Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Using Reiki Natural Healing for PTSD and Mental-Emotional Issues like Depression, Suicidal Thoughts, & Anxiety

It is possible to use Reiki natural healing to help resolve mental and emotional damage after experiencing domestic abuse.  October is Domestic Violeviolence-against-women-1169348__480nce Awareness Month, and this is part of a series on using natural healing for recovery from abuse. 

If you currently suspect or know you are experiencing abuse, you can chat with an advisor here and learn how to develop a safety plan.  Leaving abuse brings freedom and requires courage and strength that often feels incredibly lacking due to the deleterious effects of physical abuse, emotional abuse, mental abuse, and spiritual abuse.

According to the U.S. Justice Department Office of Violence against Women:

Domestic violence is a serious violent crime that includes both physical and emotional abuse. It is frequently hidden from public view. Many victims suffer in silence, afraid to seek help or not knowing where to turn. The traumatic effects of domestic violence also extend beyond the abused person, impacting family members and communities. Children often witness the violence or become victims themselves. Stalking is a common and very dangerous tactic used by perpetrators of domestic violence, and can pose challenges for victims seeking help.

tears-4551435__480Domestic violence affects all people — men, women, transgendered, elderly, adult, or child — worldwide.  According to National Coalition against Domestic Violence statistics, “1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, post-traumatic stress disorder, use of victim services, contraction of sexually transmitted diseases, etc.“2

As a survivor of intimate partner violence and a Reiki master-teacher, I have used my healing power of touch to help resolve and release the terrible effects of being in an abusive relationship.  I can attest that healing from abuse is a tremendously challenging task.  Reiki offers several tools that I will cover in this series.

Mental-Emotional Healing

According to Healthline, victims of abuse may experience emotions such as: confusion, fear, hopelessness, and shame.  They may also have: difficulty concentrating, moodiness, muscle tension, nightmares, a racing heartache, and aches and pains.  Long-term effects include: anxiety, chronic pain, guilt, insomnia, and social withdrawal or loneliness.

Author Ann Pietrangelo notes that “some researchers theorize that emotional abuse may contribute to the development of conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.”  Other health issues can develop in individuals “abused or neglected as children,” including: eating disorders, headaches, heart disease, mental health issues, obesity, and substance use disorders, Pietrangle adds.

Furthermore, PTSD can develop and include symptoms such as: angry outbursts, being easily startled, insomnia, flashbacks, and upsetting thoughts.

Reiki adds a tool that can be used in combination with medical, psychological, or wellness-285590_1280psychiatric treatment.  Reiki does no harm and is the power of healing love.  Reiki is a gift, and receiving a Reiki attunement allows you to use your own hands to heal yourself.

Reiki is administered through gentle touch, and I’ve found this healing touch is especially helpful in recovering from abuse.  It feels therapeutic to receive nonsexual and safe touch.  It is very healing, especially when you are able to use your own hands and lovingly touch your own body.  It feels very empowering, which is important for survivors of domestic abuse.

Always check with your intuition and use discernment when working with a Reiki practitioner.  I have unfortunately heard many stories of individuals who were sexually harassed under the guise of a healing session, whether it be massage, spiritual healing, or something similar.  There are many extremely loving and powerful healers out there, but just as in any profession, there are some who are not quite so well-intentioned.  Abuse survivors will want to be especially cautious to find a practitioner they feel connected with and trust.

Mental-Emotional Body

In energy healing, it is key to treat the root cause of the illbeing.  This cause may be spiritual, emotional, mental, and/or physical.  Reiki flows to heal the root cause and helps restore balance to chi, our vital life force energy that causes illness when its flow is disrupted.

spiritualism-4552237_1280With Reiki, I can scan my own energy field or that of others and sense the byosen, or sick chi.  This palpable sensation indicates where toxins have accumulated, and different sensations indicate the severity of illbeing in that area.  It is possible to feel the byosen lessen and clear as I work on myself and others, so I use this to chakra-1079746_960_720understand where to treat an issue.

Sometimes I am amazed how far away from the body the root lies.  I have seen issues beginning several feet beyond a person.  Most individuals have several intense energy blocks around 4-6 inches above their body.  Interestingly, many people have clear backs and blocked fronts, or vice versa.  Practicing Reiki for about a decade, in addition to meditating daily, lets me sense very subtle sensations in and around me.

