What are Reiki Attunements About?

What are Attunements All About?
By Angie Webster

One of the most strange and mysterious things about Reiki to those first investigating it is the attunement process. Even the word “attunement” leaves a bit of mystery. It sounds like a vague and unknown thing that is impossible to wrap the mind around because there is nothing in the experience to compare it to. This can even make it seem a little scary to some. So let’s explore the attunement and bring some understanding to what it is, what it does, how it feels and what happens afterward.

An attunement is a part of the Reiki training process. It is something that only a Reiki Master is trained to do. The process can be seen as accomplishing  two things. One is to do a very intense healing on the recipient, which goes very deeply into the energy channels, opening and clearing them. This makes way for rapid healing to begin for the newly attuned Reiki practitioner. Opening and clearing these energy channels not only allows for a greater healing, it allows for the Reiki energy to flow more freely through them, so that the recipient of the attunement will now freely receive Reiki at all times, particularly when intending to receive it, and will also allow Reiki to transmit through them, flowing more easily through these energy channels.
We all have Universal Energy flowing through us and around us. It is everywhere, in fact. The Reiki attunement allows us to open up to this energy and become more aware of it than we normally are. It literally attunes us to it. When we come into the world as infants, we are much more in tune with this energy and as we become habituated to this world, we lose the awareness of it. A Reiki attunement helps us to open our awareness to it.

Most people who have a Reiki attunement, even at the first level, can feel the energy flowing through their body, their hands, and sometimes their feet right away, sometimes even as the attunement is being done. This doesn’t happen to everyone and a few only report minor sensations or none at all. They may not feel the energy flowing through them, but when they practice Reiki on another, they will be told that the energy is felt and shifts will be seen. In doing Reiki self-treatment after an attunement, even the newly attuned will feel peace, even if they don’t feel a lot of heat or other sensations coming from their hands. The perception of the sensations are somewhat different for everyone and will vary from session to session, which is normal.

During the attunement, the Reiki Master will ask you to close your eyes and become still and prayerful or meditative, looking within yourself for the meaning and symbolism of the process to you. You may be asked to focus on your breath and to notice your center. The Master will then draw symbols which represent various healing energies, such as the power of love, harmony, the Unity of All or God with us, and one that helps to dissolve the illusion of time and space. These will be drawn in your aura and on your hands. There are some slight variations aside from this in the ways that different Masters do an attunement, so these are only the basics, not the entire process. Most Masters begin and end the process with a brief prayer or intention, which may or may not be spoken aloud.

People experience various different things during an attunement and your experience will be your own. Whatever you experience is exactly what is appropriate for you at the time. Don’t get concerned about comparing with others or with what you read on the internet. Many people feel sensations of heat or tingling or of vibration rising up their spine or flowing down from the crown to the base of the spine or the feet. Some feel their hands grow hot. Many see colors or have visions. A few hear sounds such as music or bells or angelic voices. There are many possibilities. It is a rather profound and moving experience for many.

In the days after an attunement, many people have a healing response, often referred to as a healing crisis. This can last for up to two or three weeks, fluctuating in the symptoms and severity, and many teachers will teach that you should expect it to last 21 days. In truth, it varies from person to person and from one attunement to the next. Some people have no healing response at all, for some it is very mild, others are very sick for the first day or two with flu-like symptoms and then feel a lot better, with only mild emotional fluctuations for a week or two after that. For some, the healing response is almost entirely emotional, with emotions arising and releasing, maybe with crying spells or anger coming out and releasing. It may be gentle or not. It is best to simply observe and let the energies pass, journaling and processing as needed. Nearly everyone will notice that their life changes in some way after an attunement, even if it is only that their responses to things shift.

CHAKRAS TELL ALL!

