Reiki, (pronounced Rey-Key), is an energy healing technique developed in Japan by Mikao Usui. Reiki is a Japanese word that means: "Spiritual (or Sacred) Energy." We are alive because life force is flowing through us and around us. Also known as Prana or Chi, Life force flows within the physical body through pathways called nadis, meridians and chakras. It nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. This life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted by the intense charge of our emotional state and the powerful intentions of our mental thoughts. This can happen either consciously or unconsciously. The thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field, and depending on their nature, they can cause a disruption in the flow of life force. These old, negative beliefs and programming can manifest as problems in the physical body as well as cause mental and emotional suffering. Reiki assists us in changing these thoughts and programming. The programs come from many sources such as our ancestors, our current (or past) lifetime, and from Collective Consciousness. Energy healing healing brings back wholeness by flowing through the affected areas of the energy field and charging the entire system with light. This is like increasing the wattage on a light bulb. By introducing a greater intensity of light, the vibratory energy field is raised which causes negative energy to break apart and fall away. Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, allowing the life force to flow in a natural way. It goes beyond treating symptoms; it seeks out the root cause of the disruption and helps to heal on all levels. This restores balance to the entire Mind-Body-Spirit system, allowing the vital energy to flow freely and naturally.
Benefits of Reiki
We each experience Energy Healing in a very personal way. Reiki works into the entire system safely and quickly. It accelerates the body's ability to heal and may enhance the function of the immune system. Many people feel a wonderful sense of peace. Others experience a permanent rising of their consciousness. Every session is unique, surprising and always amazing. Karmic deposits can be rooted out, old emotions can be released, and attachments of all kinds can be cleared. How much this happens depends on the degree to which a person shows up with openness, intention, and willingness to transform. When the client is open, receptive, has strong intention, and is willing to self-heal, the treatment can be very powerful. It's an effective way to move through difficulty, access profound realizations and create vibrational change. Using Reiki along with other forms of healing can help us to maintain excellent health and well-being. This is a precise modality for balancing energies throughout the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dynamic. While you are fully clothed and relaxed on a comfortable bodywork table, the therapist uses a specific pattern of hand placements on the body (both front and back). Some of the results we've seen from Reiki include:
Deep and profound levels of relaxation
Renewed sense of mental peace
Decompression from stress
Release of fears and emotional blocks
Clearing of old programming & beliefs
Higher energetic & spiritual vibration
Renewed sense of connection with life
Release of karmic deposits
Clearing of old attachments
Increased Awareness, Creativity and Vitality
Works in the causal levels of dis-ease and personal problems
Helps people remember who they really are
Reiki Master Teacher, SLO
Angela Bothwell, Reiki Master Teacher, has been practicing and teaching Meditation and Reiki for over 15 years. As part of her study, Angela participated in long-meditation on five separate occasions. This involved continuous meditation rounds for 10 days to 6 weeks at a time. Three of these long meditation sessions were in Chaing Mai, Thailand. During this time in Thailand she was fortunate to train directly in a rare form of Native-Buddhist Shamanic healing arts. Angela still meditates every day using Sanskrit Bija Mantras. As an empath, Angela has the ability to listen and work intuitively, allowing the Physical / Mental / Emotional / Spiritual bodies of each person to speak for themselves. Her hands are tuned to scan for problem areas and read the main energy centers (chakras). The chakras of each person often communicate where the imbalance is, what needs to learned or realized, and what the deeper, unfolding spiritual correlation may be. They also show where the energy needs to open, renew and re-align itself. Angela listens carefully to this silent, subtle information and helps the client to tap into their own higher wisdom. Often, the most powerful answers come from the client themselves, when given space to enter into a higher state of consciousness. Angela creates this space and allows the Reiki to move in the direction that each person may need in that moment.
Please allow flexible time. Some sessions run long.
Although beneficial results happen with just one treatment, three sessions (one week apart) is highly recommended. Each treatment builds on the last and works through deeper layers. For maximum results or more difficult issues, plan for three.
