Q.  What is SSR and what are its benefits?

Sekhem (pronounced "Say-kem") is an Egyptian word meaning power or might.  Sekhem is also the Egyptian equivalent of the Indian term prana and the words chi and ki as used in the Orient to denote the all-encompassing essential force that binds the universe together and is present in all life.  Sekhem is both all around us and in us.  Seichim (pronounced "Say-keem") is living light energy as well as an ancient Egyptian system of healing wisdom.  Reiki (pronounced "Ray-key") is a Japanese word meaning universal life force.  Reiki and Seichim are standalone healing systems that until recently have been taught and applied separately.

SSR is a healing matrix that is a unique integration of these three related, yet distinct, multidimensional energies.  Sekhem, Seichim and Reiki work together as a unified trinity of sacred healing energies to completely balance and harmonize a person's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.  This expands the individual's capacity to carry
more light and love and anchors and grounds the essential life force within his or her energy system.

SSR complements and enhances traditional medical interventions.  The high-frequency, vibratory light and sound energies of SSR help to activate a person's innate healing resources to support healing of acute and chronic disease as well as anxiety, fatigue, depression, stress and other symptoms that are produced by unbalanced thoughts, feelings and emotions.

SSR encompasses the understanding that conditions and symptoms found in one level of a person's energy field usually have corresponding components in one or more of the other levels.  For example, a physical symptom may have matching emotional, mental and spiritual components. As the subtle aspects of cause are addressed at these multiple levels, deeply held energetic blocks and constrictions are released, bringing the opportunity for improved health, more joy and love of living, higher levels of energy and vitality, greater creativity, increased mental clarity and focus, and improved relationships.

As the healing process advances over time, it is also common for the recipient of SSR to have the experience of a new beginning and rebirth of life together with a greater sense of meaning and purpose and an expanded awareness of self in relation to the universal whole.  Other reported benefits of SSR include deep relaxation, stress reduction,
clearing of addictive patterns, emotional stability and greater self-esteem.  SSR can also assist a person in finding his or her soul purpose, and in enhancing communication with his or her spirit guides, angels, the ascended masters and the Source of ALL LOVE.  The positive effects of SSR are cumulative and will carry forward from session to session, building momentum as an individual moves through the healing process.

SSR is an energy system that encompasses the full spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies available from the Source of ALL LOVE.  Each of its three components plays a specific role that when combined with the others creates a unique synergy.  Reiki anchors and grounds the healing vortex of the universal life force in the physical and subtle bodies and into the Earth.  Reiki also assists in the early stages of opening the doorway or portal to accessing the many levels of one's higher nature.  Where Reiki leaves off in this latter function, the multidimensional living light energy of Seichim takes over.  Seichim dissolves barriers to the higher self, activates and strengthens the
light body and opens and enhances one's connection to his or her angelic guides, the ascended masters and the Source of ALL LOVE.

As the energies of Heaven and Earth come together to spiral, dance and become One within the heart, Sekhem balances and merges the physical and subtle bodies, unifying all polarities including masculine and feminine.  The lotus blossom of the unified heart chakra bursts open and unfolds, bringing forth the eternal golden blue-white flame of what some call the indwelling Christ Consciousness and the I Am Presence.  Thus, SSR is a trinity, defined by J.C. Cooper in An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Traditional Symbols as a unity; a three-in-one and a one-in-three that creates unity in diversity, with the third (Sekhem) uniting the opposites (Reiki and Seichim).

At the expansive level of the Source of ALL LOVE, all that exists is fully united in the One, including each of the components of SSR.  In this realm of being, there is no duality or separation from the Creator -- no Heaven and Earth, masculine and feminine, dark and light, or love and fear.  This is the true nature of the Sekhem energy – total oneness,
harmony, peace and unification.  It is this enlightened state of consciousness, health and well being in which we are seeking to live.

At this stage of humanity's evolution, most people are not clear enough to handle this high level of energy without causing major distress in the circuitry of the human energy system.  For this reason, the electromagnetic frequencies of Sekhem adjust themselves by stepping down their "voltage" to meet us where we are, which for the time being
includes duality consciousness.  Thus, the vibrational frequencies of Reiki meet us at the foundational level of our physical or Earth existence, then flow into Seichim, which helps us open to and connect with our divine or Heavenly  nature and the infinite multidimensional frequencies available from the Source of ALL LOVE.

Under the guidance of the recipient's higher self, just the right amount of pure Sekhem energy then flows into the "high octane" blend of SSR,  facilitating the growth, integration, elevation and balancing of all levels of the individual's being.  Another key component of this process is the building and widening of the central light column, which
is a person's direct line to the Source of ALL LOVE as well as the mechanism for grounding the SSR energy stream into the cellular memory of the physical body and the Earth.

As the physical and subtle bodies of the human auric field begin to merge, a force field is created around the person that gradually allows the acceptance of greater and greater amounts of universal light frequencies without overwhelming the person's energy structure.  This process in turn prepares the way for the oversoul to descend and live in
the physical body.  The oversoul is that already-perfected part of a person's consciousness that exists on the plane of universal love and wisdom.  In this way, the SSR healing matrix assists the entire energy structure in becoming centered in and attuned to the unified heart chakra.

Q. What is an SSR energy session like?

An SSR energy session may be given in person or through distance healing.  The electromagnetic vibrational energy of SSR is transferred through the practitioner's hands with the hands placed on or above the physical body.   The practitioner is a conduit of the SSR energy matrix,  receiving and transferring it on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  The practitioner often uses one or more of the SSR sacred symbols, which allow the energy to come forward in a focused manner and open access to the high vibratory love frequencies of SSR.

