energy healing for realists

Glowy Gradient Abstract Brush Stroke Blob

re·al·ist /ˈrēələst/


a person who accepts a situation as it is & is prepared to deal with it accordingly.

it’s not a contradiction to be a realist, & love reiki, as i do. it’s possible to be grounded while being open to the idea of universal energy. on a journey of self-discovery & wellness, reiki is one way to support our healing.

i believe:

  • energy is all around us
  • prioritizing healing, care and community over productivity is an act of defiance against our broken systems
  • to accept ourselves as we are is revolutionary

i think of my practice as a way of holding space, bringing calm in a chaotic world. there’s something magical in letting go & letting in.

we all deserve rest, care & support. but we don’t always get it because we live in a capitalist patriarchy & that is exhausting.

but trust, you can be calm, grounded & open.

even when life is busy, you can feel peace.

let’s find more space, shall we?

the term “reiki” comes from the japanese words “rei,” meaning universal & “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things.

reiki is a high vibrational energy force transmitted through a practitioner, trained & attuned to that energy.

when this energy moves from the universe, through the practitioner, into the recipient, the body is best set up for healing.

the goal is to activate our body’s natural healing process. by giving yourself space, being open & allowing yourself to let go, you will leave a session feeling calm, connected & peaceful.

all of which makes it easier to move through life.

how will i feel during & after the session?

reiki is a safe, non-invasive healing modality. you may experience some of the following or feel nothing at all. either way, it’s working.

here are some of the sensations you may feel during your reiki session: heat or coolness, pins-and-needles tingling, vibrational buzzing, electrical sparks, numbness, throbbing & sleepiness.

but if you don’t feel anything, don’t worry! fortunately, the universal energy flows whether or not we feel any physical sensations. you will benefit from it anyway. what matters most is good intention & being open to the process.

listen to yourself after the session, hydrate & journal any feelings or emotions that come up.

i don’t get it. how does it actually work?

the process may sound new age-y, but engage with the treatment with an open, receptive mind.

i focus intently on supporting the recipient’s highest and greatest good, inviting & directing the flow of the healing energy.

reiki healing energy balances the body’s chakras—the seven wheels of energy located along the central line in the body’s fascia. these energy wheels are associated with physical, mental & emotional health.

reiki healing energy flows to where it can best help.

its power is only limited by a person’s willingness to open up to the support of this abundant energetic source.

how do i prepare for a session?

honestly, there isn’t much you need to do before, but you can make the best of the session by:

  1. be open to share anything you’d like to address such as heavy emotions, stress, mental exhaustion, mental health concerns, negative thought patterns, or behaviours that you’d like relief from.
  2. if you feel comfortable, share any physical limitations such as injuries, medical conditions, or medical history.
  3. avoid usage of recreational drugs or alcohol before the session.
  4. wear comfortable clothes..

about christine

Gradient Circle Lines Pattern

i come to reiki from a place of surprise, another sign that the universe is mysterious in its magic. i, like so many others, live with trauma, mental health challenges like depression & anxiety.

i was ready for deep healing. i was run down, exhausted & overwhelmed. life felt heavy, in-between the steady places i used to know: ending a marriage, adjusting to single mom life & finding a new normal.

but i found comfort in building community & supporting other women, especially those of colour. reiki helps me move through a complicated world with more ease, calm & joy.
