Chapter XIV part II of You Can Heal Your Life

October 23, 2009

You Can Heal Your Life CHAPTER XIV – PART II 

contd from Part I ……..

 

That which belongs to you cannot be taken from you, so relax.

THE FINGERS each have meaning. Problems in the fingers show where you need to relax and let go. If you cut your index finger, there is probably anger and fear that has to do with your ego in some current situation. The thumb is mental and represents worry. The index finger is the ego and fear. The middle finger has to do with sex and with anger. When you are angry, hold your middle finger and watch the anger dissolve. Hold the ritht finger if your anger is at a man and the left if it is at a woman. The ring finger is both unions and grief. The left if it is at a woman. The ring finger is both unions and frief. Th little finger has to do with the family and pretending.

THE BACK represents our support system. Problems with the back usually mean we feel we are not being supported. Too often we think we are only supported by our job or by our family or spouses. In realilty, we are totally supported by the Universe, by Life itself.

The upper back has to do with feeling the lack of emotional support. My husband/wife/lover/friend/boss doesn’t understand me or support me.

The middle back has to do with guilt. All that stuff that is in back or us. Are you afraid to see what is back there, or are you hiding what is back there? Do you feel stabbed in the back?

Do you feel real “burnt out”? are your finances in a mess, or do you worry about them excessively? Then your lower back my be bothering you. The lack of money or the fear of money will do it. The amount you have has nothing to do with it.

So many of us feel that money is the most important thing in our lives, and that we could not live without it. This is not true. There is something far more important and precious to us without which we could not live. What is that? It is our breath.

Our breath is the most precious substance in our lives, and yet we totally take for granted when we exhale that our next breath will be there. If we did not take another breath, we would not last three minutes. Now if the Power that created us has given us enough breath to last for as long as we shall live, can we not trust that everything else we need will also be supplied?

THE LUNGS represent our capacity to take in and give out life. Problems with the lungs usually mean we are afraid to take in life, or perhaps we feel we do not have the right to live life fully.

Woman have traditionally been very shallow breathers and have often thought of themselves as second-class citizens who did not have the right to take up space and sometimes not even the right to live. Today, this is changing. Women are taking their place as full members of society and breathing deeply and fully.

It pleases me to see women in sports. Women have always worked in the fields; but this the first time in history, as far as I know, that women have gone into sports. It is wonderful to see the magnificent bodies that are emerging.

Emphysema and heavy smoking are ways of denying life. They mask a deep feeling of being totally unworthy of existing. Scolding will not change the habit of smoking. It is the basic belief that must change first.

THE BREASTS represent the mothering principle. When there are problems with the breasts, it usually means we are “over mothering” either a person, or place, a thing, or an experience.

Part of mothering process is to allow the child to “grow up.” We need to know when to take our hands off, when to turn over the reins and let them be. Being overpositive does not prepare the other person to handle his or her own experience. Sometimes out “overbearing” attitudes literally cut off nourishment in a situation.

If cancer is involved, then there is also deep resentment. Release the fear and know the Intelligence of the Universe resides in each one of us.

THE HEART, of course, represent love, while our blood represents joy. Our hearts lovingly pump joy throughout our bodies. When we deny ourselves joy and love, the heart shrivels and becomes cold. As a result, the blood gets sluggish, and we creep our way to ANEMIA, ANGINA, and HEART ATTACKS.

The heart does not “attack” us. We get so caught up in the soap opera and dramas we create that we often forget to notice the little joys that surround us. We spend years squeezing all the joy out of the heart, and it literally falls over in pain. Heart attack people are never joyous people. If they do not take the time to appreciate the joys of life, they will just recreate another heart attack in time.

Heart of gold, cold heart, open heart, black heart, loving heart, warmhearted – where is your heart?

THE STOMACH digests all the new ideas and experiences we have. What or who can’t you stomach? What gets you in the gut?

When there are stomach problems, it usually means we don’t know how to assimilate the new experience. We are afraid.

Many of us remember when commercial airplanes first became popular. That we could get inside a big metal tube that would carry us safely through the sky was a new idea we found hard to assimilate.

At every seat, there were throw-up bags, and most of us were using them. We would throw up into our barf bags as discreetly as we could, wrap them up and hand them to the stewardess, who spent a lot of her time running up and down the aisle collecting them.

Now it is many years later, and though the bags are still at every seat, they are seldom used. We have assimilated the idea of flying.

ULCERS are no more than fear — tremendous fear of “not being good enough.” We fear not being good enough for a parent, we fear not being good enough for a boss. We can’t stomach who we are. We rip our guts apart trying to please others. No matter how important our job is, our inner self-esteem is very low. We are afraid they will find out about us.

THE GENITALS  represents the most feminine part of a woman, her femininity, or the most masculine part of a man, his masculinity; our masculine principle or our feminine principle.

When we do not feel comfortable with being either a man or a woman, when we reflect our sexuality, when we reject our bodies as dirty or sinful, then we often have problems in the genital area.

I seldom come across a person who was reared in a household where the genitals and their functions were called by their right names. We all grew up with euphemisms of one sort of another. Remember the ones your own family used? It could have been as mild as “down there,” to names that made you feel your genitals were dirty and disgusting. Yes, we all grew up believing that something was not quite right between our legs.

I feel the sexual revolution that exploded several years ago was in one way a good thing. We were moving away from Victorian hypocrisy. Suddenly it was okay to have many partners, and women became more open. Many of us began to enjoy the pleasure and freedom of our bodies in a new and open way.

