Reiki, what to expect and how it can help

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It's done by placing the hands on or near specific points of your body, such as the head, chest, back, and feet.
The word Reiki means universal life-force energy. Practitioners believe this life force vibrates at an extremely high frequency--the same frequency emitted from the sun and stars. And while there are many different types of spiritual practices in Japan, Reiki is not considered to be religious in nature so it can be practiced by anyone regardless of their beliefs (even those who don't believe in anything).

Reiki is a form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. It emerged in Japan centuries ago and has gained more popularity recently, used by people all over the world for different reasons.

What you can expect in a Reiki Healing Session

A practitioner will use their hands or other body parts with intent on transferring universal life force from them into others: patients usually lie down during this process while practitioners hold their palms about an inch away from the patient's skin so that they can feel where any problem areas are located which may be draining energy reserves elsewhere throughout your being-mind, soul, emotions etc., then these same points are pressed gently but firmly until you sense relief there too. The type most often practiced in America today originated within Buddhist culture; some say it was revealed to restore balance between Yin and Yang. 

According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or emotional pain. In time these blocks of energy can cause illness. Energy medicine aims to help improve and remove these stagnant areas of negative energies so that healing may take place without any obstruction from an outside source .

The healer's hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body. If there is a particular injury, such as a burn, they may hold their hand just above it and while doing this he or she might feel heat from his/her hands onto that area which signifies healing has been taking place during those times when one feels tingly sensations in both palms.

As a Reiki Practitioner I am not aware of how other healers work and I rely and trust on my own intuition. I listen to the my body, sometimes I can feel a pain or tightness show up in my body and this shows me that I need to look at that area of my patient. I also hear phrases, in my own voice but it may be a word or a sentence or even a message saying tell them..... and a lot of the time I sense things as a knowing. I can feel the emotions of the person and sometimes find myself in tears. ⁠

I feel heat in areas that might be blocked or have something I need to focus on. Not one session is ever the same. ⁠

Sometimes the patient may have an angel with them, or a loved one. I don't see them as a physical being, sometimes I do, but mostly I can feel and sense their presence. ⁠

I can be blown away at what comes in at times and sometimes I feel that it might not mean anything but when I mention it to the patient it is usually something very meaningful to them. So I always let them know what came through and trust the messages I receive.

How can Reiki help you ?

Reiki is a good way to reduce pain, anxiety and fatigue. Reiki is a powerful healing tool which can help you deal with negative life force energy emotions such as anger, jealousy, guilt, insecurity and resentment. It's not uncommon for people to feel depression due to heavy burdens from their mind or soul but Reiki can help to alleviate those feelings of the blues in no time! 

Reiki is the perfect therapy for anyone who seeks peace.

Reiki can also not only be offered as a hands on practice it is also very powerful through distance. 

The distance symbol is used to cross any distance in time or space. It allows practitioners to clear blockages from someone's past, as well as perform reiki on someone who isn't physically present. Distance Reiki works according the an ancient principle called the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which holds that we are all connected because we're made up of energy and part a larger whole. Calling upon this law within your mind will help you make changes for good deeds when it comes to healing practices.

Distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time—though permission should be invoked or received in some way. When I'm performing reiki on someone who is not present, it's as easy as directing thoughts and energy to that person.
