What Is A Reiki Share?

Reiki Basics Series: How To Do Reiki

wellness-285590_1280Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch received her Reiki I attunement from Pamela Mauras of Ascension Healing in 2009 and from Karen Harrison, a senior licensed teacher with the International Center of Reiki Tradallas reiki master-teacherining, in 2013.

In this Reiki Basics Series, the Dallas Reiki Master shares Reiki techniques and answers Reiki questions to help new Reiki practitioners understand how to do Reiki.  She has seen countless Reiki benefits in her years of experience as a Reiki Master-Teacher in Dallas, TX.

What Is A Reiki Share?

Many people who are new to Reiki natural healing share a common question: What is a Reiki Share?   Do you need a Reiki certification to attend?  Although each Reiki Master will run their Reiki Share with their own unique style, typically a Reiki Share is an opportunity for Reiki practitioners from any lineage or experience level to get together and give and receive Reiki.   Usually at least Reiki I certification is required, and everyone who attends both gives and receives Reiki at the event.

At Peaceful Presents DFW Reiki Share, Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch emphasizes using intuitive guidance to help locate the appropriate Reiki hand positions.  She provides instruction on how to do Reiki and encourages event attendees to practice accessing spiritual messages during the Reiki treatments.

What Is A Reiki Share?

A Reiki Share is an opportunity for Reiki practitioners to give and receive Reiki.

reikishareEach Reiki practitioner gets a chance to practice Japanese Reiki techniques like Byosen scanning and to access and share any spiritual messages that come through in the short practice Reiki session.

In addition, every attendee receives Reiki from multiple people at once.  It is amazing what a boost even a short (10- to 20-minute) Reiki session can give! A Reiki Share is a great chance to meet new Reiki friends and practice Reiki with a live Reiki Master.

Children who have their Reiki I certification are welcome to attend Peaceful Presents Reiki Share Meetup.  Upcoming shares will be posted on the Meetup page, as well as on this blog in the side column.  Reiki Shares meet monthly at Dallas Meditation Center.

What to Expect at a Reiki Share:

  • Directed by a Reiki Master-Teacher
  • A chance to meet new Reiki friends
  • You will practice giving short Reiki treatments
  • You will receive a short Reiki treatment from multiple people
  • An opportunity to practice accessing intuitive healing messages for others

What to Bring to a Reiki Share:certificate

  • You don’t have to actually bring your certificate, but be sure you have received a Reiki attunement and have at least Reiki I certification if you attend the share
  • Dress comfortably and bring plenty of water to drink
  • You  might want a journal so you can take notes on any messages you receive
  • Some people like to bring healing crystals, cards, or other tools to charge with Reiki or explore using during the treatments
  • Be prepared to silence your phone and be free from distraction for the entire share
  • It’s OK to bring kids to the share if they have their Reiki attunement or if they are able to independently entertain themselves without causing disruption.
  • Please do not bring adults who have not received their Reiki attunement and who would not be able to participate in giving Reiki at the Reiki Share.

What to Expect after a Reiki Share:

