Energy Healing and Religion

0 ReikihandsAgain and again I’m asked by a lot of people: “Doesn’t energy healing interfere with religion?”

No, it doesn’t!!!

It brings you closer to your own religion and closer to your FAITH!

I am praying before every Reiki Session! I am praying for the healing energy coming through me; I am praying for the healing energy going to all the places in my client’s body where it’s needed; I am praying for my client’s acceptance of this healing energy and that the healing continues after the session and I am saying in my mind: “It’s your will that can make it happen not mine. But just say one word and we all could be healed! Once you stated that you are with those who are praying to you, so please be with us now in this room and send us Love and Peace!” Then I’m starting the session and I am open to what happens.

It was Reiki that taught me how to be faithful again!

I was raised roman-catholic and I can remember that after my first days in school as a 6-year-old my father would send me to confession because I would be such a sinful child. I said I wouldn’t know what I had done and he yelled at me that I should think about what I am doing to him and my mother with my bad behaviour and that if I wouldn’t confess the devil would get me and I would burn in hell. I had liked church until this moment and thought it would be something very safe where I could hide and that God would like me because I was praying a lot. But when I came closer to this dark little room completely on my own I felt scared like never before in my life. I was kneeling in darkness, not knowing where the priest’s voice was coming from and telling him that I didn’t obey at home and that I was very sorry for that. And he forgave me in the name of God when I would say 10 prayers to God and 10 prayers to Mother Mary.

From this moment everything changed and I hated religion lessons and I hated going to church on Sundays. My aversion became so strong that I fainted during the sermon and after it had happened several times was allowed to stay at home. When I was a teenager I used to observe the priest and I found him standing in front of a carousel at a fair watching the girls’ skirts lifting from the draft and smiling at their underwear and I felt disgusted! I felt that if he really is a messenger of God and is not allowed to have women he should stick to that and not disobey his orders because then it would be very unfair that a child is punished for not having listened to his/her parents. I refused going to church and with 18 I left church and was without any belief or faith. I felt very lonely, became depressed because of my parents splitting up and betraying each other while still living in the same house and staying married. With around 20 I remembered my mother telling me that she never wanted a child and I felt there was no place for me on this planet and I started having suicidal thoughts being treated with strong antidepressants.

With 30, after my father’s death, I experienced my first Reiki Session and for the first time after 24 years of mental turmoil I found peace within myself!

It was REIKI who made me believe again! It was REIKI that enabled me to re-connect to myself and re-connect to higher GUIDANCE! It was REIKI that showed me that I am not alone and that I am unconditionally loved!

Since I attuned a Deacon to Reiki I learned that this was not just my experience because she told me that she feels closer to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit than ever before, reassured that she is doing her best in forwarding God’s words and strengthened in her faith.

REIKI is a path to Love, Peace and Happiness!

CINDY – A metaphor for RE-CONNECTING with your INNER CHILD

Sometimes life gives you a broad hint about what you have to do next or what you have to focus on in your next Post or Workshop.

At the moment I’m meeting a lot of very unhappy people… People who don’t like themselves, who feel lonely and unloved all the time; people who try to distract themselves all the time and are addicted to video games, Facebook or TV; people who try to take care and give advice to others but are completely split off themselves and neither show responsibility for their own life nor even want to think about their own situation.

Wouldn’t it be worth to work on yourself and make a little personal change in your life even if it’s painful, as you have to deal with the past, to be rewarded with happiness, success, love, peacefulness, centeredness, contentment, abundance of possibilities….etc.?”

So this metaphor is especially for those of you who love their animal more than themselves and how this beautiful part of creation can help you heal your Inner Child.

Her name is “Cindy”. My husband gave her another name and called her “f… broken fuel pump” because we met her when our car broke down in Portage La Prairie.

She is a three-coloured cat, absolutely beautiful and unique – like ME and YOU.

Suddenly she was sitting on the line in the middle of the highway. I heard cars coming, jumped out of our truck and ran to her as fast as I could. Usually cats then run away when you approach them that fast and this was my first idea to get her away from the dangerous road. But she stayed and looked at me. I grabbed her, run back to the truck and held her on my lap and took a closer look at her.

She was dirty, her fur was lustreless and full of fleas, her ears black inside because of all the mites – just like a neglected Inner Child.

She didn’t purr. It seemed that she surrendered her life to me because she didn’t want to suffer anymore – just like an Inner Child longing to be healed so badly.

We waited for the towing truck, took her home and took her to the Vet next day. There she was not calm anymore; she behaved like a tiger in the jungle and didn’t want to be touched by others because of the fear of being hurt again – just like the injured Inner Child.

