The Chakras Continued, and the Dopemystic Reiki Healing Process
So, we've covered the 7 primary chakras...but maybe you're still wondering...what are chakras?!
It's important to note that chakras and auras are not one and the same. Auras are fields of luminous energy that surround a person like a halo, and can be seen or detected by those with intuitive abilities either with their physical eyes or their third eye (i.e. mind’s eye). Auras contain various colors, and can be affected by the energies of people around us. If you are practiced at energy work, you can also inject colors into your aura when you need them by manipulating your aura to send cues to the atmosphere.
Chakras are energy centers inside your body that are anchored in place. They are a reflection of where you're at mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
The Dopemystic Body Scan & Consultation Process
No Reiki Master today is the same as another. We each tend to personalize our services, combining healing methods with what we know best and what works best for an individual. In a typical one-on-one session, a client fills out an assessment form analyzing and identifying current diet, lifestyle habits, emotional stability, and personal concerns. Some also access this form online and send it by email, or through the site, to be reviewed prior to a scheduled consultation. During a consultation, the answers on the form are discussed with the client, and communication is opened to further analysis and feedback. A consultation also consists of a full body scan, in which certain tools are used to locate/pinpoint blockages and hyperactivity. The results of this scan are shared, and the client is then asked whether they'd like to proceed with a full session (this is always recommended, since one problematic chakra can disrupt others, causing a mess of an imbalance) or with a chakra-specific session geared towards healing/opening & activating/calming a certain chakra.
I always advise my clients to come in for routine body scans, and provide them with helpful information after a full session is completed to assist them with maintaining optimal balance and flow. In some cases, clients may need to consider the Spiritual Advising addition. This enables deeper insight into root causes of blockages, assisting with releasing hurt, pain, and past trauma while also providing constant support and coaching. Shadow Work is also helpful in these instances.
If you're on a journey of releasing past trauma and freeing yourself from suffering, or if you think you're ready to take the first step, you may be interested in reading my book, 30 Days to Self-Healing & Enlightenment. This book comes paired with its companion workbook and journal, which is filled with daily meditations, journal prompts, and exercises intended to guide the Seeker on a path to wholeness and fulfillment.
