Frans Steins is the co-founder of the International House of Reiki and Shibumi International Reiki Association with his wife, Bronwen Stiene, with whom he has co-authored several of his books. Reiki Insights is the latest publication and Steins looks back on some of the founders of Reiki and some of the principal insights into the system. This isn’t a practical workbook but an exploration with some depth and a light and warming touch.
The essential focus of the system of Reiki is foremost about rediscovering our original nature. Everything has original enlightenment beans within it, all we have to do is water them, give them light and keep the weeds out.
The Reiki precepts are repeated often and in reading them and following them, the healing and inner purpose of this system permeates the book.
- Do not anger
- Do not worry
- Be grateful
- Be true to your way and your true self
- Be compassionate to yourself and others
There is some history of Reiki in this book but the main message is about practice. One must practice the precepts, one must meditate.
Reiki Insights is primarily a meditative journey into the inner depths of the system of Reiki.
It is presented as a series of short chapters, each of them a teaching, so that you can pick it up, choose a chapter and read it. After you have read the chapter, sit down and meditate upon the words. Let them sink deep into your mind, body, and energy, so that you can feel what is in between the sentences. By reading and experiencing Reiki Insights in this way, it will lay a foundation for inner change, from not knowing your true self to knowing your true self.

In this wonderful book, Frans Stiene addresses ancient wisdom and meditation tradition in a very practical way to bring it to the modern world. It conveys a beneficial, heartwarming, and transformative experience, and will create happiness and joy for those who read it.
