~ Reiki Principles
The word Reiki, (pronounced “ray-key”) is made up of two Japanese words. Rei which means "God's Wisdom" or the "Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". This spiritually guided life force energy activates our natural healing abilities in the body, mind & spirit. It attempts to set all these aspects of your being in harmonious balance by allowing you to absorb more universal energy.
Reiki originated in Tibet and was rediscovered in the 19th century by Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. The Usui System of Natural Healing was formed and this is the Reiki that Christie uses in her sessions. This treatment is done with the client wearing comfortable clothing with minimal touch from the practitioner. You can expect to become very relaxed in your session. Reiki can assist with all types of healing and can relieve aches and pains rather quickly. It has a positive influence on spiritual growth and mental clarity.
Reiki will affect each person differently, but will always be guided to what the receiver needs. Reiki is always safe but should never replace conventional medicine. These two modalities work very well together for those illnesses or ailments that are more serious.
Treatment time usually lasts 50 minutes, with approximately 10 minutes at the end of your session to talk about your experience and where Christie will share her thoughts with you. Crystals, gemstones and/or essential oils are used in almost every session.
Distant Reiki – Reiki while you’re at home. I’ll set my table up like I normally do, use music and crystals and oils as if you’re in the room with me. You can be at home, on your bed or laying on your couch. If you have music and essential oils to use that would be lovely. We set up the time just like you were coming in. I’ll contact you before the session to confirm that we’re ready to begin. You can choose to set a timer and call me once our time is up, or you can choose to simply relax. I’ll email or text you after with any information that needs to be shared. We will set up a time to talk for 10 minutes to discuss the session if needed.
Individualized Reiki Classes
Personal instruction for all Reiki levels.
Differing from other Reiki Classes, Christie attunes her students privately through 4 weeks of instruction. You will meet once per week for 4 consecutive weeks. Each meeting begins with a discussion about Reiki and your experiences with your new tool. The attunement is given and you talk about what, if anything you felt during the process.
With one-on-one instruction the student is more inclined to open up about their feelings. Reiki is, first and foremost, about healing oneself. Some people feel uncomfortable about expressing themselves to a group of strangers. In a bigger class, some may tend to compare their experience to what someone else may have gone through. Life is unique to all, as is the attunement process for Reiki.
Please note that this is more about personal responsibility and growth. There is no “classroom” style teaching. You are expected to read the recommended books and literature on your own.
You are encouraged to receive a Reiki session from Christie first to see if your energy connects. Not all people work well together. Not all people need or want the same thing. There is no “right” or “wrong” way of getting your certification. Do what you are drawn to. What works for you may not work for another. Christie is one among a talented group of Reiki Master/Teachers in the area. If she is unable to assist you, she will help you find someone better to suit your needs.
Reiki I – $275
Reiki II – $350
Reiki III – $500
Books and hand outs will be given at the first meeting.
