I love listening to, connecting with and helping people. It is something that comes naturally to me. I have always been sensitive to the energy in and around me as well as that of other people. After completing my Level 2 Reiki training under the mentorship of Reiki Master Daisy Thompson at Northwest Healing studio in Seattle, USA, I spent a year practicing energy work on my friends, family members and pets.
Using a combination of healing modalities at Smoke and Sage including Reiki, Crystals, Flower Remedies and Chakra Balancing, I work to restore balance, harmony, and wellness in patients. A typical Reiki treatment lasts 45 minutes, during which time I will channel Qi into the energy centres of the body.
A Reiki treatment is concerned with delivering a healing experience in its highest form. Whatever your specific need for healing – whether emotional, spiritual, mental or physical, it has the potential to restore, invigorate and transform.
An experienced Reiki practitioner has the ability to connect and transfer healing energy direct to an individual to remove negative or unwanted energies. Working with pure energy, the process is both powerful and non-invasive. The practitioner hovers their hands above the recipient’s body, moving through chakras and meridians from head to feet, restoring a clean energy flow.
Following a Reiki session, an individual’s energy system is cleansed and rebalanced and that individual will start to feel the benefits of this either immediately or a few days following treatment.
Crystal Therapy is recognised as a type of ‘Vibrational Medicine.’ As a practice, it utilises the well documented healing properties of crystals to clear, balance, and align the client’s energy on all levels – mind, body and spirit. I practice the ‘Laying on of Stones,’ in which crystals are placed on and/or around the client’s body to create a healing energy grid. I also incorporate crystals into my Reiki work: in this instance the crystal is used to channel and focus the healing energy directed through it. The crystal, acting much like an energetic surgical tool, is used to ‘cut’ negative energy blockages from the body and auric field.
Aromatherapy (diffusing essential oils) during a Reiki session can help with the releasing of negative energy as well as the balancing of the overall energy system. I will assess whether or not I feel aromatherapy will be beneficial during a treatment based on the client's history as well as the aim of the overall treatment. Some people do not like the addition of scent during a Reiki session. Please let me know if you do not wish to have essential oil diffused during the session.
I use Flower Remedies from Sister Spinster and have found them to be effective in assisting the energy healing process. During a Reiki session I may sometimes pick up on certain imbalances and recommendations will be made as to a certain approach to be taken outside of the Reiki treatment room. This may involve taking flower remedies.
Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions, made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness.
We have all been raised with the idea that if something is wrong, it must be eradicated or suppressed. We take antibiotics, anti depressants, ant-acids etc. ‘Anti’ means against, and this is a common philosophy we are raised with…to fight against illness.
To understand how flower remedies work, we must change our perspective a little. Rather than suppressing a negative quality, they work by encouraging the positive aspects of our personalities. When we are restored to the positive and happy people we are capable of being, the negative symptoms become reduced, often even dissapearing.
reiki for pets
Reiki works well with animals for the same reasons it works well on children and people of all ages. Have you ever noticed that when you pet an animal, he rolls over to receive more or looks at you with lovey-dovey eyes or sighs?
Like humans, animals respond to your loving touch and intention. Reiki is another way to help your animals feel better.
You can give Reiki to animals in the following situations:
- When they are ill: Reiki helps the healing process and works with any type of medical intervention.
- When they are young or old: You can use Reiki on an animal of any age or situation.
- When they have been through a trauma: Animals can use loving energy after they’ve experienced any type of abuse, loss, or move, or if they seem to exhibit depression or other behavioral disorder. Even if you don’t know what the problem is, you can use Reiki to help.
In most people's minds, "Tarot card reading" means a woman in flowing robes, leaning over a small table in a candlelit room, foretelling impending doom.
But that's not really what Tarot cards are about. In fact, they're not even really meant to tell your fortune or future. According to The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, "The most powerful sources of information come from within; the Tarot aids in coming in contact with one's Higher Self."
During a reading I will have the patient shuffle and choose the cards. I will then perform the reading based on the layout of the cards as well as my intuition.
reiki group shares
Reiki share, also known as Reiki circle or exchange, is a gathering of like-minded Reiki believers who participate in group healing treatments on each other. The main purpose for the Reiki share is to give and receive Reiki in a casual atmosphere of friendship, honor, positive energy and devotion.
We hold Reiki shares once a month. For further information please email me.
