Harmony in Mind, Body & Spirit


Here is a selection of the most frequently asked questions I receive :

These four questions were asked by Reiki students during a recent Reiki Share :

Q : Does giving Reiki make you tired?  

A : No!  Once someone has been attuned to Reiki they are able to channel Reiki energy simply by thinking “Reiki on”.  It is not my energy that I am passing on during a treatment, rather I act as a conduit for the Reiki energy which flows down through my crown from the Universe and out of my hands.

Best of all, because Reiki comes through me, I get a blast of its beautiful healing energy as I pass it to someone else – the key being there is more than enough to go around!

Q : Can you give Reiki if you are blocked?  

A : Yes!  As I said in the answer above we are simply conduits for the Reiki energy, channeling it from the Universe and passing it to the client / person receiving Reiki.

Q : Do you have to get the hand positions for a treatment right? 

A : To the best of my knowledge the hands positions I teach my students were prescribed by Grand Master Usui and are the most effective way for Reiki to be given and received.  However, Reiki is an intelligent energy, which works with the inner knowing of the recipient to channel the energy to exactly where it needs to go – wherever that may be in mind, body and spirit.

Q : How often should I give myself Reiki?  

A : I give myself Reiki every day, generally as I am settling into bed in the evening.  I find it helps me to drift off to sleep.  This may only be for 5 or 10 minutes as I fall asleep.

I also give myself a full Reiki treatment once a week and take every opportunity to share Reiki with others, either at a Reiki share or by swapping treatments with another practitioner.

Additionally Reiki is my ‘go to treatment’ if I am feeling unwell or stressed or upset etc.
