Practical Reiki is READY!

Hello everyone! It’s funny, but a year ago I was told that I’d write a book about Reiki and I laughed and said that was silly, that there wasn’t anything to say about Reiki that wasn’t already in a book. I stand corrected. Recently, I was at The Cleveland Clinic, where I volunteer with the […]

Peeking Behind Oz’s Curtain

Some interesting things are happening lately, and I’m treating the experiences like little peeks at the workings going on behind the scenes. This series of events seem like they could lead me where I’m hoping to go, and yet they leave me wondering. Ah, the mysteries of life – LOL! Here they are: Two days […]


This week has been eventful. I came to a new realization about an energy healing technique called scanning and it also ties into a way of looking at life. Events in my life lately have tied into the concepts related to this idea too, so it’s become another of those “my, how things all work […]

I learned through having this kind of job that every word is important. Words for cards, questions and rules must be chosen carefully in order to be clear about how […]

Happy Anniversary!!

Today is my birthday, and the 1st anniversary of the day I began this Reiki Awakening blog. So much has happened in the last year and it’s been an amazing journey so far. I’m continuously inspired by the blessings Reiki has brought me and the way Reiki has opened the door to new states of […]

My Kundalini Reiki Attunement Calendar…and more

I now have five people that I am attuning to Kundalini Reiki, and it’s quite a process! Not because the attunments are difficult; on the contrary, they usually take me about 5-7 minutes to intend and send. It’s that a complete Kundalini Reiki attunement has 9 attunements, scheduled weekly after the first two, and so […]
