Reiki For Families, Groups, & Couples

We are all in this together. Some of us are working from home while homeschooling our kids and trying to keep it all going while we honestly don’t know what tomorrow will bring. What we know for sure is that Reiki can help us relax. But where are we supposed to go to have that relaxing alone time? Nowhere. Everyone is home. And they need to chill out, too. I have a solution.

QOTW – Does Meditation Help You?

Does meditation help you_

For me, absolutely. I feel calm, centered, and clear. What might change is how long it takes to get there, based on what’s happening in my life. Sometimes I end my meditation in a totally relaxed state. Other times I am recharged and bouncing with excitement. I always feel better after meditation.

Meditation is always combined with Reiki for me, which I know makes meditation more relaxing. I didn’t meditate much, if at all, before I learned Reiki, so I can’t say for sure how much more effective meditation is with Reiki. I’m curious about advanced meditators who incorporate Reiki after years of meditating without it. Hmm. Maybe we’ll have some here who can illuminate with their experience.

Your turn.

Spotlight: Distance Reiki

Reiki practitioners generally believe that all things are made of a form of energy. If that energy isn’t balanced, the person, animal, plant, or what have you, doesn’t feel right. That’s when a Reiki practitioner could be called on to help the receiver put the energy back into balance. I am also fond of calling it a relaxation therapy because that is the effect it has on me when I receive it.

A distance Reiki session can take place in person, over the phone, or even on the other side of the Earth with no physical contact between the sender and the receiver; which brings me to the subject of this post.

How well does distance Reiki really work? If you call me for help with something that is bothering you, whether the bother is a physical, mental, or emotional one, is there something I can do that will make a difference for you?

I have asked two of my clients to share their experiences with distance Reiki.  This is what they had to say:


What do you experience during a distance Reiki session?
Client 1 answered: “Even when taking a distance Reiki session I can feel the energy surround me. It’s a wonderful relieving feeling to know that distant Reiki can really work.”
Client 2 answered: “Release of illness, burdens, fears, hate, anger, and many other unwanted feelings.”


How do you feel after a distance Reiki session?
Client 1 answered: “I feel very sleepy for about two hours then I start to clean my home and everything else I can. I also feel re-energized.”
Client 2 answered: “Light spirit, love, joy, peace, and a feeling of well being.”



Do you feel that distance Reiki “does” anything?
Client 1 answered: “Absolutely. It makes my world an even easier place to live in. I really can build up the stress level in my life.”
Client 2 answered: “Absolutely.”


Do you recommend distance Reiki to others?
Client 1 answered: “I have, yes. I usually tell people about it because of the way it makes me feel about myself.”
Client 2 answered: “Positively.”


How many distance Reiki sessions have you experienced?
Client 1 answered: “Wow! I’m really not sure, but I think I have received at least twelve.”
Client 2 answered: “Approximately 20.”


Will you use distance Reiki in the future?
Client 1 answered: “Only if I need it. I do a lot of meditating on my own time, plus yoga classes.”
Client 2 answered: “Without a doubt.”


Now for some background. Client 1 grew up in an extremely abusive home and experienced more physical, mental, and emotional abuse than I would have believed possible. Client 1 has, with the aid of Reiki and other practices, gone on to live what most people would consider a normal life.

Client 2 has experienced devastating losses including all siblings, three children, both parents, and a spouse of more than forty years. Client 2  lives what most people would consider to be a normal life. They would never guess at the levels of loss that came before they met.

Distance Reiki is one of the most miraculous experiences I’ve ever had. If you have the opportunity to receive it, I strongly encourage you to try it.  The technique is taught during level II training.

Please feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments below.

Let’s Talk About Reiki I Class!


Reiki Class Experiences (1)

Gina’s answer to this question from her Reiki I class, way back in 2006, is two answers. We all know how much she likes and better than or. Her top two memories from the class were:

  1. Finding out how easy self-Reiki is.
  2. The disk (remember, it was 2006! We used floppies) Cyhndi (her teacher) gave her to print out pages and pages of interesting information about Reiki. She still has those pages in her Reiki notebook. If you’ve taken an in-person class with The Reiki Cafe, you’ve seen the green binder she carries them in.

Nina says that her favorite part of Reiki I was taking the class with her cousin and the fascinating revelations Reiki brought while the class shared their attunement experiences and what brought them to Reiki in the first place.

We’d love to hear about what your favorite part of Reiki I was. Tell us in the comments!


We are taking names for our next Reiki I classes in the Dallas, Texas area.

If you are ready to start your Reiki journey, contact us here or through e-mail: for more information.


As always, thank you for the time you spend with us!
