Reiki Will Always Be My Go-To

When I began practicing Reiki full-time, I had no idea where this would lead me. With a giant leap of faith I quit my steady paycheck job of more than 17 years back in January of 2020. I had been trying to grow my own Energy-work practice while working part-time, and finally realized I would only get the energy back that I put into it. And with that, I leapt…

My journey with Reiki practice began with an Usui Reiki attunement in 2002. I was skeptical, but my mom had just had her twisted ankle healed by Reiki at a party a few months back and she was amazed by the results. I had a deep conflict between being very much needing physical proof while at the same time being captivated by the spiritual healings we studied in Anthropology. While auras, biofields, energy-bodies were talked about, I questioned that they were anything palpable, treatable, healable, or visible. So I went into the attunement with a curious but “prove it” attitude. And prove it she did…

After over a decade studying and learning more about the subtle-body through Reiki, with Sound, using energy meridians, different types of Energywork, I have learned to sense disruption in the biofield not only with tuning forks, but with intuition, Reiki, Quantum Healing and Angel guidance. I have tested what I was sensing and repeatedly found my intuition to be correct. My Reiki students have also been able to sense similar things. This has opened up a whole different aspect of the work as I have allowed for guidance to flow through me. My initial focus was on understanding how energy flows through the physical body and how to improve that flow. I focused on Tuning forks and Reiki to help clear blocks in the physical body. This is powerful but I realize I limited the energy flow in the past. All these methods can work on so many levels. The bigger energy perspective that allows big shifts is the aura level work. 

Now my focus is on Aura clearing at all levels. I can now check at every level and be sure everything that is healthy and gentle to clear has been accomplished. Using Reiki is lovely because it is gentle and powerful. After a full reiki session, I go back and check it with aura clearing and find it to be well healed in most cases. I still check both the chakra (aka major energy centers) flow well, and I also tune in to the meridians within the physical body and verify they are clear and flowing well. I have come to see how our energy should flow quickly like a waterfall which carried away the “blocks” and hard “energy” that can begin to block the flow and over time stack up and create a dam. Once this happens, fatigue, anxiety, stress, lack of focus will result.

Aura-focused work shows me how important it is for each client to do daily work for themselves to maintain it if possible. Even one day can cause someone to hold enough hard energy blocks to stack up and cause trouble. Sleeping will help repair this but if there’s enough perceived stress, sleep may be difficult. I include mini-lessons for my clients to continue to maintain their grounding if they are interested.

The key is to be sure to connect to the Earth and release stress out of the body. The key is to take time to breathe, expand awareness into the entire body and then connect to the Earth and release stress blocks down and out of the body. Being able to visualize it and guide the flow of energy is essential. This is why I am creating videos and a book of mini-lessons so that all my client can continue the work at home and practice! It’s so important, now more than ever. Please share these from my YouTube channel if it helps you. It’s time we all work together to help each other rise and be our best. Every day our best will look different and that’s ok too.

Reach out for a private session, using reiki or other methods, if you’d like additional help. Otherwise enjoy my mini-lessons. Much love. 

Following the Reiki Principals

The ocean just wipes away stress and I feel so free in the wind and the waves.

Along with learning to connect and channel Reiki energy with an attunement, we also learn the Reiki precepts. These guidelines provide an ideal way to live one’s life in order to be the beacon of universal life energy from the heavens. These ideals provide a goal for the way to be walking with love and compassion. These precepts have given me so much to work on for the last 20 years. The precepts are as follows:

Just for today, do not worry
Just for today, do not anger
Just for today, do your best
Just for today, be grateful
Just for today, be kind to every living thing.

Simple enough, but oh so challenging. The key to being able to walk fully in all of these practices has been to take time to breathe deep and quiet my mind. Then in that space I am able to allow my body to release all the stress and emotions I have been holding. Meditation was impossible for me until Reiki. This practice has truly changed my life from one of surviving to one of thriving!

Just for today, is super helpful for me as it takes away the pressure of having to live up to this all the time. Since this is just for today, it feels very doable. I love that each one starts with what I feel is essentially saying, focus on right now.

Do not worry. This precept is easier some day more than others. I truly have come to realize, as long as I am taking time to breathe deep and take time for me a few times throughout the day, then this is possible.
Thoughts can be my biggest enemy, but instead of fighting them I have learned to see the worry as a clue it is time to be peaceful and take time to relax. Do not worry, but instead do.

Trying to control anger did not work. I had to view anger as a baby to be tended to.

Do not anger, has literally been my most challenging practice. The hardest part was to see how I was hurting and tend to that on my own. I learned to accept responsibility for my emotions and then talk to others after I had determined the root cause.

One book that helped me tremendously was ANGER by Thich Naht Hanh. This book describes the importance of personifying anger and seeing Anger as a baby. I had to learn to tend to the baby, and take it for a walk until it calmed down.

Next I learned to dig in and examine what was the hurt underneath. This skill is super empowering. No longer was I victim of my emotions or what someone “made me feel.” This simple precept took me years to master. And now that I have, I want everyone to know how important and powerful this is!

This technique of tending to Anger is a key step in Reclaiming your Power. You have the power over how you react to situations. You have the power to tend to you emotions and love them all as a part of you. This is self-love.

Once you have mastered the concept, the next step is to practice and feel it. Set up a session with me to learn or remember how to Reclaim your power through self love. Email healingwithangels77@gmail.com to set up time for self work.❤️
