What is Reiki and Energy Healing?

Reik stands for Universal (Rei) and Life Force (Ki), so Reiki refers to the infinite universal life force or energy that flows through every living and non-living entity.

Reiki interacts with the subtle energy body of an individual. As a Reiki Practitioner and Teacher focusing on Usui Reiki Ryoho (Traditional Japanese Reiki), I help my clients and students turn inward, toward this innate energy within all beings and help to further unlock their own connection to the energy of all things.

Reiki is, in many ways, a journey of self-discovery. It is a journey inward, connecting to the subtle energies of our being and developing an intimate understanding and relationship to this energy.

One may think of this energy as our true, or higher self, or perhaps as our subconscious and it is within this energy that our honest self resides. Another way to think of this is to consider that all actions and reactions, all experiences, memories, traumas, beliefs…everything that makes up the collective narrative of who we, is nothing more than energy in form and motion. A body that is fluid, relaxed, and at peace is able to stay with the flow of this energy and, thus, our resistances are able to leave the body.

Conversely, a body that is under stress and resistance holds onto this energy and it becomes trapped within our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies.

Just as in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) illness is believed within a Reiki sense, to be caused by energy blockages within the body, and so by turning inward via Reiki, one is actually learning to turn into their own true flow of energy from within.

By allowing this energy to flow, either from healing sessions with a Reiki Master Practitioner, by learning Reiki for yourself, or by practicing meditation, breathwork, and other modalities, one is able to direct this energy toward healing all aspects of their life.

It remains my pleasure and honor to work with Reiki and Holistic Wellness and I look forward to walking this journey with you into your own path of self-discovery and liberation.

What Is Shamanic Reiki?

Utilizing the Healing Power of Shamanic Plant Medicines to enhance your Reiki experience

Rapeh is a sacred medicine from the Amazon which is composed mainly of ground tobacco from the Nicotiana Rustica plant. This tobacco is up to 20 times more potent in nicotine content than traditional tobacco.

For Shamanic work, Rapeh is a sacred medicine in that it allows us to dive into a deeper union with the energy of all that surrounds us.

Rapeh is administered into the sinuses via a traditional pipe and within a few minutes the receiver is met with an overwhelming state of calmness, with the mind and body going into a deep state of meditation.

Once administered the receiver will begin to notice a place of stillness that is often difficult, if not impossible, to reach with a normal meditation practice. From here, Reiki is then applied taking the receiver deep into a trance-like state of healing and rejuvenation.

It is important to note that Rapeh is NOT an illegal substance, it is not a psychedelic drug nor does it have any associated altered states of perception. Rather, this medicine allows the body and mind to finally take a pause, thus it makes deeper space for Reiki to heal the body, mind, and spirit.

To experience Rapeh and Reiki together is to experience energy healing in one of its purest and most profound combinations. Clients arrive into a state of deep balance and clarity from the Rapeh while being fully supported by the nurturing nature of Reiki energy. This is a profoundly healing and transformative experience and it is with love and gratitude that I bring this experience to my clients.

Additional Plant Based Therapy

There is a sacred relationship between energy work, meditation, and plant-based therapy and it is exciting to see that the world is moving into an understanding that there are therapies that can be incorporated into your healing journey to further your experience.

With proper guidance into these worlds, one may have profound and life-changing experiences as these sessions help to create a space where suffering can finally be looked at objectively and the ego & its associated emotions and traumas are able to be calmed enough to finally free yourself of these shackles.

Healing ceremonies can be facilitated with Marijuana, Mushrooms, or Rapeh and are carried out via Zoom or in person.

If you are interested in undertaking such a journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can begin the discussion.
