How To Protect Yourself From Negativity

Over the past few months I’ve noticed an increase in clients complaining about being exposed to and effected by negative energies.

Protect yourself from negative energies, reiki of greater boston, waltham

Here are some common symptoms related to this issue:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling ‘off’
  • Shallow or Difficult Breathing
  • Sleeplessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • More susceptible to illness
  • Hypersensitivity to sensations (light, noise, touch, etc.)
  • Restlessness
  • Anger
  • Complaining often

More severe symptoms are:

  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Memory Loss
  • Word Mix Ups

The source of these negative vibes can be varied. You may not even know where they’re coming from but the most common sources are other people! Bosses and family members are top on the list. Friends and co-workers are next. It could also be a bad energy imprint left by someone or something who was in the space you live, work or drive in. Less common, we find that there is someone or an entity putting a curse around you and/or sending you negative thoughts/energy. Constant exposure to technology like phones and computers can contribute to a congested/negative sense of space also as can TV.

Whatever the source, there are time proven ways to ward off this negative energy. Here are some favorite, simple but effective methods to stay whole and centered amid these negative vibes as  well as to banish them:

  • Grounding

Spring is an easy season for most people to start grounding. It’s easy. Just increase your time outdoors! Hug trees, walk barefoot on grass or sand (any natural substance), walk in the woods, commune with some wild animals and talk with some boulders! See how you feel after a full dose of those activities.  Here are some other ways to ground including crystal healing, yoga poses and essential oil use.

  • Incense/Sage 

Saging your space is called Smudging. The most commonly used herb is white sage but you can use whatever is appealing to you. Palo Santo is also popular. Play around with some different incense fragrances and see what works best in making you feel clear, pure and happy.  My personal favorite is Sandalwood. In addition to treating your spaces I like to sage/incense my own body as well. Ahhh. Feels good.

  • Bells/Sounds

    Tingsha Tibetan Bells

Completing a sound clearing is quick and easy. Get a hold of some bells, a Tibetan Bowl or just a crystal and a tuning fork and make some noise all around your space and your body. Be gone all unwanted and unhelpful presences!

  • Crystals

Place Selenite Wands in each corner of an impure space.

Selenite, Smokey Quartz, Black Tourmaline, Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli are some favorites. When I know I’m going to be dealing with difficult people or people who push my buttons I load myself up with Black Tourmaline in the form of jewelry and also pop some loose crystals in my bra. Over the years this has kept me grounded and less reactive as well as protected so that my energy does not get sapped. I am most grateful for this stone’s protection.

  • Visualization

Sit or lie in a quiet place and take a few deep breaths relaxing your body and mind. Choose a color that you like and/or one that makes you feel safe and protected. It is common to use a clear white or cobalt blue but one of your preference will be best. I am partial to a deep forest green or rich brown for a protective shield! Begin now to see yourself surrounded by a circle or oval of your chosen color. Stay there inside this bubble for 5 minutes or so. You can make the shield hard or soft, moving or stationary. You may be moved to say a prayer or sing. Listen to your higher knowledge as to how to travel through and to end your visualization. Through your day whenever feeling low vibrational energies reignite that color bubble. You can find some guided protective visualizations on line if doing this on your own is too overwhelming.

  • Say No

Yes, just saying, ‘no’ to things/people that give you anxiety or push your buttons can help to keep your energy vibrations clear and high. Like everything else, this gets easier with practice so get started.

  • Plants

Some easy to grow and fairly inexpensive suggestions are: Rosemary, Aloe Vera and Peace Lily. These will all help clear your space and discourage low vibrations from sticking around.

  • Salt

Put a few bowls of sea salt around the space you’d like to clear, use some epsom salts in your bath and/or use a salt lamp.

  • High Frequency Music

You can find others on line.  Using  high frequency music  can  also  help  to  clear  your  space.   Here is one example.

  • Holy Water or Water Infused with Reiki Energy

Sprinkle or spritz it all over your space. I also like to spray it above and in front of me and walk through the mist. Ahh so cleansing and refreshing!

  • Reiki Healing

Come on in for a Reiki Healing. In our session I will use several of the above methods for clearing your physical and energetic body from sapping energies: Smudging, Bells, Essential Oils, Music, Crystals and of course Reiki itself. Recipients report feeling lighter, relaxed, chill, grounded, clear and focused.

