We are all born with the power to heal ourselves. Our bodies are in a constant state of maintaining balance. It is that energy within, that helps the body to repair and replace aspects of itself as needed.
And with the use of Reiki energy, we can all balance our own energy and body. And now I can help you do that!
I am a certified REIKI PRACTITIONER, and offer distant reiki sessions.
But what is reiki?
Reiki is a traditional Japanese healing system, in which a practitioner guides universal energy – reiki – into your body to help you heal on an energetic level.
Reiki helps you to feel better on an energetic level, as it dissolves energy blocks and promotes balance between mind, body and spirit.
In addition, it creates deep relaxation and helps the body to release stress and tension. It improves focus, and accelerates the body’s own ability to heal itself.
Pretty amazing, right?!
A 2007 survey shows that, in the United States (U.S.), 1.2 million adults tried Reiki or a similar therapy at least once in the previous year. Over 60 hospitals are believed to offer Reiki services to patients.
The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). Reiki is a type of energy healing.
According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Improving the flow of energy around the body, say practitioners, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
According to the University of Minnesota, patients who have undergone a Reiki session may say:
- “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.”
What is distance reiki?
I do most of my my Reiki practice via distance, and that often prompts the question: “Does distance Reiki really work?”
The answer is YES!
Please let me explain this (and how it works) a bit more.
As a Reiki practitioner I use three specific reiki symobols during sessions, and one of which is the “distance symbol.” When invoked and used by a Reiki practitioner, this symbol allows the practitioner to send healing Reiki energy across time and space.
In addition to distance reiki, this symbol can also be used in-person to help clear blockages from the past, or across large parts of the body. Similarly, it can be used to cleanse neighborhoods or geographic places. When practicing Reiki on someone who is not physically present, this symbol is used to connect to his or her energy.
We are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole. As such, invoking this specific “distance symbol” during a distance Reiki session allows the practitioner to link an object to the energy field of the recipient. I typically use the recipient’s photo to do this.
I choose to always set up a mutual time for a session, so the recipient is open to receiving the energy. However, distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time, though permission should be invoked or received.
When I first started with distance Reiki, I too was a bit skeptical. But with lots of practice, it has become easier and easier for me to create an energetic link with the person I was healing. After session, I often get feedback like “I felt my body tingling.” or “I could feel warmth moving through my body.” Others just simply report feelings of relaxation, happiness, empowerment, ease and relief from pain.
During your Reiki healing session:
Please try to have some place quiet, where you can lay down during the duration of your session (45 minutes). Although this is not required, the maximum benefits are achieved if you can be lying down somewhere quiet, free of distractions such as cell phones, children, and pets. This makes it easier for you to completely relax and release anything that no longer serves you.
If you are unable to do this, that is okay too. The healing energy will still benefit you, no matter what you are doing. You could also book a session for a time that is even when you are asleep at night, at work, etc.
I will text you before and after your session, to let you know when I am beginning and ending, so it is important to provide a mobile phone number for this purpose. After your session, I will text you to let you know when I am finished.
During your session, just let go and be open to receive the reiki energy. Try to relax and focus on releasing what no longer serves you (tension, stress, pain, etc). You can tell yourself before (or at the start of the session) something like, “I am open to receive, and ask that anything that is no longer serving me and my highest good, please be released during this session.” Other than that, please just relax and enjoy your session.
