We live on this planet experiencing dark days of cloud cover, and long cold winters where we’ve turned away from the light - but no matter how tilted we are in the other direction, that sun is always shining. There is always light. Even in the belly of our dear Earth, she contains a central sun that constantly churns with magma.
Our spirit is the same as that sunshine. Our Source of energy is also found within ourselves, deep in our very core there is a cauldron of infinite light. That same powerful light is ever shining from within you - warming the world around you, illuminating life around you. It is always there. It can not be destroyed, it can not die. This light is what you are.
Your feelings are little children. They are begging for your love. They want to be held, acknowledged. Not locked away and shunned. ‘If you ignore me,’ says the root of your worry, ‘I will disguise myself and parade through your nightmares.’ They want to be heard and held and healed of their wounds. Once they are witnessed for what they are, they release us on their own.
The depth and breadth of the Reiki System is illustrated by the deceptively simple Reiki Principles. Six little lines that are a profoundly affective invocation to healing. They uproot our long buried pain so it can once and for all be seen, understood, healed, and released.
Imagine as a soul, we descend from the non-physical formless realm of Universal Consciousness into the physical realm of form. We find ourselves alive in an Earth based duality, having gone through this journey of manifestation and forgetting our origin as spiritual beings. As we move down the chakras to root into the manifested world, the layers get denser and denser - from consciousness to light to sound to air to fire to water to earth.
Allow yourself to imagine the entirety of the Universe in your mind… It is far too vast for any of our minds to contain, but in the attempt we pull ourselves open. We unzip our edges.
The soul of this incredible Universe is Source. This Universe is but one of its many incarnations, and we are but one of its many breaths. ‘Uni’ means one, while ‘verse’ means to turn. As humans we are a small fraction of this turn, this revolution as the Universe. We are like cells moving through a body. The body of God.
Reiki is the pure energy of Source, that soulful love that constantly pulses from beat of the Universe’s heart. Reiki is the spiritual energy that animates, creates, and harmonises all of life.
There is a persistent silence that precedes all sound. The still void holds each sound as a wave that passes through it. You can’t get behind the silent canvas. In the same way, it is our consciousness that holds space for every thought, every experience, and every emotion to pass through. Our pure being, this background containing self, is the first and last instance to any circumstance. We can’t get behind it. When you sink far back enough or become still in that deepest of places, you’ll find no boundary to it - no time, no point in space it occupies, for it is space itself.

What happened to the infant self I once was? Where did my baby go as he grew into the toddler he now is?
If I met someone who knew my parents when, but hadn’t seen me since I was a newborn, they wouldn’t be able to stop themselves from speaking of this version of me I don’t even remember. They would see me as the grown version of the baby. An image of the past from their minds, a projected history, would be who they met - rather than current me at aged thirty-seven, I’d be the newborn in a thirty-seven year old body.
All of the people in your life allow you to know life, to know God / Spirit / Source as fully as you are able. Every being on this earth is a facet of Source - a molecule of the divine. When you look at another, you look at yourself. Everyone is you, looking back at you. Just as you can’t separate the various notes that coalesce to create a harmony, you can’t be separate from the Source of All That Is. Our tones coalesce into union simply by our existence. You might fall out of key, but you can vibrate right back to harmony by dropping any story that feels otherwise.
When we no longer seek for the external world to reassure us or approve of us, we find that we approve of it. That is how we find peace. This essential, natural state of harmony is our powerful medicine for the shift across humanity. We can only make peace elsewhere when we've resolved that war in our own heads.
The moon is just behind my shoulder as the sun rises in front of me. I have been left with a sensation of fullness because I found something empty - a hole to wholeness. I hadn’t expected to find her. I was simply exploring the coastline near our little holiday home, wandering the Portuguese cliffs with curiosity. I saw over a jagged orange rock a near perfect circle framing the sea beyond like a portal. I walked around it to peer through, finding a full female form revealing a space that so moved me I stood transfixed in reverence.
