Terror and Love
by William Lee Rand
The act of terror that riveted our
attention, shaking the foundations of our souls and awakening
us from our unconscious patterns has had the opposite effect from
what was intended. It has focused all the spiritual people of
the world to act as one. Because such a great number of people
have joined together to channel our highest good, like a magnet,
this great uplifting of hearts is attracting a quality of Reiki
energy and light to the planet that has never been present before.
Many new streams of light are flowing to us now, making everyone's
Reiki stronger, clearer, brighter and the likelihood of miracles
taking place beneath our hands is greater than ever before. As
we merge together with the intent of sending Reiki to all those
affected by this terrible event, our hearts open more than ever
and a deep healing takes place within us allowing a flow of compassion
to come pouring forth. Letting go completely, we drift on a sea
of love that goes out to heal all the hurts of the world.

Evidence of Ancient Reiki
These 6000 year old clay figures
from the Neolithic Hamangia culture were found in a cemetery
in Romaina just south of the Danube delta. They appear to
be treating themselves with Reiki. The
one on the left is known as the Thinker and has his hands
on his face while the one on the right appears to be treating
bowl with the familiar Reiki pattern is part of a collection
of artwork currently being produced in the Horezu region of
Southern Romania. The pattern has been in use for hundreds
of years and is part of the local heritage, yet no one has
information about it's meaning.
Thanks goes to Calin Cotrau, Reiki Master from Romania for
providing the pictures and information.
Mrs. Takata's Hilo Clinic
by William Lee Rand
Last July I went to Hawaii on vacation and while
on the Big Island, revisited Mrs. Takata's Hilo clinic. It is
located at 2070 Kilauea Ave. in Hilo and is now occupied by the
Kline Chiropractic Clinic. Dr. Kline is also an Aikido instructor
and includes healing in his practice.
In 1995 Duff Cady, one of our Licensed
Teachers researched the location of the clinic. He found one
of Mrs. Takata's Reiki ads in a local newspaper, the Tribune Herald
dated March 3, 1941. This was before the attack on Pearl Harbor.
As you can see it lists her address in Hilo. Duff discovered Mrs.
Takata's Reiki sign in the basement of the building, still there
after all those years! Note that above and behind the words on
the upper left of the sign, you can see the word "Reiki".
For some reason, Mrs. Takata must have changed her mind about
advertising Reiki and painted the new words over it. The picture
on the right is Mrs. Takata taken about the time she purchase
the clinic. The picture on the left was taken on my first visit
in 1996. The light behind my right shoulder appears to be two
spiritual beings. There was no light behind me nor anything to
reflect light so it's presence in the picture is a mystery. To
read more about the discovery of her clinic please go to: http://www.reiki.org/reikinews/reikin23.html
This is an effective Reiki technique for treating
anyone who has experienced a stroke. It is also effective for
all motor/neurological issues including dyslexia, Parkinson's,
MS and more. This technique helps heal and balance energy patterns
on all levels.
With the client on their back have them cross the
right ankle over the left. Also, have them cross their arms so
that the left wrist is crossing the right wrist, the hands are
resting on the chest. Treat both sides of the head with Reiki
for about 20 minutes and then have them switch - left ankle over
right , right wrist over left and treat through the head again.
If more than one person is giving Reiki then the other person
can place their hands on the places that are crossed and give
Reiki. The results are amazing. I have also used this with pulmonary
edema when a person could hardly breathe because of the fluids.
In 20 minutes the swelling was visibly diminished. (Editors Note:
When giving a self treatment, you can also extend the hands up
to hold each of the opposite shoulders.) Thanks goes to Mari Hall
for this wonderful treatment method.
Reiki In India
Reiki is very popular in India. When I traveled and taught
Reiki there last year and again early this year, I was impressed
by the dedication and reverence people have for Reiki. While
there, I worked with the most dedicated to start a branch of
the Center in Noida, which is just outside Delhi. They teach
classes, provide books and teaching supplies and refer teachers
and practitioners all over India.

