Reiki and Reiki TUMMO™
What is Reiki?
Reiki consists of two Japanese words: Rei and Ki. Rei means universal and Ki, also referred to as Chi, means vital energy. So, Reiki means vital energy from the universe. In general, Reiki is a technique of channelling universal vital energy to oneself and others.
Reiki is not something magical. The basic principle on how Reiki energy heals is very similar to how healing works in acupuncture. We know that every living being has energy within and around the body to be alive. This energy is called Chi (vital energy) or Ki and it is vital for the physical body to exist. The physical body usually has problems because the energy does not flow properly. By stimulating the energy to flow properly, the natural ability of the body to heal itself functions again, and the body will recover. Reiki healing stimulates the energy to flow properly and cleanse the energy within and around the body to speed up the healing process. In the Kirlian photos below, you can see the energy around the fingertip of a patient before and after Reiki healing. Kirlian photos are not simulation photos like aura photos. The Kirlian camera has been used as a Radiology equipment.

What is Reiki TUMMO™?
Reiki TUMMO™ is a term derived from two words: Reiki and TUMMO. Reiki is Japanese for vital energy from the universe and TUMMO is Tibetan for inner fire. TUMMO refers to the Kundalini energy, the hidden power within everyone. It is a coiled form of energy that usually lies dormant at the lower part of the body of every human. Kundalini energy is crucial for cleansing and for advanced spiritual growth. However, it has to be awakened first and this may be difficult to accomplish.
Reiki TUMMO™ is an energy channeling technique that deals with both of these energies: the energy from the universe and the Kundalini energy. The energy from the universe is effective for healing and improving your health. Kundalini energy is indispensable for cleansing your energy body. This is the most powerful combination of energies that can help you to improve your health and your spirituality, giving you a chance to grow spiritually very rapidly. More detailed information about Reiki TUMMO™ can be found in Master Irmansyah's book: REIKI TUMMO: An Effective Technique for Health and Happiness.
A lot of known Reiki traditions in the world are based on the Usui tradition that was discovered by Master Usui from Japan in the early 1900’s. Originally Usui did not teach Reiki as a healing modality. He taught Reiki as a method to attain enlightenment. Through the use of the Kundalini, Reiki TUMMO™ brings Reiki back to its intended purpose.
For those who are interested in physical healing, Reiki TUMMO™ offers an energy system that combines all the elements of Usui Reiki, plus the powerful addition of the Kundalini energy to enhance the results on your chakras and energy bodies.For those who are interested in advancement of their spiritual growth, this is a complete system to fulfil your ultimate destiny. For those who are interested in becoming more loving, open and connected to God, The True Source, The Universe, Creator, by whatever name, the levels of Reiki TUMMO™ are the preliminary stages of a profound system of personal and spiritual development.
Reiki TUMMO™ is not about how to become a healer. On the contrary, in Reiki TUMMO™ you learn and realize that the best healer is always the Divine Source, True Source, our Beloved Creator. In Reiki TUMMO™ you learn that the blessing of the Divine Source is the mightiest power. If you can just let this blessing work on you and through you, you will gain unlimited benefits. By having this understanding in energy channeling, you will then be able to let the blessing of the Divine Source help you in everything you need, not only in your daily life but also for your spiritual growth. In Reiki TUMMO™, you will not simply hear or read about this, but as you work with your heart, you will have a chance to allow Divine Source to work through you. The heart is the only part of you that can really be connected to the Divine Source, receive the blessing of Divine Source and let the blessing of Divine Source work on you.
Although Reiki TUMMO™ is an energy channeling technique, the essence of Reiki TUMMO™ is about:
- Understanding more of the blessing of the Divine Source
- Understanding more about your heart, as the heart is the key to your connection to the Divine Source
- Being connected to your heart and connecting to the Divine Source through the heart to feel peace, calmness, joy and happiness in your daily life
- Being connected to your True Self in preparation for the real spiritual journey, as the real spiritual journey is about your True Self getting closer to the Divine Source (Source of the True Self)
By practicing Reiki TUMMO™ not only can you expect to be healthier, able to channel energy to heal yourself and others, to have more peace,calmness, happiness and joy in your daily life, but also to progress spiritually. First, you can be connected better to your heart. Then, you will be able to be within your heart in your daily life and achieve real understanding from the heart about the Divine Source and the blessing of the Divine Source. This enables you to receive the blessing of the Divine Source as the mightiest power to help you to progress unlimitedly.
