How I work
I learnt and use this form of laying on of hands mainly when living in the countryside, many miles from easy access to pharmacies and doctors.
I use it with remarkable and reliable success on small illnesses, injuries, pains and infections. It is a marvelous support to people and animals who are about to go (or trying to avoid going) on the long journey to the doctor or vet in the nearest town. People in this situation may need to wait for most of the day in the local clinic for a few simple painkillers.
And so my best local clients are the people for whom basic medical care is hard to come by – expensive, rudimentary and time-consuming.
I find it helps all conditions. It works no miracles (although technically all improvements are small miracles, I suppose). It is a wonder and joy to give and receive.
Please use responsibly
Because it helps everything, people can be tempted to use Reiki in place of medical care. You must get proper medical care if there is any danger of a serious condition, and do not use it as a substitute for unpleasant medical care.
I love offering this service. If you have a serious chronic condition, I recommend it as a tool for supporting your struggle for health. And for reaching a state of clarity and radiance in a difficult situation. In such situations, please feel welcome to make use of my sliding scale.
Reiki is both historically bound and universal.
It is the universal laying on of hands, or sincere prayer that is available to all living beings.
And it is a spiritual tradition with particular symbols and initiation rituals that have their roots in Japanese history.
There is a direct lineage of teachers and masters that stretches back to this time. They passed on the initiation lineage up to today.
Teachers transmit the specific energy of Reiki to their students through initiation and the use of sacred symbols.
When teaching courses, I follow the traditional structure and techniques, so that I maintain the lineage unaltered.
Reiki translates as Spiritual Wisdom + energy (Chi). And in this sense it is all embracing, and therefore open to all to use, intuitively, regardless of religion, lineage or initiation.
When working, I believe that this Sacred, gentle technique should be used intuitively, creatively and with both structure and freedom. It is like a dance or conversation between giver and receiver.
