Commonly Asked Questions

Reiki is a type of energy healing practice that originated in Japan.  “Ki” is the Japanese form of “Qi” which is universal life force energy, and “Rei” means spirit. The practitioner is a conduit to channel energy from Source (can be God, ascended masters, angels, guides, teachers, beings in higher dimensions).  Only the highest and best energy is channeled with the purest intentions. Each reiki symbol is imbued with a unique intention and purpose.  The practitioner has been attuned and taught how to use these sacred symbols to channel their energy towards different areas of the body based on what you as the client need most.  

Everything, including solid matter, sound, and even emotions in the body emanate a certain frequency.  When I channel source energy and send you healing energy with your healing and intentions as my focus, the energy within your body moves and upshifts from a lower to a higher frequency. Psychiatrist Dr. David Hawkins created a “Map of Consciousness ⓒ” to explain this concept.  We vibrate at a lower frequency when we are affected with disease – physical, emotional, or mental.  At higher frequencies, we can clear out pain, come to be in a clearer state of mind, often download new insights and come up with creative solutions to challenges we were facing that were not available to us previously.  

It’s important to drink plenty of water before and after a session.  Please do not come to a session under the influence of alcohol, as this may interfere with your experience.

Wear comfortable, loose clothing and socks, as you will take your shoes off.  It is also helpful to set an intention for the session, even write down a few if you cannot narrow down one.  I am always happy to help you come up with an intention as well. 

Prior to your arrival, I will have cleansed my entire home, infused the space with reiki symbols and energy, cleansed and charged my crystals and ensure that the table, crystal mat, and room are impeccably clean before your arrival. 

I prepare my own energy prior to your arrival to be dialed in, focused completely on you and clear of my own personal circulating thoughts, or interactions I’ve had with other people. Once I am in a neutral place energetically, I then tune into your energy before you arrive to see if any signs or insights come up.  

A session typically starts with us sitting down and making sure you are comfortable, with no distractions, as we discuss your intentions for the session – what you would like healed that day.  You will then get to read about each soundtrack I have and pick the one with the healing energy/frequency that resonates most with you.

  • Fourth Dimension Detected By Physicists The idea that there is a world fully connected to but beyond this world, in which time can be manipulated and does not operate in the same way, exists both in spirituality and in quantum physics.  In energy healing, the idea that we can heal across space-time derives from the belief we can access the fourth dimension in heightened states of consciousness and in our dreams.
