Energy Healers – What Exactly Do They Do?

So what does an “Energy Healer” do? Firstly, let's look at what an Energy Healer is.

An Energy Healer is a practitioner of an ancient type of healing art. This healing art has been known about for thousands of years by many of the ancient civilizations that have lived and thrived on this planet in the past.

If we look at cultures today, especially in the East, we can see that much of this knowledge has been retained and is still very used in their healthcare systems.

The most well known cultures that utilize this form of healing is the Chinese and Indian cultures.

In later posts we shall dig dig into the science and concepts of this healing art, but essentially and energy Healer is someone who has a knowledge of and who works with the fundamental energies of the human system. These energies are the basis for the creation and functioning of all other cells and organs in the system. I say system because the human entity is more than just the physical body.

By working with these energies, an Energy Healer can help re-harmonize the patient in a range of ways by cleansing and then revitalizing these fundamental energies.

This fundamental energy is known as “life-force energy” and has been given many other names by ancient cultures such as “Chi” in China and “Prana” in India. (Again, in later posts we will get deeper into these concepts and ideas of life-force energy, the human energy system and the science behind it all). For this post because I just wanted to explain an overview of what the Energy Healer understands and works with.

As I mentioned, there are a range of ways in which Energy Healers can work with these fundamental energies of the human system and as such many different “healing modalities” have developed over time to address the diseases or “dis-eases” and disorders of the human system.

Some of the most common are:

– Acupuncture

Acupuncture works with the meridians of the energy system, which are the fine energy lines that run through the body and distribute energy to where it is needed in an orderly fashion.

– Reiki

Reiki works with the energy body as a whole to transfer revitalized energy from the healer to the patient through a range of invocations and concentration techniques.

– Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing works similar to Reiki, but has a slightly deeper understanding of the energy body, in that the energy body must first be cleaned before revitalized energy is transferred into the patient. This was developed from a range of techniques such as Medical Qi Gong and others.

These are just three of the most well known, efficient and modalities with a trace through history.

So an Energy Healer is someone who has an understanding of the energy system. A good energy healer will normally be a very kind, grateful and loving person, this is because in ancient spiritual knowledge there is such a thing called “Purification.” This is the process of removing oneself from things that do not assist the person on the path to self realization.

A healer generally works on these principals because the more “pure” you are (as in, the less congestion there is in the mind, body and energies) the greater the ability for the healer to heal the patient, as the energies transferred will be much more potent. You can imagine the flow of water through a pipe. If the pipe is clean and clear, the water flow will be uninterrupted, but if the pipe os dirty and clogged, it will be much harder for the water to flow through it. That is the idea behind purification.

Thank you for reading and I hope this has helped you understand a little better what Energy Healers do.

Therapeutic Communication With Reiki: A Case History

A young lady named Kwang attended a Naturopathy retreat in central Thailand several years ago. She reported having constipation for many years. Several numerous attempts to solve the situation, her symptoms never improved. As she received Reiki, the intuition of the healer recognized that she was suffering from some blockage related to relationships with her parents.

As she discussed her childhood, she violated several very old tears. Later, in response to her healing experience, she related that, “I can not remember when I first started to believe that people do indeed forgive. I have not realized that all this negativity inside was connected to my physical well-being. As long as forgiveness challenged me, to laxatives. The crucial transformation came when I learned Naturopathy and also received Reiki therapeutic treatment. ”

She went on to explain that, “while the healer began his reiki treatment, I told him about my problem with constipation. Surprisingly, he queried me about my life and problems with my mom. in a relaxing atmosphere; he talked with me and asked a few questions, which led me to recall those relentless problems. In this session, he was sending his energy to my stomach covering the digestive system. He also sent the Reiki energy through his palms to cover my whole body from head to toes. That day, he helped me realize that the problems I had with my mom directly related to constipation: both were awful and ceaseless, and of course, I needed to let go of them. ”

Five days afterwards, she returned to a normal life in Bangkok. She told her friends with joy, “Something miraculous happened during the course: I no longer have constipation! My bowel movements are back to normal. I am no longer under the spell of laxatives. miracle, I believe, came from a combination of adjusting my eating habits, Reiki, Chakra energy and an attempt to ease the anguish between my mom and me. Oh … the most important thing is about faith and conviction. unseen energy. Had I laughed at the Reiki healer when I saw him moving his hands I would probably remain addicted to those laxatives. between my mother and me has not been easily resolved, though. Every day I still must try to come to terms with it hoping that one day it will be unveiled. ”

Five years have passed since that healing and the constipation has never returned. The physical blockage was completely released by addressing the family issue that troubled her so deeply within her self. All of her friends and family are very pleased to see Kwang happy and healthy.

