A Personal Testimonial
As a rule, I resist the use of Reiki to address specific conditions. I believe energy is omnicient and omnipotent and will go where it needs to go and do what it needs to do without my direction. I also know without a doubt that there is no single weight loss "program" that is right for everyone. While I still hold firmly to these beliefs, I have claimed 2011 as a year of releasing limitations and boundaries and embracing all possibilities for the highest and most healing good of my clients and myself.
A recent phone call from one of my Reiki II graduates prompted me to try Reiki for weight loss. She used a method we reviewed in class, but that I never personally attempted. She lost 20 pounds in a couple weeks (and she looks great) without changing her eating habits or exercising! With results like that, I had to try it. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Reiki is energy and energy transforms matter. Just as it dissipates negativity and creates the free and open flow of positive energy, Reiki works to transform matter into energy ... even fat matter. The 'how' is left to the universe.
Without planning or counting calories or subscribing to a 'diet,' here's how Weight Loss Reiki worked for me.
On January 5, I began a morning ritual of channeling Reiki energy to myself using the emotional healing symbol. I used a clear and simple affirmation; a modified version of one provided by Reiki Master Teacher Peggy Jentoft, "I release excess physical matter (fat) from my body and invite vibrant, life affirming light (energy) to assume its place."
The following week I heard India Holloway, a colon hydrotherapist, on the radio and was compelled to attend her introductory talk. I don't mean I made a decision to attend, I mean I was compelled. I moved client appointments, arranged a sitter and kidnapped my significant other on a week night to hear this woman speak. There was no stopping me.
After hearing India speak, I scheduled an appointment with her on January 17, 2011 at the Life Well Institute in Culver City, CA. I lost two pounds during the procedure.
Ever the sharing spirit, India offers clients a 10% off coupon for a detox pack from Dr. Schulze's American Botanical Pharmacy in Marina del Rey, CA. I headed straight over to purchase my very reasonably priced 5-Day Bowel Detox pack. Mind you, I had no plans to detox immediately after a colonics. This was the universe responding to my requests. Dr. Schulze's is, hands down, the easiest, most forgiving, most accommodating bowel detox program ever! It worked without restrictive dietary demands and without chaining me to the bathroom. I tell you people, the experience was drama free!
I last weighed myself on January 23, 2011 and had lost 7 lbs. Because I am more focused on wellness than weight, I have decided not to weigh myself again until February 23rd, 2011.
Using Reiki and an intent to release excess weight, my vibrational frequency shifted into alignment with:
- dietary modifications that support healthy living and weight loss
- a desire to exercise daily at a level that is comfortable for me
- therapies and systems that support healthy living and weight loss, and that fit into my life with little effort
- resuming a vegetarian lifestyle after nearly 15 years
- liberation from food addictions like flour and processed sugar
