Reiki Healing - Introduction to Reiki - What to Expect During a Reiki Healing Session
Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki's ki-energies flow out of the practitioner's body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient's body. What to Expect During a Reiki Healing Session You will be asked to lay down on a massage table , couch, or bed. Relaxing Atmosphere Reiki practitioners will often create a relaxing atmosphere for their Reiki sessions, setting the mood with the use of dimmed lights, meditative music, or bubbling water fountains.

Reiki Traditions[edit] Today many branches of Reiki exist, though there exist two major traditions, respectively called Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki. Traditional Japanese Reiki[edit] The term Traditional Japanese Reiki is normally used to describe the specific system that formed from Usui's original teachings[41] and the teachings that did not leave Japan. Usui Reiki Ryōhō Gakkai (臼井靈氣療法學會 in Traditional Chinese Characters, meaning "Usui Reiki Healing Method Learning Society")[43] is the name of the society of Reiki masters founded by Mikao Usui. The Japanese Reiki hand positions presented in the Usui Reiki Ryōhō Hikkei (臼井靈氣療法必携, Usui Reiki Treatment Handbook) as used and compiled by Usui are considerably more extensive than the hand positions used in Western Reiki.[47] Western Reiki[edit] After being trained by Hayashi, Takata went back to Hawaii, taking Reiki with her.

What Is Reiki? The International Center for Reiki Training A Brief Overview Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. Learn More About Reiki - Reiki FAQs

Usui Reiki Master Online Training Course - Accredited, in-depth, home study course - 800-79-REIKI For many years I taught classes on the Reiki method of healing. Through the grace of God and through daily meditations, attempting to contact Him and attune to His will, this course has come to replace the Reiki methods, which I used to practice and teach. The methods are very similar in ways but there are some vital differences – one being that the client and practitioner tend to have more passive roles in Reiki healing, whereas with these methods, the very opposite is true – both parties are a vital part of the healing process. I have come to understand that it takes great energy and magnetism to be a true healer (one who helps support the healing process of others). And here he talks more about Vibratory Healing: "There are many kinds of healing, each of which can be used in healing physical, mental, or Spiritual diseases. This course will center on the techniques of Divine Will Healing, taught by Paramhansa Yogananda. Through this course, you will learn: The course includes:

Everything I know about Spray Paint! This post contains affiliate links {just keeping it real folks}. I get quite a few questions about spray paint, and I thought the most useful way for all of my readers would be to answer those questions publicly. So here it goes. Why do you use spray paint!?! I choose to use spray paint because I want my furniture to look like I bought it from a store instead of a refinishing project gone awry. Sidenote: If I had a super nice paint sprayer…I would definitely try using gallon paint, but brushing paint onto projects is long in my past. It is “thrifty-er” (is that even a word? What brands do you suggest? I love several brands of spray paint. I use Krylon at times too, sometimes the brand that I use is solely determined by the color that I’m looking for. Have I used other brands? But, you have to have a “play it by ear” attitude when dealing with other brands. What sheen of spray paint should I buy? This depends on what I’m spray painting. Do you always prime your projects? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Pantry Makeover I'm so excited to finally have one of the messiest spaces in our house... by FAR totally organized! The Pantry! Believe ME... we were thrilled to even HAVE a pantry in this house (being that the last 3 houses we had lived in didn't even have one) but overtime we had let it get really out of control. Case and So with a little creativity, and a LOT of help from IKEA and our local thrift stores, we finally got this space in tip-top, extraordinarily organized condition... and here's how we did it! I started at the bottom, priming away... realized how SMALL and cramped this space was, and gave up. ha. It took Cason finally pulling out EVERYTHING we had in there, to get my booty into gear, again. I found these 3ft pieces of trim at Joann's Fabric on clearance and thought they would be a subtle, great way to jazz up the shelf fronts a bit. After about 3 coats of primer, we used some wood glue and adhered the trim on the fronts of all the shelves. the shelves and molding semi-gloss white. eh. no.

do stuff! & Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag! - StumbleUpon Tutorial time! I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing, and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with! The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed! As you can see, even with a not huge tee, this will still leave a significant hole in the bottom of your bag, but for purposes like grocery shopping, this size hole shouldn’t really matter… But to make smaller holes, just make more than one of them! And now for the actual tutorial – for this one, with the step-by-step, I will be making the bottom with 3 holes. My finished Sonic bag!

