Reiki Classes Offer a Deep Healing for Each Student

After practicing Reiki for many years, I love to point out to all of my students how deeply healing the class is for each of them. The attunements that we go through during class allow for heavy, stuck energy to fall away. This enables their whole energy body to flow into a more elevated and harmonious frequency for optimal wellness. While learning the history of Reiki is essential for proper reverence, the technique and foundation for proper practice is essential. 

Reiki classes are a healing


With Reiki, the essential piece for proper flow is to stay open and allow while also being grounded. I like to imagine that I am like a waterfall, tapping into the higher frequencies of the heavens above and allowing it to flow all the way down through my body out into the earth. My hands are just simply that connector that provides that connection of elevated frequency to my clients. I can also use my eyes to channel Reiki as well as my voice as I chant and sing with focus on the person for whom I am holding space for a deep release and healing. I teach all of these practices in class.

During class not only does each student learn about the practice of Reiki, they also have an opportunity to dig deep into self awareness. Our goal is to learn how to walk with love and compassion to allow for the deep wisdom and grace to flow through us and ripple outward. The more I practice Reiki the more I learn the importance of identifying where I am on my path and respecting others journey as their own. As a Reiki teacher, I strive to be always learning more to help each person in a way that makes sense to them. Each student will gain more clarity the more they practice. This is the foundation of a Reiki practice, daily self-treatments to have more insight into the inner way of being. The more we practice, the more we are present, the more clarity we have. This is the way of Reiki.

The key to healing the subconscious and reprogram how I react to situations is by visualizing healing myself. While in a deeply meditative Reiki state, I make sure Reiki flows through my entire being starting with hara centering. If I am unable to sense a nice flow through that area I will go through a Reiki self-treatment starting at the root chakra, just below the tailbone, then moving up after I sense the flow.

Next I move up to the hara center point which is the Tan den (aka dantien) 2” below and behind the bellybutton. Once I can feel an expansive flow of Reiki, I move out to the hips and be sure that the flow moves out from the center point. The 3rd chakra receives some love next. I pause here at the base of the sternum until I can sense flow out the front and back of the chakra. I love to imagine a powerful yellow geyser of light out in front as well as behind me. Once the back feels flowing, I draw in healthy energy from behind me. 🌟

 The 4th chakra or the heart-center is my next area of focus. I love to stay here and make sure it expand both out the front and the back and then scan to be sure the entire aura at all the layers are nice and flowing. Then the 5th Throat chakra receives a good Reiki Session. I check the way out to the sides of the aura here as well for good flow and release of heavy slow energy that may be stacking up causing neck and shoulder pain. After this is the 6th or third eye. Again here I will check front and back with scanning to be sure there is good flow and around to the sides especially. Here I will sit to be sure I sense good flow to both the throat and entire head for best connection to intuition and my guides.

Finally I bring my awareness to the entire crown and check for flow up and out the back of the head and center crown and sides to the front. Once this has been completed I am able to work on others. This is essential to start the day so that stress or emotions do not get stuck and begin to stack up causing pain or aches.

In class we cover the importance of all these things. I highly encourage each student to carve out time daily for self-care with Reiki self-treatment because it’s the best way to get to know oneself and stay on the path to healing through self-awareness. Level I continues to awaken senses until 21 days out. Level II attunement does the same. Practice continues to deepen that healing and is very essential to the heart of Reiki practice.

There is so much covered in class I do recommend each student make time to come out to Reiki Circles and practice. This time offers so much learning and support for everyone, especially me. 💖🦋🌸 If you are ready to begin your inner journey, reach out!

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.
