Reiki Healing: A basic Idea

reiki healing consciousness mind research

This article appears on our lovely Reiki Writers site and she kindly gave us permission to post it on our site with a link back to her site. We have slightly edited this piece with full permission.

You are here for reason, hearing about Reiki, and are curious. That is exactly how I found Reiki, over 20 years ago. Simply put Reiki is an energy healing technique that helps to promote relaxation while reducing stress. Reiki was rediscovered in Japan in the early 20th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, however, it is now popular in Western society as the first step into the use of universal energy. Reiki is a non-invasive, hands-on, and off, incredibly powerful technique of healing.

What is Universal Life Force Energy?

Reiki is derived from Japanese and means “Universal Life Force Energy” and it is accessed by the Master/Practitioner during an Attunement or a treatment. It intensifies the body’s natural healing ability and promotes wellness and calm. This Universal Life Force Energy is all around us, it fills us and everything that exists is energy. So just imagine what tapping into this energy can do for you.

Reiki Master/Practitioners tap into the Reiki energy, which flows into them through the crown Chakra (more on Chakras in a later article) and out through the Chakras in their hands, into the individual they are working with.

We have no specific goals in a reiki treatment, no outcomes are determined, we just let Reiki do what it needs to go where it goes. In this way, you could say Reiki or Universal Energy is intelligent.

Reiki is spiritual in nature but scientific in principle.

Medical and scientific disciplines are beginning to recognize that the human body is made up of energy and that blockages in this energy (Chakra points) allow in discomfort and/or dis-ease.  Chinese medicine has known this for millennia. By clearing the blocked or stagnant energy (Ki in Japanese, Chi in Chinese) stress relief and relaxation ensue. This begins to promote an environment that fosters healing and wellness.

A Reiki treatment/healing session lasts between 45 and 90 minutes. This is dependent on your needs at the time. You are usually placed on a massage table or in a straight-back chair if you are unable to use the table. Master/Practitioners place their hands on you, while others keep their hands (in the energy layer that surrounds your body or Aura) near but not touching your body. You will always remain fully clothed.

Experiencing Reiki Differently

Everyone will experience Reiki differently, some may feel a deep sense of relaxation, along with a loss of tension, fear, and anxiety. Some may even fall asleep, while others report floating outside their bodies or having visions or related experiences. Tears are often the most reported experiences; letting go of past hurts is a fantastic way to clear deep blockages.

People also generally feel very refreshed or renewed when their treatment/session is over, they are balanced and positive. Reiki can positively influence all types of negative conditions and illnesses, from small problems like headaches to larger whole-body encompassing concerns, reducing anxiety and assisting with the side effects of treatments.

Stress Reduction

While Reiki cannot guarantee miracles or any specific level of healing, it is always beneficial and may reduce depression, pain, and stress. Many have experienced complete healing from Reiki. There are anecdotal stories purporting this, while others have seen smaller but significant improvements in their condition and overall health. Anyone can be treated with Reiki, and enjoy the benefits from it. Pets, homes, anything you can think of really.

Our New Report on Lotto & Slots

Lotto Slots Balls

My new Super Lotto-Slots program is now complete and the initial testing has been done.  It is in effect a double program so you will receive two of the very latest concepts in one email package.

These two programs are the final result of many years of research into lotto and slots.

Not only that, but due to the time of year, I have decided to create a coupon code to provide a fifty percent reduction in price for everything on the Mind Research Group Website for a period of a few months.

The Code is covid19

Everything will display at the normal price and in the Total column, the price will drop by 50% when you use the coupon code above.

This is to make my reports as affordable to people right now, in these uncertain times.

In fact, I’m personally so confident about making money out of these that as from this Friday I am going to take a 3 month holiday and just hang around Perth visiting the local casino and playing Oz lotto online. Over the past 5 weeks, I am $4,100 ahead in slots and have had 11 small lotto wins. Both processes are clearly showing a profit.

I will be checking emails and Facebook each day for orders but won’t be writing anything new. Basically, all I’ll be doing in the way of “work” is processing the incoming orders and emailing the program out.

If this process works as well as I think it will then I will totally retire and use the two systems to make a retirement living. Sort of a gambling “superannuation!”

