My Work With Reiki – A Pure Blessing

How little did I know when I first started working with Reiki. As a matter of fact, I thought I knew why I was interested in learning more about it but really, I had no idea what I would get myself into.

Over and over, when working with my clients, I am blown away by how fast Reiki works, and by how much it exceeds my expectations of what it can do.

Practicing Reiki has been an extraordinary lesson in letting go of my ego. Letting go of what I think would be best for my client, but simply trusting into the Divine Source of all life that healing will always be provided at it’s own pace, where it is needed the most, and only to serve the highest good.

One of my clients came to me with severe disturbances in her life, and asked me to guide her through a Past Life Regression session. For a variety of reasons, I don't use past life regression in the first session that we meet. My client was severely impacted by family trauma, causing a whole lot of hardship in her current life including financial issues, an inability to find and keep a fulfilling relationship, sleeping and eating disorders, plus trauma-related behavioral challenges in her children. When she entered my practice the first time, she was drastically underweight, deprived of sleep, plagued by anxiety and panic attacks, and just overwhelmed by completing daily life tasks. Only two sessions later she started smiling, came in happy and almost bubbling over by wanting to share how much better she felt already. After about six weeks, she had visibly gained some weight, her complexion went from very pale to a lively glow, her eyes had gained their shine back, and her anxiety was gone.

Another client scheduled Reiki sessions with me after her husband had died way too early, and left her and two teenage aged children behind. She was overwhelmed by grief and had a hard time fighting back her tears. She felt lonely, cut in half, like she had lost her vision for her life and her sense of belonging. The first session was energetically very intense. Only two weeks later, she showed up to her follow up session - with a big smile on her face, a loud “thank you” followed by “I feel like I have my life back”! Oh wow, I was so touched and happy for her!

Over the past two years I helped clients with fertility issues, helped them to dissolve unhealthy relationship patterns, overcome depression, sleeping disorders, anxiety, and addiction.

In severe cases I combine Reiki with hypnotherapy and take my clients into a safe, deeply relaxed and highly suggestible state of trance. If appropriate, I include healing crystals into Reiki sessions - selecting crystals to amplify the healing energy channeled to address physical, mental, and emotional challenges.

When things are not going well in your life and the same patterns keep appearing, Reiki can loosen the emotional chains holding you back, after which they can be released so you can focus on your purpose here on Earth - what brings you joy, and how to attain your personal power and take charge of your life.

People who open up blockages and let the energy flow through may experience an intense rush. People touched by Reiki Universal Life Force energy strive for self-improvement and for the higher good of all concerned. People become more loving with each other. Sharing kindness from the heart is possibly the noblest thing a person can do. Have the courage to live your light!

 

Crystal Reiki

Crystals have been used for centuries as tools for healing. They are selected for their variety of frequencies and properties. Crystal Reiki utilizes the frequencies that reside within the earth and amplifies them through the power of Reiki energy. The earth vibrates at a specific frequency known as the Schumann resonance. Traditionally this resonance is thought to hover around 7.8 Hz though it varies from region to region. Indeed, believe it or not, the earth behaves like a giant electric circuit.

This is interesting because science is beginning to understand that we are deeply connected to the earth's resonance. These frequencies are thought to impact our autonomic nervous system, brain and cardiovascular system. But not only are there naturally occurring frequencies that impact us, but also man-made frequencies such as wi-fi and LTE. Assumed that we understand ourselves as electrical beings, think electroencephalogram or electrocardiogram, and thus us being deeply intertwined with the global electrical circuit of our planet's electromagnetic field, we understand that it is very well possible that artificial frequencies such as the use of mobile phones can create interferences with our system that can cause imbalance. But also natural events such as peak solar flares can cause shifts in the earth's geomagnetic activity with effects on human health. Shifts in the earth's geomagnetic activity are correlated with hospital admissions, death from heart attacks and strokes, as well as many other physical imbalances such as depression, fatigue, mental confusion, and even the number of traffic accidents that occur.

How Crystal Reiki Works 

In a Crystal Reiki session, you  use individually selected crystals and place them in a specific layout around and on the recipient and then allow Reiki energy to flow through you into the crystals and then the recipient. Just as sunlight shining through a crystal prism creates facets of light, Reiki energy passing through the crystals will create a specific energetic resonance within the recipient that their body will then use to harmonize imbalances. The presence of Reiki energy amplifies the energy of the crystals and helps the bodymind of the recipient focus on specific areas of the body, conditions or levels of awareness that are ready to heal. In a Crystal Reiki session, Reiki energy is coming from above through the crown chakra while the crystals used in the session bring in a grounding energy from the earth. Together these energies work seamlessly.

