There Was No White Light: The journey from heart attack through recovery
In the following days I performed another 2 shorter healing sessions she was already feeling much better , and after that her doctor saw on the ultrasonography that the 7-cm cyst was completely gone! The second one was a case closer to me - someone in my family was having intense abdominal pains and severediarrhea that day probably an alimentary intoxication from spoiled aliments. She took some medication, but to no avail So I asked her to sit down in an armchair, and instructed her how to relax and breathe calmly, with her eyes closed. I began passing her symbols mainly, power symbols and calming ones - and after 30 minutes her abdominal pain was gone, and she went to bed and slept soundly that night.
The next day all the trouble was gone. As a doctor, and as a holistic medicine practitioner, I believe Reiki can be one of the many powerful healing systems - too good to be described even in many, many words - and I am opened to dialogues and sharing experiences with others. She was told she would receive 8 sessions of chemotherapy every other week and she would need to look for a wig by the second treatment for she would lose her hair.
I began to send long distance Reiki to her in December.
But after her first session of chemo, she needed daily injections of a drug to keep her white blood count up while the chemo wiped out her immune system. Since I am a nurse and live close to her I saw her daily for two weeks to give her injections until she was confident to do them herself. I of course offered her Reiki each visit. The first visit was between her first and second chemo session and she had just returned from shopping for wigs, none of which she bought because she did not like any.
As each session of chemo passed, her doctor and all of the other "bald" patients in the department where astounded she was not losing her hair. He was totally amazed and said he never saw anything like it! My Niece is now getting her radiation and doing fine.

She had minimal sickness after the chemo sessions, where most people suffer tremendously with nausea and vomiting. The miracle is in having no hair loss and also minimal sickness during the hard doses of chemotherapy. Reiki and Prostate Cancer With the thought of promoting Reiki, I called an assisted-living center to offer an Introduction to Reiki class with free mini-Reiki sessions. When I asked the social director if he was familiar with Reiki he said, "Let me tell you my story," and proceeded to tell me that he had been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer.
His massage therapist, Reiki Level II, had been told by a psychic that he the social director needed to receive three treatments in close succession by three Reiki healers. I quickly set things in motion and our team performed Reiki on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. No other treatment was given. Prior to treatment his test confirmed he was 4. The Monday after we completed the three treatments he was again tested.
On the following Wednesday he called to say the test results showed 0. He remarked that in all of his life the test results were never that low. I am so honored to have been a part of his healing. I feel honored to be called by Reiki, a major part of my life. Reiki Heals Infection A friend of mine went into the hospital for some reconstructive surgery due to breast cancer. After a couple of weeks, I saw her husband and inquired about her health. He was devastated and told me that she had developed a severe infection and had been running a fever of degrees for several days and the doctors did not know where it was coming from.
He said they believed her organs could begin to shutdown. I asked permission to visit her the next day, which he later called to tell me she accepted, and I began to send Reiki to her immediately. Upon my arrival the next morning, she looked wonderful! I asked her how she was and she said it was amazing. She woke up that morning and her temperature was completely normal. She felt great! The doctors had no explanation for her healing. She then asked me to explain Reiki to her and before I had finished, she took my hands and placed them on the site of her infection, closed her eyes and said, "Just do it.
I thank God everyday for her health and this beautiful gift of Reiki. Uteral Malignancy Healed My workmate Denise was diagnosed with a growth in her uterus. They took blood samples, biopsies, and ultrasounds. They showed a malignancy. She is just twenty-one and has five-year-old twin daughters and is one of the hardest workers I have seen, completing four certificates in tourism and a diploma in youth counseling in the years since having her daughters.
She also works full time. I gave her two short treatments of Reiki hands-on and also each night I sent her Reiki.
I also asked friends to pray for her and told them we had a month to heal her before the surgery to remove the growth. I also asked Archangel Raphael to heal her. The surgery was scheduled for this week and she had to go in for a pre-op consultation. They couldn't find the lump. They redid all the tests and searched and they found a little bit of scar tissue where the lump had been and no further signs in her blood. Thank you to all who became involved and helped this dear girl, and Thank You to Raphael. Reiki Heals Stroke I recently had a patient who suffered from having a stroke.