How to Use Reiki to Heal Mental-Emotional Distress

religion-3452582_1280You can receive a Reiki session from a Reiki practitioner or learn Reiki in a class with a Reiki master-teacher.  I always recommend getting an attunement so you can use the healing energy for yourself and others daily.

In Reiki I, you start a powerful self-healing process and are able to give yourself Reiki every day!  Reiki II includes a mental-emotional healing symbol that can be used especially on issues such as depression and anxiety.

I hope that this helps provide some resources that will benefit individuals healing from abusive relationships.  Remember you have the power of healing within your own hands.  It is your birthright, and you can begin to heal yourself using Reiki energy healing.  I recommend getting an attunement so you can treat yourself.  You are able to use Reiki in conjunction with any other practices.  Reiki is the power of healing love.

Nightshades and Arthritis Pain and Inflammation

Wondering if there is a link between nightshade vegetables and your arthritis pain? There might be.

 

Removing nightshade vegetables has significantly reduced my debilitating joint pain, arthritis inflammation, and stiffness.

At first, it seemed too complicated that I didn’t even try, even though I was on a strict elimination diet. 

Halloween, Poison, Label, Drink, Horror, Spooky, Bottle

I’d already had to stop eating gluten, and with it, all the yummy baked goods. 

That was difficult enough…  I’d often cry as I saw all the cakes and pastries I simply could not eat.  Why should I bother myself with tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, or paprika?

But now that I’ve seen the effects of avoiding nightshades myself, I know I’d rather stay away fromEggplant, Mark, Purple, Violet, Striped the nightshade family of plants if I can.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, “eggplants, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes are all members of the nightshade family. These vegetables contain the chemical solanine, which some people claim aggravates arthritis pain and inflammation.”

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2013 and have been treating it holistically and naturally with herbs, lifestyle, diet, and Reiki. Removing nightshades has been key to my healing.  See list of foods with nightshades here.

Due to my severe disability (could not walk due to ankle pain and stiffness, difficulty using arms, joint pain and stiffness, difficulty getting up and down off ground, pain throughout body), I tried Humira and Methotrexate for about a year.

I have stopped taking both Humira and Methotrexate and am grateful because I hated the side effects and the way these medicines made me feel.  I learned through muscle testing that these medicines weakened my body, so I stopped taking them.

I was able to use other information gleaned through muscle testing by a trained professional to determine that I had undiagnosed Lyme disease.  I was able to heal it using things like red wine and coconut oil — all natural and relatively inexpensive.  Suddenly I could walk again!

I was really starting to like how my body could tell me what it wanted and needed through the muscle testing.  Using muscle testing, I also learned that my body is extremely sensitive to nightshade vegetables.

Pepperoni, Paprika, Red, Chili, Sharp, Fruity HotGrowing up in Texas, enchiladas and salsa were my comfort foods.  The RA symptoms manifested most strongly when I moved to New Mexico.  The delicious green and red chile sauces became a near-daily part of my breakfast, along with potatoes.  Now I wonder if this precipitated many of my symptoms, like arthritis pain and inflammation, since I know I am sensitive to them.

It’s such a bummer to avoid tomatoes, peppers, Tomato, Fruit, Red, Edible, Berry, Nightshadeeggplants, potatoes, eggplant and especially paprika (it’s in everything!), but it is well worth doing for me since it so greatly improves my mobility and reduces my joint pain and arthritis inflammation.

After learning my sensitivity to these nightshade plants by using muscle testing, I stopped eating them entirely, then tried reintroducing them.  OUCH!  All of a sudden I could not use my arms without pain for 12-48 hours.  Eating nightshades directly amplified my arthritis pain and inflammation to excruciating levels.

I’d already cut gluten out after sending off a stool test to test for sensitivity, and was glad I did.  Eating a bunch of wheat cookies made it so that my ankles stiffened and I could not continue walking within 15 minutes.

But the nightshades actually felt worse!!  I couldn’t believe it.  I’d tried cutting out everything on a strict elimination diet.  At one point, all I ate was kale, beef, and sweet potato.  I lost lots of weight even though I was bedridden — definitely not working out — and I figured it was because I wasn’t eating baked goods.  I was anemic, so I ate up to a pound of grass-fed beef a day.