Although crystals are considered a part of the mineral kingdom, minerals are less transparent than crystals and darker in color with a consistent chemical structure. Minerals are thought to strengthen the physical aspects of the body such as bones, tissue etc. Both minerals and crystals can be used to help balance the recipient in a Crystal Reiki session.

Crystals have the ability to absorb, channel, focus and emit energy. They can generate energy through a process known as the Piezoelectric effect. This effect occurs when pressure is applied to the crystal which then generates energy. In the same way, if a voltage is applied to a crystal such as quartz, it will bend or slightly change its shape. We all consist of electromagnetic energy. When holding a crystal, your frequency interacts with the crystal, creating a similar type of Piezoelectric effect. The crystal vibrates and the energy it creates can be transmitted to your own internal energy pathways.  The energy of Reiki will infuse the intentions of the practitioner and recipient as well as the energetic properties of the crystal to create a unique high frequency.

Healing From Spinal Injury

"If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you." - Fred Devito

The year 2001 was a fantastic one for me. After graduating from college, I spent the rest of the year traveling and literally dancing through my life - one month in Sevilla, Spain taking Flamenco lessons, a trip to the Greek isle of Patmos studying and developing a new performance on the path of Ancient philosophers, one month on a road trip through Southern France visiting medieval cathedrals and festivals to learn renaissance dances. I returned to Berlin in Germany to prepare for yet another great trip to perform as a dancer in South Africa. But hey, the year wasn't over yet, and one day during training, I landed a failed somersault so unfortunate that three of my vertebrae got fractured by the high impact of the fall. Plus, not just my bones got fractured, but also the spinal discs in between got damaged and their fluid leaked out.

This spinal exhibit reveals compression fractures to the T12 and l1 vertebrae with open surgical incision and spinal fusion with placement of hooks, fixation rods and bone graft material to stabilize the middle lower back.

The spinal exhibit to the left shows compression fractures of the T11, T12 and L1 vertebrae as experienced by me. Usual treatment of injuries like these would be open surgical incision and spinal fusion with placement of titanium screws into T10 and L2, fixation rods to bridge the fractured bones, and maybe additional bone graft material to stabilize the back.

It might sound like an advanced treatment. However, the surgery itself bears the risk to injure the spinal cord. The titanium stabilizer allows patients to get out of the bed and the hospital pretty soon - after only two weeks or so - but at the same time the spine will become stiff - just like the metal rods that bridge the bones. With no chance to move and be squeezed and released the spinal discs can't receive important nutrients and thus, can't regenerate. At even though patients are able to walk and be released from the hospital soon, they aren't fully mobile. In several conversations with doctors I learned that one frequently occurring issue is that when patients try to exercise or engage in physical labor such as lifting things or bowing forward, that the titanium screws break out of the bones. It's not the screw that breaks, but the bone, because the spine tries to bend and can't.

Therefore for me as a dancer surgery was the worst option ever. I stubbornly insisted to allow the bones to heal conservatively. Each tissue in our bodies regenerates at its own pace. While a bruise heals after one week, and the taste nerves of our tongues renew every two days, broken bones require four weeks to heal. I had to lay in bed for four weeks straight - no getting up allowed at all! Then I spent another six weeks in rehab, learning how to move and walk again. Under supervision of a physical therapist I exercised to build strong core muscles  and started some weight training. I swam on a slow pace half a mile every day in the sanatorium's pool, because the support of the water was more comfortable than standing upright. My entire focus was set on healing. And boy, was I happy and proud, but I was also stiff, and scared of falling again. I thought that that was it. Certain movements I would never be able to do again.

Well, things changed dramatically when I came back to a more regular yoga practice again. In baby steps, I started rebuilding inner core muscles and pelvic muscles to support my body's weight and a good posture. Through practicing gentle back bends I strengthened my back muscles, and started to mobilize my spine through twists. Forward and backward bending, twisting, and stretching helped to transport nutrients into my discs, squeezing and releasing them like little sponges. While western medicine teaches that damaged spinal discs can't regenerate, I report that mine recovered fully! Lastly, I rebuilt my confidence and overcame the fear of getting broken again through practicing head-stands.

