I have been amazed at the reaction of my family and friends, who I have been treating with Reiki every chance I get.  My husband loves Reiki healing as it calms and relaxes him without fail, and as he is in a very high stress job, it is 'just what the doctor ordered'.  As for myself, I treat myself with Reiki most days, time permitting.  I find that I have more patience with everybody around me, feel just more at peace with myself and, most of all, happy and healthy."

The Reiki Path


Reiki is a truly magical journey to inner peace, health & personal transformation. 

"The outer conditions of a person's life will always be found to reflect
their inner beliefs."
James Allen 


Once you commit to learning Reiki, you will gain a completely new perspective on health and happiness. I can promise you that if you practise it regularly, your life will never be quite the same again!  

As you start working with this loving and compassionate energy you will find it supporting you to grow, develop and change in all sorts of exciting and unexpected ways.  Reiki is not just a tool for helping others; above all else Reiki enables us to find our true path in life and begin to fulfil the potential we were born with.

"If a man can put his own ego out of the way and believe without a doubt, then he can enter a state of consciousness where he has no limitations, except those he imposes on himself."

Life is full of change and challenge, and the secret to happiness and peace of mind is to learn to let go of the old and welcome the new without fear and resistance.  Regular practice of Reiki lovingly and effectively supports us through these changes.  It gives us a positive outlook and helps us to make the most of them by seeing them as opportunities to develop our potential rather than as difficulties that hold us back. 


Nelson Mandela's vision captures for me the essence of the Reiki path:


Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves:
"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?"
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking 
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine as children do.
We are born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us. 
It is not just in some of us - it is in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, 
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 
As we are liberated from our fear, 
our presence automatically liberates others.


This beautiful daily acceptance prayer (author unknown) also powerfully illustrates for me what the Reiki path is all about:

Daily Acceptance Prayer

I accept myself completely.
I accept my strengths and my weaknesses,
my gifts and my shortcomings,
my good points and my faults.
I accept myself completely as a human being.

I accept that I am here to learn and grow, and
I accept that I am learning and growing.
I accept the personality I've developed, and
I accept my power to heal and change.
I accept myself without condition or reservation.
I accept that the core of my being is goodness and
that my essence is love, and
that I accept that I sometimes forget that.
I accept myself completely, and in this acceptance
I find an ever-deepening inner strength.
From this place of strength, I accept my life fully and
I open to the lessons it offers me today.

I accept that within my mind are both fear and love, and
I accept my power to choose which
I will experience as real.
I recognise that I experience only the results
of my own choices.
I accept the times that I choose fear
as part of my learning and healing process, and
I accept that I have the potential and the power
in any moment to choose love instead.
I accept mistakes as part of growth,
so I am always willing to forgive myself and
give myself another chance.

I accept that my life is the expression of my thoughts, and
I commit myself to aligning my thoughts
more and more each day to the Thought of Love.
I accept that I am an expression of this Love.
Love's hands and voice and heart on Earth.
I accept my own life as a blessing and a gift.
My heart is open to receive, and I am deeply grateful.
May I always share the gifts that I receive
fully, freely, and with joy.

Reiki Principles

"Any apprehension I'd had beforehand about how I'd cope with the Reiki II course was soon dispelled, as the atmosphere was very gentle and calming, and I found the whole weekend an enjoyable and enlightening experience in pleasant company and surroundings.

The Reiki course content was very well prepared and delivered. Heather's warm and straightforward manner ensured that a wealth of information did not become overwhelming, and our questions were consistently and coherently answered. The reference manual Heather provided was equally well written and clear, and I left at the end of the course very much looking forward to using everything I'd learned, eager to make discoveries, and feeling capable and confident that I had been given everything I needed."
