Love and light,
I have been practicing Reiki for many years now. Every time I help someone to heal themselves, I am also healing something inside of myself. I've been on a healing journey for many many years now, and Reiki is where it all began! Reiki knows no time, distance, or space, so it can even be sent to a future event, such as a job interview or an important exam in the future. It can be sent to a person who will be undergoing surgery, before, during, or after to assist in the relaxation process and aid in the bodies own natural healing process after the surgery. I've sent Reiki to a room full of yogi's during the Savasana part of our practice. I've even sent Reiki to people I've seen while driving who've been in an accident. Reiki can be sent to any stressful or unpleasant situations in your life to alleviate any difficulties you may have, or it can just be used as a wonderful healing energy to enhance your daily life!
This year, I've been using a Reiki Healing Box for my friends and family. Quite simply, it's Distant Reiki for the many healing needs of all of those that I love and can't be physically in front of daily. I put the names of those that need healing in the box, and I send Reiki Energy to the box daily. This, in turn, is sending healing energy to all those people that are in need of healing, that I list in the box. If you or someone you know could use some daily healing, allow me to give them or you the gift of healing; sign up on the form below and put the recipient's name at the bottom! If there's a special need you know of, please put that in with the recipient's name.

Light & Love!
First I have to say, I am a metaphysical girl. What do I mean by that? I am a spiritual being; I belief in Angels, Energy Healing, the Power of Crystals, then Energy of the Earth, and a Higher Power. One of the loves of my life, my 25 year old son, is an engineer. He's a science guy. While I love him with all of me and love to debate with him often about the differences in our beliefs, it makes me really check into things that I believe in so that I can have an intelligent sparring match about certain topics with him. One of those topics of our disputes was the Himalayan Salt Lamp. The benefits stated below are in fact found, but on such a small scale, that I could not find documented scientific evidence.
This is what just one Himalayan salt lamp company touts: Emits negative ions that fight against electromagnetic radiation and fights fatigue and sluggishness; It also increases the flow of oxygen to the brain, protects against airborne germs, increases work productivity and creativity, improves bone strength, soothes allergies; Sleep better & wake refreshed.
First, Electromagnetic Radiation is emitted from your TV, computer, cell phones and all electronics that seem to be attached to our hips and in some cases used in our daily lives more than 10 hours out of our day. These daily emission of electromagnetic radiation contributes to lowering the melatonin levels within our bodies. Lets look at why melatonin is so important to us. Melatonin plays an important role in the sleep cycle, sometimes called “The Dracula” of hormones as it only comes out at night. Lower levels of melatonin affect your immune system, your mental health, and is the regulator of sex hormone production. This is huge. Melatonin deficiencies have shown in patients with cancer, heart disease, ulcers, and even Alzheimer's. I personally had a low level of Melatonin when I lost my thyroid and my sleep was disrupted regularly. Aside from the issues of not having a thyroid, not being in the right mind as well due to lack of sleep and proper necessary hormone levels throughout the body was truly awful.
When the heat from the salt lamp warms the crystal, a negative electrical charge is emitted, ionizing our atmosphere, which in fact helps to neutralized harmful EMF radiation. Just imagine though, this small Himalayan Salt Lamp and the huge amounts of electronics that we surround ourselves with daily. Negative Ionization is truly a benefit here, but, unless you are a person who is off the grid, so to speak, the electromagnetic radiation of all of these electronics, far outweigh any negative ions the salt lamp can produce. You can certainly do better for yourself here and put a salt lamp in every room you spend a considerable amount of time in, including your office, which might be significantly favorable in the hormone department of your body.
Secondly, negative ions are proven to increase the oxygen in our brain and other organs, as well as boosting the serotonin levels which results in higher mental energy and alertness, and makes us feel happy. It's for this reason that most people feel more refreshed and happy while at the beach....Running water is considered the world's greatest source of negative ions. While with this lamp, we're talking about just a small amount of negative ions in your home or work space. But doesn't that account for something? In my world and belief system, every little bit of good you do for yourself is growth to all of you; physically, mentally, and spiritually. And every little bit of kindness you give to yourself, is negating (even if just a minute amount), the toxicity that surrounds us on a daily basis.
Thirdly, the salt lamps are also said to be Hydroscopic which means it attracts water vapor from the air to it. In attracting the water vapor, along with that vapor, it's also attracting things trapped inside the water molecules like mold, bacteria, allergens, and other contaminants improving our air quality by trapping it to them into the salt crystal. Talk to the person who has severe allergies, or severe asthma and see how they feel about improved air quality. To them, even the tiniest amount of improvement can be expressed as monumental in their ability to breath and feel well because they are getting more oxygen to their brain than usual during allergy season. Personally speaking on allergies and someone who is allergic to dust; I work in an office building that is not always properly cleaned or air purified as maybe I would do to my own home, and this is life altering daily, not just allergy season.
Salt lamps may even help with SAD – seasonal affective disorder. Due to the soft orange hues and soothing colors reminiscent of a sunshine effect, they tend to be calming and increase can even increase clarity and focus of daily chores or work that sometimes gets to be overwhelming during this time. Some people suffering from SAD have been starting to put these lights on timers to relax the mind during a time of less sunlight. Again, it may not be a cure all but any bit of relief is better than no relief, and this is all natural.