One more tip before I leave you to get yourself and your spaces clean. You can carry out these techniques just as they are listed or, if you feel connected to a higher power like God, Angels, Saints, Spirits (maybe a loved one who has passed) or an overall energy source, you may ask for their assistance in your clearing efforts.  

Blessings.

Love Packages Sent From Earth: Crystals

crystal-vibration

Crystals are little love packages sent from the earth!  Each stone has its own vibrational blueprint depending on how, when and where they were formed. They hold millions of years of the earth’s history and since ancient times have been providing healing and guidance to our race. I’m sure you’ve seen crystals, maybe even been attracted to one or 2? These gems can help move you toward physical and emotional joy! Now that you know that, why not try working with a few? There are stones in various shapes, colors, sizes, textures and vibrational frequencies and they are all beautiful! Each one has healing properties for one or more physical or emotional ailments. Have headaches? Try amethyst. Back pain? Blue Kyanite. Sadness? Carnelian. Below are some commonly used crystals along with some of the situations they can assist with. Bear in mind however that the effects of each crystal can be different for each person.*

There are many more types of crystals but this will give you a nice little tool box for yourself to treat the most common of issues that visit.

How to Purchase and Choose Your Crystals

You can purchase these on line. A couple of my favorite sites are: healingcrystals.com & http://www.innervisioncrystals.net.

An even better way to purchase these gems is in person. In the Boston area I recommend:  7 Stars, Cambridge and Enchanted Fox, Medway. Also Kyle at Crystal Concentrics opens his crystal space in Arlington about once a month.

crystal-shoppeWhen you go crystal shopping plan to spend a little time there, ‘trying them on’. First stand in front of the display, close your  eyes and take some deep breaths. (Don’t worry about the staff thinking you’re crazy. In these type of stores they are used to this and are well versed in these methods of intuition.) Then open your eyes and see which 1 or 2 crystals are calling your attention.  Pick them up one at a time and hold them in your hand for a bit, see how they make you feel. Try a few of each of the crystals that got your attention and then purchase your favorite either based on the color, size, shape, or feeling it gives to you. Practice being open and  receptive and you will be drawn to a stone that will have meaning for you and will move you energetically toward whatever you need at this time.

How to Work with Your Crystals

Wear them!  Either put them in a little satchel in your pocket or tape them directly onto your skin. Women can wear them in their bras. For the latter make sure you’ve purchased smooth crystals.

Wear them as jewelry!  The 2 on-line sites and 3 store-front sites I mentioned above all sell crystal jewelry. Another fabulous crystal jewelry site is: Lunar Skye. This is a company based in MA and owner Trish, a Reiki Practitioner purchases quality gems, makes each piece herself and infuses them with Reiki energy.bracelet-protection

Sleep with them under your pillow.  Just that.  So simple.

Meditate with them. Just a quick 5 minute sit-down, holding the crystal(s). Tune into your breathing and then simply listen to what the crystal might be saying to you or how it might be making you feel. If you’re not used to tuning into your intuition or higher powers this may take some time. Keep at it. It’s worth it!

Create Crystal Grids.  A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals in a geometric shape. There are grid templates that you can purchase but I just like to make my own designs and set it with what ever intention I have at the time. Place a stone center piece and then play with symmetrical arrangements around that. You can also write your intention on piece of paper and place it under your center piece. Try it, it’s fun!

crystal-grid

Use a Wish Box. One final way that I often use crystals when I have a wish or goal I’m working on is to write that down on a small piece of paper and insert it into a decorative box. Then I choose a crystal that I feel would help me progress in these areas. Just trust your intuition on choosing the stones. At first it is uncomfortable but soon you will ‘just know’ which crystals are ‘right’.  Once chosen, I put a couple of that type of crystal in the box with the wish/goal and watch the magic happen.

Whatever you do, do not just throw your crystals in your purse or stick them in a drawer or on a night stand. You must cultivate a relationship with them for them to do the most intense work. Like a relationship – you must feed it or it will dwindle and maybe even die out.

How To Cleanse Your Crystals

sCleanse your Crystals at least once per week and more often if you use them daily. It’s also a good idea to clear your crystal when you first get them.washing-crystalsCrystals can gather energy from thoughts, touch, emotions, etc. so cleansing and recharging is important to keep your crystals working optimally.

