Reiki: How It Works & My Experience With Masters

Published

on

Most people have at least heard of Reiki. Some of you may have even taken a course or gone on to become a Reiki Master. But many of you may be wondering, what is Reiki? How hard is Reiki to learn? Could you do Reiki? I have been attuned to Masters in Usui, Seikim, and Karuna practices. Though my Karuna Master never sent in my paperwork, I have been using those magnificent symbols which are metaphorically etched into my hands for over 18 years.

I got my first level Reiki Certification at the Hilo Adult Education Extension program back in ’93. I remember it very clearly for two different reasons. The Reiki Master wore a hip holster for his double terminated crystals, explaining he figured that this would protect his auric field. My second lasting impression formed because one of my fellow students timidly approached me before class and asked if she could ask a personal question. How does one really answer that anyway? Doing what most people do, I braced myself for the worst and said with a quiet smile, “Sure, what do you want to know?” Well it turns out that when the students took turns on working on each other for group Reiki, they all noticed when working on me that I gave off a very distinctive odor. Not just once, but every time. She interjected that it wasn’t a bad smell; on the contrary it was much like incense. They wondered what foods I ate to be able to infuse the very air with my aroma. I had to laugh. I do follow a food combined diet but it doesn’t prohibit nor demand particular food consumption. However, I am an aromatherapist and at that time was manufacturing a line of holistic oil formulas. One of my bad habits was, when an essential oil spilled or overflowed onto my hands, I wouldn’t stop and clean up, but in a ‘waste not want not’ fashion, would simply wipe the excess oil somewhere on my body. When making 30 vials of love oil or arthritis oil for stock, this would add up to a considerable amount of accumulated essential oils in my body. Reiki is energy which often produces heat, and this activated the residual essences in my body and allowed them to float up off of me and waft around the noses of my peers.

Reiki, as I said, is just energy. It is all around us for all of us to use. I believe Reiki has been around for as long as people have had hands or even just intention, because it simply involves using your hands to garner and amplify already existing energy into a focused direction. Throughout the ages, wise women, sages, shamans, prophets, and physicians have applied the use of “laying on of hands” to assist others in their healing paths. Reiki can be used for any condition, illness, discomfort, or emotional turmoil, or even just for relaxing and feeling good. I often use Reiki to enhance my hypnotherapy sessions when the person becomes upset or stuck.

I am fortunate to live in the town of Hilo, Hawaii where the person some call the last living Reiki Master lived — Ms. Takata. It is now a chiropractic office with a totem pole out front, go figure. I have certified every woman who has passed through our Aloha Healing Women retreats in Level One and Two Reiki so that they could use this amazing energy tool for themselves and others. I have done quite a few public classes as well here in Hawaii, and have been privileged to be able to introduce more than a few hundred women to the magic of Reiki. I also include in every week of retreat a Reiki session with crystals. Plus there is always the Reiki I do on myself, my friends, and (quite less than I should) on my partner. If you can’t tell by now, Reiki is a big part of my teaching and my personal life.

In a nutshell, Reiki involves imagining light which is infinite and all powerful from the universe entering your body through the top of your head and filling your body, mind, and soul with radiant white energy – light that diminishes all darkness and negative energy in any form. One usually uses their hands to direct the Reiki light onto themselves or others. You may also direct this Fierce White Light, as Dr. Usui calls it, long distances to others so that they may receive it anywhere in the universe. Reiki light is like universal consciousness and though we speak of it as light, it is really energy that has no form or “matter.” Thus you can “send” Reiki, as I have many times, to people in Switzerland, New Zealand, Toronto, or even to the great beyond and they will receive it at some level.