  • Your body will integrate the healing energy you received.  Some people will notice only positive effects, such as an increased sense of calm and wellbeing or decreased pain levels.  Others have mild detox symptoms as their bodies adjust to the new energy.   This can include feeling sleepy or feeling light-headed.
  • Be sure to drink plenty of water and rest as needed both before and after the Share.  Stay grounded and know any adjustment period will pass.  Be aware to avoid ingesting toxins or otherwise increasing your body’s toxic load.  Epsom salt baths or saunas can also help your body process the Reiki energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need to have my Reiki certification or be attuned to Reiki to attend?
    • Yes.  Each person will practice giving Reiki at the Reiki Share.  A Reiki attunement from a living master activates your Reiki energy so that you are able to channel this healing energy for yourself and others.
    • If you are not sure if you are attuned to Reiki, please use our contact form to discuss your training and experience with Dallas Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch.
    • While Peaceful Presents values, honors, and supports all healing modalities, we will practice Japanese Reiki techniques and use Reiki only during the Reiki Share.  For this reason, please do not come if you practice a healing modality other than Reiki unless you have your Reiki attunement and can give Reiki.
  2. Do I have to stay the whole time?  Can I come late or leave early?
    • Because we will split time between everyone who attends, it’s always optimal if you can stay for the entire share.  Still, it is possible to come late or leave early.  You will be charged the same rate as those who stay the full time ($20).
    • If you need to come late or leave early, be sure to contact Dallas Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch in advance so that she can coordinate the Reiki treatments so that everyone is able to both give and receive Reiki at the share.
  3. Are kids allowed?
    • It’s OK to bring kids to the share if they have their Reiki attunement or if they are able to independently entertain themselves without causing disruption.
  4. Can I bring my friend who wants to receive Reiki but isn’t certified or attuned?
    • No.  Please do not bring adults who are unable to participate in giving Reiki to the Reiki Share.  This is not fair to the participants who take time to give Reiki to others in addition to receiving Reiki when it is their turn.  In addition, healing messages can be sensitive, so we would like to keep the amount of observers down and only have participants at the Reiki Shares.
    • Adults who are not attuned to Reiki can receive Reiki by donation from Reiki Fellowship Dallas  or book a session with a Reiki practitioner.
  5. I don’t see my question listed.  How can I contact the Reiki Master?
    • Please use our Contact Form to receive an e-mail response.




Affordable Reiki Therapy Options in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

Reiki is a beautiful energy that helps restore balance on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels so that the recipient can heal.Affordable Reiki Treatment Dallas
Receiving a personal Reiki treatment can be powerfully transformative and relaxing; still, it is not always affordable if you are on a tight budget.
So, how can you receive Reiki if cost is an issue?  In the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, there are several ways to receive the healing benefit of Reiki without breaking the bank.
  • Get attuned to Reiki yourself by taking a Reiki class.  I give myself Reiki daily, and I only paid for the attunement once (about $150).  I rarely need pain medicine even though I have a chronic pain condition, and the Reiki often zaps my cramps and headaches without needing any other form of treatment…. Plus, daily self-treatment enhances my overall wellbeing and helps me prevent potential health issues later down the line.  Learning and practicing Reiki is truly an investment in yourself!
  • Once initiated, attend Reiki shares to give and receive treatments.  Once you are attuned to Reiki, you can participate in Reiki shares, including my monthly energy healing circle, which I list on Meetup.  At these casual and friendly gatherings, you can give and receive Reiki from others who are attuned for free or for a love offering regularly.  Plus, you can share your Reiki experiences with others and learn from their experiences as well!
  • Consider distance treatment ($60 with e-mail follow-up, compared to $80+ in person) as an option for affordable personal treatment.  With a distance treatment, the Reiki practitioner sends healing to you over a distance, so you will not need to come by an office for your treatment.  Reiki is effective over a distance, and it is amazing to feel the energy working even when the practitioner is not present.  With this option, you will still receive a private session and a full hour of healing, but you won’t meet the practitioner in person or benefit from the power of direct touch.
  • Shorter 30-minute sessions are also a budget-friendly option.  Stop by Peaceful Presents walk-in hours on Wednesdays to receive a one-on-one 30-minute Reiki touch therapy treatment for only $30.  Several clients who have come with nagging physical pains have told me that the pain relief from Reiki lasted for days after their 30-minute boost, so even a short session can provide powerful healing.
  • Otherwise, the Reiki Fellowship (http://www.reikifellowshipdallas.com/) offers free treatments twice a month in Dallas.  Reiki Fellowship meets on the second Saturday of each month at the Dallas Meditation Center in RIchardson, and treatments are available between 10 am and 12:30 pm.  The group meets on the third Saturday of each month at the Kessler Park United Methodist Church in Oak Cliff and offers treatments from 10 am until 12:30 pm.  Arrive early for the best chance of receiving a treatment!

So, there are many options for cost-effective and budget-friendly Reiki treatment options in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Receiving an attunement and channeling Reiki yourself is definitely the wisest investment, since you can give treatments to yourself and participate in energy healing shares with others after you get connected.

Distance treatments and shorter sessions are also economical ways to receive Reiki, and the Reiki Fellowship provides free Reiki treatments to the DFW community twice a month.

