ReiKi/Distance Reiki by Becky La Plante, L.A.c.
"Rei" as I was taught means the sun, wisdom, great mystery and "Ki" means Qi, Chi, or energy, sometimes called universal life force. Energy is in everything and may be dense and formed or like steam and not easily seen. Some Reiki systems call on beings of devine light and healing to aid the practitioner in the healing process.
Although, I don't talk about Reiki much to my patients, I was given the gift of attunement of at the age of 17 by Dawn Albozak, my attuner who was very generous to trade her time and energy for what little I had to offer. I did not take the "Master" class and still have no calling to attune others, as there are plenty of people out there who offer that service. I started practicing, learning, and understanding this universal life force "Reiki" after my attunement and discovered acupuncture and then Niasziih (pronounced Nia-Z-I). Understanding energy, the meridians, the organs, and the connection of mind body and spirit is a life time art.
The Reiki practitioner uses their hands to manipulate this energy bringing it to places where it is deficient and dispersing it in places where it is excess. As I was taught, the practitioner would work as a bridge or a conduit with the Chakras and aid in bringing the body back into balance. It helps heat and blood move into the areas where people may be disconnected, or very tense, of which in turn aids the organs, muscles, and nervous system in working properly. Reiki also helps the person connect to their own spirit, joy and purpose.
Because we are all connected and there are no limits in time and space in the spirit world, Reiki can be practice from a distance without the client being in the same room with the practitioner. Reiki practitioners are attuned and trained to practice Reiki from a distance.
Reiki in person is very simalar to acupressure, acupuncture with out the needles, and qi gong. It is unknown if the energy is used from the own person's energy feild and just balanced or transfered from the outside energy from nature and the earth to the client.
Reiki and healing sessions without acupuncture are $100 per session.
