As many of you know, I’m a huge believer of the healing properties of Reiki and what it can do for ones over all health and mind. Honestly, I know many people who would benefit from Reiki but they keep putting it off for whatever reason. So, today I’ve brought someone here who has totally reshaped my life (along with many others) to tell all of you about this amazing little thing called, Reiki.
Hi everyone, my name is Dianne Rombach, I became a Holy Fire Reiki Master/Teacher in September 2017 and started my own practice with a friend in October 2017 called Peaceful Mind Therapeutics in Omaha Ne. I am also an LMT in which I incorporate my Reiki practice into massage sessions when needed.
Dianne can you tell everyone what Reiki is?
It’s a natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self improvement by the “laying of the hands” by a Level II Reiki practitioner or Reiki Master/Teacher that everyone can benefit from. It is most often used as a form of stress relief and to help reduce anxiety. Many people have reported amazing results in addition to the stress relief, they’ve been able to reduce physical pains or completely eliminate illness as well.
How does Reiki work exactly?
It helps release stagnant or excess energies in different areas of the body system or chakras (and meridians) caused by excessive negative thoughts or emotions. Over time when these stagnant or excess energies build up in these chakras/meridians, they cause disruption in the life force energy (qi or chi) flow, thus causing a symptom which eventually turns to disease or physical pain. The practitioner is never depleted of their own energy due to the fact Reiki is channeled through their body and into the client’s body. It can never cause harm as it is meant to aid the client in whatever is most important to their healing process at the time. Sometimes just allowing the mind to rest is the best thing for the body.
When should someone seek Reiki?
Symptoms are our bodies way of telling us something is wrong. By the time a symptom shows up, we may have been dealing with these built up energies for quite some time but just didn’t know what was happening inside the body or energy field. When life force doesn’t flow correctly, the vital function of organs and cells can diminish. Some people come for just an overall feeling of well-being and some come due to an ailment of some kind that they cannot get better from. They’ve been through all kinds of tests, medications, etc. Reiki ends up being the key to helping their body begin to facilitate the natural healing process.
I’m around people all day and sometimes their (negative) energy clings to me. Eventually, as weeks go by I feel weighted down and in need of a good de-mucking. And by the time I’m finished with my session I feel like a new person. I can breathe and I feel totally defunked. It’s a beautiful thing.
Some symptoms experienced in this lifetime can also be something that was carried over from a past life. During Reiki sessions past life trauma can come up that needs healing attention. There are sometimes emotional releases from clients that didn’t even know they needed an area healed. It’s very freeing to them.
Can anyone have a Reiki done?
Reiki is for anyone or anything at any age. My youngest son loves Reiki, I give both my dogs Reiki to help them stay balanced and not so anxious. It truly is for everyone/everything.
When giving Reiki, we are channeling love and positive Reiki energy that flows through us into the client, whether that’s a person, animal or even our food or car. Reiki can be used on many things to give it a positive charge of energy. A living being must be willing to accept and receive the Reiki energy or it cannot flow into them, it will be blocked by their own energy fields.
When working with animals, the practitioner must verbally or mentally ask the animal if they would like to receive Reiki, animals senses are more heightened, so they do not always need to be touched to feel the energy. It can be too intense for some animals, a practitioner always has to be aware of the animals reaction since they cannot speak up if there’s discomfort.
Reiki can be used to help those with a severe illness have a more peaceful transition if that is the stage they are at. It’s a comforted feeling of peace and love, it helps reduce the fear of what happens after we die. It’s like a huge energy hug or embrace.
Can you share some of your clients experiences:
In my own practice I have had clients come in that were just curious as to what Reiki was and wanted to try it. They end up baffled by what they felt and experienced during their session. But they ended up loving the results and return monthly for maintenance. Not everyone experiences the same feelings or sensations, it’s very unique to each client.
If you struggle with anxiety and depression you need to try Reiki.
One of my closest friends has been on an anxiety med for over ten years and just stopped taking them after a few sessions of Reiki.
I’ve had clients come in with physical issues that they could not find a resolution for so they figured this couldn’t hurt to at least try and they too are baffled by what they felt and how it helped relieve an issue. One example is with ear issues such as tinnitus, 99% of clients that come in with this issue, we discover they have clairaudient abilities that have been suppressed for years, in turn causing physical pain or constant ringing. Some have even become slightly deaf due to the ear issues over time. After receiving Reiki their ear issues begin to subside and over time they become in tune with their clairaudient ability and the pain or ringing dissipates.
I’ve also had clients with mental trauma like PTSD come in that are absolutely lost and feel as though they are in a black hole and can’t find their way out. Although this may take more than just a couple of sessions, it brings slow and steady relief to the client in which they had none prior to experiencing Reiki.
I had been on Ambien for over five years and tried many times to get off of it but nothing I tried (essential oils, natural supplements etc) worked. I didn’t seek Reiki for this issue but after my first session I noticed I didn’t even need to take my sleep aid. I slept better than I had in years. Long story short, I never refilled my prescription…..it’s been over 5 months now.
As mentioned previously some of the issues we experience now, can be carried over from a past life. The memories of past lives can surface in a Reiki session with visuals, feelings of dull pains, numbness, hot or cold sensations and vibrations are typical. It’s so specific to each individual case as to what they will experience.
Clients should always continue to seek the advice of their doctors. Never reduce or stop certain medications without consulting a doctor first, even if symptoms reduce.
