"It is good, I think, for our hearts, our minds, our imaginations, to be stretched; but body, nerve, endurance and life-span are not as elastic." Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote those words in 1955. A time when we were just beginning to suspect the finer mysteries of the quantum world and no one questioned the separation of mind from the body. Well things have changed. We now know humans have a subtle energy field and this field cannot be separated from the functioning of the mind-body. But that doesn't make Anne Morrow Lindbergh's quote out-dated. In fact, it's more poignant than ever. Our modern world constantly stretches our hearts, minds and imaginations. If you watch the news, hold down a job or live with children you're stretched alright - maybe even to the point of snapping! This stretching takes a toll on the physical body - we call it stress. Stress impairs your immune system and an impaired immune system makes you more susceptible to illness and injury.
So how do you reduce stress? First, turn off the news. Trust me - you won't miss anything important. (If anything really big happens people will talk about it. Listen if you want.) You probably can't afford to quit your job, and children stay at home into their 30's these days. So what can you do?
Try Reiki! It balances your subtle energy field and promotes deep relaxation. This level of relaxation allows your body to do what it does best - heal itself - and creates vitality and wellness at the physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Go ahead - give Reiki a try. All you can lose is your stress.
