The Reiki Handbook is the original book about Reiki and is a practical student’s workbook along with being a reference
book that is essential for all Reiki practitioners. It is a well recognized teaching aide of the Usui Shiko Ryoho
system of healing for the Reiki Masters.
This book is full of detailed information about Reiki. It also is a well recognized guide offering a whole section focusing on Reiki healing therapy for animals.
We personally like this book a lot for beginning Reiki practitioners because of the very clear and precise
pictures indicating hand placement and the condition specific instructions for utilizing Reiki in different
cases of physical problems.
Excellent resource for anyone just beginning or anyone who hasn’t practiced Reiki regularly for a while, as
well as just an excellent general reference book to have around.
Handbook – For Students and Therapists of the Usui Shiki Ryhoho System of Healing
Experience Life Force Energy Through Reiki
Through Reiki is a forty-two day program that is designed to support you in creating absolute fulfillment. This book will reach into the core issues regarding abundance that rule your life. It is said to be a timeless jewel, offering valuable insights
that you will receive in a detailed form presented as two twenty-one day abundance plans that are well crafted and finely tuned. You explore the various belief patterns you hold and discover what ones keep you from experiencing and attaining what you desire.
We are including this book because of an almost universal situation where healers are living in poverty consciousness
due to limiting beliefs. We feel we are to shift our own poverty consciousness into abundance consciousness,
not just for ourselves but as part of our work for healing the planet on all levels.
A Complete Guide to an Ancient Healing Art (by Diane Stein).
This book is controversial because the author published the actual drawings of the Reiki Symbols which are supposed
to be secret and given only to those who actually get an attunement. In the Reiki Community it is felt that unless
an individual has had a Reiki attunement they cannot perform Reiki on another person. This has been questioned by
some, and for this the author is considered sort of a black sheep in the Reiki Community.
