Dreams of the Reiki Shaman is a fascinating book about combining Reiki healing with shamanic journeying. It is an easy and joyful read that illuminates the potential to heal by combining these two elements.
The book is divided into three chapters: apprehending reality, journeys and their meanings, and practical applications and lessons. The first looks at seeing beyond what we perceive as reality to enable us to broaden our perspective. The second guides us on how to interpret journeying, retrieve soul parts, and to become aware of our power animals. The final chapter gives advice on dealing with malevolent spirits, using Reiki as a secret weapon against harm and how to deal with beings of light, plus much more.
Each chapter includes case studies, excerpts from the author’s “Energy Notebook” and key words to facilitate further research on subjects being discussed.
There are exercises throughout the book including how to link with power animals, expanding the scope of perception, and how to define your purpose in the moment. The case studies, combined with the exercises that Ewing supplies, really illuminate how well Reiki and shamanism can work together.
This book is packed full of information and inspiration for new and experienced practitioners alike, and is highly recommended.