Gradually, I reintroduced foods.  But I never took nightshades seriously — until I cut them out!  They were responsible for so much of my pain, it was unbelievable!

Turns out, nightshades have been used to kill and assassinate kings and rulers in history.  According to “Botany Gone Bad: The History of the Deadly Nightshade Plant” by Zack Sterkenberg:

“The compounds that make Deadly Nightshade so lethal are called Atropine and Scopolamine. These toxic ingredients are so powerful that a minuscule amount slipped into a drink or added to a meal can send full grown adults into paralysis, cause severe hallucinations, delirium, confusion, convulsions, and death.”

Sterkenberg adds:

“The Roman military created a deadly paste from the plant that was used to make poison-tipped arrows for archers, a practice that was in use for centuries.

Not even Kings were spared of the terror, as Macbeth, King of Scotland, Emperor Augustus of Rome, and Emperor Claudius of Rome were all laid to rest at the hand of the Deadly Nightshade.”

Nightshades have only been a part of a European diet since the 1600s, according to “Nightshades: Your Favorite Foods are Plotting to Kill You” by Fundamental Health Solutions.

Because of this, the author notes:

Europeans have only had a few hundred years to adapt nightshades into their diet, so they are at the greatest risk of having a toxic sensitivity to them. Native Americans and South Americans have been exposed to them for thousands of years and have built up a capacity for them. And that’s what we tend to see in my office.

Craig Sams breaks down more aspects of the history of nightshades, as well as the effects of solanine, “a strong acetylcholinesterase inhibitor,” here.

Now I know it’s worth considering whether your arthritis pain and inflammation are related to nightshade vegetables.

Many people are wondering, are nightshades bad for joint pain?  In my experience, yes.  But the only way to know for sure is to cut them out of your diet and then reintroduce them.

Ethan Boldt recommends eliminating nightshades for at least three months when assessing sensitivity.  His article, “What Are Nightshade Vegetables? How to Tell If You Are Sensitive to Them?” includes a full list of foods and more information about how nightshades may impact joint pain and arthritis inflammation.

How to Manifest Money Easily and Quickly

ganesha-2496371_960_720The goddess Lakshmi is a Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity.  She is shown above next to Ganesha, the remover of obstacles.

Any time I have concerns about money, I try this process to manifest money easily and quickly:

  1. Stop any worry, fear-based, or lack thoughts about money, prosperity, or abundance as soon as I notice myself having them.
  2. Do a Lakshmi mantra instead.  I simply chant out loud or think, Om hrim maha lakshmiye namaha.  For those who are unfamiliar with mantra, there are plenty you can listen to on YouTube.  You can find a version you like.  I like this one: https://youtu.be/iPlpm2ip-Ys  Simply play it in the background to help generate more wealth and abundance of all sorts in your life!

So, I know this sounds a bit crazy.  I honestly don’t know why or how it works.  After my spiritual awakening, I have had many inexplicable manifestation experiences by doing simple practices like this.  I think it is like a prayer, and what Lakshmi brings are true money miracles–and even more!  She teaches abundance is more than just money!

Still, finding money from Lakshmi after I did a mantra (prayer) has renewed my faith in a higher power more than any church sermon I’ve ever heard!

diya-2764867_960_720

Success Stories:

  • I was worrying about running out of gas money.  I imagined I’d need $5.  Instead of worrying, I did a Lakshmi mantra.  When I arrived at my destination, I saw $5 waiting for me in the parking lot.
  • I had to park far away and was feeling upset…  Until I found $100 bill on my path.  Thank you, Lakshmi!
  • I had two bills to pay and couldn’t afford them both.  Instead of worrying or taking action, I prayed to Lakshmi with a mantra.  That night, I found $200, the exact amount I needed, when it fell at my feet as I was walking around downtown.
  • I needed additional income and prayed for a miracle.  That day my friend texted me about an amazing job, and I got it!  It is better than anything I could have imagined, and the opportunity came right to me, without me wasting time applying to unsuitable positions.  Thank you again, Lakshmi!

