His dedication to healing and preserving the Usui system of Reiki make him a valuable resource to the Reiki community. In part II of this interview, Doi Sensei answers questions about the second degree symbols, the role Dr. Hayashi played in the development of Western Reiki, and many interesting details about the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai.

by Diane Shewmaker
This is a new column about the many transformative shifts and changes that the experience of learning Reiki has brought into the lives of individuals. Many people have experienced radical changes in their character, employment, marriage, friends, health and more because of Reiki. Each issue will tell the story of one or more people for whom Reiki has been a life-changing experience. This first article is about Diane's own personal transformation in which she states, "To say that Reiki has transformed my life is more or less an understatement because, quite literally, every area of my life has undergone tremendous change. In fact, looking back, I can almost define my life into two distinct periods: pre-Reiki and post-Reiki."
Reiki and the Body of Light, Part I
by Walter Lübeck
According to Walter, enlightenment and lasting personal spiritual realization can only be attained if the Body of Light is working well and in a stable state. In this article Walter describes the Body of Light including the aura chakras, the holy mountains and other aspects and how working directly with them will help us to develop our spiritual nature more quickly. This is a very informative article and gives us insight into an area not many have written about.
Reiki and Bach Flower Remedies
by Mari Hall
Dr. Bach based his work on a profound philosophy in which life is seen as a learning process and ill health-whether mental or physical-is intended to help us understand more about ourselves and the purpose of our lives. From this understanding Dr. Bach created his famous flower remedies which work to heal the emotional nature. In this article, Mari describes the wonderful healing benefits that can be derived from combining Bach Flower remedies with Reiki.
The Whale Rider
Movie Mystic Review
by Stephen Simon
The films discussed are not "reviewed" in this column in the traditional sense of that word; rather, we look at metaphysical messages in films, both current and classic. A chakra rating is also given to indicate the level of clarity the film portrays for each of the 7 levels of consciousness. Stephen Simon has produced such films as Somewhere in Time and What Dreams May Come.
Pai, the thirteen-year old heroine of WHALE RIDER, guides us through her own experience of that moment of transformation. She hears the call of ancient whales that draw her and us into a film that is haunting, prophetic, and groundbreaking. This is an insightful review of this paradoxical movie. Chakra ratings are included.
These stories, sent in by our readers give real life validation to the practice of Reiki. Many include people who had serious illnesses and before and after medical tests that confirmed both the existence of the condition and the healing. They demonstrate the miracle working power of Reiki and inspire us to develop our skill and use our Reiki.
This is an exciting and valuable issue that will supply you with entertainment as well as quality information and instruction. If you have any suggestions on how the magazine could be improved, I'd be very happy to hear them.
The world is a wonderful place, filled with continual changes which bring with them a never ending supply of opportunities. May you grow in the ability to allow the wisdom of Reiki to guide how you create your life.
Love and peace to you and the world.
