Reikigong Students Comments

        (EC) Background – level 1 & 2 Healing Touch, yoga, Pranic Healing level I, Intuitive Mind I, II, III  - During - enjoyed meeting other students, blending our energies; Reiki I, II reinforced what I had, Reiki III was even more opening of the heart energy and a confirmation of my path. A VERY MOVING EXPERIENCE. Immediately After – Revitalized, muscle soreness from QiGong was significantly less; I felt Ihad accomplished another step in wholeness and empowerment.  Overall – I have continued to do the QiGong exercises at least every other day, building in repetition – I like the flow and vitality it allows. Recommend to Others?  YES! You were a wonderful instructor.  Thanks for all you do and share. [after III attunement, E cried and felt very humbled by the experience. She and her guide greeted each other and she saw the two hands positioned as flat and meeting]
        (KA) Background – LPN, Animal Communicator, some reflexology – learning Quantum Touch and Re-connective Energy techniques independent study.  During – Felt the opening of an artery in my chest, saw swirling colors, warmth, tingling in my legs; fingers jerked, energy surged through hip and leg. Immediately After  - Felt at peace, very little pain, energized. Overall – I learned SO much – had some affirmations on what I had been getting from spirit. Learning to trust myself more. Recommend to Others?  In a heartbeat!  It was one the most moving experiences of my life!  JoyRae, you are the most amazing, wonderful, loving & talented person I have ever had the priveledge of knowing. I am honored and humbled to know you!  [during III attunement – KA saw purple, felt anger releasing, pain fading ]
        (TC) – felt a lot of body movement, saw a huge cobra head in front of me, saw her chakras, saw her guide
        (LS) – Background – many years of reading and study; During – felt very relaxed, saw colors during healing, felt tired, or should I say – very, very relaxed; Immediately After – I feel good – lighter; Overall – I believe in the healing energies and will continue to practice and see what happens; Recommend to Others? – Yes
        (B_) – Saw colors and felt energy move, like it hadn’t in a long time, felt a tingle in my chakras – saw them bright and spinning; saw my “faceless”guide, with what seemed like long braided hair around “her” head like a halo. The colors changed and vibrated as I opened up. How exciting! A new shift.
        (MO) – Background – I have attended a few meditation classes with Reiki session and also a Reiki circle with somewhat experienced people; and I watched a couple of video tapes of Reiki as healing. During – There was nothing dramatic as some people describe, but I certainly felt my had very warm while I lay my hands on somebody or even on myself. Immediately After – I became more conscious of deep breathing. Overall – I also became more aware of overall healthy mind and life as a whole.  Recommend to Others?  - Yes [P.S. Thank you for a wonderful workshop. I am sorry that I could not respond right away because I went camping with my family for several days right after the workshop. It was a very good opportunity to try that QiGong session in the woods every morning. I also tried Reiki on my husband after playing golf and feeling achy all over.  I am interested in taking the 3rd level sometime, but at the moment, I think I need more time to practice. Thank you for considering of giving me a private session, though.  Please let me know when you have enough people for the same level after August.
        (KM) – Background - Reiki I, II, III, yoga, prana energy. During – lots of energy going during QiGong exercises and during the attunements and remote healing – energy flowing through the knees.  Immediately After – Tired and replenished with energy at the same time. Feels like the body has to get used to more energy created by QiGong exercises. Overall – Learned a lot about QiGong and how to interact it into reiki and energy healing practices. Recommend to Others?  Definitely!
        (LR) Background – I can think of two instances when my daughter had a head injury and her CT scan shows a severe concussion. I placed my hands on her and asked for healing energy. Within 6 hours, her CT scan was 100% clear. Also when my great aunt was close to death and said that I needed to come see her because she couldn’t hang on much longer. I went to see her, touched her and asked for healing energy for her. She immediately improved and was moved to a nursing home where she stayed for another 3 weeks before passing.
        (LL) – Background – have studied metaphysics and natural healing independently since age 15. Have studied yoga, tai chi, meditation, am in a medicine circle studying Native American healing techniques. During – during the activation, experienced a feeling of heat, and magnetic sensation at various points in my body, especially the heart chakra, a sense of blocked energy being shifted!  Immediately After – Completely physically drained. Also very emotional, cried a lot. Overall – Intend for using both as part of the massage practice that I intend on establishing in Ireland - the QiGong, in particular. I feel immediate benefits from just these past 2 days in that my breathing already feels deeper and my whole system has been oxygenated in a way which I’m sure ihas not for years. The Reiki I feel is something that I will need to practice more with before I can truly have the confidence to know it is working through me.
        (LG) This was an awesome experience. The release was a long time coming. I feel so privileged to learn from you. So glad you came into my life.
        (SA) This was great!  The QiGong is the tool I needed for my Reiki healings.
        (AG) So much love being given out – such a warm nurturing experience. Loved the hard work exercise of the QiGong combined with the Reiki. Felt the attunements really opened me up more that I’d been previously. Thank you!
        (NM) This was my 2nd time taking the class and it was very intense and I have shifted internally to a different space – the energy was incredible and JoyRae is an excellent teacher and role model for healing.
        (PH) Too much to write about here. But yes, it was very growing and opening and learning. And we did become a “class” with class!! Wonderful energy! Great Exchanges and good solid love vibrations. Well Done! Healing is happening and you’re helping it happen more and more, wider and wider around the world!
        (MM)  JoyRae – again I only move forward with good intent and love for all human beings here now and those past. Your class reminded me that I am loved. Love, M
        (DJ) Background – Kundalini,joga, acupressure  During – lightness, clarity, a full feeling; overall, positive experience. Immediately After – Grounded, energized, no worries  Overall – Help with health, energy level, effects of stress, balance energy, centered. Recommend to Others?  Yes

Immediately After – clear, grounded, aware, back into my consciousness.  Overall – I found and reconnected through other members of the class and Joy – the connection to the divine.  Recommend to Others?  Of course, how could I not!

        (KLM) Background – had received energy healing treatments frequently prior to class. Had experimented in giving short treatments to my practitioner. During – Integration of many levels of my being into a whole. Many new and expansive ideas and understandings became available to me through new and expansive people in attendance. Immediately After – That I am so glad I followed my heart down its path to its new place. Wouldn’t trade these new blessings for anything. Overall – Really enjoyed that the focus was on the experiential aspects of Reiki and QiGong. By making it part of my body first, I can now head into the intellectual aspects with my heart wide open. Recommend to Others? Absolutely
        (KS) Background – Extensive reading and involvement in workshops, groups, etc. of other modalities and teachers; & interests – especially metaphysical based. A lof of my mentorship has come from Doreen Virtue books, audio recordings. Awareness of healing energy when I paint or create art.  During – I experienced a lot of emotional clearing, de-toxing and blockage clearing; I felt an incremental and gradual rise of “old stuff” to be cleared.  Immediately After – I felt more quiet and a little relieved. I felt “safer”.  Overall – I feel as if everything I’ve done to this point has prepared me for a powerful clearing. I feel “cleaner” Recommend to Others?  YES !
        (AL) – Background – I have used colors to heal, but not consistently and not a lot of energy was behind it.  During – Felt like there was an unlimited and all knowing source behind and through me now. Immediately After – More relaxed, confident that I will get results through conducting healing spirit.  Overall – I feel like I can start a new chapter – to reinvent my physical existence based more on the truth rather than fears and illusion.  Recommend to Others?  Yes
