THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF REIKI

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF REIKI

<3 REIKI ~ WHAT IS REIKI? <3

Today I’m going to tell you a little bit about Reiki and explain what it is and how it can help you in the most amazing ways.

The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. It is pronounced RAY KEE.

Rei is often defined as ‘Spiritual’ and Ki as ‘energy’, so roughly translating the Japanese word we get ‘spiritual energy’ or ‘universal life-force energy’

Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things.

Ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans

<3 EVERYTHING IS ENERGY AND I MEAN EVERY SINGLE THING! <3

YOU are energy, I AM energy, animals are energy, objects are energy, the table, the chair, the ceiling the floor are all made up of energy.

So when we think of ourselves as being ‘energetic beings’ we can understand more easily that if there are any energetic imbalances within our body then we can become sick, or not function as we should.

That can affect our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Think about this as an example, when you were a child and you hurt yourself and you went running to your mum and she kissed it better, that is actually a form of energy work!

If we have pains in our body, we instinctively hold our hands over our bodies where we hurt or where the pain is, and instinctively we know what to do. Again you are working with your own energy!

<3 Everyone can use Reiki <3

All you need is to learn how to do it and receive an ‘Attunement’ – where the Reiki Master gives the sacred energetic codes & symbols to the Reiki student and opens up their channels for the energy to flow through so they can perform Reiki. This is done on a 1-1 basis. Or I do it on a 1-1 basis. It can be done in person or distantly. When energy work is done ‘distantly’ it is called ‘remote’ healing, or ‘remote’ Attunements, ‘remote or distant’ healing.

Reiki is a non-invasive, completely benign healing technique which has become THE MOST POPULAR energy healing modality.

As Western medicine continues to explore alternative methods of healing, Reiki is destined to play an important role as an ACCEPTED & RESPECTED healing practice which is now widely used in hospitals and hospices.

<3 SO WHAT IS REIKI GOOD FOR? <3

Reiki reduces stress, illness, emotional and physical dis-ease.

<3 WHAT HAPPENS DURING A REIKI SESSION? <3

During a Reiki session, the practitioner places their hands on or above the client’s body and they activate the energy so it starts to flow from their hands. They place their hands over specific areas of the body BUT the energy will go EXACTLY where it is needed. Reiki is a really intelligent energy and it’s a beautiful energy to work with.

<3 INTENTION is vital during ALL modalities of energy work, remember even our THOUGHTS are energetic so you always set the INTENTION that the Reiki is used for the highest and greatest good of all concerned.

It is also really important to remember that we are only CHANNELS or VESSELS for the Universal Life Force Energy to flow through. <3

<3 CAN I FEEL ENERGY? YES, YOU CAN, TRY THIS:- <3

Rub your hands together briskly, then put your hands in front of you with your palms facing each other, (as if you are going to clap), slowly, very slowly push your hands together and slowly move them apart. As you do this, you will find a ‘resistance’ type of feeling, keep doing it and you will find that you can really ‘feel’ the energy between your hands……

This is energy, you can now feel the energy!

Try the exercise again and try to mould that energy into a ball. If you’ve done that, you’ve made a chi ball (a ball of energy)

<3 WHO CAN LEARN REIKI? <3

Anyone can learn Reiki, absolutely anyone and when you can use Reiki you can use it for every single thing in your life, (as I mentioned before), you can send Reiki to your food, your drinks to infuse them with healing energies, you can send it to objects like your car, (so it starts up) you can make a huge reiki chi ball and place it completely around your home – may be so nothing goes wrong with your home or to keep it protected and safe – Reiki can be used on crystals, technology, relationships, projects, your house. It will work on everything and anything, how amazing is that?

Animals are very energy sensitive. I have 6 cats & 2 dogs and whenever I do Reiki they gravitate towards me. I often give my furbabies healing when they are sat on my lap or beside me. When they have had enough they get up and move away. You can also give Reiki to wild animals and that’s a lovely thing to do.

Plants and trees love Reiki. I often re-energise my plants & flowers. If I see a plant wilting I will send some energy & in no time it’s thriving again.

Water (infuse it with Reiki energy) – I ‘Reiki’ my water and my food. It can all be infused with the universal source energy.

Crystals can also be charged & infused with Reiki energy.

So to re-cap, Reiki can be used on crystals, technology, relationships, projects, your house, it will work on EVERYTHING with your intention of healing.

Reiki is like a muscle the more you use it the stronger it becomes.