Permission, Free Will, & Healing Work

Is it possible to send healing to an individual without their consent?  Can sending Reiki without permission cause harm?  What happens if you send energy and it is refused?  How can you tailor your practice to ensure that you are using your healing power in full integrity and according to divine will?  These are all important questions for any lightworker to confront.

ImageMost energy healers have a strong desire to help others, and few of us can resist sending healing light to the multitude of individuals we encounter throughout our day.  This is definitely a noble desire; still, it is important to realize that not everyone is willing or ready to receive healing from us.  Just as trespassing on private property violates human law, operating without an individual’s consent on the spiritual planes can violate sacred law.  We can take steps to establish permission and set pure intentions so that our healing truly serves the highest good of all, and not just our own perception of what the world needs (as beautiful as that vision might be!).

Reiki, a divinely guided loving energy, cannot violate another’s free will and always flows in a way that serves the highest good.  Because of this, it is always safe to send Reiki, just as it is safe to pray for another being.  Still, sending Reiki does not necessarily mean that it will be received.  Sometimes people have a higher purpose behind their experience.  On an unconscious or soul level, they might have chosen to experience ill health, difficulties, and even death to learn an important lesson or to help others learn important lessons.  Or, an individual simply may not be ready to “let go” of a dynamic that they feel is serving them.  No matter how much healing you send these people, nothing will change because they are committed to their current paradigm.

It is simple to establish permission when you are working with clients or individuals who seek out your help.  But how can you gain consent for a person who has not approached you or who is far away?  One technique involves connecting with their Higher Self.  This approach has the added benefit that you can ask their Higher Self for guidance on what will be most healing for the individual.

Meditation for Permission from Another’s Higher Self

Image1) Ground yourself and see yourself centered and full of light as you relax and breathe deeply.

2) Imagine a silver cord growing up from the top of your head.  Follow this cord up and connect with your own Higher Self.  Take a moment to feel her or his love for you, as your physical form merges with your Higher Self’s etheric form.

3) See the individual you are interested in sending healing to in your mind’s eye, and imagine their Higher Self floating above them.

4) Approach their Higher Self with your own.  Ask if you have their permission to send healing and take note of any visuals, thoughts, feelings, or sensations that you receive.  Ask for clarity if you are unsure.  You might imagine a traffic light.  If the signal is green, go ahead.  If it is yellow, use caution.  And if it is red, do not send healing.  Or try to see their face and physical motions.  Do they look happy if you suggest sending healing?  Or do they wave their hands as if to shoo you off?  This will indicate their readiness to receive.

5) If they grant you permission, ask them how they would like to receive healing, if there is a particular issue they need help with, if there is a particular technique you can use, and any other questions you might have.  Take note of the response and trust your intuition.  If they do not grant you permission, accept that and do not try to force healing.  You can always check in at a later date, as their opinion may change.

6) Thank their Higher Self and let it know you will send healing.  Draw down from your own Higher Self back into your body and ground into the present moment.

This meditation will give you a clear idea of whether another soul is open to receive healing and how they would like to receive it.  Operating in this way, you can respect the boundaries and free will of another individual in your Reiki practice.

Also, it is valuable to send Reiki to another person’s Higher Self (rather than to a particular problem that you perceive), because the individual’s Higher Self knows how to dispense the energy in a way that serves their highest good.  Of course, this is not always the way you would imagine healing needs to take place.

ImageWhen you send Reiki to another soul, you can also intend that if the energy is rejected, it is sent to heal the earth or to empower the Reiki world peace grid.  The energy may be immediately accepted, declined, or held until the person is ready.  Setting this intention means the love you send will not be wasted and will not violate another’s free will.

So, check in with the Higher Self of any individual you wish to send healing to, and create a clear intention so that you do not waste your power on someone who is not willing to receive your love.  We all have free will on this planet, and it is essential as lightworkers that we respect each other and surrender our small-minded conceptions of what another person needs.  In this way, we can truly be a healing presence for ourselves, our communities, and our world.

Enhance Psychic Powers with Reiki

ImageI became connected with Reiki shortly after stumbling onto my spiritual path. For most of my life, I did not have any type of spiritual belief system, other than believing that church was always boring. I was interested in so-called supernatural phenomenon, but tended toward science and rational thought.

