WHY LEARN REIKI?

Considering a Reiki Class?

 

Having trained many hundreds of Reiki students over the past 17 years, I have found two common denominators in a majority of people who decide to join a class: 1.They feel drawn to express their inner desire to heal and help others. 2. They desire healing for themselves. Thankfully, Reiki fulfills each and includes both.  Check out the beautiful Reiki testimonals below.

For some, the spirituality of Reiki is of first importance, a way to expand their mystical relationship. For others, it is the practical application of Reiki that appeals to them. Reiki can be used to enhance existing training, such as massage, physical therapy, yoga, nursing, animal care – even psychological therapy. Yet by no means is Reiki’s positive influence limited to these purposes.  It doesn’t matter what your background is or how old you are, Reiki will enrich you, your workplace, your family and all your interactions. We all long to improve our life in some manner. Reiki satisfies that longing for a better existence in a big way. Call it life changing? Call it life enhancing? Yes, it is.

If you have experienced a Reiki treatment for yourself, you understand the impact of being nurtured and held in the peaceful, loving flow of Reiki energy. You know firsthand how you feel better in many ways during and after a treatment. Hopefully, in noticing the positive effects of Reiki, you understand how crucial it is to pay attention to your own self-healing. The idea of healing the self is emphasized in Reiki. One’s capacity for love flows outward. If there is not enough inner love, the sharing of love is not fully flowing. Taking care of yourself is the highest form of self-respect. That is why using Reiki for yourself is essential and why it is the main principal of Reiki. Use Reiki for yourself. Everything else evolves from there.

The elemental nature of Reiki is loving, creative and all embracing. In Reiki energy, the possibilities of healing in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects are wide open and available. Each Being is witnessed in their totality and guided toward the most natural state of equilibrium possible. Sounds wonderful, right?

One of the most common comments I receive from Reiki trained people is this: “I no longer feel helpless, I can do Reiki and know I contributed good.”  If you want to add that empowerment to your life, for yourself and others, consider Reiki. Anyone can receive Reiki! Anyone can learn Reiki!

 

Reiki, A Journey of Love

I can’t believe it has only been a little over a year since I began to learn the Reiki way of life.  That’s exactly what it is for me, a way of life.  Reiki is love in all that we do.  It lies in the truest essence of our thoughts, actions, intentions, and beings.  Before I began to study Reiki, I was unable to stop and enjoy the beauty of each present moment.  I was constantly caught up with expectations and self-criticism…Simply becoming more aware of energy has given me the knowledge and tools to dig deep within myself to discover that I am part of this beautiful universe and the more tools we have, the more we can develop into conscious beings.  Reiki is a sacred treasure that everyone deserves.  The feeling of divine love and light is incomparable.  Reiki has allowed me to feel empowered yet humble, to feel unity yet independence.  Reiki gives us the power to heal things that can limit or hinder ourselves or others.  Essentially everything that craved in my life, the Reiki path has either presented to me or led me to the door I need to unlock…I am eternally grateful for the gift of Reiki passed down to me through the sacred lineage and will carry the love and energy of Reiki always in my soul.

My Reiki Journey

It is said that a journey of a million miles begins with a single step. Reiki has been my first step in a never ending journey that my soul has begun.  I was curious about it long before I took my first class just over two years ago.  I went in with no preconceived notions and no real plan at going any further unless I felt guided to do so from deep within – and I was.  Reiki has been a gift to me in so many ways.  I find it has stripped me of my helplessness.  I can remember  times where I felt that I wanted to contribute or help someone with a situation and felt powerless to do so.  The feeling of being powerless would bring an anxiety, worry and fear.  Now I have this wonderful technique that I can call upon in those times.  I can allow myself to be that conduit and set the intention for the energy to be sent through me as a contribution to the greater good.  It’s allowed me to handle daily life in a better way…..I feel more calm and peaceful at my core.  Things that bother me don’t seem to bother me now.  I feel more faithful and aligned with positive purpose, no longer living from a place of fear.  Being able to watch the real life, real time power of Reiki healing is witnessing a miracle.

My Relationship with Reiki!

 

Before Reiki I was always just getting by.  I was filled with doubt and worry.  I never thought about my spiritual life.  I was only thinking of healing in terms of the physical body.  Now, I am only thinking about spiritual solutions.  I am so much more in touch with my intuition and when something doesn’t feel right to me, I trust it.  I used to force myself to push through situations because I thought that I had to be tough on myself or I would stay stuck.  I can see now that you have to be in the flow and it is supposed to be easy.  We are supposed to feel good, and when we don’t feel good something needs adjusting.  I am equally grateful for the times when I feel good and when I don’t feel good because they both teach me more about myself.

