Healing With Reiki

Reiki is a gentle and effective complimentary therapy. Translated from the Japanese, Rei means “universal”. Ki  translated is “life force”. Traditional Chinese Medicine refers  to this universal life force as “Chi” In Yoga, it is called “Prana”. In the West, this force has been refered to as “Manna”” or “The Holy Spirit”. Reiki transmutes universal life force energy through the healer to the client. Although the teachings and principals of Reiki are deeply rooted in Buddhism. Reiki is not a religion. Mikao Usui  developed Reiki to be used by people of all faiths. Read more in the  following link below features an article about Mikado Usui.

The Life And Times Of Mikao Usui

When the flow of life force energy within the body becomes stagnant or blocked, disease manifests. Reiki is an effective tool for clearing  energy blockages on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. The human aura is composed of seven  layers  – Each of these layers corresponds to one of the seven Chakras. Each one of the seven Chakras corresponds to a gland within the endocrine system This demonstrates the flow of Reiki from the etheric fields to the physical body.  To clear and heal  blockages in the human auric field, a Reiki session may be essential.

Reiki may be performed on a massage table using the traditional sequence of hand placements positions.  Additional  energy work on the auric field  or the Chakras may be  required.  A Reiki Practitioner may also use Reiki healing crystals to amplify or adjust energy flow during the session. I have three  quartz crystals, and two amethyst crystals I use during  Reiki sessions. Reiki symbols are important tool in Reiki. The symbols may be used for emotional balance, clearing energy blockages, or to build vitality.   Each experience during a Reiki session unique to the Client. Sensations and responses observed will vary according to the Client’s healing process. Typical reactions could include feeling hot, or feeling cold, or feeling light headed. As a session concludes, it is important to assist the Client into a sitting position slowly and carefully.   The Client must be grounded into the physical body before standing up.  A classic session usually lasts one hour. Reiki is an effective tool in promoting relaxation. To combat stress and anxiety, consider a  Reiki. session. Pictured below, find a link to Louise L Hay’s classic guide to metaphysical healing. I keep a copy of this book close at hand. Her research and suggestions are priceless.

Reiki may also be used to clear rooms, homes, buildings, and properties of negative energy. In Reiki, distance healing is an option. Distance healing  includes working with the element of time – the past, the present, and the future. This is an excellent strategy for  dealing with past childhood trauma or heartache. Planning for the future is another way to utilize long distance Reiki energy. Many traumatic issues may be addressed in this manner.    If You are interested in Reiki,  be sure to read more in the following article belowalberta center for peace and meditation 003

The Wisdom And Teachings Of Reiki

The Value Of Self Love

Love is a healing force. We may not be able to see love with our eyes, but often feel the vibration of love as it descends. Love in action is indeed a force to behold. Unconditional love is a builder of miracles. It is My view that love resides within us, waiting to be released and shared. We block love when We allow fear, anger and judgement to prevail in Our  thinking. We choose not to trust or believe in the good around us.  Family traditions may create or break a person’s self esteem The school yard is often full of bullies. Sophisticated and jaded friends may feel love is a  sham. Popular culture often distorts the value of a positive self image. Is it  any wonder We feel We need to search for love out side of the self.

Where there is love there is hope. Where there is love there is a flicker of light ready to ignite into an explosion of joy. We seek love outside of Ourselves,  We chase it like an escaped  bird in flight.  However love is built from within. Remove the barriers You have built, one by one. This is an important process. Take time to unravel any baggage wrapped around the body, mind and spirit..  As You seek answers for Yourself, consider the following book  You Can Heal Your Life . written  by  the great metaphysical healer, author and publisher, Lousie L Hay.  I have found this book to be  very valuable resource. I often keep an extra copy of this book to share with a friend or a client.



As an empath, I feel energy and thought forms of people around Me. I have discovered  and studied many ways to create a protective energy field around me. Because of this I am able to feel vibrations of love and peace around me. I often clear the energy in My treatment room or home using Reiki. There are many ways to clear heavy stagnant energy in a room. Physically cleaning the room is a good strategy. I like to do this using natural cleaning products.  After this is accomplished, open the window to let in some fresh air.


You Can Heal Your Life COMPANION BOOK

In all of Her work, Louise L. Hay emphasised the importance of self love and self acceptance. This is something We all need to consider. Self love is not an egotistical indulgence. If love is to grow from within, self love is a seed planted in Our hearts. Love requires nourishment to grow and flourish. This requires practice, patience and persistence as We weed out the influence of the negative ego, along with any other negative programming. As You start this journey You may feel as though You are meeting Your true self for the very first time.  As You untangle emotional traumas,  You may  feel lighter and happier.The workbook pictured above is an excellent resource for accomplishing this. Self discovery is a valuable and wonderful journey.

Make a long list of all the people, places, and things You love. Take time out to create this list. After You have finished, set it aside in a heart shaped box. . The first time I created such a  list, I was surprised at how happy I felt as I completed this process. I felt fantastic because I was focusing on activities and things I loved. Each week take time out to review this  list.

The Quartz Path Roses

Everyone hopes and yearns  for love. The solution to this is very  simple. To experience more love in Your life, become a more loving person. Make love and compassion a daily process.  Give up sarcasm. gossip. and complaining. See the best qualities in every person Focus on solutions instead of problems. Find love from within. Share this love. Too many people build walls and obstacles with judgement and fear. Let go of grudges and learn to forgive people.

Emotional issues related to the heart include jealousy. Contrary to popular belief, jealousy is not an indication of love.  It is a sign of low self esteem. True love builds from within, and expands outward. The heart is the main component of the circulatory system. Cultivate habits to promote heart health. Heart disease may result with the introduction of  stress into a person’s life. Connect with others. Isolation builds fear into unseen monster.  Support a cause You believe in. Volunteers literally demonstrate the power of  ” love in action “.

The heart chakra is an energy vortex located  throughout the cardio plexus area of the body. The sanskrit name  for the heart chakra is Anahata. The seed sound is “Yam”.