Healing From Cancer

As a young woman of 21 years of age, I received one of the most shocking and scary news of my life. I got diagnosed with uterine cancer. I felt, I was way too young to have cancer and couldn't believe it at first! It went bad fast, within only three months my doctor told me that she scheduled me for a hysterectomy, and demanded I should take a week off to get admitted to the hospital.

The proposal to remove my uterus was plain unacceptable for me. So, I asked my doctor, what are my chances if I'd refused the surgery? She said, "I don't know." I asked, "Oh my, is it that serious?" She said, "I can't know, within the 25 years of my practice as a gynecologist, you'd be first patient to refuse the surgery." Wow, another shock! So, I said, "Well, in that case I guess, I am the first one, because what you are offering me here is not healing but crippling me. I want to be a mom one day, and you can't have my uterus."

Then I walked out of her office, and thought, what now? I realized that simply saying no to surgery didn't solve my problem. I started looking for alternatives, and found a doctor in Berlin, who practices Traditional Chinese Medicine. He was able to deliver an explanation for what caused the abnormal cell growth that made perfect sense to me.

At the time I was a student in college, also working for the college both as project coordinator for a comprehensive federally funded research study and as a tutor, working on the weekends as a performer to pay all my bills. On top of my workload, I was smoking cigarettes, drinking way to much coffee, eating always on the run, taking the contraception pill (artificial hormones), and never sleeping enough. I basically put my body under permanent stress from all sides. Leading that sort of lifestyle caused lots of stress on my liver and spleen, requiring them to constantly produce stress hormones to keep my body running and performing at high level, thus reducing its capacity to produce progesterone and estrogen. It came to the point that my liver couldn't handle the load of toxins anymore. So, how smart is nature, my body increasingly used my menstruation to detox. However, the uterus is not a detox organ, it's a reproductive organ. My lifestyle so to say caused an abuse of my uterus by having it flush through loads of toxins over an extended period of time. This caused the cells to get clogged and reproduce with abnormal growth.

My immediate response to the diagnosis was to change my lifestyle:

  • I quit smoking
  • quit taking the contraception pill
  • stopped drinking coffee and switched to green tea.
  • My gynecologist laughed about me, and said that it was good that I quit smoking but that this wouldn't cure the cancer. I just thought, wait and see, and realized that with menstruating every month, I had a new chance every month to influence if my organ would regenerate with healthy or abnormal cells.
  • Well, she was right insofar that I had to do more: Next I fasted - pretty drastically - for four weeks I ate only fresh squeezed raw juices, including mostly green / herbal juices, and green healing clay. I lost a lot of weight and didn't look healthy for a while, but the goal was to completely detox, cleanse the colon, and the liver. My goal was to get rid of excess nitrogen compounds in the body and increase oxygen levels in the cells, no more animal proteins, no more sugar, no more toxins = and the cancer would starve.
  • After fastening I started rebuilding my strength and health by eating a raw vegan diet for almost two years. My cell values started getting better and better, and after 10 months I was absolutely cancer free! I sticked with the raw food diet for longer simply because it made me feel really good. I felt pure, light, energized, and focussed. Former struggles with headaches, insomnia, brain fog, fatigue, and bloating were gone. However, living organic raw food vegan is indeed a social challenge. Therefore after about two years I settled for a vegan diet, which in my case means, that I eat everything plant-based plus cheese and honey. I don't eat eggs nor meat nor poultry, don't drink dairy milk nor any other animal based products.
  • Today I'm a mom of three healthy children. During my pregnancies and years of nursing, I followed a vegan diet. All three children are born at home. I'm cancer free - 20 years later - and today I also know that there are several other alternative ways but raw food to heal cancer. Cancer treatment certainly doesn't have to mean additional harmful attacks on our organism and immune system.

What is Reiki?

Reiki, originally developed and taught by Mikao Usui in Japan, is based on the concept of an universal life force, which flows in all living beings (and surrounds us as well known as the Self or the Divine or God or the one and only truth), and which we can access through prayer, attunements, alignment of our chakras, and then channel it onto others through our hands. The syllable "ki" means "life force", and it refers to nothing different but what is called "qi" or "chi" in other Asian, primarily the Chinese, traditions, the breath of God in the Christian teachings, and "prana" as known from yogic, and Ayurvedic philosophy.

