Distant Healing with Reiki and Crystals

Reiki and Crystals: Crystals are a wonderful tool to use during Reiki sessions to both assist with the healing and amplify the energies being delivered to the person receiving the healing sessions. In addition to adding the crystals’ high-vibe energies to the session, crystals can also be used like a surrogate for distant healing sessions and programmed to assist you with this type of Reiki healing too.

This method of Reiki distant healing is particularly useful for children and animals (who struggle to sit still 😉 ). By infusing a crystal, like you would with the surrogate method, and placing it near the child or pet will allow healing to take place.

While traditional Reiki doesn’t involve the teaching or use of crystals, over the years many practitioners have discovered that crystals work beautifully with Reiki, and as a result has become a common subject taught by Reiki teachers.  Read more “Distant Healing with Reiki and Crystals”

What is a Reiki baby?

What is a Reiki BabyIt’s not uncommon to hear those who practice Reiki, and even some Doula’s, use the term ‘Reiki baby’, but for those who are not studying or practicing this modality the term can seem a little foreign.

A Reiki baby is simply a sweet term given to an infant who receives Reiki treatments while they were still in the womb, or after birth, as they are so relaxed and contented and seem to respond differently to the world around them than other infants who haven’t received Reiki.

Every newborn is unique and special, but most infants can show signs stress, fussiness, separation anxiety (yes, it happens to newborns!), and even colic after the first week of birth. While infant stress can be harmless, continuous anxiety at such a young age can create imbalance and disharmony that may negatively influence your beautiful bundle’s growth and emotional development (which can also influence physical development).

Reiki is particularly beneficial to preemie babies, special needs infants, or those who have had a traumatic/stressful start to life. Not only do treatments benefit these babes, it also benefits their families, stressed moms and dads who often feel helpless are reassured when they see their child instantly relax under the touch of Reiki.

The benefits of Energy Work for Children

benefits of reiki for childrenMy favourite clients are my little clients, and their parents (ofcourse!) 👧🏼💞🌱🌞Kids are so open to energy work and holistic tools that the effects are seen almost instantly! When looking at the benefits of energy work for children, it’s a no brainer!

Diet, screen time, environmental and noise pollution, physical activity, time outside, etc. are some of the things that play a massive role in child wellbeing, behaviour, and physical health. I see so many parents who are distressed over their child being tearful, frustrated, irritable, moody, aggressive, unable to concentrate, and so on.

Reiki, Crystal Healing, Chakra Balancing, Emotional and Vibrational Aromatherapy are just a few of the holistic methods that are incredibly beneficial to the growing mind, bodies, emotions, and spirits of children and babies, as it restores the natural balance within the body and offers support for those areas that a child may be having difficult with but they may not yet be able to communicate.

Learning how your child energetic, emotional, and mental anatomy functions offers insight into their physical wellbeing and behaviour. I love offering treatments to children, but my greater joy is empowering their parents to do it for them (the children) by teaching the parent how to do the work themselves.

Energetic Anatomy of Children – Sacral Chakra

“To lack feeling is to not be alive, but to act on every feeling is to be a child”, Brandon Sanderson.

If you are familiar with your Sacral Center, your second Chakra, you’ll know that this center governs creativity, movement, feeling and sensation, emotions, sexuality, need, pleasure (both sexual and non), and desire. All of these aspects play an important role in the development of your child.

A broad overview of the Second energy center, and its developmental characteristics:
🧡DEVELOPMENT – 6 months to 2 years
🧡Body Location – Lower Abdomen
🧡Birthright – The right to feel
🧡Element – Water
🧡Purpose – MOVEMENT
🧡AKA Sacral Chakra

Senses are an important part of understanding our world, as it is through our senses that we are able to bridge the gap between our internal and external worlds. It is through their senses that a baby is able to feel and perceive, and their value system begins to form.

From the Base center of stability and foundation, a child progresses to the second center where they begin to develop feelings and movement – and they begin to experience CHANGE. Through consistency, their expanding consciousness begins to find meaning, and through change, they discover stimulation and expansion.

