Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' Favorite
If you're interested in learning Reiki or just how Reiki works, this is the book for you. In Practical Reiki, author Alice Langholt begins with an explanation of Reiki, then goes on to inform the reader on the basics of Reiki, how to get attuned with the energy field of Reiki, how to state intention, and how to apply Reiki to yourself or others. The book explains how some people feel Reiki differently, and how the different levels of intuition work (although clairvoyance is not necessary to learn Reiki). Also included is information about the different chakras, their colors, and how they correlate to emotions and physical well being. This information alone is worth reading through the book!
There are some levels to learning Reiki, and these are explained throughout the middle and latter part of Practical Reiki. All of the levels are described well and teach self healing, hands-on Reiki for others, and even Reiki on animals, plants, and objects. I was very interested in this subject, so I'm pleased that author Alice Langholt provided so much useful information. I learned about Attunement, a term I was not familiar with, and I also learned about intention and how that works. My favorite part was learning how to heal others through Reiki, and even that this can be done from a distance, and for strangers who might need help in a crisis situation. The book also touches on ethics in Reiki, which was important to learn, and includes reference sheets and guides at the end to aid in your Reiki practices. All in all, if you're interested in this topic, I would recommend this book!

Alice’s writing style is down-to-earth and easy to understand for new students or those already Reiki trained. The material is presented with insight and humor, answering most questions you would think of as you go along. As a Reiki practitioner initially trained in Usui and other schools or Reiki, I find Practical Reiki™ an unencumbered, powerful method with all the results you would want or expect. Practical Reiki™ is streamlined and pure, and the only type of Reiki I now practice. Let Alice introduce you to her easy to follow and highly effective Reiki system.
I'm using this book, along with Alice's Practical Reiki Companion Workbook, and taking her on-line class. I find that every aspect of Practical Reiki is easy to understand, and I can do it at my own pace which is very helpful for me. Whether you are new to Reiki or not, this book may shed some new light on your knowledge of the subject and how it can be used in today's busy world.
