Reiki and Acupuncture: Friendly Cousins

Thanks to Einstein, we know that there are only two kinds of things in the world: energy, and things that can become energy. But what is energy? We might call it an intangible essence, a spark of activity that cannot be created, destroyed, or easily defined.

To take it to the simplest form look at the atom; this tiny microscopic “thing” is so powerful that when scientists found out how to split it, the atom bomb was created. It is not...

Chanting Reiki Symbols

Chanting Reiki Symbols

Reiki and Chanting One of the many gifts I received from my Karuna Reiki® Training was the use of chanting as part of the Reiki healing system. I was blessed with taking the Karuna Master training twice in 2011. At first the use of chanting and toning felt odd and uncomfortable especially in a session.

But it was at this conference, also, that after days of careful discussion, the preeminent minds in their respective fields announced that the universe is not a machine after all. Few saw it at the time, but a shift had...
