The Reiki Principles
Reiki has been a part of my life since I was a child. Both my mother and my late grandmother achieved 'Reiki Master' status, and I grew up receiving healing sessions for whatever ailments popped up.
Over the last year, I felt an overwhelming pull towards furthering my reiki experience, and decided to follow in their footsteps and receive my reiki training as well. Once I arrived at my level one attunement and class, I knew I had made the right decision. My reiki master is a wonderful guide and teacher, and I soon went on to receive my level two attunement as well.
So, have I confused you yet? Let me back up and in an effort to give you a little more background, lets chat about what reiki is!
Reiki is a healing modality that uses energy for natural healing. To gain a little better understanding, we can break down the word reiki into two parts. First, we have "rei", which can mean divine, higher power, or the universe's flowing love and wisdom. Secondly, we have "ki", which has the same meaning as Qi or Chi (like in Qi-gong) in that it is life-force energy that inhabits all things. Combined, you have a practice that allows you to divinely channel energy to heal.
During your first attunement, you are opened up as a channel for energy so that you may do self-healing. During your second, your channel expands so that you can direct healing energy to others. During your third and final attunement, you become a master so that you may give attunements to others. When I received both my level one and level two, I felt a distinct increase of awareness and intuitive information available, and have felt it was a great step along my spiritual path.
Reiki energy is pulled to where is needs to go, so the only two ingredients you need are a reiki-attuned practitioner and their clients free-will to receive healing. If you come to a healing session, but there is a part of you that doesn't want to be healed, the energy is not going to be able to do its work until you are ready. As a reiki practitioner, you serve as a channel for divine energy, flowing through you out of your hands to whomever you are helping, therefore healing you at the same time. This type of healing work works on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. You can receive both distance and in person sessions, and they can equally helpful. For distance work, it is best to be in a quiet place whereyou can be relaxed and calm (like right before you go to sleep). In person, you can get a one-on-one discussion with your practitioner, and I personally like to incorporate other elements into the healing process, like guided meditation, crystals, and sound therapy.
I will now begin scheduling reiki healing sessions for others, both in person and distance, and I am so excited! I love being able to assist people on their path towards a healthier and happier life, and am so grateful for tools like reiki that allow me to do it! Additionally, all the crystals and items I offer in my online boutique have all received reiki treatments so that they may be energetically aligned to facilitate your highest good.