I’ve heard of saints who can manifest money from thin air, as it is immaterial energy and they are spiritual masters who can perform what many would perceive as impossible miracles.

Heck, I’ve experienced miracles myself thanks to Reiki — women becoming pregnant after many failed attempts, my own ability to walk again after disability, headaches removed with five minutes of treatment, and chronic illnesses vanish as issues are addressed holistically and over time….

Why worry?  The universe truly loves us and prospers us, and Goddess Lakshmi is the embodiment of that love.

What Is A Reiki Share?

Reiki Basics Series: How To Do Reiki

wellness-285590_1280Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch received her Reiki I attunement from Pamela Mauras of Ascension Healing in 2009 and from Karen Harrison, a senior licensed teacher with the International Center of Reiki Tradallas reiki master-teacherining, in 2013.

In this Reiki Basics Series, the Dallas Reiki Master shares Reiki techniques and answers Reiki questions to help new Reiki practitioners understand how to do Reiki.  She has seen countless Reiki benefits in her years of experience as a Reiki Master-Teacher in Dallas, TX.


What Is A Reiki Share?

Many people who are new to Reiki natural healing share a common question: What is a Reiki Share?   Do you need a Reiki certification to attend?  Although each Reiki Master will run their Reiki Share with their own unique style, typically a Reiki Share is an opportunity for Reiki practitioners from any lineage or experience level to get together and give and receive Reiki.   Usually at least Reiki I certification is required, and everyone who attends both gives and receives Reiki at the event.

At Peaceful Presents DFW Reiki Share, Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch emphasizes using intuitive guidance to help locate the appropriate Reiki hand positions.  She provides instruction on how to do Reiki and encourages event attendees to practice accessing spiritual messages during the Reiki treatments.

What Is A Reiki Share?

A Reiki Share is an opportunity for Reiki practitioners to give and receive Reiki.

reikishareEach Reiki practitioner gets a chance to practice Japanese Reiki techniques like Byosen scanning and to access and share any spiritual messages that come through in the short practice Reiki session.

In addition, every attendee receives Reiki from multiple people at once.  It is amazing what a boost even a short (10- to 20-minute) Reiki session can give! A Reiki Share is a great chance to meet new Reiki friends and practice Reiki with a live Reiki Master.

Children who have their Reiki I certification are welcome to attend Peaceful Presents Reiki Share Meetup.  Upcoming shares will be posted on the Meetup page, as well as on this blog in the side column.  Reiki Shares meet monthly at Dallas Meditation Center.

What to Expect at a Reiki Share:

  • Directed by a Reiki Master-Teacher
  • A chance to meet new Reiki friends
  • You will practice giving short Reiki treatments
  • You will receive a short Reiki treatment from multiple people
  • An opportunity to practice accessing intuitive healing messages for others

What to Bring to a Reiki Share:certificate

  • You don’t have to actually bring your certificate, but be sure you have received a Reiki attunement and have at least Reiki I certification if you attend the share
  • Dress comfortably and bring plenty of water to drink
  • You  might want a journal so you can take notes on any messages you receive
  • Some people like to bring healing crystals, cards, or other tools to charge with Reiki or explore using during the treatments
  • Be prepared to silence your phone and be free from distraction for the entire share
  • It’s OK to bring kids to the share if they have their Reiki attunement or if they are able to independently entertain themselves without causing disruption.
  • Please do not bring adults who have not received their Reiki attunement and who would not be able to participate in giving Reiki at the Reiki Share.

What to Expect after a Reiki Share:

