Over time, Usui Reiki has changed the form and energy of reiki to include the Dai Ko Myo symbol, certain hand positions, and meditation practices. Instead, this attunement goes back to the original reiki energy found at Mount Kurama (pictured above) that Usui rediscovered. In my experience Usui Reiki feels heavier while Original Reiki feels like a joyful, peaceful, gentle yet powerful energy. After running this energy, I find that I am more peaceful and cheerful overall.
The Original Reiki system has the 3 symbols usually taught in Usui Reiki 2 and it includes 4 attunements.
This comes with a PDF manual and a certificate.
