The Book of Remembrance
Sepher Zikaron
Sepher Zikaron
"Your words have been harsh against Me" says the LORD of Hosts. "Yet you say "What have we spoken against You?"
You have said, "It is useless to serve God; What profit is it that we keep His Way and walk in humility before the LORD of Hosts."
So, now we are declaring the proud happy and the arrogant blessed, and those who do wickedness are raised up; they place their will above God's and get away with it.
Then, those who Loved the LORD spoke with each other, and the Lord listened and heard them. "A Book of Remembrance" was written before Him for those who Love the LORD and who meditate upon His Name.
"They shall be Mine" says the Lord of Hosts, "On that day I make them My jewels and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him."
"Then you will again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who serves Him not." (Malachi 3:13-18)

The Gift of Love and Healing

Cho-Ku-ReiThrough the attunement process, unique to Reiki, the Gift of Love and Healing is easily received.
Reiki is a Japanese word pronounced Ray - Key
Rei - means "Divine Love", "Divine Wisdom"
• Ki - (Chi, Prana) means "Vital Energy" or "Life Force Energy" which flows in and through everyone and everything  
• Reiki is the essence of Life Energy guided by The Divine Love and Wisdom of Our One Creator.

Reiki in essence is "Love guided by God"


Cho-Ku-Rei Paul Hess


The gift of "Reiki Healing" is very easy to receive.  It doesn't take years of practice or study.  The gift of Reiki Healing is received through an attunement that, miraculously, takes about an hour.  The only requirement to receive the Reiki Attunement is to be open to receive it.

Reiki Attunements can be received in person in a classroom setting facilitated by the Reiki Teacher or attunements can even be received at a distance in the comfort of your own home.  Both methods work perfectly well.

After receiving a Reiki Attunement, healing energy will automatically flow in and through you for healing and personal growth.  You do not have to will the energy to flow.  All that is necessary is to have enough willingness to place your hands and trust.  Once you have received a Reiki Attunement you will always have the gift of Reiki.  You can never loose it and it will never wear off.

By simply placing your hands on yourself or others Reiki Healing Energy automatically begins to flow in and through you for healing.  There is no need to direct or manipulate the Reiki Energy.  It is guided by God's Love and Wisdom and will automatically flow to where it is needed for healing and the highest good of all.

Because Reiki Healing Energy comes from God and is Guided by God and not your own personal energy, your own energy is not depleted when practicing Reiki.  You may also receive energy and healing as you are laying hands on someone for their healing.

Even though Reiki is a gift from God it is not necessary to believe in God for Reiki to work.  Reiki is a gift of God's Grace, not a belief system or religion.  In fact you may actually believe that it wont work and have just the little bit of willingness to place your hands and trust. .....

May the words of an ancient hymn resonate within you as you witness the gift of healing through Grace.

"I once was lost, but now am found
was Blind, but now......I see."

Traditional Meaning of Reiki

Reiki KanjiThe old form Kanji (Japanese system of writing) describes the healing system known as Reiki. It is easily explainable as follows:
Reiki- On the earth stands a shaman (healer) with his arms raised against the sky. From the heaven the rain comes down with lifesaving energy consisting of 3 parts, Light, Love and Wisdom. The shaman (healer) acts as a channel (channeling this energy down to all the people of the Earth). The Reiki Teacher is the channel when s/he initiates students and practitioner is the shaman (healer), when s/he channels this spiritual energy to the people treated.

Rei KanjiRei – Strokes, 24. Consists of 3 parts. Top is rain, middle is things and bottom is Shaman. Rei means "spirit or spiritual". The Japanese dictionary defines Rei as: (1) Spirit; the spiritual aspect of the human being as contrasted to the physical. (2) Divine, luminous, charismatic, supernatural, mysterious. (3) The luminosity of the spirit; the luminosity of a God or Sage. (4) Inconceivable spiritual ability; charismatic power; charisma; wonderful; a wonder. (5) A rainmaker, a diviner; a person or being with spiritual or supernatural powers. (6) A shaman. (7) Goodness; good, excellent, efficacious. (8) Clever, nimble, sharp. (9) Life. (10) A living being; a human being. (11) A supernatural (mythical) beast or being; a fairy, an elf. (12) Pure, undefined, unpolluted. (13) Bright, clear.

KiKi – Strokes, 10. Consists of Breath with rice (Rice in Japan is sometimes used as a synonym for people). Ki means "energy". The Japanese dictionary defines Ki as: (1)Vital energy connected with the breath. Invisible life-force, somewhat equivalent to the Indian Prana. (2) In the view of Zhuxi and other Neo-Confucians, the material force of the Universe. The generative forces of heaven and earth, by means of which all things are constantly reproduced. (3) Air. (4) Breath, steam.