  • Your body will integrate the healing energy you received.  Some people will notice only positive effects, such as an increased sense of calm and wellbeing or decreased pain levels.  Others have mild detox symptoms as their bodies adjust to the new energy.   This can include feeling sleepy or feeling light-headed.
  • Be sure to drink plenty of water and rest as needed both before and after the Share.  Stay grounded and know any adjustment period will pass.  Be aware to avoid ingesting toxins or otherwise increasing your body’s toxic load.  Epsom salt baths or saunas can also help your body process the Reiki energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need to have my Reiki certification or be attuned to Reiki to attend?
    • Yes.  Each person will practice giving Reiki at the Reiki Share.  A Reiki attunement from a living master activates your Reiki energy so that you are able to channel this healing energy for yourself and others.
    • If you are not sure if you are attuned to Reiki, please use our contact form to discuss your training and experience with Dallas Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch.
    • While Peaceful Presents values, honors, and supports all healing modalities, we will practice Japanese Reiki techniques and use Reiki only during the Reiki Share.  For this reason, please do not come if you practice a healing modality other than Reiki unless you have your Reiki attunement and can give Reiki.
  2. Do I have to stay the whole time?  Can I come late or leave early?
    • Because we will split time between everyone who attends, it’s always optimal if you can stay for the entire share.  Still, it is possible to come late or leave early.  You will be charged the same rate as those who stay the full time ($20).
    • If you need to come late or leave early, be sure to contact Dallas Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch in advance so that she can coordinate the Reiki treatments so that everyone is able to both give and receive Reiki at the share.
  3. Are kids allowed?
    • It’s OK to bring kids to the share if they have their Reiki attunement or if they are able to independently entertain themselves without causing disruption.
  4. Can I bring my friend who wants to receive Reiki but isn’t certified or attuned?
    • No.  Please do not bring adults who are unable to participate in giving Reiki to the Reiki Share.  This is not fair to the participants who take time to give Reiki to others in addition to receiving Reiki when it is their turn.  In addition, healing messages can be sensitive, so we would like to keep the amount of observers down and only have participants at the Reiki Shares.
    • Adults who are not attuned to Reiki can receive Reiki by donation from Reiki Fellowship Dallas  or book a session with a Reiki practitioner.
  5. I don’t see my question listed.  How can I contact the Reiki Master?
    • Please use our Contact Form to receive an e-mail response.

Channeled Message from Archangel Uriel

Spiritual Messages Series

In this series, Holy Fire Usui Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch is channeling spirit guides to receive spirit guide messages.  Jessica learned she was psychic after she received her Reiki attunement.  She teaches you to access your intuition in Connect with Your Guides, a Channeling How-To Series.  She also offers a monthly Channeling Circle where you can practice receiving spiritual messages and messages from your angels and guides.


Believe In Yourself & Follow Your Heart: A Channeled Message from Archangel Uriel

I must tell you all that your biggest weaknesses and obstacles arise from within your own limited consciousness.  As humans, you must walk archangelthe path of continually clearing limiting beliefs so that your true spiritual nature and gifts can shine through.

This is what Jesus meant in Matthew 18:3.  According to the Aramaic Bible in Plain English, this passage reads: “And he said, ‘Truly I say to you, unless you will be converted and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.'”

soulBy this, Jesus means to return to the natural innocence, awe, and openness that children carry.  As children, we believe anything is possible and are willing to surrender to the flow of life and live fully in the present moment.

As we grow older, we become socialized to downplay our intuitive awareness and unique sensitivities, and many of us begin to deny our spiritual nature and unique purpose in order to fit in or succeed at life.

But I say to you that there truly is no limit to what is possible when you follow your heart and align with divine inspiration for your life.   It is possible to become again like a child and live fully open and aware of your gifts and purpose on the planet.
soulsound
Listen within, dear ones, and hear the sweet sound of your soul.  At times the voice is still and quiet; you will know it by its calm certainty.  It is the part of you that exhibits strength no matter what, where you can come and nurture yourself when life seems tough and the road rocky.

And of course, do not hesitate to ask us, your spirit guides, for our assistance.  We will never interfere without your permission, and we love you all so, so much!

– Message from Archangel Uriel, angel of wisdom, as channeled by Reiki Master-Teacher and Clairvoyant Psychic Medium Jessica Hitch

How to Talk to Dead Loved Ones

medium-1726601_960_720You can easily talk to your dead loved ones using simple techniques that help you to establish and sense a heartfelt connection with deceased ancestors or friends.  While many of my clients have fears or skepticism about their ability to receive messages from dead loved ones, it is actually easy and natural to communicate with our ancestors even when they are no longer on earth.  Anyone can do it.  You do not need special abilities or training.

autumn-21498_960_720It is especially easy to communicate with dead loved ones during the time around Halloween.  This is a magickal time when the veil between the worlds is thin, so it is easy to send and receive telepathic messages to people who are not in physical form.  We use our psychic and intuitive abilities to receive and transmit messages to individuals who are in spirit.  We can also talk out loud to them, send them our thoughts, or write messages on paper.

