How Can Reiki Healing Boost Your Immune System?

Published

Reiki Healing For Immune System Image

As the coronavirus spreads, it’s more important than ever to support the immune system. Our immune systems are designed to fight off sicknesses and viruses. But unfortunately, the immune system can get worn down by many factors such as stress, anxiety, toxins, lack of exercise, smoking, and unhealthy eating. This prevents our bodies from effectively fighting off the virus. If you happen to be a Reiki practitioner, you have a powerful tool to boost your immune system! In this article, I will share with you how Reiki healing can help your immune system become stronger. Read on!

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a form of energy healing. It is based on the hands-on healing technique through which universal energy is being transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.

Reiki healing sessions help to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself, restore energy balance, and boost the immune system, which allows the body to resist various diseases or recover faster. Therefore Reiki healing sessions are something you don’t want to skip during the pandemic time!

If you are a Reiki practitioner make sure to include the immune-boosting technique described below in your daily Reiki sessions. And if you are not a Reiki practitioner, then book a Reiki session from an experienced Reiki healer and ask for immune-boosting and thymus healing session!

Thymus And Immune System

thymus healing image

The thymus gland is an essential organ for the development of the immune system, but very few people have any idea about its existence. It is the thymus gland that maintains our immune system – the body’s defense system against viruses.

Metaphorically speaking, the thymus can be described as a “school” of accelerated learning of immune system cells (lymphocytes), which are formed from stem cells in the bone marrow. Once in the thymus, newborn “soldiers” of the immune system are transformed into T-lymphocytes that are able to fight viruses, infections, and autoimmune diseases.

T-lymphocytes “attack” foreign substances that have entered the body, control the production of antibodies against pathogenic agents, and influence other protective reactions of the body.

The thymus gland is located in the middle of the chest, in the upper part of the chest. To detect the location of the thymus gland, you need to put two fingers together below the clavicle notch.

In order to boost your immune system, you need to make your thymus gland stronger. You see, the weakened thymus makes your body vulnerable to viruses whereas the strengthened thymus increases your immune system and stabilizes your internal vitality.

Therefore when you need to boost your immune system via Reiki healing you need to focus on the thymus gland, and this is how you do it!

Reiki Healing Technique For Immunity Boosting

Enough theory! Now let’s get to the healing part!

Reiki Healing Session For Immunity Image

1. Start with inviting Reiki energy for activating and strengthening the thymus gland and boosting the immune system.

2. Place your right hand over the area of your thymus, and the left hand over your solar plexus. Let the energy flow and heal you. Stay in this position for at least 10-15 minutes.

3. Now leave your left hand on your solar plexus and lightly tap on your thymus in a circular motion in a clockwise direction with three fingers (index, middle and ring fingers) of your right hand. Make 10-20 tapping circles. This action activates the thymus and strengthens your immune system.

4. Now place your both hands on your thymus for at least 5 minutes. And then finish the session. Express your gratitude.

Note: It is not recommended to tap the thymus area if you or you have a fever!

If you are Reiki level II practitioner, you can use the Reiki symbol 1 – CKR – for performing this technique. In this case, you are performing the same actions with the only difference – you draw the CKR symbol on your thymus when performing step 2.

What Else Can Help Us To Keep the Immune System Strong?

Echinacea Immune Boost Image

Though practicing Reiki healing brings lots of amazing benefits, it is also important to remember to stay hydrated with pure water and eat fresh fruits and vegetables during the pandemic times. Don’t forget to include vitamin/mineral food supplements into your diet.

Zinc is a mineral that is essential for an immune system function. Including zinc in your diet can help protect you against respiratory tract infections and reduce their duration.

Echinacea helps to improve immune health and may have antiviral effects.

Vitamin D is essential to the health and functioning of your immune system. Healthy levels of this vitamin may help lower your risk of respiratory infections.

Vitamin C helps keep the immune system healthy by clearing out old cells and replacing them with new ones. It also helps to reduce the duration and severity of upper respiratory tract infections and to recover faster.

Elderberry extract has antibacterial and antiviral properties. It helps to enhance immune system response and may help shorten the duration and severity of colds, as well as reduce symptoms related to viral infections

The Bottom Line

As you can see, it is a very simple technique! This technique can be incorporated into your daily Reiki practice, for example, during or after a Reiki healing session.

If you regularly activate your thymus every morning and repeat this technique several times during the day, then after a short period of time you can feel that your body gets much healthier and the immune system gets much stronger.

Though this practice may seem simple and easy to perform, it has a wonderfully positive effect on your overall health and brings additional benefits to your Reiki healing sessions!

