Reiki is a natural Japanese relaxation and stress relieving technique used by practitioners who have been attuned by a Reiki Master-Teacher to channel spiritually guided life energy to promote healing.
There are many forms of energy healing. Reiki is just one of them.
How do you pronounce Reiki?
"Ray-Key" (like a ray of sunshine, and a key for a door)
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning "Universal Energy"
"Rei" means universal.
"Ki" means energy.
In-person Reiki Session
In a typical in-person Reiki session, the practitioner uses a gentle, laying-on of hands. The Reiki Practitioner applies a very light touch, or sometimes just places hands a few inches above the recipient's body while channeling the Reiki energy. The recipient may share information about what they would like focused on, or may ask for an overall wellness treatment, focusing on the seven major chakras (energy centers) to bring balance to the whole body, mind and spirit.
Reiki is a very powerful, yet gentle energy which is deeply relaxing and creates a sense of well-being. It is usually experienced as a profound feeling of warmth and comfort, and many clients often fall asleep during the session.
What Reiki is Not
Reiki is not a massage. The practitioner's touch is very gentle with the hands remaining in a set position for several moments. The person receiving the treatment remains fully clothed. The treatment is safe, non-invasive, and focuses on bringing about the highest good. Similar in nature to the power of prayer, Reiki can do no harm.
Reiki does not replace conventional medicine. Reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment of any sort but is rather a complement to your body, mind, and spiritual well-being. Many medical facilities and physicians are now referring patients for this beautiful complementary treatment. Reiki is now recognized by The Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals. Users are encouraged to consult their medical providers with any questions they may have.
Reiki is not a religion. Although spiritual in nature, Reiki is not affiliated with any religion and is used worldwide by people of all faiths.
Before your Session
Keep an open mind and open heart.
Avoid things you know to be stressors for you.
Avoid caffeine, alcohol and nicotine.
Take some time for yourself to breathe, relax, meditate, ground yourself, and prepare for the treatment.
Smile and think about things you are grateful for.
Simple Grounding Exercise
Time: 1-3 minutes
This is best done outside but can be done indoors; you may sit if not able to stand.
Spread your feet about shoulder width apart on a solid foundation (Mother Earth is best if possible).
Take all ten fingertips, bring them together and place them about one inch below your navel (bellybutton).
Close your eyes.
Take at least five deep, slow "belly breaths".
Feel your belly push into your fingertips each time you inhale.
Visualize yourself as a strong, steady tree. Imagine roots growing out of your feet, traveling deep down into Mother Earth. Your feet are anchored strongly into the earth, bringing balance to the rest of your body. You are grounded and balanced.
Take a few more deep breaths and slowly open your eyes.
Give thanks for this moment.
Level two and above Reiki practitioners have received additional attunements to higher vibrations and learned to do long-distance Reiki treatments on others, (with their permission) and to send Reiki ahead and back in time to help heal a situation.
Each day, Renee sends distance Reiki to those in need. If you or someone you know would like to receive a distance Reiki treatment, please fill out the form below.
Remember to get permission beforehand from the reciepient if you are requesting for someone else. If for some reason they are not able to give permission and they are not willing to accept the healing energy, the energy will be sent to where it is needed the most to serve the highest and greatest good. Reiki is never forced on someone unwillingly; it just doesn't work that way.
Please enter your name or someone you care about to be included in a daily distance Reiki healing session.
If this is for someone else, please be respectful of their wishes and get their permission FIRST before submitting this form.
At the end of two weeks, I will take your name from the list, so if you or the person you have requested healing for is still in need of healing after this time, you will need to resubmit your request.
You do not need to share your personal situation for the Reiki to work. Reiki will be sent with the intention of the "Highest Good" for you or your loved one.
If there is something specific you would like me to focus on, and are comfortable sharing with me, please provide it in the comment box below.
Send healing for my physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual self. (Or all of the above!)
Send healing for my upcoming appointment, job interview, family situation, my pet (include name and type of animal), doctor's visit, etc.
Send Reiki to heal a past event that has brought me grief, pain, injury, etc.
Send Reiki to a specific date/time (can be past or future).
Remember, you do not need to share specifics for the Reiki to work. It is more about the power of intention that facilitates the healing.
All information will be kept confidential.
