My Work With Reiki – A Pure Blessing

How little did I know when I first started working with Reiki. As a matter of fact, I thought I knew why I was interested in learning more about it but really, I had no idea what I would get myself into.

Over and over, when working with my clients, I am blown away by how fast Reiki works, and by how much it exceeds my expectations of what it can do.

Practicing Reiki has been an extraordinary lesson in letting go of my ego. Letting go of what I think would be best for my client, but simply trusting into the Divine Source of all life that healing will always be provided at it’s own pace, where it is needed the most, and only to serve the highest good.

One of my clients came to me with severe disturbances in her life, and asked me to guide her through a Past Life Regression session. For a variety of reasons, I don't use past life regression in the first session that we meet. My client was severely impacted by family trauma, causing a whole lot of hardship in her current life including financial issues, an inability to find and keep a fulfilling relationship, sleeping and eating disorders, plus trauma-related behavioral challenges in her children. When she entered my practice the first time, she was drastically underweight, deprived of sleep, plagued by anxiety and panic attacks, and just overwhelmed by completing daily life tasks. Only two sessions later she started smiling, came in happy and almost bubbling over by wanting to share how much better she felt already. After about six weeks, she had visibly gained some weight, her complexion went from very pale to a lively glow, her eyes had gained their shine back, and her anxiety was gone.

Another client scheduled Reiki sessions with me after her husband had died way too early, and left her and two teenage aged children behind. She was overwhelmed by grief and had a hard time fighting back her tears. She felt lonely, cut in half, like she had lost her vision for her life and her sense of belonging. The first session was energetically very intense. Only two weeks later, she showed up to her follow up session - with a big smile on her face, a loud “thank you” followed by “I feel like I have my life back”! Oh wow, I was so touched and happy for her!

Over the past two years I helped clients with fertility issues, helped them to dissolve unhealthy relationship patterns, overcome depression, sleeping disorders, anxiety, and addiction.

In severe cases I combine Reiki with hypnotherapy and take my clients into a safe, deeply relaxed and highly suggestible state of trance. If appropriate, I include healing crystals into Reiki sessions - selecting crystals to amplify the healing energy channeled to address physical, mental, and emotional challenges.

When things are not going well in your life and the same patterns keep appearing, Reiki can loosen the emotional chains holding you back, after which they can be released so you can focus on your purpose here on Earth - what brings you joy, and how to attain your personal power and take charge of your life.

People who open up blockages and let the energy flow through may experience an intense rush. People touched by Reiki Universal Life Force energy strive for self-improvement and for the higher good of all concerned. People become more loving with each other. Sharing kindness from the heart is possibly the noblest thing a person can do. Have the courage to live your light!

 

Crystal Reiki

Crystals have been used for centuries as tools for healing. They are selected for their variety of frequencies and properties. Crystal Reiki utilizes the frequencies that reside within the earth and amplifies them through the power of Reiki energy. The earth vibrates at a specific frequency known as the Schumann resonance. Traditionally this resonance is thought to hover around 7.8 Hz though it varies from region to region. Indeed, believe it or not, the earth behaves like a giant electric circuit.

This is interesting because science is beginning to understand that we are deeply connected to the earth's resonance. These frequencies are thought to impact our autonomic nervous system, brain and cardiovascular system. But not only are there naturally occurring frequencies that impact us, but also man-made frequencies such as wi-fi and LTE. Assumed that we understand ourselves as electrical beings, think electroencephalogram or electrocardiogram, and thus us being deeply intertwined with the global electrical circuit of our planet's electromagnetic field, we understand that it is very well possible that artificial frequencies such as the use of mobile phones can create interferences with our system that can cause imbalance. But also natural events such as peak solar flares can cause shifts in the earth's geomagnetic activity with effects on human health. Shifts in the earth's geomagnetic activity are correlated with hospital admissions, death from heart attacks and strokes, as well as many other physical imbalances such as depression, fatigue, mental confusion, and even the number of traffic accidents that occur.

How Crystal Reiki Works 

In a Crystal Reiki session, you  use individually selected crystals and place them in a specific layout around and on the recipient and then allow Reiki energy to flow through you into the crystals and then the recipient. Just as sunlight shining through a crystal prism creates facets of light, Reiki energy passing through the crystals will create a specific energetic resonance within the recipient that their body will then use to harmonize imbalances. The presence of Reiki energy amplifies the energy of the crystals and helps the bodymind of the recipient focus on specific areas of the body, conditions or levels of awareness that are ready to heal. In a Crystal Reiki session, Reiki energy is coming from above through the crown chakra while the crystals used in the session bring in a grounding energy from the earth. Together these energies work seamlessly.

Although crystals are considered a part of the mineral kingdom, minerals are less transparent than crystals and darker in color with a consistent chemical structure. Minerals are thought to strengthen the physical aspects of the body such as bones, tissue etc. Both minerals and crystals can be used to help balance the recipient in a Crystal Reiki session.

