Release Through Reiki, Massage, and Self-care

This past weekend Amanda Gardiner, of Intuitive Nature, and I hosted a meditation workshop and we discussed releasing detrimental thoughts and working with energy, so what you desire will come about through the quantum field. We discussed how amazing your body is at doing things we don’t think about–pumping your blood, regenerating cells, digesting your food, etc.–and how your thoughts, negative and positive, have an affect on your body. Much like my blog on thoughts, we discussed how one can rewire the brain to work to your benefit to heal your body and mind and let go of that which no longer serves you.

Thoughts can start out and remain singular or become beliefs when there is a cluster of thoughts around a particular issue. For example the thought, “My knee hurts,” can stay solitary if there is a day where you have knee pain because you twisted your leg. Or, this thought could eventually evolve into a belief due to the thoughts of, “My knee hurts because my dad has bad knees,” “Bad knees run in my family,” “I will never have a good knee because my family has never had good knees.” This becomes a belief about a particular issue, in this case, a knee problem. “[Your belief system has to change in order to heal…” (Allen-LeBlanc 39). Oftentimes we become attached to our beliefs; they come to define us. And, many come to be addicted to negative stress hormones much like becoming addicted to sugar, caffeine, or drugs.  So letting go can be difficult but definitely can be done with practice. For some it may seem to come easier but the key, no matter if it seems difficult or easy, is visualization. When you visualize you change and rewire your brain, you tap into that neuroplasticity and then you start to manifest because you are throwing your thoughts and visualizations into the quantum field (that field of energy surrounding us all–from our tiny cells to the planets) and you begin to change your beliefs at a biological level in causing your brain to stop and rewire.

One wonderful way to start changing those beliefs and getting your mind to a calm state to rewire your brain is through Reiki. Reiki utilizes the energy that is within us all (everything is energy and energy is everything) to help guide the body to self-heal. It allows your body to shift into a state of being present and mindful so change and healing can take place. Reiki can help bring a person into a quiet state and allow the body and mind to remember that self-healing can happen. Reiki allows a person to truly release because the energy moves and flows, and much like meditation it stops the brain from focusing on the detrimental beliefs.

Combined with Reiki massage is another beneficial way to dive deep into the thought changing and healing process. Massage is meditative and in circulating the blood, the lymph, and releasing muscle tension it allows a person to go into a state of relaxation and calm. The energy work with Reiki helps keep the mind calm if there is a lot of muscle tension or pain that needs released. Even with the therapist working to relieve the muscles, it’s not her or him releasing the pain, it’s your body remembering it can let go. This memory within your body triggers your mind to let go of those beliefs and you can really begin to heal.

Changing your thoughts and beliefs, experiencing Reiki, and getting massage are all examples of self-care and self-love. Self-love is not “[giving] into the idea that you are a victim and cannot free yourself from suffering” (Fairchild 169). Rather, self-love is seeing your worth. When you see your worth and see the awesomeness that is your body, mind, and spirit you begin to understand your inner power. That inner power within you is healing. That inner power is within us all and can heal you. All you need to do is look in the mirror and say, “I am a powerful being capable of healing,” and your brain will take a step back, your body will pause, and you will feel that energy, that flow, and you will then have that belief, even if it’s a belief the size of a crumb. That crumb will shake your world. Take care of you.
