“Natural Forces Within Us Are The True Healers” ~ Hippocrates


By Frans Stiene, International House of Reiki

The system of Reiki is a set group of Japanese practices that when brought together create a system that supports spiritual growth and healing. These practices work with energy - spiritual energy. As the Japanese name for spiritual energy is Reiki - you can see where the system’s name originated from.

But what energetic system are the principles of a Reiki practice based on? As Reiki is a Japanese practice that was created in the early 1900s we are aware that (as with many martial arts and Ki practices that were formalized in Japan at the same time – karate, judo, aikido) the hara or tanden were considered to be the centre of the body’s energetic powerhouse.

The word hara literally means stomach, abdomen or belly in Japanese. Energy is stored in this point of the body from where it expands throughout the whole body.

Usui Mikao's teachings focus on building the energy in the hara. From Hawayo Takata's diary notes it can be seen that she too was taught to practice in this manner.

Once the system of Reiki became more westernized in the 1980s the chakra system (an energetic system from India that has been incorporated into the New Age movement) was introduced and replaced this system - the chakra system is now commonly used in the West.

In traditional Japanese teachings and exercises today the hara system is still the main focus for building a person's energy. There are, in fact, two other energy centres in the body according to the Japanese energetic system. One is the head and the other is the heart. In The Japanese Art of Reiki we have called these the Three Diamonds. By linking all three areas the practitioner creates unity and balance. Most important, however, is to first develop the lower hara, as this is the body's central axis point.

Re-establishing this connection with the Original Energy through the hara will ensure good health and recovery from illness. There is always access to a reliable source of strength whenever needed.

An inner attitude results from first focusing on the hara. From this central point there is an ability to cope with everyday tasks and sudden emergencies with an ease of understanding. This allows appropriate action to be taken in a balanced and unprejudiced manner.

1. Earth Energy (Hara - approximately 3 inches (8cms) below the naval)

In this centre, Original Energy is stored. This is the energy you are born with, the energy that is the essence of your life and gives you your life’s purpose. The Original Energy is not only the energy you receive from your parents when you are conceived but most importantly it is the energetic connection between you and the universal life force. When the singular term hara is mentioned it is the lower hara that is being discussed. This is the symbolic energetic centre for Earth Ki.

2. Heavenly Energy

This is the energy connected with your spirit. When you are connected with this centre you may see colours or you might have psychic ability. It is important for you not to become unbalanced and keep yourself centred. If you can use this energy in a balanced way, you can see beyond the immediate. This is the symbolic energetic centre for Heaven Ki.

3. Heart Energy

The energy in this centre is connected with emotions. It is 'human' energy connected with human experience. Through this centre you learn your life's process. From childhood through to adulthood and back to being a child. When you are a child you are without experience and as you grow older you become a child with experience. This is the symbolic energetic centre for Heart Ki.

The three diamonds of Earth Ki, Heaven Ki and Heart Ki are at the foundation of the system of Reiki. They are also at the crux of many facets of Japanese culture, religion and philosophy.

A diamond is often used as an analogy of the self in Buddhism. Each and every day a practitioner polishes the diamond by performing his or her practice. This is a constant task for humans who, in this earthly realm, attract dirt: becoming muddy and tarnished. A diamond is so sharp that it can cut through almost anything humanity attaches itself to, bringing back the true essence of life as seen in the perfection of a sparkling diamond.

Food is not just calories, it is information. It talks to your DNA and tells what to do. The most powerful tool to change your health, environment and entire world is your fork. ~ Dr. Mark Hyman

The way we live and the nature of our jobs affect our eyes. Working long hours on a computer or browsing on a phone continuously increases exposure to blue light and screen time. In the long run, such a lifestyle can cause strain, headaches, and weaken our eyes.

Ayurvedic expert Dr Dimple Jangda suggests three ways to reduce pressure on your eyes and enable you to take good care of them. Due to our continual exposure to mobile phones, laptops, and desktops on a day-to-day, hour-to-hour basis, your eyes have been consuming “a lot of blue light,” she wrote on Instagram.

In addition, she suggested the following tips to help: Wearing reading glasses while reading is a good idea if you don’t use power glasses. Get any reading glasses that block blue light and use them to read from your phone or laptop, she said. When worn while reading, it reduces the strain on your eyes.

