and Tibet in search of the original teachings

A naval officer and medical doctor named Dr Chujiro Hayashi

Among Mikao Usui's students was a naval officer and medical doctor named Dr Chujiro Hayashi. After completing his training, Dr Hayashi opened a Reiki Clinic in Tokyo and he is believed to be the person who organized Reiki teaching into three levels, developing hand positions for treatment based on his knowledge of medical anatomy and physiology.

A Japanese American from Hawaii, named Hawayo Takata

She went to Japan to seek medical treatment and was referred to Dr Hayashi's Reiki Clinic instead of undergoing surgery. After intensive treatment, she was cured of her illness and was so impressed by Reiki that she pleaded with Dr Hayashi to teach her, consequently working voluntarily in the clinic for a year afterwards as his student. She returned to Hawali where her practice thrived, and became a Reiki Master in February 1938, after a visit from Dr. Hayashi. He later recognized her as his successor in the lineage prior to his passing, just before the outbreak of World War ll.

 Hawayo Takata concentrated mainly on treatment and classes until a few years before her death when she started Master attunement, training at least 22 people in the USA to this level, who then began teaching many and spreading Reiki world-wide. She died in December of 1980, and was succeeded by her grand-daughter Phyllis, who is currently recognized by most as Grand Master of Rriki Usui Shiki Ryoho, which honours the Spiritual Lineage of Dr. Mikao Usui, Dr Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata and Phyllis Furumoto.


Reiki Jin Kei Do is a spiritual lineage initiated by Dr Usui and passed down through the Buddhist monks. Every effort has been made to keep the core teachings as true to the original form taught by him, but there is additional material from The Venerable Takeuchi, The Venerable Seiji Takamori and Dr Ranga Premaratna. Their combined efforts have led to the unfolding of the Buddho System of Healing, from which it is believed Reiki developed.

Reiki Jin Kei Do was named by the current lineage head, Dr Ranga Premaratna, and refers to using Reiki as a daily, spiritual practice to develop compassion and wisdom. Reiki as a discipline, then becomes a way of life and not just another healing method.

Seiji Takamori's Search For Truth

Seiji Takamori spent most of his early life in a remote Buddhist monastery in Japan, training to be a Zen monk under The Venerable Takeuchi. He was ordained at the age of 19.

Takeuchi, had been initiated as a Reiki Master by Dr Chujiro Hayashi to help the poor villagers who supported the monastery. Seiji observed Takeuchi performing this healing with his hands, and requested to learn Reiki from him. Takeuchi frequently tested Seiji's proficiency whilst receiving Reiki treatments from him, and when Seiji had reached a certain stage of development, he was given further attunements and was again tested.

Dr Ranga Premaratna's Path To Reiki

Ranga was born in Sri Lanka in 1957. From an early age, he was exposed to Buddhism and begaon Vipassana meditation when he was 15 years old. Vipassana is a Buddhist meditation practice which teaches mindfulness of your physical and metal processes to realize your true nature and that of the Universe.

In 1978 he moved to USA with his wife, to study Microbiology at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. After completing his PhD in Food Microbiology and Biotechnology from Purdue University in 1989, he moved to Madison, Wisconsin where he worked as a post-doctoral research scientist at the Food Research Institute.

- Reiki Jin Kei Do


It is always so difficult to write about oneself. It feels like I am an ever-changing,
constantly renewing self. I can tell you about what I have done and this may point to
a part of me, but it still doesn't say much. The only thing that will tell you about who I
am is the way in which I live my life. It changes every day as I see deeper
inside my true self.

Spiritual Experience

I had a spiritual experience in 1992 which totally changed my life and my belief system. All my life, I have been curious. As a teenager I read books on many subjects which would be called esoteric and I was always drawn to the world we could not see. I had been a Police Officer, an Olympic athlete, a sports journalist, a champion for women sports and the underdogs, a wife, a much-travelled person, and someone who did an awful lot. I was an achiever, a perfectionist, a know-all, a stubborn and intolerant person. Then my marriage broke down when I returned from the Barcelona Games, and in my quest for answers as my heart broke, I was given an experience where I became one with everything and understood that I was a spiritual person in physical form, trying to manifest the concepts of love in my life.        Thus began a much more inner journey of discovery. 

Inner Journey

I began to meditate and listen to what I know now are truths of the heart and inner knowing that I had ignored for most of my life. As I changed in so many ways, I felt the need to change my name as I began to understand that my life had a purpose and I committed to that purpose. The name Evania came to me in meditations and basically wouldn't leave me alone until I had a ceremony of change. I later discovered the name means "Child of Peace". As my energy centres began to strengthen as I began to clear away my inner "demons" and inflexible attitudes, my hands began to tingle. I heard of Reiki from a friend and immediately signed up for a weekend workshop. From day one, it became my best support and friend - for all occasions. It was the best gift I ever gave myself as it helped me to uncover my deeper self, and I started to research spirituality and religion and their meaning to me.

I am finding an inner depth of joy and peace that I never thought possible

In the course of what I consider my "more aware" new life, I became a healer, a massage therapist, a champion of abused, homeless kids, a funeral director, a  carer for my parents in their later years until their deaths, a teacher of Reiki and meditation and basically a changed person.

I am finding an inner depth of joy and peace that I never thought possible and I live my life as simply as I can, following my heart and the voice inside me that I know will lead me to where I need to go. Sometimes needing to have great faith in that voice, I follow as best I can, not only the spiritual precepts of Reiki but the teachings of Jesus, the Buddha and any other great teacher who ever came to teach. They all have the same basic message - we are one and our journey is about living the principles of love and compassion to all we meet, including ourselves.

Who is Evania? I am not sure, but I am enjoying the unfolding of my life and the lessons being presented to me each day.

fees and services

.All workshops involve hands-on attunements and treatments. Students learn as a
one-on-one experience or in a small class setting - depending upon mutually agreeable needs.

level one

It is the basic level to begin your Reiki journey. All students
receive approximately 18 hours of tuition, manuals containing photographs, full explanation of Reiki, the beginnings, the teaching and understandings, experiences to enable a student to feel competent and confident to give a treatment to self and others, a certificate of achievement and completion, and the ongoing support of Evania as you step into the journey that Reiki gives you.

level two

It is recommended for those who wish to deepen their own journey, or wish to become a practitioner. In this level sacred symbols are introduced into the aura of the student to enable more powerful healings and "distant" healings. This is available to students who have used Reiki on a regular level and an interview is required to ensure the student understands facets of Level 1 before moving to the next step. Again, fully presented manuals are given with a certificate and students are given practise to new and deeper techniques in hands-on attunements and workshops.

Beyond Level 1 and 2 - with Jin Kei Do Reiki, a student has an ability to deepen their journeys without having to learn Master level. They are able to do workshops with teachers proficient in Buddho training - which deepens their own healing and understanding of spirituality and how it bridges the Mind and Body physicalities. Evania can recommend students to appropriate teachers if they wish to pursue this avenue.

master level

Those who have a deeper calling to their own healing and to teach Reiki, will feel attracted to go further with their studies.  This involves similar to an apprenticeship with their Teaching Master.  All experience in how to attune, run workshops, speak in public, present themselves and Reiki to the general public, and deeper understandings to unlock attitudes and experience which need to be brought into the light of understanding are part of the training for this level.  More information and fees will be discussed with each student.

Evania travels regularly interstate (Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales) and overseas (Mainly USA and Europe). If you have a question about availability please make contact to see if a workshop or teachings can be arranged in your area.
