Hi my name is Leonard and I live in Sydney Australia; my Website is www.thehouseofcalm.com. I work in the realm of energy Therapy and have an understanding as to what the System of Reiki really is so just listen to what I have to say and try some of the exercises that I have developed over many years. I have been open to the system for 20years but had never found anybody who could really explain as to what it really is. The explications that abound about what is the system sound similar to the story about "The Emperor's New Clothes" is a short tale by Hans Christian Andersen about two weavers who promise an emperor a new suit of clothes that they say is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. In hind-site when you search the web for explanation about the system of Reiki to me sounds similar. In my opinion and this is what I find; The system of Reiki has cloths and is full of Energy/Frequency and Vibration. Draw a symbol and just hold it, you may be aware of a feeling within self; do the same with any of the recognised symbols, not to be just satisfied with that do the same with your first born name.
So that was the start with my research and where I am today; so is where I am to-day and still working at it.