Crown Chakra Crystals And Stones: Meaning & Use

Published

on

Crown chakra crystals image

It’s not a secret that stones and crystals have certain vibrations and a unique configuration of subtle bodies. There are stones that resonate with our energy centers that are able to harmonize and balance our chakras. The proper interaction with these stones and crystals can change the vibration of our cells and energy fields and improve our mental and physical health. In this article, we will share with you Crown chakra crystals and stones which can help you to balance and harmonize it.

Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)

The Crown chakra is the 7th chakra that is located on the top of the head, or rather, directly above the top, outside of the dense body. It opens up and connects us with the Universe. Sahasrara transmits universal knowledge and wisdom.

The Crown chakra affects the work of the brain, pituitary gland, and connects us with our fate. The crown center works as a personal compass, guiding us along our life path. It connects us to our Higher Self, reveals our spiritual potential, and charges us with creative energy.

Sahasrara is the place where the intellectual, emotional, and intuitive meet, and it is the connection between the earthly mind and cosmic spirit.

Open and Balanced Sahasrara

If the Crown chakra is fully open, then a person feels the fullness of being. However, very few people manage to reach this level. In order for Crown chakra to be completely open, all other chakras have to be open too. Therefore balanced and open Sahasrara is a very rare yet powerful state. A person in this state feels an indescribable joy and strength. All those who have achieved this believe that they have received a priceless Divine gift. This is the highest level of enlightenment and the deepest level of love.

Disbalance In the Crown Chakra

Sahasrara crystals image

Whenever there is a blockage in the chakra system, physical and non-physical signs manifest. The good news is that the Crown chakra cannot be completely blocked. It may be unbalanced or poorly developed. If Sahasrara is unbalanced, it can be a result of disbalance in lower chakras, as well as a result of lack of faith, selflessness, purity, and nobility of the soul.

Some of the symptoms of unbalanced Crown chakra are:

  • a weak immune system;
  • sleep disorders;
  • nervousness;
  • chronic diseases;
  • arrogance;
  • abusive behavior;
  • misunderstanding of the meaning of life;
  • the desire to escape from the reality (by using drugs, alcohol, etc.).

The good news is that any person with a clear conscience and a pure soul has the ability to develop and balance the Crown chakra.

Crown Chakra Crystals And Stones

Now let’s take a look at Crown chakra crystals and stones. Here are a few healing stones that may help you to open, balance, and heal your Sahasrara chakra.

How to Use Crown Chakra Crystals?

Have you ever wondered why the members of the royal families wear crowns decorated with precious stones? The obvious answer is for majestic beauty and confirmation of your high status. The non-obvious answer is to clean and restore the Crown chakra. Yes, the secret symbolism of the crown decorated with gemstones is the connection with God and the Divine power.

crown jewelry image

The Crown chakra connects a person with the energy of the planet and the Universe. Purple, golden, clear, and white stones, carefully selected, charged and correctly configured, can open the Crown chakra, change consciousness, way of thinking, and acting.

To work with Crown chakra crystals, you don’t have to wear a crown. It is enough to put a stone on the top of your head during meditation. Holding it in your hands over your head during meditation is quite difficult – as your hands will surely get tired. But if you are well developed physically, this is an ideal option, since the chakra is located just above the top of the head. You can also place the crystal in front of you at a close distance, exactly at the level of the Crown chakra. You can put the stone at night on a pillow over the crown of the head.

Jewelry And Talismans

To heal and balance your Crown chakra, wear a ring with one of the Crown chakra crystals on your thumb. You see, the thumb is a finger projection of the Crown chakra. Therefore, if you often wear a ring with clear quartz, amethyst, or other Crown chakra crystals on your thumb – this will have the most favorable effect on your consciousness and increase the energy in the Crown Center.

You can also increase the energy in your Crown chakra by sewing tiny crystals into your hats. Or, you can use small-sized crystals to make hair ornaments – hairpins, combs, etc.

The Bottom Line

Crystals and stones can be a very powerful tool in healing and balancing your Crown chakra. There are numerous ways to incorporate crystals into your lifestyle and environment. You can always just place them around your home and office space, carry them in your purse or even wear them as jewelry.

However, keep in mind that it is your own awareness and commitment to a spiritual path that will make you feel more connected to God and the Divine Plan. Therefore, make sure you take all the necessary steps for your spiritual growth and personal evolution!

Shakti Mudra For Reconnecting With the Divine Mother Within

Published

on

Shakti Mudra Image

Shakti Mudra got its name in honor of Shakti. In Sanskrit, Shakti means “power” or “empowerment,” and mudra means “gesture,” “mark,” or “seal.” In the Hindu Pantheon of deities, Shakti is the consort of Lord Shiva. As you may know, Shiva is the personification of cosmic consciousness and the static masculine principle of the Universe. And Shakti is the dynamic feminine principle of the Universe that opposes it. Both of these principles are present in every person, they are equally important for both women and men.

