A good fitness guide makes you want to workout. A great fitness guide gives you no choice but to workout.

You’ve learned that this book is more than just a fitness guide. This is a way of life. A way to build your inner power in a lasting way. You will be coming back to it again and again on your journey to fitness and motivation. The secrets it provides you to excel in the area of fitness form just one aspect. It is also profoundly informative on the subjects of health and personal happiness.

Here is the daily 10-minute routine that will change the way you approach life forever (click image for audio):

If you would like to go for optimum results as explained in the book, I recommend balancing out your system before starting the 10-minute daily energy exercise routines. This gives you the best chance for success. When you self-heal with Reiki, it can be quite a tiring experience to begin with as you are detoxing your mind and body. When you remove the negative energy it has to flow somewhere, you may therefore find yourself crying a lot during your first session – or you may find yourself sleeping a lot more. I would therefore recommend that you chose the most “unhectic” time in your year to start this process, i.e. not when you are about to go on summer holiday with the family and not at Christmas.

Guaranteed focus and success

“How to Get Fit with Reiki and Music” provides motivational combination to give your training and fitness regime guaranteed focus and success.  Aside from providing you with a balanced, focused and motivated mindset, the symbiosis of Reiki and music gives you that extra push. The force from within you never thought you had.

How to Get Fit with Reiki and Music presents a revolutionary approach to exercise that will keep you motivated for good.

Energy Work

Through your Energy Work/Reiki you will master the discipline of self-control promoting the awareness of your own potential and usage of energy. It not only helps to build up bodily reserves of strength and resistance, and to control and cure disorders, but also has the ability to promote vitality, rejuvenate the body and stimulate intelligence.

  • Centering
  • Energizing

Ancient methods in modern times

Based on the principles of Tendai Buddhism and Taoism for meditation and internal energy cultivation, Reiki was initially taught as an aid in self-healing. As such it can help in strengthening the body, harmonizing your emotions and calming your mind.  The purpose of the daily energy exercises is to activate, circulate, ground and channel energy also known as qi.  Qi is the energy inherent in all things. When practiced every day for just 10 minutes, Reiki can become a powerful tool for transformation and self cultivation. Many people who practice Reiki have reported remarkable changes in their overall health and energy levels as well as improved self-esteem and emotional outlook. Reiki is simple and easy to learn and can be practiced anywhere as it requires no equipment and just enough space to sit down in.

Energy Exercises Guide - a 10-minute routine to double your energy reserves, give you focus and help you find calm. With step-by-step instructions and illustrations.

Every workout is a breakthrough

Whether you are going through a physiotherapy program, training for a marathon or event or striving to improve your health and physique, this ingenious combination will help you get rid of bad habits, break behavioral patterns leading to lethargy and failure, and spur you on to set new benchmarks in your physical abilities. Through a few easy-to-learn techniques, this guide will give you the drive to get up a challenging hill. This hill can be both physical and psychological. This facilitating combo will support you from the start when you are defining your goals and planning out your schedule, right through to staying motivated.

The power of music

“There is a charm: a power that sways the breast Bids every passion, revel or be still, Inspires with rage or all your cares dissolves, Can sooth distraction and almost despair – That power is music”. – Armstrong, 1774

There is no denying the motivational power of music

  • Transporter of emotions
  • Fuel to your soul
  • Inspiration for dreams

I will be compiling a list of music suitable for jogging and aerobic exercises. When the click here button is live it means the list is available, otherwise I am still putting it together so feel free to contact me in the meantime.

All the hard work has been done for you.

All you have to do is get changed and turn the music up!

Through the symbiosis of Reiki and music, you will find that magic “kick” to propel you around the track or keep you pedaling up the hill. You will be able to dig deep down inside you to your “center of energy” as you disassociate from the physical limitations of your body and soar to mind-blowing lengths.

Reviews:

“An awesome, inspiring book and fab idea to combine the 2 tools of reiki and music to achieve what you want.” – Martha

“I just wanted to write to say how enlightening your guide has been. I have found it really easy to follow and beautifully explained and though it was written as a guide to getting fit I have found so much wisdom in your chapter on vibrations, wisdom that has really resonated with me in my particular situation with my 14 year marriage to a negatively charged selfish man. Thank you!” – Stacey

“The book is exactly right for helping people through life crises. The Reiki really helps you to focus. I thought I had a lot of  willpower, I recently completed a 5k run for charity, but then I seemed to lose my drive. I found this guide at just the right time. Everything is so much easier now.” – Alex

Signs of a Burnout

Burning the candle at both ends?
5 signs that you may be chronically fatigued because your body is on constant ALERT mode. If you are, here are some steps to reverse the effects.

