Five Reasons Why Sound Therapy Complements Reiki Therapy by Kriss Erickson   Shortly after I became aware of Reiki energy and attunements, I was introduced to the twenty-two frequencies of the Acutonics® tuning fork system. I immediately saw the benefit in sending both etheric, unheard frequencies of Reiki and the visceral frequencies of the tuning forks that are both felt and heard.   The Acutonics tuning fork system uses acupuncture points as pathways to send the balancing frequencies of the sun, moon, planets and asteroids to specific areas of the body. Reiki also sends universal energy frequencies, though these frequencies are felt through intuition ratherRead More →

Dissociative Identity Disorder and Loss of the Sense of Self by Kriss Erickson   Many people with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) have created such a complex inner world that the integrity of the self has been lost.

What Is Reiki? by Kriss Erickson   Reiki is a calming, balancing universal frequency that supports the recipient’s natural ability to heal himself. Mikao Usui, the Japanese founder of Reiki, dedicated his life to rediscovering what he called the “Secret of inviting happiness: The miraculous medicine of all diseases.”   Usui rediscovered an ancient, hands-on, energetic method of reminding his fellow human of their ability to heal themselves. He chose the word “Reiki” which means ‘spiritually guided life-force energy’ to describe what he felt.   Reiki is shared through three Reiki Pillars:   The first Pillar: before the session begins, the Reiki practitioner asks theRead More →
