What can Reiki do for me?

What can Reiki do for me? Blog by Earth Star Transmissions

I'm going to begin by saying that I am so truly grateful to have found Reiki. I should say Reiki found me for of course we are constantly being drawn and led to certain things as part of our soul's plan so know that when you get a niggling feeling that you need to speak to someone or go somewhere it is probably ensuring you are in the right place at the right time to meet someone, to experience something or for someone to tell you something that you really need to hear. There are signs everywhere when we slow down and become more aware of what we feel.

Reiki is a loving energy that is gentle yet transformative. I have seen so much transformation through my clients and Reiki students by bringing Reiki into their lives. It is comforting to know there is something we all have access to that can help us feel more relaxed, to lessen pain, to shift emotional patterns, to elevate us in so many ways. It is beautiful to receive Reiki healing and just as beautiful to provide it to others. I feel blessed to do just that through my Reiki Workshops and One on One Reiki Attunements and of course through my individual healing sessions.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energetic healing modality that has various styles but as I am a Reiki Master Teacher in the Usui tradition I can only speak from that perspective. Reiki was founded by Dr Mikao Usui and is a spiritual healing modality with Japanese and Tibetan origin. Reiki comes from the Japanese word 'Rei' which means Universal Life Force and 'Ki' which means Energy. Everything is energy so to begin to gain somewhat of an understanding of energy healing we need to acknowledge this. Yes - Everything is energy! We are energy, the trees are energy, every single thing in your environment is energy, and it all vibrates at a different vibrational frequency. So for example an organically grown strawberry is going to vibrate at a higher frequency than one that has been genetically modified or sprayed with pesticides. A person who is really happy and positive and looks on the bright side of life will have a higher vibrational frequency than that of someone who is depressed or is more on the negative side. Everything has a frequency, everything! Furthermore, the Universe has it's own levels of frequencies through each of it's dimensions. We of course are experiencing a 3D reality here on Earth however through raising our own vibrational frequencies, we can be here on Earth with our vibrational frequency at a higher rate such as that of the 5th Dimension. We can also connect with much higher dimensions though that will be the focus of another blog.

So to keep it simple, Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy that we all have access to. It is spiritual energy that we can call upon at any time. Anyone can do this. What makes Reiki different to accessing spiritual universal energy is that there are symbols incorporated into the teachings that serve specific purposes and enhance the healing. These symbols are provided through levels of Attunements that are given by a Reiki Master to the student. It is a handing down of the traditional teachings and holds a lineage in order to keep it as much as possible to its original form. Therefore, it is important to seek out a Reiki Practitioner or Master Teacher if you are drawn to Learn Reiki who can provide their Reiki Lineage. You would be looking for someone who does not have too many people between them and Dr Usui. The more people there are, the more chance of the teachings becoming altered.

A Reiki Practitioner is merely a conduit or channel for this energy and they hold the space for the healing to occur. The practitioner is not healing anyone, as all healing is facilitated by oneself in accordance with the soul's divine plan. The human body is always able to heal itself under the right conditions. Will everyone heal from every illness? No.....There are many key factors that play a role in healing. Firstly, the emotions play a major role in our health. What we feel, what we think creates ripples throughout our physical body and can create energetic blocks which can manifest into something more. Secondly, when we decide to incarnate onto Earth we create a plan of certain experiences, lessons if you like that we want to experience in order for us to progress, to grow to ascend. For some people, illness will be an experience they have contracted to have in order for this to occur. This may trigger their Spiritual Awakening or they may transition. As humans this can be difficult to understand but as we are all here to have an experience, one person's passing away will undoubtedly have an affect on those around them, creating change in their lives that might set them on a path they may not have stepped onto otherwise.

