Japanese Reiki classes & meditation

The importance of good health is evident.  Gendai Reiki ho, Komyo Reiki Kai, Healing Sessions, Guided Meditation, and Healing Herbs take center stage in creating and maintaining Wellbeing in Mind, Body and Spirit. 


Take a 15 minute break to be guided into relaxation in my Bluebird guided Meditation. This allows you to step away from the outside world and turn your attention to the positive within you. <click here its free>


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

Your life is but a collect of present moments.


Usui Reiki is the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony that flows to the core of atoms in need and then shines outward healing at a unique level that creates Wellbeing.  Usui Sensei created an “original method to achieve person perfection” © international 1999  <What is Reiki>


The first question everyone asks is, What style of Reiki do you practice or teach?

I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) practice and teach Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, often called Japanese Reiki. Each of these styles was created in Japan by a Japanese Shihan (master instructor/teacher of high standing) and  each embraces the quintessence of Usui Sensei’s (honorable teacher) original spiritual practice/healing art as practiced in Japan in the 1920s. <read more>

Different styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho are practiced in different ways.  < What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>


The second question everyone asks isWho did you directly study under, and most importantly do you teach and practice as you learned from him or her? 

I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) was blessed to be able to complete the highest level allowing me to teach, directly under Hiroshi Doi who founded Gendai Reiki-ho, and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto who founded Komyo Reiki Kai.

I respect each of these Japanese Shihan’s knowledge; each has only two Japanese Shihans between himself and Mikao Usui.  I also respect each of their dedication to keeping the piece of universal energy and the practice of Usui Reiki Ryoho pure.   Therefore,  I teach each style as the creator of each style taught me in 2002 and 2003.  <Shihan Roberta R. Barnes>


Gendai Reiki ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho created in Japan.  Each can be woven into your life in today’s world while embracing the way in which Mikao Usui created his original Spiritual practice/Healing art .

In Gendai Reiki-ho and komyo Reiki kai classes you can learn how to harness your full potnetial <learning Japanese Usui Reiki >


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


Mind, body and spirit are not separate from each other; what affects one affects the others. Usui Reiki flows to all together so that well-being of the whole naturally happens, which  improves the quality of life. Being in a state of well-being prior to an accident or illness helps you heal faster and better than expected. <Healing sessions>


Usui Reiki in its pure form does not mask symptoms; it flows to the cause of the illness, injury, and symptoms to begin and speed healing in mind, body and spirit together. Being complementary to other healing modalities, those injuries/illnesses treated by a licensed healing professional can heal faster and better than expected when Usui Reiki is added into the healing process.



Your body is 73% to 90% water. Water is one of the most receptive elements resulting in water’s molecules changing to replicate the vibrations surrounding them. Imagine when universal unconditional love and harmony is flowing through your body and surrounding molecules that are not in balance.  <healing sessions> 


Your life force energy, your Ki/Qi  and energy in meridian lines can become stagnate; your inner healer can malfunction. Usui Reiki can restore the flow of energies.   <What is Reiki, What is Usui Reiki ,What is Usui Reiki Ryoho>       


Usui Reiki forms a restorative healing rhythm within the whole life form. . .  integrated healing at its best! 


Each person is unique and each illness or injury is unique. Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai honor that uniqueness.  In classes you are shown how mind, body and spirit heal together to form well-being, and are guided to uncover the true universal you.<becoming a Gendai Reiki-ho practitioner>


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


When studying Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai you are shown the key to health and happiness in the first class of Shoden (first teachings) level.  

As you learn to weave Usui Reiki into your life it helps you to be more harmonious and improve the quality of your life.

Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are the healthiest and happiest?  Happier people are usually more sociable, productive, energetic, more likely to be in satisfying relationships, and generally live longer.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai>


How I teach is best described by my students here and on 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 student 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


Continuing Education ProviderI am an Approved Provider by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body work (NCBTMB) for continuing education credits. After completing any level in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai you can give your client’s that extra without changing the way you already do massages.  Also, in each of the first 3 levels you are shown a technique that you add into your sessions for extra healing when appropriate. 


