In The Light Reiki offers a range of services with the singular goal of helping people find balance and healing. Whether in phone consultations or in person meetings, I intend to instill senses of joy, confidence, and compassion.
The word "Reiki" is made of two Japanese kanji. I take "Rei-" to mean "respect" or "respectable" and "Ki" to mean "life force energy". So Reiki is how we "recognize and respect our energy."
Reikiis administered by gently laying on hands, lightly holding the body, and the directing of universal energy to specific areas associated with the chakra system and endocrine system. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Many recipients of Reiki report positive changes in their outlook, emotions, and bodily functions. After suffering with undiagnosable physical pain, I tried Reiki for myself and experienced such positive changes, in all aspects of my life. Since that time, I have been furthering my education about Reiki and the practical ways it may assist in healing. I have a doctorate in the History of Consciousness and am an award-winning writer and professor. I teach classes on the scientific study of the paranormal and have spent years working for indigenous communities. You may learn more about my academic credentials and accomplishmentshere. And if you're interested in how Reiki might benefit you, here is recent article.
Whether you have received Reiki before or are a first time explorer, please feel free to contact me to learn more about Reiki and how it may be of assistance in your life.
