This past year has certainly been somewhat draining. Everything feels ‘topsy -turvy’ at the best of times, and there seems to be questions on how to move forward in many aspects of life. Not knowing plays havoc with the mind, body and spirits of many!
East vs. West in Healthcare
Healing of the mind, body and spirit is difficult using Western Medicine, causing people to search out alternative health practices.
Eastern philosophy teaches a connection of self with the energies of the universe and acceptance of what is. Many may actually have heard the term, ‘it is what it is.’
Reiki Masters have studied the ability to transfer universal energies through themselves to their client in order to better their health.
The Power of Crystals
Reiki crystals carry special energies that are said to interact with the patient’s unique energy field – known as the chakra. A practitioner works at restoring the balance of the 7 main chakras.
Many people that use Yoga for the betterment of their health have been taught the importance of keeping their chakras balanced and open. Yoga actually teaches poses to assist with this.
Unblocking your Chakras
Reiki masters start with your root chakra, at the base of your spine. Using Red Jasper and Black Tourmaline helps them to unblock the energy there. The root chakra provides you with a foundation for life, and it helps you feel grounded and able to withstand challenges. This is very important to your sense of security and stability.
Next, working on the Sacral Chakra the practitioner often uses Orange Carnelian and Red Fire Agate to clear this area. The Sacral Chakra is associated with reproductive systems and our creative and sensuality abilities.
Solar Plexus Chakra
Located in the upper belly at the diaphragm, it governs personality, ego, and identity. As well as personal freedom, choice, and authenticity. Often used with citrine to clear this chakra.
Moving upwards along the body, the next chakra is the integration point between the lower chakras and the higher chakras. This is the Heart Chakra. This very important chakra gives the ability of being able to open ourselves to deeper connections with others. The crystals most often associated with this chakra are Aventurine or Green Chalcedony.
The Throat Chakra is your communication center. Having this chakra opened is vital to creating and sustaining the powerful abilities of communication skills. Many practitioners use the Blue Lace Agate crystal here.
Third Eye Chakra
Now, unblocking the Third eye Chakra allows your ability to invite a new reality into your life through your hopes and dreams and the possibilities of change. Lapis Lazuli is most often used here.
Last, but considered very, very important is your Crown Chakra. This chakra rules your connection to your higher self. Amethyst and Rainbow Fluorite are most often in play here.
As a Reiki Master, Clair Marsland, has the ability to form a deep connection with her clients.
Starting before a client even arrives, the treatment room is cleansed with a smudging ceremony and any crystals to be used are cleansed with Selenite. This crystal dispels negative energy and enhances clarity, focus and calm.
Allow Yourself to Relax and Accept
Once a client arrives, Clair offers a foot massage to relax the client and allow them to begin the acceptance of Clair’s energy. Only then will the rest of the treatment continue.
Feeling like your body battery needs a recharge is a perfect time to reach out to Clair and book a Reiki Session.
Visit the shop, note the energy and feel the goodness that emanates from Clair herself.
You’ll have a better grounding for days to come.
