Natural Healing Energy for Mind, Body & Spirit

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

You are more than your body.  This is why the original spiritual healing art Mikao Usui created brings healing balance and harmony to mind, body & spirit or the whole life as needed.

Mikao Usui said, “It is love, harmony and healing energy. © international 2002    This healing energy is a unique piece of universal energy.  <What is Reiki > 

Everything is ENERGY 

ENERGY is Everything

Regardless of which way you say it, the universal vibrations of love & harmony flowing with Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai bring balance and harmony to all within mind, body & spirit.  What is in balance and surrounded with harmony heals.

This healing universal energy automatically goes to the core of what is causing symptoms in mind, body or spirit.  Once at the core it begins or enhances healing to create wellbeing in the whole person or other life form receiving. The healing balance & hamonry goes wherever it is needed in the whole life including the energy field (aura).  <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 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.” 

No tissues are manipulated, unless the practitioner is also a licensed medical professional in another area.  The hands of a Reiki teacher or Reiki practitioner feel vibrations in his or her hands.  Those vibrations show where balance & harmony are needed.  Hands then rest on or above a non-invasive area need at that junction in time.   Each life form is unique, and each healing is unique. <healing sessions>

Side effects of Gendai REiki-ho & Komyo REiki Kai are health and happiness.  Less pain medication is needed and things such as fractured bones heal faster and better than expected.

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 can improve–sometimes in unexpected ways.

Universal vibrations of love and harmony bring balance & harmony to any imbalances in all of mind, body and spirit.  When combined with or following medical treatments/therapies or surgery the receiver can heal faster, better and takes less pain medication.  <Simple, yet profound>

Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai each embraces the essence of the original spiritual practice/ healing art, Usui Reiki Ryoho, 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> 

In-persoin classes in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai,, students learn how to use that key to weave the universal vibrations of love and harmony into all areas of life without symbols or material objects. There is nothing difficult if a person can trust in energy that cannot be directed and most cannot see; you can connect to the light of Reiki within at any time and in any place,

You can read about something or watch a documentary, but to know anything requires experience. Attending in-person classes and being guided through exercises during the hours in classes, in any style of Usui Reiki Ryoho, 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. < Schedule Reiki classes>

Gravity does not need symbols or any matter/material item for it to happen; neither does the piece of universal energy/the source we have come to call Usui Reiki.   


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.


During a healing session the one receiving lays or, sits fully clothed (except for footwear) while the gentle noninvasive healing vibrations flow to where is best at that present moment repairing, building and strengthening as needed.  Sometimes only one session is required for the needed healing, unless you are having them for continued maintenance of mind, body and spirit.

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

Stress can lead to illnesses. This piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki flows to what is causing the imbalance called stress.  The reason for stress might even be from past forgotten events. My guided meditations combined with a Usui Reiki healing session can even melt stress caused by past events

While you are becoming the observed and the observer Usui Reiki flows to the core of what is causing the stress.  At the core healing happens at a unique level and shines out healing as it goes, resulting in Well-being.

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.  <Scheduled classes> 

Through the hours in Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai classes you can experience the difference between harmonic and inharmonic vibrations, experience the healing of self-growth,  expand your awareness, and uncover the true you.  <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho/ Komyo Reiki Kai>  

You can hear or read about styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, but to experience is to know.  You can experience the healing universal energy during Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai in-person classes.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai

Each person, or other life form, is more than his or her body.  Vibrations from the past can impact you today.   My original Guided meditations into the past have helped many people develop harmony with past events, uncover what subconsciously had been holding them back, and uncover skills tucked away in the subconscious. 

When giving in-person guided meditations I begin with an advanced Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho technique; this one-minute technique brings the balance and harmony that can help a person relax and listen to me guiding him or her into the past, <healing sessions>

This month, May 2023, I am offering my Down the Rabbit Hole guided meditation workshop you can see details on the workshop under scheduled Reiki classes on the Classes and workshop page.  <Scheduled Guided Meditation Workshops>

Details on the Down the Rabbit Hole workshop are also listed on my Meditation Benefits are not what you think page.  <Meditation Benefits are not what you think  


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 practice 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 has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan and he or she steps aside to allow the piece of universal energy of the highest dimension to heal as is best at that junction in time, possible can shine through from impossible. © Roberta R. Barnes 

How I teach is best described by my students below 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 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 deep connection with the true you.  <Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai training> 

You might notice that sometimes I write Shihan and other times teacher. Shihan translates as either teacher of high standing or master instructor, not Reiki Master.  Mikao Usui never claimed to be the master of the spiritual healing art he created/founded, and no one can master universal energy.

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 Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan. 

Learning any style of Usui Reiki Ryoho requires time.  Each level is important so I take time in classes to allow students to know, through experience the healing depth of the universal vibrations of love and harmony flowing through them. There are countless forms of energy, but Mikao Usui connected/opened to a piece of universal energy/the source.  <Classes in Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reii Kai>

In the hours in classes I introduce students 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 the positive?

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. 

During healing sessions the one 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).

As with 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;

improving the quality of life in all areas. 


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

Experience natural healing energy

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 through exercises in Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho classes or through one or more of my original guided meditations Reiki healing session package. 

Join with the many people around the world who are enjoying the simple healing balance and harmony of the profound healing 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 similar to 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 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. .
