Reiki offers us an infinite number of lessons which, when embraced, can bring about profound gifts of personal healing. One of the gifts I have received is the ability to heal from clinical depression and align with my “independent spirit”. Another way of stating this is that I have learned to be true to myself. I have freed myself of any perceived expectations, or limitations that others might try to place on me. I am also learning to free myself of expectations that my own ego might desire.
Whether you are a long time resident of Sedona, or a new visitor to this beautiful city, you have likely noticed many signs touting, chakra balancing, healings, Reiki, massage, readings, etc.
No one knows precisely why healers are drawn to offer their services here in Sedona. Perhaps it is simply the healing spirit of the land that has been honored as sacred by the indigenous people for eons.
‘Why yourself’ is a question that reminds us to activate Reiki, and ask ourselves why we feel inspired in doing or saying something. This may help us learn more about our soul, or our deepest self.
Why Yourself, a Reiki inspired emotional healing session.
Spirals exist in our very DNA through the double helix. Some say that the spiral is the fingerprint of God which resides in all of creation.
We first walked through the doors of the House that Karuna healed in June of 1995. The 22 acres of rolling Kentucky countryside, and forested areas upon which the house sits were breathtakingly beautiful. The sparkling stream flowing through the property has a special healing ambiance of its own. Though the land and the house were wonderful to look at, there was a certain heaviness or denseness in the energy when we first arrived.
When we learn to practice Reiki fearlessly, trust it completely, and step out of the way by releasing all attachment to outcome, we open the door for miracles… we can do nothing wrong. This is unconditional Reiki.
When you think about the word miracle, what comes to your mind?
When I think about miracles, especially in the context of a “Reiki miracle” I immediately think of a result of prayer, which has been energized with Reiki, and left, undisturbed, as an offering upon the “altar” within the heart and mind of God.
Reikicize is exercise complemented with Reiki. This is a sharing of ways anyone could embrace Reiki in healing resulting from any type of illness. Just because this is a story about Reiki helping during a healing journey from a stroke, the examples here can be incorporated into healing after any illness.
I am a Reiki practitioner. This simply means that I work with the Reiki energy to help my client achieve a sense of wholeness and inner peace. There are times this results in a physical healing. However, that happens when the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the client are in alignment, which allows healing to flow into the physical being.
Michael has taught of combining drumming and Reiki as a healing modality. Although, I have been learning of it’s effectiveness in healing sessions, I had not given much thought to it helping during renovations.
Four beautiful Karuna Reiki Masters gathered around me, joined hands and offered a prayer of intent for my healing. Then they began to channel the Karuna Reiki energy with their voices. As they chanted and sang, I was transported deeper and deeper into the innermost corridors of my being. I was barely aware when the healing channels began to also direct the Karuna Reiki energy with their hands.
Gestures of creativity open and expand our ability to receive new ideas, solutions to problems, insight and guidance. Creativity is liberating.

