New Usui Reiki Natural Healing Manuals

I am nearing completion of the Usui System of Natural Healing Reiki manuals that I have been working on for quite a while. My Reiki Students and Reiki colleagues have been very patient waiting for the manuals to be published. I plan on their publication by the end of this year. As my Reiki students know, I tend to be a very thorough Reiki Master Teacher. I have been teaching Reiki classes since 1999, and I have reviewed numerous Reiki books and manuals over the years. I have been unsatisfied with the lack of quality and thoroughness with the manuals currently available to teachers and students. I constantly supplement the available manuals with additional information provided as a packet for my students.

There is much essential information missing in available Reiki books and manuals. I believe that this lack of knowledge and wisdom reduces the effectiveness of providing treatments and the efficacy for those receiving the Reiki treatments. Of equal importance is the value of offering compassionate enlightenment for Reiki students and embracing the essence of energy healing on diverse depths and levels.

My primary goal in writing these Reiki manuals is to provide these missing elements. My Reiki students will be the first to have these manuals before publication. My previous Reiki Practitioner students are going to receive advanced notice of the publication and the opportunity to purchase the first run copies. My previous Reiki Master Teacher students are going to receive advanced notice of the publication of these manuals and to purchase for their Reiki students. On this blog, you can learn of the final publication dates for the manuals.

The 10 new Reiki certification manuals include:

  • Shoden, Reiki First Degree
  • Okuden, Reiki Second Degree
  • Shinpiden, Third Degree Reiki Master Teacher
  • Embracing Our Animal Companions with Reiki
  • Establishing a Thriving Reiki Practice
  • The Influence of Intuition with Reiki Treatments
  • How Mikao Usui Taught the Original Usui System of Natural Healing
  • Essential Reiki Questions and Answers
  • The Quantum Physics Approach to Reiki
  • The Essence Balancing Influence in Reiki Treatments

I am teaching segments of the manuals in all levels of my current Reiki certification classes.

Reiki for Animals

Is Reiki for Animals Different from Reiki for Humans?

I work with people and I work with animals to help them improve and maintain their quality of life. Reiki is wonderful for our animal companions because it is gentle, noninvasive and does not require physical contact. It does not cause them stress, pain, discomfort or aggravate their issues. Numerous powerful benefits result from Reiki for animals. Just like with humans, animals easily respond to Reiki’s influence to support their healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical illnesses and injuries.

For animals who are ill, Reiki is a wonderful healing method as well as a safe complement to Western Medicine, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, and all other forms of natural healing. Animal Reiki can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and surgery. Reiki accelerated the healing of Quincy, a dachshund in my family, after major back surgery.

Reiki treatment for humans generally includes a series of specific hand positions lightly placed upon different areas of the body to identify and stimulate healing. Unlike humans, animals will frequently place certain parts of their body that need healing against the hands of the Reiki practitioner. You can use Reiki with a light touch on an animal or from several feet away. Some animals may come forward to receive hands-on treatment. A Reiki practitioner can use distant Reiki to help the healing process.

I encourage Reiki in treating our animal companion’s endocrine glands which include the Pineal and Pituitary, Thyroid and Thymus, Adrenals, Pancreas, Gonads and Ovaries. And always, follow your intuition on where to place your hands.
