Reiki and the Corona Virus
 
In the past few months, we have been inundated with increasingly alarming reports and information about the global spread of COVID-19
In a situation like this, it is all too easy to feel powerless and fall into fear.
However, the good news is that Reiki is here to guide us through.
In my eyes, the  health situation represents a call for humanity to recognize and accept the inherent Oneness of All, which we so far have woefully and stubbornly resisted; a great imbalance exists which must be corrected if humanity is to continue.
Balance is a crucial component of wellness, and we know that Reiki restores balance as it grounds us to Mother Earth, centres us in our hearts, and connects us to Spirit.
 As Reiki practitioners, we can make a compelling contribution toward restoring this balance and dissipating the intense energy of fear and hopelessness circulating globally, simply by inviting Reiki to guide us and lead the way through the darkness.                 
                                                          
 
It is understandable to feel fear and worry currently and allow yourself to feel this way but move on from this feeling and know that the universe is working for us at all times.    
Top Tips to Shift the Energy Surrounding this pandemic
 Self-Reiki and Self-Care
 
Self-care includes good hygiene practices such as bathing, hand washing (channel Reiki while doing so), a nutritious diet, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, etc. When we combine those practices with daily self-Reiki, we are better able to maintain a state of health. Even a few minutes a day of self-Reiki can make all the difference, as it raises our vibration and boosts our immune system.
Incorporate Reiki into Daily Life
Reiki easily integrates into our everyday lives and raises our vibration as it does so. Some suggestions include: channelling Reiki to your food and drink, initiating Reiki during household chores, inviting it into your workspace, intending that Reiki surround and fill you as you travel, and at the end of the day, intending that it flow as you sleep. These are just a few examples; Reiki will likely guide you to others. And remember to keep Reiki with you throughout the day to elevate your vibration and the energy of everything you do.
Fill your Home with Reiki
It is always helpful, to surround and fill your living space with Reiki. This is easily accomplished through intention, as well as symbols if you are Reiki 2 or above. Reiki’s extremely high vibration envelops your home and its occupants with loving, protective energy, as it raises the frequency of everything it touches.
 Distant Reiki!
Reiki’s energy is unrestricted by time and space, which makes it accessible to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Because of the current health situation, I have suspended all in-person sessions and events. However, I have made myself available for distant Reiki sessions and hope many others will do the same.
 Send Reiki to Situations and Events!
 
On the other hand, permission is not an issue when sending Reiki to a situation, event, or place, which gives Reiki practitioners a degree of latitude when working with distance healing. We are all aware of the turmoil and chaos that exist in today’s world and are also mindful that Reiki, in its infinite wisdom, can help lessen their effects.
Therefore, sending Reiki to situations, whether local, national, or global, is highly recommended. Reiki raises the vibration of all it encounters, with no exception. For example, sending Reiki to the pandemic with an intention for deep healing and blessing is perfectly acceptable, and strongly suggested.
 Practitioners can send Reiki individually or as part of a virtual group; consider participating in online group distant healing events. Group events radically increase the healing potential and create a powerful group energy signature that carries a very high vibration.
**This is the reason I am sharing reiki every night at 9pm with my group and the world.  My reiki practice has increased during this time and I have chosen to focus my energies on improving the energy of this planet.**
 
 
                                      
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What Can be done to support Immunity

This article is taken from my Higher Nature herbal Account and it is help and advice on how you may want to boost your immune system. Prevention is better than cure.

There is a range of immune supporting supplements and I am sure you are aware of the most common ones, namely vitamins C, D, zinc and probiotics. However, there are also several other nutrients that are less well known but are particularly supportive of the immune system such as olive leaf extract, beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans and grapefruit seed extract. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is widely researched in its ability to regulate the immune system and has long been used for the treatment of colds and flu. It has been found to shorten the length of a cold and in trials was shown to prevent pneumonia. A number of studies have also demonstrated its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. (2)

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays a large role in the health of the body and especially in boosting immunity. As many of your clients may be deficient, especially during the winter months, supplementation is always advised for everyone. A deficiency has been implicated in immune system dysfunction and optimal doses have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects as well as enhancing the natural substances in the body that help fight infection, according to one 2018 study. (3) The British Medical Journal also found that supplementing with Vitamin D reduced the risk of respiratory infections. (4)

Zinc

Also well known in supporting immune function, zinc helps regulate the pathways between the immune cells and is known for being both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant as reported in Nutrients journal. (5) It plays a key role in the body and deficiency has been implicated in many illnesses. (6)

Beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans

Beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans is branded as Wellmune® which is derived from a proprietary blend of yeast known Saccharomyces cerevisiae, with many research studies to demonstrate its effectiveness on immunity. It works in the body by helping to prime the immune system by binding to the immune cells. This means that any pathogen is identified and killed off more quickly. A study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition showed that supplementing with Beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans can reduce the duration and severity of respiratory tract infections. (7) In addition a 2010 study also showed a reduction on both upper respiratory tract symptoms as well as an improved mood state and increased energy levels. (8) Not only do they help support the immune system but may also help with your clients suffering from higher levels of stress, especially with the current fears felt by many people at the moment.

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract is a lesser known supplement which may also assist immune function. Oleuropein is a polyphenolic compound from the leaves of the olive tree. It is thought to have many health promoting benefits, specifically anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activities, as reported in the Journal of Medicinal Food. (9) Another study in Scientia Pharmaceutica reviewed its pharmacological components, showing it to have anti-viral properties. (10).

Probiotics

We know that good health begins in the gut with 70% of our immune system located in the microbiome. Probiotics will provide extra support to optimise gut health and keep the immune system functioning well. A study in BioMed Research International suggested that probiotics have the ability to prevent certain pathologies and certain strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium play important roles in immunity by potentiating the function of natural killer cells in the body. (11)

Grapefruit Seed Extract

Grapefruit seed extract, available in liquid form to be diluted with water, is also known to have a variety of uses. A study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine that it may be effective particularly as an anti-fungal, anti-microbial and anti-viral (12). It has also shown to be effective as a disinfectant agent against some bacteria and viruses, according to a 2019 study. (13)

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver is thought to have antibacterial properties due to its silver ions which bind to the DNA of bacteria and preventing them from spreading. Before the invention of antibiotics, it was used to treat and prevent infections.

Diet and lifestyle approaches

As with all nutritional protocols, the approach has to be multi-faceted. Even though supplements are important, they work alongside the diet and lifestyle in helping your clients to stay well and maximise their immune system function. Encourage a wide range of vegetables and fruits to ensure the benefits of the vitamins and minerals they have to offer, alongside whole grains and good sources of protein, which helps provide the amino acids needed to build immune cells. It may also be helpful to include turmeric and garlic in the diet as both may have immune boosting properties.  Turmeric, specifically its compound curcumin, has been used in Eastern medicine for centuries due to its health promoting benefits. It has grown in popularity in recent years as a supplement and has been shown to play an important role in preventing and treating various illnesses, according to a 2017 study. (14) Garlic is also known to contain properties that may have a positive role on the immunity of the body. One study in the Journal of Nutrition showed that when consumed as a supplement for a 90 day period, it reduced the symptoms of cold and flu. (15)

Consumption of refined carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol should be minimal as they are highly inflammatory and can lower the body’s defences.

In terms of lifestyle, adequate rest is essential for the immune system as it gives the body time to repair so ensure your clients implement good sleep hygiene. At times like these, when stress levels tend to be high, encouraging relaxation activities and taking steps to lower stress is just as important in helping to stay well and bolster immunity.
