Meet Astera Manis of Silver Star Reiki in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Astera Manis.

Astera, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
From a young age, I was told that people always felt better after they talked to me. I gravitated toward the healing arts and acquired a MA in Clinical Psychology. Looking to explore more integrative methods of healing, Reiki found me and I embraced the world of energy healing.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There have been many challenges but the biggest challenge is showing others that there is an alternative and integrative way of healing.

Please tell us about Silver Star Reiki.
My business is Silver Star Reiki. Healing the Soul with Energy Medicine. Seeing the Soul with the Biofield Viewer. Chicago’s Best Reiki Therapist in 2014 – 2015. Chicago’s #1 Top Thumbtack Pro Reiki Therapist 2015-2017

I am a Reiki Master Teacher Practitioner, with a MA in Clinical Psychology, a certified Biofield Viewer Practitioner and a Certified Soul Detective Practitioner.

Reiki is a Japanese technique and holistic bodywork method that was introduced in the 1930s by Dr. Mikao Usui. It is used for stress reduction and relaxation therapy that also promotes energy healing on emotional, physical and spiritual levels. Reiki means “universal energy” and comes from higher connection that is designed to heal on all
levels. Reiki provides “energy nourishment” and restores the body of the blocks that leave people feeling drained. It is administered by “laying on the hands” and is based on the “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force is low then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The Biofield Viewer is a real time imaging system that is able to detect and visualize the subtle layers of light activity around living systems. This technology is a research tool which allows me to monitor clients’ progress.

Soul Detective protocols are therapeutic tools for therapists and energy healers to help clients heal the origins or “invisible roots” of their complex emotional wounds. Through connecting to the True Self and one’s own inner guidance, these tools empower a client to fulfill the soul’s mission in life and to joyfully express one’s gifts and talents to help bring personal and planetary peace and harmony.

Healing is only for a “season” so, I spend lots of time with my clients that they can move forward and have a happy and healthy life.
