How little did I know when I first started working with Reiki. As a matter of fact, I thought I knew why I was interested in learning more about it but really, I had no idea what I would get myself into.
Over and over, when working with my clients, I am blown away by how fast Reiki works, and by how much it exceeds my expectations of what it can do.
Practicing Reiki has been an extraordinary lesson in letting go of my ego. Letting go of what I think would be best for my client, but simply trusting into the Divine Source of all life that healing will always be provided at it’s own pace, where it is needed the most, and only to serve the highest good.
One of my clients came to me with severe disturbances in her life, and asked me to guide her through a Past Life Regression session. For a variety of reasons, I don’t use past life regression in the first session that we meet. My client was severely impacted by family trauma, causing a whole lot of hardship in her current life including financial issues, an inability to find and keep a fulfilling relationship, sleeping and eating disorders, plus trauma-related behavioral challenges in her children. When she entered my practice the first time, she was drastically underweight, deprived of sleep, plagued by anxiety and panic attacks, and just overwhelmed by completing daily life tasks. Only two sessions later she started smiling, came in happy and almost bubbling over by wanting to share how much better she felt already. After about six weeks, she had visibly gained some weight, her complexion went from very pale to a lively glow, her eyes had gained their shine back, and her anxiety was gone.
Another client scheduled Reiki sessions with me after her husband had died way too early, and left her and two teenage aged children behind. She was overwhelmed by grief and had a hard time fighting back her tears. She felt lonely, cut in half, like she had lost her vision for her life and her sense of belonging. The first session was energetically very intense. Only two weeks later, she showed up to her follow up session – with a big smile on her face, a loud “thank you” followed by “I feel like I have my life back”! Oh wow, I was so touched and happy for her!
Over the past two years I helped clients with fertility issues, helped them to dissolve unhealthy relationship patterns, overcome depression, sleeping disorders, anxiety, and addiction.
When you are stuck in an especially challenging situation, I offer to combine Reiki with hypnotherapy. I take my clients into a safe, deeply relaxed and highly suggestible state of trance. If appropriate, I include healing crystals into Reiki sessions – selecting crystals to amplify the healing energy channeled to address physical, mental, and emotional challenges.
Some of my clients tell me about the sensations they felt during a Reiki session.
“It feels so infinitely loving.” L.M.
“It feels like being wrapped into angel wings. My body feels weightless, while I feel safe enough to let my heart soften and release fearful emotions.” C.L.
“Oh this felt so nurturing, and gentle, and yet it went through and through – making me feel warm, and I’m always cold, and it felt like I was floating in a rose-colored cocoon of light.” S.R.
People who open up blockages and let the energy flow through may experience an intense rush – sometimes a sudden change in temperature, or a release of tears. People touched by Reiki Universal Life Force energy strive for self-improvement and for the higher good of all concerned. People become more loving with each other. Sharing kindness from the heart is possibly the noblest thing a person can do. Have the courage to live your light!