When you find that the noise levels may get a little too loud, it may be a signal to turn the volume down or even off and log back onto “esoulharmony” (a play name) to make a date with the Soul and court the Stillness within. How ironic that all of creation, movement, activity, sound and light have their very being in Stillness.
Rose quartz crystals can be good tools and often help people be more loving, compassionate, and positive with them self or others. Some find they feel nurtured by the energy of rose quartz. There is often iron that causes the pink color of a stone, the energy emitted by the crystal can be soothing and peaceful.
“When we allow love to dissolve fear, our faith grows stronger and our dreams manifest.” Have you cleared yourself today? Another Reiki MUST Do! It can be helpful to provide a clearing for a client, before beginning our healing sessions.
When I first studied Reiki I was taught to use the energy to “protect” myself. I had always heard that we should protect ourselves in the “white light” to prevent anything negative, or dark from affecting us. Although this seems to be a common practice, I was never comfortable with it. Over the years of working with Reiki I have learned a new way to think about this concept.
Emerging within humanity, across the globe, are the highly evolved, gifted children, the cosmic child. They are very bright lights who are highly intelligent, inventive, intuitive, sensitive, perceptive, highly energetic and excitable, often precocious and wise beyond their years.
At every moment, we remain under the ever watchful gaze and adoration from our Angels, Masters, Teachers and Guides who know our Original Blueprint of Divine Perfection and our perfect path of evolvement.
When crystals and gemstones are carved into the form of a skull, they are believed to possess many helpful qualities. I personally was very skeptical that a crystal carved into a skull could add any depth to the way a person might connect with the crystal. However, one day curiosity led me to a crystal skull gallery at Crystal Enlightenment on the Creek in Sedona, Arizona. I very hesitantly viewed and held several different skulls hoping for a “sign” that one might be meant for me. Then, I sat quietly among the many skulls that were gathered in the gallery.
A crystal grid is a special grouping of stones laid out in a particular formation for a specific purpose. When created and empowered with sacred intention and prayer, each stone within the grid amplifies the qualities and energy of the other stones. Lines of high frequency light link the stones and create a vortex of energy.
The seven energy centers, or chakras that we are focusing on here include the base, sacral/creative, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow or third eye and crown chakras. We have additional soul level chakras that are explored in our self-study audio programs. These centers of energy function as valves which regulate the flow of energy through […]
by Laurelle Gaia I have received many questions about Karuna Reiki® from those who wonder about the concept of multiple Reiki practices and their purpose and intent, as well as, questions regarding the differences between Karuna and Usui Reiki. In this article I share with you my personal experiences of Karuna Reiki®. I was a […]
The more we open to receive the guidance from the Heart and Mind of God, made accessible to us with the help of Reiki, the more ways we will learn to apply crystalline energy to heal ourselves, others, and the world. One of the many beautiful things about Reiki is that no special tools are […]
“Prosperity and abundance are my Divine birthright.” How long has it been since you have made that statement? Has it been a month, a year, a decade…or never? Maybe intellectually you know that you live in an abundant universe, but do you FEEL it to be true? Have you noticed the power of the collective […]
Many people find the concept of spiritual guides, angels, Reiki guides, and enlightened beings to be beyond belief. This is often simply because they may not yet understand how to work with these beings of Divine love. Over my years of working with Reiki and following my soul’s longing to learn about the angelic realms […]
Creating Time and Developing Focus When teaching Reiki classes I often speak of “my Reiki meditations”. This stirs questions and comments from many of the students. Frequently students exclaim “I just can’t meditate”, “My mind is always wandering”, “I don’t have time to meditate”, “How do I use Reiki to help me learn to meditate”, […]
Increasing numbers of people are incorporating Reiki or other energies into their healing practices, their work, and their everyday life. Because of this, the vibrational frequency of each individual and of the planet is increasing. This can be seen as an evolutionary process for the human species as well as for the earth. As this […]
The vibrational frequency of Karuna Reiki assists us in meeting the angels, masters and spiritual guides in special blending place … a place where we can access expanded levels of consciousness and communicate more clearly with Divine intelligence
The more we immerse ourselves in Reiki energy and it becomes a part of our daily life, the more we learn about Reiki’s limitless healing potential. In our beginning Reiki training many of us are taught that Reiki is a stress-reduction and relaxation technique. We learn that it is used in “hands-on” healing. We learn […]
In late July of 2015 I was at home visiting with my husband and a friend when I experienced a severe stroke. I was unaware of any hints the brain aneurysms we’re developing I was just visiting and talking and the next thing I remember is being on a gurney in a hospital or an […]
The love that comes from the Creator is unbounded and because of this, there is no limit to the good that can come to those who seek. The potential that lies within us and around us is waiting to unfold and is always available to reveal more and to take us to greater heights. No matter how much we have accomplished or how wonderful something has become there is always the next step, the next lesson, the next development. This is especially true with healing and with Reiki. If we accept this, it makes it possible for us to open to a greater experience of what healing can be. . .
In the community room of a church in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, a small group of Reiki practitioners and a few newcomers stand in a circle, holding hands alive with the charge of Reiki energy, eyes closed, taking slow, deep, relaxing breaths. The circle coordinator has welcomed everyone, said a prayer of thanksgiving for the healing all […]
In July of 2002 we met thirteen remarkable men behind the walls of the federal Administrative Maximum Security Penitentiary south of Florence, Colorado. These men are now Reiki practitioners awaiting Reiki Master Teacher training. Two years prior to this meeting an inmate wrote a letter requesting that we come to the prison to teach Reiki […]
Being able to sense energy helps us develop our Perception. Our perception is when we use all of our senses to become aware of something. We may use our sense of touch, clairvoyance, smell, hearing, or simply our awareness to identify a specific frequency; perception allows us to determine what type of energy something holds. […]
I AM WRITING THIS as many questions are surfacing and perhaps some answers are arising too. This is also to give gratitude for teams working together. I am healing from a serious stroke caused by brain aneurysms that occurred about one and a half years ago. The doctors gave me a two percent chance of […]
Now we know our body is composed not only of physical elements such as muscles, bones, nerves, arteries, organs, glands, etc.; it also has a subtle energy system and chakras through which ‘life force energy’ flows. As we briefly discussed earlier, our physical body is cocooned in many layers of light known as etheric bodies. […]
ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING THINGS for new Reiki practitioners is to learn to trust that they are actually able to channel Reiki effectively. Many who attend Reiki classes are very new to the concept of energy healing. They often have no idea what they are supposed to experience. It is relatively common for new […]
by Laurelle Gaia Reiki Whispers, November, 2011 When I am giving a Reiki session to a client, I frequently find that I am reminding them “The deeper you breathe the deeper you heal”. When I personally receive healing sessions, I am mindful of my breathing as well. It is no secret that various breathing patterns […]
by Laurelle Shanti Gaia Know Your Reiki Guides… the Art of Listening Isn’t it interesting how the Universe brings lessons to our attention repeatedly, until we listen? The other day I observed my friend Michael having a telephone conversation with a business associate. I was amazed at how often Michael was interrupted by the person […]

