Think Meditation is about clearing the mind?  Sitting in uncomfortable positions?  Believe Meditation should give you inner peace?  Think again!

Meditation has become a hot topic in recent years as more and more research attests to the great benefits attributed to regular sessions of quietening the mind.  However there is just as much confusion on how meditation should be done, and plenty of myths on the ‘right’ way to do Read More How to Meditate Properly – Three Top Myths

Close the Gap

Posted in Enlightened Living, and Reiki Blog

Often we overlook the fact that in our personal growth the only thing we need to focus on is the gap between reality, and our perception.  Reality is what is actually happening.  Our perception is what we think should be happening.  when the reality and what we think should be happening is the same, life flows and we are happy…we are getting our way.  But when things start to diverge, Read More Close the Gap

Protection against what?

Posted in Enlightened Living, FAQ, and Reiki Blog

I often get asked a question around how to use Reiki to protect yourself against ‘negative’ energies and its always a good opportunity to bust some myths around our deep seated superstitions and beliefs about good and bad energies. Reiki is beyond, or deeper than, or before, duality. That means Reiki exists before good and bad, up and down, big and small, light and dark. Reiki is Universal energy; that Read More Protection against what?

Infinite Paths to Self-Awareness

Posted in Enlightened Living, Reiki Blog, and Reiki Tips

Everyone has his or her own path to self-awareness. Don’t look to another person’s journey, but go within and find your own.

If you are new to Reiki, and even if you are not, you will have many questions as to ‘how’ to do things. ‘How’ to best use Reiki, ‘how’ to avoid mistakes, ‘how’ to feel more sensation (or less!), etc etc. The list can be endless to the Read More Infinite Paths to Self-Awareness

Reiki as a doorway to pure Presence

Posted in Enlightened Living, Reiki Blog, and Reiki Tips

During Reiki self-treatment we gain moments of peace, when the mind is quiet and we get an experience of our true nature. We rest from the mind’s incessant thinking, and in this moment there is a great opportunity to witness our true being. I am understanding when people tell me that Reiki is not ‘powerful’ enough for them (I have been there too), and they feel the need to learn Read More Reiki as a doorway to pure Presence

The Three Directions of Suffering

Posted in Enlightened Living, and Reiki Blog

As we progress in our spiritual growth, we begin to see there are three distinct ways of dealing with any emotional upheaval. Such upheavals can be due to a specific traumatic and confronting event, or can be just waves of emotions that sweep us occasionally for no apparent reason and seem to want to stick around.

In the beginning we may automatically ask the question ‘why’ : why is Read More The Three Directions of Suffering

Empowering ourselves with Reiki

Posted in Enlightened Living, and Reiki Blog

I was so touched a few evenings ago when my 11 year old daughter thanked me for giving her Reiki in her hands.  It came up in a discussion between my two daughters on how they use Reiki to help themselves when they are scared, or when they want to go to sleep.  They were comparing notes on which hand positions they used for different purposes. I was in awe Read More Empowering ourselves with Reiki

Body, Mind, Spirit or Car, Driver, Road

Posted in Body Mind Spirit, Enlightened Living, and Reiki Blog

This analogy came to me recently, and you all know I love a good analogy!  As I was pondering how to talk about the importance of balancing all three of our major aspects – body, mind, spirit.  Often I see people become obsessed with one to the detriment of the others.  But essentially all three need to be maintained and developed in order for the entire journey to be smooth.

All Decisions have 3 options – stay/go/procrastinate!

Posted in Enlightened Living, and Reiki Blog

Do you have those times when you really just don’t know which option to take?  You draw up your pros and cons list, you discuss with family and friends and you just seem to go round and round in circles?  Well, there is no need to panic really as there is no such thing as a ‘wrong’ decision.  We are always experiencing life; the path actually makes little difference to Read More All Decisions have 3 options – stay/go/procrastinate!

Loving the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Self

Posted in Enlightened Living, and Reiki Blog

Whatever we react to strongly in life is what we have yet to discover within ourselves. If we hate judgmental people, we have yet to love this side of ourselves. If we hate stubborn people, we have yet to embrace our stubbornness.

Life is a mirror, and if we avoid looking at ourselves deeply and embracing our stubborn, judgmental selves, then we will always react to the outside mirrors with Read More Loving the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Self
