A White Sheet of Paper

What does the subject of this article have to do with the system of Reiki? Read on and find out how the two go hand in hand.

Take a piece of white paper.


If it is blank, there is the unlimited potential to draw whatever you want.

However, if there just one dot, line or word on it the possibilities become restricted.

Therefore, it is possible to see that a white piece of paper creates unlimited possibilities; complete openness with no restrictions while the sheet with the dot, line or word creates restriction.

Moving to the system of Reiki, let’s look at a hands-on healing session. Whether we are working on ourselves or others, during a session our minds need to be like that blank white sheet of paper. In fact, the more our minds are like the white sheet of paper the more possibilities there are for healing to take place; that is complete openness without any restrictions.

As soon as you hold on to a thought like “this needs to be healed”, ”this area needs more power” or “this person needs emotional/ mental healing” then you are placing a dot, a line or a word on the piece of white paper; thus, in turn, creating limited possibilities.

Thoughts get in the way of the natural flow of the energy, creating a restricted flow of energy.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could be the best vehicle possible for energy to flow through?

You can!

Just step away from placing any dot, lines and words on your piece of white paper, and rest in an open space allowing the energy to flow.


Frans has been a major influence on global research into the system of Reiki since the early 2000s. His practical understanding of the Japanese influences on the system have allowed students around the world to connect deeply with this practise.

Students naturally respond to Frans’ warmth and intelligence. His own personal spiritual Reiki practise is a model that many students wish to emulate and offers great encouragement to those on the same path.

Frans is a co-founder of the International House of Reiki and Shibumi International Reiki Association with Bronwen Logan (Stiene). He has also co-authored with her the critically acclaimed books The Reiki Sourcebook The Japanese Art of Reiki, A-Z of Reiki Pocketbook, Reiki Techniques Card Deck and Your Reiki Treatment.

Originally from Holland, Frans is now based in Australia and since 1998 has trained in a variety of countries such as Japan, Nepal, Italy, UK and Australia. His teachers include Hyakuten Inamoto, Doi Hiroshi and Chris Marsh. Frans’ research has included interviewing Yamaguchi Chiyoko (now deceased) and other Japanese teachers including Dr Matsuoka. Frans is currently training with a Japanese Shingon priest, Takeda Hakusai Ajari (see photo left), who was once a Tendai monk as a disciple of the great Sakai Dai Ajari, learning about Shinto, Shugendo, Tendai and Shingon. Frans is also studying with Reverend Yamabushi Priest Kûban from France.