This Sounds Crazy…  I Can Talk to the Dead?

I know it sounds crazy, but anyone can talk to the dead.  Humans have been doing it since the beginning of time.  Our modern culture tries to deny or even villify our natural intuitive, psychic, and spiritual abilities, but they are still available to us to access.  It just takes openness and a certain amount of practice.

Meditation can help you to still your mind so that you are open to receive communication from spirit.  It can also help you be more sensitive to subtle ways dead loved ones communicate.  My practice of mindful sitting and mindful walking has helped me to open up more of my intuitive gifts.

How is it possible we can talk to our dead loved ones?  Even though every form on earth changes over time, nothing ever truly vanishes.  When something dies, it does not cease to exist, but rather changes form.  The earth cycles continuously through processes that we perceive as birth/creation, growth, death, and decay/transformation.

woodland-669737_960_720Birth and death are two ends of a tunnel into other dimensions.  When we are born, we make passage through this tunnel into physical life on earth.  When we die, we make passage through this tunnel into spiritual life of oneness, and we are still connected to earth through a shared spiritual reality.

When a loved one dies, their spirit leaves the physical form, and their body decomposes and becomes soil.  That soil nourishes plant life, which creates oxygen and nurtures an ecosystem.  This helps humans to breathe and live in contentment on the planet.  In this way, our ancestors are alive in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we walk on.  In this way, every human that ever was and ever will be is linked as one human be-ing expressing in different forms throughout time.

Communicating with Dead Loved Ones

As a Reiki master teacher and clairvoyant psychic medium, I did not seek out my ability to connect with the dead.  Rather, I began to see mental images of my dead loved ones while I was doing Reiki energy healing sessions with clients.  I realized the images indicated which of my client’s relatives were present.  If I “saw” my maternal grandmother, it meant their maternal grandmother was there.

These spirits began asking me to pass on messages to my clients.  I soon discovered the messages were accurate and deeply healing.  Many times, I have seen headaches vanish once I delivered a message from a dead loved one that set my client at ease.  The headache was simply the dead family member trying to get their loved one’s attention.

Now I know it is extremely simple to connect with our dead loved ones.  Heck, we could connect with our dead hated ones, too, if we wanted!  After death, a soul’s spirit is still alive and well, though their form has changed.

petals

Have you ever received a message from a dead loved one?  If you think you have, you are probably right.  Don’t discount your thoughts and perceptions, no matter how odd or crazy your experience might have felt.  Our dead loved ones really do work hard to get our attention.  I have heard of various forms of spirit communication, including:

  • Objects moving in the home
  • A sense of a spiritual presence nearby
  • Hearing a meaningful song
  • Smelling a scent associated with the dead loved one
  • Speaking through natural sounds, like cicadas or thunder
  • Feathers and coins left on your path
  • Birds and other animals acting as messengers
  • Seeing a spiritual form or clairvoyant mental image of the dead loved one
  • Dead loved one appearing in dreams
  • Sending messages through other living people

Communicating with the Dead through Dreams

Most of my clients receive spirit communications during dredigital-art-399834_960_720amtime or when they are falling asleep or waking up.  This is because our mind is free from any blocks we may hold to our psychic abilities and very open to spiritual energies when we are dreaming or entering/exiting the sleep state.  We can suspend our logical, rational mind and allow our intuitive, feeling mind to take over for a while.  This lets us open to new ways of sensing and perceiving the world.

The message can be big or small.  Sometimes our dead loved ones just want to get our attention so we will try to talk to them.  If you seek them out and invite the communication, it will get stronger.

How Can You Talk to Your Dead Loved Ones?

You do not always need to be formal about communicating with your dead loved ones, but when you are just beginning, it can help to set up a special space to connect.  Find a private place in your home where you can light a candle and place a photo of anyone you would like to chat with.  You can also write their name or simply hold the intention that any ancestor who loves you step forward.