However few of us thought to deal with what Roza Lamont, founder of the Self-Communication Institute, calls “Mama’s God.” Whatever your mother taught you about God when you were three years old is still there in your subconscious mind UNLESS you have done some conscious work to release it. Was that God an angry avenging God? What did that God feel about sex? If we are still those early guild feelings about our sexuality and our bodies, then we are surely going to create punishment for ourselves.

BLADDER problems, ANAL problems, VAGINITIS, and PROSTATE and PENIS problems all come under the same area. They stem from distorted beliefs about our bodies and the correctness of their functions.

Every organ in our body is a magnificent expression of life with its own special functions. We don not think of our livers or our eyes as dirty or sinful. Why do we then choose to believe our genitals are?

The anus is as beautiful as the ear. Without our anus we would have no way to release what the body no longer needs, and we would die very quickly. Every part of our body and every function of our body is perfect and normal, natural, and beautiful.

I ask clients with sexual problems to begin to relate to their rectum, penis, or vagina with a sense of love and appreciation for their function and their beauty. If you are beginning to cringe of get irate as you read this, ask yourself why. Our sexual organs were created as the most pleasurable part of our body to give us pleasure. To deny this is to create pain and punishment. Sex is not only okay, it is glorious and wonderful. It is as normal for us to have sex as it is for us to breathe or eat

Just for a moment try to visualize the vastness or the Universe. It is beyond our comprehension. Even our top scientists with their latest equipment cannot measure its size. Within this Universe there are many galaxies.

In one of these smaller galaxies in a far-off corner, there is a minor sun. Around this sun a few pinpoints revolve, one of which is called Planet Earth… watching my genitals!

Yet so many of us were taught this concept as a child.

It is vital that we release foolish, outmoded ideas that do not support us and nourish us. I feel strongly that even our concept of God needs to be one that is for us, not against us. There are so many different religions to choose from. If you have one now that tells you that you a sinner and a lowly worm, get another one.

I am not advocating that everybody run around having free sex at all times. I am saying that some of our rules do not make sense, and this is why so many people break them and become hypocrites.

When we remove sexual guilt from people and teach them to love and respect themselves, then they will automatically treat themselves and others in ways that are for their highest good and greatest joy. The reason we have so many problems with our sexuality now is because so many of us have self-hatred and self-disgust, and so we treat ourselves and others badly.

It is not enough to teach children in school and mechanics of sexuality. We need on a very deep level to allow children to remember that their bodies, genitals, and sexuality are something to rejoice about. I truly believe that people who love themselves and their bodies will not abuse themselves or others.

CHAPTER XIV   Part I

THE BODY

“I listen with love to my body’s messages.”

I believe we create every so-called illness in our body. The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. The body is always talking to us, if we will only take the time to listen. Every cell within your body responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak.

Continuous modes of thinking and speaking produce body behaviors and postures and “eases” or dis-eases. The person who has a permanently scowling face did not produce that by having joyous, loving thoughts. Older people’s faces and bodies show so clearly a life-time of thinking patterns. How will you look when you are elderly?

I am including in this section my list of Probable Mental patterns that create illnesses in the body, as well as the New Thought Patterns or Affirmations to be used to create health. They appear in my book Heal Your Body.  In addition to those short listings, I will explore a few of the more common conditions to give you an idea of just how we create these problems.

Not every mental equivalent is 100 percent true for everyone. However, it does give us a point of reference to begin our search for the cause of the dis-ease. Many people working in the alternative healing therapies use Heal Your Body all the time with their clients and find that the mental cause run 90 to 95 percent true.

THE HEAD represents us. It is what we show the world. It is how we are usually recognized. When something is wrong in the head area, it usually means we feel something is very wrong with “us.”

THE HAIR represents strength. When we are tense and afraid, we often create those bands of steel that originate in the shoulder muscles and come up over the top of the head and sometimes even down around the eyes. The hair shaft grows up through the hair follicle. When there is a lot of tension in the scalp, the hair shaft can be squeezed so tightly that the hair can no longer breathe, and it dies and falls out. If this tension is continued, and the scalp is not relaxed, then the follicle remains so tight that the new hair cannot grow through. The result is baldness.

Female baldness has been on the increase ever since women have begun entering the ‘business world” with all its tensions and frustrations. We are not aware of baldness in women because women’s wigs are so natural and attractive. Unfortunately, most men’s toupees are still discernible at quite a distance.

Tension is not being strong. Tension is weakness. Being relaxed and centered and peaceful is really being strong and secure. It would be good for us to relax our bodies more, and many of us need to relax our scalps, too.

Try it now. Tell your scalp to relax, and feel if there is a difference. If you notice that your scalp visibly relaxes, then I would suggest you do this little exercise often.

THE EARS represent the capacity to hear. When there are problems with the ears, it usually means something is going on you do not want to hear. An earache would indicate that there is anger about what is heard.

Earaches are common with children. They often have to listen to stuff going on in the household they really don’t want to hear. Household rules often forbid a child’s expression of anger, and the child’s inability to change things create an earache.

Deafness represents longstanding refusal to listen to someone. Notice that when one partner has a hearing impairment, the other partner often talks and talks and talks.

THE EYES represent the capacity to see. When there are problems with the eyes, it usually means there is something we do not want to see, either about ourselves or about life: past, present, or future.

