In my experience, I’ve always found that when you’re working with animals, it’s just that, you are working WITH them. You are not doing anything TO them or allowing your pre-conceived ideas of how the Energy Healing Session should ‘go’ – it’s not that way at all.

When you’re working with animals – you LET THEM LEAD always, and I can’t stress that enough.

Animal Energy work comes from the heart and that is what you’re doing when you are working with them, you hold space and connect with their heart space and that is the bridge – the connection of love.

You can either work in person with the animals or distantly. You can work with pets or wildlife, when I say wildlife I don’t just mean the lions and tigers, I mean the birds that come into your garden for food, the hedgehogs who arrive at night for their food, feral cats who will only approach and eat from a distance. And when you can send distant healing to animals it doesn’t matter where in the world they are as Reiki transcends all time, space and dimension.

I often send healing to the birds and my squirrel in the garden and I know whether they want to receive the energy or not. Not by verbal communication as with animals, it’s all done by non-verbal communication but you can pick up on cues as to whether they want to receive healing or not.

I daily give energy healing to my pets, in fact, if I am doing any energy work they always gravitate towards me even if I’m working with a client at home 🙂

But when I work with my own fur babies, I connect with them through my heart space (which is where you communicate with animals too) – ‘heart to heart’ so it’s a bit like meditating with your pet, you be quiet, allow the connection to be made and you just ‘be’ and allow that energetic connection to begin.

As well as healing your pet you’re also healing yourself at the same time, Cats are very energy sensitive so sometimes they don’t want hands-on healing but they bask in the energy that is being sent, and when they’ve had enough they’ll let you know, they either get up and move out of the way or leave the room. When you’re doing hands-on healing with a cat or dog or other pet, you need to forget all about stressing about the hand positions needed (as in human reiki) – remember I said let the animals lead, and you will find that they move their own body as to where they want you to place your hands, they tell you. They roll over, or move so your hands are around their tummy or back, they’ll rest their head on you, they will sit on your knee or lay down beside you.

Being able to do energy work with animals is one of the greatest gifts you can have and you also build such a precious bond with them too.

They are so precious and are a gift to us so if we are able to help them then what is better than that?

Protect yourself from negative energy and people in your environment

Sensing ~ Increasing awareness of your energy and in other people and the environment

Cleaning ~ Removing dense or negative energy from your auric field

Protecting ~ Shielding your energy field from negative energy

There are three basic levels of consciousness: the subconscious, the super-conscious, and conscious awareness.

The Super- and sub-conscious comprise what we refer to as the nonconscious mind.

In energy work, the conscious mind provides intention, attention and process ~ the nonconscious mind does everything else.

This requires the practitioner to learn to be open and receptive to communications and perceptions from the non-conscious mind.

Success relies on being patient and accepting rather than striving and forcing.

1) Everything Is Energy

Quantum science has revealed that everything is simultaneously subtle energy and solid matter, which is the meaning of Einstein’s famous equation E=MC2.

You are energy, the air you’re breathing, the chair that you’re sitting on, the animals around you, rocks, trees, everything is energy.

And everything shares energy with everything else.

You are sharing energy right now with anything close to you including the couch, the people around you and whatever is nearby.

This is the basis of “energy empathy” that we will discuss later.

2) Energy Follows Thought

In a quantum universe, the conscious mind is the creator and director.

We know from quantum science and with actual scientific experiments that the human thought directs what happens at the subtle energy level or what the scientists would call quantum energy.

As the expression goes, “Energy flows where attention goes.”

This is the source of our ability to command subtle energy with our mind through visualizations.

3) Like Attracts Like

Your thoughts are like magnets, they attract to you energy, circumstances, and experiences that are consistent with those thoughts.

Your thoughts are also energy so your energy attracts to you what you’re experiencing in your world.

4) Effectiveness Is the Measure of Truth

When working with subtle energy, some people might argue whether it is valid or not since we aren’t using scientific method to prove things out.

We just consider the results we are getting, and if it is effective then we consider that to be the truth.

5) Intention Is Everything

As long as your intention is clear about what you’re trying to do – even if you don’t do the technique exactly right – you’re still going to get the results that you’re looking for.

All people exchange energy with other people and with their environment.

However, some people, who we call “Energy Empaths” are more sensitive to this process than most others.

Everyone experiences negative emotions over the course of their day.

We are designed energetically to be able to process this energy by grounding it out into the earth.

However, most people are “shut down” and cannot process this energy for themselves.

Their energy processing channels are too small or are blocked and so the energy stays bottled up.

You can think of it as building up like steam in a pressure cooker.

Energy Empaths have relatively large energy processing channels.

When they get close enough to a person with built up negative energy, it gets absorbed by the empath through a process much like osmosis.

People connect with one another energetically through “Aka cords.” These are etheric “tubes” that connect energy fields and allow for the transfer of energy and information.

Energy Empaths are born hard-wired to process energy from the environment—they begin doing so from the moment they are born.

This means that their energy fields will absorb and try to process the excessive or negative energy in other people’s energetic systems.

