Energy and excitement are building as we get set to launch CarpReikiCommunity
-with an introduction at CREWC (Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre) Open House on Saturday, September 19, 2015
-and at Carp Healing Circle on Sunday, October 18, 2015

After a lifetime of awareness of Energies unseen by others, I found myself at the Carp Reiki Healing Centre in 1990s, where I trained in Reiki Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 / Master Level.

Reiki has image
-enriched my life,
-given me an understanding of the gift and the richness of Reiki,
-opened my heart and mind to the fullness around and within me
-been passed through me to others in teaching and attunement
-helped me to heal myself
-and helped others to heal themselves using Reiki.

The CarpReikiCommunity offers:
-Introduction to Reiki
-Reiki training
-Community forum for discussions, explorations, learning.

Reiki is a gift of Energy that belongs to the world.
Come share with our welcoming CarpReikiCommunity.


Gathering … and a Community is Born

Writing Group is a great place to launch a piece of writing, a new idea, something different from everyone else’s work. They welcome, they listen, they support, they inspire and help me find clarity. They are the wind beneath my wings of storytelling, of allowing my visions to depart my head and land on my page.

While pursuing a dream, seeking to come full circle, I wrote about Reiki and Energies in a story for Writing Group, called “Route – a Third Third Perspective” posted on ( In this piece, I wrote about Reiki from a personal point of view: Energy experiences as a child; backburnering abilities (indeed killing some off to the point where I would have to Reiki the skill for some time before daring to dream that the ability would ever come back), all in the name of social acceptance and expectation.

First one then another and another until five from the Writing Group came to me and expressed an interest in learning more about Reiki. These are the most supportive and expressive people on the planet and in my circle. My Reiki senses were tingling.

Letting an idea sit for a period of time is a method that has worked well for me, at home,
at work teaching 13 year olds, in difficult social interactions, and that is exactly what I did. The next week, at our after-Group coffee get together, someone brought up her interest again … Others overheard and joined in expressing their interest.

I had been working on a blog / website for the CarpReikiCommunity, grabbing an email address with the same name, wording up possible setup for the blog, planning a Launch, managing an invitation to speak to Introduce Reiki at a local event; many details were swirling, and only a few alighted to meld into a possible script.
And I began to wonder how I would find the words to help my Writing Group friends understand Reiki from their first baby steps into this realm.

First was a go-round of emails and Reply-Alls about day preference, time preference, directions to the presentation location. Coordinating six schedules for six busy committed-elsewhere people is always fascinating and a way to get to know something about each individual. Home renovations, helping family member or friend, volunteering, work, rescuing animals, appointments … all of these demonstrated the Energies of the individuals. And our Energies began to blend even before we had found the single day so the group could be together on this journey. Though at one point I was certain that we would need to split into two groups, we succeeded in determining a single day and time. Adding to the auspicious regard for the occasion was the fact that it was the day after Lughnasadh, and the day of the Full Moon (Grain Moon). That’s some awe-inspiring Energy.

We came together on the appointed date and time, made social chitchat, found a place to sit. Everyone was smiling, interacting, settling in. When I began to speak, the Energy of the collective focused immediately, wending its way in and out and through the Energies of each other, bonding together.
We passed an evening of enlightenment and Energy and joining together and sharing.

And it was in the spaces between all these decisions and Energies that I tingled with the realisation that my Reiki Introduction was born. And the CarpReikiCommunity was born. And was born.

The birth of a collective, a community, any birth really, is a thing of beauty. And a first birth holds its own special presence.
Behold, a Community is Born. Welcome to CarpReikiCommunity.

Namaste.                                                                                                                       Happy Trails.                                                                                                                           s

World Peace Card Meditations
Wednesday, August 19, 7:30pm
(based on local time in your time zone)

Future Dates
Wednesday – September 16, October 21,
November 18, December 16 at 7:30pm

You are invited to take part in the next World Peace Card Meditations. Please mark your calendar and forward this email to all your friends.

Thanks for Your Help!

Because so many of you forwarded this email to your friends, there have been almost 342,000 downloads of the World Peace Cards. This is a tremendous increase in the number of people using the cards. So far the total number of World Peace Card sets downloaded, received from our free offer and from our magazine has been nearly 397,000! I hope you have been using your peace cards as their use brings blessings to the world as well as to you.

The next World Peace Card group meditations have been scheduled for Wednesday, August 19 at 7:30pm. This is local time in your time zone. This method has been chosen because of the special effect it produces. As people meditate in each successive time zone the energy builds like a wave which gets stronger and stronger as it circles the planet. Because of the higher dimensional nature of consciousness, the energy of peace will be transmitted for a full 24 hours and continue long after this.

Reports from those who took part in the previous meditations indicate many had powerful spiritual experiences. As they united with those taking part in the meditation a feeling of peace developed within that stayed with each for a long time. Some saw beautiful golden light surrounding the planet and others felt that a web of fear was dissipating and being replaced with trust in others and for our future.

All those who have received the cards are being asked to meditate on world peace at this time. By taking part in this group meditation, you’ll be joining thousands of people who will be using the cards to bring peace to the world. By joining together, the affect we have will be greatly multiplied. This powerful experience and will help shift the vibration of our wonderful planet into a higher state of consciousness. As you use the cards to meditate on world peace, you will be a beacon through which peace will spread around the planet which will have a positive uplifting effect on all people.

Please set aside this time to meditate with the cards. The suggested meditation period is 15 minutes, but of course you can meditate longer if you’d like to. The technique I’d like you to use is based on allowing yourself to be a beacon of peace. The World Peace Cards hold the vibration of the World Peace Grids which have been placed at spiritually significant locations and are relay stations for higher consciousness. By simply opening to their energy, you’ll become a channel for their love and peace which will flow through you to all the people on Earth. To do this, hold the cards in your hands or place them in front of you. Then simply meditate on peace.

We are entering a new era. Our entire planet including all the people and living things are moving into a place where it will be much easier to solve our problems and to create peace, prosperity and happiness for everyone. The World Peace Card meditation will quicken this process, making it easier for people to experience this new quality of higher consciousness and will provide great benefit for all people. Since this benefit will be flowing through you out to everyone on the planet, you’ll be blessed by this experience as well.

Many have received the cards in the mail or in the Reiki News Magazine while others have downloaded them from our web site. If you would like additional copies of the cards, please download them using this link and print as many copies as you can use. Please feel free to give them to your friends. Also, forward this email to anyone you feel would like to take part in the meditation.

World Peace Card Download
Additional World Peace Cards –

Note: This is a larger file and it may take several
minutes for it to open, so please be patient.

When printing the cards from this file, print page 2 first, then place this page in your printer and print the image of the peace grids on the back.

New Reiki Grid – Send Reiki to Others

We also have a new image of the World Peace Crystal Grid that can be used for a Reiki Grid. By using it for your Reiki Grid you’ll be tapping into the energy of all the peace grids and this will add to the energy that is sent to all those whose names or photos you place in the grid making the Reiki more effective and adding wonderful feelings of peace and harmony. And each time you charge your grid, you’ll be charging the peace grids for world peace! With this system you’ll use 12 crystals around the outside – placing 1 crystal over each of the crystals in the photo plus 1 crystal in the center and 1 as your master crystal for a total of 14 crystals. The additional crystals will also hold and transmit more energy. Also, remember you can place your goals into the grid as well. I suggest printing it on glossy photo paper if you have it or you could get some at your office supply store. You’ll need to trim the one side of the grid aft er it’s printed.