I love to teach succinctly without a lot of mumbo jumbo and I can pretty much hit on all the basics and highlights in a single afternoon. Having trained many types of people, from novice to Master, and sat in on other training programs, I can tell you, it isn’t rocket science. In fact the people who are the most naturally adept at Reiki are the ones who just feel the Reiki energy working. Some people are simply born channelers of light and take to it easily. For others, the concept of Reiki gets in the way because people try too hard, like it’s kung fu or something you have to do a certain way. Some people may have low energy so the Reiki often is just filling their deep well until the void is filled and then the Reiki can overflow. But everybody can do Reiki; like everything else, it just takes practice.

I often describe Reiki light like a tuning fork of energy. It naturally goes where it is needed, like water flowing into an ice tray, continuing to fill the emptiness until complete. Reiki sessions will vibrate throughout your body for up to a week, just from one short session. Dr. Usui also says that Reiki, being the Fierce White Light, works instantaneously. Though some people need a little time to relax to accept and receive the Reiki, spending thirty minutes on one spot is not more advantageous than just a few.

Not everyone who receives Reiki will have the same experience. It is energy, and sometimes the energy is warm or hot and sometimes it is cool. When I do massage work, I always explain to clients that I also do Reiki and accordingly they may feel my hands get warm, or surges of “electricity,” or maybe nothing at all. Once when I was doing a massage/Reiki session and I had done the Reiki head positions and worked myself down to the leg, the person jumped off the table and nearly shouted, “I don’t know how you are getting your hands to be so hot, but it’s freaking me out, there is just no way your hands can be that hot, please stop!” Of course I did.

I know my hands get hot because I feel the flow of energy going through them, but I can only feel the heat created if I hold the back of my hand against the person’s skin like you would when feeling for a temperature. I also use crystals in my work and one lady, after I had finished her session, grabbed up the gems and exclaimed, ‘They were hot, just a second ago they were HOT! Now they’re not, what happened?” Well, I was doing Reiki and then I stopped doing Reiki. That’s how Reiki works. Other people’s hands may be cold to the touch but emit a definite flow of energy. The hot/warm feeling is very soothing but can be disturbing to the more rational thinkers.

Reiki takes no special tools and once you get the hang of it you take it everywhere you go and can spike it over the ocean if you care. It is one of the many amazing tools that I use but is precious as it is perfect for anything that ails you.

One of the great things that I do with my hypnotherapy is, when I do the Reiki Masters program, I do a session whereby the new Reiki Master can meet their personal Reiki guide through a guided visualization. This is a delight for me, as I get to ask whomever has shown up questions about Reiki. One thing I will tell you now is that Dr. Usui, Master Hayashi, and Ms. Takata don’t really care about how you become a Reiki person or what level you achieve or are certified for. They just want people to do the Reiki and live the Reiki. Dr. Usui once said to me, “The Reiki just is, put your ego aside, you are not the Reiki. You will only block the Reiki by thinking about the Reiki, let the Reiki be.” And so it is.

I will be talking more about my conversations with the Reiki Masters in another article so stay tuned. Feel free to leave a question in the comments section and I will try to respond as best I can. Check out my other articles at CE here.

I do long distance Reiki sessions by appointment and will soon have trainings online. You can contact me at http://www.healthretreats.info or kealanoel@yahoo.com.

Aloha and Reiki out.

Natural Law (Part 3): Moving Beyond Enslavement

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Our capacity to escape the enslavement and control we experience at the hands of our authority today is predicated on work on a personal level to become truly sovereign individuals.

  • Reflect On:

    How would our lives be different if we all knew and acted like we were sovereign individuals, answerable to no one? What kind of world would we create?

(note: if you haven’t read them already, I highly recommend reading the previous articles Natural Law (Part 1): A Reformed Satanist Illuminates Our Natural Power To Create and Natural Law (Part 2): Spending Our Spiritual Currency Wisely as an essential context for this discussion, as well as the video on Natural Law by Mark Passio referred to in this article.) 