Most Energy Empaths have no control over this ability

Unless the Energy Empath has expanded their ability to process this energy transfer, this dense and/or negative energy might not be able to be processed through and harmlessly grounded out of their system.

When this happens, it “backs-up” into their system and can become stuck there, causing physical, mental and emotional distress.

Energy Empathy is a major factor in children in distress—behavioral problems, sickliness, hyper-sensitivity, etc.

The impact of negative energy on unskilled empaths can include all of the symptoms below and many more.

For this reason, it is very important that Energy Empaths be able to clean and protect their energy.

Feeling “blown-out” or overwhelmed by stimulus

“Bad” behaviours, especially those that are out of character (acting out)

Sudden mood swings or emotionality

Excess weight


Physical ailments: (these usually occur suddenly and without a visible cause)

Chronic or frequent illnesses





Sharp or dull aching pains


Muddled thinking


Joint pain

Blessing or Curse?

Many Empaths report that they feel that their empathic talent is a curse, that all they get from it is pain and discomfort.

However, the problem isn’t that they are processing other people’s negative energy, the problem is that they don’t know how to take care of their energy as they do this processing.

When you help another person dump off their negative energy, their energy frequency rises and they feel better and become more positive.

You literally “raise them up” and make them lighter.

The goal is to do this without any negative consequences to yourself.

Each body is composed of a different type of matter.

The vibration rate of the atoms at the physical level is the lowest and each higher level increases the vibratory rate with the Causal level being the highest

The first body is the physical body and it has the densest matter

The next layer is the energetic or etheric body.

This body is a mirror of the physical body with all of the organs and glands represented in it

Next is the astral/emotional body, which is much wider, and is affected by people’s feelings.

This layer changes color and shape depending on the feelings being experienced.

The next aura is the mental body, which is involved with the thought processes and intelligence of a person

The last aura is known as the causal body, soul, or higher self.

This is concerned more with perceptive feelings, intuition, and comprehension.

The Causal layer is an expression of the soul and so is built up over many lifetimes of accumulated soul experience


Chakras, otherwise known as the energy centres of the human body, have the function of grounding spiritual energies into the physical plane.

They are often described as “spinning wheels” of energy.

The major chakras are generally depicted as being aligned approximately along the vertical midline of the body.

Minor chakras are located in the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and at each joint, as well as at locations along the meridians of the body.

The Seven Basic Chakras Plus Soul Star and Earth Star

1) The Root Chakra — This is our connection to the physical plane and a symbol of our basic survival needs. An imbalance here can cause vanity, an obsession with the material, or the tendency to see things in “black and white.” Location: base of the spine. Color: Red

2) The Sacral Chakra — The source of our creative and procreative urges and drives, including sexuality. When this chakra is unbalanced, it can result in promiscuity, blind creative drive, or conversely it can create apathy or withdrawal from creative endeavors or sexual expression. Location: the genitals. Color: Orange

3) The Solar Plexus Chakra — This is the energy center for power and manifestation. An unbalanced solar plexus chakra will result in being underdeveloped, immature, overly sensitive, in blind rage and raw animal-like emotions, i.e. chaotic, out of control power. Location: solar plexus. Color: Yellow

4) The Heart Chakra — This is the energy center for love, both human and divine. When this chakra is unbalanced, the result can be a demanding, possessive nature, especially in love or one who is paranoid and codependent. Location: heart. Color: Green or Pink

5) The Throat Chakra — This is the center for expression and communication. When this chakra is out of balance, a person may be overly aggressive and dominant, talk too much, use speech to attack and hurt others, or be egotistical (telling herself she is, perhaps, more than she is); or in the inverse, be too timid to speak up for her rights or express her own thoughts, or live in denial of things which or situations which are harmful to her (not communicating with self). Location: throat. Color: Blue

6) The Forehead “Third-Eye” Chakra – This is the center for our psychic powers. When unbalanced, it can lead to psychic overload and mental breakdown, dogmatism, spiritual fanaticism and/or isolation; or in the inverse, insensitivity toward others, closed mindedness, bigotry and intolerance. Location: third eye just above and between the eyebrows. Color: Indigo

7) The Crown Chakra – Otherwise known as the thousand petaled lotus is our connection with the Cosmic or the divine. When it is unbalanced, one may lose touch with reality, become mentally unbalanced, or feel spiritually abandoned. Location: top of the head. Color: Violet

8) The Earth Star Chakra – This chakra is located about 12 inches beneath your feet. It connects the central channel into the earth grid, grounding the “Rainbow Bridge” of chakras into the planet. Color: Earth tones

9) The Soul Star Chakra – This energy centre is a vehicle of the Soul to communicate with and interact with the earthly incarnation. It can be called on to provide support, guidance, healing, love, and energy. Color: Brilliant white

To summarize, we can say these chakras represent our basic physical and spiritual needs:

Root Chakra — Survival and operation

Sacral Chakra — Creativity and procreation

Solar Plexus Chakra — Manifestation of desires

Heart Chakra — Love

Throat Chakra — Communication and expression

Forehead Chakra — Psychic connections and powers

Crown Chakra — Divine connection

Earth Star Chakra — Earth connection

Soul Star Chakra — Support and involvement from your Soul

All these energy centres are connected with each other through a central channel (Rainbow Bridge) that runs from above the Soul Star Chakra to below the Earth Star Chakra.

