Reiki Blue Mountains
"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” - Nikola Tesla.
The Blue Mountains is a sanctuary for people living in Sydney. Hosts of tourists also relish the clean, crisp air. Taking in our local lookouts and bushwalks is to be soothed by the principle known as forest bathing.
Indigenous people have long regarded the mineral waters and pools such as those found in the Jenolan Caves as providing physical and spiritual healing.
Drawn to the high vibrational energy of Katoomba I built a yurt which takes in the surrounding trees to provide an idyllic space for reiki healing. It is also close to the spectacular Minnehaha waterfall.
Reiki Healing - what a session involves
“A true healer helps you to remember and reconnect consciously with your inner light.” – Robert Holden
I find that to be an effective reiki healer requires that I tune in to what areas you need to work on.
I’ll then get you to lie down on my reiki table. There is nothing you need to do. As your realignment takes place I play some reiki music which can assist you in relaxing and becoming present. There are times when I will also do reiki with crystals.
The reiki treatment doesn't any physical touch, unlike massage and some other forms of energy healing.
I place my hands lightly on or above specific areas of the body as well as use different hand shapes to express the reiki symbols. In doing so, a transfer of energy takes place. During this time, my hands get warm and tingling which confirms the healing is taking place. When I feel the heat, or energy, in my hands has dissipated, I then place them over a different area of the body.
The reiki sessions are held in my yurt. It is a quiet, specifically designed spiritual healing space that overlooks a bushland area in Katoomba, in the Blue Mountains.
Reiki symbols have their basis in words from the Japanese language and also some Sanskrit.
A Reiki healer will either use their intention or their hands to pass the symbols over the body to stimulate the flow of energy.
Following their intuition allows the reiki master to utilise the symbols where they will be most powerful.
For example, the symbol at the top left of this diagram is sei hei ki which represents harmony. It assists with emotional and mental calm, helping with conditions like depression, trauma or anxiety.
The symbol in the middle row, on the left hand side, is cho ku rei, that of power. Like a coil, it can be used to increase or subdue energy flow as is needed. Someone may have a block around their third chakra. This energy channel characters our motivation and desire to pursue our dreams. This symbol can help someone refocus on their goals or be used to help someone struggling with scattering their energy on too many passions.
