Everything is made of energy… finally, something spiritual people & scientists can agree on!! You, me, the maple tree in my backyard, rivers, animals,… all energy & all connected. The potential for balance, harmony, & healing is immense. That’s what I love about Reiki. It’s universal life-force energy, flowing through everything & everyone.
As my Reiki practice grows, I find that it helps my clients physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually because the energy flows where it’s needed most. I don’t use the term “healer” to describe myself because I’m a hollow reed, a vessel, for the energy that flows to the person or animal I’m helping. It’s not my energy that heals; it’s the energy available to all of us with proper training & heightened awareness. It’s very exciting that the Western medical profession, from doctors to insurance companies, is publicly acknowledging the benefits of energy work.
Every session is unique, allowing me to use a variety of sources, including Usui Reiki, to help my clients. The work I do falls into three general categories– hands-on, animal Reiki, & distant healing.
Hands-on work means an adult or child comes to me in person for reasons including but not limited to– past trauma, illness or recent surgery, stress or anxiety, and self-awareness to identify a drop in energy or a feeling of disconnectedness.
Animal Reiki is performed for pets who’ve experienced neglect or abuse, anxiety, illness, & even aging issues. The flow of positive energy & love to the animal can relieve negativity, increase a sense of well-being, & lessen pain & suffering.
Distant healing benefits the client just as hands-on work can do & helps those who cannot see me in person for whatever reason. The only difference is that it requires more of a time commitment from both me & my client to communicate via phone before & after the service is provided. The results can be just as powerful.
I’ll explain more in future blogs but wanted to send out this general information because so many people ask, “What it is energy work?” and “How can it help me?” Websites & books have more background information so my blog posts will focus on my personal experience & what kinds of results I’m seeing in my practice.