The purpose of this system is to create a mechanism that on an energetic level can manifest the divine into the physical plane.


It is very important to keep your energy bodies cleaned and maintained in good health. And because our environment is so filled with dirty and negative energy, this requires daily attention.

There are many ways to clean your auric field, several of which are described below.

Spiritual Waterfall

The Spiritual Waterfall technique is used to cleanse your energy bodies of loose negative energy and debris. It can also be used anytime you are around other people and start to feel that your auric field is picking up a lot of negative or dirty energy.

1) To do this technique, simply imagine yourself under a waterfall of white energy that completely covers your auric field

2) Visualize it cleansing all of the negative and dirty energy from your physical body and energy field and see it draining deep into the earth

3) Continue until your energy field is clean and bright

4) Optionally, use other colors for different effects: pale blue for cooling and calming, pale green for deeper cleansing, pale pink for soothing and love, red for prosperity and business opportunities, orange for fun

Salt Baths for Cleansing

You can physically clean your energy field by taking a bath with either Epsom salts or healthy salts such as Hawaiian, Himalayan, or sea salts. In a shower, you can rub the salts over your skin and then rinse them off.

Effect of Diet

Adopting a vegetarian diet (non-meat: eggs, cheese, & milk are okay) is very valuable for the spiritual aspirant.

People who eat a vegetarian diet have a greater degree of sensitivity and usually do not attract so many negative psychic conditions or parasitic entities as does the meat-eater.

Animals that are the basis of the modern meat-based diet are raised in “factories.” These factories subject the animals to horrific conditions for their entire short lives. These conditions produce negative emotions that are embedded into the animal’s bodies at a cellular level. In addition, their manner of death ensures that the animals are terrified at the time of death, which further pollutes the animal’s cells with dense and negative energy.

The expression “you are what you eat” is literally true.

When you eat animals with cells embedded with negative emotions, you are taking those emotions and adding them to your physical body, thus lowering your vibration and diminishing your sensitivity.

It is easy to see why a society that eats a diet such as this would fearful, violent, and unevolved spiritually.

The “Burn & Purge” Method

This is a rapid method for thoroughly cleansing dense or negative energy from your chakras, physical body, and auric field.

1) Visualize all of your chakras at once with the intention of seeing the quantity of dense or negative energy contained in them. Imagine all of that energy being burned to ashes instantly as with a super-hot white laser-like flame.

Purge the ashes from your chakras in an instant with a “flash flood” of white light. See the purged energy draining deeply into the earth and being absorbed there by the entities that use this form of energy.

Your chakras should be bright and shining. If not, repeat this process until they are clear

2) Visualize your physical body with the intention of seeing the quantity of dense or negative energy contained there. (This is actually your Etheric body.) Imagine all of that energy being burned to ashes instantly as with a super-hot white laser-like energy. Purge the ashes from your body in an instant with a “flash flood” of white light. See the purged energy draining deeply into the earth and being absorbed there by the entities that use this form of energy. Repeat this step using a hot red and yellow flame to burn off the densest, lower vibration energy. Your body should be bright and shining. If not, repeat the process

3) Visualize your auric field with the intention of seeing the quantity of dense or negative energy contained there.

Imagine all of that energy being burned to ashes instantly as with a super-hot white laser-like energy. Purge the ashes from your auric field in an instant with a “flash flood” of white light. See the purged energy draining deeply into the earth and being absorbed there by the entities that use this form of energy.

Repeat this step using a hot red and yellow flame to burn off the densest, lower vibration energy.

Your auric field should be bright and shining. If not, repeat this process until it is clear

4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 using a red/yellow flame to burn off lower vibration energy.

Energy Field Cleansing Machine

This is a quick way for removing energy hooks and objects and most dense and negative energy in your auric field and chakras.

Hooks are created by people who are trying to control, influence or manipulate you.

Objects come from people mentally projecting them at you

1) Visualize a machine consisting of a lighted platform with a ring of bright electric violet light at the top that is large enough to contain your entire auric field.

2) Visualize your body standing on the platform in an ultraviolet flame

3) Move the ring of light down your energy field starting from just above the top of your auric field.

As this ring of light moves down your energy field, visualize it using a laser-like circle of brilliant light to burn away any dense, negative energy or energy hooks

4) Continue until it has passed over your entire energy field and back to above your head

5) Cleanse any remaining energetic debris with the spiritual waterfall

Ridding Unwanted Energy Life Forms (E.L.F.’s) –

The Energy Net Techniques

The human body is host to literally millions of other organisms, it is quite literally an ecosystem where many organisms coexist and generally benefit each other.

In fact, 10% of your dry body weight is independent organisms that live in your body!

Your energy bodies are similar in that other energy organisms, which we refer to as Energy Life Forms (E.L.F.’s) at times cohabitate in your energy field.

Most of the time these are not noticeable.

