About

Several years ago, my husband did a considerable amount of damage to his back while working.  His pain was constant and near debilitating.  At 26 years old, he was walking only with the assistance of a cane.  Recovery was a long and arduous journey, one that left me feeling utterly helpless.  No matter how much I wanted to, I didn't know how to ease his suffering.  For the first time, I couldn't fix the problem.  So I did my best, with the tools and skills I had, to help him heal and endure.

Not long after my husband began to improve, an internet friend asked me if I had ever heard of Reiki.  I was honest and told him I had not.  But what my friend told me intrigued me enough that I began to research the mystery of Reiki.  What I discovered fascinated me, but left me with even more questions that I had began with. A while later, I began my search for a teacher.  And when the time was right, I found one.  With her help, the world of Reiki opened up right before my eyes.  I discovered that the process is far less mysterious than I had thought.  But most importantly, I learned a skill that would bring relief to my husband's lingering pain.

From the very first class, I knew that I wanted to teach.  I wanted to empower others the way I had been empowered.  With each subsequent class, the desire grew.  And after earning my Reiki Master certification, the creation of Empyrean Reiki began.  I thank you for being a part of it.


What is Reiki?

Literally translated, Reiki is "universal life force energy".  Sounds mysterious, doesn't it? The truth is that Reiki is perhaps the easiest energy modality to learn.  It is a system that absolutely anyone with the desire can understand and excel at.  Reiki in the simplest of terms is a technique from Japan that promotes relaxation and facilitates healing. Pure, positive energy is channeled through the practitioner and transferred through the hands to the client.  That energy will flow to whatever area it is most needed and always for the highest good of the person receiving it.  I often liken it to the Biblical concept of the "laying on of hands".  But with Reiki, there are no required religious beliefs.  The energy is readily available to all who are willing to seek it.

What is Empyrean Reiki?

The term empyrean comes from the world of ancient Greece.  According to the Greeks, Empyrean was the highest level of the heavens.  It was a realm of purifying fire and the source of all light.  It was my desire to pull on the imagery of purity, fire, and light when creating my Reiki practice.

My particular style of Reiki reaches beyond the traditional Usui Reiki, branching off and combining with other healing systems.  Doing this allows me to not only aid clients and students with healing, but to also empower them to take control of their own well-being.  The end result is a deeply personal renewal of both body and spirit.


What services do you offer?

At this early stage of development, I am currently only available for distance healing. Reiki is not hindered or decreased by distance or time.  Powerful sessions can take place even when separated by hundreds of miles. Reiki can be sent forward in time to a date when you might need a little extra help -- like during a job interview or while in surgery.  If you'd like more information on distance healing, or if you're ready to schedule a session, please click here.

In the near future, I will be adding in-person sessions for those of you in the northwest Alabama area.  These sessions will be available in my home or at your location until the construction of the Empyrean Reiki "store" is complete.  Checking the site often, or signing up for the newsletter by clicking here are the easiest ways to keep up with future offerings.  You can also join me on the Empyrean Reiki Facebook page for updates.


Do you teach Reiki?

I do!  Beginning (hopefully) in April 2012, I will be offering Reiki classes for anyone in the area (or for those willing to travel).  I teach Reiki in four levels, as outlined by the International Center for Reiki Training.  Classes will be a group setting, however I am also available for one-on-one classes as requested.  To learn more about each class, click the links in the navigation bar.

If you have attended a Reiki class with another teacher, and have received the attunement, you may join the next level class provided you bring a copy of your previous certification.  If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me an email at laurie@empyreanreiki.com.
