Reiki 101

Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) is a non-invasive technique for stress reduction and relaxation that brings healing to all energetic aspects of a person in the 3D realm. 


In Reiki's place of discovery of Japan, “Rei" means “Divine/Universal", and “Ki" means “Life Force Energy".  Reiki is so named because it consists of channeling this universal energy into an individual to heal the body's life force energy: “Divinely Guided Universal Life Force Energy". 


Ki — also known as “Prana" in India, “Qi" or “Chi" in China, and “Ti" or “Ki" in Hawaii — flows in and around everything.  Each of us humans is an energy system that can be described as gaseous, floating particles — a 3D matrix of energy fields.  We feel our most happy, healthy, and in alignment with our true nature when our Ki is flowing smoothly.


REIKI health benefits include:

  • MENTAL:  calmness and clarity replace left-brain mind chatter 

  • PHYSICAL:  aches and pains of the body dissolve 

  • EMOTIONAL:  feelings of being filled with energy of the highest frequency — unconditional love — uplift the mood 

However, our Ki is often depleted through our interactions with the world around us; and when we are depleted of our own life force energy, we are all the more vulnerable to picking up energies that others have randomly left behind, which can be negative in form.  (We all leave our own energetic footprints wherever we go, just like dust trails.  These energetic dust trails inevitably lead to energetic dust bunnies collecting in random places, such as the auric fields of those with whom we share planetary space.) 

As energetic dust gets entangled in our energy fields, this can manifest energetic blockages and cause health problems that manifest in individual's emotional, mental, or physical bodies — and, as the law of attraction would have it, negative energies attract other negative energies, further compounding these problems.  When Ki is blocked or congested, people often feel depressed, sore, or stressed, just to name a few symptoms.

Every body experiences Reiki sessions differently.  However, generally speaking,



I am a certified Reiki Master, attuned to Usui/Holy Fire III as well as Seichem Reiki lineages.  I practice Reiki because I value both the impactful results that it brings to clients, as well as the experience of working with healing energy itself.  As with other energy healing modalities, intention is what makes a Reiki healing successful — therefore, Reiki is one of my favorite healings to offer from a distance.

Reiki is not associated with any religion.
