Do you think Universe, in her ultimate wisdom, would present humanity with the wonderful gift of Reiki and then dictate that everyone use it and practice it in the exact same way? For the author, the answer is no. Each of us is an individual and when transmitting Reiki, the Universal Life Force Energy must take into account our individual differences. Reiki is not a static energy but a fluid one. For the author Reiki is a personal healing system, based on his relationship with Universe and the gift she gave him. And her gift is not a generic one.
It is a personal one. That is the reason this book was written - to show the reader how to connect directly with the Reiki Energy and claim the personal gift the author believes you are entitled to.
