Have you thought about peace lately? Safe Reiki hosts Peace Education Programme (PEP) sessions which last an hour. I do not teach anything, you learn from the DVDs. You get a workbook and some written materials to take away and keep. There are gaps in the session to allow you to write notes, share any thoughts or think about what you’ve just seen. There are no tests and you learn at your own pace.

My motivation for hosting the Peace Education Programme comes from the inspiration and insight I have gained. The DVDs are well-produced, I love watching them and I think Blackburn folk will enjoy them. They communicate heart to heart, so if you listen with your heart, rather than your mind, you will get a lot out of the PEP. There are many profound truths to be learned. Note that the peace we are talking about is non-religious and accessible to people of all varieties, even Lancashire folk like me :-) Try it and see – PEPs are free and without obligation.

We are billion year old carbon - Joni Mitchell

A Safe Reiki session usually lasts an hour.

  1. Come in, take your shoes off, turn your mobile off, make yourself comfortable
  2. I will explain hands-on or hands-off Reiki, so you can decide which you are most comfortable with
  3. Fill in a form with your name, a contact phone number or email, a few health checkboxes and permission for me to share Reiki with you
  4. Tell me if you wish Reiki healing for anything specific
  5. I ask you to meaningfully read out loud the Five Reiki Principles to show your heart is in the right place for this Reiki session
  6. You may sit down or lie on a couch, close your eyes and relax. If relaxation is a problem, don’t worry, feel your body weight pressing down, notice the movement in your body as you breathe, listen to the soft music that is playing, focus on what you feel rather than what you think, and let Reiki naturally relax you
  7. Whether you choose hands-on or hands-off Reiki, I respect your dignity and privacy at all times and do not touch sensitive or sexual areas
  8. I usually work from head to toe and this takes about half an hour give or take 15 minutes
  9. People report feeling heavy like a stone, light and floaty, energetic, sleepy or nothing unusual at all. Your experience will be unique to you. Reiki will have occurred though, so I will give you a glass of water to help ground you into the here and now and welcome you back to Blackburn, Lancashire
  10. We can exchange feedback about the session and discuss any other matters. That’s it!

Can you feel it? - Mr Fingers

what keeps that moon up where it is?
What keeps that moon up where it is?

“The universal life force energy” or, as I call it, “the energy of life”, can suggest imagery, concepts and ideas of all kinds. To know what it really is, we need the experience of it for ourselves. I think this poem by Rumi suggests, describes or evokes the experience of Reiki as well as any words I’ve read.

Some Kiss We Want

There is some kiss
We want with our whole lives,
The touch of Spirit on the body.
Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately
It needs some wild darling!
At night, I open the window and ask the moon
To come and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door and
Open the love-window.
The moon won’t use the door,
Only the window.

Safe Reiki in Blackburn does Reiki and also hosts the Peace Education Programme. So why and what’s the connection?

For me, peace came first and I practice peace every day, trying to stay in conscious contact with the amazing energy within me. I’ve been doing this most of my life. Then I discovered Reiki and and its healing, energizing possibilities in 2016 at a Reiki share in Blackburn. Reiki is about feeling and now I had an opportunity to do something based on feeling rather than words and ideas, so it felt just right for me. Words can never quite express our feelings inside, they always seem lacking, but Reiki gave me a chance to express myself without words and communicate something very special.

Something special about Reiki and peace

That something special is the peace within, the infinite, the true love, the essence of life, the undefinable oneness that is beyond words. (See how I’m struggling to put it into words? That’s because nobody can put it into words). That something special is also the Reiki healing, the energy flow through the chakras and meridians, through every cell in our body, the energy flow that people all have but experience it in different ways. Some people feel this as waves, others see it as colours, some float or feel weightless, for another it might be a euphoric pulsation, and another feels like an immovable rock with no desire to go anywhere for the next billion years, and many others just “feel good”.

Experience beyond words in Blackburn

So Blackburn Reiki and peace are both beyond words, just like they are beyond words anywhere in the country, anywhere in the world, so why not come and have the experience yourself right here in Blackburn?

Experience peace in Blackburn

The Peace Education Programme (PEP) is free without obligation and consists of 10 hour-long DVDs divided into easy chunks so you can write in your workbook, think about it or express your feelings. There are no exams, you’re not competing, you’re learning about yourself.

Experience Reiki in Blackburn

Reiki is free for the first session, with various discounts available, not because it is cheap but because once you’ve had the experience you realize that money just can’t buy this feeling and you want to share it with as many people as possible because it’s so good. You can feel more like your real self, let go of aches and pains and worries, and feel stronger and more ready to face the world. Reiki has also been know to cure illness, disease and chronic pain, so who knows what Reiki will do for you until you give it a try.

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.
