Reiki, Crystal Healing & Lisa

What is Reiki?

Reiki means universal life force energy.  Pronounced ray-key, it was discovered by Mikao Usui in 1922 and means "Universal life energy".  "Rei" means universal and "Ki" means Life Energy. It is the practice of transferring the healing life force energy that exists inside and all around us, through the practitioner to the recipient.  It is performed by a certified Reiki practitioner and is gentle and done while the recipient is fully clothed.


Reiki energy works with the human body's innate abilities to heal itself and restore balance.  Reiki is a natural and safe intervention that promotes healing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  It is recognized among health practitioners as a safe and effective complimentary therapy to all other forms of health care.  It enhances, but does not conflict with any medical procedure one may be undergoing and it has no negative side effects.

All life has energy circulating through it and surrounding it, when it dies, the life energy departs the body but is still around and can be felt by some of us.  If your life energy is low or restricted you will be more vulnerable to illness.  When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick and of course you feel much better, you see things more clearly and you can think better which means you can make better life decisions and therefore have a better life.  When a person receives a Reiki treatment, the "Rei" (spiritually conscious part of the energy) assesses where the person's energy is running low and possibly causing problems and then directs the healing energy.  Reiki will help to clear negative thoughts or feelings that can also end up causing us to become sick.  Reiki flows through these areas and charges them with positive energy which raises the vibratory level in and around the body and causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away.  It will also clear and heal the energy pathways to allow healty "Ki" to flow. 

A Reiki treatment can feel different for each person and in some cases can be life changing, especially if you are in a really low place in your life.  When a block is released, sometimes a person may feel a cold sensation. 

Some of the Reiki healing health benefits are:

  • Aids the body to release stress and tension
  • Accelerates the bodies self-healing abilities
  • Helps relieve pain
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Raises the vibrational frequency of the body
  • Supports the immune system
  • Reduces some of the side effects of drugs and helps the body to recover from drug therapy after surgery and chemotherapy
  • Aids better sleep
  • Restores balance and health to all levels of the human being - mind, body & soul!


Reiki can be learned by anyone, even a child.  In order for Reiki to properly flow through one person to another, an attunement is required.  Only a Reiki Master can give the attunements and are only given after a person has gone through classes and is properly trained and guided how to channel this special energy.  The attunements make adjustments in the student's chakras and energy pathways and more importantly in their deeper parts of consciousness to accommodate the ability to channel Reiki energy.  It then links the student to the Reiki source.  It is a powerful spiritual experience and the most important part of the Reiki class. 


Who is Lisa, The Crystal Girl?

Lisa is a Reiki Master, a Certified Crystal Healer and a Medium. Her earliest memories of seeing spirit objectively was when she was about 8 years old but was told by her mother that she actually started seeing and communicating with the other side as early as 3.  It wasn't too surprising to her mom because this did run in the family although it wasn't really talked about too much.

In her adult life, Lisa dealt with chronic pain for many years.  There were many diagnosis' and miss-diagnosis', medications and proceedures but....no relief.  She was told a cervical fusion was necessary and that would also relieve her pain.  Not only did it not relieve the pain, it left her paralyzed on her right side for 4 months and in excruciating pain.  Physical therapy, hard work and faith helped and she regained movement of her right arm however there is permanent nerve damage as a result of the surgery which meant medication for the rest of her life.  Right in the middle of it all, there was a death in the family.  Her sister, her best friend, had lost her only child.  Kyle was only 3 weeks from his 21st birthday and home from college for Christmas break.  On Christmas Eve he was involved in an auto accident that took his life and changed the lives the entire family. Now Lisa was physically and emotionally wiped out.

​Looking for something other than "meds", Lisa sought out on a quest to find some relief for her physical and emotional pain and that is when she discovered energy healing.  Although she communicated with the spirit world, she is a very skeptic person by nature so she didn't accept this all that quickly until she had a session of her own.  She went home and realized a few days later that she hadn't had to take as much medication as she normally would have.....hmmm....there might be something to this stuff after all, she thought.  But before she could accept that a simple energy healing session could really make a difference she went for other sessions, tried out other people and educated herself so much so that she ended up being a Reiki Master.  Then she bought a crystal....... a single crystal....

Like everything else, crystals have energy too.   Lisa, being a Certified Crystal Healer and has an understanding of the human electromagnetic field and of how crystals interact with it.  She is trained how to recognize and remedy energetic imbalances and/or blockages within this field using crystal energy.  All of Lisa's crystals are cleansed and activated with the infinite Love of Reiki for the highest good of all prior to using them on any client. 

