What is Jivot?
What is Jivot?
Jivot (Живот) means life in Bulgarian .
The root of the word Jivot is ancient and is still used in all Slavic languages today and has the same meaning. The very first letter of the word is believed to be an ancient symbol from prehistoric civilizations before they used alphabets which looked like this: Ѫ. It is represented in the original version of the Cyrillic alphabet. Now that symbol is obsolete and has evolved in to a letter representing the same sound phonetically, but looks slightly different: Ж.
What is Reiki?
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that promotes stress reduction and relaxation. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei- means Universal Power, or God’s Wisdom; Ki – means Life Force Energy. Therefore ReiKi can be translated to “spiritually guided life force energy.”
ReiKi flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. It is more likely we feel sick when our ReiKi is low, and when it is high and flowing, we are feeling strong and healthy.
ReiKi has been proven effective with healing numerous diseases as well as in pain management and emotional disbalance.
As described by ICRT:
During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Reiki Ideals to the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five prinicples of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki. Their purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy. It must also include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value:
The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today, do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.
Pray these words to your heart and chant these words with your mouth Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind
The founder, Usui Mikao
Who is Geri?
Who is Geri?
My full name is Gergana Kirilova. I was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and came to the US over a decade ago. I have experience in the business world both in corporate, entrepreneurial and nonprofit sectors. I enjoyed the satisfaction of making money, but for some reason something was lacking in my life. I was not happy and eager to find the missing piece.
I stumbled upon Reiki at a friend’s psychic party in Lincoln, Nebraska where the psychic’s daughter from Chicago was in town with her mom and offering sessions. I scheduled my first Reiki session out of curiosity and was hooked. After that, each year my Reiki Master Teacher Terry Dulin was in town, I would advance in levels ultimately achieving the certification of Usui Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master.
The Midwest is still warming up to the idea of the metaphysical world and alternative healing. I met amazing people through Reiki whom I call dear friends and soul mates. After partnering with two of my fellow Reiki Masters – Cat Lewis and Jade Wruble we created the first Reiki community in Lincoln, and dare I say Nebraska all together. We began small Reiki Share circles where four to five people would show up. In a matter of just a few months we grew to groups of over twenty people- Reiki Masters, psychics, healers and other curious souls alike. All together without a competition. I am proud to say the Reiki Shares in Lincoln are still going strong.
In the summer of 2017 an opportunity presented itself and my husband and I gave away all our possessions, bought an RV and set out on an adventure across the country, settling near Portland, Oregon. Knowing people in the Northwest are more open to alternative healing, I hope to learn from others as well as have the opportunity to teach the amazing power of Reiki to others. Namaste!
