Peace And Balance By Reiki Healing

The past couple of weeks I had difficulty sleeping. I kept having some sort of panic attacks and anxiety about my professional/personal life and that I am wasting precious time being a home mom longer than a year and a half. My parental leave (forsakringskassan) paperwork has gone wrong since I got here and that also had its effect on me. No matter how much good time, activities and amazing adventures I've been doing on the island, there was a side of me which kept being unfulfilled. I keep reminding myself that gratitude and enjoying the moment is very important. And that this is only temporary and soon I will be back to the regular routine as soon as Julia gets back to kindergarten. 

As I mentioned in a previous Zen post. That I use yoga, guided meditation, and even hypnosis to keep my balance. I feel great doing these activities and recently I was talking to an old friend of mine who also has the same interests. And he recommended Reiki Music for chakra balancing, energy blocks and negativity cleanse. He actually sent me some videos to try to use while meditating or sleeping. Here I recommend this channel which I use NuMeditationMusic on youtube. 

I tried it yesterday and I was so surprised by the results. During Julia's day nap, I placed the sunbathing chair under the shade, I laid back and enjoyed this holy/divine like music. I got goosebumps listening to it and unexplainable inner peace and comfort. It was sunny, blue sky and the wind was blowing which added even more sense to the music. As I closed my eyes I kept seeing the chakra colors one by one. And as I finished I felt my chest was so light and my whole body was energized as if I drank a red bull can. This week I am studying Swedish literature, so the energy boost helped me do all my study tasks focused and happy as I would usual be. Not only that! I even received an email this morning from the parental leave related company (forsakringskassan) and I was told that a solution and decision was made. I couldn't believe that the blockiness is actually been released. So I am so so happy I came cross this info. I am filled with gratitude and joy. So in case, you don't know Reiki let me introduce it to you:

Reiki (霊気) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an "attunement" given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve one's health and enhance the quality of life. Here are some Reiki FAQ and Reiki Hand Positions for Self-Treatment.

The secret art of inviting happiness 
The miraculous medicine of all diseases 
Just for today, do not anger 
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude 
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people. 
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer. 
Pray these words to your heart 
and chant these words with your mouth.

Countdown Started

I am so excited that it's only about one month left for me to grab my life's wheel and get back on track. The 11:11 signs I see everywhere since the year started are proving it. I don't deny being here was a great experience which opened my eyes to lots of facts. But... alas, my ambitious self is unwilling to give me peace. The toughest challenges one can meet is a daily invigorated appetite for a career / work-life, and personal needs. And on the other hand, having to consider maintaining a family together.

So meanwhile I am trying to look at the full side of the cup and use this pause time to work on myself. I am studying 3 different courses at the same time, together with job hunting mission and other self-improvement practises regarding my almost 2 years home mom routine and brain laziness. 

While I am sitting doing my studies and minding my personal business, I get flushed couple of times from my study corner and deposited in the kitchen/laundry to do some of the home responsibilities. Or I get interrupted by Julias demands to play with her or give her attention ( watch out from the pool). Multitasking takes away a lot of my focus, energy and reduces the study quality. Not to mention dealing with mom guilt later on. So being here, I really miss the kindergarten service. 

I added yoga to my daily routine, doing a 31 days challenge to keep my inner balance, it makes me feel great. I still do my Tabata workouts whenever I get the chance. At the end of the day, I entertain myself sometimes watching American Crime Story: Versace. And I read some Swedish books to improve my profession vocabulary. 

This is simply my recent updates. Thanks to the girls day out in a resort on the 17th. We have been treated with margarita cocktails ( my favorites), 3 meals menu with white wine, jacuzzi, pool, sunbath with cold cold beer and great female adult conversations.  I really got the chance to recharge and kick back a little. It was actually my first time to really lay down and sunbath since we got here 4 months ago.  Next girls day will be on 6th March, can't wait to do it all again.

Guided Meditations And Hypnosis For Your Mind And Soul

Whenever you are in a meditative mood than usual or confronted by some big questions, trying to answer them on a metaphysical level. I personally rely a lot on guided meditation, chakra balance, and even hypnosis to clean my subconscious mind. It helps me think clearly and connect with myself inner self. This will not only help you to sleep well it will also make you break out of an older pattern of relating, and encouraging another step forward in the process of understanding yourself.

But if you haven't taken time to really think about your life and where it is going lately you'll probably feel inclined to do so. This vibration is tremendously helpful for gaining insight into yourself and the course your life is on. Meditation, therapeutic massage, yoga, and writing in a journal are all activities that can help you to make the most of this essence. Be sure to schedule something like this for yourself. I recommend Louise L Hays positive affirmation and Michael Sealey guided meditation and hypnosis.

Martinique Carnival 2018

It was such an amazing experience attending the Martinique Carnival 10 - 14 Feb. Fort de France city street was full of people, music everywhere, people dressed in costumes and the parade continued from the afternoon until sunset.  We were there on the first date as a group of families with kids and we decided to attend again on the 13th on the (Devil day) but only ladies. 

The festivities start straight after the Epiphany, that is to say even up to 2 months before Shrove Tuesday. The weekends host street parades, themed events and private celebrations that grow in intensity as the season progresses. The local government and community representatives meet to organize the festivities, every Sunday sees processions throughout the island.Every village elects a Queen and Junior Queen to be carried in triumph at the grand parade. Even the grandmothers compete for the honor, dressing in their finest traditional costumes. Read more details about Martinique Carnival  

So I enjoyed one more day getting out of the usual home mom routine. As the time started to get closer to get back to Sweden one must make the most of these last few weeks. So again on the 17th we planned another moms/ladies out day to spend it by the pool in a hotel resort. I am so excited as with this treat I will be wrapping up and getting ready to be in work business mood.

Housekeeping Tips: Solving Dog Hair Problem

I used to have a cute little dog just like this one in the photo but my dog was white. I named him Oskar, sadly I could only have Oskar for few months because I couldn't keep him in the house accommodation provided by my employ. Because of guess what? dog hair. And again last year I bought a very nice second-hand carpet which was more than half the original price. Not used much! but when I got it I discovered it was full of white dog hair and the carpet was gray. I washed the carpet many times but still, I couldn't get the hair off completely.
