Reiki is a hands on healing modality re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the 1900s. Working with Reiki is working on an energy level connecting to energetic subtle imbalances such as energy knots; blockages on a spiritual, emotional and mental level and by soothing these with Reiki healing a person can sense feeling calm, relaxed, centred and whole. By being a Reiki practitioner one becomes a clear channel or hollow bone as sometimes it is known shamanically, and brings through universal life force energy to be received by the client. Reiki is different from other hands on healing modalities in the sense that to become a Reiki practitioner one needs to receive attunements given by a Reiki master. The attunement opens you to receive and channel Reiki energy to others. It is believed that the Reiki energy travels to wherever it will do most good, directed innately by the intelligence of the energy itself.
Many people report feeling very relaxed and a sense that their busy mind has untangled and become peaceful. Reiki healing can be done in a chair if mobility is restricted or on a healing couch. Reiki can be given to small babies, children, adults and the elderly and also can be beneficial for animals and plants.
On a personal level I have found Reiki blends beautifully with other healing modalities such as certain crystals and in shamanic healing.
Shamanism is one of the oldest forms of spirituality that exists today. Over the past few years there has been a huge increase in people wanting to learn about the ancient and very private healing ways of old indigenous villages/tribes spanning through the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe. A shamanic practitioner can be described as a person that can spiritually travel to non-ordinary reality or the spirit realms to retrieve power, energy and wisdom that can be used in a positive way for the client and the planet. Shamanic training can be a lifelong process connecting and working not only with physical elders/teachers on earth but also gaining a relationship with spirit, animal totems, plants, tress, the oceans, the elements and our ancestors. Having the courage to trust in spirit, listening from within, connecting to feelings rather than thought can take years of practice and only when there is complete trust with spirit and ourselves, the magic truly happens. When coming for a shamanic healing, the client lays down on the floor or healing couch fully clothed. An assessment is done through verbal communication and the shamanic practitioner will listen and then with the connection of spirit, guides and helpers will feel what type of healing is required to bring in balance and wholeness. A combination of healing techniques may be used as well as smudging and chakra balance to finish the session. Tools such as the shamanic drum, rattle, feathers, herbs and crystals will be used during the healing session. Because of the nature of shamanic healing work, session times may be from 1 hour up to 3 hours.
Private crystal healing treatments are around 90 minutes and this includes an initial consultation to gain information based on the clients medication, physical ailments, lifestyle etc.
During a treatment the client lays down fully clothed on the healing couch. An initial assessment is done by using a pendulum over the seven main chakras giving a more in depth energetic assessment, clarifying any imbalances within the chakras, connecting to emotional/mental issues or blocks and how the clients feels generally within their being. After this specific crystals are placed on and around the physical body to bring about a combination of shifts within the energy bodies, possibly to draw off/out energy knots caused by frustrations or anger, calming tension within the head area/busy mind, correcting the flow or movement of the Chi within the clients body, generally bringing in as much balance possible for that client on all levels. Also if needed, other crystals such as wands may be used to spiritually work within a clients aura and on specific areas of the body.
The crystals are left on the body for up to a maximum of 45 mins and can be removed earlier if it is needed. The client feels deeply relaxed during the treatment but sometimes clients can be aware of sensations in and around the body. Other clients have commented on how relaxed they have felt, some falling into deep sleep whilst others have had a visual journey of colours and symbols that have meaning and insight for them personally.
The crystals are removed from the body and around the body slowly and gently. Once the crystals are removed the client is grounded and brought back into the here and now, water is given and the use of the specific crystals used during the treatment is discussed.
Also after the treatment advice is given as to what crystal/crystals may be good to wear, meditate with etc to continue the healing process.
Crystal treatments can be ongoing, as in the case of specific mental/emotional issues or they can be used simply for regular balance to the body, mind and spirit or as a special treat where specific crystals are used to just deeply relax alongside the Reiki i.e. for birthdays, anniversary or Christmas.
