The Reiki Experience

The Reiki Experience....

This section is a space for clients who have chosen to share their Reiki experience with others. It is for the sharing of all the ways a healing session with Julie might be experienced. Your Reiki experience may be similar to one of these, or quite different.

“Reiki?  What is it and will my Mom be worried if she learns I’ve partaken in this?”  Those were my first thoughts when Julie suggested that I may benefit from a session.  I have to admit, I proceeded with skepticism since my experience with alternative medicine was limited to a few acupuncture sessions.

I met Julie on a Saturday afternoon for my first reiki session.  Feeling super pregnant, insanely hormonal and overwhelmed by all that was going on in my life, I immediately felt at ease by Julie’s calming nature.  She began by explaining all that she’d be doing but never once mentioned anything about what I might experience. Which in hindsight, I’m glad she didn’t because it allowed the experience to be mine, truly mine in whatever capacity that meant.  Since I hadn’t researched what “reiki” actually was (because I was so completely “nerded” out on learning all I could about natural childbirth) I was completely unprepared for the hour that followed with Julie.

We began with the “white heart” meditation, which immediately presented me with such an overwhelming vision it brought tears to my eyes. I figured this was just something of my subconscious so I tried numerous times to shake it with no avail.  Julie moved onto other chakras, each bringing an overwhelming emotion, vision or sensation.  After our session, I had no idea what to make of it all because I still had no idea what “reiki” was.  All I knew was I had just experienced something very personal in a very powerful way. 

Afterwards, Julie shared a personal reading of me, allowing me to once again be thoroughly amazed with her intuition.  What she told me were all things I had only discussed with myself in my own mind, how does she do that?!  I quickly ran home afterwards to look up each chakra and what it meant as well as the official definition of reiki; this magnificent experience I just had.

My subsequent reiki sessions brought experiences that mirrored my first.  The best thing about reiki was not only did it help manage my stress; it helped prepare me both mentally and physically for childbirth.  It goes without saying that I’ll continue reiki with Julie as the healing offers a great alternative to modern medicine."

"Birth is a very spiritual event. Women are pretty vulnerable during this time. During my second birth, I was not treated with kindness or respect by my caregivers. This left me feeling violated. Julie helped me work through my emotions. Using Reiki, she helped me direct my energy towards healing instead of anger and hurt. I recommend that anyone that has had a difficult birth in the past utilize Julie's expertise and training to help them prepare for an upcoming birth."

"After going well past my due date for the third time, I was searching for tools to help move into labor without medical interventions. I had a lot of emotions tied up in going into labor and giving birth. I'd already tried all the physical tricks to get my body going, but knew as an experienced birther- that fear can really hold a person back. I sought out Julie's knowledge and skills as a Reiki practitioner, hoping that working through some of my emotional blockage might allow my body to get moving. Boy did it make a difference! I felt tremendous release during the session and the baby shifted position markedly. As I drove away, contractions started. The revelations that were inspired by the time I spent with Julie made this third birth experience deep, empowering, and healing. To be honest, I was pretty dubious about something like energy healing that was not scientific. Now, I tell everyone to call Julie for some Reiki when they need to be emotionally open to birth!"