Reiki really helped me get through one of the hardest times in my life.  Reiki helped me process my emotions and release them.  I felt as if I had this shield that was protecting me and keeping me safe from going down a dark path.  When I would start to get attacks of anxiety I would put my hand on my chest and the anxiety would be gone in less than 5 minutes.

I now feel a strong connection with myself and everything around me.  I can feel that we all come from the same source and are made of up light. I always knew this, but now I feel connected to it.

I finally feel like I have something more than a sympathetic ear to offer someone.  I can make a difference in my life and other people’s lives.   I have a power and a strength that has been awakened.  Reiki is like a special superpower that is always protecting and guiding me.

Reiki has brought me more peace than I have ever known.   I can’t imagine my life without it.

Why attend a certified  in-person class instead of learning through an online course?

With the plethora of online classes offered these days in all areas and subjects, it might seem convenient, fast and perhaps cost efficient to take part in a Reiki online training. I mourn the impersonal nature of taking a Reiki  online course for these reasons:  1. The “learning” of Reiki is not in the technique but in the understanding of the nature of Reiki, the creativity of Reiki and all the possibilities offered in the sacred energy of giving and receiving Reiki.  These aspects are not easily conveyed in written material but are part of dynamic conversation. 2. Reiki is an invitation to explore and be inspired in our healing path.  Each individual benefits from a caring and personal interaction with a teacher who sees you as a unique seeker and honors that.  3. Being in a group of other students is truly an amazing experience.  The stories, interactions, emotional contact and close bonds formed are priceless. You have opportunities to express yourself, ask questions and be part of the energetic exchange . 4. An “attunement” is an essential segment of the Reiki healing method and you can’t really be said to be giving Reiki without it. The attunement is meant to be an initiation, a connector and igniter of the flow of Reiki Energy.  It should also be a blessing and a healing.  It is a very sacred part of what Reiki is. The ability to perform attunements is passed down from teacher to teacher in the lineage of the founder Dr. Usui. The attunement or initiation segment of Reiki is a sacred space for healing and connection and cannot be fully felt or appreciated without the presence of a teacher (one you can see and know).  In an attunement your energy field, spiritual self and physical body are recognized, blessed and connected to the flow of Reiki. Personal attention is given to each individual and each soul honored.  You are seen, felt and cared for. Because you, your fellow students and your teacher are all present in a safe and blessed space you will have a truly awesome spiritual experience. I know I would not be comfortable sitting in front of a computer all by myself trying to access such a special event ! 5. In a classroom training, you see demonstrations of treatment options and how to apply Reiki for yourself and others (even animals!). You are able to immediately practice with others, receive guidance and feedback. This is tremendously valuable in cementing your confidence and just feels great.  6. You join a community of like minded people and have someplace to go for continuing support where you can grow and deepen. Your commitment and confidence in Reiki is encouraged when you have others and your teachers to turn to.  I know  people who have tried the online route and didn’t feel confident that they could really “do” Reiki or who to ask about things that come up afterward.

Note:  You should always question your potential Reiki teachers as to their experience and qualifications.  And as importantly, you should feel comfortable and confident that you are in the right place with the right people for you. Use your feelings when seeking a Reiki class…this is a spiritual journey and could be the most important journey you take.  A journey of the heart, not the mind.

HUGG Method for Angel Healing

                                      

 

In the healing method of HUGG the elements of Grace and Angelic Harmonic Energy connect you permanently and fully to your intentions.  This newly divined healing method came as a sacred knowing to its creators Janet Jackson and Kathy Duffy.  Since beginning to work in the Field of Grace and with the assistance of the powerful Archangels, many revelations were offered and received so that we could bring this simple, sacred healing method to you.

We offer this experience to you in private sessions and/or you can learn how to do this method yourself. Many have already felt the special nature of working in grace and with the angels and report it to be an amazing transcendent healing   That is because the loving nature of blessed energy allows healing on deep levels and in every aspect of your being. HUGG reaches to a soul level that feels totally unifying and peaceful.

Learning HUGG is so accessible.  It is a life changing 3 1/2 hour class and at completion you will be connected in a sacred blessing ceremony to the method’s unique angelic frequency so you can perform it for yourself, for others, for animals.  In person, or at a distance.  It is simply presented and easily learned so anyone can do it without restriction.  A  HUGG session can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as you wish.  No special skill or prior training is needed here, simply a heart connection and a sincere intention.  

If you need a HUGG, just call and make an appointment or join one of our next instruction class

” First H.U.G.G. I experienced was done in October in a private session.  Had never heard of it before and had no idea what to expect.  Felt wonderful afterwards…much more relaxed and at peace.  I am not normally a very visual person, but that night while drifting off to sleep, I saw visions of beings in the distance with bright colored lights (sometimes flashing).  Images did not linger long- they faded in and out.  This was actually the first night in a while that I was able to sleep in my bed instead of a recliner.