By practicing this beautiful mudra we can reconnect to the Divine Mother within us all.

If you are overly stressed, suffer from anxiety, insomnia or muscle spasms Shakti mudra is what you need!

In this article, I will share with you what Shakti mudra is, what its benefits are and how to perform it.

What Is a Mudra?

what is mudra image

Mudra” can be translated as “seal”, “mark”, or “gesture”. Hence Mudras are symbolic gestures practiced with the hands and fingers.

Connecting the fingers in certain combinations, we can activate the meridians and direct energy throughout the body. Different positions of the fingers have the ability to close or clear the energy channels. In addition, performing this or that mudra, we affect the biologically active points of the palms and fingers.

Mudras are invented for the correct redirection of energy in the body, for the control of prana and for changing the psycho-emotional state. Also, with their help, you can eliminate problems in the body and in the mind by pressing on particular acupuncture points.

Shakti Mudra Benefits

Shakti Mudra is a very powerful practice that has lots of benefits. Here are some of them:

  • cures insomnia by calming and relaxing the individual who practices it;
  • improves the quality of sleep at night;
  • relaxes the pelvic area, offering relief to those with intestinal or menstrual discomfort;
  • calms the nervous system and can be practiced anywhere and anytime an individual is seeking relief;
  • strengthens the respiratory drive in the lower area of the chest;
  • increases the immune system;
  • influences the Sacral chakra (Svadhisthana);
  • deepens the effect of such meditative poses like Padmasana (lotus pose), Malasana (garland pose), Utkata Konasana (goddess pose);
  • helps to reconnect to the Divine Mother within us;
  • deepens meditation.

You should definitely consider Shakti mudra practice if you are overly stressed, suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia or muscle spasms!

How Does It Work?

When the fingers of our hands are connected in a certain mudra, we are in connection with the power of the cosmos and the energy of the Universe. Each of our fingers is a symbol of connection with a certain planet and life-creating elements.

Fingers Corresponding to the 5 Elements image

Thumb represents the Fire element (Agni).

The index finger is associated with the energy of the Air element.

The middle finger is responsible for the Ether.

The ring finger connects us to the energy of the Earth.

The pinkie represents Water.

Each finger of the hand corresponds to certain energy. And each phalanx of each finger is responsible for a specific part of the body.

In addition, each finger is connected with different parts of the body and internal organs. By performing mudras with your hands, you definitely stimulate those parts of the body and organs that are directly connected to the energy channels that pass through the palms and fingers.

How to Perform Shakti Mudra?

How to perform Shakti Mudra Image

1. Place your palms in front of your chest.

2. Connect the pads of the pinky and ring fingers together.

3. Fold your thumbs into the palms and wrap the index and middle fingers around the thumb.

4. Press the knuckles of the index and middle fingers together.

Optional: Lower the hands to just below the navel.

While performing this mudra breathe deep. Try to keep your focus on your breath. Gradually slow down the breath, making the exhalation longer.

Visualization

It’s very beneficial to perform a simple visualization while practicing Shakti mudra. For doing this, simply imagine different images of green color. These can be trees, glades, and landscapes. You can imagine being surrounded by a green forest. Focus on the healing power that this forest charges you with. By breathing deeply inhale the fresh air of this forest and feel how it nourishes your body, mind, and spirit. With the exhale release all the tension, stress, and pain that has accumulated in your body over the years. Let your body heal itself!

Affirmation

During your Shakti mantra practice you can also say the following affirmation:

“My essence is filled with calmness, harmony and deep peace”.

Additional Recommendations

You can perform Shakti mudra in a supine position, including on your side. It is not recommended to practice it for more than 12 minutes three times a day, because there is a great risk of lethargy.

Enjoy your practice!

Pranic Healing: Overcome Modern Day Ailments with Life Energies

Published

on

pranic healing image

Often we struggle with conditions that modern medicine finds it hard to demystify. However, Mother Nature is always at hand to heal our minds and bodies with her age-old techniques. One such avenue to tap into nature’s healing power is through pranic healing.

What is it? How does it work? Is it ideal for your situation?

These are some of the common questions that this quick guide seeks to address. Are you ready to unlock what Mother Nature has in store for you? Keep reading!

So What Is Pranic Healing?

kundalini yoga image

Pranic healing is a non-invasive treatment. It involves a meditation practice that sets the flow of prana energy (also called Kundalini) in our bodies. As a result, it restores our wellness and breathes life to our bodies and minds.

Pranic healing gets its name from the Sanskrit word ‘Prana’. It means a life-giving force or a vital principle. As per Indian belief, this helpful prana energy is all around us. Hence, we use meditation to tap this life force and use it to restore life into our bodies.

