What is reiki
shamanic reiki and
Hey, my name is Hali and I am a qualified Reiki Master and Crystal Healing Therapist. I am coming from a small country called Estonia, which is located in Eastern Europe. I have always been interested in the spiritual world and everything that is invisible and mysterious.
Time ago I had a mysterious life experience, which I believe was a sign of my true life purpose on this planet, I knew that this experience was a gift from the Universe and a sign that my life path is to help peoples in this life. Shortly after I took my first Energy Healing course and been fascinated by energy healing practices since then and educated myself to be a true Natural Healing Practitioner.
I also like to use crystals and gemstones while doing healing sessions. Crystals are powerful pieces from Mother Earth and they can release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.
What is Reiki?
Reiki means ‘universal life energy’ and it was re-discovered by Mikao Usui. As healers, Reiki energy channels through us from the universal life source to where, or how, it is needed for the recipient’s highest good. Reiki may be employed to provide relaxation, raise the vibratory field, offer protection, grounding, transmuting energy, and fill in any voids left with such shamanic techniques as extraction, cord removing, removing energy blocks, and balancing chakras.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
When disease-causing microorganisms attack certain parts of the body, reserve energy is channeled to meet these attacks. But if the meridians are blocked, then the flow of reserve energy is hindered and illness results. When using Reiki you cleanse the meridians, harmonizing energy levels and promoting a smooth flow of reserve energy to the areas under attack, thus restoring the balance. Reiki increases our energy reserves, preventing any possible future outbreak of illness.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
What is Shamanic Reiki?
When shamanic techniques are utilized, shamanic practitioners work in collaboration with spirit guides. It is as if the practitioners provide the “physical” aspects that spirits aren’t able to embody and practitioners are the intermediaries with the spirit world bringing back knowledge that is necessary for healing to take place.
Shamanic techniques are very dynamic. They follow a process of discerning what direction the guides want to take and putting aside ‘ego’ to be able to follow this guidance. It can look like traditional shamanic journeying with drum or rattle. It can also take other approaches such as singing, chanting, using crystals, moving energy, shape-shifting, dancing, etc.
Another important aspect of Shamanic Reiki is setting a clear intention. The intention is the direction that will be taken. We listen to the guides and then we work with the energy that connects us to all things.
Shamanic Reiki provides a powerful flow of energy and a deep integration for recipients.
Shamanic Reiki invites you to open your heart and let your intuition guide you. Reiki flows more easily when ego is relaxed, and the same is true for shamanism; and shamanism is founded on the non-hierarchical view that all life, not just human life, has consciousness. As with Reiki, the intelligence that infuses life empowers the shaman to transmute disease and harmonize imbalance. This includes the air we breathe and the winds that cleanse our planet; the waters we drink and that flow over the earth’s body; the fire from the sun that warms us and the fire of stars, volcanoes, deep recesses of the earth; the earth herself and plants, animals, rocks, minerals, and trees, as well as ancestral, human, and other spirits.
Reiki practitioners don’t do anything but channel or open access to energy. It’s the Reiki energy that does the work and indigenous shamans will tell you they simply channel or open access to spiritual energies to benefit others. The ability to heal comes from the elements and helping spirits. It’s not the shaman, but their spiritual connection that’s powerful. Shamanic practitioners are intermediaries, accessing the spirit world on behalf of others, themselves, future generations and the earth. We ask the spirit to guide us and channel through us so we can accomplish great results.
What is Crystal Therapy? (Laying on of stones)
The practice of laying on of stones is one of the oldest documented types of crystal therapy. The uses through the years have ranged from warding off evil spirits to increasing the healing times if wounds. In North America, Hopi Laying on of Stoney Indian Shaman would apply crystals and various stones to rid the members of the tribe of diseases. Ancient Egyptians would adorn both the living and the dead in crystals to increase their ability to communicate with the spiritual world.
As time has passed the popularity of laying on of stones has ebbed and waned. In modern times, the reemergence of crystals for healing purposes regained popularity with the increase of those involved in the New Age Movement, Neo-Paganism, and Wiccan in the 1970’s. Because the faiths they were mainly associated with at the time were under attack in the 1980’s and early 90’s, the use of crystals for healing purposes was, as well.
Crystal Healing is a powerful method of cleansing negative energy, clearing and balancing the chakras, affecting emotional release, and bringing light and healing into all the aura bodies. Cleared, programmed, and dedicated stones move the receiver's vibration into alignment with the planet and the universal grid. This results in a freeing of life force energy in the chakras and aura, a healing of the Body of Light, and a transformation of negative or dis-ease into health.
A laying on of stones healing can be quite intense. There is often a major energy shift during this type of healing. More frequent emotional releases, past life, and these life trauma openings and other transformative events. The healer's role in this is to wait for the release to end and to be entirely non-judgmental. After a session, there may also be a physical detoxification process that can continue for up to a week. Be aware of what is happening and again, allow it. The changes are always positive and are usually gentle.
About Chakra balancing
How Chakra balancing session work? Chakra balancing can be done through Energy Medicine. The Chakras run from the top of the head (crown area) down to the base of your spine. However, in energy work, we start from the bottom of your spine. The energy runs up through each of the Chakras along the spine like a tunnel. There are seven main Chakras and twenty-one minor Chakras, Energy Medicine practitioner’s primary focus is on the seven main Chakras.
Each Chakra is like a Spinning Disk of Energy. When our Energy is out of balance one or more of the Chakras are spinning too slow or too fast. Sometimes a Chakra will even stop spinning, which means you have a blockage.
During a Chakra Balancing Session, the practitioner assesses the flow of energy and removes blockages, as well, as evens out the flow from all the Chakras. If your chakras are balanced, in most cases you feel balanced and lighter. Thus, the Chakras are balanced. Chakras give off a certain color or vibration, which aids the Energy Medicine Practitioner in balancing your Chakras.
About Distance Reiki
Second degree Reiki practitioners learn and receive three symbols, one of which is the "distance symbol." When invoked and used by a Reiki practitioner, this symbol allows the practitioner to send healing Reiki energy across time and space. This symbol can also be used in-person to help clear blockages from the past, or across large parts of the body. Similarly, it can be used to cleanse neighborhoods or geographic places.
When practicing Reiki on someone who is not physically present, this symbol is used to connect to his or her energy. Distance Reiki works according to the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole. As such, invoking this law during a distance Reiki session allows the practitioner to link an object to the energy field of the recipient. I typically use the recipient's photo along with a healing crystal.
