Poem from Catherine Severin

Poem from Catherine Severin

Catherina Severin is from Denmark and lives in Arizona. She is a Reiki Master and over the years with Reiki she has developed an ability to channel soul portraits. She was involved in the Reiki Home project from the very beginning and in that process she was led to draw the spiritual essence of the Reiki Home. This drawing is the visual image for this Blog.  With it came a poem which is a calling for coming “Together in Vitality. “


From a place of pure being
There is another way of seeing
Knowingly from a pint of view
Recognizable, yet seemingly new
From this space of clarity
Mainifesting prosperity
A Reiki Home for all to see
And quite a few to come and be
Holding the thought,the dream comes through.
In Reiki to mirror you, you, and you.
A vision stretching from Earth to Sky
For Reiki friends to support and buy
Energy gathered for humanity’s sake
It is all a matter of give and take
Reiki for balance and peace at hearts
Be part of the family from where it starts.

From Catherina:

In my desire to describe the concept of a Reiki Home and the warm embracing feeling I had when thinking about it, I asked myself: “How does it look?”

“Like a massive dynamic energetic gateway – a two-way system where Reiki can feed into Spirit and Spirit can feed into Reiki wherever it is needed on the planet…”

So I decided to do an experiment and draw the Reiki Home using the same intuitive method I use for my spirit portraits in soft pastels. I ask to be shown the colors of the soul and then the whiteness of the paper speaks to me. It is as if the image appears translucently in a step-by-step process.  Here is the description of the drawing from my eyes.

Clear blue tones of ocean and sky gave color to signify the souls and entities who would relate and/or benefit from that which a Reiki Home would offer – physically as well as non-physically.

Intertwined faces showed up as reflections of the mystic we each hold within us. The part of us who truly wishes to remind us to trust Reiki.

Translucent golden-white velvety light showed itself as a mirror of humanity’s connection to all there is.

Strokes of green from the fertile lushness of plants and forests created the roof for the Reiki Home, a sign of the ever sprouting and refreshing space that a Reiki Home will provide.

Though motion may not be obvious in this “portrait”, I sense a feeling of great movement, as if the house is a rocket set off to align with Spirit and Truth. This motion creates the two-way portal mentioned above. I see this gateway manifesting easily if only we gather together in a mutual effort to establish a physical place as an example: A moving still point of Reiki in space and time.

I was given a precious gift (English/Danish)

I was given a precious gift (English/Danish)

I was given the precious gift to be able to see the Ranch in Arizona where the Reiki Home might be placed. I found my heart made an immediate and strong home connection. A bridge was built inside me.

Reiki has always been home for me. It is a precious gift living in my heart which is always serving me and the life I live and others whom I serve by teaching.

The Ranch has a warm and welcoming energy. The physical ground beams from old supporting grounding heart energy which I found so supporting for just being in my Reiki heart, and I felt and experienced a huge Reiki circle expanding in front of me.

In my perception every human being has a need to belong to a physical place, a need to get together. I found that place in Reiki many years ago, and I found it again at the Ranch. I also felt a need to give back to my precious Reiki in gratitude for all the precious gift and supporting energy, which I have received and still are receiving. In my practice I often experience that a recipient of Reiki also wants to give something in return.

I see The Reiki Home as a beautiful place for people with Reiki in their hearts to connect from all over the globe.

It is all there.

In gratitude,


Jeg fik den fantastiske gave, at besøge Ranchen i Green Valley i Arizona, hvor Reiki Home muligvis vil blive placeret rent fysisk. Med det samme, følte jeg en umiddelbar og stærk hjem-forbindelse i mit hjerte. En bro blev bygget inde i mig.

Reiki har altid været hjem for mig. Det er en dyrebar gave, som bor i mit hjerte. Reiki er der altid for mig og tjener mig, samt det liv jeg lever, på den bedst mulige måde. Og på unik vis får jeg lov, at tjene Reiki, ved at undervise andre i Reiki.

Ranchen i Green Valley har en varm og indbydende energi, der tager venligt imod en. Den fysiske jord emmer og stråler af gammel jordforbindende hjerte energi, som for mig virkede utrolig støttende, og det var nemt bare at være i mit Reiki hjerte. Ved bare at være i mit Reiki hjerte, oplevede jeg en enorm Reiki cirkel udvide sig, lige foran mig.

I min opfattelse har ethvert menneske behov for, at tilhøre et fysisk sted, et behov for at høre sammen med andre. Jeg fandt dette sted i Reiki for mange år siden, og jeg genfandt det igen på ranchen i Green Valley.

Her følte jeg et behov for, at give noget tilbage til Reiki, i taknemmelighed for den energetiske støtte, og de mange unikke gaver, som jeg har modtaget og stadig modtager.

I min daglige praksis og undervisning, oplever jeg ofte, at en modtager af Reiki healing, ofte ønsker at give noget tilbage til Reiki, i taknemmelighed for den modtagende energi.

Jeg ser Reiki Home, som et smukt globalt, unikt sted for mennesker med Reiki i deres hjerter, hvor det er muligt at mødes, og være sammen i Reiki cirklens smukke energi.

Det er der alt sammen.

I taknemmelighed,
