Review

". . . fills a gap in Western training, examining the foundations of the intuitive experience and how it translates to healing. . . . Essential for any Reiki healer." (Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch, Sept 2006)

From the Back Cover

HEALTH /BODYWORK

Most Western Reiki practitioners are taught Reiki without acknowledgment of the integral role intuition can play in helping heal a client completely and permanently. Yet in Japan, practitioners must master the skill of using Reiki in an intuitive way at Shoden (entry) level before they are permitted to advance to the next level. In Intuitive Reiki for Our Times, Amy Rowland addresses the need for instruction in how to use intuition as a healing tool by presenting traditional techniques, both Western and Japanese, as well as new techniques that unite Reiki and intuition.

Rowland begins by focusing on the varieties of intuitive experience and the healing purposes such experiences serve. She then helps practitioners inventory their own intuitive abilities in order to establish a personal starting point for further development. Emphasizing self-guided study and continued learning through Reili practice, rather than the customary transmission of techniques from master to student, Rowland offers fully illustrated instruction in techniques that certified Reiki practitioners and teachers can readily apply. She concludes with a series of interviews with well-known Reiki masters--including William Lee Rand, Mari Hall, and Jane Anne Narrin--in which these masters share stories of spiritual turning points in their lives and their experiences using Reiki in client and self-treatment.

AMY Z. ROWLAND, M.A., is a certified Usui Reiki Master with twenty years of experience. She teaches Reiki in both Western (Usui Shiki Ryoho) and Japanese (Usui Reiki Ryoho) traditions and also teaches Reiki and Intuition workshops. The author of Traditional Reiki for Our Times, she lives in Pennsylvania. Her Web site is www.traditionalreiki.com.

More About the Author

Amy Zaffarano Rowland was born and raised in rural southeastern Pennsylvania, where she lives still, with her family and several cats. As a child, she was encouraged by her parents, who met each other in art school, to be creative. When she realized (at about age six) that focusing on becoming an artist would result in even more parental advice, she decided she would rather write. She hasn't really stopped since. She is best known for her books about Reiki, a form of bodywork and energy medicine, which she has been teaching since 1994, but she is happy when readers discover her other writing as well: fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

probably my favourite of new reiki books this year. THIS is how reiki should be encouraged in ourselves, our students and in others. Amy (whom I've never met) has written a wonderful book which offers much to think about, much to try and some GREAT approaches in learning to BE reiki and BE the energy. There are a good number of books out there wherein one can learn how to be sooooo Japanese and there are numbers of books which repeat the same old information but this book truly ADDS to the knowledge of reiki in the world... So far, of the over 125 books about Reiki which I own, this is one of my favourites.

So many reiki practitioners are taught how to do reiki, i.e, hand positions, varying symbols and techniques, meditation and so on, but so little time is actually spent helping the student of reiki to actually learn how to be OPEN to the intuitive flow that is essentially a part of true reiki practice. Most teachers, in fact, may not even be aware how to tap into the intuitive flow themselves.

How does reiki actually show us what to work on with a client? How do you learn to interpret the signals and signs you receive while giving a healing treatment? What steps can a reiki practitioner take to become more open to the messages contained within the human energy field and the flow of energy from the universe?

Rowland's book is chock full of *useful* and helpful information designed to teach both reiki students and other teachers *how* to be open and aware of these signs, these messages. Written in a concise, straightforward manner, the book is nonetheless a great storehouse of information that is much needed at this time and particularly in this country, where most of the reiki practitioners are left to sort out for themselves exactly what to do with what they "receive" from a client during a treatment.

Rowland teaches classes in Reiki and Intuition and this book is based on her work with these classes and with teaching students from all levels of Reiki how to tune in to their intuitive processes. As such, it is a great success. Rowland is neither self-important nor does she waste any time in criticism of any other practices or techniques; what is taught here can be implemented into ANY reiki practice, regardless of lineage or style.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Nyssa on September 19, 2007
Format: Paperback
This fascinating book is geared toward the person who already knows what reiki is and has already been attuned. I am attuned for Reiki I and II, and was introduced to many new ideas and ways of using reiki in this book. Mostly the book deals with the intuitive aspects of reiki, and this is a subject that was no more than mentioned in my training. The book presents in depth ideas about how reiki enhances intuition and how intuitive reiki can lead to more effective healing. For the person who knows nothing about reiki and wants to learn, I recommend "Practical Reiki" by Mari Hall. For the person who knows a little more about reiki, "Intuitive Reiki for Our Times" will be both interesting and inspirational. Someone who is interested in developing intuition might also like this book.

Format: Paperback
Most modern Reiki practitioners are missing the connection between Reiki and the role intuition can play in permanent healing; yet in Japan practitioners must master this intuitive way at the entry level before they can proceed. INTUITIVE REIKI FOR OUR TIMES: ESSENTIAL TECHNIQUES FOR ENHANCING YOUR PRACTICE thus fills a gap in Western training, examining the foundations of the intuitive experience and how it translates to healing. Practitioners can use this guide to identify intuitive experiences, learn how to apply it, and thoroughly integrate with Reiki training as a whole. Essential for any Reiki healer.

Amy Rowland offers practical advice for both the new Reiki practitioner and those who have many years of practice. The techniques for enhancing intuition are accompanied by pictures, and are very easy to follow. Amy gently reminds us of our responsibility when integrating intuition with Reiki so we may honor client healing on all levels. The stories are great, and underscore how important intuition can be in everyday life. I've been practicing intuitive Reiki for 15 years, and found this book to be a valuable resource which I'll refer to often, and recommend to my students.

I am blessed to know Amy Rowland, and was even included in

the book with one of my anecdotes. Nevertheless, I was inspired

and blessed beyond my expectations when reading this book.

Amy gave me an extra spurt of energy towards the loving practice

of Reiki and I've been a R.Master for several years, and a

professional intuitive for 25. She puts it all together in

a clear and useful manner. It made me want to do Reiki even

more than I do. I also feel even more comfortable in using my

intuitive style of Reiki work. She makes it OK.

Amy Rowland is a conscientious writer and doesn't include

a lot of meaningless fluff. Every word counts. You'll be

glad you got this book. I'm planning to get 20 of these for

the people on my Christmas list. Its that good!
