EMOTIONAL BREAKTHROUGHS - be more present emotionally Reiki is supportive in processing deep difficult feelings like shame, guilt, regret, despair, anger, fear, turmoil. Through deep relaxation and calming of the spirit, buried emotions that are trapped and stored in the body as cellular memory can be gently released. Get to the root of emotional blocks, repressed and suppressed feelings, heal emotional triggers and sabotaging behavioural patterns at their causal level, and clear the old emotional residue from your system. Reiki opens space for people to feel what they need to feel to get it out of their system. When you live in the present emotionally, rather than reacting to a pile-up of unresolved past emotions, you can fully feel your emotions in the present time. This is being emotionally present, for self and others. Bring your heart into the present time, and you will truly be able to connect with yourself and the people in your life more freely, deepening all of your relationships. Reiki is a key to understanding yourself emotionally and to feeling emotionally free and healthy, able to express yourself and how you feel in each moment.  ​​

RESOLVE TRAUMA - process and release shock Reiki supports recovery from trauma and abuse. If you have experienced a traumatic shock or other painful event in your life, Reiki can help clear trauma and integrate healing, allowing for resolution and the ability to move on. Aids in processing independent and complex trauma, break trauma bonds and conditioning, and release dissociative shock. If you have suffered a trauma and feel overwhelmed by the cumulative effects of trauma in your life, Reiki can help you release it from your system, transcend its residue and clear its effects from your health and your life, and move forward.  

Reiki has a profound impact clearing painful memories of trauma trapped in the body. During trauma our bodies are in fight or flight response, and emotions are often buried as a defence and survival mechanism that helps one endure through a traumatic experience. Reiki helps unlock the memories for processing: once the emotions are opened up, we may allow ourselves to fully feel them and let them run their course through us, and the pain of the memory is released and moved out of the body. Unprocessed trauma lives in the body and the pain of traumatic memories trapped inside causes tension. There is a link between trauma and health and when we heal trauma at cellular level, it is a great step towards healing from cumulative effects of trauma  Gentle and powerful therapy for people who have experienced individual or collective traumas.​​​

FORGIVENESS - purify the heart space Heal wounded feelings and clear experiences like betrayal, heartbreak, and loss from your system.  Release grudges, resentments, blame, and negative emotional dynamics. Acknowledge the traumas and trials of all parties involved. Change how you feel about an issue that has been bothering you.  If you are having trouble moving on from emotional wounds, Reiki can help you by providing a more objective understanding in order to let go of our attachment to our stories and release the burden of negative feelings through finding the ability to forgive. Find resolution, forgive self and others, and come to peace with issues. Clear your emotional energy and purify your heart by gaining closure.

OPEN & UPLIFT THE HEART SPACE Healing the heart creates space for more sweetness in your life, your heart feels lighter and more open. Cultivate a happy heart, let life in, and feel your heart opening towards joy.  Feel your love, compassion and empathy increase for self and others. Nurture self esteem and self worth, and deepen appreciation of others in your life, allowing space in your heart for lightness. Connecting with Reiki helps us access positive states of our consciousness, and we feel more confident and carefree, a receptive blissful heart. Reiki increases good feelings, resulting in a more positive attitude. Welcome others and make new connections, and practice loving kindness to self and others. The integration of our energy helps us to feel more connected overall. Reiki raises our spirits, we feel uplifted in the energy of love and light, and gain a more optimistic outlook on life.
