What is Reiki? New Updated Page

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki, in Sequim, WA

I’ve recently updated my page on, What is Reiki?, to be more of the explanation I give to my students verbally.  Many people, even people who have taken Reiki, still do not have a strong grasp of what Reiki truly IS. This does not help their confidence in doing it or talking to others about it.  I pray you find this helpful in your moving forward with Reiki and very much welcome your loving questions, comments and responses.

Blessings,

What is Reiki?

Reiki at the core is a band of vibration of healing energy that comes from a Divine and intelligent source.

One of the ‘definitions’ of Reiki is, “Divinely Guided Life Force Energy.” Meaning, the energy itself comes from a Divine, intelligent source, it knows what to do, where to go, how much Reiki you or your client needs and does this part for us.  What we must do as clients or practitioners is ‘get out of the way’ mentally, and allow the healing to happen.

Reiki is not a technique, although many people, even Master/Teachers, even myself, talk about Reiki as a technique because that is a tangible thing that people can grasp onto and understand.  We teach basic technique with a Reiki class to give students a starting point and some confidence in working with their Reiki.  But, Reiki is the energy and not the technique.

As a student practices, they gain inner wisdom that guides them giving them even more confidence and ability along their healing path.  The Reiki and their Reiki Guides, guide them as to where to put their hands, for how long and when to take their next class.  It’s a beautiful process and one that, if allowed, unfolds naturally and gracefully.

Why is this important? Why does it matter that we know that Reiki is the energy and not the technique?

I have found that many of my students get wrapped up in their heads with Reiki when they are first starting.  They focus on the hand positions I taught them and not the part where I said “You cannot do it wrong.” Many of us are so trained to do things ‘right’, do things a particular way, do things the expert’s way, that we forget, Reiki and our Higher Knowing guide us, we already know how to do this, out human self just needs to step aside, break through the fear and go for it.

Reiki being the energy, allows us the freedom to know that as long as we’re doing it, we are doing it ‘right.’

You literally cannot do it wrong!

Even if you are not doing your Reiki, you are learning from it.  You learn how much better you feel when you do, do your Reiki.  You learn about yourself and what you need, want, desire in your life.  You learn about your fears that are keeping you from doing your Reiki and you learn about your connection or lack there of, to Divine Creator.  We learn so much from the times we are NOT doing something, that when we start doing it again, anything healthy for us, we get important information.

So do your Reiki, knowing you cannot do it wrong. Knowing it always is ON when you ask it or intend it to be.  Knowing you have done this before and are just re-learning in a new body and knowing that no matter how much or how little you do, it’s all good for you.

Knowing you cannot do it wrong, gave me permission to be daring, to play with it, to try new things, my way things and to be DAUNTLESS!!!

An oldie but goodie, JUST DO IT!!!

Here is another explanation of what Reiki is by William Lee Rand from the Reiki News Magazine and the International Center for Reiki Training.

By William Lee Rand at the International Center for Reiki Training

The Reiki symbol

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” 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.”

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not religious. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

Congratulations Reiki Masters-in person & on line both!!

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

Today just completed a Reiki III class where some of my students were in person and some of them were beamed in magically from all over the country.  It’s amazing to be able to teach this way.  There are new challenges that I am working on but I truly believe Reiki was meant for everyone and if everyone cannot find a teacher near them or even leave the house in some cases, they need to have a way to learn Reiki.  On line is the perfect option.

When I teach on-line, I still teach my full length class, I do not skimp or give less to my on line students.  I still believe in a very thorough class so the students will feel confident.  But, unlike some teachers, I do believe teaching this way, on line is highly beneficial and I encourage it.  I also believe if you can find the right teacher for you locally that is primary so you have continued support and can even attend Reiki Circles with your teacher and her other students for learning.  But, in real life, sometimes your true teacher is not local to you.  Sometimes Divine guides you to your teacher on line and it’s all good!!  (And, I offer mentoring and continued support via email and Skype as well.)

Please send prayers of CONGRATULATIONS to my newest Reiki Masters; Angie, Dianne, Andi, Melissa, Jasmin, Terry, and Michelle.  I’m so proud of all of these ladies, they are amazing moms/caregivers, incredible women and highly intuitive healers.  I feel so blessed to teach Reiki.  Blessings all, Josslyn

My favorite part about teaching on-line is being able to watch all the practice healing sessions at the same time.  This is so cool.

IMG_3984

Andi did Reiki practice sessions on both of her sons.  This is Oliver receiving Reiki.  He likes watching me, while I like watching him. It’s mutual interest in the people on the screen.

