REIKI - The Healing Feeling

by Pawan Manghnani on October 10th, 2013

I am Abso-f-REIKI-ng-lutely in love with my new self. And its all because of a path-breaking, mould-shattering, life-changing course helmed by my Reiki Master Farzeen Shroff who apart from being a divine spiritual guide is a multi-talented success story.

First lets understand what Reiki is all about. Reiki 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.

Reiki is of Vedic origin

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."

The curiosity bug for Reiki bit me when i was approximately 11 years old, my masi (Mom's Sister) had done the entire course & used to heal me and my sister whenever we were in Mumbai for our holidays and were down with flu, cold or fevers. Kids refer to reiki as the Magic Touch and rightly so. I never then got the chance to learn the art & ignored it like most adults do with their childhood dreams. Until 2011 when my close friends Jai & Junisha Shewaramani tried it in Mumbai & kept pestering me to try it as well but no matter how much i tried to take time off, never found the time, but finally in October 2013 after 2 weeks of a complete detox (Off alcohol, non vegetarian food, sheesha, cigars, tea, coffee) saw the entire level 1 course through. And my, what a spiritual roller-coaster it has been.

if you pick up your cell phone and call someone. the ring will go through and you can talk to the person. But have u ever tried calling yourself from your cell phone ? The tone will always be busy. In today's world we can reach anyone but ourselves. what we went thru past two days with our phones, without distractions was reaching out to our inner self. learning. meditating. experiencing something divine. 
​Tips by Farzeen Shroff:

Living Well is Simple

Filling our lives with meaning and fulfillment is not difficult, it is simple.  Unfortunately in the modern world we live in we are taught that complexity and constant stress are the norm.  The good news is this doesn't have to be the case!
I have compiled a personal "top 10" list of things that help me on a daily basis to keep me on the path.  You should come up with your own list, but remember, keep it simple, and make sure they are things you believe in. My top 10 list for simplifying:

1. Learn to mediate:  Meditation is not a weird spiritual practice available only to gurus and spiritual masters.  Meditation is the simple practice of "letting go", of "living in the moment", of becoming "aware".  I choose to meditate twice a day for 15 to 20 minutes per session.  When I forget to do so I find my stress levels and dissatisfaction levels rise. It's a short investment of time for some incredible results.

2. Stop Watching Cable T.V.: Most television programs are filled with negative and violent content.  Most of us intend to watch the tube for a short while but end up "zoning out" and get stuck for hours.  This is time we could better spend with family and friends and activities that are more rewarding.

3. Eat More Whole Foods:  The body is a machine, and the higher-quality the fuel, the better it will run.  Pick up the Canada Food Guide or similar document and you will be amazed at how much more vital you will feel.

4. Surround Yourself With People Who Inspire:  If we have friends that are negative and self-centered it is likely we will be influenced by them in some way.  The converse is also true, that by choosing companionship that is inspirational and positive that this will rub off on us as well. Find people who know how to really smile and keep them close.

5. Spend Time In Nature:  The natural world has a balance that has existed for billions of years.  We are connected to the natural world more intricately than we usually admit.  Go for a hike, fill your home with plants, stop to notice the flower growing at the base of the Stop sign at the end of the street.  Getting away from the bustle of the man-made world can calm you immensely.

6. Read Books On Positive Living:  The Alchemist, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Don't Sweat The Small Stuff, and hundreds of other books of inspiration are available at your local library.  You will be amazed at the tidbits you will adopt in your daily life.

7. Keep Things In Perspective: There is no single event in your life that you have not overcome.  After all, you are still here and those events are long gone (events currently weighing heavy on your mind will soon disappear as well).  You have the power not only to survive adversity, but to use it to help you become more powerful than you can imagine.

8.  Give Thanks Everyday:  Miracles and good fortune find us each and every day.  Take time to keep an inventory of these positive things each and every day.  You will be surprised just how many things you have to be thankful for!

9. Be Mindful: Question everything.  Only do things that fit your moral code, and stick to it.  We define ourselves by our virtues, and being mindful of the things we do ensures that we live up to our own code.  Living without regret is a powerful thing indeed!

10. Have fun!  As adults we forget that we are allowed to just have fun.  We are told to become more serious, more focused, but people fail to tell us we can attain all we want in life while experiencing joy everyday! We have but one life, let's enjoy it as much as possible