Dr. John Upleder characterizes the secret of all effective healing methods as the process of leading a patient to an honest and truthful self-discovery. Self discovery is required for the initiation and continuation of self-healing. He explains that only through self-healing, in contrast to “curing,” patients can experience both permanent recovery and spiritual growth. He goes on to say that, “the closer our perception of self approaches the truth, the deeper our capacity for self healing becomes.” His notion of healing is very relevant to the practice of Reiki, not only in terms of self healing that we emphasize in Reiki 1, but also in recognizing our responsibility and role in facilitating the true growth of our patients .

Keep in mind, when you are healing another person, in fact, you are facilitating their own self healing. The aim is to support them to accept their duty and responsibility for their own growth. Once you help them back on their feet, they can take steps on their own.

Sending Reiki by Distance to Your “Younger Self”

Train yourself in distance healing by working with your self. Rather than doing self healings as you did with Reiki 1, now you can send Reiki to yourself “by distance.” Use distance healing to heel issues in your own life. Sit down in your healing area. Meditate long enough to clear your mind, relax your body and establish concentration. Visualize yourself lying in bed and send energy to your “distant self.” By visualizing yourself in a different room at a slightly different time, you begin to “bend” time and space.

Then, when you lie down in bed to sleep, observe any sensations that indicate the flow of Reiki arriving. The real test will be to see how well you sleep and feel in the morning. Once you are familiar with sending distance healing to yourself, practice sending Reiki to other Reiki healers who understand the process. As you gain experience, begin sharing distance Reiki with friends and family. Use photographs, written notes or visualization to facilitate the healing.

The most powerful training procedure that I guide students to engage in involves sending distance healing to their “younger self.” This process may require several months, healing one year of life at a time. If for example you are now 26 years old, send energy back to yourself when you were 25 years old. During your next self healing session, send Reiki back to when you were 24 years old. Ultimely, send Reiki to your very birth and beyond.

Be sure to keep notes on this healing process. If it becomes too intense, slow down and take a few days off. There's no hurry! You've taken a lifetime to accumulate your issues; you do not need to discard them all this week. Each healing session focuses on one year of life at a time. Set a pace at which you can comfortably face your past, bring it into your presence consciousness and allow Reiki to help you reconcile any outstanding issues.

When Daidi completed her Reiki 2 training, she began exploring India and Thailand. As part of her Reiki 2 training, she sent distance healing to herself for every year of her life. She told me that, “Reiki changed my life, even better, it changed my attitude toward life. losing control over it. ”

She explained further that, “To heal myself physically has been always a process of learning to realize that we need constant care and awareness of ourselves. mind Reiki teachers me to respect myself and others as we are. It shows me how our spirits relate to our body and mind. where I live that matters, but the positive concept to live, grow and continuously learn to be at ONENESS with our universe. . ”

Distance healing to your younger self can take many months depending on your age and the intensity of the issues that require healing. This makes us wonder how somebody believes they can “learn” Reiki 2 in one or two days. It takes months! Years! Please take the time needed to integrate the spiritual and healing lessons that advanced Reiki offers you.

Connecting Your Chakras Using Reiki

Connecting the Chakras

With Reiki 1, students focus on healing one chakra at a time. As you gain more sensitivity to energy, you can begin a more complex healing pattern. Determine which chakras need to be energized by scanning (see article on scanning the aura) or using a pendulum (see my website). Place one hand on the weak chakra and put your other hand on the chakra above it for 1 to 3 minutes. This shares energy from a stronger chakra to raise the energy of the weaker one. Keep your hand on the weak chakra while moving the other hand up one more chakra until the energy stabilizes. Do this for each chakra above, all the way to the crown.

Proceed to connect the weak chakra to all of the chakras below it. Keep one hand on the weak chakra and place your other hand on each of the chakras below until all the chakras have been connected to the weak one. To summarize the procedure, review this example for connecting the heart chakra to the upper chakras.

  1. Left hand on heart, right hand above throat
  2. Left hand on heart, right hand on brow
  3. Left hand on heart, right hand on crown

Now, connect the heart chakra with the lower chakras.

