This page is one of a series where I share a personal experience or anecdote related to my Reiki work.  The pages are also intended to give you some "food for thought" and add to your overall Reiki knowledge base. 
While the experience has been my own, I feel that you should decide for yourself how much (if any) of the content has any usefulness to your own Reiki work. 

Many years ago, in the late 1990's,  I was asking my guides when I would be inspired to write and publish a book.  I suppose I was a bit envious of other Reiki authors I knew.  Plus, one of my students who was clairvoyant had said that I would indeed write a very good book.  Then one day after driving my girls to school, I stopped at a nearby coffee place called Max's Deli.  As I left the car I clearly heard my guide Cypress say in my mind to go back and get a pen and some paper.  I did so and then went into the cafe.  Once I had my coffee and muffin I sat down and then suddenly I had an overwhelming urge to write.  I began to write chapter heading after chapter heading for a book.  And as I wrote each heading I could sense the complete content of that chapter, as if I could write it all down now if I could write fast enough.  After about 17 or so headings it all stopped. 

I was quite amazed at all this and then Cypress said this wasn't the book I would write, but this is how it would all come to me when I was to write one. 

In following years I would have similar experiences a few more times, and one even began to turn into a book.  Instead it became a series of 4 articles at my Threshold Notes page - Threshold_Notes--Teaching-Reiki-Part-1.html

But eventually I realised that the book I would write had actually been in progress since 1996.  It wasn't, as I originally thought, my Reiki manuals. Instead it was my entire web site.  It had begun as articles on Reiki history and techniques, most with free pdf copies that people could download and share.  But eventually it turned more to sharing my own past Reiki and channeling "Experiences," and my "Notes" and ideas about taking energy work into our daily lives. 

I understood that by using the web site this way, my "book" was much more fluid and changeable than a printed copy could ever be.   And in many cases, the "Notes" articles also come with pdf versions for people to access and share. So in this way, my "book" is actually a free one and easily accessible.