I very much enjoyed the online Reiki newsletter. It was visually
appealing and easy to read. I felt a direct connection with
you and it felt good! I continue to use Reiki every day for
myself and others. I can't imagine not having Reiki to use.
Even people who are not "into that kind of thing" can try it
for something, like a meeting or a test at school and see for
themselves how Reiki can smooth the way. Thank you for doing
this work and continuing to expand your ways of going out into
the world. We live in interesting times of great opportunity.

Dear Newsletter Staff,
I would just like to say a big thank you to William Lee Rand
and all his staff for what you have done to make Reiki more
widely known. It fills my heart with tears of joy to receive
these newsletters and I can almost hear William's sweet American
When I read the intro, I was thinking the other day how, in
your sharing of Reiki you have brought it to new heights of
recognition around the globe, and have encouraged other Reiki
masters to do their work which in turn has lead them to do the
same to people such as myself and so it goes on spreading love
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
All my love,

What readers say about "The Look of Love"
In the August edition of the Online Reiki Newsletter,
we featured an article about Gyoshi
Ho, a technique for sending Reiki with your eyes, taught by
Dr. Usui. We received many successful reports about it's use including
the ones below. To see them all, click
Dear Master Rand:
Thank you very much for the August newsletter I have practiced
the new technique Gyoshi-Ho, and it is absolutely fantastic. I
just love it. Because English is my second language I'm not too
good in writing but thank again and the wisdom and guidance of
God will be with you everyday of your life.
Rev. Josie Maria Blair Miami- FLorida
Dear Mr. Rand,
I am a Reiki Master from Vermont. I just tried the Gyoshi Ho method
on my husband's sore back. He said he felt energy going up in
his brain and then down in his leg - the energy was going up and
down his body. He said it was easier to get up out of the chair
and it loosened up his back; "It does feel a lot better." Are
the eyes a chakra? Jesus healed with his eyes, thoughts, hands,
etc. I could feel my eyes in a way I haven't felt before. Perhaps
it was concentration yet, I felt the energy, too. It was really
"neat" and I enjoyed learning something "new!"
Thank you. Blessings, Michele

Reiki distant healing for surgery
I just wanted to thank everyone who channeled some
Reiki healing to me for my surgery. I was so nervous and so worried
because I have had multiple surgeries and have had many complications
after my surgeries that for this surgery, I was so scared. I put
in a healing
request on this website and it is hard to explain. The Wednesday
before my scheduled surgery on Thursday, July 26 to have a right
ulnar nerve transposition, I was really fritzed out and could
do nothing. I already am limited because of my injuries and my
surgeries, but I was so freaked out. Then all of a sudden, I felt
this calming presence all over me and I knew that my surgery was
going to be okay. I had put in the healing request on that Monday
and it said that it would take a couple of days to start. The
actual surgery was very successful and I had no complications
and I came out of the surgery fairly easily. I am now starting
the long road for therapy and will still need Reiki healing to
help me complete and have a successful therapy. Thank you! I can't
explain everything because I have never had an experience or did
I really believe, but after having so many surgeries and so many
complications, I knew that I would have to embrace other sources
and other healing possibilities.
With love to all!
Attunement heals color blindness
I was attuned about 3 weeks ago now and I use to
be shade blind. I could see colors to an extent, but after the
attunement I am able to see all colors and the brightness to them.
It was a life changing experience. I am now going to go through
with learning more and becoming a practitioner.
Reiki charges battery
I was recently in need of accessing a couple of
telephone numbers from my mobile phone but unfortunately its battery
was completely dead and my recharger broken. So being aware of
the Reiki energy's ability to adapt itself to what is needed I
set about using Reiki to recharge this battery by holding it in
my hands and after just a couple of minutes I managed to channel
enough energy into the battery to allow access to my address book
to be gained!
Editors Note: This is a commonly reported experience.
