A wonderful article on How Energy Medicine works!

How does Reiki and other methods of hands-on healing work from a scientific standpoint?

People around the world have been using Reiki and other hands-on healing methods to assist individuals in improving their health and state of well-being for centuries. As humans and technology have evolved, we began to take a more medical approach to health and wellness (at least in the western world); therefore, Reiki and other alternative methods of healing have been perceived as unrealistic or “mystical”.  We are now at the point in our human evolution where we are uncovering the science behind formerly “mystical” approaches.  Much the same as once thinking the stars in the sky were all Gods or the world was flat, we now have the technology to look beyond the mysticism and see the reality of what is before us.
Reiki practitioners often describe how their healing modality works as bringing Source energy (God energy, Love energy, Chi, etc.) in through their crown chakra (top of the head), down through their heart chakra, into their arms (extensions of the heart chakra), out their hands and into the body & energetic field of their client — healing, balancing and cleansing them.  While this explanation is certainly valid, it is difficult for people who need a more scientific or logical explanation of how Reiki works to accept this explanation.
To view this from a logical standpoint we need to understand the electromagnetic field, the myofascial system, chakras, and biophotons.  Once these are understood separately we can put them together to understand the science behind holistic energy healing.

The Electromagnetic Field

Energy Torus field of a man's heartTo grasp the basic concepts of energy healing understand first that everything is made up of electromagnetic energy, or simply put, energy.  All energy vibrates at different frequencies that correspond to sound, light and color. The Eastern explanation of energy refers to this energy as ‘Chi’ (pronounced Chee), the vital life force energy of the Universe, present within every living thing, whereby the Western explanation of energy within the body typically refrains from explaining what energy is but instead states that we need energy within our bodies to sustain life and that energy cannot be destroyed or eliminated from our being. Western medical science is now beginning to take a serious look at ancient Far Eastern traditions that focus on Chi, the life force energy which flows through the body pathways – known as meridians and chakras – of all living forms, in order to maintain health and wellness, energetically, mentally, physically, and emotionally. This life-force energy, or Chi, moves within, from and around our bodies through what is known as an electromagnetic field (see picture above). An electromagnetic field (also known as EMF or EM field) is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. Humans, animals, plants, cell phones, even planet Earth has an EMF and this Chi flows from all parts in the Universe, in and throughout this EMF continually. The Institute of HeartMath is currently conducting enlightening research on the EMF and their findings on how the EMF affects and is affected by our emotions and thoughts, or intention.  It is this field that energetic healers work within to bring about clearing, balancing and healing of the body.

The Myofascial System

Fascial (Fascia) Tissue up closeThe Myofascial System, which makes up 60% of your body, consists of fascial tissue (fascia). In the photo to the right you can see that fascial tissue is actually made up of tiny microtubules of callogen, similar to fiber optics, which are hollow and fluid-filled and carry information about proprioception as well as carrying your consciousness throughout your body.
This tissue is a white or clear connective tissue that supports, envelops, and connects our organs, bones, muscles, and tissue together.  The fascia provides a sliding and gliding environment for muscles, suspends organs in their proper place, transmits movement from muscles to bones, and provides a supportive and movable wrapping for nerves and blood vessels as they pass through and between muscles. If you ever dissected an animal in your high school biology class, you would have cut through this white, skin-like tissue to get to whatever organ, muscle or bone you were trying to find.
fascial-bandsFascia also conducts your energy; you might consider it an energy highway.  When we send energy from our body to another body it is moving through and from the fascia.  This fascia also creates our chakras or energy centers within the body. These energy centers are where the fascial tissue actually congregates in horizontal bands (see diagram to the left) creating a concentration of energetic vibration and internal power.
The videos below will assist in understanding more about the myofascial system and its role in energy conduction…Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot of research that has been done on living fascia but in recent years new technology and instruments have allowed scientists, researchers, and doctors to see the fascia up close in a living organism while performing its normal functions.