That’s a while ago now and Cindy has become a personality; she knows what she wants, she’s proud, she’s independent, she takes responsibility for herself, she reaches out for love and help when she needs it, she expresses her moods and she doesn’t care at all what other humans or cats may think about her, she’s authentic, she’s trusting, she enjoys life with all the dangers and adventures, she makes experiences and learns from them, she likes company and then she loves to be alone again – just like a healed and loved Inner Child – just like ME! What about YOU?

She has just climbed on my chest while I’m writing this post. She’s purring, very loud! We’re exchanging our love through our hearts, I touch her fur and she looks at me. Love is pouring out of her eyes…

Memories come up… about my childhood…. I remember how I always wanted to have a cat when I was a little girl. I remember that I could pet cats forever and forget the time about it. I remember how I was hiding a cat in my bedroom and spoiling her with cream and how my mom found out, throwing the cat out of the door and slapping my face. I remember how I couldn’t understand and cried for hours, longing for this unconditional love of a cat, longing for touching this soft fur and listen to the calming sound of purring…

I can see myself lying on the bed and crying and I can feel this pain again and I’m getting sad… My eyes fill with tears and I take my little Inner Child in my arms and say: “Don’t be sad anymore. I love you and I take care of you. Can you see Cindy? She’s our cat! Nobody can take her away from us. Let’s spoil her with our love and let us be spoiled by her love! Isn’t life wonderful?”

And my Inner Child is smiling, snuggling to my chest and buries her little finger in Cindy’s fur. Cindy is even purring louder… Now she’s getting the four-handed petting love…

Namaste!

Unconditional Love

Photography and Inner Child Work – one job leads to the other….

That's ME with about six in a cute little red cape that my mom made for me

I’m a passionate photographer and I can see the unique beauty of each person in his/her face.

I agree with John O’Donohue who says “The human face carries mystery and is the exposure point of the mystery of the individual life. It is where the private, inner world of a person protrudes into the anonymous world. While the rest of the body is covered, the face is naked. The vulnerability of this nakedness issues a profound invitation for understanding and passion. The human face is a meeting place of two unknowns: the infinity of the outer world and the unchartered, inner world to which each individual alone has access. This is the night world that lies behind the brightness of the visage.  The smile on a face is a surprise or illumination. when the smile crosses the face, it is as if the inner night of this hidden world brightens suddenly…..”

And the picture shows this mystery, beauty, brightness….. it shows the vulnerability… it shows a glimpse of a person’s own secret holy world. I prefer doing portraits to groups. Painting artists admit that it is exceptionally difficult to render the human face, especially the eyes and the mouth. A photo can show the truth in a glimpse of releasing the shutter of the camera. Whatever is shown on the picture cannot be made undone anymore…. We can read about cultures who wouldn’t let a photographer take a picture because they feel that they would lose a part of their soul. The eyes are said to be the windows of the soul. Many people try to avoid eye contact because they were hurt in the past – many people don’t like photos because they don’t want to look at themselves because they don’t like themselves.

That’s where Inner Child Work starts…..

“I don’t like myself on photos.” my friend said. “You don’t like yourself?” I reflected. “Oh, yes I do, but with photos it’s different…” she answered. “Why can’t you be alone? Do you like your own company?” I asked again. “Hmmmm, I know where you’re going now. You think, as I don’t want to be with myself and I don’t like to look at the photos in reality I’m not liking myself.” she concluded. “What’s going on inside of you, emotionally, when you look at a photo from your childhood?” I’m asking her. “I can’t do this. I’m getting sad and start crying. Then I hide it.” she answered. “What would happen if you would let yourself cry as long as you can and then look at the picture again? Do you want to try this for a homework and tell me next time what you found out? Even if it’s the most difficult thing to do, even if you would have to experience some emotional pain and suffering in your heart?” I asked her to write down what she was experiencing. “I saw a sad child, who was beaten a lot, punished, not loved at all. I experienced again how it felt to do every afford to be loved even if it meant to disown oneself…” I put a chair in front of her. “Can you see this sad little girl, sitting in this chair?” I asked “What is she wearing? How’s she sitting there? Can her little feet touch the ground? Is she holding on to the chair? Does she look at you, through you or turning away her head? Does she cry, look sad, try to smile at you? Can you sense something special like a special smell, taste? Are you feeling cold, warm? Is it getting darker or brighter around the both of you? What do you want to tell your Inner Child” My friend is in a kind of trance. She answers to my questions and then she starts to speak while she is shaking and crying; while I am starting to tap EFT to take away some of the stress. “I’m so sorry that you had to suffer so much …. and in addition to all that pain I left you alone …. I didn’t take responsibility for you … I wanted to run away from you …. I’m so sorry …. so sorry….” I’m putting my hands on her shoulders. “Can you feel your Inner Divine Guardian and Power? Can you take the little girl on your lap and hug her and stay with her like this for a moment? …. Tell me what you feel?” My friend is laughing and crying “I feel so peaceful once of a sudden and soooo fullllll of LOVE. I’ve never ever felt like that before… everything seems to be so right and good and true…” We both take a deep breath. “Can you feel how your love melts your hearts together? What would you like to give her as a gift? What is she giving to you?” My friend smiles “I gave her a daisy. She always love them and I still do. She gave me a butterfly to free myself from the burden I was carrying with me for such a long time. Thank you Monika, that was awesome. That was worth it all….” On our next shopping trip I took some photos. When she looked at them, she said: “Wow, I guess I didn’t know that I look that good. Shouldn’t be that hard to find a good man…” and we both laughed and laughed…..