The practitioner works in partnership with the recipient's conscious intent, higher self, angelic guides and the universal Source of ALL LOVE.  The amount of energy received and integrated by the individual will be exactly that which will best serve his or her highest good at that particular moment in time.  More information about SSR energy
sessions is included in the section entitled Elements of an Energy Session.

Q.  How do I become an SSR Practioner and Master Teacher?

SSR divine light classes and attunements are available to all who desire to connect with this universal energy stream to become a practitioner and master teacher or for personal healing.  Each attunement is a heart initiation that further awakens, illuminates and
accelerates your soul journey and the divine plan carried within the heart as your soul purpose and blueprint.  The result is more love, happiness, joy and peace, which you then extend to others.

(for beginners as well as those trained in any or all of the Reiki degrees, up to and including Reiki Master): Eleven sacred symbols are provided, including the Reiki Master, Seichim Master and SSR Master symbols.  These powerful multidimensional symbols open the central light channel, grounding you to the heart of the Earth and the Source of ALL LOVE.  Your ability to access your soul purpose and balance and integrate all the levels of your being is also enhanced.  The class also includes those elements of SSR not covered in any prior Reiki training you may have had as well as instruction in how to give SSR attunements.  The person who completes this initiation may give attunements for SSR Facets I-VII and all degrees of Reiki and teach classes.

Q.  Are there updated SSR attunements available even if I am already an SSR Master?

If you have already received the SSR Master attunement in the past, consider having an updated attunement, as today you are a very different person who is ready to receive more.  Additional "downloads" of expanded frequencies are happening more frequently, making an expanded range of healing frequencies from this infinite energy stream available on an ongoing basis.  Having a "tune-up" attunement can not only bring you "up to date," it can also help to further accelerate your spiritual growth and development.

If you received your original SSR attunements from me, the cost of an updated attunement is $175.  If you received your SSR attunements from another teacher, please be in contact with me to discuss your particular situation.  These updated attunements can be done in person or at a distance.

Q.  The following are a grouping of related comments and questions I have received since my book, "All Love: A Guidebook for Healing with Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki and SKHM" has been out.   The situations that are being asked about are along the following lines: (1) While reading your book, I believe I have experienced one or more spontaneous initiations; (2) I have been giving myself self-attunements using the information provided in the book; (3) My friends and I have been giving each other SSR attunements as described in your book; (4) and other similar comments.

All of these comments have led their writers to ask one or more of the following related questions: Since I feel I am already working with the energy of SSR, do I need to have the attunements for SSR from a teacher who has also received the attunements? May I call myself an SSR master teacher without having the attunements from a teacher who has also had the attunements? Under these circumstances, will you certify me as an SSR teacher?

Let me begin by agreeing that certainly we do receive spontaneous initiations and also further the process through self-attunements and other personal work with the energies.  However, it is also my feeling that this does not necessary replace receiving attunements from others who have received attunements from a certified teacher.  Though initiations from Spirit are happening to people more and more frequently, sometimes Spirit also needs a grounding rod in the form of a human being who has worked extensively with the energies to more effectively bring them through to the recipient, as well as to teach the recipient more about the process.

All of the above are valid ways of tapping into the universal frequencies.  I also believe there will come a point sometime in the future (and perhaps in the not too distant future) when the need for attunements will become a thing of the past, yet in the meantime, most, if not all, people can highly benefit from them as they can bring definite accelerations of your spiritual development, and often provide tremendous help with the next stages of clearing and healing that you may be going through.

Please consider the possibility that just because you are a "channel" of universal frequencies, this does not necessarily mean that you have fully grounded them within yourself or that you are a totally clear channel at this point in time.  As such, though I am the "creator" of SSR and did the initial channeling of these frequencies (adding to the work of others before me), I regularly personally work with the energies (such as with self-attunements and using the SKHM meditations found in the book), often receive spontaneous initiations from Spirit, AND ALSO EXCHANGE SSR ATTUNEMENTS ON AN ON-GOING BASIS WITH OTHER SSR TEACHER(S) to further clear my channel and to share the various expansions we have each received.  This is because the energy is infinite, and my capacity, though growing steadily, is surely not at infinity as of yet, and as a work-in-process, I still have more openings to go! This statement is true for all of us.  Finally, the 7 facets described in the book are only the beginning, with much more in store for us to come!

You are your own guide as to what is appropriate for you, and I am not going to try and convince anyone that you "need" an SSR attunement. However, I feel that calling yourself an SSR master without having had the attunement(s) from a certified teacher is inappropriate and out of integrity if you allow others you work with as clients and students to believe that you have had them when you have not, and because currently, SSR (as described in All Love) is set up and is known and advertised by certified teachers as attunement-based.   

Yet I am not anyone's keeper on this matter, nor do I wish or intend to be, and so I leave this to each person's guidance and conscience.  I support everyone working with this infinite energy stream to take it in and work with it in your own unique way, yet understandably can not and will not officially endorse or certify anyone that I have not worked with personally.

I also refer you to the entire section of All Love entitled "Important Note to the Reader" found in the front matter on page xxii, especially the last paragraph for further clarification of these questions.


Q.  How can I bring SSR to my area?

I will travel to your area to teach SSR classes as well as for private healing sessions.  Please be in touch to discuss the details of such an arrangement.
