Keeping it simple

Reiki has certainly been transformational in my life. Since around 1995, my life was turned around and I was, and still am on a very gentle and simple way of life. Don’t get me wrong, I have had many challenges coming in, which would have sent me to *ga ga land*,  but on reflection of these times, I know that I have been sustained and protected by these awesome energies.

Even when I am not aware of this,  Reiki is always there in the background. Like a *silent witness*, standing back and permitting me to make the mistakes I need to experience, in order to evolve and grow.

What is a mistake?  I believe it is a great opportunity for learning. I am still learning not to beat myself up, when I make wrong decisions etc. I am my own harshest critic really! I tell my students that we are Spiritual Beings having human experiences, not human beings having the odd Spiritual experience.

Ah yes, I should apply this to myself, but coming from a Western culture with a human brain which can chatter ten to the dozen, telling me all sorts of nonsense, I then need to get back to simplicity, and remind myself that I will never reach perfection in this life.


During some of my challenges which I have experienced, it has been an *hour at a time*, not a day at a time. Yet these 5 beautiful Reiki Precepts keep me on an even keel most of the time. I am functioning in a far from perfect human vehicle, which can feel overwhelmed at times by earthly life.

I believe we are here to experience every emotion there is on earth. The soul yearns for these opportunities in order to develop and evolve.

I have spoken about challenges. The joys of Reiki far from surpass this. There is meditation, where I can be taken to the most beautiful realms of peace, the daily energy work and the simplicity.

My experiences as Reiki Master/ Teacher bring me an abundance of like minded people who come to train with me,  and in this I am blessed! It is a 2 way process, I learn from my students and each of them brings along their own unique gifts.

The Universal Reiki energies supply me daily with all of my requirement.


I could go on and on, but I’m sure you know what I am trying to convey. Words are always inadequate, are they not???

  5. Thanks David.
    Reiki works only for the greater good.
    Big egos, no humility, unfortunately it does exist in some Reiki communities.

    And that is why I am with Reiki-Evolution. Couldn’t be happier.
    Keep up the good work boyo! You are doing great!

    Kind Wishes

  6. Lovely to read your thoughts Margaret. You keep me going when I think I’m not good enough at Reiki. Though when I get one of my ‘visions’ during DH I feel I am quite good after all. Bless you for all I ahev learnt from you.