Whenever I see small children wearing glasses, I know there is stuff goin on in their household they do not want to look at. If they can’t change the experience, they will diffuse the sight so they don’t have to see it so clearly.

Many people have had dramatic healing experiences when they have been willing to go back into the past and clean up what it was they did not want to look at a year or two before they began wearing glasses.

Are you negating what’s happening right now? What don’t you want to face? Are you afraid to see the present or the future? If you could see clearly, what would you see that you don’t see now? Can you see what you are doing to yourself?

Interesting questions to look at.

HEADACHES come from invalidating the self. The next time you get a headache, stop and ask yourself where and how you have just made yourself wrong. Forgive yourself, let it go, and the headache will dissolve back into the nothingness from where it came.

Migraine headaches are created by people who want to be perfect and who create a lot of pressure on themselves. A lot of suppressed anger is involved. Interestingly, migraine headaches can almost always be alleviated y masturbation if you do it as soon as you feel a migraine coming on. The sexual release dissolves the tension and the pain. You may not feel like masturbating then, but it certainly worth a try. You can’t lose.

SINUS problems, felt right in the face and so close to the nose, represent being irritate4d by someone in your life, someone who is close to you. You might even feel they are bearing down on you.

We forget that we create the situations, then we give our power away by blaming the other person for our frustration. No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for “we” are the only thinker in our mind. We create our experiences, our reality, and everyone in it. When we create peace and harmony and balance our mind, we will find it in our lives.

THE NECK AND THROAT are fascinating because so much “stuff” goes on there. The neck represents the ability to be flexible in our thinking, to see the other side of a question, and to see another person’s viewpoint. When there are problems with the neck, it usually means we are being stubborn about our won concept of a situation.

Whenever I see a person wearing one of those “collars,” I know this person is very self-righteous and stubborn about not seeing the other side of an issue.

Virginia Satir, the brilliant family therapist, said that she did some “silly research” and found that there are more than 250 different ways to wash dishes, depending upon who is washing and the ingredients used. If we are stuck in believing there is only “one way,” or ‘one viewpoint,” then we are shutting out most of life.

THE THROAT represents our ability to “speak up” for ourselves to ‘ask for what we want,” to say ‘I am,” etc. When we have throat problems, it usually means we do not feel we have the right to do these things. We feel inadequate to stand up for ourselves.

Sore throats are always anger. If a cold in involved, then there mental confusion, too. LARYNGITIS usually means you are so angry your cannot speak.

The throat also represents the creative follow in the body. This is where we express our creativity, and when our creativity is stifled and frustrated, we often have throat problems. We all know many people who live their whole lives for others. They never once get to do what they want to do. They are always pleasing mothers/fathers/spouses/lovers/bosses. TONSILITIS and THYROID problems are just frustrated creativity, resulting from not being able to do what you want to do.

The energy center in the throat, the fifth chakra, is the place in the body where change takes place. When we are resisting change or are in the middle of change or are trying to change, we often have lot of activity in our throats. Notice when you cough, or when someone else coughs. What has just been said? What are we reacting to? Is it resistance and stubbornness, or is it the process of change taking place? In a workshop I use coughs as a tool for self-discovery. Every time someone coughs, I have that person touch the throat and say out loud, “I am willing to change,” or “I am changing.”

THE ARMS represent our ability and capacity to embrace the experiences of life. The upper arms have to do with our capacity, and the lower arms have to do with our abilities. We store old emotions in our joints, and the elbows represent our flexibility in changing directions. Are you flexible about a changing direction in your life, or are old emotions keeping you stuck in one spot?

THE HANDS grasp, hands hold, hands clench. We store let things slip through our fingers. Sometimes we hold on too long. We are handy, tightfisted, openhanded, penny pinchers, butterfingers. We give handouts. We can handle ourselves, or we can’t seem to handle anything.

We put a handle on something. It’s hands down. It’s hands off, hanky panky. We give someone a hand, are hand in hand, it’s on hand or out of hand, underhanded or overhanded. We have helping hands.

Hands can be gentle or they can be hard, with knotty knuckles from overthinking, or gnarled with arthritic criticism. Grasping hands come from fear – fear of loss, fear of never having enough, fear that it won’t stay if you hold lightly.
Tightly grasping a relationship only has the partner run away in desperation. Tightly clenched hands cannot take in anything new. Shaking hands freely from the wrists gives a feeling of looseness and openness.

That which belongs to you cannot be taken from you, so relax.

Spirituality With Reiki — The Crown Chakra

October 17, 2009

reiki love light

Attain Spirituality With Reiki – The Crown Chakra

The uppermost chakra in the spiritual zone, is the crown chakra – right on the top of your head – and it resonates to the color white. (Violet and gold too, at times). But we prefer white, as it is symbolic of all the colors.

To energize this chakra, as with the sixth, eat all colors of the spectrum type foods… preferably raw and with mostly 70% water content and do chakra balancing as taught in your reiki seminar.

Now, as you are aware, we are a three-part being…

kundalinil

Body, mind and spirit.

Think of the body as representing happiness – the mind as representing joy and the spirit as representing peace.

Inner happiness comes when you meet the needs of your physical self… and it radiates outwards.

Inner joy comes when you meet the wants of your emotional self… and it radiates outwards.

Inner peace comes when you meet the desires of your spiritual self… when you follow the nature of who you are… and this radiates outwards too.

Bring all these aspects of yourself together and you can experience a state of blissful contentment…

And Reiki is tremendously helpful here.

