Reiki & the Spirit World
It is no surprise that those existing on planet Earth are becoming more aware of the cosmic shift in frequency that is in motion. We are in a constant state of movement and evolution. We as a united family, are slowly becoming more conscious of the Universal connection that exists and integrates us all as a collective matrix of energy. There is a profound and expansive ‘Shift’ taking place that is slowly opening us more spiritually and consciously on deeper levels if we chose to be receptive to it.
This is where the healing energy of Reiki exists; this vital Life Force frequency is ever present. It is so important that when you come for your session that you are open and receptive to this healing vibration. Being resistant and closed off only stifles the process and denies you of the full potential of your wellbeing. Healing cannot be forced upon you; it is collaboration between Practitioner and Client that activates your own innate ability to balance and heal by surrendering with trust to shift on all levels and layers of your physical and spiritual self.
We are energetic, spiritual beings evolved from the material of exploding stars. We are stardust and ever connected to the Universal pulse of Life. ‘Spirit Energy’ is within and around us; it is a vibration of its own, as we all are individual and unique frequencies of light.
Sometimes a client will come to their Reiki session expecting to connect with love ones that have passed, they have a preconceived idea that ‘Reiki’ is about Mediumship and that a Practitioner should relay messages from spirit or to provide a psychic reading during or after their session. This is not so. Reiki is Healing, not Mediumship or Clairvoyance, although they can go hand in hand. It seems these days the ancient, spiritual art of Reiki Healing has been stretched and changed so much so, that people are a little confused with the concept of ‘Reiki Healing’ itself. The more attuned you are to your own unique frequency, the more capable you become to connect spiritually and intuitively, which provides you with the avenue to enhance your own ability to connect with those that have moved into the ‘Spirit Realm’. Reiki can help with this process, to help you develop spiritually and this is a beautiful gift.
In my sessions at Crystalight Energy Healing, I do combine Reiki energy with that of crystals and the resonance of the Tibetan singing bowl, which enhances the healing session, shifting, entraining and dissipating energy where necessary. This process can align with the frequency where ‘spirit beings’ exist, whether they are loved ones, guides or others. ‘Spirit’ can be described as the ‘essence of life’, the light that vibrates at a frequency that no longer resonates with the vibration of ‘life’ as we know it in our day to day reality, that which is dense and tangible. It exists within a different layer of existence that is accessible on another frequency. Those that have passed are ‘spirit energy’ an element of ‘All that is’; they are a frequency of light and can shift and change, and take on a form that can connect with ‘this reality’ as we know it. They can shift their frequency so that it can be interpreted as a message or contact by our human senses and our intuition. This takes energy and focus and the ability to resonate at a place where both can meet.
Personally I am Clairsentient, which is a psychic gift and the ability to be physically and emotionally sensitive to my own life, to the feelings of others, to nature & animals, to the ‘spirit world’ and to the environment. I am an Empath which helps me understand the depth of emotion that others experience. Much of the time I can feel the emotions of others both in the heart and body and I can sense spirit energy around me when I open myself to this vibration and allow myself to focus on it. Sometimes during your Healing Session spirit or premonition may come through, or I may experience briefly a trauma that you yourself have experienced. This is for the purpose of understanding to assist in your healing, as this is my sole intention.
‘Spirit’ generally vibrates at a very high frequency, and when the healing connection occurs it is generally also on a high vibrational frequency, one that is always present but we don’t always resonate with unless we are very healthy beings! Many Empaths and Sensitives are Clairsentient, which can be a very helpful gift in Reiki healing to assess the client’s energy shifts, subtle changes and depth of mood and flow of energy throughout the subtle energetic field. It can also be helpful in calling in assistance from ‘Spirit’ during prayer before your session for the purpose of your Healing and this can also include your passed loved ones. This actually happens quite often, they appear usually briefly as a being of light, I don’t use my energy to help them manifest into full figure as I can sense that they are there to assist and that is what is important. It is not so much to bring messages (although they do at times) nor to bang on walls to get attention! They subtly and gently appear as Light Beings to help lift the healing vibration for your wellbeing and you may sense them there and some clients visualise them in the ‘mind’s eye’. It is an additional loving energy that helps to bring you into balance. If this occurs often I will relay this phenomenon to you but it is not always necessary unless you ask specifically if this does happen in your session that you want to know. The purpose of your session is to surrender, relax, balance and heal.