The simplest ways to recharge your Crystals:

  • Run under cool, clean Water for 2-3 minutes (most crystals can be wet but not all so check before you drown them!)
  • Submerge in a bowl of Dry Rice overnight
  • Submerge in a bowl of Sea Salt overnight
  • Set out in the Moonlight overnight
  • Pass them through the Smoke of a sage or incense
  • Play them some high vibe meditational Music.

So if you choose to try using crystals to improve your health and wellbeing, let me know how it goes for you. As you begin to tune in to crystals and their vibrations you will become more aware of many additional vibrations around you. You will also likely want to learn more about Crystal Healing as you discover its benefits. There are many more ways to work with these Gems and many more gems available to assist you in your search for health and happiness. I will be happy to share my knowledge with you! Bring your crystals in when you come in for a Reiki or Life Coaching session and I will infuse them with some Reiki energy which will enhance their strength and healing power.

Enjoy your love packages!

When To Use Remote Reiki (aka Distance Reiki)

There are times and situations where conducting an in-person Reiki treatment is not possible. In most of these cases the client wanting to receive Reiki is physically too far away from the Reiki practitioner for them to get together. Another situation where Distance treatment is best is when the client is contagious with illness. These are the most common situations but there may be others where an absentee session is warranted. Distance healing is a convenient alternative when circumstances prohibit a regular, hands-on, treatment.

How It Works

You can request Reiki healing for someone else but ideally they will give their permission for treatment.  If the person is unable to comprehend such as when in a coma, etc. then it is up to the caregiver and Reiki practitioner to decide the best course of action. The goal would be to assist the client without going against his principles, religion, etc.

Communications

When Distance Reiki is requested I will need to know some basic information about the client:

  • What are the mental/emotional/spiritual issues are they wanting to work on?
  • What is their name?
  • What is a convenient time for them to receive the Reiki energy?
  • What address will they be at at that time?
  • An image of the client will be requested if we have not met.

This information can be exchanged via email, text, phone or Skype. At the time of communication the client can ask any question that they may have and I may have further questions of their health, etc. A brief communication update will also take place a day or 2 after the session, as well, for follow-up.

Client Actions

At the time of the healing treatment the client can continue doing whatever they had planned to be doing at the time of treatment. However, often clients tell me they get very sleepy at the time of treatment so if at all possible I like to schedule the sessions when people can be relaxing, resting or sleeping.

Metaphysics

Sending the Remote healing energies involves visualization and mental focus on the part of the Reiki Practitioner. Distance Reiki works according to a rule, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all made of energy and part of a larger whole.

There are a few different methods that Reiki Practitioners use in conducting Distance Treatments. I personally usually use a surrogate, which is basically a substitute or a stand in for the client. My surrogate comes in the form of a stuffed animal named Walter!

Reiki Surrogate for Reiki Distance Healing
Walter

I go through a regular in person treatment but share the energy through Walter who is embodying the client after the I invoke certain symbols that assist in directing energies and send healing Reiki energy across time and space. When these symbols are enacted a oneness between client and Reiki Practitioner is enhanced so that there is no duality, no distance to separate us..

Client Experience

In most cases clients report feeling a overall sense of calm and peace during and after their Distance healing. Other sensations reported are heat, cold, tingling, visions, premonitions, crying, etc. All reactions are perfectly acceptable and are simply the person’s way of processing the energy to clear their blockages in order to begin to prepare the body for healing. Physical, mental or spiritual issues may improve with one treatment or may need a series of sessions if it is a chronic condition.

Results

Distance clients report improvement on the physical, emotional or spiritual issue they are working on for example:

  • “The pain in my back has subsided.”
  • “My headache is gone.”
  • “My stress level is much lower.”
  • “I feel my sadness less deeply and less often.”
  • “My patience in finding my life’s purpose is stronger.”

In addition, most clients report an improvement in their sleeping patterns and an over all sense of well being.

I am aware that Reiki in general and Distance Reiki in particular are difficult concepts to buy into for most people. Please let me know if you have questions and I will do my best to answer. I recommend trying a session or two as the best way to comprehend it all and experience it directly.
