What is Reiki?

By Maria Lodge

MON APR 27, 2020


Dear Friends,

During this time of Physical distancing while striving to remain Socially connected, Reiki has been a blessing for me.

Reiki is an ancient practice which allows the universal energy of love & healing to flow from the hands of a Reiki practitioner to a recipient so the recipient can use it for healing physical & emotional dis-ease.

What is Reiki?....... Literally, Rei & Ki means Energy!

Rei (Ray )= Universal Life Energy, Spiritual Consciousness, All-knowing, Energy from the Divine

Ki (Kee)= Breath, Life Force, Vital Radiant Energy, Energy from the Earth

The Ancient Healing Art: Usui Shiko Ryoho System of Natural Healing

  • It is Spiritual But not Religious (SBNR)
  • Channels the energy that is all around and within us, Utilizes Vibration
  • A modality to assist self healing of physical and emotional disturbances
  • Blends with all situations and intervention

In Level I Reiki classes students learn how to channel Reiki to themselves and others who are Physically Present.

Level II Reiki practitioners learn to channel Reiki to those not physically present.

The ability to give myself Reiki and to share it through time & space with others is what has made it so important & nourishing to me, now more than ever!

Everyday I send Reiki to all beings for healing & comfort during this time of great distress & to mother Earth!

I am also sharing Reiki during my Restorative Yoga Class & During Private Reiki sessions! Check out the Offerings for details ~ https://www.asanawellnesspt.com/offerings

While you are there check out all my yoga classes & the weekly schedule.

  • Smooth Yoga class is a practice appropriate for everyone which can also be practiced sitting on a chair and/or using a chair for support.
  • I have added an All-Levels Vinyassa class for those seeking a more physical practice with Sun-Salutations added to keep the body warm!
  • Let me know if you are interested in learning how to share Reiki! I will be offering Certification classes again soon!

Thank you for your tremendous support & for sharing your energy with me!

Peace & Namaste,
