Covid-19 Preparation: How Does Reiki Energy Work Factor In?
Maybe More Than You Realize…..
As countries around the globe lock down or prepare for lock-downs, re-openings , endless uncertain changes....it can feel the weight of the world is bearing down on us.
Long-term school closures, lost income and no end of the crisis in sight can leave the strongest of us feeling low, nervous, anxious and scared. It’s normal to feel this way and natural to creep towards panic! Being in a place of fear will do us no good... In fact, it will make us all sicker.
Is Covid-19 taking its toll on you, to the point that it is disrupting your daily life?
We are actually more susceptible when we are afraid. Fear represses our Immune system, because fear is a fight-or-flight or freeze response, a product of the sympathetic nervous system. Immune function is governed by the parasympathetic nervous system. These two systems literally cannot work in tandem. They can’t work simultaneously. The sympathetic must relinquish dominance and allow the parasympathetic to engage. This cannot happen if we steep ourselves in fear, whether culturally, communally or via the media we consume.
So how does energy work play into all of this?
First, energy modalities like Reiki , work with the body to establish Parasympathetic nervous system engagement. Meaning, it kicks our Immune system into gear, also replenishing white blood cell counts and allowing for decreased hydrogen bonding of fluids inside the body, slowing dehydration.If you want to stave off an illness, Energy work is a wonderful tool. It kicks our Immune system into gear. Second, Energy work can be done even in a quarantined or locked-down area.
Awh, Distance healing.....
This is perhaps the hardest thing for people to wrap their minds around. It was for me when I began my Reiki Master healing journey. The idea that someone could heal me when they weren’t even in the same State as me, or Country, let alone the same room, completely blew my mind. The idea that I could also learn to do that kind of healing was even more of a blessing , then I could EVER of imagined. However, since energy doesn’t have to follow the same rules or parameters that physical matter does, it can operate on a quantum level. I am able to put myself into a deep meditative state and connect with someone’s energy no matter where they are in the world. This is called ‘Distant healing’ or ‘Distance Reiki’, by just your Birthname.
Healing of this sort is absolutely possible, despite our logical brain’s propensity for disbelief. I’ve been doing this work continuously for 15 years, with incredible results. If I didn't believe in this beautiful healing energy of God's LOVE coming through...I would shut my doors. Until now, I haven’t made a strong case for Distance healing to the wider world. I have clients who believe in it, and trying to reach anyone who wouldn’t believe in it would be a waste of time.
This disease, with all its accompanying lock-downs and quarantines, forces us to look outside-the-box for healing measures when ironically we are stuck inside the house. The beautiful and timeless possibility of Distant healing remains a completely viable option for our stress management, pain relief and Immune boosting, now more than ever. None of us know how far the illness will spread or how long it will take to return to normal.
What we do know is that:
* Fear weakens the Immune system
* Energy healing boosts the Immune system
*Energy healing manages pain and stress
*Distance healing is possible & a REAL thing
*Distance healing can happen even if both practitioner and client are in lock-down situations.
Employing cautious optimism (and good hand-washing!) can go a long way. I invite you to look gently and clear-eyed at the situation, without allowing yourself to be swallowed into panic’s great gullet. And if you find yourself in a fear loop, that’s okay too. There are options for your heart, and options for your healing. One reason why I am here.
Distance Reiki is very beneficial for hospitalized and non-verbal patients , loved ones who are in comas , intubated or sedated. A person’s emotional and energetic function does not cease during a non-verbal state, So, I am able to connect with their energy , their emotional state as well as their physical needs. This is especially helpful for families in the midst of the current Covid-19 pandemic, since they can’t be with their loved ones at the hospital. This type of Reiki even works when a person is dying. Reiki energy can help support and soothe the body leading up to transition from life to death.
I helped ease my own "Papa Orv" into his peaceful transistion at 92yrs. This is incredibly helpful work because families are currently separated.