Gendai Reiki-ho hasa much deeper meaning than the English translation of ‘Modern Reikimethod for healing’Hiroshi Doi Sensei, founder of Gendai Reiki-ho describes it as, nothing fishy, nothing odd, nothing difficult. international ©  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

Natural healing is not a quick fix that covers up symptoms, blocks pain receptors, and ignores the causeUsui Reiki Ryoho’s original purposes are to bring balance and harmony to all atoms in need in mind, body and spirit together, in people or other life forms, which is the key to health and happiness/well-being.  <healing sessions> 


Only positive comes from styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that honor the quintessence of Mikao Usui‘s original spiritual practice/healing art. <what is Reiki>


The spiritual practice Usui Sensei created does not discriminate; it is for all people, animals, birds, and other life forms.   Usui Reiki flows to mind, body, spirit and energy field, including chakras, light body centers, etc.,  in all life forms, 



As with many things in life, different people say different things.  My sources are from Shihans, including 2 Japanese Shihans I studied directly under, with a close lineages to Mikao Usui.  <most common Reiki myths>



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



Universal energy does not have office hours, take holidays off or have complicated rituals.  <learnng Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai> 



Just as gravity does not require symbols to bring anything down once it has been thrown into the air, Usui Reiki does not require Reiki symbols for it to flow.  At the same time, if the higher self of any person or other life form does not want Usui Reiki to flow to him or her, it will not flow–the universe allows free will. 


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.<what is Reiki>


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

are integrated healing at is best;

improving the quality of life in all areas. 


Integrated healing is not a new idea, as we see in Plato’s words–“The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole”.   

What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you now/this 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

Think for a moment-Science has computer virus prevention and flue virus prevention; Usui Reiki Ryoho is the prevention for negative thought virus that causes physical, mental and spiritual illnesses. <what is Usui Reiki


Once you let go the mind clutter alleging that healing must be complicated, you see that Usui Reiki Ryoho is profound.  Universal love and harmony is flowing through you after your first empowerment (attunement), even though 3 are given in each levelA Japanese Usui Reiki technique, as practiced in Japan in the 1920s,is shown in the first level allowing you to move beyond suggested hand positions and weave Usui Reiki naturally into all areas of your life.    <Read more>


Experience natural healing energy

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

               Through the meditations you learn in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, my meditation classes and my original guided meditations you can find answers in the stillness; you can feel you own life’s rhythm, find your solutions and unlimited possibilities.



With time some of the natural abilities you were born with can become overshadowed by opinions of others, experiences  or technology. 

You can discover possibilities when you look beyond problems; do not ignore problems just look beyond them.  The first program on Finding Your Solutions guides you into meditate and the next helps you to form the habit of looking beyond problems enabling you to see possibilities.  <Meditation & Beyond>


You can regain those abilities through the exercises and meditations shown in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes, daily meditation as shown in meditations classes or through one or more of my original guided meditations.  As you go deeper into the stillness you find yourself going beyond the ordinary levels of consciousness. <guided meditation and Reiki healing packages> 


My original guided meditations in private sessions or in my workshops help you to discover your inner selfMy Down the Rabbit Hole is a 2 1/2 hour workshop allowing you to see how far down the rabbit hole you want to go.   <guided meditation & beyond>  


Being fully present in the moment and letting go of stress, mind clutter and outside chatter can do more for you then most any gadget   <how to melt stress>



Once you let go the mind clutter allocating that healing must be complicated, you can see that what is simple is also profound.  You can see the amazing healing of balance and harmony.  <read more about learning Japanese Reiki>

2013 center summer 2As you can see in the photographs the classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and healing sessions are offered in my healing studio in Maine.  You can also see that Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice/healing art brings the healing light of balance and harmony in every seasonReiki healing and learning in Maine .

Usui Reiki is much like the sun that shines, trees that grow and snow that falls from the sky without 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; a body 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.”
