The benefits of Energy healing (Reiki) are profound. Nowadays, the life is fast, and so is the need to be focused and energized. In Japan, a form of natural healing was discovered, called “Reiki”, which can help you stay physically, mentally and spiritually fit.

The life force is the force that keeps oneself alert and fresh all day long. It is the life force that helps one keep a balance in work and life and controls emotions and mood. On the other hand, if the life force is weak, the person feels tired all day and is also likely to get physical and mental diseases.

Do you suffer from Gluten Sensitivity?

Discipline for the body: Meditation for the mind
Discipline is for the body while meditation is for the mind. Masters in the art of mortal combat often teaches the “mind over matter” techniques in order to achieve maximum potential. Your awareness, calm, and focus will increase through proper meditation. The subtle differences can mean victory or defeat in combat. Improper tuning of awareness causes a weak stance for the enemy to exploit. Entering combat with a clouded mind renders you impaired in making decisions whether to attack or defend. An anxious mind will result in an un-calmed body which wastes more energy than needed; you will have been defeated by your opponent even before the combat begins. This counts also for your everyday life; with a calm mind your progress improves fast with a troubled mind you stand still or reverse.