When I started my spiritual journey my Reiki Master did a lot of Inner Child Work. Later on my instructor for Kinesiology, Systems Constellation, NLP and Trance Therapy did a lot of Guided Imagery and Trances with our group on healing our Inner Child and our relationship to our parents. And I agree with my friend it’s definitely worth it! It brings Happiness, Fulfillment, Contentment and Joy to Life!

Energy Healing Place – NOW OPEN!!!

My dream came true, the dream about offering healing in a safe, private and very peaceful and quiet natural environment. The dream about offering a warm welcoming atmosphere to my clients who are much more than that: unique wonderful people who deserve to be spoiled for their courage to try something new and unknown in order to heal, learn and grow.

My promise is that I never stop studying energy healing techniques to offer up to date treatments that are a combination of Reiki, Healing, Touch, Quantum Touch and Kinesiology.

Shortly I was asked what I’m doing to be that balanced and bright.

Well, I’m working on my body-mind an soul balance, taking my time for self-care every day (meditations and energy healing visualizations). I also have my ups and downs like anybody else. But there’s a power driving me forward and energizing me every day and that’s my intention to help, teach and guide and my passion for this wonderful art of healing. Nothing is as rewarding for me as my clients’ smiles and their stories about their successes regarding health and life journey.

What’s energy healing about? I was asked last week.

I would like to quote Andy Baggott who calls himself a follower of the Celtic path of life: “I believe it is the destiny of everyone to be happy, healthy and fullfilled if they choose to seek it. If you’re following your soul purpose, you will naturally be happy, healthy and fullfilled. If you seek your own happiness, health and fulfilment, you will naturally seeking your destiny. I believe that the answers to all questions and the cures to all illness lie withing the mind of each individual. You have the power within to find the answers you seek and, with all the help and guidance that creation can offer, there’s no limit to what you can achieve. If you can imagine something, you can make it reality.”

So what do I need to heal? I was asked next.

You just need to be open and have faith in a higher being (God, Creator, Jehova, Allah, Wakan Tankan…..) and let the universal energy that I’m offering you help and guide you in order for you to become aware of yourself (your thoughts, emotions, decisions, patterns, (re)actions etc.) and then get the important insights for positive change and finally bring peace and happiness into your life.

7-YEAR CYCLE AND WOMEN IN THEIR 40IES

 

In all the ancient cultures you can hear and read about the SEVEN-YEAR-CYCLE in a human being’s life. Some interprete it as Chakra cycle, others say it’s about the holy number “7”. I believe in this cycle and I share the following insights with a lot of spiritual energy workers:

  • From birth to seven years you’re learning to live and to SURVIVE.
  • From eight to fourteen years you’re learning what works and what doesn’t work from your parents and your own experiences.
  • Fifteen to twenty-one years you’re testing your concepts and ideas and develop your beliefs (what’s true for yourself).
  • Twenty-two to twenty-eight years you’re improving your ways of being, break the taught patterns or remain loyal to it.
  • Twenty-nine to thirty-five years you’re questionning your concepts about yourself, your life and your integrity (stick to your principles).
  • Thirty-six to forty-two is the HEALING CYCLE: as you became aware of your patterns of the past and your subconscious beliefs come to life, you now can decide what you will carry forward and what you will not. You’re definetely starting on your spiritual journey and you’re noticing that surrounding yourself with positive people is more important than any materialistic things.

Look in your eyes and smile at yourself!

  Look in your eyes and smile at yourself!
 Iyanla Vanzant describe women in their 40ies in a most beautiful way:

“There’s something magical that occurs when a woman turns forty. She becomes more attractive in a sensual and seductive way. She becomes more comfortable with her body and learns how to maneuver it better. At forty, a woman’s eyes begin to sparkle. Not with lust or exitement, but with wisdom. She has seen some things, done some things, and learned some things that show through her eyes and become clear. A FORTY-YEAR-OLD WOMAN FINDS HER VOICE, GETS HER VISION AND HER FOOTING. At forty you find out that people only love you the way you want to be loved, when you know how to LOVE YOURSELF and YOUR INNER CHILD!”

In my Chakra Workshop you learn a lot about changing beliefs, how much our childhood experiences still influence our patterns and behaviours and what mirror-work can do for loving, accepting and forgiving ourselves in order to get peace, happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world.