He experienced a mild weakness on his left side and great difficulty walking because he could not balance, was dizzy and had double vision. He fell a lot and couldn't walk outdoors. Also, he reported that he felt like worms were crawling in his head. He saw a neurologist, neuro surgen, and a balance therapist with no improvement and in fact his symptoms got worse as he began vomiting. I started giving him Reiki treatments and cranialsacreal therapy, followed by balancing exercises.
After four treatments, this 83 year old gentelman recovered completely. Now he can drive, and go for walks with no complaints - no double vision and his head is back to normal. Each time he recieved a treatment, he went into deep relaxation within 30 seconds and said it was a heavenly feeling. Reiki can do miracles. I was not given a good prognosis. With extensive Chemo treatments, I stood a good chance- without- maybe I had months.
I had just lost my husband within two years, I had two adorable kids ages 12 and At that time, they had lost their Dad and now Mom was real sick. I was not a happy camper, but wanted all best odds in my favor so I decided to go with the chemo. After my second chemo treatment, I saw a long time friend of mine. Her family and she herself have dealt with this situation before within her family.
She came up to me and said " I am not going to send you flowers, I am going to come over to your home and do Reiki on you as my gift. I wanted to live and I wanted to do anything to make all options work, so I accepted her offer. After the first treatment, I felt relaxed, calmed, and very good.
Almost, rejuvenated. My Reiki Master had said to me after the second treatment she had seen many little black balls firing through my abdomen while treating me. I thought this strange. That night, about five hours after she had left, I had an experience in the bathroom, which is hard to describe. However, after completed, I felt strongly that "all the cancer was gone out of my body". I called a nurse and a doctor and after tests, they agreed that all the cancer was gone, but could not explain this since I had had only two chemo treatments and they thought I would need many more.
I also have to say that my faith has been renewed and I look forward to a long and happy future.
Tree-Poaching Is On the Rise
I began my journey with Reiki that night and I am now a cancer survivor for a third time over 26 years. I plan on seeing my children graduate from college, get married and have my grandchildren. To date, I am about to celebrate my two-year anniversary from that surgery and I am feeling good and going on with life. I have introduced my family members to Reiki and I have progressed to a Reiki Two level. There is a lot to this, and I will continue to practice and heal. I am living proof that it works. My doctors cannot explain how well I am doing- but they suggest " just keep on doing whatever it is!
Rand: A few months ago I had an abscessed tooth. I had an appointment scheduled for a root canal and crown when I realized that I hadn't signed up for dental insurance at work and that the bill would be more than I could afford. I asked my husband to try some Reiki on my tooth the side of my face. The pain was gone. I called the dentist to cancel the appointment and he suggested that I come in just to see. I went in, he x-rayed, and there was no problem. Since then the tooth has twinged every now and then, but I've had no more problems with the kind of pain I'd been having.
Reiki Heals Hearing Several months ago when I was still a level 2 practitioner and my husband was level 1, we offered a friend of ours a Reiki treatment in barter for watching our Umbrella Cockatoo, Chela and our cockatiel, Fred. Before the treatment she kept asking if we could do something for her shoulder and while we made no promises, we told her that she would, at the very least, feel much more relaxed.
When the treatment was over, our friend got a very quizzical look on her face and asked me to whisper something in her left ear. I just sort of shrugged and whispered something inconsequential that made little sense. Her eyes LIT up and she repeated it back to me. It was at this point that she told us that she had been clinically deaf in that ear since she was 4. She says that her shoulder is still the same, but now she hears like a bat. Pet Healing with Reiki I am so grateful to be able to share Reiki with those around me.
My youngest daughter became so interested as she observed the effect Reiki had on me that she began to request that I read my Reiki books to her at night. At age eleven now, she has been attuned to Level II. We have woven Reiki into all aspects of our day and are blessed by it. We found an injured cat recently and brought it to the vet clinic.
She had lost most of an ear and had an open wound down her entire left side, about two inches wide. Remarkably, there was no infection. She was glad to have attention and was responsive. We named her Hope. With only a ten-minute session that evening, the next day the exposed tissue had turned from a dark red color to light pink. With just a few minutes each day her healing intensified.
The wound was so responsive to Reiki. Within twelve hours after a mini-session the healing was visible to the eye. I am continuously reminded of the gift that Reiki is for our lives. Many blessings to you all Burn Healed Dear William, One morning I was making myself a cup of tea and while pouring the hot water into the cup, I accidentally poured the boiling water over my hand!
