Reiki can aid in the recovery of illnesses and injuries, reduce stress & anxiety, balance out all energy centers of the body, clear through blockages (emotional, mental, or physical) and guide you to your true inner essence of peace. Reiki works well in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to aid in recovery and relieve side effects. If you feel scattered, fearful, anxious, imbalanced, ungrounded, or ill, then Reiki will serve you as a form of healing. If you want to become more intimate with your higher self and connect deeper to your own body, mind, and spirit, then Reiki can also serve you.
Reiki is a Japanese technique that promotes healing on all levels of our being- physical, emotional and spiritual . Rei stands for spiritual wisdom and Ki stands for life energy . Ki is the primary energy that animates our body and is the current behind our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life. Therefore Reiki stands for “spiritually guided life force energy.” Reiki moves vital life force/universal life energy through the giver by touch or at a distance to the receiver. The life energy that flows through the body is guided by spiritual consciousness and is always for the receivers highest good. Reiki heals by balancing the energy of Ki (life energy) which animates our physical body (organs & tissues) and makes up the energy fields surrounding our physical body. When Ki is disrupted, our physical, emotional and spiritual states can be diminished. A disruption of Ki is the main cause of illness. During a session, Reiki will work to release blockages allowing a healthy flow of Ki to return to the body
It is important to note that the giver is not the person doing any of the healing. The giver is simply a conduit for Reiki to move through them. Whatever healing you receive is from the spiritually guided wisdom of God. Reiki, in this way, is very intelligent because the giver does not need to direct, intend, or manipulate the session. Therefore Reiki, guided by its own Divine intelligence, will serve your highest good. The responsibility of the giver is to create sacred space, be focused in the moment, have a still mind and simply allow the deep wisdom of Reiki to come through and offer the healing that you need.
Holy Fire III Reiki is new form of Reiki that was introduced from the International Center of Reiki in 2014. The founder, William Lee Rand, working with his spiritual adviser, received this new level of Reiki through Jesus. Holy Fire Reiki is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness.
ICRT states that Holy Fire Reiki
"Works continuously even when not thinking about it and spontaneously heals issues as they come up. Always respects free will. Heals deeply and quickly without distress. Heals relationships and interactions with others. Releases worry and replaces it with a sense of safety in a most pronounced way. Spontaneously provides guidance that is palpable for every level of life experience. Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy for a person to have such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, optimism, trust, joy, peace, and so forth. One of the more wonderful effects is feeling of being loved. This a deep and refined nurtured feeling. Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective."

Chakra is Sanskrit for wheel. They are spinning electro-magnetic energy centers or vortexes that energize and strengthen each of our 7 endocrine glands + meridians daily. These 7 major centers are within your subtle body and represent the energetic intersection between physical matter and your consciousness. The chakras are constantly receiving and transmitting energy. The functioning of your chakras shape how you inhabit your body, how successful your relationships are (in all aspects of life), and how much inner stability and peace you are able to enjoy.
Working with the chakra’s help to restore and enhance energy flow. Chakras can contain blockages that restrict the flow of energy or they can be too open, allowing for over stimulation. Balancing our chakras restores harmony in relation to each individual. When chakras are fully aligned we are able to reside in our true nature, our thoughts and emotions are balanced, and the river of prana (life force energy) flows freely through the body allowing for clarity, grounding and a pure connection to our Highest Self. One builds a greater intimacy with themselves through learning about the chakra system.
During a Reiki session each of these chakras will receive reiki and aid in restoring the balance of these centers. As we work together you will learn about each chakra and where imbalances may have shown themselves and learn to detect your own blockages. You can then be offered techniques and practices to continue your own healing journey at home and throughout your life.
Every crystal has varying properties and qualities due to the different molecular structure it may contain. Crystals themselves, form in an upward pattern, allowing energy to naturally rise through them. They also have a set vibration and therefore, depending on the crystal used, the crystal can positively influence the place in your body that may be imbalanced by restoring a healthy flow of prana. Therefore, when using a crystal any dense energy (lower vibrations) will be transmuted from the body or transformed to higher vibration. This has huge implication on our power to heal and transform any ailments.
Crystals are already attuned to higher consciousness and should primarily be used as a tool for emotional stability and promote spiritual development. They can be seen as any other life form as they contain the same energetic bodies as humans do. Working with these tools requires respect, awareness and knowledge. Also, crystals do not magically give you energy. They only offer an impulse and then the life force within your own body acts out the healing that you receive.
During a Reiki session crystals can be used throughout to assist in your healing through the balancing of your energy system. If there is an imbalance found along the chakra system, a crystal that corresponds to the healing of that chakra will be placed on the body. The crystals are cleansed with palo santa and recharged with Reiki before and after every use.
Mikao Usui (Usui Sensei) is the founder of the Reiki System of Healing. He was born on August 15h 1865. In 1922, he climbed Mt. Kurama where he began a penance while fasting. On the 21st day he felt REIKI over his head and received the Reiki cure while he was spiritually awakened. He once said “It is much better to give this power widely to a lot of people in the world and enjoy it among them than to keep it exclusively by his family members.” Reiki has since spread through the world from his direct student Hayashi Sensei who then trained Hawayo Takata. There was never a time when Reiki did not exist. It simply resurged into human consciousness once again through Mikao Usui.
During a session we will discuss what your goals are for working together. The session will proceed with you laying on a massage table first. The giver will gently place hands over the body in various locations. Reiki is then channeled from the giver to the receiver. At some point in the session you may be asked to turn over so that you will receive Reiki healing on the back of you body. The session begins and closes with intention and and gratitude. You may feel warm, cool or tingling sensations throughout the session. We will end the session with time to connect and discuss anything that feels relevant.
