The word Reiki means ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern systems of medicine have always recognised and worked with this energy. It has various names but free flow of this energy is believed to be the basis of well-being. Reiki involves the drawing of energy through the practitioner to the client. Reiki is a non-invasive, non-diagnostic, non-interventionist and non-manipulative holistic therapy. It is practiced through light or no touch and no substances are ingested. Reiki does not address any disease or symptom directly and does not interfere with medical treatment. Illness is often a time of great stress. Reiki can help by encouraging a sense of emotional well-being. Reiki is used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly.
WHAT HAPPEN DURING THE TREATMENT
When Karen gives a treatment of Reiki she prefers to work in the clients Aura (their own energy field). If that sounds a little complicated think when you are concentrating on something you are doing and then suddenly be conscious of somebody behind you before you have even heard or seen them. This person has connected with your energy field with their own. Some people can be very sensitive and notice when their energy field connects with another.
Karen therefore works with her hands above the clients body, non-intusively, whilst the client lies down on the treatment couch, fully clothed. She uses her intuition to guide her hands and as she says 'lets her hands do the walking'. As the energy flows most people feel warmth, heat or tingling from where the practitioner is holdiing her hands.
Sometimes people have an emotional release, as emotional turmoil is brought to the surface and dissipated. Karen is a very strong believer that the holding in of emotions effects the physical body in many ways. The emotion release is all part of the Reiki Healing. This healing process is a very personal one as no two people respond in the same way.
AUSTRALIAN BUSH FLOWER ESSENCES
Flower Remedies are not new. The Australian Aboriginals have always used flowers to heal the emotions, as did the Ancient Egyptians. There has also been a very long tradition of use of Flower Essences in India, Asia and South America and they were also very popular in Europe in the Middle Ages.
Australia has the world's oldest and highest number of flowering plants exhibiting tremendous beauty and strength. Also Australia is relatively unpolluted and metaphysically has a very wise, old energy.
The Bush Remedies not only help to give clarity to one's life but also the courage, strength and commitment to follow and pursue one's goals and dreams. They help to develop a higher level of intuition, self esteem, spirituality, creativity and fun. The more the Essences are used, the more one is likely to experience greater awareness and happiness in one's life. Then everyone benefits....the individual, society and the planet.
The effect of these Essences is similar to that of meditation in that they enable the person to access the wisdom of their Higher Self. This releases negative beliefs held in the subconscious mind and allows the positive virtues of the Higher Self - love, joy, faith, courage etc. to flood their being. When this happens the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.
BUSH FLOWER REMEDY TREATMENT
Karen uses her intuition and dowsing techniques as well as The Australian Bush Flower Essence Insight Cards to help choose the right essences for you. Karen will complete a full detailed Medical History from you and discuss with you the problems that have arisen. She will ask you to choose three cards which would address the problem you have. That is either just picking a card randomly or looking at each flower picture and seeing what flower you are drawn to. Once Karen has formulated all the information together she will make an Essence Bottle up for you for you to take in either drop form (orally) or in a spray bottle. The essences can be made either in an Alcohol form (used for preserving the essence) or water based (the shelf life will be shorter). In most cases the oral drops will be taken of a two week period or until all the bottle is finished. After such time a re-evaluation is made as to whether the Flower Essences need re-adjusting or that no more essences are required as full healing has been fulfilled
The essences are safe for Adults and Children which help heal not just on the physical level but from where deep seated issues may lie. The Essences allow the release of negative beliefs held in the subconscious mind and in the energy system. As the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.
A Flower Essence consultation can be face-to-face with Karen, OR by phone or e-mail.