Meditation TechniqueAim
Natural BreathingIt is the basic pranic healing technique.
Here, we become conscious of our
breathing patterns. Consequently,
it soothes and relaxes the mind and body.
Basic Abdominal BreathingIt involves learning to breathe with our
diaphragm. This way, we make use of all
parts of our lungs. As a result, our
internal organs gain from improved
breathing.
Thoracic BreathingThis breathing way uses more energy
than the abdominal one. Hence, we
learn the right way to expand
the ribcage and not the diaphragm.
It prepares participants for other
detailed yogic breathing sessions.
Clavicular BreathingIt involves learning how to breathe
under lots of stress. Here, you master
how to allow lots of air into your lungs
and arrest any medical issue. It is
excellent on asthma attacks, blocked
or obstructed airwaves, and emphysema.
Yogic BreathingThis technique is about breathing
using both the clavicular, abdomen,
and chest areas. It works well
to promote optimal inhalation and
exhalation. The participant learns
how to use these three areas in exact
proportions.
Deep BreathingHere, the participant uses a timer
or clock to check the breathing
periods. This way, they learn to take
deep and smooth breaths and hold
them for longer. These gulps of air
assist in massaging the internal
organs. It also helps in lowering
blood pressure, stress, and anxiety.
The participant learns to take in more
oxygen with every breath. In addition,
it relaxes the nervous system and helps
prepare expectant mothers for labor.

How do we achieve this?

The Principle Behind Pranic Healing and Pranayama

Pranayama is a set of meditation habits that are part of a pranic healing session. Here, the persons guide their breathing to raise prana energy through the spine. In turn, when the prana enters the sixth chakra, one gets enlightenment.

Other pranic healing techniques include:

  1. Interrupted Breathing – Anuloma Viloma
  2. Alternate Nostril Breathing  –  AnulomVilom
  3. Cooling Breath – Kaki mudra, Sheetali, Sitkari
  4. Victorious Breath – Ujjayi             
  5. Humming Bee Breath – Bhramari
  6. Bellow’s Breath – Bhastrika
  7. Right Nostril Breathing – Surya Bhedan

How Does Pranic Healing Work?

Kundalini awakening symptoms image

Our spines have an energetic nerve channel that runs on either side of the spine. The prana energy sips upward through this channel. As it does so, our breath draws to the lungs, resulting in a reawakening of the senses.

Even so, as the prana energy shifts downward, it becomes Apana energy. This new life force induces the person to exhale. In turn, he detaches from the conflicting forces of the outside world.

Through inhalation, we get happy and excited about prana energy. Meanwhile, we conquer depression, anxiety, or any other emotional disturbance with every exhalation. 

What Should I Expect To Gain From A Pranic Healing Session?

Attain Inner Peace

Prana energy cleanses our emotions and thoughts. That way, we experience quietness and harmony. Eventually, we become mindful of our being.

Happiness and Better Health

Heart Chakra Healing image

Pranic healing clears and activates our heart chakra. It is the heart chakra that determines our feelings of joy and happiness. In the process, our bodies respond by becoming healthy in mind and body. 

Higher Intelligence Levels

When prana energy enters our upper chakras, it revives our high intelligence. These upper chakras connect to our spirituality. They define our concentration, abstract thinking, and brain activity levels. In addition, when free, they have a ripple effect on the lower chakras like the sacral chakra.

We Heal Ourselves

By learning breathing meditation, we develop healthy habits that discourage diseases. Instead, taking good care of our minds and bodies becomes a standard routine.

We Impact Health to Others

It is not easy to sample the benefits of pranic healing and keep them to yourself. You will have the urge to want to help others restore their health as you did. Hence, in a way, pranic healing creates a ripple healing effect on those around us. That’s why you find beneficiaries start breathing meditation classes in their neighborhood.

Discover Other Positive Energies In and Around You

Alan Watts Quotes Image

As you go through a self-awakening, you become aware of how the energy in and around you spins. You’ll see how these forces impact your life. Then, you can come up with strategies to avoid the negatives and attract the positives only. 

Appreciate Your Chakras

As discussed earlier, Pranic healing works through our chakras. Therefore, as you see the results of the therapy, you’ll learn to appreciate how this anatomy of energies works.

Get Your Life Back

Pranic healing makes us aware of how our bodies react to external forces. We gain charge over many aspects of our lives. These include finances, relationships, spirituality, and health. 

Better Intuition

Third eye chakra activation image

A clear Third eye chakra helps us to horn our intuition. Hence, we can trust our sixth sense to direct us out of any imminent dangers or tricky situations.

Conclusion

Prana energy gives us a chance to clear our chakras and recover from common ailments. Moreover, pranic healing can become a lifestyle habit. You’ll heal and stop any sickness or emotional imbalances without using any drugs. Besides, the rounds are quite straightforward and free. Yet, the gains are priceless. Use pranic healing to awaken you today.
