Welcome to 2024, and with it a change in the tide. I bring with me over 25 years experience as a Reiki Master and Teacher, and over 40 years operating businesses and working with people to help them to transform their lives.

I feel very blessed to be working with our amazing Board, and helping to support them to find their strengths so that we can all grow Reiki Australia and bring about change in these turbulent times, to help our members thrive.

The past few years have brought many challenges to all businesses and particularly not-for-profit organisations when we can find it difficult to get volunteers at times, but my goal is to steam-line practices so we become more efficient, to free us up to be able to focus on what’s important, and are then able to better serve you, our members. Reiki Australia is a member’s organisation run by members, for members. Our Board are all volunteers who have full time jobs, so if we are working smarter, we will have more time to devote to the spiritual practice of Reiki, and bring this aspect back into the way we operate Reiki Australia.

Reiki is a heart centred, spiritual practice and an art. This is how it was meant to be. We are facilitators of healing and are the hollow reed through which this Universal life-force energy flows, so our focus needs to be more on balance and creating an environment where we are able to live the tenants of Reiki as a way of life, not just a business or something we do in our spare time.

Reiki Australia is centred in integrity and being of service to our members. We want the wider community to see Reiki as a Professional Practice, not just woo woo. All of our members have a direct traceable lineage to the founder, Mikao Usui and have been trained in-person. They all sign a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics. When you have a treatment with or are trained by a Reiki Australia Member, you know that they are of the highest calibre. Our ARTP (Accredited Reiki Treatment Practitioners) have undergone more training, and we believe this is another pathway to assist our members gain the professional edge.

This year we will be asking more about how we can serve YOU, and making changes to deliver more value and support to our members, to help you connect with your own gifts and share them with confidence.

Our Board and our Team invite to to share your ideas to help us all grow. We also invite you to volunteer your time and services if you have the capacity to do so as many hands make light work and we are always appreciative of any assistance. 

Just for today…

Our precepts guide us to live in harmony, by being fully present in each moment to create from within, and shine our light.

May each of us find a clearer pathway through our Reiki daily practice, so we are able to shine our light into the world and make a difference. 

We are all in this together!

Many Reiki Blessings to All. 

Love & Light,

Carol Macrae

Director (Chair) Reiki Australia.