  1. Right hand on heart, left hand on solar plexus
  2. Right hand on heart, left hand on sacral chakra
  3. Right hand on heart, left hand above root chakra

This completes the connection of the heart to the other six chakras, absorbing energy from all of them. While connecting chakras, consider the following implications. For example, when connecting your patient's heart chakra to other chakras, questions such as these can guide your therapeutic communication:

What would you like to express (chakra 5) about your emotions (chakra 4)?

How do you feel (chakra 4) about your creative expression (chakra 5)?


How do you feel (chakra 4) about your actions (chakra 3)?

What action can you take (chakra 3) to address your feelings (chakra 4)?


Connecting the chakras can be a very powerful way to round out your character. After reviewing the characteristics of each of the chakras, you will have a better idea of ​​your own strengths and weaknesses. If you find, for example, that your solar plexus is super-charged as evidenced by very high self-confidence and a highly driven personality, this suggests an excess of energy in your third chakra.

If at the same time you discover that you have cysts or tumors in your reproductive system, this suggests a weak or closed second chakra. By analyzing your personal habits and physical symptoms, determine which chakras are most in need of healing and connection.

Chakra Spread

This technique is used for severe emotional or physical pain. It brings a person to a defect level of healing than most other techniques. It should be reserved for special needs and sacred moments in healing. Ask your patient to sit in a chair while you are standing in front of them. Begin by grounding yourself well, mentally stable and physically well connected to the earth. Place your hands on your patient's feet for one or two minutes to be sure they are well grounded. Then hold your patient's hands in yours for one or two minutes to open their palm chakras. Walk behind your patient and place both hands on their crown chakra. Open their crown chakra by gently and slowly lifting both of your hands up and out as far as you can reach, like the wings of an eagle. Perform this movement three times. If other chakras are in need of opening, spread them in the same manner. Complete the healing process by closing their aura as described in an earlier article (closing the aura).

These articles have presented many concepts relating to each of the chakras, but this does not mean that you must memorize and know every detail of every chakra during every healing. The most effective way to approach this information is to review it from time to time, but be sure not to over intellectualize during your healings. Place your hands on each chakra and let the energy flow. If concepts or images come to mind, this shows that your intuition is working to inform you how to proceed. If your mind is quiet and still, that's great! As my Reiki Master Danielle always reminds her students, release all expectations during each healing. Just let the energy flow. When necessary, this technical information on each of the chakras is always available for further reference.

An Introduction to Chinese Traditional Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is often prescribed to be an ineffective place, while also called medieval cookery at its worst in some states. The truth behind all of these is that real Chinese traditional medicine, when performed by qualified professionals can help you with a number of diseases and ailments. However, this medicine practice has long remained a mystery.

Both academic and medicinal researches, in terms of potential benefits and shortfalls of the system have been far and few between. While in the past, Chinese medicine was more of a skill and education passed down by generations together with secret recipes and ingredients for medicines, in recent years it has certainly come to be drawn as modernized and mainstream.

This has mainly been implemented by tight regulations, while in some countries, dedicated courses of Chinese medicine are found in universities along with accreditation systems that provide more important research and information about Chinese medicine.

However, it has never been a replacement to standard, modern healthcare. Nor should it ever be taken as such. Even in Hong Kong, the traditional practice is treated as a complimentary practice and not as a substitution.

The entire idea of ​​Chinese Traditional Medicine is based around the idea of ​​restoring the balance to the body. Unfortunately, this form of medicine does not do itself any kind of public relation favors by referring to itself as Qi, the exact translation of which will be health or life force. More practically and scientifically put, one of the many afflictions that affect the body are caused by this form of medicine trying to restore the balance of medicine.

While the western form tries to find a cure by means of pinpointing the cause to the disease, the more Asian Form actually takes a holistic and wider approach to both treatment and symptoms. In China, while people find A Western doctor, to find a cure for measures or streproat, the Chinese practitioner automatically comes in when you need a cure to indigestion or lethargy.

Questions about your life, diet and family history easily comes up when your practitioner is practicing the more Asian based form. On the basis of all these answers the herbal concoction is made and often prescribed in soup form. From roots and leaves to fish parts and animal bones, this concoction can have almost anything. The problem is firstly enlarged and finally put to a cure in this form.

Acupuncture also forms a big part in most of the treatment methods.