Do you dream about winning a major lotto or slots jackpot? Do thoughts about this regularly infiltrate your consciousness? Are you fully aware that your subconscious mind totally controls your inherent luck?  Do you fantasize about what you would do with such a windfall?

The amazing thing is that those individuals who seriously contemplate such a prize often capture such a windfall.  This has been documented many times.

It happened because they fed their desires into the universal mind with serious dedication, intent, and emotion. Many of these winners have stated that they daydreamed regularly about a win.

Daydreaming can be a highly emotive experience and can manifest itself as being very lifelike.

What my beta team here in Vanuatu has been researching for the past 2 months is a way to capture serious prizes on both lotto and slot machines.

It looks like we will end up with a dual product……. one leg of which is dedicated to the lotto while the other leg is dedicated to the slots. But both will be presented as one single sales package so you will receive two products in one package.

I intend to market this program worldwide once it is established at around AUD$290. I’m fairly certain there will be a lot of sales even at this price. In the meantime, I will offer this on a Beta-testing basis at $79.  So if you are hanging out for an early copy and are prepared to supply feedback so I can share it then you can have a copy for $79. At this point, the whole program takes up about 28 A4 size pages and is reasonably elaborate but dead easy to follow.  A number of the process described will be new to you and one might even raise your eyebrows a bit because it is so very different and original!

Much Awaited Reports

Mental preparation

It has been a good while- nearly 7 months or so since I received the license or franchise to sell the reports on the mental process from Jim Coyle.

Given that we are all affected by the lockdowns in various forms and degrees around the world regarding the COVID-19 virus, I decided that this is as good a time as ever to sit down and get this material out to you.

I have been planning and working furiously to get adjusted to the new normal of working from home.

I am on a recess from my normal full-time employment on annual leave and thus, am getting on with all the jobs in my online business that have needed my attention for so long. As awful as this viral pandemic we are seeing around the world is, I have decided to make the best and most of the situation and time I have to study my business interests online and to hopefully, be able to make a difference to all my readers who want this information and material.

I know it is a time when we all want to better ourselves and also to understand so much more in this rapidly changing world. When things change that are beyond our control, we really need to take the situation and work with it, rather than just throw our hands up and give up.

While I certainly was among the ‘struck dumb’ crowd when I went through our supermarkets, with empty shelves and noted how stunned everyone else looked, I know I had to steel up and take advantage of the situation as like all successful people, adapting and making the best of a tough situation is the way through to thrive and succeed above all else.

I know that we can be kinder to each other, more patient with each other and generally, together we can get through this.

I will honour my promise of uploading more reports on a daily basis to the site and will be offering all reports on special sale prices through these challenging times.

Stay Strong we will Prevail.

COVID-19 Our Response and Your Position


COVID-2019 is certainly a time of reflection and concern for us all. Regardless of your background, work position, life experience, we have all been affected and will continue to be affected for quite some time in the near future.

For some of us, this may mean we are working from home if we are fortunate to still be employed, and in jobs where we can actually work from home.

Others may have been put on furlough and yet others again may have been made redundant or simply laid off.

We are Thinking of You and Know We Will All Get Through This

Our hearts are with you and we are thinking of you. During this time, we all need to be kind to each other, take our time and not be hurried, pushing and shoving when in shops, etc.

If you need help, please be open to asking for it, rather than suffering alone or feeling like things are hopeless.

I can assure you that there is help if you ask, and there is also a time when this will all pass.

It is better to be smart, measured, and take our time, rather than go into panic mode.

As one person mentioned to me, when we all, as of March 27th, 2020, recognize that we need to isolate where possible, we will find that by staying indoors and being ‘put out of our comfort zone’ for a few weeks, is the best way to flatten the curve of mass infection and transmission of this virus.

I work for both myself as well as in a full-time position. However, I had to decide whether I was going to go to the office or stay with and look after my family. The choice really was quite clear for me and I am glad I chose to work from home, and be with my family.

It s scary, and it is a little uncertain, but this will definitely pass and we need to make sure that we are looking at our best long-term interests as a society and not think it will all end.