To begin, use these steps:

  1. Intention Is Key – Set the Intention to Connect
    1. Be specific: “I would like to connect with Aunt Madrid” or “I would like to connect with my deceased son” or “I am open to any messages from dead loved ones now.”
    2. Ask that only loving souls that want the best for you be allowed into your space.
  2. Set Sacred Space – Light a Candle, Burn Incense, Play Music
    1. This can set the tone and help you to be receptive to spirit messages
    2. You can also do a brief energy shielding visualization or burn sage to purify the space and keep it high vibration
  3. Open Your Heart and Mind – Sit for a Moment in Meditation
    1. Focus on your breath and see what arises within
    2. If thoughts arise, return to your breath and focus within
  4. Trust What Comes and Your Impressions – You May Feel, See, Sense, or Know Your Loved One is There
    1. The first sensation is the spiritual message; the mind chatter telling you that you are “making it up” or “crazy” is your ego.  See #1 Challenge Blocking Your Psychic Powers: How to Trust Your Intuition.
    2. Be open that the communication may be different than you expect; try to receive what comes with an open mind

Channeled Archangel Michael Message: Celebrate Life Daily

Spiritual Messages Series

angelIn this series, Holy Fire Usui Reiki Master-Teacher Jessica Hitch is channeling spirit guides to receive spirit guide messages.  Jessica learned she was psychic after she received her Reiki attunement.  She teaches you to access your intuition in Connect with Your Guides, a Channeling How-To Series.  She also offers a monthly Channeling Circle where you can practice receiving spiritual messages and messages from your angels and guides.


Channeling Archangel Michael

I am here to acknowledge the good works each of you do each day, and to encourage you to focus on your beneficial contributions as well.

Too many of you feel that you must attain perfection to “be spiritual” or to “evolve.”  But messages from archangel michaeltruly, a state of acceptance is all that life requires.

Your life’s journey is a bit like a river flowing from a mountain peak to the ocean.  You are well equipped with an internal, instinctual guidance system that tells you how to move forward and reach the ocean again.  When you listen and follow your intuition, you are flowing easily with the river of your life and will naturally return to your source and nourish many others as you follow your natural course.

When you resist by entertaining doubt or skepticism, you hang on to the river bank.  The currents continue to flow.  You may find yourself feeling out of sorts, nervous, or afraid, but your instinct will tell you to let go and surrender to the powerful loving force that guides you through life.

An excellent way to do this is to connect to your Higher Self, or soul aspect.  In this way, you will feel your truth and be able to perceive what to expect as you move forward with your divine mission.  Your Higher Self sees the entire route your river will run through your life on earth, and can help you prepare for rough rapids or gentle flow.

Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis Naturally with Reiki Energy Healing

 

Healing Rheumatoid Arthritis Naturally

How do you treat rheumatoid arthritis naturally with Reiki energy healing?  Reiki can reduce pain and treat the root cause of whatever imbalance has caused your rheumatoid arthritis.  I have experienced great pain relief and improved ability thanks to using Reiki as a rheumatoid arthritis natural treatment.1268312_10202901137112760_1495725038_o

Unfortunately, I’m speaking about this from experience.   In 2012, I was debilitated by rheumatoid arthritis as well as Lyme disease. I still do have joint pain and deformities, but I have found with Reiki I have been able to reduce my pain and recover a lot of abilities––literally.

I used to be in a wheelchair, bedridden, in pain from head to toe. I needed people to help bring water to my face, and now I can walk around. I can do my daily activities.

I may still experience flares here and there, but I have found that I have been able to live with rheumatoid arthritis using just Reiki and herbs and lifestyle choices. And in fact, I’m feeling better than ever, and it feels like I will continue to improve.

What Is Reiki?

So,  you might be wondering what is Reiki?  It is a form of Eastern medicine, and it works on imbalances in our qi, or vital life force energy, that we are all born with.  When you experience mental, phya5657e93de9e3334beee010df2c21951sical, emotional, or spiritual disruption, the root cause is always in the energy. Reiki is a form of energy medicine that flows through me as a practitioner into the client, and it is used to balance their energy so that later, health can come.

I’ve gotten really sensitive by practicing Reiki. I can actually scan someone and feel where there is discord in their energy field. It feels like tingling in my hands. I can feel that after I am done with the Reiki treatment, the energy feels better.