So this is my own personal hypothesis. Just as being on a beach with the salt air, helps many people feel and breath better, so too, does the salt lamp. While they may not may an enormous difference in negative ions, a benefit is a benefit and better than none at all. Salt lamps definitely don't hold a candle to an air purification system, but much like the relief attained by breathing in the salt air at the seashore, it can be an additional healing asset in your life. Truly, the way I see it is, you absolutely could be a “glass half empty” kind of person, and don't want to hear about any of these so-called “tiny” perks because you consider them to be too insignificant to care about. That is definitely your right, but in my opinion, any slight improvement to your health, mind, & body, is worth it, because YOU are worth it!! Lastly, with the aesthetics alone, you have can add a salt lamp to any room to serve merely as a beautiful accent piece.
I'd love to hear what experience you may have with a salt lamp. Immediately, when I got mine, I noticed a difference in my breathing as well as my energy level, which I'll be honest, truly did surprise me. I just love mine!!
Reiki can balance trauma and the benefits of Reiki can help people undergoing surgery just the same. It will always heal them heal faster, than without it. Our bodies were designed to heal themselves. When your body is traumatized though surgery, Reiki treatments can sooth the shock to your system and optimizes your body's innate ability to heal itself.
One of the greatest Reiki healing benefits is its stress reduction and relaxation, which ties to the body's own natural healing ability. Our bodies were made with the ability to heal themselves naturally. Stress, worry, and emotional upset are held in the mental and emotional bodies, which block your energy source causing aches, pains, and disease to manifest in the physical body. Reiki or "energy work" can clear these blockages and allow life's energy force to freely flow, enhancing your own body's natural healing powers.
Reiki treatments are ideal before, during, and after surgery. Administering Reiki prior to surgery can help one prepare their mind and body for the procedure. Reiki, helping to reduce stress and tension, places the body in its optimal state for its own natural healing.
A Reiki treatment during the surgery will help to reduce stress levels on the body and support the body's ability to undergo the procedure. This can be done in a distance Reiki session. I've performed many distance Reiki sessions where I sit in a quiet place and perform the treatment as if the person is right in front of me. I'm still amazed every time someone reports back the results of those sessions. Click here to read more on those.
Anyone who's had any type of surgery can tell you that the pain you may wake up with can be pretty intense. Reiki treatments after the surgery can help the pain subside immediately and help create the perfect balance in your body conducive to quicker healing. One Reiki medicine article suggests that when you practice on someone hooked up to monitors after the surgery, the benefits of Reiki are often measurable. You may see improved heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. This is huge, especially when you're talking about preventing post-surgical complications.
A neighbor of mine went through an adult removal of tonsils surgery. One of her comments was, "It was warm and soothing over my throat/neck area. The strangest thing was that after the treatment, I felt relaxed and pain-free instantly." My Reiki experience was shortly after I had my thyroid removed, which brought me awful side effects. Reiki helped me personally after my surgery. I feel blessed to have had a healer. She has touched my life in more ways than one.
Do you have an experience of surgery with Reiki that you'd like to share? I'd love to hear about it.
Live, Laugh, & Love
Since I was a little girl, I remember my life being about pain; witnessing the physical abuse of my mother from my alcoholic father and the mental abuse coming from my abused mother at her children. As a child it's just so hard to witness all of this and learn that it's not right, first and foremost. The hardest part may very well be the anger and feeling that the only two people in the world you feel you can trust, would seemingly put a child, THEIR child, through this kind of pain. This is gut wrenching emotional pain that stays with you until you can figure it out and learn how to let it go and forgive. So then eventually you learn how to forgive, and move on but the scars left behind within that child never disappear.
Something every day can bring that emotional baggage back to the surface and it haunts you like it was yesterday. Many years later, and having had enough love and good in my world to realize the other side, and what life should be, I am lead to constant healing in my world today. Every day of my life, with it's ups and downs, have been one big process of healing the wounds of the child I once was. Having been that child, I struggle every day with the darkness I've lived and can touch the pain and sadness like it was yesterday.
The child I once was has since learned that I can love and be loved unconditionally in my now world. I no longer need the love and acceptance of the parents who didn't even love themselves enough to be able to show that to another. The periods of growth and healing in my life began when I was 17 with writing as my outlet and the pain as my muse. The outcome... healing! To this day I continue the healing process with my writing. My writing started out as poems to just release these raw emotions that I didn't know what to do with. The release of the emotions help me in a way so that the sadness and pain is just not as open and raw as it was when I was a child.
We all have a story in this world, and as I've said, aside from Reiki healing, writing is my healing process. Every now and again, I'll be posting my poems and some writings that have helped me. Maybe they can help you or someone you know. Or, please, if you have somethings that helps you in your life, please share it. Not only do I continuously help heal myself, but I love to be able to help others as well.
If you are in need of some healing and haven't tried writing, sit with a pad, pencil, an open mind, and see what you come up with. Some of my best healing and most creative stuff has come out this way.
See below one of my first poems that started my writing and pain releasing process in 1990. Throughout the years, my writings have gotten me to a much healthier place...a place of healing and love.
And as always, live, love, and laugh often!
Open your Eyes
Keep your eyes open and never look away,
you never know what might try to hurt you some day.
Keep your eyes open without a second thought,
Never trust, is what I was always taught.
Keep your eyes open and look to your goals,
so you don't fall into any given holes.
Keep your eyes open no matter what tries to stop you,
and the goals you can't reach, will be very few.
Keep your eyes open and never bat an eye,
before someone tries to take what's yours without even a sigh.
Keep your eyes open and never look down,
always be ready to stand your ground.
Keep your eyes open and don't ever be naive,
or someday, a great loss you will grieve.
Keep your eyes open and always look ahead,
you'll never get anything accomplished by staying in bed.
Keep your eyes open no matter what has got you down,
don't give anything the satisfaction of an unpleasant frown.
Keep your eyes open but try not to be cold,
because bitterness is a very sad thing for someone to hold.
