Reiki: Energy Awareness to Enhance your Life
Reiki services may be added to your coaching service or on it’s own. Call me for availability and pricing.
Reiki is a Japanese term translated to mean Universal life force energy. Specifically, Reiki is a method of working with Universal life force energy. Energy is invisible. We cannot see it but we can feel it when we begin to notice it. Universal means it is everywhere. Intuitively it was discovered by a Japanese monk-Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. It has become known worldwide as Reiki. The founder of Reiki was Japanese, and his method was first practiced in Japan. However, Universal life force energy is just that, Universal; and the practice of Reiki or energy awareness is a human practice. Having an awareness of life force energy along with a method of connecting to it, is what Reiki is all about. Reiki encourages balance and heals all levels of the mind, body and spirit. It works in harmony with any and all kinds of treatment, especially emotional blockages and trauma, pre and post-operative surgery patients,cancer patients and palliative care patients. Enjoy Reiki healing as an added component to your coaching service.
What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese term that means Universal Spiritually guided life force energy. This energy is found in and around all living things. Energy is not only found in living things, it is found everywhere and everything has an energy field. There are sound waves, light waves, radio waves and microwaves all around us. Researchers have mastered technology to utilize energy in ways to study brain activity such as an fMRI, to study the structure of the brain such as an MRI and X-Ray which studies the skeletal structure of the human form. Radiation and ultrasound is energy used to heal the body.
Anyone can do Reiki. It is a natural, non-invasive approach of using this life force energy to heal that works with the body’s own rhythm via the gentle touch of the Reiki practitioner. The human energy system is made up of seven layers; the auric layers which are created by conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings; the chakras which transforms subtle energy into levels of frequencies; the meridians and acupoints which are pathways which energy flows within the physical body; the reflex zones where energy flows from the feet to the entire nervous system via the spinal cord; the endocrine system which chemically controls hormones and glands; the cerebrospinal fluid system which is central to the functioning of the central nervous system and affects everything in our physical body; and DNA whose biological role is the long term storage of genetic information. The Reiki practitioner channels Reiki spiritually guided life force energy into these fields.
What are the Reiki Ideals, Principles, or Affirmations?
The ideals are the Golden Rules of Reiki. They were taught by Dr.Usui who discovered Reiki in the early 1900’s and reflect the Reiki way of living which is the secret art of inviting happiness to one’s self and to humanity!!

- Discipline: Just for today, I will do my work honestly
- Love: Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing

How does it work?
The gentle healing art of Reiki brings peace and balance to all levels of the body, mind and spirit. This powerful energy technique creates deep relaxation, reduces stress, eases anxiety, and accelerates the body’s ability to recover from any trauma. Reiki restores harmony and enhances the natural power of the body to heal itself in order to create a balance of health and wellbeing. Reiki energy has a certain frequency and the Reiki practitioner is attuned to this frequency. The practitioner is then able to become a channel for this energy in order for an individual to receive the energy. How cool is that?! Reiki can never do harm, only good, and it is divinely guided.

How is a Reiki session given?
Reiki sessions are administered through gentle touch and are non-invasive. The individual lies on a padded table, fully clothed, in a room with soft lighting and meditative music. Reiki hands are placed in the aura and on various parts of the body. The Reiki hands of the practitioner are sensitive to energy blockages or imbalances within the body when Reiki is flowing, and our life force energy (Ki) is stimulated. Reiki can then work on restoring and bringing harmony and balance to the body’s natural rhythm and flow by moving blocked or imbalanced energy.
What does Reiki feel like?
Reiki feels like a wondrous luminescence that flows through and around the body. Reiki enhances the natural power of the body to heal itself and compliments, supports and enhances all medical and health treatments. As with other holistic therapies, Reiki treats the individual as a whole in mind, body and spirit.