Emotions form building blocks to transformation on all levels. Obstructed emotional expression infringes upon a child’s basic right to feel.

Disturbances to the development of this center:

  • Emotionally volatile environments
  • Emotional abuse/manipulation
  • Denial of a child’s feeling states
  • Restriction of movement and exploration – Separation Anxiety
  • Sexual and physical abuse
  • Neglect
  • Restricted play
  • Guilt from parent/caretaker
  • Denial or restriction of things that bring pleasure and joy
  • Inherited issues
  • Cut off from feeling, or being told to stop feeling

Imbalances in this center can later manifest as:

  • emotional disorders (oversensitive, fearful, anxious, emotional dependency)
  • Poor social skills (does not know how to interact in their world)
  • Denial of pleasure
  • Sexuality issues
  • Fear of change
  • Poor boundaries
  • Obsessive attachment
  • Rigidity in the body
  • Problems with reproductive organs (fertility and menstruation, impotence, endometriosis), spleen, and urinary system
  • Loss of ‘appetite’ for food, sex, life.
  • Eating disorders
  • Overly sexual behaviour for child’s age

Understanding how this center influences the development of your children allows a broader perspective of just how important it is for babies and children to experience their world, to feel their feelings and emotions, and to have the freedom (with mom and dad’s watchful eye) to physically explore their world safely.

As they begin to become aware they are no longer attached to their mother and begin to explore the new sensations – fear and joy – that come as a result of this change, how we as parents guide them through this process can ensure they later grow to be comfortable with CHANGE, what they’re feeling, and that it’s okay to have and experience emotions as a direct result of an experience – instilling self-assurance and emotional stability. 🙏❤

Flower Therapy for Kids

flower therapy for kids“…I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body.” ~ Eckart Tolle. 🌺

Hey Momma’s 🙋🏻If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know how much I love gentle, healing energies of Flower Therapy! 🌸If you’re new here 👋Flower Therapy is a form of energy healing done by bringing the unique colour and essence of a particular flowing into the space of the Chakra, or area of our body, that it vibrationally corresponds too. ✨Flower Therapy is a form of both active and silent meditation, from subconsciously selecting the flowers you want to work with, to placing them mindfully on your body and laying quietly while they work their magic! 🌈

Flower Therapy is an amazing holistic exercise that we can do with, and for, our littles; helping to release excessive energies that may be building up in their systems, grounding and connecting them, cleansing and restoring their natural balance (especially when they’ve been around too many electromagnetic frequencies) and energizing them with all those gorgeous high vibes! 💫Kids are naturally more dominant in their lower four chakras, especially from birth to 7 years, making them more in touch with their natural connection to the Earth, but is great for kids of all ages! 💚

So how do you go about doing this?

~ Allow your child to pick a flower for each Chakra (or the colours of the 🌈) , using white or purple for the crown (check previous flower Therapy posts for suggestions).

~ Let me spend as long as they need for this process, they will be attracted to the flower that they need (same applies for you momma!!)

~ Depending on the age of your little, you can have them lay the flowers on their body making a rainbow from their feet up to their head, or they can play with them as they sit quietly with them self.

~ If they are younger, ask them to make patterns or pictures with their flowers – what they create is not important, it’s the process of mindfully having the flowers in their personal space.

~ If they are older, ask them to lay down with the flowers in place, to close their eyes and imagine the rainbow lights from the flowers filling their body, starting with red and ending with their head.

~ When they are finished, they will know, ask them if they saw anything in their imagination, or felt any sensations in their body, if they had any emotions come up or memories while they were laying there. This is a subtle way of introducing them to being conscious of their thoughts, emotions, energies and physical body.

flower therapy for children ~ While your child is choosing their flowers, pay attention to the flowers, and colours, they reach for first! This will give you some insight into which areas, and chakras, need work.

Children are growing and learning (about themselves, others and their world), experiencing new things, overcoming challenges and disappointments, creating and pushing boundaries, loving and being loved, exploring independence but wanting security…. and all of these natural process’ can influence their energetic (and emotional) health. Giving them the tools to help them through these areas and challenges teaches them to;
~ Be conscious of them self, and others
~ Take time to care for them self and respect that others require the same
~ Be empowered and self-heal

Doing this activity with your little is a great way to spend QT with them, and get some beautiful, natural healing in at the same time 🙂 Questions? Pop them below.

