DID YOU KNOW.......MEDITATION QUIETS THE MIND NOISE??

In the LOVE month.....I just wanted to talk about why it is very important to have a daily Meditation time to love self!  Meditation can be used very effectively to quiet all the racing thoughts....that mind noise that runs through our thoughts daily making us feel stress and anxiety.  Everyday, we are bombarded with things we should be doing.....places we should be going.....status that we absolutely need to "get in where you fit in". Society has conditioned humans to believe that if you are not following the standards that they create......you are a FAILURE!!  We know that is just not true......BUT...yet and still, we are constantly comparing ourselves to the unrealistic standards. This is where a Meditation Love Session can become your favorite buddy!!

Meditation is quieting the Mind Noise and allowing the brain to be still and take a break. It is not Prayer nor does it have anything to do with Religion. There is no better way to reduce stress, nervousness and anxiety than by having a daily Meditation Love Session.  Meditation is a powerful  tool that makes the racing thoughts come to a stop and not move the body into a stressful state of mind!!  It is a relief of the mind that is so sweet that once you start doing it on a regular basis, you will wonder why you have not been doing it all along!! It is a way that you can start to give yourself the unconditional LOVE from the inside out.  Here is just a really easy way to learn to have a Meditation Love Session with yourself:

1- Find a quiet space where you can have some time for yourself- all you need to start is 15 minutes a day.

2- Light a candle and some incense which is very helpful to focus your mind and calm the brain.

3- In your mind, call this time your Meditation Love Session-where you are going to pamper yourself with unconditional self love.

4- Stay focused on the candle and begin to build a reserve of love on the inside with conscious self care-It is very good for you!

5- Ask yourself the question....Am I breathing? Start focusing on breathing in thru your nose and out of your mouth-soft and easy. In the beginning your mind will fight you to keep spinning with thoughts, but just keep listening to yourself breathe and when the thoughts try to fly in....Ask yourself the question again. As your mind calms down you will be able to hear your breathing get louder because the mind noise is at rest.....that is how you know that you are quieting the mind noise.

6- Take some time while you are breathing to reflect of the things that you are Grateful for in your life while breathing in.

7- While you are exhaling thru your mouth-blow out all negativity that gets on your nerves each day.

8- Continue breathing in and out......watching the white light in the candle and smelling the incense. They are designed to keep you in the present moment.

9- Before closing out your Meditation Love Session- Reflect on what you are doing to become a powerful source of TRUE LOVE to yourself.

10- Close the Meditation Love Session by being thankful for the opportunity to be conscious about slowing your mind noise down, reducing your stress and taking the time to be in love with YOU!

BE GRATEFUL FOR YOU!!

DID YOU KNOW.......REIKI IS A LIFE FORCE ENERGY MODALITY??

First, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope that everyone who reads and shares this Blog will prosper in Mind, Body and Spirit!! That is my intention and focus for 2016.  I am feeling a renewed energy, but wanted to explore ways that will keep me on my life journey with continued EXCITEMENT!!  When I was doing my research, I came across a modality called Reiki, which I have followed for many years and decided to fully engage myself in learning, so that I could possibly incorporate it into my practice.  So, I did some in depth research and then finally decided I had to have a open mind and explore the Pros and Cons of Reiki by taking the Reiki Practitioner training.  I can honestly say that I see the value of Reiki, now more than ever.  I plan to use it in my Massage Practice as a separate modality for both the Massage and Wellness areas, but in a way that I believe will have the best affect for my Clients.  This is what I found in my research and training......


What is Reiki?

Reiki is a word from the Japanese language, meaning “Guided Life Force Energy.”

REIKI IS AN ENERGY HEALING MODALITY STARTED IN JAPAN IN 1922 BY MIKAO USUI.


REI= MYSTERIOUS   KI= LIFE FORCE ENERGY

Life energy, which makes up our thoughts, emotions, and consciousness, tends to be in all living things and connects us all. We all have places in our energy which become unbalanced, due to our very chaotic lifestyles and the extreme "fit in" conditioning in our society. We can be off balance due to stress, disease, pain, or emotional blocks, that leave us confused and weary about the future.


A Reiki Practitioner offers this life force energy to you thru entrainment which allows you to receive new energy where you are off balance, to help your body heal itself and rejuvenate.


Reiki does not require any religious belief in order to be effective. Being open to trying Reiki is all you need.

Reiki is not Meditation, Massage or Prayer. It is also not a Religion. But the one thing we can mostly all agree on, Practitioners and Clients alike, Reiki heals in ways that are simply hard to explain. 

Reiki isa calming and effective holistic technique for effortlessly receiving the life force energy you need to restore your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. That is what I love most about the Reiki modality. 


Is Reiki Science or Hype?

Reiki is a therapy based on the electromagnetic biofield, or a type of energy field that “regulates everything from our cellular function to our nervous system,” says Shamini Jain, ​assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California–San Diego. 

While the biofield itself is generally accepted – it “consists of things that we can measure like electromagnetic energy that actually emanates from us,” Jain says – biofield therapies such as Reiki and therapeutic touch are more controversial​ because they’re based on the idea of a “subtle” aspect of the biofield,​ which is harder to measure.

“It’s difficult for our Western science to wrap its mind around” because it’s not about popping pills, injecting needles or otherwise altering the body’s chemical composition, says Jain, a clinical psychologist who studies Integrative Medicine.​

Closing Thoughts....

In closing, although Reiki has its critics and to date no known medical risks, I want to be very clear it is not a substitute for conventional medicine, it is complementary and integrative medicine.​

BUT....The reason that I decided to add Reiki into my practice is, I am now convinced that Reiki, like Therapeutic Massage Therapy makes a positive, calming contribution to one's overall health and wellness! 

Most important, Reiki seems to bring clarity and peace of mind to people when they relax, open up and believe that healing truly begins within!! In a world that is so chaotic and a culture of "Do or Die", calming peace within can aid the Mind, Body and Spirit to a higher level of consciousness, where all healing prospers!  When you experience that balance of peace of mind, everything else on one's life journey is possible!! And that is what I LOVE about Reiki......PEACE OF MIND!!
