Reiki Healing Touch

Are you aware of the fact that our body contains more energy than it actually uses to carry out its activities? Now, let me make a point! I am not talking about the physical energy that we utilize, but about the healing energy which is unseen to us but for sure, is felt by us. This invisible energy is what we call the “life force energy”. The concept of healing energy is well explained by the Japanese technique – Reiki. The word can be divided into two halves: Rei means “The Higher power” and ki means “life energy”. Precisely, it is a spiritually guided life force energy. The basic idea projected by reiki healing touch is that self healing is the path of salvation from ailments.

Reiki: Healing Energy

Therapies use tools and medications for treatment of ailments. But reiki healing therapy uses the energy of the body. Energy that drives our body can be both free-flowing and stagnant. This therapy uses the power of mind to govern the energies of the body and bring it under control. In due course of time, this therapy works wonders in enhancing the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. We all are aware of a simple truth of life: A relaxed mind leads to a rejuvenated body. This is how a person feels after undergoing a reiki therapy session. A session usually has the reiki practitioner who first seeks the permission of the patient to cure him (here the permission is for the mental confidence and trust of the patient on the practitioner). And then, the reiki practitioner starts with the reiki session with his hands moving over the chakras of the body, aiding in rejuvenating them with sufficient energy. He often makes use of reiki symbols in reiki therapy and massage. In fact, people suffering from chronic ailments like cancer, autoimmune diseases and multiple sclerosis take the aid of these therapy sessions to alleviate the pain. Mental concerns, addiction to drugs, anxiety, panic attacks and destructive habits (like smoking and abusing alcohol) can be treated effectively with reiki healing touch therapy.

Before a person learns about reiki or is keen on attending a reiki therapy session, he is required to know about the chakras. So what are these chakras after all? Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheels”. A wheel which we identify physically is what spins around its fixed axis, slow or fast. But there are similar wheels found in our body too (not physically but as energies). Our body contains 7 major chakras and each one is closely associated with an organ of our body. Below listed are the 7 major chakras.

*Please note:

  • Crown chakra is the most powerful chakra and is not much disturbed even in course of curing ailments, pertaining to any side effects.
  • Reiki treatment should be done only by a reiki practitioner and that is the best and the only way. The reiki healing hands of your teacher will initiate the therapy for you.

Now you know how the reiki healing energy helps in stimulating the chakras as each chakra associates with various organs of our body. There are many audio CDs on reiki healing music available in the market. Reiki music serves as an excellent means of inducing sleep. After all, a peaceful sleep plays a major role in enhancing immune system. Deuter’s Reiki Hands of light is an excellent musical CD which contains soothing musical notes that will aid in complete relaxation of the mind and the body. I am suggesting this musical from my personal experience and it has absolutely worked for me.

Reiki is a huge subject and every aspect of reiki cannot be covered in a single day. So wait for more, readers! Will be back with more interesting facts and finds on this subject, in my next article!

Cleanse and Heal Energy at Illuminations

Dubai (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

Dubai-based holistic well-being center, Illuminationsoffers various methods of treating disruptions in the energy body – energy healing and cleansing – through different types of classes.

Energy healing works on the principle that everything is made of energy. The levels of energy operated from directly correspond with the way people think and feel. Therefore, this energy influences and governs the functioning of the inner and outer self.

At the core of all matter lies energy, and the human body is no different. The energy body is a template for the physical body and therefore any change in the energy body directly affects the physical body.

Through healing and balancing these energies, one is able to experience a sense of spiritual cleansing where miraculous results are experienced on the mental, emotional and even physical levels.

Healing and cleansing can be done on a regular basis through any of these classes at Illuminations:

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is made up of two Japanese words – Rei which means ‘ spiritually guided ’ and Ki which means ‘life force energy’. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field and allows the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Aura Cleansing

The Aura is the energy field that surrounds the physical body, and can unravel a lot about the mind-body-energy state of a person. Clearing the aura shields people from negative influences of any kind, which everyone may be susceptible to.

Chakra Balancing and Alignment

Chakras are energy vortexes located throughout the body, which regulate the flow of energy through the system. The functioning of the chakras, reflect how one chooses to respond to conditions in their life. When the chakras our balanced, they spin beautifully in a clockwise motion, which in turn clears the auras.