When I received my first Reiki treatment, I could tell that this gentle healing energy had changed the way I saw the world. Colors were brighter, and I was enveloped in a soothing peace. After my attunement, Reiki began healing my energy system, and psychic powers gradually emerged. I am still surprised when new talents develop as I continue along my Reiki path.

Before Reiki, I was not in touch with my intuition at all, although I did practice meditation.  Reiki combined with meditation, practice, and psychic development training have greatly enhanced my latent psychic powers and can do so for you as well.

Connection with SImagepirit Guides, Higher Self, Angels

When you receive a Reiki attunement, you also receive a connection to Reiki masters who have crossed over and to your team of spiritual helpers.

We all have a Higher Self that guides us on our earth walk. This is the self that chose to incarnate, knows our mission and purpose, and knows our hearts and current situation.  Reiki helps clear your energy system so that this connection is stronger.

You may also find yourself interacting with enlightened masters like Jesus Christ or Kuan Yin. I personally have experienced a stronger connection to the angels and archangels. Depending on your individual makeup, you might find that you are able to discern your spirit team’s messages using psychic powers like clairvoyance, clairsentience, and claircognizance.

Empathic Abilities

It is very common for people who are drawn to the healing arts to also be empaths. As an empath, Spirit blesses me with an internal experience of another person so that I can help guide them or better understand their challenge.

For example, I may notice that I feel nauseated while the client is describing an upsetting situation in her life. This is my cue that that situation is not helping her digestion, and I can tailor my guidance to fit my impression. Sometimes, I will feel depressed when I am giving Reiki to a particular area, so I know that there is an emotional component to the problem and I can use the mental–emotional healing symbol to help clear it out.

Before I was attuned to Reiki, I did not understand my empathic abilities, and I actually “took on” other people’s stuff and thought it was my own. Once you are connected to Reiki, you will go down the path of discovering how to trust, develop, and deepen any psychic gifts that open.

Sensing Subtle Energies

Practicing Reiki helps increase your sensitivity to the subtle energy systems that undergird all reality. Sometimes I even see auras or special resonant fields around people, animals, or plants.  My hands have become acutely sensitive. I can feel energetic disruptions above my clients or when I am blessing and clearing a space. Sometimes, my hands will activate and begin sending Reiki just because someone needs it. I can sense the flow of this energy and tell when it stops and how strong it is. I also pick up on subtle cues from the environment.


I have developed the capacity to send and receive information telepathically, including with animals. The first time I gave a Reiki treatment to a dog, it was suffering from cancer.  I decided to try asking it questions to see what happened. It gave me very clear information about the type of diet it wanted using images that appeared in my mind. I was skeptical at first, but discovered that the food the dog was asking for was in fact recommended to help dogs fight cancer.

Now, if I want my cat to come home, I beam that desire telepathically, and he returns in about 15 minutes. You can also use telepathic power to communicate with people with whom you share a relationship, send healing, radiate kind and loving thoughts, and more.

So, those are just a few examples of the types of psychic powers and gifts that can develop when you connect to Reiki. It is a different experience for every individual, but it does seem to be universal that a Reiki attunement enhances psychic gifts in anyone who regularly uses Reiki.

Healing with Reiki Drumming

Reiki can enhance the healing power of any instrument or musical performance.  I have used it frequently to empower my percussion performances so that the audience experiences states like bliss, joy, and love.

ImageI was at a festival when I first realized that I might have what is called the bard gift: “the ability to utilize, increase, and return the energy of an audience such that their emotional states are altered to what the Bard is sending. In a strong Gift, the audience will see visions of the subject matter of the song or instrumental piece.”

Dozens of people were sitting around a fire and drumming in a drum circle.  I decided to hold an intention for the group and see how the drumming changed.  When I thought “Happiness,” the rhythm and energy became joyful.  If I thought, “Frantic,” we sped up.  As a sort of joke, I thought “Orgasmic,” and the drums continued for a second, then everyone stopped playing at the same time, as if they had just had some type of catharsis.

