Ripple Effects of Reiki

Melissa Clark, Reiki Practitioner

Owner, The Wholistic Package

 

As humans we are constantly going and moving through this thing called life. As technology increases, so does our need as people, to move quicker, think quicker, act quicker and get results quicker. Our bodies, minds and spirits are moving at quicker speeds. In this world today, and living the hectic lives we live, with family, work, and all other responsibilities, it's important to stop for a moment, re-center within yourself and allow your mind, body and spirit to rejuvenate. 

 

This is how I discovered Reiki. I was working two jobs and going through a stressful personal time and I began to experience severe anxiety and panic attacks. I knew I had to make life changes, but I wanted to take a natural approach and this is when I discovered Reiki. I first began sessions, then became a practitioner.

 

Reiki, (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese healing art, meaning universal life force energy. Reiki balances energy flow to reduce negative energy and toxins and promotes positive energy flow. Reiki promotes healing, reduces stress and anxiety, reduces side effects of medication, improves sleep, focus and concentration and has a multitude of benefits. Reiki is unique to each person. In Reiki, it is believed that if our life energy is balanced or flowing well, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being will be in a better state.

 

Reiki restores the balance of your energy flow which sometimes can be "blocked," if we are going through physical or emotional stresses. Once the “blockages” and toxins are released, our energy can flow properly. Reiki energy travels to where it needs to go in the body. Reiki does not substitute for medical attention, however it can work in conjunction with medical services. Many hospitals now offer this service for patients going through treatments and to help relieve side effects, and it's sometimes offered, pre and post surgeries. People going through cancer and receiving radiation and chemotherapy, have found relief, from this practice. Even if you are not going through any type of physical or emotional stresses, it is a great technique to promote relaxation and keep your energy balanced for your overall well-being.

 

During a session, the practitioner focuses on energy points, called "chakras." The practitioner will use light touch and/or hold their hands above the energy points. You may feel a warm sensation or tingling. Each person may have a different experience. Some may or may not feel a physical sensation. Some people experience emotional feelings as well. Essential oils, also correlate with chakras and Reiki and can be used in a session. Reiki touches on your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, all in a positive way. You will leave the session feeling relaxed and with a sense of tranquility.

 

In addition, to individuals seeking a relaxation session, Reiki can also be offered to new parents and babies, veterans/law enforcement and people suffering from trauma, individuals with mental health and/or addiction issues as well as corporate wellness programs. 

 

Why is self-wellness so important? Everything begins with our own wellness. Whether it be our personal lives or professional lives, our wellness contributes to our daily outlook and our emotional and physical well-being. Reiki contributes to a more peaceful life and our wellness contributes to a happier, more productive life. Whether you incorporate Reiki, mediation or anything that gets you back to your center, as well as things that you love, this will contribute to your overall wellness.

 

In the Western world, Reiki is becoming more mainstream. I live in NY and many people think this is a West Coast thing. It's an EVERYONE thing. It helped me through a stressful, anxious time and that is why I have a passion to offer it to others. I look at this as routine maintenance. The more you receive Reiki, the more you will feel consistently balanced. The ripple effects of Reiki, are a great experience and contribute to a beautifully balanced life!

