I was very excited to have the following article accepted for publication on the international Reiki resource website: Reiki Rays.
At the end of 2017 I had been invited to be interviewed for their Winter 2018 online Reiki submit. You will be able to find a link to that interview on my next blog post, if you would like to have a listen. They obviously liked what I had to say so I was delighted to have this article included on their site. It will probably be most useful for those of you who have already received a Reiki Attunement, (of any level), but could be read, and hopefully enjoyed, by anyone with an interest in knowing more about how Reiki works and what it might do for them.
Click on the following link to read about all the different sensations we may experience, and the results we may obtain, from a consistent regular self-Reiki practice. The article also explores how much more there is to Reiki than just the immediate sensations we may experience in our hands, particularly as not everyone does indeed experience these sensations.
I hope you enjoy reading all about Reiki in Your Hands
and find it useful. If you haven't yet received a Reiki attunement and would like to know more about how you too can have Reiki in your hands have a look at my page about Reiki Attunements
The importance of relaxation
As I travel through life there are certain beliefs I have abandoned over the years, some I continue to test and remain unsure of and still others that I have become more and more convinced about. One of the latter of these beliefs is that being able to properly and naturally relax is the essence of good health and wellbeing as well as essential for optimising most, or possibly all, of the functions that our human bodies need to perform minute by minute. We are bombarded these days with all the ways that stress negatively affects our wellbeing and our health and can lead to many serious illnesses so there is a general consensus that stress is bad but perhaps not yet a good understanding of what it really means to be fully relaxed.
Let me tell you a story about Alison. Alison had done a little meditation before but didn’t find it easy so decided to try a class. Life was quite stressful for Alison and her blood pressure had got a bit higher than ideal. Her doctor wasn’t insisting on medication yet but was keeping a close eye. She thought that regular meditation might help her to relax and cope better with the stress.
There is so much pressure at this time of year to make new year's resolutions, get fit and start new projects but I find myself wondering if this really is the right time of year.
