Learning about Reiki...

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

Reiki is defined as universal life energy and it's main purpose is to help the body heal. Reiki combines the Japanese words: "rei" (universal life) and "ki" (energy). It helps to heal the body, mind, and spirit by balancing the energy flows of each chakra. The Reiki energy travels through the body encouraging the body's own healing mechanisms as it also creates a deep sense of relaxation. Some of the benefits of receiving Reiki are to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing.

A certified Reiki practitioner performs it and there are three levels of Reiki practitioners. On the first level, the practitioner learns about Reiki, the history, and gets attuned with the Reiki energy. On the second level, the Reiki practitioner gets attuned with the three sacred symbols and learns how to apply them on a session. On Reiki level three the person gets attuned with the Master symbols and learns how to attune others on the three Reiki levels with the intention of becoming a teacher at times. 

It is important to know that Reiki is used as a complementary holistic healing technique and that many times it is combined with other techniques to best help the client's healing process. It is activated by intention. The Reiki practitioner performs it by having the person receiving Reiki laying or sitting and the Reiki practitioner hovers his/her hands around the energy centers of the person's body. A typical session usually lasts from 45-60 minutes. Reiki practitioners charge an average of 40$-120$ per hour on average. For best healing results it is good to receive at least three sessions every so often.

Whenever the Reiki practitioner is giving Reiki, the practitioner is also receiving it. Reiki practitioners are always encouraged to practice their own self-healing before working on others. So whether you want to be exposed to a great practice that will bring balance, relaxation, and release unwanted energies, or want to become a Reiki practitioner; Reiki is a great holistic technique to add into your healthy lifestyle.

New year, new vibes!

The beginning of a new year is a great way to start fresh and tackle new life goals!

By Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer
Every year we set new resolutions but we seem to have difficulties completing them. Moreover, we feel incomplete or disappointed in ourselves for not reaching our expectations. Begin the year with new vibes by changing the complicated resolutions to three simple practices. It consists on taking each day as it comes, write daily to-do lists, and practice positive thinking. Combing these steps will help you to reduce anxieties of future stuff that might or might not happen, organize your life, and maintain a positive spirit at all times.
Having bills, engagements, and daily issues to deal with may put us in a place where we overanalyze or over-worry about situations. The more we worry, the more drained we may feel. Additionally, it makes us more vulnerable to negative energy to enter our path. We can reduce the chances of getting anxious for future stuff by remaining as p…

Improve your mood by feeding your soul

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

Our mood is constantly guided by our mental and emotional wellbeing. If we feel stressed, sad, anxious, or worried chances are that it will be affected. Not only does our mental/emotional aspect of the body may be impacted but also our physical body may feel the weight of our mood. For example, when we feel down or sad, many times we get physically tired or fatigued. It is also influenced by the environment we live in. If you live in constant tension and never release it you might be in a constant "bad" mood. Lastly, but not limited to, our mood may get triggered negatively whenever a stressful unresolved event happens to us. Whenever a bad memory gets triggered, or when we remember a piece or the entire stressful event our mood tends to merge its state from how we felt then with how we feel now. 
There are people who are able to have a better grasp of their mood, such as, being able to stay content no matter how many obstacles were encounter…

What is a Reiki Healing Circle?

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

A Reiki Healing Circle is a gathering of people, preferably in the shape of a circle with the intention of healing. The circle represents life’s continuation, with no beginning and no end. Each healing circle is uniquely created based upon the intentions and goals of the group. When you participate in a Reiki Healing Circle you receive universal energy to help release energetic blockages caused by stress and traumas and to bring balance to your body. By participating in this practice as a group, the energetic force tends to be more powerful as bigger amounts of energy are being released and transformed into love and light. 

What to expect? When you go to a circle you may be required to sit or lay on the floor so it is always good to be dressed comfortably. They usually last from one hour to one hour and a half if there is a big group. Many times the practitioner utilizes different meditation styles to help induce clients into a meditative state which ai…