  • Naturally, most people don’t see the immediate connection between general health and their teeth, but those two parts of human health are more than connected. Oral health can actually affect everything from your smile to your heart and your bones. Here’s exactly what might happen if you decide to neglect your dental health. Preserving your teeth Of course, taking good care of your oral cavity will prevent a lot of issues with teeth and gums. Brushing and flossing after every meal (or at least twice a day) will do wonders for your pearly whites, but what's more important is seeing your dentist regularly. Your professional will be able to check your teeth, clean them and spare you from many costly procedures and health issues. For instance, a simple tiny cavity fix can spare you a lot of money, time and pain of a root canal procedure. Heart issues Aside from preserving your smile, your teeth can also affect your heart. For instance, the bacteria and germs from your mouth can spread through your bloodstream, reach your heart, attach themselves to the inner lining of your heart chambers and valves (endocardium) and cause serious infections or endiocarditis. Additionally, according to many research, strokes, clogged arteries and various other heart issues can be caused by inflammations in the mouth caused by oral bacteria. Diabetes Gum tissue inflammations can make it harder for people with blood sugar issues to control their diabetes symptoms . Diabetic people are also more prone to periodontal disease which creates a vicious cycle that can only be solved with proper dental care. If you manage to reduce the bacteria in your mouth, you will be able to get your blood sugar under control and vice versa. Osteoporosis This very serious disease weakens the bones and can be connected to jaw bone loss as well as tooth loss. Certain medication prescribed to people suffering from osteoporosis can affect jaw health, so it’s very important to regularly see your dental care provider. If you’re scared of the dentist, don’t worry— check out Delight Dental Spa in Mascot and you can have a relaxing spa experience that will also ensure your teeth and jaw are in best possible condition. Pneumonia Infections in your mouth can reach your lungs and cause serious health issues like pneumonia . While the connection isn’t super obvious, experts think that you can breathe in the bacteria from your infected teeth or gums, pull them into your lungs and cause respiratory issues. Dementia Just like the bacteria from your gums can reach the lungs, they can also reach your brain through the nerve channels or through the bloodstream and lead to the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Pregnancy issues Pregnant women often tend to eat well, take plenty of vitamins and have regular general health checkups, but they still tend to avoid dental health that can have a huge effect on their pregnancy. Besides visiting a gynecologist, all future mothers need to regularly see their dentists. The hormone boost in pregnancy can make certain dental issues worse . Additionally, periodontitis can also put babies are risk of premature birth and low birth weight which is very alarming. Good dental health is really the key to a healthy pregnancy and a strong and happy baby. HIV risks People living with HIV are extra prone to infections which can also result in serious health complications and even death. Even small infections can quickly become fatal health issues due to a person’s weak immune system. So, people with HIV need to have a strict dental hygiene routine and see their specialist regularly in order to maintain good dental health. If you ensure your teeth are clean and healthy and your gums are strong, you will get to prevent many health issues and have a wonderfully white and radiant smile which is always a huge plus!
  • A growing amount of research proves the old saying – you are what you eat. We are all aware that in order to stay fit and healthy, we must include fresh and healthy foods into our daily meals, yet most of us are not entirely aware of the actual effect certain foods have on our bodily and brain functions. Carbs and starchy foods make us sleepy and unproductive, while fresh veggies and fruits give us energy, right? However, there are so many nutrients our body and mind need on a daily basis in order to function at their best. The following list breaks down some of the healthiest foods (and drinks) and explains the specific benefits to our body and mind. 1. Ginkgo Biloba Ginkgo biloba has been an essential ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine for ages. Nowadays, it is becoming well known around the world as one of the most powerful herbs when it comes to its antioxidant levels. Most commonly used as a supplement, or added to tea, it is used to slow down the aging process. According to a large amount of research , its powerful effect is evident not only in our physique, but our brains reap the benefits of it as well. Namely, ginkgo can be used as a memory booster and it also provides help when it comes to fighting the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, it helps with conditions such as depression, multiple sclerosis and tinnitus. Since it increases the blood flow in our body and brain, it is also commonly used to help circulation and ease leg pain caused by clogged arteries. If you want to look and feel younger, and boost your memory and brain function, include ginkgo biloba supplement into your daily intake, and don’t forget to consult your doctor about the dosage and possible side effects first. 2. Oranges Apart from being juicy and delicious, oranges are a powerful source of vitamin C. Nothing can beat that amazing energy boost you get after a glass of freshly made orange juice in the morning. Vitamin C does this to your body and mind. It takes only one large orange to provide your body with enough vitamin C to keep you healthy and mentally strong for an entire day. Aside from increasing our general immunity, vitamin C also plays an important role in reducing the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease. What’s more, it is a strong memory booster and helps our brain stay sharp. It is also recommended as a potential aid in preventing symptoms of dementia, as well. 3. Matcha From improved skin and sleep to lower glucose and bad cholesterol levels, matcha powder provides numerous health benefits, probably more than any other known herb. Originating from the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, matcha green tea powder is a type of green tea that is specially harvested and prepared to get a more intense flavour, colour and effect. Being high in caffeine, theanine and chlorophyll, matcha green tea powder helps in treating symptoms of numerous conditions and improving health in general. Matcha green tea is extremely rich in antioxidants which help your cells fight off diseases and keep you young for longer. Moreover, it will help you stay alert and focused, without the negative side effects of caffeine in coffee. Aside from enhancing your brain power, matcha green tea also reduces the levels of bad cholesterol and stress in your body and mind. Include a cup of freshly made matcha green tea into your daily diet for better memory, concentration and many other health benefits this herb brings to your body and mind. 4. Coconut Oil Another amazing natural addition to our diet and skincare is the super powerful coconut oil. Probably, most of us would think of skincare first when we mention this oil. No wonder, since it acts as a natural moisturiser for your skin and hair. You can use it as face cream, body lotion, or hair conditioner. It also keeps bacteria at bay, therefore it is commonly used as toothpaste, usually mixed with baking soda. However, its benefits don’t stop there. When consumed as food, coconut oil has been proved to increase brain function, as a study on Alzheimer’s patients shows. 