Wishing you all a happy and magical New Year's Day!
I was looking at Nigel's site the other day and he had made a lovely card for a Reiki Master friend of his. So I have taken his idea.(Thank you Nigel) and made my own collage of Ancient Wisdom.
I don't like 'blowing my own trumpet' but I became a Reiki Master in 1997 and I believe the concepts and healing from myself and others have gotten me through some tough times.
There is such a difference between Healing and Curing. Some may think they are the same but there is a world of difference.
Back in '97 I had to really hunt for a Teacher,but it has grown in the meantime so it is much easier to find a Practitioner.
Some may also think it's contradicting Christianity. I waste no time with that thought. Reiki has been here thousands of years, even before Christianity. I have also read that some believe Christ spent time in the east with monks where he learned Reiki to help him with his healing ministry. I think that's a wonderful thought.
Anyway, to me they work side by side. I couldn't send out healing thoughts if I didn't believe in both. Who can say whether or not the great power of the Universe was created by the Great I AM?
I just accept it and rejoice.

This is my favourite photo of my Granddad lighting his pipe.
I remember taking it and this is what I looked like at the
time the pic was taken.
The boy with the thorn in his foot is a bronze I had that he cleaned
up for me.
Never a day goes by that I don't think of him.
