Psi Phenomena, Reiki Energy Healing, and Spirituality within Spiritual Guidance: An Integrative Intervention Model by Rosemary Kearney Ellison Psi Phenomena, Reiki Energy Healing, and Spirituality within Spiritual Guidance: An Integrative Intervention Model is conceived as the development of an emerging model in the practice and art of spiritual guidance. The Reiki/spiritual guidance integrative intervention is a new model that I created, and I found and elucidated the synergistic effects through this research. This thesis asks: can such an integrative effort lead one to experience a fuller sense of self as a spiritual being, providing a context for increased satisfaction and meaning, and ultimately engaging the spiritual path of one's very life? I reviewed pertinent literature to ascertain how current research illuminates the areas of influence and to identify areas for continued research to further integrate spirituality in the practice of Reiki and spiritual guidance. This research inquiry was qualitative: Methods included 2 semistructured in-depth interviews, 1 pre- and 1 post-intervention, to elicit the personal narrative of the experience of receiving Reiki/spiritual guidance. Three participants were selected from the general public, in response to the advertised Reiki/spiritual guidance research opportunity. Integral Inquiry methods included my practice of intention for the highest good and healing, ritual for the creation of safe, sacred space, and my journal observations of somatic awareness, intuitive, psychic, and synchronistic occurrences. This original research may lead to further studies that could demonstrate the efficacy and foster development of the Reiki integrative intervention as an emergent model in the practice of spiritual guidance toward wholeness—body, mind, and spirit.
