HEALING BEGINS WITH YOURSELF SO YOU CAN HELP AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS.
I am sure that all of us at some time or another have felt inclined to help someone as much as we can, however I have learned from experience that we need to help ourselves first before we can offer ourselves to other people. Healing ourselves can sometimes take years to get to the root cause of illness and these illnesses have metaphysical reasons for existing:
Alongside discovering physical conditions, Reiki also shows the Metaphysical symptoms too:
This is where information from the head goes if it is not cleared. It is the storage space for unresolved feelings, of fear, anger, etc.
Storage over long periods of time for anger/fear.
Anger which eventually turns to bitterness.
This is the area where all the things that have been ‘swallowed’ go for digestion. Metaphysically this can relate to preconceptions from childhood, authority figures, old thoughts, feelings, and ideas that you may have moved away from. Ulcers can be related to old thoughts, feelings and ideas that no longer have a place in your life.
This is where we store our “unfinished business.” This can relate to the death of a person/job/lifestyle etc. Which have created strings with the past.
Colitis/diahorroea is letting go of old feelings, thoughts, and ideas without actually dealing with them, usually anger/fear/guilt.
This is where issues with men, birth, termination of birth, miscarriage, rape, incest, abuse, fear/guilt/anger about sexuality is stored.
Sexual guilt/anger with women, powerlessness, helplessness, birth issues, incest/sexual abuse.
The left-hand knee relates to support of an emotional kind, the right knee external support such as material values, friends etc. Support from mother on the left, father on the right.
The head is the computer headquarters of the body. This is the place where action begins with a ‘thought.’ It is important to treat the head, to keep a balance. Many times, headaches can be associated with feelings that we withhold, and then cause imbalance if we try to continually ignore these feelings. Headaches can also be caused by unshed tears, anger, confusion and over analysing.
Corresponds with ‘inner seeing,’ feeling and hearing (the third eye is related to our psychic centre). Conditions can arise when we believe we are not ‘seen’ by others, and not seeing what others want, and also not wanting to see what is right in front of our nose.
The eyes are connected to the sinus where stored tears are held. The eyes are also directly connected to the ovaries and uterus in women, and to the prostate gland and testes in men.
Blocking out what we don’t want to hear, or being heard by others, and the ears are also related to balance, clarity, and high blood pressure.
Throat blockages can be caused by literally choking on ideas, words, thoughts, or beliefs. Not wanting to speak out for oneself, or lack of self-expression.
This is related to the shoulders, carrying extra burdens and responsibilities. Also associated with having a ‘stiff necked approach’ or rigid thinking.
This is an interesting area, for it deals with heart aches, heart break, grief, loss, sadness, rejection, or abandonment. Blockages of love going in or out of the heart, imbalance of giving and receiving.
A good Reiki position to help with any of the above, is to hold the right hand over the chest area, and the left hand over the right knee. This helps to release any pent-up emotions.
These are the support system, large hips can denote a comfort zone in weight gain, they are often related to stored anger/fear which creates a fat barrier, feeling vulnerable can also show by being too thin.
ANKLES AND FEET
Feet are what enable us to stand up for yourself. Setting standards, feet contain points for all the rest of the body as understood in Reflexology. Our feet represent our ‘grounding’ in life. Our ankles relate to ‘thinking’ and analysing and questioning.
SHOULDERS & UPPER BACK
The right shoulder denotes burdens and responsibilities, carried for the family etc. The left shoulder denotes burdens and responsibilities of the emotional/mental kind. The upper right side of the back stores irritation, giving too much, holding back. Being imbalanced with giving and receiving.The upper left side of the back stores grief, sorrow, loss, and guilt. Sometimes also too much receiving and not enough giving.
ADRENALS & KIDNEYS
The adrenals and kidneys are the ‘shock absorbers’ of the body. Always treat this area for shock, trauma, and illness, stress of any kind, low energy, and fear.
