Healing the Healer: How to use Reiki guidance to heal your body and your client

gtThis blog written by Reiki Master and Fellowship member Jacquie Hansen.  In our world around us if you have been tuning into news one of the leading causes of disease is inflammation in our bodies. This has many causes that separately would not be a big deal but when put together is a caustic combination. This combination is stress, chemicals and pesticides in both food and environment, and an overall lack of self-love. Reiki is an amazing healer and has been shown to greatly reduce inflammation in the body and activate the parasympathetic system to help us heal. But what do we do when we (or our clients) are systemically inflamed? I want to share my story and how Reiki and my Reiki guides have shown me how to heal through the use of therapeutic nutrition.
My Story: In my experience I was born with an overgrowth of candida and fungus that I spent my life learning to heal and learn from. My journey has been frustrating at times and I felt more than once that there was no way to cure my disease. But I kept challenging the Universe, tuning into Reiki, asking the question: what would help me heal? Through this earnest question I learned so much about nutrition (even to get a degree in nutrition), candida, fungus in the body, anti-inflammatory diets, and new innovate ways companies are providing products that are affordable and will finally allow me to heal the body. I know that I needed to be healed, to be free of inflammation so that I could more fully and calmly live in this world. So I share this with you to give you some nutritional advice I learned along the way and also ways to navigate the vast amount of knowledge and “experts” there are out there ever ready to give out advice and charge you a lot for it.
Throughout this journey I have shared some insights with friends and family but never sought out to “show the world” what I know. It’s been a slow guidance and really until the last 6 months or so that it’s been trickling into my Reiki Healing practice. So it feels like a natural shift and not contrived. I am fully convinced that in completely committing to healing my body I am healing our world.
Case Study: While conducting a treatment with Susan (name changed for privacy) I was able to tune into her needs. She was having symptoms of pain in arm and shoulder. She was also highly stressed. Now I believe that her guides using nutritional knowledge I already have gave me insight into what she needed. I was guided to suggest a Tumeric supplement to naturally help with pain and inflammation in her body. It was exactly what she needed.
Be your own guiny pig. From my study of yoga the philosophy has encouraged self study. To try things out on ourselves and see how we feel after. I also am a scientist by nature so this route appealed to me. I noticed when I worked on a farm in Costa Rica and at fresh food daily I felt so good, energized and I felt Reiki strongly. When I returned I made an intention to find fresh foods and not have it be costly. So I learned to forage for edible weeds and even volunteered at a local organic farm. I was also introduced to the concept of “superfood” green powders. I balked at this due to the cost but even the expensive brands are about $1 a serving which is a lot less than I spend on a coffee or smoothie. I’d rather be putting lots of nutrition in my body than a cup of coffee or tea daily. I also experimented with this and noticed more energy, a better feeling of well-being, and better regulation of my body temperature. Another experiment was using raw turmeric in smoothies. I went from being mostly dependent on ibuprofen to not having used any for about a year. It’s amazing stuff! One more huge shift was when I started using probiotics. I had always bought the cheapest out there and had no positive results. But when I started buying a more expensive kind, I really noticed a difference. The brain fog I had been living with was lifted, I felt smarter and clearer than I ever had in my life. I have since moved to a cheaper and possibly more effective one. I suggest when doing and trial run with anything new it’s important to try something for at least 5-7 days and journal how you are feeling and doing. If possible do it for a month so you can really notice the shift. It takes 28 days to cycle our cells and fully renew (in general for most of the body) so this is a great way to experiment to see if something is working for you!
Things to try:
Tumeric: reduced inflammation, pain relief. I recommended raw but isn’t everywhere (I get it at my local CO-OP). Consume with white or black pepper to increase the absorption of the vital chemicals.
Supergreen powder. The one I use daily is Skoop as they also have a great support for local farmers (full disclosure I also am a rep). Syncro-Genesis is also great and the owner’s blog is extremely insightful.
Foraging. I got my start from finding a foraging book for my local area. Each place is different so search out local experts and go for a walk with them!
Support local farms; Community Supported Agriculture(CSA). If buying a box seems too costly consider volunteering or splitting one with a neighbor. It was a great way to support local community and eat super healthy food!
Probiotics. 2 kinds I use: Garden of Life, Raw Probiotics and Garden of Life, Ultra Primal Defense.
