The solar plexus chakra is one of the most commonly blocked chakras
This chakra is extremely important because it helps me to direct you toward your goals. It allows you to have control over your thoughts and emotional responses, set healthy boundaries, and be at peace with yourself.
Trying to connect with my ocean waves drum so I can create the beautiful sound of peace and serenity of ocean waves during Reiki sessions. Being at the ocean can be spiritual and healing, so I’m adding sound to my Reiki sessions on Tuesdays during in person and long distance sessions.

Lately, I been spending a lot of time grounding on the beach. At least 3 times a week walking barefoot in the sand. I always noticed how well I felt when I was on the beach. In the morning my body is like the tin man, I’m so stiff and achy that it takes some time for my body to warm up. But 15 mins in on the beach, I find my body starts to feel good, I’m actually running around. No pain, no discomfort of any sort not even wheezing. On my beach days, I also noticed at night that my husband doesn’t need to tap my back. The inflammation in my back and on my wrist seem to go down and I sleep all night. The next morning, I wake up early and feel well rested. I’m seeing a pattern of this and decided to do some research.
When you have auto immune diseases like myself, I have 4 of them, you will understand when I say we’re always looking for ways to heal our bodies. In what I found I was experiencing is called Grounding and I went in hard wanting to know everything about it.
Grounding is also called earthing, and it’s a therapeutic technique that involves you doing activities that electrically reconnect you to the earth. Activities like walking barefoot, being in water, laying on the ground, and using grounding equipment. I haven’t purchased any because of my beach access here in Hawaii.
The great thing about Grounding is it’s free! You don’t have to order it online you don’t have to go to a luxe spa to receive this service. You can just walk out your door to the mailbox barefoot. You can go in your yard and just step on the grass. If you live near a beach you can go in walk around. It’s great for babies and kids. Get them out of those hard shoes and let their little feet run around free. Watch how relax they will be when they go inside. Definitely helps with crying. Give your body 30 mins barefoot and watch how well you feel. If you want to do it longer definitely go for it.
I just wanted to share this information because I found so much relief from it. If you’re reading this please share it with someone who’s dealing with any auto immune diseases, chronic pains and any other stress or anxiety issues. I think I want to do my sessions with my clients on the beach to help them as we go deep in conversations. This technique can help calm them.
I just started using my Singing Bowl on Jan 1st. I know that the Buddhist practitioners started using it for greater amount of peace and intuition in their daily lives through meditation. I know that singing bowls are found outside the temples and monasteries of the Himalayan mountains. They are used as tools for meditation or alternative treatment for various illnesses like chronic pain. As you know I suffer with 4 auto immune diseases. So learning and mastering this technique is very important me.
My goal is to bring relief to myself so I can start helping others on my journey.
