Reiki Workshop: A Commitment To Radical Self-Care

Version 2

Community! Community! Community!

Last Saturday I co-taught a workshop called Detoxing, Clearing and Balancing Practices For Healers with Joy Snipes and Elizabeth Fulmer. This community was built around the Reiki practice of Elizabeth Fulmer and ReikiFocus. Because of Elizabeth, there is a lot of healing happening in Davis, California.

Gathering in circles, classes and meditation groups is so powerful. The group energy last Saturday was deeply healing.

Below is part of a meditation we shared. Please feel free to use any part of this meditation in any way you feel inspired. Use it in your own circles, prayer groups, workshops, personal meditations or blog posts.

The energy of the world has changed in the last few months. Change is stressful, and many people are afraid, many people are angry, and many do not feel safe.

We as Reiki Practitioners are being called to deepen our connection to source and hold sacred space outside the healing room, as well as in our sessions.

We can only do this if we commit to staying clear and balanced.

We are so powerful. One grounded, centered person can shift the energy of an entire room.

This workshop is a commitment to radical self-care, a commitment to staying connected to the sacred space within ourselves. Only by holding the peace internally can we create peace externally.

When there are times when we can’t connect to that sacred space within ourselves, we can always connect to this commitment.

By staying clear, connected and open, we can act from our deepest intuition and our highest wisdom.

By setting the intention to be grounded with an open heart, we are in the greatest service to our clients, our community, and the planet. This is the greatest healing we can give the world.

At this time there is much chaos in the world. Focus on the stillness and support all around you. Sacred space can hold it all.

We are setting our intention to not fight the darkness, but to move toward the light.

Recommit To Your New Year Resolutions, Intentions And Promises

fireworks-1599821__480We are now into the 6th day of 2017.

Did you make any New Year resolutions?

Did you give up sugar? Decide to exercise regularly? Vow to drink more water?

Day six is about the time you start experiencing the physical symptoms of your body in detox because of a new diet.

Today also may be the day you might have found it impossible to get out of bed early enough to go to the gym. You ate half a candy bar yesterday. You may feel you are slipping back into the old habits you are trying to change.

It is time for the new year resolution reality check.

True change comes from recommitment. If you did eat that candy bar yesterday: let it go. Remove all the candy bars from your kitchen and office area and start again. Recommit. You didn’t fail. You are learning how to set yourself up for success. Change is all about being in the moment.

Plan a gym workout later in the day if you can’t get up early. Or maybe working out everyday is unrealistic for you at this time – redefine your goals and work out every other day. New Year resolutions are a good way to begin new projects and create new habits, but often (I raise my hand) we set some very unrealistic goals for ourselves.

Healing Touch and Reiki treatments are incredibly helpful when you are making changes in your life. Especially when you are cleaning up your diet and your body is cleansing, a Healing Touch session can help you release the toxins in your physical body that will reduce detox symptoms like muscle pain, headaches and, fatigue and irritability.

Healing sessions balance all levels of your being: emotional, mental and physical. Making changes in your life is so much easier when your energy field is in balance.

Healing Touch And Detox

“At Martha’s Healing House”

I have found in my personal healing practice that one of the many benefits of Healing Touch is the release of toxins from the physical body.

I know this may sound crazy to anyone not familiar with energy work, but over the years my clients have consistently reported the physical symptoms of toxins in the body, such as fatigue from medications, headaches from allergies and tightness in the chest from environmental pollution, fall away after a healing. Some people have said they can actually feel chemical exposure or old medication leaving their body during a session.

One man who had been working with toxic cleaners a few days before his healing, reported that after his session his urine was discolored for several days and then he felt amazingly better.

Similarly, clients who have recently been under anesthesia seem to release residual drugs still in their body – especially from chemotherapy. In my last post I wrote about a client who was experiencing withdrawal after going off the pain medication from his surgery. The energy work was very helpful in getting him through the ordeal.

I have worked with two clients who were able to release toxins they traced back to specific environmental events from their childhood. It took a series of sessions in each case, but after the energy work, they feel much stronger and healthier. Clients who relax and release tight muscles during a Healing Touch session often tell me the next day their bodies are sore, as though they have experienced a deep tissue massage.

Most remarkably, a client and I both smelled cigarette smoke during her Healing Touch session, even though the woman had stopped smoking years before.

If you are feeling sluggish, fatigued or you seem to get every cold that comes along, think about trying Healing Touch. Energy work is also a wonderful support when making dietary changes or doing a cleanse or fast. Healing Touch helps the physical body release and return to its natural state of health and equanimity.

Energy work improves quality of life.