However, sometimes they interfere with your energy field’s normal function, and they throw a “monkey wrench into the works.”

When this happens, it is important to pull the E.L.F’s out (like taking ticks off your physical body) and get rid of them.

The energy net is an easy and powerful technique that can also be used on yourself, other people, objects and animals to rid them of E.L.F’s.

Following are the steps for this process:

1) Begin by slowing your breathing

2) Invoke your higher-self participation by saying “As the Soul-infused personality and the personality infused with the Soul, I invoke the One”

3) Imagine a large net shaped like an oval made of high-vibration white light

4) Drop this net completely over the object or person to be cleared, including its entire energy field, and state the intention to “trap all negative E.L.F’s.” Know that any E.L.F’s within the net are now trapped. Command them to freeze and not resist—they must obey

5) Pull the net with the E.L.F’s trapped in it off the person or object

6) Now imagine a huge spinning vortex of energy in the ground, like you are looking into the top of the funnel. This vortex is a conduit to other dimensions

7) Command the E.L.F’s to “return to your source and stay there.”

Then extend the net deep into the vortex and see it and the E.L.F’s disappear

8) Sense the energy in the subject to confirm that the E.L.F’s are gone


Crossed Arms and Legs

When you fold your arms across your chest you shut off your energy field from other people. Crossing the arms closes off the upper body and crossing legs closes off the lower body.

This is a fast way to protect yourself from energetic or emotional attack.

However, to keep the energetic information flowing, put your attention on your crown and heart chakras and project love to the other person.

Protective Capsule

One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from negative energy and people for a longer period of time is to surround yourself with a protective capsule.

You do this by visualizing an egg-shaped capsule of light, usually white, completely surrounding your energy field. When you create this capsule, it is important that you imbue it with specific qualities:

Impenetrable to negative energy, intentions, influences, E.L.F’s, and thought forms

Open for positive energy and information to enter

A hole in the top to connect with your higher self ! A hole in the bottom to allow your negative energy to ground out

With a specific duration for how long you want the protection to last

Doubt weakens all energy work, so it is very important to hold a strong conviction and confidence in the effectiveness of your shield.

Also, negative thoughts and emotions on your part can weaken or destroy your shield.

So, it is important to stay calm and centered.

Triple Layer Protective Capsule

White light degrades over time because it is unstable.

A triple layer of light is much stronger than a single layer. Make your protective shield with two layers of brilliant white light and with an outer layer of deep purple or violet color. Making the outer surface a mirror helps reflect back any negative energy or attacks. The process is as follows: !

Invoke your divine guidance.

Visualize an oval shaped capsule of violet light around your entire energy field with two inner layers of white light.

Affirm silently “I am shielded from all negative energy and contaminants, all forms of attacks, all harm and danger. So be it.

This shield is impregnable and cannot be penetrated except for positive energy and information So be it.

This shield will last a duration of X hours. So be it. This shield is internally permeable. So be it.”

In crowded spaces, shrink the shield down to fit you like “shrink wrap.” Say “Shield, shrink tight against my skin.” To return it to its former shape, say “Shield return to your normal shape.”

Cutting AKA cords

Aka cords are etheric “tubes” that connect energy fields and allow for the transfer of energy and information.

These attach anytime you are physically close enough to other people for the energy fields to connect, or any time you think deeply about another person.

These cords can transfer energy away from you, causing you to feel tired or weak. They can also transfer energy into your system.

As an Energy Empath, this is usually dense, dirty, or negative energy that can have many negative impacts on your body, mind, and emotions if you cannot process it through quickly enough.

Cutting the negative Aka cords stops this transfer of energy.

1) The process to cut the negative Aka cords starts with visualizing the multitudes of cords where they connect in your solar plexus and abdomen

2) Then imagine cutting them right next to the skin with a sharp knife, or laser beam or other cutting object, saying as you do “cut negative cords”

3) Next, imagine drawing the ends back into your energy system and cover the area with ice to cool the heat from this process and then cover the ice with earth

4) Finally, mentally seal the area with metal (like a suit of armor) to complete the closure

Filtering AKA cords

Occasionally, your Soul will not let you cut an Aka cord because it is serving a higher purpose to keep it connected.

This usually happens when the Aka cord is with a close relative, but not always.

In these cases, you can filter the negative energy out before it reaches your body, and eliminate the negative affect on you.

1) Start by visualizing the negative cord that cannot be cut and notice where it connects

2) Next, visualize a filter (like a strainer or coffee filter) that cuts across the cord and instruct it to filter out all negative energy and emotions and visualize this negative energy running down a downspout (like you would see on a gutter on a house) deep into the ground

3) You should feel immediate relief

4) Use the energy cleansing techniques to clean up your energy field

Disconnecting from “Energy Vampires”

If someone is draining energy from you, such as the feeling of an “energy vampire,” you can help them get their energy needs meet without cutting them off completely.

1) Start by visualizing the aka cord coming in from that person as having two components.