5. Oatmeal Probably not your favourite breakfast choice, but you force yourself to eat it every once in a while because you’ve heard it’s healthy and keeps your weight in check, right? Well, the reason it is one of the most suggested foods to start the day off with is because the carbohydrates in it help you get enough glucose to keep you energised and sharp throughout the day. Additionally, it can be used as an amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory facial scrub to treat acne and oily skin. 6. Fish If you still haven’t included fish in your weekly meal plan, you should do it immediately. When you’re at it, make sure to stock up on fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, and sardines since they are rich in protein and valuable omega-3 fatty acids. Protein helps your muscles develop, whereas fatty acids enhance your memory, fight off depression and inflammation, and improve your immune system. It’s also super easy to prepare. You can add it to pasta, rice, or veggies, or sprinkle olive oil over it and put it in the oven for a delicious dinner. 7. Turmeric Turmeric, or curcumin, aside from being a tasty addition to your soup or vegetable dish, is also packed with powerful agents that keep you healthy and improve your memory and brain function. Although more commonly used in treating inflammatory , bacterial and viral infections, it has proved to be effective in treating Alzheimer’s disease and some types of cancer.
  • Aside from providing a fresh and stunning background for your Instagram feed, travelling to different locations around the globe can be a truly beneficial experience for your soul as well. Much like the protagonist of the legendary Eat, Pray, Love masterpiece on soul-searching, we are all familiar with the urge to get away at least for a couple of days in order to actually find ourselves. As human beings, we tend to get lost in the every-day race with time, and the stress to get ahead gets the best of us. Going on a trip filled with amazing places and activities is scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways to regain your strength and heal your soul after a harsh period. It Helps Us Stay in the Present Moment One of the most important factors for our mental health and wellbeing of our soul is being in the now. Stress, depression and anxiety occur when we ignore the present moment and contemplate the past, or worry about the future. It can be quite challenging to remain grounded in the present moment when we are focused on the every-day troubles and routines that require certain escapist episodes just to get us through the day. When we are travelling, the sheer amount of excitement and curiosity about different sights, cultures, cuisines, and languages makes us stay focused and in the now. Aside from planning transportation, life on the road leaves room for carefree exploration that can take you anywhere. For this reason, our mind and soul get a break and a boost of energy by living in the moment and for the moment. It Makes Us More Grateful Being in one place for too long and doing the same repetitive activities makes us less aware of life in general. Everything becomes too plain and familiar, and we become ungrateful and oblivious to different beauties and nuances of life experience around us. Travelling inspires the childlike amazement and wonder. Visiting new places gets us to experience everything for the first time, which awakens our inner being to excitement and appreciation. As we travel more and get to have more of these moments, we learn to notice more, get impressed more easily and appreciate everything that we are surrounded with. It Makes Us More Social Travel provides us with a unique opportunity to meet new people and create connections through shared experiences. While travelling with friends or family is great, travelling alone will force you to get out of your comfort zone and talk to more people than you would otherwise. This will enrich your soul and inspire you to grow as a person. It is a natural response to turn to other people when you need guidance or help. Being in a foreign country and having to ask strangers for help will enhance your sense of trust in people and produce a sense of oneness. As a consequence of your openness to profound social interaction, your confidence levels will increase and your self-belief will improve. It Relieves Stress Everyday troubles and worries can cause serious exhaustion even in the most resilient of us. Dealing with stress on a regular basis often results in burnout and a number of mental health problems. Travelling is considered one of the most efficient stress-relieving activities since it makes us leave all the mundane activities for a little while and adopt new, more dynamic and less predictable routines. Strolling around Vojan Gardens or through the Deer Moat Pedestrian Tunnel in Prague will take you out of your rut and every-day stress and open up your mind and soul for new ideas, possibilities and chances. For those who are stuck for ideas or would like someone else to handle their event management, accommodation, transport, or organise a tour, Prague Eventery is the place to turn to. If you are in need of a more peaceful and warm spiritual experience, some of the most naturally beautiful beaches of the world can provide you with gorgeous scenery for meditating and doing mindful practice. Marinha Beach in Lagoa, in the Portuguese region of the Algarve, offers a breathtaking and quiet backdrop secluded by the cliffs. It’s a Learning Experience Aside from learning about different cultures, traditions, histories, languages, and societies, the most important learning process while you are traveling is happening within yourself and is about yourself. The only way you could help your soul achieve a more stable feeling of happiness and contentment is if you first get to know yourself better. Staying in the safe and familiar environment that provides comfort won’t let you have this valuable insight. Once you are in less familiar surroundings that urge you to take care of yourself and get around by relying on yourself, you will learn valuable lessons about your strengths and weaknesses and coping mechanisms. As a result, your confidence will improve. By witnessing your ability to get around in unfamiliar places and continuing despite the occasional sense of unease, you will feel accomplished and more appreciative of yourself.
