To delve more into his journey, Emirates Man spoke to him to understand how it all began.

How did your journey with Reiki begin?

My Reiki journey, started over 35 years ago. I used to have a book shop in London, called the metaphysical center where people would come to buy books and seek my advice. Many were those people who would come and sit next to me telling me that just seated with me they would feel at peace, telling me that I was a natural born healer but I would not accept this. Then one day, a lady came in, saying that she was a reiki master and offered me a Reiki session. I was extremely in awe of this amazing energy that she was channeling for me that I decided to take the first level course then the second then on to the Mastership with William Rand in America a very important Reiki Master Teacher. During the years, My Reiki has developed more and more so much that up until now I’ve trained more than 7,000 people in the world in the beautiful amazing ancient healing Japanese technique. In the years of my journey, I have developed different aspects of Reiki and in these days I practice my own Reiki giving treatments to people and teaching them how to do it on themselves, and how to treat others.

How can Reiki sessions enhance someone’s life and balance their Chakras?

Reiki is all about energy flowing. So when one chakra is blocked, we clear and cleanse that chakra to let the energy going through the body. Let’s say that I see a person whose third chakra, the solar plexus chakra whose color is yellow , is completely blocked, then with Reiki you make them feel reassured and welcoming. Solar plexus chakra is the house of anxiety, depression, insomnia and the biggest of all is the house of fear. We live in a world of fear and we need to start clearing this chakra on a daily basis in order to live our lives in a more spontaneous and free way. That’s why I insist on having all the chakras completely cleansed. Reiki helps doing just that, channeling energy from the Source we clear and cleanse chakras. It is so very important to do this because once we have cleared the chakras, the energy flows freely in the body pushing away all the unwanted energy and with Reiki we replenish that energy that has left the body with clear, cleansed and blessed energy. Giving the person a vital and vibrant energy all along.

Reiki healing

What are the most common ailments that Reiki can treat?

Reiki is a healing technique that helps putting the body in balance through a therapeutic touch. I have helped people suffering with emotions related to the heart when they have lost beloved ones or have been rejected for instance or people who have gone through depression, anxiety fears insomnia. I have helped people suffering from headache, migraines. All these elements are all related to blocked emotions, and once we clear those emotions, once we heal them than the body heals itself. It is not a matter of healing, one particular part of the body of the physical body because Reiki does not work like that. My Reiki works to heal the soul in order for you to receive maximum benefits out of it. Reiki helps healing emotional pains that an individual goes through his life as we are all wounded children and we all need Reiki in our life.

Could you elaborate on the science behind energy work?

The substance of Everything in the world is energetic. Our thoughts are too. Quantum physics has scientifically demonstrated events that “science” would not consider possible. We are all energy and we all one.

What does a Reiki session look like from start to finish?

The person lies on a treatment table fully clothed and the practitioner put his hands on the body of the person in different positions to get the energy flowing. Reiki energy pushes away unwanted energy in the body in order for the good energy coming through. The person at the end feels energised and at the same time very relaxed and calm. To clear different blockages you might need multiple sessions. You establish that with the person as it is a very individual practice.

Is there any specific technique in your practice that is the most beneficial to the people you work with?

In all these years, I have created my own technique for my Reiki sessions. In order to achieve maximum benefit from a session I have divided my treatments in different modalities, such as looking at the person aura and through that looking at their chakra for balancing and aligning. I also give guidance to them talk to their guides and they beloved ones on the other side if they need to hear some messages, then I end the treatment giving a proper reiki session.

What are some of the practices that you can incorporate in your daily routine to make Reiki more effective?

Meditation is very important together with the Reiki, I practice on myself every single day in order to achieve maximum relaxation and peace throughout the day. Those are simple techniques that I practice to protect my energy in order to get daily healing.

What resources would you recommend to enhance this practice? Tell us more about the book you’ve written.

I have published many books and my latest one called PantaReiki has come out first of all in my mother tongue which is Italian, then in Arabic and English. I feel very fortunate to have been able to have my books translated also in Arabic. A culture that I love. My book tells you all about my evolution as a very introvert boy to the man I have became today to the mission that I was given from God to help humanity through Reiki.
