GRIEF IN CATS

GRIEF IN CATS

 

GRIEF IN SURVIVING PETS.

Grief in surviving pets – how to help a grieving cat

Looking to find out if animals grieve, or how to help a grieving cat?

Although grief in animals is not well understood currently, you may recognise changes in behaviour in your cats, which may be attributed to grief. While the question of ‘do animals grieve?’ has been widely debated, some animals show varying degrees of grief-attributed behaviour. Others may show no outward signs at all.

In a multiple cat household, the death of a cat can lead to surviving cats showing less inhibition and a new willingness to seek attention from their owner.

While it is important to remember that each cat will behave differently in their grief, there are some common behaviours that may be seen while a cat adjusts to the death of a housemate.

These include:

changes in appetite
changes in sleep patterns
unsettled, restless, wandering around
increase or decrease in confidence
searching and crying
increased or reduced interest in other activities
loss of confidence or a general sadness
attention seeking
in contrast, a pet may not appear to be missing the deceased pet at all
increased use of space in the house

How can I help my cat grieve?

If your cat has died, you’re likely to be worried about the cat that is left behind. Helping pets cope with death can be tricky – their grief is as individual as it would be for you, or any other family member. If you’re worried about how to help a grieving cat, you can try the following:

Stick to a familiar routine. This is helpful in helping your cat adjust to the change in the household

Avoid spending increasing amounts of time with an existing cat following the death of your pet – an increase in attention can be stressful and intense, combined with the potential stress of losing their companion

Think before you introduce another pet into your household. It usually takes some time for cats to settle and for a relationship to form. Assessing your cat’s needs is important at this time when the remaining cat is adjusting to the change

Do cats know when another cat is dying?

There is no evidence to suggest whether cats are aware that their feline friend is dying, and all cats are different in their behaviour.  When Jasper my elderly cat was nearing his end, we had 5 kittens and one of them didn’t leave Jasper’s side for about a year.  Jasper went blind instantly overnight and Minnie used to lay with Jasper and follow him around, Minne really really loved Jasper.  When Jasper was very poorly at the end, Minnie used to sort of ‘talk to Jasper’ by making little chirruping sounds.  I know that Minnie misses Jasper.  And I pay extra attention to Minnie for being such a lovely girl to Jasper.  She’s one of the timidest out of the three feral kittens we rescued from my mum’s garden.  And she was the last to be caught so she is warier of humans than Kiki and Coco, her brother and sister.

In some cases, cats seem to understand that the other cat is experiencing pain. They may show this by either acting distressed on their behalf or by appearing sad or withdrawn. Or,  as previously stated they can actually seek out and take care of the other pet. 

However, some cats can appear indifferent to their fellow cats who are ill.

Should I show the dead body of my pet to my surviving cat?

If your cat has died from a cause that doesn’t pose a risk of infection to other cats, and you feel comfortable doing so, you can show your cat the body of your deceased cat. There is, however, no studies to suggest that this aids the grieving process in your cat. And it’s not something personally I would do.  Jasper was cremated after he was put to sleep so I didn’t have that issue, however, Freddie one of my other cats got run over earlier last year and we buried him in the garden but I wouldn’t have dreamt of showing the other cats his body.  But take what you need, what’s right for me, is not necessarily be what’s right for you <3 

Should I get a new pet to keep my cat company?

Before you think about getting another cat as a companion for your current cat, it is important to think carefully. Grief is entirely personal to you – you might find that you want to adopt another cat almost immediately or wait until you have come to terms with your loss. Don’t rush the experience – do what is best for you.

It is also important to remember that while your cat might display behaviour changes and even appear to miss their feline friend, cats do not need companions to be happy. In fact, cats prefer mostly to live on their own due to their solitary nature. However, I have 9 cats now and they all live perfectly happily together with the exception of Lenny and Lulu who I can’t leave unsupervised with our other cats as they are really nasty to my elder cats.  So at bedtime, they sleep in my daughter’s bedroom separate from the rest of the cats and if I need to go anywhere else they are either in the bedroom or in the kitchen away from the others

I hope that this helps you.

How To See & Feel Energy

How To See & Feel Energy

What is an AURA?