<3 IS IT SAFE TO USE REIKI ON PREGNANT WOMEN, CHILDREN & BABIES? <3

It is safe to use Reiki on children and pregnant women & babies. It is 100 % safe & totally natural.

Reiki can do NO HARM whatsoever.

You can also use Reiki to help people pass over to the other side when they are dying (or making the transition). It is now widely used in many hospices and hospitals.

When you get more advanced in energy work you can also use energy work to help lost souls (attachments) or whatever you like to call them to transition smoothly.

REIKI BOXES AND INTENTIONS

You can write your AFFIRMATIONS AND INTENTIONS on paper and put them into a Reiki Box and send healing to your Reiki Box on a daily basis.

You can put people’s names in the Reiki Box who need healing and send healing to the Reiki Box with the intention that it is going to the relevant people.

You will see significant changes in all areas of your physical, emotional and spiritual health & wellbeing if you use Reiki on a regular basis.

I absolutely LOVE Reiki and am so passionate about it so I want to share it with everyone.

MY MORNING RITUALS

MY MORNING RITUALS

MORNING ROUTINES & RITUALS

I thought today I’d share with you what I do each morning.

By doing my little morning ritual it makes a huge difference to my day because when I do my ritual I generally have a great day and I’m in the right mindset and I feel calm, balanced and positive about the day ahead.

We all know what it is like when you jump out of bed and rush out the house after pressing the snooze button a few too many times and the snowball effect that can have ~ you can’t find your keys, you spill coffee on yourself, you get caught up in traffic and end up frazzled and a stress head before you’ve even really started your day.

To avoid doing this I’ll let you into a secret and how I make my mornings 100 times better.

I get up a little earlier than anyone else in the house so I’ve got about 30 mins to myself.

I light a scented candle and I ground and protect myself.

I listen to a short guided meditation and set my intention for the day.

I use Affirmations, crystals, essential oils or essences (all the goodies in my energy kit), whatever I’m drawn to help me through the day.

I choose an oracle card for the day

I practice ‘deliberate gratitude’ for all the blessings in my life by writing them in my journal.

I send a blessings ball of light to the planet, humanity and all the animal kingdom. It is so very easy to do a blessing ball of light. Simply rub your hands together, visualise a person you want to send this precious gift to, then simply visualise this person totally encased in a bubble of the highest vibrational white light and intend that you are sending love to that person and it is done. I do this on a regular basis and sometimes I have to smile to myself because someone might message me and say ‘hey I felt something warm and fuzzy today, did you do anything or send me any healing?’ and I tell them that I did send them a blessing ball of light. It’s something that takes only a few minutes but it’s such a lovely gift to pass on. My version of paying it forward but with love.

By doing these simple things that take no longer than 20 mins, I know that I’m going to have a great day from the outset.

Have you got any little routines or rituals that you’d like to share to help others?

7 GREAT BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

7 GREAT BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

 

There are numerous benefits to the daily discipline of meditation, many of which the majority of people simply aren’t aware of. However, by spending some time every day in meditation, you’ll be surprised at just how much long term good it will do your entire mind, body and spiritual being.

Here are just 7 benefits of meditation.

1. Stress Reduction

One of the biggest and most obvious benefits of meditation is a reduction in stress. As you meditate, you actually begin to get control over your emotions which can reduce feelings of anxiety. Since there are a huge number of people that are currently using anti-anxiety medications and the number keeps going up, it’s clear that anxiety is something that needs to be addressed.

2. Make Better Choices

One thing that many people have found once they start meditating is that it encourages them to live a healthier life. Some people are able to quit smoking just by meditating, and others simply begin to crave more natural foods. Imagine how much healthier you could be if taking some time to meditate was all that it took to give you a desire to eat healthily.

3. Improved Concentration

This is something that has been studied in depth by some researchers, and it has been discovered that people who meditate are not only able to concentrate better, but they’re also able to multitask much more easily, which means getting a lot more done in a shorter amount of time. As meditating allows you to centre yourself, you can better focus on everything you need to do.

4. Self-Acceptance

For many people, it can be hard to accept themselves, whether it’s accepting who they are as a person or physical problems. But either way, meditation can help you accept yourself as you are. This can then make you a better person and allow you to more confidently share yourself with others, leading to deepening of relationships.

5. Be Happier

One study that looked closely at brain activity during meditation found that meditation decreased activity in the right side of the brain where negative emotions are formed while increasing activity in the left side where positive emotions are produced. So in addition to greater self-acceptance bringing more happiness, your actual brain chemistry changes to make you happier.