One part is sending energy from the person and the other part is draining energy from you

2) Imagine grabbing the cord that is draining energy and pull it out of you

3) Next, visualize connecting the end of that cord to the own person’s higher self. One way to do this is to imagine a brilliant white light above the person’s head and connect the cord to it to obtain the energy they need

4) In this way, the person gets their replenishing energy from the source they should have been accessing all along


One way to clear excess or negative energy is to ground the energy into the earth through a grounding cord.

To do this, imagine a cord starting at the base of your spine and run it down deep into the earth.

Visualize the excess or negative energy flowing down this cord and dump it out deep into the earth. There are beings in the earth which will use this energy.

There are many other ways to ground. Some of these are:

Exercise: Aerobics, Jogging, walking, Yoga and Tai -Chi, Sleeping, Hugging a tree, Hiking, Massage, Petting/holding animals, Gardening,

When you feel yourself hooked by an emotion, you can return to a calm state by following these steps:

1) Take several slow deep breaths

2) Think of someone or something that you love unconditionally and feel this love in your heart area and visualize it is a bright, sparkling white light

3) While continuing to breathe deeply, feel this love expanding throughout your body and out into your energy field until you are saturated with love

4) Finally, extend this love to the source of the emotional upset and include a blessing as described below


Return energetic or emotional “attacks” with an immediate and heartfelt blessing.

Blessing protects you, keeps you centered and calm while destroying or deflecting the attack, and has positive effects on the perpetrator.

The intention must be an unconditional blessing, NOT to eliminate the attack (which is just a form of counter-attack).

Focus on your heart and project love as you think something such as “Bless this person with divine light, love, understanding, and patience. May he/she have peace in his/her heart and feel unconditional love.


Daily Energy Maintenance Procedure

It is important to adopt a daily procedure for keeping your energy bodies cleansed and maintained.

This should include activities upon awakening and getting ready for bed, and during the day as you feel yourself being affected by negative or dirty energy.

Here’s a simple example for you to follow:

When You Awake

Say a prayer or affirmation to connect you with spirit

Cut your Aka cords

Cleanse your energy field with the spiritual waterfall

Setup your protective capsule

Do yoga or other energy stimulation exercises

Ground your energy

During the day

Cleanse your work area with the spiritual waterfall

Use your energy sensing abilities to make you aware of the quality of energy that individuals or places have

Cut your Aka cords when you feel a negative energetic effect

Cleanse your energy field with the Burn and Purge method

Cleanse your energy field of hooks with the Energy Cleansing Machine technique

Reset your protective capsule as needed

Compress or expand your energy field as needed under the circumstance

Ground your energy periodically

Return psychic or energetic attacks with blessings

When You Prepare for Bed

Say a prayer of gratitude

Cut your Aka cords

Cleanse your energy field with the spiritual waterfall

Cleanse your bedroom and bed with the spiritual waterfall

Ground your energy.

Ask to go into a Healing Chamber and ask one of the Angels to take you to the right one for you at that time.

I hope you have found this information useful with regards to keeping your energy clear.

Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not be angry.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.

The Reiki principles are spiritual ideals. By adopting these precepts you will add balance and substance to your life. It is important that you realise that you are not expected to live every moment of your life within the framework of these ideals. As humans, we are all imperfect, and that is why each principle begins with “Just for today.” You can without pressure or stress work on improving yourself daily. If you slip up today, you can always begin again tomorrow. The more you work with the principles, the more you will condition yourself to adopt them as a way of life.

To become more familiar with the Reiki principles it is advisable to read them aloud at least twice a day. You may wish to place a large copy of the ideals in a picture frame. Then you could position the copy in a prominent place where you are sure to see it each day, or if you are going to practise Reiki professionally, place it in your healing room. The Five Reiki principles mean different things to each one of us. Meditation will help to unlock your own perceptions.

Simply sit or lie down in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Repeat one of the ideals several times aloud using it as a mantra. As you drift into a meditative state become aware of what happens inside your mind and body. You may experience many different feelings, emotions and thoughts. If you do this exercise in a group share your experiences and write down everything that happened during the meditation. It is interesting to look at your notes on this exercise on a regular basis to see how you have grown by adopting these precepts. Repeat the exercise of meditating on each principle annually and compare notes or if in a group setting discuss the differences that have taken place.

The 5 Reiki Principles – Just For Today I Will Not Worry

Worry causes stress and anxiety leading to an imbalance of the mind-body and spirit and blockage to the root chakra.

The best way to overcome worry is to accept that all of us are faced with difficulties and setbacks in our lives. How we respond to them determines how we ultimately lead our lives.

If you choose to respond negatively by getting upset and anxious towards one of life’s setbacks you have chosen to damage the balance of your mind body and spirit.

If you respond positively by accepting the setback as an opportunity to learn you can live a happier and more fulfilling life.

Allow yourself time each day to really laugh and have fun. Watch a funny movie or television show. Read a humorous book or magazine. Whatever it takes to make you laugh — do it. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Man surrounds himself with images of himself.” This wonderful pearl of wisdom teaches us that if you want to be happy mix with happy people. Likewise, if you want to be negative and constantly worrying you simple need to associate with people who are negative and worrisome.

