The Five Elements & Reiki: Fire = Joy

reiki five elements fire joy agitation

I mentioned in my earlier post “An Introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine” that I have created a Reiki healing system based on working with the “Five Elements” of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In a series of articles I’m going to be talking about different aspects of the Five Elements and how they impinge on people’s lives: how imbalances in the five elements can show themselves as physical conditions and particular emotions and states of mind.

I have written about how the elements support and control each other through the nourishment and control cycles, I’ve spoken about the meridians… Continue reading

Something new for you: “Precepts Rehearsal”

reiki precepts rehearsal meditation

An powerful new way to experience the Reiki precepts

I thought I would share with you a technique that I created, something that allows you to really embrace one of the Reiki precepts, in fact any of the precepts that you feel would benefit you more if it could become more fully a part of how you are.

I call this method “Precepts Rehearsal” and it is a form of meditation based on a powerful hypnotherapy technique called ‘future pacing’.

Future pacing is all about getting yourself into a meditative state (or a trance state: they are the same thing) and spending some time imagining yourself behaving in a way that shows your subconscious mind how you want to be… you are rehearsing being the person that you wish to be, the person that you are becoming.

How to carry out Precepts Rehearsal

So, let’s assume that you would like to experience compassion more in your life.

Your 10 Day Reiki Challenge: the “Releasing Exercise”

reiki meditation

What is the Releasing Exercise?

I love the way that the Reiki precepts, and the effects of learning Reiki, blend and merge with each other. So if you could encapsulate in words the effects of Reiki on a person, you would probably say that they were largely free from anger and worry and that they were more mindful.

And at the same time we have a set of precepts that encourage us to be mindful, and to let go of worry and anger.

Mikao Usui’s precepts are such an important part of the original system and something that can sometimes… Continue reading

Tune Into Our Weekly Distant Reiju Empowerments

Bliss out on our distant Reiju every week

For the benefit of Reiki people who are not able to get along to a Reiki share to receive a regular Reiju empowerment, or for people who simply do not even know anyone who can carry out Reiju empowerments on them, I have decided to provide Reiju at a distance.

In the original Japanese form of Reiki, empowerments would have been received week in, week out, throughout a student’s life with Reiki, at First Degree, Second Degree and beyond.

And some people are making Reiju empowerments available at their Reiki Shares by… Continue reading

New Reiki Synthesis course launches

Saturday September 15th saw the launch of our new “Reiki Synthesis” course, with an group of intrepid Reiki explorers coming together at Regent’s College in Regent’s Park, London, to learn all about this new way of working with Reiki. It was a tremendous day, I thought, with a lovely group of talented Reiki people who all worked very hard and got to grips with the new methods admirably.

Tina Shaw was on hand to help and be a guinea pig for me to demonstrate “Reiki Emotional Integration” – a new method that uses a guided breathing exercise and bespoke symbols… Continue reading

Bespoke symbols

The Reiki symbols can occupy a slightly difficult position for some people who practise Reiki. On the one hand, we are taught that Reiki knows where to go and what to do, drawn according to the recipient’s need, and on the other hand we are given these symbols to use when we treat people, which sort of suggests that we can do better than plain old drawn-where-it-needs-to-go Reiki. I have found a way of looking at things that reconciles these two views.

How it works for me is this: whenever we use a Reiki symbol (and at Reiki Evolution we… Continue reading

Red Cross Reiki Singapore: “Humour & Humility”

When I arrived in Singapore in October 2011 I began my search for a local Reiki Community of like-minded folk. As Divine synchronicity would have it, my search led me to find voluntary work by connecting me with the Red Cross Reiki Team and, as I had time to give on my hands, I contacted them. The Team were set up a few years ago by Anne Richardson and activities are now run by Bronagh Tucker, both Reiki Masters with a generous Spirit and hearts of gold.

The Team meet deliver Reiki to the mentally and physically handicapped men, women… Continue reading

Reiki people come from all backgrounds

I think perhaps that when the ‘person on the street’ thinks about a Reiki practitioner or teacher, they will have an image come to mind of some New Age person, maybe in a kaftan, with incense, crystals, chanting something, and while this may be a valid description of some Reiki people (and I don’t have a problem with that, by the way), Reiki is actually something that is learned and practised by people from a whole load of different backgrounds. A while ago I asked people to let me have their occupations, so I could prepare a list, and I… Continue reading

Equine Reiki in pictures

I would like to share with you all some pictures of the lovely Pancho receiving Reiki from one of my students Brenda

At the start of the treatment, Brenda connects to Pancho with one hand on the wither and the other on the chest connecting through the heart.

Brenda moves on to let Reiki flow through the back and loins, as she does this Pancho closes his eyes and lowers his neck slightly
Pancho shows he is enjoying the treatment; chewing and licking his lips 
As Brenda moves on to send Reiki… Continue reading

Paula GhazaiThis is another in our series of “My Reiki Story” posts that we will be adding to the Reiki Evolution blog, where a Reiki person talks about their journey with Reiki. In today’s “My Reiki Story” we hear from Paula Ghazai from Kent…

I came to Reiki via massage and other therapies. I worked for ten years within the Beauty and Cosmetic Industry and when I left I wished to continue with the hands-on part of that. I continued to offer massage treatments, training in Aromatherapy and Indian head Massage but would find myself getting really tired after massaging someone… Continue reading

My Reiki Story: Carol Leslie

Carol LeslieThis is another in our series of “My Reiki Story” posts that we will be adding to the Reiki Evolution blog, where a Reiki person talks about their journey with Reiki. In today’s “My Reiki Story” we hear from Carol Leslie from Aberdeen…

My Reiki ‘journey’ began in the year 2000 when my brother Ronnie was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer. He was barely 45 years old and I was devastated. I didn’t know what to do initially, but I simply could not stand by and watch my brother deteriorate before my eyes without helping him in some way. I… Continue reading
