The Power of Sacred Geometry

4th in a series on the Akashic Records

I’ll wrap up these blogs on the Akashic Records with the interesting insights I received about sacred geometry. Eight years ago I received my first Reiki attunement and later, received levels II & III. Each attunement represents absorbing a healing frequency, accompanied by a sacred symbol, passed on by Reiki Masters. Beyond those standard attunements, I’ve received countless spontaneous attunements during prayer circles with my Supernal Friends. One of the friends asks permission to impart the latest attunement and it always involves certain symbols being traced on our palms and sometimes foreheads.

So, what’s the deal with the symbols? Because my experience has been overwhelmingly positive in healing energy, I’ve adopted an in-for-penny-in-for-a-pound attitude. I always accept the attunement, but I haven’t truly grasped the significance of the symbols. Lately, in meditation time, I’ve seen three-dimension symbols, often glowing colored lights. As Alice in Wonderland would say, “Curiouser and curiouser.”

Last week as I was practicing my new discipline of connecting with the guardians of the Akashic Records, I wondered about these mysterious symbols. Here are the thoughts I wrote down:

We will teach you about sacred geometry. The symbols act as connections between one dimension and the next. They each have a unique frequency that is absorbed by the person who receives them through the attunement process. The symbols can also be embedded in books, music, plants, and objects. The ancient people knew this and carved them in stone to raise the vibrations of their communities. We will give you sacred geometry as you work as a therapist to bring clarity and raise the frequency of your clients. That is all.

Interesting, isn’t it? There is so much to learn.

Christianity and Reiki

There are the sayings, “like attracts like” and “birds of a feather flock together.” I’ve found in my Reiki practice and the responses to Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation and Me that I am attracting people grounded in a Christian tradition, but willing to think outside the box. Much of Ever-Flowing Streams chronicles my pursuit of knowledge about energy healing within the Christian culture. Can a Christian comfortably visit or become a Reiki therapist? Let’s get some perspective on the issue.


  • Reiki is not a religion. People of many religious affiliations or no religious affiliations are participating in the energy healing movement. Its roots come from Japan and an Eastern world view, but it is utilizing universal energies—like electricity.
  • Are there “magic” symbols? The symbols in Reiki have specific meanings and many are Japanese words or phrases. They are used as meditation focus points to enable the practitioner to concentrate a healing intention, such as sending distance healing. The idea of “magic” is primarily a Western concept that arises from Occult activity. Reiki symbols are more akin to mediating and quieting the mind toward a certain goal. Reiki symbols are part of Sacred Geometry, carrying healing energetic frequencies.
  • Where does the healing power come from? The same question was asked of Jesus Christ when he walked the earth and healed the multitudes. Some accused him of being in league with the Devil. He knew how to use the universal healing energies in a very efficient manner. I began studying energy healing within the church and simply kept learning. The Reiki energies come from another dimension, unseen to the human eye, but quite real. As humans evolve and become multi-sensory, access to these energies and the intelligence behind them will become more common.

Personally, I consider myself a follower of Christ and the expansion into energy work is a further manifestation of living out my spiritual path. However, I don’t press my religious beliefs on clients.  Energy work encompasses transmitting healing vibrations into the subtle (energetic ) body of the client. The practitioner may also pick up information, such as sensing that an organ is stressed, like a low thyroid. The energies emitted are utilized by the client to the best of their ability to assimilate it. None of this activity is tied to a religion.

What is Reiki?

Tapping400 A new year brings new directions. For myself, the expansion of my Reiki Practice is evolving. Reiki and similiar energy healing modalities are coming more into the mainstream. Below is some basic introductory information.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing modality that originated in Japan about a hundred years ago by Dr. Mikao Usui or Usui Sensei, as he was known by his students. During a dark-moment-of-the-soul period in his life, Usui Sensei made a pilgrimage to the holy mountain Mt. Kurama for guidance and renewal.

During a twenty-one day spiritual retreat, he encountered the Reiki (meaning “God’s Light”) energy, which entered his head, and provided an unending stream of healing power.

Not only could Usui Sensei channel this power personally, he could pass the power onto students via “attunements.” 

Over the decades, Reiki centers opened in Japan. After World War II, the West learned about Reiki via an American of Japanese heritage named Mrs. Hawayo Takata. Today there are thousands of Reiki practitioners worldwide.

Reiki Energy Treatments

 Reiki and other forms of complementary therapies are being increasingly employed in the health care industry. Energy therapists serve as healing facilitators transferring energy frequencies, much as a light bulb transmits electricity.

Benefits from treatments include:

  • Accelerated healing ability
  • Relaxation Response
  • Sleep Improvement
  • Reduction in pain, anxiety, nausea, muscle tension
  • Post-op healing
  • End of life transition
  • Over-all sense of well-being

What to Expect

A client sits or lies down, fully-clothed. The therapist generally works a few inches away from the body. People emit energy patterns around their bodies, sometimes called the auric field. The therapist works with various energy frequencies to adjust the client’s auric field toward wellness. The energy may feel warm, cool, or create a slight buzzing sensation. The client absorbs healing energy and utilizes it to the best of their ability. Sessions can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.

