Reiki tsm A new dimension of practice

Reiki tsm


Reiki tsm (The Secret Method) has arisen from the recognition of a framework that is pre-existing within the Reiki practice. The acronym tsm is derived from the words of the founder Mikao Usui, as recorded on his memorial stone. He referred to the basic precepts of his method as 'the secret method of inviting happiness, the cure for all illnesses'.

tsm is not a new form of practice. tsm is a process of accessing teachings already existing within the Usui System. These teachings will exist in any form of Reiki Practice that has deviated little from the basic Usui foundations.

Hawayo Takata translated the Japanese practice founded by Mikao Usui (The Usui System of Reiki Healing/Usui Shiki Ryoho) into a form that western audiences received and commonly identified with as a healing practice.

A spiritual component, the connection to a larger dimension of existence, was acknowledged but the focus on the healing art served to almost obscure this facet of the practice. tsm refocuses that spiritual component with the unrecognised teachings of 'the secret method'.

Reiki tsm is not only for those in the practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho, nor is it only for those who have taken the Master level. Mikao Usui gave his method to all of humanity. The secret teachings are integrated with the method, and simply accessed through tsm.

Usui Shiki Ryoho: Aspects (in pink), and Elements

The form of Usui Shiki Ryoho received from Hawayo Takata was given a clear description by Phyllis Lei Furumoto, as Takata's successor. This description is framed in terms called the 'Four aspects' and the 'Nine Elements of the Form'.

This clearly defined form served to limit distortions of the form of practice, retaining the frameworks that I have identified as tsm.

Any variations in tsm from the Furumoto description are intrinsic to the hidden framework itself. That facet of the Reiki practice commonly identified as a healing practice, remains as it as always been, a valid and useful side effect of a practice that has also been described as a 'human development system' (Furumoto 1995).

This human development aspect of the system holds the knowing of who and what we are as beings experiencing the human dimension of existence.
The Usui method is a complete method. It addresses the nature of body, of mind, and also the great mystery of what it means to be human.
Mark Ruge
In tsm the process of coming into the knowing of the nature of 'who we truly are' is termed 'embodying Presence', which is the ability to hold Presence in the 'now moment'. This ability is an opening to a personal awakening process.

Embodying Presence is developed through the simple hands-on practice, through the practice of being present in the hands-on treatment process.

The development point in the practice that leads into the teachings of tsm arises out of second degree practice and is facilitated via an Advanced Second Degree programme.

This programme, in its later stages, includes some limited information formerly received only in master level training.

The teaching level (Master Level) is thereby re-focused primarily on the intent to teach, to hold and transmit the form of practice, and not for a perceived extra healing capability.
