Anxiety, Self-Doubt, and Fear. Distance Reiki treatments can restore balance.

Since the end of May, I have received many calls from clients who are experiencing an unnatural increase in anxiety, fears about the future, and doubts about their own ability to succeed. These are all bright, successful people who have a history of material, emotional and spiritual success.

What seems to be happening is that they are "off center", and not without reason. The mainstream media in particular, which must report the news as it sees fit, presents a picture of our world and our planet that is most unsettling. During this time of global economic transition, many people are rightly fearful, and my post is not intended to dismiss the concerns anyone is having about their emotional or financial welfare at this time.

I do intend information for new clients who are wondering if Usui Reiki will benefit them, help them to feel more balanced, confident and emotionally secure. I am pleased to refer you to an article by a skilled Usui Reiki Master who speaks to the effectiveness of Reiki to address emotional concerns.

Energetically, one of the symptoms of stress and anxiety is an overactivity in the third eye chakra, while the crown chakra may be closed or restricted. Sometimes the throat chakra is also restricted.. meaning that the "size" or the "stregnth" of the energy moving in that wheel is less than other energy centers in the central column. This occurs because our "minds run away with us", causing us to become mentally transfixed by our worries an concerns.

Media, the financial troubles of friends and family, announcements about war, budget deficits are disturbing, and of course give "just cause" for more thinking about troubles. As well, some people are actually turning the stress inwards, blaming themselves for not being better protected, for not making better decisions, for a long list of actions not taken to ensure quality of life.

The metaphysical, and energetic constant is change. Everything, including our energy bodies, functions best in a balanced flux, a give and take if you will. However, worry can cut it's own groove in the energy record we play each day.. and over time, worry, no matter how well founded, corrupts the natural movement of energy through the chakras.

Usui Reiki is an energy modality that seeks to restore a natural balance to the human energy field. Natural in that the balance is your own rhythm.. the heart beat that is natural for you. In so doing, restricted chakras are loosed, wide open chakras are calmed, and the energy body gradually comes to rest in a condition of equipose.

It would be lovely if one could "think" one's way out of stress and anxiety, but troubles of the mind are often best addressed by healing the body, either through Reiki, massage or acupuncture. All these methods bypass the mind to create harmony in the body, thus making the body a more comfortable resting place for the mind.

Remote or distance Reiki healing is particularly helpful to combat stress, tension and anxiety because the treatment only requires that you relax, reclining comfortably at home, and allow the practitioner to send the healing energy to you. You don't have to drive, meet someone new, get dressed.. take time from your day... just choose an evening when you will have about 20 uninterrupted minutes to receive your energy healing.

I have provided a few links back my site to provide you more information, and am certain that if you are interest in choosing to schedule a Reiki treatment you will be able to find a healer you are comfortable working with. I invite you to remember that the universe is unfolding perfectly, that there really is plenty of love, money, peace, and prosperity for everyone. When we recall and vibrate at that frequency, our world becomes a better place.

Thank you for your kind attention to my post. I wish you every happiness.

Energy Healing, Clairvoyance & Henna Tattoo

As is the case with insightful questions from clients & customers, I receive their permission to post my answers to their questions on a blog. This most excellent letter came just the other day, and I chose to reply in this Energy Healing blog as the questions seem most easily answered in Energy Healing language.

It will answer the letter in a three party reply as each of the questions require specific answers. Please know that I share only my experience & observations. I certainly do not pretend to have all the answers for everyone, nor do I intend to address this reply to all healers nor all modalities.

I come from an Usui Reiki background in energy healing, and a Western Mystery tradition for the clairvoyant aspects of my work, thus I tend to err on the side of caution.
That said, here is the first question:

"I wanted to inquire about your abilities as a clairvoyant and how that may apply to your henna work. Being a henna artist as well, I obviously touch a lot of people's skin and sometimes I feel like I am being sent messages about the person that are intended for them, from spirit. I am not always sure that they will be open to hearing what I have to say and wondered what your advice on this would be."

My reply: When working with clients as a henna artist, I allow myself to be only that. I very much enjoy meeting people in a relaxed, neutral & welcoming situation where I am able to just be present to do art. If there is any clairvoyance in play, it seems to be only that henna forms a relationship with each customer, and designs often emerge that are "just what I wanted". I think all body artists hear this kind of comment, especially if they have taken a moment to really listen to their customer.

I honor that you sometimes feel that you are being sent messages about a person from spirit. I have learned that unasked for advice is often not welcome. At present, I only answer questions when asked. I also provide clairvoyant services in a sacred space, and by appointment. In this way clients are sure to be ready to receive answers to their questions, and I am certain that I have their permission to access their portion of the Akashic Record fort their greatest good.

In some cases, even with all the above boundaries in place, clients may still be anxious or even fearful about having a clairvoyant reading. While some people are very open, and welcome spiritual messages at any time and in any circumstance... others are not. I strongly prefer to do no harm.. so, if I do receive any information while providing a henna tattoo, I let that knowing just flow by. I do not attach importance to it, nor do I share it. Most of my henna clients know me as an artist, and a few as a mystic or healer, and expect that service from me.

The second aspect or second question:

" I also am becoming more recognized by myself and others as a bit of a healer and have often put the intention of healing into my work when doing henna. I figure it cannot harm them to send healing through the henna and being that it has been used for good luck and well being for milennia, it seems a good conduit for this. What are your thoughts or suggestions on this if any?"

