Reiki, The Immune System and Stigmata
I have recently read information about the effects of immunity on stigmata, a most fascinating topic. Stigmata is a condition where a person bleeds at the crucifixion sites where Christ was wounded-hands, feet and forehead. The bleeder often identifies with Christ suffering so much they reenact his tortuous event. A National Geographic team has studied the latest stigmatic(only 350 since St Francis in 1220) After drawing blood for examination in the lab, the team discovered the stigmatic "wounds himself, keeps the wounds from getting infected, and heals himself"-all within his/her internal immune response system-all done in the sub conscious!! The Geographic team discovered our own immunity can wound us and heal us. This has brought much insight into prominent auto immune diseases as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis and fibromyalgia(self destructive disorders). Since Reiki brings immunity into balance-effects thymus, bones and stress hormone response, I see it as a state of the art therapy for disease of this kind. My greatest wish as an RN and Reiki Master is to see Western medicine fully embrace mind-body medicine and "start this new practice now." How about you? What are your thoughts?