So far, our discussion has revolved around the capacity of human beings to create, in adherence with the principles that govern Natural Law. This capacity, when taken in the aggregate, makes us collectively responsible for the world that has been made manifest today. And looking at the world today, it is pretty safe to say that we have been party to our own enslavement, and on a collective level we still continue to sit idly by while our rights and freedoms are increasingly taken away.

This, perhaps above anything, is the reason that Mark Passio did his Natural Law seminar, to alert us to the fact that we have the power to create the world of freedom and harmony that we all say we want, but we still seem to lack the knowledge and the will to do it. By offering the knowledge behind it, Mark hopes that a proper understanding begins to proliferate among us and our will to change our world is sufficiently stoked.

The capacity to change things in our world requires adequate knowledge. We must learn how this process works, and then incorporate this knowledge in how we function internally (i.e. ‘Change starts within’). It is only when we first come to grips with the nature of our personal sovereignty that we are then capable of creating a world in which we are free.

We Are All Sovereign

Passio notes that Natural Law is expressed in human beings in either positive or negative ways. To express it positively, in other words, to create the experience for ourselves that we want, we need to be motivated by Love, grounded in Knowledge, and feel that we have Sovereignty. However, Natural Law is expressed negatively, and hence creates what we don’t want, when the generative emotion is Fear, our foundation is Ignorance, and our internal sense of self is Confusion.

Most people in our current world don’t consider themselves to be sovereign. In fact, in a survey Passio quotes, he said that only 11% of people questioned thought they were sovereign. Hence Passio makes his next point as emphatically as he can:

advertisement - learn more

Why I say every single person here is a sovereign is because there is no such thing, never has been any such thing, and never will be any such thing as legitimacy to slavery. That has never existed, does not exist now, and never will exist. Slavery is an illegitimate concept. None of us are slaves.

The condition of slavery has been imposed upon people, but it has never in history been legitimate. And it never will in history be legitimate. So there is no legitimacy to the concept of slavery, of the rightful rulership of another being, through directly imposing your control through coercion. Doesn’t exist. That’s a big part of what Natural Law is about.

Anarchy

The reason this point is so important is that most of us have been brainwashed since we were young to believe that we need authority in our lives. Most of us still believe that we need a government to rule us by coercion. Many of us fear that otherwise we would be living in a state of–peril of all perils–anarchy!

But a state of ‘anarchy’, according to Passio, is exactly what sovereign beings should be striving for, because anarchy simply means, no ruler to which we have to bow down to, no master for whom we are the slaves. From its etymology, a state of anarchy does not mean chaos, confusion, or disorder. It simply means there’s nobody around to tell us what to do, that we are all able to act freely and without coercion–that we are individually sovereign.

However, this condition does not come about just by knowing we are sovereign by nature. Individuals of a given group or society have to fully embody the qualities of a sovereign individual in order for a society to be able to function in a state of anarchy, or even bring about the removal of all rulership in the first place. For Passio, our work is the development of personal integrity, in which all aspects of our being are in harmony with one another.

The Alignment of Thoughts, Emotions, And Actions

The way Passio terms it, our path to true sovereignty is by becoming our own ‘monarchs.’

A Sovereign is a Monarch (mon-: “one”; archon: “ruler”), a single ruler who only rules ‘the Kingdom of Self’; Sovereignty is a state in which one controls one’s own thoughts, emotions, and actions, and by bringing them into Unity/Non-Contradiction/Non-Duality, attains Mastery of one’s own Consciousness.

Bringing one’s thoughts, emotions, and actions into a state of unity–where have we heard this before? Of course, this corresponds to the Law of Attraction, our capacity to bring into being our desired manifestations based on our intentions–the power to create the world we want, essentially.

Emancipation

And so, it turns out, the way we get freed from slavery is not through violent revolution, as some would say our history books have taught us. Remember, our history book are written by our masters, and they are more than happy that we feel that we are free while they implement ever more insidious and subtle forms of slavery. It is well-known by our authority, and something we will discuss in subsequent articles, that slaves who do not know they are slaves are much more productive, and much less force and coercion is required for their obedience.