What You Should Know About Your Amazing Gut

Unless they are experiencing heartburn or indigestion, most people rarely think about their gut, and few believe that it plays an important role in their overall health. But it does. It plays a critical role in the digestion of your food, it protects you from illness, and it is even important in relation to your mental health.

What is surprising is that your gut consists mainly of bacteria, and everyone knows that bacteria are bad for you. Several serious diseases, in fact, are caused by it. But all bacteria are not bad. There is both bad and good bacteria, and most of the bacteria in your gut is good.

The bacteria in your body are known by several names such as microflora, microbiota, and microbiome, and although some of it resides in your respiratory and urinary systems, most (by far) resides in your gastrointestinal tract, or gut. There are, in fact, over 500 varieties in your body, and they number about 100 trillion. Indeed, they actually outnumber the number of cells in your body by at least ten to one.

Beside keeping your bad bacteria in check, and assisting in the digestion of your food, they also produce several B vitamins, vitamin K, and folate. In addition, they help stabilize your metabolism, play a critical role in the health of our colon, and they even supply about ten percent of your energy.

Furthermore, they play an important role in relation to your nervous system. And 80- percent of your immune system resides in your gut. So, all in all it's obviously an important system, and it is therefore important to keep it healthy.

Obesity and Food Allergies

Everyone has a slightly different makeup of bacteria in their gut. Your microbiome is, in fact, characteristic to you in the same way your fingerprints are. This does not mean that it is unchangeable. It can, in fact, be changed reliably easy, and in some cases quite quickly. As we will see, diet and several other factors have a large impact on it.

Several studies have also shown that obese people have a different array of bacteria in their microbiome as compared to lean people. These studies have shown that even a slight shift in your bacterial balance can have an effect on your weight. So this is another reason to keep your gut healthy.

It is also now known that changes in your gut bacteria have an effect on the development of food allergies, particularly in young people. Studies have shown that food allergies in children increased by fifty percent between the years 1997 and 2011, and many researchers believe that it is because their microbiome were disturbed and changed when they were young.

Feeding Your Microbiome

It may appear strange, but the bacteria of your microbiome have to be fed if they are to remain healthy, in the same way the cells of your body have to be fed. In other words, if you want to keep them in proper balance you have to feed them properly. Two of the most important things in relation to this are probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are foods that contain active cultures of good bacteria. Prebiotics are substances that act as food for probiotics.

Fermented dairy products such as yogurt and kefir contain probiotics. Probiotic products are widely marketed. Most yogurt contain two live cultures, and kefir can contain as many as twelve. Fermented vegetables are also helpful.

Prebiotics are fiber or fiber-like materials that have no nutritional value for humans. Neverheless, they are important in everyone's diet, and are particularly helpful in maintaining a healthy gut.

Gut Bacteria Under Attack

Your good gut bacteria is under continuous attack, not only from bad bacteria but also other things such as:

  • A poor diet
  • Medicines
  • Your lifestyle
  • Pollution

Your diet has a major effect on the health of your gut. One of the things that is particularly harmful to it is sugar. High fructose corn syrup, which is used extensively in processed food, is particularly bad. Sugar promotes the growth of pathogenic yeast and other fungi, and it nourishes pathogenic bacteria.

In relation to medicines, the major problem is overuse of antibiotics. There's no doubt that we need antibiotics, and can not do without them; indeed, over the past few decades they have played a significant role in keeping people healthy. Unfortunately, they have also been used extensively in cases where they are not particularly effective, and this has allowed them to develop strains that are not controlled by our immune system – strains that are now referred to as “super bugs.”

In addition, antibiotics kill good bacteria in the same way they kill bad bacteria, so the health of your gut sufferers when you use them. And it usually takes several weeks or more for it to recover after their use.

One of the major problems with antibiotics started after it was discovered that not only do they kill bacteria, but they also add weight to animals when they are administered. So they are now used routinely by the agricultural community to “fatten up” their animals before slaughter.

Another medicine that is hard on gut flora is NSAIDs. They are anti-inflammatory drugs that are used primarily against arthritis. Your gut bacteria are affected by them and you should be careful of overuse of them because of this.

Stress also has a serious effect, as you likely know from experience. You will often get heartburn or other gastrointestinal maladies when you are unset, and this can affect your microbial balance. Finally, pollution also affects it, particularly industrial pollution that frequently affects the air in cities.

