Reiki Basics Series (Part 4): Common Questions & Answers

What will I feel during a treatment?

Everyone is different—you may or may not feel heat, tingling, small parts of you may feel cold. It is very likely you will feel deep relaxation, peace, and love. Memories, traumas, and emotions may surface, and they may go floating by and release, or you may feel some emotions as they come to mind. This is all a very good thing! Each Reiki treatment is gentle, unique, deep, and far reaching. Consecutive treatments result in layers being healed to feel balance, peace, and joy.

Why should I have a treatment?

  • to bring back the love of life in you
  • to balance your energy
  • to allow new and vibrant energy in your body
  • to release stagnant or stuck energy
  • to remember who you are
  • to experience happiness, joy, love, peace, exuberance
  • so that constricted energy can be transmuted into pleasurable energy
  • to allow your unique creativity to shine
  • to allow your body to become more relaxed, healing occurs
  • to allow your life to open up before you in new and exciting ways

Why should I learn Reiki for myself?

If Reiki is something you want in your everyday life, I encourage you to learn Reiki. As you treat yourself with Reiki, and begin to heal and change your world, you can treat others and animals with Reiki too. It’s a win-win situation however you look at it. 🙂

Does Reiki ever make me feel worse?

The answer to this question is both yes and no. As your energy is balancing and you are building new vibrant energy inside you, the releasing of old stagnant energy may feel unpleasant at times. You may feel like you have to walk through a mud puddle to get to the green grass on the other side. 🙂 And it’s SO worth it!

Reiki Basics Series (Part 3): What Is a Reiki Treatment?

A Reiki treatment commonly resembles typical bodywork appointments, where the client lies fully clothed on his or her back on a massage table.  It is a simple, yet profound procedure consisting of calm, concentrated energy flowing from the practitioner’s hands to the client’s body.  This is by touching (only appropriate areas), and/or the practitioner placing their hands a few inches above the client’s body.  If the client is not comfortable with touching, the practitioner can place their hands above the client’s body. This is fully acceptable and just as effective. The practitioner uses trained awareness and intuition to guide healing energy to the client’s whole body, and also to specific areas that may need more attention.  A full Reiki treatment is gentle, deeply relaxing, and deep reaching.  It allows peace and healing energy to permeate the client’s body, mind, and spirit.  Ahhhh, can you feel it?  🙂

In the past year, I’ve added something exciting to my Reiki treatments and Reiki workshops! I’ve been working with masculine and feminine energy flow, breath, movement, touch, and sound.  I’ve integrated these wonderful tools into my Reiki work, both with humans and animals.  The results have been amazing.  I have found that using all these methods together with Reiki brings our bodies to a new level of wholeness and balance—balance exponentially (as you see in my logo, Reiki balance+).  It transmutes constricted energy into relaxed, flowing energy, and it feels so great.  As this constricted energy is transmuted into pleasurable energy, our unique creativity shines, our bodies become more relaxed, healing occurs, and our life opens up before us in new and exciting ways.

Reiki Basics Series (Part 1): What is Reiki?

Everything is energy—everything. Our body is energy. When we feel stress, illness, trauma, etc. our beautiful life energy may become unbalanced, or stuck. If this unbalanced or stagnant, stuck energy is left for a period of time, the result may show up in a form of illness or disease. Reiki is an energy healing modality from a Reiki practitioner using energy flowing through them, to the client. It is important to note this energy is not from the practitioner, rather the energy flows through the the practitioner. The practitioner has learned and become attuned from a Reiki Teacher to accept the flow of energy through them for healing purposes.

Hygge—Canadian Style!

Coziness of the Soul. Doesn’t that sound marvelous? Hygge (pronounced HOO-gah) is the Danish art of creating coziness of the soul—things that make you feel good.

As the hours of daylight decrease, it’s the perfect time to bring coziness into our lives. What images come to your mind with the words “coziness of the soul”?

Allow me to add a few images to your thoughts…

  • candles
  • a soft, warm blanket
  • comfy wool socks
  • a good book
  • a fireplace
  • a warm drink
  • a perfect spot to watch the snow fall
  • comfy clothes
  • a get-together with family and friends
  • delicious, pleasure food—something decadent, or hearty and warming
  • gratitude—feeling thankful for the little things
  • fresh smell of pine or wood
  • soft music
  • a hot bath
  • crafts—knitting, coloring, crocheting…
  • board games, card games, puzzles…
  • making something by hand
  • a Reiki treatment! 🙂

The Danish have a great idea. I encourage you to bring Hygge—Canadian Style into your life. Happy Winter to my dear family and friends!
