Japanese word

Rei = God's Wisdom or

the Higher Power

Ki = life force energy

Reiki = spiritually guided

life force energy.

Reiki is a natural, powerful holistic form of healing that can be used on almost anything in the Universe, either distant, past, present or in the future. Every human has the ability to learn this powerful practice for self-treatment or in service of others.

Reiki is totally safe, gentle and has a higher intelligence that directs where the body, mind or spirit needs the healing. Reiki can be used in conjunction with other therapies and medical treatments.

It is administered by lightly (although not necessary) 'laying on hands' and is based on the idea that an unseen 'life force energy' flows through us from the Universe to the client. If one's 'life force energy' is low, disorganized, then we are more likely to get sick, feel stress, and produce physical symptoms which could result in injury if not restored.

Reiki is a Japanese technique that treats the whole person including the physical body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki can be taught to anyone and is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement. Reiki has been known to treat effectively many ailments and works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve symptoms, restore energy balance and promote recovery.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Most if not all believe that Reiki comes from God, a higher Source, and any benefits achieved with Reiki is thought to and gives glory to the divine supremacy.

In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy. Usui realized that healing the spirit, deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. It must also include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. If you only treat the physical symptoms but they have an emotional and mental component then the condition will persist since the cause has not been resolved.

Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing in 1922, recommends that one practice ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony.

Reiki Ideals

Just for today, do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people.

Use Reiki Treatment Percepts for the improvement of body and mind
Founder, Mikao Usui

I have been fortunate enough to train under this Reiki lineage. Hawayo Takata came to Hawaii with the permission of the Japanese Reiki Masters and established a healing practice and a school to promote advancement and continuation in the western hemisphere. Takata picked some of her highly trained students and brought them to a master level in hopes they would continue teaching others the art of this healing.

John Harvey Gray, (now deceased), was her third student to reach master level (1976). He has a teaching institute in New Hampshire where his loving wife Lourdes Gray, Master Reiki, continues on with the call to teach and spread healing to her clients and students alike. John Harvey Gray was the longest practicing and teaching Reiki Master in the west. John has taught over 700 Reiki classes. John and his wife, Lourdes, have written a book entitled, Hand to Hand: The Longest-Practicing Reiki Master Tells His Story.

If you want to learn more about reiki, or schedule a treatment session either in person or from a far, please contact me. As a Master Reiki Practitioner, Reiki can be sent over time, distance and into the future. I look forward to hearing from you.
The Soul knows what to do to heal itself,

the problem is we do not listen.
