Reiki is amazing

Why? Because when it works, it opens your energy centers. It increases awareness, reduces discomfort, and increases joy. At least that's how it works in my experience.

When I share Reiki, I feel like my heart chakra opens. I feel rainbows, glitter, and unicorns jumping out of my heart into the heart of the recipient. Ok, I exaggerate a bit. I just like to talk about rainbows, glitter, and unicorns.   People seem to expect it of me. Not sure why.

When I share Reiki I have visions and experience inner knowing. Frequently I share visions with other practitioners and with recipients. I believe that the practice of Reiki expands my awareness of other realities. This is part of the amazingness of Reiki.

The other amazing part is the reaction of the clients. Many times I feel like, "Hey, I'm not doing much. Does this really work?" Well, according to my clients. it does. Their amazement amazes me. They tell me how much Reiki helps. They tell me my hands are hot. Amazing. 


  1. Maybe sometime you can explain how Reiki and meditation wave together, if they do at all. Am I doing anything with my chakras when I sit in meditation? It sounds dirty (which I like) but I'm sincerely curious.

  2. Sure! Super question. To begin, and to be clear, I like dirty too. Nothing better when I'm frazzled or upset. Yay dirrrty.
    Moving on.
    I go into a meditative state when I do Reiki. Meditation & Reiki wave together. "Chakras" are a concept from yoga- chakras are energy centers.
    Reiki doesn't identify energy centers- and Reiki practitioners believe that the healthy energy will go where it needs to go. We don't direct the energy. We mentally step aside,and let the Reiki work for itself.
    So Reiki, do nothing. Just Reiki.
    When you meditate, you might try visualizing and cleansing your chakras. I like to picture chakras as clean spinning irridescent CDs.
    Thank you, dear reader, for your attention and curiosity.

  3. But I don't know where my chakras are.

  4. They run up your spine. There are 7 major chakras, and they start in your genitals. Root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown.
    There are many more chakras. Each joint, the moon, the Sun, and out to the cosmos. Your soul is vast.
    But please begin with the 7 major. Focus on those.
    Imagine them. Imagine them clean and spinning with vibrant humming energy.

  5. So, right up the center of the body like a turnpike.

  6. Up the center of your body: up the glands like a turnpike. Or a winding country road with lots of roadside attractions. Portals to other dimensions.
