Living with Reiki - A Book Review

I just had a look at my Kindle and I have six books going at the moment! The list is varied, I was reading 50 Shades and now I'm done with book 2 so I can move back to my normal interests: healing, vampire fiction, witchy fiction, quantum physics, Russian classics, and How to Blog a Book. At the moment I have War & Peace going as well as a new book I've just downloaded called the Magick of Reiki: Focused Energy for Healing, Ritual and Spiritual Development. Its written by a healer-slash-witch called Christopher Penczak. The reviews say it will teach me to use Reiki to further my spiritual development and to "partner with the universe" and make magic in my life! Sounds exciting. Magic is more than spells, I think it is about using the law of attraction and trusting universal energy to work for us as it best knows how. Can't wait to read the book! 

I was inspired to learn more about Reiki after downloading Wojciech "Nathaniel" Usarzewicz's latest book: Living with Reiki: the story of spiritual journey through the healing art for new age. If you are not familiar with Nathaniel, he runs a blog called A State of Mind which  used to be obstinately psi-oriented, and has recently been transformed into spirituality, manifestation and pure positivity. The past year I've been reading Nate's posts on ASOM wondering what caused the shift and his book spells out the answer. It looks like Reiki has changed his outlook on life! Nathaniel is also applying it in ways that I hadn't thought of. Funny thing is I put the book down 2 months ago, and stopped just before Nate explained how we used Reiki to start his publishing company, find more readers and sell more books. That is what I'm aiming to do right this minute! =) 

I'm curious to learn more about Reiki, particularly the way Nate applies it. His books talks in great detail about how he has used it to bring about positive change in his life. Integrating everything we know is the real challenge. Its easier to talk the talk than it is to walk the talk. Especially when you (I) are bombarded with info online and in books. How do we take all of the things we learn and use them to  heal aspects of ourselves that we thought we couldn't get away from? I felt compelled to stop reading and make a note of this before I forget it. Its nice to follow in someone else's footsteps, particularly when they've published lots of books (which I'd like to do!), and they've managed to heal themselves along the way. I'm going to wait till I've read the rest of the book before changing my Amazon book wheel, but I think this one will make my Top 10. Hmmmm, who would I bump? Possibly Nate's other book, Psychic Development Simplified? Only seems fair  ;-)
