Dr Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, a Nobel Prize winner said:
“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.”
Energy is the key to life – our life force and it comes from within.
In today’s fast-paced life, we’ve become a bit addicted to the ‘busy-ness’ syndrome. As a leader, I’m sure you know what that feels like – there’s always so much to do, so much change happening and never-ending notifications on our smart devices. It’s easy to allow stress to build up and take its toll on our mental, emotional and physical well-being which over time can lead to illness, burn out and dis-ease.
Managing your energy is vital if you want to achieve your goals and dreams, to live life more purposefully, joyfully and mindfully.
Everyone can relate to the physical body as it can be seen and felt. Equally, we all have an energy field around us and an energetic body which for many is less visible, but it can still be seen and/or felt. Remember that vibe you feel – well that’s energy. We are all attuned to energy through our senses, but not always aware of the impact it has on us.
Typical energy medicines that you may already be familiar with are: acupuncture, shiatsu, aromatherapy, homeopathy, osteopathy, reiki, chiropractic, yoga, flower essences and massage are examples.
West meets East
Jo Hutchinson originally started her career as a Medical Diagnostic Radiographer – taking x-rays to see what can’t be seen! Now she feels what can’t be seen, the energy. Trained in Western Medicine, she’s always had a passion for Eastern and natural modalities, recognizing the infinite wisdom contained within the body to restore, balance and heal itself.
She believes energy is the key to our well-being and is essential to living our highest expression and purpose. Well-being is the state of being well; of feeling relaxed, clear, confident and resilient. Our entire being is interconnected physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually so an imbalance in one affects the other.
Re-energise with Reiki
Reiki is an ancient Japanese practise that traditionally uses the hands to move energy. It is very gentle and improves the flow of energy through our energy centres known as chakras and meridians which enables balance and harmony. It helps to shift emotional and mental patterns to help you move forward with clarity, confidence and more importantly, energy!
Some of the benefits of Reiki are:
- Enables a deep state of relaxation
- Releases tension in the body
- Increases a sense of emotional well-being
- Can release or reduce pain
- Feeling empowered and energised
- Brings mental clarity
Taking time out to take care of yourself is not selfish – rather it is all about self-care. Remember on a plane, we are taught to put on our oxygen mask first before we can then help others. So you too, must look after yourself first so that then you can put your energy into the things that matter.