My reply: As one of my greatest teachers one said: "Intention is everything." I intend to be of benefit to every henna customer, to offer them my full attention, appropriate touch, a beautiful design applied while they are comfortable. I intend that they feel welcome, and valuable. These seemingly simple intentions are often the most powerful of all healing gifts.

As my clients are coming for art, art is what they get. Should a customer ask for a power symbol, a healing design, or a healing experience during the henna process, I am happy to intend that their design be a healing or empowering symbol.

In fact, following the "Messages From Water" model, drawing kanji or other meaningful symbols over pulse points may become it's own healing process all together. So, I suppose the short answer is that I offer healing services when they are ordered, or requested. However, healers heal; good touch is good touch; and loving kindness shines through to bless everyone.

In the process of offering a donation based public Reiki Healing circle weekly over a period of two years, I have learned that not everyone who asks for healing really wants it. I have learned that what I might find a problem, or an area that requires healing may not be seen that way by the person coming to the circle.

The third part of the question:

"Is there any other practice I should be doing that will help me to tune into these abilities more and to be of greater service to my clients? What are the ethics behind such a practice? I appreciate any feedback that you have for me and look forward to your response." Much love and peace, Rosemary

My reply:I think Usui Reiki Energy Healing is the most excellent training to receive I wish everyone was Reiki. Usui Reiki heals the healer while healing the client. The ethics are simple, ancient, honorable and freeing. I have seen remarkable and complete healings occur with Usui Reiki.

One of the reasons this model is so pleasing to me is that it works best when I get out of the way and allow the natural Universal Life Energy to flow through me, to the client, to return that person to their own, true Energy Nature. It is good for people, plants, animals, environments.

Usui Reiki heals mentally, emotionally & spiritually in my experience. I encourage you to seek your training from a traditional Usui Reiki Master who has a Master. Although there are many "embellishments" to the original model, I am still happily practicing Reiki when asked.

I hope this post is helpful to you. Please know the tone of voice - so hard to convey in type for me - is warm, and happy. I thank you so much for writing & for allowing me to post your questions to a public forum.

Wishing you joy,

Ann George

Healing Financial Anxiety - A Meditation for Troubled Times

There are many fine books written about the benefit & power of creative visualization. One of the best is "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain. I read it long years ago.. and the concepts there changed my life. If you are able to purchase, here is the link: Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life (Gawain, Shakti) If not, I am hope you will find it in your local library.

The idea of creating, or co-creating reality is very important, perhaps crucial at this time. I am hoping all Energy Healers will begin to practice a visualization to accompany this meditation. If we begin now, I am sure the collective energy of our thinking will be of great value.

The meditation is my work, I wrote it to accompany the purchase the Moon Poured Money candles I have been making for many years. I offer you the benefit of the meditation, but retain the copyright.

I am hoping that if we all start now.. affirming wealth & practicing generosity to the best of our ability.. whether we give time, talent or treasure.. we will turn the tide of panic, anxiety, and the downward economic spiral to an even keel.

Money comes to me easily.
I prosper at everything I do
I have money in the bank, money in my pockets, money to spend & money to share.
I am one with infinite supply.
I am wealthy. I am generous.
I am comfortable and secure because I always have plenty of money. I am fortunate, blessed with abundance.
There is no limit to my wealth & for this, I am grateful.

Of course, you may or may not feel these words to be true. However, to change today, we must affirm today that we have all we seek. If we affirm for tomorrow - which never comes - we shall remain empty handed.

I wish us all every blessing. Help your neighbor, comfort a friend, share a meal.... Generosity is the antidote to poverty of all kinds.

Ever forward!

The First Cause? Energy Healing & Environmental Action

I have been feeling the Earth call for healing. But those aren't quite the words to describe the vibrational pull felt over the past few weeks. Others have called or written to comment on their growing awareness of a subtle intensity... one that is insistent but vague.

This post is triggered in part by memories of my Great Aunt Ella's trash pile in the backyard of her little clapboard house in Whynot, Mississippi. I visited there as a child (last century of course) and went out to the far back yard with her to burn the trash. At that time, there was not trash pick-up. Each family had to burn or bury what would not decompose. I remember watching the trash burn, but not the tin cans. And of seeing, after the fire had consumed the cloth & paper, a sodden pile of debris.

Today, our debris is packed into plastic bags and hauled out of sight. Our water isn't really ours, someone else is watching our well.. so we have not been taught things my mother new... you don't poison your well, you don't salt your earth.

Remembering this, I am more troubled by products I see daily. Some of these products are plastic or petroleum based, products that are not vital to life, but that actually hurt our environment. If you pause a moment, perhaps you too will notice that plug-in air freshening products may not be the most eco-friendly purchases we can make. Or, soaps that are no longer just bar soaps in paper, but dazzling, fragranced liquids in remarkable bottles... plastic of course.

As an Energy Healer, I am now coming to better understand that treating people is not the end of the journey. Every purchase I make is a statement of intent, a commitment to the healing of this an future generations. It feels good to expand my awareness. It feels good to bring bags to the market, stop all the junk mail, buy only products in cardboard containers. It feels good use biodegradable laundry soap - in fact the price, thus the sacrifice, makes the decision more valuable.

I remain forever grateful to the farm women who are my grandmothers, great aunts, distant cousins. In a few short weeks of childhood, they showed me a world view that may well serve to save me from the karma of convenience as a priority.
