In this practical workbook, Fay Johnstone demonstrates how energy healers and Reiki practitioners can partner with plant spirit allies and the forces of nature for powerful healing for themselves, others, and our planet. She explains how to include plants and nature in your Reiki practice, both the spiritual/etheric components of plants and the physical plants themselves. She offers many practical exercises, techniques, and meditations as well as case studies and personal experiences to show how best to harness the power of plants on all levels, along with other energy flows, to support the healing process in much the same way that crystals are used as energetic healing aids. She explains how plants connect with the Reiki principles and explores plant spirit allies, chakra work, and healing with the elements of nature. She details how to enhance self-healing and Reiki treatments for others through “bringing the outside in,” creating a healing space, use of plant preparations, and other sacred forms of plant medicine.
Fay also explores how to support the healing of plants and nature itself through your Reiki/healing practice. She provides guidance on how to raise the vibration of your home and community, how to impact nature positively with regard to climate change, and how to send distance healing to the Earth, nature beings, and endangered habitats across the world. She inspires you to reach out to the vital force that flows through the natural world and open your intuition to discover guidance and support from nature. By deepening our conscious cooperation and partnership with nature and the plant kingdom, in a sacred healing way, we come to recognize that in healing ourselves, we are also healing our Earth.

“This is the book that every reiki practitioner’s bookshelf has surely been waiting for! Fay Johnstone presents us with an innovative and richly resourced manual for anyone looking to explore the synthesis of reiki and nature. Her ethos is deeply respectful of both Usui’s source reiki teachings and the abiding spirit of plants.

I was hoping the book would help me to get in contact with my local environment and learn ways to get deeper into nature. I was not disappointed.
