We had the good fortune of connecting with Rasika Parab and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rasika, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
About 10 years ago, I came to the United States from India. When I arrived here, I was barely speaking English. To improve my English, I started reading English books, watching English movies and TV series. A great thing in my life is that I never gave up! I am a licensed Cosmetologist, Esthetician and Laser Technician. While working with clients I get to know that my energy makes them very relaxed and peaceful. While working previous jobs, I heard about “Reiki”. I did not pay much attention in it but somehow this word was coming back to me. After a year of waiting, I decided to learn Reiki Healing energy. With this I found my passion of helping others. Everything on this earth has healing energy including all living and non-living things. We are so busy that we do not even spend time to discover ourselves and our energy. Some people do not even seem to believe in it! I am always passionate of helping others and assisting them to move through the barriers that they may be facing throughout their lives. I am so fascinated that something so simple and easy to learn which makes such a dramatic effect in promoting deep relaxation, increase body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being for others. Scientifics studies have demonstrated Reiki’s therapeutic value and because of this, Reiki is offered as part of regular patient care in over 800 hospitals across the United States. With Reiki healing I found my purpose to help people and heal them for their highest good. Reiki can be a real-life saver for those experiencing stressful lives.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
“Reiki with Rasika” is energy healing place where I perform Reiki healing sessions for people and animals. I also teach Reiki classes. With the help of Reiki healing, I remove blockages from your chakra and create balance in your daily life. If you are dealing with anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, unwanted habits, body pain and many more, Reiki sessions help. Reiki is a Japanese method for stress reduction that also promotes relaxation. It is practiced by millions of people all over the world! The session is performed by using specific Reiki hand positions. I also incorporate crystals in Reiki Sessions. During a Reiki session, the client is fully clothed in a comfortable position either laying down on a treatment table or sitting in a chair. Reiki is a specific form of energy healing, in which the hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body. I also conduct “long-distance,” Reiki healing via zoom. It is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and problem and always creates a beneficial effect for my clients. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to reduce side effects and promote recovery. My Reiki classes are available for those who want to learn how to give Reiki sessions. Reiki is a universal energy available to us to help with any problem or difficulty we may encounter. It is a simple technique which can be easily learn by anyone. Once you have learned Reiki you can give it to yourself or to others. It is spreading all over the world. I also do Reiki healing for animals. Animals are much more sensitive to energy than humans. Animals are natural healers and sometimes take on their person’s problems, often to heal them. Many animals/pets give Reiki/energy healing to their owners naturally on daily basis. Any pet could benefit from Reiki, from dogs, cats and small mammals to exotics, fish, or birds. Just learning Reiki is not enough. I have been keeping myself fully grounded and focused by performing Reiki for me and meditation practice on daily basis which are crucial for selfcare. Since a couple of years, I have been giving Reiki session to other people, “In-person” and “distance”. I connect with my long-distance client with energetic levels, distance is just the name. By helping people relax, it improves their enjoyment of life. Since I have started Reiki practice, I notice myself in peace, motivated, and grounded on daily basis. After my Reiki session and Reiki classes, the feedback I receive is so incredible which increases my confident more and more each day. I started my practice sessions with my family and myself to gain confidence and experience. When I first started giving my services, I was so excited that I wanted to attract everyone I knew as my client so they could benefit from Reiki. Some people would neglect my help as they did not believe in healing properties of any sort. One thing I have learned in that process is that I am here, and my services are only for those who wants to make changes in their lives at physical, mental, and emotional levels. I am not here to change everyone on the earth. Starting your own business means trusting in yourself first and to believe. I am fortunate to have a wonderful tool such as Reiki to help me and others. I am on the right path; I love doing what I do which make a difference in others life for their highest good. This mindset gives me peace and strength as an entrepreneur. “Reiki with Rasika” is offering energy healing services for people and animals. Reiki classes are available for those who want to learn how to give Reiki sessions. Reiki is a simple technique which is easy to learn. Once you have learned, you can give Reiki to yourself or to others. I pour my heart and guide my client with honesty. Having a happy and satisfied client is my asset to increasing my business. Reiki has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and problem and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques. Reiki helps one feel less pain and physical discomfort, become more calm and emotionally balanced, and reduce stress and anxiety. I will also focus on any issues/areas that you have requested for you or your pet. Once you/your pet are relaxed, all levels of healing take place which is only for your highest good. Reiki never does any harm. The purpose is to create deep relaxation, to increase body’s natural healing processes, reduces pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing. As an entrepreneur I am just working with integrity, which will allow results to occur.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The thriving city of Frisco, Texas has so many fun things to do around the city. Frisco Commons Park has extensive park and trails, fishing spots, playgrounds and picnic areas! This is a great place for a one-day picnic. I prefer to spend time with nature. We would spend the weekend camping and fishing at Buckhorn Creek, Lake O’ The Pines located in Jefferson, Texas. If we get any big catches, there might be a change for a fish dinner! We would dine at a nearby restaurant such as Brushy Landing on the last day of the most fabulous weekend.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shout-out to one of my Reiki teachers, Terry Dulin who has supported and guided me for success. Most of all, I want to shout out for my husband who has been my spine in this business and every day’s support. He has always motivated me through new ideas. He believes in me; he gives me courage to move forward. I want to give a shout-out to my beautiful clients and students who trusted me in this journey.
