I have always known about energy work, I didn’t know what it was called, but my mom always did what we called “white light” she would visualize a white light and would send it to wherever I have pain and the magic was that it would go away. My mom went on to be attuned to Reiki while we were in England and I loved it. I even remember when I had my wisdom teeth removed the hospital had Reiki as an option for people who were in the hospital and when I asked the nurse told me that a lot of patients stated that they had less pain and feel that they healed quicker.
This has been my experience as well with a myriad of different energy techniques. So I have spent a fair amount of time learning several different ones. I have been attuned to the second level of Reiki. I have learned a little Christa energy some Chakra clearing techniques as well as just figuring things out for myself and trying my own things. I have my own ideas about the science behind it but I will leave that up to those that feel the desire to experiment. What has already been proven by scientists is that meditation is beneficial to your well being and like meditation when you receive Reiki or other energy work you quiet your mind and give it a much needed break.
Pamela Miles is a Reiki Master and practitioner since 1986, she works with the National Institute of Health (NIH), medical schools and hospitals to bring Reiki practice into conventional medicine, explains it very well in her article “How Reiki Helps” found here I highly recommend that you read the entire article. She discusses how Reiki triggers our parasympathetic nervous system, which puts our body into rest and digest mode, which is the bodies healing mode.The end result is that you feel rested, relaxed and often times you feel emotionally lighter and in less pain after receiving Reiki or another energy technique.
I started with a bang but then quickly got side tracked as I was waking up later and later and I needed to let the dog out and basically let life live me instead of me living life.
A couple great things though. I attended a workshop on comparative tarot that was facilitated by Amethyst Mahoney of Spiritual Badass University and that brought back to light that I love all things spiritual. It reminded me that I want to be doing Reiki and readings and have crystals in my life and live and attract people that won’t judge that.
In order to actually follow through on this whole Miracle Morning thing; I think that I need to go a little slower I had been waking up much earlier and I think I need to get back to that and then add things slowly.
So my plan is to make sure that I meditate every day and that I wake up by 5:45 am Monday – Friday and write about it. I am aware that journaling and brain dumping are amazingly useful tools in life so that is my commitment for the rest of the week, April 28th – May 1st, I will meditate and I will write something down, either in an actual journal or here online.
Anyone who is reading this I appreciate you I hope that you are getting something out of this!
Today I did a personal meditation using a mantra that I learned from Christa Resources LLC several years ago.
I ended up watching the interview Marie Forleo did with Elizabeth Gilbert on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyUYa-BnjU8 It was amazing and super uplifting and just really spoke to me, I was especially drawn to the way they talked about appreciating fear but not letting it control. I know that I have such a hard time with control.
I also listened to 10 minutes of You are a Badass by Jen Sincero which is a great start but I will definitely be listening to more later.
I have been noticing that my screen time has been so intense since being at home that it is crazy so I am trying to listen to things and not spend so much time on the computer or the phone.
We went for a walk so I got some exercise in. I need to be more aware of doing my SAVERS miracle morning when I first wake up!
