About Chakras and Reiki

Our body’s energy system consists of 7 major chakras. The Sanskrit word Chakras- translates to wheel or disk of energy. These swirling energy centers store the energy of our thoughts, feelings, memories, experiences, and actions. It is essential for the chakras to stay open and aligned. If they become blocked- the energy flow is then restricted and can result in dis-ease in the body.
Our body’s energy system consists of 114 chakras. 7 of those are the major chakras that run down the spine. Chakras are like flowers with many petals. The colors of the petals are linked to the frequency vibration of the chakra. The lower 3 chakras are connected to the earthbound matters like survival, power and sex. The upper 3 chakras are connected to intuition, truth, purpose and higher consciousness. The heart chakra is in the middle to bridge the lower and upper chakras using love, compassion and empathy.
The word Reiki is made of 2 Japanese words- Rei-”God’s wisdom or Universal Higher Power” and Ki- which is “life force energy.” Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” It is the process of guiding this energy to release any heaviness or blockages, and to restore the flow, healing, and natural balance of the body’s energy. This will allow harmony in the body spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and energetically. The practitioner is not the source of the healing, but a channel for the flow of the life force energy to the client.
Reiki is not a religion. This is an ancient, complimentary, holistic health approach, but does not replace medical care.

What to expect during a Reiki session

There is usually a conversation before, discussing chakras and how energy can be affected, also any concerns, needs, and expectations that the client has. Followed with an explanation of how the session will proceed. The client will lie down on a Reiki table or may be seated. The practitioner will lightly place their hands, or hover their hands in different positions about the client’s body, allowing the energy to flow to the affected areas. Every Reiki session is unique to the client’s needs. The Reiki Life Force Energy will go directly to the area in need. The experience of Reiki for some, is sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat from the practitioner’s hands, but sometimes the practitioner’s hands feel refreshingly cool. Some common reports are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or sometimes waves of pulsations throughout the body. Clients may report a tingling, buzzing, or comforting warmth. Others report feeling great love, some see colors, or other visions. Many people comment on how comforting their experience of Reiki was. Recent studies have reported that clients often feel that they are hovering in a state of consciousness, while still aware of their surroundings. Some clients fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Many times the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for others, the first session in particular, may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation. Reiki is cumulative and for the people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Aside from the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to come forth as the day or week goes on: perhaps better digestion, a sense of being more centered and in control and less reactive, and sleeping better at night. A Reiki session can last anywhere from 30-90 minutes. Many people come in monthly for a rebalance and a recharge. I do offer a monthly Rebalance and Recharge membership with 60 minute Reiki sessions.