First things first. A basic answer is that the aura is a living energy field that surrounds all living creatures. We are all made up of energy. Even though your body feels solid it is actually made of energy waves vibrating in a certain way. Everything we see and feel is made of energy and molecules clustering together to create their unique pattern that you can identify. Our auras reflect who we are and they extend out from the body. Everybody is different and there is no real set length that they extend. It can be anything between 1 and 5 feet. This can also depend upon our mood, our state of mind etc.

READING AURAS

As you know, the aura surrounds everyone and this energy field is like a magnet. It can pick up the vibrational energies that are floating around everywhere you go.

Your vitality and wellbeing depend on maintaining a healthy aura. Ill-health, emotional upset and turmoil as well as food, drink, any drugs, medicinal or otherwise, our environment, all affect the aura.

Now you can see why it is important to keep your aura in tip-top condition. One of the most important things we can do for ourselves is to cleanse our auras regularly. This will help keep out negative effects from our environment and other people. I use an essence called Astral Clear and I put a few drops on the palms of my hands and then smooth from the top of my head right down my body until I get to my feet, I smooth and ‘fluff’ my aura every morning. (sounds like I’m talking about a cushion doesn’t it saying I fluff my aura, but I can’t think of a better way of explaining it unless you saw me do an actual demonstration of it.

FEELING AURAS

Now you’ve read about what the aura is you’ll probably want to have a go at feeling the aura. It is quite easy to feel the aura and most people are really surprised at how easy it can be felt. Firstly, you need to find a willing person to practice on.

Ask them to sit on a chair where you can stand behind them.

Do you remember the energy exercise I told you about where you rub your hands together and then slowly (palms in front of you, facing each other (as if you were going to clap) then slowly push your hands together and you will find a resistance, that’s energy and you’re feeling energy. It is the same with the aura, rub your hands together and do as I said above, stand behind a person who’s sat down and go above their head and slowly lower your hands until you feel ‘a resistance’ as I call it.

Hold your hands about two feet over the top of their head, close your eyes and slowly allow your hands to move down towards the top of their head until you find contact with their aura. In most cases, this will be between 2 – 6 inches from the top of their head.

The aura will feel different to everyone, however, generally, you will know when you have found the aura as you will be able to feel one or more of the following: – tingling sensation – coolness – warmth – resistance – a rush of air, for me, it’s the ‘resistance’ feeling as that’s how I feel the energy a lot of the time.

Once you have found the aura over the top of the head keep your hands so they are just in contact with it then slowly see if you can follow from the top of the head down the side of the head and over the shoulders. That’s all there is to it! Simples!!

It may take some practice, the same as anything else, but once you’ve done it once you’ll find it easy to do again. Once you feel confident enough, try to find different people to practice on.
You will feel the difference in other people’s aura which all change with how they are feeling health-wise and emotionally etc.

METHODS FOR READING AURAS

There are various different methods. I will give you a couple to get you started and see if they suit you. Feel free to find your own unique way.

SEEING THE AURA FROM YOUR FINGERTIPS

Although it might take a bit of practice, once you get the hang of it you will be able to see the aura fairly easily. I am not talking about picking up the sensations with psychic senses, but actually seeing with your own physical eyes.

Some people can sense the auras rather than see them, others can feel them as heat or cold or buzzing sensations rather than see them (with me it’s the resistance I’ve told you about.

First, make yourself nice and comfortable and relaxed. Try to find a room that is dimly lit, but not dark. Bringing your index fingers together almost but not quite touching. Now, look at the space between the fingers. While you do this allow your eyes to defocus slightly so you are not looking at it in a hard way. In a short space of time, you will be able to see a light hazy mist going from one finger to the other. Just practice this on yourself for a while so that you are confident you can see the most/energy. You are then ready to try to see other people’s auras. Try practising on anyone that will let you!

SEEING ANOTHER PERSON’S AURA

To work with another person you will need to be about 6 feet away from them. It is usually better if you can manage to have them with a neutral coloured background – grey or black is best but cream can work too. Just as long as the colour is not vibrant. Again the room needs to be dimly lit. This is not for any mystical reason at all. It is simply because it takes away distractions whilst you are learning. The energy is very subtle and until you are more accomplished in seeing the aura the fewer distractions the better!
Again, defocus your eyes and look at your subject without staring.

