The Reiki Experience

My Reiki story began after my father’s death, when this healing art opened the doors to inner peace and feeling loved in all that chaos of overwhelm and grief.

I remember it like it was yesterday, when I walked into my music teacher’s room. He greeted me with “Your energy system is totally out of balance. What happened?” I started crying and told him about my dad’s accident, the coma and his brain death… all happening within just a few hours. The funeral institute wouldn’t let me say good-bye and my mother in law had arrived in the best of moods to tell me that “everything’s going to be alright”. “Nothing will ever be the way it was!!!” I moaned, not being able to understand at all, why the world keeps on moving while I felt frozen in shock. 

Werner suggested to do Reiki instead of the lesson and tried to explain it a little bit to me. “I don’t care what it is,” I told him, “as long as it helps.” He put some relaxing music on and  asked me to close my eyes. The first thing I felt were his hands holding my head in the most lovingly way. I felt safe and able to let my body rest. It was as if I was falling into a soft protecting bedding of downs that again was held in the hands of a divine power who loved me for who I am. Suddenly all traumatic thoughts and inner pictures were sucked out of my head as if God had turned on his vacuum to help me empty my mind. All that was left can only be described as inner peace and unconditional love. I came back into the room, transformed and calm, able to speak about grief with a clear mind. “Thank you for holding my head!” I said and was surprised when Werner shook his head and stated: “I never ever touched you!” In this moment I knew that learning this healing art will help me heal, not just from grief but old patterns and outdated beliefs.

I spent the following 7 years in kind of an apprenticeship with my Master Werner. He told me when I was ready to take the next level and what steps of self-growth I had to take to approach mastery.

After Reiki Level 2, I was able to alter my brainwaves to a higher vibrational state, and to understand, perceive and experience a sense of the unity of all things. There is no distance between things and no separation. Over the years I could more and more tune into the frequencies to receive unique visions and messages during treatments and attunements, that were meant to be shared with my students as a life guidance.

For me Reiki is pure LOVE, KINDNESS, HUMBLENESS, GRATITUDE and FORGIVENESS. There is an honor and respect, that masters remain students of the students they attune. Appreciation for the simplicity and power of Reiki grows as we grow and learning as we know, is a life-long process.

Reiki is pure unconditional LOVE that has to be shared to heal the world. Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.

I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, thank you! (Ho’oponopono)

As we approach the Christmas season, it may make sense to think about giving the GIFT OF HEALTH in the form of a GIFT CERTIFICATE for a Reiki treatment or as a down-payment for learning a Reiki Level.