Laughter is a wonderful healer. It has been proven through numerous studies that laughter can heal and in some cases prevent life-threatening illnesses. Use this knowledge to live a healthier and longer life. Take responsibility for how you deal with life’s setbacks. Have fun — life’s too short to waste it worrying.

Use Reiki to re-balance your mind body and spirit and boost your resolve.
Place one hand on the root chakra and the other hand on the heart chakra.
Reiki will bring your mind body and spirit into equilibrium.
Keep your hands over these chakra points for as long as you intuitively feel you need to.
This Reiki technique will remove the blockages caused by stress, worry and anxiety.
It can be used for self-healing or on another person.

The 5 Reiki Principles – Just For Today I Will Not Be Angry

Anger is an emotion. When we get angry we lose control of that emotion. In order to live by the above principle, we must understand what triggers our anger and how we can choose to remove this destructive emotion from our being.

In every confrontation that leads to anger the person or thing pushing your anger button has complete power and control over you.

This simple realisation allows you to take back control of your emotions and as such, you can now choose to respond to a situation in a positive way rather than react to a situation in a negative way.

Every time you meet someone there is an exchange of energy. If you are both happy and find the meeting was enjoyable then the energy exchange is neutral. However, if you lose control of your emotions and become angry, the other person steals your energy. Likewise, if someone gets angry at you then you are stealing their energy.

With this simple philosophy, you can counter the endless situations or people that in the past have triggered your anger and caused you to react in an unhealthy manner. Next time someone honks their car horn at you or criticises you for no apparent reason smile and say to yourself I am not going to let you steal my energy.

Just imagine how much better you will feel when you choose not to react to negative people or situations; how many times in the past have you shouted abuse at another car driver and still felt the anger in your stomach an hour or so later. That person stole your energy. They probably drove on laughing at how silly you looked when you lost your composure. You allowed them to cause you stress, anger and probably indigestion. Only one person came out of this confrontation with their energy intact and it wasn’t you.

Anger is a choice response. Decide each day not to allow your energy to be stolen from you by negative people or situations. On physical level anger can cause stomach and digestive disorders. Choose to live a healthier life free from anger.

Use Reiki to assist the rebalancing process.
Place one hand on the third eye chakra and the other hand on the root chakra.
Keep your hands there for as long as you intuitively feel is necessary.
This Reiki technique will help you control and eliminate this destructive emotion.
It can be used for self-healing or on another person.

The 5 Reiki Principles – Just For Today I Will Do My Work Honestly

Honesty means different things to different people. Many people feel it is fine to take home a few pens from the office, the company turn over millions in profit each year so they can afford to lose a few items of stationery.

While another person will judge the same incident as an act of theft and believe that anyone found stealing stationery should be dismissed and charged with theft and even prosecuted.

Everyone at some point is dishonest. You may not steal from another person or company but instead steal from yourself.

For example, if you have the talent to help people and you choose not to then you are stealing from yourself by denying your gift.

You are also stealing from the people who could benefit from your talents. Wasting your time on meaningless pursuits such as watching television for hours each day is stealing from your sacred and special time on Earth. Try to live your life to the best of your ability as honestly as you can. Honesty lives inside of you and doesn’t care about being placed where others can view it.

Life tends to give us what we need, it may not be what we want but it will be what we need. Karmically throughout our lives, we receive what we need to grow and learn in this lifetime.

If we grasp these lessons and grow accordingly we will become spiritually enlightened. Instead of wasting your life complaining of the things that have happened to you, and the problems you face.

Step back for a moment on a regular basis and discover and appreciate the many blessings in your life.

Make a list of all your blessings. You will be amazed at how many wonderful things there are to give thanks for. Leave the materialistic things aside. They are shallow and meaningless. Pay attention to, and focus on the things that are free and bring joy and humility to your life. For example, your mind, body, spirit, health, family, friends, flowers, trees, sea, sun, love, faith, knowledge, the countryside, animals, birds, etc., the list is endless.

When you appreciate the true wonders of life and let go of the materialistic things you are bound to enjoy your life more.

Place one hand on the third eye chakra and the other hand on the occipital ridge.
Use Reiki to re-balance this principle in your life or in the life of another person.

 Just For Today I Will Be Kind to My Neighbour and Every Living Thing

The law of karma states that what goes around comes around. Send out love and you will receive love back in return. Send out kindness and you will receive kindness. Send out healing and you receive healing. Send out positive thoughts and you will receive positive results.

Karma is a double-edged sword. Send out negative thoughts and you will get negative results. Living within this precept will give you a happier and less stressful life full joy peace and love.

To bring balance to this principle for yourself or others first place one hand on the third eye chakra and the other hand on the root chakra. When you feel you are ready, move your hand from the third eye chakra to the throat chakra, and move your hand from the root chakra to the heart chakra keeping it there until you intuitively feel you have finished.

It is important to remember that the Reiki principles are only guides for a happier and more fulfilling life. Use meditation to unlock the true meaning of these precepts and incorporate them into your life. They will transform your life.

The 5 Reiki Principles are not commandments; they are simply gifts of wisdom.