Later, when I was attuned to Reiki, I decided to send distance Reiki to every performance and intend that Reiki flow powerfully through me to bless and heal the audience in the way that served the highest good.  I would also mentally call on the four directions and Great Spirit to be present and create sacred space for the performance.

I quickly realized that when I did this, I could feel the crowd’s energy in my body.  I knew instinctively to play the drum (or actually, inImage this case, metal bowl) until the energy felt good, joyful, and light in myself.  Every environment was slightly different, but people always felt something special about my performance.  One friend who is clairvoyant said she could see rainbow beams of light emanating from my bowl.  I also made sure to use the distance symbol to offer the energy generated from the performance to the Reiki world peace grid so that through our enjoyment, we were helping to heal the planet.

You receive the connection to the healing symbols, like the distance symbol, power symbol, and mental/emotional healing symbol, through a Reiki II attunement, which I offer in the Dallas area.  These symbols greatly enhance musical magick!

The one time I had some trouble raising the energy was when almost everyone seemed really wasted.  Try as I might, I could not get the energy anywhere near bliss.  I had to settle with contentment. 🙂

I am also amazed at the difference in my skill when I use the power symbol to charge my drum before I play.  I just trace it on top of the drum head and let myself go.  The music is always better when I do this, as if some etheric drum teachers are helping me play beyond my true ability.

So, try using Reiki and sacred intention to empower your own musical performances!  It is fascinating to see how it works.  If you play a woodwind, you could trace Reiki symbols on your palette with your tongue, then imagine you are sending Reiki out with each breath.  For string instruments, charge the strings, the bow or pick, and your case.  Draw Reiki symbols on the keyboard of your piano.  The possibilities are endless!

What Reiki Does (and Does Not) Do

Over the past seven years, I have experimented with Reiki and learned a lot about what this healing energy does and does not do.  Based on my personal experience, I can tell you that Reiki does:

  • Lower blood pressure – I practice Reiki every day, and my doctor’s office was astonished at my low blood pressure.  Apparently this is rare!  A scientific study of Reiki has confirmed this effect.
  • Make life more pleasant – When I used the distance healing symbol to send Reiki to an upcoming job interview, I could immediately feel the special presence of the divine energy when I set foot on the campus, and even though I did not get the job, it was one of the best interviews I’ve had!  Reiki blesses practitioners with blissful mind states and an ever-present joy that you carry with you at all times.  It can even enhance colors and make nature look more beautiful.  Other people feel my energy field as well and say they feel more peaceful and calm around me (even if I feel differently within myself!).
  • Help with pain – When I have menstrual cramps, 10 minutes of Reiki helps relieve the pain.  I’ve seen headaches vanish or other physical pains go away after a quick Reiki treatment.  When I sent distance Reiki to a dental appointment, I did not need pain medication even though I had major work done.  Reiki has also helped me address emotional, mental, and spiritual causes of my arthritis pain.  I have seen pain vanish after I realize the emotional root and offer positive affirmations.Image
  • Heal animals – I offered Reiki to a cat that was not eating or drinking.  I dialogued with the animal and asked it what kind of treatment it needed.  It gave me a clear idea of the proper diet and told me it wanted to see the vet.  I could tell the animal needed more Reiki than I had time for, so I gave the owner a Reiki-charged candle to burn.  Once the candle burned down, the cat had returned to eating and drinking, and the owner was very happy.
  • Manifest the highest good – Reiki has helped me find housing, jobs, clients, opportunities, resources, and more.  Sometimes Reiki brings me something better than I would have ever imagined (like when I had a stint in a kirtan band in Albuquerque).
  • Open up psychic abilities – I did not have a clue about intuition or our natural psychic powers before my Reiki attunement.  Now I am constantly amazed at new skills and perceptions that open up.
  • Bless and cleanse a space – I can physically feel the difference when I walk into a home that has been blessed with Reiki, and others pick up on it as well.  Reiki creates a really peaceful, soothing sensation and can cleanse spaces.
  • Empower food – When I use Reiki symbols in the food I cook, I can literally see that the vital life force has been enhanced.  I’ve also seen a pendulum used to show how food vitality increases after Reiki treatment.  People really love my Reiki salads!