Reiki makes you more of who you already are, and as you will come to understand… less, really is more.

As you expand, through Reiki, parts of you drop away – they are no longer important to you.

Suddenly this huge YOU is standing there, in all your glory.

You feel serene and confident… you don’t have to do anything – you simply are.

Everything becomes pleasurable and fun, because you choose it, and you are now fully aware of this…

You now know, that it is you who creates your reality. It is you – and no one else – who makes what happens happen.

Life is enjoyable.

Even the hard bits are more fun, because you no longer take things personally… you don’t take it all so much to heart, anymore.

Your life is now freer, less cluttered.

You have begun to understand that life is glorious, just the way it is…

That everybody is where they are at, right now, because – consciously or unconsciously – they chose to be there. In that very place, in that very position.

Everything is perfect – it can’t be any other way.

Your peaceful serenity will be like a beacon to others. And you will often find – more and more – that people are drawn to you in the midst of their own struggles.

From your vantage point, you may well be able to see the bigger picture for them. And…

You’ll find you can support and guide them, if necessary, but without having to get so emotionally involved.

You can see, quite clearly – and respect – that it is the person’s own choices and decisions that have brought them to this point – and you know it is exactly right for them.

At level seven, you are deeply connected to the divine. You realise that this is what physical life is all about…

The cut and the thrust.

You know that this is where everyone wants to be… in the thick of it… up to their elbows.

There are no accidents.

If they had really wanted to be leading a different life – then they would be leading it.

Everyone is free to choose – only most people don’t know it.

By choosing to love, honor and respect the spirit and nature of who you are – you can redefine your life.

With the right knowledge you can open any door.

With the right knowledge, you can have a happy, healthy body.

With the right knowledge, you can have a positive mental attitude, full of creative ideas.

With the right knowledge, your spirit will soar peacefully.

There is nothing to learn… all the knowledge is inside you right now. You just have to remember it – that’s all.

Rejuvenate Your Third Eye by Reiki

Rejuvenate Your Third Eye

Now we enter the realms of the spiritual.

Level six is our intuitive, knowing, focussing center. Our all seeing, panoramic vision, surround sound, home entertainment center.

seven chakras

It’s positioned in the middle of our brains… but most people refer to this center as the third-eye chakra and place it on the center of your forehead – just up and between your eyes.

This, of course, is only a symbolic position, but you’ll often see it portrayed like this in many books.

And the color…?

It resonates to that of royal blue/purple.

Eating foods from all colors of the spectrum are good, but preferably high water content – at least 70% – and mostly raw.

Okay then, let’s look a little deeper…

There is a balance that must be acheived here.

A mix between internal and external.

The start of actually beginning to see what has always been there, though you never noticed it before…

Reading the energy, seeing the aura, sensing the person, place, thing etc.

You have always absorbed this sort of energy subconsciously, but now with Reiki, you can bring it more to the fore – consciously.

But first you need a bit of peace and quiet, and this may take some practice.

Many wise people have said some quite… well, er, wise things.

For example – less is more. Look before you leap. See all, hear all and say nowt (English slang for nothing). All action stems from non-action etc.

And we’re going to practice some of these wise things now, to gain focus and inner silence.

  • Rule 1. Shut up. Shhh, not a word – it’s not necessary.
  • Rule 2. Listen. Shhh, not a word, be quiet – it comes as a whisper.
  • Rule 3. Slow down. Shhh, not a word. Right now there is nothing else you need ‘to do’. Just ‘be’ here, now.
  • Rule 4. Observe. Shhh, be silent.

Now, look again.

See the colors, movements, shadows, mannerisms, spaces, time, grass grow.

Hear the noise, silence, whispers on the wind, emotion on the breath, your inner voice…

Now you are connecting – the inner with the outer.

If you are a westerner you probably have trouble sitting still. But just taking time out to daydream is great.

When we suggest meditation to people we usually say – start your day just ten minutes earlier than anyone else gets up.

Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and just sit in quiet contemplation.

Ponder your thoughts, collect your thoughts, let your thoughts just wander.

Eventually you can increase the time you spend alone in this way to half an hour and then maybe even a full hour.

It will be time well spent…

For your head will begin to empty itself of unnecessary thoughts.

And using the Tibetan Raku Reiki symbol and running the energy – just for you – is a beautiful way to start the day. As you do this you could also carry out a self-healing or send energy to your goals. Just…

Allow your imagination to expand your boundaries.

You’ve de-cluttered your life, now you’re de-cluttering your mind.

It helps to do it daily, consciously with Reiki, until it becomes a habit.

So, where are we…

You’ve energized almost all your centers, but have you felt that the more energy you have, the slower you go? Have you also noticed that the less you do the more gets done?

What was so important to you before, is now much less so.

You’ll be able to focus your intention much more sharply without distractions…

You’ll do what you choose to do, because it feels right for you. You’ll feel the power of your intention. You’ll be quiet enough to sense any ‘discomfort’ with your decision, and wise enough to change course if necessary.

Touching base with meditation is great to keep you on course with your original intention, and the nature of who YOU are. But please, just touch base…

Remember you are a spiritual being already… fully enlightened, and already divine.

So, don’t spend all your time in meditation trying to become what you already are…

Get out and enjoy life physically. It is, after all, why you are here.

If you want to discover more of your latent abilities, run the Reiki instead…

The more regularly you practice running the Reiki, just for you, the more quickly your psychic abilities will develop.

The more you trust yourself and your feelings, the stronger they will become. You will be able to step-up your awareness instantly.

