My Reiki Life: Jen G.

My Reiki Life by Jen Gerenraich

A couple years ago, I was going through a really tough time in my life. My business took a massive nose dive south and I didn’t really know what to do with myself. I went into a bit of a depression and I was trying to find my “true self.” I know everything happens for a reason and I have been a dedicated meditation practitioner for many years but, I couldn’t shake this funk I was in. I started to look inside myself and really ask “what gives me joy? What do I really want to do for the rest of my life?”

My Reiki Story: Brenda K.

As an ardent receiver and practitioner of Reiki, I find myself attempting to explain the practice to those in my life who have not yet experienced it in a way that captures its essence and power without scaring off those adverse to “new age” or mystical practices. I have heard Jerry describe Reiki as a massage for the soul, other friends and colleagues describe Reiki as the channeling of a healing energy, a practice that activates the receiver’s inner healing powers that have been deactivated by adverse experiences and states such as trauma or injury, and others speak to the balancing of the chakras and cultivation of life force – prana, qi, barakah. All of these things resonate with me. When someone asks me what Reiki is I generally mention various pieces of these explanations, emphasizing that it is a gentle, noninvasive practice, and offer them a Reiki session. People are always amazed at how relaxing, comforting, and healing a Reiki session is.

The Power of Intention with Reiki

As a teacher, the Reiki Level 1 can be one of the most challenging of the Reiki attunement classes, but it’s also the most fun. Walking in the students want to access the wondrous and healing Universal Life Force Energy that is Reiki, but they’re very disbelieving that THEY, mere mortals, can access and use something so seemingly intangible as Reiki. And it’s so amazing to show them that they can access this power on their own.

My Reiki Story: Guest post by Stacy A.

My Reiki Story: Stacy Armistead

When I heard there was this ‘form of healing’ that didn’t require touching someone, I thought “how can that do anything?” I was so intrigued I had to test the waters myself, so I signed up for a course. That led me to Jerry with whom I have since completed Reiki Level I and II.

Oh Mercury!

In the last week, the following has disappeared from my possession: a USB drive containing files of my Reiki manuals, my favorite black top that can easily transition from casual to slightly dressy if the need arises, and some vitamins that I had spent a pretty penny...
