Heal the Mind, Heal the Body

The Body responds on the Mind’s thoughts and energy. You feed the Mind also with words and feelings. So make sure you feed your Mind with healthy thoughts and words.

You most likely have read about “what you send out you receive back”. And this goes of course in either way, good or bad. It’s not always easy to keep a positive mindset or stay away from stress and worries, as we can be challenged every day all over again.

Though it is possible to help heal your body with the right mindset, the right thoughts and the right feelings. Are you aware that everything that appears in your physical body was in your energy body first?

When negativity, like stress, worries, anxiety and negative thoughts create a negative energy field around us, but is not cleared in time, it will affect our physical body. And this can come in all kinds of physical ailments. Small issues or sometimes bigger issues when the negative energies stay for too long within us.

Basically, when we feel not well because of stress and worries, it’s actually our body who tries to tell us, warn us, there is something not right, and we have the opportunity to change our energy around it. But how can you do that?

You can calm and ease your mind with Meditation, Yoga, connect with Nature, just being still for a moment to clear your mind, but if after that you continue living with stress, worries or negative thoughts, you quickly build up the same energy vibes again. And so you keep going in a vicious cycle.

Then there is another aspect that affects your Mind, and therefor also your body, and that is the words you speak, how you pronounce your sentences. As all words you speak out, are first formed in your Mind, it’s the connection with the brain.

So it’s very important to become aware How you say things. Try to think for yourself if you recognize anything in your speaking what can be changed to a more positive way of saying it. For example, if you say “I am never ill”, then the “focus” of that sentence is on “ill”. Instead you can better say “I am always healthy”, then your put the focus on “healthy”.

It seems like small differences in how you say things, but it makes a huge difference in your Energy. As again, we know “what you send out comes back to you”.

A good way to practice saying things in a more positive way is using Affirmations, as affirmations are all focused on creating the Good and the Positive. Try it out for yourself, pay attention on how you say things, and every time you notice that you said something in the “wrong” way, then repeat what you just said, for yourself, in the “right” way, using the right, positive words.

After a while you will really start to notice the difference and how life is starting to transform for you. We are Energy and we can feed ourselves with Positive Energy or Negative Energy. The more we feed ourselves with Positive Energy, the more you heal your Body with it.

Choose your Self to Heal your Self

Most likely we all experienced this to a certain extent, living towards other’s expectations.

But does living towards other’s expectations or satisfying others makes You happy? No, it doesn’t.

It doesn’t make you happy, as you can’t live your True Self when you always try to satisfy others.

Actually it gives you inner stress and frustration, even though you might sometimes think it doesn’t. As you might not always be aware of it. It only comes to the surface now and then, when you try to think or analize why you feel this way.

The only way to Heal your Self is to choose for your Self, to choose for You, and what You want, and How you want things in your life.

Otherwise basically other people are controlling Your life. And you don’t have to allow that, you Should not allow that.

People Pleasing will never give You any satisfaction or the True Happiness you want in life. People Pleasing is exhausting! It exhausts your Soul as you give, and give and give. Your Soul gets drained, and then you start to feel it in your Physical as well.

If you recognise this, then start to choose for You. As you know perfectly well what is right for you, and what You want. You don’t need other people to tell you that.

Start to Heal your Self, choose for You and make You priority in Your life!

Valentine Self Love

Valentine’s Day is a day where we show our Love for our partner, husband, wife or even a family member or a good friend.

But what about your Self?

Self Love is one of the most important form of Love. As you can only truly share Love, in a genuine and Unconditional way, when you are able to Love your Self.

Self Love

You can’t share or give what you don’t have. So that works the same with Love. And you deserve to be loved by You!

Self Love comes together with acceptance. Acceptance for Who you truly are, how you look, how you do things, what you do and what doesn’t belong to you or suits you.

Self Love is not always easy as there is a lot of pressure from society, about how you should look, how you should do things, how successful you need to be, what you should have in material things….

It can be a hard way to walk away from all these expectations, but it’s not impossible. When you are able to truly accept You for being You, it’s actually very Healing. It gives a feeling of freedom as you don’t “have” to live anymore according other’s expectations, but just be You, your Natural You, your True Self.

So for Valentine’s Day, especially when you are single or don’t have a special loved one around you, do something for You.

Get yourself a bunch of Flowers or some Chocolate, go out for a nice meal or get something nice to eat at home, take a nice bath with some candles, go out and watch a movie or pick a nice one at home…..

Do something what you like, what you Love, what makes you feel good!

As Valentine’s Day is all about Love, extra attention for Love, so don’t forget your Self.

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️

Reiki Healing in different ways

Reiki is a bridge between the ancient traditions of healing and the modern day scientific model.

During a Reiki session, the practitioner places their hands on or just above a client’s body and conducts universal energy from their arms, and out through their hands where it flows into the clients’ body.

Every cell in our body and every atom in the Universe is in a constant state of Vibration. The tendency for two objects (in this case the practitioner and the client) is to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. In most cases, the weaker of the two oscillating objects will have a tendency to adjust to the stronger vibration, which is Reiki Energy.

What sets Reiki apart from other forms of Touch Therapy?

