Feel to Heal

The healing journey is the most beautiful of journeys as it gives us an opportunity to fully transform from one unhealthy form, to a new vibrant one. Healing is a state created by oneself and it can become fully transformational to our minds, bodies, and spirits. Healing is a process of ascension to higher vibrational life force energy and the ascension process can be sped up by incorporating regular healing techniques for the mind, body, and spirit into our lifestyle.

One of the interesting concepts about healing is the concept that we must feel to heal. Most of us find a state of what we see as equilibrium through an outside mechanism. We find something that calms the nerves and it works once so we do it again, and again until it becomes an addiction. I don’t see addiction in the same way as most, because I have chosen that route in the past. I don’t see it with eyes of judgment but I see it with eyes of compassion and really, even congratulations that someone h

Choice, Chance, and Signs of Gratitude

“Start each day with a grateful heart” is printed on a wooden sign that was given to me by a friend. I have that inspiring message hanging on the wall opposite my bed. I am reminded first thing in the morning to be grateful. Such a simple instruction yet sometimes, very hard to do. My mind is quick to fill with duties of the day and sometimes a reluctance to leave the warmth of my cozy bed. Yet, if I can shift my attention from activity and instead tap into an inner gratitude for the mere fact that I am alive, then each breath becomes a sacred gift. Earlier this year, I had a close brush with death and can say first hand that I no longer take for granted the blessing of being alive.

Perhaps the universe needed to startle me back into an attitude of gratitude. The time was 7:15 pm on Sept 23rd when death brushed by me. I was walking across the road with friends in a crosswalk by the beach after a birthday celebration for my friend Shaun. I was the last one in the g

Alternative Medicine Has a Technical Value

Medicine was always located in drugs or in surgery. It was supported by a parallel system that was independent and complementary known as Alternative Medicine. However the two, till recently, were not destined to meet.

Medicine emerged from a system of clinical testing, of surveys, scans, medical records, experiments and data. These passed through rigorous tests of approval before licensed boards. The system bragged rights of methodology, license, discipline and efficacy. Alternative medicine, was located in systems of natural wellness, based on drug less, non-invasive technique. The mastery and skill of practise emerged from classical ancient texts, or new scientific discoveries with manual handling. Popular traditions of Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Ayurveda, Yoga, and Aromatherapy, homeopathy fell under this broad umbrella category of ancient practise and tradition.

Alternative medicine came under technical license and statute with World Health Organization that demystifie

Shamanic Healing Through Sounds

Shamanism, often considered to be the oldest of the healing professions, makes use of voice, drum, and rattles to communicate with the spirit world, seeking its positive healing energy for a patient. The human voice is the most common means used to summon the spirit worlds.

In our Native American cultures, specific ‘songs’ are used for healing and these are passed down from one generation to the next. Each culture, having its own traditions, also has its songs.

When one first hears a shaman’s song, one can’t help but feel the words all sound the same. Much of this may be due to the imitation in movies and television programs. The standard song appears to be “Ah Hey Ya” or something similar to “Ye Ha No Ha.” A careful listening reveals the sounds are the vowel sounds of A, E, I O, and U. During the chanting of these sounds; the sound of each vowel is elongated and is sung with specific intent-the intent to heal an ill pati

A Basic Principle of Healing: First, Do No Harm

The Greek healer, Hippocrates, set the first standards for medicine in the form of the Hippocratic Oath.

A basic principle of that oath was

“First do no harm.”

This ethic is meant to be the guide for whatever intervention a physician or healer uses to assist a patient to heal because…

the actual healing itself is done by the body.

For example, you accidentally cut your finger. You may clean the wound and put an antiseptic on it, followed by a bandaid.

None of these things actually cause the cut to heal. That work is done by the physical body itself.

  • Cleaning the wound and using an antiseptic remove bodies that may interfere with the physical body’s ability to repair the cut.
  • A bandaid, or bandage, assists by keeping the cut clean, and may hold the two sides of the cut together, thus making it easier for the body to rec

Natural Healing Technique

Do you know what Reiki is? Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei and Ki. These words are being used in spiritual healing methods. In seeking definitions, Rei can be defined as Higher Intelligence. It is a subtle wisdom that penetrates everything.

Ki is an abstract energy that animates all living organism. Flowing on every living thing including plants, animals, and also human beings. If the person feels strong and confident, it signifies that the Ki of that person is high. But if the person feels weak and more like getting sick, the Ki of that person is probably low.

This Ki can be found in the air that we breathe, the food we eat, sunshine and from getting sleep. Meditation and breathing exercise can help increase the amount of Ki of our body. When a human dies, Ki will live the human’s body.

Regarding from the information above, we can tell that Reiki is a non-physical healing energy that made up of life energy. Reiki can’t be guided by our minds.

Valentines Are Healing In So Many Ways

As a child it was loads of fun to make Valentines for each member of my class. Valentines are healing in so many ways. I felt the good feeling of making something for someone else.

Looking back on the time, I realize now, Mom was probably just finding projects to keep me and my three sisters busy for a couple of afternoons. We cut and pasted, trimmed and folded. I loved the color pink, so it didn’t surprise anyone when all my valentines had more pink on them and that I kinda’ dominated the pink crayon out of the set of crayons us sisters shared.

Mom was careful to have us take a break with hot chocolate and marshmallows out on the porch so we didn’t muss up our Valentines and, so we wouldn’t get too weary before our mission was accomplished. It was an exciting time of the school year.

Being the youngest of the four, Mom helped my valentines “just a little” so they would be presentable. We lived on a simple budget, so the one p

Mercury Retrograde As Healing

Oh no! Mercury retrograde! Well… not so fast.

It happens every time Mercury goes retrograde (the effect that makes the planet appear to travel backwards in the sky). Things go wrong-well, thanks a lot mercury retrograde. It’s an ingrained response. And it reveals a not-so-hidden problem (if a generally ignored one).

Mercury, of course, doesn’t really go backwards – it simply appears to do so from our perspective on Earth. And that’s the heart of the matter – perception. We see an elliptical orbit from our own elliptical spinning. It distorts reality.

You know this, of course, and that “mercury retrograde” refers to the astrological energetic correspondence. But consider – what is simply an ongoing cycle is perceived as ups and downs. It’s neither. It just is, a fundamental reality.

And that’s the problem with “my current troubles are because mercury is retrograde.&#82

Anger Held Within The Body Brought Me Arthritis – My Healing Journey Part 1

This entire year’s articles will be a series of healing articles on my arthritic hip healing journey and then the healing after arthroscopic surgery of the hip. I’ve been dealing with pain in my hip due to arthritis for the past couple of years now. When I had it checked out, I was told by my orthopedic that although too young now, I will at some point need a new hip due to degenerative arthritis. This less than wonderful news was so very upsetting but for me, but it was now time to ramp up my healing with Reiki. Then, it was back to business as usual. So back to my workouts as there’s really nothing to do just yet but deal with the occasional arthritis pain and continue with Reiki to help.

During one of my workouts last April, I realized that something was terribly wrong. After the workout and the day after, I didn’t have the usual pain feeling like I did a hell of a workout. It was a sharp continuous pain which we discovered shortly after through an
