A few years ago, I lost touch with Reiki for a while. Caught up with everything else, I'd forgotten the rewards of living that powerful healing journey and how it feeds the soul.

Then it called me back.  It returned, completing the picture for me, somehow.

The more I immerse myself in this healing art, the more I am in awe of the sheer Grace involved.

At the simplest level, Reiki offers us wonderful relaxation which cannot fail to promote healing.

For those interested in taking life forward with more in-depth commitment, Reiki is so much more than a useful item in our self-development toolbox. It is a statement to the Universe that we are prepared to come out of our comfort zone and take full responsibility for our lives, bearing whatever may come up in the process. Then subsequently to rejoice in, and enjoy the fruits of our labours.

Mikao Usui brought us the gift of Reiki originally as a personal path towards joining with our own divinity. Within that journey inevitably comes healing and resolution.

What is there to lose? We lose being stuck in a rut.

Why hang around feeling sorry for myself and merely dressing my wounds? Maybe this process of life, with all its ups and downs, can actually be a wonderful adventure rather than a total confrontation.

At the end of the day, the power of Reiki reflects our level of intention. No more, no less.

Okay, Universe, take me on!
