Narural Healing Energy for Mind, Body & Spirit

Japanese Reiki classes & meditation Gendai Reiki Ho Classes, Komyo Reiki Kai Classes, Healing Sessions and my Guided Meditations all take center stage in healing and maintaining Well-Being in Mind, Body & Spirit.

Usui Reiki Ryoho, the original spiritual healing art Mikao Usui founded, brings balance and harmony to all cells in mind, body, and spirit–the whole life.  

For centuries there have been many healing practices using different energies and methods.  The original spiritual healing art that Mikao Usui founded in 1922 is different than any of them.  <What is Reiki > 

Mikao Usui said about his spiritual healing art, Usui Reiki Ryoho, “It is love, harmony and healing energy.” © international 2002.    

The healing balance and harmony that comes with Usui Reiki Ryoho produces endless possibilities in healing the whole person or other life form.  When you are in-balance and with harmony all those around you are touched in a positive way. 

Everything is ENERGY 

ENERGY is Everything

Regardless of which way you say it, at the core of all cells is energy, There are many forms of energy.  Your Ki (different than life force or vital energy) is different than universal energy. iGendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai embrace the essence of Usui Sensei’s original teachings and practice using a piece of universal energy.  <Learning Reiki> 


The piece of universal energy is the vibrations of love & harmony.  This piece automatically flow to the core of what is causing symptoms of illnesses/injuries.  Once at the core healingbegins or enhances to create wellbeingin the whole person or other life form receiving. 

The healing balance & harmony goes wherever it is needed in the whole person or other life form including the energy field (aura), meridian lines, chakras, light body centers, mental, emotional, etc..

 What is in balance and surrounded with harmony heals in the way best for the life receiving at that junction in time.  <healing sessions>


Universal energy does not discriminate. Usui Reiki flows to all people, animals, birds and other life forms. Each life receiving can experience the Well-being that is best for him or her at that junction in time. 

As was said by Patch Adams in the movie, You treat the disease you can win or lose, but when you treat the whole person you win every time.” 

Each person/life form is unique, and each healing is unique. Side effects of Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai are health and happiness, less pain medication is needed, and things such as fractured bones and cuts can heal faster and better than expected. <healing sessions>


Mind, body, and spirit are not separate from each other.         

      When all of mind, body and spirit are in-balance and surrounded with harmony they are in alignment, and the quality of life improves–sometimes in unexpected ways.

Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai each embraces the essence of the original spiritual practice/ healing art,  in which Mikao Usui introduced the key to health and happiness through universal vibrations of love and harmony  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai> 

During in-person classes in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Ka, students are guided in how to use that key to weave the universal vibrations of love and harmony into all areas of lifewithout symbols or material objects.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

You can read about something or watch a documentary, but to know requires experience. Attending in-person classes and being guided through exercises during the hours in classes gives you the needed experience that leads to knowledge.  

The way your life unfolds is in your hands through which the healing vibrations of universal love and harmony can flow.< learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai>

Your mind, body and spirit being pain free while having a clear head is a beautiful way to live each present moment

Your life is a collection of present moments.

As Mikao Usui said, all people and other life forms have an inner healer.  Sometimes that inner healer needs help, and the spiritual healing art Usui Sensei created after connecting to a piece of universal energy can provide that help. <what is Reiki> 

The gentle noninvasive healing vibrations of love and harmony, which we have come to call Usui Reiki, bring balance & harmony to any imbalances in all of mind, body and spirit.  When combined with, or following medical treatments/therapies/surgeries the receiver can heal faster, better and takes less pain medication<Simple, yet profound>

If an imbalance has been present for a prolonged period, multiple injuries exist, or the life receiving has experienced traumatic events multiple sessions may be required.  When multiple sessions are best, I offer a discount on each fifth session. <Healing sessions>

The healing through Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai can help you step away from haunting traumas of all types, can increase mental clarity and emotional balance, and can purify and release negative karma.  Gendai Reiki-ho translates as Modern Reiki Method for Healing, but the meaning goes much deeper.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai

Through the hours in Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai classes you can learn to feel vibrations, experience self-healing, self-growth, expand your awareness, and uncover the true universal you.  <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho/ Komyo Reiki Kai>  


Or at this present moment you can listen to my Bluebird guided meditation, which has helped many people discover the good luck that is and has always been within them.   < Meditation and Beyond>

The first question everyone asks when he or she hears the word Reiki is, “What style of Usui Reiki Ryoho do you practice or teach?”

