Reiki, Chakras and the Soul Star

History of Reiki

Reiki is taught over a sacred lineage by the Reiki Masters . We learn how to channel it after being attuned.  Then we go forth and share it with other people.

This ancient practice has been around since the early twentieth century in Japan.  A practitioner named Mikao Usui said that he had been blessed with the ability to heal without depleting his own energy.  He went to Mount Kurama and meditated for three weeks. Afterwards, he went back to his village and began teaching others about this healing technique along with the powerful symbols that needed to be used in each treatment.  

Usui used initiations called Reiji-ho to enhance people’s access to the healing energy.  These later became known as attunements. An attunement is a sacred ceremony between Master and student in order to enter each level of Reiki, in which the symbols are placed into the student’s hands in order to strengthen the channeling of the Reiki energy to others. Reiki Masters are attuned with symbols that allow them to initiate and teach Reiki to others.

Some of Usui’s students preferred to actually touch the patient and find out where the trouble spots were.  Usui practiced a technique called boysen scanning. He used scanning to find energetic imbalances and closed chakras. He had always thought that the laying on of hands was only for beginners.  Advanced practitioners are able to scan and transmit Reiki over distance.

Usui attuned several practitioners and a few Reiki Masters. After this, a sacred lineage was created, along with requirements that Reiki practitioners must attain to be considered for the next level of attunement. This sacred process and lineage, when followed as Usui intended, allows all Reiki Master-Teachers to be within direct lineage of Dr. Usui.

​Included in the Reiki teachings were five tenets that give us a simpler way to live our lives.  Usui was a reader of the works of Emperor Meiji. In the process of developing his Reiki techniques, Usui borrowed some of Meiji’s teachings.  These tenets are to be said twice a day at morning and at night. The five tenets are as follows:

​“Just for today I will not worry, Just for today I will not anger, Just for today I will honor all life, Just for today I will earn my living honestly, and Just for today I will give thanks for everything.”  

Reiki FAQ'S

For different people, it will feel like different things.  Some have a spinning experience, some see bright colors, some have beautiful visions, and some feel nothing at all.  You may also experience a warmth or a tingle depending on where my hands are placed and the blockages that need to be removed.

Even if you have a specific pain, your entire body will still be treated during a Reiki session.  If the Reiki is needed in one certain place, it will flow to that area. Your higher self knows where it needs healing and will direct the Reiki to go there.  If the higher self decides it doesn’t want the Reiki, it will block it from entering the body. Part of the “body scan” process at the beginning of a Reiki session allows me to determine specific blocks or patterns that lie within your physical body, chakras and aura. This information helps me direct my hands and also use Reiki “power symbols” to increase the energy transmitted to specific areas.

You will be lying on a treatment table, fully clothed, or you may be seated in a chair. For distance healing sessions, you may lie in your bed or on the couch. It is important, regardless of the circumstances, to find yourself in a position that allows the spine to be as straight as possible. This applies to both office and distance healing sessions. The energy healing session begins by calling upon your guides and angels to protect and assist you in the healing process. I begin by performing what is called “Boysen scanning” in which I run my hands over your energetic field, from below your feet to above your head. At this time I am able to identify energetic blockages  or imbalances that exist within your chakras, aura, and at times can see a specific situation, and at times am also able to receive guidance for you from the angels, guides, or spirit animals that exist beside you. The information received during the Boysen scanning process has the ability to shed light on specific behavioral or emotional patterns that you experience again and again in your life . When the scan is complete, I begin again below the feet to begin the Reiki healing treatment, with chakra and aura balancing. This process involves music, crystal healing (sometimes on specific chakras), aromatherapy selected just for you, as well as light acupressure to balance and open your energy centers, connecting earth elements with your higher self, and invoke all of the healing energy that is available to you through this connection of you, the earth, and the Universal energy. The session concludes with a brief discussion of what I observed in your energetic body, and any guidance or messages I received for you. You will then have the opportunity to ask any questions you like until our time together is finished.  As you may imagine, no two sessions are exactly alike! It is important when receiving a Reiki healing treatment to trust that all information and healing that you need at this time will come to you.

Reiki energy has the ability to erode and remove blockages from your energetic system. This includes patterns and behaviors that exist within the conscious and subconscious mind. Reiki’s potential benefits include:

  • Enhanced mental clarity
  • Immune support
  • Reduced pain, anxiety and discomfort
  • Increased awareness of your purpose and spiritual being
  • Stress reduction  
  • Assistance with creating or going through a major life transition
  • Increased comfort during end of life transitions

Reiki can also benefit your pets for the same reasons listed above, but can also aid in:

  • Understanding and reduction of behavioral issues
  • Increasing bond and cohesion between owner and pet
  • Detaching from traumatic experiences

Because Reiki is universal energy, it is available across all time and space, and can be sent anywhere that it is needed. Reiki energy can be sent to you, no matter where you are, and is just as effective over distance as in person. For a typical distance Reiki healing session, at the time your session begins, the Reiki energy will begin to transmit. I will provide you instructions to set your personal space prior to your appointment time.  It is suggested that you find a quiet space where you can be undisturbed for the entire time, plus additional time for you to “soak” in the beautiful energy that surrounds you at the end, if you so choose. At times I may suggest certain soundtracks or songs for you to play during our session together. If this is not possible, it is suggested that you play meditative or nature music for the duration of you distance healing session. It is not uncommon, even over distance to feel sensations or visions as listed above that many experience during an in-person Reiki session.

  • Enhanced mental clarity
  • Immune support
  • Reduced pain, anxiety and discomfort
  • Increased awareness of your purpose and spiritual being
  • Stress reduction  
  • Assistance with creating or going through a major life transition
  • Increased comfort during end of life transitions

Reiki can also benefit your pets for the same reasons listed above, but can also aid in:

  • Increasing bond and cohesion between owner and pet
  • Detaching from traumatic experiences

What is a Chakra?

Chakra is the Sanskrit term for “wheel”. These wheels of energy exist both within and outside of the physical body. Your physical body contains seven main energy centers which connect you to emotions and experiences that are expressed in your everyday experience as a human. These seven main chakras line up the spine. The lower chakras correspond to emotions and experiences in the physical world, and the higher chakras connect you to universal connection and truth. You also have seven layers of aura surrounding your physical body, which correspond to the energy in your chakra system.

Over time and with lessons and experiences, these energy centers and your aura can become blocked, which can interrupt the flow of prana, or life force energy that flows through your body. When such energy is blocked, it can lead to disease, emotional pain, and recurring patterns that ultimately keep you from leading a life of love, happiness and joy. 

This is where Reiki comes in.

As described above, Reiki is defined as “Universal Life force Energy”. This energy that is transmitted to you, the client during a Reiki session is of a higher energetic frequency than that which exists on the physical plane, and this planet. Therefore, when a Reiki practitioner channels this higher frequency energy to you, this can help to release and dissolve blockages that appear within your chakra system and aura.

Releasing these blockages and introducing higher frequency energy has been shown to invoke healing within the physical body, which can be seen on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Also, on an energetic level, letting go of old emotions and patterns that no longer serve you, creates space for new and amazing things to enter into your life.

What is Soul Star?

The Soul Star Chakra is the name given to the 8th chakra or energy center. Often Reiki and other energy healing practices refer to the presence of seven main chakras within the physical body and energetic system. You do, however, have many more energy centers throughout your physical body, including those in the hands and feet. The Soul Star Chakra sits outside of the physical body, approximately four feet above your head. Like all chakras in the energetic system, each is associated with a particular emotion. The Soul Star Chakra is the union of heaven and earth. It also contains information on past lives and soul purpose.