During a Reiki Session the Reiki energy will flow through the practitioner and out to the client. This can be done while laying on a Massage Table, Sitting or laying in a reclining chair or laying on a bed. Anywhere really. That's the wonderful thing about Reiki - it can be given anywhere at anytime. It's important to note however that as we all have divine free will we can never give Reiki to anyone without their permission or their higher selves permission. Once again, a particular soul may not want to get well and we need to respect that. The Reiki practitioner will have spoken to you prior to your healing session as to whether you would like a 'hands on' healing or a 'hands off' healing. Just as it sounds, it's a case of laying on of your hands on to various parts of the clients body to allow the Reiki energy to flow or holding them off the body. Either is perfectly fine and it's simply a choice to be made by the client and practitioner. Some Practitioners prefer not to touch the client and that is each persons choice.

During a Session the Practitioner will scan the clients body for any imbalances and the energy will flow where it is most needed. The practitioner will check in on the chakras which are energetic vortexes unseen to the physical eye but which are connected to the systems of the body thereby providing insight into various organs and areas of the body that may need to be addressed. These chakras are also connected to our emotions so it is interesting to see the connection between all things aka Mind, Body, Spirit. Reiki can assist to clear energetic blockages, balance Chakras and raise the energetic vibration of the client. Reiki is very relaxing and healing on many levels and as it is a spiritual modality it is not uncommon for clients to have experiences of a spiritual nature. When what weve been holding onto is released and we are in a space of stillness and peace, we are more able to connect with what we might not normally be aware of. Reiki is wonderful for raising the vibration, for clearing, for shifting of energy and becoming more at peace with what is rather than what we feel it should be. Most people cannot see the energy that is flowing through but it can definitely be felt by both practitioner and client. We each have different levels of sensitivity however, so not everyone will feel the energy at first. What they will all gain aside from whatever else they need is a deep relaxation. Everyone will experience something different but what I know is that what each person receives is exactly right for them. A Reiki session does not need to be held in person as intention is everything. What is amazing about that is we can send Reiki Healing to someone across the other side of the world. There are no limits to how you can work with Reiki.

What will I feel during a Reiki Session?

As discussed previously everyone is different therefore we will each experience what is right for us, based upon our level of sensitivity and what we need at that precise moment for indeed the same person will experience something different each session. We are ever changing, so our belief systems and level of openness to the session will determine the experience. This is definitely not a one size fits all scenario and in a sense I think what I love about Reiki and Energy Healing modalities generally, is that there is always something new to learn, to receive and to observe. What I also love is that as a Practitioner holding space for a client and being the conduit for the energy, I also receive benefits as the Reiki Energy is flowing through me so the sense of relaxation is very much present. Through this energy I am able to approach all areas of life with much more gratitude and acceptance for what is.

So now that we have acknowledged that we are each individuals with varying levels of sensitivity and that there are many factors that come into play when it comes to energy healing, here is a list of some of the experiences my clients have had during our sessions:

  • Warmth in feet, hands and throughout different parts of their body

  • A sense of calm

  • Deep relaxation

  • Feeling as though they are floating off the table

  • Seeing colours

  • Seeing loved ones who have passed away

  • Receiving guidance from their Guides and Angels

  • Feeling heavy like they can't move

  • Falling asleep

  • Feeling energy in their chakras

  • Sensing a presence in the room

  • Thinking I have my hands on their feet but I am at their head

  • Aha moments

  • Being taken on a journey

  • Ringing in their ears

  • Tingling throughout their body

  • Release through crying, hiccups, burping, sneezing, body shakes etc etc

So too with Reiki Attunements are there various experiences that take place. Becoming attuned to Reiki is an initiation and there is a shift that takes place. It may be subtle or it may be dramatic. No one experience is right or better - it just 'IS'. During a Reiki Attunement students will feel, see, hear or know certain things or they may not experience anything. Whatever happens is perfect.

If you feel drawn to healing and are looking for something you can use on yourself, your family, your friends, your pets, your plants and anything else you can imagine then Reiki may be just what you are looking for. If you are feeling drawn toward becoming a Reiki Practitioner then there is no better time than right now. The world needs you. The more you use Reiki the more it will benefit you and it is something that is poweful as a stand alone modality or can be combined with other modalities. For example I use Reiki with Seichim Energy Healing (Ancient Egyptian Energy Healing) and in Beyond Quantum Healing Sessions and during Guided Meditations.
