Is Reiki even real?
I get this question a lot. Of course it is real because energy itself is real. Do you ever come across someone or walk into a room and you can just feel someone’s discomfort/stress, maybe they rub you the wrong way but you can’t exactly explain why? You may ask yourself "what is that?" or "why is that?".
We each have an aura that can be felt through vibrational waves- its where we get the saying- vibes, “we vibe well”, or “ we don’t vibe well together”, "you can cut the tension with a knife."
Well that is your primal brain (the hindbrain, the medulla and the limbic system) where your survival instinct lives telling you to proceed cautiously.

That part of you is sensing someone who may be having a chakra or energy imbalance or may cause one within you- which can happen with stress or sickness and vice versa. There are times in life where we experience an imbalance as well- we just don’t feel ourselves whether there is an explanation for it or not. We sense that something within us is off so to speak.
Reiki is a Japanese technique/art of balancing the chakra/energy systems in order to achieve relaxation and decreasing stress- in turn it promotes healing.
It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Its as invisible and as real as the oxygen we breath to live. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to be more sensitive to stress, sickness, feeling high strung and exhausted. If that life force energy is high and imbalanced, we can feel "out of control" or making logical decisions and stone walling our own emotions or vice versa. The goal is find these imbalances, focus on them and bring them into balance so that we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Keep in mind Reiki is a supplemental holistic care option, it does not cure disease, disorders or mental illnesses.
What does a Reiki appointment look like?
I will discuss with you any issues or stresses or ailments you may be having. I will remind you that I operate from an indigenous background and how I do Reiki may differ from how someone else does Reiki.
I will then do a Lenormand (is more focused on life occurrences such as moving, getting/losing a job/taking a trip)/Tarot (is focused on how people think, feel or may act about a situation) card reading that will give us a more specific picture into what else maybe causing the energy or chakra imbalance.
I will then help you find your spirit animal to help assist you in your meditations outside of the office.
Depending on what is needed we can start with either a guided meditation to help you connect with your spirit guides, it could be ancestors, animals, someone close to you that may have passed, it is different for everyone.
Reiki and Sound Therapy is performed as we focus on the chakra with the largest imbalance and work our way into the others that need it.
I will give you a runic stave- this was a tradition among the indigenous peoples of northern Europe, Britain, Scandinavia, and Iceland that you can use for your meditations or spiritual work outside of the office.
Do I need to come to the office for Reiki?
I prefer to do Reiki face to face, however I am happy to do distance Reiki via online with Zoom or any free video conferencing app.
