Reiki for Infants and Babies

Opening up your Practice by offering Reiki for Infants and Babies Do you provide care for families with a newborn or infant? Consider opening your Reiki practice to infants and babies.

Chanting Reiki Symbols

Chanting Reiki Symbols

Reiki and Chanting One of the many gifts I received from my Karuna Reiki® Training was the use of chanting as part of the Reiki healing system. I was blessed with taking the Karuna Master training twice in 2011. At first the use of chanting and toning felt odd and uncomfortable especially in a session. However during my second training I saw the effects and benefits this had on the recipient. Recently in teaching, I was shown not only its effect on the individual receiving it, but also on the overall environment and space being used. The vibration created by the chanting impacted the client...

Reiki and Physics

Reiki and Physics

Has Physics Caught Up With Reiki? In October 1927, the world became a more magical place. The greatest living mathematicians and physicists had gathered in Belgium for the fifth Solvay Conference. It was here that Einstein, unimpressed with Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, famously said: “God does not play dice.” The world was meant to adhere to rules and mechanisms. But it was at this conference, also, that after days of careful discussion, the preeminent minds in their respective fields announced that the universe is not a machine after all. Few saw it at the time, but a shift had...

Reiki for Traumatic Stress Relief

Reiki for Traumatic Stress Relief

Reiki as a Complementary Healing Therapy I first learned about Reiki, a Japanese healing art, while working on the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Project from 2001- 2007 for the New York State Health Department. Driven by consumer demands, complementary therapies such as Reiki were slowly being integrated into hospital settings, medical school curriculum and conventional medical practices, while government policymakers were creating policy to protect consumers from unsafe and ineffective practices. Thus, New York became the first State in the country to establish an office...

Is Reiki a Religion?

Is Reiki a Religion?

Is Reiki a Religion? One question some people may ask when they first encounter Reiki is whether it’s a religion, although it is not. But looking at its important role as part of a spiritual path, it’s easy to understand why. Exactly What is Reiki? The name Reiki comes from the Japanese Rei, which means God’s Wisdom or Higher Power, and Ki, which is spirit or life force. Reiki is an enlightenment system practiced through sessions that typically last 60 to 90 minutes. It’s easy to learn with advancing levels of courses beginning with Reiki One. Individuals experience Reiki benefits through...

Joyful Relationships

Joyful Relationships

All relationships can be pleasurable when we know how to generate happiness regardless of what others say and do. Love and prosperity are self-generated because we are love and prosperity. Because we are love, we do not and cannot get love from anyone, but when we are around people who like us, it is easier to be ourselves (which is love). Once we are Self-realized, we are in a constant state of love. We are being ourselves under any and all circumstances even when others dislike or disapprove of us. Approval Addiction The main problem in relationships is the belief that we must have the...

How to Manage and Revitalize Your Personal Energy

Energy, Health, and Conscious Living The 21st Century Energy Crisis One of the major health issues affecting people today is lack of energy. The energy crisis we are currently facing is not limited to our environment and the planet we live on. The crisis extends to each one of us, and the bodies we live in. More and more people suffer from stress related illnesses.

Psychotherapeutic Reiki for Mind and Body

Psychotherapeutic Reiki for Mind and Body

At the heart of this approach is the position that psychological symptoms and conditions are organized and maintained by ki (subtle energy) in the human energy field and are stored and carried in the physical body. Traditional psychotherapeutic approaches do not address subtle energy and they tend to downplay or ignore the role the body plays in symptom formation. Traditional approaches do not seek to treat the energy blocks that underlie the effects of negative conditioning, stress and trauma nor do they do enough to promote awareness of a symptom’s interconnected parts: energetic, mental,...

Reiki Moves into Hospice and Home Health Care Spheres

Reiki Moves into Hospice and Home Health Care Spheres

According to a 2012 report from the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, an estimated 1.65 million patients received service from hospice in 2011. In a 2004 report, the Centers for Disease Control estimated that nearly 1.4 million people were using home health care services. Couple these statistics, and the sheer numbers of people who fall under these two categories of treatment becomes clear: millions of patients each year choose at-home therapies, be it a hospice home or a personal one. Reiki and Palliative Care Beyond the patients, home care and hospice scenarios can affect...

Finding Your Power – 
Laying the Seeds for an Unshakable Foundation

Finding Your Power – 
Laying the Seeds for an Unshakable Foundation

The journey of finding your power, when taken in earnest, changes you from the inside out.  It changes all that you say, do, think and feel about yourself, your relationships and life’s circumstances.  At first blush, the concept may sound a little foreign.  But, once you commence the journey to discover your true essence, your power, you can never go back . . . and, you’ll never want to. Several years ago, a series of events in my life were triggered that lead me on a journey to discover my own power.  It began with a difficult pregnancy followed by a difficult birth and a son who suffered...

Thoughts on Teaching Reiki

Thoughts on Teaching Reiki

I have been teaching Reiki since 2006. Over the years I have found myself repeating certain phrases during my classes. I tell my students that if they remember anything from their class to remember these things: Reiki is the Teacher Trust your intuition Intention is everything Keep your ego and personality out of it I’ve said these things so many times in class that I’ve added them to my handouts. And I think I’m going to add – Let Reiki humble you. I’d like to share these ideas with you. Maybe they will resonate with you and you can use them in your class. Maybe you have some words of...

A lot of their success-making factors cannot be seen because their winning combination starts within. First: What is Your Inner Vision? The first key to having a successful...

Clearing Your Space with Reiki

Clearing Your Space with Reiki

Applying Reiki Energy to Your Space The energy that moves through you in a Reiki session can be applied to the space you live in and work in as well, with great beneficial effect. In fact, the Reiki you do on yourself and on others will be enhanced if the space you work in is also clear. Stuck or sticky feelings in a space can come from the residue of past experiences which can leave a heaviness behind. Energy lines from the earth’s natural fields can affect a space’s sense of balance.1 Space Clearing for Comfort Some of these sources of discomfort are perceptible with electronic devices,...

A New Look at the Five Reiki Principles

A New Look at the Five Reiki Principles

The Five Reiki Principles For the past months, I’ve been practicing Hatsurei-Ho, a Japanese Reiki meditation technique which incorporates the reciting of the 5 Reiki Principles.  What struck me a few weeks into this practice was the feeling I got from the words that make up the 5 Principles; that a “stern someone” was standing over me telling me what to do as well as what not to do. The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness It has been 25 years since these principles were first told to me in my Reiki 1 class and while I worked with these principles early on, my personal work with them has become...
