Reiki: Healing with the Universal Life Force
Reiki is the art of channeling the Universal Life Force for healing and wellness. Anyone can practice and use Reiki and everyone can benefit from it. I have been using Reiki in my personal journey of self-healing and incorporate it into my yoga practice, yoga classes and my doula services. I am now attuned as a Reiki Master Teacher. As a doula client, we can incorporate Reiki into at least one prenatal session, and it can be used during labor at anytime. Many times you wont know that we are using it, but that is the beauty and simplicity of Reiki.
Reiki for the Second Chakra: menstruality, fertility, pregnancy, birth & postpartum
Reiki is a gentle, relaxing mode of healing facilitated by an attuned practitioner. If you are seeking a new expression of menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, birth or postpartum Reiki is a safe way to access your body's innate potential for self-healing.
Don't know if you need healing? Here are some reasons you may want energy healing:
You are seeking holistic approaches to physically healing any menstruation, fertility, pregnancy or postpartum condition
You have been trying to get pregnant and you're not sure why you can't
You have experienced pregnancy loss and wish to heal this energy
You experienced a traumatic birth and wish to heal
You would like integration of the birth experience
Mother Blessing Ceremony
A Mother Blessing ceremony (sometimes called a Blessingway) is a gathering of the mother-to-be and her closest women family and friends to create a sacred bond of love, support and power as she prepares for the birth and the experience of motherhood. Each ceremony is unique to the mother and any rituals or traditions she is called to. The circle of women initiates a support team in the time of transition and through the powerful experience of birth. Because when the baby is born, a mother is also born, and she too needs to be received, nurtured and supported on her journey. A Mother Blessing is for a first-time mom or a fifth-time time - it doesn't matter how many children she has birthed, each experience is different and sacred. See What to Expect below for more details.
Postnatal Reiki & Sealing Ceremony
After the birth of a baby, regardless of the method, a space is open and empty within mother. The Postnatal Sealing Ceremony includes a cleansing ritual, blessings, use of essential oils and/or Reiki if desired, the "closing the bones" ritual and space for processing. The purpose of the ceremony is to close the physical and energetic doorways that were opened during the birth, to nurture the new mother so that she may nurture her new baby and to allow space for processing the events of the birth. After the ceremony, mother may also receive a belly binding which connects and supports this sacred time to the mundane aspects of motherhood.
After baby arrives a date will be set to hold the ceremony. I can come to your home and you only need a small, comfortable space on your floor for the ceremony. We work with and around baby, and I have given the ceremony while wearing a newborn.
The Sealing Ceremony may also be appropriate for pregnancy loss in conjunction with a birth trauma and loss ceremony. This may include a cleansing ritual, Reiki, blessings, the "closing the bones" ritual and space for processing.
Partners or other friends are welcome to attend if desired.