So, if you consider yourself to be someone who:
- Wants to be healthier.
- Wants to have more peace, calmness, happiness and joy in your daily life.
- Wants to be able to channel energy to heal yourself and/or others.
- Wants to be closer to the Divine Source by connecting to and opening your spiritual heart.
- Wants to attain true spiritual progress/growth.
then you can gain many benefits from Reiki TUMMO™.
Cleansing, Open Heart, and Spiritual Growth
An important step for spiritual growth is cleansing. When your energy body is cleaner, your energy vibration is higher, thus your spiritual consciousness is advancing. If you are only using the universal Reiki energy for cleansing, the energy will cleanse from the top down as divine energy starts flowing into your body from the crown chakra. However, as you still have blockages along your body, there will be less and less universal energy that can reach the lower part of your body. It will take years before the universal energy can do a complete cleansing on the lowest chakra, the base chakra. So, if we only use Reiki energy, the cleansing is only more effective in the upper part of the body. On the other hand, if you are relying on the Kundalini energy only, as the center of the Kundalini energy is your perineum, located between your rectum and your sexual organ at the level of your lowest major chakra, the cleansing will occur from the bottom up. It is more effective on the lower part of the body. And similar to what happens in the cleansing with universal energy, it will take many years before the Kundalini energy can do a complete cleansing on the crown chakra. However, working with Reiki TUMMO™, these two very powerful energies will work in synergy giving you the simultaneous and thorough cleansing all your main chakras. Thus, you can get all of your main chakras cleansed in a very short time compared to using only universal energy or Kundalini energy.
The combined and synchronized cleansing in Reiki TUMMO™ will ensure the fastest and the best cleansing processes you can experience in one life time, thus giving you the best help in cleansing and opening your heart at the center of your chest, the key of your true spiritual growth.
The History of Reiki TUMMO™
Most Reiki traditions taught in the world are based on the Usui tradition. This Usui tradition was rediscovered by Master Mikao Usui (1865 - 1926) from Japan in 1914.
Reiki TUMMO™ is NOT a tradition based on another Reiki tradition. Reiki TUMMO™ was taught to Master Irmansyah Effendi by a non-physical spiritual teacher. When the core of his Kundalini reached his crown chakra, he had many and diverse spiritual experiences almost every day of his life. With The Blessing and Help of the Divine Source, he met with various non-physical spiritual teachers who lovingly helped and guided him through different meditation sessions. Although this may seems odd, Master Irmansyah is inviting you to ask your Inner Heart, the part of you that knows the real truth beyond any perception of the brain, to realize about this truth. When you have attended our Inner Heart workshop, you will be able to use your Inner Heart to feel and realize many truths directly.
Master Irmansyah Effendi started teaching Reiki TUMMO™ in Indonesia to the public in 1998. Reiki TUMMO™ is now being taught in many different countries around the world. Reiki TUMMO™ is not a "stand alone" lesson as it is a part of a program of spiritual learning. Please see YOGA Curriculum.
Although the name Reiki is very familiar, if you look closely, Reiki TUMMO is quite different from other Reiki traditions. Yes, you will be channeling energy, but the similarities to other Reiki traditions stops there. The main lessons of Reiki TUMMO™ will be about feeling your heart, connecting to your heart, being in your heart, and surrendering to the Divine Source by letting the blessing of the Divine Source work on you and through you. These lessons prepare you for the intermediate learning. At the intermediate levels beyond Reiki TUMMO™, you will learn about the journey of your soul and spirit. You will also learn and be able to use your Inner Heart, the spark of the Divine Source within you, the all knowing part of you, the real guide within, the only part of you that really knows the will of the Divine Source. You will then be able to attain your higher consciousness as soul and spirit to understand more about the real purpose and goal of life and about the Divine Source. Then, at the advanced levels, you will learn how to let the blessing of the Divine Source work on you to fulfill all of your needs, to take you to your ultimate and final destiny-to return home and attain Yoga!.
