Julien – 12 years old
Julien’s father had come to my practice a few weeks earlier because he felt very stressed by his job. He had noticed the benefits Reiki had brought to his cousin after her burn-out. After 5 sessions, she had found back her joy of living. Julien’s father had immediately felt calmed after his first session. He thus suggested Julien trying the Reiki experience.
During our talk, Julien tells me his aggressiveness comes eventually from situations lived at school. His father is just a scapegoat… I teach him the ” technique of the tiger ” to help him channeling his anger, express it, without being submerged by its energy. Then, I give Julien one Reiki care hour. Julien is relieved, he is quiet and smiling.
Later on, Julien’s mother will tell me that harmony is back within the family.
This is the end of «My Reiki experience with children” article. I have received other children on Reiki sessions, with similar circumstances or disorder.
I am full of gratitude for the Reiki and its ability to transform one’s life.
I am full of gratitude for the trust these parents and children grant me.
I am full of gratitude to be fortunate enough to support these children towards the liberation of their tensions. Children are the ones who build the future of our world.
If you have seen some aspects of your life improving after one or more Reiki sessions I have given you, you can testify on this site. Your testimonials will undoubtly help hesitating people to take the path of a greater well-being… Thank you.
Paul – 14 years old
This is the year of the fifth grade exam for Paul. Paul has difficulties feeling confident: he suffers from dyslexic disorders. Although the school board grants him a longer time during the examination, the young man remains very worried, particularly regarding the French written session.
And for a good reason! Reading a one-page text means real difficulties for Paul as letters get blurry. He cannot understand neither the words, neither the meaning of the sentences he sees. He needs a lot of time and method to read the questions and fails understanding the instructions: thus his answers are often irrelevant, not due to the lack of concentration but due to the lack of time.
Reading is suffering. It is a really difficult and disheartening exercise. Furthermore, he has to face other people’s opinion and judgments. Nevertheless, at the oral, Paul does not face these difficulties and he rather is alert.
Paul came to two Reiki sessions. During our second appointment, I also guided him to visualize the success of his oral presenting his company internship report… These two sessions were beneficial for Paul: they calmed him and restored his self-confidence.
Paul passed successfully both the written and oral French tests. His head teacher was rather surprised Paul got his diploma.
Paul was very proud he had been able to prove that he was capable of succeeding in spite of unfavorable forecasts. He could gladly take the path that suited in his aspiration!

Jeanne – 10 years old
Jeanne’s parents live apart. Jeanne lives with her mother and younger brother. This one loves to be the center of attention. Jeanne is really angry with this invading little brother: he breaks her toys, he always wants her to play with him and foremost he does not respect her need for loneliness…
After this first session of Reiki, Jeanne feels totally relaxed, cheerful and joyful again, like a child.
I see Jeanne again 6 weeks later for a second session. I ask her: “Is it your mom who suggested you come to see me again or did you ask her? His answer was unequivocal: “Oh, it’s me! It has made me so well last time, I was zen! … “

Leo – 9 years old
Leo is quite a shy boy who expresses himself through the music: he plays the violin ans studies music at the Conservatoire. As last year, Leo is about to take the competitive examination. Unlike the previous two years, Leo is feeling overwhelmed with bad stress. He lost his confidence in his abilities as well as his sleep.
His father, who noticed certain benefits from a Reiki session, suggests him trying Reiki to calm his fears. We book an appointment for the day just before the event.
During our exchange, I encourage Leo to tell me in detail about his musical practice, the audition and his apprehensions. I invite him then to visualize the success of his competition, to feel the thrills and the pleasure that he perceives when he plays the violin for himself or his loved ones.
Lying on the table, he lets himself go in the heat of my hands while continuing the visualization exercise. After the Reiki session, Leo is smiling; he feels light, relaxed and confident.
One week later, his father tells to me that Leo passed successfully his audition with a very good grade and the jury’s congratulations. His music professor was positively amazed at such a result because the composition Leo had chosen was particularly difficult to execute.

