What is Reiki?

Reiki is a non-invasive method of spiritual healing and self-improvement.

Reiki is non-invasive and is used holistically to restore balance in mind, body and spirit while promoting the body’s regenerative self-healing ability. Its healing energy connects us on an energetic and spiritual level where the healing work is conducted

Recipients report feelings of relaxation, happiness, empowerment, ease and relief from stress and pain. Reiki always offers a beneficial effect, including working in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to promote recovery.

How does reiki work?

Reiki heals by charging the recipient’s energy field with positive energy. The Reiki energy flows throughout the energy field in and around the physical body and breaks up negative energy. Reiki clears, straightens and heals energy pathways, allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

What types of Reiki do you practise?

I have been trained in the following forms of Reiki:

  • Usui Reiki (Levels I & II)
  • Shamanic Reiki (Levels I & II)
  • Holy Fire Reiki (Master I & II)

I love working with the Holy Fire energy; it became my go-to practise in summer 2018.

How does Reiki work with my Medical Treatment?

Reiki is a beautiful compliment to medical and therapeutic techniques. Those individuals currently under a doctor’s care should continue with their course of treatment. Reiki can be used to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

What’s the deal with distance reiki?

Distance Reiki is just like an in-person Reiki treatment, but done from afar. Reiki works on spiritual and energetic levels, neither of which are limited by distance. The Reiki practitioner acts as a conduit, tuning into the healing energy and sending it through naturally occurring currents of energy available all over the globe. Distance Reiki recipients experience the same breakthroughs as in-person recipients. In fact, some recipients feel the energy is more powerful because they didn’t receive it in person.



What is Shamanic Healing?

Shamanic Healing addressed the spiritual aspect of physical illness and emotional ailments by working with helping, beneficial spirits. The Shamanic Practitioner uses their own body and mind to create a bridge into the transpersonal worlds of the spirits. When that bridge is engaged, it allows the healing and harmonizing powers to flow and manifest healing for the client.

How does Shamanic Healing Work?

Once a client seeks our Shamanic Healing, the Practitioner connects and consults with helping spirits to determine if shamanic healing is recommended. If it is, the Practitioner requests direction as to what specific shamanic treatment or treatments are recommended. Working with the assistance of helping spirits, Shamanic Practitioners restore power and energy to their clients.

What form of Shamanism do you practise?

I practise Core Shamanism, a research-based practice pioneered by Foundation of Shamanic Studies Founder Michael Harner. Core Shamanism consists of the universal, near universal, and common features of Shamanism studied over years of travel and training by Michael Harner and Sandra Harner. Training in core shamanism includes teaching students to alter their consciousness through classic shamanic non-drug techniques so that they can discover their own hidden spiritual resources, transform their lives, and learn how to help others.

What are some examples of Shamanic Healing?

A few of the frequently used shamanic healing practices are:
– Power animal retrieval (restoring spiritual power to the individual)
– Shamanic extraction (removal of spiritual intrusions or energies that simply do not belong)
– Soul retrieval (reintegrating soul parts that have departed from a client)
– Shamanic drum healing (allowing the healing power of spirits to pass through the drum to the client)
– Passing on the power of the helping spirits to the client
– Psychopomp work (helping/guiding souls who have passed)

What’s the first step to Shamanic Healing?

Shamanic Healing begins with an email or phone call from a prospective client who shares their concerns. With the client’s permission, the Practitioner connects with helping spirits for advice and direction. The Practitioner will then share the findings with the prospective client, asking for their permission to proceed with a treatment. Payment is made at the end of each treatment session.

How does Shamanic Healing work with my Medical Treatment?

Shamanic healing practices are spiritual in nature. They do not interfere with any medical treatments a client may be following under a doctor’s care. In no way does shamanic work replace such medical treatments. Shamanic Healing does not diagnose or treat injuries or illness, nor can it prescribe medications. Shamanic Healing is in no way intended to take the place of a doctor’s care. Shamanic Healing is seen as a complementary aid to a client’s physical and mental well-being.

I’m a hesitant about Shamanism. Can you recommend any resources so I can understand a little more?