It is best to look at the area around the head. Although if you have practised on yourself before this you should now be able to see the bluey/whitish outline around the whole body (the etheric aura).
Don’t’ worry if you can’t see it straight away – practice will help. This outline sometimes looks as if it is shimmering – much like looking at a road on a sunny day and you see a heat haze rising.

Many do not see it the first time if you look directly where it is. Then like magic, the aura will seem to appear. This can take from 10 seconds to 2 minutes. Once you see the aura try not to get too excited lol or blink – keep relaxed and don’t look directly at it or it will ‘disappear’.

Keep your eyes focussed. Practice and you’ll soon see it 🙂

After you have trained your eyes you can look directly at the aura without losing it. Once you can see the outline, keep looking in that disinterested way and you should see colours starting to build outwards from the etheric aura (emotional aura). If you concentrate on the edge of the etheric aura (the blue/white edge around the body), again eyes slightly out of focus, you should soon be able to make out colours of the emotional aura. As said before the depth or intensity of the aura very much depends upon the vitality of the person. Therefore, you could see anything from a couple of inches to a couple of feet.

Like everything else in life, your skill will improve with practice. If you watch people who do Facebook lives or online videos that is a really good way to see their aura, just let your eyes totally relax and glaze over and you’ll see the aura. I’ve only just started to see colour within the last few days. But I’m going to keep practising so I will be able to see colours fairly clearly from now on.

SEEING AURA AROUND PLANTS AND TREES

Relax in the same way you have done for seeing auras around yourself and others. Get a bowl of flowers or a plant. Gently gaze beyond the flowers or the tree with a soft gaze as before. The aura will soon be seen as energy.

If you can look at treetops this is also a good way to develop your skill.

WHY CAN’T I SEE THE AURA

For most people, it takes time and practice. There are a few that are able to see the aura very quickly but for the majority of people, it takes a bit longer. Initially, we try too hard to see the aura. This is one of the things that you should try to avoid. It is very difficult as I can remember how excited I was when first trying. However, the trick is to relax, more like daydreaming, rather than straining. Seeing the aura is a technique that can be learned by most people. It is not a gift to some select few and not to others. It is simply a matter of practice, practice, PRACTICE!!!!

I will tell you more about what the colours mean another time, first practice seeing the actual aura first and I’ll keep practising to see colours and we’ll take it from there.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s tip.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF REIKI

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.

7 WAYS TO SEND DISTANT HEALING TO AN ANIMAL, PERSON OR PLANT

7 WAYS TO SEND DISTANT HEALING TO AN ANIMAL, PERSON OR PLANT

7 Ways to send healing energy to an animal, person or plant.

Our thoughts are powerful. So strong that it’s often enough only to think of someone to send him a small stream of energy.

We are all energy beings and we all have energy that flows within and around us. When we become aware of this energy and its potential, we can use it for healing the people that we care about and aid the healing of the whole world.

Being able to send energy is not a privilege or a talent. As a matter of fact, we can all do it and as long as we are open and sure whom we would like to send healing energy there should be no problem.

Here’s how to send healing energy to another person, animal or plant from a distance.

1. Prepare the space 

Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.

Try to ensure you have enough space and make sure to be clean.

2. Calm your mind

To calm your mind take a few deep breaths…keep inhaling and exhaling for some time and then set your intention to send healing energy.

You can even say the name of the person to whom you are sending healing energy out loud.

3. Raise your energy

To send a positive air healing energy, start to rub his hands in a circular motion until you feel the energy between them.

You should be able to feel the pulse of energy from the hands when you pull them slowly.

4. Make a ball of energy

Once you feel the energy flowing through your hands, imagine how you are shaping it into a sphere. You can also give these energy balls color, depending on the type of healing you want to send:

Blue: emotional healing
Orange: physical healing
White: spiritual healing / general healing
Green: heart healing
Purple: psychic protection

Focus your attention on this energy ball, visualize how it’s growing bigger, stronger and more powerful with every breath you take.

5. Send the energy

When you feel that your energy ball is strong enough, imagine how you are sending it to the person, plant or animal you chose.

You can even imagine how the person receives the energy and feels its pleasant healing effect.