Chloe, 11 years old – Chloe is the first child to whom I gave Reiki healing.
Since her youngest age, Chloe could not fall asleep without her room’s light on besides the night light. For some time, she refused to go to bed before her mom. Desk clerk in a hotel, she did not return home before 1 am or 2 am. In college, she had relational difficulties with her schoolmates and had fallen out with her best friend. She had complexes by her physical appearance and asked systematically for exemptions for sport classes. Chloe was sad and had lost all her love of life.
I explained to Chloe that she might fall asleep during the session. She answered it would amaze her a lot, as she had difficulty falling asleep. Ten minutes later, Chloe was sleeping. Her mom told me after the session that she had seen her daughter as her sleeping baby: her hands had been grinding on an imaginary blanky!
After our first appointment, that very evening, I received a SMS from the mother saying that just after the session Chloe went hopping to the car while humming. Her mother had the feeling she had “regain” her daughter … She sent back a new message one week later to confirm that this state was going on, to everyone’s delight.
After the 3rd session, Chloe accepted to go to bed at the reasonable time for a schoolgirl and asked her mother to switch off her room’s light. She had lost any aggressiveness towards her schoolmates, particularly towards her friend… and she had asked her mother to buy her a pair of sneakers to run the school’s cross! Chloe did not need seeing me again.
Today, Chloe is a young girl full of enjoyment and at ease with herself!
Next: Leo – 9 years old
I have always felt close to children. From their youngest age, they themselves are: real, without any filter, without any judgment… and especially full of love!
During a Reiki session with a minor, the presence of a parent is asked. When fixing the appointment, the latter often gives me the motives for this approach . From the initial stage of the session, I am talking exclusively with the child. During our exchange, he* gives me his point of view onto the situation that he’s experiencing. He describes his feelings, his fears, his stress, his obstacles or his pain. He expresses as well his hopes and his request towards a greater well-being… It is often a very revealing moment for the adult who is not always conscious of the world in which his child is living. After I have explained to the child the modalities of a Reiki session, I ask him for his agreement before processing. With no agreement, no Reiki.
Reiki helps children to find peace and serenity, as well as joy and vitality. A lot of them tell me they feel completely relaxed by the end of the session and they enjoyed this moment.

*To be concise, “he” is employed but means he or she, with no discrimination!
Last September, I have been attuned as a Karuna ® Reiki I & II practitioner.
Karuna ® Reiki was developped by William L. Rand, Usui Reiki Master. It is called as well “Reiki of Compassion”.
The meaning of Karuna donnée par W. L. Rand sur le site “The International Center for Reiki Training” is the following:
Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translanted to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action.” When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.
Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing is quickened as well.
Karuna Reiki® opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.
Karuna® Reiki is totally additional to Usui Reiki.
A big thank you to CB, NS and SR for their confidence ; they are the first people who received healing during the 3 first opening days.
End of April, for my birthday, I was attuned on the 3rd level and became an Usui Reiki Master.
Beginning of May, I went to Egypt with Oasis Voyage, along with an international group, for the Wezak celebration in Cairo with Don Ernesto Ortiz. Every visited site corresponded to a specific alignment on chakras, with very strong moments in energy:
- in the Red Pyramid of Snefrou, on the funeral site of Dahchour in the South of Saqqarah,
- in Zeitoun Saint-Mark’s Church where the Virgin Mary appeared repeatedly between 1968 and 1970 to thousands of people (up to 250 000 people at the same time), of diverse confessions: Muslims, Christians, Jews, unbeliever,
- in the Saint-Mary Coptic church, called « suspended » (Al-Kanîsah al-Mu’allaqah or El Moallaqa),
- in the Cairo National Museum, in particular, as for me, in the Akhenaten room,
- and especially in the Great Pyramid of Giza, our trip culmination, on the Wezak day.
At the end of May, I attended the 12th French Congress of Usui Reiki that gathered in Evian 450 Reiki users (professionals or not); it allowed me to participate in numerous activities, to work on therapeutic sounds, to discover future scientific communications about Reiki, to exchange with peers and to go back home with new tools as the biomusic that accompanies from now on my care.
Today, I continue to discover the unlimited world of energy and to train to move forward on my personal and spiritual fulfillment path and to offer quality care to the people in demand.
By the end of September, my initiation into the levels 1 and 2 of Karuna ® Reiki is planned .
My most sincere thanks to the numerous people who trusted me and came to receive care.
And welcome to all those who wish to discover a Reiki session and its beneficial effects…
One of the pots had a crack in it. While the other pot was perfect, and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the mistress’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to her master’s house.
The perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.
After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream: “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you.”
Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?”
“I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your mistress’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.
The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in her compassion she said, “As we return to the mistress’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.”
But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again it apologized to the bearer for its failure.
The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side?
“That’s because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my mistress’s table. Without you being just the way you are, she would not have this beauty to grace her house.”
Each of us has our own unique flaws. We’re all cracked pots.
But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. We’ve just got to take each person for what they are, and look for the good in them.
Remember taking enough time smelling the flowers that grow on our side of our path!
Let’s live, give, love et be grateful!