There is so much to be said at this level but it loses most of its meaning in the saying – so we’re not going to say any more…

Check it out yourself – practice, practice, practice – playfully of course, and see what happens. So…

Have fun, chill out and then have some more fun.

Reiki in Communication and Expression

Reiki in Communication and Expression.

It’s the fifth chakra and it resonates to the color blue…

A beautiful turquoise or sky blue. So just looking at a clear blue sky will help energise it.

 

kundalinilThis chakra lies in your throat region – roughly in the area of our larynx.

This is chakra of communication and expression.

And the fact that communication is the buzz word of the 21st century, is no accident either. For this is, energetically speaking, the level where the world is at right now.

The world’s own evolution is in its fifth chakra too.

But even though we are in this age of communication, not many people really know how to do it yet.

Information is shoved indiscriminately down our throats, all day long, so to speak. TV, radio, computers, books, newspapers, magazines, billboards etc.

Everybody and everything is yatter, yatter, yatter… and what happens – nothing – you just switch off.

It gets like you’re walking around in ear muffs and blinkers. Numbed to the world, not hearing or seeing anything. Next thing you know they turn up the volume…

Now you can’t even hear yourself think either.

All in all, not a lot of communication going on, is there? We have to get rid of all this extraneous noise.

Communication and expression is a two way thing.

Let us take a break from our daily routine and do as follows.

Notice the change of the seasons – the current fashions – the birds flying by – how rain runs down in rivulets down the window – and then… talk to the people around you.

You could even try doing something outrageous to complete strangers… smile.

Not a grimmacing, it’s too early to smile type smile either. Make it a genuine smile, a real hello smile.

This is not as dangerous as it sounds.

Yes, we know. If you listen to the news and read the papers, all those other people out there are murderers, muggers, rapists, perverts, terrorists, burglars and bandits etc.

We learn to live in fear of each other.

Believe it or not though, most people are just normal, ordinary, salt of the earth, decent folk like you.

There is a saying – ‘Smile and the world smiles with you’, and it’s so true. A smile is a real blessing to people.

In this day and age too many people seem to walk around with armor on. Almost needing credit checks and police protection before they can actually feel safe enough to talk to someone.

Well, we don’t.

A stranger is a new friend in the making to us. We smile and actually talk with people we don’t know, yes really.

We trust our instincts and intuitions.

Sure, some people are not to our liking. We don’t vibrate at the same level… we’re not on the same wave length, as it were.

But that’s not to say that a few moments quiet conversation won’t be helpful to us all.

You see, the throat center is where we discover how to ‘speak our truth’, but most of it is silent communication. In the stillness we are not only able to hear other people, but ourselves too.

The throat is between the head and the heart – between heaven and earth.

The 3rd eye and crown chakras are our spiritual centers – the above.

Our other five centers are our physical centers – the below.

Our throat is the meeting point, where we can speak out our inner thoughts… blend the inner and the outer… the above with the below.

Heaven with Earth.

When someone talks, listen to the words and also the silences. What was not said is important too.

Feel the emotion of what was said – what feeling did it provoke in you? What response?

Trust your gut feeling… that still small voice inside of you.

Less is definitely more when it comes to talking and expressing yourself.

This is true communication.

Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Speak only when you have something to say.

Can Reiki help here?

It can most certainly help with any anxiety you may have to be heard – to be taken notice of – to have your opinion count.

Try this.

Take a small blank card, like a business card, and write the word ‘smile’ on one side. On the other side draw the Usui Reiki Master symbol, for the fifth chakra.

Keep it to hand all day long.

When someone addresses you – smile – be as silent as you can.

How?

Make all the right noises – oh, ahh, mmmm… nod your head knowingly, smile, frown, raise your eyebrows etc.

But continue to listen, yes, to listen… not hear. Everyone hears but few really listen – you be an exception.

If you have to make a reply, think carefully – your words have power – words are thoughts made manifest.

So, hold your card and silently chant the symbols name three times – and when you speak, speak your truth – feel your power – own your power.

Communicate your truth – say what you mean and mean what you say.

Now, try giving up reading newspapers and watching TV for good.

Instead, communicate with your world, inside and out. But always be clear in what you are saying, don’t ever be vague

Activate Your Love by Divine Reiki

Activate Your Love

By Energizing Heart Chakra (Anahata)

Great, let’s go…

Let’s plunge straight into the heart of the matter, for level 4 corresponds to the heart chakra.

Now, this center doesn’t occupy the same position as your physical heart, as you’ve probably already guessed. No, it’s more central.

kundalinil

So, as a rough guide, find your breast bone… got it? Well, your heart chakra lies about half way down, but not on the surface, of course, it’s in the center mass of your body…

As, indeed, are all your energy centers, just in case you’re wondering.

Okay then, let’s get onto the color, it’s green, a beautiful emerald, fresh green, spring grass color.

Which makes it, perhaps, the easiest center to energise – for all you have to do is just walk in nature, and see all the greens…

Yes, that’s right, see the greens. Not look at the greens, actually see them. Usually people just look at nature, but without seeing it anymore. So really…

See the grass, the hills, the plants, the trees.

Then try… lying face down on your lawn, tickling your toes in the grass, growing fresh herbs, keeping pot plants etc, and also…

Wearing the color itself.

Eating your greens works wonders too. No, don’t wrinkle your nose, they really are good for you, honest. They resonate at just the right frequency.

