“What is Reiki Healing? – Find your Joy”


If you are wondering what is Reiki, journey in and find out what it is, how it works and how you can benefit from it.

What is Reiki.

     Reiki is a spiritually guided life force energy that can never cause harm, it always knows what a person needs and will adjust to create the effect that is appropriate for them. Reiki is the art of “inviting happiness.” Reiki healing is a “laying of hands” technique that is thousands of  years old.

We are alive because life force is flowing through us, it flows through us through pathways called chakras, and meridians. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the Aura. When this flow is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs or tissues of the body.

The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These feelings or thoughts attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in life force. This diminishes the vital function of organs and cells of the physical body.



How Reiki Heals


     Reiki heals by flowing thorough the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibration of the energy field in and around the body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In doing so, Reiki clears and heals the energy pathways, this allowing life force to flow in a natural healthy way.

Is Reiki a religion?


     Reiki  is spiritual in nature but not a religion. Reiki can be defined as a “spiritually guided life force energy”. Reiki will work whether you believe in it or not.

     My journey started with one step and continues today as a Reiki Master and giving back with love and Joy to all. I was unsure about this ‘new” thing called Reiki  and am immensely grateful to my daughter for opening my “eyes” and myself for being receptive and eager to step into this adventure of a lifetime and so much more. My first Reiki treatment was so calming and peaceful, it filled my souI. I was so ” Un-grounded”,  my Reiki practitioner thought I lived on the 10th floor of a high rise when I actually lived on the bottom floor! Wow!

As I continued receiving Reiki treatments, I  found that I released a lot of blocked energy with the Full Moon, I would be “guided” to Reiki during this time. Lol, I understand a lot more of “why”  this happened now.

I was “guided” to Past Life Regression sessions that healed past lives that were affecting me in this life without me even realizing they were. Spirit readings “guided” me and continue to “guide” me along this amazing journey. My faith in God, my spirit guides, archangels is unshakeable and so loving and full of Joy.

There is so much more but I don’t want to ramble on. Just be assured that you too can experience the amazement and Joy that I feel. And I am honoured  to be able to share my Joy with you on my website.


     Reiki  does no harm, it is gentle and only gives you what you are ready to release. Reiki has improved my life, I live my life by the Reiki  principles and am “grounded” and full of joy, love, happiness and peace. It really is amazing!


I wish the same for you and encourage you to start your journey……..one step. Find your Joy! Be sure to check back often as I share products and resources for you on my website https://laurelbishop.com  to explore as you journey on. Feel free to comment and ask questions.