Is Reiki a Religion?

Hands of LightEarly one morning Jayson received a letter from Jacqui Smith, who asked us, "Is Reiki a religion?" With her permission, we share the letters exchanged between Jayson and Jacqui.  Thank you, Jacqui, for asking this very valid question.

Dear Jayson,  my daughter was telling her friend that her mother (me) was very interested in Reiki and that I sat every month to join others in prayer for love and repair of the world.

My daughter's friend said that it is against the religion of Church of England and that I shouldn't do it.  Can you clarify anything in simple english - do you know, is it?

I hadn't taken any religion into mind when I started Reiki, I thought it encompassed every religion and that we were all "family" together.  Am I wrong?  Am I supposed to change my religion?

Thank you for any help you can give.
Warm regards
Jacqui Smith

Hello Jacqui,

Reiki is not a religion and anyone of any religion can benefit from Reiki.  The word Reiki means "Love guided by God."  It is God who is giving us the gift of Reiki.  I went to the Church of England website and found the following statements that support being of service to humanity.

"Aim - to encourage and support the mission and ministry of parishes and other Anglican communities in multi religious contexts, supported by the Church of England's national Adviser on Inter Faith relations.

The Church of England, in partnership with other Christian churches, seeks to build up good relations with people of other faith traditions, and where possible to co-operate with them in service to society.

Christian life is lived in relationship with God through Jesus Christ and, in common with other Christians, seeking to deepen that relationship and to follow the way that Jesus taught."

Jesus taught that He came not to condemn the world but to save it.  He taught to Love like Him.  His message is clear that we are to be of service to humanity if we would like to find our purpose.  Reiki is a path of service and Love for all.  Love leaves no one out.

The word Christian simply means a follower of Christ (Messiah).  It is said in the Book of John in the New Testament that "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God ………. and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

We know that Jesus, Yeshua is the living Word made flesh, the very incarnate of God. Reiki is Love Guided by God, our beloved Yeshua.  Isn't that awesome!

In Tune With Love

Many people write to us asking for healing in their lives; their health, career, prosperity, relationships and Love.  

Many people also write to us after being attuned in Reiki and tell us how their life is changing for the better, how they have a sense of well being they didn't have before and life is just flowing along easier in every way.

To tune or attune means "to bring in harmony with," like tuning a musical instrument.  God is Omnipresent and is perfectly in tune with Love.  God is so in tune with Love because God is Love.

When we let God attune us, our strings, chords, strands, meridians and our total subtle anatomy becomes attuned and begins to vibrate in tune with, in harmony with, Our One Creator.

The more time we spend with God, the more we become in tune with God's Light that is Love because we were created by God with the Light of Love.  That is Our Original Nature.  How else could we even recognize the Light of Love unless it is part of Our Original Nature.

Each month we gather together for the Reiju Attunement, the Attunement that Our One Creator gives to us as we enter the Presence of Love together as one family.  By this simple act of being, willing to receive help from beyond ourselves, God's Grace enters our life. We receive Love as well as share it with others as we remember family, friends, community and the world during this precious time together.

Yeshua said, "Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." (Matthew 18:20)

Yeshua said, "Very truly I tell you, I Am the door of the sheep. Whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly. (John 10:8-10)

The Rock

"Our Mother, the Formless Foundation of Creation speaks to the heart of all souls."

'God's Love as Light is with you. Become a disciple, a student of My Love, because you are a part of Me.

As you surrender I will come into your heart and life and be your Teacher and Friend.

As you abide in Me, My Love will abide in you and become the Solid Rock Foundation upon which Yeshua, the Salvation of all souls, is established.

The Word of God made Manifest, through Wisdom, insparks the Great Gathering as one family.

Through this joining of all souls, the Fiery Law of Love, through Grace, joins with the disciple; the student and the teacher become One.

By Wisdom, Loving Kindness flows through the Discipline of Faith and all souls receive the Gift of Everlasting Life.'  

(Our Mother speaks through Yeshua - Matthew 16:18)                        (Transliterated from the Hebrew)

If My People

The Attunement of 1•24•15

At the beginning of the hour of every attunement, Leslie prays the opening prayers for everyone who gathers with us to receive the attunement.

As she was praying for the healing of the world, the words of a song were given to her. "We are the people your call set apart, Lord, this time change our heart."

As she pressed on praying, the words came out of her mouth, "We are heavily laden, Lord, please remove the darkness that causes so much pain and suffering. Lift us from all that holds us bound. "We are Your People."

These words brought about a remembrance of a scripture verse from the Bible in 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says:

If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

"Who are Gods People?"

God's people are all the souls created by God. That means every human being is part of God's People, God's Family.

We are looking forward to Reiju Reiki with you.

In Light and Love,

Jayson and Leslie