Right then, have you implemented any of the suggestions made in the first 3 parts of this mini-course yet?

If you have, you may have found that you’re beginning to feel a little bit ‘full of yourself’. And this is quite alright…

Yes, really – it’s quite alright – and it’s something that should definitely be encouraged.

Why?

Because you’re slowly beginning to fill up with love. And as love is what you actually consist of… this kind of – ‘becoming full of yourself’ – is absolute perfection…

———————————————————–

Now…

As a tiny aside here – we rather like acronyms. And we have two for the word love.

Why two?

Because love is so vitally important. It really, really is – all there is.

Here they are:

  • Life’s
  • Only
  • Valuable
  • Experience
  • Life’s
  • Only
  • Valid
  • Expression

———————————————————–

And with this filling up comes a desire to share. You begin to overflow.

Are you noticing a soft smile is often on your face? Are you feeling content yet… like a cat with the cream? Your life may be getting clearer, happier and more focussed…

In fact to have made the kind of jumps we have been discussing, in the few days of this course, would be highly unusual.

Please allow us this ‘artistic license’ so we can get all the parts of the course to you, in a realistic time frame.

Just remember…

What can you do with all this loving energy?

You need to share, care and relate to others. Touch people with your heart, for when you do…

You’ll notice that people become spontaneously drawn to you – chatting at the shops, neighbors wanting to talk with you, animals coming over for a stroke…

Now, this does not mean that life goes all slushy – all huggy, huggy, kissy, kissy – no, no no…

It means you are confident, happy, focussed and serene…

Radiating a peaceful, loving, uplifting energy.

Shit may still happen of course, but you will react differently…

You’ll recognise it’s more and more the case that it’s “shift” that is happening.

Instead of just reacting to what happens in your life – you will now begin to respond…

You’ll be able to stand back and think to yourself, ‘What would be the loving thing to do right now, for me and for everyone else’.

If a situation is handled with love, the outcome will be for everyone’s highest good.

Using the Mental Emotional Symbol you can dissolve all the negativity around and send all the negative energy to source as love and light.

It will keep you balanced, focussed and confident.

At this level you will also feel more in tune with the other persons heart and you will just know what to do…

So, trust yourself.

Now, opening up your heart center can feel scary at times, as if you are wide open to attack – and indeed you can be – for a little while…

But don’t worry, you can protect yourself with Reiki.

Simply call upon the Reiki energy to fill you and surround you with love and protection – for your highest good and the highest good of all concerned.

What else can you do? Forgive… forgive?

Yes, forgive. Forgive anyone and everyone who wishes you any ill will… imagined or otherwise.

Forgiveness is a kindness we do for ourselves, for in this forgiveness you will see the struggle in others. And then you can bless them.

Bless them for coming into your life, for there are no accidents. They are in your life because you wanted them to be there…

Why?

So you can use them as a mirror. A mirror to see, how you don’t want to be (how poetical).

No, it’s not being judgemental or ‘better than’. It’s merely an observation, and you’ll find more and more that…

As you begin to understand this, you won’t need so much of it in your life anymore. Life will become more tranquil.

However, initially, you may find that…

Energizing the heart chakra can bring up lots of emotional stuff. And we do mean lots.

But that’s okay too. Allow it to come up and out. Don’t push it back down again. Express it.

How?

If you need to grieve – grieve. If you need to feel hurt – feel hurt. If you need to get angry – get angry.

But do it appropriately. Don’t allow your repressed anger to come up and then use it to hurt someone innocent. Go somewhere private, get a stick and beat the heck out of a cushion. Let all that anger, hurt, shame, blame etc, come pouring out and let it go.

Emotion is just energy in motion… allow it to move. Don’t bottle it up tight.

Use the Reiki to continually balance yourself and turn any of your negative emotions into positive ones.

Be gentle and loving with yourself.

It can be both rough and beautiful, sunshine and rain, laughter and tears, but most of all…

It will be, just as it should be.

Enjoy!

Giving and Receiving.

And this chakra, your third level, resonates to the color yellow.

Now, as with your first and second chakras, this center can also be energised with color. So wearing yellow is great. Not a dull yellow like mustard but a nice vibrant sunshine yellow…

In fact allowing the sun itself to shine on this area is extremely beneficial.

Yes, and you’re probably ahead of us by now, yellow foods are good too. Yellow peppers, lemons, bananas, grapefruit, sweetcorn etc.

Where is this chakra? Well…

Once again we’re going to be general in our indications of where it lies… and this is quite deliberate. We don’t want you getting unnecessarily caught up in the need to be precise.

kundalinil

For, you see…

These energy centers are not really a part of the physical body. They exist only in the etheric… precision, therefore, is not required.

Your intention to connect with them, is all that is necessary.

However, as a rough guide. Make a fist with your thumb sticking straight out across the top of your index finger. Lay your clenched fist flat against you chest and allow the top of your thumb to nestle in the notch at the base of your breast bone. The body of your fist is now in the general area.

Okay then, this third chakra is your gathering center which responds to the Distance symbol. And…

If you’ve ever had a shock – perhaps being told a close relative has suddenly died or you’ve been witness to an accident – you’ll know exactly where it is…

Because on hearing the news or seeing the trauma, it’s like a great canon ball thuds right into this area, simultaneously taking the wind right out of you, and flooding your system with emotion.

Have you ever experienced this?

If you have, you won’t need telling what a powerful receiver of energy this third chakra is… you’ll already know. But it is not just a receiver it’s also a grand transmitter of energy too.

