Treatments with Frans Stiene

I have had distance Reiki from Frans in the past and that was fantastic. I recently had my first live full Reiki session with Frans and let me tell you…it’s better than Raspberry chocolate chip ice cream with hot fudge sauce and slivered almonds on top!!

The Touch of Love

As I am sure you are aware, there are so many, many books written about the power of kaji, and of course the ones on mikkyo mention the very elaborate and lengthy rituals. On the other hand, there are a few theses written on the matter of healing that write about the priest using their rosary to touch parts of the body to effect some kind of response from the person receiving the kaji.

The Deeper Layers of “Distance” Healing

Within the system of Reiki there is a practice which is commonly called “distance” healing. Many modern Reiki schools teach that you do this by “sending” something to someone - by using a pillow or stuffed animal, by placing your hand on your leg, by making a bridge, etc…