I certainly appreciate it is very difficult for some people, who may have been living from paycheque to paycheque, and please know I feel for you and understand your pain.

I was once there and pulled myself out of the hole, so to speak, and realize that we all need to be strong and understanding of each other.

I am committing to writing daily on my blogs and websites to help increase positivity as well as information reports to help us all get through.

I am working today on uploading many more reports to our shop which are designed to help you control your thinking and know that we can not necessarily change what is happening around us, but certainly, we can change how we react to what is happening around us. When we react differently to our core normal, we can concentrate and learn to better handle adversity and also to manage and cope better with the world around us. This is why I have been so fascinated by the developments around the world.

Please feel free to email or contact us, or even to comment.

Applying the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

Applying the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

Applying the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
By Renae Pelo

Universal laws are always working. You may remember from Jr. High chemistry that everything is either coming into form or going out of form at all times. That is called the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy. What does that have to do with living the laws of prosperity and success?

Consider the goals you are working on right now. Are they coming or going? Is that within your control? What can you do besides working harder and longer?

The universal laws we are talking about are thinking laws. Yes, of course, thinking leads to action. The goal is set with thinking and it is received through action. Let’s consider the thinking part as pertains to the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy.

Have you ever had something show up in your life with seemingly no effort on your part and wonder how it happened? Last fall I decided I wanted to attend the local college football game, much to the surprise of my husband and others. You see, I usually opt to stay home and do something less taxing, like read a book or do some gardening. Football games are usually hot and always very long. I usually go to one game and then remember why I didn’t go to more than one last year. That’s why my husband bought only one season ticket this year.

As the season progressed and our team was winning, I got the idea that I really would like to take in a game if the circumstances were perfect. It had to be a night game with a team we would likely beat. There were no tickets available, but a few days before the target game I announced my desire to go anyway. It didn’t look very promising and I didn’t stress about it. I just thought held my thought that it would be fun to go this once. It made me excited just to think about it.

Our son in law and grandson have seats next to us. The night before the game my daughter called to say that our grandson was sick and wouldn’t be going. Did I know someone who could use the ticket? I happily said I would like to go and I did. It was a balmy evening and we won. It was a fun evening, just as I planned.

At what point was it made possible for me to go to the game? I believe that as soon as I had the desire to go to the game, the events were set in motion. I mentioned it to my husband and in time things fell into place. Energy was in motion creating my desires. I am not saying that I made my grandson sick. It could have happened in any number of ways. I am only saying that circumstances are perpetually coming or going according to our thoughts. I thought it was a nice idea and it happened.

Have you ever saved yourself a parking spot in front of the store you were headed for? This is one of the simplest demonstrations of the Law of Perpetual Transmutation. Just picture yourself pulling into that perfect spot and leave for town. It may not happen every time, but try it and see how often it does.

Now back to your current goals. Since everything is coming or going according to our thoughts it gives you a measure of control over the results you get. In fact, it gives you a lot of control. Have you ever noticed how the people who believe are the ones who receive? Do you believe your goals will be achieved or is your mind filled with doubt and fear? In either case, your thoughts will determine the outcome.

Make yourself a chart with your goal written at the top. Then make two columns under it. In the left hand column write all the reasons why your goal won’t happen and in the right hand column write all the ways it will happen. Put a big X through the left hand column and read the list on the right first thing every morning and last thing at night. You are opening up that perfect parking spot for your goal to pull into. You will know what to do to make it happen. Just play with it and have fun. Consciously applying the universal laws of prosperity and success make it fun and easy. This universal law is just one of seven powerful laws that can make your goal achievement predictable.

Renae Pelo is a passionate teacher of the universal laws of prosperity and success. “I am here to champion those who think they can’t live the life they want. I know from experience as a wife, mom, grandmother and business woman, that you can create a life of prosperity, strength and happiness if you want it, and who doesn’t?”

She has put her learning and experience with the universal laws together in her coaching practice.

