WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki is universal life force energy. It is spiritually guided life force energy that comes from an enlightened source of consciousness. Reiki is also a system of tools and techniques for relaxation and stress reduction that promote healing. Reiki energy, when applied through Reiki sessions, trainings, and practice, always benefits and never harms. It is a powerful aid to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Reiki energy is a very ancient spiritual energy with tools and techniques adapted to the modern times. The Reiki energy itself is conscious and continues to adapt itself to best meet the needs of humanity, the Earth, and beyond. Reiki is a blessing that offers a healing and empowered way to connect with the gift of living a human life on Earth.

BUT REIKI CAN'T POSSIBLY WORK FOR ME, BECAUSE...

 Reiki heals the deepest, densest, most deceptive limiting beliefs, attachments, and blocks, such as:

  • Life must be hard 

  • Life is full of suffering, and it is unavoidable

  • Human nature is bad and evil

  • Humans are a lost cause

  • Earth is a lost cause

  • I’ll never be healthy and happy

  • Being healthy is impossible and healthy habits are too hard 

  • Spiritual awakening must be hard and take a very long time

  • Spiritual awakening must be painful

  • I cannot be enlightened in this lifetime

  • Heaven is not available on earth now, I must wait until after I die to maybe get a chance to experience heaven

  • Doing what it takes to be awake and healthy involves a lot of pain, suffering and challenges

  • My human body/mind/heart is flawed and cannot be healed 

  • I am a victim of life

  • External forces cause me pain and to suffer and there is nothing I can do about it 

  • I am a bad person and am not worthy of forgiveness 

  • If I felt more empowered I would not know what to do with the power, so it’s better if I don’t try at all to take back my power

  • I don’t deserve to be happy and healthy. 

  • If I am healthy and happy, no one will like me. (you will like and respect yourself, and find others who do the same!)

If you are attached to these beliefs and give Reiki a try, Reiki will help you release and heal these beliefs if you are open to let go.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REIKI?

One of the core benefits of Reiki is that no prior Reiki experience is needed to receive Reiki your first time. Reiki is very easy to receive in a session and very easy to learn to channel in a class.

 

Come as you are and receive what you need.

 

There are countless benefits, including:

  • the dissolution of stress, worry, anxiety, and fear into feelings of peace and trust

  • physical healing and empowerment

  • mental healing and empowerment

  • emotional healing and empowerment

  • spiritual healing and empowerment

  • downloads, insights, practical and spiritual guidance

  • connection to one’s inner voice, inner guidance, and Inner Authority

  • complementary, synergistic enhancement of any other types of spiritual and/or healing practices and therapies you may be using

  • extreme relaxation 

  • feelings of contentment

  • deep states of peace that linger on

  • inspiration + the motivation to take inspired action

  • feelings of hopefulness about the future

  • reminders about humanity's innately good nature, pure human nature

  • a feeling of "we got this," and "this is why I am here"

  • motivation to be of practical and spiritual service

  • immense support from Mother Earth herself

  • enhanced communication channels with Mother Earth and enlightened beings

  • deeper connection to and appreciation for nature and the Earth

  • seeing oneself as a valuable part of nature and the Earth

  • feeling like an empowered creator of a more loving, peaceful reality on Earth

  • receiving the fuel you need to take aligned action

  • clarity

  • sudden creative bursts or ideas

  • feelings of happiness, love, joy, and renewal

  • improved sleep and relaxation

  • awareness of your Authentic Beliefs, Perceptions, and Understanding

  • healing of the Culturally Created Self

  • empowerment of the Authentic Self

  • activation of your Authentic gifts, talents, skills, capacities, and abilities

 

The benefits collect over time, aggregate, and continue to expand, enhance, and provide incredible, limitless, infinite, and beneficial results. Additional 1-on-1 sessions, group experiences, and classes strengthen the positive results. The more you use Reiki and invite Reiki, the more benefits can be received and revealed. 

WHERE DOES THE HEALING POWER COME FROM?

Reiki is an enlightened source of infinite energy. The healing/empowerment in a Reiki session is done by Reiki energy, not the practitioner. The practitioner invites Reiki energy. This makes the healing/empowerment much more effective and pure than a session performed by someone who is only using their personal, limited energy. The less the practitioner is involved, the better. That is why the distant and online sessions work so well. It helps the practitioner stay out of the way as much as possible, so the recipient receives the best possible results directly from Reiki energy. The only requirement on behalf of the recipient is the willingness to receive positive results.

HOW DOES DISTANT REIKI WORK? ISN'T REIKI HEALING WITH HANDS?

As Reiki is universal life force energy, it is infinite, limitless, and unbounded by time and space. An apt analogy of how Distant Reiki works is the way that wireless internet works. Increasingly technology shows us how we can plug into limitless information without a physical plug! Wireless internet operates through electromagnetic fields. Reiki energy works through the very same electromagnetic fields contained within the Earth, technology, and the human heart. 

 

Technically speaking, distant Reiki works well through external technology, such as the phone, tablet, or computer, to meet in scheduled sessions or classes. Reiki also works via the intention to send Reiki at a distance to a recipient. This works best when the recipient has given his/her/their permission. 