It is true, that while the subtle body is open to Healing and the Practitioner is channelling Reiki energy through, subtle messages or images may come through from the 'spirit world' but this is not the purpose nor the focus of your Reiki session. The focus is you. If a Practitioner is distracted by a passing entity that has been invited in while you are vulnerable the energy will change and it may not benefit the healing. This is why my Healing Room is sacred to the purpose healing, as are you as my client. The space is cleansed physically and energetically as are my crystals. I do not open the veil to any and every spirit being, as my focus is to bring Reiki healing energy in for you. My full dedication is to the healing process; opening the door to the spirit world can cause energetic disruption and unwanted entities may enter the room even with the best intention to protect the space. This is why it is important to be specific in the intention of the sacred space. Contact with the spirit world, although it is something I have done for people outside Reiki practice, is not the purpose of Reiki in your healing session.
There are people who combine their gifts and advertise themselves this way, which brings people with the expectation to connect to those that have passed, and although this can be a healing experience, it is not Reiki but it may be what some people want and I respect the differences in the practice of others.
During a Reiki treatment the client and the Practitioner are open and vulnerable; this is why there is prayer and ritual before and after your session, with the deep intention of healing and protecting the client for their highest good. It is not a time to open a portal for the spirit world to step through unless they are specifically invited for the pure purpose of assisting in the healing itself.
Grief from the passing of a loved one is emotional energy; it can manifest in the physical body and sit in the aura. This emotion may be left unprocessed and cause a person to carry a heavy burden, it may also include other emotions such as guilt and confusion. Reiki can help to dissipate the denseness of this energy so it can be more easily processed. Just like digesting a heavy meal when you have ingested too much food, the energetic body also needs space and time to digest heavy emotions, process them and eliminate that which is no longer needed for the process of grieving. Memories of a passed loved one will remain and may bring up emotions from time to time and this is healthy to help you recognise and experience feelings of love and to honor connection. But if this grief sits inside the body without being addressed and processed it can build up to a point where this energy becomes distorted and confused and invades everyday life for longer than necessary. This situation may require professional grief counselling as well as Reiki healing to help you heal and move forward.
Two people can listen to the same music and have a totally different response.
It is similar to being open to Reiki, it is within the intention, within our willingness to channel and receive the healing energy, which creates the shifts and changes to our wellbeing.
Your safety and wellbeing is my duty as your Reiki Practitioner and the Crystalight Healing Space in a sacred sanctum for you to feel comfortable, to trust and open to Reiki Healing. Hoping this has provided some valuable insight.
...With Blessings of Crystalight, Sonia <3

Depression, we all have heard about or experienced it at some time in our life. Fortunately, depression has ‘come out of the closet’ these days and we are having more conversations about this debilitating disorder and recognising its affect on the quality of life. This subject is close to my heart, as I worked with young people suffering with this disorder for many years and it has also touched members of my family, including myself.
Our mind has a powerful influence upon our lives, when a pattern of negative talk sets in, it feels like it takes control, replaying the same story, the same dark narrative over and over in our mind. After some time you may feel you can’t get out of that mental haze, it's more than saddness, you are trapped inside your own head. The more we understand these patterns of thought and how important it is to rewrite our story, the closer we get to opening a fresh perspective of ourselves and our life.
An important step in the direction of change is ‘Disrupting the Old Patterns’, a process of stepping out of the old narrative, interrupting the cycle and replacing it with a new positive one. Resetting our mindset is healthy; it refreshes our perspective and aligns our future with the reality of what is actually happening today.
We tend to set high expectations of how our life will look, what we should achieve as the years pass us by and sometimes we can be so determined to achieve this, nothing will stop that thought pattern, we resist the need for resetting our view forward and this puts our mind in a loop. We only see our failure to achieve our goals and we become self-destructive, replaying the same old story over and over, trying to find a way out.
Being passionate about what we want in life sets up a 'relationship with our future', a strong bond that we hold close and tight. While it is great to have a goal, a picture of how we would like our ideal world to be, we also must be flexible and open to the reality of how life actually is at any given time so we don't hold onto disappointment should things end up differently.
