What is Reiki…

pink water lilly.jpg

Reiki is a holistic, light-touch, energy-based healing modality.  Mikao Usui introduced an energy-based healing system called Usui Reiki Ryoho in Japan during the late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  Pronounced Ew-suey Ray-key Rye-oh-ho, translated from Japanese, means Usui Reiki Healing Method.

Today, Reiki has been expanded and diversified under various names, but Holistic Synergy Coaching continues to teach the original three level format known today as Usui Shiki Ryoho. 

Reiki re-establishes a normal flow of energy (Ki) within the body to heal all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual (Note: life-force energy is also known as Chi/Qi [China], Prana [India] or Mana [Hawaii], etc.).  Our physical body is sensitive to the energy of thoughts and emotions.  When we experience negative feelings or thoughts about ourselves, develop negative thought patterns and beliefs, or experience a physical or emotional shock, this affects our energy field, creating emotional and physiological blockages that eventually disrupt our health.  Reiki frees and aligns the body’s energy system, which in turn releases pain on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  Reiki aids the body in releasing stress and tension by creating deep relaxation and it restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress.  It gently and effectively opens blocked meridians (energy pathways) and chakras (energy centers) and clears the energy bodies, leaving you feeling relaxed and at peace.

For Reiki to be more effective, the client should be open minded and willing to take responsibility to alter unsupportive life patterns or issues to create their own healing.  Reiki is simple and provides measurable results - in essence, it is power, light and love.

The Attunements

What is a Reiki Attunement?

Unlike other healing arts, reiki is passed from master to student through a reiki attunement - or ceremony - that allows the student to connect to the universal reiki source. The attunement allows you to become a vessel through which reiki energy can flow freely, and move reiki energy for yourself and others. While you can read about reiki in a book and learn hand positions, until you have been attuned to channel reiki, you cannot truly practice reiki.

There are three course - also known as “Attunements” - plus an apprenticeship. You must take the classes in sequence.


How to prepare for a Reiki Attunement?

Receiving a reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience, as your energetic pathways - referred to in Reiki and many other energy moving or healing modalities, as “Chakras” - are opened by a reiki master. The resulting effect is reiki energy is allowed to flow freely through your body to impact your health and the health of others.

How you prepare for a reiki attunement depends on your own personal spiritual practice. While it’s not strictly necessary to do anything in order to prepare to receive a reiki attunement, most students choose to reconnect with their own spiritual practice before their attunement.

One recommended plan for preparing for a reiki attunement involves a 3-day cleanse before your attunement. Avoid eating heavy foods, limit or eliminate caffeine, sugar, tobacco or alcohol. Spend your time reading or meditating rather than watching TV.

In all honesty, any personal and spiritual preparation you do will help you be more ready to accept the spiritual transformation and encourage the attunement to have profound, long-term impacts on your life and wellbeing.

Experiencing a healing session by a Reiki Master/Teacher is the best way you can learn more about Reiki.  A private Reiki session gives you an opportunity to gain first-hand experience and also the opportunity to find out more and to be able to talk to your Reiki Teacher with any questions you may have. 

When you are keen to develop yourself and are ready to learn how to heal other people, animals, etc,  then you can learn more about Reiki healing on a weekend course.

I offer private Reiki Healing sessions in Vancouver, BC Canada.  Distance Reiki Healings are also available via Skype or my online meeting room.

I can offer a unique and holistic insight into the root cause of pain, discomfort and disease and help to inspire, what I refer to as “Radical Self-Love”.