 

In Reiki 1 & 2 training, students receive the Usui Distant Symbol HSZSN which allows Reiki to be sent at a distance. In Reiki Master training, students receive the Holy Fire Master Symbol, which amplifies this ability.

 

In March 2020 around the time the Covid pandemic and lockdowns began, my teachers William Lee Rand and Colleen Benelli received an upgraded Reiki energy meant to work even more synergistically with technology. This upgraded online Reiki energy allowed high-quality Distant Reiki Sessions and Reiki Classes to be held no matter how dire world events became. The results from both Online Distant Reiki Sessions and Classes have been dramatically positive. The Reiki community has been blessed with even more powerful healing results and expanded states of consciousness.

 

The best way to understand is to give it a try for yourself.

WHY SHOULD I RECEIVE A REIKI SESSION OR TAKE A REIKI CLASS?

I say if you are alive on Earth, then Reiki will benefit you. It even benefits the deceased! But I digress… Or do I? Haha.

Reiki keeps it LIGHT even during times of darkness and uncertainty.

 

Reiki is right for you if you want to feel better, more relaxed, less stressed out, and more “on purpose” in your life. Reiki is appropriate for anyone who wants to grow spiritually and better understand and live their life purpose in full. Reiki is appropriate for anyone regardless of their background and health condition. Reiki produces benefits that are specific to the highest priority needs of the individual receiving a Reiki session or taking a Reiki class, as determined by the recipient’s soul. Reiki provides physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual guidance, assistance, healing, and empowerment. Reiki heals anything that is blocking the highest potential of your soul, and reveals your Authentic Self, skills, gifts, talents, and deepest soul desires.

 

One of my favorite Reiki blessings is how it helps to make the unconscious conscious, and always leads me to my next right step along my self-awareness journey and spiritual path.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I RECEIVE REIKI SESSIONS?

This is a common question I receive, often even before a person has ever received a Reiki session. The answer depends on the person, and I tend to suggest to do what feels right for you. 

 

I have observed for myself and for others that weekly Reiki sessions are capable of catalyzing tremendous life improvements and positive transformation. It has been astounding to witness in my own life and the lives of others who receive a full session once a week or more. The healing and empowerment that occur in the session is fully integrated into the life, immediately. The ongoing weekly (or more often) sessions allow recipients to be fully supported, energized, inspired, encouraged, relaxed, and nurtured, as they make healthy changes and adjustments in their lives. These life improvements empower them to become who they truly are, their Authentic Self, with a strengthening sense of Inner Authority that guides them to live the highest expression of their life purpose.

 

It can be common for practitioners who have taken Reiki classes to not receive regular full sessions from others. This was the case for me for some time. However, when I started receiving more and more regular full sessions and group sessions, dramatic positive life transformation and improvements began to unfold. Even very deep patterns healed in full, with great ease, and were replaced by empowered solutions and healthier, happier ways of being. I encourage you to follow your guidance, and give regular sessions a try if you are looking to support your own personal and spiritual healing, growth, development, and prosperity.

My Reiki sessions for individuals and groups are very affordable to make regular sessions more accessible to others who sincerely desire healing and empowerment. The only requirements are to be open to receive and open to results.

IS REIKI A RELIGION? CAN I RECEIVE REIKI IF I AM A MEMBER OF A SPECIFIC RELIGION?

Reiki is not a religion. There is no Reiki guru. There is no Reiki dogma or set beliefs you must have or not have to receive Reiki. Reiki is supportive of all religions and spiritual paths, including the choice to not relate to religion or spirituality.

 

Reiki is all about World Peace for everyone, including all faiths and backgrounds, religious or otherwise.

 

Some Reiki practitioners relate to Reiki in a purely non-spiritual way, viewing Reiki as biofield energy that produces scientifically verifiable healing results through the recipient’s biofield.

 

There is also an opportunity for Reiki to become a person’s spiritual path, but that is 100% up to each individual.

 

Take what you need from Reiki and discard the rest. 

One thing I love about Reiki is that it has helped to heal my religious trauma. Reiki has allowed me to feel peace about my religious experiences in the past as well as to feel love and affection for members of religious and spiritual traditions that are not my own.

 

Moreover, Reiki has helped me clarify, uncover, and refine what my authentic beliefs and perceptions are about the nature of reality. This has been a most joyous and thrilling ride, that only gets more fun with time!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FLOWER OF HEALING™ REIKI?

One result that is consistent in Flower of Healing™ Reiki sessions is the experience of Samadhi. This is an ancient yogic term used in various Eastern traditions to describe a state of pure consciousness. It means "putting together," which can be understood as integration, absorption, and single pointed focus. Some yogis speak of it as the original perfection and the original balance. Samadhi is sometimes translated to bliss, liberation, enlightenment, oneness, and the cessation of karma. It is the experience of no separation between self and the Source of all that is.

Paramahansa Yogananda defines Samadhi, "A soundless state of breathlessness. A blissful super consciousness state in which a yogi perceives the identity of the individualized Soul and Cosmic Spirit."

WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT ASTROLOGY?