Hope this helps you on your journey,

You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body. ~ C.S. Lewis

The human body is made up of over 50 trillion cells. Each cell contains omniscient wisdom and is connected to the universe and every living thing within it. A good analogy is to think of the universe as a huge ocean of water. Every living thing within that ocean is like a tiny droplet. Together these droplets make up and are part of Reiki the universal life force.

Reiki is part of our genetic structure; an in built intelligence that energises the mind body and spirit. Reiki stimulates growth, health, life and healing. When it is freely allowed to flow around the body it can keep us alive and healthy for over one hundred and twenty years.

Unfortunately, bad habits and poor choices result in the flow of Reiki being stifled. It is important to note that Reiki cannot be destroyed. Even when we die and the life force leaves our body it continues to exist as part of the universe. Through neglect and ignorance we abuse this vital component of life.

When the mind body and spirit are in harmony the biological intelligence that governs the body’s resources and allows it to heal itself and function correctly are intensified. Reiki is the key that unlocks the body’s optimum capabilities. There are seven main energy centres in the body that control the flow of the universal life force. They are called the Chakra’s. Each chakra is responsible for supplying energy to specific parts of the body. When they are blocked or clogged the body becomes sick and the flow of energy is diluted.

A full Reiki treatment reopens the chakras and re-balances the flow of the universal life force around the body. A person will normally need four full treatments on four consecutive days to boost the flow of Reiki energy. This will stimulate the body’s immune system and natural healing abilities. Normally the body will begin by cleansing itself of toxins. As the poisons are removed, the body becomes re-balanced and the healing process can begin.

Many cultures have developed techniques and disciplines that stimulate the flow of KI energy around the body. However, Reiki is the easiest to learn and administer. The techniques are simple to master. The results are profound.

How Reiki Works – The 7 Major Chakra Points

The Crown Chakra (white or violet) is positioned on top of the head. It represents enlightenment, intuition and spiritual vision. Energy supplied to the pineal glands, upper brain and right eye.
The Third Eye Chakra (Indigo) is positioned in the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows. It represents psychic perception, telepathy and ESP. Energy supplied to the spine, lower brain, left eye, pituitary gland, nose ears and central nervous system.
The Throat Chakra (light blue) is positioned in the centre of the neck. It represents self-expression, emotions, communication and creativity. Energy supplied to the throat, thyroid gland, upper lungs, arms and digestive tract.
The Heart Chakra (rose and green) is positioned in the middle of the chest. It represents emotions, love, devotion, spiritual growth and compassion. Energy supplied to the heart, thymus gland, liver, lungs and the circulation system.
The Solar Plexus Chakra (yellow) is positioned just above the navel. It represents the centre of the body; food is assimilated, tuned into energy and distributed throughout the body. Energy supplied to the emotions, stomach, liver, digestion, gall bladder and the pancreas.
The Sacral Chakra (orange) is positioned just below the navel. It represents sexual energy, perceptions and the first impressions of people. Energy supplied to the reproductive organs, legs and the glands.
The Root Chakra (red) is positioned at the genitals. It represents life, physical vitality, birth and creation. Energy supplied to the spine, kidneys, bladder and the suprarenal glands.

Reiki is ever-present in our bodies. This means anyone can harness this profound inbuilt intelligent energy for healing.

However, without being attuned to the universal life force you will only be using about 10-20% of its capacity for healing.

Madam Takata explained it best when she described Reiki as being similar to radio waves. We cannot see them but we know they are everywhere around us. When we turn on a radio and tune into the radio waves we can pick up a signal. That signal is turned into a radio programme. Similarly, the universal life force is everywhere, although we cannot see it unless we use Kirlian photography.

When we are tuned into the energy by a Reiki Master we are able to harness Reiki to heal ourselves and others. This gift of healing remains with us for the rest of our lives. We can only lose it if we use it for negative or destructive purposes. Reiki is pure and it needs to be treated as such.

Reiki is channelled through the hands. When you place your hands on your own body or the body of another person for the purpose of healing you connect with the universal life force. The wisdom of Reiki then goes to work to bring about healing, balance and whatever is needed on a holistic level.

The best way to understand how Reiki works is to experience it.


God be in my head, and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes, and in my looking.
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking.
God be in my heart, and in my thinking.
God be at my end, and at my departing. – Anon




Some Energy Healing Misconceptions ….

In my early 30’s, I met a woman named Jayne who called herself a Reiki Healer – she was a Medium and during my Reading, she told me she felt the energy pulsating from my hands as she touched them.  I had only heard a little about Reiki and energy healing and I thought it was all a bit too woo-woo, at that time, to be totally honest.  However, I thought about what she had said as the things she told me in my Reading were extremely accurate and that gave weight to her comment about being a natural healer.

I thought about this some more and booked myself on a Reiki Level 1 course.

I found a wonderful Reiki Master who is also a Medium and he explained how everything was made of energy – even the Earth – and I could draw that energy into my body and direct the energy to others.