Summary of What You should do to Optimize Your Gut Health

It's obvious that a healthy gut should be a serious objective for everyone, and for this you should:

  • Maintain a healthy diet. In particular, avoid processed foods and simple carbohydrates as much as possible.
  • Eat probiotics – particularly yogurt and kefir.
  • Prebiotics are also important – eat sufficient fiber.
  • Avoid excess sugar.
  • Do not overuse antibiotics and NSAIDs.
  • Avoid stress.
  • Do not overuse antibiotic soap.
  • Avoid pollution.

Stopping The Panic, To Heal

Today we are going to be talking about the difference between doing your self-care without pain versus doing your self-care with pain. These are two completely different worlds, because your brain does something different when it's not in pain and when it's in pain: it's called panic. So let's teach you not to panic.

So first, as you're stretching and as you are doing your trigger point work and foam rolling, you want to think about getting your body to tell you specific things. Then you need to learn how those things feel and you have to learn them in detail. This is because when you go to the opposite side of the spectrum and you are going crazy, your brain is no longer in a relaxation mode. Instead, it is trying to go through many things at once and gets into panic mode. The first thing you have to do is slow down your brain and this gets your body to calm down. Then you go into those same activities but slowing them down completely to minute levels of movement. You have to get the body to stop wanting to protect itself so much. So if you hurt your ankle you can start with small ankle rotations and then ever it will let you increase the range-of-motion. Gradually it will allow you to reach a good range-of-motion which will then allow you to put a load on it. Now you can do more exercises where you can lift yourself.

Now, how does trigger point work and stretching different? Your 'flight or fight' response is going to get kick-started, so you will eventually stop feeling any sensations. This is what your body is designed to do. When you are in pain, your sensation for all those small things will diminish, so you have to move slower than you did before. Yet, you have to coax your body to calm down first. Once you start learning what you need to do to fix your body, you do not have a reason to panic, because you understand what your body is doing. You have to understand, the body will go through a process to fix itself. You will know what the process is and you can help it along when you are calm. So when you do your foam rolling, trigger point work, and stretching, you can get the body to move little by little. That's it – that is the healing process. That is what you have to learn how to do: getting everything to start balancing itself out.

Never Eliminating Pain By Fixing One Area

Today what we are going to be talking about is: you will never fix an area by doing just one thing. There are many reasons for this. The body is hard-wired to adjust and adapt to whatever you need. So if it complained about every little thing to you, you would never accomplish those hard feats that deal with fear, such as climbing a mountain or running a marathon. Your body would stop you from doing it. It does a very good job at stopping you if it does not want to do it. However, if you run and hurt your leg, it will not needlessly show you that it's hurt, if it does not view it as necessary. So what does that mean?

When you are in “fight or flight” the body is designed to not give you certain sensations so you can 'fly' away from the situation. We are in a society that is always stuck in “fight or flight” where we have to fight our way out of it. This is because are stressors are everywhere so our mechanism is consistently taxed. So we are not feeling anything. Additionally, the body has many different adaptive ways of working. If you are hurt in one area, it might not say anything but it will make another area compensate. You can not do just one thing. You have to do multiple things to structure the compensation pattern. For example, if your knee is hurting, you will never clean it up by focusing on just that hip. You have to work on the hip along with other areas to get the hip to work. We are not feeling anything we need to feel in the first place, and it's compensating on top of that. That means you will never know what's wrong with you, when something is wrong. I'm going to show you one of the many reasons why the body has different methods of compensation.

The body has what are called fascial trains, which are composed of fascial lines that run from your toes to your head. One of the trains called your spiral, runs through your left knee and hip and up to the right shoulder. So if you have a hip issue, the fascial line will start to bundle up in that area. Consequently, it will start pulling on the fascia from the knee. This means your hip pain could be giving you a knee issue or vice versa. Yet since it forms a spiral, it could also be giving you problems in your opposite shoulder. Unless you clean up the hip, knee, and opposite shoulder, you're never going to effective clean up your body because you do not recognize your shoulder is hurt. If you keep doing foam rolling on your hip and your knee starts to get better but your hip is still hurting, that means you are not hitting all the spots. If you keep doing things over again, and you are not getting cleaned up, you are not hitting the right core trigger. Your core trigger may not be your hip at all and instead, the opposite shoulder. So the better the shoulder moves, the better your hip moves. This causes better blood flow and indirectly more effective healing.

