Reiki Spiritual Practice

If you think about it, when it boils down to the last drop
Reiki is first and foremost a spiritual practice whose daily
application leads to healing on various levels, first and foremost
on a spiritual level.

Reiki can be seen, and I believe IS, as a unifying spiritual practice
that can be an augmentation to any "religious belief" and as a matter
of fact can be a religious practice in and of itself.

A religious practice that centers squarely on the practicioner and his or
her's connection to the Divine Source of Life.

On the surface Reiki is merely seen as a healing form but the connection
and substance is much more than skin deep, pun intended.

Practicing Reiki has greatly enhanced my connection to MY center and to what I refer to as "God" or The Source of Life.

Reiki has helped me to maintain my emotional and spiritual composure through a difficult time of my life. Reiki has kept me smiling and kept me full of hope when everything else (or nearly everything) has gone awry.

Reiki is a wonderful spiritual gift given to Humanity at a critical time in our existence.

I hope Western thought does NOT control this gift, regulate it and crush it's blessing.

But, alas, I fear greed will fight us to the bitter end.

Word..... :-)

P.S. How does one regulate Spirituality?
How does a government regulate an individual's spiritual practice?

And should that individual pray for another, or touch another and transmit spiritual love through mere touch... that is touch NOT physical manipulation how does the government regulate that? Attempting to regulate Reiki is a like attempting to regulate a loving embrace or hug. However, can I compare the two?

Because Reiki is far less invasive than a simple hug. And if you are going to regulate Reiki which is completely non-invasive you may as regulate physical embrace called hugging 'cause far more damage could be caused to a person by hugging then than giving a Reiki touch EVER could.

Do you doubt me? Think about it ....logically.

HaYom Yom

Today's day....

Yesterday I said goodbye to 9...

9 whose numerical value is equivalent to
the Hebrew word "EMETH" which means


The year 2007 and the number 9 are the
same and it was a year of great truths for me
to realise.

I am thankful for that year and for the consciousness
with which I went threw it.

Because it is all about the journey not the destination.

Today I say greetings to 10....
The number for completion and wholeness.

A year in which I see both 2008 and 10 coming up....

A year in which to take the truths I have realised
and used them in my life for further self-realisation/actualisation
and continue upon this life's journey..

May I continue to learn humility, patience, faith, compassion
and understanding...may all of this accumulate in Chochmah/Wisdom.

HaYom Yom upon this journey.

10 - Ten - 10

The number ten is the start of a whole new order of numbers and the culmination of the numbers that come before it. This may seem to be merely a distinction given to ten under our decimal numbering system. However the numbering systems in use in the time that the Bible was written were also based upon the number ten. A look at the number values assigned to the Hebrew and Greek letters in the table shown in the introduction Hebrew and Greek numerics will show that the letters were given values from one to ten, then increasing in tens to 100 then increasing by 100's and so on. Furthermore numbering by tens is built in to our very anatomy, count up on your fingers and when they are all used, make a mark on a piece of paper and start from your first finger again. Soon you will have a number of marks, each representing 'two hands' worth. Thus in ancient times as in modern times ten is the start of a whole new order of numbers and the culmination of the numbers that come before it.

Thus wherever ten is found this completeness of order is also seen. Ten implies completeness of order, nothing lacking and nothing over. It signifies that the cycle is complete and that everything is in its proper order. Thus ten represents the perfection of divine order.

Ten is the first of the triangular numbers which has a center. A triangular number is one that can be arranged into a perfect equilateral triangle. Start with a single counter (coin, marble, or indeed anything, but round objects work best). Then add a row of two under it to form a triangle. Thus three is a triangular number, but has no center. Then add a row of three under that, thus six is a triangular number but also has no center. Add a row of four underneath and we have a triangle of ten, which has a center. The central counter of the "ten" triangle is the fifth. The progression of triangular numbers continues on to infinity. It turns out that every third triangular number has a central position. However ten is the only on in which the central position is occupied by the half of the total number. Thus among triangular numbers ten is marked as unique and special. Starting with the number one, ten is the fourth triangular number. Thus ten partakes to some extent of the symbolic meaning of the number four, the number of the world. It is our natural, physical bodies with ten fingers and toes that make it "natural" to use a counting system based upon tens.

Of the four "perfect numbers" (3,7,10,12) the symbolism of ten - ordinal perfection is the only perfection that natural humans can even approach. While man's perfection falls far short of Gods perfection in all things, we can strive and achieve some measure of success with ordinal perfection. We can form a perfect cube, a perfect triangle, and so on. And even if we fall short of perfection in the actuality of these things the conceptual, or mathematical perfection of such is attainable for us. We cannot aspire to divine perfection on our own. We cannot aspire to spiritual perfection on our own. We cannot attain governmental perfection without God. Thus ordinal perfection, as symbolized by the number ten stands out as linked with the natural, the carnal (of the flesh, as our ten fingers literally are) and the world, and yet still perfect.

Ten is also a tetrahedral number. If we start with one marble and then add a layer of three marbles under it we have a perfect tetrahedron of four marbles. If we then add another layer of six marbles under that we have a perfect tetrahedron of ten marbles. Such arrangements occur naturally in atomic structure of metals and other materials. In the physical sciences such an arrangement is called "close packed hexagonal" or cph for short. You may notice that each successive layer that is added is the next triangular number of marbles. Thus tetrahedral numbers are the sums of the triangular numbers. In the same way that ten is the fourth triangular number it is the third tetrahedral number. Thus ten is linked with the first of the "perfect numbers".

Rolling into Autumn

My absolute favorite time of the year.

No moon as lovely as the harvest moon.

The smell of dry red, yellow and burnt umber leaves
gives me that deep down earthy home feeling....

Not too cold but not too warm either....
that in'tween weather

Stand in the sun you are warm and toasty
but step into the shadow of the tree of life
and you wanna wrap your shawl that much more
snug around you....or your sweater..

Reiki energy is flowing
Reiki Circles bring Autumn love
straight from the Universe.

No worries....
