One night last week, I woke up in the dark before my alarm sounded and could not fall back to sleep. So I did what I always do – I put my hands on my heart and began doing a self-Reiki treatment.
For me, there is an instant sensation of expansion, connection, and physical grounding. I completely relax and can be much more present with whatever is coming up, or not coming up, in the moment.
I haven’t written a post just about Reiki lately, even though it is a fundamental part of my daily practice. My first Reiki class was in 1996, and I have probably done it every day since. The simplicity of the practice is so exquisitely beautiful.
So, what I am leading up to is a link to a fascinating Reiki podcast on Youtube by Nathalie Jaspar. It is called Dive Into Reiki.
Nathalie has interviewed over thirty established Reiki Practitioners. Check out the inspiring, high-energy Raven Keyes, who brought Reiki into operating rooms. There is a wonderful interview with one of my teachers, Kathleen Prasad, who was the first to offer Reiki to animals. The link above with Susan Mitchell’s interview particularly touched me, and I had no idea who she was before I found this podcast.
Jeri Lawson has a full-time healing practice in Oakland, California. She is available for Healing Touch, Reiki, and Clarity Breathwork Monday through Friday.
