Reiki is a natural healing technique that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It involves the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner to the client through gentle touch or non-touch techniques. The energy is believed to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and restore balance to the mind, body, and spirit. There are numerous benefits to receiving Reiki, including stress reduction, pain relief, improved sleep, increased energy levels, and enhanced immune function.
One of the most significant benefits of Reiki is its ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Reiki works by calming the nervous system and releasing tension in the body, which can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other stress-related disorders. It can also help improve sleep quality and quantity, allowing for deeper, more restorative rest.
Reiki has also been shown to have physical benefits. It can help reduce pain, inflammation, and muscle tension, making it an effective complement to conventional medical treatments. It can also boost immune function, helping the body fight off illness and disease.
Additionally, Reiki can help promote emotional healing and personal growth. It can help release negative emotions and limiting beliefs, allowing individuals to connect more deeply with their true selves and live more fulfilling lives. It can also enhance spiritual awareness and connection, providing individuals with a sense of purpose and meaning.
Overall, Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive healing technique that offers a wide range of benefits for the mind, body, and spirit. Whether you are seeking relief from physical pain, emotional stress, or spiritual disconnection, Reiki can help you restore balance and promote overall well-being.
In a Reiki session, you will lie on your back on a massage table, fully clothed, with a bolster under your knees. It is ideal to remove your shoes. If you are unable to lie down, you may sit in a chair instead. You will be offered a blanket as your temperature can change during a session.
Once your practitioner begins the session, simply close your eyes and relax. Your practitioner will provide hands-on healing on some parts of your body, including your head and shoulders unless you request not to be touched in a certain part of your body or at all. On sensitive places like the torso and chest, your practitioner will hover over those areas.
In spiritual coaching sessions, you and the practitioner work together to uncover and overcome your limiting beliefs, so you can get in touch with and ultimately experience your deepest desires. The two of you discuss your goals and devise a plan to help you achieve them, using both spiritual principles and practical action steps. After a session, it is common to feel inspired, peaceful, and/or healed. You also will likely have a shift in perspective which often leads to a beautiful transformation in your life experience. It is often helpful to work with a coach to give you a path to healing and to help you be accountable to your new ways of being and commitment to yourself. Learn more here.
Any session will be customized to your needs, but the following is an overview of what the process might look like.
- In a session, we first examine your goals. The practitioner may ask questions to uncover any blocks. Their job is to help you unlock them through questions and dialogue. Once we uncover any false beliefs that you hold about yourself, someone else, or the world, the practitioner may take you through a meditation, guided movement, or another process to heal past trauma and the limiting beliefs.
- Then, you and the practitioner discuss and agree upon your next steps to anchor in the new patterns and positive beliefs about you and your life. This may be taking an action step towards a goal or a daily spiritual practice, such as meditation, prayer, or journaling.
- The session ends with an affirmative prayer. Rather than begging or beseeching Spirit (or God, the Universe, Life, Source, or any term you prefer), affirmative prayer connects us with the essence of the God within and asserts positive beliefs about the desired outcome. Affirmative prayer reflects that we are each led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances that may indicate otherwise. No perceived problem is too big for Spirit. In affirmative prayer, we assert that there is a mental cause for every experience in life. We proactively guide this mental picture to create the life that we want to see and experience.
- After the session ends, you are encouraged to take steps towards your goal in the form of the “homework” that we discussed in step 2 to show the Universe your commitment to and belief in your desired good.
Holistic business coaching is a blend of practical business advice and planning along with mindset coaching. Owning and running a business takes a different mentality than working for someone else. We are more successful when we uncover and overcome our limiting beliefs about ourselves, our business, our customers, and the world.
In a holistic business coaching session, we discuss your goals and identify steps to help you achieve them. We also work together to uncover and overcome your limiting beliefs, so you can accelerate the success of your business. If you have a particular spiritual belief, we bring your goals into prayer and trust that Spirit is working with us to achieve your success.
Commonly, I work with mind/body/spirit businesses. However, I will work with any business owner that understands that it’s not just what you do, but how you do it and how you view it. For example, if you consciously or unconsciously believe that you might not reach your sales targets, you may unconsciously create obstacles to reaching that goal, such as lacking the confidence to market your product or service. When this happens, you also send signals to the Universe about your lack of belief in your business and that interrupts the Universal flow of your path to meeting those targets.
I have a deep financial background and understand how to interpret financial statements, model projections, and complete business plans. Having been in commercial banking and entrepreneurial endeavors for 25 and 10 years, respectively, I have exposure to and understanding of most areas of business.
Any session will be customized to your needs, but I will give an overview here of what the process might look like.
- In a session, we first examine your goals. I may ask questions to uncover any blocks. My job is to help you unlock them through questions and dialogue. Once we uncover any false beliefs that you hold, I may take you through a process to change the limiting beliefs. I am only guiding you. You are doing the work. Believe it and watch it work!
- Then we discuss and agree upon your next steps to anchor in the new patterns and positive beliefs about you and your business. This may be taking an action step towards a goal or a daily practice, such as an affirmation.
- I typically end the session with an affirmative prayer. Rather than begging or beseeching Spirit (or God, the Universe, Life, Source, or any term you prefer), affirmative prayer connects us with the essence of the God within and asserts positive beliefs about the desired outcome. Affirmative prayer reflects that we are each led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances that may indicate otherwise. We proactively guide this mental picture to create the life that we want to see and experience.
- In future sessions, we discuss your progress and decide together each meeting’s focus.
To make the biggest impact, I recommend a minimum of five sessions; however, you may start with one and go from there. Learn more here.