Is attitude adding or distracting from our intentions?
Positive attitude is more important than I even realized previously. Some say that if we have a positive attitude it is the same as denying reality. I feel it can help to create reality. I am so thankful that the doctors chose to say I had a 2 percent chance of survival rather than a 98 percent chance of something else.

Amber as with any popular gemstone that has a long history of use in various cultures, amber has accumulated its share of mystical properties. Amber was considered the “soul of the tiger” in Asian cultures and regarded as the stone of courage. Pieces of amber were carried for protection during long travels, as well as used to treat jaundice.

I will be forever grateful to Reiki for many things in my life especially for helping after I had a stroke in July 2015. I have written an article for this magazine about how my gratitude for everything has grown during the ensuing months, but that article did not share my new and still growing understanding of the process of healing that I have experienced as a result of […]
There are many ways that people are introduced to and relate with Usui Reiki energy. There are a multitude of different teaching methods and initiation attunement styles. It is in the spirit of Reiki for practitioners and teachers to honor all manners of teaching and attunement. However, it is equally important to use discernment and make wise choices regarding how we personally wish to learn and experience Reiki.
The moon emanates distinctly different energies during the full cycle from new moon to full moon. Each of the eight cycles facilitates the process of creation and manifestation. The eight phases each have a duration of approximately 28 days. An example and definition follow: Day 1-31/2 New moon energy is for creating a vision Day 31/2-6 Crescent moon energy […]
When we begin our path of spiritual awakening we can encounter many beliefs, forms of dogma, tools, energetic experiences, etc. which can cause us to create patterns that limit our full awakening to Divine light.
In the beginning of our journey as healers we often start with learning about and experiencing our chakras. I personally find that this study, and direct experience is important as we gain awareness of our personal connection to our Divine creative power.
by Laurelle Gaia & Michael Arthur Baird Many times we have said, “One of the most beautiful things about Reiki is that there is nothing extra, no tool, or substance needed to be able to help oneself and others heal.” However, we know that Reiki enhances all other methods of healing. Even when a person […]
by Laurelle Shanti Gaia Crystals are susceptible to absorbing energies from the environment. They can absorb heavy negative energies just as easily as they can absorb loving energy of a very light, high vibrational frequency. No matter how diligent we are with keeping our own thoughts, words and actions kind and loving, we might occasionally […]
This is one of my favorite Reiki adventures. In 1997 William Rand and I visited Mt. Kurama and Usui Sensei’s grave. We brought sunflowers to the gravesite, and placed them in the vases among the many flowers left by others. The moment the sunflowers were in place, a beautiful white butterfly landed on them. We […]
Healing Religious Wounds with Reiki and the Holy Fire By Laurelle Shanti Gaia This article appears in the Summer 2014 issue of “Reiki News Magazine” When I found Reiki in 1989, I unknowingly had been searching to fill a spiritual void.

