Eight captivating reasons why you should harness the power of Reiki and have a treatment.

It appears that Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only can you move toward your own unique balance in body, mind and spirit.

How does Reiki relate to other integrative therapies?

The National Centre for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) describes Reiki as a complementary and alternative medicine practice that uses putative (yet to be measured) energy fields, or biofields, to affect health. Energy biofield therapies “generally reflect the concept that human beings are infused with subtle forms of energy,” which are believe to surround and interpenetrate human form. Energy therapies, such as therapeutic touch and Healing Touch, are believed to balance these subtle energy fields.

As promised, here are Eight benefits of Reiki

Number One, Reduces Depression And Anxiety: Studies have shown that Reiki can help to reduce depression and anxiety by changing your mood. Reiki has been shown to help those in a negative mood, change and feel more positive through receiving the life force energy and dissolving any energetic blockages. Once your mood improves, your stress levels can reduce as well as any anxiety you might have. This, in turn, will help accelerate your manifestation journey.

Number Two, Reiki Helps You Regain Focus: Through Reiki, you allow the universe’s energy to flow through you, as more of it flows through your body, mind, and soul, it clears out a lot of clutter. Reiki puts your chakras–the centre of spiritual power in the human body–in balance. When your chakras are balanced, you will begin to feel like you have gained a new perspective on life. Everything will appear clearer – your life, your adversities, your career path, everything. This shift helps you regain focus in your life. When you truly understand the importance of different aspects of your life, you can prioritize them better. Proper prioritization helps you get things done. Once you get into this cycle of clarity, it will sustain itself.

Number Three, Reiki may help to promote balance and harmony: Reiki healing works directly on restoring balance at all levels and can work directly on the issue rather than masking or relieving symptoms. It is an affective non-invasive energy healing modality that enhances the body’s natural healing ability whilst energising and promoting overall wellness.

Number Four, Reiki can enhance your overall well-being: Research is in a small 2016 study found that Reiki was helpful in improving the quality of life for women with cancer. Women who had Reiki showed improvements in depression levels, improve sleep patterns, self-confidence, sense of calm, relaxation and inner peace.

Number Five, Reiki can also help you heal emotionally: I have had great success in my clinic with clients and have used it to help people with their energy bringing them spiritual growth. I have also found Reiki to clean people’s emotions and strengthen their relationships enhancing their capability to love which therefore enables them to deeply connect with others.

Number Six, Reiki may help you to reconnect with your heart and your higher self: It can help clear negative energy and to help you reconnect with your true centre, which can help you bring about awareness of any negative patterns that you may be holding onto and letting them take over.

Number Seven, Reiki offers relief during emotional distress and sorrow: Reiki can help in the grieving process, by cleaning and clearing the emotions, preventing them from being so draining and offers them perspective. I have also had great success with grief with clients that might not have been dealt with at the time and can cause emotional blocks or patterns in someone’s life.

Number Eight, On a physical level Reiki may help to relieve pain: From migraine, sciatica, arthritis, it may also help with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, insomnia, menopausal symptoms. It may also help to speed up recovery from surgery or long-term illness.

Emotional freedom technique is a form of counselling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, energy medicine, thought field, Acupuncture.

How does EFT tapping work?

It has similarities to Acupuncture, EFT focuses on the meridian points or energy hotspots to restore balance to your bodies energy. EFT tapping uses fingertips Tapping to apply pressure. EFT tapping may help you to access your bodies energy and send signals to the parts of the brain that control stress.

What are the pressure points for tapping?

There are the eight main tapping points and one points on your hand known as the karate chop point on the heel or side of your hand. The other eight points are, your eyebrow, side of your eye, under your eye, under your nose, your chin, your collarbone, under your arm and on top of your head.

It is based on Chinese medicine; Meridian points are thought of as areas of the energy bodies flows through. These pathways help balance energy flow to maintain your health because any imbalance can influence disease or sickness.

EFT Tapping in Five Steps:

Identifying the issue

Firstly, we identified the issue in order for this technique to be affective, this will be the focal point why are you are tapping, focusing one problem at a time to enhance your outcome.

Testing the initial intensity:

After the problem area is identified a benchmark level of intensity is set. The intensity level is rated on a scale from 0 to 10 with 10 being the most difficult or intense. The scale assesses the emotional or physical pain and discomfort someone might feel from the issue. Also by stab leash in a benchmark it helps to monitor the progress after performing a complete EEFT sequence. If your initial intensity was 10 prior to tapping and ended it for you have accomplished a good improvement level, however it is my aim when I’m in clinic with my clients to get them at a 0 or 1.

The setup phrase:

When I’m with a client prior to tapping we always need to establish a phrase that explains what they are trying to address it needs to focus on two main goals, acknowledging the issues and excepting oneself despite the problem. A common set up phrase is’ even though I have this……. Fear or problem, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

what's your story written on a chalk board

EFT tapping sequence:

There are 12 major meridians that mirror each side of the body and correspond to an internal organ EEFT or emotional freedom technique usually focuses on these nine.

  • Small intestine Meridian- karate chop point
  • Governing vessel-top of the head
  • Bladder meridian-eyebrow point
  • Go bladder meridian – Side of the eye
  • Stomach Meridian – under the eye
  • Governing vessel – under the nose
  • Central vessel – on the chin point
  • Kidney meridian – beginning of the collarbone
  • Spleen Meridian – under the arm

The wording is in essential part of the process because it tells our system what we are working on. Negative emotions will come out because we are tuned into certain thoughts or circumstances which in turn cause our energy systems to disrupt. Once tuned into the issue the tapping stimulates the energies pathways there by balancing the resulting energy disruptions.