 I, Roberta R. Barnes, practice, teach and live Gendai Reiki-ho, which in 2002 I studied in-person directly from its founder Hiroshi Doi. 

 I also teach and practice  Komyo Reiki Kai, which 2003 I studied in-person directly from its founder Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto, 

Doi Sensei and Hyakuten Sensei each has only two Japanese Shihans between himself and Usui Sensei,  I explain their energy and technique lineages in classes, which helps students understand the history of Usui Reiki Ryoho.  

Once a persons’ pathway to the universal vibrations of love and harmony has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan that piece of universal energy of the highest dimension flows to heal as is best at that junction in time.  Possible can shine through.  © Roberta R. Barnes 

How I teach is best described by my students which you can see below and on my other pages: 

“To those of you who are thinking of enlightening your lives for the better, I would recommend taking classes from Roberta R. Barnes. I have taken . . . <read more>


Another of my students wrote She is truly the Real Deal, unpolluted and pure, a fountain of love and harmony.  If you are truly looking for a pure honest and factual learning experience then you need to spend time with Roberta <read more

Because each life is unique, and each illness/injury in mind, body or spirit is unique, healing through Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, as created, is unique to the receiver at that present moment<What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

The original spiritual healing art, Usui Reiki Ryoho, Mikao Usui Created/founded brings balance and harmony to where it is needed within and around all life forms without diagnosis, or the conscious mind directing.  <What is Reiki>


“Gendai Reiki Ho is the way to live your life healthily, peacefully, and happily in resonance with the Universe” international © Hiroshi Doi

When every corner of this world is in-balance and with harmony 

there will be World Peace

You can begin changing your corner of the world Today.

This includes all that is in and on land, water and air. 

Your life is a journey that contains many journeys. As you advance on your Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai journey you find yourself connecting more deeply with the piece of universal energy to which Usui Sensei connected and having a deeper connection with the true universal you.  <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai > 

You might notice that sometimes I write Shihan and other times teacher. Shihan translates as either teacher of high standing or master instructor.  While no one can master universal energy, after many hours in classes completing all four levels, and hours of practice a person can be a master instructor.


The way your life unfolds is in your hands, through which universal unconditional love and harmony can flow once your pathway has been opened by a qualified Shihan of a style honoring the original Usui Reiki Ryoho . 

Learning any style of Usui Reiki Ryoho requires time, and each level is important.  I take time in classes to allow students to know through experience, the depth of the healing of the universal vibrations of love and harmony flowing through them. There are countless forms of energy; Mikao Usui connected/opened to a piece of universal energy/the source.   

In the hours in classes I introduce each student to filling and surrounding him or herself with Balance and Harmony.  Balance attracts harmony, harmony attracts balance and what is in balance and with harmony heals. Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are often the healthiest and attract positive? <Classes in Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reii Kai>

As your awareness expands through the hours in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes and practicing exercises, peace, tranquility, and joy can become your life’s internal GPS.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai>


During healing sessions the life receiving lays or sits clothed while Universal energy/Usui Reiki: 

Those receiving may not see Usui Reiki or be able to touch it, but she or he can experience the positive effects of the healing balance and harmony flowing to mind, body, and spirit together. 

Imagine being wrapped in a warm healing blanket of balance and harmony as pure Usui Reiki flows to wherever is needed. <healing sessions>



All styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that embrace the essence in which Mikao Usui created are complementary to other positive healing modalities. Many licensed healing professionals add Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai into their practice to help their patients by giving that extra beyond their techniques, surgery prescribed medications <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai> 

Imprints of experiences and the feelings they create exist in all of us.  If the imprints are negative the subconscious will not easily accept positive ideas.  My original guided meditations, and healing sessions can help you to replace negative imprints with the positive that is best for you at that junction in time. Through Gendai Reiki-ho, Komyo Reki Kai, and my Guided Meditations you can take your foot off the subconscious brake and improve the quality of life.   <healing sessions & guied medtations>

You might hear or read the words describing Usui Reiki Ryoho, but when you experience, feel the vibrations, you can know the true meaning within the spiritual practice/healing art that Usui Sensei created. The multiple in-person classes for each level allow you to totally submerge into the universal vibrations of love & harmony. 

