Understanding Reiki

It is always interesting and fun to share with people that I practice Reiki. In my experience, not many people are familiar with Reiki like they are with a practice such as yoga. Those who are interested in learning about Reiki often ask me to describe Reiki in one word. However, the experience of Reiki cannot be defined or conveyed by a single word, as each Reiki session will prove to be unique to the individual.

What is Reiki

In short, Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. That being said, if your energy is unbalanced, low or depleted, you can be susceptible to fatigue, stress, illness or all of the above. On the other hand, if your energy is balanced and functioning at an optimal level, you will most likely be mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually balanced and healthy.

What to Expect During a Reiki Session

In my practice, I have had many clients share similar feelings and experiences. Including feeling very relaxed, lighter, calmer, more peaceful, and centered. There are also instances when a significant shift has taken place- a healing that is both profound and apparent not only to the client but to me as the practitioner. None the less, I am always humbled and grateful for being attuned to this sacred practice and sharing it with others.

Why I am Grateful for Reiki

Reiki is one of many practices that has proved to be vital to my own journey of growth and transformation. Combined with Yoga and meditation, Reiki has helped me connect more deeply with the Universal life force energy that surrounds and connects us all. I am grateful for Reiki because it has helped me address my own physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual imbalances and I know in my heart that it will help you do the same, as I have witnessed firsthand how Reiki has benefited my clients, family and friends. What are the benefits of Reiki?

Benefits Include:

Relaxation
Reduced Anxiety
Relief of Pain
Release Blocked/Suppressed Feelings
Clearing of Toxins
Natural Self-Healing
Enhanced Well Being
Stronger Self Esteem
Improved Sleep
Improved Digestion
Accelerated Surgery Recovery
Greater Sense of Self Awareness
Greater Ease and Satisfaction in Relationships
Heightened Sense of Intuition

In a world where daily life can sometimes present us with the challenge of finding and maintaining balance, who wouldn’t want to integrate a simple practice into their daily routine to promote greater relaxation, balance, and peace?

    What really is Reiki

    Yes Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
    With that being said, that is not what Reiki realy is.
    Simply stated it is; Symbols or mantras placed into key Energy centres within a persons Psychic/Emotional Body in a particular sequence and sealed.
    This is the process that facilitates the opening of a healing Channel that will expand with use.
    What this process means is that for the rest of your physical life your selected energy centres function at a much higher level and if your energy is unbalanced, low or depleted, and you can be susceptible to fatigue, stress, illness or all of the above your higher level of energy becomes balanced and functioning at a higher optimal level, you will be more mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually balanced and healthy.