In agony, I ran it under cold water, then grabbed ice from the freezer and held it onto my hand while doing Reiki on it. I had to repeat the ice and then continued with the Reiki for about minutes while having a phone conversation. When I hung up I looked at my hand and saw that there was absolutely no sign of a burn! I was so very grateful because years ago I had a similar accident and had to spend the night with my hand in an ice bucket and went through all the blistering etc.
I seem to have success with "right away" Reiki. I have staved off several nasty bruises and a very painful banged knee by applying Reiki immediately to the injured area! In , I slipped and fell on a patch of ice as I was leaving work. More herniations, pain, a broken arm and another trauma to contend with. I spent nearly 2 years in bed, depressed, many pills to numb the pain, and was quite a mess. Then I went to a high school reunion, as my friend urged me to, and she helped me have the strength to go. She told me about taking Reiki, and explained what it was.
Desperate to be helped without pills, we both took the class and I could not believe the difference! It was like a miracle. My strength got better, my depression lifted, and I had positive energy, and began letting go of the negative feeling I had for so long! I am not fully healed, but can walk, even swim a bit, take an arthritis aqua class, walk on a treadmill which is a miracle in itself for 15 to 20 minutes a day, I also do not eat much red meat, I cannot believe the difference! A miracle indeed! I have Reiki II and practice on self and others and everyone I touch feels so wonderful and transformed by it.
I cannot speak enough of this great art. It will always be a great part of my life. I will be taking more classes in the future. My hands, in an instant, turned to ice. It was a feeling I can't really describe. I couldn't ignore this. I stopped and my hands continued to be ice which he felt and was stunned. Although he felt the cold, he was reluctant to go the doctor, so I dragged him kicking and screaming. This was my first and most memorable experience with Reiki. It still amazes me, and this was over a year ago. I know we crossed paths for a reason.
Light and love,.
White blood cell
On New Year's morning, during the last gasps of the New Year's party approximately 5 a. His friends took him to the local hospital. He came back and had not broken his leg but had torn his ligament, which is potentially more serious. I placed my hands around the injured area on his leg just above his knee.
Immediately my hands began to heat up. I would shift positions around, but it was clear there was some serious energy flowing through my hands. He said it felt very warm and tingly. I kept at it for roughly twenty minutes when suddenly what felt like a bolt of lightning went through my hands and into his leg. It was not in any way painful but shocked both of us, to where I pulled my hands away and he jumped.
What happened, as near as I could figure after speaking with other Reiki healers, is that the injury was fairly substantial and the healing energy simply wasn't going through fast enough. I asked him how he felt and he said the pain was almost gone; it was no longer throbbing and stabbing as it was before. He profusely thanked me and said it felt so much better. After that, I gave him twice-daily Reiki treatments, although no more bolts went through me.
The hospital had told him it would be an eight- to ten-week healing period. I heard later through our host in Acapulco that his injury was substantially healed in five weeks, according to his doctor in Mexico City. But beneath its hazy synths and electronics are songs of endurance and inner peace, of settling after a flurry of activity. Addressing a younger version of herself, the year-old sings of the carefree young and their mistrust of those defeated by time.
Jazz Monroe. Amo is a way of exploring that, even down to the title itself. This self-titled record, a loose but beautifully crafted collection of folk-rock songs, explores the kinds of anxieties intrinsic to the modern age — the longing to be at once noticed and invisible; the paralysing effects of limitless information, and the desire to do good versus the desire to be seen doing good.
Alexandra Pollard. Helen Brown. The perma-brilliant James Blake has flooded his fourth album — Assume Form — with euphoric sepia soul and loved-up doo-wop.

His trademark intelligence, honesty and pin-drop production remain intact. The variety and scale of ambition on this album is breathtaking. Fans will be surprised to discover Tracey sings almost as much as he raps, in pleasingly gruff tones. The album title of the year gives us an image of Brexit Britain trashed by Old Etonians David Cameron, Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg, but the fifth studio work from the punk duo has more than social commentary to offer.
Chris Harvey. The tension is stormy: imagine a mid-period Fleetwood Mac song, covered by Cat Power. The album takes in everything from jazz, funk and soul to punk and heavy rock, plus three carefully chosen features. Solange Knowles has never been coy about the intent behind her music.