We are a vast flow of energy that is ever changing; trying to adapt to our environment... this is Life.
We need to shift, to transform and evolve in order to grow. What keeps us in a negative space is our mindset. We don’t want to let go of the 'relationship we have with what we thought life could be'. A bond that we have so deeply immersed ourselves in, invested so much time and energy in. This is fundamentally why it is so hard to immerge from the dark cloud of Depression.
Most of us strive for healthy, loving relationships with other people; it’s the same with our mindset;
Depression is a relationship with our thoughts that we do not want to break up with, albeit a destructive one. Once we replace it with a new and positive connection of thought, we can begin a new relationship that we can nurture and grow with.
When these stress-induced patterns are well formed and the negativity builds so intensely that we can’t cope anymore, we might suddenly “break-up” with them, releasing the mind blocks in an explosion of emotion. Rather than continuing to focus on the inside, we spontaneously release emotions attached to the mindset and focus on the outside, bursting out of the cloud. The bond then is forced to “break-down”, this is where a “Mental Break-down” or “Nervous Break-down” may manifest itself.
Helplessness can be changed around by creating new experiences and doing more of what we love to do. There are many different ways to disrupt the depression cycle, resetting these destructive patterns by disrupting the cycle to start a new is one way that can help.
It is more beneficial to recognise these problems before they get to breaking point; to make gentle shifts in thinking and proactively altering our lives to move in a more positive and productive direction as we recognise them taking a negative turn. Crystalight Energy Healing sessions can help to initiate these changes.
I had a client share with me one day after her appointment, that the sound of the singing bowl gave her “mind some time to rest”, she “couldn’t think of anything” at that moment in time. She recognised how important it is to allow space for deep relaxation, to switch off, so new directions can be set and healing can take place on all levels.
Book your appointment and begin resetting your future!

Just the other day I was asked, "So, how does Reiki work?
It is a question that has been asked many, many times; it is a question that is sometimes hard to put into words that are accepted by the inquisitive and critical mind.
It is like responding to "What is Love" or " Are ghosts Real? or "What is the colour of Air !?"
It's another 'something' that we can not see, (unless you are lucky enough to see Auras!
It is something we have to experience to truely know the power of its existence.
Science plays an integral role in our lives as human beings, we rely on results, analysis and documentation of such a wide range of curiousities and consumables. There are trials that have been conducted to find evidence of how Reiki works but not enough to satify the skeptical mind.
But really.."Does there have to be a logical answer to everything in life?"
If there were answers to every question that satified every mind, what would drive us forward and keep us wondering and searching for our Truth!?
Reiki has been accepted and included into many Healthcare Institutions now and practiced all over the World. Its popularity speaks for itself to those who choose to listen, but there are still those that brand it as an "unsubstantiated practice" no matter how many testimonials there may be.
Ultimately, we need to seek our own experiences in order to find our individual Truth.
So, my response to the Queston is:
"When you aren't feeling well, what do you yearn for?
Touch. I believe we all seek connection and the closest connection is touch.
What happens when you give or recieve a hug? How do you feel?
Take a moment to think about it, imagine the feeling...
Your body has a similar response to Reiki treatment, all that is needed is very light touch with the 'intention of healing'.
Sometimes there is no physical touch and the Practitioner will work just above the body within the Aura, "touching" the energy flowing out of your body with the intention to heal. It is in the 'healing intention' from both parties, that the power of Reiki is activated.
When healing energy is activated your energy field changes, your vibration is lifted and your whole body, mind and spirit is altered.
It is through this positive change that healing begins, it creates a relaxation response that serves your immune system, nourishes your body and balances the frequency of your energy field. This permiates your organs, circulation, your whole self.
This exchange is like a 'group hug', because when the vibration of one person starts to resonate 'Healing', it radiates to all in that energy field, including your Practitioner! You have now initiated a positive effect for those around you and this in turn will enhance your whole Life.
"So you can see how it has a ripple effect, the more healing we do, the more healing is taking place."
Now all there is to do, is Try It !
See for yourself, you can only gain from the experience, even if it is only to answer this very question in your own words.
Treat yourself to the empowerment of Reiki and self-healing, what have you got to lose!
