|Reiki Water Ideas - One of the first Reiki exercises I learned that didn't involve direct healing with a person, was using Reiki on your drinking water. I think that most Reiki practitioners learn something like this.|
||Your Life As A Movie - Think of your life being like a big movie. Of course you are the main actor. You most likely do not realise it but you own your version of the film. So potentially you can make any changes you like.||Click Here|
||Reiki Feng Shui - According to wikepedia.org "Feng Shui" literally translates as 'wind-water' in English." Among other things it includes the art of positioning objects within a room to improve the flow of chi or energy, thus improving the life or well being of those using this space.||Click Here|
||Has Your Reiki Energy Changed? - A Simple Re-Attunement Method - Some time ago I wrote an article on “Reiki Lineage” and how it does not guarantee that the Reiki you received from your teacher is the same energy that was shared somewhere else in your lineage.||Click
||Showing Your Appreciation - I've been presenting free content at my public site since 1996 and plan to continue to do so. It's been part of my way of interacting with the Reiki world (that's you!) To date there are over 225 pages of this content.......||Click Here|
||Rumours Concerning the 4th Reiki Symbol - Some time after I took Komyo Reiki training with Hyakuten I learned that Mrs. Yamaguchi did not teach the 4th symbol. Apparently she had not learned this from her uncle, Wasaburo Sugano, the person who gave her permission to teach.||Click
||Living the Usui Concepts - Most likely a part of your Reiki class was the presentation of what used to be called the Usui precepts or principles. Those more aware of his original document have come to know it as his concepts which he presented as 3 guidelines to daily living.||Click
|2014-04-30||Is Reiki Master Just an Attunement? - Recently a person emailed me to compliment me on my article on the validity of distant Reiki attunements. It seems he had just discovered what I and fellow Reiki masters around the world had experienced back in the mid 1990’s, that they do indeed work.||Click Here|
|2014-02-28||Reiki As Music -- In my Reiki 1 classes I get asked a variety of questions about Reiki. Most often students are trying to wrap their heads around the concept of what Reiki is. So I might suggest they think of Reiki energy as being just one type of music, making use of many, many instruments from around the world (both modern and ancient instruments).||Click Here|
|2014-01-15||Shifting Into the New Year -- The New Year is a time in many cultures when plans are laid out for the coming year for the purpose of improving or bettering oneself. Or maybe it's just that we might need a change of focus or experience.||Click Here|
|2014-03-04||Starting to Teach Reiki - Pt. 4 -- Obviously this is the most important part of the teaching process, but at this point you are now much more prepared to work with your students. While there may be many things you want to remember and carry out, do try to enjoy yourself.||Click Here|
to Teach Reiki - Pt. 3 -- When you are eager to
teach your classes
it may seem like a small matter to think about your teaching site. Most will probably teach in their home.
to Teach Reiki - Pt. 2 -- Even before
you think about advertising classes you can start putting yourself and
upcoming Reiki work out into the world, but in an energetic way.
|2013-10-04||Starting to Teach Reiki - Pt. 1 -- You’ve just completed your master level, or maybe you did so some time ago but now you are thinking about teaching Reiki. Maybe you planned this all along or someone has been urging you to teach them. So now you are wondering “What’s next?” or “How do I get started?”||Click Here|
|2013-09-11||Reiki and Nature -- Back in Toronto in the 1970’s I was very involved in yoga. During a seminar one day an instructor mentioned the benefits of sitting with my back to a tree – I think it was a willow tree – to get the benefits of the tree’s calming energies.||Click Here|
|2013-08-05||Doing The Work -- So you have had your Reiki attunements, your Reiki classes, maybe some training about symbols and other techniques; you might even be a Reiki teacher now. Has all this experience made the changes in your life you had hoped for?||Click Here|
|2013-06-30||Visualising Situations as Energy -- I find it interesting that after working with a useful technique many times over a period of 18 years, that I might still forget to call on it when I need some improved results for challenging areas in my life.||Click Here|
|2013-05-31||Life Path - Life Purpose -- If you are like me, you probably found yourself immersed in the world of Reiki without really intending to be a teacher or even a practitioner for others. That kind of commitment may have simply crept up on you.||Click Here|
|2013-05-02||Questionable Reiki Teachings -- Often when I teach a new student who has had previous Reiki training from another teacher, I end up having to suggest changes to some of their beliefs about Reiki.||Click Here|
|2013-03-22||Reiki and Spirituality -- It’s Earth Day here and spring time in the Vancouver area, the sakura trees are all in bloom and that makes me think about a Reiki related trip I took to Japan in 2000.||Click Here|
|2013-02-28||The Reiki Symbols -- When I first learned the Reiki symbols I read a variety of stories that explained their origin, including one about Usui Sensei seeing the symbols appear in bubbles of light during a meditation. However it wasn't until Melissa Riggall shared something with me in an email in late 1996, that I began to have a growing understanding of where and why they originated.||Click Here|
|2013-01-28||Reiki Lineage -- Reiki lineage didn't used to be a concern as most masters outside of Japan could easily trace their teachers' teachers back to Hawayo Takata. In Japan, your teacher was likely close to one of Usui's students like Eguchi, Hayashi or one of the 2 admirals - Ushida and Taketomi - the original URR Gakkai presidents.||Click Here|
Attunement Energies -- Some people find
that during certain attunements they don't seem to sense anything out
of the ordinary
and they might wonder if anything actually occurred. Or they may feel
there has been no change in their ability with this energy.
Visualisation -- In modern times the
concept of affirmations is pretty much accepted as
a valid tool in everyday life. It can even be improved upon as we
come to understand the "Law of Attraction" and the "Art of Allowing"
|2012-11-27||Self Attunements -- In my first Reiki 3/Reiki Master class (1994) my teacher was Elizabeth Gilberg, a former student of William Rand, who also gave out his Reiki manuals in class. So it was Rand's material where I first got the idea to explore distant attunements and self attunements.||Click Here|
|2012-11-15||Sensing Energies -- Another area of interest for Reiki 1 students is that of being able to sense problem areas in the body. This didn't seem to be a part of Western Reiki when Mrs. Takata taught here.||Click Here|
|2012-10-30||Reiki and Grounding -- Recently in a class I was explaining a common term used in healing practices, that of "grounding" oneself. It seems to have at least 2 connotations.||Click Here|
|2012-10-17||The 21 Day Cleanse - Is It Mandatory? -- Recently a prospective student asked me why my Reiki 1 class content didn't appear to cover the topic of a 21 day cleanse. I assured him I did discuss this, but not in the same context.||Click Here|
Yourself With Light --- Even if you
already using Reiki or some other energy related discipline, you
already have natural healing abilities within you.
||Stepping Up Your Reiki --- Have
you been wondering about how you might improve the effectiveness of
your Reiki energy work? Have you thought about using Reiki for
more than just healing or balancing purposes? .
