I've had the great honor of passing my Reiki healing on to a few in our community. I've been asked to teach again but this time I feel a need to vie from the traditional Reiki origin story and add elements of my own. Can I still call it Reiki? We will start there and attune to that higher power. After all, that source is seen differently by so many who practice the healing arts. There is no right or wrong way to tap into that power. It has to feel right to you.
I will give credit where credit is due and acknowledge Mikao Gyoho's enlightenment. Then, being a fiber magickian, I have a need to enhance it with colors, scents, and textures.
The chakras lend themselves well to these additions.
Color healing is an accepted practice for many seekers and healers. Aromatherapy is quite popular and mainstream because it is so powerful. Texture may not be as common but you have to admit the feel of a cashmere sweater or plush teddy bear can change your mood and lift your spirits.