Finally, we test the final intensity:

At the end of the sequence I usually get my clients to rate the intensity from 0 to 10 comparing their results with their initial intensity level and if they haven’t reach zero we keep repeating the process.

Are You Controlled by Your Emotions? 7 Signs That Say You Are

Do you control your emotions or do your emotions control you? Everyone likes to think they have control over their emotions, but there are plenty of common signs that show that it’s quite rare for someone to have mastered their emotions.

Our emotions lead our behavior. You just might discover that you have less mastery over yourself than you thought.

How much control do you really have?

yellow emotional ball faces
Consider these signs that indicate your emotions control you:

Number 1: You procrastinate. What is procrastination? It’s the inability to get yourself to do something you know you should be doing. Eventually you’ll do it, but not at the best time.

Why does this happen? It happens because you don’t feel like doing it, so you find a way to squirm out of it, at least in the short term.

Number 2: You lose your temper easily. Do small things make you see red? Do you lose your temper every day?

When you lose your temper, you lose the ability to think and reason like a rational human being. If you had control over your emotions, could you lose your temper?

Number 3: You do what is easy or enjoyable, instead of what is needed. At any moment, there’s what you should be doing and what you want to do. Rarely are they the same thing.

So, which do you do? Do you show discipline and do what is important? Or do you give in to the urge to do something else?

This is the biggest obstacle to success. We all know what needs to be done, but we can’t get ourselves to do it often enough to enjoy lasting success.

Number 4: You repeat your mistakes. One way of knowing that you’re driven by your emotions is an inability to change your behaviour. Repeating mistakes demonstrates that your intellect is being overridden by your emotions.

If your powers of reasoning were in charge, you wouldn’t repeat your mistakes.

Number 5: You fail to consider the consequences of your actions. When your emotions are calling the shots, any consideration of consequences goes right out the window.

OMG red angry face
Are you wondering how differently you could have acted?

If you allow your emotions to be in control, your tendency will be to make yourself feel better now without concern for the future.

Number 6: You frequently regret the things you say and do. How often do you say something that you wish you could take back later? Impulsive actions and outbursts show that your emotions have control over your decision-making process.

Number 7: Your actions are influenced by your mood. Do you make the same decisions regardless of your emotions? Good for you. Those that are controlled by their emotions make different decisions depending on how they feel that day.

How much control do you have? Do your emotions drive your thoughts and behavior? It’s not easy to learn how to override our emotions and allow rational thinking to prevail.

We’re all masters at justifying what we desire. Make an effort to think before acting or speaking. Ask yourself what the smart decisions is, and then do everything you can to follow that course of action.

What is Reiki and How can it Heighten Your Self-Development?

An integral aspect of the human experience is striving to develop and improve yourself however you can. Although you may have heard of Reiki, you might not realise how you can raise your own level of development upon undergoing Reiki treatments.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient art of healing first practiced in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. The practice eventually spread to the western world and morphed into what is known as “Western Reiki” techniques.

Here are some informative facts about Reiki:

Number One: Western Reiki includes 5-7 hand positions used by Reiki practitioners. These hand positions are used to affect the recipient’s “chakras” or “meridians,” locations of theoretical sacred energy reserves found throughout the body’s surface.

Number Two: The practitioner poses his hands in the hand positions near where the body’s energies are regulated to promote wellness and healing.

Number Three: The Reiki practitioner might place his hands lightly on the body at the chakra points. He might look at the chakra point or even gently massage the chakra location in hopes of transferring energy to the recipient. Light tapping near the meridians or the practitioner blowing out air from the mouth might also be part of a Reiki treatment.

Number Four: Some Reiki practitioners do not touch the recipient. Instead, they place their hands a few centimetres above the body’s surface to re-position the chakras’ energy.

Number Five: The Reiki practitioner believes he is providing energy called, “ki,” through his palms. This is to balance the receiver’s body energies.

Number Six: Although Reiki is an ancient practice, it isn’t supported by science. Research on Reiki has consistently come up with no real evidence of the “life force,” or ki, or how it can impact the individual, positively or otherwise.

How Does Reiki Heighten Self-Development?

Because Reiki isn’t scientifically proven, you might be wondering how it could actually help you in your quest for deepened self-development.

Consider these points:

Number One: Undergoing Reiki allows you to relax. During Reiki you’re laying down quietly, usually on a masseuse’s table. You’ll likely be relaxed throughout the process, lessening stress.

Number Two: Taking part in Reiki is a unique experience. There are few other experiences that are similar to having Reiki done. In a sense, it will expand your mind to take part in Reiki-it’s a new and different experience. Reiki might even peak your interest in the healing arts.

Number Three: Suggestion is powerful. When Reiki practitioners deliver their treatment methods, they’ll likely make certain suggestions about balancing your chakras and meridians. Because you’ll be so relaxed at the time, it’s possible that you’ll take in the suggestions and do what’s necessary to feel better. You might become more open to acting on helpful suggestions.

Number Four: Taking part in Reiki can increase your feelings of well-being. Although the effects of Reiki haven’t been proven, when you do anything to feel better, it can be helpful because you’re giving attention to the troubling issue. In this case, undergoing Reiki may be a means to an end.

Number Five: Reiki is a fascinating healing art that could peak your interest and heighten your self-improvement. There are times in life when it’s refreshing to try something new, different, and a bit unusual. You’ll relax, have a unique experience, and increase your well-being.
