a free force

One of the most encouraging aspects of my new lifestyle was that I began to believe that anything is possible!

It became obvious to me that some kind of hidden force, or energy is at work everywhere, all the time. And although unseen, it is so powerful that it affects physical matter. Look at those flocks of birds and shoals of fish, who move and turn together at the exact same moment. They clearly demonstrate this unseen energy.

The Chinese have been aware of it for thousands of years – they call it “chi” and believe it to be the natural energy of the Universe, which permeates everything. From healing their bodies to arranging their homes, offices, parks and playgrounds they constantly strive to recognise the chi and balance it perfectly.

I enrolled on a course to learn Reiki, a technique from Japan that realigns and balances the energy field around a human body. We practiced on each other and I was surprised and pleased when other pupils reported positive results when I worked on them.

Learning Reiki gave me a surge of personal empowerment and responsibility, which has benefited me ever since. I know that I alone am responsible for the way I feel and that it will affect my body.  I know there is definitely an unseen, very powerful positive energy that we can connect with whenever we want, and that it is absolutely FREE!
