“What the certificate says: Shilah Sarkissian has attained the status of Reiki Master. What my heart says is: thank you to a wonderful teacher, mentor and friend for such beautiful insights. For challenging me and teaching me to go beyond what I thought was possible as a healer, for myself and for others. For recognizing in me a talent that I didn’t even see I myself at the time and for nurturing, guiding and growing that talent with love, light and wisdom. What a ride it’s been, as I embark on this next chapter of professional natural healing for my community, I feel guided and purpose driven like never before. Sisterhood, community and support are such beautiful things. May they be present in your life now and always. Thank you Dina”
Reiki is an energy and a technique to bring about changes in our energetic, mental, emotional and physical bodies. These changes create a direct impact on all aspects of our life, our health, finances, self-esteem, stress levels, relationships and so on.
Reiki assists us in reconnecting with our inner wisdom and the innate intelligence of the healer within; it helps to restore energetic balance and repair blockages and tears in the energy field.
“Thanks for the reiki class. I feel like I’ve opened new level of confidence in who I am and what I am here for. I had very active dreams that covered all sorts of things. Almost like a cleaning house and letting go. At one point I saw a woman who was representing a teacher or guide who told me that right now I can create whatever I want. I only need to ask for it or set my intention and it will be mine. As I thought about what I wanted, which is to inspire others and help them awaken and heal, I realized that that has already happened for me. It was all very interesting. I also, realized that I didn’t really care about anything more material. It felt good to see. “Andy, Mission Viejo, CA
Reiki is used in hospitals and clinics around the world. It helps regain balance, reduce stress, and ease mental, emotional and physical pain. It is especially useful for those in the medical, psychological or any people-oriented profession. Reiki is great tool for Yoga Teachers!
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to experience Reiki healing. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether or not you believe in it.
There are two ways to experience the Reiki healing energy: Become a Certified Reiki Healer (see below) or Receive a Healing.
If you want to become a Reiki Healer you must take classes, receive attunements and demonstrate your thorough understanding of this technique and its uses.
Reiki Certification workshops are 7 hours each and teach students how to use Reiki on themselves and others. Each workshop includes a special attunement that allows the student to permanently connect to the high-frequency Reiki energy.
I teach Reiki differently from most teachers. While Reiki is generally taught as a way to heal another person, I teach is as a tool to heal yourself. Once we heal ourselves, healing another person becomes a breeze. I also spend quite a bit of time to discussing the ethics of Reiki. I believe that it is important for us to practice energy healing with as much integrity as we can.
There are four levels of Reiki Attunements available through training and practice. The final training includes instruction on how to open this doorway and attune others to this incredible healing technique.
First Degree workshop and attunement focus on opening the physical body so that it can accept and channel life force energy. An attunement of First Degree Reiki raises the vibratory rate of the four energy centers in the upper part of the body and in the hands. The channel is then sealed open so that you can maintain the ability to access the Reiki energy for the rest of your life. Once you are attuned to the Reiki energy, you can never lose it.
Second Degree workshop and attunement provide a quantum leap in the ability to access the Reiki energies. A technique for sending healing to others at a distance is taught at this level. Second Degree Reiki emphasis is on adjusting the emotional energy body, rather than the physical body, which is the primary focus of First Degree Reiki.
Third Degree (Master) workshop and attunement initiate the participant to the Reiki Master Practitioner level and are designed for those who wish to practice Reiki at the highest level. The Reiki Master attunement amplifies the ability to access and channel the Reiki energy to the fullest and offers techniques for offering planetary healing.
Fourth Degree (Teacher): Those interested in both practicing and teaching Reiki to others should take Reiki Master Teacher Training.

“After Reiki 1, my personal relationships began to sort themselves out and honestly, I only marveled at the speed and initially did assign it to just good fortune. However, when I have undergone Reiki 2 training and attunement, besides the actual powerful physical reaction that I got in the process, where I felt, literally felt energy rising and vibrating in my body, I also could not believe how quickly I started receiving things I asked for. Job, resolutions in personal life, calm, remote healing results the next day! It is unbelieveable honestly. My mom has been ill for some time and she was going through depression when I implemented Reiki 2 technique on her. The NEXT DAY when I Skyped her, she reported feeling rather well and hopeful, there was a smile on her face that I have not seen for 6 month. This is just ONE example, powerful one of what is continuing to happen every day. I would recommend the courses without hesitation. I am grateful to Dina for her knowledge, guidance and ability to transmit the knowledge in such a powerful way Namaste.” Nellia, San Diego
“I found that this experience with Reiki was different from what I expected. I expected to use it to heal others. Instead, I seem to be healing myself. Right after the class I found that I had so much anger and I hate to feel angry! I would rather pretend that everything is fine and I’ve been that way for many years. (I’m 62 years old.) I was upset that I felt so mad but it gradually subsided. Now I feel that I don’t want to be with people that I don’t like and I won’t do things that I don’t feel are in my best interest. Before Reiki, I was a pushover. I couldn’t say no to anyone.
Now, I feel that I know what’s best for me and I’m less afraid to go for it. Weird. This is not what I expected at all. I guess I am the one who needed the healing most of all.
I now feel more confident in my decisions. I had a volunteer job and felt unappreciated, so I quit. I am letting people fall out of my life who frustrate me and take my joy. Lastly, I have a job interview today and am going to dress up and know that I would be the best person for this job whether I am hired or not!
I am definitely taking Reiki III and am grateful that I’ve had this awesome experience!” Susie, Laguna Niguel
