Best Books on Medical Intuition

I learned Reiki about 10 years ago and ever since I’ve been wondering about techniques for healing. Don’t get me wrong, Reiki is an amazing system, an ultimate system. However, one of the key points is that we don’t direct Reiki, we simply channel it. There is no healer, there is only healing. However, my ego consciousness wants to direct the flow! So how can we go about doing that?

Tina Zion is a Reiki master, clinical hypnotist and registered psychiatric nurse. Her two books on Medical Intuition – and her book on Reiki – are absolute goldmines of information on how to understand clearly what is going with your client, with special techniques to help release problems, such as psychic intrusions, negative thought forms, addictions, soul loss and more.

Be warned, these are books that will take over your life. I have just finished the Advanced book, and it has taken me months to get through it. You have to keep stopping, read a bit of Middlemarch (or whatever else you have going on) and come back to it a week or so later, all the while practicing like a crazy thing.

So if you are frustrated with merely laying your hands on the clients’ body and hoping for the best, and you are looking to refine your healing and take on some fully next-level challenges, these are the books to get your mitts on.

Just Look at the Darn Cards, Will Ya?

Maman Miyuki’s Tarot de Marseille

Reading through Tom Benjamin’s Tarot on Earth ahead of next month’s Tokyo Tarot Book Club Event, I’m excited to begin reading what I actually see on the table (or in this case bed) instead of what I know.

In this spread, I asked about the nature of the relationship with the people I work with. So what do we actually SEE?

The significator is the central card. We see people meeting face to face and two cups. But they are separated by some ornate stem flower in a red vase – the Yoni is in the room! Below is the world surrounded by a whole botanical garden of foliage and encased in more ornamentation than a German Rococo church. The little fishy-monsters are looking at each other but showing their teeth. So this spread is about socialising, or not, and the pressures of the world underlying the urge towards potential friendships.

On the left we see a lot of cups upside down. There are upset emotions and cups that are not charged. In the centre is a little blue flower with a red centre… another Yoni, but feeling cold, it seems.

On the right is the 9 of Coins. Money or plates are on the table, and the door is open, but there is something barring the way, another something, a mirror, a world,  or a face that is separate from the rest, in the middle but enclosed in a fancy wall. At the risk of becoming tiresome, it’s a Yoni wall!  The flower buds reach out top and bottom, so there is potential for events to unfold, but even though the roots of the flowers connect, there is nothing happening yet and one person is being kept separate from the others.

So we are seeing a disconnection of people based on the tight constraints of the world. The left side (female) feels upset and that the wine is being wasted. The right side (male) feels that the central face needs to be kept apart, but it’s difficult because that person is right in the midst of everyone.

A pretty bang-on description of what is going on at work currently, I’d say. And all I did was look at the darn cards. Thanks, Tom Benjamin. This is a seriously great tool.

72 Sigils of Power

If you’re only ever going to buy one book on magic, let The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise be the one. I know I’ve said that before but this time I really mean it!

On the picture above you see a sigil printed on a piece of paper which I have semi-permanently installed on my altar. (You also get to see just how awful my poor altar looks at the moment – yes I know I need to refresh those flowers.)

What’s so amazing about The 72 Sigils of Power is that you change yourself and from there your understanding of the world, through direct connection with a G_d name. Talk about inner alchemy. The effect is deep, real, lasting change.

Tarot On Earth

I want to learn how to read the Marseille pips so I bought this book. Having a mini flip-through yesterday, hot off the postie’s moped, it looks fabulous. I’m hosting a Meetup event to discuss this book on the 29th April, in Shinagawa, Tokyo. Check HERE for further info or the Meetup image on any page of this site.

Thank you, White Fennec Fox

We all have guiding spirits, several of them, that help us throughout our lives. When we want to relate to them closely and we seek them out to communicate with them, they come to us in symbols , visions or dreams, and they help us to understand their natures more easily by showing themselves as animals. You can learn al about this in Ted Andrews’ book How To Meet And Work With Spirit Guides.

One of my beloved subtle energy team members is White Fennec Fox. His particular skill is finding material things of value. Great skill, huh? My darling White Fennec Fox has just helped me to work out how to manifest a chunk of money to get me and my daughter to Europe this summer. How’s that for an MVP? Thank you soooo much, my darling.

PS: If you’re thinking: “Aw, how cute! I want one as a pet”, just don’t. They are much happier in the wild than in your home and are difficult to train. #notapet #dontbeaselfishidiot

Long On Words, Short On Healing

Larry Dossey, MD – Healing Words – HarperOne

If you worry about the empirical science behind prayer and Healing, because you feel the need to prove to narrow-minded reductionists that this stuff WORKS, beyond what you already know because you have seen it work with your own eyes and done it with your own hands, then by all means read this book. Read it, memorise it, and spout the figures and double-blind, gold-standard reproduceable tests, that prove scientifically what you knew all along, because for some people, your experience and your word are not good enough. They need it on paper, because if it’s not printed on paper then it has no validity.

Jam-packed with case study after case study of “miracle” cures, ruminating the possible role of quantum mechanics in Healing and prayer, this is a roll-call of men in white coats with clip-boards scratching their heads over inexplicable cures that somehow defy current scientific “fact”. What this book doesn’t tell you is how to do the healing, which Healing Words to actually use. It’s hinted at, skirted around and vaguely suggested in the most woolly terms. But no actual words, as such.

If you’re looking for a real manual on Healing, read Barbara Brennan’s Hands of Light.

Did anyone say Trades Descriptions violation?

This Is It. This Is The Big One.

I’ve been studying Buddhism for about 25 years, and I’ve been studying Zen for about 15 years. As a healer, I’m very interested in subtle energies and I’m constantly looking for ways to deepen my practice.

For me, deepening my practice means entering more fully into the flow of my life, surrendering and relinquishing control to my Spirit Guides, finding or even just recognising streams of energy. Definitely, progressively allowing myself to trust more is a big part of my ongoing practice. It’s like learning to un-tense muscles, easing myself into my potential.

Lorin Roche’s Radiance Sutras (Sounds True, Boulder, CO, 2014), a translation of the Bhairava Tantra, opens the mind to the path of liberation in the same way as the Dogen Zenji’s poetry or the Heart Sutra. As the Sandōkai says: “Seekers of the Truth, Do not waste your days and nights in idleness”. Read this book.

Archangels Of Magick

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I’m a very big fan of the Gallery of Magick. This group of people publishes books on magic that are simple to use and effective. So it was with great pleasure that I bought this latest publication, Archangels of Magick. I’ve had it for a month now to test-drive it before giving my verdict.

As you’d expect from a GoM book, it strays a little on the wordy side but the rituals are very well explained, and easy to follow if you prepare and take care. Their efficacy is, well, really staggering.

You could buy and use this book without any previous knowledge or experience of magic or ritual magic, and all of their books are transformative.

With the warmest thanks for another excellent title.