And that is why our personal internal work is paramount. The more we have self-rule as individuals, the more we can overcome the dictates of illegitimate authority as a collective. We can literally walk away from it, remove any power it has over us. As Passio notes, ‘If you have internal monarchy, you can have external anarchy.’

Our emancipation from slavery thus awaits the process by which individuals in our society develop self-responsibility, self-control, self-mastery. We will continue this series by discussing some of the people whose current lives are harbingers of personal sovereignty in adherence to Natural Law.

Natural Measles Immunity — Better Protection & More Long-Term Benefits Than Vaccines

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Natural immunity compared to the immunity provided by vaccines is extremely different. Public health authorities have made a case for measles eradication since the early 1980s, 50+ years of mass measles vaccination have stopped nothing.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do pharmaceutical companies continue to make false claims about vaccines, using mass marketing? Why are they allowed to? And why does everyone believe them?

Stories about vaccines in the popular press tend to be unabashedly one-sided, generally portraying vaccination as a universal (and essential) “good” with virtually no downside. This unscientific bias is particularly apparent in news reports about measles, which often are little more than hysterical diatribes against the unvaccinated.

Although public health authorities have made a case for measles eradication since the early 1980s, 50-plus years of mass measles vaccination and high levels of vaccine coverage have not managed to stop wild and vaccine-strain measles virus from circulating. Routine measles vaccination also has had some worrisome consequences. Perhaps the most significant of these is the shifting of measles risks to age groups formerly protected by natural immunity. Specifically, modern-day occurrences of measles have come to display a “bimodal” pattern in which “the two most affected populations are infants aged less than 1 year and adults older than 20 years”—the very population groups in whom measles complications can be the most clinically severe. As one group of researchers has stated, “The common knowledge indicating that measles [as well as mumps and rubella] are considered as benign diseases dates back to the pre-vaccine area and is not valid anymore.”

A little history

Before the introduction of measles vaccines in the 1960s, nearly all children contracted measles before adolescence, and parents and physicians accepted measles as a “more or less inevitablepart of childhood.” In industrialized countries, measles morbidity and mortality already were low and declining, and many experts questioned whether a vaccine was even needed or would be used.

Measles outbreaks in the pre-vaccine era also exhibited “variable lethality”; in specific populations living in close quarters (such as military recruits and residents of crowded refugee camps), measles mortality could be high, but even so, “mortality rates differed more than 10-fold across camps/districts, even though conditions were similar.” For decades both prior to and following the introduction of measles vaccination, those working in public health understood that poor nutrition and compromised health status were key contributors to measles-related mortality, with measles deaths occurring primarily “in individuals below established height and weight norms.” A study of measles mortality in war-torn Bangladesh in the 1970s found that most of the children who died were born either in the two years preceding or during a major famine.

Moms who get measles vaccines instead of experiencing the actual illness have less immunity to offer their babies, resulting in a ‘susceptibility gap’…

Measles vaccination and infants

Before the initiation of mass vaccination programs for measles, mothers who had measles as children protected their infants through the transfer of maternal antibodies. However, naturally acquired immunity and vaccine-induced immunity are qualitatively different. Moms who get measles vaccines instead of experiencing the actual illness have less immunity to offer their babies, resulting in a “susceptibility gap” between early infancy and the first ostensibly protective measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine at 12 to 15 months of age.

A Luxembourg-based study published in 2000 confirmed the susceptibility gap in an interesting way. The researchers compared serum samples from European adolescents who had been vaccinated around 18 months of age to serum samples from Nigerian mothers who had not been vaccinated but had experienced natural measles infection at a young age. They then looked at the capacity of the antibodies detected in the serum to “neutralize” various wild-type measles virus strains. The researchers found that the sera from mothers with natural measles immunity substantially outperformed the sera from the vaccinated teens: only two of 20 strains of virus “resisted neutralization” in the Nigerian mothers’ group, but 10 of 20 viral strains resisted neutralization in the vaccination group. This complex analysis led the authors to posit greater measles vulnerability in infants born to vaccinated mothers.