So, balance here is essential… for as you give, so you really do receive… and sometimes very quickly.

Understanding the characteristics of this chakra then, allows you to see, quite clearly, how important it is to nurture the first two of your seven energy centers.

Because if you haven’t given to yourself first, then you won’t have anything to give to others…

The pot will be empty. So…

You must practice giving to number one – YOU – first.

Now don’t go getting all funny on us here. We don’t want you thinking… “No this isn’t right… it’s better to give, than to receive”…

For how can it be? It has to be equally good to do both.

If someone gives you a gift and you say, “Oh no, I couldn’t possibly accept”, and then refuse to take it. How do you think the giver of the gift feels?

It’s very limiting if you live only to give and not receive. Where on earth’s the balance in this way of being?

There is none. And you have to have balance in all things.

So let’s take a look at what you are giving out in your life right now… let’s look in the magic mirror.

Because – YOU – will be reflected back in everything that surrounds you in your world today.

That’s right. Everything you see when you open your eyes, is YOU.

You’ll see what you really think of yourself… what you really feel you deserve… what you really feel you are worth.

If you’ve settled for a job that doesn’t challenge and motivate you – perhaps it’s just pulling a lever all day – but it pays the rent.

Then that’s exactly what life will reflect back to you…

A life that doesn’t stretch you – bores you to death – in a house that’s adequate – but isn’t really what you want. Surrounded, most likely, with mediocre friends who don’t challenge or stretch you either.

Now remember –

You are living the life you’ve got right now, because you are the one who chose it… No one else did.

It must, therefore, be exactly as you want it to be.

So, if you’re now feeling it isn’t… then perhaps it’s time to change it. Yes, we know it may not be easy, but it is simple.

Start by deciding what you really, really want from life…

Do you want to receive more money?… then give more money to others. Do you want more love in your life?… then decide to give more love to others. Do you want more happiness in your life?… then give more happiness to others.

Now, as we just said… we know it isn’t easy… but it is simple. Simply choose and decide to give to receive. Then –

Lie or sit comfortably and, activating your palms with the Distance Reiki symbol, place one had over the other on your third chakra and run the energy.

Intend to give more – intend to receive more… and so it will be.

Can you see how it works yet?

Everything, everything, EVERYTHING reflects back to you what you give out through your feelings.

If you are putting out the feelings of being a failure, guess what’s going to be reflected back to you?

On the other hand if you are feeling successful… what’s going to come back?

You’ve got it – success, success, SUCCESS.

It can be no other way. Cause and effect – whatever you put out, comes back to you… with interest added on.

So please look into your magic mirror… your magic mirror called LIFE.

Yes, really. Do it now.

Check it out, check it all out… your life, your work, your income, your home, your relationships, vacations, car, clothes, kids.

It’s a true reflection of how you feel about yourself right now… the outer reflects the inner.

Is this reflection of your life truly the one you want it to be? Only you know the answer, and you must remember…

You can have, be and do anything you choose in life… anything.

So don’t settle for second best, choose wisely…

And use Reiki. It makes you more of who you are.

Activate Your Swadhistan Chakra

Reiki for Pleasure, fun and creativity.

Activating the Swadhistan Chakra

Level two resonates to the color orange and relates to the reproductive organs. Now… Chakras one and two are constantly being mixed up with each other. And the exact positioning of each one depends entirely on the school of thought you are listening to at the time…

kundalinil

But, for us, the exact positioning is quite unimportant. Your intention is the only important thing. If you are intending to run the Reiki energy through your first Chakra (coccyx, rectal area)…

Then that is where the energy will flow.

If you are intending to run the energy through your second Chakra (genital area) – then that also – is where it will flow.

Your intention rules… always and all ways.

Energizing this second chakra, is similar to that of your first, only this time you use the color orange. Orange underwear, orange trousers, orange skirt etc.

And you can also eat foods of this color… carrots, oranges, orange peppers and the like.

Now, as for the Reiki… Again, you can use the same exercise as with your first chakra. So…

Lie or sit, and rest your hands low down on your abdomen or, if you find it comfortable enough, over your genital area itself.

Activate the Mental and Emotional symbol and simply allow the energy to run for as long as you want or need…

You’ll know when you’ve had enough because you’ll probably find yourself getting fidgety.

Of course, if you plan to run the energy at night before sleeping, it’s quite okay to just carry on running it until you drift off into dreamland.

So, how will this affect you..?

Plenty, we hope. For allowing as much pleasure and fun into your life should be of paramount importance. And this pleasure and fun should most definitely underpin all your creative endeavours.

If you are a woman… the womb is the center of your creativity, the seat of your power. If you are not using this energy internally – as in creating babies – you need to be expressing it externally – as in…

Writing, drawing, painting, interior designing, flower arranging… anything – just being creatively creative will keep the energy flowing strongly and smoothly.

Why would you want to do this?

Because if you don’t allow your creative energy to flow it can become blocked or out of balance, and this can lead to problems.

What kind of problems?

Well, blocked creative expression can lead to frequent headaches, foggy thinking, depression, problems with your womb and even vision disturbances (as in not being able to see a clear path ahead) etc.

There are other ways these imbalances can show up, of course, but we think that’s enough for you to get the flavor of what we mean.

If you’re a man… the same applies. You need to be creative too…

Maybe not with the flower arranging perhaps… but then again… well, who knows.

