Natural Healing Energy for Mind, Body & Spirit

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


Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai each embraces the essence of the original Japanese spiritual practice/healing art, Usui Reiki Ryoho, in which Mikao Usui introduced the key to health and happiness. Through Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai in-person classes you are shown how to use that key to weave the original essence of balance and harmony into all areas of life.


The original spiritual healing art, Usui Reiki Ryoho, treats the whole person or other life form. The universal vibrations of love and harmony bring balance and harmony to where is needed within the mind, body, and spirit of the life receiving. <What is Reiki>

This piece of universal energy flows to the core of what is causing symptoms instead of masking the symptoms. Once at the core healing begins or is enhanced to create wellbeing in the whole person or other life form receiving.   <healing sessions>

Everything is ENERGY

ENERGY is Everything

Regardless of which way you say it, at the core of all cells is energy.  There are countless forms of energy.  Usui Reiki is not a form of energy, it is a piece of universal energy/the source. <What is Reiki>

The vibrations of love and harmony create the balance & harmony that is needed in the whole person or other life form; this includes the energy field (aura), meridian lines, chakras, light body centers, and more.  Universal energy is infinite and without measure.

 What is in balance and with harmony heals in the way that is best at that junction in time, creating natural Wellbeing. <simple yet profound>


        The essence of the original Usui Reiki Ryoho as Mikao Usui created is Spiritual.
the healing that follows in mind, body, and spirit is a byproduct. 


Universal energy does not discriminate.  Styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, as created by Mikao Usui, can bring healing balance and harmony to all people, animals, birds and other life forms.  <healing sessions>




You can read about something or watch something being done, but to know requires experience. 

In-person in classes in which you are guided through hours of exercises, techniques and meditations give you the needed experience for knowledge. 


Reiki method is designed to attain a state of bliss by an awakening the true self, edit peaceful mind as taught by Usui Sensei through a utilization of Usui Reiki Ryoho that leads to a happy life. During in-person classes students are guided to weave the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony into all areas of life. Moving through the four levels you can come to know your true universal self and innate skills.  Students also receive a detailed manual for each level in each style that is only available to my students   <learning Gendai Reiki-ho o and Komyo Reiki Kai> 



Some of my recent students wrote:

 I love the fact that Reiki can be woven into your entire life. I use the techniques and practices at work and at home.  You will definitely feel a sense of peace and calm if you practice.” – Cindy

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

I, Roberta R. Barnes, teach, practice, and live Gendai Reiki-ho in the essence in which in 2002 I learned in-person directly from its founder Hiroshi Doi. In 1993 Doi Sensei joined the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai, the society in Japan that Usui Sensei founded. 

 I, Roberta R. Barnes, also teach, practice, and live Komyo Reiki Kai, which in 2003 I learned in-person directly from its founder Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto, 

Doi Sensei and Hyakuten Sensei each has only two Japanese Shihans (master instructor/teacher of high standing) between himself and Usui Sensei, I show my energy and technique lineages in each style in my copyright training manuals that I only give to my students; that students know that what I teach came directly from Japan.

The training manuals are a combination of my Shihans’ manuals (in English) and the notes I took in their classes.  Like my Shihans, I do not include all exercises I give in classes in my manuals but I do include a detailed history as I learned in-person from each pf my Japanese Shihans who each learned in-person from their Japanese Shihans.

 I am honored to have the lineages that I do, but most importantly I honor Doi-Sensei and Hyakuten Sensei by teaching in the essence in which each of these Shihans taught me. My teachings embrace the original spiritual healing art as Mikao Usui created.   <read more>  


Gendai Reiki Ho is the way to live your life healthily, peacefully, and happily in resonance with the Universe” international © Hiroshi Doi 2002


The healing through Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai can help you step away from haunting traumas of all types, increase mental clarity and emotional balance, 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


As Mikao Usui said, all people and other life forms have an inner healer.  Nevertheless, that inner healer sometimes needs help, and the original spiritual healing art Usui Sensei created can provide that help

Our life force energy, our Ki/Qi energy, or energy within our meridian lines can become stagnate; our inner healer can malfunction. Exercises in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai can restore the flow of energies and get our inner healer back on track. 


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, increase mental clarity, and uncover the true universal you.  <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho/ Komyo Reiki Kai>  


 Each level is important, and requires time to learn in classes and practice after classes.  I offer students enough time in classes to allow students to know through experience how to resonate with the universal vibrations of love and harmony flowing through him or her.  

Styles that honor the original Usui Reiki Ryoho as 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.


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


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 gentle noninvasive healing vibrations of universal 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>




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. 




Each person/life form is unique, and each Usui Reiki healing is unique. Side effects of styles that embrace Usui Reiki Ryoho as created, such as Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo  Reiki Kai, are health and happiness; healing often happens faster and better than expected.  <healing sessions>


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


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


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

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 the quality of life can improve in unexpected ways.

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.” 


Your life is a journey that contains many journeys. As you advance on your Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai journey you can find yourself connecting more deeply with the piece of universal energy to which Usui Sensei connected and having a deeper connection with the true you.  Discovering the true you is one the great treasures if life.    <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.  No one can master universal energy, but after many hours in classes completing all four levels, and many hours of practice a person can be a master instructor. <what is Reiki> 


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..


In the hours in classes in each level I guide students through exercises that focus on the balance and harmony created by the piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki  Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are often the healthiest and attract positive?


As a person’s awareness expands through the hours of in=person classes in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai and practice exercises after classes, peace, tranquility, and joy can become his or her life’s internal GPS.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai>



Experience natural healing energy

During Usui Reiki Ryoho healing sessions, the life receiving lays or sits, clothed if a person.   

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.  Common side-effects are health and happiness. 


Imagine being wrapped in the calmness of a warm healing blanket of balance and harmony as pure Usui Reiki flows to wherever is needed. When added before, during or after medical treatments patients have found that less pain medication is needed, and things such as fractured bones and cuts heal faster and better than expected . <healing sessions>


Experience natural healing energy

You might hear or read the words describing Usui Reiki Ryoho, but when you experience and feel the vibrations, you can know the true meaning within the original spiritual practice/healing art that Usui Sensei created. 

In-person classes for each level allow you to totally submerge into the universal vibrations of love & harmony. 


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

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. <what is Gendai Reiki-ho) 

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 Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai 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.  

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

Anxiety and worry in everyday life, and unreleased past trauma can cause physical illnesses; even allergic reactions can be triggered by stress.  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.  Through classes you can regain those abilities by uncovering your true universal self in the classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai that come directly from Japan.  My original guided meditations and Reiki healing session package also can help you to uncover and explore the abilities hidden within you. .

Happiness can be right outside your window <read more> 

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, material objects  or human directions.   

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.”  

There are many different forms of energy. Usui Reiki is an actual piece of universal energy/the source.   Usui Reiki Ryoho as Usui Sensei created is different than other healing modalities; it can create a natural state of Wellbeing that is best of the life receiving at that junction in time. .
