For this basic presentation of the principles of hands on and distant healing with Universal Life Force Energy, I have refrained from getting too esoteric. In this instance, it did indeed seem counterproductive. In a second essay, I have discussed at length the reason why Reiki may prove particularly helpful in this day and age, as each individual's very own personal declaration of independence from drugs and unnecessary outside interventions.
Through the actual practice of Reiki, all of the answers you will ever need will come to you as if by osmosis. It is important to remember that all "in"-formation comes from the outside and is ultimately mind-stuff. Therefore, it is essential not to get stuck in or attached to any of the answers contained in the text. It is better to let the answers instead act as an inspiration to help you create your own response-to help you get in touch with your own inner knowing.
Practicing Reiki supports you in tapping your own feelings. All of your answers lie within the superior intelligence of your heart. Thus, the ability to feel, which Reiki promotes due to its very essence as heart energy, will help you to find your own answers. For those who need support in letting go of resistance to feelings, this book may provide insight to assist you further along the path. Ultimately, the proof in the pudding regarding Reiki is in the practice.
I wish you much comfort, ease and joy in your work with Reiki, Share it with yourself and others as often as possible, because the more you call on Universal Life Force Energy the quicker it will respond.
