Reiki is Energy Medicine

Energy medicine is finally getting the attention that it deserves as a powerful catalyst for healing. Energy medicine includes any modality that helps someone to connect to and expand their subtle energy body. Energy medicine can be Reiki, Aura Healing, Healing Touch, Pranic Healing, Quantum Healing, the Reconnect, and Acupressure or Acupuncture. There is also Sound Therapy that helps to expand the energy body. Because so many people are raised believing all that they are is flesh and bones, they restrict their energy to fit inside that boundary. In reality we a huge energy beings that expand outside of the physical body several feet in every direction.

Our lifestyles are also so incredibly hectic causing our energy to cycle back on itself creating stress, inflammation, and anxiety loops. Many people live inside a box and rarely spend time outside. You can see the emphasis on larger and larger houses rather than larger yards. This disconnect with the frequency of the Earth and plants leads to eczema, allergies, auto-immune disorders, and more over time. We have forgotten how to ground release energy by connecting to the Earth.

Most people do not ever connect their energy body fully into their physical body except for during dancing, singing, or orgasm. It’s important to feel safe in one’s body most of the time rather than just a few minutes of the day. With guidance everyone can learn how to breathe and exhale releasing stress and tension from their physical bodies down into the Earth. This release allows their natural healing life energy to flow powerfully through their whole being once again. This is where energy medicine will empower everyone to heal and be healthy.

With a little practice before sessions and after sessions, I teach my clients to connect into their body and ground into the Earth, centering themselves with their awareness. Many highly sensitive people (HSP) or empaths are constantly focused on others feelings which causes them to ignore their own body. Once an HSP/empath learns to focus on their own body, they learn how to release stress, tension, and heal by staying fully present in their own body. This is how to release other people’s stuff.

Through practice, my clients gain the ability to reclaim their power with a quick exhale and release of feelings that they are holding. With this practice, healthy boundaries return. By paying more attention to feelings and breathing them out, each person can feel fully present, safe, and strong in their bodies. The energy shifts and becomes stronger as one learns how to check inside and trust ourself before agreeing to do something. This centering allows for better expression also. This is self love and is super powerful. A beautiful energy flow and large, balanced energy field is a result.

Holding emotions in is fairly common. Due to judging these emotions on some level as bad or painful, they are stored in the physical body typically in the spleen, pancreas, or liver. This leads to poor digestion and tight muscles in the surrounding area. This causes a buildup of lactic acid, carbon monoxide and other cellular waste that leads to pain and inflammation. How do we learn to stop holding?

First we need a reclassification of emotions from “bad or “painful” to the most basic of sensations, ex- exciting, calming, comfortable, or uncomfortable, then we are able to release judgement and observe our emotional reactions to situations and let them flow out. With Reiki, acupressure, Quantum Healing, biofield tuning, and other energy work modalities, we bring the focus back to the body, so clients feel a deep release. This release and flow of emotions is super healthy and is almost like a remembering of how we all naturally released stress as children. Over time trauma from judgement from family led to an unhealthy holding, not knowing when someone would yell or be angry. with the energy reset and reconnect, a grounding connection is reformed and the hard stress flows out of the body and energy field. This allows a body to function at a most efficient, flexible, and healing way.

Reiki For Healing

Above all else, being kind is the best expression of love. Healing requires an abundance of love and compassion The more I teach Reiki classes, the more I feel it to my core. Reiki Principles are a simple and clear guide to love.

Just for today, do not anger. The energy of anger is powerful and spins fast like a fan. Unfortunately, when that fan is spinning we have no control and everyone in its path gets hurt. The key is to recognize anger and pause, pull the cord to the power source and go for a walk. Allow the fan to slow down and look at what hurt feelings powered it up in the first place. Tend to the hurt feelings with kindness. Love the opportunity to care for the hurt and heal this old wound.
Gratitude fills me with the opportunity to heal this in the moment to moment. I spent years running around trying to have a house clean enough, my business organized enough, my social media posts seen enough to grow my business. When I sat a listened to what was hurting, I found it was my spirit. It was time for me to be sure to play and do things I enjoyed. It was time to put me first. I had all my responsibilities handled and now it was time to focus on having fun.
Just for today, do not worry. Worrying takes you out of the present. The key to healthy living is staying in one’s body and mind in the minute to minute. I knew this intellectually, but it took me a long time to walk in the present moment. The more I learned to focus on inhabiting my body and treating it with kindness and care, in how I sat, stood, and held myself, the more present I became. I started to recognize how out of alignment I was when I worried, my hips tilted forward and then my whole spine and neck was out of whack. The importance of releasing worry to release my body was never more clear.

Just for for today, work honestly. This one is so important to unravel. I try hard to be honest to everyone, but what I realized is I wasn’t being honest to myself. Some days I didn’t want to be super helpful, creative, resourceful, and persistent. Some days I just wanted to rest. And once I realized how to recognize this, I realized this was me learning to be honest with myself. No one is perfect, and some days I get to lie low and be restful work slowly, to allow kindness to flow back through me. Allowing myself to process and understand my feelings was powerful. Giving myself space to not work at maximum efficiency gave me room to allow others to do the same.
Be grateful for your many blessings. Taking time every day to go through things for which I can be grateful helps me to start off on the right foot. This practice helps to switch gears and be thankful. Gratitude is essential for healing resentment. I needed this as I learned how to be kind to myself. Resentments were melting away and this focus on gratitude helped me to push that old dialogue and pattern out of the way.
Be kind to all living things. We loop back around to the most important thing. By being kind to another, that gives them permission to soften the heart and unwind their own inner dialogue. Being kind to myself, is equally important because it gives other permission to do the same. By being kind to myself, I have room in my heart, mind, and body, to extend grace to others. These principles are such an important key to healthy living. Reiki practice keeps me unwinding and unlinking, to be a better channel of unconditional love.
