    A Must Have

    I have read all four of Steve Murray¿s Books, Reiki the Ultimate Guides 1,2,3, and Reiki False beliefs Exposed for all. I use them all the time as reference. I have been studying the Healing Arts for some years now, and felt my greatest shift in energy when I first took the Reiki One Attunement through Steve¿s DVD program. Now I am a Reiki Master, and I owe it all to Steve Murray¿s belief that Reiki should be available to all. I studied Reiki for about 6 months prior to finding out about Steve Murray¿s program, I thought it would never be possible for me. All the other programs cost too much and I had to travel, which was another expense I didn¿t have. I have still read other Reiki Books and Information, none of them were as thorough and informative as Steve Murray¿s 4 books. They filled in all the holes that the other sources left out or didn¿t want to release. In my opinion this Program is the best out there, nothing is cryptic, it is all easy to follow and understand, at a fraction of the cost. Without these 4 books by my side, I would have too many questions, and not enough answers. Which would hinder me from giving the best Reiki Service I can. Thank you, Steve! Keep up the good work, I believe you are spreading a powerful message to the masses, that message is of peace. Namaste

    Excellant Informatable Book

    I have read this book from cover to cover I find it to be one of the best to answer questions of reiki healers everywhere and also for any type of person who is a healer or looking to become one. Although some reiki Master will be upset by this informative book I myself am a Reiki Master and I beleive this is an excellant book for all who seek the truth.

    The Truth... Finally!!

    It is about time that someone had the courage to bring out all the crazy ideas that were spreading around and bring truth to people about Reiki which is the most wonderful thing in the world. Reiki Master Steve Murray had spent considerable time to research and expose a lot of the ideas that have been circulating around for years, keeping healing away from the people that should have it. For those who already have Reiki, Imagine this.... You are first attuned to Level I Reiki, you are of course in a wonderful mood, exposed to some of the best feelings you have ever had, and WHAM.. you are now told that this teacher you have studied with, this school is affiliated with ONLY TRUE REIKI!! Mr Murray puts that and all the other crazy ideas away as his carefully written book shows how in truth, Reiki is for everyone. As in all his past books, the information is easy to understand, well formatted and an absolute must for every Reiki Practicioner and especially every Teacher.

    This is a must read for Reiki people as well as non Reiki people

    This is the latest book of Steve Murray. I must say that this book also contains a wealth of information as his previous books. This book is also for non Reiki people because it clears so many miss-conceptions about Reiki which normally people have for example some people ask ¿Is Reiki magic?¿ This book will tell them what exactly is Reiki and what it does or does not. Now for the Reiki people: This is the most important book ever written, why? Because it answers so many questions about Reiki, which we all have. Unfortunately until now there were no answers to these questions or let me call myths. For example I always have this question that is it possible to cross hands or legs while giving or receiving Reiki. My previous two Reiki gurus had conflicting answers. The first one was o.k. but the second guru was strictly against it. In fact at her house it was a sin to cross legs or hands even while talking. When I asked the reason I was told that don¿t ask just believe. Over the last 5 years I had numerous questions like this which were never answered to my satisfaction. I received this book 3 hours back and I finished reading it just now. I am very happy to say that this book answered all my such questions in the most convincing way. I am grateful to Steve to write such a wonderful book. This will help numerous Reiki healers across the globe to get answers for the questions they always had. This book also has the drawings of variations in Reiki symbols. Around 90 such symbols are shown. Some non traditional Reiki symbols are also shown. At times it is useful to look up as a reference for these symbols. I highly recommend this book to all Reiki healers at all levels. Its a must read for the Reiki masters as well. I am sure that after reading this book you will become even a better healer because most of your doubts will vanish. A MUST READ BOOK FOR ALL.

    It's Nice To Finally Know the Truth!

    I have all of Steve Murray's Reiki books and this one puts the icing on the cake. I have been a Reiki Master for 5 years and learnd so much from this book! I was taught alot of these misbeliefs in the training that I had. Steve's style of writing makes all of his books very easy to read and at the same time puts alot of information out there that is very simple to understand. I guess I need to go rewrite all of my manuals now that I give out when I teach! I don't want to pass along incorrect information! Thank you Steve Murray for making the truth known!

    At last, the truth about Reiki

    Before I met Steve Murray, I knew absolutely nothing about Reiki--I'd never even heard the word before. But after reading Steve's Reiki books, particularly this latest one in which he talks about all of the false beliefs being perpetuated about Reiki, I feel far more confident about moving ahead in the learning process. Steve pulls no punches, he dispels all rumors, he tells you what's true and what's false--much to the dismay of those Reiki teachers who would prefer that their students not know the truth. I think they want their students to remain ignorant because they can be more easily influenced and controlled. Every student of Reiki should be grateful to Steve Murray for his courage in shedding light on these 'mysteries' for the benefit of all--believers and non-believers.

    Packed with loads of great info

    I already own Steve's 5 attunement DVDs and his first 3 books, all of which I have found absolutely invaluable. Steve's latest book exposes many of the myths, stories and assumptions that have been floating around in the Reiki community. I really liked how Steve covered giving and receiving Reiki treatments, along with distance healing and attunements. Many of the things I learned in the book will really improve the focus of my practice. This book is a must for an Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Master.

    Calling a Spade a Spade

    The Reiki I and II classes I took with a Reiki Master were very shallow. I had a thirst to understand and asked a lot of questions, which seemed to be met with unrelated stories that did nothing but frustrate me. I think part of my problem is I have been a teacher for 15 years and teachers are always the worst students. My fallback plan was Google which has a lot of awesome information that started to fill the gaps. The problem there is that the information conflicted depending on the site, and some of it just plain felt wrong. This book affirmed a few things that I had felt were right, but do not have the experience or years under my belt to jump to such conclusions. This book helped me in that respect and while I found myself being dragged down a road that would have made this appear to be a new 'religion' this book brought it back to what Reiki was meant to be in its purest form.....In my opinion.