Crystal Healing

Crystal Healing is a form of healing that uses crystals or gemstones, which are placed around different areas around the body to direct energy flow towards the affected area to heal and restore balance. They help in releasing and clearing negative energy, thereby assisting in energy healing. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. If an individual that has a particular issue that is recurring, crystals can even be worn on the body in various forms, or placed in an area in which an individual spends a large amount of time such as the bedroom or workplace.

Rebirthing

Human breathing is almost universally inadequate; virtually all people are suppressing large amounts of mental, emotional and physical tension. The practice of Rebirthing through breath work allows the detoxification of the body and the release of the suppressed tension. It is also used to recall aspects of the birth process, and through conscious, connected breath, release any emotions that accompanied the experience.

Quantum Reiki

Quantum Healing is reprogramming the subconscious with the blueprint of a healthy body through imagery and feeling, supporting the cellular rejuvenation at the basic energetic level. Reiki healing whilst the client is in hypnotic trance improves the flow of energy as the client is more receptive to the healing energy, it's as adding a pull to the process, when combined with Quantum Healing the Reiki provides the energy to support the cellular rejuvenation.

The center was founded by Soniyaa Kiran Punjabi, with the intent of inspiring individuals towards a journey of self-discovery as a key to lasting happiness. The center offers a variety of services based on a holistic approach to self-development with the intention to provide a deeper insight into the mind-body-energy connection influencing the experience of life.

The Truth About the Elephant – What Is Energy Healing?

My teacher, Deborah Kerbow, once looked at our class and said something to the effect of, “I won’t lie, I’m a little jealous of you guys. When I started doing healing work in the 70’s I had to be careful who I told. Some people were cruel. But you guys can basically tell anybody! Even if they don’t get it at least they won’t spit on you!”

Thankfully, she’s right. We live in a unique time when spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle did a weeklong series of interviews on Oprah and tough talking medical intuitive Carolyn Myss has had multiple bestselling books. As an energy worker the Google ad bar alongside my inbox is a solid list of people advertising different forms of energy work. But are they really all that different? And what are they all doing? What is energy healing?

I’m not supposed to say this, but the truth is I don’t do anything in energy work that you don’t do in your daily life. You hug someone you love (probably not enough) and are transformed by your embrace, you connect with people over great distances via phone and email, you have access to vast amounts of information through the internet and you experience the ‘vibe’ of places you go. At times you may know who’s calling on the phone before you pick it up, you’ve had intuitive and coincidental experiences you can’t explain, you’ve had good days where everything seems to line up right, you know how someone’s feeling when they walk in the house, you’ve prayed or ‘sent’ well-wishes to someone in need and more. These and dozens of other examples are energetic connections at work every day. They’re normal enough that most people know what I’m talking about, yet odd enough that we recognize something special is at work.

I’ve made it my life’s work to notice and think about these things. When I hear about doctors having insightful dreams about patients something in me perks up. When I was studying psychology in college I saw how strong the placebo effect was compared to psychoactive medications and realized there’s a lot more going on here than meets the eye. When I hear stories of cancer that spontaneously disappears before surgery I take notes. Two of my teachers were involved in exactly this kind of incident.

More than a decade ago I was getting ready to enroll at Wakepoint School for Energy Healing in Colorado. I had already had a life changing experience at the hands of a healer, Talia and was pouring over Barbara Brennan’s groundbreaking work, Hands of Light. My father, ever the open-minded skeptic, took me to a heavy-hitting policy conference at The American Academy for the Advancement of Science in Washington, DC. Hoping, I think, to talk some sense into me we attended a panel discussion on Alternative and Complementary medicines. Each panelist in turn had a chance to present their perspective and by the end all of them, had basically agreed: there is a raft of documented cases of healings, cures and spontaneous remissions that are quite simply impossible according to the Western medical worldview. ‘Alternative’ practices have something that western medicine is missing and should be brought to the fore and studied. The only naysayer respectfully suggested we not do anything too rash. My father summed it with the comment, “Well, they thought Galileo was crazy.”

Energy healing at its simplest is akin to passive meditation. This is very much the state of mind I go into during an energy session. In a similar way, those of you familiar with Thai massage know it is sometimes compared to passive yoga. The therapist moves around the recipient and physically stretches their body to release their stored tensions. At energy work’s most basic level I connect to the energy in your field and allow you to get a recharge through me. Most clients experience this as their mind and body relaxing. They begin to notice more of their inner world and their thoughts have a chance to process themselves more fluidly.