Reiki is a simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is administered by "laying on hands". Reiki energy work is safe for pregnant women, seniors, children, and even babies. From thousands of individual experiences it is known to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and harmonize imbalances. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes depleted or blocked it comes to symptoms of physical dis-ease or emotional imbalance. The Reiki practitioner can channel universal life energy into the patient, or more precisely be the channel through which the patient draws energy in, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore harmony. For this reason Reiki works well combined with other medical or therapeutic methods to relieve side effects or promote recovery. Reiki works because it connects the universal life force energy with the body’s innate powers of healing.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn or use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent to belief at all and will work whether you believe it or not. The energy will always go where it is needed the most.

Wonderful, Simple, Effective – Applications of Healing Earth

Healing earth, sometimes better known as mineral clay, offers an astonishing variety of medicinal and cosmetic uses that can bring your body back into balance. It can literally help you to stay grounded! Clay may be used externally and orally. Eating clay can do wonders for your health! luvos

For external use, the clay may be applied to the whole body as in warm spa mud wraps, or prepared in poultices for application to specific parts of the body. The heat opens up the pores of the skin, and helps the interaction of the clay with the body. Internally it is used to detox the intestines, the colon, and thus the entire body. Clay cures inflammation, drives bacterial and fungal infections out, and supplies up to 75 important trace elements (depending on the type of clay).

BEAUTY  - your spa at home 
Clay is fantastic for facial masks, which are easy to prepare, and popular because of their exfoliating, purifying properties. Clay masks withdraw excess oil and pollutants from our faces, and they help heal rashes and acne. However, the different kinds of clay offer diverse properties.

French green clay: Combination of volcanic matter, decomposed plant substances and minerals. Very cleansing. Recommended for oily skin or a normal/oily skin combination. 

bentonite-clay-maskMoroccan red clay, Rhassoul: With a long tradition in Hammam baths, this clay contains iron and is used to heal acne. luvosMask

Bentonite: This clay is found in the Western United States with Luvos loess being a traditional, therapeutically used clay from Germany. Safe for use on all skin types. 

Fuller’s earth: This is a very fine grayish colored powder derived from algae, chock full of minerals and very absorbing.

In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the clay with about 3 tablespoons of liquid. Depending on your skin type use spring water or rose water for normal skin, or witch hazel and orange blossom water if your skin is oily. For dry and sensitive skin it is recommended to substitute water with sesame, olive, or almond oil. If you are suffering from acne, add 1 tablespoon apple cider to the mix. The consistency should be thick and cream-like, not runny. If you added too much of the liquid just stir in a little bit more clay. Apply the mask to your cleaned face and neck with your fingers or a make-up sponge. Avoid the eye area. Leave on for 15 to 30 minutes. Once the mask is dry, rinse off with lukewarm water and apply moisturizer. Your skin will glow with vibrant good health. 

HEALING - medicinal uses of healing earthsgreenclay

Healing clay provides an affordable and natural yet effective remedy against diarrhea, heartburn, and acid-related stomach pain due to its ability to bind excess bile acids, and cholesterol. Simply stir 1 teaspoon of either bentonite or green clay into 8 oz. of water, and drink on an empty stomach in the morning. Wait for 30 minutes before eating anything. Do this as a cure fore 21 days in a row. Repeat 3 to 4 times per year. Or use as needed for treatment of acute ailments.
Bentonite, montmorillonite, and illite have been proven to be antifungal including toxic and carcinogenic infections such as Aflatoxicosis, and effective against yeast infections including Candida albicans. Eating or drinking healing earth can be used to cleanse the body from heavy metals including lead, cadmium, and mercury
. Another property of immense benefit is the antibacterial effect of bentonite and green clays. In several scientific studies conducted in France and Arizona, the clays have been found to be highly effective against E.coli, pseudomonas, salmonella, and even the dreaded "superbug" MRSA and the flesh-eating African bacteria buruli to name just a few. One side-effect to be considered before using clay internally is the inhibition of the body's absorption of antibiotics, substitute hormones and heart medication by coating the digestive tract.  How is it possible that certain types of clay are so versatile and beneficial for human health? Loess, bentonite, and green clay naturally form a negative charge when mixed with water. This negative charge creates a pulling effect called adsorption, drawing positively charged ions out of our cells - and it so happens that bacteria, heavy metals, and pesticides all have a positive ionic charge. Negatively charged ions stay untouched. One more amazing capability of clay that depends on its acting like a plus pole is the adsorption of radiation. A study performed by Duke University found that specific parts of the human DNA and RNA exposed to damaging gamma radiation recovered faster in persons that had eaten clay.
