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.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects as many as 30 million men in the United States (18 million men over the age of 20), 75 percent of which do not seek treatment
Reiki treatments can help with the underlying issues.
I get it, guys... you’re embarrassed and don’t feel comfortable addressing the issue with your doctor, let alone your partner. But you need to know treatment is available. And I'm not talking about the little blue pill. Viagra and similar medication won’t cure ED if the underlying cause isn’t treated first. This is where Reiki comes in.
Chronic diseases, like heart disease and diabetes, are some leading causes of erectile dysfunction.
Some lesser known are:
Vitamin D deficiency: a risk factor for heart attacks,
congestive heart failure, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), strokes, high blood pressure
Apart from soaking up a safe amount of sun....
Vitamin D is better sourced from
food than supplements such as:
Small servings of pork and beef
...Environments prone to
depression and anxiety, like health care workers,
firefighters, and police officers, etc., Are more likely to cope by smoking,
drinking, and taking antidepressants — each a risk for ED.
Anxiety and depression are the leading "psychological causes" for
Erections require the nervous
system to trigger them, and if the system is depressed or distracted, then it
You Watch Too Much Porn
Excessive pornography is associated with lower self-esteem,
poorer relationship quality, and lower sexual satisfaction.
You Don’t Floss
More than 15% of men with ED also suffer from
periodontitis — a severe form of gum disease. A chronic inflammatory condition.
The hard, narrow seat of a bike can desensitize and damage the nerves and
blood vessels in your pelvic floor. Men who frequently go bicycling, and even horseback riding are at an increased risk for this kind of damage. The
damaged blood vessels are what contribute to ED.
You Snore Way Too Much...
apnea can cause high blood pressure and other cardiovascular disease, memory
problems, weight gain, impotence, and headaches.
Americans are affected by sleep apnea, 63 percent experience relationship problems
(including but not limited to ED), 69 percent experience reduced sexual desire,
and 46 percent experience reduced arousal. The good news: sleep apnea, thus ED, can be treated. Again...This is where Reiki Treatment can help.
You Have A Big Neck...
Men with larger necks are at an increased risk of developing erectile
dysfunction. “Larger neck circumference is also associated with sleep apnea, which
is itself associated with low desire.”
The bottom line: The cause for your ED may not be what you think. ED is often believed to be a warning sign
of other serious health conditions. Don’t let embarrassment keep you from an
overall satisfying life.
What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
Is when you cannot get or keep an erection
firm enough to have sex.
- Can get an erection sometimes, though not every time
- Can get an erection, yet it does not last long enough for sex
- Are unable to get an erection at all
ED is sometimes called impotence
How does an erection occur?
An erection occurs when blood flow into the penis increases, making the penis
larger and firmer. Hormones, blood vessels, nerves, and muscles all work
together to cause an erection. When your brain senses a sexual urge, it starts
an erection by sending nerve signals to the penis.
Touch may cause this urge. Other triggers may be things you see or hear, or
sexual images or thoughts.
When your brain senses a
It starts an erection by sending nerve signals to the
The nerve signals cause the muscles in the penis to relax and let blood flow
into the spongy tissue in the penis. Blood collects in this tissue like water
filling a sponge. The penis becomes larger and firmer, like a blown-up balloon.
The veins then shut off to keep blood from flowing out. An erection requires
healthy blood vessels.
After orgasm or when the man is no longer aroused, the veins open up and
blood flows back into the body.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction often has more than one cause. Many diseases can damage
nerves, arteries, and muscles. Some can lead to ED, such as:
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes, when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high
- Clogged arteries
- Heart and blood vessel disease
- Chronic kidney disease
- Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that attacks the nerves
- Treatments for prostate
cancer, including radiation,
surgery to remove the prostate, and hormone treatments
- Injury to the penis, spinal cord, prostate, bladder, or pelvis
- Surgery for bladder cancer
- Peyronie’s disease, in which scar tissue, called a plaque, forms in the
Mental health problems such as the following can also cause or worsen ED:
- Fear of sexual failure
- Low self-esteem
Even when ED has a physical cause, mental health problems can make ED worse.
For example, a physical problem may slow your sexual arousal, which may make you
more nervous and worsen your ED.
In addition, ED can be a side effect of many common medicines.
A small number
of ED cases result from low testosterone,
a male hormone.
Who gets erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction affects men of all races and in all parts of the world.
Men are more likely to have ED as they get older. For example, ED occurs in
- About 12 percent of men younger than 60
- 22 percent of men age 60 to 69
- 30 percent of men age 70 or older
See Your Doctor if You Have Erectile Dysfunction, as Erectile
Dysfunction Could Mean You Have a More Serious Condition
If you have problems getting or keeping an erection, and the problems last
for more than a few weeks, you should talk with your Doctor/Urologist—
a doctor who specializes in sexual and urinary problems. Don’t be shy about seeking help.
Your doctor treats medical problems every day.