Visually sensitive people see colors, physically sensitive people feel warm or electric sensations, others may hear music and some will have ‘a ha’ moments or flashes of insight. If this is how your session is going I’ll work my way through a series of charge points on your body and you’ll leave feeling relaxed, energized, recentered and grounded, or perhaps lighter on your feet and more peaceful. Each session is very individual, but you will get exactly what YOU need.

Many clients have specific issues they’re dealing with and know from experience that energy work is an effective way to address them. Others aren’t having much luck with other treatments and are willing to try something new. In this case our work goes deeper. Places that need extra attention show up as unusual heat or cold under my hands, discomfort in your body, troubled thoughts or painful emotions rising almost out of nowhere. I follow my intuition and we’ll both follow your internal process. We’ll take extra time and directly focus energy at these places and help them release. Releases are often accompanied by sighs, deep exhales, or tears.

If you’ve been through something traumatic at any point in your life and you’ve been storing unprocessed pain there may be anger, fear or rage that still needs to be felt and we’ll give you the time to feel it. It’s miraculous what you may be carrying around. There are many different healing styles out there but few are trained to work with energies in this way. I feel lucky to be able to offer you this chance through energy work.

Often we don’t realize that difficulties in our sleep, health, work, finances or relationships today stem directly from past experiences. This just isn’t how we’re programmed to think, but this is exactly how we are. If the hidden trauma is significant you will eventually experience a more significant emotional or nervous breakdown, an acute illness or even an accident or injury. This is all to give you another opportunity to process the pain. Many of my clients are seeking relief from emotional and physical abuse from family members, rape and sexual abuse, old or recent injuries and surgeries, ongoing or acute illnesses, unfinished business in finished relationships and even traumatic birth experiences. Like seeing a counselor it can be wonderful to just get things out in the open in a session, but unlike a counselor, energy work can help to clear damage and restore your energies to health. This sometimes takes multiple sessions over a period of time. Other times I recommend that clients continue to see a therapist or get regular bodywork to help the process.

I get more questions about distance (or remote) energy healing than anything else I do. Believe me, early on it took me a couple of sessions to really feel confident, but I have no doubts anymore. I use your full name, the sound of your voice (not always necessary) and a picture of you to get connected, the same as when you talk to a friend or loved one on the phone. Then it’s all about the energy. I look at it like this: only the physical body is in 3-dimensions, subject to the limitations of distance and time. Physicists point out that on the subatomic level even matter is continually popping in and out of existence. Have you seen the movie “What the *Bleep* Do We Know?” It was made right here in Portland, OR and it has some great explanations. Healing energy – much of the energy in our daily experiences, in fact – comes from outside our little 3-dimensional bubble. Near or far, there you are.

There’s another thing I’m not supposed to say in an article where I should be blowing my own horn: All health and healing professions are working on the same elephant. It’s from an old story I run into a lot, it goes something like this: five blind monks are gathered around an elephant. Each touches the enormous beast with his hands and arrives at a different conclusion. “It’s like a snake,” proclaims the one at its trunk. “No, it’s like a tree trunk,” observes the one at its leg. “Nonsense, it’s like a sheet of paper,” argues the one by an ear. “Amazing, it’s like a wall!” shouts the one at the elephant’s side. “You’re all wrong,” concludes the monk at the animal’s rear, “an elephant is like a rope.” Human health is exactly the same thing. All roads lead to Rome and everyone must follow their own path.

I grew up in a house saturated with theoretical physics, abstract mathematics, music and therapeutic psychology, so my career as a musician and an energy worker was almost unavoidable. Believe me, I tried! In some ways my full-time music career, though successful, was an attempt to make use of my skills and sensitivities in a more ‘normal’ way. Meanwhile my appetite for understanding persisted. Over the past twenty years I have studied or received more than two dozen different treatment and therapeutic styles that improve people’s health including eastern and western medicines, homeopathy, naturopathy, physical therapy, chiropractic, art therapy, talk therapy, Reiki and much more. Each new experience solidifies my conviction that we are all walking around the same elephant.

So where does energy work fit in to all this? Energy healing is at the extreme fringe, and rightfully so. By my own admission, what I have experienced in my training and what happens with clients on a daily basis borders on unbelievable. If there’s one thing I know it’s this: energy work can change your energy, change your health and change your life.