If you want to know WHY you are here from the point of view of your soul, then astrology may provide the answers to your deepest questions. Reiki led me to astrology to understand universal law. In the process, it has exploded my intuition and led to incredible depth and breadth of self-awareness across time and space.

 

For me, the astrological chart is a map of the psyche, something I have been studying since I became an undergraduate Psych major at Northwestern University in 2008. 

 

Astrology is more than just a blueprint of your basic psychology… Evolutionary astrology provides a map of where your soul has been in past lives and how your soul wishes to evolve in this lifetime. It has been incredibly empowering to have astrology confirm the guidance I have received intuitively about past life experiences as where I am headed.

 

What if you had a tool that provided guidance along your self-awareness journey and confirmed your intuition, thereby strengthening it?

What if you had direct evidence of the perfect relationship between you (microcosm) and the universe (macrocosm)? 

 

Astrology can reveal your gifts, talents, skills, and latent abilities, and the dynamics between your psychospiritual functions. Astrology helps make the unconscious conscious, so you can harness the power of your strengths to face the blocks and challenges that arise to propel you in the direction of your evolutionary growth and spiritual development.

 

Astrology reveals both individual energies and dynamics you will be working with for your lifetime, as well as the energies and dynamics of the moment that are influencing all life on Earth. It is extremely helpful to know what influences are affecting the people we share this planet with, and see how these energies are manifesting. 

 

Astrology provides a heads up about the emerging themes for you as an individual in relation to the larger whole. With this knowledge, you can consciously choose to create the highest frequency manifestation of the themes, energies, and dynamics that are available.

 

In essence, astrology offers a penetrating perspective that cuts through the veil of illusion right to the core of reality. 

WHAT IS GALACTIC ASTROLOGY?

Galactic Astrology examines the alignments between the positions of the planets and important points in the astrological natal chart relative to the position of the fixed stars at the moment of birth.

 

Galactic Astrology is a growing field of specialization, and my personal training in this field came from the innovative work of Julia Balaz.

As with many modalities, there are multiple right ways to "do" Galactic Astrology. 

The method that I practice allows me to validate the soul histories that I channel using Reiki. Obtaining a Galactic Astrology chart and correctly analyzing the alignments enables one to see into the soul history objectively.

A great deal of information can be obtained via the galactic charts when an individual gives their permission to access information about their multidimensional self.

Depending on the person, the person's intentions, the goals of the reading, and the timing of the reading, much information comes to light such as the soul origin, the soul history in the galactic, the soul history on Earth, the presence of galactic and Earthly spirit guides, involvement with Earthly and galactic groups, the soul purpose, the soul mission, karmic themes of this lifetime and prior lifetimes, and so much more!

The Galactic Astrology paradigm sees beyond the incredible past life and karmic insights typically given by examining Pluto and/or the South Nodes and opens up to a much vaster soul picture.  It is a cosmic view.

I work with Galactic Astrology in a unique way, as I am also a Reiki practitioner, and so healing is always a part of how I read charts and deliver a reading. You can learn more about my process in the description of my Galactic Astrology Soul Readings.

To see Galactic Astrology in action and learn more about how it works, check out my QSG Mini-Reading Playlist on Youtube. On my channel Taylor Norris Reiki, I also share New Moon and Full Moon Galactic Astrology updates, so you can be aware of the current galactic energies and how to work with them for your spiritual growth and soul evolution.

WHAT ARE THE DWARF PLANETS AND HOW DO THEY WORK IN ASTROLOGY?

Dwarf planets are the objects in space that aren’t quite big enough to be considered planets by astronomers. Technically, Pluto is a dwarf planet, and most astrologers agree that its status as a dwarf does not make it any less powerful an influence. 

 

Astronomically-speaking, the dwarf planets are mostly located beyond the orbits of Neptune and Pluto, but some like Ceres, are closer to Earth. Dwarf planets include: Haumea, Quaoar, Orcus, Ixion, Makemake, Sedna, Eris, Gonggong, and more!

 

Astrologically, the dwarf planets represent quantum psychospiritual functions within your psyche! 

 

To me, the dwarf planets correlate with the so-called 90% of the brain that isn’t being used, the “junk” DNA, and basically all the parts the human organism that science can’t explain, but the ancient sages, mystics, yogis, saints, and prophets so clearly understood, realized, and embodied.

 

The dwarf planets tend to have longer orbits, astronomically-speaking, and exert a slow, powerful, transformative influence upon the Earth. I believe the dwarfs can be worked with consciously to co-create MAGIC and the miracles of enlightenment.

 

In the natal birth chart, the dwarf planets reveal rich evolutionary details and secrets, giving clues to humanity’s latent interdimensional capacities. 

 

The dwarf planets represent the keys to unlocking the potential contained within each and every human organism. 

 

It is said that when astronomers become aware of new objects in space, these celestial bodies are revealing themselves to be consciously integrated for the purpose of evolution. 

 

As many of the dwarf planets have only become visible in the sky in the past couple decades, the time is ripe to onboard the psychospiritual functions they represent NOW, so we may consciously co-create the most beautiful, loving expression of humanity’s future on Earth.