A man who is confident in himself exudes a powerful, sensual energy. He is the mature male.

A woman who is confident in herself is like a ship in full sail – magnificent, graceful, sensual, magic.

And it all stems from allowing the creative energy to flow. Which also includes, by the way, the most powerful and fundamental of your creative energies… sexual expression. Give yourself full permission to experience and deeply enjoy everything about this natural, creative and wholly, satisfying energy.

Okay then…

So what else can Reiki do to help generate this feeling of balance and the ‘at oneness with life’ feeling?

Well, at this level we need to center on clearing away those things, situations and people that throw us out of balance…

For instance, the job that’s not right, the relationship that only ‘sort of’ works, the friends that aren’t really…

In fact clear out anything and everything in your life which does not bring you fun, pleasure and enjoyment.

There is no easy way to do this ‘de-cluttering’ of your life. But Reiki will certainly help you to choose what is right for you. It will help guide you towards that which is your hearts desire. So by…

The more fun, pleasure and creativity there is in your life the more powerful and free you feel…

The lighter your thoughts, the more clarity of vision you have.

Let’s trust that you know what’s right for you – and that only you know what’s right.

Then you’ll begin living the life you chose – pleasurably, creatively and with an immense amount of fun.

Reiki for Safety and Security

October 12, 2009

reiki principles

Reiki for Security and Safety.

The role of root chakra in Reiki practice

Safety and security in our life is achieved through running Reiki energy into our base chakra (mooladhar chakra also called sacral chakra).

Whatever it is in life, it’s always best to start in at the very beginning. That way you gain the most out of every single event.

Now, not only is this true for almost everything you’ll come across in life, but it’s doubly true with Reiki.

So, let’s…

Start in on the ground floor level and work our way up to a greater understanding of… life, the universe and all who sail in her.

Okay then, you probably already know, and have maybe even experienced first hand yourself, that :-

You are, indeed, a three-part being (body, mind and spirit) and all the parts are inter-connected. You cannot touch on one level without touching and affecting the other levels too.

Now, bearing this in mind, we are going to try and simplify things – starting at the bottom – literally.

kundalinil

The area at the base of the spine, which includes the rectal area, is the rough position of your 1st Chakra… and it resonates to the color red.

You can do a couple of practical things to energise this area. like wearing red underwear; eating red foods like tomatoes, red peppers, radishes, beetroot etc. And you can also…

Use your Reiki.

Simply lie in bed at night and activate the Power symbol on both of your palms. Rest your hands on your abdomen, and beam the energy through to the base of your spine.

You could also place both hands, palm up, in the area of your coccyx so that you are actually lying on them. But you’ll probably find this becomes too uncomfortable after only a few minutes…

So, as the whole thing is to be comfortable enough to drift off to sleep whilst allowing the energy to run – the first method is probably the best one to adopt.

How will you feel when you wake up?

More grounded, relaxed and happy. Why?

Because this area is all to do with feelings of safety and security – no matter what the actual words safety and security may personally mean to you.

For you, it may mean something simple like having lots of food in the cupboard in case of disaster. Or it may be more complex like having several million dollars in the bank.

It really doesn’t matter. For you see…

When you relax and trust the universe to take care of you, it no longer becomes such a scary place to be.

You begin to realise that just for today – you have a roof over your head, food on the table and a couple of dollars in your pocket.

Life is great… all your primary needs are being met.

Eventually you will also begin to realise that you have always managed to provide these things for yourself.

Yes, sometimes it may have just been by the skin of your teeth, but you are still here. You managed it.

And there’s no real reason to think this will ever stop.

Running the Reiki energy through this Chakra will help open you up to this understanding…

Allowing you to trust in yourself and the universe.

Any issue in your life that makes you feel insecure can be dealt with by using Reiki. Whether it’s:

  • Redundancy
  • Retirement
  • Relationship break up
  • Threat of war
  • Abandonment
  • Supermarket closure
  • Loneliness
  • Natural disasters
  • Pregnancy
  • Falling out with a friend
  • Debt
  • Death of a relative etc. etc. etc.

Sending Reiki through your base chakra, as described above, will help to balance these feelings, any feelings, of insecurity you may have.

Just send Reiki and know the issue will be resolved for your highest good, and the highest good of all concerned…

Then comes the hard part – trust in the outcome.

Even if, right now, a negative solution seems to be presenting itself.

Just continue to trust.

For in a few short weeks you will almost certainly be looking back, thinking, ‘If things hadn’t happened exactly like they did, it just wouldn’t have been right’.

Sometimes, though, when you’re in the middle of what seems to be an enormous problem, and you’re beginning to doubt yourself…

And feelings of insecurity are rampant. Don’t face it alone. Enlist some divine help…

But don’t settle for second best, (angels and fairies etc) go right to the top.

Ask God.

Get out your pen and paper and write a letter to God:

Dear God,

I’ve done all I can do about (whatever the problem is). Will you please do the rest.

Thanks.

Now, draw your Reiki symbols on the letter, put it somewhere safe… and forget about it – the problem we mean.

Because it will soon be sorted.

This method works…

It works by literally and symbolically putting the problem to one side, and gently removing you from the picture.

Ready for another hard part?

Leave it alone.

If you catch yourself worrying – STOP. God is sorting it, and if God can’t sort it, it’s a pretty poor do. Trust in the outcome…

It’ll be for your highest good – because that was what you intended.

So, use your Reiki in this way on all your issues of insecurity, and work on building this solid foundation of trust.
