Reiki...being a Universal force from the Great Divine Spirit, it belongs to all who seek and desire to learn the art of healing" Hawayo Takata

Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) Healing is an ancient Japanese hands-on healing art. It is a method of healing that is considered a form of bodywork. As an energy medicine Reiki supports healing the body, mind, emotions and spirit.

The Reiki Healing practitioner channels universal (rei) life force energy (ki) through the palms of the hands. The hands are placed on or slightly above the fully clothed body of the client. Being held in a specific position for about two minutes, the hands are then moved to the next position.

In Reiki Healing the practitioner is intuitively guided to each area of the body and what it needs, and the length of time needed. Usually the client feels a warm sensation or waves of energy.

Where there is inflamation, that part of the body may experience coolness. The body will draw what it needs for balance from the healers hands as they channel universal life force energy.

Receiving Reiki Healing Energy

When you are receiving Reiki Healing energy you will experience it as being gentle, loving, and peaceful, yet very powerful.

Receiving Reiki Healing Energy allows healing to happen on all levels - body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Reiki improves the immune system, relieves pain, releases energy blocks, lifts depression, supports deeper relaxation and sleep and helps in the grieving process.

Reiki Healing for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndromehas been researched and found to be very beneficial in relieving pain.

Reiki healers are humble, open hearted, open minded and in the moment. The ego has no place here. The Reiki practitioner’s only intention is to be a pure vehicle of healing for the receptive client.

Reiki Healing Session

Starting the session with a prayer helps me to set my intention and to call in the Reiki guides. At the beginning of a Reiki Healing session touch is applied to the front of the client’s body.

The second half of the session continues with warm touch to the back of the head, shoulders, upper and lower back, the backs of the knees, the backs of the ankles, and the bottoms of the feet.

By the end of the session the client is in a place of deep relaxation. Then I thank the client and the spiritual guides.

The body is in rest and repair mode after the Reiki Healing session and requires plenty of water to release toxins. It is best to stay relaxed for the rest of the day avoiding strenuous activity. The healing will continue for several days.

Being aware of changes that occur physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually is important. Honor the healing process by being gentle with yourself. The Reiki Healer cradles another human being in loving, compassionate energy.

The Reiki Healing session continues for about one hour. Lying face up and fully clothed on a massage table the client is healed starting with the head and ending with the feet. Turning over onto the stomach the healing continues head to toe.

Reiki Healing is a powerful yet subtle energy medicine that brings you back to wholeness and balance in body, mind, emotion and spirit.

For more than 28 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions.

Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn't matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same - to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me, it's best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you to:

Live your true potential