How does my doctor find the cause of my erectile
To find the cause of your ED, your doctor may
- take your medical and sexual history
- ask you questions about your mental health
- give you a physical exam
- test your blood ..Blood Tests.. can show possible causes of ED, such as diabetes, clogged blood vessels, or chronic kidney disease. Low levels of testosterone in your blood can explain why you may have lost interest in sex
- give you a nighttime erection test
- perform an injection test
- perform a Doppler penile ultrasound
Changing medicines you take to treat other health problems.
Talk with your doctor about all the medicines you are taking, including
over-the-counter medicines. The doctor may find that a medicine you are taking
is causing your ED.
Counseling. Counseling can help couples deal with the
emotional effects of ED. Some couples find that counseling adds to the medical
treatment by making their relationship stronger.
Surgery to repair blood vessels. Doctors treat some cases of
ED with surgery to repair the blood vessels that carry blood to the penis. This
type of surgery is more likely to work in men younger than 30.
How can I prevent erectile dysfunction?
More physical activity .
Eating, Diet, and Nutrition: whole-grain foods, fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy foods, and lean meats.
A diet that causes you to be overweight and have heart and blood vessel disease can also lead to ED.
You should avoid foods high in fat and sodium, the main part of salt.
You should also avoid drinking too much alcohol, or using illegal drugs.
Homeopathy medicines for Erectile Dysfunction
These are some among the many homeopathic remedies which cater to relieve ED
Agnus castus: This remedy may be helpful if problems with
impotence develop after a man has led a life of intense and frequent sexual
activity for many years. A cold sensation felt in the genitals is a strong
indication for Agnus castus. People who need this remedy are often very anxious
about their health and loss of abilities, and may have problems with memory and
Argentum nitricum: This remedy may be helpful if a man's
erection fails when sexual intercourse is attempted, especially if thinking
about the problem makes it worse. People who need this remedy are often nervous
and imaginative. A person who needs Argentum nitricum is usually warm-blooded,
with cravings for both sweets and salt.
Caladium: This remedy may be helpful to a man whose genitals
are completely limp, despite having sexual interest. Nocturnal emissions can
occur without an erection, even if dreams are not sex-related. A person who
needs this remedy often craves tobacco.
Causticum: This remedy may be indicated if physical pleasure
during sex has diminished and sexual urges are reduced. The person feels tired
and weak, and may experience memory loss, with a compulsive need to check things
(to see that doors are locked, etc.) Prostate problems may be associated with
impotence, and urine may be lost when the person coughs or sneezes.
Commonly called club moss, is a wonderful homeopathic remedy.

be troubled by memory loss. They often lack self-confidence (though some may
overcompensate by acting egoistically). People who need this remedy often have
digestive problems with gas and bloating, and an energy slump in the late
afternoon and evening.
Selenium metallicum: Selenium is a nutrient needed by humans
in micro amounts. It is widely distributed in nature. Brazilian nuts, sea-foods,
yeast, whole grains are all excellent sources of selenium. Homeopathic remedy is
highly potent and has a wide curative spectrum for disorders like impotency,
chronic fatigue syndrome, sterility, depression etc.
This remedy is often helpful to men who have diminished sexual ability,
especially if the problem starts after a fever or exhausting illness. The person
feels weak and exhausted, but interest is usually still present. Erection is
slow, insufficient, weak and has involuntary seminal emissions. unusual hair-loss body hair
or eyebrows) can also suggest a need for Selenium.
Staphysagria: Staphysagria is a homeopathic remedy made from
the seeds of the Delphinium Staphisagria, which has lovely purple-blue flowers,

Compulsive Nail Biting?
Nail-biting is fairly common, but for some it is more than just a bad habit.
It can become quite serious, as people who suffer from compulsive nail-biting may experience bleeding, bruises, infections, or even permanent damage to the fingers.
The behavior is often unconscious, and people with this compulsion may have difficulty stopping because they may be unaware of their actions.
There are a lot of nervous habits out there, but nail biting is, by far, the most common. It is a hard habit to break.
Nail-biting may lead to shame and anxiety, which can result in more of the behavior.
Nail biting can be a sign of deeper emotional issues in some people such as extended stress, or prolonged anxiety.
About 50% of all kids between the ages of 10 and 18 bite on their nails. That is a lot of kids, either way you look at it!
Not only that, about 23% of kids that are between ages 18 to 22 bite on their nails as well.
The good news is that most people stop biting their nails as they grow older. In fact, only about 10% of adults bite their nails.
Boys tend to bite their nails a lot more often after the age of ten,and girls before the age of ten.
Why nail-biters continue their behaviors, and it can be more that just a matter of will-power.
- Self-Soothing: When stressed, many people feel a need for self-soothing and find they feel better when they bite their nails. It has a sort of calming effect on their nervous systems and reduces levels of stimulation.
- Stimulation: On the other hand, when people are bored or inactive, nail-biting may provide a needed level of stimulation for the nervous system. It may help keep a person alert or awake when they would otherwise become bored or distracted.