I did take the H.U.G.G. class offered and it’s pretty awesome.  The HUGG symbol is very powerful..  When I raise my hands to open to God’s grace, I can feel the flow of grace coming down to me.

I have not yet used it on others but I do HUGG myself to sleep most nights and sleep much better.  Sometimes I do not even get through the entire routine before I fall asleep.  I do sense beings around me and can sometimes catch a glimpse of someone.  I have been feeling better physically and emotionally since practicing the H.U.G.G. method! ”        Barb D

 

“What I most enjoy about HUGG is the fullness of the healing energy that flows when this method is practiced. The simplicity and flexibility of its protocol make it easy to use, and the feeling that the healing energy continues flowing even when your session concludes is reassuring.”   Pam T

 

I just took the HUGG Class and it was amazing. Kathy and Janet are quite the team to teach this wonderful energy process. They both add their special touches that are perfect. From the start of this process you will feel the warmth of the  Grace of God flowing with the help of all the Archangels. The presence of pure light and love in the room creates profound peace. In my practice I have added HUGG to my Reiki treatments and receive such positive feedback. During the end of the healing Angelic Grace literally pulsates from the angels surrounding your body and whom ever  is receiving this holy modality. I really also love at the end of the session wrapping and enclosing  the client in Grace—it’s so Mothering……

In Love and big HUGG BLESSINGS.  Marcia P

Chakras – The Energy That Teaches

chakra

THE ENERGY THAT TEACHES

The human energy field called the Chakra System is an energetic processing structure with distinct purpose in our development. In classifying, coordinating and arranging all our life experiences, it offers up a template of the person we are today.

Ever wonder why you continue to feel stuck or frustrated even though you are trying? Do you sometimes feel there’s has to be a “secret” to manifestation you just haven’t found yet? Do you struggle with a stubborn chronic condition, addiction, or repeated relationship issues? Or perhaps you are simply curious about energy.

Many of our patterned or persistent difficulties can be traced back to an unbalanced flow of energy through the chakras. The word “chakra” means wheel. In the human body, there are 7 main chakras, or wheels of energy that are like data centers.   From birth to the present, our energy centers continue to download data from the social environment, family, relationships, attitudes, beliefs, and every experience of how we each are positioned in the world, our world. It follows then that we tend to act upon what is programmed into us, healthy or unhealthy as it may be. The chakras respond to long term programming but they also respond to daily input. Sometimes we feel we have it together, sometimes not so much. Say, if you have deep issues of unworthiness stemming from childhood your whole energy system uses that feeling as a cue on how to act/feel today based upon what you learned/felt at 3 yrs. old. You can see that many of our behaviors/feelings lay in the subconscious energy and the sharing of that energy information is part of the function of the chakra system.

Throughout my many years working with the chakras, I have used this system as a reference point in my own self development and also in assisting my clients in gaining an understanding of what they are made of, energetically, emotionally and physically. What I have found is that we are a sum total of all that we have experienced, even if that experience was formed before we had a choice or any perceived authority over ourselves. If you are 3 years old, you don’t have the tools to say “well, that’s not true”, therefore we download other peoples truths. This holds true for traumas, small and large. They shape what we think of the world and ourselves. Like a computer program, we sometimes need to rewrite the data base and clean up any non-beneficial viruses of thought or belief imbedded there.

I know a balanced chakra system is an invaluable asset. Because the individual chakras each need and depend on the healthy working of the whole, a flow of unimpeded energy through the system promotes awareness and repair. No doubt a chakra balance is a positive action for everyone. It has immediate results and empowers a cascading effect through the body, mind and spirit. Everyone feels better after an energetic clearing and balancing. Yet, in order to facilitate consistent forward development, a person is well served to learn more about the symbolic and developmental aspects of the chakras so they can apply this knowledge to achieve a greater level of self-healing. As the chakra is repaired through self-awareness, the flow of communicative energy is more powerful and long lasting.

Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seed, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants.  They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant.  Yet essential oils go well beyond their fragrant appeal.  Essential Oils have been used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.  Modern trends towards more holisitic approaches to self care and growing scientific validation of alternative practices are driving a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils.  Many have powerful cleansing properties that are naturally antimicrobial.  Their unique chemical structure allows them to pass directly through the skin for immediate systemic response to topical application.  And certain oils can be ingested to promote well being and aid healing from the inside out.  When you choose an essential oil it is imperative to purchase a high quality Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade that are 100% pure, natural compounds carefully extracted from plants.  They should not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities and are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residue. 

Do you want to learn more, have a personal experience with oils? – let’s get together!