Ultimately your healing is in your hands. Your life is guiding you through circumstances and choices to learn, heal, give, receive and grow. Every setback is an opportunity, every wound is a gift. Things are working in your favor just like reading these words at exactly this time. I believe it because I know it’s true.

Healing Stones and Crystals – Crystal Healing – iBuzzle

Want to know more about healing with crystals and gemstones? Read on…

Gemstones and crystals have had a long association with mankind. For centuries, man has used crystals and gemstones to create happiness and healing within his life. These crystals and gemstones are formed under the earth’s surface and contain many minerals. They give out healing energy to the wearer. These crystals are said to synthesize the energy of the sun into healing energy.

There are a variety of healing gemstones and crystals available in the market. All of these stones possess qualities which can be desired by any or all of us. So which gemstone or crystal is just right for us? The answer is not so simple. Go with what you feel. Hold the stone in your hand and let go of all emotions. Probably only one or two emotions will refuse to go away. For you, the stone will represent those emotions. If that is a happy emotion, go with it. Otherwise the stone is not for you. Alternatively, you can also consult an astrologist or a gem therapist to suggest suitable crystals and gemstones for you.

These crystals and gemstones contain many healing properties. They are made out of minerals which have come together under the surface of the earth. This gives them their unique colors and qualities. There are several methods of using the crystals for healing purposes. Some of them are outlined below.

One of the most common methods of using healing crystals is by placing them on the affected parts of the body. These can be your seven chakras, or just a particular body part. The therapist will use stones that are suited for your body type, and depending on the chakras that are needed to be activated or unblocked.

Another very common method is wearing the crystal. If long term healing or benefit is desired from a particular crystal, then most people prefer to wear the gemstone in a pendant or in a ring.

Another method of healing with crystals is making elixirs from them. This is a fairly simple procedure where you place your chosen crystal in glass bowl of pure spring water and leave it in the sunlight for 12 hours. This water can then be bottled (preferably in a dark glass bottle with an air tight stopper) and can be used for a week. If you want to use the water for a longer time period, you can add 50 percent brandy into it. This elixir can be drunk or added to your bath or used as a spray. However, please study the minerals in a particular crystal before drinking its elixir. Some gemstones and crystals might not be suitable for making elixirs. Either the crystal might be water-soluble or poisonous.

A useful method of healing with crystals is putting the crystal in your bath water. You can also add to the healing environment by burning incense or scented candles and bathe in this relaxing environment. This can be quite a rejuvenating experience.

It has been mentioned before that all crystals have healing properties. You have to find one that suits you the best. You can do that by keeping the crystal with you for a few days and observing the effect. If it does nothing for you, you can ignore it. If it creates a bad feeling, discard it. If you feel good with it, and you notice benefits, then hang on to it.

Cleansing the crystals is also equally important. You can place them in the sunlight or the moonlight for 12 hours after washing them thoroughly under running water. Take care, that water soluble crystals will dissolve by frequent washing.

Here is a list of a few healing properties of crystals and gemstones :

  • Amber: Draws off negative energy, cleanses the aura.
  • Amethyst: Heals and protects the aura, draws divine energy, treatment for acne and arthritis.
  • Tourmaline: Provides a psychic shield, releases toxins.
  • Labradorite: Prevents energy leakage, aligns with spiritual purpose.
  • Quartz: Cleans, protects and increases aura.
  • Smoky Quartz: Grounds energy, dissolves negative patterns in aura.
  • Flourite: Anti-Viral, Dissolves blockages.
  • Moss Agate: Treats fungal infections.
  • Citrine: Clears mental confusion, improves concentration.
  • Carnelian: Re-energizes.
  • Chrysocolla: Releases unresolved grief.
  • Aquamarine: Clams stressed or overactive mind.
  • Yellow Sapphire: Creates abundance.
  • Turquoise: Harnesses creative energies.
  • Rose Quartz: Attracts loving energies.

A story among gemstone fanatics is that when a stone has done its ‘thing’ for you, it will find a way to leave you. So if you find yourself losing a stone at some point, remember, that it has done its job and has moved on. If you persist in getting a replacement stone, then it too will move on. I can say this is true with personal experience.

A gemstone is, thus, a gift of Mother Nature which gives you a lot of energies that are loving and healing and help create an aura of happiness and prosperity.
