The Five Tenets of REIKI

The five tenets of Reiki were adapted by Mikao Usui who was a reader of the works of Emperor Meiji. 

These principles came straight out of Meiji's writings. Usui took these principles a step further and incorporated them into his Reiki practice.  The good news is you do not have to be studying Reiki to apply these principles to your life.  

The first principle is "Just for today, I will not worry."  This is probably the toughest principle listed.  It is hard not to worry about things which we have no control over.  But in meditation and prayer, we can learn to hand those worries over to a higher life force and become more open to trust and have faith about the world we live in.

The second principle is "Just for today, I will not anger."  Sometimes when we get angry, we need to figure out what is causing the real issue.  Is the person who cut in front of you or is it the person in line at the store with ten returns?  Sometimes we can find behavior in other people that mirrors our own self.  That is sometimes hard to accept.  Look at other people as teachers and try to figure out what lesson they are there to teach you.    

The third principle is "I will honor all life."  You should honor all the creations of God.  You can help by planting trees and flowers, appreciating the food you have, the love from your family, the very air you breathe, and all the animals, rocks, and oceans.  

The fourth principle is "I will live my life honestly."  Did you skip the family picnic because you were sick or because you were too afraid to tell Aunt Martha you really didn't want to go?  Ask in prayer for guidance in your dreams.  You must honor the truth of your emotions and not keep it all bottled up inside.  

The fifth principle is "I will give thanks for everything."  Trust that love and happiness are supposed to be in your life and find yourself becoming grateful for the smallest of things and the gift of being here on Earth.

Are We There Yet? Family Vacations with Autistic Children

Wikipedia
Although planning a family vacation with children may make any parents pull out his or her hair, it can be a rewarding experience for everyone in the end. It is no different if you have an autistic child in the family. The important thing to remember is that you need to be prepared for whatever life throws your way. To an autistic child, vacations can be scary and confusing, or they can be a great learning experience, leaving behind wonderful memories the entire family can enjoy.

First, choose your location based on your autistic child's needs. For example, if he or she is sensitive to sound, an amusement park is probably not the best idea. Quieter vacations are possible at small beaches and going camping. Overall, you should be able to find a location that everyone in the family enjoys. Once there, plan out your days accordingly. For example, you may want to see the attractions very early or late in the day to avoid crowds. You also might want to consider taking your vacation during the off-season, if your children's school work will not be disrupted. These give your autistic child more comfort if he or she is nervous in crowded situations, and provides you with peace of mind. When choosing a location, also note how far it is from your home. How will you get there? If you have to deal with an airport, remember that security may have to touch your child and be prepared for this. 

Choose a location and activities that everyone can enjoy, but also that provide learning and social interaction opportunities for your autistic child. For example, a child that does not like touch sensations may enjoy the soft sands of a beach, and the waves can provide a very different kind of feeling for him or her. Being outside, a beach is also a great place for your child to yell without disrupting others. Children who are normally non-responsive may benefit from a museum, where they can ask questions and you can ask questions of them. 

Remember that most people on vacation at the location you choose will have never dealt with autism before. Try to be understanding of their ignorance-but also stick up for your child if he or she is being treated unfairly. Know your child's constitutional laws, and also be willing to compromise. For example, if a restaurant is reluctant to serve you after your child caused a scene there last night, explain the situation and ask if it would be possible to take your food to go, even if this is normally not done. Try not to be rude to people; staring often happens, but instead of snide comments or mean looks, ignore them as much as possible and focus on having a good time with your family

NATURAL CURE FOR PANIC ATTACK - You Don't Need To Suffer

Someone can suffer from panic attacks for various reasons. It might be due to a stressful or traumatic childhood. It could happen suddenly when the person feels anxious, or it can be due to other emotional problems, like stress or depression. More often, treatment does not need to involve any drugs or medication, at all. A natural cure for a panic attack is an option. Some people may prefer to use medications, but there are those who prefer a more wholesome solution. The problem with drugs is, they are only covering up the symptom, and not the underlying, real, problem. This can result in drug dependency, where another problem is developed, as the other one is resolved.