6. Be Healthier

Another physical change that happens in your body as you meditate is that blood pressure is lowered as nitric oxide is released, which increases blood circulation. In one study, 2/3 of participants were able to lower their blood pressure through meditation enough that they were able to stop taking blood pressure medicine. Other studies show that the immune system is also boosted by meditation.

7. Reduce Ageing

Although there’s no evidence that meditation can lengthen your life, it does keep your brain from ageing. In fact, a study done at Harvard University showed that those who meditate have larger quantities of brain cells and their brains actually physically stopped ageing. It’s uncertain exactly what causes this, but it’s clear that meditation has a profoundly positive impact on the brain.

I hope you find these 7 reasons for meditation useful.

MY TOP 3 TIPS TO REDUCE STRESS/ANXIETY

MY TOP 3 TIPS TO REDUCE STRESS/ANXIETY

 

The world and how we live, communicate and interact has changed forever. Although we all still have 24 hours each day to work, socialize, play, relax, study, grow and enjoy time with our family and friends; we are bombarded by so many outside sources and influences all fighting for our time and attention, that it can become overwhelming and very stressful… unless we take the time to control and reduce the everyday stress that we are all exposed to.

Taking the time to learn how to deal with and reduce everyday stress is something that everybody should invest in for the sake of their own health and well-being. It is a well-known fact that our health can suffer from the effects of stress, which in turn can also make it difficult to think clearly enough to solve even the simplest of tasks and function productively each day. The good news is that there are a number of easy techniques for reducing your stress which we will cover here in this article.

As more studies show almost daily, the link between stress and so many health problems; stress management becomes an important consideration for many people. The following 3 stress management tips can help you to reduce the levels of stress in your life, so consider embracing them into your daily life.

Stress Reduction Tip 1: Massage and Reiki

Treat yourself to a massage. This is a great way to reduce and manage your stress levels. Massage has often been thought of as a great way to relieve sore muscles, but it can also reduce overall body tension, anxiety and stress too. There are a lot of studies that prove massage is a great way to reduce stress when done regularly. There are many different types of massage, so you should try several kinds and find the one that you prefer. Nowadays it’s not usually hard to find qualified massage therapists. Massage can release endorphins in the brain which produce pleasure which is helpful in not only stress reduction but also helpful for emotional issues such as anxiety and depression to name but a few.

If you cannot find a local Masseuse then you can also try a self-massage after maybe a hot bath, or get your husband, wife or partner to give you a massage. You could add reiki into the mix, by placing the reiki symbols into your hands or the hands of your Masseuse, and ask that reiki flows through your/their hands during the massage.

You could also add Reiki to any essential oils you may use during the massage, by placing your hands around the jar or container. This is very useful if you are getting a massage from someone who is not already attuned to reiki.

Stress Reduction Tip 2: Relaxation Techniques and Reiki

Most of are already aware of several different methods of relaxation that can have a very positive impact of reducing stress. Some of the most popular modalities for relaxation are basic mediation and the various forms of yoga. You can easily learn meditation or yoga to relax and reduce stress either by taking online home study courses or in person at a local workshop.

There are also other options for these major relaxation techniques. A simpler and more straightforward option would be to learn deep breathing techniques. You can use these even when you are sitting at your desk at work or on a bus or train on the way to and from work. Progressive muscle relaxation and mental imagery are other popular basic relaxation techniques you can use to reduce everyday stress.

Once again, Reiki can be added to the mix to enhance your relaxation exercises or modalities. For example, if you were practising muscle relaxation or mental imagery, you could intend and imagine the healing white light of reiki flowing through your body, to every muscle, tissue and cell from the very tips of your toes to the top of your head, bringing waves of healing, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Stress Reduction Tip 3: Exercising on Schedule

It’s just like what your physical education teacher always said. Maintaining a regular exercise schedule can do wonders for your body. The major benefit of exercise is that it can encourage the proper circulation of your blood. This, in turn, ensures that oxygen and nutrients reach the various cells in your body. You need these if you ever hope to prevent or fight off the bad effects of stress on your health.

Reiki can be used to aid in the recovery process after exercise through daily self-treatments. You can also add Reiki to your hot bath or shower after exercise to soak or wash away any fatigue after exercise.

Finally, in order to reduce your everyday stress levels, remember to get enough sleep and eating healthily.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful.