Prosperity Prayer and the Importance of Desire for a Prosperity Consciousness

Prosperity and Prayer
Prosperity Prayer and the Importance of Desire for a Prosperity Consciousness

Prosperity Prayer and the Importance of Desire for a Prosperity Consciousness
By Dr. Toni LaMotta

Creating a prosperity consciousness is a life-long task. Most of us have been taught to be self-less and so, we often consider that any desire we have might be a selfish one. Many people I have known have simply shut down their desires. A true prosperity consciousness requires that we know what we want and desire it. The secret is in desiring it not for yourself alone but for the sake of sharing with others.

Catherine Ponder, in her book “The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity”, quoted Dr. Emily Cady, who wrote: “Desire is God tapping at the door of your mind, trying to give you greater good.” [ Dr. Cady was a physician and a Unity Teacher.]

I find this a very consoling and supportive position, for too many times we belittle our desires, thinking they are selfish. You know, the old BS (Belief System) that we’ve been taught…..You want too much; be satisfied with what you have, because there are so many who have so much less, blah, blah, blah. If we believe that Dr. Cady was correct, we may have frustrated God as IT was trying to give us a greater good. We turned our backs on God’s presence at our “door”, our mind. Poor God!

Ernest Holmes, in the Science of Mind Text had many opinions about desires. Here is just one:

“In gladness, then, we should make known our desires, and in confidence we should wait upon the Perfect Law to manifest through us.” SM 272,1

Now THAT is really comforting because not only are we to pay attention to our desires but the Creative Law is ready to manifest what we want. Such a deal!!

With that in our Belief System, let us USE the Law so we can experience the desires of our hearts and souls! What follows is a prosperity prayer. Use it often, modify it to make it more personal, and watch the effects in your life.

The Mind of God, that over-abiding Presence is in and as all things, because It is The Source, the ONLY Source. It has created out of Itself all that is, therefore each one of us is one of those creations. We not only come from God, but we are God Substance, so what is true of God is true about us. The desires we have, to express and expand our lives, is God attempting to show us the greater good that is waiting for our acceptance. Our desires have a Divine Source!

[I shall now speak in the personal.] Believing beyond any doubt that this is so, I know I can command the Law to bring them into my life. I desire [claim what you want as if you already possess it]. With great joy I accept the wonder-working ability of this Power to bring to me my desire. I also promise myself that from this moment on I shall pay attention to my desires, knowing that God, the Source, has been knocking at my mind/door, so that It can give me the greater good that is waiting for me.

I am so thankful for my desires and the Power that manifests them for me. It is done, and I enjoy the pleasure and peace of acceptance.

It is important to feed your mind with lots of positive and new understandings about prosperity and its true source. If you go now to and enter your email in the box on the right, you’ll be sent free gifts and you will find several other prayers, articles and videos that can support the process of change and a greater prosperity consciousness. Lots of inspiration that will take away all fear around money.

Reclaim Your Life by Recognizing Prosperity

Reclaim Your Life by Recognizing Prosperity
Reclaim Your Life by Recognizing Prosperity

Reclaim Your Life by Recognizing Prosperity
By Pat Honiotes

As you go through the process of reclaiming your life, is there any possibility that you may be dismissing, ignoring, or discounting some of the prosperity in your life? While, at the same time, desiring, longing for, chasing after and working “really hard” to have more, never seeming to really get it?

There are those who ignore prosperity (usually because it does not look exactly like they think it should look);

  • those that give away prosperity (it is not really what they want);
  • those that do not pay attention to prosperity (maybe because it does not come in exactly the package they wanted);
  • those that “not enough” pieces of prosperity (“But that is not enough to pay the rent.”);
  • and then there are those that do not recognize pieces of prosperity (maybe because it is not in the form of money).

All of this loss of prosperity happens usually because they may have a very narrow definition of prosperity…like only money is prosperous.

You might want to take a few moments to check out your definition of prosperity and see how encompassing it is.

Then there are those who “do” prosperity every single day.

They write and say their affirmations every day.

They choose very carefully the words they say out loud thereby doing the basic law of prosperity…what you radiate out comes back.

They mentally picture what they want every day.

They create a wheel of fortune and look at it every day thereby invoking the imaging law of prosperity.

They give away something or clear something out of their homes and lives every day thinking they are invoking the vacuum law of prosperity.

In other words, they follow all of the rules of prosperity and then wait for their reward.