 

 MANIFESTING THROUGH SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY

In the age of technology, we comprehend how a system like a computer program reacts to certain commands.  If we input the correct command we experience the positive effect.  We know we need to utilize the correct input to achieve our desired output.  We go through a specific sequence of instructions to the computer program to achieve a specific end result. Random doesn’t work!  In simple terms, if we don’t go through the correct steps, with a clear understanding of our desired outcome, it’s akin to asking a calculator to act as a dictionary.
In spiritual technology we can use this analogy to understand we have an energy program called the Chakra system.  It is our subtle energy computer that organizes our beliefs, thought patterns and experiences.  We encode it throughout our life mostly unconsciously.   If we don’t understand the coding, we won’t manifest our desired outcome.  The chakra system is our manifesting computer.

 

 Individual Chakra work:

If you would like to work one on one…here are a few options for you.  If you feel you need something “custom made”, just call and request a consultation.

 

WHAT DO YOUR CHAKRAS SHOW ME?    Kathy Duffy, Reiki Master Teacher/ Energy Field Specialist/ Intuitive           Chakras are part of the human energy field…the part of you that develops from birth (and even before) constantly downloading and processing your life experiences. Life experiences = chakra energy.   The energy that moves in your chakras broadcasts throughout your physical, mental and emotional aspects influencing them in powerful ways.  When there is a disruption in the flow within the chakra it has a very real effect on you.  A chakra can be congested, overactive, under-active, weak, blocked, exhausted. Chronically unbalanced chakra system has long term effects.  A disrupted chakra also affects your aura or energy field that surrounds and holds you.  That can weaken you and leave you vulnerable to another’s energy.  When your chakra system is balanced and flowing you will feel an immediate shift.  If you maintain a free flowing chakra system you will discover the value of connected and vital energy in all aspects of your life.

When I do an assessment of your chakra energy I tune into you and feel/sense/see your energies. I allow information to flow from that and let you know what I intuit.  The information here can tell me how to advise you in achieving your goals, whether they are physical, mental or emotional changes you want to make or perhaps how to move forward.

A Chakra Reading offers you insight and a means of understanding your own process.  It can assist your self awareness and that is always a good thing!

For more discussion about the chakra system read the post “Chakras, The Energy that Teaches”

The next step after a reading is a deep Chakra and Aura Cleanse/Balance – either immediately following your reading/assessment; at a future time; or as a single therapeutic session.  This can promote the freer flow of healthy energy and connect all your fields for optimum use as you heal and learn about yourself.

I have been working with Chakra and Aura energy for 30 years.  If you feel I can be of service to  you please contact me for an appointment.

Initial Talk Assessment/Reading:   $75- a  reading/talk session  1 1/2 hr

Deep Chakra and Aura Balancing –  The chakras and aura  respond very well to energetic clearing and balancing.   There are techniques to reach deep into the energy of the chakras to ascertain and balance for optimum results. The aura surrounds and supports the entire energy field and therefore is sensitive to disturbance from outside as well as being affected by the state of your chakra energy. Having a thorough clearing and balance in these vital energy fields is supportive, healing and a means to get or keep you on track.    This is a table session.

Deep Chakra and Aura Cleanse/Balance – as an add on in initial assessment/reading session $25   or as   Stand alone therapy $75

Voices of Reiki – Testimonials

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Kelly D.  Reiki Master Practitioner

 

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.   Steph L.  Reiki Master Practitioner

 

 

