Reiki Circles – Relaxation, Healing and Connection

I absolutely love the beautiful energy of the Reiki Circles that I host twice a month. The atmosphere during these events is so uplifting, healing and very “high-vibration.”

We begin with a guided imagery meditation to connect our energy and to get everyone into a relaxed and tranquil mood. Everyone closes their eyes and I […]

Reiki – Tapping in to a Higher Consciousness

The word Reiki, being of Japanese origin, and as you most likely know, is composed of two words, the “Rei” and the “ki.” Rei means “spiritually guided” or “spiritual” and the ki refers to the life energy (same as chi or prana) that flows through all living beings. So Reiki can be considered spiritually-guided energy […]

Practicing Reiki – A Healing and Cleansing Process

I do believe that most people who have a Reiki session and/or become trained in the modality experience some form of what is termed a “healing reaction” or “cleansing reaction.” Have you personally ever felt this this?

I have written about this numerous times, simply because it is a relatively common experience. Such a reaction […]

Practicing Reiki – Sessions on the Go

For a typical Reiki treatment, a client removes shoes only and then lays down on a Reiki table, which is similar to a massage table. The one-hour session may consist of 10-15 minutes of discussion with the remainder being table-time — the part where an individual deeply relaxes and is open to the healing benefits […]

Reiki – A Path to Awakening and Enlightenment

When Mikao Usui, the founder of the system of Reiki, sat up on Mt. Kurama in Japan in a meditational retreat — after 21 days, it is said that he was suddenly enlightened with the great Reiki energy. And this indeed was a life-changing event for him. Though no one is certain exactly what Usui’s […]

The Reiki Modality – Offering Light and Healing Energy

Reiki is known as a gentle, yet powerful healing system. It is gentle in the quality and feel of the energy, but potentially powerful in terms of effective results. Sometimes Practitioners are known as “Lightworkers.”

However, I personally consider myself a “healing facilitator” — a conduit for a lovely, radiant, soothing energy that emanates from […]

Reiki Training – The Attunement Experience

The Attunement is the term given to the unique process of initiating a student into a particular Level of Reiki training. It is considered a “spiritual blessing” — a sort of sacred ceremony to connect the student to the Source of the Reiki energy. In the classic Japanese Reiki tradition it is called a reiju.


Reiki – A Lifelong Journey

Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki, is believed to have originally discovered Reiki more as a system of spiritual enlightenment. That is, until he realized that he had received a wonderful gift that helped people heal. Then he dedicated his newfound abilities to working with all who needed healing.

Here in the West, Reiki is […]

Reiki – Healing Reaction for Emotional Release

A “healing reaction,” sometimes referred to as a “cleansing reaction” is something that may occur in those experiencing a Reiki session or even an attunement for the first time. This can present itself in a variety of ways, the most common being an emotional release of tears, or sometimes increased thirst or fatigue.

Though this […]

Reiki Healing – The Basics and Benefits

I receive so many inquiries about Reiki — which is a wonderful thing! Many people have heard of it, but are not sure exactly what it is. To those who have no clue, it might seem like a step away from “magic” or even worse — “voodoo” — and some just wonder if it is […]
