Hi, I last posted here about eight years ago when I popped in to see if the site was still up and running - which it was - and so I've popped in again, because I think of HP when I switch on the large Himalayan salt lamp that the then senior moderator, Mike, sent me to celebrate the success of the forums. The site does not seem to be that active possibly because of the growth of Facebook and other social (?) connections which have developed over the years. These vast forums are like a deserted mansion with a few beings populating the odd room or two. However, since then, when I was involved with Reiki as you can see from my now log-in name, my energies have been taken over with gong bath healing and meditations sometimes coupled with Yoga (taught by others). I have also found that there is virtually no difference between Reiki, Spiritual and all other forms of healing. After all, what's in a name? Although I belong to local Healing Groups and give regular healing to the public, my energies are now more Meditation and gong based. The almost instant meditative state reached when gongs are played is marvelous and the consequential healing cause by the vibrations of the gongs can be quite amazing. Also, my involvement in a Guinness Word Record held at Kensington Olympia, London, UK last August, when 194 gong healer-players from all over the world all played the same routine together, has made me realise that the gong playing healing is the way forward and lacks any of the conflict between the practitioners of other therapies caused by the 'my way is better than your way' attitude. It would be interesting to hear the thoughts of others on this subject. Please don't leave it too long if you choose to comment because being of advanced years I might not be here after another delay of about eight years.
