I know that during this time of COVID-19 many of us are struggling with fear, anxiety and worry. I have been thinking about some of my favorite resources, I have been using some of these that are helping me and my clients ease some of the anxiety.
I have noticed that somatic work is extremely valuable in easing some of the anxiety that is causing many of us to be tightly wound.
In my practice I am finding that Reiki, breath-work, yoga, body- mind centering practices, Quantum Energetix and sitting/walking meditations are all effective ways of helping people deal with anxiety right now. I am also finding that my clients are really benefiting from remote zoom sessions.
If you're wondering how that can be?
Well, energy is a moving force it can be felt anywhere at anytime! The 12 laws of the universe help us understand how the universe works. It states that the laws of physics explain the physical world; that is energy, light vibration and motion. Everything is connected to everything else, "as above, so below". So, all somatic/energy work can be felt across distance since the intention is to help us to ease our fear or anxiety. The elements of vibration and frequency is felt in the universe in perpetual circular motion so it is possible to receive reiki over distance of feel things change within your body even if the practitioner is not physically in the room with you. It all comes down to your receptivity and your will to want to heal your own body, since at the end of the day you are your own healer and the practitioner is there as a guide to help you notice what needs healing. We are often so caught up in our personalty's patterning that we can't always see that we are repeating the same patterns! If you would like to try out a session Click here to book a zoom session
