Reiki Blog Hop: Master List – January 2018

Master List



Welcome, it’s the start of a brand-new year and things in the world of energy work are becoming more relevant these days. Reiki perhaps even more so as the healer’s world is constantly changing; new ways of working and new Reiki methods constantly being discovered.

This month sees The Facebook Reiki Blog Hop Group starting up again after a rest period; and I volunteered to come up with this month’s topic. If you haven’t blog hopped before, this is the absolute perfect time to start. You can find out all about Blog Hopping Here and you can sign up to the Group Here or through the link at the top of this paragraph.

I’ve changed the format of the Master List slightly to include some information about the time, date and subject for the topic. This is a safety measure that I have adopted so that if Facebook decided to get stroppy and the Sign-up post gets messed about, all the information is here on the Master List for that month.

BLOG TOPIC: Guided by Reiki?


There are times when I am teaching/facilitating the learning/birthing of Reiki practitioners either into Usui or Angelic Reiki and the topic of Guides comes up from time to time. Usually I let the student decide their own answer to this question, so for this first hop of 2018, I would like to pose this as a topic for discussion.

How do you approach/answer or discuss the topic of Reiki Guides, is it something that you’ve encountered, do you believe that as masters or as students that we are guided when it comes to Reiki?

If you have done a hop with me before, then you’re aware that I am a great believer in if you find yourself being called to discuss something that is on parallel with this topic, you are most welcome to explore it.

Master List – Saturday, 27 – January – 2018


This list, is pretty much our running order. Normally the names are randomised from the sign up list on the Group; but as there are only three folks for this one, the running order is exactly the same.

Reiki Blog Hop – March 2017 Master List.



Hello and a very warm welcome to the master list for the March 2017 Reiki Blog Hop;


It is perfect if this is your first or if this is nothing new to you, however let me run through what this is; the way I view a blog hop is simply a group of dedicated writers all coming together and writing from their understanding about the topic set by the wrangler for the month.


This brings me on nicely to what a wrangler is and does; put simply the wrangler is like crisis management, cat herder and go to body when everything starts to go awry, which if you have ever been apart of a hop, happens to some degree or another. Since I am the wrangler for this month, it falls to me to get the sticky-back plastic, glue gun and tranquilisers… or the bondage gear and a couple of nipple clams and a whip… And no I have no idea what Nipple Clams are, but they sound fun…


Ultimately though that’s what this is all about, having fun…


Okay so this is the master list, here it the launching point for the hop, the shuffled list details everyone who has chosen to take part. I work a lot through sensation, feeling and intuitive knowing, and that includes putting the list together.


Below all this text is the theme and the list, which are all links that take you on to the next blog and so on until you come back to the point where you started. If you get lost, then come back to this page.


Theme: The Importance of Being Earnest…

“Don’t Learn from Me, Learn from Reiki” that is a direct quote from a comment left on my entry from January’s Entry for the Hop. It is a statement that validated something that came into my awareness in connection to Reiki. I have a strong sense of awareness that Reiki is a conscious living energy that we enter into a consensual, symbiotic relationship with. This relationship has great gifts in that it perhaps places us on a path or journey that we are perhaps meant to go.


This months topic is about our relationship with Reiki, and also our relationships with clients, students and ourselves. Consider that for every fantastic experience there has been some not so fantastic, and for every amazing teacher there is one that hasn’t been, so reach into your heart/soul space and explore in your entry the relationship that you have with Reiki, where has it has taken you, if this feels too vast then try looking at some of the highest points and lowest points, as long as you feel safe to do so, last thing I would want is for a process to be triggered and you have no one there to support you.


Also if you are a master and have taught, keeping in awareness confidentiality, are you open with your entry into the hop sharing about the journey you have taken with the students and where that journey is now, do you still keep in touch or have you sent them on their way? How supportive did that feel to you and them once the connection between you came to its end and how did you honour the conclusion?


Naturally it is absolutely welcomed to just run with this in your own way and see where the journey leads you too.