Reiki Master students practicing a healing attunement on each other.  A healing attunement can be done for any healing intention to help release blockages in the body, emotions, beliefs and spiritual level.  Practicing healing attunements prepares students for when they take a Master/Teacher class and do Reiki Attunements. In the background all the on-line students are practicing their healing attunements as well. 

IMG_3987

Terry even practiced her healing attunement on her dog and a pillow too.

I LOVE seeing their proud faces as I announce their Reiki Master status.  Congratulations Reiki Master Healers, Andi, Terry, Melissa and Jasmin!! Heal one, heal many.  Start with yourself and heal the world!!

Congratulations to my two local Reiki Master Healers, Angie and Dianne.  I love having you here for Reiki events and classes, you brighten my life up for sure. Such a great day!!

Sharpening the Axe

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

The last two years have been a whirlwind.  A great deal of deep healing leading to a great deal of new healing modalities (lasers with Reiki anyone!!) and I’m ready for some fun in the sun and time with my boys before they leave for college ( I know it’s a couple of years away but that’s not how it feels).

Rain Shadow Reiki will be taking a vacation for the month of July and part of August.  Unless you have an emergency, please wait until August or September to call for an apt.

WHAT IS AN ENERGETIC EMERGENCY?

An emergency in my world is haunting by a Dark or Negative Energy, your body is in dire pain and the other practitioners you consult have not been able to help, emotional distress.  If it is a true emergency go to your ER and consult your doctor.

Use your intuition and I”ll be checking my phone and email from time to time.

Grateful for your understanding,

Blessings,

Josslyn

Spiritual Ladies Night Out-Wonder Woman

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

For three years now, once a month, Rain Shadow Reiki hosts a Spiritual Ladies Night Out event.  Each month we do different events for FUN and to remind us that the healing process is JOYFUL and more fun with a spiritual COMMUNITY!! We need each other and this is a reminder of that.

This month I wanted to feel like a super hero and my super hero growing up was Wonder Woman!

IMG_3926

Reiki is Divine Energy for healing. Because our physical body is one of our greatest spiritual gifts from Divine in order to learn, our whole life is a chance to learn, grow and evolve.  Reiki is not just for hands on healing, it’s for every single day that we want to be closer to our Creator.

For that reason, I bring in Reiki all day long, I talk to Reiki all day long and I especially bring in Reiki with intention depending upon what I’m doing.

When we watch a movie, especially these days, there is so much coming at us; harsh visuals, lower vibrating language, abusive sounds.  Media is made today for the intention of getting through your protective barriers and into your psyche.  It is much easier to keep it out then it is to get it out after it’s in.  I do this with REIKI, OF COURSE.

When I’m sitting in my car or the theatre before a movie (or at home if you are watching at home) I simply bring in my Reiki with intention that everything I see, hear and experience will stay outside of my personal space.  I’ll enjoy the experience, but NOT take in anything in that I do not choose to take in.  Sometimes during an action movie like this one, I’ll do it again in the middle just if my intuition is recommending it.

IF you have movies, TV or news that you feel has gotten into your subconscious and still haunts you, follows you around through your life  (for me it was the movies ‘The Birds’ and ‘The Wizard of Oz’ flying monkeys) I can help you remove those.  My lifelong fear of birds has gotten much better since I removed “The Birds” from watching it at too young of an age.  THIS is one of the things I can do with Reiki and ThetaHealing.

I HOPE YOU FEEL LIKE A SUPER HERO IN YOUR OWN LIFE!!

If not, take a Reiki class, it’ll help!!

Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

 

Q&A – How do I Control the Reiki

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

Your questions are amazing and help me to know what is on your minds, what is important to you.  So, when appropriate, I like to share them.  This one came in recently.  Thank you Jacob.  Blessings to you.

QUESTION:

Hi!

I’m an aspiring reiki and elemental practitioner who stumbled upon your website in search of how to use my energy to charge my phone.

How can I control reiki output, feel it, channel it, not waste any of the energy etc?

How may I use my energy to charge my phone?

I think I tried to focus my energy into the battery but the battery seemed to have went down.

Teacher, do you have any advice?

Thank you,
Jacob G.

