What is reiki?
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine that originated in Japan. Reiki practitioners use hands-on healing to transfer universal energy through the palms of the practitioner, to the patient, in order to encourage emotional and/or physical healing.
Reiki can be described as holding space for your meditation and relaxation, while actively clearing any negative energy and pouring positive energy into your being. Some describe reiki as feeling like butterflies, warmth, pins and needles, or a rushing sensation. Reiki can help process deep emotion and be a very uplifting experience. It’s completely normal to cry, fall asleep, fidget, or sigh during a reiki session.

My first reiki experience
My tarot teacher highly recommended reiki as part of tarot practice. As a practitioner, it is important to keep your energy clear and grounded while doing psychic work, and reiki can strengthen those skills. I was a little skeptical of this whole chakra balancing thing, but I found an event that offered an aura photo session before and after a short reiki session. I thought this was a great way to see if this whole reiki thing even works.
Getting the aura photo taken was not what I expected! I was instructed to place my hands on metal sensors and stand in front of a black velvet backdrop. The photographer snapped the photo from a normal enough looking camera and pulled it up on her screen. “Blue and green!” she exclaimed, “that means you are very creative, good with animals, a great teacher.” Yup, pretty spot on, I thought. Time for my reiki session.
My first reiki session was only fifteen minutes. It felt like someone was stirring my soul up with a big wooden spoon. I could feel energy moving immediately. My future-teacher told me that she could see my throat and heart chakras were strong. Throat is blue and is related to communication. Heart is green and related to love. She explained that she focused on waking up my solar plexus chakras, which is yellow and related to confidence and power. And she opened up my crown and removed some cobwebs. The after photo of my aura was taken a moment later and wow! The results speak for themselves!