Now when you think about movement, where are you being stopped at? Is is just that hip? 85% of the time the answer is always 'no'. It is always someplace else. I understand there are time constraints and you have to do stretches real quick, but this is something that needs to be planned. You have to do your restoration work consistently. Once you do that, you are no longer just working on one area, you are doing different areas in different days of the week. So now you are clearing many areas of the body all the time. This is where you start to get efficient. Now the body has different ranges-of-motion and different ways of constructing compensation patterns. That's the way you want to start adding your body. It will never pin the point the problem. You are going to have to explore and see how your body responds and talks to you. You have to do something and see how it affects the whole. This is when you can start finding your problem or your skeleton key. You will start finding different things that unlock other areas.

You will never get it on the first shot. It just will not happen because the body is designed to not tell you everything. It's designed to do so, so stop trying to find the one thing. The majority of the time, you are going to need someone's help to find it. The body knows what it's doing, so let it do what it's doing.

Reiki Practitioner Frequently Asked Question – 1

If you are an existing or budding Reiki healer, this is one in a series of articles to help you along the way. First of all, let me congratulate you for walking this path. Reiki is a beautiful energy and way of life, and it is wonderful to help people heal, grow, and develop. Well done for having come this far, and for caring!

The question we are answering today goes something like this: “I had a Reiki client last week. The client reported good days and bad days and wanted to attribute the good days to the Reiki but as a rational and perfectly reasonable person, of course did not want to jump to conclusions. getting thoughts whizzing around in their head, as is normal for that client, in other words, there was no deep relaxation, unlike most of my other experiences giving people Reiki. any appropriate benefit during the session or afterwards. What should I say? ”

In order to best answer this question, let us borrow from NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming. Frames of reference, otherwise simply known as frames, provide a context for our thoughts and actions. It provides a frame of reference for what we experience. This is like the way a picture frame puts a border around what we can see in a picture. So we feel the experience within the boundaries of the frame. Our frame of reference with regards to any particular issue has the power to limit what we think of as possible or can open our eyes to many possibilities. For example, coming to a Reiki session with the belief that deep relaxation is most likely to occur or an expectation of feeling heat can limit the client in what they experience. Changing that frame to be more enabling can help us expect and therefore realize limitless possibilities. An important frame is a preframe. This acts as a frame within which our expectation of what is going to happen lies. When we make that frame broad with limitless capabilities, the client can expect the unlimited to happen. After all, Reiki connects us to the abundant and limitless realm.

So, having preframed the answer to this most frequent question, this is what I usually say before a client agreements to a Reiki session. I always say at the beginning that although there are amazing exceptions, Reiki usually does not get felt, for example, like a pain-killer that starts acting in our bloodstream 15 minutes later, and Reiki goes where it is most needed, not where we expect it to go necessarily. The client may feel the Reiki as warm, cold, a wavelike feeling, a tingling sensation, an electrical or vibration feeling, experience various thoughts, maybe temporarily uncomfortable emotions, or a nice relaxation; or the client may just not feel anything at all, which often happens and is perfectly normal. Which one of these reactions or non-reactions will be the client's reaction, is just fine. Reiki works in the background, whether we are immediately aware of it or not. It is best for us to have a course of say, 6 sessions, so that we can have enough chance for Reiki to do its work. Sometimes people need more, but let us think about a course of 6 for now.

When I first started giving sessions, I composed something like the above paragraph and printed it out to read to the client before agreeing to do Reiki. This helped me in remembering what to say, in order to provide as limitless a frame of possibilities as possible, as well as give the best service possible by having a complete course of sessions. Maybe you can re-write the paragraph in your own words, print it or remember it, and be ready for the next client's abundant possibilities of healing!

What Is A Trigger Point

We are going to be doing our weekly tip today and our weekly tip is all about the following: what is a trigger point? This is a subject that I've recently learned many people do not understand, so I'm going to break it down in more detail for you. In order to do that, I'm going to start by explaining the structure of the muscle.