By understanding your electromagnetic field and fascia, you can now see how this life-force energy moves throughout and around your body, both physically and energetically.  However, to fully understand energetic healing we must add the variable of biophotons and their role in this fascinating process.
wpaad2cca9All living organisms emit a constant current of biophotons, which are elementary particles of light coming from a biological being. Pictured to the left are biophotons in a drop of water. These particles are emitted and direct instantaneous signals to multiple locations at once, from one part of the body to another, and to the outside world. They are stored in the DNA and their function is cellular communication.  Physicists actually call these light particles the “communicators” in the body because they use your intention to direct other particles to rearrange into either a healthy or non-healthy pattern.  In biology every cell in your body has over 100,000 biochemical reactions per second, all of which must be carefully timed and sequenced with each other. Research has provided evidence that this cellular dance is not random, but rather controlled by these biophotons.  To further explain, science is showing us that biophotons are in control of virtually every biochemical reaction that occurs in your body through our thoughts, emotions, and intention, including supporting your body’s ability to heal, releasing old patterns or forming new supportive ones.
A direct intention manifests itself as an electric and magnetic energy producing an ordered change of photons. Our intentions operate as highly coherent frequencies capable of changing the molecular structure of matter.
In short, it is the biophotons that allow for our patterns to form and break, allow our emotions to hold a negative charge or balance into a positive experience, and allow our body to be in a state of health or dis-ease.
Taking this explanation of biophotons one step further, we’re going to look at images of biophotons in a drop of water (below). In February 2006, using a Somatoscope, which is a darkfield microscope with a magnification of 30,000x, researchers were able to observe the inside structure of biophotons for the very first time. What was discovered when focusing on a single biophoton was that in the center of this spark of light a six-pointed star was contained within a hexagonal geometric shape, as is seen appearing in photo 4.  By photo 6 you can see a Merkaba form in the middle with a hexagon around the edge and by photo 9 you can see the Flower of Life form.  If you connect Sacred Geometry with healing, you may come to the conclusion that at the center of the flower of life is our consciousness, the consciousness directs the photons, the photons direct our patterns and positive or negative state of being, which means – we completely control our own state of being.  We are not a victim to anyone or anything, we hold all the cards and only we can heal ourselves.
For more information on Sacred Geometry, watch this great little video from our friends at Spirit Science!

Putting it all together

Reiki works when biophotons are brought in from source energy, through the fascia, into the heart and then into the hands of a practitioner or ones’ own hands.  When a practitioner and a client have a shared intention or when the self has a clear intention on what is wanted the biophotons travel through the fascia of the client or self, moving into the DNA and communicate with other biophotons within the body to allow healing, clearing, balancing, etc.  In other words the biophotons are directed to restructure the chemical reactions and molecular makeup of the body for health and wellness to occur.

Conducting a healing session

imageAnyone can heal and everyone has the power to change the course of their physical, mental and emotional well-being.  The following is an explanation of one method of conducting a healing session on others, but can easily be applied to the self.  Methods vary from practitioner to practitioner and each method has value and worth.  If you are not finding success with your own self-healing, seek a local energy healer who can guide you through your release.
To begin, take a few deep breaths with your client to help engage the Vagus nerve which triggers a signal within your nervous system to slow down the heart rate, lower blood pressure, and decrease cortisol, the stress hormone. Then guide them into their heart center (chakra) asking them to connect their heart to yours so that a partnership is formed while conducting the healing process.  Remind the person you are working on that the practitioner is a conduit to move the energy and set the space for healing to occur—the true healer is the self.
Kelly Schwegel HealingOnce hearts are connected begin by placing your hands on your client –go where you feel called to go, listening to your intuition or when releasing old emotion, place one hand on the heart and one on the solar plexus.  Set an intention for the energy and ask to bring in the right energy for the client’s highest and greatest good. By setting that intention you bring in the correct arrangement of photons into your crown chakra, down through your heart, out your arms, and through your hands.  What leaves your hands are biophotons that are in perfect arrangement for the client’s healing and balance. Once these particles of light enter your client’s body, they communicate with the client’s own biophotons to assist in rearranging molecules into a healthy pattern. Continue to set these intentions together as you work on various parts of the body or on particular emotional releases, moving this energy through the fascia.  By doing this rearranging of molecules, energy blockages and old emotions can be released, leaving the client in a healthier, balanced state. There are particular techniques and symbols that are taught in Reiki classes and can increase frequency and direction for the healing sessions; seek a local Reiki instructor for further training to assist either yourself or others.


