Immigrant Children, Mrs. Takata and Our Basic Humanity

As you know, I’m a Reiki teacher, which is a practice/art/modality that this particular linage derives from Japan. While it may be common knowledge that Reiki was “discovered” in the early 1920s, but what may not be well known within the history is the jump that it made from a Japanese practice to something that is primarily practiced in the western world today. Google it, Reiki isn’t that big in Japan, or not in a public way that it is in here, which blows my mind because it’s a practice of Japanese origin! (And while it’s of Japanese origin, it’s for all the peoples of the earth).

Reiki Q&A: Post Class Cleanse?

Hi Jerry, It just dawned on me that we didn’t discuss any post attunement cleanse. Friends of mine who have had level 1 have mentioned this to me and I’ve read that it is crucial. Should I plan to follow the 21 days of cleansing and self practice? I know these things are generally beneficial but I would love to learn your thoughts. Thank you! ~ Kelsey

My Reiki Story: Jennifer D.

Hi! Jerry here. Please welcome Jennifer D., a lovely soul, as she shares her Reiki story. 

My Reiki Story: Jennifer D. 

A year ago I had no idea what Reiki was or that it would be a major influence in re-connecting with my spiritual side. In the past year, or perhaps the last two years, I have been a journey of immense personal and, more recently, spiritual growth.

We Do Not End When We Die

This past year has been quite the ride in loss and creating space. My father passed away suddenly of a heart attack in September of 2016. While he was in his 80s and he’s been gradually slowly down in the last decade and he was in rehab for weakness following a hospital stay, the death was sudden, raw and jarring. He was due to come home on Monday and he passed suddenly on Saturday, just 2 days before he was to get his biggest wish, to be at the home he built with my mom and had lived there for 49 years. But he got the next best thing, he passed quickly with my mom, his wife of 56 years, at his side.
