Lineage.



Dr. Mikao Usui

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi

Mrs. Hawayo Takata

Phyllis Lei Furumoto

Carrel Farmer

Leah Smith

William Lee Rand

Ashanna Solaris

Harmony Grace Elohim





As you may see, when you look these people up on-line, William Rand has a wide and complex lineage, having been attuned by 5 differerent Reiki Masters. I am in the process of finding out how exactly I should count my lineage, through William Rand's first Reiki Master attunement, through his lineage closest to Usui or through the strand that includes how I was taught also Reiki I and Reiki II. This lineage shown above is the lineage I chose that would include the way I was taught Reiki I and Reiki II, the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage. If I was to count my lineage through William Rand's first Reiki Master attunement, it would be:





Dr. Mikao Usui

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi

Mrs. Hawayo Takata

Iris Ishikura

Arthur Robertson

Diane McCumber / Marlene Shilke

William Lee Rand

Ashanna Solaris

Harmony Grace Elohim





The shortest way to count my lineage would be the one below. I don't count it this way because I am not familiar with how these Reiki Teachers taught.





Dr. Mikao Usui

Kan'ishi Taketomi / Dr. Chujiro Hayashi
|                                   |
Kimono Koyama / Chiyoko Yamaguchi
|                                   |
Hiroshi Doi / Hyakuten Inamoto

William Lee Rand

I am currently in the process of further research and hope to learn everything I can learn about Reiki from everyone in my lineage who have gone before me on this path, what they taught and how they taught.