Although it is typically very difficult for many to accept changes in the way we view the world and the advances we are making that assist us in understanding it, we know that we have much to learn and our growth is not nearly complete. As a society, the more open we are to looking beyond what has been and open up to what we are currently learning, the more progress we will make as an evolving species.

March is Color Therapy month!

 Herald in Spring with this wonderful Color Meditation by Louise Hay!

Now, close your eyes. Relax and take several deep breaths.

Now let your body tension go.

We are going to take a color trip. Climb a mountain of color. During this trip, I want you to be aware of your breathing. Each time you take in a breath, you will be inhaling a color, which will have a definite effect on your body.

We are at the bottom of a mountain, a mountain of color. Here at the bottom of the mountain, everything is Red, the grass, the flowers, the trees and even the air. Each time you inhale you breathe in Red. And as you continue to do this, you feel your energy level pick up. With each Red inhalation, all fears drop away and you have the courage to be yourself. Look around, everything you see is Red. Feel this Red.

All right now. We have vitalized our bodies and we are proceeding up the mountain. As we arrive at the second level, we see that now everything is colored Orange. Breathe in Orange with each inhalation. As this Orange color enters your body, you feel your inhibitions drop away and you become more aware of both your physical vitality and your mental powers. You feel balanced. Everything you see is Orange. Feel this Orange.

Now we climb to the next level. As we arrive, we see that here everything is Yellow. Now we are breathing in Yellow with each inhalation. As you breathe in Yellow, you feel your mind expanding. Sense the freedom gained through the use of your mind. You feel Yellow saturating your body with happiness and a joy of living. Look around, everything you see is Yellow. Feel this yellow.

Now it is time to climb to the next level, and now we feel great peace and tranquility as we enter the Green world. Everything at this level is Green. It is the midpoint in our climb and a time for rest. We are aware that we must alternate activity with rest. Breathe in Green with each inhalation. See the color coming into your lungs. Feel the balance within yourself. The Green is soothing your muscles and relaxing your body and your mind. Everything you see is Green. Feel this Green.

All right. We have rested. And now we climb further and reach the Blue plateau. Everything is blue. We begin to sense eternity. For we have left the valley and our sight has no limitations. We can see both heaven and earth. Breathe in this Blue and feel faith entering your body. The Blue takes away all anxieties as you get a glimpse of true understanding. Everything you see is Blue, feel this Blue.

With this faith within you, we now climb higher and gradually enter the Indigo level. Everything you see has that deep Indigo quality. Breathe in this color and feel your intuitive perception increasing. You are beginning to see the larger picture, beyond the little personal problems, to get a sense of the journey of life. Breathe in the Indigo with each inhalation. Feel this Indigo.

This Indigo breath is filling your body with love—for yourself and for all mankind. For you realize we are all one family.

With this knowledge, we almost float up the mountain reaching the summit. Here we see that everything has turned Violet. As we breathe in this Violet color, we seem to see to eternity. And though it is the unknown, we are not afraid. For we have within us courage, balance, joy, peace, faith, love and understanding. With each Violet breath, feel the understanding of the truth of the Universe filling your very being. Your flaws and your faults drop away and you see yourself as shining perfection. Everything you see is Violet. Feel this Violet.

You are truly one with all life. You know it. You sense it. You feel it. You will carry this with you wherever you go.

Everything we learn, we tuck away in our minds. It is all useful at some time and some place. Today we have all come here for a reason. Let’s take this knowledge with us and put it to use in our own lives.

This is a good day and we rejoice in the joy of living. All right now, let us slowly come back.

Managing your Stress

Recently I came across an article from Deepak Chopra that talked about the importance of Meditation and Mindful Awareness. Since his point of view was so in line with what I believe, I wanted to share with you in just a few words the seven important ways with which he recommends handling stress in your life.

