Are all Reiki courses the same?

Quick answer is no but, rather than go into the negatives of that statement, I would prefer to give you hints of what to look out for, plus options of what you can do if you find that your Reiki teachings have left you with either a negative experience or disappointed in any way with no follow up on working with Reiki or help with any heavy de-stressing that might occur.

Reiki simply means Spiritual Energy which leaves a lot of space for interpretation – so to begin with look out for the Usui Method of Reiki, and ask about your Reiki Master’s lineage.

Crystals – How I work with Crystals

I realize now that I have been working with crystals all my life; jewellery was always a favorite topic in our house and we admired lots of crystals when we went window shopping.  My Mum had a great collection and, my sister and I were brought up playing respectfully with Mum’s very fine jewellery.  

Mum along the way has passed parts of her collection to me which I honor and treasure, and my sister and children have given me wonderful gifts of jewellery; this makes me feel connected to them even when they are far away.

The Number 5 and Emerald - the Stone for May

I have always been in awe of numbers. It is not that I am particularly good at working out what we used to call arithmetic, it’s just that because I feel rather inept in this area, I try harder to at least keep pace with number exercises or problems. I also think that numbers are much more that they first appear. Think about the Number 1. See how straight it stands. This is a number that will brook no opposition. Its very stance is evidence of its refusal to bend to the will of another. Oops – tangent.

Numbers are much greater in the affect they have on our lives than we might give them credit.  All this leads me on a quest to find how numbers can impinge on our lives for good or ill and so my interest in numerology is fostered. Now some may scoff but the fact is that numbers are all around us. We use numbers every day in every aspect of our lives. I wanted to see which number is allied to the gemstone for May so let’s get started.

Crystals – How do they work?

Everything is energy and we, as humans, have a very quick moving and somewhat chaotic energy that can easily get out of balance.  Crystals, with their ancient manifestation that comes from deep within Mother Earth, have a very steady energy and when the two come together in the right way, one can be of help to the other.

Crystals contain piezoelectricity (relating to the polarisation resulting from the application of mechanical stress), that emanates at a certain megahertz and they bring their constant vibration to not only help humans, but crystals are used extensively in modern technology.  Every time you go into a supermarket, use your mobile phone, or computer, silica will abound and that is ground up clear quartz crystals.

Reiki – When should we consider doing a Reiki course?

Any time of course is a good time to join a Living Reiki Course.  Most people come along because they are either curious, or have problems or health issues, either their own or family members which they feel Reiki can help to resolve.  Usually it is a desire to be of help to others and sometimes, it is that they know they need to change but don’t know how.

The good thing about The Light Workers Way is that it can be tailored to your needs as far as timing goes.  There are a couple of ways to schedule a Living Reiki course. We either run them over an 8week course; evening, morning or afternoon depending upon the time agreed.  Or a day a week over 4 to 5 weeks. The time frame is agreed on the first day of the course then we just organise the different dates and times as needed.
