Reiki and Life Poetry by others and myself (work in progress)
Reiki Treatment Poem
My first Reiki treatment and what was I to expect,
I hadn’t been feeling that great, low and flat,
So I was greeted with kindness and put at ease,
As I lay down on the treatment table and closed my eyes to his "please".
I remember now the smell of incense in the air and candle light aglow,
But it wasn’t long before I started to relax and let go,
I felt the healing hands gently touch my shoulder,
Listening to the soft music I remember feeling so much older.
So as the time went by I sensed a lot of changes,
I wasn’t sure what to expect as I'd been so tense for ages,
The heat, the images, the floating sensation
I know that time was moving but I had no clue or impression.
To my dismay I was told quietly that the session was over,
I felt light, slightly mellow, maybe unbelieving and also even a little younger,
How did I feel and why was I different and could I have that peace again,
I drank some water and sat there for a while taking it all in.
Could I come again I asked with a smile,
A quizzical look came back to me with the words why don’t you wait and see how you feel in while,
So I said goodbye and thanks very much,
I sat in my car for a while because I just felt so good and I pondered why everyone didn’t do this as I know that they should.
The Masters Journey:
I wander through life, my path it seems to unfold
My spiritual connection, my doors open and close
My guides they are with me, it took so long to be
But now they are with me, my life will surely be
A pathway of light is before me, which direction will I take
A road, a mountain, a highway, it's my journey within
Let me take you with me and together we will grow
The enlightenment of our evolution, a journey back home

The Blessed Reiki Path
I was passed the Reiki torch
One day as on a grassy knoll I lay
And there upon the hill my spirit glowed
As all around me angels came to stay
"Arise and place your foot upon the path
Awaken to our song upon the wind
With our guidance, bear this Reiki Light
And find the hidden gifts that lie within."
A flooding faith consumed my heart
As to my faltering feet the path arose
And as I walked the music wove itself
Into a symphony of blithe repose
The path wound sweet and soft beneath my step
As from the rising mountain jewels flashed
And while I climbed the slope toward the stars
The angels bade me blessings as I passed
Upon the sparkling peak I stopped to rest
The rolling velvet vistas bright and clear
A joyful poem came bursting from my breast
And I proclaimed it loud for all to hear
You travellers who rest upon the knolls
I bring you Reiki tidings from the Source
You need but lift your eyes and raise your hands
And I will come to you and pass the torch
The Reiki Way
So hear I stand at the start of the Reiki Way
A path unfolds and I know not why I stay
My heart is pounding and I know that I should rejoice
I know not why it does and it seems to take my heart and voice.
As time goes by the path becomes clearer
Reiki I is an awakening of my own life, fears, mistakes and a peeling back of the layers which I thought that I had dealt with
So as the onion I unwrap and slowly but surely I come back.
Still the journey unfolds even more so as Reiki II energies rise and intensify
Before it was all about practice and understanding the theory and slowly but surely I demystify
The symbols are entrusted and kept sacred as they pass from Master to pupil so easily and natural
How can I pick this up so quickly and when and why do I use it; all questions and loads of answers come flooding in as my soul begins to begin.
Still the journey unfolds and then comes Reiki III and the responsibility of the ages
I thought that I had cracked all of my issues and frailties
How wrong I was and how right was it to be
My journey isn't ended it's just meant to be.
And so my friends where do I go now?
The paths are endless and my trust will show a dedication of a lifetime, a purpose and a goal which is to impart knowledge and show people the way home.
Love and light, x

I Will Serve All
O bestower of unceasing bliss!
I will seek to make others truly happy, in gratitude for the divine joy thou has given me.
Through my spiritual happiness I will serve all.
Today I forgive all those who have ever offended me.
I give my love to all thirsty hearts,
both tho those who love me and to those who do not love me.
I will be a fisher of souls.
I will catch the ignorance of others in a net of my wisdom and offer it for transmutation to the God of all Gods.
I will radiate love and goodwill to others,
That I may open a channel for God's love to come to all.
I know I am one with the light of thy goodness.
May I be a lighthouse for those who are tossed on the sea of sorrow.
I am thy servant ready to serve all needy minds with my simple advice,
With my gifts of healing truth and with my humble wisdom gathered in the shrine of silence.
My highest ambition is to establish a temple of soul silence in every person I meet.
Reiki is God's love in its purest form.
It is completely unconditional.
It demands nothing of the giver nor the receiver.
It propounds no creed or dogma.
It requires no specific belief in the supreme being or in Reiki itself.
Used in its traditional form, as developed by Dr Usui in the Usui System of Natural Healing,
Reiki heals the body and emotions,
Bringing them into balance and promoting Health, Happiness, Prosperity and Long Life.
Power of Spirit
The power of the spirit seeks to flood through instruments to bring its healing touch where it can find the opportunity, knowing that as instruments offer themselves for the fullest measure of co-operation, so there will come through them the force, that radiance, that will enable your world to realise what can be done when there is harmony.
The power of the spirit is the power of life. The reason why there is a life is because spirit is there. The power that fashioned the whole universe, majestic though it is and stupendously vast, is the same power which enables you to exist here and hereafter for all time. The power that enables you to love, to think, to care, to judge, to reflect, to decide, to weigh, to ponder, to be inspired, to reach the heights and depths of the whole gamut of human feelings, that power is the power of the spirit.
Strive to achieve your highest ideals - the secret dreams and prayers which are you great hopes and aspirations. Continue to be loyal to that light which you follow.
Do not in any measure betray the trust that is reposed in you by those who love you. Hold aloft that torch of truth and let its radiance bring light to many who are in darkness.
Continue so to order your own life that the power of spirit may flow through you in increasing measure and magnitude, so that you may be the means of bringing blessings to those who are sorely afflicted and who know not where to turn.
And rejoice that the Great Spirit has raised you up. Continue to serve and know that as you serve so you will be served and love, divine and human, for it is the same thing, will continue to guide you and enable you to fulfil the purpose of your own earthly being.
