"You can't heal anyone but yourself, and nobody else can heal you. Healing is more than getting rid of the symptoms in your body. It is acknowledging their origin and purpose and lovingly releasing fear and discord from your mental, emotional, and physical,vibrations so that the symptoms are no longer required. Physical dis-ease is the last resort your soul has to communicate to you the dis-ease in your consciousness, which you cannot escape only heal. If you just fix the symptoms, you ignore and limit divine guidance", Paul Walsh-Roberts on Healing

The raven is a sacred bird in many traditions The raven is a teacher of magic and like the hawk was one of the creatures who re-created the world after the flood. It is said that the raven stole the sun, a reference to his love of bright things, but he is also a messenger of Great Spirit. As a guardian of sacred laws his appearance was regarded as a sign of coming change, and so he is a bird of transformation bringing new challengesThe Raven was considered a messenger and a magical bird in the Scandinavian traditions. The Celtic tradition considers the Raven a bird of healing Initiation and Protection. Raven brings the gift of healing at a very deep level by a process of resolution of the opposites as is observed in the Ravens nature. Even now in England legend states that if the ravens ever leave the site of the tower of London, then England will fall. This has its routes in Celtic mythology, here legend states that the Celtic hero Bran the blessed (which also means raven) ask that is head be removed and buried in the white mount facing south. As long as the head remains buried it would protect the kingdom. The tower of London was built on the ancient site ofthe white mount , and the totem power of the ravens gods head was transferred to the presence of the actual ravens in the tower to ensure the kingdoms safety.This legend is still taken seriously, during the second world war when the tower was bombed the ravens who has lived there for centuries flew away. Winston Churchill who has been initiated into a druidic order in 1908 immediately ordered there replacement with young ravens from north wales and Scotland.
The Raven has been our companion throughout much of our lives, hence the name of our Reiki practice, and other work at www.ravenswood-services.co.uk.
Thank you and Bob for showing me that this is all born of love, not competition. I think theres bee a lag for me between the attunements and it kicking in. I can only describe the Reiki thing in Egypt as a river of love flowing through me to the person i was trying to help. I just cant describe it well enough,just that even now it makes me emotional to think about it. I will endeavor to learn more, practice more and try to be worthy of what you, through the lineage have brought to me. I am interested in doing level two at some stage, but as to when i think that you and i will instinctively know when the time is right.
Right now i feel that am changing as a person. I want to mend all my broken bits, and shed some of the mental baggage I’ve accumulated over my life. I was joking with Bob about life being like the 'Matrix' and waking up to the hell in the film. Only i think that in reality theres something beautiful awakening, I’m sensing it as one would a flirting snatch of perfume in a breeze,untraceable, but intoxicant at its source.
Love and light, its beginning for me.