It can be beneficial to keep your eyes cool after working with computers all day to reduce strain. Using products with cooling properties, such as grated cucumber, cucumber juice on cotton pads, rose water and tea bags that contain flavonoids and are anti-inflammatory, is recommended by Dr Jangda. To reduce inflammation and heat, apply this around your eyes. In addition, she recommends applying kajal with almond oil or ghee to your lower eyelids to improve good heat (pitta). She said this helps your tear ducts release tears and debris trapped in them. Kohl is a popular beauty product on the Indian subcontinent.

Even those who aren’t heavily into makeup, swear by the subtle effectiveness of kohl, which enhances their look and makes their eyes seem bigger and more defined.

In conclusion, taking care of your eyes is essential for maintaining good overall health, especially in the digital age where many of us spend hours in front of screens. One effective way to do this is by taking regular screen breaks to give your eyes a rest and reduce eye strain.

It is also vital to listen to your body and take breaks when you feel tired or uncomfortable. As a result, ignoring eye strain can result in more serious eye problems in the future. To prevent eye damage and maintain healthy vision, it is necessary to prioritize eye care and change your habits.


Every Human Being is the Author of His Own Health or Disease ~ Budha

Do you feel like your immune and respiratory system needs some extra love? Well, look no further than the flavonoid quercetin. Quercetin is a naturally occurring antioxidant commonly found in fruits and vegetables, including dark berries, grapes, and dark leafy greens! Green tea and red wine are also known to have notable amounts of quercetin.

This potent antioxidant not only boosts your immune system and supports respiratory health, but it can help with your body's natural response to allergens, histamines, and inflammation. Let's dive into the top six quercetin benefits that you need to know.

Benefits of Quercetin

1. Supports Respiratory Health

When your respiratory system is irritated, redness and swelling can result from the release of histamines. Quercetin may be your newest go-to supplement! It's shown to have an antihistamine effect. Quercetin influences intracellular enzymes and may help inhibit histamine release. This can often provide relief for watery eyes, runny nose, and swelling in the face. Quercetin may even help with photosensitivity — extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun and other light sources.

2. Boosts Cardiovascular Health

Did you know that the consumptions of flavonoids promote healthy hearts? Quercetin is known to support heart health, as well as encouraging blood flow. It even protects against LDL cholesterol sticking to artery walls.

3. Promotes Balanced Blood Pressure

In addition to supporting cardiovascular health, quercetin naturally promotes balanced blood pressure. A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover study evaluated the effect of quercetin supplementation and reported that the participants experienced a stabilization in systolic, diastolic and average arterial pressure.

4. Offers Protection Against Stress

When your body is stressed, it produces cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that produces that "fight or flight" response. Although this is normal, when your stress levels are high and ongoing, cortisol can damage muscle tissue, leading to protein breakdown in the body. Quercetin can fight these effects during times of extended stress as it suppresses the enzyme necessary for cortisol release.

5. Potential for Upper Respiratory Conditions?

Although the jury is still out, numerous animal studies and lab models have suggested that quercetin may offer a bronchial dilating effect. A 2013 study determined that it inhibited an enzyme that breaks down signaling proteins which produce swelling and airway narrowing. Quercetin caused a relaxation of the airway smooth muscle, leading researchers to suggest it may offer therapeutic solutions for persons suffering from upper respiratory conditions.[7] Hopefully more research will continue to explore this possibility.

6. Offers Nutritional Support for Overall Health

Listen, putting good nutrition into your body is one of the best measures you can take to encourage good health. It's not a guarantee, and some people will still get sick, but it's a good foundation and fundamental approach. Why should quercetin be part of your approach? Because research has shown that people who consume more fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of some diseases and lab studies have shown that quercetin has a positive benefit against some cancers. Is it a cure? No. Is it something you should check into? I think so.

Supplementing With Quercetin

Although quercetin offers many benefits and it is all-natural, there are a few health considerations. Large amounts can stress the kidneys, it may also interact with blood thinners, corticosteroids, and aspirin. If you're taking any of these, it's probably best to check with your healthcare provider before adding quercetin to the list – especially if you're taking it in supplement form. Most people, however, should be able to enjoy dietary quercetin (fruits and vegetables) without a concern.
