I have been doing some research into short meditations recently. I am planning to record some more of my own meditations, (listen to and download my existing meditations here
). This is a great way to get ideas and think about what I like, what I’m not so keen on and what I think works well. The extra benefit is that I get to spend a bit more time relaxing and focusing for myself, with someone else leading the way. We all need outside support some of the time.
Some meditations use affirmations as a way to help boost positive thinking and encourage us to feel good about ourselves rather than focusing on the negatives, on things we don’t like or those aspects we aren’t happy with. Affirmations aren’t something I have used a lot myself but I know they work really well for some people. There’s no right or wrong way to meditate. It is much like exercise where different types will suit different bodies and the most important thing is to find something you enjoy and that works well for you and what you’re trying to achieve. Keep it fun too!
I have been involved with the Business Women’s Networking Group, Women on Wednesday or WoW, in Salisbury since not long after I moved to the West Country from London nearly twelve years ago. This group has been a fantastic support to me as a self-employed person. I received a lot of help as I was building Natural Healing Energy in this new area and I also made some good friends along the way.
I was delighted to be asked to be asked to be involved in the second international online Reiki summit hosted by Reiki Rays. You can listen to me talking about why we sometimes end up not using the Reiki we have been attuned to use
even though it may help us.
This offers some great insights about Reiki generally and also the bigger picture of health care and self care. If you've already been attuned to Reiki it will leave you keen to get going again and if you haven't yet learned how to use this wonderful self-care tool then have a look at what a Reiki Attunement involves
I hope you enjoy listening and would love to hear your feedback.
I was very pleased to be invited to take part in an international online Reiki Summit that aired in January this year. I was interviewed about how Reiki sits within the field of health care. As someone who previously worked in the UK National Health Service as well as having a private healthcare practice since 2005, this is a subject dear to my heart.
My colleague, Dr Tiffany Hunter, who I originally worked with on a child development research project at The Anna Freud Centre in London over 20 years ago, and have since shared much of my Reiki journey with, was also interviewed. Dr Hunter spoke about how Reiki works with emotional blocks and abuse.
I am thrilled to now be able to bring you recordings of both these interviews so you can download and listen
to them, even if you missed the Reiki summit. You will also find digital copies of the meditations from my two meditation CDs: Meditation for Busy People
and Meditation for Tired People
For my final piece of news I am delighted to share that I have also just been asked to do another interview with Reiki Rays for their spring Reiki summit and I look forward to providing details about that with you very soon. Have a look at my page about Reiki Attunements
if you would like to find out more about how you could learn to use Reiki on yourself as a key part of your self-care practices.
