Chakras & Reiki

How can understanding the chakras and reiki help you?

Dis-ease in the energetic body can show up in our physical body, our state of mind and spirit. By understanding our energy and how it interacts with our environment, we can better understand the cycles of the body and understand dis-ease in our energetic body to prevent us from experiencing it in the physical body. The practice of reiki guides energy flow and to balance energy in the body to reduce dis-ease and to promote the recipient’s self healing abilities (NCCIH). By balancing this we encourage a healthy flow of energy through the body reducing stress, anxiety and pain or discomfort. In some cases, Reiki can prevent these discomforts.


Chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning “wheel of light,” a chakra is a wheel of light revolving in and through our energy system. These energy centers are also points of connection where our energy can flow from one to another, it can influence the energy of a room or the things around us. This connection flows both ways and allows us to experience and align with the energy around us. This energy is always moving but the vitality of the energy can be lessened if an area of our life is out of balance. This energy affects our physical body, our state of mind and our actions.

In order to understand the flow of life we must experience and understand our chakra energy.

There are 7 main chakras…

Root (1st), Sacral (2nd), Sacral (3rd), Solar Plexus, Heart (4th), Throat (5th), Third Eye (6th), Crown (7th).

Everything is energy. Your thoughts, your body, the water you drank, the hugs you felt…everything is energy, it is just vibrating at different levels of creation.

Transformation is the process of gaining more awareness and becoming more conscious of our unlimited potential and knowing that we are truly the infinite creators of our life. -Bettina Marie

At the heart of transformation, we learn to see others as ourselves through self love and unconditional love for self and others. Reiki supports this connection to our higher self and our souls quest.

Reiki translates into Universal (Higher power, spiritual wisdom, spirit, soul, quantum, spiritual consciousness) and Vital Life Force Energy. Together Reiki means Universal Life Energy or simply, Energy. Reiki represents oneness as we see others as we see ourselves.

Through hands on or hands off sessions or through distant sessions, your practitioner works with Reiki to balance your chakras. Reiki has been studied to help with stress, depression, anxiety, physical pain and cancer. Through balancing our energy we can regain harmony in the body.

Usui Shiki Ryoho (the Usui System of Natural Healing, is a Japanese Healing Art. This form was founded in Japan and the basis of the practice is referred to as self healing/self treatment. A little over 100 years ago a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, began a personal search that ended with his having contact with the energy Reiki. His practice grew and eventually Reiki was introduced out of Japan via Hawaii in 1937 by Hawayo Takata Sensei. It is passed on from one person to another through a specific initiation, teachings and a defined form of practice.

The Japanese word ‘reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and the Usui System is a way of working with reiki for healing of self and others. The word healing is used in the sense of regaining harmony and wholeness. Usui Shiki Ryoho addresses the whole person on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels and those that we cannot identify at the present.

The magic of reiki is that it is not limited by distance. Distance is a physical limitation. We accept frequencies such as electricity, wifi, cell phones etc. even though we cannot see them. Similarly, distant reiki needs to be tuned in and flows through the naturally occurring energy currents. The Reiki practitioner acts as a conduit and tunes the healing energy to the person receiving.

Request an Appointment for Distant Reiki Sessions


Appointments are 15, 30 and 60 minutes. Each appointment will begin with a quick consultation and an opportunity for any conversation you feel necessary. After each session you will be given time at the end to realign in your body and to move at ease.

Sessions in person may be hands on or off, whatever you feel comfortable with. These sessions may include crystal singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks and other instrument. I may also use crystals, essential oils and sage. If you are uncomfortable with any of these please let me know ahead of time.

For remote sessions you are asked to be in a private space with no interruptions. I prefer you lay comfortably as if we were in a session together, allowing your body to rest while feeling any changes or sensations in the body. During our consultation I will show you how to ground yourself at the end of the session. Although I will do this also, it is impactful for you to ground yourself in your space.

For any session type, please feel free to ask any questions I did not answer above.
