Reiki & Energy Balancing Session
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
There are many variations of Reiki, but in essence Reiki treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system.
Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
The practice is taught by Reiki masters / teachers who have trained in the tradition passed on in person from master to student.
The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions can take 45 minutes to an hour-and-a-half, depending on the client’s needs.
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.
What do Reiki treatments feel like?
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time.
Clients may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki treatment. Benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.
What do Reiki treatments do?
Reiki is a safe and soothing treatment that can be:
~ Comforting when life is tough
The relaxing nature of Reiki can be very helpful to people especially at difficult times in our lives. We can all feel overwhelmed or disconnected, sometimes there is a real sense of isolation, both emotionally and spiritually. Reiki treatments can bring feelings of peace, centeredness and an ability to cope better with the challenges of life.
Reiki can be beneficial in circumstances that are short term, but can also support people dealing with long-standing conditions, helping to bring comfort, acceptance and a more positive outlook.
~ Supportive during pregnancy
Reiki can be wonderful for pregnant women. Treatments can be very relaxing and enjoyable for the mother.
~ Calming for children
Children usually love Reiki. The length of a session is often shorter than it would be for an adult.
~ Reassuring for animals
Animals also respond well to Reiki, they too seem to find it relaxing and soothing
~ Helpful at the end of life
In such cases Reiki can be a great comfort, helping to promote a sense of peace and acceptance for the dying and their families.
How much Reiki would I need?
A single session may be sufficient, but it is best to discuss this with your practitioner. For instance, if you have long standing emotional or spiritual issues, a series of sessions may be beneficial. In general if you find that helpful changes are taking place, it is a good idea to continue treatment.
There are no known contra-indications for Reiki. It is a non-intrusive treatment that can be delivered in a variety of settings and requires no special equipment.

Tarot Card Reading
Back to Home page:
Tarot cards are an ancient mystical system with origins from around the world. Tarot cards are a way of gaining insight present, past and future of a person through it's rich symbology.
Tarot symbols tap into the archetypes, spoken about by psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung and bring together symbology of Eastern
and Western esoteric practices.
For a one to one or online card reading the person comes with some things in their mind that they want to clear or delve into. More than 'yes' 'no' answers, the cards show symbology, often very apt to what the person is going through in their lives, and gives the person a way of understanding their situations and bringing to light certain patterns, solutions and ways of addressing issues that might perceive to be a hindrance.
"I have taken two tarot readings before. Viveka's tarot reading somehow resonated more with my inner self. Unlike other tarot readers or astrologers, she helped me to mediate through my inner wealth. Rather than declaring the readings as my destiny or instilling fear of the present or future. Her readings are more intuitive, insightful and liberating. In a way she acted as a bridge between my sub conscious and it's deeper knowledge . I am definitely going to recommend her to others"

Shakti Energy & Goddess Meditation Groups
Shakti Energy and Goddess Guided Meditation Sessions: focus on unlocking certain aspects of ourselves along with the help and invocation of goddesses.
An explanation of each personified goddesses is followed by short rituals with Mantras(sound vibrations), hand Mudra's(gestures) and some body movements to invoke and invite the goddess energies into the collective space of the class.
With this we can also hold space for any experiences or emotions that come up and be able to release or hold space for them through certain simple somatic embodiment and breath-work exercises.
Each goddess form is a unique pathway into the heart of consciousness and each incarnates and awakens a quality in awareness. The rituals that we perform are for the purpose of using our body, mind and energies to align with the symbols that each Goddess represents, so as to infuse those energies into our daily living.
