Reiki Volumes 2-5, Robert N Fueston
Just for today, I will be grateful.
I have started writing volumes (2-5) in the Reiki: Transmissions of Light series. Volumes 3-5 will be the main purpose of this ongoing Go Fund Me campaign. However, some funding here, along with the funding generated from a future Kickstarter campaign, will be used to complete Volume 2 in this series.
Volume 2 is already 90% done. The specific Kickstarter campaign link where you can pre-order Volume 2 with be forthcoming once it is ready and available.
Reiki: Transmissions of Light, Volume 2 (Subtitle: Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho: First Degree Student Compendium: Reference Guide for Lay Practitioners and Clinical Professionals) is what people have asked me for years to write - a First Degree "manual". But for me, the word, "compendium" is a more accurate description.
According to www.dictionary.com, the word “compendium” is defined as:
1. a brief treatment or account of a subject, especially an extensive subject; concise treatise: a compendium of medicine.
2. a summary, epitome, or abridgment.
While I do consider Volume 2 to be a "compendium", I estimate its length will be about 200 pages once finished. Of course no manual or book, regardless of how thoroughly it is written, can ever replace in person training with an experienced and well trained Master/Teacher who has been trained in this system. What this volume does contain is a plethora of very detailed and essential information taught in the First Degree (Shoden). Much of this information is unknown and is no longer being taught by those practicing and teaching in the Hawayo Takata lineage.
In the preface to Volume 2, I have written the historical reasons why I have finally decided to write this book and my internal struggles before finally coming to this decision.
As for volumes 3-5, the dilemma of a researcher is acquiring the money needed while not having to divulge exactly what the research is about. Why? Because some people will cling on to the idea without any research and start writing fiction. After all, why spend money and time doing research when you can write fiction and make money now? Unfortunately, this often happens.
Some of these volumes will take longer due to the nature of original research being done. ORIGINAL research is COSTLY! (Rehashing something you hear or find on the internet is not.) Translations (and travel) are costly too but what I have ALREADY discovered for these future volumes need to be looked into more when I have the time AND the funds to have more translations done.
Your donation would help support this cause.
So I am asking two things from you. One, a kind donation. And two, please share/re-post, etc. etc. etc. on social media. The second is just as important as the first. There is work to be done and I love doing it. Thank you for your help.

p.s. For those of you unfamiliar with my work and research, Reiki: Transmissions of Light: The History and System of Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho, Volume 1 is mostly about the History of the Reiki system while Volume 2 is about the System itself (First Degree/Shoden). These are complimentary in nature. (Volume 1 is available on amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0940676443 )

Thanks to your generous support I ordered 2 books for my research that I have waited years to buy. While the need for secrecy remains intact regarding my research, I can say that these books discuss methods of healing and practices that are hundreds of years old . Thank you all!!!
I am very grateful for those who have donated so far. By doing the math (if all remains constant - which is unpredictable of course - but I am ever the optimist!) I should have all the funds needed for the translation work within a year's time. Thank you! You can help by letting others know about this research project!