By Laurelle Gaia It is with the help of the distant healing Reiki symbol (HNSHZN), I am able to connect back in time to an experience that proved to be one of my most powerful personal healings. When I review the experience, it feels like a different life time rather than simply an earlier chapter […]
This year certainly has been a year of growth, shifting and change. One thing that we can be certain of is that we always have the opportunity to grow and heal. Those of us dedicated to spiritual growth often find solitude to be important, so that we are able to truly listen to the whispers […]

The beautiful full moon is such an inspiration to me in so many ways. As I gazed at her luminous presence last evening, I was reminded of a great gift that Reiki has given me…the experience of Oneness.
Many years ago I heard someone say “we are one with everything”. During a daily, personal, Reiki meditation I thought, “Nice concept, but how can that actually be?” One thing I know for sure is, whenever I ask “How” while Reiki is flowing through me, I better pay attention, because I am about to be shown.
<![CDATA[ “Hello to 2012” by Astara E. Edmonds When we reflect on the year 2011, let’s find gratitude and appreciation for our personal growth, accomplishments, realizations and blessings that have occurred for us. Sometimes we can get swept up in focusing so much on the challenges and upsets of life that we forget to focus […]
Though foundational grounds may be appearing very “shaky” lately, including those of the actual earth and waters and the many dimensional structures of politics, finances, relationships, etc., the breaking waves lead us into the exciting adventure of surfing through thinning veils and playing leapfrog through spiritual portals opening into a new earth.
Feng Shui “cure” for keeping financial/legal upheaval from entering your field at this time and for bringing good luck
by Baker Gendron The beginning of a new year seems to give us a new lease on life. We get to start anew, to release anything that didn’t work last year and move forward. In view of that I’m going to ask you to engage your creative side. To look at things in a different […]
It is a good thing that I am one who welcomes change. I was planning on writing an article entitled “Surfing the Dimensions with Reiki” for this issue of Reiki Healing News. I worked on it for several days, and suddenly I found myself “stalled”. Perhaps I became stuck between dimensions? (just kidding). All I know is I hit a block. I usually use Reiki to move myself through writer’s block, but this time it just wasn’t budging. Now I understand why.
By Astara E. Edmonds In these times of challenge and change, I find my personal path to inner peace is to go within to that place of quiet listening and conversation with Spirit. An inner dialog takes place between my feeling self and my logical self. Often, however, my dialog is with my Angels, Guides […]
“Let me explain that there is a difference between ‘being loving’ and ‘being love’. Being loving means giving love to another whether you have any for yourself or not. It means giving what you yourself may or may not even have to give. This type of giving of love can eventually drain you, because we don’t always have a limitless supply. And then we look to the other to replenish our pool of love, and if it is not forthcoming, we stop being loving ourselves, because we are exhausted. Being love, on the other hand, means loving myself unconditionally so that it overflows, and
How are solar flares and storms affecting us? In my Reiki practice I have recently noticed an unusual increase in common symptoms among my clients. Normally my practice assists clients who are focusing on progressing on their spiritual path, recovering from abuse, healing deep emotional wounds, or working to re-pattern old beliefs and negative thought […]

First let’s consider the purpose of meditation and the forms it can take. Meditation is the art of creating a quiet mind and listening to that sacred silence within. It is through meditation, that we connect with the heart and mind of God. Prayer is the act of talking with the Divine, meditation is simply BEing totally aware of God’s presence within your heart.
