First Book In A Series Of Reiki Books
“Reiki Journeys: Stories of Personal and Spiritual Growth through Reiki”
As we celebrate the season of light, we can also take time to celebrate the Reiki that ignites the light within us. As part of my celebration, I’d like to share with you my newly published Reiki book, “Reiki Journeys: Stories of Personal and Spiritual Growth through Reiki.” The first of more Reiki books to come, this book offers stories from those who have found Reiki to be a catalyst for personal and spiritual transformation.
Introduction to New Reiki Book “Reiki Journeys”
“Reiki Journeys: Stories of Personal and Spiritual Growth through Reiki” is a gathering of voices, a sharing of experiences from those who have grown personally and spiritually through Reiki. This book is a window to a community of people from all walks of life who have been touched, and often times, transformed by Reiki. With all of the Reiki books to choose from, this Reiki book demonstrates, through first-person stories, how Reiki can be a catalyst for personal and spiritual growth.
As you look through this window, you will see that some of the stories speak to the ability of Reiki to help one find focus, clarity, and life purpose. Other stories unveil a discovery of something greater than “self” with a deeper connection to an all-embracing Higher Power. All of the stories show how Reiki has enhanced many aspects of everyday life.

Reiki Books For Self-Help
Within this Reiki book you’ll also find questions for self-reflection, and a Question and Answer section based on questions from Reiki students and clients collected from over a ten-year period of teaching Reiki, reading Reiki books, and giving Reiki treatment sessions. You’ll find more information about Reiki and its benefits, Reiki for pets, as well as where Reiki is being used today.
You may find a part of yourself reflected in some of the stories presented in “Reiki Journeys”. It’s pretty wonderful how we can all find things to relate to in another person’s story. Perhaps it’s because we’re all more alike than we are different, and we’re all connected to each other.
Physical Healing and Spiritual Growth
Reiki is a holistic modality. Sometimes we might perceive a physical healing through Reiki, and other times we might perceive a personal or spiritual healing. Since our physical bodies are connected to our emotional, mental, and spiritual energy systems, a “healing” in any one energy system also affects all of the other energy systems. In some of the “Reiki Journeys” stories, physical healings occur that provide a springboard for personal and spiritual growth. Sometimes there is personal and spiritual growth without an obviously visible physical healing. An example of this would be when Reiki helps to propel us towards our true life mission or when Reiki helps us to reach milestones in our lives. Some of the stories in my Reiki book “Reiki Journeys” speak to this aspect.
Also in My Book, Reiki and Intuition
Some of the stories in my new Reiki book “Reiki Journeys” reveal how Reiki can be a catalyst for intuitive development. Our intuition is very basic to us as humans. Animals also have a keen intuitive sense and they need it to survive in their environment. Our intuition can be very beneficial for us because it can help to guide us in making daily decisions, and it can help us in assisting our loved ones if we feel that they may need a helping hand at any given time. Reiki has helped many in developing the “inner knowing” we refer to as intuition.
Stepping Stone on a Path of Personal and Spiritual Growth
Reiki can be a stepping stone on a path of other holistic modalities. Reiki complements other modalities that we may use to help ourselves. Some of the stories in my new Reiki book “Reiki Journeys” demonstrate how Reiki came along after incorporating other modalities such as yoga or meditation.
For many, Reiki comes along in just the right time and in just the right way. Each story in “Reiki Journeys” is part of an individual’s sacred path, and Reiki has been an instrumental element in the next step on that path.

“This book is a must for anyone interested in Reiki. Be warned: you may not be able to put it down once you pick it up! I read it in one sitting. What struck me most as I read the personal stories of deeply moving Reiki experiences was the warmth and gentleness palpably emanating from each voice. This collection of stories from so many different people illustrates just how special and life-affecting Reiki can be. Reading it is like sitting in a room with a group of loving people who share a story or two to help you understand. For this reason especially, this book is a perfect complement to textbooks, manuals and topical books about Reiki. It takes the subject of Reiki and best represents how personal and profound an experience Reiki can be. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it.”
