“The Universe exists in me and I exist in the Universe” – Usui Mikao, Reiki founder.
Hello, I am Charlie Mark. I am a certified Usui Reiki Master.
By nature I tend to question things. I want to know all the why’s, how’s, and what’s in life. I’m also someone who has a lot of hope, love and compassion for the people and world around me.
I believe many of us want to feel like our existence benefited this world. That somehow we had a positive impact on peoples lives.
I also believe many of us look up at the night sky and the vast array of stars and planets and know deep down inside we are not alone.
When I was in my late-thirties my wife and I were very active in the Christian church. She genuinely loved our mutual faith and was studying to become a Pastor. Unfortunately, while she was in her final year of seminary, she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
We prayed, had elders from the church lay hands on her, and went to the best doctors. But sadly after 15 months, she passed away.
This moment of incredible loss in my life shook me to my core. It also left me with more questions than answers about divine healing.
These questions created a curiosity within me. My heart and mind became more open to other approaches to spirituality and the Divine.
In time the Universe blessed me with a new partner. She has a beautiful heart and is understanding of the loss I went through. She introduced me to crystals, meditation, smudging, and sound healing.
One night while trying to massage a knot out of her back, I experienced something new. My hands and arms started tingling to the point that I thought they were falling asleep. Then much to my amazement, I felt the knot melt away under my fingers.
My girlfriend gasped and said, “You are doing Reiki on me!”
I pulled my hands back and said in disbelief, “really? I am?”
When I placed my hands back on her back the sensation got stronger. I could also sense amazing energy in the room around us.
I knew at that moment I was experiencing a significant spiritual event. I also knew that I wanted to learn more about Reiki.
I enrolled in a Reiki course to learn more about this newfound gift. After some intense and amazing study, I worked towards being a Reiki Master.
Reiki has helped me have a much more personal relationship with the Divine. My meditation, prayer and worship time have all benefited. Through Reiki I have gained something really valuable that as a person I needed. I can now actually feel Gods presence.
My faith now has a real component to it. So often in life people who practice a religion want to experience something real. We want to have a moment we can not explain away through science or rational thought. We want a moment that we can only attribute to the Divine. Reiki gives me that, and as a result I feel a lot closer to Jesus and the spirits in the heavenly realms.
I am hopeful you will join me on this journey of Reiki. And that as a Christian Reiki Master I can share with you what I learn along the way.
Until next time,
Namaste, my friends,
