Reiki Practices for True Healing

Through the teachings and practices of Reiki we discover true healing and a spiritual path to enlightenment. It's a path of self-discovery, self-awareness, and self-healing that awakens natural healing gifts.

The Japanese Origins of Reiki

Many people are unaware that Reiki (Ray-kee) is much more than a method of energy healing, it is actually a Japanese spiritual practice. Reiki offers a path to enlightenment that combines healing with meditative practices that illuminate your way forward.

While it is mainly known as a natural hands-on-healing method, this is just one element of a complete healing system created by Reiki founder Mikao Usui in 1920's Japan. Reiki is a Japanese word that can be translated to mean "spiritual energy", and the system of Reiki contains many practices for true healing.

The Usui Reiki system was created by Mikao Usui after he experienced satori (enlightenment) during an intense spiritual quest upon Mount Kurama. His awakening upon the sacred mountain filled him with complete peace and rejuvenation, while activating his spiritual gift of healing.

Mikao Usui longed to share his gifts with others so they may also experience inner peace, enlightenment and the ability to offer healing, so he consolidated his spiritual knowledge, wisdom and metaphysical experiences into a unified Reiki system that he taught throughout Japan, and with deep gratitude I'm able to share his wisdom with you.

All elements of the Reiki system guide us towards true healing. True healing being the kind of healing that comes from reconnecting to our true self, our spiritual essence, enlightenment. It's through the teachings of Reiki and its meditation practices we uncover who we really are, and why we're here.

Learning Reiki as a Spiritual Practice

My ikigai (life purpose) is to help you experience who you really are, and discover your own life purpose so that you can live a life you love - filled with happiness and fulfilment. Therefore, just like Reiki founder Mikao Usui, my Reiki classes teach Reiki as a spiritual practice.

In my classes the Japanese origins of Reiki are honoured and our focus is on personal and spiritual development. The ability to offer healing to yourself and others becomes a beautiful outcome of your dedicated Reiki practice.

When we become students of the system of Reiki, we learn tools that nourish our own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. We deepen our connection to our true selves bringing profound healing to our lives, and a natural sense of compassion arises with the desire to ease the suffering of others.

Through our daily, personal practice of Reiki Healing and Reiki Meditations, we begin to uncover the answers to our sacred questions.

  • We learn Reiki practices for true healing.

  • We gain direct experience of who we really are.

  • Our reason for being becomes clearer and stronger.

  • Our innate gifts become more apparent to us.

  • Our life purpose drives our decisions with a powerful force.

  • Our life becomes more meaningful and joyful.

  • We create a solid foundation that supports our ability to extend healing to others.

Reiki Practices for True Healing

More than just hands-on-healing, Mikao Usui's Reiki system utilises various elements to provide a multi-faceted approach to healing and spiritual development.

All elements in the system of Reiki guide us to true healing and enlightenment. Masterfully they approach this goal from different angles. True healing arises as we deepen our connection to our true self through the practices of Reiki.

Reiki practices for true healing:

With our daily, personal practice of these elements during our healing and meditation sessions, we begin to transform our lives from the inside out. We deepen our connection to our true self, uncover answers to our sacred questions, and gradually embrace the 5 Reiki Principles as a way of life.

You heal yourself, and the diseases of others, and increase your own happiness and that of others. That is the mission of the Usui Reiki Ryoho.

Reiki As My Teacher

It's difficult to express how grateful I am for having Reiki in my life. My initial exploration into Reiki had only one goal - to learn how to heal my beloved dogs. To my surprise, what I discovered was much, much more than just a healing technique.

You see, the more I've worked with Reiki the more my life has improved. Most importantly to me, I have awakened to my authentic self.

Reiki and it's meditation practices have provided me with a comforting, gentle path of self-exploration. It has been instrumental in helping me answer sacred questions such as "Who am I?", "Why am I here?" and "How can I help others?".

I've become increasingly self-aware, less judgemental, more compassionate towards others, and can love and accept myself. I've found a sense of patience and connection not only with the world around me, but with myself. I consider this to be true healing.

When one's mind is on the healthy path of faithfulness and sincerity, the body becomes healthy by itself. Like this, mind and body become one, and one completes his life with peace and joy.

Reiki As Your Teacher

I love teaching Reiki because I love helping people awaken to their full potential. The practices within the system of Reiki give you direct experience of your True Self, bringing you clarity and illuminating your path.

Practicing Reiki helps you stay in alignment with who you really are, and why you're here. As someone who wants to support people to step fully into their power and purpose, this is one aspect of Reiki that I absolutely love!

It is my intention that through my Reiki classes you're able to understand the core teachings and confidently perform Reiki Healing for yourself and others. But even more than this, that you are filled with a sense of curiosity and awaken to the possibility of knowing yourself at a deeper level with Reiki and its meditative practices.

Reiki has taught me so much about myself, I invite you to open your heart and mind and let Reiki be your teacher!