It is like they put their order in at the desk at Home Depot and are now waiting at the loading ramp to pick it up and take it home.

Unfortunately, that is just not the way it works.

It really works by living prosperously, by “being” prosperous in any given moment.

It is about the spirit of prosperity.

It is about seeing and embracing all prosperity; not just the financial kind.

It is only when you can see and embrace ALL of the prosperity in your life, that is, live the laws of prosperity rather than just following the rules of prosperity, that you will truly begin to reap the benefits of true prosperity…..including financial.

Living the spirit of the laws of prosperity will probably take some practice for most of us.

Consider focusing on you and your possible prosperity for the next 28 days and follow the practice steps below to see how much prosperity you can recognize, accept and embrace in your life.

  • 1. Be open to ALL forms of prosperity, including financial, no matter how large or how small and make a note of it in your journal…..for the next 28 days…..and see what happens.
  • 2. When you wake up in the morning, sit up, clap your hands and say (sing, proclaim, shout) “It is going to be a great day!” Sound silly? Okay…feel silly, sound silly and…..take the action anyway…..for the next 28 days. Does this mean you are going to automatically have a fabulous day? No. It does not. But it will start your day more light hearted, which is more prosperous in itself. Try it, you may be surprised.
  • 3. When you have finished proclaiming a great day, get up, go to the mirror, look into the eyes of the person in the mirror and say, “I love and accept you.” Wink, smile, and give yourself a hug and go on to the rest of your day….for the next 28 days. Notice anything?
  • 4. Be honest with yourself, God, Great Spirit, Universe about how you are feeling….even if you are not feeling particularly prosperous, happy, focused or energetic. Then practice the prosperity techniques and tools embracing and accepting however you feel all at the same time…..for the next 28 days.
  • 5. Surround yourself with the images, the sounds, the smells, the energy that help you focus on your goals, your wants, your dreams, your desires…..for the next 28 days.

This is not about thinking happy thoughts and being positive and everything will be fine.

So, through all of this make sure you stay aware of your reality…..

What is my financial situation?

How can I have it be better?

Is there anything I need to deal with physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually in order to clear the path for my prosperity?

If there is, then take the steps to deal with whatever comes up either within yourself or with your coach……for the next 28 days.

And then you ask yourself why you would not continue this process even after the 28 days!

Thoughts Do Come True

Thoughts Do Come True

Thoughts Do Come True
By Denise Wallace

I have heard over and over so many years to govern what you think, or be in control of your thoughts. What you think about comes about, or What you focus on grows. I have been to seminar after seminar and everyone always talks about the importance of your thoughts, staying positive… Blah, Blah, Blah. I just did not get it or understand what our thoughts had to do with anything Until I was introduced to the Jack Rabbit factor by Leslie Householder. I started studying her work more intensely and as I was going through the mindset mastery course, I finally started to understand why it is so important to manage our thoughts and emotions. We were given an assignment to experiment on and it is through this process that I had some AHA moments and it all started to make sense. Following is of the experiences that I had regarding our thoughts and how what we think about really does come about.

Today as I was studying, my doorbell rang, and as I answered it, it was my neighbor’s husband. He was frantic and asked me if I would like their fridge/freezer, which was only 6 months old. WHAT!!!! You see they are moving, and all of their household goods were already packed and shipped out. Our housing development told them they had to pay for a new refrigerator because their kids had dropped something and it put a very small ding in the bottom of the fridge the night before their move out inspection. So, rather than leave the fridge for housing to keep after they where forced to pay for it, he offered it to us.

“… the crazy part is literally a couple days ago, I had a thought that it would be really nice to have an extra fridge so I could have space to make meals and store for the week, and here I am now with an extra fridge. I am still in shock over it.”

Remote Hypnosis

I had no intention of going out and buying a new fridge I literally just had a passing thought about it and how nice it would be. I did not sit and stew over it or worry about how I would get one. I just one, had a thought about getting a fridge, two, had a nice feeling about how wonderful it would be to have one, three, I had a clear reason as to why I wanted one and four, I went about my day without another thought about it. A couple days later there it was.

