reiki is a way of chanelling the natural flow of life energy, or chi, through the hands -  for the benefit of all beings.

it has been passed down in an unbroken lineage from mikao usui. a japanese practitioner of tendai buddhism and other methods of energy cultivation, from taoist and shinto traditions.

on its way to the west reiki picked up some western flavours, and new age additions. currently there's increasing interest in the roots of the practice, as passed down directly from usui's students. they are based in the aforementioned energy cultivation practices, intensive chanting of the kotodama - 'word spirits' in japanese, and following the five precepts:

the secret of inviting happiness through many blessings

the spiritual medicine for all illness

 

just for today:

 

do not anger

do not worry

with appreciation

do your work

be kind

reiki (understood as life energy transmitted for the benefit of others) is a healing offshoot of spiritual practice, rather than a treatment technique to be learned.

it can be awakened and enhanced by empowerments from a reiki master, who has done years of work on strengthening their channel and getting themselves 'out of the way' so they do not impede its flow (not, i would say, possible during a few weekend workshops).

 

the first level of awakening the channel, shoden, concentrates on cultivating the energy flow and a state of power and wellbeing, and the second, okuden, on allowing the healing energy to flow to others. the other person receives the reiki in exactly the way they need it. typically this is accompanied by a deep state of relaxation and receptivity, which in itself works miracles.

this flow works just as well long distance, as time and space are not really the barriers we take them to be.

 

likewise, the barriers between you and me.

i am a reiki master, with over 20 years experience of working and healing with life energy.

here are some ways to find out more and/or work with me:

We intend to stay as free from state interference as possible and limit our exposure to bureaucracy, the madness of permissions and licensing, hence we intend to keep things as simple as possible according to current legislation by erecting small energy-efficient, permission-free buildings and an off grid electricity system.

While the plan for development of the land we sketched goes as far as 15 years ahead it is in no way final and merely reflects our current understanding and intention. We give ourselves the right to be flexible and modify our views to accommodate the knowledge and experience we gain on this adventure. Presently an unincorporated association, Terrealuma may take on the form of a charity or any other legal form appropriate at the time to ensure the continuation and perpetration of the idea when we are gone.

​In the meantime,  we'd much rather open up to help from those who resonate with the vision than take advantage of state funding or subsidies. If you'd like to volunteer to help with building, gardening or any of the work we're doing now, just drop us a line. We need help on all levels and you are welcome to contribute, with money, skills or simple prayer.

Combining ancient and contemporary technologies

We inhabit the grey area between the black or white choices  presented these days. So yes, we embrace progress while being immersed in tradition, understanding that ancient technologies in many cases are still ahead of modern science and  are in no way contradictory but complimentary. And in the never-ending quest for homo luminous, we hope that Terrealuma will become a safe place, a beacon and catalyst for those who wish to advance on a personal level and as a collective by making use of seemingly opposing methods and philosophies in the delicate balance of the middle way.

meditation in anxious times

what does 'terrealuma' mean?  

 

terrea   earth, work, nourishment, shelter                                                                                                       

real       a direct experience of something that works

     

luma     light, the true nature of the mind

aluma   to light a fire, to initiate action.

our story - the dream, intentions, and lasting hope

terrealuma is a healing refuge created out of a pure dream, and spurred on by the ever-expanding absurdity of our day to day reality in a society where food makes you ill, medicine kills and leaders are mere handlers  of interests. with greed and anger as the two dominant forces driving society, we may feel overwhelmed and abused on a daily basis and shrink - giving up more and more of our 'territory' to the point where we have to dissociate to carry on.

 

yet we sense that another way is possible, a natural, logical way,  where people are responsible for their actions, food is nourishing, medicine heals, and neighbours look after each other. we try to remember that ultimately this is all just a game, a show, an opportunity for us to forge our characters.

 

we try to remain calm and steady within the mess, firm and true to the core of love, logic and compassion.

If you're interested in getting your juice back by regenerating your creativity, which is one of the things that we do on the land, the first step is softening your mind and your attitude to yourself.

We could all use some help with that, so here's a video meditation for you, called

All of you is here.

Just click on the link and enter the password 'soften'. 

It's the audio that matters obviously, as I'm just sitting there with my eyes closed and you probably will be too, but I like the feel of another presence with me when I'm meditating alone at home sometimes, or to just look up if I get a bit lost in some thoughts or feelings and see that somebody else is there, holding the calm space.

 

And this was a beautiful day to reactivate. i'm sorry that you can hear the wind!

See you soon.

Love,

how to keep yourself calm when anxiety is all around?

 

control the things you can control.

 

take care of your body, and take care of your mind.

meditation is a tried and tested way of taking care of your mind, full on and directly.

 

it's not a way of spacing out, or denying what is real.

you don't actually have to sit still to do it.

you don't have to join a cult or any particular social group.

you don't have to stop thinking. you don't have to stop feeling.

meditation's the art of not getting sucked into compulsive storylines about what's going to happen in the future or what happened in the past, or what you should have said or what you didn't do or could have done better, etc, etc ad nauseum.

so you could say that meditation needs to be the number one priority right now when we need all our energy to confront the actual situation at hand.

we simply can't be wasting emotional and mental power on internal drama.

at the same time it can't just be ignored. so what's the answer?

* give yourself radical permission

whatever you're thinking or feeling, allow it.

not like some kind of spiritual trick - 'i accept you in the hope that you'll quickly disappear'. that one doesn't work.

actually give yourself full and frank permission to feel however it is you're feeling, to think whatever it is you're thinking.

your mind likes to think, that's fine, that's what it's for.

* keep some attention on the safe thing

and at the same time, keep a little attention on something in you which is not the thoughts and feelings. it might be the breath. it might be some area in your body that feels less tense, that feels ok, or safe.

keep a tiny amount of attention there, on purpose.

when you lose it, you can always come back.

* keep coming back

that's more or less what meditation is, when you lose it, come back. rinse and repeat.

at first it may seem like a thankless task, but with time the balance shifts. there 's a little more confidence in your own intention and control, and the effects themselves, a little more peace, feel good, soften you, and enable you to think and feel what you need to be thinking and feeling right now, more efficiently, in order to do what needs to be done.

if you want to sit on a cushion, or chair, spine straight, hips above your knees if you can manage it, then do so.

if not then while moving, dancing, working, doing any daily task, you can always give yourself permission

* do this anytime, any way that suits you
