Energy healing is an alternative therapy initiated when the body's energy circuits are restored to a natural state of balance, which triggers the body's own healing ability. Reiki is a traditional, non-invasive method of energy healing that everyone can safely use to aid in their body's innate healing ability. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. In fact, Reiki is practiced in many hospitals, medical settings, and in private practice all around the world. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person on an energetic level creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
While Reiki is energetic in nature, it is not a religion nor tied to any religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from our Divine Source, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religious Creator rather than having only an intellectual concept of it. While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
Wellness Coaching is the application of the principals and processes of professional life coaching to the goals of lifestyle improvement for higher levels of wellness. It is an alliance between a professional coach and a person who, through the benefit of that relationship, seeks lasting lifestyle behavioral change.
Clients hire coaches because they want to achieve something. They have a goal in mind and they believe it would be more reliably realized with the help of a coach. As discussed when we outlined the flow model of coaching, it often takes investigation to get to the real topic that the client wants to address. Initial formulations of the goal may be expressed concretely as an objective of losing a certain amount of weight, running a marathon, or sleeping peacefully through the night. As topics are explored, something else may emerge as the overarching purpose that clients want to realize. It may not be weight loss as much as it is feeling good about one’s body. Perhaps an initial goal of running a marathon evolves into an objective of sustaining a high level of wellness over time. Likewise, sleeping peacefully through the night may translate into simplifying life so that anxiety and stress are not one’s daily diet.
In other words, Wellness Coaching is a regular conversation between a coach and client that facilitates discovery, movement, change and growth. The process will assist you in discovering your passions, strengths, dreams, desires and values with the intention of designing a vision of your best self. The outcome will be a partnered journey down a path of achievements that are aligned with that vision.....a path to a happier, healthier lifestyle.