6. Recharge your batteries 

After you send healing energy, it is important to recharge your batteries by grounding the energy. This could include a walk in nature, meditation or taking a relaxing bath.

Sending healing energy to another person is a very powerful tool and a great way to help others when you can not be physically with them.

7. A couple of important things to remember

  • The quality of your healing energy depends on you, so avoid sending it when you are physically ill or feel emotionally drained.
  • It is not necessary to inform the person you are sending healing energy to that you are doing it, but if you tell him or her about it, they might be more open to receiving the energy.
  • Healing energy must be sent with love. If you feel any negative emotions towards the person you are sending the energy to, stop.
  • Whatever you send returns to you – times three. This means that no matter what kind of energy you send out into the world, it will come back to you three times stronger.

Distance healing is a valuable and powerful tool that anyone can learn to use. So, if someone you know needs a  dose of healing energy, try sending them some.

RAISE YOUR VIBRATION USING THE 5 REIKI PRECEPTS

RAISE YOUR VIBRATION USING THE 5 REIKI PRECEPTS

 

 

Raise Your Vibration Using The Reiki Precepts

Introduction

As part of our Level 1 Reiki training, we are certain to learn of Usui’s precepts and the benefits that these bring to our lives as we start to apply them daily.

When I’m teaching, I love to explain how the precepts can gradually change our way of thinking and acting/reacting as we apply them on a daily basis.  I also like to emphasize what my original Reiki teacher told me, on my Level 1 course, about how very clever Usui was by adding the simple preface of “Just for Today” before each precept making them attainable for us all.

But today I awoke with a very specific thought about how the precepts can help raise our vibration.

How The Precepts Affect Our Vibration

As we know the precepts begin:

Just for today…

  • Do not be Angry
  • Do not Worry

Worry and Anger are both low vibrational emotions.  In fact, as far as the spectrum of emotion goes, they’re pretty much the bottom of the pile (except for despair and hopelessness).

So, it’s no wonder that Usui then went on to add…

Just for today…

  • Be filled with Gratitude

This is a far more positive emotion and one that is far higher on the vibrational scale.

The fifth precept also states…

Just for today…

  • Be kind to people and yourself

What is this teaching us other than to show compassion and love for everyone (and by extension, everything) and very important to ourselves?  The emotions of love and compassion are pretty much the top of the pile when it comes to vibration.

A Way to Apply This in Daily Life

Daily we are bombarded by news of things that are focused on the negative.  That is focused on bringing down our level of vibration. Even if you avoid newspapers and news programmes you will not be able to escape the barrage of information about the terrorist threat, climate change and Brexit etc.

Think about that for a moment.  What is that potentially doing to your vibrational state?

Over my lifetime there has been a constant supply of such fear-inspiring issues: Cold war, the threat of global nuclear destruction, oil running out, global financial crises, housing market crashes and the list goes on and on.

Looking back at my own life, for more than four decades, this led to me living in a state of fear and trepidation.  For example, as a child, I had repeated nightmares about war!

When we live predominantly in this emotional state it weakens who we are.  It suppresses us as individuals. It stops us from reaching our real potential and living a contented and fulfilling life.  This is a HUGE deal! We cannot, MUST not, allow this to be the case!

So, what if we connect all of these kinds of negative emotional triggers to our five Reiki precepts?

If we do, then we will no longer worry about them.  We will no longer be angry about what is happening around Mother Earth.  Instead, we will be moved by LOVE and COMPASSION and act on that basis. As we do, we move and act from a far more empowering emotional standpoint.  AND, through our example, we lead others to do the same!!

Conclusion

So, Just for Today, can we avoid acting from fear and anger?

Can we move to a place where we never act from worry or despair?

If we can, then we can become moved and motivated by LOVE, by COMPASSION, and a desire to help mankind and this beautiful planet upon which we live from a far more empowered stance.

Hope this has helped you today.

HOW DOES REIKI ACTUALLY WORK?

HOW DOES REIKI ACTUALLY WORK?

 

You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body. ~ C.S. Lewis

The human body is made up of over 50 trillion cells. Each cell contains omniscient wisdom and is connected to the universe and every living thing within it. A good analogy is to think of the universe as a huge ocean of water. Every living thing within that ocean is like a tiny droplet. Together these droplets makeup and are part of Reiki the universal life force.

