Sacral Chakra, Reiki of Greater Boston, Chakra Balancing

The treatments listed below will help you begin to release shame and guilt and  be able to come more fully present in your body resulting in a freer, more authentic existence.

I am the target text.

Treatments

Balancing the Sacral Chakra allows us to begin to release fear, guilt and shame that have either been programmed into our lives or learned some other way. In balancing this Chakra we begin to feel free to be human at the most basic level, physically, sensually, creatively, passionately and sexually.

Swivel Those Hips. Let Loose!

Yoga Postures:

  • Kapotasana (Pigeon)
  • Supta Bahdda Konasana (Reclining Butterfly)
  • Dahnurasana (Bow)
  • Bhujangasana (Cobra)
  • Dance- Swivel Hips, Move to the music

If you’re not familiar with these poses you can look them up on-line or schedule a Yoga session and we can play with all of these!

Crystals:

  • Carnelian
  • Orange Kyanite
  • Sun Stone
  • Tiger’s Eye
  • Amber

Carry one or more of these stones with you when you’re feeling closed down. They will help open you up to creativity, life and feeling.

Reiki:

To balance Chakras with Reiki we will do an assessment of each of the 7 major chakras by dowsing with a pendulum. Next, crystals will be tested for compatibility with your body and placed at specific points on your body/or table and a guided meditation and Reiki session will ensue.  A Chakra Balancing session takes about 75 minutes. A specific session working on 1 specific Chakra can take place in the same amount of time and will also include practicing Yoga Poses and chants. You can make your appointment here. After your session you will be given some ‘homework’ to maintain the chakras that were shown to be out of balance.

Chanting: VAM

Click link above to hear this chanting. You can simply listen or join in on the chant for a more intense vibrational healing. I like to lie down and let the sounds wash over me. It’s an hour long recording but you don’t need to listen to the whole thing. Just see how it feels for you. I’d give it at least 10 minutes.

Aromatherapy:

Try one of these fragrances in the form of essential oils (use in a diffuser or rub the oils directly on your skin) or incense (burn) when trying to open yourself up to more feeling, creativity and acceptance.

Clary Sage
Jasmine
Rose
Sandalwood
Ylang-Ylang

Essential Oils can be purchased at Whole Foods or on-line. Be sure they are Pure essential oils.

Meditation & Breathwork:

Left nostril breathing called Ida Nadi breathing will help to open up the second chakra as it brings forth moon (ruler of the tides, oceans and all the water in our bodies) energy. Before you start you may want to blow your nose to make it as clear as possible. Begin in a comfortable seated position with your back erect, head in line with your spine. Close your eyes or at least soften their gaze and then close off your right nostril with the first two fingers of your right hand. Now inhale and exhale through the left nostril only trying your best to take full, complete inhales filling the whole chest cavity and even up to your throat up with breath. On the exhale release all the stale breath full of toxins by squeezing the tummy muscles to press out all the air. Repeat until you feel ready to stop.

Swirling, Sacral Energy

Try this simple Sacral Meditation to aide in balancing your 2nd chakra. Lie down on your back. Don’t you like this already?! Close your eyes and allow your body to become soft and heavy. Now on your next inhale imagine a vibrant orange light entering your lower abdomen and permeating through to your lower back. Your whole Sacral area is full of swirling, energizing orange light/energy. Simply notice how it feels to you. When you feel done, on an exhale, shrink the light down to dot size and then let it finally disappear.

Play:

Suck up all the sweetness and juiciness of life! This is the crux of the Sacral Chakra. Find and engage in activities that bring you joy! Is there an activity you loved to do in your childhood that you have not engaged in as an adult? Here are some activities people (including myself) find helpful in getting back in touch with that free spirit most of us embodied as a child:

Art/Crafts: Drawing, coloring, painting, decoupage, making a shadow box, make pot holders, make jewelry

Physical Activity: Dancing, joining an adult sports team – hockey, Climb a Tree (my favorite!) soccer, volleyball,  Skipping, Play Hop-Scotch, Jump Rope, Ride Bikes, Swing on a swing, etc.

Games/Toys: Puzzles, Dolls, Legos, Lincoln Logs

Music: Sing, play an instrument (even just bang on some pots)

None of these things have to be done to look a certain way. Simply do them for fun! Try to get fully absorbed with the activity, getting lost in the joy of it. Feel free and flowy!