Reluctantly Reiki

It’s that time of year again–Andy Williams singing, strange blow-up Santa’s on people’s lawns and I’m selling “Shiny Green Shoes” in the Christmas story anthology, HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

shoes300The story centers on a black child of the Depression and her unlikely friendship with an aging white actress. Where did the story come from? I’ve rarely told the origin of the idea because people might think I am a little crazy (like that’s something new.) I’ve used the audio version as Christmas card in the past. A friend’s husband (fine Christian fellow) once asked me where the story came from and I told him the truth. I never got invited to their home again.

But, maybe times are changing. I recently received my Reiki Master Certificate from the local community college. Hospitals are offering Reiki treatments. People are now calling me for Reiki treatments. When Bette Lee Crosby invited me to guest blog at her site today and talk about HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS, I decided to reveal the Reiki connection to the story’s inspiration.

Hop over to Bette’s site and read “the rest of the story”– HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS at Words, Wit and Wisdom.

Explaining Healing Energy

Last week my client, Joan, ask me, “How do I explain what you do? It looks like all you do is stand there and wave your hands over me.” She’s been trying to tell her friends about her healing energy experience, but it’s a challenge to describe.

Consider electricity. We were all taught that Benjamin Franklin “discovered” electricity by flying a kite in a lightning storm. (Kite, rain, wind, a metal key.)  It took another hundred years for electricity to be harnessed for light bulbs, street cars, and cattle prods. Yet, the power was always there, untapped.

Take cell phones signals. Billions of frequencies are zooming through the atmosphere. All you need is a little hand-held device to pick up a unique signal. The amount of information that can be downloaded instantaneously is mind-boggling.

Healing energy is very similar. There are frequencies all around us—you just need to know how to receive them and utilize them. Humans are the receivers, instead of little hand-held devices. The healing facilitator becomes the conductor.

The one thing that has to be added into understanding healing energy beyond raw electricity and cell phone transmission is Intelligence. The healing energies carry information and appear to be connected to an Intelligence Source. That’s where the mystery begins and sometimes people get “freaked out.”

Dr. Eric Pearl, author of The Reconnection, admits that working with healing energy ultimately requires the response, “I don’t know how it works.” Yet, experience is proving time and again that healing energy does work.

For myself, it’s taken about thirty years of practice. Like playing the piano, you go from chopsticks to concertos if you practice. I believe we’re seeing more people being born with  evolved brains that can tap into these frequencies. Adam MacLeod, known as the DreamHealer was a healing child prodigy. Now he’s a modern scientist changing the healing landscape.

The books of Gregg Braden, (The Divine Matrix), tackle some of these questions and offer a whole new way to look at life on Planet Earth.

Healing energy? It’s everywhere—like intelligent electricity waiting to be turned on.

From the Reiki Room

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new blog. My day-to-day life has gotten so interesting, I haven’t had time to write about it. The first major change is being suddenly cast in the role of President of the La Mirada Symphony Association. That’s a whole new learning curve, but is a good fit for someone who appreciates the fine arts and is a natural schmoozer such as myself.

Secondly,  turning my spare bedroom into a Reiki Room became my personal Field of Dreams — “build it and they will come.” Word-of-mouth has brought new people into my life and onto my Reiki table.

Take Joan, for instance.

SESSION ONE: She called me saying she’d heard I was an “awesome healer,” which made me uncomfortable. Jesus was an “awesome healer,” I’m just a healing facilitator, allowing myself to be a conduit for the cosmic energies. At any rate, Joan came over and we hit it off immediately. She is a bright lawyer, trained with an analytical mind and gifted with intellectual curiosity.

I told her not to tell me why she was coming for a treatment. It’s easier to get into the healing mode without my mind having preconceived ideas of what to expect. In that first session, her neck and shoulder area buzzed the strongest under my hands. I felt led to apply the area with the Young Living Essential Oil blend, Valor (sometimes called a chiropractor in a bottle).

As I worked that area, Joan said, “Okay, I’m a believer.”

It turned out she was there primarily for the pain from a car accident that has returned. She was able to swivel her neck better after the treatment. Her neck seemed out of alignment and she followed up with a chiropractic treatment.

SESSION TWO: Her neck seemed much better. I moved around her body and suddenly felt intense cramping in my digestive tract. Joan had mentioned that for the past fifteen years she has suffered from extreme food reactions. She has become a vegan, eating mainly rice and vegetables, out of necessity, not because she’s a health-nut.

The session took on a life of its own as I worked and pulled on the energy patterns over her pelvic region. “Ow,” I said. “This hurts. Is this the way you live all the time?”

“I’m sorry,” she said, laughing a little. “I ate a piece of bread.”

“Bread makes you feel like this?” I knew my pains were just ghostly reflections of what she must experience. After fifteen years, it had become her “normal.” I worked the area a few more minutes and then sent her on her way thinking, “Well, that was interesting!”

The next day Joan sent me an email:

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was going to call you, but I thought I wouldn’t be a “crazy patient”.  That digestion thing that you fixed…I’ve been living with that for over 15 years.  I am in shock because I went and ate sushi TWICE and nothing happened!  I ate salmon which usually sets me off. You have no idea how strange that is to me right now to feel fine.  My skin has cleared up considerably too, just in the past few days.  Normally if I had sushi, I would not feel good and I would get some really bad cystic acne that hurts for a week and then takes another couple of months to heal. I told some people at work who know of my issues and told them how I got healed.
Joan has been indulging in the joys of junk food for two weeks now.
I wonder what will happen next in the Reiki Room? I’ll keep you posted!
