  • How To Choose The Right Reiki Master/ Healer For You

    How to Choose the Right Reiki Master/ Healer for you. Ask where/how they trained. Specifically, if on line, or in person. Whilst I don’t wish to denigrate any other path, I do know, from my own experience, that on line Reiki training simply does not provide the depth, practice or supervision that in person Reiki Programs do. It is also, not in line with the original teachings of Dr Usui. Distant healing is a thing, Distant teaching/Attunements – (unless already attuned in person) are not. For this reason, please ask how your Reiki Healer trained. You can also ask for...
  • Why People Don’t Heal and Therapy Doesn’t Work

    Why People Don’t Heal, and Therapy Doesn’t work There are many excuses people give for not healing, but it all boils down to one basic thing. They get “stuck” at an emotional point, and the focus on this area, manifests as illness. Sometimes it’s immediate, other times it takes years, but it all comes down to an energetic block. Our Chakras are the key points of “processing” our energy and emotion and can be a key tool in healing our blocks. One of the first books I ever read, and one I keep going back to, is Anatomy of the Spirit, by...
  • What does a Reiki workshop involve

    What does a Reiki Workshop involve? Reiki is for anyone and everyone who wish to work with it. As a healing ray, it is available to all, and can be for personal use, or to heal others. As a personal use tool, you are able to use reiki upon yourself physically, mentally and spiritually, whenever and where ever you like, for the rest of your life. Reiki can help with minor aches and pains, menstrual pain, insomnia, cold and flu, and of course – pain of the self inflicted variety – like a hangover 😊. You can also use Reiki for mental,...
  • My Journey to Reiki Healing

    My Path to Reiki – back in 1996 My own path to Reiki was through Hepatitis A. Back in the early 90’s, there was an issue with sewerage being released into a river in Australia, the oysters became infected, thousands of people ate them, and we had ourselves a Hepatitis A epidemic. To be honest, I didn’t really notice.  I knew I felt “off”, but it wasn’t until my room mate at the time said that she thought I really needed to see a doctor that I went. Just a walk in clinic. We introduced ourselves, he asked how he could help....
  • Step One. LOVE.

    LOVE. First response from most people is “I’m trying to, but do you KNOW how HARD relationships are these days?”. Yes, I do. I’m not talking about THAT love. I’m talking about LOVE love. LOVE in it’s purest, soggiest, rosiest form. Unconditional LOVE, free from fear, judgement, social conditioning and need. LOVE for and of all things, regardless of...
  • Step Two. Surrender

    Surrendering is hard. Really, really hard. I don’t know of many people who just up and decided to surrender, without some kind of traumatic even preceding it. In fact, I don’t know of any. I’m sure they’re out there….somewhere.
  • Step three. Be.

    This is, by far, the best part. You’ve done all the hard work around changing your perceptions via study and practice. Where you used to see fear and lack, you now see LOVE and peace. You’ve thrown your hands in the air and surrendered. You’ve lost some friends, a few people have declared you crazy, you feel better than you ever have in your life.
  • If Music be the food of love….play on!

    Shakespeare seems to have been a pretty wise person. Or persons. Or character, depending upon what you read, by whom, and their own theories on him. We will never really know, other than some of his quotes, story lines, theories etc that have been so “true” that they have survived centuries…and speak to us today, as they did when he wrote them, all those years ago. Music being the food of love, is one of them.
  • It all Boils Down to this

    I have recently had the very great privilege of spending a week, locked in a dark room in Hawaii, with Deepak Chopra. Along with 472 others, of course, at one of the Chopra Centre’s “Seduction of the Spirit” retreats. To say that it was a life changing experience may be a mild understatement. Particularly given that I would not say I’m a huge Chopra fan. Or at least, I wasn’t before I went. I am now. I’m quite the disciple these days.
  • Surrender

    Surrender. It’s the keyword for anyone on a path to enlightenment, ascension or peace. Surrender. Simple word. According to Merriam-Webster - the definition of "surrender" includes "to yield to the power, control or possesion of another upon compulsion or demand”. Perhaps that is where the issue with the word comes from, it implies that you lost. That you were overcome.
  • Why Me?

    But why did he do that? Why did this happen to me? Why did they say that? Why, why, why? I would say 80% of my conversations with people start with a “why?”. Can I answer it? 90% of the time, yes. Do you want to hear it? Nope. Is it helpful? Nope. And there is one very basic reason for that. The “why”
  • Where Do I Start? What Do I Do?

    Many, many people seem to stumble around how to start. Where to start. What to do now? I also see some people who are “waiting for the right time”. Let me just address this quickly, and finally. This is the right time. Start where you are. Start now. Start with what you have. The best thing about a personal practice – is that it’s free, and accessible at any time, in any place, by anyone. Marvellous!
  • How to Prepare for a Reading or Healing

    A psychic reading or a Reiki healing session is a very special place in time. In my experience, it is the coming together of our energies, the shared experience of messages and information meant for you, to aid your healing or progress in life. ...
  • The Stages of Awakening

    There are several steps in the “awakening process” generally. Deepak has identified 5. I work with 3. Others have more, or less, depending upon their experience and observation. The three stages of awakening that I have observed are: 1. Trauma 2. Seeking and 3. Being. We also wander back and …
  • Phase 1: Trauma

    From my study and observations in life, there are two general paths to enlightenment: Joy and Trauma. I ‘ve yet to meet anyone who skipped down the Joy path. I’m sure they exist, but I’m also sure they don’t need me to help them. They’re probably not hanging out in bars either. …
  • Phase 2: Seeking

    I’m sure you will recognise a lot that I write here. Afterall, if you were not seeking, you would not have found this page, or any of my work. The seeking phase commences at different times for all of us and will often have different intensities. Occasionally, when things get a bit too “mind blowing” we tend to back off a bit. Which is normal, and healthy. If you find yourself in the seeking phase, you probably:
  • Phase 3: Being

    The Being Phase It has occurred to me, that it may be important to know what the “Being” phase of your awakening process looks like. Or at least, how I live it, and how I see it in others. Because I am a great observer, I always have been. I notice everything. …
  • The Practicalities of Being

    One of the things I hear often is, “but I don’t want to be a doormat”. Variations on that – doormat, pushover, boring, poor, alone, tortured, ridiculed etc. All perfectly valid concerns, for anyone who is considering abandoning the false reality of the world as we have been taught it. I …
  • What Is My Purpose In Life?

    Ever wondered "What is my purpose in life?" What if I were to tell you, that your “purpose” has nothing to do with you? Sit with your reaction for a moment and see how that feels for you. If your response was “of course it doesn’t….doofus….who would ever think that”….then you’re probably quite a long way along your path, and already comfortable with the concept of surrender, and probably do so on a daily basis. You know your ego voice….and its effects.
