I started my reiki journey in 2006 and over the years have gone down various roads. I always come back to healings and energy work. I started a little group in lockdown for my clients and friends on Facebook to offer free distance healings. I am still bewildered each time I do these as to the powerful effects it can have. Just affirms to me that time is irrelevant and we are all connected.
Reiki is a wonderful self healing discipline and is such a gift to be able to share with others.
This article by Ben Greenfield explains the invisible energetic force that surround us and is affected by our thoughts feelings and environment. I came across this article today whilst reading his email on another hack we can use for sleep.
My hack is qi gong, meditation, cbd and turning off all electronic an hour before bed…
Anyway the invisible force article excerpt below
You may not be able to fully articulate or grasp how, but you understand on some level that there are invisible variables we are in tune with. Things like emotions, thoughts, and beliefs play a big role in the health of our mind, body and spirit.
We can label these invisible forces in different ways- energy, frequency, vibrations or “spirit”. Depending on your willingness to keep an open mind, you may dismiss these type of concepts immediately as “woo-woo”. However, this “field of the invisible” has an undeniable effect on your mind and body.
A simple example of the powerful link between energy and emotion that you may have experienced is lying next to someone you love at night with your back turned. You have this sense or “intuition” that something is wrong. It is a tangible feeling that is there, even though you can’t quite put your finger on why something seems off. When you turn over to discuss this feeling, you likely uncover an intense discussion behind those “bad vibes” you sensed.
A great book is Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton and also the HeartMath Institute has some great studies on our heart brain connection
