This book looks very pretty on the outside, it has a sky blue back ground and the title of the book is in yellow, the colours really do complement each other. The title of the book is called Simply Reiki written by Lynne and David Evans.

It is about the Usui system of Natural Healing. There are 11 Chapter's in this book; the first take's you through how Lynne and David Evans discovered Reiki. It tells the story of how Lynne was an active person who used to take part in competing in Triathlon's and then feel ill with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ( M.E)

She suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and they discovered Reiki in which she was able to heal herself with the help of David and friend's. She no longer suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome.

The book explains what Reiki is and goes into detail about Reiki, explaining what it feel's like to receive Reiki and who can become a Reiki channel and how Reiki differs from other form's of spiritual healing etc.

It goes on to tell the story of how Dr Mikao Usui re-discovered Reiki and goes on to talk about his successor's in Reiki.
Dr Chujiro Hayashi and Hawayo Takata. They explain how to use Reiki, the basic treatment, precaution's, self treatment and goes on to explain Meditation and Auric healing.

There is a chapter on balancing the Chakras and when to know to do this, although it does explain you cannot learn how to balance the Chakras from this book. Lynne and David explain that you need to be shown by someone with experience, a Reiki master. They go on to explain what each Chakra is used for.

Lynne and David tell of the Reiki precept's....Just for today do not worry, do not anger, honour your parent's teacher's and elder's, earn your living honestly, and show gratitude to every living thing.
They go into detail with this explaining what each one mean's.

The last chapter of this book is about Lynne and David's students and people that were just attuned to Reiki, who experienced miracles. I loved reading this chapter and how these people were able to heal others and the satisfaction they experienced with being able to help people.

Over all I love this book, I have read it and am reading it again. It's one of those book's you just can't put down, you have to read over and over again, it make's you feel closer to Reiki.

It explained Reiki very well and helped me to understand it so much more. For anyone just starting to learn about Reiki and for anyone who is interested about finding out about Reiki. I would highly recommend this book.

Lynne and David found my review on another site a few years ago, and they emailed me to say thank you. I was over the moon when they did.

I really want to do my Reiki Level One and Two this year or next. I tend not to like books that are filled with case studies of how great the teachers are though. Not sure this is quite right for me, but it's very cool that they emailed you after reading your review.
