Reiki

Reiki

Reiki is a system of Energy Therapy where universal life force energy is channelled through the practitioner and into the client. This energy is used in the body where it is most needed. The body is smart and it knows where the energy needs to flow, it knows where the imbalances and blockages lie. Studies have shown that Reiki is very useful for increasing the effectiveness of other therapies and has specifically been shown to improve outcomes with cancer patients. A Reiki session is a very relaxing experience. Some people describe it as meditative and find they are somehow able to ‘turn off their brain’ when they thought that wasn’t possible. Everyone’s experience is as unique as they are and the sessions are guided by that persons needs at that moment. Typically energy is channelled into the chakras or power centres of the body, into the joints, and into the auric field. Many people notice new perspectives, pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, increased spiritual and self awareness, and an overall sense of peace and clarity after a session. Since we know that relaxation in the body results in better function of the bodies own systems, we can see how Reiki would be beneficial for an endless list of ailments and complaints.

Jessica Edgar

Jessica became interested in Energy healing and therapy in 2016 and was called to receive her first Reiki Attunement in early 2017 to incorporate into her work as a doula and birthkeeper. This Attunement changed everything for her. She started to heal wounds that had been open her whole life, and eventually even wounds from past lives. Everything became more clear, she started to feel more connected to herself, the earth, and her experience. When she received her second Attunement not too long after, and she began giving Reiki (universal life force energy) to others, she noticed the huge impact this work had on people and she felt instantly aligned. Her Reiki practice is based in intuition, it is based on each individual’s needs. No two sessions are alike. Jessica incorporates her Aromatherapy training by using high quality essential oils when appropriate, as well as crystals, sound, movement, visualization, and discussion. She meets each client where they are at and provides the space for their higher selves to do the work. She believes every ‘problem’ we encounter, whether it is physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual, has an energetic component that can be addressed with Reiki. Chronic pain and illness, acute pain and illnesses, depression and anxiety, physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion, constant overwhelming emotions, confusion, lack of direction or self-love, unhealthy relationships; no grief in your life, big or small, is off limits. Jessica believes that every person has the ability and right to be their best selves and she is honoured to be a part of their journeys.

FOOD FACT FRIDAY🍎🥑🥕
__

Legumes are a class of vegetables that includes beans, lentils, and peas. Eating legumes gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to protein and vegetable benefits!
__

They are packed with protein, iron, zinc, things that you’d expect from other protein-rich foods like meat, but also are packed with things you typically only find in the vegetable kingdom like fiber, folate, and potassium.
__

Bonus points for being naturally low in saturated fat and sodium, having one of the lowest glycemic index and NO cholesterol!
__

One recent study found that eating just a cup of beans, chickpeas, or lentils each day for three months could slow a person’s resting heart rate as much as spending 250 hours on a treadmill! A major factor in reducing the risk of dying prematurely! 😳
