The following reference is taken from The Reiki Association. Reiki pronounced (ray-key), it is Japanese for life force energy. Reiki is not linked to any religious practice. There are no known side effects. It is also a used to describe a system of natural energy healing.
Reiki is used to balance and correct the heart & mind, keeping the body healthy and create a happy life using life force energy humans were born with, however this energy can become supressed due to many factors we experience, think or feel.
We live in a world where energy nourishes and maintains all living things. When we have a balance with this energy, harmony and wellbeing are experienced. Reiki helps balance mental, physical and emotional in-balance. Reiki is beneficial to physical, emotional and mental illnesses, such as depression, fatigue, chronic pain, and anxiety. It is safe and effective.
As humans we have experiences throughout life that can leave us with negative energetic memory, this results in energy blockages leading onto physical, mental and emotional stress. Low self-worth, low self-esteem, and lack of confidence can be some of the emotional and mental areas we feel and live with on a daily basis. We can hang onto dense energy for too long, we don’t know how to let it flow. Reiki energy healing can help release such blockages.
The human body is made of chemical elements, we need chemistry for the function of our body to keep us alive. For instance, the heart, lungs and cells, require energy to function, and where do we get this energy? Mainly from the food we eat. When we think about food, it is our nourishment and essential for the upkeep of our body. Yet a lot of people struggle with this concept and have an un-balanced relationship with it. I do believe, my opinion, that a lack of education and understanding play a part in this, as the media confuse and complicate what we should eat. However other factors such as, genetics, culture, and our environment also contribute.
Everything is energy, even our thoughts are energy. How many times have you eaten a cake or treat and punished yourself about it? This then sends a dense energetic signal to your body, dense energy blocks and slows down our positive life force energy, which then over time creates physical in-balance on our wellbeing mind & body. There is a lot of research available on the gut / brain connection. It’s said that we have 2 brains, one in our gut and our head. Food for thought, if you pardon the pun. Maybe a topic for later?
If you think in terms that food is “good” nourishment and essential for your body you may have different ideas about how you think about food. Now this means that you have to be sensible, eating fish & chips 7 days a week is not “good nourishment”, however, everything in moderation is responsible. So, if your being responsible when you have a treat, tell yourself that! You will enjoy it a lot more. With this in mind, whilst on Slim & Save you can be assured that you are providing your body with enough nourishment, vitamins and minerals for healthy effective weight loss. Then once maintaining, you can carry on the “good nourishment” concept to keep the weight off.
There is no scientific research suggesting Reiki is directly linked with weight loss, however the effects of balancing the body and mind can have a huge impact on our general wellbeing for the examples given above. The overall energetic balance you have with yourself is the biggest, most valuable gift you possess, and I say you as its “you” that takes responsibility for what you eat and how you think and feel about the choices you make.
I hope my explanation and passion for energy has been helpful. The benefits of viewing our bodies holistically is fascinating and very beneficial. Please feel free to comment below and if you would like further guidance or direction to any area mentioned.