Why I get regular Reiki sessions

I would like to share my insights into the benefits of having regular and routine Reiki treatments with a Reiki practitioner.  As a I get caught up in the hustle and bustle of modern life and its demands(no one excluded here), I forgo giving myself daily treatments which I feel the effects from and then add to it by skipping a session or so with my practitioner.  This scenario occurred last fall while I was working more and planning for a vacation and the upcoming holidays, a time when all of us need more balance and centeredness!!! So while I still enjoyed the thrill of it all, my energy definitely was not optimal nor was my focus as sharp as I desired it to be.  Then comes along the after the holidays effects.  Balancing sunless, cold days of the remainder of winter, kids being cooped up indoors and normal daily task of family life, I could hear the frustration in my voice that week and so could a dear friend of mine.  I went to my Reiki session that week and when I left my appointment, I called the same dear friend who heard “tired” and “frustrated” in my voice only a few short days before, and she asked me with  an inquisitive wonder  “where have you been?”.  I answered , with a energized and zest reply…just got done with receiving my Reiki session!!! She returned with, “I could hear it in your voice”.  You better bet your boots that I make it my intention  to see my Reiki practitioner on a routine basis…a fine tuned tune up for the soul that helps to keep life more balanced!!  Stacey H. 

 

A Review from a Reiki demonstration and talk at a fibromyalgia support group:

Hi Everyone!
This month’s topic was Reiki.  Kathy Duffy and Janet Jackson of The Energy Connection in North Huntingdon were our guest speakers.  Not only did they give a very informative background on Reiki, they were also very “entertaining”.  Everyone present received a 5 minute therapy session.  No one was left out!!
Reiki is based on the idea that there is a universal energy that supports the body’s innate healing abilitities.  Practioners seek to access this energy, allowing it to flow to the body and facilitate healing.
Reiki is used for relaxation, stress reduction, and symptom relief, in efforts to improve overall health and well-being. It has been used by people with anxiety, chronic pain and other health issues.
Reiki goes into all energy in a positive way.
You really can’t talk about Reiki — YOU JUST HAVE TO EXPERIENCE IT!!!

Comments from members:

My expereince:  I felt a warm relaxing flow through my body.  I did not move my left arm nor Kathy manipulate it in any way, however it did crack!
I have a constant jagging pain in my left hip, it went away instantly (and stayed away until I tripped on Friday)  I was still amazed all day Thursday and Friday morning.  The 5 minutes just felt like MORE!  I really want to experience the full 1 – 11/2 hr session.

Elaine:  Warm flush.  Tingling. Several releases of slow wave like roll moving through my body growing to a release of relaxation.

Nancy:  Felt sensation in right arm.

Celeste: She was very stressed when she came to the meeting; felt really relaxed afterwards.

Linda:  That was a tease!  She could have sat there all night in a Reiki session.

Lynn:  She felt good for a few hours afterwards.

Kathy and Janet recommend the websites www.reiki.org and www.healthjourneys.com.
For more information on Janet and Kathy visit: www.theenergyconnection.net.
Reiki is a reccomended complimentary therapy for fibromyalgia.  I can’t wait for a full session.

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.

~Angie R.  Reiki Master Practitioner

 

 

WHY LEARN REIKI? The Benefits of Reiki

Considering a Reiki Class?

 

Having trained probably a thousand or more Reiki students over the past 22 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 testimonials 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!              Calendar of Events  View scheduled classes!

Here’s some BENEFITS OF REIKI TRAINING as expressed in Gaia Magazine

1. Attunement Process with the Universe

Reiki connects you to universal energy, thereby allowing you access to healing for yourself whenever you might need it. Plus, being plugged into the Universe means you can balance your body, mind, and spirit by spending some time each day devoted to self-healing.

2. Connection to Your Spirituality

Reiki brings you closer to your Higher Self, which is an essential part of anyone’s spirituality. The perks of being more in tune with your High Self include being more intuitive, helping you make better decisions and giving an overall feeling of wholeness as if a missing piece of your life’s puzzle has fallen into place.

3. Deep Relaxation

Happier people live longer. It’s a fact. Lowering the stress in your life is essential to keeping illnesses and ailments at bay from your body. Reiki is an excellent tool for keeping your heart and mind calm and connected to an inner peace that will be an asset in troubled times. You will gain a sense of real self-purpose and inner clarity that may have eluded you previously.

