Reiki and Ghosts. Good Mix?

You are probably asking yourself, “What does reiki and Ghosts or Spirits have in common?”

Is there a place to practice reiki when investigating the most haunted places around us? There is a lot of commonality and connection between ghost hunting and the practice of reiki.

Let's begin by understanding what reiki actually is. According to Live Science, reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word characters of "re" (meaning spiritual or supernatural) and "ki" (vital energy). Reiki is "a therapy often described as palm healing or hand-on-body healing in which a practitioner lightly places hands on or over a patient's body to facilitate the client's process of healing. It is (therefore) believed that this vital energy can be channeled to support the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Being a Reiki Grand Master and a Paranormal Investigator, I never really considered using reiki in investigating the paranormal. But amazingly, I found myself using it more and more as we do our investigations, with great success. 

The common ground between both is energy. Reiki is Universal Energy and the paranormal is, well, energy.  So, when dealing with spirits or ghosts, you are dealing with energy. 

The first method I use my Reiki for when it comes to paranormal investigations is protection. With the power of Reiki, I offer protection for myself and my fellow investigators (especially if there is one who is an easy attraction for spirits). In addition, prior to an investigation, I will discover what kind of energy in place, by doing a walk through. By doing this, I have given myself (and my team members) a heads-up on what to expect. Then, once we regroup for the investigation, I make sure everyone has protection of some kind. For those who need extra protection, I place a bubble around them using my reiki. With this, they're cleared from any bad energy that they may have been given by a malevolent (or just cranky) ghost/spirit within the haunted property.

From these exercises, I become fully aware when my energy is going to be beneficial or a danger to me and my fellow investigators.

With my reiki classes, I ensure that my students learn this skill, and are able to put it into action when they engage in ghost hunting. My students learn when to use and turn off their energy. I include how to use their energy in finding entities and how to help identify if found spirits need help in moving on from their trapped status to the other side -- energy can be used to release them if they allow you to.

When entering into an aggressively haunted place, I'm almost always challenged by how much energy I might need to expand communication, or when I should call it quits. Can my energy be a danger to myself and the other investigators in the group?

Here are just a few of the questions that I'm often asked as a reiki practitioner:

  • Can reiki be used as a way to remove entities onto the next plane? 
  • What are dangers of bringing home a spirit attachment or two, if there are any?
  • Can this draw other entities, spirits, or negative entities or demons to me or my team? And how do we deal with this if it happens?

These are just a few areas we look at in the class. There is so much to learn about reiki and the paranormal, and in today's society both are ever changing for the good of all. 

From this, I felt compelled to offer public classes to teach the proper practice concepts and the influence in the field of spiritual communication and discovery.
