Remote Healing Session for "ALL ANIMALS"
Sessions start at a scheduled time and last a total of 60 minutes.
Nearly all of Bayday's healing work with animals is done using Distance Energy
Healing, connecting with your animal companion’s energetic, or spirit
You will not be on the phone during your animal’s session. An email will be sent within 24 hours after session, with information on Healing session.
Before the appointment begins, try to create a quiet space for
your animal companion to be relaxed and comfortable.
connection will start and sets the intention that this session is in your
animal’s highest good.
Using a variety of transpersonal and energetic approaches, Bayday connects with
your animal companion’s spirit body and uses Energy Healing to help them release
areas where there may be stuck or dense energy.These areas are what cause physical, emotional, behavioral and spiritual
Energy Healing gets these congested areas moving again, bringing balance
back to the body.
Symptoms are usually relieved or disappear completely. Chronic conditions may
require more frequent sessions in the beginning, then decreasing frequency as
At other times, energy healing gives an animal comfort in
their final days and helps with their transitioning process.
As much as we do not like to think about it, emergencies do happen. Bayday is available 24/7 in such cases. No extra fee.
Energy Healing.. is helpful for healing conditions that are physical,
emotional, and spiritual. Benefits may include:
from past abuse, neglect
energy and vitality
energies of overwhelm, fear, anxiety, depression
& emotional health
and improved sleep
As a gentle and non-invasive healing method, these energies do not interfere
with medical treatments. Instead they enhance these treatments, promoting faster
recovery time and reducing or eliminating the need for medications.
are Healing Reactions?
Occasionally after a session, your pet may experience a healing
reaction. In the process of healing, toxins are released from the body causing
symptoms that may feel similar to the old condition or emotional issue, but in a
This is temporary and usually only lasts a couple of days.The old condition is moving
and healing is occurring.
The words and images received, are spontaneous and specific to the healing session, not actual
conversations with your animal companion.

How Do Enzymes Work and how Intuitive Healing can help
Enzymes are proteins that allow certain chemical reactions to take place much quicker than the reactions would occur on their own. Enzymes function ascatalysts, which means that they speed up
the rate at which metabolic processes and reactions occur in living organisms.
Usually, the processes or reactions are part of a cycle or pathway, with separate reactions at each step. Each step of a pathway or cycle usually requires a specific enzyme. Without the specific enzyme to catalyze a reaction, the cycle or pathway cannot be completed.The result of an uncompleted cycle or pathway is the lack of a product of that cycle or pathway. And, without a needed product, a function cannot be performed, which negatively affects the organism.
Catalysts and activation energy Reactions are not impossible without enzymes. Enzymes do not change during reactions, nor do they change the other contents of the reaction. They just speed up the rate at which all parts of the reaction react. In a chemical reaction, the reaction is said to be completed when equilibrium is reached.
Chemical reactions have forward directions and backward directions, and reactions tend to move in both directions until no more products are created from the reactants, and products are no longer converted back into reactants.
That is the point of equilibrium.
The equilibrium constant
is written as: Reactions will occur with the free energy
available in the system (system
is referring to the area where the reaction is occurring). There is always some energy in the system before a reaction begins, and this free energy is called G
The amount of change in the free energy of a reaction is labeled ΔG (the Greek letter delta, Δ, is used to represent change).
Give off energy, so they represent a negative change in free energy (-Δ G) — that is, the free energy is given off, so there is a “loss” of free energy. In actuality, the energy is just transferred. Exergonic reactions will continue until equilibrium is reached, because they yield energy.
Endergonic reactions absorb energy into the system, so the free energy in the system increases (+Δ G). This increase appears to be a “gain” in energy, when really it is just another energy transfer. Endergonic reactions kind of quit while they are ahead. Because endergonic reactions take in energy, the reactions peter out so that less energy is taken in. They usually do not reach equilibrium.
There are two theories as to how reactions occur:
In the Collision Theory
It is thought that reactions occur because molecules collide; the faster they collide, the faster the reaction occurs. The energy level that must be reached for the molecules to collide is called the activation energy. The activation energy is affected by heat, because a higher temperature increases the energy of each molecule.
In the Transition State Theory
Reactants are thought to form bonds and then break bonds until they form products. As this forming and breaking happens, free energy increases until it reaches a transition state (also called activated complex), which is viewed as the midpoint between reactants and products. Reactions proceed faster if there is a higher concentration of activated complex. If the free energy of activation
is high, the transition state is low, and the reaction is slow.
The reaction rate is proportional to the concentration of the activated complex.
If the activation energy is lower, the reaction occurs faster because more activated complexes can form.
In living organisms
The reactions that need to occur have high activation energies. So, to get reactions to occur, either the temperature must be increased, or the activation energy must be decreased. But the internal temperature of a living thing cannot be raised too high like chemicals in a laboratory can be. Instead, living organisms rely on enzymes to lower the activation energies so that reactions can occur quickly.
Without enzymes, toxic chemicals could build up in the body to dangerous levels, or the energy-producing Krebs cycle would not be able to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the main fuel of the body produced from food that is eaten and digested.
