Healing Beyond The Superficial Layer

When we think of healing we typically think of a cut we get on our skin after placing some ointment on it and slapping a band aid for protection, or maybe we think about healing after a surgical procedure when all the bandaging and stitching is over. Superficially the healing process begins immediately after an injury. Blood begins to clot, endorphins start to pump and T cells flood the vessels. The body intrinsically begins to work its magic from the inside out on the physical level. Intuitively we take action to aid our body in its healing process by nurturing the injury from the outside. This process of self care and internal autopilot is imbedded in every human being.

Positive Energy

Let’s go beyond the superficial for a moment and look at the instinctual process of nurturing an injury on the emotional level. As a mother runs to the aid of her Injured son as he falls off a bike and scrapes his knee, soon after assessing the injury, mom naturally coddles the child with soothing words and some motherly strokes to the head comforting the child’s emotional distress. This level of comfort is a type of emotional healing we naturally implement after a traumatic experience. Studies have shown that a persons injury is healed quicker and recuperates with less stress while the physical healing is coupled with emotional healing.

We take this to a deeper level and see their is more than meets the physical and emotional eye to a place of energy.

On this level of vibrancy and subtleness we tap into very powerful fields of intangible yet effective levels of healing. It is scientifically proven that the human body is made up of mostly energy that uniquely resonates to each individual, this energetic frequency emanates mainly from the heart center but also resonates within each of our cells.

Love Yourself

This is an easy test you can try at home. Start your day with 20 min of positive self talk, look in the mirror and speak nothing but love, praise and compassion, see yourself as a radiant, beautiful and joyful person smiling from ear to ear, hug and kiss the mirror if you will and feel that loving energy throughout your system. The next day do the opposite and berate yourself, calling yourself horrible names shout and scold yourself for 20 min. You will immediately feel tired, sad, maybe even depressed and sluggish, your day may even have a domino effect with negative outcomes.  After each day take notes and notice the effects this experiment has on you, Your emotions, your actions, your energy , your day, your choices and how the people around you behave as well.

The emotional energy we put into ourselves weather conscious or subconscious has a major effect on our bodies and a domino effect thereafter. Words and intentions are very powerful tools for healing and with awareness and the right intention we can unlock another level of healing in our tool box.

Healing has many levels and the more levels we tap into the more possibilities we have to thrive as an individual and as a collective species. The next time you get injured or someone you love gets psychically hurt remember to address the emotional and energetic component as well, this is the beginning of healing beyond the Superficial.

Healing With Reiki – An All Inclusive Method

Many people are still unfamiliar with Reiki and what it means.

Reiki is a type of energy healing method that has been past down traditionally from teacher (Reiki Master) to Student, holding the integrity of the practice as traditionally as possible. Interpretations may vary yet the purpose still remains that of healing the whole person.

Reiki is an ancient healing practice utilizing universal life energy also known as Chi or Prana ( The force that sustains life itself ) This energy is translated through the practitioner to the patient in need of healing by laying of the hands upon or hovering above the patient.

Healing occurs naturally, effortlessly and at the patient’s soul level’s pace, I will explain further what this means.

When speaking of Reiki your not only speaking of potentially healing at the the physical level. It is scientifically proven that the body as a whole is multidimensional, made up of about 93% energy and not just skin and bones.  When treating the whole person as western medicine typically fails to do with their “pop a pill” and “quick fix”  methods, on an energetic level, Reiki addresses the concerns of a patient’s emotional, physical, mental and spiritual levels bringing light to the person as a  whole and not just the symptom or labeled diagnosis which itself posses a limiting possibility for treatments but that’s a different topic all together.

We were born with everything we need to support our lives through this journey and with the ability to heal ourselves and others given the proper care mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually throughout our journey. What typically happens to our divine beings as soon as we are born into this world is we are bombarded by chemicals, poked and prodded, and initially told we are incapable of naturally taking care of ourselves as soon as mom steps into the hospital for check in. The Chemicals that run through our virgin blood stream is communicating to our physical system that what we are just not good enough. Mom is told she is incapable of giving birth naturally and is prepped for the assembly line for the business of being born. Follow this introduction with a bombardment of pharmaceuticals, a poor diet and a constantly stressful environment weather it be home or work or both we are faced with a human crisis that can only be treated by confronting the entire being one level at a time.

As you see from the day we are born we are delivered into a system that tells our spirit and body that we cannot survive without interference.The truth is not only can we survive without interference but we are capable of thriving even amongst interference. So from day one our psyche is challenged and our divine selves are veiled before us. Leaving us with a sense of amnesia and in a state of therapy towards our true and powerful selves. Reiki works to unveil and unravel our powerful and divine being by peeling the layers like an onion one level at a time or multi-levels at a time depending on where the patient is as their soul’s journey. Their are many forms of energy healing and Reiki is just one of them as a non invasive way to heal on many levels which is very subtle yet can be potentially a very powerful tool for transformation and healing into ones divine self.

  • When the body is healthy but the mind is not, the person will suffer illness.
  • When the mind is healthy but the body is not, the person will suffer illness.
  • When the spiritual self is undernourished and the physical self is over nourished the person will suffer illness.
  • When the emotional self is neglected or overindulged the person will suffer illness.

The whole person is intricate & multifaceted on many levels and when one level is off balance other levels will suffer the consequence which is why self awareness through the practice of meditation, yoga, body care (Massage), energy work, emotional work is pivotal to a thriving and whole person. Self care leads to self balance which leads to self healing but most don’t know where to begin, that is why their is a dire need and uprising of many life coaches, nutritional counselors, yoga instructors, alternative healers and energy workers. These ” New age ” healers are rising to the calling of the multifaceted being that has suffered the neglect of true care for far too long.
