What Is Reiki?

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration."

Nikola Tesla


Dr. Mikao Usui, a Buddhist monk, had a life changing journey where he experienced the enlightenment of Reiki after climbing Mount Kurama on a 21-day meditation. For the past century, the practice of Reiki has been passed on and used all over the world. Reiki has recently become a more widely accepted modality, being used in hospitals around the world to incorporate in holistic medical care.

Distance Reiki (also known as Virtual Reiki or Absentee Reiki) is a technique that allows the practitioner to offer a Reiki session without the client being in the same room or geographic location. In other words, the practitioner is able to transmit Reiki (otherwise known as spiritual energy, qi or prana) beyond physical touch. Distance Reiki is a technique that originates in the 1920s with the creation of the system of Reiki. Since Reiki energy transcends time and space, it can be done at a distance. This allows you to have the privacy and comfort of receiving a treatment in your own home.

How Does It Work?

Our human energy systems or fields can sometimes be referred to as our Chakra system or Subtle Body. When energy is blocked or not flowing strongly through our system, it can have an affect on the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional body.

In Japanese, Rei translates to “Universal Life” and Ki or Qi means “Energy.”

Everyone and everything (down to the molecules) is made up of energy, resonating at a certain vibration.

Reiki is the light, life force energy that flows all around and through us.

Practioners channel Reiki through a hands-on or distant healing process that works to clear energy blockages and balance the Chakra System. Whether from a Distance or In-Person, it works no differently.

Reiki energy promotes healing, raises your vibration, and aids in the process of releasing what no longer serves you. It is akin to an energetic detox, and sometimes, the client may even experience detox symptoms lasting only 1-3 days long.

Reiki is a powerful tool to help to clear out any trapped emotions, harmful beliefs, behaviors, trauma, blockages, and patterns that one collects and absorbs throughout their lifetime. Once these patterns are uncovered and released, it creates space and clears the channel. This allows you to feel more present and take actions in alignment to your own soul’s calling, to take shape the highest vision of your future.

We all deserve to live our best, most fulfilling lives.

What Does It Feel Like?

There are a variety of possible sensations you may feel during this time such as tingling, warmth, but most commonly, clients feel very relaxed and "lighter."

You may also feel a release, centered, energized, empowered, or refreshed.

Some clients do not notice much during their first session, and begin to feel more effects in the days following. All you need to do is be in a comfortable position in an area with few distractions for maximal relaxation.

* Medical research indicates that stress is the cause of up to 90% of disease and illness.
“People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. An interesting study reported that recipients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn. Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation."

How Often?

Depending on where you are on your journey, your intention, and your goals, how often you should schedule a session is up to you. Some people find that booking a Reiki session occasionally helps to maintain their balance. Others are seeking deep transformation to work through long held mental/emotional patterns, and may want to book a series or package of consistent sessions to meet their goal, and then follow up as needed.

Reiki for Animals, Items, Spaces, Events

Everything is made of energy, down to the molecules, resonating at a certain vibration. Therefore, Reiki can be done on more than just people. I also offer No Contact Reiki Sessions for people, animals, items, spaces, and events.

How It Works:

You will message me explaining what you wish to have Reiki done for, and I will respond letting you know when I am going to be providing the remote healing. It will not be done in a Live setting.

If you purchase this for people, please only request it for yourself or for a receptive, willing recipient.

* Please remember that Reiki is complementary to, and not a substitute or replacement for medical care by a licensed professional, treatment, or medication. You must be over the age of 18 to book a session with me.

By booking a session, you (and all involved) acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to Moss and Moonlight’s disclaimer.