Although Reiki is powerful, i have discovered there are some things Reiki does not do:

  • Prevent death – Several animals I have treated with Reiki crossed over after the treatment. Image One dog even told me it wanted to go to the vet, knowing that meant it would be put to sleep.  I’ve also had Reiki-charged plants die.
  • Prevent illness and disability – Unfortunately, I developed rheumatoid arthritis several years after my Reiki attunement.  Of course, I can see RA as a healing presence if I am in the right mindset, but still, being attuned to Reiki did not prevent disease from entering my life, nor did it prevent physical disability and joint deformity in my case.
  • Cause harm – Reiki never causes harm.  The outcome of using Reiki may be different than what you’d expect, but the energy itself is pure love.
  • Consistently create instantaneous miracles – I’ve heard others have experienced miracles with Reiki, but I have not seen any healings of biblical proportions myself.
  • Always do what you think it will – When a friend and I had car problems on a road trip, I started sending Reiki to the vehicle.  As soon as the Reiki began flowing, the car started sounding worse!  Eventually an entire part of the car fell off, and it drove better.  That was definitely not the result I was expecting.  I also sent Reiki to a family member’s surgery, and she experienced a mishap during the event.  I thought Reiki would not allow such a thing, but it did for whatever reason.  Still, she was lucky that a specialist was right next door who could correct the error.
  • Help others if they are not willing to receive – Some people do not want to be healed of whatever ailment they are experiencing, and Reiki will not change that.  We all have free will, and sometimes disease serves a purpose in the life of an individual.

Reiki is a really great energy and healing modality, but it does not always operate in a predictable way.  What has Reiki done — or not done — for you?

Heal Our World through Energy Work

Although Light has already won the battle for the souls on this planet, wImagee currently stand in a time of transition where this may not be immediately apparent.  Many souls in the collective are trapped in fear and illusion, and it can seem that the planet has fallen into chaos if you get caught in this energy.  As lightworkers, we have a choice to come from love, which is spiritual truth, or to come from fear, which is illusion.

As our connection to Source deepens, we begin to radiate love and experience the truth of love as the power driving the universe.  We experience abundance and prosperity flowing from a higher power and know that this loving source will guide us Imageand protect us on our earth walk.  We are no longer susceptible to human manipulations that try to enforce ideas of scarcity or powerlessness.  We cultivate our capacity to rise above mass hypnosis and cultural control through meditating and aligning with higher consciousness.  We begin to receive our guidance from Great Spirit instead of TV or destructive mass thoughtforms.

Lightworkers have been holding space for true peace, true prosperity, and tImagerue love on the planet for countless generations.  We have built the energetic architecture for a sustainable future filled with wellbeing.  You can check with your inner knowing and feel that this is true.  We are truly walking into a time of flourishing for humanity, a time when the collective consciousness evolves to hold higher vibrations of love, compassion, healing, gratitude, prosperity, and peace.

What is physically manifest now is a reflection of the spiritual architecture laid by previous generations.  We have built diverse societies, decreased violence, opened our hearts and minds, and Imagelearned so much.  What will come to pass will similarly reflect the healing intentions we put forth each day.  In this moment we have the opportunity to continue assisting the planet in its ascension process by consciously sending Reiki, lovingkindness, and light to all corners of the earth. Do not get caught by fears of the collective or by illusions that undermine our spiritual power on the planet.  Continue to resonate with the highest truth and see all beings and all experiences through the eyes of love.

Meditation to Heal Collective Consciousness

1) Ground and center yourself, focusing on your breath.  Set the intention to offer healing to the collective consciousness.

2) Begin by visualizing your immediate environment.  Mentally go through your home and fill it with light.  As light of love, joy, and prosperity enters your domicile, it erases and clears any detrimental energy in your space.  Feel and know that it is so.

3) Zoom out to your neighborhood.  Imagine a powerful spiritual grid of light Imagesurrounding the neighborhood.  See clouds of fear or violence dissolving in pure spiritual light.  See the souls in the neighborhood filled with power and purpose.  Continue adjusting until it feels complete.

