Energy

Love is The Energy of Life sign with a beach

There are two kinds of energy, potential and manifest.  Before you think this is going to be boring, bear with me!

Potential energy is waiting to be expressed.  If it waits too long it stagnates and if it stagnates in our bodies it creates dis-ease.  (That’s not a typo!)

When energy is freed to move, it is manifested.  It can be manifested through intentions, meaning “If I have an idea and I put it into motion, I’m freeing up energy.”

Money is energy in material form.  It waits to be freed to create opportunities, experiences and sustenance.  Saving is great, but dying with stagnated energy in the bank probably isn’t the best idea.  Bequeathing the fruits of labor for the next generation to use isn’t a bad plan, but using money to do good works is a great idea.

Physical movement frees energy.  Our jobs keep us seated a lot of the time.  Stagnated sitting creates pain in the low back and digestive issues.  Take it from me after years of sitting in the therapist’s chair!

What I experience in Reiki and Reflexology practice is the movement of energy in clients who rise from the table feeling cleared and rebooted.  Therapeutic essential oils do the same clearing.  Even moderate movement frees up energy.

Love is the purest energy and can be expressed interpersonally, in work and in everything we do.  If expressing love is the intention, the actions that come from it will bring positive change.

Move your booty!  Don’t ruminate in your head! Have the intentions of embodying love energy and freeing potential energy every chance you get.   You will bring light into your world…

With love, Rosanne

An Introduction to Reflexology

As a healing professional, Ms. Rosanne (Roseanne) Bostonian, PhD, draws on a variety of wellness methodologies to support each individual patient. Ms. Rosanne Bostonian, PhD, finds that many of her patients respond well to the technique of foot reflexology.

Reflexology operates on the belief that different points on the extremities, including the feet and hands, correspond to the body’s organs and systems. A reflexologist will use these connections to affect internal functioning by applying pressure to specified distal points.

The reflexologist typically refers to a special foot chart that identifies which points affect which organs. By selecting the points likely to address a patient’s concern, the reflexologist helps the body to fall back into its natural balance. Many patients report feeling more relaxed and sleeping better after reflexology treatment.

The reflexology treatment typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. The reflexologist typically uses his or her own thumb and finger to press on the specified spot, though some may also incorporate rubber balls or other tools to facilitate results. The process is non-invasive and considered generally safe for most clients, including the very young and the very old.

Reflexology as a Way of Opening Meridians, Achieving Wellness

Rosanne (Roseanne) Bostonian, Ph.D., is a respected Florham Park, New Jersey, holistic health practitioner who emphasizes listening to the Earth as a way of attuning to spiritual, health, and emotional issues. Rosanne Bostonian, Ph.D., also focuses on techniques of achieving positive energy flow through foot reflexology and the opening of meridians.

Hand and foot reflexology is the foundation of a number of healing techniques that reflect the existence of acupuncture meridian points running the length of the body. Those meridian points at the extremities are most easily pinpointed and employed as a way of healing things such as stress, fatigue, and general pain.

With the hands, the thumbs connect with the energy pathways of the chest and lungs, while the index finger has a relationship with the abdomen and conditions such as gas, cramping, and irritable bowel. Proper manipulation of the digits can have a sought-after effect throughout the body.

Giving the toes direct contact is one of the best ways of relieving headaches, as the toes connect with the skull, sinuses, brain, and jaw. Massaging a line of toes, from the biggest to the smallest, is effective in addressing issues of the liver, spleen, bladder, and stomach. It’s important to remember that each individual is unique and finding a reflexology approach that works best for his or her specific symptoms often involves trial and error in the presence of an experienced practitioner.

Foot Reflexology

I promise I don’t have a foot fetish, but if there’s a diagnostic category that isn’t quite as kinky, I’d be there.  I am studying Foot Reflexology and will be adding it to the services I provide to clients in the near future.

There is a mini-you mapped out on the bottom of your feet.  It’s referred to as a homunculus, or a “little man.”  As it turns out, the meridians (10 in all) run the entire length of the body, so stimulating zones on your tootsies actually goes much further than just feeling heavenly.  It actually impacts the entire body.

I’ve been enjoying this modality as a recipient over many years. I have never (and I repeat NEVER) been as relaxed and clear as I am after these treatments.  It’s as if the practitioner hits a “reset button” that sets things back in balance.

I’ve actually had mini-vacations on the table, feeling like I’ve been somewhere else and returned reluctantly at the end of the session.  Stay tuned for more feedback regarding adding this service to my Reiki protocol.  Should I call it “R & R with R?”  (Reflexology and Reiki with Rosanne 🙂

We are all operating so far out of the healthy zone of work and rest.  It seems to be that work, more work and in our spare time, work, is the protocol for every day.  It’s like walking up the down escalator.  There never seems to be enough progress to justify the extreme effort.

The paradox is to slow down, not speed up.  I feel as if “more becomes less,” less efficiency, less enjoyment and less fulfillment.

Ponder this and think about your amazing feet. They have taken you through every step of your life, sometimes in shoes that were stylish, but hurt like H—.  They are your connection to the Earth and they contain the seeds of consciousness for your entire being.  They need more than an occasional pedi… and so do you.

With love,  Rosanne