I was shocked to find, as I held my hands slightly above him, that I could detect different sensations and vibrations emanating from his body – hot and cold, sharp and smooth, full and depleted.  All of a sudden, my “super sensitivity” made sense. Jayne had said I was a natural Energy Healer and I now believed it myself.   I played around with the energy making a chi ball (which is just a ball of energy and practised feeling Aura’s – It was a fabulous experience and from not knowing what energy work was, this all really started to make sense to me.

The term “Energy Healer” may invoke images of crystals and incense and Angel Cards, but it’s actually a legitimate profession now that’s practised in medical settings all over the world and is recognised widely by our NHS.

Here are some myths about Energy Healing to watch out for:

Energy Healing is a ‘new age therapy’  

Many people think that Energy Healing is a New-Age therapy but ‘chi’ and ‘prana’ have been around for thousands of years in Asia.   Before there were hospitals and doctors, the local medicine woman or shaman was ‘laying on hands’ to heal illness and treat disease.  Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic Medicine still use energy points and channels to measure health and well-being today.

Energy Healing is non-scientific

One of the most common things I hear from people when I tell them that I practice Energy Medicine is that there is no science to back it up.   The reality is that we have hundreds of research studies demonstrating the benefits of Energy Healing for improved immune function, reduced pain, faster recovery from surgery and dozens of other conditions.

Nobody is using Energy Healing

Many people —between 30 and 70 percent of adults depending on their age —use health care approaches developed outside of mainstream Western or conventional medicine.  This includes Energy Healing therapies like Acupuncture, Qi qong, and Healing Touch.  Energy Healing is now used in Hospices and by some Health Care providers.

Energy Healers are all ‘woo woo’

You don’t have to wear flowing skirts and flowers in your hair to be an Energy Healer. In fact, most practitioners are nurses, doctors, massage therapists and other licensed professionals.

I’ve taught Energy Healing for several years now and by no way do I wear flowing skirts and hippy clothes!  I’m just your regular mum/housewife and have a house full of animals so am in jeans and comfy clothing most of the time.

Energy Healing requires special talent or ability  

ANYONE can learn how to be an Energy Healer.

If you have a calling to help others, if you feel at home with spiritual things, if you feel charged when you are in nature or sacred spaces, if you believe in the interconnectedness of mind-body-spirit – these are common characteristics for people who are drawn to Energy Healing.

If you’re wondering where to start with your career in Energy Healing, sign up for an in-person or distant Reiki Healing Session.

I would love for you to be able to feel and experience Energy Healing for yourself.

I am a Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Master/Teacher and I not only give Reiki to my clients and their pets (yes animals LOVE Reiki) I have clients I visit who are cats, dogs and other small furries!  (Well their owners are my clients who are looking for a holistic healing approach to treat their beloved animals).

I hope I have cleared up a few of the myths about Energy Healers for you and please feel free to contact me if you would like to book a healing session (either in person or a distant healing session).

Sending you lots of love and healing energy!

Are You An Empath?

I’ve been thinking what to write about for this blog so I thought a good place to start would be to talk about being an Empath and what it’s all about.

So what exactly is an Empath?

Have you ever wondered why people who are strangers or people you hardly know open up to you and share their most trusted thoughts? Do you have an instant connection with animals? Are you unable to watch violence, cruelty, or tragedy on television or in the movies because your soul just can’t bear it? Do you have an instant knowing about the character of the people you meet upon first meeting them? Are you highly spiritual and find the physical world and everything in it heavy? Are you often tired and have physical ailments that cannot be medically explained? If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions you may be an “Empath.

Empaths are people who are highly sensitive to the energy and the emotions of the people, animals, and sometimes even the spiritual imprints that exist around them.  Do you ever walk into a building and pick up on the ‘negative vibes’ or the ‘energy’ of the building?  Does this sometimes overwhelm you where you feel you have to get out of there?  Do you pick up on people’s moods and feelings without them saying a word?  Do you walk into a room and ‘feel the atmosphere’?  If so you could be an Empath.

Just as with every other healthy minded individual, Empaths have the ability to empathise with whom they are interacting. We are able to relate to how others feel and understand what they are experiencing. What sets Empaths apart is our higher-than-average level of empathy, the ease at which we can connect to the feelings of others, and the range within which we can do it. And where others experience feelings of empathy that are cued by interacting with others, empaths do not always. We do not have to rely on the physical senses of sight, hearing, or touch, or clues from our interactions with others, to pick up on the emotions and energies around us. We can feel and internalise emotions from people near and far.  I personally feel it can be a gift and a curse all in one.  It’s important for Empaths to be fully grounded and protected spiritually at all times so you don’t ‘feel’ the pain of the world all the time.   Can you relate to any of these feelings?  If so it’s important that you also ground and protect yourself daily too.  In my previous newsletter I talked about how to ground and protect yourself – you should do this on a daily basis.  I also cut cords with everyone each night before I go to sleep.  This isn’t a ‘bad’ thing and sometimes people ask why cut cords with people you love?  What I do is ask and intend that I am cutting cords with all ‘that does not serve me for my highest and greatest good’ and by doing this I know only the right cords will be cut.

If you read my blogs on Grounding your energy & Protecting your energy, you will have even more insight as to how as an empath you can look after yourself.

I hope you find this helpful.