Cofactors and coenzymes: Coexisting with enzymes
Enzymes are made mostly of proteins, but they also have some nonprotein components. When these nonprotein components must be included in order for the enzyme to act as a catalyst, then the nonprotein component is called acofactor
Examples of cofactors are;
A coenzyme is a type of cofactor.
Coenzymes are small molecules that can separate from the protein component of the enzyme and react directly in the catalytic reaction. An important function of coenzymes is that they transfer electrons, atoms, or molecules from one enzyme to another.
are closely connected to coenzymes. The function of vitamins is that they help to make coenzymes.
which is one of the B vitamins, helps to make nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which is one of the coenzymes that carries electrons from Krebs cycle through the electron transport chain to produce ATP. Without NAD, very little ATP would be produced, and the organism would be low in energy.
So, with all that said, now onto, "How Reiki Intuitive Healing", can change/help with the process, energetically.
Energy healing promotes healing by enhancing energy flow and correcting disturbances in the “human energy field” or “aura” which permeates and surrounds the body. Improving the flow of energy in the energy field supports the self-healing, self-changing capacity of the body.
There is a kind of revival of ancient understandings about energy healing in the light of modern science. “Laying on of hands”, which appeared in many times and cultures, is being rediscovered and formulated into healing techniques which are accessible to people in the present time. There are also more and more people who are spontaneously becoming aware of healing “gifts”.
ENERGY HEALING WORKS DIRECTLY WITH THE ENERGETIC LEVEL OF LIFE
Since everything is energy, all healing ultimately involves energy. Most healing methods are focused on the physical, mental and emotional levels of life, without recognition of the deeper underlying energy. Energy healing works purely with the energetic level of our being.
Since everything is made up of patterns of energy, working directly with energy influences the physical, mental and emotional, as well as the spiritual level. Energy healing is thus by nature “holistic”.
If there is an illness or disturbance in the body, mind or emotions, we certainly want to address those levels. Energy healing, however, complements and supports other methods of healing, because it addresses the energy of which the body, mind and emotions are composed.
THE HUMAN ENERGY FIELD
Just as we have a physical anatomy, we have also have an “energy anatomy”. The human energy field or “aura” surrounds and permeates the physical body.
The physical body could be thought of as the most dense expression of the energy, and as only one of a number of bodies which comprise our energy anatomy
We also have “subtle bodies”, which are sometimes referred to as the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.
There are a variety of descriptions and images of the energy field from both ancient and modern sources. There are variations in these models, but many describe the aura as being in layers. Many, though not all, emphasize the importance of the chakras which are energy centers where important exchanges of energy take place.
Energy healing effects change by positively influencing the energy field.
ENERGY HEALING AS PART OF ENERGY MEDICINE
Energy healing is part of the larger field of “Energy Medicine”.
Use of herbs, crystals or sound are examples of energy medicine in that they contain “vibratory patterns” which influence the energetic patterns at work in the physiology.
Energy healing is a unique part of energy medicine in that it involves the conscious use of the energy field of the healer to affect the energy field of the “healee”.
BAYDAY ,may employ crystals or other tools, but more often it is simply the interaction of healer and healee on an energetic level which directs the work.
Again, this work can be done remotely, anywhere, anytime in the world... or simply schedule an office visit.
Healing the Chakras-with Bayday
Using Energy Healing on your Energy Body.
When it comes to energy healing, healing the chakras is the focus, more often than not.
Your body circulates energy. Much as it circulates blood, lymph, and air, your body also circulates energy (or "prana". The pathways that the energy takes are called meridians (or "nadis").
Junctions of these meridians are referred to as "chakras".
There are MANY of them, throughout the subtle bodies, I don't believe anyone knows the actual number of chakras, as new ones come into place during shifts. During a session with Bayday, all chakras can be re-programmed, re-stored and upgraded. These specific tones and frequencies are brought thru with god-source love, into your energy body.
The Major Chakras
More has been written on the chakras than can be contained in most libraries.
List of the major chakras:
Starting at the top, we have the crown chakra
Located about where an infant has his or her soft spot, this represents connection to the Divine.
Next down, we have the brow chakra or third eye chakra.
This one relates to mentality, perception, and the pituitary gland. It connects to one of three storage areas for energy.
Then we have the throat chakra.
Although thought in the West to be about communication and self-expression, this chakra has much to do with physical health as well.
In the middle we have the heart chakra.
This is the keystone, in many ways. It is where the raw physicality from below meets the sublime spiritual from above. Here we find another energy storage area.
The next one down is the solar plexus chakra.
This one deals with emotions, especially feelings of control. If you feel blown about by the winds of fate, and it hurts, this is where it hurts. You can actually see it in people's posture, if you pay attention.
Next we have the sacral chakra.
Located about where the uterus is (or would be), this chakra deals with day-to-day survival. Money, sex, creativity, these things which live just above raw survival dwell here.
And last we have the root chakra.
This one is purely about survival. It is physicality. Safety and security, instinct, all the things that we need when we wear bodies.
Now that we've touched on the major chakras themselves, we can turn to see how healing the chakras works, through energy healing.
REIKI is optimal for chakra opening. It gets the chakras to "burn clear" and get rid of the psychic gunk that causes blocks.