4) Now see your entire city and continue the process.  Imagine the light of peace filling the community.  Zoom out to your state, your nation, and finally the planet and repeat the process.  Use your imagination to bless and heal any discordant energy that arises.  You may feel it, see it, sense it, hear it, or smell it.  Use your personal power to transmute it until the scene looks and feels ‘right.’

5) Thank your spiritual helpers for continuing to hold these high vibrations for the planet and consciously ground your energy, rooting deep into the earth.  Repeat often!

Reiki and Meditation


Awareness meditation, or mindfulness, enhances your capacity as a Reiki practitioner. You can receive divine guidance, gain clarity, and cultivate energetic sensitivity through centering and grounding daily meditation.

Reiki healing meditation involves visualizing loving energy and light and best outcomes for world events, friends and family, animals, etc.

Guidance meditation involves building a relationship with an enlightened spiritual being by sending them Reiki.

Reiki Self Healing for Rheumatoid Arthritis

 With some modifications, Reiki can provide pain relief and deep healing for rheumatoid arthritis.  Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing technique that allows the practitioner to access a divine healing consciousness.  Reiki has been clinically shown to lower blood pressure and promote relaxation in the body. This is one reason it is so effective in healing.

ImageI practiced Reiki before I was ever diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I have continued my self treatments and have found that they are beneficial for relieving my short-term pain. in addition, Reiki has helped me to heal the root cause, magnetize resources for my well-being, and guide me to better health.

Reiki is passed on through a lineage of Reiki masters (like me!). When you receive in attunement from one of these masters, your hands are activated to transfer healing energy.  Reiki can be used to treat others, but it is very important to use it to treat yourself for the deepest healing. Generally, beginning Reiki practitioners are taught a series of hand positions for self treatment and advised to practice them daily.

With rheumatoid arthritis, the hands, wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, and other joints may become inflamed, painful, and stiff.  When my disease was at its worst, I could not use the Imagestandard hand positions because I could not bend my body in order to reach each part.  Fortunately, the divine consciousness that guides Reiki understands your intention. If you are not able to move your hand, simply intend that the Reiki flow wherever it is needed and know that that will occur. You do not have to be able to physically touch any part of your body in order for it to receive the grace of Reiki.

Reiki also guides you to address the deeper root causes of your condition. In my case, layers of emotional scarring had built up to create the physical pain I was experiencing.  Reiki gently brought each obstruction to my awareness so that I was able to process and release it, and over time, my pain has nearly vanished.

In addition, every Reiki practitioner has a team of healing guides that are connected to spiritual healing consciousness. These guides make every effort to help us become healthier and are able to answer any questions that we have. The connection to Reiki enhances our natural intuitive ability, so we become adept at recognizing messages from our guides. My healing guides directed me to the Paleo diet and literature on healing leaky gut syndrome (like this book, Arthritis: Allergy, Nutrition, & the Environment). Following their guidelines and doing an elimination diet has further reduced my swelling and inflammation and contributed to my long-term healing.

Reiki also lets us address ancestral contributions or past-life patterns that may be contributing to our current ill-being.  Often, we hold ancestral patterns that have been passed down through generations that contribute to states of disease.  Or we may have lessons from past-life experiences we have carried over into this one.  I have had several self-healing sessions where a seemingly random memory of this lifetime or past lifetimes has resurfaced along with an emotional release that allowed me to heal.  Reiki II comes with a symbol that is roughly translated as “no past, no present, no future.” This symbol lets the practitioner sending Imagehealing energy to any past life influences or root causes in this life that have contributed to the disease, as well as any future imbalances that might occur. This enhances the healing process.

Reiki can also enhance any medications, supplements, herbs, or treatments that you might take. Before using the medicine or treatment, charge it with Reiki. This will purify it, bless it, and ensure that you receive the highest good from the activity. Sending Reiki to your doctor’s appointments will help you to get the most out of the appointment as well as the most benevolent and well suited practitioner for your needs.

Any disease is a spiritual call for self-discovery.  Reiki helps relieve temporary symptoms while promoting deeper healing on all levels. This gentle healing energy can also enhance other options that you explore. Dealing with rheumatoid arthritis or any other disease is not easy, but Reiki can help.
