I’ve been doing Reiki Natural Healing for a few years now and have no doubt in its amazing power and healing. Since I’ve become pregnant, my little one has gotten a lot of Reiki in the womb since Eric and I are both trained in this beautiful Japanese healing technique. I can feel his strong movements when I give this energy to him daily and know that he enjoys it and takes it in beautifully. In my doctor’s appointment the other day, we did some routine heartbeat monitoring where they graph the baby’s heartbeat movements for about 15 minutes. The first 10 minutes I just laid there, did nothing, and rested and for the last 5 minutes, I decided to give him Reiki to see what would happen.
If you look at my graph, the first 10 minutes was without Reiki (green line) and the last 5 minutes (yellow line) was with Reiki. I thought this was so cool to scientifically see the affect Reiki has on my little Oak since there was an obvious jump in his heartbeat strength in the last 5 minutes that my Dr. could not explain. So amazing to see this life force energy work on paper!
For those who aren’t familiar with Reiki, Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, healing promotion, and all around mind, body, spirit, balance, and healing. It’s administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the “life force energy” that flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy” so Reiki is actually spiritually guided life force energy. Believe and have faith even in the things you cannot always see, the power and energy of God is definitely there.
I feel peace within myself with a steady balance of energy throughout my body and found myself laughing so much throughout the day with co-workers more than I have done in a long time. I feel free and not as serious as before and did not pressure myself to work as before. I now allow myself to take time for breaks in between my work.
I feel energetic and really good about myself like on a natural high of positive life force. I can’t remember the last time I’ve felt like this it’s been years. I feel so much happier.
I just want to get rid of the old behavior patterns that no longer serve me and be that beautiful soul I was when I came into this world. I see the difference in my face I was at peace and had no “look of worry” I looked in the mirror and said to myself, “wow you look good, you’re glowing.”

Shalandra, I had gotten away from my self-treatments and was having trouble falling asleep so decided to do them. Now I fall right to sleep. It is wonderful, plus I sleep better. What a gift!!!
It is amazing what comes into my mind. I have absolutely no trouble doing Reiki self-treatment now as I feel so good during and after….
And my goodness, the changes in my life are amazing. Things I should have done many years ago in my personal life I have done, and without anger and resentment. I simply have done them. I didn’t realize it was Reiki that was giving me the courage to move forward with my life, and supporting me in my decision to retire from my job until now. It is very hard to contain my excitement. WOW!!
I have to say I am enjoying my self-treatment immensely. It is so odd how I feel about Reiki now as compared to after my initiations. I am learning to shut my thinking mind off and allowing awareness. My goodness Shalandra, I don’t know what else to say, it’s hard to explain…….A SEA OF LOVE. I am so grateful.

My broken toe and feet are healing really well. I’m getting sensation back and my balance is improving dramatically. I have noticed my body changing it’s getting healthy.
I have practiced Reiki on the plants in my boyfriends yard and have noticed them change and look very healthy and strong! The orange tree has produced 5 times the fruit this year and has more blooms. I was told that the tree has never had blooms this time of year.

After going to Reiki Master Sister Jenna for a hands-on Reiki treatment and sending Reiki to the surgery the day before then Reiking the dental instruments before we started my implant surgery went very well.
The periodontist remarked, “You must be living right, everything went in precisely”. I have a very small jaw area and it was extremely tight. I experienced very little pain afterward and have not taken any antibiotics or Motrin as prescribed because I feel no need for them.
I am continually doing Reiki on my left jaw and of course continuing my self-treatments morning and evening. Reiki is such a Blessing!!!

Shalandra, I have to say, the treatment was incredibly surprising. I was tied up with an unexpected bath for baby Luke at the start (!) and found my left leg starting to ‘zing’ and my head felt more pressure during that time. My knees also felt hot throughout. By the time I got to sit on the couch and relax my entire left leg was zinging, then my right foot. My head pressure subsided and as I write this the pain/feeling I feel through the day where the tumor sits is not as intense.
I am elated and astonished at how well distant Reiki works. I am looking forward to our next sessions. Thank you!

When I prayerfully did Reiki on my head at home for a headache I saw astounding results in 2 days. A sliver of glass came up out of my temple region, that M.R.I’s had missed from my car accident over 20 years ago!
Also when my best friend Melanie, that was trained by Shalandra, gave me a prayerful Reiki treatment I noticed her hands were very warm while over my eyes and ears. The next day, to my surprise and delight, I noticed that bright light (bulb or sun) no longer caused great discomfort! And my right ear was able to hear more clearly than it had for years!
I am so thankful for the healings and progress!

I had stopped doing self-treatments for about 5 days (longest period without any Reiki in 2-1/2 years) and I went surfing on Memorial Day. I got hit by someone else’s board really hard on the hip (really hard!) – My first instinct of course was to put my hand on my hip and I’ve been doing daily self-treatments ever since.
I think Reiki really helped because I never even had any bruising. I’m still sore but it could have been so much worst!

My husband had a nice result from some Reiki I did. He went back into the hospital for a minor heart attack a couple months ago, and while he was there they did a scan (MRI or something like that) and saw a tumor or a mass of some sort on his spine that they said would need to be removed or he would eventually be crippled.
So I did the distant Reiki on him for a few nights while he was in the hospital. And a week later when they did the biopsy to see where the tumor was they couldn’t find anything. It was gone.

I had a very serious back problem. Even contacted a neurosurgeon. My hobby was gardening and landscaping. Very painful!! Also vacuuming took me all day because of frequent stopping to put ice or heat on my back. Also, had shoulder and knee (torn cartridge) problems.
Took First Degree Reiki May 2013 and faithfully gave myself treatments. Amazing!! My back is wonderful! Now I can vacuum and mop the same day. Shoulders and knees are doing fine.
I use to have acid reflux – took medicine nightly. It’s gone. One amazing happening was that I wore glasses for distance and one day while driving everything was a blur – took off my glasses and WOW I could see clearly. No more glasses.
Took Second Degree Reiki Sept 2013. Learned new Reiki skills including how to send a distant Reiki treatment. Very helpful. Could go on and on about the benefits of Reiki for me.
