ABOUT YOUR TEACHER:

Laura Joseph is an approved Jikiden Reiki® Shihan from the Jikiden Reiki® Kenkyukai in Kyoto, Japan and a Reiki Master Teacher in the Usui/Tibetan Tradition.

She has studied with leading reiki historian and expert, Frank Arjava Petter and Tadao Yamaguchi, current President of the Jikiden Reiki® Kenkyukai in Kyoto, Japan.

She is always seeking ways to learn and improve her practice by taking appropriate courses with organizations, conferences, and classes with experts in their respective fields.

She has been practicing spiritually based integrative holistic health enrichment including reiki since 2006 for animals and humans alike. Laura has over 15 cumulative years in the holistic and allopathic health fields.

Laura believes that animals, wild and domestic, know who to seek out for help when in need. Throughout Laura’s entire life, animals have sought her out and those in her family for help whether it was a seagull that was shot, a mother duck and ducklings searching for food, a pigeon who broke its wing, a dog who jumps into the car then delivers babies, or a stray cat who never leaves the front door. The stories are countless. Laura’s lifelong fondness for animals and her actions of what she has done, speaks for itself.

Laura also is passionate about finding solutions to the epidemic of abuse while providing healing to those inflicted including animals.

My Journey and Experiment Through Jikiden Reiki

I wanted to share my personal story, spiritual journey and experiment through Usui Reiki and Jikiden Reiki®. Most of my background in Reiki over the last 9 years has been primarily in the healthcare setting or at various spiritual locations. I have worked on pets, children, and adults. I have used Reiki for cancer, digestive disorders, anxiety, anger, kidney diseases, abuse related issues etc.

A Little About My Background:

As many of you may or may not know, I have worked a cumulative 15+ years in various aspects of healthcare from direct patient care to administration to teaching in a college setting.

Since 2006, I began including more holistic health and complimentary alternative medicine modalities or mind-body medicine therapies such as reiki.

The Journey To Self Healing:

As a domestic abuse survivor who has gone through the legal system as well as worked in the healthcare system, I realized something wasn’t working in my own healing. Instead, I felt there were band-aids applied and massive judgments and discrimination with the courts systems only made my healing less possible.

With what began a journey in self-healing from an abusive marriage, I dived into learning ways into healing trauma associated with abuse such as domestic abuse, child abuse, and sex abuse. I began learning the medical side such as treatments, medical statistics, the problems statically of the re-traumatization of family courts, meditation, nutrition, mind-body medicine therapies, importance of spirituality, reiki, yuen energetics, sound therapies, and more.

With self-healing and learning these alternative methods, I began to finally see improvement in self and others as time went on. I even discovered a personal statistic that no agency or organization has been able to provide me with medical documentation to back up my preliminary findings … A 100% link between breast cancer and abuse.

What I Do To Help Healing Survivors Of Abuse:

As more and more abuse survivors began seeking me out for help, the more and more I wanted to help them based on what I learned which started out with basic guided and mindfulness meditation in my office and at one of the local battered women’s shelters.

With each recorded success, I felt empowered to learn more both for self-healing and for healing for others.  I began studying and learning various alternative modalities like reiki over the years and worked directly with domestic abuse, child abuse, and sex abuse survivors.

Beginning 2011, I coached and used subtle healing and mindfulness based practices in the college setting as an adjunct instructor where students who were in an abusive situation sought my assistance. At the time the college was not equipped to assist in such matters so I became the go to person.

I also became a volunteer and board member for Massachusetts Survivors Outreach in hopes to bring to light the benefits of alternative therapies such as reiki in healing abuse.  My goal was to research and back up in the office the successes or findings I was experiencing clinically. Hence, finding a different way to break the cycle of violence through knowledge and healing.

The graphics on this page are just one campaign I was a part of called the “Did You Know Campaign” educating the general public about the issues surrounding abuse statistically as well as showing the benefits of alternative healing modalities such as reiki from a scientific standpoint.

