When we stop to think of health, we immediately consider the mind, body, emotions and spirit. Yet, there is an entire world living within us that is rarely discussed in Reiki circles. That world is made up of trillions of living, intelligent inhabitants. The microorganisms, that are a residents of each microbiome, have a profound impact on physical, mental, and emotional health. For Reiki practitioners, the implications of these microbiomes are tremendous.
The American Microbiome Institute states: “Taken collectively, these organisms outnumber our own human cells 10 to 1, making up 5 pounds of our body weight. We have evolved with these bacteria, passed down from mother to child, for hundreds of millions of years, and scientists are now uncovering the significant role they play in human health.” (1)
The Microbiome Effects:
♦ The immune system
♦ Energy levels
♦ Cognitive functioning
♦ Operation of neurotransmitters
♦ The ability to absorb essential nutrients
♦ Levels of inflammation in the body
♦ How the body is able to naturally detoxify
♦ The way vitamins are produced within our bodies
♦ Whether we succumb to allergies, or other physical and mental disorders and diseases
In other words, every aspect of health and wellbeing relies on the health and wellbeing of the microbiome. There is no way to separate from the interdependence of this world. It is created at the moment of our births and will continue until our deaths.
An example of this relationship we have with the microbiome is readily apparent when you think about the stress response. When you become startled, or hear upsetting news, you will notice an immediate reaction in your stomach. This reaction is caused from the constant messaging that is going back and forth between your mind and the microbiome’s main residence, which is in your gut. (The bulk of the microbiome live there due to easy access to food.)
When focusing Reiki treatments on the microbiome, there will be the deepest healing opportunity offered, whether a client is seeking relief from stress, or other symptoms caused by illness or life’s challenges. These results can be as immediate as the butterflies felt in your stomach when nervous, or how your stomach feels as if it is falling or jumping upon being startled.
As equally as effective as focusing Reiki treatments on the microbiome, is to charge your own microbiome with Reiki. Everything you touch, from a doorknob to a person, is left with remnants of your microbiome. These remnants can be traced back to within 99.9% certainty to the person who has left them behind, and considered more effective than a fingerprint.
Just imagine, everything you touch can immediately become infused with Reiki through the microbial residents who remain behind. Further, every person or pet who then touches what you have touched, will also benefit from this Reiki infusion. There is no need to worry about permissions for this type of Reiki practice, as Higher Conscious will automatically discern the level of consent for each being without your intervention.
Ultimately, using Reiki and the microbiome, the world can begin to heal in a way that will create unlimited opportunities for peace and wellbeing.
