What is Reiki?

Reiki is a holistic healing technique that uses gentle touch to relieve pain and stress. This healing energy removes mental and emotional blockages; nourishes organs, glands, and tissues; boosts the immune system; and reestablishes connection with Spirit. Balance is restored and healing begins. The Reiki symbols can be used to support us in achieving goals that are aligned with our highest purpose. If we agree to take action towards these goals by committing to healthy lifestyle changes, the power is amplified even further.

After reviewing my session notes from the past two months, I am pleasantly surprised at the full spectrum of challenges that I’ve used Reiki to ease. “Stuckness” is a complaint I often hear from my clients. Reiki can help illuminate as well as blast through blockages, unconscious self-sabotage, and resistance. Clarity is another hot topic. Often people know that they have strayed from their paths, but are unsure how to get back. Reiki can help dispel the fog and activate the intuitive center allowing us to receive guidance from a higher source.

“Monkey mind” is a Buddhist term for the constant loop of thoughts that plays repeatedly in our heads, contributing to anxiety, tension, and insomnia. We all have it, although it can be reduced with awareness and mindfulness practices. Reiki can help calm those busy monkeys down. Headaches and insomnia can be addressed during a series of treatments, as can physical, mental, or emotional trauma that has been held in the body over time.

I’ve helped a client experience a more harmonious relationship with her ex, mainly through shifting her own expectations and releasing pain points that triggered her for years. I’ve used Reiki to support concrete goals such as relieving knee or shoulder pain as well as more mystical goals like spiritual growth or finding one’s life purpose. It helps with stubbed toes and broken hearts and everything in between!

In my eyes, any goal that is in alignment with the principals of love, joy, peace, freedom, and unity can benefit from the added boost of Reiki. Finding a new home/vehicle/partner/job, attracting the perfect clients or friends, planning the ideal vacation, conceiving a healthy child, feeling at ease in day to day life, releasing old resentment or guilt, finding a spiritually connected life partner, feeling confident during a presentation or exam, …. I could go on and on! But I think you get the idea. Reiki for goals. It gives an added boost wherever needed.