Crystals have the ability to absorb, channel, focus and emit energy. They can generate energy through a process known as the Piezoelectric effect. This effect occurs when pressure is applied to the crystal which then generates energy. In the same way, if a voltage is applied to a crystal such as quartz, it will bend or slightly change its shape. We all consist of electromagnetic energy. When holding a crystal, your frequency interacts with the crystal, creating a similar type of Piezoelectric effect. The crystal vibrates and the energy it creates can be transmitted to your own internal energy pathways.  The energy of Reiki will infuse the intentions of the practitioner and recipient as well as the energetic properties of the crystal to create a unique high frequency.

Reiki is not a massage. If you feel the need of receiving an actual massage to relax your physical body and loosen tight muscles, please call the wonderful massage therapists at Quiet Mind at 251.476-6463 to schedule an appointment with them.

Reiki treats the energy body, which then in return has a positive impact on our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing, literally enhancing and balancing the energy in each of our cells, inducing frequencies that allow healing, allowing our cells to stay healthy, and reproduce healthy.

Reiki may cause emotional responses which indicate that you start to release old trauma and heartache.

The effects of the treatment may not all be noticeable immediately but rather unfold over the course of one week. You may experience:

  • signs of detoxification including light headaches and unclear skin
  • deeper, more restful sleep
  • remembering dreams clearly
  • decreased desire for “comfort drugs” including wine, chocolate / sweets in general, and coffee
  • hightened awareness during meditation.

General instructions:

  • be open and ready to receive Reiki energy
  • provide your Reiki practitioner with details regarding your health history, any chronic ailments, or acute issues
  • children under 16 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian during treatment - consent for a healing session is needed by both parent/guardian and child

Sessions are recommended to last between from 30 to 60 minutes. During a session the entire body will be treated, no need to undress at all. I have my own treatment table and blankets to help you feel comfortable.

I offer Reiki Sessions upon appointment at Quiet Mind Massage & Yoga, or, if it would be more convenient for you, in the comfort of your home. I also offer distance reiki.

Call 251.447-8667 to schedule a session!

I’m looking forward to meeting you and sharing with you the Universal Life Energy.

Blessing your way always!       - Manja

Reiki For Children

Children in our modern world are exposed to many stress factors that even adults often have difficulties to juggle. These stress factors include long hours of learning and following behavioral rules at school, pressure to be successful, not being allowed enough time to eat mindfully while at school, consuming highly processed foods, being exposed to polluted air, water and pesticide residues on food, and being exposed to electro-smog to name just a few. The resulting symptoms are quite similar to the ones developing in adults: disrupted sleep patterns, eating disorders, anger, depression, anxiety, general nervousness, diminished self-esteem, inhibited capacity to focus and learn, again to name just a few.

ReikiHands

Reiki is a gentle way to restore and balance our children's energy levels, and thus teach them to relax and to be mindful about their subtle energy system from an early age on for them to benefit from all life long. When children receive Reiki, they simply relax and are willing to embrace with you this feeling of peacefulness that is generated. Reiki has a very calming effect, thus promoting relaxation and confidence. Children are able to unplug and get the time they need and deserve to tap into the Universal Life Energy.

Little babies can also get positive impacts of Reiki. It is helpful for soothing colics and for teething babies as the treatment will ease the pain. Usually children, babies, and teenagers enjoy Reiki because their bodies respond quickly to energy treatments.

Reiki Benefits for Children and Teenagers:

* provides a tool to cope with depression and anxiety
* improves concentration
* supports relaxation and sleep
* soothes pain and promotes recovery from injury, infections, and surgery
* calms and restores balance
* empowers self-esteem
* helps with conditions such as hay fever, asthma, and seizures

Reiki can be very helpful with attention deficiencies and hyperactivity.
Since Reiki works on all levels of the body - mental and emotional as well as physical - the body will be able to use the energy to find balance in its own way.

Reiki, originally developed and taught by Mikao Usui in Japan, is based on the concept of an universal life force, which flows in all living beings (and surrounds us as well known as the Self or the Divine or God or the one and only truth), and which we can access through prayer, attunements, alignment of our chakras, and then channel it onto others through our hands. The syllable "ki" means "life force", and it refers to nothing different but what is called "qi" or "chi" in other Asian, primarily the Chinese, traditions, the breath of God in the Christian teachings, and "prana" as known from yogic, and Ayurvedic philosophy.

Reiki is a simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is administered by "laying on hands". Reiki energy work is safe for pregnant women, seniors, children, and even babies. From thousands of individual experiences it is known to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and harmonize imbalances. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes depleted or blocked it comes to symptoms of physical dis-ease or emotional imbalance. The Reiki practitioner can channel universal life energy into the patient, or more precisely be the channel through which the patient draws energy in, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore harmony. For this reason Reiki works well combined with other medical or therapeutic methods to relieve side effects or promote recovery. Reiki works because it connects the universal life force energy with the body’s innate powers of healing.

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 or use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent to belief at all and will work whether you believe it or not. The energy will always go where it is needed the most.
