Recently, I looked at the News section of my website, and was amazed at how many articles about Reiki I had written. I keep being told from Higher Sources, friends and other healers that I need to work on a number of books to chronicle the Reiki sessions I am involved with. As a result, new books have been front of mind for me. Compiling some of the articles from my website, along with new material, seemed like a natural first step. I always loved greatest hits albums and kind of looked at this project the same way. This first volume could be called, Greatest Hits plus New Bonus Material!
I try to relate what I am experiencing with Reiki and share it on a regular basis through social media and on my website. A lot of things that have happened with me and Reiki have not been written about until now. In some cases, it just took time for me to process what took place on Reiki’s terms. I’m always saying, “you can’t make this stuff up,” and you can’t. This book is non-fiction; I can promise you that.
As my Reiki experiences continue to add up, I will write about the healings and share them in the next edition. My hope is that this is the first of many volumes covering my Reiki adventures. Recently, I was involved with another incredible healing experience. The strength of Reiki’s energy humbles me to the core. The married couple I am referring to are a prime example of my mantra, “Healing is a Team Effort.” They are living proof. I call them the power couple. They are both open to the endless possibilities that Reiki offers as it heals them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Their healing runs very deep as they are recovering from pain that nobody should ever have to experience in this life time. They were young, innocent children and endured hell here on Earth. They’re survivors, and I respect them so much. They are in their 70’s now and releasing their pain to the light. It is an incredible thing to witness and one of the reasons why I will continue to write about my experiences with Reiki. You certainly can’t make this stuff up, and why would you? Reiki speaks for itself.
Initially, I was planning to have different sections, separate topics and sub headings in this book. Then, I decided that any box or category would limit each article. They deserve to stand on their own. As I worked on this project, there was a flow to it, as I went back to read the original articles and then just went with what felt right as far as where it appeared on these pages. A lot of other stuff was left behind and is still there on my website. But, many new insights are also a part of this gift of words from my heart to yours. Words can heal and my hope is that this reading experience will bring you moments of peace, love and hope – the 3 things that Reiki brings to every situation.
Putting myself in the reader’s shoes, I wanted you to be able to read this book back to front or front to back, or randomly by choosing any page, and still experience the flow of the healing words. Torkom Saraydarian is a spiritual teacher of mine, and his words have changed my life. I can pick up one of his books on any given day, and randomly open it to a page and be inspired by his wisdom, no matter which page I am on. I hope you can have that same kind of experience with this book.
These stories of peace, love and hope have a piece of my heart and soul in each of them. I tried to shed some additional light on the story behind each story. I hope that you enjoy yourself as you take the time out of your busy life to read them. My gratitude and love for my readers runs very deep. God Bless You & Be Well.
Dear Readers: I am still working on this book and allowing it to happen on its own time. It’s a labor of love and I’m enjoying the process. I look forward to sharing it with you in the near future. JB