JOSSLYN’S ANSWER:

Hi Jacob,

I have been very successful with charging camera batteries with Reiki, but not so great with phone batteries.  Yet.  Camera batters are of an easy kind to be charged with Reiki.  The larger the battery and depending on the kind of battery and how it’s effected by Divine energy, the more Reiki/intention it may take.  Try bringing the battery in long distance and charging it that way.  This makes the battery more malleable and able to be recreated with Divine Energy. See how that works.  Let me know.  I haven’t spent much time on this for a while, so it might be something to revisit.
Other Tips-
*I would listen to guidance if it’s important enough, Reiki will tell you HOW to do it.  Don’t try so hard, that tends to block us.  Just ask and then do the Reiki and see how it works.
*There is no wasting of Reiki as Reiki is infinite.  If we are not using all the Reiki we are running, it will go to our dog laying next to us, to another person in our lives who we care about or to someone we saw on FB who needs it.  Reiki knows where it is needed and working with us as the channel is happy to go to others who need it. Reiki is never wasted or misused.  (Reiki going to others in this way, without our knowledge does not require asking for permission.  This healing is happening because the person/pet prayed/asked for healing and Divine is answering the call through our channel.)
*We do not control Reiki, the Reiki comes from our Divine Creator, it knows what to do, where to go and how much is needed.  We only channel the Reiki and let go.  Allow and surrender.  If this is hard for you Reiki your ego to help you surrender to Divine.
*The more we try to control, again, the more we block the amount of Reiki we are channeling to ourselves and others.  The more we let go and let Reiki handle the flow, the more flow we will have.
Reiki is a lesson in letting go and allowing Divine to work beautifully and magically in our lives.
So, the output, input, wasting all that, not up to us.  Up to the Reiki itself.
Hope that helps,
Blessings on your path with Reiki, it’s a truly beautiful one,
Josslyn

Love Your Liver Tea

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA
Hello Reiki Friends,

I have been working with Marty at Sequim Spice and Tea for almost a year to have the perfect liver support tea. LOVE YOUR LIVER tea blend on the shelf at Sequim Spice and Tea is my favorite and my body loves it. It supports your organs, not a heavy detoxifying. Our organs will do that on their own if they have the proper support which this tea gives. This is not just a detox tea, this is an infusion that will help support your body function better in the whole process of detoxifying the body daily for your entire life. We detox every day of our life, we need daily habits to support this process better in this crazy world we live in. THIS tea is one of my regular GO TO daily helpers.

 

I have made it a daily habit to drink 2 to 5 cups of this tea mixed with sea salt/lemon or a tad of juice to mix it up a bit and my body is so much happier. When I’m off of it, I definitely feel a difference and it’s not good. I get more headaches, more tired, more of the detox symptoms I don’t like.
I brew a big pot every other day or every third day, keep it in a big glass jug in the fridge and drink it when I want it. I drink it as an ice tea but you can rewarm it too.
Blessings to you all, let me know how you like it, tell Marty I sent you in….
Josslyn
Here are the directions for this infusion:
Love Your Liver Tea – Organic peppermint, organic fennel seed, organic fenugreek seed, organic licorice, organic burdock root, organic flax seed, organic dandelion root, organic ginger root.
Infusions remove the easily extracted vitamins, minerals, medicinal properties and volatile oils from herbs. An infusion is stronger than tea.
Instructions on how to make it.
The water should have just begun to boil since vigorously boiling water disperses valuable volatile oils in the steam. Be sure to cap your infusion vessel quickly and tightly to further preserve these oils. A quart canning jar with a screw on lid works well as an infusion vessel.
1. Boil 34oz water.
2. Add 1oz. herb to your infusion vessel.
3. Pour freshly boiled water onto herbs, stir.
4. Immediately cap tightly to preserve volatile oils.
5. Let infuse 4-8 hours, or overnight.
6. Strain and press the infusion from the herbs.
7. Drink 1-2 cups per day and refrigerate extra. Consume extra with in a day or two.
If this infusion is strong or bitter you may add a peppermint tea bag, or some other flavorful herbal tea (like lemon zinger), to the infusion vessel or dilute the finished infusion with juice.

My Psychic Healing Teacher Coming to Sequim!!

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

I have worked with Candia Sanders for 12 years or more, I have lost track of time.  She is a natural channel for Divine Healing Energy and has taught me to think possibilities, not limitations.  She has taught me to always ask Divine for answers and they will come and she has taught me to understand my very sensitive energy like no one else ever understood me.

She’s amazing and wonderful and I’m grateful to have her for a third time, come to Sequim to talk to my clients and students.  This event will fill up fast, so get your R.S.V.P. IN.  My living room seats so many people, then we are on laps.  This event will be FUN!!

Blessings,
