Me and Reiki

My Reiki journey and experience has been quite interesting.

Many years ago, I had signed up to go for Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 class taught by a Master from India named Master Rohini. From what I have heard of her, she is truly a remarkable person.

However, due to work and travel circumstances, I could not attend her class and instead was replaced by my dear wife.

JJ who had already gone for level 1 and 2 had introduced me to Reiki and encouraged me to attend the classes as he was doing his refresher and becoming a Master.

Nevertheless, my dear wife benefited from Reiki and come out of it a brand new motivated and energized person.

I still did not completely understand what Reiki was about but wifey explained to me about the healing aspects of it.

Those were the days that I had severe headaches as well as severe pain in my heel or Achilles tendons and she would do Reiki on me and the pain would go away.

I thought at that time that Reiki was truly marvelous where you could just use the energy from the Universe to heal someone.

I was determined to attend the next classes offered by Master Rohini and waited and waited and waited and waited but she never returned. I was even tempted to go to India and take her class there. But in the end, we realised that her life had moved on to a higher plain and she was no longer teaching either.

Also, I had to go to Miri to work and soon Reiki was something that remained in the back burner.

Then my work brought me back to KL and my quest for finding a Reiki master began again. In a little bit of rush to do it, I settled for a master in Gombak that my friends had found and happily did Reiki 1 with Master Subramaniam Narayanan.

Master Subra has trained many people in Malaysia over the years and is a major in the army. His lineage has not been clearly defined but he has taken Reiki under different masters and also uses Karuna Reiki. Among his masters include James D'arcy, Viginia Samdal, Frank A'java Peters, Dr Sukumaran and Pandit Gopal Dass.

In level 1, which was 1.5 days, we had 4 attunements and were taught how to heal ourselves, the hand positions as well as healing others.

He insisted that we practice Reiki 1 for minimum of 21 days before he would teach us Reiki 2 and then I took Reiki 2 also under Master Subra about 5 weeks after Reiki 1.

Reiki 2 we had 2 attunements and he taught us the 3 main Usui Reiki symbols which is Chu Ku Rei, Se He Kei and Hon Sha Je Sho Nen.

He also taught us 21 Karuna Reiki symbols which he said is highly secret and cannot be shared.

Master Subra had a quite interesting but sometimes condescending style of teaching, but then again, he is a major in the army.

I enjoyed both my Reiki Levels and was hungry for more. But a year passed and I had no longer heard from Master Subra. I was later to find out that he had stopped teaching in the Gombak center due to some tenancy disputes.

Also, Master Subra was now picking students who could do Reiki 3A and Masters rather than just allowing any students to go to him.

Nevertheless, my hunger for Reiki never died and I was determined to learn Advance Reiki 3A and Reiki Master Teacher 3.

After some basic search and meeting, I decided to go from my Reiki 3A and Reiki Masters with Master Kayce Goh.

Each level was 2 days in length and was done over 2 weekends back to back.

I completed my 3A on 17 April and my Masters on 24 April.

The lineage is as follows:
Dr Mikao Usui
Mrs Hirai Doi
Mr Oki Jama
Dr Allan Sweeney
Ms Kayce Goh
Mr Nilesh Timbadia

There are people more familiar with Reiki being spread by Mrs Takata. And therefore, I show a different but longer lineage through that strand as follows:
Dr Mikao Usui
Dr Chujiro Hayashi
Mrs Hawayo Takata
Bethel Phaigh
William Rand
Dr Allan Sweeney
Ms Kayce Goh
Mr Nilesh Timbadia

Kayce was an excellent teacher and I was blessed to have had 1 on 1 classes with her for both 3A and Masters which gave me more personal teaching and further understanding of Reiki. I am truly grateful to have found such a master.

She conducts her classes with such serenity of her own home that you feel immediately comfortable and relaxed. She is willing to answer any questions and is very clear and confident when teaching.

If anyone would like for Kayce to be your master, I would highly recommend it.

I do intend to start teaching soon but in all likelihood, this will only be sometime in mid July onwards. This is mainly because I will be away for work until mid-July.

Also, as I do  not yet have a space to conduct my Reiki classes, thus, the classes are going to be held as and when there are enough students for me to rent premises elsewhere. On the other hand, I will be happy to conduct private classes in your own home as well, drop me an email if you are interested at

My Reiki journey and attunments have been interesting and from the many things I have learned including my deep connection with the soul that is I as well as my guardians and angels and God, I believe that when I do teach, I will be a good teacher as I always do things for the highest good of all people involved.

Thank you. For the highest good.
