Skin Care is Essential

Essentials of Skin Care

Our skin is the largest part of our nervous system. We have a wide variety of touch receptors to alarm our body of threats; chemical, physical and mechanical. Our skin also is a direct route to our blood stream. One indirect and subconscious way of treating certain dis-eases may be achieved through the skin. A practice I utilize daily for integrating plant medicine into my body, is through use of topical essential oils.

Essential oils are powerful. There are many opinions on whether they cure dis-eases or can be harmful to the body if ingested or applied incorrectly. The basic school of thought when dealing with aromatic compounds is, less is more.

Dilution

Different age groups, demographics and species are compatible with different doses and combinations. Elderly, pregnant women and infants should only use a 1% dilution or less.

11D Chakras Heart Bridge Rei-Ki

Rei-Ki

Promotion of EASE,

As humans, we have conditioned ourselves to live in a 3-Dimensional reality — a material world based on Fear. We put so much emphasis and value on accumulating stuff and then we go in a cycle of worrying about losing the stuff we value. We develop anxiety disorders, depression and anger when we lose our “things” and then our health, in turn follows our thoughts. We see the world through a lens of “us vs. them” and we begin to compete for survival. We manipulate ourselves and those around us to get our needs met, we cheat and we lie to feel instant gratification, and we view the world through an egotistical lens of “Me versus the World.” We begin to only feel happy when we buy more shit and we condition ourselves to buy our happiness. 

Having shit to be happy is also like saying “no-thing is enough” and so we become victims to the world of cause and effect. “If I don’t have enough money… then this…. If only I had more money…. then this.” It’s time to change our value system — as Dr. Joe Dispenza says “It’s time to cause an effect.” How do we let go of valuing ourselves based on the “stuff” we have?

What does it mean to have “Ease?” To be preventative towards states of “Dis-ease?” For a Reiki practitioner the answer seems simple — shine more light on the matter. To avoid Dis-Ease is to practice preventative methods and lifestyle choices which support optimal health and vitality. To practice preventive ways of overcoming “Dis-Ease” before it has the potential of existing would mean to view time as non-linear. This would also suggest, we each have a major role to play in our ownership of health. 

This is a time for greatness —

 

If we are to move away from the victim model of suffering, it is highly suggested we move towards a model of ownership and acceptance over our choices and physical bodies. Our physical body is a student and our pain is our teacher. Once we choose to learn the lesson coded in the pain — we can move beyond the victim-mindset and programming. We are the creators and manifestors of our own lives, our only limits are our imaginations. 

Is time linear? If time is linear — then how can we transport our minds back into a space of memory which takes us out of the present moment? If time is seen as non-linear it allows you to perceive time in a way that we can bend and use as a portal of healing.

Akashic Records 

 

Once time is viewed as non-linear, it holds a deeper understanding of the fabric of energy and how it can be extended beyond our vessels and minds, beyond space and time. Suppose someone is sick and calls while in another time zone. This loved one is someone you hear as very distraught, very dis-eased. You begin talking with them in a soothing tone, you lower your voice so that it is more calm and grounded. After 30 minutes you hear Ease coming through in the tone of their voice, you sense they are feeling less upset and more comforted after sharing energy with you. Now, did the energy you sent travel back/forth in time? Did the Ease in your voice allow space for Ease to be transmuted? What then, are the limitations of energy transferance? No — the only limitations are our imaginations. 

In order to see life unfold outside of linear time, one also sees human beings as more than meat and bones — We are entities of light, love and spirit and our energy. Energy when in motion, free of pain and consciousness blocks, can move through us and to us beyond space and time. So what does this mean to apply such a metaphysical and energetic approach to healing? 

It means moving away from living and thinking in a Material 3-Dimensional World of Fear by instead embracing the 5-D Plane of Light. This Plane is built on unconditional love and abundance, which then manifest in the physical. It is a dimension of the mind, beyond space and time, where you are integrated with your Higher Self and there is no space for guidance by your Ego. Living and thinking in 5-D allows healing of all mental, emotional and physical bodies. Thinking in this dimension allows you to trust in the unfolding of the unknown and universal flow of energy. 

This philosophy takes into account each person’s path of healing is as unique to them as their thumbprint, thousands of modalities and billions of philosophies on “health” and “wellness” and what it means to be “thriving.” In this newsletter we will be discussing Reiki as a non-invasive energetic metaphysical approach to promoting “ease” and guidance of restoring flow to energetic blocks in one’s 

The character “Reiki” (pronounced RAY-kee) is a Japanese word for Divine Light (Rei) and Universal Life Force (Ki). The art of Reiki is the opening and channeling of this specific frequency of Spiritual Energy through the practitioner’s hands and is the heart of this synergistic approach. Reiki is non-invasive, is safe for everyone and anyone, does not deplete the giver or receiver and can be channeled to all living things. Although Reiki is a hands-on healing technique, it may be channeled to a recipient both in-person, and long-distance. 

Practicing Reiki simultaneously promotes recharging and rebooting the body’s system in a loving and compassionate way in both the giver and receiver. The practitioner puts their own ego aside in order to channel the Reiki — it will always go where it is needed. When focusing on where hand placement is most appropriate, the practitioner utilizes a biomagnetic map of the body to clear and transmute the blockage of energies. 

Tapping into the flow of Reiki is dependent on the intention of the Receiver, the openness of the Giver, and the focus and connection to Breath. When energies are in motion, emotion is felt. When we ignore feeling and releasing an emotion, these energies and choose to hold onto them, they can block the flow of energies, causing physical pain and dis-ease. This all sounds so wild… right? Or does it? 

The Practitioner utilizes a biomagnetic map of the body to guide the blockage of energies. Reiki utilizes the 7 Major Chakras as a biomagnetic map of the body’s patterns of energy to balance, clear and transmute energy blockages and stains which can lead to DIS-EASE. 

The 7 Major Chakras correlate to major glands and groups of nerves, or plexi. Our immunity is governed by our neuroendocrinological systems, the balance of our homones and autonomic nervous systems are dependent on the energies of these systems maintaining movement and communication. When a person is experiencing chronic stress, depression, hormone imbalances or anxiety; the body is communicating that there is a barrier to the regulatory system. 

DIS-EASE___ rampid fight-or-flight systems activated

 

Reiki promotes EASE. Nervous System… Rest versus Flight

Our bodies have a relaxation response which can be measured using biofeedback, monitoring blood pressure and checking saliva samples for levels of Immunoglobulin A proteins and cortisol levels. Results from one study from 2002, showed the Receiver may experience a decrease in systolic blood pressure, increase in skin temperature, decrease in anxiety, increase in Immunoglobulin A in saliva and decrease in EMG readings during treatment. IgA is plays an important role in immune function of our mucous membranes, lower IgA levels means decreased immune function. Cortisol is the body’s main stress hormone and is a natural alarm system for the body. Higher levels of cortisol directly relate to stressors causing DIS-EASE. 

In Reiki I the practitioner learns the hand positions and in Reiki II they are given symbols to further promote healing. The intention of the practitioner is to channel the Rei-Ki (universal energy) into the client with the intention of working with Major chakras to allow the optimal flow of Reiki from Giver to Receiver. In Reiki III, the student is given the Master symbols and may begin initiating new practitioners into their specific lineage.

Distance doesn’t Matter because everything is energy. 

Reiki is a verb, not a belief system.