First we are going to take any muscle and cut it in half to look at the cross-section. The muscle has the outer fascial layer with various muscle bundles inside and within each of them, there is a muscle fiber. This is further composed of muscle fibrils. I want you to realize this is a chamber device so your muscle bundles and fibrils go in and out as the muscle contracts. Sometimes the fascial layer does not allow the muscle tissue to slide. This is called fascial work. However, trigger point work is when the muscle tissue inside can not contract and gets stuck in a locked position. So as the other areas of the muscles start to slide, that particular contractile unit gets stuck and it bunches up. I will give you an easy definition: a trigger point is a muscle tissue that is no longer functioning properly. That's it. It's bunching up so it's not contracting properly.

For trigger point work, you have to understand that this one spot can do damage to many different areas. This can decrease the functionality of the whole muscle tissue. It will start compensating by asking the other areas to do more work than they have to. This becomes a cascading approach. So once you start to compensate, you are asking the other muscles to do more work they are not supposed to be doing, which will in turn make them fatigue faster. Understanding what is the bigger picture of the trigger point, lets now understand what it does.

When the muscle starts to add more compensation patterns, we have to get the core of this whole problem to start giving up. So now we have to start doing trigger point work by touching this area with a ball, a hand, or any other device. You will know when you hit it, because it reflects pain to a different part of the body. The pain will never be in the exact spot because there are many different referral points for the trigger point to go to. It also does not have to unnecessarily refer pain. A bound part of the muscle tissue can be considered a trigger point. So how do you deal with it?

You can deal with it by pushing and holding it, which will result in a discomfort sensation or referred pain. The other thing to do is the 'milk' the trigger point so you work in the direction it moves within the muscle. You will hit the point and roll across it in the pattern of the muscle. Two ways you can clear a trigger point are to either hold it and let it relax, or move it through its natural range-of-motion.

Reiki Healing Mastering and Healing the Emotions

One of the beauties of Reiki is that we can use it to heal ourselves and recover from the emotional injuries and stress that we have experienced through traumatic childhoods, overwork, substance abuse and the like.

If you believe that such challenges to your emotional well-being is affecting you reiki may be just the answer for you.

Reiki healing is a Japanese healing art that uses natural, universal energy to restore balance to the emotions, mind and body. Reiki has been used for decades to improve the quality of life of countless individuals who are suffering from a variety of physical, mental, and emotional issues.

The focus of this article is on how you can use Reiki to restore balance to your emotions. Healing our emotions is so important, because our emotions affect the quality of our social relations and also how we think and act. It affects everything that we do.

Reiki offers two ways to heal your emotional makeup: use a Reiki practitioner or Master, or learn to do Reiki healing for yourself. Practitioner have experienced First Degree and Second Degree Reiki training, while a Master has also trained and reached a Third-Degree level, the most rigorous training available. These people are able to do treatments in their office or at your home. Several treatments may be required for you to find relief with the emotional issues with which you might be having a problem.

The second option is to perform Reiki self-healing.

Either option will work and produce results. Below is a simplified self-healing process for emotional issues. Perform all of these steps to do a complete treatment. Repeat as often as you need to. The beauty of Reiki is that with proper intention it is hard to “mess it up”. It's a natural and gentle healing system that almost anyone can learn.

1. First, draw the First and Second Symbols of Reiki (Cho Ku Rei & Sei Hei Ki). Doing this will attune you to that part of yourself that is capable of channeling universal energy. You can learn to draw them from a variety of books on the subject or by going to YouTube on the internet.

2. Picture the emotional issue you may be having, possibly recalling a specific instance in which the issue isose. Fix a clear image in your mind and then let the image fade to one where all of the colors are gray.

3. When the image has become gray, visualize a new picture in your mind that corresponds to the output you would like to have. Again, be as specific as possible

4. Hold this new picture clearly in your mind and stamp it into your memory, substituting it for your old, undesirable picture.

5. Create a positive statement, an affirmation, to go along with the new picture such as “I see myself responding this way whenever I am confronted with this particular situation” (be specific as to what your response will be and the situation).

6. Verbally repeat this affirmation to yourself while placing your hands over your forehead. Allow, or channel, Universal energy (rei) to flow into the personal energy center located in your forehead, just above the center of your eyebrows (called the “third eye”). Now place your hands over your heart and channel rei into your heart chakra, repeating the affirmation. Lastly, in your mind's eye, “see” where the emotion is “staying” in you. (If fear is the emotion, for example, you may see or feel it in the stomach area). Channel rei using your hands into that area of ​​your body. Repeat the affirmation. Do each of these hand placements for a minute or two. Experience the healing energy that Reiki brings to each.

End the session with a simple “Thank you” to the Universe.