DIY Vertical Herb Garden with a Shoe Organizer | greenUPGRADER - StumbleUpon by LiveOAK Staff on July 20, 2009 Confounded by vegetable digging cats and toiling in the vegetable patch, Instructables member pippa5 came up with this cool DIY vertical garden solution. In case you don't recognize it, she used an old closet shoe organizer. Meant to keep your shoes off the floor and save you some space, this new use saves some space by getting your veggies or herbs off the ground. It is similar to the reclaimed gutter vertical garden DIY we featured in April, but this one is even easier. Check out the DIY at Instructables About the Author: Apartment Gardening: Turn a Filing Cabinet Into a Planter - DIY Life - StumbleUpon Yes you can have a garden, even in an urban home. No yard is no excuse. "Apartment Gardening: Plants, Projects, and Recipes for Growing Food in Your Urban Home" is what every city-dweller with a green thumb needs. Author Amy Pennington explains how to make recycled planters from everything -- wine boxes to milk crates. Even if you're not living in an urban environment, you'll love the recipes and can easily use the project ideas for deck and indoor planting. Luckily, Pennington and the crew behind "Apartment Gardening" was kind enough to share a sneak peak of one of our favorite projects from the book. My friend Matthew Parker is one of those people who has vision. They don't cost much-in the neighborhood of fifty bucks-and while they are ugly to look at, if you remove the drawers and turn them onto their backs, they make an awesome planter. If you're into the whole shabby chic thing, drawers can be used for shallow planters, as well. Directions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

DIY Succulent Pallet Table | Far Out Flora Max with the new Succulent Table. Can you believe that our latest DIY project was once just a couple of junky pallets and some scrappy table legs? Crazy…if I didn’t have photos, I wouldn’t believe it myself. Not too long ago, we whipped out a coffee table sized succulent table out of an old shipping crate. The pallets. First bit of advice, deconstructing pallets are a big pain unless you have the right tools…and our hammer and wall scrapper wasn’t quite doing the trick. Couple good planks. Love the scares of time left on these chunks of pallet wood. Attaching the legs. After pulling apart two pallets, we used the 2 x 4 sized boards to make a rectangular frame to attached the appropriated table legs. Dry run for fittings. Like TV magic (and 2 days later), the table was more or less put together. Megan with some semps. After a weekend of slivers and sweat, we finally got to plant this baby. Getting messy. Packing them in. Yeah, we didn’t hold back on jamming them. Succulents playing together.

Small Footprint, Big Yield: Create an Easy Micro Organic Urban Garden Today! | Urban Gardens | Unlimited Thinking For Limited Spaces April 28, 2009 by Robin Plaskoff Horton There are two things urban gardeners are short on: space and time. The Urban Garden, brainchild of Bill Arquitt, resolves both of these issues, making it efficient and simple to plant a vegetable garden with up to 55 plants in a 3-foot deep by 4-foot wide footprint. The contained six level tiered system is nearly maintenance-free, eliminating heavy weeding, and its northwestern cedar construction renders it naturally bug repellent. Michael Zenner's Carnivorous Plants Welcome to my Carnivorous Plants Page! This page is in a fairly constant state of construction. As such, if you are interested in the subject, it would be a good idea to check back with some regularity. Photos are beginning to trickle in, take a look! There is something extremely fascinating about these natural oddities. I grow a number of genera of plants, including: I also have a cultivation guide which contains many of the basics for growing carnivorous plants. Also, if you are a collector as well, I'm willing to trade just about anything I have, as long as my personal stock is not exhausted. From time to time, I have plants available for sale. Here is a list of people with whom I have had positive trading experiences, and who I would recommend to others interested in trading over the net. One final, important note: All of my plants are propagated in captivity. Byblis (Rainbow Plant) Byblis differs from Drosera in being what is called a "passive flypaper" trap.
