Welcome, dear readers, to a captivating journey into the world of Reiki, an ancient healing practice that’s been around since the 1880’s, it transcends conventional boundaries. As a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher and an Angel Reiki Master/Teacher, I teach Reiki to so many students, year on year, this year it seems to be particularly popular, it’s for this reason that I’m excited to share with you the profound wisdom and versatile applications of this transformative energy therapy.
Understanding Reiki’s Essence:
At its core, Reiki is a gentle yet powerful healing modality that originated in Japan. The word “Reiki” can be translated as “universal life force energy” (rei meaning universal, and ki representing life force energy). This practice operates on the belief that life force energy flows through all living beings, and disruptions in this energy can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances. Remember we’re all energy, everything is energy, which includes your thoughts.
How Reiki Works:
The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for the universal life force energy. During a Reiki session, the recipient remains fully clothed and lies comfortably on a massage table or sits in a chair. The practitioner places their hands gently on or above specific areas of the recipient’s body, allowing the energy to flow through them and into the recipient.
Reiki energy intuitively travels to the areas where it is most needed, helping to clear blockages, restore balance, and stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. It promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and encourages holistic well-being. The experience is often described as soothing, warm, and peaceful.
Expanding the Horizons of Reiki:
Beyond the traditional Reiki session, this versatile healing practice extends its reach into various aspects of our lives. Let’s explore some remarkable uses of Reiki beyond the boundaries of a typical session.
Many of my students decide to learn Reiki because they want to give it to their children, especially if their children have neurodivergent conditions such as:
- ASD, ADHD & ADD
- Tourette’s Syndrome
Self-Healing and Self-Care:
Reiki empowers individuals to become active participants in their own healing journey. By learning and practising Reiki techniques, you can tap into its energy whenever you need it. Regular self-Reiki can alleviate stress, promote emotional well-being, and enhance self-awareness, it also improves sleep.
Enhancing Other Therapies:
Reiki beautifully complements other holistic therapies and conventional medical treatments. Its calming influence can enhance the effectiveness of therapies such as massage, acupuncture, counselling, and more. By incorporating Reiki into your existing practices, you can create a harmonious blend of modalities that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit. I have students who use it within a reflexology session or after giving a tarot reading, or during a facial, I use it within my hypnotherapy & NLP sessions to boost the healing for the issue we have worked on. The NHS use it within hospitals to help cancer patients as do some hospices so they can relieve the suffering of those who are end of life.
Animal and Plant Healing:
Reiki’s healing potential extends beyond human beings. Animals, whether domestic or wild, can benefit from the soothing and balancing effects of Reiki, many of my students train in Reiki to help their pets, I also have students who specialise in equestrian healing, work in animal shelters or sanctuaries etc. It can help alleviate anxiety, promote recovery from illness or injury, and strengthen the bond between humans and animals. Reiki can also be directed towards plants, supporting their growth and vitality which is perfect if you grow your own vegetables or herbs.
Cleansing Spaces and Objects:
Reiki energy can be channelled to clear stagnant or negative energy from physical spaces, such as homes or workplaces, if I am going to a client I will often send Reiki ahead of time to cleanse the space but I also use it for spaces where I hold workshops or events. By utilising specific Reiki symbols and intentions, practitioners can infuse spaces with positive energy, enhancing harmony and creating a serene environment. Additionally, Reiki can be used to cleanse and charge objects such as crystals, jewellery, and everyday items, imbuing them with healing vibrations., I even have students who’ve used it on their car battery!
Medication & Supplements:
I have students who make or sell beauty products or skincare products, they put Reiki in the product to boost it’s effectiveness, there is a need to be careful here though, you would not want to make insulin more powerful for instance! Always check with a Dr or specialist if you plan to do this. Vitamins tend to be fine as the body eliminates whatever it doesn’t need, however I’d still recommend you check with a health professional before boosting their properties.
Messages From Beyond: Many Reiki practitioners discover that whilst in the altered state of giving Reiki, they become aware of messages from Heaven/Spirit whether that’s from the Angels, family members of the Reiki recipient or the Spirit Guides of the Reiki practitioner, it isn’t always appropriate to pass these messages on, however, being aware of Spirit & being able to develop spiritually is a reason why many people pursue a Reiki qualification.