Color Therapy:

Orange! A perfect color for fall and Halloween. Wear more orange, eat orange foods (oranges, carrots, sweet potatoes), bring some orange into your decor: some throw pillows, candles,blankets, wall hangings.

Mantra:

Sacral chakra Mantra, reiki of greater boston, waltham

You can repeat this statement (mantra) a few times before you get up and before you go to bed, saying each word slowly and meaningfully. As you work with this or any mantra you may find your inner knowing wanting to change some of the words to make it more resonant for you. Go with that!

Some Causes of Sacral Imbalance 

  • Coldness
  • Denial of child’s feelings
  • Emotional abuse
  • Emotional manipulation
  • Familial alcoholism
  • Incest 
  • Lack of rules/boundaries
  • Neglect

Reiki Of Greater Boston Heals The Mind, Body and Spirit Through A Combination Of Healing Methods 

Reiki of Greater Boston featured in Mass Realty Magazine

By Paul Rowe  (Mass Realty Magazine) 

The healing work practiced at Reiki Of Greater Boston in Waltham, Massachusetts is geared towards activating the innate power in every individual that has been sidetracked, weakened, or paralyzed from exposure to the toxic forces in our world. Through the healing power of Reiki, the body is moved toward its original state of health, the mind directed towards peace and the heart guided toward its true purpose.

Reiki is a non-religious based energy healing treatment that promotes healing, stress reduction, and relaxation. Through the gentle placement of the practitioner’s hands on the client’s fully clothed body, universal healing energy called Reiki is channeled to the client. This positive energy facilitates conditions in the body that allow healing to occur.

Throughout our daily lives, we are not included on our list of priorities. Grocery shopping, working long hours, and providing for others puts us all continually out of balance, disrupting the forces inside us, causing illness, unrest, and despair. To get health back on track we must unearth the truth of our purpose: the truth of who we are. At Reiki Of Greater Boston, Reiki therapist Lisa Hassett performs energy work that assists Boston residents in exposing the lies we live that contribute to our mental and physical illnesses. For countless people, Reiki’s focus on stress reduction is the first step on the road to recovery.

Conditions like Sadness/Depression, Stress, Anger, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, and other Auto-Immune disorders are particularly responsive to this treatment in combination with traditional treatments. Luckily for folks in the Boston area, Lisa Hassett is sharing the healing power of Reiki with people suffering from these debilitating conditions.

“Most of my clients, both adults and children, do present some type of stress that is affecting their lives in some negative way such as insomnia, lack of concentration, or eating imbalance. Lately, this all seems to be magnified by the political state of our country and our fast-paced way of life, especially here in Boston and the Northeast,” Hassett said. “Reiki puts your physical and energetic body back into alignment so that you can react to external stimuli in a more balanced manner.”

However, Hassett admits that Reiki is not a “silver bullet.” Just as it takes time to enter these states of stress, it takes time and energy to escape them. Although Reiki works independently to facilitate mental and physical healing, it works best when clients choose to be active in their path to healing and participate in the conjunctive services offered by Hassett: breath work, meditation, crystal healing, and life coaching.

Hassett also provides clients with helpful homework such as books to consider reading, journaling assignments, and practicing the breathing, meditation, and yoga techniques she introduced to them. For Hassett, these techniques must simply be put into practice to experience their full benefits.

“Reiki and the other healing modalities I use are difficult to put accurately into words,” Hassett said. “Direct experience provides the best way to know how these methods will enlighten your body, mind, and spirit.”

Hassett herself has experienced firsthand the rich benefits of yoga, focused breathing, and Reiki. After suffering from a debilitating illness in the late 90s, when no Western medicine could help her, she turned to these methods. This restorative combination pulled Hassett out of death’s grip. Since then, Hassett has dedicated her life to helping her fellow Earthlings find relief from physical and emotional illness.

“Here I am,” Hassett said. “I’m so happy to help.”

Lisa Hassett, Reiki of Greater Boston

June 12, 2017

Hello friends. Here’s a little interview I did recently where you will learn a little bit about my Healing business and what brought me here. Apologies to those who’ve already seen it on Social!