1. Meditation
What a powerful way to start and end your day and keep your soul calm and collected.  Meditation is simply some time set aside just for you, in which you can be quiet, slow down your breathing, and get a hold on your day before it even begins.
It has been shown that Meditation decreases our blood pressure and resets our body in a way that it is able to deal with outside stressors in a much healthier way. When our mind is calm our body relaxes as well.
If you are new to Meditation you can start by sitting comfortably for a few minutes and be aware of your breath. Or you can pick a favorite mantra (a positive phrase that you repeat over and over again) and keep your attention on that. Don't worry it gets easier with practice and you will be able to sit for longer periods of time, to where you sometimes lose yourself in time and space. You may also take a mindful walk outside or walk  
a labyrinth.
Throughout the year I hold meditation classes where you can come and become familiar with the practice. Or you can email me and we can arrange a session to focus on just Meditation. 

2. Resolve
If there is a particular situation that brings you stress, is it possible that by addressing it you could come to a resolution?In my sessions, I always remind you about using positive words and thoughts to direct a situation and Non-Violent communication to resolve those ackward moments when we find ourselves in a disagreement with others. It takes practice but the results are rewarding.

3. Mindfull Awareness 
Take time to listen to your body and what it has to say to you. Our body is in constant communication with our brain alerting us to things that it might not happy with. 
Pay attention to signals of distress whether those are emotional or physical. And move forward when you feel good about your decision.
Learn to listen and accept what your body is offering you. For example if you have a big decision to make about lets say accepting a job and there is this gut feeling that is making you sick, chances are this job is not right for you. Take time to examine your offer more closely and see if it can be adjusted in some way that you would feel good about it. Maybe offer to work certain days or hours that are better for your schedule.
Your body will always look out for you, so it is worth paying attention. After all it only wants to make you happy :-)  
Very often when we are caught off guard and find ourselves in stressful situations we become ungrounded. In those moments it is hard to make sound decisions. Have you noticed how animals "shake" things off? Take an example from mother nature: ducks will shake their wings and move along after a confrontation with another duck. They just shake it off and keep going. We need to learn to do the same.
Come see me if you need help learning how to keep yourself grounded and skate more easily through life. 

4. Understanding your mind-body constitution
Deepak talks about the four doshas (mind-body constitution) in Ayurveda and how they govern our lives. 
Every body type has a different internal composition and way of reacting to external stimuli. It is helpful to look into those and understand how you are unique in that way.
Read on for a link at the end of this article to find out more about your doshas. 

5. Sleep
It is essential to give your body and mind time to rest and it is equally important to follow your body's rhythm on when to awake and when to go to sleep. Our body is more efficient performing certain tasks at specific time frames. Typically if we were to follow our circadian rhythm we should go to sleep when the sun sets and awaken when the sun rises. In today's world it is increasingly hard to keep such a schedule but it is at least helpful to go to sleep before 10:00 pm and rise by 6:00 am. This way you feel more refreshed and are ready to face the day. Your body's rhythm slows down between those times and is typically full of energy while the sun is out.
Journalling before you go to bed is also a great way to put your day's thoughts on paper and have a quiet and calm mind so you may sleep better.

6. Yoga
Yoga is such a wonderful and calming practice and we arelucky that here in Northern Colorado we have a sleuth of Yoga studios to choose from. Yoga not only helps the body regain strength and flexibility but it also aligns your energy centers so that you are more balanced.  It quiets the mind and centers us, while releasing stress and anxiety. There are many different types of yoga; you could try different styles and see which one might work for you. If you are new to yoga, it is always better to start with a class and get the basics down. There are plenty of CDs and streaming channels that offer Yoga classes as well.  

7. Joy
Take a moment to partake in activities that bring you joy. Our lives have become so busy that we forget to take time for just us. We are each born with a gift. A gift that we owe it to the world to share with everyone. So take some time to go within and explore that gift. Once you connect with that your life will become fuller and happier. 
And in every day terms find the things that you love to do throughout the day. Maybe you love to run, or take a yoga class, or paint or take photographs, ride your bicycle or read  book. Could you put aside some time each day or several times a week for just that? 
While we may feel that we do not have time for such luxuries, it is taking time for things like that that gives us the energy to live each day in its fullest.

These points are all discussed by Deepak but written in my words. If you would like to read to whole article by Deepak Chopra please visit: Article by Deepak Chopra