I had two “Aha” moments from this experience the first was that usually when I want something I sit and stew and worry over how I am going to make that happen or I sit and doubt myself on the possibility that it could happen then or I talk myself out of it. Do you see the difference? In acquiring the fridge, I had none of these conflicts I just felt good about having one. The second “Aha” was that I had a clear reason for wanting the fridge there was a purpose for it. I am finding that when I am clear about what I want it is easier to visualize it and have good positive feelings toward whatever it is I am trying to do or acquire.

Who Else Wants to Meditate Without Falling Asleep?

Who Else Wants to Meditate Without Falling Asleep?
By John Cielo

Falling asleep is one of the most common obstacles to meditation. Maybe you’re sitting at home when your eyes start rolling, and your head starts nodding. Maybe you’re at a meditation center when you find out you’ve been snoring for the past two minutes.

If you want to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits of meditation, you’ll need to stay alert. Study these tips so you can apply them the next time you begin to feel drowsy when you’re on your cushion.


Nodding off as soon as you sit down is a sure sign of sleep deprivation, and the issue is widespread. Almost 80% of Americans are getting less than the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep each night, according to a study commissioned by Dr. Oz.

The ultimate solution to staying awake during meditation is getting enough sleep on a regular basis:

Be consistent. One of the most effective sleep hygiene routines is going to bed and waking at the same time each day. Stick to your schedule as much as possible even on weekends.

Adapt your bedroom. Block out distracting background noises and lights. Buy a new mattress or pillow if your old ones make you toss and turn.

Manage stress. Anxiety can keep you up at night. If meditation is the only time you relax enough to sleep, it may be more constructive to take a nap instead of trying to force yourself to stay awake.


Being well-rested will take care of most of your troubles with snoozing during meditation.

If you need extra help, try these tips:

Open your eyes. Most forms of meditation recommend keeping your eyes slightly open and looking down with a soft focus. If that makes you doze off, try keeping your eyes wide open at least temporarily.

Check your posture. Sitting up straight on the floor or on a chair instead of slouching will enable you to breathe deeper and feel more energized. It also helps to lift your head slightly.

Find your peak time. Is there a time of day when you usually feel more productive? Switch your sessions to first thing in the morning or late afternoon if that’s when you’re in top form.

Walk around. Meditate on your feet. You can make walking meditation your main activity if you’re starting out or use it to supplement your seated practice on those days when you feel especially tired.

Join others. Sitting with a group provides extra stimulation. You may also want to avoid the embarrassment of having someone else wake you up.

Go online. Even if you’re meditating solo, you can find some company on the internet. Browse online for guided meditations you can listen to if your own thoughts are putting you to sleep. You can also watch videos with pleasant images that will keep you engaged.

Turn up the lights. Bright lights trigger hormonal changes that make it easier to stay focused. Sit down in a well-lit room or go outside on a sunny day.

Cool off. Similarly, colder temperatures are bracing. Turn down the thermostat at home or take off your sweater.

Eat light. What you consume counts too. Heavy meals and dehydration are likely to make you want to go to bed. Before meditating, enjoy a small snack like fruit or a green salad. Drink plenty of water or tea.

Reduce stress and increase your mindfulness by creating a regular meditation practice. Developing positive sleep habits and making a few adjustments in your environment can help you meditate without falling asleep.

Our Minds are our Thoughts and Our Life

Thoughts Are our Life

Quite simply put, what we think is what we attract to ourselves- almost with no exception to this rule! In fact- let’s go one step further- what we ‘know’ so firmly, is brought to us in truth and clarity with tangibility.

Thoughts are our Life and Return

I know it is for some reason, easy for us when we are down or depressed to think of the worst, because it takes less work and effort than that required to be positive and put a positive spin on things.

However, when we apply the teachings of past mind masters, and learn about pure thought and mental process, we are able to become deeply appreciative and see through clear.

Let me explain further…

I have demonstrated to myself on numerous occasions, that when I not only believe, through deep visualisation, but actually have formed a deep specific view and knowledge that something will turn out a certain way, processes are put into force in the ether to bring it about and so occur.

This may seem very unusual to the casual reader who has not read of this phenomenon before, but it can certainly be proven to be very effective, not only for me but for many before me too.
