In my romantic relationships, Reiki has been instrumental. Reiki helped me to grow so much that I came to a place where I felt I had to leave my marriage in order to continue growing. Reiki helped me through the divorce process and co-parenting for 10 years, making it easier and mostly harmonious. Then I had a loving, Reiki infused relationship for over 6 years. When it was time for the relationship to end, Reiki helped me immensely with all the details and the healing.
Several years ago I started a work study program for a few of my students to send distant Reiki to my mother one hour a week. My mother has benefitted so much and despite years of previous poor health, has continued to get healthier in many ways and live much longer than we expected.
If you have life challenges, Reiki is such a necessity! Reiki has helped me through some very major life challenges without the need for antidepressant medication and with the ability to continue my work. In fact, my Reiki practice grew immensely through a period of ten difficult years. Reiki also helped those ten years to be some of the best years of my life.
In 1998, I began sending Reiki to my counseling clients during sessions and in 2000 began my formal Reiki practice with sessions and teaching. I even gave up teaching graduate courses at the University of Missouri – Kansas City in order to have time to teach Reiki. Reiki has helped me in so many ways with my counseling clients and I have written about it in the Reiki News. Reiki also helped me write other articles for the Reiki News and I have now written and published a number of articles. You can access them all for free under blogs and then Reiki Newsletters.
In the summer of 2001 I traveled to Hawaii and went to Hilo to see where Mrs. Takata had her Reiki clinic. In October I was able to travel to Japan with a group led by William Rand to see the Usui Memorial in Tokoyo and Mount Kurama outside of Kyoto. Additionally, we studied Reiki I and II with Mrs. Yamagauchi. She had learned Reiki from Dr. Hayashi and had practiced over 60 years. In October 2002, I traveled to Toronto and attended the Usui Reiki Ryoho International conference. There I studied Reiki Master with two esteemed Reiki teachers from Japan; Hiroshi Doi in his Gendai Reiki lineage and Hyakuten Inamoto in his Komoyo Reiki lineage. Hyakuten Inamoto is a student of Mrs. Yamaguchi.
I love teaching Reiki and feel like I am passing on a ball of loving light and energy that my students can then use to help themselves, their pets, their plants, their family, their friends, and the world! Many of my students have gone on to teach others.
I have been abundantly blessed by following my path with Reiki and growing closer to God. My life has become more rewarding, peaceful, and fun. I have made many new friends through teaching Reiki and I enjoy traveling to teach. I love giving Reiki sessions and teaching Reiki and can’t wait to share them with you! With Abundant Reiki Blessings,Karen Harrison