The attunements that the Practitioner receives from a Reiki Master. These attunements open the channels in an individual, so they are in direct contact with Universal Life Force. After an attunement, these channels are open forever. Reiki helps the Practitioner make the Connection. Like turning on a lamp, all the Practitioner needs to do to activate the Energy is to place their hands on themselves or others, or visualize doing so (in case of long distance healing)

How does the body use Reiki Energy?

When a body receives Reiki Energy, it is like a light to make the body aware of the energy that is not serving it. The Practitioner does not decide what needs to be released or when, the wisdom of the body does. The Practitioner holds the space for the bodymind to see the possibilities it can choose from with regard to healing so the body is no longer tied to a dysfunctional way of being. Once the body has chosen what it is ready to address, it can systematically release the stored energy at a cellular level connected with the imbalance. The cells then begin functioning as intended and the healing occurs on a physical as well as emotional, mental and physical level. With the body vibrating at a more natural state, harmony and peace on all levels can be restored. Reiki goes to the place in the body that is imbalanced and requires Healing.

What are Chakras and what effect has Reiki Healing on them?

Chakra means “spinning wheel of energy” or “energy centre” in Sanskrit. Each of these centres is associated with specific organs, endocrines, issues, emotions, colors and elements. Balancing these centres can have a Physical, Emotional and Spiritual effect on an individual. In a Reiki session you will not only be balancing Physical aspects in the client’s body but also their Energetic centers. By balancing these centers, the Physical body will also be addressed as every Chakra is connected to certain organs and body parts. So if a certain Chakra is blocked or doesn’t “spin” well this can have effect on your physical body and you can experience physical issues.

Reactions that may occur during the session:

Some people do not experience anything eventful during the session, that is because the body decides what to balance and when, shifts can occur on a subtle level but over time can have profound results. Reactions that may occur are Emotional response, Feeling heat or cold, Seeing colours or lights, Involuntary movements like twitching, Stomach rumbling or Falling asleep. 

Reiki and Pregnancy, Babies and Children:

Reiki is safe and can be very beneficial for a pregnant woman and her child.

Reiki can be used to help:

  • Reduce fatique
  • Stimulate healthy development
  • Address pain
  • Facilitate a connection between mother and child
  • Reduce post-partum depression
  • Accelerate healing after delivery
  • Milk production or formula absorbtion
  • Balance colic

Reiki can also help prepare for conception by reducing stress and stimulate the reproductive cycles of the couple. Important though is to always consult your doctor, no matter what if you are concerned about you or your baby.

Reiki can be performed on children from the time they are born. Most children are very sensitive to energy and love the sensation! With each session, children become more familiar with the energy and may even be able to tell you when they feel things shifting. Reiki is also a wonderful way to connect with children who are non-verbal.

Reiki and Palliative Care:

Reiki can help assist those who are dying and preparing to leave this physical plane and can help the recipient have a peaceful transition. Reiki can also be used to help those grieving the loss of loved ones. Reiki can help ensure that the grieving process is flowing and that emotions are being processed and released rather than resisted and stored.

Reiki on a distance:

To receive Reiki Healing on a distance is just as effective as receiving Reiki Healing through hands-on. With Reiki it’s all about the intention where you want the Energy to go to and to whom. Often there will be used a photo and full name of the recipient. The Practitioner can use the Reiki Symbols to make the Reiki sessions more powerful. Reiki on a distance is perfect for long distances or if a client is not able to attend the Reiki session in person.

New Year, New Beginnings!

I wish for you to manifest all your Wishes and Dreams, much Health, Love, Abundance and Joy for 2019!

2018 was for me a year with a lot of challenges that I needed to overcome, lots of waves to ride, but I did it! I managed to create a calm sea for my Self again as I decided to Let Go of things and people that no longer had a place in my Life and on my Journey. I can look back on 2018 as a year of challenges, but also a year of teachings and lessons, and I am Very Grateful for that as it’s all part of growing and self development.

2019 will be an exciting year! From the end of January I will start with a 12 months training to become a Shamanic Healing Practitioner. Beside Reiki Healing and Herbalism I will also be able to provide this by the end of this year. I love the feeling to be able to combine Healing practices with Herbal Medicine and Remedies.

Shamanic Healing is very intensive but very effective. For example it contains Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Journeying, Plant Medicine, using Rituals and Tools, Soul Loss, Power Retrieval, Cutting Cords and Release, Shamanic Surgery, Energy Field rebuilding, Cleansing, Protection and much more.

I am very excited to start as Shamanic Healing is not something you just decide to do, it’s a Calling. For me it’s all about helping People, Nature, Mother Earth and Animals. All I can do to provide my piece of contribution to Healing Humanity and the World. For me personally it’s my Soul Mission, my Life Purpose.

I will try to keep up with blog posts so you can follow this year my Journey towards becoming a Shamanic Healing Practitioner. Once graduated I will of course start providing sessions for clients.

I hope that you also have something to look forward to, or that you maybe have planned something for your Self to enrich your Life, I would love to hear about it!

Create a Wonderful Year for your Self and your Love Ones, and get the most out of it!

With Love,

Angelique ღ
