Using Healing Tools

September 1, 2014

A lot of people add healing tools from other systems when they give Reiki treatments. There is nothing wrong with this; Reiki was never meant to be this stagnant system that never grows. In fact, when Mikao Usui developed a ranking system for energy healers, he ranked himself one below the top, because he knew someone […]

When Reiki doesn’t work

August 22, 2014

“Why didn’t Reiki heal my problem?” That can be a tough question to answer. A lot of Reiki practitioners fall back on the “highest good” argument and talk about esoteric factors that the person is working through. And sometimes that is the reason, but sometimes they are just more obvious. Master Stephen Co talked about […]

Traditional History of Reiki

August 18, 2014

The Japanese like many ancient cultures used word of mouth to pass their history and practices down from generation to generation. Unfortunately, this led to a great deal of knowledge and wisdom being watered down and lost. Many people involved with Reiki believe that the techniques we use today for healing were first used in […]

Forgiveness Practice

August 10, 2014

When I took the Basic Pranic Healing workshop from Master Stephen Co, I learned a great many things. But none of them were more powerful than the Forgiveness practice he taught us. Even doing this for just the few minutes in the workshop had profound effects on me. So I thought I would share it […]

Why we teach Reiki hand positions

August 2, 2014

“Don’t worry if you forget one of the hand positions or get them out of order; Reiki will go where it is needed.” “Then why do we learn the hand positions?” That is a very good question, but very few Level 1 students ask it. I wish more would. Students don’t ask enough questions. I think […]

My Personal Mantra

June 23, 2014

I decided to take some time to talk about my personal mantra. This is what I say to myself on a regular basis to keep me on track, as it were. The nice thing about a personal mantra is that you get to take full ownership. The connection is stronger because I took the time […]

Caregivers Could Add Reiki to Medicine Bag

June 20, 2014

Kathleen Dowd wrote an article for the Brattleboro Reformer about caregivers learning Reiki. Many families are struggling with chronic illness, hospice care, children with various conditions, learning and behavioral challenges, and acute emergencies as well. Reiki can lend ease, relaxation, and support to those in need. One may go to a qualified Reiki practitioner for […]

Using Reiki and EFT

June 17, 2014

When I learn new tools, I don’t think about them separately. I like to mix and match tools, use different tools together. So let’s talk about integrating EFT and Reiki practice. The easiest way to integrate them is to activate the Reiki flow while tapping. Having Reiki flowing out of your fingertips while tapping will […]

EFT for Lasting Change

Using EFT

Once you understand the overview of EFT and learn the Basic Recipe,  it is time to work with long-standing issues. The great thing about the Basic Recipe, is you can use it almost anywhere to tap away a fear, anxiety, or some other very immediate concern. I have used it many times to help relieve […]

EFT- The Basic Recipe

April 16, 2014

Previously, I gave an overview of EFT and defined the basic tapping points. Now, I would like to go over the EFT Basic Recipe. The Basic Recipe is like a mother sauce in cooking. Once you have the basic formula down, you can use it in hundreds of ways by tweaking it. The basic recipe […]
