My Reiki and Spiritual Journey

Updated on February 17, 2011

My Reiki Journey

First of all, you might be wondering what reiki is.

rei means God
ki means life force energy

It aids in relaxation and stress reduction. How? You simply place your hands on someone and a healing energy comes through your hands. Touch is healing in and of itself, research has shown that ill infants who are touched get well much faster than those that are neglected. This is part of human nature.

Here is a website to tell you more about reiki

Reiki info

One must be attuned by a reiki master to have reiki. Once you are attuned you can do reiki.

The energy is a healing energy.

My Reiki Journey

My journey began in 1994. I was in a woman's group. Many of the women decided to get a reiki attunement so I did too. I got reiki level I and II and until 2007 that is what I was. I became a reiki master in 2007.

I had a reiki treatment done on me before I got an attunement. I could tell some kind of energy was there and it was healing.

Once I could do reiki also I did it on me and others any time I could.

I used to have asthma and reiki could make it so I could breathe better when I would do reiki on me.

It works well on helping headaches and migraines go away fairly quickly.

It is not a magic cure however and will not instantly take cancer from the body. What it does is helps people on the etheric fields, the energy before it goes into being a physical illness in us.

Once you are reiki level II you are taught symbols. I like to use the cho ku rei often. It makes your reiki much more powerful when you use the symbols. Taking the symbol to the 10th power just makes it that much more powerful.

Cho ku rei symbol

We took aura pictures of us before and after a reiki treatment and you could actually see that our auras were different. I can't find my after reiki picture but you can see the before shot on my I can see your true colors in your aura lens.

I have helped people's headaches and my own go away. I have had pain in my body ease from the use of reiki. I have helped others feel better with reiki. We use it on our pets as well. It is more intense for pets than humans. They are very sensitive to energy.

"The minute I heard my first love story,

I started looking for you, not knowing

how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,

they're in each other all along.

I have phrases and whole pages memorized,

but nothing can be told of love.

~ Rumi

Sally's website is here:

Four Fold Way

Kathryn taught us alot of these ideas and I love the wisdom contained in this book. I have a lens on the book at my Angeles Arrien lens that goes into the details of the book more

The Four Agreements

This is a book I just was attracted to so I bought it and read it and am still working on the agreements. They are great and will help you deal with life on a new level. One of the agreements is to not take things personally. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

Koyasan: Reiki Sound Healing

Poetry for and from the Soul

This book has alot of my poems in it.

Sterling Silver Amethyst Cho Ku Rei Pendant Reiki Pendant Jewelry

The Collective

Jewels of Awe

This is my first published book of poetry. The picture below is the title poem. I wrote it in 2001

The Illuminated Rumi

I have this book and love it. It inspires me every time I open to read Rumi's poetry. The pictures in it are very cool!


My ex husband and I went to this lady. I have never felt reiki like she did. It was an awesome energy through her hands that brought up emotions in me that were like tidal waves causing crying fits and issues to come up that I had not known were there. Once the tears were spent I felt so clear and lighter than I had in years. Her healing was just an awesome experience! She also told me things about me she could not have known. She mentioned past life stuff as well related to my ex husband, telling me I had lost him in a past life and saw me grieving over him as I stood at Stonehenge. She tapped into my thyroid disorder I have and told me to have it checked. Turns out months later my medication needed adjusted. A very unique and interesting experience.


Kathryn Leeman

She was not my reiki teacher. However the woman's group was hers. She was my teacher along my spiritual journey. She does healing heart retreats as well as other retreats.

Kathryn Leeman

Kathryn does past life regression, hypnotherapy and many different things.

I used to go to a Satsang group she did as well as many other of her groups. It is an awesome energy to meditate as a group.

She also did 11:11 ceremonies. I participated in one or two of them.

She is an awesome person you might want to check out her website.

If you are in southern California go see her.

What she does:

Life Purpose & Direction

Regression Therapy

Guided Imagery

Prosperity & Abundance


Grief Counseling

Communication Enhancement

Health & Well-Being

Childhood Traumas

In addition she also does N.A.E.T. (Natural Allergy Elimination Technique), Real-Time EEG Bio/Neuro-Feedback, Holistic Biofeedback Balancing, and Meditation Techniques. She also offers Aura/Chakra Photography and Balancing for Physical, Mental, Emotion & Spiritual Alignment

You Can Heal Your Life

I have this book for over a decade or closer to twenty years. It is a great book to refer to when you want to see the emotional cause behind and illness or disease in your body. Very useful if you like to do E.F.T. for healing


Moria's readings

She is does all kinds of different things. Check out her website to see if there is anything you might like to experience.

I loved talking with her. She is very accurate and tells you what will be helpful in your own life.

My poetry

My poetry is a reflection of my spiritual journey. My three favorite poems of mine are below:

Endless Beauty


Into being


Of a garden

Planted with

seeds Of joy

Growing into

Full blooms

Of peaceful contentment

Blossoming Into light

Filled of

Endless beauty

and the other poem is

Joy's Birth

I dreamt

I gave birth

To joy

And I fed her

As she grew

Into her fullness

Her smile

Opened hearts

Her presence

Inspired a world

That had forgotten

She existed

She taught many

As she aged

Showing them

That beauty

And love

Peace and happiness

Did not need to be searched for

Or bought

But lived in their own hearts

Where they touched

God's grace

The third poem is this one:

The Collective

Beauty becomes me

In the mystery of my soul

I hunger for what is not

Touched with the human hand

The mystical revelation

The shaman's song

The connection

We all long for

In this dance of intimacy

The learning

I discover

The many parts that make the whole

Encompassing the heart

Of humanity

In the palm of my hand

I reach the destination

Reborn by this epiphany

That deep down

In the center

Of myself


All others

Those are the two poems on the posters I put on here that I sell at my zazzle store. To look closer just click on the posters on this lens.

This is me hiking through Na Pali on Kauai

Great music to play while doing reiki

      I loved this lens! I was attuned for Reiki 1 and 2 a number of years ago, and I agree, it works well. I had made the connection that the "cho ku rei" sounds a lot like how the Japanese would pronounce "chakra". I'm guessing it's a real connection....

      Great lens, I too would like to use Reiki, it's on my list of many things I want to do in life. My father got into it in his 60's and treated cancer patients for pain, he still does some but not as much now, he has Parkinsons and it is harder for him to focus. I think it's wonderful how we can help each other through our energy fields.

      Great Lens! Reiki is one thing I haven't had and would love to. but my energy is overly-sensitive and i don't let just anybody mess with it. I always say "i'm very sensitive. a little goes a long way with me" they replay, yes, yes I understand. and then I leave all messed up. The last time this happened was with shiatzu. my intuition about the guy was good, but once he got going, i knew he hadn't understood me and i didn't tell him to stop - my fault.

      Does anybody have any recommendations for finding a good energy worker, besides intuition?

      5* and Fav

      I love having my Reiki Attunments. Everything came together the way it was suppose too. I too, was in a womans group and everyone was being attuned except for me. It was not until I had my vision did I believe it was time for my attunements. Be sure to put this lens in Reiki Headquarters Group Also Congrads on making Giant Squid Status!
