What is Reiki and how can it benefit me and others ?
We all have natural healing abilities but when we can tune directly in to the incredible life force energy that is all around us we have exponentially more to share. By connecting into this energy in its purest simplest form and allowing ourselves to be tubes for focusing it with heart, intention and presence, we may share and experience deep inner shifts back to wholeness.
Reiki simply means ‘Life force energy’ and although it has been anchored as a modality from Japan, its roots go back way beyond. From the dawning of time our ancestors have used this form of ancient healing by tuning in to being conduits of the Divine and focusing this vision of wholeness for healing our energy body, which in turn affects our physical, mental and emotional and is the core to all dis-ease.
Using the navigation system of the chakras we are able to move blockages and clear the aura of anything that is holding us back or making us feel tired or lack-lustre. As we go through our lives it is natural that we may experience trauma in a range of intensities, often these stay in our energy system, over time moving in to the physical and making us sick. Just as we look after our car, our home and our bodies, this is an excellent way to keep our energy in optimum functionality, Reiki is like doing a spring clean for the spirit, though it can also go much deeper than this.
During your journey with reiki it is likely your intuition and psychic abilities will increase, also as you let go of elements that are of a lower vibration, your outer reality will start to shift to become in alignment with the life your soul is calling you to lead.
Izzy has been practicing Reiki for over 13 years and although she has also worked with other modalities, she has always returned to reiki as it is such a simple and effective delivery system which allows a flexibility in adding our own creativity and intuitive approach.
It is wonderful to experience a reiki session however I feel it is even more profound to be able to heal yourself as and when you need to, it is also a beautiful offering to gift to others, especially loved ones during times of need. To be able to offer this gift without anything but your presence in any circumstance can go a long way.
In this class you will learn about the energy field and the chakra system, the history of reiki and how to give a session to yourself and others. You will learn the hand positions, ways to set up the space for optimum experience and also tips for protection, intention, clearing and ways to enhance your psychic sight. You will receive a guide book, a certification for Reiki level one and of course the attunements.
Every teacher has a different flavour of reiki and Izzy has generated an array of tips during her sacred journey with it. The reiki she works with has its roots in Lemuria however she also likes to tune in to the energies of nature and mother earth for a two-way awareness and connection, it also honours the shadow and brings in grounded elements.
‘Reiki is a term that is more well known and it also allows you to access certification for continuing your journey in the linear fashion that the current paradigm honours. However you can apply this to all moments of your life for maximum vitality and healing. You can use it to manage stress and anxiety, you can reiki your food your plants and your garden, you can even shine it out of your eyes as you smile your light out in to the world.
Izzy is also an artist and incorporates reiki in to her art, feel free to check out www.izzyivyart.com for a visual representation of this blissfull uplifting energy. Her 2nd Oracle deck “Beyond Lemuria” has just been published which is very much inspired by by journey with reiki, she also teaches a painting workshop called ’Anchoring Light.”