Nothing magical, nothing mysterious, about this, really. It's something we should all learn to do as a blessing for ourselves.

Now I realize that there was some new terminology in this exercise and that you might be concerned about “doing it right”. The exercise was intended to give you a taste of what Reiki is all about.

It helps if you experience at least one Reiki healing session with a practitioner, so you can hear what she / he does and how they do it. Ask for an attunement ceremony. Attunement spiritually connects you more strongly to the Source of Universal energies, which is one of the purposes of Reiki.

How The Body Heals Itself

Today what I'm going to be talking to you about is the natural progress of the healing cycle. This is going to be kind of fun because it shows you the big picture and gives you an idea of ​​what naturally happens within the body. What happens when you break a bone or sprain an ankle? Your body is going to go through a specific set of events to heal itself.

So, for example, when you break a bone in your leg, the body will first completely stop the area. It will block everything around it, so it will protect that area for all it's worth. You are not going to be able to move that leg, because it does not want any more damage done to it. With a sprained ankle, the same concept applies. It's going to stop the movement there because it does not want it to do any more damage.

Next, it's going to flood the area with blood, causing swelling. In a sprained ankle scenario, it still swells, but to a lower degree. That area will get full of pus and now is the time when it starts to do its work. This is where everyone starts to make their mistake by messing with their injury. What you have to realize is that during the first few days of this process, you are going to have to allow the body to do what it needs to do. It may feel uncomfortable, you will have pain, and you are going to want to do something with it, for example packing it with ice. Yet the reason why it's swelling it because it's trying to repair itself. However, when you have a swollen ankle, you do want to contain it by keeping your shoe on. Get more blood flow to run through it by walking in whichever way is comfortable for you. So do not take off your shoe, because as soon as you take off your shoe, it will get more swollen and that area will get bigger because now it has room to breathe. With a broken bone, you are going to have to let your bone set itself. That is why they cast you, to give the bone time to repair itself. With the sprained ankle though, you can now start learning instantly how far you can move it. At first it will be very small movements and often within days, you might get it to work a little bit better.

So now in the next phase, your body is rebuilding things. It will show you more heat, different sensations, and will be doing miraculous things. Healing is not a fun place, it's a combat zone since things are dying and rebuilding. Now that you know it's a war zone, you are going to expect things to be going on down there. With a broken bone, it's to the same degree, but the more you are aware of what's happening with your body, the faster your body is going to heal. So with a bone, you will put a cast on it and then 'set it and forget it' and let it go through its motions. With an ankle, you do the opposite and slowly start to work with it, which in turn is what can make it heal faster.

Now that it is rebuilding more, at this point, you can start actively doing more rehab based work. When you have a broken bone, you can start walking and putting small force on that bone, in incremental steps. Yet due to the cast, it's harder to know where you are in the healing process, because you can not really feel anything. So be very careful unless you are used to doing it all the time. As you put more weight on it, you will teach your bone to do things and it will construct itself incrementally.

In the last few phases, this is where your bone will start to heal more and you can put more weight on it. In the end, you're going to have a really clean bone, although it will have scar tissue. It's important to understand that if you do rehab work in the beginning stages, it can cause more harm here because the body has not completed its repairs. This is why knowledge is power , folks. Once you start realizing where you are, then you can start navigating. So now you can do work on it without having any fear. The more you play with it, it will start to get better and better. Yet with each one of these phases, comes a different timeline. With a broken bone, it will be a little while before you get it functioning again. With a sprained ankle, it could be a couple days or hours depending on how frequently you make it move, on your mindset, and how much you trust yourself.

It can move through the healing process reliably fast, you just need to know where you are on the whole scheme of things and you can make it go even faster. Imagine getting injured, and being able to get back into your activities again very quickly. Getting hurt is actually a good thing, if it is done properly. If you know where you are, you can make it even better, because now your body is reconstructing and it is doing so based on what you tell it in that particular phase. If you break something on a muscular level, it's going to bind and try to protect itself. Yet it needs to move, contract, and communicate and in order to do this is must be worked with. The healing process has it's steps, but the timing is all based on your mindset and the things you believe can do. Once you know this, you can speed through any injury because you know the healing process. This is true for a toothache, a migraine, and anything! It's going to first lock down the area, then rebuild itself, there's a loading phase, and then the end result where you can move again. If you loved this tip, share it.