Chakra tones, chakra colors , chakra balancing... all come through Bayday, from the purist source of power and love from which energy works.
are Chakras and how do they work with Reiki?
word chakra is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “vortex.”
are part of the human energy system. There are seven main chakras that run from
the base of the spine to the top of the head. These chakras are said to resemble
a funnel that becomes wider as it gets farther away from the body. Each chakra
vibrates to a specific tone and color.
healthy balanced chakra will spin in an even circular motion. A highly
functioning chakra is presented as feeling whole, content, vitalized and healthy
in our bodies. Conversely, a weakened, unbalanced chakra will present in the
body as a lack of energy, restlessness, depression and feeling disconnected or
“out of sorts.”
chakras are affected by our daily life. For example, a positive experience such
as a warm hug from a loved one will affect the state of chakras positively. In
this case, perhaps the heart and sacral chakras will be filled with beneficial
energy and spin evenly, causing the person to feel love or happiness as a result
of the hug.
same can be said for negative experiences. Depending on the experience, one or
more of the chakras can be disrupted and cause a feeling of dis-ease or
unpleasantness in the body.
seven main chakras correspond to the endocrine glandular system of the human
body. Our endocrine system is responsible for regulating hormones in the body.
The hormones that are produced contribute to our overall health and well
of the most vital processes in our bodies are controlled by our hormone
regulations. For example, the way we age, our growth, reproductive systems,
metabolism, stress reactions and our ability to heal are all connected with the
hormones secreted by the endocrine system.
chakras align with the seven main endocrine glands. During a Reiki treatment the
physical body (endocrine glands) and the energetic body (the chakras) are filled
with Chi or life force energy to create balance.
you working too hard? either temporarily or as a life-style? Does life feel like
a grind? Have you lost your ability to feel joy, to play, to be creative?
Perhaps you feel numb, or your mate complains that you never express your
feelings. Maybe you've been feeling low-energy or unhappy with your life.
any of this sounds like you, it might help to have energy healing to clear and

Why balance Your Chakras?
very common to have one or more chakras that is blocked or out of balance to
some degree. This can cause disruptions in a person’s body, mind, spirit, and
life. These disruptions can range from a sense of unwellness and unease, to more
serious problems--actual dis-ease in one's body or dysfunction in one's

THE TRUTH ABOUT DRUGS
The real answer is to not to take drugs in the first place.
Drugs are essentially poisons. The amount taken determines the effect. A small amount acts as a stimulant (speeds you up). A greater amount acts as a sedative (slows you down). An even larger amount poisons and can kill.
This is true of any drug. Only the amount needed to achieve the effect differs. But many drugs have another liability: they directly affect the mind. They can distort the user’s perception of what is happening around him or her. As a result, the person’s actions may be odd, irrational, inappropriate and even destructive. Drugs block off all sensations, the desirable ones with the unwanted. So, while providing short-term help in the relief of pain, they also wipe out ability and alertness and muddy one’s thinking.
Medicines are drugs that are intended to speed up
or slow down or change something about the way your body is working, to try to make it work better. Sometimes they are necessary. But they are still drugs: they act as stimulants or sedatives, and too much can kill you.
So if you do not use medicines as they are supposed to be used, they can be as dangerous as illegal drugs.
WHY DO PEOPLE TAKE DRUGS?
People take drugs because they want to change something in their lives. Here are some of the reasons young people have given for taking drugs:
- To fit in
- To escape or relax
- To relieve boredom
- To seem grown up
- To rebel
- To experiment
They think drugs are a solution. But eventually, the drugs become the problem.
Difficult as it may be to face one’s problems, the consequences of drug use are always worse than the problem one is trying to solve with them.
WHAT IS RITALIN?
Ritalin is the common name for methylphenidate
, classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule II narcotic—the same classification as cocaine, morphine and amphetamines.
It is abused by teens for its stimulant effects. Even when Ritalin is used as a prescription drug, it may have severe effects including nervousness, insomnia, anorexia, loss of appetite, pulse changes, heart problems and weight loss. The manufacturer says it is a drug of dependency. In June 2005, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a series of public health advisories warning that Ritalin and drugs like it may cause visual hallucinations, suicidal thoughts and psychotic behavior, as well as aggression or violent behavior. Parents are SELDOM told, that a child can die, simply by taking their prescribed medication,or that children on stimulant medications have twice the future rate of drug abuse, or 1/3 of all children on these medications develop symptoms of obsessive-compulsive behavior within the first year.
- amphetamine: a powerful central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) stimulant, often called “speed.”
- STREET NAMES FOR RITALIN:
Poor man’s cocaine
WHERE IS IT FOUND?
Unfortunately, Ritalin and related “hyperactivity” type drugs can be found almost anywhere. If you are in high school or college, you are likely to have a large supply readily to hand, with “pushers” (your fellow students) eager to make an easy profit from you.
In some schools, as many as 20% of the students take the drug regularly. The Drug Enforcement Administration found that many of these schools had more of these drugs than the neighborhood pharmacy.
Why is it so common?
It is all too easy for a “friend” to take some of his little brother’s prescription pills and turn around and sell them at $5 a pop. Or a student eager for a quick fix tells a school nurse he has a “study disorder” and “can’t concentrate.” He gets a prescription and stocks up on the pills for future use, handing out extras to his friends.While the law forbids unrestricted distribution of these powerful stimulants, the sad fact remains that these substances are freely available almost anywhere.