Are you burning your candle at both ends?

I never believed or paid any attention to people who told me that I’d burn out. “Be careful, you’ll burn out at some stage if you carry on like this!” I thought I could go on forever working like the fury, fitting into other people’s schedules but never stopping to take time out for myself – what  waste of time I would think. If it wasn’t productive, I didn’t do it. Then I stopped and looked at myself. I had been scurrying for so long I had forgotten what I liked to do, what my favourite meal was, how to dress nicely when not at work, how to simply have fun for no reason, I was constantly tired and worried and anxious… does this sound familiar?

What are the signs of a burnout?

Tiredness

An obvious one. Even though you’ve had 6+ hours sleep. You become chronically fatigued even if you have a lie-in or two lie-ins because your body is saturated with free radicals and toxins caused by stress. Your body is unable to let the energy flow freely or the nutrients to be digested properly because your system is on constant ALERT mode.

wellness harrogate

Short attention span

You are struggling to concentrate on your work. Your mind flits constantly and is easily distracted. Could be too much caffeine or the hangover, but your fatigued mind needs a proper rest – that does not include flicking through social media for an hour!

Workaholic

Are you constantly pushing yourself to do, do, do because you haven’t achieved what you wanted in life and think that working hard is the answer?

wellness harrogate

Emotionally exhausted

Are you feeling empty. Do you feel sad or even depressed? Are you short-tempered when you don’t mean to be. You are drained. Are you retreating into your turtle shell. Can’t face the world?

Low self-esteem

Putting others first. Don’t do nice things for yourself because you don’t think you deserve them. Constantly saying negative things to yourself. You are literally dragging yourself down.

What to do to avoid a crash and burn

Give yourself some love

You need to start respecting yourself and give yourself a break. Recognise your accomplishments. Work smart not hard.

wellness harrogate

Try meditation, yoga, breathing classes – release the stress that is clogging up your body. Let it out through exercise, cut back the hours you work, stop, you will be more productive and less stressed!

Me time – chillax

animal cat face close up felineIt may sound obvious but try to cut back on work relax on a regular basis. Your mind and body need to refuel.

Keep a diary of how you are feeling so you can monitor if you are feeling more in charge of yourself again or if you are still experiencing fatigue and anxiety – then it’s time to get some therapy from a professional. It is worth it, because you are worth it.

Create positive daily rituals

A nice slow wake-up before the chaos of the day. If you are not so tired you can get up a little earlier, fit in a little stretch, 10 minutes quirt time to get your head sorted (or stroke the cat or dog), a yummy breakfast, long shower, wear something nice.

Take a walk at lunch, meet up with friends instead of working late, have a nice bath or go for a foot massage. Say nice things to yourself. Create an easy achievement list and a wish list of some treats you can do just because you want to! Repeat 3-5 positive affirmations (things you are grateful for and positive things about yourself) when you get up and before going to sleep. Try aromatherapy with a burner in your room or crystal healing grids… get creative!

Act now before it is too late

Don’t ignore your tired state, it will not simply go away. If you leave it too late your fatigued and over-stressed body will develop other ailments and long-lasting problem or damage. A holiday cannot sort this out, it will simply be a time for your body to let the illnesses in instead of a time to be enjoyed. You need a little holiday time everyday. You need to get the work life balance right. Instate the law of Kintalini into your personal life. Get your chi flowing and develop a more positive attitude about yourself. You don’t have to be perfect. Being happy is much better and more satisfying!

 

 

 

Third Time Lucky

Third Time Lucky
A fateful encounter that lead to an introduction to a powerful range of products. Because you are unlikely to find the Forever Aloe Vera products on the high street, allow me to introduce you to the Medicine Plant…

I had already been around the stalls twice at the Health and Healing Festival, but something compelled me to go around a third time: I was convinced I had missed something important and that it would reveal itself to me the third time I went around.

Tempted as I was to see if I actually had an aura or to have the magical tarot cards tell me if I was going to be rich and famous (and if so how long did I have to wait…) my instinct was not truly drawn to these prophetic stalls. In fact, the only stall I stopped at was a very unassuming one that I really was not interested in. It just had a simple display of Aloe Vera products. Without even realising it, I had stopped at perhaps the only stall at the whole fair that was not affiliated with the words “spiritual” or “celestial” in any way. Perhaps that is why it stood out from the crowd. It was down-to-earth.

