The reiki precepts

Just for today, do not anger or worry
Honor the light in all beings
Give thanks to all beings
Earn your living honestly


Below I discuss many common questions that clients have come to me with in the past who may be unfamiliar with reiki.

What is Reiki?

The word Reiki, pronounced as ray-­key, translates as “life­force” energy. It is an ancient healingpractice that originated in Japan by a gentleman by the name of Mikao Usui. It is a gentle, spiritual healing practice that brings the body, mind and spirit back to a state of equilibrium.


What happens in a typical session?

A client is fully­ clothed while laying on a reiki table or seated comfortably. The practitioner uses various hand positions on or above the physical body in a safe and respectful manner that encourages the natural flow of energy. Sessions can vary in length and the amount of hand positions used based on the needs or the client. The use of blankets, pillows, music, candles, etc.. further enhances the experience of the reiki treatment.


What are some benefits of a reiki session and who might it be good for?

After a session, many report feelings of well­being, peace, and relaxation. Reiki affects the
subtlest level of the human biofield and energy is then directed where it needs to go. It has a profound affect on the parasympathetic nervous system, thereby promoting stress ­relief and ease of pain. When the body is able to reach a state of balance, healing on multiple levels takes place. Reiki acts as a catalyst for healing in an organic and non­invasive manner.


Who may be a good candidate for reiki?

Anyone! Reiki requires no belief system, only the willingness to experience it. Due to it's gentle nature, many hospitals and hospice facilities offer reiki to patients. It can be especially beneficial to cancer patients and those undergoing intensive medical treatments. People with acute tramas such as broken bones, bruises, or other injuries can find accelerated healing from a treatment. Pregnant women and babies also welcome the peace and relaxation that reiki offers. Pets and plant life also benefit from reiki!

There is much to learn about when it comes to energy work and I invite anyone contact me with any questions.

In love and light

I am teaching Bob the minion the healing power of reiki. I fracrured my kneecap while ice skating on Christmas Eve and been calling upon reiki for healing of the bone as well as my perception of the situation.

Reiki allows us to focus our attention on healing potential while allowing for lots of rest and tender loving care. My knee feel better and better everyday and I am learning the importance of patience and surrender.

Thanks be to reiki

wow! so so many of us struggle with this. Much of our social conditioning often tells us that we need to push harder, do more, we don't quite make the cut. These are all fear-based lies though. At our truest essense, we are loved and we are lovable. We are all worthly of that which we desire and strive for. period.
