Why I love Reiki


I will always be thankful for the beautiful energy of Reiki and all of the many ways it has touched my life.

Reiki has given me faith in my divine essence, showing me the light I cultivate within.

Being attuned to the energy symbols has allowed me to open back up to my intuitive senses, allowing a conscious stream of energy and love to flow through me.

Learning about Reiki has allowed me to develop a deeper sense of compassion for myself and others.

Quantum Leaps: How Reiki Works


I have always been fascinated by distance Reiki. When I first learned about energy healing, I read stories about people being healed through sessions where the practitioner and the client were in different places, sometimes even different cities or countries. The effect of those Reiki sessions was just as powerful and profound as when they were done in person. Now that I am a Reiki Master, I have personally experienced and witnessed amazing changes in distance Reiki Sessions.

As a practitioner, I don’t do anything differently when I do a distance session compared to an in-person session, except I am visualizing putting my hands on the person and we are chatting on the phone. It is fascinating to my science brain.

A drop of gratitude nets the ocean


Affirmations are powerful. They are palpable vibrations that immediately begin shifting matter.

Speak them aloud and you actually create form. Sound waves compressing and decompressing the air in front of your lips. The vibrations of vocal cords, nasal cavities, and even bone and brain. This is profound sound healing.

Intention is the Force that moves Energy


Everything that you have, accomplish, own, or do, begins with an intention. Whether it is aloud, or not, whether it is known or not, whether it is a conscious choice or a subconscious one, intention is the force that moves energy.
The goal of most self development work, and Reiki is no exception, is to begin to make deliberate conscious choices in every aspect of our lives. To choose what we focus our thoughts and feelings on is our true power. Much of our day to day lives are driven by instinctual behaviour and habitual thoughts. We respond without thinking and think without reason, we reason without intuition, and we cloud our deep intuitive impulses with numbing behaviours that drown out the very loud, very persistent calling of our souls.
Intention quote
Or, at least, that is what can happen if we do not spend the time to turn inward toward your Inner Being or Higher Self, your soul, if you will. Turning inward can be as simple as taking a deep breath; a few moments of meditation in a busy day; a stroll in nature; a gaze and the moon and stars in wonder of the mystery.
Quiet times like these are when your deep intuitive voice, your soul’s voice, can be heard the clearest. That wise voice gives you insight, understanding and context to your current life situation. It can provide the wise guidance you need to set an intention that is in your highest and best good.

 

Reiki can help this process of turning inward and focusing on your soul’s voice. As soon as you set your intention, the energy begins.