…many vaccines may eventually become susceptible to vaccine-modified measles…and consequently complicate measles control strategies

The Luxembourg researchers also noted that in the Nigerian setting, where widespread vaccination took hold far later than in Europe, the mothers in question had had “multiple contacts with endemic wild-type viruses” and that these repeat contacts had served an important booster function. One of the authors later conducted a study that examined this booster effect more closely. That study found that re-exposure to wild-type measles resulted in “a significantly prolonged antibody boost in comparison to [boosting through] revaccination.” Taking note of expanding vaccine coverage around the world and reduced circulation of wild-type measles virus, the researchers concluded in a third study that “many vaccinees may eventually become susceptible to vaccine-modified measles…and consequently, complicate measles control strategies.”

Bimodal distribution

With the disappearance of maternally endowed protection, what has happened to measles incidence in infants? A review of 53 European studies (2001–2011) focusing on the burden of measles in those “too young to be immunized” found that as many as 83% of measles cases in some studies and under 1% in other studies were in young infants.

At the same time, the predictions of an increased percentage of measles cases in older teens and adults have also come true. Reporting on a higher “death-to-case ratio” in the over-15 group in 1975 (not many years after widespread adoption of measles vaccination in the U.S.), a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researcher wrote that the higher ratio could be “indicative of a greater risk of complications from measles, exposing the unprotected adult to the potential of substantial morbidity.”

In recent measles outbreaks in Europe and the U.S., large proportions of cases are in individuals aged 15 or older:

  • In the U.S., 57 of the 85 measles cases (67%) reported in 2016 were at least 15 years of age. U.S. researchers also have conservatively estimated that at least 9% of measles cases occur in vaccinated individuals.
  • Among several thousand laboratory-confirmed cases of measles and an additional thousand “probable” or “possible” cases in Italy in 2017, 74% were in individuals at least 15 years of age, and 42% of those were hospitalized.
  • Examining a smaller number of laboratory-confirmed measles cases in Sicily (N=223), researchers found that half of the cases were in adults age 19 or older, and clinical complications were more common in adults compared to children (45% versus 26%). Likewise, about 44% of measles cases in France from 2008 to 2011 (N=305) were in adults (with an average age in their mid-20s), and the adults were more than twice as likely to be hospitalized as infected children.

Time to reevaluate

Pre-vaccination, most residents of industrialized countries accepted measles as a normal and even trivial childhood experience. Many people, including clinicians, also understood the interaction between measles and nutrition, and, in particular, the links between vitamin A deficiency and measles: “Measles in a child is more likely to exacerbate any existing nutritional deficiency, and children who are already deficient in vitamin A are at much greater risk of dying from measles.” Instead of inching the age of initial measles vaccination down to ever-younger ages, as is increasingly being proposed, there could be greater value in supporting children’s nutrition and building overall health—through practical interventions that “improve[e]…existing dietaries through the inclusion of relatively inexpensive foods that are locally available and well within the reach of the poor.”

Ironically, while acute childhood infections such as measles protect against cancer, the rise of chronic childhood illnesses (disproportionately observed in vaccinated children) is linked to elevated cancer risks.

There are many other tradeoffs of measles vaccination that remain largely unexplored, including the important role of fever-inducing infectious childhood diseases in reducing subsequent cancer risks. Ironically, while acute childhood infections such as measles protect against cancer, the rise of chronic childhood illnesses (disproportionately observed in vaccinated children) is linked to elevated cancer risks. These tradeoffs—along with the dangerous loss of infant access to protective maternal antibodies and the higher rates of measles illness and complications in older teens and adults—suggest that measles vaccination deserves renewed scrutiny.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.