I also recently spoke at the 2015 Celebration of Reiki Conference “Reiki Reaches Out” Panel on my experiences using reiki to heal traumas associated with abuse.

My Jikiden Training:

In May 2015, I had an amazing opportunity to continue my Reiki training by learning Jikiden Reiki® from Arjava Sensei who came to New England May 12th in Norwalk, CT.

Jikiden Reiki® is something I have been feeling deeply compelled to learn for a couple years now.  All Jikiden courses taught by Arjava Sensei are accredited by the Japanese Jikiden Reiki® Institute in Kyoto, Japan, and I will receive my certificate directly from Japan.

Jikiden  Reiki® is a simple form of energy healing from Japan known as “Shinshin Kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho” which translates as “Usui treatment for the improvement of body and mind.” Jikiden Reiki® is the original teaching of Reiki presented with credibility and clarity.

Jikiden is entirely free of Western influence. Its roots go back almost to the discovery of Reiki itself.  It differs from “Western” style Reiki in approach, attitude and ideas.  I will experience Reiki in its original beauty and simplicity.

This is a rare opportunity for me to study with someone so closely related to the culture and ideas that Reiki is steeped in and I am very excited about it especially on the ways it can assist in healing various traumas associated with abuse.

This training is just one more notch to help me on my path to help find long term healing solutions to abuse so a survivor no longer has to become a statistic.

As a result of  the recommendation of one of my students, I created a GoFundMe account to help make help make my dream a reality. I can not express the level of gratitude and appreciation I have for all those who contributed to the campaign as I am experiencing incredible healing like I have never experienced before.

AFTER JIKIDEN REIKI TRAINING AND THE EXPERIMENT:

Well after I left Connecticut after studying Shoden and Okuden  in May of 2015 with amazing teachers, with Arjava Sensei and Yohei Yamaguchi, from the Jikiden Reiki® Institute, Koyoto Japan,  I decided to try an experiment.

BEFORE CT:
Just prior to coming to Connecticut, I had taught a Reiki level 1 class using the materials provided by William Lee Rand.

While cleaning up and removing the blanket off of the exam table a corner had gotten caught and ricocheted back jamming my leg into the corner of the table causing a small hematoma.

AFTER CT:
One thing I noticed all week is that the bruise never healed and actually looked a little worse …. So after the last day of class, which happened to be exactly 8 days after the initial bruise with no change, I decided to try the experiment.

I figured what the heck, I’ll be sitting in a car for three and a half hours or more driving back. So I administered Jikiden Reiki® on my leg with my left hand while driving on half of the bruise.

THE RESULTS:
The side I did reiki on it cleared 80% by the time I arrived and unpacked the car (approx 5hrs) with clear finger print marks in it and completely in that side within 12hrs. Now, just to remind you, I have been a practicing reiki professional for over 9 years now. This result even completely dumbfounded me.

The side I did NOT do reiki is finally starting to heal after 2 weeks and finally cleared up at a month. I find it so incredible and love the healing power of reiki.

What amazed me was this was “just a bruise”. What could be the results when applied to cancer, infections, insomnia, anxiety, trauma, surgery, etc?

SINCE MY JIKIDEN REIKI® TRAINING:

I am amazed at how Spirit works every time and the Universal energies of healing. Just in the short time I have trained I have bared witness to other instances such as:

  1. A 6 mo post-op cancer patient going from non-healing and facing more invasive procedures to wound healing and reversal of original medical plans.
  2. severe chronic eczema with numerous doctors and unclear diagnosis for years with no relief to an 85% improvement for the first time in years just after one treatment.
  3. and finally here is what another reiki practitioner had to say after a Jikiden reiki treatment who had serious sleep issues, fibromyalgia, and other health complications “WOW, that was a powerful session of Jikiden Reiki with Laura Joseph yesterday! Slept like a baby last night for about 10 hrs. last night! Feel great today! Thank you, Laura (grin emoticon) xxx”

My goal will be to eventually provide clear evidential case studies of the value and benefits of Jikiden Reiki® with a qualified professional.

I can not wait to see what lies ahead.
