Welcome to my Earthen Spirit home and combined practice of Reiki and Shamanism !
REIKI is a Japanese word that means "Divine Life Force Energy". It is an age old, hands on healing technique that extends from time immemorial. Though it was re-introduced to the world in the early 1900's by a Japanese monk named Dr. Mikao Usui, it's origins are shamanic in nature and Reiki is actually a form of shamanism.
Reiki is a spiritual practice, not a religion; though for some practicing in Japan, it may very well be. In its simplest form during a Reiki session, a person will experience stress relief and feel wonderfully relaxed. On a deeper level, it will work towards your healing intention (be it for mind, body and/or spirit) and is complimentary to any other healing modality or therapeutic technique.
I liken a Reiki session to an 'energetic tune-up'.
SHAMANISM is a direct path of knowledge and the most ancient of healing modalities dating back thousands of years. Still practiced in every culture around the world, it has survived the test of time simply because it works. The word “shaman” translates from the Siberian word "saman", meaning "one who sees in the dark", as a shaman is able to 'journey' through the mind's eye to gather and retrieve information for healing purposes and insight not based on what's visible to the eye.
REIKI SHAMANISM is an intentional practice of combining both modalities which results in a powerful new tool for the healing toolbox for both client and practitioner.
We are living in a shapeshifting world - one that asks all of us to do the same. It is time to re-write the stories of our lives, leaving behind what no longer serves; in doing so, we wake up and activate our own "good medicine" and it is these reflections needed now in our world.
As we evolve and continue to search for inspiration and healing, one needs only to look within. By re-connecting with the natural world, we can sustain the hope of a future where our children can live in peace and harmony and enjoy a healthy life filled with joy and love.
Be mindful of your thoughts for energy follows thought and thought follows intention. Our thoughts are our prayers, we are what we think. Offer gratitude for all things each day, several times a day. Act as if it's already happened; in doing so, we wake up this powerful medicine that resides deep inside, and is the simple key to manifest our healing intentions.
Whether you are looking for stress reduction techniques, wishing to break out of old habits or patterns or trying to heal old wounds (be they physical, emotional or mental), this type of energy healing is a non-invasive way to start you on a path of renewed health and restored balance. Perhaps you are hearing the call to awaken your own healing medicine, please be encouraged for anyone can learn. This ability lies inherent within each and every one of us. By learning to do Reiki yourself, you open a door to a whole new world of divine possibility. By learning shamanic practices, you have greater access to your angels, guides and power animals.
A Reiki energy healing session will relax you and introduce you to your own subtle energy field. Reiki Certification classes will further attune you to these subtle energies by activating your own divine DNA. Once you have learned the Reiki basics (Reiki I and II) and feel comfortable working with this energy, you may wish to learn the Shamanic healing components as well.
A Shamanic practitioner works in harmony with the spiritual allies of natural world to gain understanding and insight. When combined, practicing Reiki from a Shamanic point of view opens up a whole new world of healing potentials and possibilities.
Once we "acknowledge" the possibilities, we can 'access that knowledge'.
As we honor and embrace these practices of olde, we acknowledge their effective healing medicines which are in great need today. My practice is based on this ancient level of energy healing medicine as it not only honors my teachers and ancestors but Reiki's shamanic roots as well.
We all possess this natural ability to heal ourselves - all you have to do is trust your life force and let it guide you. When we set our intentions toward healing, there truly are no limits as to what we can accomplish on our paths to becoming healthier and happier human beings. You owe it to yourself to be happy; don’t postpone your health and joy!!
