Taking part in Reiki can increase your feelings

What is Reiki and How can it Heighten Your Self-Development?

Reiki-for-Body-and-Mind-2

An integral aspect of the human experience is striving to develop and improve yourself however you can. Although you may have heard of Reiki, you might not realize how you can raise your own level of development upon undergoing Reiki treatments.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient art of healing first practiced in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. The practice eventually spread to the western world and morphed into what is known as “Western Reiki” techniques.

Here are some informative facts about Reiki:

  1. Western Reiki includes 5-7 hand positions used by Reiki practitioners. These hand positions are used to affect the recipient’s “chakras” or “meridians,” locations of theoretical sacred energy reserves found throughout the body’s surface.
  • The practitioner poses his hands in the hand positions near where the body’s energies are regulated to promote wellness and healing.
  1. The Reiki practitioner might place his hands lightly on the body at the chakra points. He might look at the chakra point or even gently massage the chakra location in hopes of transferring energy to the recipient. Light tapping near the meridians or the practitioner blowing out air from the mouth might also be part of a Reiki treatment.
  2. Some Reiki practitioners do not touch the recipient. Instead, they place their hands a few centimeters above the body’s surface to re-position the chakras’ energy.
  3. The Reiki practitioner believes he is providing energy called, “ki,” through his palms. This is to balance the receiver’s body energies.
  4. Although Reiki is an ancient practice, it isn’t supported by science. Research on Reiki has consistently come up with no real evidence of the “life force,” or ki, or how it can impact the individual, positively or otherwise.

How Does Reiki Heighten Self-Development?

Because Reiki isn’t scientifically proven, you might be wondering how it could actually help you in your quest for deepened self-development.

Consider these points:

  1. Undergoing Reiki allows you to relax. During Reiki you’re laying down quietly, usually on a masseuse’s table. You’ll likely be relaxed throughout the process, lessening stress.
  2. Taking part in Reiki is a unique experience. There are few other experiences that are similar to having Reiki done. In a sense, it will expand your mind to take part in Reiki—it’s a new and different experience. Reiki might even peak your interest in the healing arts.
  3. Suggestion is powerful. When Reiki practitioners deliver their treatment methods, they’ll likely make certain suggestions about balancing your chakras and meridians. Because you’ll be so relaxed at the time, it’s possible that you’ll take in the suggestions and do what’s necessary to feel better. You might become more open to acting on helpful suggestions.
  4. Taking part in Reiki can increase your feelings of well-being. Although the effects of Reiki haven’t been proven, when you do anything to feel better, it can be helpful because you’re giving attention to the troubling issue. In this case, undergoing Reiki may be a means to an end.

Reiki is a fascinating healing art that could peak your interest and heighten your self-improvement. There are times in life when it’s refreshing to try something new, different, and a bit unusual. You’ll relax, have a unique experience, and increase your well-being.

Open your mind to this unique healing art form that just might be your cup of tea for strengthened health and increased self-development.

Simple Ways to Overcome Boredom

Sculpture the mind the same way you want to sculpture your body.
It’s almost the same as sculpturing a statue for rock it would take at least 16 months
So starts sculpturing your mind read

Everyone at one time or another has experienced some degree of boredom. Children are usually the quickest to say “I’m bored,” but as adults, we experience our share, too.

Don’t you sometimes wonder why you feel bored? It may be a feeling of laziness, exhaustion, or even a lack of mental stimulation.

Whatever the case may be, we all want to keep our mind and body at its peak. We also want to be an active player in our own lives. When we’re feeling bored, neither of these needs is being met.

However, with a bit of creativity, there’s no reason why you ever need to experience boredom!

Here are some simple suggestions to help you conquer boredom and liven things up:

Read. This sounds rather obvious, doesn’t it? Well, it is! But it’s often the simplest ideas that are the most powerful.

Reading is a wonderful activity for the mind that can transport you to another time, place or situation. With so many genres to choose from, reading can be most interesting and even intoxicating.

Cultivate your mind. Boredom is something we allow and hold control over. By actively using our mind, boredom won’t be a concern again. Try expanding and cultivating your mind by taking a day trip to a museum, going to an art exhibit, or seeing a play.

If you’ve never been an avid reader, it’s possible that you simply haven’t found the right book. Experiment until you find the one that gets you hooked. You can also explore audiobooks and podcasts to keep your mind busy.

No one enjoys being bored, but thankfully there are countless ways to overcome boredom and get your mind and body active again. Use these tips to get you started, and enjoy a myriad of wonderful benefits in the process

Create the time to read. It might be 20 minutes before bed or during your lunch hour. We feel like we don’t have the time because we over-schedule our lives, watch too much TV, and spend too much time surfing the Internet.

Let go of some of that stuff and read instead. Make reading a habit by doing it regularly. When you’re reading, only read. This isn’t a time for one eye on the book and the other eye on the television set. If you’re going to get the most out of it, then really commit to what you’re doing.

Just read during your reading time. Avoid thinking that you must finish every book you start. We have to suffer through some things in our lives that are less than exciting, but your books don’t have to be one of those things

How Dark Is Your Personality

How Dark Is Your Personality
How ~Evil~ Are Youthe dark triad traits

Do you have a ruthless streak? Psychologists believe the “dark triad” of personality – Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy – might help you succeed in life. To measure your own dark side, choose how much you agree or disagree with the simple statements  – and we’ll tell you how dastardly you actually are.

The test consists of twenty-seven statements that must be rated on how much you agree with them. The test should not take most people more than five minutes.

The Dark Triad personality is a term that emerged relatively recently among personality psychologists. A person who demonstrates the characteristics of the Dark Triad is often manipulative, unsympathetic to others, and thinks they are deserving of admiration. It might be easy to recognize some of these traits in other people, but how can you objectively examine them in yourself? This quiz asks a series of simple questions, each meant to measure a different part of the triad, to give you a measure for the Machiavellian, narcissist and psychopathic traits you embody as well as an overall measure of how ~evil~ you are.