At one point, I was walking with a cane into my Reiki class and in a lot of pain, and when they scanned,  they said, “You feel really healthy energetically.” I thought I didn’t feel healthy at all, but within 2 weeks, my physical well-being had improved. They had sensed the improvement in my energy before it took physical form.  So, Reiki works on the energy first, and everything else follows.

I know a lot of time getting a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis feels hopeless. I’ve been told many times to get back in a wheelchair, not to walk, not to go hiking, that I can expect to get worse, that what I’m doing will not help me, that I need to be on methotrexate––which I muscle tested, and my body indicated that medicine weakened it, plus I hated the side effects. So I’ve been following my body and letting the energy heal me deeply.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain Relief

Reiki is something that flows out of your hands, that you can actually give yourself. I have found when I get a joint pain, I invite the Reiki to flow, and I just put my hands on yoga-422761_960_720the place where the pain is, and very quickly a lovely soothing energy starts to flow.  Honestly, I’ve been doing Reiki on myself and others for about 10 years, but it still amazes me that often my physical pain goes away after just a few moments of giving myself healing.

So for anyone who lives with chronic pain, Reiki is such a powerful thing to have.  It gives you the ability to access pain relief from your own hands at any time. So I recommend if you have rheumatoid arthritis that you try a Reiki session, and if you like the way you feel and you like the experience, consider taking a Reiki class and getting attuned.

When you are attuned, you can channel the healing for yourself every day, whenever or wherever you are.  And it doesn’t have to be joint pain. If you have cramps or a headache or any number of ailments, the Reiki can bring relief. It is very easy to put your hands on yourself and invite this powerful energy to flow through you. It is really amazing.

I have 0f6a79e2a264e738c69743936ad3f592seen headaches vanish and joint pains vanish after minutes of Reiki. It gets to the root cause, and so the more you do it, the more layers heal themselves that are actually part of the causes contributing to your disease, which is a misalignment to begin with.

So by practicing on myself, in the beginning, I couldn’t even move my hands to different parts of my body, so I put my hands on my heart and let Reiki go wherever it was needed. I let it flow, and I was able to perceive and learn that my emotions––some of them had been trapped from old traumas, and those have played a role with RA.

So I’ve learned when I have joint pains to check in and see what emotion is there. I’ve learned a lot about my mentality supporting the disease and I can see how lifestyle also causes flares and things like that.

I’ve also seen how spiritual factors come into play. Sometimes I’ve gotten flares or increased pain when I’m around people whose energy was incompatible with mine. I am very empathic and sensitive, so I have learned  to shield myself and take care of myself energetically to really thrive.

Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis with Reiki

Of course, the Reiki has helped me feel better physically as well, and like I mentioned, now, I am walking and I haven’t needed a wheelchair in a while, other than one flare where I had to use a cart from Walmart. So it’s been amazing.bless-you-1136219_1280

I know for me as a rheumatoid arthritis patient, it is very upsetting because it feels like doctors hardly look at me. Most of them don’t care about my emotions or my diet, even though I have seen in myself by testing over and over different foods that some things definitely trigger me and some things seem to be fine.

So it has been a little bit confusing, and at times it is extremely disheartening because these professionals are people who are trusted and respected and given a lot of power, but I have been guided by prayer to pursue natural treatments, and I am really getting into my own body. I’m very interested in healing the true root cause, and I am so lucky to have received my Reiki attunement so that I can give Reiki healing energy to myself.

Also consider that if you get an attunement, it gives you another form of income, because even if you are in pain and even if you’re suffering greatly,  you can still help others. So a lot of times with rheumatoid arthritis it might be hard to have a steady job. You need breaks and you need to relax, so consider that getting Reiki training could actually give you a new career you might not have considered, and you will be able to adapt to meet your new needs and your new body that functions a little different from the way most people’s do.

wellness-955796_1280Those are just some thoughts on Reiki and rheumatoid arthritis. I hope anyone out there as suffering from RA finds relief and is able to heal, because I know it is extremely debilitating.

Please remember there is hope out there. Your body knows how to heal. The very wise inner healer within you will talk to you if you just ask. You do not need to accept the doom and gloom others tell you. Have faith. Do your research, follow your heart, and trust your own instincts and you will find your way to healing.
