Q. What is SSR and what are its
(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
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
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
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
harmony, peace and unification. It is this enlightened state
of consciousness, health and well being in which we are seeking to
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?
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
sessions is included in the section entitled Elements of an Energy
Q. How do I become an SSR Practioner
and Master Teacher?
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.
SSR FACETS I-VII COMBINED
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.
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.
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
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.
How can I bring SSR to my area?
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.
