On a recent trip to NYC, I had my first ever Reiki session. It was absolutely amazing. The experience was so powerful and transformative that I had to share it with you! I reached out to Sanna from Sanna's House of Reiki to share her story with you and give us some insight into what Reiki is and how it can help you. I hope you enjoy!
JB: Sanna, thanks so much for taking the time to talk with me. Can you give us a little intro and share a little about yourself?
SV: Greetings, My name is Sanna Vaarna and I welcome you to Sanna's House of Reiki.
First a love filled thank you to Jessica Brantley and Soulful Essence for the opportunity to be present here...
I have been practicing Reiki since 2007. I was guided to it by a friend and from the very first experience sitting in a Reiki Circle, I was hooked. To me it felt like a hug of pure love from inside out.
As time went by, those weekly Reiki Circles became a must and led me becoming a student.
Reiki deepend my meditation and opened a door to my true self.
“We all are unlimited divine celestial beings, One with the Universal mind, here to observe, uplift and Love”
JB: Sanna, that sounds like an amazing experience! Can you tell us a little about what Reiki is and where it came from?
SV: Reiki is a Japanese word for life force energy. It was re discovered by a Monk Mikao Usui in Japan. After years of searching and reading sacred scriptures, he meditated on a mountain for 21 days. No food or water and to many a miracle on its own. He started healing people by channelling this energy and even today, there are Reiki clinics in Japan, more popular than going to the doctor.
This form of healing was kept secret in Japan and was to stay there. A woman from Hawaii was diagnosed with cancer and had heard about Reiki from her relatives back home. She went to Japan for treatment, got healed and begged to learn and to share it with the world. Thanks to her, it is available to us all.
JB: That's so interesting! How can Reiki work to improve our health and what other benefits does it have?
SV: Reiki raises your vibration, clears blocks created by our day to day stress, unhealthy diet, habits and more. There are many health benefits, including anti aging. More Reiki you receive, more you start to see how life as if by a miracle starts to be positive. Self love, relationships, health, work, money, opportunities appear. Old negative patterns, friends, what ever is holding you back, starts to fade away.
Reiki can be used for humans, animals, plants, food , water, medications, clearing space.
Most importantly to create your sacred place.
JB: Sanna, thank you so much for sharing your gift! I had such a great time in our session and I can't wait to visit you again. I'm even more excited about sharing this wonderful gift with the Soulful Essence tribe!
