Reiki and Shamanism Explained with guest Robin Smith
As described in Jillian’s book, Beyond the Pews: Breaking with Tradition and Letting Go of Religious Lockdown, there is a movement towards combining the spiritual aspects of east and west, ancient and new, and the pursuit of inner wellness. Readers of the book, which is not necessarily a how to or self-help book, are given specific lessons on how to best use their personal intuitive messages to discover the intentions of the soul, while respecting and connecting with their traditional religious teachings.
Be sure to listen the entire “Spiritual Trends” Series. Each week Jillian will present information from those considered experts in their field to give listeners a better understanding about topics that are at times mystical, non secular, yet perhaps divine. For those in a spiritual quest, this series promises to be an enlightening journey.
Robin Smith, Reiki and Shamanism Explained
Jillian’s guest, Robin Smith, states that she has always been sensitive to “energy,” but wasn’t effectively working with it until the ’90’s when she completed Reiki attunement training. She has since been licensed to practice Acupuncture which she offers at The Day Spa in the Green Bay area of Wisconsin.
Common knowledge of traditional religion’s “laying on of hands,” which evokes the holy spirit of healing for the afflicted, is accepted practice in a multitude of mainstream churches and religious teachings. Although spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion and is available to everyone, passed on through an “attunement” from a Reiki Master.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.(read complete description)
Robin Smith has learned about Peruvian Shamanism through Carla Fox, who describes a shaman in detail on her site:
What exactly is a shaman? Most people are familiar with the term shaman, or medicine person in relation to the North American Indian tribes. Shamans are actually found all over the world, serving in the many tribal cultures that still exist, and the name itself comes from the Tungus people of Siberia. This is the person who traditionally is the healer, seer and visionary for the group, the one who can walk between the worlds of spirit and matter on behalf of anyone seeking guidance and healing.(read complete description)
Reiki and Shamanism may seem mystical, magical, or absurd to those who do not have an understanding of the practices and the spiritual, physical, and emotional benefits that multitudes have experienced.
Ancient wisdoms combined with modern knowledge? Or a “spiritual trend?” Listen to the show and YOU decide!
