The quantity and quality of our energy flow deeply affect our emotions, thoughts, and reactions. The quality of our relationships, productivity, creativity, and health all depend upon creating a high level of harmoniously flowing energy. The following techniques and ways of life will aid us in building a freer and more positive energy flow and raise our vibrations. And Reiki can aid in boosting almost all of these techniques!
Breathing Techniques: These are essential for the abundant flow of vital energy throughout the body and mind. Bio-energy is the basis of all physical and mental functions. Breathing exercises are one of the most effective ways to increase our energy level and keep it steady and harmonious so we will be less susceptible to low emotional states or illness.
Daily Deep Relaxation: This will calm the muscles, nerves, and all other bodily systems, and thus rejuvenate the body and the mind. Deep relaxation contributes to the development of a strong and healthy immune system as well as a form of self-therapy for psychosomatic illnesses. And Reiki helps promote relaxation! Learning to give yourself Reiki can be a beautiful form of self-care! (Check out my Reiki 1 courses in-person & online! Or book a session to receive Reiki energy healing)
Creative Self Expression: This is much more important to our physical, emotional, and spiritual health and harmony than most people imagine. Humans are creative beings. Our purpose on Earth is to create in some way. We might create a painting, a piece of music, a dance, a family, a business, etc. Creative self-expression is essential for our health, harmony, and happiness.
Meaningful Activity: This is necessary for us to feel that our life is worth living. If we do not see what we are doing as meaningful, useful, or helpful in some way, we lose our reason to exist, and our health and happiness gradually deteriorate. Even if your paying-the-bills job isn't your #1 passion, it's important to make time for activities that seriously light you up!
Massage: Shiatsu massage, polarity massage, spiritual healing, Reiki, and other such energy-oriented types of massage can be especially effective in relaxing the nervous system and reducing negativity.
Proper Diet: Few of us realize the powerful effect of a proper diet not only on our physical health, but also on our emotional, mental, and spiritual states. A clean diet can create greater health, more positive emotional states, clearer mental functioning, and increased spiritual attunement. And you can amplify those effects by giving Reiki to your food before you eat it!
Vitamins: If we suspect our emotional state may also be the result of a worn-down nervous system, we might benefit from a strong multivitamin and mineral supplement for one month.
Fasting: We can dramatically improve how we feel with short one-day fasts or a “mono-diet” in which we eat only one type of food, such as apples, watermelon, or grapes. When fasting, some may experience an increase in symptoms if a “healing crisis” is provoked. A beginner in this process should be assisted by an experienced guide.
Herbs and Flower Essences: Some herbs can be very calming and/or invigorating, offering an extra boost that may give us the needed optimism we need to make internal changes.
Daily Physical Exercise: The body is a living machine, and like all machines, it needs to move or it will begin to develop problems and kinks. Exercise is essential not only for a healthy muscular, skeletal, and circulatory system but also for a relaxed nervous system and balanced endocrine system. This systemic harmony is necessary for emotional and mental peace.
Cleansing Techniques: One simple cleansing method is to increase the number of showers or baths. Contact with water can be healing and calming.
Emotional Release: We might need to partake in a program of emotional release under the guidance of an experienced professional, who can help us release pent-up emotions that undermine our health and energy level. Reiki can also help release blocked or stuck emotions, resolve emotional pain from old wounds, and dissolve old emotional patterns.
Social Harmonization: We need to discover and strive to overcome any fears or beliefs that prevent us from feeling comfortable with others. Find your tribe! And make time to be with people who make you feel like your best self.
Spiritual Orientation: Each of us has our own personal relationship with the universe. Whether or not we adhere to any particular religion, it is important for our inner balance that we feel and cultivate our relationship with the whole as humanity, nature, or Spirit. Reiki can also help us connect to source and feel a sense of knowing and trust about our path and purpose in life.
Self Knowledge: We need to understand our own inner mechanisms, needs, desires, fears, expectations, beliefs, and subconscious workings in order to free ourselves from the negative emotions and mechanisms, which undermine our health, happiness, and relationships. And self-knowledge can be very empowering and uplifting! Reiki can help us connect with ourselves- body, mind, and spirit.
Enlightening The Subconscious: This aspect of self-improvement usually requires an experienced professional who can help us reprogram the subconscious with positive, more objective beliefs and perceptions of ourselves, others, and the world. Reiki may be able to help with this work.
Unconditional Love: Showing this towards ourselves and others is the ultimate key to a high and harmonious energy flow. Some people describe the feeling of Reiki flowing through them as the feeling of unconditional love- it's a beautiful, light energy that's deeply connected to source and self.
So if you noticed almost all of these techniques can be amplified with Reiki, you're not alone. Reiki is a wonderful high-vibe healing tool! It can be used on others or on yourself.
