3-Legged Stool, Plus One
Reiki is an amazing tool in my toolbox for healing and feeling better.
A very wise woman taught me to imagine healing as supported by a three-legged stool. The first leg is: energy medicine (flower essences, homeopathy, cells salts, reiki, plus many more!); the second leg, nutrition/biochemics (nutrient rich foods, and/or high quality absorbable supplements); the third, physical work (chiropractic/cranial sacral therapy, rolfing). Together, the three are more powerful than separate.
The woman talked about positive energy/appreciation, but it was never included in the above triad. As the years passed, I slowly incorporated all three legs. To my frustration, I still didn’t see remarkable healing. It wasn’t until I sifted through the layers of negative feelings and fears and gave them to The Universe did I start to really move down the path of healing. I used flower essences, homeopathy and energy daily to help me with the process. With that release, I was finally light enough to add a grateful heart. It was when that feeling of gratitude appeared, deep in my soul, I really began to heal. Gratitude – beautiful, joyful and pure – turned out to be just as important in my healing as the other three legs.
