Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki is life force energy. This life force energy is around us at all times and exists within all organic matter. Plants, animals, and crystal all contain life force energy. Reiki healing is an ancient practice that has been called many things over the course of human history. It reemerged in the late 1800’s in Japan but is actually an ancient practice that has been called by many names throughout human history. In Christianity for example, reiki has been referred to as “laying hands”.
In a reiki session, the practitioner channels reiki to you to increase the flow of energy around the body. Though the practitioner channels reiki energy through their hands, as a psychotherapist, I use a no-touch technique to channel the healing energy to you. You can come to a reiki session dressed as you would for any psychotherapy session . Reiki can be performed laying down or sitting up in a chair and also though closing your eyes can help you focus on the internal experience, it is not required to receive the healing.
Since reiki is energy healing, this modality can help clear emotional blocks caused by past trauma that can create stuck points that can be challenging to address in a traditional talk therapy sessions.
Reiki works with the energetic, physical and emotional aspects of the individual to address imbalances on all levels.
Crystals have been used throughout all of history as a source of healing power. Ancient cultures all over the world used healing crystals and stones to align, clear and transform their energy, spirit and physical health. The metaphysical powers of crystals were no mystery to most ancient cultures and just in the last few decades the healing power of crystals is becoming more recognized and accessed.
Crystal healing works on the energetic body similar to reiki. Crystals vibrate at a certain frequency and we come into contact with them, our energetic body aligns with the stone creating an energetic shift in the person. Crystals are wonderful tools to use because unlike many therapeutic tools, they are passive meaning just having them in your space and on your person facilitates the healing process. You can relax while the crystal does the work.
