Reiki (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life force energy that is spiritually guided’. It’s a form of alternative medicine called energy healing.

How does Distance Reiki work?
Distance Reiki works in accordance with the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all created of energy matter and part of a larger whole. Therefore, invoking this law during a Reiki session allows the practitioner to link an object to the energy field of the recipient. I prefer using a photo of the person, along with a healing crystal from my collection that I am most drawn to for that particular individual.
What is a Medium?
A medium is a person who uses their abilities (the Clair senses) to communicate with people and/or spirits in the spirit world. Mediums are essentially mediators between those in the spirit world and those in the living world. Providing a three-way communication channel: Spirit —> Medium—> Recipient
Different types of Mediumship
All mediums communicate differently, no individual is always the same as they each use their own unique gifts and abilities to connect to the spirit world. The Clair senses are types of intuitive abilities that correspond with the five human senses of seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and tasting.
Clairvoyance (Clear Seeing) - This when the medium will see visions/a mini movie of past, present, or future flashes through our mind’s eye, or third eye.
Clairaudience (Clear Hearing) - This when the medium will hear words, sounds, or music in their own mind’s voice. It is rare, but on occasion spirit will be able to create audible sound that you can hear with your human ears. This takes a tremendous amount of focus on energy for the spirit to be able to manifest the actual sound.
Clairsentience (Clear Feeling) - This involves feeling a person’s or spirit’s emotions or feeling another’s physical pain. Many mediums use this psychic ability unconsciously automatically in order to be able to fully understand or gain empathy of a feeling or situation they are experiencing. Experiences include a strong “gut” feeling of positive or negative about someone we just met or even known at times. Another is that one can get “chills” for no apparent reason. But normally these feelings are valid and spirit is sending us confirmation that yes, what your intuitively feeling is accurate.
Claircognizance (Clear Knowing) - This is when a medium will have knowledge of people, events, or environments that they would not normally have knowledge about. Spirit impresses the medium with truths that simply pop into the mind from out of nowhere. An example could be a premonition, vivid dream, or during a mediumship session if spirit wants them to know something. Claircognizance takes an immense amount of faith on both the communicators side and spirit side because there’s often no practical explanation for why we or the medium suddenly “know” something. In fact many professors, philosophers, doctors, scientists, spiritual/religious leaders, and many others tend to be highly intuitive and seem to just know the facts or situations with a sense of certainty. It’s their own personal ability that they may or may not be aware of that are tapping into the spirit world getting these quick impressions to help solve many things going on in the world or daily lives of humanity.
Clairalience (Clear Smelling) - This is when a medium is able to smell odors that don’t have any kind of physical source. This includes smelling cherry tobacco smoke in an old home and you're alone with no one around to actually provide this smell, it could also be a deceased relative or loved one’s cologne or scent they would always wear as a sign of their presence being around you at that time.
Clairgustance (Clear Tasting) - This is when a medium has the ability to taste something that isn’t actually there. The experiences often come out of the blue if a spirit or deceased loved one is attempting to communicate. Many times as a memory or association that we have with them that reminds us of them. It could be a particular food or beverage.
What can I expect from a reading?
I always ask that my clients come in with a welcoming open mind for their session(s). Oftentimes than not, spirit tells you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear. They are always working on guiding and healing you for your highest good. It’s extremely common that some information that will come through may not make sense to you at the exact time of our reading. This is completely normal, as there is no time in the spirit realm and they prefer not to put limits on things due to constant energy shifts and free will. They truly want you to live in the moment, and enjoy all of what life has to offer. I have had clients call me or text me weeks later after a reading, stating how everything made sense now due to what was currently happening in their life now, and not before.
How do you communicate?
Every spirit communicates with me differently. Using my own personal senses they already know which way is best to communicate, although sometimes my archangels will have to help them depending on what message they are trying to relay to me. I tend to see a lot of visual images and symbols, feel the emotions they wish me to empathize with to fully understand what they are trying to convey to me, and others prefer to “speak” to me with thoughts.
Will I become emotional during a reading?
It’s very possible! It really depends on the reading. They love to convey their love for you and things that resonate with you on a deep soulful level. Do not be surprised if you feel certain types of emotions. I encourage you to express what you are feeling/thinking. This is important because a lot of healing takes place during readings on many different levels. A lot of my clients have said they felt relieved, happy, and in extreme thought after a reading because they simply did not expect to get affected in such a positive way. That is spirit’s way of healing you!
Can I bring questions?
Absolutely!! I encourage you to be as open-minded as possible and come with some questions or concerns that are on your mind. I cannot promise I will be able to answer all of them. I cannot control what spirit wants to answer and what they do not. I am simply the medium, or “middle woman” of what they choose to convey. They depend on me to interpret their messages so that you may understand things more easily.
Can I get a recording of my session?
As of right now, only my Zoom sessions are recordable. However, I always encourage my clients if they have another device laying around with recording capabilities they are more than welcome to do so. I do ask that you ask for my permission first, so that I am aware of the reading being recorded.
Why do I have to wait 24-48 hours for my Email Angel Cards reading?
This allows Chelsea time to properly manage and incorporate all of her sessions effeciently, and provides you with the best quality of reading as possible.
