The two Japanese words:
Rei meaning “God’s Wisdom or the higher power” and Ki meaning ”life force energy”
Blended is Reiki meaning-” spiritually guided life energy”
WHAT IS REIKI?
Usui Reiki history comes from Japan, Kundalini Reiki comes from Europe, so it’s a hybrid that blends specific direct energy to support healing, with energy to support healing from the core.
Usui Reiki- Japanese energy therapy technique that focuses on the healing energy aspect of Reiki- promote stress reduction and relaxation that supports healing of the body, mind, soul.
Kundalini Reiki- focus is awakening the Kundalini and balancing the chakras to restore energy flow throughout the body- its aim is spiritual enlightenment- stimulate self development.
WHAT DOES REIKI DO:
Both Reiki and Kundalini Reiki are focused on a vital energy force, able to empower the patient with energy and self-development experiences. Reiki energy comes from a higher external power. Reiki Kundalini is an inner force, being focused on the Root Chakra. Before this energy is guided to the major chakra energy centers and channels are opened so the access to the Universal Energy force is achieved.
The best way I can explain it is, Kundalini opens the pathway to help the flow of Usui, so we’re going to give the body the attention it needs.
Reiki can be done in person, as well as distance. I have had some really great results with distance, but it needs to be specific. Only really need 15-30 mins because it’s concentrated and specific. The receiver needs to be open- preferably relaxing when a session happens, and a follow up communication is key. NOTE: Can not be done when driving.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A SESSION:
It can be split into smaller sessions depending on the needs of the patient.
In person is best for the first time and patients with multiple issues
1 hr-full session (lying) - Overall full body, head to toe with focus on points that arise during the session.
45 min- (lying) full body with specific issues in mind, can be full body or shortened to concentrate on multi issue points.
30 min- (laying or sitting; distance) Concentration on main issues, can be multiple within reason
15 min- (sitting) (distance) One problem issue, relaxation, stress relief, energy boost.
Distance Reiki can be just as effective as experiencing Reiki in person- the Reiki energy “works” regardless of where you are located since it transcends time and physical space.
A subset of distance Reiki is sending Reiki to the “future” or “past”. Reiki has no boundaries, it transcends time and space. It can be sent to the future to help give what is needed in a specific time frame in the future. It can also be sent to help resolve the past, not for change. Instead, we look to resolve the damage, the emotions that remains today. Attempting to reframe the experience so that we can consider any difficult situation as a part of our path and learning experience.
I got my period later in life, I was 15 when I first started, compared to my friends who got theirs around 10-12. Before I got mine, I had these stabbing pains in my uterus, that felt like someone was taking a knife, stabbing it, and twisting like you were opening up a wine bottle. Fast forward to when I got my period, and that pain was magnified by 10, and the bleeding — crime scene worthy.
My cramps were so bad I was missing school, and instead of walking, I was waddling or throwing up from how intense the pain was. Not even to mention the bleeding, it was so bad -- I was better off sitting on the toilet for the duration of my cycle than use sanitary products. It came with a vengeance every month, but I never knew when it would come, dreading every day not knowing when I was going to be debilitated to my bed again.
I went on the pill for about 2 years and when that didn’t regulate me, or help with cramping or bleeding, I decided it was time to try something else. I went and got an IUD. The IUD made my periods slightly more manageable, I was able to go to work and power through my days, but had some long lasting side effects. After a year I got the IUD out, and have been letting my body naturally get back to where its hormone levels should be.
Olevia mentioned she wanted to try some distance Reiki on me after the billionth time I told her about the golf ball size clots that were exiting my body, the persistent debilitating cramps, and the lengthiness of my period, 14 days (yes— all days of flow too).
Olevia started to do distance reiki on me prior to my period, and then I let her know what my symptoms were, and she would work on the problem areas. The first month, I noticed that she was breaking up the masses in my uterus, because I could feel the relief, as I went to the bathroom my body expelled 4 clots, and I had less cramping, my period lasted 8 days. A miracle compared to my 14! The next month she did more sessions, this time my cycle was much less heavy, I had less cramping, my flow was heavy but manageable, I wasn’t going through a 3 month supply of ultra tampons in 2 days like I was, that cycle lasted 7 days. Then she started to realize that my cycle was always around the new moon, and I couldn’t believe it, I was using super+ tampons for my 2 heavy days, and I was able to use LIGHT tampons on days 4-6. I haven’t been able to use light tampons… ever! I’m able to be productive in my day to day life, I can go to the gym, I can walk, I can go to work without being in pain. She gave me my life back.
Olevia has also helped me with energy bubbles. I work with a Special Needs student who is AMAZING, but very hands on and needs a lot of physical comfort. I had said to her “I feel like he’s a succubus, sucking all of my energy from me.” So she got to work, she started sending me energy bubbles and refilling them at a certain point throughout the day. I noticed that I was more patient, more understanding, and was able to go home at the end of my day and not collapse from pure exhaustion from the constant physical touch all day.
Olevia is understanding, diligent, and compassionate. She asks the right questions, and takes her craft and molds it almost into your own personal prescription. Her empathetic nature, and her medical background in OBGYN have done wonders for me, and I will be forever grateful to her for giving me my life back.