Some of the benefits of Crystal healing are very similar to Reiki healing such as being deeply relaxing, rejuvenating and can assist in all areas of energetic imbalances that can end up manifesting themselves as physical ailments or emotional issues.  In addition, crystals will re-align the energetic frequencies, remove emotional & energetic blocks while allowing for soul learning, healing & spiritual growth.

Adding crystals to a Reiki or any other energy healing session takes it to a whole other level.  The vibrations of the crystals fuse together with the energy field of the client and actually changes the frequency.  Even without an actual energy healing session, you can benefit by simply marinating in the energy field of all the crystals by laying them all around the body.  Depending on your situation, crystals can really add a lot to your treatment. 

Now Lisa has thousands of crystals at any given time and it all started from that one little crystal!  She loves crystals, loves to teach about them, loves to use them in healing sessions and most of all she loves to hear others tell about how her crystals helped them in some way.

Although she is a teacher, she will always consider herself a student first as she loves to learn about crystals and energy healing.

Lisa does teach classes, she does private sessions and yes....she also sells a whole lot of crystals!

Lisa has an extraordinary gift, she has a calming effect on me and has helped me learn to focus on the positive.  Her insight is amazing! After completing a couple of sessions I brought my daughter to have a session, it was the best decision!  My daughter was going thru a difficult time and therapy was not helping.  Lisa helped her. It was amazing to see the changes that occurred with the help of Lisa's guidance.  Crystals and meditation and Lisa's technique helped her to be able to focus on the positive again.  One visit is all it takes to know that Reiki works and Lisa is the one to see! ~Tina, Riverside

I was really reluctant to try Reiki because I didn't know much about it but a friend recommended me to Lisa and said that she was extremely insightful and that I wouldn't be sorry.  As soon as I laid on the massage table in her home I instantly melted, I hadn't been able to relax in so long but there I was so relaxed like I could just fall asleep, it was amazing.  I didn't feel a whole lot during the actual session but the next day I was really thirsty, she did tell me that may happen with all the energy that was flowing through me.  During the session she brought up some issues that I was going through, it was weird because I didn't tell her or anyone about them ahead of time as they were kind of personal but she talked to me about them in a way that it wasn't invasive and she told me that my situation was going to get better within the next 3 weeks - it did.  I have gone back a few times for  refreshers and I use her techniques that she taught me all the time so I can keep positive and have a better life.  I'm really glad I found Reiki.  ~Leslie, Mission Viejo

Like Lisa, chronic pain was what originally brought me to Reiki.  I have gone to other people for Reiki treatments before and they went something like this...... I got on the table, laid down, closed my eyes for 20 minutes while someone put their hands on me and said nothing.  I felt nothing and I paid them.  My life didn't change in any way.  So, reluctantly I made an appointment with Lisa because a friend had a really great experience and said it was nothing like my other experience.   She was right. First of all, I could feel the good energy from Lisa as soon as I met her.  When I got on her table and she first touched her hands to my head I could actually "feel" something coming from her hands which she explained as "just loving energy", well it felt really good and I wanted more!  She kind of moved to different parts of my body like someone was telling her to go to those parts, it wasn't mechanical at all and when she would get to different areas she would ask me questions such as "When did you have surgery on this leg?" How did she know?  She was amazing.  She also used some crystals on me and told me that some were to unblock my lower 2 chakras which were causing pain in my lower back.  Did I tell you I had chronic pain?  I didn't tell her this prior to my visit.  After my first visit, my body did seem to go through some changes and I did have some relief in my pain.  I have been a loyal client ever since.  ~Laura, Chino Hills

I had my first crystal healing session done a couple of days ago and I feel amazing.  Before I saw Lisa I was feeling really yucky, kind of just out of it.  She called it "ungrounded" and I guess that is exactly how I was feeling.  She said that I had a couple of blocked chakras and my root chakra was closed up completely which is why I was feeling how I was.  I was also having some personal, emotional issues and I don't know how she did it but she actually told me what they were.  I couldn't believe it because I didn't say anything about it but she could see it in my energy.  After clearing away all the negative energy and opening up all of my chakras and getting them flowing again I felt like a completely different person.  It didn't feel like much during the session, I kind of felt a little tingling here and there but it was very subtle.  All I know is that I am so much more "grounded" and focused and no longer emotional.  I really do feel like a new woman.  Thank you Lisa, I will certainly be back for more!  Cynthia - Corona
