What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of hands on (or hands off) healing originating in the East dating back many thousands of years before the time of Christ and Buddha. The original name and its teachings have been lost over the years due to the traditional way of passing the information down between disciples via word of mouth. It was rediscovered in the 1920’s by Japanese Scholar and Buddhist monk, Grand Master Dr Mikao Usai. Dr Usai came up with the name we use today Reiki. The word Reiki is split into two parts – Rei meaning Universal (ever-present, present everywhere at the same time, spiritual consciousness, the omniscient wisdom from God or the Higher Self) and Ki meaning Life force (the nonphysical vitality that gives life to all living beings).

Reiki practitioners use their hands to guide Universal life force energy through the channels of the body known as Chakras. Reiki can be used to unblock or release stagnant energy within the Chakras and balance out the energy within. Reiki is completely safe and natural and can be used alongside traditional methods of healing. It is beneficial to help reduce stress, release stagnant energy, anxiety, fertility issues and pregnancy among many other uses.

My Lineage

It is important that you know who your Reiki practitioner has trained under. My lineage is clear and branches back to Grand Master Usui. I was gifted Levels 1 & 2 Reiki attunement under Master Teacher Tiffany Smith of Reiki Restore. Once I have completed level 3 Master/Teacher, my name will come under hers in our lineage and I will be able to train others to do the same.

I have always felt a strong vibrational, energy connection with the Earth and her beings and it is a beautiful component of my practice and services to be able to provide Reiki to pregnant people and their babies. In giving a Reiki treatment, both Mother and Baby can receive. Reiki can help calm the mind in preparation for birth and balance the Chakras for full mind/body alignment. I can provide Reiki in person by appointment, either in my home or yours and via distance. Please contact Earth Aunty to make an appointment!
