Universal Life Force Energy
flow through me
For seventeen years I have been providing private Reiki sessions to individuals and as a Master, I have been honoured to have taught numerous others this ancient technique of energy body work who themselves have gone on to become Masters.
I am now focusing on teaching this wonderful tradition. Be sure sign up for my newsletter for upcoming classes.
What is Reiki?
Simply put, Reiki (Ray Key) is the transformation of positive healing energy through the hands of the practitioner to the client. The practitioner is a vessel through which this Universal Life Force flows and in doing so clears the energy centres (chakras) by removing energy blocks in the body and leaving the client with a feeling of deep relaxation. When energy is not moving smoothly throughout our bodies, it results in emotional, physical or spiritual discomfort and dis-ease. It is vital to our over-all well-being to keep the flow of energy moving freely throughout and around our bodies.
How is it done?
This can all be done without ever physically touching the client making it an excellent session for those who are either in a lot of pain or are emotionally uncomfortable with being touched (as with massage) . All you need to do is lay down on the massage table, cover up with a nice warm blanket, close your eyes and let the energy flow. The amazing part of Reiki is: since it is energy work, the practitioner can work on you without you even being in the same room! However, the effects are so wonderful in person who wouldn't want to try out a session?
There are four levels of Reiki that I teach:
Level One goes over the basic hand techniques, the history of Reiki and ethics. This is intended to be used on yourself, family and friends.
Level Two teaches you symbols that are used to increase the energy flow, long distance Reiki and studies more on the connection of mind, body and spirit in overall well being. Once you have this level you can hang your shingle as a Reiki Practitioner.
You will need to have completed Level One first before taking this part of Reiki.
Level Three is where you study more of the spiritual aspects, learn more symbols and talk about how to use other modalities along with Reiki. You will need to have completed Level One and two first before taking this part of Reiki.
Master Level will teach you how to be a teacher yourself. As you can imagine in order to receive the Master designation you will have to complete the other three levels.
I often will combine Level Three and Masters in the same course.
What sets the teaching of Reiki apart from other forms of energy work is your receiving what is called an attunement with each level. This is a symbolic ceremony the Master (me) performs for each student to activate the Reiki symbols in you to become a practitioner. In the Master Level you learn to pass the attunement.
Upon completion of each Level you will receive a certificate and a workbook for your future reference and review.
There are five main principals that Reiki practitioners are taught to live by. These are not a dogma but a way of life that cause no harm nor contradiction to any belief system. They are reminders to be in the moment, to think and live “Just for Today”.
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not be angry.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.

I never connected with the faith teachings of my family-of-origin and knew deep down that this left a void in my being. Reiki has allowed me to reconnect to my spirituality. It has given me the tools to find spiritual and holistic well being in my life. I feel more present and full now in my life.
Reiki has encouraged me to reconnect with and become more aware of the strength of my intuition. Now that I have this connection I am mindful of taking actions to nourish as oppose to dull this sense. The positive changes for my health have been countless. I have been able to decrease my caffeine intake substantially, and incorporate regular smudging and meditation into my life.
Last but not least, reiki has allowed me to harness my awareness of my physical being into a more constructive and less critical direction. I would encourage anyone who is even curious about reiki to try it out!"
