The knowledge that unseen energy flows through all living things and directly corresponds to one’s quality of health is part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The existence of “life force energy” has been verified by recent scientific experiments. This energy can be found in everything from rocks to God. Many members of the healthcare community now embrace the role that Reiki and other energy work techniques plays in bolstering the immune system, reducing stress and overall healing.
Chakras are “Entry Gates” of the Aura. Within the physical body resides a body double, a spiritual, energetic body that contains the Chakras. The word “chakra” in Sanskrit translates to wheel or disc. Like a vortex, they are centers of activity that receive, assimilate and express life force energy. They are responsible for the person’s physical, mental, and spiritual functions. They absorb and transmit energies to and from the universe, nature, celestial entities, from people even from things.
According to the traditional writings there are 88,000 chakras in the human body covering basically every area in the body. The majority of them are small and insignificant but 40 of them have significant function and they are in the hands, feet, fingertips, and shoulders.
The most significant ones are the seven main chakras located along the central line of the body, from the base of the spine to the top of the head. They are located in the ethereal body and they express the embodiment of spiritual energy on the physical plane.
Crystals used during energy healing will help to open, align and balance the energy centers. They will speed up the healing process. The purpose of placing specific types of stones is to release etheric, emotional, mental or spiritual blocks to well-being. Each stone (or semi-precious gem) has a corresponding color to the chakra and unique energetic attributes. This will give each chakra a boost of its own vibration. It is believed that the interaction between the stones and chakras will return the chakra into healthy vibration, therefore, healing the part of the body affected. Simply by placing a different beneficial stone on each of the seven chakras can be a general tonic to strengthen and tone up the entire system.
Reiki is a spiritual practice designed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui, that uses a technique commonly called palm healing as a form of complementary and alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professionals. Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring healing energy in the form of “Ki” through the palms.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy”.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual/emotional healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
When the flow of the “Life Force Energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way. Reiki has is a subtle yet powerful way to balance the chakras and release any negativity to create optimal health and harmony.
“If there is pain, there is no free flow; if there is free flow, there is no pain”
We live in a world that is literally created, held together, and changed by vibration, frequency and harmonic wave patterns which we call sound. Sound is perceived by the ears but felt on many levels, affecting the body in different ways. For centuries, Buddhist monks have used sound to induce a meditative state of higher consciousness.
Using Tibetan singing bowls enhances meditation, intuition, relaxation and bodywork sessions. The vibrations slow down the brain waves to a deeper, higher level and resonate all the way down to the cellular level. Sound therapy is a powerful way of calming the mind and creating a hypnotic effect. Bowls are used for music therapy, chakra system balancing, emotional release and clearing negative energy of people and places. Singing bowls heighten and enliven the body, mind and soul and provide the perfect vibration for tranquility and grounding with the Earth.
Everyone can benefit from healing singing bowls and hypnotic vibrations. Most of us have only a small amount of pure, clear, healing sound in our lives. Our ears no longer get a daily exposure to running streams, bird songs, and the rustling leaves in the forest. The world today is full of “noise pollution” and our negative inner chatter. The beautiful natural music of life is replaced by the hum of computers, television and other electronic devices, cell phones, the high-pitched whine of fluorescent lights and the likes. This is the opposite of healing sound! We grow accustomed to tuning out these noises, along with construction, traffic, crowds, and commercials so that they don’t intrude into our inner space. Since we don’t have “earlids” to close, we shut the sound out with our minds, which can get to be an unhealthy habit that extends to tuning out beneficial sound too.
The pure sonic waves that ring from the Tibetan singing bowls wake up our ability to listen, feel and HEAR. Hearing occurs with more than our ears. Sound is vibration and that vibration moves throughout our body. With the singing quartz crystal or Tibetan bowls, we FEEL the sound as much as we take it in with our ears. The singing bowls create a totally relaxed and meditative feeling – the ultimate in meditation music therapy!