Kiddie Cocaine, as it has been called, is handed out like candy.“The symptoms of almost an overdose kick in. The person gets very hyper, hypersensitive, hyperalert, with very intense mood swings.
stimulant: a drug that increases immediate energy and alertness but that is accompanied by increases in blood pressure, heart rate and breathing.
HOW RITALIN ABUSE STARTS
It seems so simple at first. A student gets a little behind in his studies. An exam comes up and he needs to prepare. He’ll have to stay up late to have even a chance of making the grade. Coffee gives him the jitters, but many of his friends use these pills to give the extra energy they need. Why not? A couple of bucks; one pill; an entire night of study; a feeling of “focus.”That may be where it starts, but it is very often not where it ends.
Some students are chopping up Ritalin and snorting it like cocaine for faster absorption.
“It keeps you awake for hours,”And just like cocaine or any other stimulant, that nice “up feeling” is inevitably followed by a “crash,” a feeling of fatigue, depression and decreased alertness, a feeling of “utmost clarity” turned into a state of being “crashed out and overdone” the next day. "Crash Coma"
The user soon comes to know that this “crashed out” feeling can be relieved with the “help” of another pill that gets him back up again.
And so it goes. Next may be larger doses, or snorting it for a bigger rush. Tolerance increases, so one has to use more. In these larger doses, Ritalin can lead to convulsions, headaches and hallucinations. The powerful amphetamine-like substance can even lead to death, as in the many tragic cases of children who have died of heart attacks caused by damage linked to the drug.
“I first tried Ritalin when I was in seventh grade. It was prescribed to me—they thought I had slight ADD [attention deficit disorder], because I pretended to so I could have an excuse for not doing well in school (I was just lazy). I never realized that I was getting myself addicted, and then I was no different than any other habitual drug user.“I took about 40 mg a day and I felt it put me at the top of my game. I would stay up for days in a row, to the point I suffered a severe psychotic episode. EVERYTHING seemed to be melting and morphing and I was terrified.”
WHAT DOES RITALIN LOOK LIKE?
Ritalin comes in small pills, about the size and shape of aspirin tablets, with the word “Ciba” (the manufacturer’s name) stamped on it. The 5 mg tablets are pale yellow, 10 mg tablets are pale green, and the 20 mg tablets are both white and pale yellow.It is described as a central nervous system stimulant.
However, even its manufacturer, in the drug’s package insert, admits that no one really knows how it affects the human body: “The mode of action in man is not completely understood.
”Abusers grind the tablets into a powder and snort it.
The drug is water-soluble, making it easy to convert into a liquid which can be injected.
As noted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, “pharmaceutical products diverted from legitimate channels are the only sources of methylphenidate available for abuse.” In other words, every tablet of the drug that is abused, either in its original form or ground into a powder or dissolved with water, originated from the manufacturer. None of it is manufactured on the streets.
“Now I have built up a tolerance to taking two to three 20 mg pills to get the high. I recognize my dependence....I have become ‘cracked-out’ or zombie-like." "I ended up doing a lot of stronger amphetamines that brought me down pretty quick, and I don’t know if I would have gotten interested in them if I hadn’t started using Ritalin.”
Test subjects who were given cocaine and Ritalin could not tell the difference.
Ritalin is easy to get, and cheap. Taken from someone’s prescription, stolen from a sibling or obtained by a fraudulent prescription, these tablets are then broadly sold.
The price runs from a dollar or two in school to $20 per pill on the black market.The comparison of Ritalin to cocaine is not just a slogan. Ritalin is chemically similar to cocaine. When injected as a liquid, it sends that “jolt” that addicts crave so much. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) revealed the results of studies on both animals and humans who were given cocaine and Ritalin. The test subjects could not tell the difference. The DEA concluded that, “They produce effects that are nearly identical.”SCOPE OF RITALIN ABUSEAbuse of prescription drugs such as Ritalin is increasing.
Over 7 million Americans abuse prescription drugs, including Ritalin.
It has ranked on the Drug Enforcement Administration’s list of “most-stolen” medications.
THE VICIOUS EFFECTS OF PRESCRIPTION STIMULANTS
This amphetamine-like substance causes the same types of effects on the body as other forms of speed—loss of appetite, insomnia, increased heart rate. The abuse of this drug in larger doses, especially through injection or snorting, puts an even greater strain on the body. The stress on the heart can be fatal.
Take the case of a teenager—a long-term user of Ritalin—who collapsed one day while skateboarding. Dead of a heart attack.An injection of Ritalin has an additional, horrible effect on the body. While the chemical compound methylphenidate dissolves completely in water, the tablets also contain tiny particles of insoluble fillers. These solid materials block the small blood vessels when injected into the blood stream, causing serious damage to the lungs and to the eyes.Aside from the physical impact, there are also severe emotional conditions caused by even short-term use of this drug. Hallucinations and psychotic behavior are not uncommon.A researcher in Texas found that Ritalin use may heighten the danger of cancer. This study found every one of a dozen children treated with methylphenidate experienced genetic abnormalities associated with an increased risk of cancer.
