What is Reiki?
The Reiki System of Natural Healing was developed in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk. The word “rei-ki” means “spiritual energy” or “transcendent life force” in Japanese, and the Reiki System was brought to the West over 80 years ago. Increasing acceptance and use in hospitals, hospices, spas and wellness centers has made the Reiki System one of the most in-demand healing modalities in the United States and around the world. The Reiki System (1) uses non-invasive, gentle touch; (2) accelerates the body’s natural healing
processes; (3) supports mental and emotional healing; and (4) gives an overall sense of profound well-being.
Benefits of the Reiki System include: • reducing stress • strengthening the immune system • easing pain and physical discomfort • balancing and harmonizing emotions • enhancing mental clarity and creativity • facilitating personal and spiritual growth
Trained Usui Reiki Master Teacher (III)
Honoring my natural gift as a healer, I decided to blend my own working knowledge with this God given gift (in which we all have) with that of the Ancient Art of Reiki. I received my training as a Usui Reiki Master Teacher, by Master Lee Van Zyl of Reiki North East. Utilizing the sacred symbols of the attunements with my own healing abilities that I’ve always had seems to be a powerful synergy indeed! Balancing those energies of depression, addiction, erratic behavior, dull or heavy energies or even nervous energies. These malevolent energies are frequently looped instead being naturally removed from the body by way of the spinal cord. Normally the exhalation assists in the release through the feet or where the earth and body meet.
Many feel they can’t give up the negative thought process or the pain associated with it. They feel that it is their burden, so they hold on to it for various reasons. Allowing energy flow through the spine assists in the proper release of thoughts (positive or negative), pain, joy and sadness alike! We aren’t to hold on to anything. It all must be given up. Give it up to the Universe above or give the conflict to the earth below for cleansing. But give it up you must! This is an earth/sky sky/earth system with you in the middle. Erroneous thought process or fear tends to stagnate the natural energy flow. It will always move, but if it doesn’t move up or down, it becomes trapped or looped, causing chronic pain or disease overtime that stagnates in the body. Reiki assists in clearing the shushumna, or energy channel through the spinal cord, clearing the chakras along the spine. This reignites the nadis, similar to nerve endings so we can feel well again!
We all have the capacity to heal immediately, yet some energy blockages are more serious than others and may require more than one session. Depending on the seriousness or the length of time a body has blocked its energy flow, one can experience immediate relief and vitality or simply an enhanced feeling of well-being. This work is one of a cooperative nature with the Universe above, Mother Earth, myself as the energy conduit and with you, the one being healed, it is essential to come willingly with an open heart and with an open mind-NO EXPECTATIONS...just relax and simply enjoy the experience!
The basic premise of what I with the Usui Reiki System is to ground this heavier/denser energy through myself and through to the earth, for cleansing. The effect is the restoration of your original energy body! Many feel an amazing experience, and others a subtle shift, along the lines of a uniquely gentle sense of exuberance! Some never need to return and others find it necessary to enjoy periodic sessions!
