Complete Description Of Reiki Healing

angelic-healing Angel healing is basically a type of energy healing that works well with the help of the divine angels. Angel therapy can be beneficial for anyone. It makes you feel a sense of release, followed by peace of mind, happiness and balance after the healing season. The positive energy channelized via the Angel Healer and it is thereby passed through the areas that are in need of healing in accordance to the demands and requirements of the clients. I personally believe that any disease or illness can be completed removed with the help of energy healing.

Is Angel Healing different from Reiki?

If you want to compare Angel Healing from other forms of energy healing, it is different in number of ways. There is no usage of symbols in the Angel Healing sessions and the energy is also channelized via much higher frequency when compared with Reiki. Moreover, clients find that with fewer sessions or an hour long healing session can be much more effective than other kinds of energy healing.

What can be expected out of an Angel Healing session?

A client can also feel the differences in respect to the sensations felt during the healing sessions as compared to Reiki. For instance, sensations include heat or coolness, tingling etc are more during the Angel healing sessions than the Reiki practice. Some of the other sensations are feelings of [eace, energy movement, seeing variable color and also feeling about the presence of the spirit guides or you might not feel anything during the session.

What is the feeling after the healing session?

It is said that after the healing sessions the clients feel more relaxed and refreshed and also experience that the burden has been lifted away. There are others who might also feel angry or over-emotional. This might arise from the healing process which is natural as the body releases the emotions which are otherwise suppressed inside.

How many sessions do I need?

There is no fixed numbers of sessions prescribed. There are some who just need one single healing session while there are others requiring many sessions. It basically depends on the situation one is going through. Depending on the situations, I recommend for the additional healing sessions and always ask my clients to listen to their bodies and decide what is right for them.

Do I need to follow any specific religion?

Angel Healing is in no way based on any specific religion and the clients also don’t need to follow any specific religion to participate on the healing sessions. Even if you don't have any trust in the angels, the healing process can show results. But believing in the concept of angels can be really helpful from the mental perspective.

How does it work?

Healing sessions cannot be forced upon to the clients. I make it a point to act as a channel and it is actually on the energy system of the clients’ bodies to accept the energy and allow the healing to take place. This is in fact executed on the sub-conscious level. It is beneficial in the healing process especially when the individual decides they he/she is open to the healing process at the conscious level. It has nothing to do with the will power but it is more of an emotional level.

Which are the angels that assist and what are their functions?

I have listed down the angels and the spiritual beings that assist. In fact, I have explained the traits as well for each angels and included their capabilities as well. In fact, similar to us, the functions of the angels are also constantly evolving and changing.

Stress is an excellent example when you can tell that illness manifests in the realm of feelings and thoughts. The mind may say that it is doing too much work and is under a lot of pressure. This intuits a feeling of burden on the person. Mind and emotions, both have to undergo a negative experience.

Chakra balancing meditation

You can choose one or more stones for each of these chakras. If you wish to balance all the chakras, then you need to work on them separately. You must lie down and then place each stone in the appropriate location. You may also hold a clear quartz point and then rotate it over each stone, beginning with the first chakra.

Inhale deeply and as you inhale imagine that the breath is coming through the soles of the feet and it is filling your body till the top of your head. While you exhale, imagine that it is travelling the same way back. After you have practised this for some time, you may want to see the colour that is associated with each chakra as the breath is travelling through all the parts of the body.

In case you are working on a single chakra, then you may want to create an affirmation which is related of it. Take an example : a fourth chakra confirmation can be like" I give and receive love unconditionally" you can repeat the confirmation to yourself and then you will visualise yourself flooded with the colour rose. You will imagine yourself in loving situations.

You must not over do the chakra balancing as it is just about simple relaxation and meditation. When you will practice more, you will find that you are more attuned to the subtle energies. You will become aware of the imbalances and you can cure them on your own.

seventh chakra

This chakra is our direct connection to the spirit. When this chakra is completely balanced, we get to know our relationship with the universe.

Chakra balancing meditation

You can choose one or more stones for each of these chakras. If you wish to balance all the chakras, then you need to work on them separately. You must lie down and then place each stone in the appropriate location. You may also hold a clear quartz point and then rotate it over each stone, beginning with the first chakra.

Inhale deeply and as you inhale imagine that the breath is coming through the soles of the feet and it is filling your body till the top of your head. While you exhale, imagine that it is travelling the same way back. After you have practised this for some time, you may want to see the colour that is associated with each chakra as the breath is travelling through all the parts of the body.

In case you are working on a single chakra, then you may want to create an affirmation which is related of it. Take an example : a fourth chakra confirmation can be like" I give and receive love unconditionally" you can repeat the confirmation to yourself and then you will visualise yourself flooded with the colour rose. You will imagine yourself in loving situations.

You must not over do the chakra balancing as it is just about simple relaxation and meditation. When you will practice more, you will find that you are more attuned to the subtle energies. You will become aware of the imbalances and you can cure them on your own.

Emotional Freedom Technique Eliminate your stress and negative emotion with "Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)". EFT is a powerful, drug-free, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use technique that can reduce stress or painful emotions associated with thoughts, past experiences, emotional challenges and also helps in increasing personal performance.

EFT is a form of psychological acupuncture that uses finger tapping on designated points on the face and body with saying out the specific problem followed by a general affirmation. EFT combines ancient Acupuncture with modern day psychology - and there is no need for needles !

EFT is indeed an amazing and effective self-help tool and it is possible to get extraordinary change with even the most basic knowledge, little or no understanding of the science behind it. However, there are times when EFT doesn’t seem to work, you just get nowhere. It is human nature not to 'go there' if 'there' is deemed too uncomfortable either consciously or unconsciously. This is where the practitioner comes in, when you are stuck. The Practitioner creates a safe space for the client to open-up by building rapport and trust and help them to clear their negative emotions and the pain associated with it.
