The reason I am sharing this information with you is that many of you that come to me with ghost stories have also asked about Reiki. It seems to come up in conversation many times when speaking of the unexplained. One of my co-workers and Ghost Walk partners knows about and does Reiki. I am had several conversations with her about Reiki, how it works, why it works and is it safe. She states it is all about light and well being, that you learn to block any negative energies. As always, if you have questions contact a Reiki master.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

Good Luck in your search for light and truth.
It has just been brought to my attention that the EVPs on this site are not working. I will try to get them back up and running as soon as possible.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Last year one of Ghost Walk participants caught a photo of a man-spirit walking threw the library stacks. The first photo was taken from the far end of the stacks. The person that took the photo said she had seen a man walking from right to left down the back of the stacks. When we cropped the photo to the area at the end of the stacks that she described we were shocked. Many of us did in fact see what we think is the “man in a funeral coat and top hat” that has been seen previously by several patrons.
Some see this very clearly, but there are those of you that are not so sure. I am hoping by posting the photo again and by adding a tagged photo next to it the outline will be more visible. The things that you might watch for is the outline itself, the hat, the head with facial hair, the white dress shirt and black dress coat, the arm and sleeve cuff or hand (unsure).
Reports of the Man in a coat and top hat
- Young boy, about 3 years old, was in the library with his family. He stopped just in front of the Youth Services desk. He was looking down towards the back of the library. He cocked his head one way and then the other. His grandmother asked him “What are you looking at?” He replied “Oh…. man all gone.”
- Two young ladies in late middle school, possibly freshman, stopped by the Front Desk and reported that they both had seen “a man with a top hat and dark coat” towards the back of the library by the Children’s area. He was there then he was gone.
- An adult man came to the library and stopped me. He said he saw a ghost. At first I thought he was kidding, but he assured me he was not. He then relayed his story. It was about 10pm when he stopped by the library with the intent of returning his books to the book drop. As he walked in front of the glass windows at the front of the library, he saw a shape of “a man in a dark suit” walking inside the library. He said he realized it wasn’t a person but a ghost and it scared him. Next he ran to the book drop and as he did the dark dressed figure seemed to go that way also. As he opened the book drop to put the books in a gust of wind shot out of the book drop and he felt it on his face. He said he then “got the heck out of there”. He asked me if there was breeze that shoots out of the book drop and I had to tell him there is not.