- Loss of appetite
- Increased heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature
- Dilation of pupils
- Disturbed sleep patterns
- Bizarre, erratic, sometimes violent behavior
- Hallucinations, hyperexcitability, irritability
- Panic and psychosis
- Convulsions, seizures and death from high doses
- Permanent damage to blood vessels of heart and brain, high blood pressure leading to heart attacks, strokes and death
- Liver, kidney and lung damage
- Destruction of tissues in nose if sniffed
- Respiratory (breathing) problems if smoked
- Infectious diseases and abscesses if injected
- Malnutrition, weight loss
- Disorientation, apathy, confused exhaustion
- Strong psychological dependence
- Damage to the brain including strokes and possibly epilepsy
RITALIN LEADS TO OTHER DRUGS
Rock legend Kurt Cobain started on Ritalin at age 7. Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, believed that this drug led to his later abuse of stronger drugs.
He committed suicide with a shotgun in 1994. Love was also prescribed Ritalin as a child. She described the experience this way: “When you’re a kid and you get this drug that makes you feel that [euphoric] feeling, where else are you going to turn when you’re an adult?”
A study supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that users of Ritalin and similar drugs “showed the highest percentage of cocaine abuse.”Because a tolerance builds up, abuse of Ritalin can lead users to consume stronger drugs to achieve the same high. When the effects start to wear off, the person may turn to more potent drugs to rid himself of the unwanted conditions that prompted him to abuse the drug in the first place.Ritalin itself does not lead the person to other drugs: people take drugs to get rid of unwanted situations or feelings. The drug masks the problem for a time (while the user is high). When the “high” fades, the problem, unwanted condition or situation returns more intensely than before. The user may then turn to stronger drugs since Ritalin no longer “works.”
A study of 500 students over a period of twenty years found those who used Ritalin and related drugs had a greater likelihood of using cocaine and other stimulants later in life.
.COMMON JUSTIFICATIONS (DON’T FALL INTO THE TRAP):
There are many justifications for taking this powerful drug.
Recognize them for what they are—Lies!
- Everyone is using it.
- It’s just for study.
- My brother takes it for a learning disorder, it can’t be that bad.
- It’s not addicting.
- You can control it. You don’t have to use it again if you don’t want to.
Don’t let others—including your friends—lead you into the trap.
DEATH FROM RITALIN
MATTHEW’S STORY: Matthew was a teenager who had been on Ritalin for seven years. He died suddenly in March 2000. Although he had no history of heart problems, the autopsy revealed clear signs of small-vessel damage. His parents were told by one of the medical examiners that the heart of a healthy, fully grown man weighs about 350 grams.
Matthew’s heart weighed 402 grams.
His death certificate reads: “Death caused from long-term use of methylphenidate (Ritalin).”
High doses of Ritalin lead to similar symptoms such as other stimulant abuse, including tremors and muscle twitching,
and a sensation of bugs or worms crawling under the skin.
One 17-year-old, after snorting crushed Ritalin pills and staying awake for days, went psychotic, killed his parents and severely injured his brothers and sister with a hatchet. A 14-year-old, on Ritalin since he was 7, beat another boy to death with a baseball bat. Ritalin can cause aggression, psychosis and an irregular heartbeat that can lead to death.
IT’S A CRIME TO ABUSE IT..
In the United States, Ritalin is subject to severe criminal penalties for abuse. The penalties for a first trafficking offense (which you would be guilty of even if you just shared one or two pills with a friend) includes up to twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.If death or serious injury results from a first offense, the penalty is twenty years to life in prison. If the drug is injected, it becomes a drug offense with even harsher penalties.
“I realize that my interest in and resulting dependence on speed started when I was prescribed Ritalin. At first it was every weekend, then it was every day.“I began to get hallucinations of birds flying overhead, feelings of people in the same room as me when I was alone, and the beginnings of paranoia. I used up [my friend’s] entire Dexedrine prescription within a week. Then I went back to my Ritalin and went on from there.“I don’t remember much of twelfth grade. But I do remember overwhelming depression and an inability to understand what exactly was the reason I was doing worse than ever in school. I barely graduated, and made absolutely no college plans.“At the last minute I enrolled in the local college. I was able to stay clean for about seventeen days before the need for speed overcame all. I attended class for one week, and failed miserably.” —Sam

Reiki as a preventive and curative medicine
Eastern medical philosophy has always emphasized the superiority of maintaining good health over curing illness. Reiki is a preventive medicine , you experience both its preventive and its curative functions at the same time. If you have a disease, Reiki will cure it, if not, Reiki will promote your health and longevity. This preventive cum curative quality of Reiki makes it a unique healing system.
It is natural to be healthy
It is only when certain parts of our bodies fail to function naturally that sickness occurs. The causes may be from bacteria and viruses, organic (toxins) or psychosomatic.
•Bacteria and viruses are always present in our bodies, but they are kept in check (sometimes even exploited to do useful work for us) as long as our bodies function naturally.
•Toxins are continually clogging our organs, but as long as we function naturally, these toxins will be neutralized by the chemicals produced by our body.
•Our brain is continually stressed, but again, if nature runs its course we will be adequately relieved after sleep and rest.