Beautiful arrangements and seamless production notwithstanding, you get the sense, each time she drop a project, that it serves a distinct, zeitgeist-shifting purpose. And where better to dream than from the comfort of your own digs? Kuba Shand-Baptiste. Mark Beaumont.
Tracks are at once astute and deeply personal in how they capture vignettes of everyday life and spin them into important lessons. Dave spends Psychodrama addressing issues caused by the generations who came before him. By the end of the album, he sounds like a figurehead for the hopeful future. At her best, Sigrid throws out precision-tooled high notes like icicle javelins into vast, blue Scandi-produced skies. Then she growls like an Icelandic volcano preparing to disrupt western civilisation until we sort ourselves out.
Lux Prima was born just over a decade ago from a drunken phone call from Karen O to Danger Mouse — real name Brian Joseph Burton — during which the pair vowed they would work on something together. Danger Mouse is known for genre-hopping collaborations with artists such as Beck, the Black Keys and CeeLo Green, and he applies that approach here, too: the album is an impressive mix of blissed-out synths, psych-rock guitars and trippy hip-hop beats.
Lux Prima is an accomplished record — proof that two wildly different minds can work seamlessly together. This is an ambitious creation, meticulously crafted and assembled. For a start, the range of guest performers is a cornucopia of contemporary soul and hip-hop collaborators: vocalists Moses Sumney, Roots Manuva, Heidi Vogel, Grey Reverend and Tawiah; strings player Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and keyboardist Dennis Hamm — both of whom have worked with Flying Lotus and Thundercat.
To Believe, however, feels more expansive in reach. Elisa Bray. There are moments that recall her Communion labelmate Ben Howard, on his latest album, Noonday Dream, and others that nod to the quiet stoicism of Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. Patrick Smith. Here, Lewis does what she does best: adds the glossy sparkle of Hollywood and a sunny Californian sheen to melancholy and nostalgia, with her most luxuriantly orchestrated album yet.
Slide guitars give way to violas, which usher in eerie synths. Organs crop up throughout, evoking both Renaissance music and a fairground attraction. The title track is pure euphoria, as restless synths of a Utah Saints or Orbital rave break into swelling bass and melody. Six months after the release of Oxnard, Anderson. Paak returns with another Dr Dre-produced record, Ventura. Where the former was overflowing with choppy, experimental sounds, guest appearances and clumsy attempts at Gil Scott Heron-esque revolutionary lyrics, the sequel — recorded around the same time — streamlines. Rather than being an album of Oxnard offshoots, Ventura instead borrows heavily from.
Considering how few artists have such command of their craft as. Jack Shepherd. Familiar faces and themes serve as his trademarks. Over all of it, he raps with an easy flow in gruff yet honeyed tones. Above all, he is conscious of what family means to him, and so bookends the album with a poem from him to his mother Jean, and one from his mother to him. No one could accuse Lizzo of holding back. Not when it comes to her voice — which is raw and rowdy, so laden with personality even the vulnerable moments are a joy to listen to — and certainly not when it comes to her message of unabashed self-love.
When Lizzo played Coachella earlier this week, her set was plagued by technical problems. It seems as likely as Old Man Steptoe dining with the Rees-Mogg, but this new tactic of burying their confrontational gruesomeness beneath a veneer of alt-rock respectability for album three works well for Fat White Family. Tarantino bossa novas and Velvets drones are all imbued with a luminous, cultured seediness, like the entire Cannes Film Festival owning up to its social diseases.
Wonderfully unsettling. Assisted by producer John Hill, whose previous credits include co-writing Portugal. Social Cues is an album where Shultz bares his soul, and apparently shakes off a few demons in the process. SOAK reaches to outsiders once again on her new album. In a way, Grim Town portrays the journey from adolescence into young adulthood — with all the introspection, resignation and wide-eyed forays into love that entails.
She was deeply affected by the deaths, and would no doubt have been devastated by recent events in Northern Ireland as well. It sounds like The Cranberries found some kind of closure in this last record. Hopefully fans will, too. On her third record, Aldous Harding combines the gothic folk of her self-titled debut with the dramatically intimate tones of her follow-up album Party. The New Zealand artist seems to derive a particular glee from unsettling her audience. At an age where the pressure is on to have everything worked out, Harding sounds delightfully free.