I am Heart Chakra!

Hello Beauty! Today we begin the next chapter of our Chakra series – to learn a little more than the basics about our Heart Chakra!

I’m always so grateful that the information & education I share is able to reach so many,  if you’re enjoying this series I would love for you to pass it forward & share the love with your friends!

Our Heart Chakra, our fourth centre is located above our heart & lungs, and represents;
our ability to love & be loved,
to maintain a healthy balance in relationships,
self-acceptance,
self-love,
self-growth,
empathy, compassion & the ability to forgive,
gratitude,
our morals & values.

So how do we know if our Heart Chakra is balanced or could use a little TLC?
☘️Balanced ~ You have no difficulty in acting kind, loving & respectful towards others & have healthy, respectful, win-win relationships. You have healthy self-appreciation & can say that you truly love, respect & appreciate the person you are! You are able to deal with loss in a healthy way, & allow yourself to forgive (yourself & others).
☘️Imbalanced – You’ve noticed that you act unkind & disrespectful towards others, & people can be unloving & disrespectful towards you. you may be in an unhealthy, imbalanced relationship & you often feel unhappy/sad. You don’t particularly care for the person that you are or have become, & tend to experience more negative emotions than good. You don’t deal with disappointment or loss well & tend to hold grudges.

If the heart chakra becomes unbalanced, you may feel detached from the world around you. Each breath we take connects us to our physical & spiritual world, and, if unbalanced can lead to a disconnection from the people we love, love for ourselves, & love for the Earth. Difficult relationships can heighten this and we can lose hope – we lose sight of beauty, love, empathy, & compassion.
If any of these resonate with you, or you wish to learn more, follow along as next we’ll learn simple self-healing exercises to bring you more balance & healing to this centre.
Love & Blessings, Kerry. X

Solar Plexus Chakra Meditation

Solar Plexus Chakra Healing Meditation Hello Beautiful Souls! We are at the end of our Solar Plexus Chakra journey, and now that you have the basic knowledge and tools to heal, balance energise this centre, here is a simple Solar Plexus Chakra Meditation that will have you feeling more connected and energised.

You can use your beautiful Solar Plexus crystals & essential oils to assist this meditation! ✨

Find a comfortable space to sit or lay quietly & close your eyes.
☀️Focus your attention on your breath, take four deep breaths in, opening & extending your chest and exhale with a long ‘aaaah’ sigh.
☀️Find your attention on your Solar Plexus Chakra, your chakra of self-confidence, ambition, personal power, ego, manifestation, abundance, will, self-esteem and clairsentience.
☀️Notice its colour, how does it look today? Is it a bright, warm sunshine yellow, or a darker, muddy mustard colour? How does it feel today? Do you feel abundant, confident and have healthy boundaries in your life? Or are you feeling powerless, lacking motivation, or very rigid in your opinions – living in your ego? Whatever you notice, don’t judge yourself in this moment, only observe.
☀️Now imagine your Solar Plexus Chakra begin to start spinning in a clockwise direction, imagine the lotus petals of this Chakra open up & a vibrant yellow light filling into the center of this Chakra as it continues to spin, faster & faster, clearing out all the negative energy blocking it & replacing it with only brilliant, healing energy.
☀️Repeat the following (in your mind or out loud) “I am strong. I am powerful. I am confident”.
☀️Stay in this space for as long as you feel the need, trust your intuition here. You will know when your Chakra has had its fill.
☀️Once you feel that your Chakra is done, notice it’s spinning slow down as the yellow light begins to pull away, & the lotus petals close up and over your Chakra.
☀️Bring your attention back to your breath, your body & your environment and when you are ready open your eyes.☀️Chanting “RAM” (Raaaaahhhmmmm) during the above meditation is an alternative to the affirmation, or you can include it after your affirmations before closing your Chakra.

Have you been following this series? I’d love to hear from you!