Aloe vera products from Forever
Aloe vera products from Forever

I had already used Aloe in the past either as a refreshing drink or a soothing gel, so I was not expecting anything new to jump out at me. But this range was extraordinary, they offered aloe vera as a drink gel, food supplement sachets and pills, shaving foam, lip balm, protective hair spray, eye cream, cleanser, beauty skincare products, and last but not least, veterinary preparations to help heal our furry friends. And the list goes on.

Forever aloe vera products

The lady running this hidden gem of a stall was Fiona Walmsley. She was friendly, open and instantly likeable. She had a familiarity about her I could not quite place. We chatted, exchanged details and promised to meet up. Still unsure as to whether that was the fateful stall I was meant to have discovered on my third and final sweep of the fair I left feeling satisfied and content.

Fiona Walmsley
Fiona with Forever Living Products

A couple of weeks later I met with Fiona, she gave me some Aloe Vera products to sample and some literature on both the plant and the company she represents. Because you are unlikely to meet her or find the Forever Aloe Vera products on the high street, I shall introduce you to the power of the Medicine Plant and all that it can do for you and your loved ones (including pets) in a sequence of posts.

Although she did not proclaim any wizardy or magic, the journey she set me upon was full of the incredible and wondrous magic found only in dreams and wished for repeatedly in our prayers. Third time lucky indeed!

The 4 Doctors of Wellness

The doctors for happiness, movement, diet and quiet all work together to provide a healthy recipe for balanced vitality and good health. Try a dose.

The Only 4 Doctors You Will Ever Need

courtesy of

Graham Whitehead Health

First and foremost, I cannot take the credit for this concept and system, but through my training with the CHEK (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology) Institute I have applied it to my own life and I have coached numerous clients through the 4-step process.

Dr Happiness

Wellness - Dr HappinessWhat makes you happy? What makes you feel good? What gives you a sense of purpose? What are you passionate about? What would be your chosen career?

These are some of the questions you can ask yourself. Your Dr Happy is always there to lead us to a life that fulfils our individual wants and needs. Furthermore, it can advise us if we are leading a life that does not maintain our core values and if this appears to be the case then every facet of our life can become a burden.


Dr Diet

We all know diet is a key part of our health and wellbeing. The quality of our food and drink we consume will affect our energy levels, emotions, physical health, mental clarity, productivity, performance, and overall health.

Wellness - Dr DietThe interesting thing about Dr Diet is the fact that what we think is healthy isn’t and what we think isn’t healthy is. There is an awful lot of confusion out there regarding our perceptions of healthy foods. What I can tell you is that everyone’s nutritional demands will vary.

Time and time again when working with people individually I have found that when the diet is deficient there simply is not enough energy or clarity of mind to initiate and sustain the changes needed for self-healing.

Dr Quiet

Dr Quiet is the chief physician making it the most important of the 4 Doctor.

Dr Quiet is responsible for energy management and recovery. One of the most common Meditation - Dr Quietissues with Dr Quiet is sleep. People simply aren’t getting enough sleep. You can make some big improvements in your health if you get adequate amounts of sleep. I recommend getting around 8 hours of sleep per night. Timing is also crucial because our body’s circadian rhythms are related to the rising and falling off the sun. 10:00pm is an optimal time to go to sleep by as the time from
10pm – 2am is the stage in our sleep of physical repair and 2 am – 6 am is dedicated to cognitive and mental repair.

Dr Movement

Dr Movement is related to our exercise. Do you work out? Or do you work in? Working in is the body accumulating energy through activities such as yoga, tai chi, stretching, massage etc. Working out is the body expending energy, such as cycling, lifting weights, running, or playing sports.Wellness - Dr Movement

Quite often people do not really have the energy to work out because their body is short of resources and is not getting enough Dr Quiet, Dr Diet, and Dr Happy. When the 3 Doctors mentioned are balanced we can begin to exercise in a way where the body receives a positive response from exercise. Without the right amount of movement, we suffer not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

I am sure you can begin to see how the 4 Doctors integrate with one another. Day in and day out I see how people’s daily challenges in life, occupation, relationships, and ambitions are heavily related to imbalances in their 4 Doctors. It is vital for health and wellbeing that the 4 Doctors are balanced.

Be your own doctor – the only prescriptions you’ll be writing are the ones that come naturally or free: happiness, exercise, good food and meditation.
