Emotions impact our bodies in different regions. When I experience anxiety it really throttles my heart center. If I let it have its way with me, I may even begin to feel like it is hard to breathe. So how do I reign in the crazy train?
Scripture teaches that we can discipline our thoughts and that for sure is an important start. Whether you memorize a verse or repeat an affirmation. Our thoughts have a powerful impact on our reality. We need to ensure we are building ourselves up. But for me, and maybe some of you, sometimes my feelings and physical symptoms need a stronger intervention.
That stronger intervention for me is Reiki. The meditation and ritual for tuning into Reiki energy completely calms my system. Spending time steeped in the pure energy of life provides a divine reset. All of the physical symptoms that are triggered from anxiety, like tightness in the chest, are soothed. Mind chatter, that can be incessant, subsides. I also like to support a fragile energy center with a crystal. Crystals have different energy frequencies so they can be helpful in balancing energy within the body. Pink rose quartz and green aventurine are both excellent for bolstering energy at the heart.
Pink Rose Quartz: Rose Quartz shares the frequency of compassion and unconditional love. So it helps enhance love of all kinds, including kindness for yourself, loved ones, and all living things. The Rose Quartz stone uses the energy of unconditional love to bring your consciousness to a higher level. Its high frequency will help you forgive by opening and activating the heart chakra, the Rose Quartz stone can also help you recognize your capacity for compassion. The emotional healing of Rose Quartz can help you to release fear-based energy and emotions that can lodge themselves in the body, causing dis-ease or discomfort.
Green Aventurine: Aventurine specifically supports the lungs and heart. Its energetic properties help to dissipate negative thoughts and emotions, such as those associated with anxiety or loss. Aventurine fosters sentiments of gratitude and abundance, supporting life and new growth. Known as the "Stone of Opportunity,” Aventurine is known as one of the luckiest stones, which makes it a must-have for inviting wellness and prosperity into your life. It renews feelings of optimism and gratitude for all that you've received in your life. Utilize Aventurine to open the heart chakra to nurture and accept yourself just as you are, and invite in personal growth.
If anxiety has an impact on you, what symptoms affect you? How do you cope? I would love to hear what works for you! If you haven't already incorporated Reiki as a resource to manage your anxiety, I highly recommend doing so. Whether you choose to receive a Reiki session as a client for monthly maintenance care, or jump in and start taking Reiki classes, you will experience remarkable relief.
