How Reiki Works


Reiki 
is a Japanese healing technique for relaxation and stress relief.  It is a natural energy therapy that promotes holistic balance and healing, and can benefit the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body and can be helpful for numerous conditions from back pain and insomnia to depression, stress & anxiety. Reiki works alongside other complementary therapies or medication/medical treatment.  

Rei – universal
Ki – life force/energy (known as Chi in china or prana in India)

How reiki works

Reiki is administered by 'laying on hands' in a series of positions over the body and in the energy field/aura. Reiki is the 'life force energy' that flows through us all. If this is low then we are more susceptible to illness, disease and feelings of stress. If our energy (or ki) is high and balanced then we are more able to experience health and well-being.

Reiki is a gentle, yet powerful healing system. It addresses both the symptom and the cause of any disease. The reiki practitioner does not seek to diagnose. The reiki goes where it needs to go for the best effect and use.

Reiki flows through the practitioner to the client but is not created by the practitioner. The practitioner acts as a conductor and catalyst of the reiki to be used and absorbed by the client.

Reiki helps to correct the energy balance of the recipient and in doing so promotes their own self-healing process. It offers no magical cure, and everyone reacts in their own way to a reiki treatment. It is not unusual for people to laugh, cry, fall asleep, and feel warm or cold. We will all have our unique experience of reiki and how it works and manifests in us.

Reiki goes wherever it is needed in the body and energy field. As well as being useful for treating all living things it can also be sent to distant events and places, both past and future.

kale and potato hash with sumac, thyme and cumin

kale and potato hash with sumac, thyme and cumin

Cold weather calls for comforting bowl food, and recipes that are packed with flavour and immune boosting ingredients. The kale is the star of this dish, adding a super green ferrous bite that complements the sharp citrus of the sumac, and warming earthiness of cumin and thyme.

A great recipe to use up any leftover baked or boiled potatoes or cooked kale. On the table in less than half an hour - all that's needed is to decide what to top your kale and potato hash with. I like to serve this with a spoonful or 2 of thick yogurt and an extra sprinkling of sumac, but a fried egg would be a very welcome addition, as would a crumbling of a sharp fresh cheese, such as feta, or soft grilled tomatoes. The choice is yours...



serves: 4 

preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes 
recipe by Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousin 
suitable for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free diet 

ingredients:

2 handfuls kale - washed and finely chopped
250g cooked potatoes (leftover baked or boiled potatoes) chopped
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp sumac
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tbsp oil
salt and pepper

method:


heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the sliced onion, cumin seeds and thyme and fry until the onions are softened and caramelized on the edges.


stir in the crushed garlic and sumac, then add the chopped potato and kale. Continue to cook until the kale is softened, and the potatoes are golden brown. Check for seasoning, adding salt and pepper taste. Serve hot.

tofu, quinoa and bean burger

tofu, quinoa and bean burger


My tofu, quinoa and bean burgers are packed with protein and full of texture and bite. Spiced with cumin, oregano and a hint of chilli.  Serve in a burger bun with all the trimmings. A quick and easy veggie burger for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. 

A great way of using up leftovers and odds and ends of cooked quinoa, tofu, beans and bread crumbs too. 

makes 6

ingredients:

100g firm tofu
250g cooked/tinned kidney beans
1 egg
100g cooked quinoa
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 - 1 tsp cayenne
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 garlic clove
salt and pepper
100g breadcrumbs
cooking oil


method:


Add all the ingredients (apart from the quinoa and breadcrumbs) to a food processor and blend until well mixed but still with a bit of texture. You can of course do this with a spoon, but it will take a bit longer. Tip into a bowl and stir in the cooked quinoa. Shape the mixture into burgers and coat all over with breadcrumbs. Leave firm up in the fridge for 30-60 mins. Shallow fry for about 5 minutes each side or until crisp and golden and cooked through.