2020 was a year of challenges. This is a paragraph from one of my monthly newsletters that I send to my students, “While you are doing what is best to keep others and yourself safe, take time throughout the day to focus on positive things. Disasters happen, but disasters do not define our lives unless we allow them to. 2020 © Shihan Roberta R. Barnes 

With COVID many things changed. Nevertheless, Doi-Sensei, Hyakuten- Sensei and the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (society Mikao Usui founded in Japan) have made it clear that Usui Reiki Ryoho cannot be learned from a book, through DVDs, online, or over distance.

In styles that honor Usui Reiki Ryoho, there is an unbroken succession of Teachers/Shihans, linked by the sacred touch of empowerment/initiation (attunement), directly back to the founder Usui Sensei. <What is Usui Reiki Ryoho> 

Vibrations are all around, above, beneath and within us.  You create vibrations with all of your actions and thoughts.

The piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki is the healing vibrations of universal unconditional love and harmony that requires a body to flow through whose pathway has been opened by a qualified Shihan (teacher of high standing/master instructor).

 th many things in life, Reiki myths have been created; the factual history coming directly from Japan is much more interesting. <10 common Reiki myths>

Usui Reiki is light, in its true nature it is pure light”. translation international © 1999

Usui Reiki forms a restorative healing rhythm within the entire life form Integrated healing at its best! 

Usui Reiki is a piece of universal energy; it is never out of stock, does not have office hours, and does not stop working on holidays.  <What is Usui Reiki>

Gendai Reiki-ho has a much deeper meaning than the English translation ofModern Reiki method for healing’

Hiroshi Doi Sensei, founder/president of Gendai Reiki-ho describes it as, nothing fishy, nothing odd, nothing difficult. international © 1999  


Usui Reiki cannot be measured, manipulated, or touched, but it is as real as the air you breathe and the gravity that keeps your feet on the ground. You may not be able to see the force of a magnet that attracts things, but the attraction cannot be denied.

Gravity does not require symbols to bring anything down once it has been thrown into the air. Universal energy does not require Reiki symbols for it to flow. <What is Usui Reiki>

Styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, such as Gendai Reiki-h & Komyo Reiki Kai,

are integrated healing

that improve the quality of life. 


Integrated healing is not a new idea, as we see in Plato’s wordsThe cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole”.   <Learning Gendai reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

In classes I help you to recognize the importance of the present moment.  Your life is a collection of present moments; when each moment is in-balance and with harmony health and happiness naturally follow.Shihan Roberta R. Barnes ©2004

“There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path”.– Buddha

You are much more than the atoms that make up your physical body. 

Exercises in my classes and my guided meditation help you to replace the habit of looking for problems, with seeing possibilities.

When you are in the habit of looking beyond a problem to see the solution life changes gears; listening to my Guided meditation Finding Your Solutions can help you to get in the habit of switching gears.  

The first guided meditation on Finding Your Solutions guides you into meditation.  The second guided meditation helps you to form the habit of looking beyond problems, enabling you to see possibilities.  <Meditation & Beyond>

An example of the power within the stillness is after years of meditation and then 3 years of daily disciplined Zen meditations Mikao Usui attained enlightenment, opened to an actual piece of Universal Energy, and created his original Usui Reiki Ryoho.

<Meditation & Beyond>

The natural abilities you were born with can sometimes become overshadowed by opinions of others, experiences or technology. 

You can regain those abilities by uncovering your true universal self in the classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai coming directly from Japan, or through one or more of my original guided meditations Reiki healing session package. 

Enjoy the simple healing balance and harmony of the profound original spiritual practice/healing art that Mikao Usui founded in 1922.

2013 center summer 2Classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and healing sessions are offered in my healing studio in Maine in all seasons.

Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice/healing art brings Reiki healing and learning in Maine the healing light of balance and harmony regardless of the weather.

Usui Reiki is like the sun that shines, plants that grow, birds that fly, and snow that falls from the sky without any symbols or human interaction. 

Universal energy is all around us, but the vibrations of unconditional love and harmony from the highest dimensions require a body to flow through in which a pathway has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan. <learning Gendai Reiki-ho–Komyo Reiki Kai>

As Hippocrates said,  “The physician treats, but nature heals.”  

Today there are many different froms of energy, some good and some not good. Usui Reiki being a piece of universal energy/the source is extremely good,  Usui Reiki Ryoho as Usui Sensei created is a journey to create a  natural state of Wellbeing that is best of the life receiving at that junction in time. .