Meet Lisa Hassett of Reiki of Greater Boston in Waltham

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Hassett.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I attribute Reiki & Yoga to saving my life when many years ago I began having MS like symptoms that no Dr. could seem to diagnose or treat. After suffering for 2 years without answers I decided to take things into my own hands and began a serious regime of Reiki Healing and Yoga. Because of the miraculous results I had with these methods,
I began teaching Yoga in 2001 and practicing Reiki in 2004. Continuing to offer both healing practices today along with Life Coaching, Energy Clearing and Crystal Healing allows me to access remedies for depression, stress, insomnia, autoimmune issues, etc. I also provide Reiki for Cancer patients in hospitals where side effects of medications are lessened and Reiki relaxation puts the body in a better state for healing itself.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Once you find your Life’s Purpose even struggles and bumpy roads seem easier and do not deter you from your path. Overall things have been smooth. Paying attention to

er power’s signs leads you in the right direction once you let go of the ego’s ideas of what things ‘should be like’. These are some of the things we work toward at Reiki of Greater Boston.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Reiki of Greater Boston – what should we know?
Clients usually start out with either a Reiki Healing or Yoga session and from there, depending on their needs we may add other services: Crystal Healing, Life Coaching, Energy Clearing, Meditation, Breath Work. A combination of these methods bring people to balance & health Spiritually, Emotionally and Physically. I guess you could say I specialize in overall health with a strong emphasis on emotional and spiritual.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Both my Reiki teachers have been superb in teaching me the basics and guiding me to the truth. My husband of 34 years deserves lots of props for supporting me in many ways especially when I work nights, days and weekends. I think that’s it because I’m very much an introvert so I enjoy working alone without bosses and co-workers, etc.

Pricing:

  • Fees for all 1 hour services range from $60.00-$100.00

Easy and Natural Ways To Beat The Winter Blues

How to beat the winter blues. Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham ,MA

How to beat the winter blues. Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham ,MA

Can you stand on your head or do a handstand?! If so do this daily for at least 3 minutes, or more if possible. This, for me has been the most effective method for banishing the blues.

 

 

 

 

 

Try using a wall for support on your back.
If these poses are not accessible to you then try a modified inversion such as Downward Dog or Forward Fold.

The Breath of Joy will also give you an energy boost.

Eat more fruits and veggies.

The sun may not feel warm in winter’s colder climates but it will provide you with the needed vitamin D. Get outside! You may also want to addVitamin D supplements.

Eat more fatty fish like Salmon, Lake Trout, Mackerel. If you are not a fish eater simply take a fish oil supplement.

Listen to music that makes you happy! Here’s one of my favorites. Maybe even dance to the beat!

Get some exercise every day. You don’t need to make it into a big thing – simply take a walk or do a few jumping jacks. Anything! Just Move! If you do belong to a gym then use it.

Have a few Reiki sessions to get your energy balanced and your body in the best state to start healing itself.

Try wearing some joy making crystals like Carnelian, Lithium Quartz, Bloodstone, Rose Quartz.

If these methods do not make a difference in your mood please do not hesitate to call a professional! You are not alone in sadness/depression and it is nothing to be ashamed about. You cannot achieve your purpose on earth when you live in sadness so help the world out and get yourself in peak emotional condition.

We Are All Warriors

We are all Warriors we just have different fields of battle and different ‘enemies’. My personal fights are not nearly as selfless as those of our Veterans and I am most grateful for their service. I am not comparing the plights of the ordinary citizen to those of the Military. I am merely saying we are all battling something and we can learn to cope more valiantly by practicing Yoga. It’s true! Check it out.

Warrior Yoga at Reiki of Greater Boston

Warrior Yoga

In yoga, all postures can develop qualities of the warrior; the Physical Warrior: Physical Strength, Endurance, Honor, Courage, Discipline, And the Spiritual Warrior: Release, Open-heartedness, Balance, Unconditional Love, Peace.

There are a series of poses specifically called ‘Warrior’ or Virabhadrasana and offer all manner of variations. The 3 basic Warrior poses are shown above.

In Indian lore Virabhadra was a fierce warrior who had a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, and a thousand feet, wielding a thousand clubs! Yikes! I’m scared.

Warrior Yoga at Reiki of Greater Boston, Waltham

Warrior Poses are not meant to promote violence but to bring strength and power into our bodies, minds and lives and to help us learn to battle ignorance and ego.

Here are some gems you might glean from these poses:

  • Mindfulness/Awareness
  • Increase of the body-mind connection
  • Space perception
  • Finding ease within effort
  • Release unneeded tensions in body/mind/life
  • Stay present and focused during challenges
  • Openness of the heart
  • Courage
  • Endurance
  • Finding peace in even uncomfortable moments
  • Resist Boredom through refocus and breath
  • Balance and stability