The Eastern concept of health is also wider than that of the West. To be healthy is not just to be free from disease. A person cannot be called healthy if he/she is often restless, irritable or extremely forgetful, cannot concentrate or sleep soundly, and has no zest for work or play.
How does Reiki promote health
First, it frees us from disease; it prevents as well as cures illness. Then it helps us to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually, giving us the wonderful benefits of health in its wider sense. The preventive and curative qualities of Reiki can be reduced to two simple principles: the cleansing of meridians and balancing of the chakras to achieve a harmonious energy flow.
How does Reiki prevent or cure contagious diseases?
When disease-causing micro-organisms attack certain parts of the body, reserve energy is channelled to meet these attacks. But if the meridians are blocked, then the flow of reserve energy is hindered, and illness results. When using Reiki you cleanse the meridians, harmonizing energy levels and promote a smooth flow of reserve energy to the areas under attack, thus restoring the balance. Reiki sessions increases our reserves of energy, thus preventing any possible future outbreak of illness.
What is Reiki
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese name consisting of 2 words Rei and Ki meaning spiritually guided life energy (commonly known as Universal Life Energy), an energy which animates us all and is found all around us.
Reiki is a form of spiritual healing using "universal life energy" channelled through me to the recipient.
Reiki helps to harmonize body, mind and spirit for yourself or anyone you want to help.
You relax, fully clothed, on a massage table, lightly covered with a sheet while I hold my hands on or above you. A treatment last 30 minutes. covering all the important organs of the body.
There is no pressure on the body making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions, sometimes hands are even held away from the body. The energy flows wherever it is required (spiritually guided) and can normally be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience!
Reiki is an effective healing method
Reiki can be used for many ailments like reducing stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma - respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, anxiety and many more. You can find treatment suggestions for specific problems under the button "How to use Reiki".

Reiki and the chakras
Covers and treats all the major chakras!! The chakras are both connected to the physical organs in our body and the different layers in the aura.
7 centers of energy
Chakra is a Sanskrit word and means "wheel". A wheel that spins around its own axis and can spin fast or slowly. A chakra will spin in relation to the energy level of your system. Where will you find these chakras? They exist within us all. In the same way that we have a physical body we also have a subtile body. Our chakras are parts of a large network of subtile energies.
Today we know that living cells from humans, animals and plants give off invisible energies. Simple groups of living tissue issue a sort of light (aura) that can be seen on a Kirlian photo. Specialized groups of cells that make up physical organs create more organized energy patterns. The human body's system consists of sensory, breathing, circulation, digestion, reproduction and secretion. There are six corresponding chakras for these bodily functions. The brain and the whole being also has one chakra, making a total of 7 major chakras. These chakras are situated at the top of the head, forehead, throat, heart, solar plexus, the navel and at the bottom of the pelvis.
The chakras and the physical body
Every chakra has a corresponding organ in our physical system.
The root chakra belongs together with the large intestine and the rectum. It also has a certain influence on the function of the kidneys.
The navel chakra belongs to the reproduction system, the testicles and ovaries and also the urinary bladder and kidneys.
The solar plexus chakra is in relation to the liver, gall bladder, stomach, spleen and the small intestine.
The heart chakra belongs to the heart and the arms.
The throat chakra relates to the lungs and the throat.
The third eye (forehead) chakra belongs to the brain, face, nose, eyes etc.
The crown chakra does not have a corresponding organ but is related to the whole being.
There is a clear connection between the condition of a chakra and the condition of the corresponding organ. A chakra can be over active, under active or in balance. Using Reiki can give the chakras balance and the organs health.
Chakras and the endocrine system
The chakras change energy from one level to another by distributing Ki (also called Chi, Prana, Mana depending on belief system) to the physical body. This is partly done through the endocrine system that regulates other systems in the body. According to tradition each chakra also corresponds to one of the major glands in the body. The Reiki hand positions not only cover the chakras but also major organs and glands.
The root chakra is in relation to the adrenal gland.
The navel chakra to the ovaries or testicles.
The solar plexus chakra is related to the pancreas.
The heart chakra belongs together with the thymus.
The throat chakra corresponds to the thyroid gland.
The third eye chakra has a connection to the pituitary gland.
The crown chakra is usually connected to the pineal gland.
The endocrine system plays a major role for the body's daily health. The glands release hormones directly into the blood stream and control all aspects of growth, development and daily activities.
Physical problems are often the result of a blockage in the energy flow in the system made up of meridians and chakras causing the organs or glands to not function properly.
The aura - the subtle body
Quantum physics describes the universe as energy, with energy and matter interchangeable. Psychology, Eastern therapy, and complementary medicine all have terms for life as energy. The aura can be viewed as an energy field surrounding the body, interacting through spiritual and psychological levels via structures called chakras. In other words the aura is an energy field that surrounds the physical body and is discernible to those of psychical sight.
The 7 main chakras have their origin in the physical body but they also exist in all the layers of the aura. The speed and vibration level of the energy is increased with each level. One can say that the human consciousness is manifested on 7 levels or in the 7 layers that is the aura.