Her whispering, spectral delivery and deeply personal lyrics are the key to this. Throughout, Collard exhibits his extraordinary voice, which swoops to a devilishly low murmur or soars to an ecstatic falsetto. Dedicated covers the full, but generic, spectrum of relationships: dizzying love, lust, and break-ups.
There Is No Reason to Cross the U.S. by Train. But I Did It Anyway.
It is the perfect upbeat end to an album of polished pop. Perhaps this will put her at the top where she belongs. The production here is superb. But it was worth the wait. A track masterpiece, the album features the likes of Anderson. Paak, Little Dragon, David Lynch, and Solange, and serves up a hot, textural mix of hip-hop, psychedelia, funk, soul, jazz and electro. Ellie Harrison. Instead, his cold grime sonics are rendered down to their no-frills essentials — brutalist blocks of sad angular melodies and hard, spacious drums.
The result is a quintessentially London record, as dark and moody as it is brash and innovative. Bruce Springsteen seems to have told almost every tale in the grand old storybook of American mythologies, except perhaps one: a wide-eyed Californian dreamer finds the Golden State turns sour and flees back east, to some romantic speck of a town, to pine and rehabilitate.
Where most rock superstars sink into trad tedium by 69, Springsteen is still crafting sophisticated paeans of depth and illumination, a rock grandmaster worthy of the accolade. A must-have for anyone who has a heart. A revolving door of female vocalists A-listers, indie darlings like Angel Olsen and unsung songwriters deliver heartbroken lines over big, shiny beats and synths.
It's a style that makes fans of vintage engineering wince, but snags the ear like a fishhook.
Randy Travis - Wikipedia
And those quicksilver hooks just keep coming. A cornucopia of instrumentation is woven into its brisk minute yarn. Help Us Stranger has been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait. Philippe Zdar — one half of the French duo Cassius and producer for the likes of MC Solaar and Phoenix — helps the band reconcile their house and hip-hop influences. The record frequently switches in tone: Banks can be both formidable and vulnerable, accusatory or filled with regret. The way she has structured this record takes the listener through the complicated yet nuanced emotions of a woman who has recently learnt to accept everything she feels.
She embraces her pain, and as a consequence is able to let it go. Roisin O"Connor. By the end of all that, you feel like they deserve a pint. Frontman Corey Taylor, who had just emerged from a toxic relationship when recording this album, addresses feelings of belittlement and inadequacy with unflinching honesty and some of his best vocal work in years. Critics may question how relevant Slipknot are in The overarching sound, production and instrumentation on Eve are outstanding. This is precisely what Rapsody has done — in the most resonant way possible. Swift has a habit of putting her worst foot forward.
Thank goodness that the rest of the album is nothing like that. Where Black America Again was notable for its sharp, observational urgency, Let Love feels far more personal, and softer in tone. This is Del Rey at her most assertive — personally, if not politically. But it is gratifying to hear her take control. Maybe Nas never really lost it, but The Lost Tapes II sounds like an artist rediscovering his love for hip hop in the most joyous and satisfying way.
It feels a lot like a third coming. The latter is a wide-eyed, strings-laden gem, its childlike, questing lyrics poignant whatever your age. Just as the preceding art installation invited viewers to enter its vast head of LED lights and wonder, this album does the same. Given our current preoccupation with the Eighties, you could argue that Lost Girls is hardly breaking new ground — and yes, nostalgia is a fairly generic formula.
But listened to as a whole, the album positively thrums with sonic invention, managing to feel both fresh and full of intrigue. Khan once again demonstrates a knack for uncanny storytelling. Three of her past albums have been nominated for Mercurys; expect this to make it four. MUNA might not be a household name yet, but their influence runs through the charts like a stick of rock these days.
Yet for all its darkness, Beneath the Eyrie is brimming with the kind of melody that we expect from these indie-rock giants from the late Eighties. But where the Nordic Music Prize-winning Blood Bitch was packed with visceral imagery and disarming sonics, the themes of The Practice of Love are encased in a warm cocoon of poetry, blissed-out circling synths and trance-like Nineties beats.
Take the title track, whose spoken-word monologue morphs into a recorded conversation in which a woman discusses how childlessness in her late thirties affects her place in society, over the sparsest electronica. This is Metronomy at their most ambitious and pleasurably weird.