There have been times when I’ve been shown information about my client’s past lives, the journey of their soul & those events where healing needs to go so the person can heal in their life now.
Soul Retrieval: I’ve also used Reiki for the process known as ‘Soul Retrieval’ which is where a soul is unaware they’ve passed away and they need help to pass to Heaven or Spirit as I call it. I’ve also used Reiki to do house clearances where there is spirit activity that the resident is finding troublesome.
Grounding: One of the basic principles of all spiritual work is to be ‘grounded’ which means they are energetically tethered to the earth, but we often need to be grounded after something particularly exciting or shocking, hence why we use phrases such as ‘coming back down to earth with a bump’ or talk about people being grounded even though they’re famous etc. Reiki can be used to ground you during and after a plane trip which helps alleviate the jetlag & helps you to feel connected to the earth energy again.
One of the most intriguing aspects of Reiki is its ability to transcend physical limitations. Through the practice of distance healing, Reiki energy can be sent across time and space to individuals, situations, or events that are not physically present. As always you will need the permission of the recipient either from them directly or their Higher Self. This method allows practitioners to extend their healing intentions and energies to those in need, regardless of location.
It’s a great way to send positive energy to a job interview that’s coming up or maybe a 1-2-1 with your boss! If you have to give a talk or a presentation, Reiki can be sent ahead so it goes well. Maybe you or a loved one have an operation scheduled, you can even send Reiki ahead to that event to help it go smoothly.
The Written Word: When writing letters, filling out official forms or journaling the Reiki symbols can be traced on the paperwork to create a positivity to the words. It can be placed under the stamp of a letter or written on the gift tag of a present.
So dear seeker of healing and spiritual growth, Reiki is a mystical art that opens doors to transformative experiences and expanded applications. As you delve deeper into the practice of Reiki, its boundless potential unfolds before you. By embracing Reiki as a way of life, you can embark on a profound journey of self-discovery, healing, and service to others.
As a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher and Angel Reiki Master/Teacher, I encourage you to explore the vast realm of Reiki beyond the confines of a traditional session. Embrace the power of self-healing and self-care, allowing Reiki to be a guiding force in your daily life. Take time each day to connect with the universal life force energy, allowing it to nourish your body, mind, and spirit.
Remember that Reiki is not limited to individuals alone—it extends its gentle touch to the animal kingdom as well. Share the soothing energy of Reiki with your beloved pets, offering them comfort and support. Whether they are experiencing physical ailments or emotional imbalances, Reiki can contribute to their overall well-being.
Moreover, do not underestimate the ability of Reiki to cleanse spaces and objects. Invite Reiki into your living and working environments, clearing away stagnant energy and creating a harmonious atmosphere. By infusing positive intentions and energy into your surroundings, you can create a sacred space that nurtures your soul.
In the realm of energy healing, distance knows no bounds. With the practice of distance healing, you can extend the healing energy of Reiki to individuals, situations, or events across time and space. Through focused intention and the use of Reiki symbols, you can become an instrument of healing for those who are physically distant but energetically connected.
As you continue your journey with Reiki, consider exploring the infinite possibilities it presents. You may find yourself drawn to additional forms of Reiki, such as Quantum Reiki, Karuna Reiki or Tibetan Reiki, each offering its own unique qualities and healing vibrations. Embrace the knowledge that as a Reiki practitioner, you are forever a student, continuously learning and expanding your understanding of this profound healing art.
In conclusion, my dear reader, Reiki is a sacred gift that has the power to transform lives on multiple levels. Beyond the traditional session, it serves as a gateway to self-healing, a catalyst for enhanced well-being, and a tool for harmonizing the world around us. Embrace the gentle yet profound energy of Reiki, and let its healing light guide you on a remarkable journey of self-discovery, growth, and service to others.
May the universal life force energy of Reiki illuminate your path and empower you to embrace the wonders of the spiritual realm. Open your heart and mind to the boundless possibilities that await you as you embark on this sacred voyage of healing and transformation.
