This review is from: Intuitive Reiki for Our Times: Essential Techniques for Enhancing Your Practice (Paperback)
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.
I had already intended to take Rowland's class; after reading this book, I am more interested than ever, not because the book is insufficient, but because her writing style is so engaging, that I want to study with her more! I have met her in person and reading her book does sound exactly like speaking with her in person. It's a good read, interesting, and well-planned out. I highly recommend it for anyone who is Reiki.
