Traditional Japanese Reiki
REIKI is a non invasive Therapy and is used holistically to restore balance to mind body and spirit.
Sessions can be hands on or distant from a practitioner who has received a level 2 reiki attunement.
Over twenty years ago I received a level one attunement and used reiki on myself family and close friends. Several years ago I decided to repeat level one and continued onto level 2, my studies continued and I have become a Teacher/Master practitioner.
I practice and teach traditional Japanese Reiki.
Reiki translates from Japanese to Universal Light Force Energy, the life force is in everything and accessible to everyone.
History of Japanese Reiki
Reiki is first referred to in the Sanskrit writings of 2500 years ago.
The tradition was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the nineteenth century, who implemented the Usui System of Natural Healing. Dr Mikao Usui was believed to be a Christian Priest and a director of a Japanese university, who also studied at a Buddhist monastery. Following a twenty-one day meditation and fast on a holy mountain, he experienced a life-altering experience in which a light from the sky struck him on the forehead. This enabled him to enter a state of deep consciousness in which he saw the Symbols from the Sanskrit sutras, their application and mantras, and he felt a powerful healing force. Following this powerful enlightenment experience, Usui found that he could promote rapid physical healing, and he felt compelled to heal the poor in the slums of Kyoto. From this experience he developed the Reiki rules for life.
The Five Reiki Principles are as follows:
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.
People experiencing Reiki treatments have experienced numerous benefits, and Reiki’s recognition as a helpful healing therapy continues to increase.
These are some comments my clients have made following a treatment
“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.”
“I think I fell asleep.”
“I can’t believe how hot your hands got!”
“I feel more relaxed than even after a massage.”
“My headache is gone.”
“Wow that was amazing! What just happened?”
As a Reiki practitioner, I am not transferring my energy to you, but instead holding space for you to connect with the universal energy that is in us all. Your energetic body decides what is needed and where and it is your energetic body that heals itself.
What to expect
During the treatment some people might feel some energetic sensations like heat, coldness, tingling, and energy moving gently from one part of the body to another. Some people might see colors or hear things, while others feel more relaxed or feel nothing that different. All of this is completely normal.
Many people fall asleep while receiving a Reiki treatment, in which they enter a deep healing space. Some people might also experience emotional or physical release which can manifest in physical sensations, all of this is perfectly normal as the energy is clearing old attachments, emotions and physical issues.
While experiencing such sensations can lead to a natural curiosity into its meaning, this is your experience, and as a practitioner, it is not my place to diagnose what it might mean. Just know that such experiences represent a shift as your body and being takes the energy it needs for healing.
What about after the Reiki treatment?
For the rest of the day, drink plenty of water, this helps to keep you hydrated. If you can, relax and take some time out for yourself. A relaxing bath, and whatever self-care rituals you enjoy are wonderful to follow up the Reiki session.
Following the session please remember that the energy is still moving and working within you. If emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual issues arise, please know that this is completely normal and they will subside.
If you like to take note what comes up for you. Be gentle with yourself throughout the rest of your day and also the next few days as the energy settles and feel free to contact with any further questions.
Since everything is energy, we can become one with that energy and connect beyond the dimensions of space and time.
Myself and my clients who have experienced distance energy healing know that it works, and can be just as powerful as a session held in the same space. I have given and received distant healing over the years and it’s never ceased to amaze me how powerful the energy is.
Distant healing sessions will last for 30minutes. You can lie down and relax in a comfortable place (don’t be surprised if your pet decides to join you). If you don’t have time to lie down and relax you will still receive healing even if you are working or just pottering around the house.
Please note that no technology is used during distant healing reiki is sent you remotely.
