Poem Silence

Silence
by Johnny Walks

I see your strength
in your silence
oh wise one
where have you gone
I see your strength
in your beauty
oh great one
I see you
It is pure delight
that I know of you
I see your strength
in your muscles
oh magnificent one
I see your strength
in your peacefullness
it is pure delight
that I can say
I know of you

    Can Reiki help Alzheimers’ patients too?

    Reiki Kids are Highly Sensitive
    by Maureen Healy

    Children are the hands by
    which we take hold of heaven.
    -Henry Ward Beecher

    Our children are being born more sensitive than ever. They hate scratchy clothing, mean words and loud noises. Scientists estimate that between 15–20 % of children today are born with high sensitivity, although my experience tells me that it’s much higher. Of course, the challenge comes when their gentle nature rubs up against our sometimes not-so-sensitive world. So what can they do? Well, you may have guessed it—they can receive and learn Reiki.

    How Reiki Helps Sensitivity
    Lauren, aged twelve, said: “Reiki helps me feel tired” and that’s true. She had trouble sleeping and feeling relaxed before she got Reiki treatments. Marco, aged nine, told me: “I love helping with Reiki.” Marco is the “go to” person on his block in Los Angeles for fixing headaches and tummy problems. Whether sensitive boys or girls are giving or getting Reiki, they experience growth in very specific and important life skills:

    Self-Confidence – When sensitive boys and girls participate in giving someone Reiki it shows that they have tangible skills. Whereas some children might demonstrate their skills through a display of their soccer trophies, these children have a crystal collection and Reiki certification to show their attainments . It makes the invisible very visible, so they feel empowered on their path. Receiving Reiki is also a confirmation for them that the power to heal is within all of us.

    Calmness – Reiki helps sensitive children become calmer, especially when our world feels hectic and overwhelming. As in Lauren’s situation, it’s very practical to use Reiki to help someone sleep or feel more relaxed in high-stress situations (i.e. test-taking, performing, sporting events).

    Centeredness – Sensitive children feel more deeply and are quick to respond. So by building up a practice of Reiki (receiving or giving), they learn how to access their center and take a “sacred pause” before acting. Emma told me, “I love Reiki. It helps me feel OK when I used to cry,” and I couldn’t have said it better.

    Connection (to self and others) – Connecting with others in the Reiki world empowers sensitive children and helps them find their way. Althea, aged thirteen, told me: “I love, love, love coming to your classes and making new friends.” I teach a Reiki class at which a large group of intuitive kids come together, and they always laugh as well as make friends (it’s that birds of a feather idea).

    Spirituality – Sensitive boys and girls tend to believe in something greater whether it’s God or Nature. By becoming familiar with Reiki, they can begin to rely on the fact that “something greater” is in and around their lives helping them. One of my students, Noah, said: “God is in these crystals” and then we put Reiki into the crystals. It is the beginning of a spiritual practice.

    On the Path
    Highly sensitive children are learning how to become strong from the inside out, and Reiki helps them on their way. Of course, it isn’t the only way to help these intuitive and perceptive children, but it does strengthen their growing sense of self-confidence and resilience and ultimately, their ability to create true happiness.