4. Health Benefits of the Body

We put natural wear and tear on our bodies on a daily basis, whether through exercise or simply walking around the office. Between that and the toxins in our environment, our bodies are in desperate need of healing. Self-healing on a physical level helps prevent sickness, whether it’s one you’ve already had or one that you may have, and aids our injuries in healing fully. There is a plethora of ailments that Reiki helps soothe, from mild back pain to even cancer, according to Reiki experts.

5. Direction for Your Life

Once again, you are more plugged into the Universe through the practice of Reiki. Therefore, you will be much closer to finding your true purpose and calling through learning Reiki, as you become reconnected with the Divine in your life. Let your mind be opened up through practicing Reiki, thus freeing up yourself and your spirit.

6. Giving Back

Ever felt like helping people, but you were totally unsure of how to go about this? Reiki extends to more than yourself in its healing. This is a gift that many would count as invaluable in their lives. Imagine helping people be free of injuries that have plagued them for years, or giving them a sense of inner peace! Giving back like this is truly its own reward.

7. Perspective

Reiki has the potential to turn your whole life around for the better if you self-Reiki every day and listen to your intuition. Life becomes a whole lot more clear, and you begin to understand what’s actually important in your life, and what is excess and unnecessary. Even things in your life like your relationships come into focus. Who is actually your friend? Who is just there for an easy ride? You’ll find out quickly when you start trying something “weird” like Reiki!

8. Emotional Healing

We all carry some kind of emotional trauma in our lives. No one’s life has been perfect. While we all accept that, we don’t all realize that we also carry the energy from these negative experiences. This trauma may be affecting us entirely, in our bodies, our hearts, and our spiritualities. Reiki can free us by helping us release the energy attached to the hardships of our past. Once this has been achieved, you are finally free to be yourself.

9. Self-Development

Reiki can change the way you deal with life and people in a way that is much healthier for you. It might not happen in a conscious manner, but it’ll quickly become apparent that when someone tries to take advantage of you. For example, you will push back, defend yourself, and demand more respect. Reiki helps you love yourself so that you can learn to love others and ask others to love you, as well.

10. “The Art of Inviting Happiness”

The founder of Reiki, Dr. Mikao Usui, described Reiki as the “art of inviting happiness.” Doesn’t that sound like something everyone could use in their lives? Often, people don’t know what happiness actually is, and seek material gains or the next promotion. But having a really, truly happy life goes far beyond that. Happiness comes from a profound understanding of the Universe and knowing your place there, which is exactly what Reiki sets out to do.

Is it Hard to Learn Reiki?

Just like anything new, learning a new modality or method of healing takes time and effort to study and learn the ins and outs of the philosophy. Luckily with Reiki, there are no special abilities needed as a prerequisite to learning the practice, the ability to use your energy for healing is latent in us all.

 

 

Why attend a certified  in-person class instead of learning through an online course?  (I’m not including “virtual” classes in this same category as with a virtual class you will have a teacher instructing and inspiring you throughout and is with you every step of the way.  Virtual classes are an adjustment because of our current world situation:  We presently offer virtual Reiki One classes)

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. 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.       

Check the calendar for the next class.  We train in all levels of Usui (traditional) Reiki, including Teacher level.

Natural Healing Method

Reiki’s Purpose:

Life energy is what we are and what everything else is made of; it is what enlivens us. When this life energy is depleted, out of harmony or altered by illness, stress or emotional imbalance, it leads to increasingly more problems. Reiki makes it possible to influence the balance of the life force energy and bring a person back to a more harmonious state. In turn, this state encourages the natural ability of the body, mind and spirit to heal, to be at peace, and to connect more fully.

Reiki is a complimentary therapy to any other allopathic (conventional) treatment and as such is increasingly being utilized in clinical and medical settings. Why? It helps the individual in all situations by introducing another dimension to their overall state of energetic balance and therefore to their state of health. Reiki is also very useful as a preventative therapy. Keeping the energy in balance is strengthening and encourages resiliency.

Regular Reiki treatment is highly beneficial and it enhances the quality of life.

