Reiki and Essential Oils by Danielle Brogna
What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) originated in Japan as a hands-on technique to promote relaxation and stress reduction. Translated from Japanese, Reiki means spiritually guided life force energy. This life force energy is found in and around all living things. It is not just livings things; everything has an energy field and there is energy everywhere. There are sound waves, light waves, radio waves and micro waves around us all the time. Scientists have learned how to use technology to utilize energy in medical imaging equipment like X-Ray or MRI machines. They have also discovered how to use energy to heal the body with radiation and ultrasound therapies.
Reiki is just a natural non-invasive method of using this life force energy for body, mind and spiritual balance and is given by gentle touch. The body has energy fields that are called Auric Layers. There is a spiritual layer, a mental layer, an emotional layer, an etheric layer and a physical layer. The Reiki practitioner channels Reiki, spiritually guided life force energy, into these fields.
Everything around us has energy. The rocks have energy, the plants, the food we eat and even us! Therefore, anyone can learn Reiki.
REI: source spirit, holy spirit, grace, love, light, all that is
KI: life force, vital radiant energy in all life, that is all, unlimited, surrounds all
Life force energy (KI) is effected by your thoughts, feelings, words, conscious, sub conscious and health. The KI is guided by the REI. Reiki is Universal Energy.
How does Reiki Work?
The gentle healing art of Reiki brings peace and balance to all levels of the body, mind and spirit. This powerful energy technique creates deep relaxation, reduces stress, eases anxiety and accelerates the body’s ability to recover from any trauma. Reiki restores harmony in order to create balance of health and well being. Reiki Energy has a certain Frequency and the Reiki Practitioner is attuned to this Reiki Frequency. The practitioner is then able to become a channel or vessel for this energy in order for the client to receive this energy. Reiki can never do harm, only good and is divinely guided.

How do I find a quality Reiki Practitioner?
You can visit these websites to find a practitioner in your area.
The Long Island Reiki Connection (Long Island, NY, USA) (I am on Long Island NY)
The International House Of Reiki (Europe, Australia, Asia, North America, United Kingdom)
The International Association of Reiki Professionals (International Global Community)
You can also attend a local Reiki Circle to see if you connect or are guided towards someone there. Look for flyers in churches, community centers and health food stores.
What is a Reiki Circle?
A Reiki Circle is a great event! People without Reiki and Reiki Masters join together for a few hours. It usually starts with a guided meditation. Then all the Reiki Practitioners and Reiki Masters split up and take turns receiving and giving Reiki. Everyone usually gets to receive about 10-15 minutes of Reiki. All the people without Reiki watch and also get to Receive Reiki. This is a great first step into the world of Reiki! Every circle is different, but it’s always a wonderful moment to enjoy the company of likeminded people and be in the grace of light.
How do You Learn Reiki?
In the process of learning Reiki, the student goes through a series of energetic empowerments by a Reiki Master that opens and clears the energy centers of their body. This allows them to access this healing energy and bring it to those they are treating. Through a sacred process they are attuned to the frequency of Reiki to become a clear and open channel. To become a Reiki Master you have to become certified and train with a Reiki Master. I found that receiving Reiki from different Masters and attending different Reiki circles to find someone you admire and connect with is the best way to find your teacher.
How do Essential Oils Enhance a Reiki Session?
Reiki and Essential Oils work together perfectly to enhance the mind, body and spirit. My Reiki Masters have used oils not only in their life, but during Reiki Treatments. They educated me about the medicinal benefits of Young Living Essential Oils. These oils when inhaled, applied topically to the skin or diffused in the air can have a positive effect on the client and the practitioner.
What are the best Essential Oils to use during a Reiki Session?
Frankincense: When the Reiki Practitioner applies Frankincense to their hands it enhances the spiritual experience of the session. I like to rub Frankincense on my hands and then wave my hands over the clients face while they inhale three times at the start of every session. They can’t help but smile when they breathe it in! What a great way to start helping the client to feel good.
Idaho Blue Spruce: When Idaho Blue Spruce is diffused in the room it enhances the session and smells magical! Native American’s used to take the needles from Idaho Blue Spruce and make tea from it. The best Meditation class I ever participated in used Idaho Blue Spruce Essential Oil and it was an intense experience for everyone! Since then, I diffuse this oil for any client who would like it.
Stress Away: If a client is having a difficult time relaxing this oil works wonders. Take the Stress Away Essential Oil and rub some on the client’s chest, tips of their ears and the inside of their wrists. A practitioner can do this or as a patient you can apply the oils on your body yourself before a session.
There are so many other oils to use but those are my favorites! I also enjoy using Trauma Life, Present Time, Forgiveness, Inner Child, Harmony, Release and Valor.
What are the best Essential Oils on the planet?
Young Living Essential Oils are the world leaders in essential oil distillation. They are the only company in the world that owns the farms, grows, harvests, distills, tests, bottles and distributes their own oils. They are organic and contain no synthetic chemicals, pesticides, preservatives or extenders. They have been around for 20 years and are the world leaders.