Dental problems can also come about from too much nail biting, and increases your risk of infection and nail fungus .
That is because your skin becomes torn, and infections have a way into your body.
Long term fingernail biting can cause deformed looking nails.
At Vibrational Light & Energy, Bayday can re-train the brain not to do that.
Reiki can help in returning the bodies system to their natural state of balance,thus releasing the old pattern of nail biting.The goal is to consciously create new learned, non-destructive behaviors.
Nail-biting can become a major focus of life and can interfere with relationships, work, and general happiness. Not recognizing the problem as a real disorder, many do not seek treatment.
For most people, nail biting is not something that you go to the doctor for.
People with compulsive nail-biting may feel crazy and out of control, but not know what to do or where to go for help.... Fortunately, nail-biting responds fairly well to Reiki Treatment.
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". (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.)
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive a Reiki treatment . As in any healing the first step towards a healthier life is a desire to be healed.
Reiki - a powerful and gentle healer
•Promotes natural self-healing
•Balances the energies in the body
•Balances the organs and glands
•Strengthens the immune system
•Treats symptoms and causes of illness
•Adapts to the natural needs of the receiver
•Enhances personal awareness
•Relaxes and reduces stress
•Releases blocked and suppressed feelings
•Aids meditation and positive thinking
Reiki will enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels.
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.

STROKE: Remember the 1st Three
Letters..... S. T. R.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little
fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics)
....she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate
of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself
the rest of the evening.
Jane's husband called later telling everyone that
his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had
suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a
stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a
helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke
victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a
stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized,
diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours,
which is tough.
Thank God for the sense to remember the '3'

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to
identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke
victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the
symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a
stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to
*Ask the person to
TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these
tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the
person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one
side or the otherthat is also an indication of a stroke.
Vibrational Light & Energy:
Rieki Healing Energy has been used to treat men's health concerns for thousands of years and is growing in popularity.
The reason for this growth in popularity is that many health issues that men face, such as high blood pressure, prostate problems and depression, respond extremely well to energy treatments.
Here is a list of five health issues that affect men and how acupuncture can help:
Cardiovascular disease is the leading men’s health threat with heart disease and stroke topping the list of the first and second leading causes of death worldwide. By integrating Reiki and Oriental medicine into your heart healthy lifestyle, you can dramatically reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Taking small steps to improve your health can reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease by as much as eighty percent. Steps to prevention include managing high blood pressure, quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, reducing stress and improved sleep - all of which can be helped with Reiki.
Reiki has been found to be particularly helpful in lowering blood pressure. By moving blocked energy at specific sites along the wrist, inside the forearm or in the leg, I have been able to stimulate the release of opioids, which decreases the heart’s activity and its need for oxygen. This, in turn, lowers blood pressure.
Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in men. Tobacco smoke causes ninety percent of all lung cancers. If you are ready to quit smoking, Reiki can help.
Reiki has shown to be an effective treatment for smoking. Reiki treatments for addiction and smoking cessation focus on jitters, cravings, irritability, and restlessness; symptoms that people commonly complain about when they quit. It also aids in relaxation and detoxification.
The prostate is prone to enlargement and inflammation as men age, affecting about half of men in their sixties and up to ninety percent of men as they approach their seventies and eighties. If left untreated, benign prostate gland enlargement, which presents with symptoms such as frequent nighttime urination, painful urination, and difficult urination, can lead to more serious conditions such as prostate cancer, urinary tract infections, bladder or kidney damage, bladder stones, and incontinence.
Reiki can be used to treat prostate problems to relieve the urinary symptoms and prevent the more serious conditions from occurring. The few studies completed on Reiki and prostatitis show positive results with participants noticing an marked improvement in their quality of life, decrease in urinary difficulties, and an increase in urinary function.
Depression and Mental Health
Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death among all men; for young men it's higher. While experts previously thought depression affected far more women than men, it is now believed that that men’s tendency to hide depressed feelings and not seek professional help has skewed the numbers.
When suffering from depression, brain chemicals and stress hormones are out of balance. Sleep, appetite, and energy level are all disturbed. Reiki can alleviate symptoms associated with depression and mental health issues by helping to rebalance the body’s internal environment.
The growing body of research supporting the positive effects of acupuncture on depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain syndrome is so strong that the military now uses acupuncture to treat troops with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and combat stress syndrome.
While sexual health concerns may not be life threatening, they can still signal significant health problems. Two-thirds of men older than seventy and up to thirty-nine percent of forty year old men report having problems with their sexual health.
Reiki is well known for improving men’s sexual performance. Chinese Emperors took their sexual health quite seriously and would consult with a team of physicians if they experienced any difficulties in the bedroom.
Reiki can be used to treat premature ejaculation, low sperm count, diminished sperm motility, erectile dysfunction, male climacteric (menopause) and increase libido.
