What is Reiki?

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
– Albert Einstein

Reiki is a holistic practice to help bring your mind, body and soul to a place of peace, harmony and alignment. In simplest terms, reiki is a form of energy work. Often, a practitioner lays hands, though that’s not always necessary, as is the case in distance reiki (similar to having a reading done but distance reiki focuses on your well-being rather than a question you’d have for a reading).

Reiki energy flows through our bodies like water. We’re born with breath, water and life force (ki) in our bodies. It’s then a choice whether we breathe deeply and whether the water, and the universal life force of reiki, evolve from a trickle to a strong, steady stream.

This state of alignment helps you create ideal overall health of mind, heart and body. This holistic practice allows universal life force energy to flow freely through your body to help your physical, emotional and mind bodies to do what they naturally know how to do: restore and heal.

Meditation & Relaxation

In legal and practical terms, reiki is considered a meditation and relaxation technique and the benefits of these have been demonstrated. However you choose to approach reiki, it is a holistic practice that needs to be experienced first-hand to be integrated. Reiki as a lifestyle contributes to overall wellness.

Reiki, Yoga, and Meditation Teacher and Student

Mercedes Déziel-Hupé, Bright Star Woman

Mercedes (Bright Star Woman) has been practising reiki for over 14 years. She is a certified Usui Reiki Master Teacher and a Blue Star Reiki Master Teacher. As a rite carrier, she offers the Rite of the Womb ceremony.

Bright Star Woman offers reiki workshops or as they’re often called, attunements.  Traditionally, reiki was passed down from Master to Apprentice over years of internship, study and service.

Today, we have the benefit of being connected to experts around the world through a Google search and we can teach ourselves anything we wish to learn thanks to a wealth of accessible information.

Reiki is a natural ability we can all develop; we are living therefore, reiki is in us. Receiving a reiki attunement is to learn the practice. It’s a little like learning to dance; we all can dance because we have bodies we move everyday, but it’s nice to be taught a few key steps to choreograph (or freestyle) to our heart’s content.

Because reiki is energy work, there’s still much to gain from the attunement process: the initiation from Master to Apprentice through touch and introduction to symbols.

It’s important to remember that clients and practitioners should seek medical assistance as needed; reiki is not a replacement for medical treatment.

Reiki is a powerful tool that aids in creating a healthy lifestyle, a peaceful mind and a healthy body. Reiki serves as a health promoting method (preventative) and acts as a complement to medical consultation and treatments.
