Reiki Is My Super Power


My Reiki student says she tells her kids, “Reiki is my super power!”  They are young, active boys but once she gives them Reiki at night they quickly fall into deep, peaceful sleep.  It got me thinking that Reiki is indeed a super power.  It can transform your health, emotions and outlook on life in miraculous ways. 

Good news - Reiki can be your super power too.  You don’t need to be from planet Krypton or be an Amazon or get bitten by a radioactive spider.  Reiki is available to everyone.

Remember how everything seemed magical when you were a kid?  The world was full of never-ending possibilities and exciting surprises.   At some point you were told, “ Grow up.  Life is hard work.  No pain, no gain.”  So you left behind your childlike wonder, imagination and optimism in favor of “the school of hard knocks” in a “dog eat dog world.”

Once in a while you catch a glimpse of that magic in a child’s eyes or when playing with your dog.  You feel nostalgic and think, “How nice to be so free.”   

Reiki can free you from your prison of societal programming.  You are entrapped by the belief that nothing happens without your endless hard work.  This belief keeps you constantly pushing ahead, trying to achieve more, yet feeling like you’re fighting a losing battle.  When you are channeling Reiki, Reiki is doing all the work.  You are simply the conduit for the energy to flow.  Through Reiki you become healed or feel better yet it was effortless- magic!  Once you are attuned to Reiki, there is an infinite supply of this universal life energy to draw from, always available to fill you up - magic!  

After a Reiki session clients sometimes comment that they hadn’t felt this way since childhood.  They forgot this feeling, lightness, joy, inner freedom, hope.  Re-awakening that feeling inside someone - if that’s not a super power, what is?

Reiki is a Winning Lottery Ticket


I love to travel the world.  It's amazing how regardless of what country I'm in, when I meet a stranger and say I do Reiki, invariably they say "I'm a Reiki Master too."  This isn't  happening in wellness centers or health food stores, but on airplanes, trains or busses.  Obviously everything is energy and similar frequencies are drawn to each other through resonance.  Still, it always surprises me, because in my world of frequency it seems like everyone does Reiki!

Even more surprising to me is the percentage of these Reiki Masters who don't use Reiki at all - not even on themselves!  In my mind this is like having a winning lottery ticket and just framing it and hanging it on the wall.  Why wouldn't you cash it in?

Afterall, Reiki is so simple to use.  I've even taught kids Reiki.  Once you are attuned, it requires no effort except the intention to connect to it and a gentle resting of the hands on or above the body.  Reiki does the rest!  It doesn't even require my full attention.  I give myself Reiki when I'm driving or watching Netflix.  No matter where I am or what I'm doing, I always have Reiki with me.  And Reiki gives and gives endlessly, as much as you want.  There is an infinite supply of this Universal Energy.

Everything is energy, therefore working on the energetic level is extremely useful.  If I have a headache or sore muscles, I give myself Reiki.  If I'm tired and need to be refreshed, I give myself Reiki.  If I'm sad or nervous, I give myself Reiki.   

The best part about Reiki is that it feels incredible.  The more you practice Reiki, the clearer your energetic system becomes.  As a result, you become more sensitive to the energy and it feels even better!  

It's too bad that many people don't believe in working with energy despite the fact that they use and believe in all sorts of unseen energy frequencies  - radio waves, electric energy, kinetic energy and so much more.  Imagine if everyone just tapped into Reiki and had this tool for their personal healing.  There would be an abundance of health, happiness and peace accessble to all.  That's my idea of a winning lottery ticket.
