Here is a guide to Reiki for those who have no idea what is involved in this style of healing. Reiki is demystified in a thorough and well thought out manner.
The Reiki Magic Guide to Self-Attunement is a clear guide to learning and understanding this powerful method of healing.
Starting with the history of Reiki, the author intersperses his philosophy on Reiki and spirituality with a welcoming sense to all. Rather than sounding as if the reader has to believe in a set of rules in order for to become proficient in healing, you find the way to being a Reiki practitioner is to find one's own connection to what he refers to as the Divine.
The second chapter explains more about attunements and degrees. There is much about Reiki that is kept secret.Traditionally is is believed that one must be a Reiki master in order to find attunement. This author's belief is that Reiki can be and must be available to everyone for the good of the planet.
The guide to self treatment is next. There are very clear drawings of how to perform a self treatment, including the how and whys these movements work. The Chakras are explained and why it is important to heal areas such as being able to express oneself emotionally and increasing creative flow.
The three degrees of Reiki are covered in a thorough and clear manner. Leading the reader from one level to the next with a gentle reinforcement of how important it is to use the healing for the good of others and with good intent.
As a wiccan wanting to do something more to heal the world in which I live in, this book struck a chord within me. There are some basic ideas that I try to live my life by, such as using the power without receiving monetary gain-just like magic. Also, learning to use visualization and symbols with the proper intent. It is stressed that Reiki is never about violating free will and one can not heal someone else who is not open to the healing.
Wicca and Reiki have complimentary basic principals and much insight can be gained by reading this book.
