Perimenopause, Menopause represents our birth into the ‘wise woman’ phase of our life.I wanted to write about using Shamanic Reiki Healing with the perimenopause and menopause as this is something I have personally been dealing with for years and have been able to balance myself with reiki to alleviate the typical dreaded symptoms. I want to share this with ALL women.
With an imbalance of hormones a few of the most common symptoms of the menopause women are most familiar with include migraines, hot flushes, cramps, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, weight gain, forgetfulness and depression which can all be addressed during a reiki treatment working with each of the 7 Chakras within our body.
The Sacral Chakra, or Swadhisthana in Sanskrit, is the Second Chakra located in the womb space above the pubic bone and below the navel and is responsible for the expression of sexuality and sensual pleasure. Bringing the Sacral Chakra back into balance to restore hormonal balance will help with both physical and emotional symptoms.
Crystal Healing techniques can also be included in the treatment.
The Sacral Chakra symbol shows a crescent shape to represent the link between the energy of the moon and water. Orange and yellow crystals are mostly used for opening the Sacral Chakra.
Moonstone is a unique crystal because it can be used for both opening and soothing the Sacral Chakra because of its connection with the moon. It is also first and foremost a women's stone, directly associated with the Mother Goddess representing the woman’s divine power and her fertility cycle that’s connected to the natural cycle of the moon’s phases. Moonstone balances hormones. Golden colour or Yellow hue are the most effective.
Carnelian is a stabilizing stone with high energy. This stone helps to balance the Sacral Chakra, cleanse, clear and emit healing energy to the reproductive system as it goes through this transition.
Orange carnelian can be used for either opening or soothing because of its unique healing properties.
Amber chakra stones are known for drawing energy into themselves, so can be used to soak up excess energy in the Sacral Chakra.
Orange Calcite and Citrine both have cleansing properties, which can help clear a blockage in the Chakra. Citrine is very helpful for symptoms of menopause and balancing hormones and help to control hot flushes. Working with the Sacral, Solar-Plexus, and Third-Eye Chakras, Citrine can enhance the energy flow between these Chakras, ameliorating symptoms of menopause. Citrine is also a crystal stone used for focus. Coral Calcite is often used in distance healing because of its amplifying qualities.
This stage of life should be used as personal reflection on everything you have accomplished and a cause for celebration.
