Frequently Asked Questions
Questions About Reiki
Q: What is Reiki?
A: Reiki is a Holistic Energy Healing Method. In Japanese, the word "Rei" means "Spiritual/ Universal" and the word "Ki" means "Life force energy". Ki is the energy flowing through all living things. Rei is the universal intelligence guiding this energy. Put together, Reiki means Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy. Reiki Practitioners are open channels for this energy to flow and are attuned to feeling energy differences within the Bodies Natural Energy System (Chakras and Aura). Reiki is given to promote the flow of natural energy throughout the body and release energy blockages within the Aura that prevent a harmonious flow. Reiki is safe for everyone, promotes relaxation and enhances the body's ability to heal itself.
Q: How does Reiki work?
A: Reiki works well alone and along side traditional medicine as a CAM (Complimentary Alternative Medicine), amplifying and strengthening ones own natural healing abilities. It works with the body's Natural Energy System to activate, release, transform and balance energy within the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies of existence. Reiki energy works with the negative thoughts and feelings that have created blockages in the flow of Ki. It flows through the Chakras/Aura, charging them with positive energy and raising the vibration in and around the physical body where the negative energy is attached. This breaks apart the dense energy, clearing, strengthening and healing the energy pathways to restore a healthy flow of Ki.
Q: What is my body's Natural Energy System?
A: Everyone has a Natural Energy System that is just as real and alive as the physical body. It is responsible for transforming, maintaining and flowing energy throughout the body. It consists of an Aura (energy layers outside the physical body), Chakras (energy centers inside the physical body), Meridians and Nadis (Energy pathways throughout the body like veins and arteries). This energy system is in direct correlation to your physical body, thoughts, feelings, and actions. A build up of dis-ease in the Natural Energy System can lead to disease in the Physical Body. That is why is it so important to keep up good energetic hygiene!
Q: How does Reiki work from a distance?
A: In Level 2 of Reiki Training, Reiki Practitioners are Attuned to practice Distance Reiki. Activated within the Practitioner are, "The Sacred Symbols" that enhance and magnify Reiki Energy so much that the intent for its healing is able to travel through Time & Space.
Q: What can I expect during and after a Reiki Session?
A: A Zoom Reiki Session starts with a 5 minute consultation to meet and to discuss the intent for the session. To begin the session, you will rest in a comfortable position. (It is helpful but not necessary to be seen thorough the screen). Relax and listen to Healing Sounds as both Danielle & Brittany work within your Natural Energy System to restore your natural flow of Ki. Allow yourself to fall into deep relaxation as this is the state of being where you are the most receptive. Every experience is unique to the individual and may be different each time as it depends on the state of your being. Some people are able to feel the presence of the Practitioners and the subtle movements of energy. Entering a deep state of relaxation, seeing colors and having inner visions are all common.
Q: What are the benefits of Reiki?
A: Reiki is for everyone! It is safe to use anytime, in any place and any situation. The intelligence of Reiki will re-train your individual energy system to run and operate at maximum level, benefiting you in exactly the ways you need. A single session will promote relaxation and a general clearing of energy, with effects that can last a few days to a week, depending on your life's experiences and ability to process energy. Multiple sessions are necessary for clearing specific physical, mental, emotional or spiritual issues as it allows more time for both you and the Practitioners to identify and release deep-seated blockages. Learning Reiki for yourself (Reiki 1) and for others (Reiki 2) brings unlimited, long lasting benefits that really enlighten and align you with your souls deep connection. Mastering Reiki (Reiki 3) is an empowering experience that fulfills an inner calling for spiritual development. You benefit by becoming more enlightened while developing within you the qualities that are in Reiki Energy.
Q: What does Reiki work on?
A: There are no limits to what Reiki can be used for. Common Uses: Sports (Injury and Enhancement), Surgery/Recovery (physical, mental, emotional), Cancer & Other Dis-eases (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), General Wellness/ Maintenance (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), Deep Inner Work/ Life Coaching (past, present, future), Goal Setting and Life Enhancements.
Q: How often should I get Reiki?
A: There is no limit to how often you can receive Reiki. Consistent Reiki Sessions will keep your Natural Energy System running clear and strong. At least 4 Sessions is a typical recommendation to really feel/experience the benefits of Reiki for yourself. Get Reiki anytime you feel run down, stressed, or anxious. When you need self-love, relaxation, or a boost of energy. Get Reiki before an important event and after experiences that drain you. The more Reiki the better!
Q: What is Sound Healing and how does it benefit me?
A: Sound is an ancient technology/tool that has been used around the World to assist in healing. Every sound has a specific vibration or energy frequency. Our body's Natural Energy System (Aura and Chakras) also have specific vibrations and frequencies. Certain sounds vibrate at the same rate as our Natural Energy System. When we are exposed to these sounds, our bodies start to resonate with the same vibration as the sound which brings our system back into its natural harmonic state. Some benefits of Sound Healing are reduction in pain, anxiety, tension, disorder, disharmony and soul purification.
Q: What is a Sound Bath?
A: Sound Baths are defined as deeply immersing oneself in sound waves. These sound waves are at a specific tone, vibration and frequency that positively effects our own vibrations and self healing abilities. These sounds are conducted with instruments like singing bowls, tuning forks, chanting and more. For our purposes we have created a Spotify Playlist of our favorite Hertz frequencies, Solfeggio frequencies, singing bowls and high vibrational meditation music to play during your Reiki Session.
Q: What are the benefits of Reiki and Sound together?
A: Reiki and Sound are very powerful tools to promote relaxation, stress reduction, and the removal of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual blockages.
