Welcome to Bella Mente

Hello and welcome to my page. I am so thankful that you are here! I am so excited to start this amazing journey of Reiki with you! I truly believe that Reiki is an amazing experience every soul should encounter.

I am here to help you find that ultimate relaxation and time for YOU!

Reiki is a gift and I have received a full atunement by a beautiful soul my Reiki Master.

I qualified as a healer, and I had such a burning desire to help people live a life of harmony and peace I have gone on to complete my Reiki Practitioner’s course. This has enabled me to help more people.

I know and understand that we live in such a fast-paced world and quite often forget about our own needs and wellbeing, never being able to switch off or relax, our minds go 100 miles an hour to ensure that all daily tasks are completed.

I am here to help you find that ultimate relaxation and time for YOU!

The people I have channelled Reiki too have experienced the following, a deep relaxation quite often falling asleep!

They have experienced a pulling sensation if they are suffering pain (it’s like the pain being pulled from them).

Some people have felt like they have been floating off the bed and in some cases their arms have raised of the bed.

I truly believe in the gift of Reiki and would love to be able to help you.

Reiki is the non-religious laying of hands and channelling of a non-physical energy through me to you.

Reiki can be channelled to human beings or any other living being such as pets and any other animal.

The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words. The Japanese/ English dictionary gives a literal meaning of Re as in ‘Ghost’ and Ki as ‘Vapour’

The spiritual meanings are:-

Rei – The first source that guides the creation and function of the Universe i.e., boundless, and Universal energy.

Ki -The unlimited non-physical energy that pervades the universe.

We receive Ki from the Universe, sunshine, air, food and when sleeping.

When the Ki is high, we feel strong and confident and when the Ki is low, we feel weak, vulnerable, and prone to sickness.

The life force of non-physical energy flows through all physical organs. When the Ki is low or the flow of Ki is adversely affected in some way, illness can be the result.  All negative and dis-harmonious thoughts and feelings will cause disruption in the flow of Ki.  In fact, some doctors are of the opinion that up to 98% of illness is caused primarily through the mental and emotional state of a person.

To enter the body, the life force energy has to have channels or doorways, these are provided by the Chakras which can receive the Ki and spread it throughout the physical body and the Aura (this is the subtle energy field around the body).

The channelling of Reiki helps to clear these channels and restore them back to normal.

Reiki when activated and applied for the purpose of healing, addresses body, mind and spirit.

Reiki can accelerate the body’s ability to heal physical ailments and opens the mind and spirt to the causes of disease and pain.

There are endless needs and uses for Reiki.

Reiki can heal large or small injuries, be a comfort in times of stress and emotional upset, headaches, menstrual cramps, chronic diseases.

Reiki helps to nurture high level well-being by working on body, mind, and spirit, through using Reiki we raise the vibratory level of our being resulting in ascension to a higher plane of life.

Following a session of Reiki you might experience a ‘Reiki Crisis’ following your treatment it can take up to three days for Reiki to move through each of the seven main Chakras, during this time people have reported strange dreams and altered sleep patterns.

It can sometime cause physical distress this can emerge as a headache, runny nose, cold or sickness, this is due to a toxin release and cleansing. It is advisable that you drink plenty of water after your treatment to help flush out any toxins.

The History of Reiki….

Reiki is older than any written account, but the modern story of Reiki begins in the mid 1800’s with Dr Mikao Usui, a Christian Minister in Kyoto Japan.

He was searching for the skill of healing. He could not find any answers where he was, so he decided to travel to the United States of America, where he studied Theology at the University of Chicago. During this time, he found no real answers to his questions, the bishops he approached stated that the religion heals the spirit not the body.

Eventually he returned to Japan to study Buddhism which had many references to healing and learned Chinese and Sanskrit to be able to understand the scriptures in their native languages. He settled in a Zen Buddhist Monastery in Kyoto and spent many years studying the Sutras. Eventually he found a formula for healing, but it was incomplete and so ancient it could not be fully interpreted.

Dr Mikao Usui decided to undergo three weeks of fasting and meditation on the nearby Holy site of Mount Kori-Yama to ask for guidance. He chose an area and laid out twenty-one stones to act as a calendar, throwing one away every morning. Early in the morning of the twenty first day, just before dawn, he saw a beam of light which moved towards him and appeared to be growing larger. His instinct was to get up and run but he decided to face this light and was stuck by the light in his ‘third eye’ and was knocked unconscious. In this altered state he saw millions and millions of bubbles in all colours of the rainbow. Finally came the Reiki symbols in white and gold. As each symbol appeared, he was given instructions on how to use it. When he opened his eyes, it was broad daylight in the middle of the morning.

Walking down the mountain, he experienced what he called, his four miracles. He stubbed his toe and instinctively put his hands around it. He felt heat through his palms and the toe healed. Secondly when he reached the base, he was able to eat a full breakfast at a serving house (not a good idea after twenty-one days of fasting). Thirdly, the young girl serving him had chronic toothache. He placed his hands on her face and the pain was relieved. Finally, upon returning to the monastery, a leading monk was in bed with severe arthritis. He sat on the bed with his hands on him, whilst relating his experience, and the arthritic pain was relieved.

Dr Usui decided to go and heal the beggars of Kyoto; he did so and lived in the beggars’ quarters for years. After a while he saw the same faces, he had healed returning angry that they would have to work instead of begging for a living. Dr Usui was very disheartened by this and left the beggars’ quarters. This resulted in him developing the five principles of Reiki and the belief that Reiki should not be given freely but should be paid for or exchanged in order to appreciate and respect its value and power.

Dr Mikao Usui then became a pilgrim, spreading the word of Reiki throughout Japan. By the time of his death in 1930 he had initiated 18 Reiki Masters, one of them being Chujiro Hayashi who he had named as his successor. Mr Hayashi opened the first clinic in Tokyo where a very sick lady came for treatment. Her name was Hawayo Takata. After a series of sessions, she was healed of her various ailments. She desperately wanted to be attuned to Reiki and eventually Chujiro Hayashi did so in the spring of 1936. By the winter of 1938 she was initiated as a Reiki Master and was the thirteenth and last Master initiated by Dr Hayashi before his death in 1941.

Mrs Takata first brought Reiki to her homeland of Hawaii and then on to the United States, where she found it difficult to instil the Japanese concept of respect and decided to charge a sum of money for Reiki Mastership- $10,000 in order that it should be valued in the West. Whilst one can understand this reasoning, many have felt that this sort of financial undertaking makes Reiki too exclusive and out of reach for most people. Many Reiki Practitioners also feel it cannot be right to charge large sums of money for healing in a world which so desperately needs it.

Upon her death in 1980 Mrs Takata had attuned 22 Reiki Masters, her successor and current Grand Master being her Grand-daughter, Phyllis Furumoto
