Everyday Healing Connections

As human beings, we are all transmitters and recipients of healing energy through compassion and intention, love, thoughts and prayers. It is seen in the simplicity of a much-needed hug to calm difficult emotions or situations, or the powerfully strong magic that can occur between lovers…it is mutual trust which regulates the degree a giver and receiver’s energetic channels open when compassion and intention creates a healing connection.

Showing Up

Holding SpaceShow up, Allow, Open and Get-out-of-the-way!

Someone asked the other day, what it is ‘exactly’ that I do, when giving a Reiki treatment. The answer that leaped from my mouth, without so much as a second thought was, I Show up.

Simple as that…I Show Up, I Allow, I Open; I get out-of-the-way and Hold space. Isn’t this what all of us do (or unfortunately, don’t do) when someone we know is in need, or in pain, or in conflict; or all the above?

Reiki is about showing up and making space for connection, for unfolding. It’s what we all have the option to do, on a daily basis, with the people who are in our lives. When we Show up as witness to events, or more importantly, as witness to emotions, to pain, to the very personal world that someone is experiencing…we allow that person room to feel, we allow them a chance to let down the walls, we allow them a place to bring their fears out in the open–without judgment, without explaining, without proving. It is within that space healing is created.

Reiki flows through all of us, we all have the ability to Show up, to extend healing energy…we all feel the calling to Allow, to Open and ultimately to Hold space. This, is the power of Reiki, it truly is within all of us.

 

Benefits of Reiki

As a practitioner of Reiki, I am often asked about the benefits one receives during and after a Reiki treatment. It is difficult to say exactly what one will experience as each session is different. But you can pretty much count on falling into a very meditative state. It pulls you deeply into your own consciousness, allowing one to connect with their own inner knowing. A Reiki treatment is like taking the freeway to your intuitive storehouse and finding answers.

I think the thing I hear the most when a client gets up from the table is, “Wow, I didn’t expect that”. Many experience colors, some experience dreamlike visions, all experience a sense of calm acceptance. Balance. Insight.