All Reiki practices have this in common:

  • Reiki essentially re-balances and harmonizes the energetic flow within an organism.
  • Reiki is good for every living thing.

The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki (pronounced RayKey).

Rei can be translated to mean universal, and in a deeper sense represents Creative Consciousness or spiritual concepts. Ki is a term referring to energy. Like chi, prana, and vital life force, this refers to the energy that animates and permeates all things. Reiki therefore means universal or spiritual life force energy. What sets Reiki apart from other energy medicine techniques is its particular ability to guide the higher vibration of Creative Consciousness frequency energy. The Creative Consciousness of Reiki is the factor that allows Reiki to go into an organism and to flow where balance is most needed and appropriate. The Reiki practitioner does not diagnosis or use specific treatment plans or specialized medical knowledge. They simply facilitate opening the flow. Reiki is therefore both a method and a specific type of energy. Reiki is an action word!

What is a Reiki session?

During a session, a Certified Reiki Practitioner is trained to direct a current of life supporting Universal Life Force Energy to you through their hands. The receiver simply relaxes and allows the energy to be accepted. Even if you are skeptical, the energy will still flow to you. The practitioner will place their hands at various positions over your body and you will likely feel warmth and a deep sense of relaxation and peace as the session progresses. You will lie fully clothed on a massage table or if necessary, you can sit upright in a chair.

The length of a session is usually 50 to 60 minutes.

The Reiki experience is not easily described because each individual’s sense of Reiki energy differs. What are most consistent are a profound sense of relaxation, and a feeling of well being. Some people report pain relief; accelerated healing; lowered blood pressure; sounder sleep and the alleviation of stress symptoms. Others find spiritual comfort and emotional calm. What is most important for you to know if you are considering a treatment is that Reiki does no harm, is perfectly safe, and is not dependent upon any one specific doctrine or religious belief. It is helpful. It is comforting. It is truly a therapy that is all embracing and accepting and each individual comes away in a more balanced state of being. $60 full session.

My name is Pam and I completed my Reiki 1 and 2 classes at Energy Connection. I suffer from a condition called Restless Leg Syndrome. It was so severe that I was eventually sent to John Hopkins Medical Center. My physician informed me that the medication I was taking for the last 15+ years was making my condition worse. I had to quit taking it and go through a 10 day withdrawal period. I gave myself Reiki 2-3 times a day. It was so comforting and calming. I believe the severity of my withdrawal was lessened by Reiki. I feel very fortunate to have learned such a powerful method of healing. I love Reiki !!! I use Reiki on my massage clients and I believe we are both all the better for it. The benefits of Reiki are endless, I am always discovering new and unique ways of using it. I am looking forward to becoming a Reiki Master in the near future.

I would like to share my insights into the benefits of having regular and routine Reiki treatments with a Reiki practitioner. As a I get caught up in the hustle and bustle of modern life and its demands (no one excluded here), I forgo giving myself daily treatments which I feel the effects from and then add to it by skipping a session or so with my practitioner. This scenario occurred last fall while I was working more and planning for a vacation and the upcoming holidays, a time when all of us need more balance and centeredness!!! So while I still enjoyed the thrill of it all, my energy definitely was not optimal nor was my focus as sharp as I desired it to be. Then comes along the after the holidays effects. Balancing sunless, cold days of the remainder of winter, kids being cooped up indoors and normal daily task of family life, I could hear the frustration in my voice that week and so could a dear friend of mine.

I went to my Reiki session that week and when I left my appointment, I called the same dear friend who heard “tired” and “frustrated” in my voice only a few short days before, and she asked me with an inquisitive wonder “where have you been?”. I answered, with a energized and zest reply…just got done with receiving my Reiki session!!! She returned with, “I could hear it in your voice”. You better bet your boots that I make it my intention to see my Reiki practitioner on a routine basis…a fine-tuned tune up for the soul that helps to keep life more balanced!!
