Do you ever find yourself staring off into space, not wanting to move or do anything?  Do you ever feel numb, emotionally blocked, or slightly agitated by everything, perhaps even a tinge of self-loathing?  Like you're frozen in a static state of disconnection and angst?  If so, you are NOT alone!

 
We may exist in an elevated state for days or weeks, then suddenly find ourselves knocked off-course, suddenly flailing in tumultuous seas, just trying to keep our head above water.  This feeling can easily turn into depression if we're not careful.
 
So what can you do to feel more connected?  Simple answer:  Go Within.
 
But how?  Here's some ways:
 
1). Meditation - Breathe deep, eyes closed, sit/lie still for 15 minutes, focus on your breath.  Allow thoughts to pass like clouds in the sky.  Witness, acknowledge, then let the thought go.  Return focus to your breath.  
 
2). Yoga or Dance around - (Kundalini Yoga!) Stretch, move, have fun.  Low-impact, but move your body.  Dance like no one's watching!  Except maybe your cat.
 
3). Chant/Hum - Repeat OM for 1-2 minutes and you will feel the difference.
 
4). Reiki Session (or self-Reiki* for those attuned) - Reiki is like meditation to an exponential degree, it solidly re-connects you.
 
5). Epsom/Sea Salt Baths - Add some Ylang-Ylang essential oil & a few Lepidolites for a deeper state.
 
Anytime we're feeling disconnected and melancholy, self-care is our highway to re-connection! Heart

Oddly enough, the majority of people alive on the planet today are breathing incorrectly; most tend to breathe from the upper chest (as you see in cartoons!), but this actually leads to hyperventilation when stressed.

What does one do?

Belly Breathe! 

  • Exhale completely, drawing your belly button into your spine
  • Inhale through your nose, expanding lower belly
  • Continue inhaling, expanding your middle abdomen
  • Continue inhaling, expanding your upper chest until your lungs are completely full
  • Hold
  • Exhale, breathe out from your upper lungs
  • Continue exhaling, breathe out from your middle abdomen
  • Continue exhaling, breathe out from your lower belly, pulling your belly button into your spine
  • Repeat

This is a fabulous way to bring yourself back into your body when you feel stressed/panicked.

There have been numerous cases of radical remissions for every single type of cancer, including those that are inoperable and/or Stage 4. 

How is this possible?

Their regimen included these 9 characteristics:

  1. Radically changing their diet
  2. Taking control of their health
  3. Following their intuition
  4. Using herbs & supplements
  5. Releasing suppressed emotions
  6. Increasing positive emotions
  7. Embracing social support
  8. Deepening their spiritual connection
  9. Having a strong reason for living

In Western medicine, you can expect the physical to be treated (#1,4), while the rest (#2,3,5,6,7,8,9) are mental/emotional/spiritual.  Reiki is an excellent source of mental/emotional/spiritual healing.  Should you or a loved one find yourself looking for more support, I invite you to experience the transformational potential of this holistic healing energy.
