By Astrid Lee, Reiki Master
A personal note
I would like you to celebrate with me! Georgia Straight, a Vancouver newspaper with a quarterly lifestyle magazine ‘Mind Body Soul’ has dedicated a page to Reiki! (Vol. 4, #11, Summer ’08). I am honored to be quoted for about a third of the article, as follows:
‘Master reiki practitioner Astrid Lee describes it this way: “Reiki, in a practical sense, is the universal life force that is channeled through a practitioner or a reiki master ~ and is channeled through a receiving person, who is usually lying on a massage table fully clothed. The reiki is sent throughtout the body. Usually we work from chakra to chakra, from head to toe, and from front to back.”
“Unlike traditional therapeutic treatment”, Lee said “a reiki master does not get tired from giving a treatment, but is reinvigorated after working with the life energy for an hour. And the benefits to the recipient can be measured by how reiki goes to where it is most needed”, Lee said.
[Lee has also organized a worldwide healing group: We Are One Wold Healing.]
“Reiki is an industry where I start to feel that, around the world, we are starting to connect with each other,” Lee said. “People like to be part of a greater team, and I think that is why the [We Are One World] Healing group has grown so much. People find it, they love it, and they like the idea of connecting with other reiki practitioners, or other lay people, for healing the planet and all humanity.”
There are hundreds of Reiki masters and practitioners in Vancouver. I feel privileged to have been chosen for an interview. Actually, this is the time to thank the angels for their help.
So, celebrate: Reiki ~ World Healing: in the news, in our head, in our hearts, in the world.
