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."
Isobel Clifford, Reiki
Reiki is a truly magical
journey to inner peace, health & personal
"The outer conditions of a
person's life will always be found to reflect
their inner beliefs."
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
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
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond
It is our light, not our darkness, that most
We ask ourselves:
"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented,
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as
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
we unconsciously give other people permission to do
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
I open to the lessons it offers me today.
I accept that within my mind are both fear and love,
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
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
May I always share the gifts that I receive
fully, freely, and with joy.
"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