How Reiki affects the aura
Before a Reiki treatment, a persons aura might normally only extend a few decimeters outside the persons body. The treatment strengthens the aura and gives a permanent aura of about 2 -3 meters. At the same time the consciousness, the inner strength and the ability to intuitively see what needs to be changed in order to achieve maximum health is increased. Through the Reiki treatment and the strengthening of the aura you get the tool to take control over your life and development.
During a Reiki treatment not only the organs and the energy flow within the body are affect but also the different bodies of the aura are affected. When using distance healing or the mental/emotional symbol the aura seems to be more affected than the actual organs in the body.
The different layers/bodies in the aura
The Physical body, is the most tangible manifestation of our consciousness. Its function is to be here and now, to be conscious of what we do: walking when walking, eating when eating etc. We all know the fears of the physical body - sickness, aging and death.
The Etheric body, is a thin invisible layer, approx. 2 cm thick, around the physical body. This is where the energy is reflected when it flows through meridians and chakras. The etheric body or double acts as a template for the physical body and appears as an energy matrix. It is described in Chinese medicine as meridians that transmit chi (ki) through the body. Consciousness is expressed in terms of sensations like physical pleasure or pain.
Many of our dreams can be found in the etheric body. With the aid of mantras, symbols, essence etc. one can affect the function of this part of the aura. Connected to the Root chakra.
The third body is the Emotional body. The emotional body is egg shaped and contains the other 2. This body reflects the feelings and emotions we have. Emotions like happiness, hope, love, anger, sorrow, hate are all found here. The emotional body is also connected to our past which can cause problems. The body is laced with wishes and desires from the past and this can cause tensions. It is important to learn how to handle different emotions during a day, the risk is otherwise that they become suppressed and stored in the emotional body and can later be the cause of blockages and disturbances leading to medical problems. Connected to the Navel chakra.
The Mental body's function is to teach us self knowledge. The mental body as it's name implies reflects the conscious mind, logic, intellect and active thinking.
We shape our reality with our minds. Our mind is the constructor, the builder. It reflects our ability through which we develop our learning and personality. Mental heath or mental illness is reflected in this level. Connected to the Solar Plexus Chakra.
The Astral body. Unconditional love. Connected to the Heart chakra. The astral aura is the bridge between the physical world and the spiritual realm.
The Etheric Template body (divine will) can be identified with memory and our thought processes. Here all our memories, forgotten, remembered or pushed away, are mirrored. The Etheric Template also stores the present and all the possible futures. Connected to the Throat chakra.
The Celestial body mirrors the subconscious mind that is a part of the inactive part of our brain. By listening to your subconscious, your intuition, you can make your journey through life more simple and rewarding. Consciousness expresses itself as higher feelings like universal love; love that goes beyond human beings and friends into a universal love for all life. Connected to the Third eye chakra.
The Causal body (Ketheric Template) is the last body. The energies in this body spins with a very high frequency. This is where the soul communicates with the conscious mind via the subconscious mind in the mental body. Consciousness is expressed in higher concepts of knowing or belief systems. This is where the initial creative impulse begins; not just linear knowing, but integrated knowing. Connected to the Crown chakra.
The system of meridians
The Chinese, in the 3rd millennium B.C., posited the existence of a vital energy which they called Chi (life force, life energy). All matter, animate and inanimate, is composed of and pervaded with this universal energy.
Same as we need blood to flow freely through our body's circulatory system we also need Chi to flow freely through our system of meridians. Simplified one can say that the meridians are the equivalent of our blood vessels but instead of transporting blood this system transports Chi or life energy. Sickness can occur when there is a blockage in the meridians and the Chi no longer can flow freely or when the yin and yang balance of the Chi is disturbed.
12 primary meridians
There are two systems of channels or meridians, namely primary and secondary meridians. Primary meridians pass through internal organs but secondary do not. There are 12 pairs of primary meridians with Chi flowing in continuous circulation through the following organs: lungs, colon, stomach, spleen, heart, intestines, urinary bladder, kidneys, pericardium, triple warmer, gall bladder and liver. The primary meridians are named by the organ they are connected to i.e. lung meridian,heart meridian etc.
Almost all points used in acupuncture and acupressure are situated along the primary meridians. Please note that just because the meridians are named according to the organs they pass through it does not mean that they only correspond to these organs and their functions. The meridians also consist of complex interrelated systems for the circulation of Chi.
Yin and Yang
This Chi contains two polar forces, the yin and the yang. When the yin and yang are balanced, the living system exhibits physical health; when they are unbalanced, a diseased state results. Overly powerful yang results in excessive organic activity. Predominate yin makes for insufficient functioning. Either imbalance results in physical illness. The ancient art of acupuncture and acupressure focuses on balancing the yin and the yang.
Reiki and the meridians
A Reiki treatment will balance the yin and yang and facilitate a smooth flow of Chi through the meridian system. Blockages in meridians can be dissolved by Reiki and help restore the body's healthy flow of Chi.

