Welcome to 'Reiki by Glenn'
Thank you for visiting my website and taking the time to find out more.
From a very early age (it is funny that most people I know who teach etc. tend to start off like this and if you are reading this perhaps this applies to you as well?), I knew that I was sensitive to energy and spiritual things from a very early age but I had no one to go to! In particular I would see things which other people could not; in addition, I would feel the palm of my hands heat up for no reason what so ever (I believe now that this was latent Reiki and linked to the Chakra's (energy centres) in my palms. My only regret was that I could have not found Reiki sooner; then again, I do not believe that I was ready for it (I will explain that to you one day).
It took me a long time to realise that I had a purpose which wasn't what I doing in my day job. However, my logical mind stopped me from accepting the path which I was going down. Then around 21 years ago I met and married my wife Debra and she gave me the confidence to follow the path which I had not accepted for so long.
In December 2008, I was very fortunate to study under Jill Cooper (Reiki Master) the Reiki first degree of Usui Shiki Ryoho. Then in August 2009, I completed the Reiki second degree (Practitioner). Normally there is a gap of around two to three years before you undertake your Master Teaching level and the first degree. However, I had been allowed to do this early and I then completed my Masters (Reiki III) in May 2010. This was a great honour for me and I hope that I am able to teach others Reiki in the many years to come. In the meantime, let me share some comments from some of my clients which they agreed I could share with you.
Reiki Client Comments:
"I am so glad I found you Glenn - you are an earth angel and the Reki session you gave me on Saturday was beyond amazing, clealry you are very good at what you do and have a gift of connecting and healing. I love your website, its very congruent just like you." Lorraine (England) (Reiki sessions June 2011)
"Since meeting you and having Reiki I find my life has fallen into place. When I first met you I was a confused unhappy person who could not come to terms with what I had found out about my mother's big secret. You helped me deal with this and taught me to forgive her.I am at peace and from you have learnt to be calm and have a positive outlook on life.I cannot thank you enough for leading me into the light. If I need you I know you will be there.
To also give you comfort in me I have also been associated with the UK Reiki Federation since 2009 and you will be able to find a link to the Reiki Federation on the Links page.
Now at the tender age of 50 I have been very lucky to study Mediumship and Reiki for many years; I still classify myself though as a developing medium and student of Reiki. Please let me be clear that this is solely the way that I work and, not how other Reiki practitioners/teachers work.
One of the questions that people continually ask me is what things do you think that Reiki would help? My answer is that it can help mostly all things and is not just conditional to human beings as well.
Finally, I just wanted to touch on my developing mediumship; until recently I was part of a mediumship/psychic development circle for the last four years which was run by a very good medium and now friend Sarah Johnson (07770 332693). This allowed me to develop my bond between this world and the next.
Mediumship Client Comment:
"It has been a pleasure to meet you. I was very impressed with the conversation we had. You have helped me a great deal and given me hope and strength to continue. Above all, you have given me the proof I have seeked, for a very long time, and this has been very comforting for me.
My hope is that I can use the connection that I have with the higher realms to give messages of love and light where appropriate and desired. My aim also to relay the Universal Life Force energy which is around us all to really help and heal.
You can now follow me on Twitter; look for ReikibyGlenn.
Thought for today:
"If you think it's going to be bad today then invariably it will be, if you think it's going to be good or even better today guess what happens!"
Tip for now:
"Start every day as if it's your last and take the time to tell people today how much you love them......"
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.
Silver Birch - The Seed of Truth
I was born in July 1967 in South Wales. I married my wife Debra in 2000 and she is my best friend and soul mate. We have had 20 great years together and in 2010 we renewed our vows. We have three children.
At the tender age of 50, we have moved quite a lot over the last 14 years, mostly with my work and we even had 11 months in New Zealand which was pretty amazing. We now live in Littleover, Derby and I hope to be here a little longer this time as we really like the area.
I have been lucky as well to serve with the Royal Military Police Territorial Army for a short while, which taught me a lot about myself and about people in general. I enjoy listening to music of all sorts and of course Reiki, Mediumship and generally trying to spend as much time with my family as I can. Reiki for me is a way of life, although I accept that there are days when I find it very difficult to hold to the five principles. That said, I do try every single day.
My ultimate goal in life would be to stop my work in HR and to set up a Wellbeing Retreat where people could just come and stay, stop, meditate and once again connect with themselves. All to often people are told to connect with their Spirit Guides, Healing Angels etc, without really connecting with their own soul first. Thanks very much for coming onto my site and I wish you all love and light in your own journeys,
