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!

The Healing Power of Therapeutic Writing and Poetry

Writing is therapeutic! In fact, James Pennebaker, PhD., a psychologist and researcher, has conducted studies that show enhancement in immune system functioning and emotional wellbeing when research participants write about difficult or traumatic events in their lives.

You may have questions about what type of writing would be most helpful for you and how to get started. Would it be journaling, writing poetry, free-writing, meditation and writing, morning pages (see The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron), etc. Then there is the question of what to do with your writing—keep it to yourself, start a blog, try to get it published, show it to friends, put it in a drawer, rip it up when you are frustrated, or join a group?

Your needs, interests, inclinations, and tastes are pivotal. For instance, you notice one day, that you have been writing poetry on the margins of scrap paper that you find in your pockets when doing the laundry, or someone gives you a classy blank journal book for your birthday. Then there could be alchemy and synchronicity—you see an event or group that “speaks” to you and is even happening on an evening or day you can make it. You venture into the visual attic, basement, or garage of your present or past and discover there is a pen and paper waiting for you there inviting you to write.

My own experience helping people use writing for healing tells me that it works best when there is no initial concern about editing or showing your creation to the world in print. In fact, the first step is to free up the censors, critics, and mind chatter so that the words you need to speak onto the page can get there. I think of therapeutic writing as raw and fresh. Crafting and editing can be an important, but different part of the process. Sometimes creation bubbles up in a perfectly formed finished product, but if not, what is initially created is the mortar and bricks of healing because it is your authentic and freed-up voice, which sometimes delivers a gift, a surprise, a glimpse of something important.

Turning to poetry, poetry gives rhythm to silence, light to darkness. In poetry we find the magic of metaphor, compactness of expression, use of the five senses, and simplicity or complexity of meaning in a few lines. For example, here’s a poetic description of day breaking: As the sun begins with a bowing/ down and a floating up,/ light, a ballerina, pli

Reiki Massage Therapy

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; but spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Similar techniques of reiki have been tried and tested, but the true practice of this was made universal in the year 1922 and was developed by Mikao Usui, who when on a Buddhist training course held on Mount Kurama, performed what is called ‘isyu guo‘. It is a 21 day training and involves chanting, meditation, prayer and of course fasting.

He was able to use his body as a medium, specifically his crown chakra, to use the power of his mind both intellectually and spiritually to influence those around him. He coined this ability as reiki, and made it known in April 1922 where he instituted a society called Usui Reiki Ryōhō Gakkai, that translates into ‘Usui’s Spiritual Energy Therapy Method Society’.

Starting this society gave him a larger audience to channel his work through, using the reiki method to heal the masses. It is a slightly complex teaching that can only be passed down from a reiki practitioner to an apprentice, where practitioners can somehow pull in a force from the universe, saturate that energy and then use it for patients to alter their state of health and living.

It is a way of removing bad energy vibes from within a person, whilst replacing it with what is good, in order to help one heal over a period of time. A reiki massage (although not literally a hands-on massage) therapy involves pretty much the same concept, with many benefits that patients and people who want to try this method, receive.

Why Should One Seek Reiki Massage Therapy?

The purpose and results of reiki are plentiful, with practitioners passing along the message that the following can be changed or cured over a stipulated amount of time, although gradual. When it comes to reiki healing touch methods, the following conditions and problems can be solved with therapy.

How is a Reiki Massage Performed?

When a reiki master starts off with a session, it involves first holding out one’s hands over the receiver’s body, and in some cases being in contact with the body, in order to send forth what will act upon them during the healing process.

I remember when one of these reiki masters, or an apprentice for the same, tried this out on my mom, and it involved the same process of course. The thing is that reiki probably needs one to be subjected to its effects over a period of time, and not over a short span to have to bare witness to results. In some reiki therapies, the placement of one’s hands differ, in that, it is either placed on certain points of the body to start with the healing treatment, or involves one’s hands hovering above the body and finding that perfect spot to have his/her hands concentrate their effects on.

This way one finds the area that is responsible for causing the imbalance, making the practitioner locate it, using his/her intuition. When the healing therapy begins, some people feel certain sensations that come through during the treatment. Some describe it as feelings of comfort, or extreme warmth. Some feel energy waves that radiate from the practitioner him/herself. It’s been used for many years as a way of channeling one’s inner energies to another and making it shift what is unbalanced in the other.

Reiki can be used once it is mastered, on not just people but on plants and animals as well. Once a person is trained to be a reiki master-teacher, he/she can use his means to treat anyone and anything during his/her time. People can take special classes to help themselves use their energies in a way that can help others who don’t strike a balance with their own. It all starts off with understanding the seven vital chakras of the body, and working one’s way through each to find out how to deal with each point’s complexities. A reiki master can impart his healing not just in person, but over distances as well; here’s how.

Distance Healing

Communicating from afar with the person that sits in another place, the practitioner tells him/her to sit in an environment that embodies peace and tranquility either in their home, or someplace outdoors. He/she then transfers their healing energies to them.

Contact Healing

One is asked to lie down, where a reiki massage is then performed, wherein there is no bodily contact, and the person is fully clothed. The surrounding area is turned into one of relaxation, using candles and calming music, making those who come for the massage, relax while giving way for the energy to shift and alter, thus changing it for his/her own good. The practitioner then gently places his/her hands on different points of the body, to help transfer their healing energies.

A reiki session would do people good, if they come with an open mind and the will to want to heal and get better. It doesn’t have to be used only for the sick, but for those who led chaotic and unhealthy lives, seeking peace and oneness among all things. Those considering this should go to known and trusted reiki practitioners. It is a painless method and all are invited to come and cleanse themselves from disturbing outside elements.

Understanding The Reiki Energy And Crystal Gazing Ability

Reiki energy healing is an ethereal science. Surrounded by holistic treatments, it is one of the best ever growing techniques. Ever since the beginning of man, this healing technique has been well thought-out sacred and was used as a serious method of healing from illness.

Chakra 1 – red chakra or root. It is found in the adrenal glands and is associated with survival instincts.

Chakra 2 – orange chakra or sacral. It is found in the testes or ovaries and is associated with sexuality.

Chakra 3 – yellow chakra or solar plexus. It is found in the pancreas and is associated with digestion.

Chakra 4 – green chakra or heart. It is in the thymus and is associated with the immune system.

Chakra 7 – white chakra or the crown. It is found in the pineal gland and is associated with body rhythm.

According to the experts some psychic reading and psychic advice include that Reiki energy healing and physical rehabilitation are somewhat can cure illness without using surgery and medical treatment. However they also said that this is not certainly if it

Public urged to use Thai herbs, vegetables

BANGKOK, 20 Oct 2013 (NNT) – The Ministry of Public Health has encouraged people to look after themselves and boost their immune system by using Thai herbal medicines and local vegetables.

Dr Thawatchai Kamoltham, the Director-General of the Department for Development of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine, said on Sunday that the weather was changing from the rainy season to the winter, which was the time when people usually came up with cold, coughing, pneumonia or diarrhea.

He said the public should turn to Thai traditional medicine because it can help balance a person’s body with the changing environment. For example, medicines that have a sour taste can clear phlegm out of the body, bitter medicines can improve one’s appetite and treat sleep disorders, and spicy medicines can help improve blood circulation and induce the expulsion of gas from the stomach or intestines.

He said people should consume fresh-cooked meals that have sour, slightly bitter or sour taste, such as different types of tomyum, or hot and sour soup.
