Reiki is completely safe with no negative side effects. A Reiki session may be defined as safe contact with the energy of life for the purpose of healing. It requires no religion, belief or faith.

De-stress with Reiki Therapy

From birth, unless something is wrong, we heal naturally and we feel the joy of life. As we grow older, difficulties arise, stress happens. Reiki re-energizes the healing and feeling process. In the Reiki session, your role is to let the de-stressing and healing happen. My role is similar, plus I use Reiki hand positions. (There is no inappropriate touching and you remain fully clothed). Usually we both feel the positive effects of Reiki. Logically and rationally Reiki probably should not work, but give it a try and be pleasantly surprised! I certainly was. To get a better idea of what to expect, read about a typical Safe Reiki session in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Everything is energy and that's all there is to it - Albert Einstein

Before a Reiki session, I ask the client to show me their heart is in the right place by reading out loud the following principles of Dr Mikao Usui, who rediscovered Reiki in 1922.

Just for today I will let go of worry
Just for today I will let go of anger
Just for today I will earn my living with integrity
Just for today I will be kind to all living things
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings

We are stardust, we are golden - Joni Mitchell

“What’s it all about? Is true joy possible? Can I be fulfilled? What am I doing in Blackburn?” When we feel peace we get answers to these persistent questions. The peace we are talking about is non-religious and may be defined as safe contact with the energy of life for the purpose of self-knowledge, enjoyment and fulfilment.

Is Reiki safe? On our journey around the Sun, Earth is travelling at 67,000 miles an hour whilst it rotates at the speed of a bullet (about 1000 miles an hour).  Is anyone safe on our planet?

When you know what Reiki is, you can say with complete confidence that Reiki is completely safe with no negative side effects. But when you don’t know, is it safe to have a Reiki session even if it is free? Thankfully most of us have the common sense and confidence to give it a try and find out for ourselves, as I did.

For our safety, we need to know

There are some things that I believe but don’t know, but if it’s affecting me directly I need to know. Haven’t we all been duped by sharp practices or sharp practitioners and now we proceed very warily when spending money or trying something new? In an age when many political leaders and respected public figures are being found out to be frauds; in an age of fast and plentiful information and misinformation; in an age of trusting big profit-making corporations with our energy, utilities and transport infrastructures; and in this age of the internet, I bet most of us have been shocked and burned in some way, so the need to know for ourselves is more important than ever.

Reiki – new age or a timeless need?

Reiki is often categorized as a “new age” thing. That’s OK by me because I see new age stuff as mostly positive, idealistic and an attempt to push the boundaries of human consciousness rather than just accept the status quo. There are, of course, airy-fairy, dubious practices and people in it just to make money but in general “new age” often offers viable and natural alternatives from which to choose. Safe Reiki, for example, offers harmless natural healing that you can try free of charge to see if it suits you. My personal “new age” thinking behind this is really as old as the hills – Reiki helps me feel good and I want to share that.

Safe and secure when we know for sure

Reiki makes me feel very safe. I know from my own experience (not my thought or theory) that something intelligent and loving is taking care of me. “Ah but people like you are misguided and Reiki will lead you into dangerous occult practices”, a certain set of fear-mongers will tell us. But we are no longer so ready to accept the voice of authority. We are learning to trust ourselves. We will now get to know some of these “occult” people and discover they are more often than not honest people with strong principles who really enjoy their alternative ways of expressing their love of life. We’ve seen genocide in the name of religion, we’ve seen that the powers-that-be are NOT learning any lessons and we can clearly see that we are actually happier than those overloaded with power, money and propaganda machinery. Such is the power of knowing for yourself and practising Reiki and peace, and why Reiki is safe. But don’t just accept my words. Try it and see for yourself.

Reiki practitioners in Blackburn have learned from different Reiki masters and we have our own individual backgrounds, preferences and priorities, so Reiki sessions are going to vary. Many East Lancashire Reiki practitioners advertise various holistic services at the top of their lists – for example, one may focus on hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, another on massage and aromatherapy, another on psychic readings and tarot, another on crystal healing and Hopi Ear Candling – and Reiki is just one amongst many complementary therapies they offer.

Safe Reiki compared with other Blackburn practitioners

Here at Safe Reiki, I keep it simple and offer Reiki and an introduction to peace. Peace is not absence of war but is the ultimate experience that a human being can have. Reiki (rei – ki) and peace are inextricably intertwined and complement each other. The result is that all my conscious focus in on the energy that is keeping us alive – the ki, the chi, the qi, the life force, the source (call it what you will) – and my focus is not on the mind or body or the “spiritual” that other Blackburn practitioners may be offering.

My connection with the source (ki)

I first became conscious of the source (ki) in 1971 and have connected with it on a near-daily basis since 1973. So although my first Reiki session was in 2016, I have been in regular conscious connection with the energy of peace and Reiki for 44 years. In practical terms this means that every day I get in touch with the source within me, practise Reiki and live by the five Reiki principles. If I do that, all is well. Fortunately, the energy is in the best place possible, within me, so even on a bad day, I eventually make that connection, thankfully.