The sacral plexus is one of the major nerve plexuses in the body. A nerve plexus is the area where the nerves branch out and rejoin: A nerve plexus is a system of connected nerve fibers that link spinal nerves with specific areas of the body. Fibers in a plexus connect the spinal cord and the body by grouping themselves into one larger nerve. The human body consists of several nerve plexuses, including the brachial plexus, the cervical plexus, the coccygeal plexus, the lumbar plexus, the sacral plexus, and the solar plexus. . Although there are almost 100 nerve plexuses in the body, five are considered major. They include the sacral, cervical, brachial, solar, and lumbar plexus. The cervical plexus services the shoulders, neck, and head. The brachial plexus provides nerves for the shoulders, chest, arms, and hands. The solar plexus provides sensory nerves for the internal organs, and the lumbar plexus provides nerves to the back, abdomen and lower body.
The sacral plexus is located in the back of the pelvis, and provides the nerves for the pelvic area, genitals, and buttocks. It also provides some of the nerves for the legs and feet. Since the sacral and lumbar plexus provide nerves for many of the same areas, they are often combined and called the lumbosacral plexus.
Due to the effect that the sacral nerves have on the lower body, an illness that affects the plexus can cause serious problems. There are several ways that the sacral region can develop problems, including injury, autoimmune responses, or cancer. Regardless of the cause, the symptoms are similar. There is typically weakness or pain as well as a loss of sensation in the lower body. The symptoms may affect the entire area serviced by the sacral plexus, or only parts of the area. A diagnosis of problems with the sacral plexus is typically made when a physician notes that the affected body parts are all confined to the area serviced by the sacral plexus. An electromyography can confirm the diagnosis. The physician may then order a magnetic resonance imaging test (MRI) to determine the cause of the problem.The MRI will detect any tumors that may be pressing on the nerve bundles, causing problems. MRI=Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses powerful magnetic fields and radio wave energy to take pictures of the inside of an object. This method of scanning was developed primarily for use in medicine as a way to take images of structures in a patient's body, but it also has been used to study objects such as fossils and historical artifacts. An MRI is able to provide images that give information that previous scanning technology, such as X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound cannot. Patients going through treatment for cancer are also at risk for damage to the sacral plexus due to injury caused by radiation therapy. The therapy, even when directed at other parts of the body, may damage the nerves of the sacral plexus. Diabetics with uncontrolled high blood sugar may also suffer from damage to the sacral plexus. In this case, treatment is possible by bringing blood sugar levels under control. Blood sugar, also known as blood glucose, is the body’s fuel that feeds the brain, nervous system, and tissues. A healthy body makes glucose not only from ingested carbohydrates, but also from proteins and fats, and would not be able to function without it. Maintaining a balanced blood glucose level is essential to a body’s everyday performance.

How one homeopathic remedy can help bring out the best in your skin?
Sunshine and outdoor activities can challenge skin’s resources. Our balancing cell salts, cleansing soothing remedy combinations, and carefully selected array of creams, gels, sprays and ointments, let you pamper your skin and treat skin symptoms without the added worry of suppressive side effects or contra indications; but one particular homeopathic remedy with cleansing and strengthening characteristics is the cell salt Silica.
How does this homeopathic remedy "bring out the best in your skin?"
As many cells need its source for strength, the cell salt Silica helps restore weak tissues that lack the strength to expel or root out congestions and irritants.
For skin, it helps eliminate splinters, acne, eruptions and corns.
For glands and membranes, it helps the body cleanse sore throats, mature coughs, sinus and ear congestion as well as constipation and diarrhea.
Other indications include:
pale skin, nervous irritability, timidity, fatigue, a lack of vital heat; weak ankles, skin, hair and nails; symptoms that feel better with warmth and much worse in a cold draft.
Silica literally "PROMOTES EXPULSION OF FOREIGN BODIES FROM TISSUES"
Made from rock crystal, this cell salt’s source provides the strength in straw, plant stems, sponges, feathers, hair, skin, nails, bone surfaces and other tissues. Nicknamed the ‘grit’ cell salt, Silica’s strengthening action helps many conditions that need strength, cleansing or purging, especially in individuals weakened by poor nutrition or a range of stresses and disorders.
When fungi, foreign matter or weak/overtaxed cleansing systems cause skin congestions, Silica can help the body's efforts to clear away the problem.
This includes acne, splinters, blocked pores, corns, scar tissue, certain tooth pains, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus and other fungal, blocked or congested skin issues.
This homeopathic cell salt has also proven very supportive in helping clear swollen sore throats, blocked tear ducts, etc.
The colds it treats best suffer under sinus and ear congestion with dry, crusty or blocked nasal passages and hammering, burning headaches. When a winter cough will not go away, Silica might be just the solution to clear out thick yellow mucus. Of course Silica’s purging action applies to its digestive uses as well when constipation with much straining leads to smelly flatulence and eventually diarrhea. If poor assimilation of nutrients leads to improper nutrition, it offers gentle healing support. The key to Silica’s deepest uses is a want of grit– physical and sometimes moral.
It offers the most benefit to individuals with some or all of these symptoms:
nervous irritability, timidity, fear of public speaking, exam nerves, fear of needles, weak ankles, pale skin, fatigue, a lack of vital heat, and weak hair and nails.
Its offers the most benefit to patients who are concerned about their image (what people think). Though naturally chilly, they perspire (cheesy smelling). People needing Silica most feel better in a warm room with a warm hat on, and much worse in a cold draft and in winter.
