Reiki and Shifting Attitudes Around Cancer

When I was diagnosed with cancer 9 years ago, what I first noticed was the fear that is associated with it. Totally understandable. The fear in the doctor’s voice when she told me over the phone. The fear I felt in my gut when I heard the news. The look on my husband’s face when I hung up the phone.

What if we could approach it right from the beginning with a sense of positivity? Some of you may shake your heads or think it depends……I have seen the power of this attitude work on people with stage 4 cancer. The whole family can be involved and those who surround them.

Where does this start? At the doctor’s office. I speak from experience when I say the first order of business is the doctor preparing the patient for the worst case scenario. This is how they prepared me: “Expect pain, hair loss, loss of appetite, nausea, lack of energy, possible job loss if too many days/months are required to recuperate.” Basically, they were telling me, “Expect hell to take over your body and live with the uncertainty that once we remove it, there is no promise that it will not return.”

What if I said, excuse my language, “Fuck that!”? What if we all said that when doctors give some sort of death sentence or negative, hopeless outlook? What if the whole family said it??? And what if doctors did some research and were able to provide their patients with options, alternative therapies, alternative attitudes for that matter?

I’ll tell you what would happen. Hope, Empowerment, Faith, Trust, Courage, LIFE! Life would happen people. There are many choices out there that can shift the outcome, that can even put a positive spin on such an experience. And not only for the patient but for EVERYONE involved. Family, caretakers, counselors, nurses, and yes, even doctors.

What I chose, after doing my own research that first week of diagnosis, was a complementary medicine, meaning a therapy that aids any other form of treatment, was Reiki. This is a Japanese form of gentle hands-on healing that simply relaxes the stressed out, anxious body and mind. This allows the receiver of Reiki to take a break from the energy of fear and sorrow and hopelessness that surrounds cancer. Result of being able to relax? The body can do what it needs to in order to begin healing itself. Reiki can also be used to calm those who are supporting the patient. This is very important when establishing a healing community.

Reiki is for absolutely everyone. It does not have to be someone with cancer. Any illness, any reason for someone needing to relax, to feel better, to help with emotional pain. Reiki is simple and gentle. The hands-on aspect creates a nurturing, comforting sensation many need during such shocking life changes. Reiki prepares the body physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

So, rather than just focusing on the sickness, loss, and pain from the traditional form of ¬†‘treatments’, I call for the patient to become her own advocate, her own source of hope and motivation. Begin with a positive, brave attitude and order some Reiki! Now, that would be a prescription that would really benefit the masses.

If you would like to learn more about how Reiki and I can assist you with your healing, and facing the journey ahead of you, please visit me at www.InsyncEnergy.com. We can chat for a free 20 minute consultation or you can schedule a Reiki session and test it out for yourself.

What I want people to understand is that there are options. It doesn’t have to be JUST preparing for the worst. Research and find what resonates with you. Let’s do our homework and share with our doctors. Let’s bring to their attention that they can help turn this game around, too.

Reiki is also for animals experiencing pain, illness, stress, or life changes.

Blessings to you and may you find peace and support in all of your life’s experiences.

Reiki is Unique and Personal

There was a time when I would pause and sweat when someone would ask me to explain Reiki. It’s an explanation that is best understood when served as a demonstration. In short, Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that promotes stress reduction and relaxation. That is what most people receive from it on the surface of their Reiki experience.

What comes next is literally different for each receiver because Reiki provides whatever is needed for each individual. One person, after working with Reiki, may sleep more deeply. Where as another finds she has an extra bounce in her step. I have heard from one of my clients, after only one session, her first Reiki experience, her grandparents came to her as she was on my table. With her eyes closed, she saw herself floating on a riverboat and her grandparents waved to her from the shore. She missed and loved them very much. She needed to ‘hear from them’ and ‘see them’ that day as part of her healing.

So, now, when someone asks me what is Reiki, I reply, “It is a connection to whatever it is you are needing at the time of the experience.”

If you need peace, Reiki allows you peace. If your body is asking for love, it supplies your heart with an unexplainable sensation of warmth and tenderness.

Reiki becomes what you seek, what your soul seeks that you may not even be aware of yet. That is also why I teach Reiki privately. Each student, while receiving the traditional teachings with me, is also given space for healing while being trained. Even the Reiki energy during the classes creates a strong vibration that opens the door for healing. I have seen intense shifts while teaching and the students are quite thankful to have had the intimate and personal experience with only me present.

Reiki can be received as a one time session. Or, for long term effects, you can learn how to give yourself, and others, Reiki as a student of Reiki training. Imagine always being able to give yourself what you need, even if you don’t know exactly what that is on a conscious level. Reiki knows. Your soul knows. Together you get what you need.