As with just about everything in this world, a balance is required to keep things in harmony with each other. That generally means a good diet and exercise for most. When the panic attacks begin to control our lives, there is very little left for anything else. And that's not healthy. People who suffer attacks should avoid stimulants, like caffeine, energy drinks and alcohol. Leaving them out of your diet can be an easy, natural way to reduce the possibility of suffering an attack.

There are Holistic treatments that would benefit, like aromatherapy, it is very important to try and relax. Try Chamomile or Tila infusions and try using supplements, especially those known to calm the body's nervous system, like vitamin B and magnesium. Panic attacks can be cured naturally, by improving a person's general health, physically and mentally.

Clinical trials (recently published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics) found that Passion Flower extract worked similarly to many of the prescription drugs, currently prescribed for people suffering panic attacks. Natural Healers have used it for centuries, as a cure for anxiety and insomnia. It is even believed Passion Flower extract can be used to relieve anxiety, for people withdrawing from alcohol or drug addiction. Evidence seems to be pointing to the fact, this natural flower extract should be regarded as a powerful (and more importantly), natural cure for a panic attack.

There are several homeopathic remedies and tonics available, that can help panic attack sufferers. They can help the nervous system from becoming run down, due to too much worry and anxiety. Without rest, our mind and body can not stay alert and healthy. Some people need more sleep than others, the average is around eight hours.

Feeling tired certainly won't help, so make sure you are getting the sleep you need. If, despite your best efforts to stay calm, you do find yourself having an attack, try to stay calm and breath deeply. This can prevent hyperventilation and encourage the attack to pass, just that more easily. Learn more tips about a natural cure for a panic attack at http://www.stoppanicattackfast.com

The martial art known as Hapkido is an art of complete self-defense.  Those who study it are more than capable of defending themselves in any type of situation, being more than able to apply their confidence and discipline from the art to enhance their lives, protecting themselves and those that they love as well.

Hapkido teaches students to use minimal force with any stronger opponent.  Contrary to other martial arts, it doesn’t involve strength to execute the techniques.  To control the opponent and take him down, Hapkido focuses on pressure points and the impact they have on opponents.  It also involves a very powerful arsenal of thrusts, spin kicks, and sweeps.  If they are executed properly, the moves from this martial art can be very effective against opponents and attackers.

Along with kicks, punches, and pressure point attacks; Hapkido also uses wrist and joint manipulation locks, along with several throwing techniques. Altogether, there are nearly 300 categories of special movements in Hapkido that involve nearly 3,500 techniques.

Hapkido is a very popular martial art, which is mainly due to the fact that just about anyone, regardless of age or weight can practice the techniques.  The martial art also involves systematic training and stamina exercise, which can improve your health.  You don’t need to be in the best shape either, as Hapkido can actually help your body as well as your health.

Studying Hapkido will also help with developing your muscles, along with your posture, controlling your weight, developing confidence, self-control, even fulfilling your spirit.  Although it is mainly based on self-defense techniques, it also teaches you how to become a better person and get yourself back in health and in touch with your spirit.

Throughout the style, the linear techniques work together to form a solid base in which all of the circular techniques can be perfected.  Everything in Hapkido is tried and tested, in order to come up with a balanced blend of techniques and skills that are apt for any situation.  With Hapkido being a martial art of self-defense, there is a lot of practice involved blocking attacks in many different situations.  This way, the stylist can be more prepared for any situation he finds himself in.



Today, Hapkido is practiced by men and women of all ages, even little children.  It is a very beneficial martial art, one that can be utilized from nearly any position or direction, such as lying, sitting, and standing.  It is an art of self-defense, and can even be deadly if the stylist is proficient with the techniques.  What makes it even more deadly though - is the fact that a lot of people aren’t familiar with it.