Reiki is part of our genetic structure; an inbuilt intelligence that energises the mind-body and spirit. Reiki stimulates growth, health, life and healing. When it is freely allowed to flow around the body it can keep us alive and healthy for over one hundred and twenty years.

Unfortunately, bad habits and poor choices result in the flow of Reiki being stifled. It is important to note that Reiki cannot be destroyed. Even when we die and the life force leaves our body it continues to exist as part of the universe. Through neglect and ignorance, we abuse this vital component of life.

When the mind-body and spirit are in harmony the biological intelligence that governs the body’s resources and allows it to heal itself and function correctly are intensified. Reiki is the key that unlocks the body’s optimum capabilities. There are seven main energy centres in the body that control the flow of the universal life force. They are called the Chakras. Each chakra is responsible for supplying energy to specific parts of the body. When they are blocked or clogged the body becomes sick and the flow of energy is diluted.

A full Reiki treatment reopens the chakras and re-balances the flow of the universal life force around the body. A person will normally need four full treatments on four consecutive days to boost the flow of Reiki energy. This will stimulate the body’s immune system and natural healing abilities. Normally the body will begin by cleansing itself of toxins. As the poisons are removed, the body becomes re-balanced and the healing process can begin

Many cultures have developed techniques and disciplines that stimulate the flow of KI energy around the body. However, Reiki is the easiest to learn and administer. The techniques are simple to master. The results are profound.

How Reiki Works – The 7 Major Chakra Points

  1. The Crown Chakra (white or violet) is positioned on top of the head. It represents enlightenment, intuition and spiritual vision. The energy supplied to the pineal glands, upper brain and right eye.
  2. The Third Eye Chakra (indigo) is positioned in the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows. It represents psychic perception, telepathy and ESP. The energy supplied to the spine, lower brain, left eye, pituitary gland, nose ears and central nervous system.
  3. The Throat Chakra (light blue) is positioned in the centre of the neck. It represents self-expression, emotions, communication and creativity. The energy supplied to the throat, thyroid gland, upper lungs, arms and digestive tract.
  4. The Heart Chakra (rose and green) is positioned in the middle of the chest. It represents emotions, love, devotion, spiritual growth and compassion. The energy supplied to the heart, thymus gland, liver, lungs and the circulation system.
  5. The Solar Plexus Chakra (yellow) is positioned just above the naval. It represents the centre of the body; food is assimilated, tuned into energy and distributed throughout the body. The energy supplied to the emotions, stomach, liver, digestion, gall bladder and the pancreas.
  6. The Sacral Chakra (orange) is positioned just below the naval. It represents sexual energy, perceptions and the first impressions of people. The energy supplied to the reproductive organs, legs and the glands.
  7. The Root Chakra (red) is positioned at the genitals. It represents life, physical vitality, birth and creation. The energy supplied to the spine, kidneys, bladder and the suprarenal glands.

Reiki is ever-present in our bodies. This means anyone can harness this profound inbuilt intelligent energy for healing.

However, without being attuned to the universal life force you will only be using about 10-20 per cent of that energy.

Madam Takata explained it best when she described Reiki as being similar to radio waves. We cannot see them but we know they are everywhere around us. When we turn on a radio and tune into the radio waves we can pick up a signal. That signal is turned into a radio programme. Similarly, the universal life force is everywhere, although we cannot see it unless we use Kirlian photography.

When we are tuned into the energy by a Reiki Master we are able to harness Reiki to heal ourselves and others. This gift of healing remains with us for the rest of our lives. We can only lose it if we use it for negative or destructive purposes. Reiki is pure and it needs to be treated as such.

Reiki is channelled through the hands. When you place your hands on your own body or the body of another person for the purpose of healing you connect with the universal life force. The wisdom of Reiki then goes to work to bring about healing, balance and whatever is needed on a holistic level.

The best way to understand how Reiki works is to experience it.

God be in my head, and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes, and in my looking.
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking.
God be in my heart, and in my thinking.
God be at my end, and at my departing. – Anon

I hope this helps explain how Reiki actually works.
Love Trudy x
