I’m sure you all know that each month has a birthstone, but do you know how to use that stone metaphysically? How about the stone that is for your Zodiac sign, do you know what that is or how to use it metaphysically?
I have a mini video lesson on YouTube telling you about August’s crystal and the zodiac signs Leo and Virgo’s crystals.
The chakras have been found in the ancient texts of Vedas (200-600 BCE) and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (200 CE). Chakra means wheel or vortex in Sanskrit. It is common in New Age groups to hear the chakras being called Spinning Wheels of Light.
As such, a lot of energy workers, Reiki practitioners, and healers will focus on the chakras.
There are seven well-known major chakras. There are hundreds of minor chakras and major chakras that haven’t received the recognition the 7 well-known ones have.
The Major Seven Chakras are associated and connected to the body. If the chakra isn’t working properly, be it there are clogs or imbalances. There will be illness, disease and/or emotional diseases in the body parts associated to that chakra.
Meditation, exercises, and special diets help balance the chakras, but at times a healer maybe needed.
When an energy worker/healer is contacted they will look at the chakras and the illnesses and find the association and the root of the problem. A quick overview of the Major Seven.
The major well-known 7 chakras are the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown chakras. As you can see some of the names will tell you where the chakra is located.
The Root chakra is considered the first. This chakra is located at the tip of the tailbone or Coccyx (the pointy little bone at the end of the spine/tailbone). It’s color is usually red. This chakra as the Root name would hint at, is associated with everything we need for survival. It also makes up who we are on a human level. Its physical associations are the body parts located in that area, bladder, spine, male reproductive organs, vagina, nervous system, and blood.
The Sacral Chakra is the second and located two fingers width below the belly button. Its color is orange. This chakra is associated with intimacy and creativity. Its physical associations are the body parts we find in the low abdomen, female reproductive organs including the mammary glands, the kidneys, skin, sexual impotency, lack of sexual desire, and fertility. I want to mention fertility isn’t always about a child. Creativity is also located in this chakra, a lack of creative ideas, unable to take that creative idea to its birth is also considered.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the third and is located in the center of the ribs. Where the ribs connect, under the heart. Its color is yellow. This chakra is associated with personal power. The physical associations are the body parts we find in the stomach area, the stomach, intestines, spleen, pancreas, and liver.
The Heart Chakra is the fourth and located at the heart. Its color is usually green, but can also be pink. This chakra is associated with our loving self. It allows us to love others and ourselves, it allows us to forgive too. The physical associations are the body parts we find in the chest. The heart, lungs, the lymph nodes, the immune system, and Thymus gland.
The Throat Chakra is the fifth and located in the neck, at the throat. Its color is blue. This chakra is associated with speech and communication. It’s our ability to speak our truth. The physical associations are the body parts we find in the throat. The thyroid, throat, nerves, muscles, and the parts we use when we communicate -tongue, ears, and mouth.
The Third Eye Chakra is the sixth and located in the forehead between the eyebrows. Its color is indigo or purple. This chakra is associated with our intuition, and intuitive gifts. The physical associations are the body parts are those located in the head. The pineal and pituitary glands, eyes, ears and brain.
The Crown Chakra is the seventh and located just above the crown of the head. Its color is violet; in some theories it is clear. This chakra is associated with our connection to the Devine, and our higher self. The physical associations are the same as the Third Eye Chakra. The brain, pineal gland, pituitary gland and nervous system.
I hope you enjoyed our quick tour of the Major Seven.
These are the five principles that Dr. Usui created.
These principles are daily guidelines to a happy life. I would highly recommend everyone make an effort to follow them.
Reiki practitioners strive to live by these principles.
These are not commandments, these are guidelines.
Reiki students are told to meditate on each meaning. I will share a little of my meditations on the meaning of each principle here.
Just for today:
I will let go of anger
I will count my many blessings
I will do my work honestly
I will be kind to every living creature
I will let go of worry
Anger and worry are negative vibrations. These two emotions will attract more negativity to us. Very few want negativity to surround us. Letting go of worry will give us room to create the good we want. Anger is a poison we give ourselves. Actually, worry is a poison too. Both anger and worry, will only bring more issues which will make us angrier or more worrisome.
I will count my many blessings. So many of us more often than not focus on the bad things that happen to us. We concentrate on worry or anger and not our blessings. We really need to change this. We are so blessed, we are alive, we have amazing technology that will allow us to connect instantly with family far away, we have more knowledge available to us than ever before. Also, this is rarely mentioned, but when we have a bad moment or stressful situation…. these are truly blessings, they teach us how strong we are. It may also be a way to get us to do what we are meant to do, but don’t want to.
Being kind to every living creature. Why are we not doing this anyways?! Why must this be a principle? Is humanity so full of itself that we don’t see the value in the other lifeforms we share this planet with.
I will do my work honestly. This is one of the harder principles. Each practitioner needs to decide what this means to them. To me, in my practice it means I won’t over charge my clients. I will not half-ass, any job that I have been hired to do.
What do you think of these principles?
Will you strive to follow them?
Reiki is Universal Energy, or Universal Life Force. Simply stated, Reiki is energy.
Rei means Universal, Omnipresent, and has been said to mean the Wisdom of God.
Ki means Energy, Life Force, and has been said to mean the non-physical vitality that gives life.
Depending on the practitioner this energy comes from the Universe, the Creator -or Creative Source, God, or whoever the practitioner believes in.
What does Reiki do?
As I’ve stated various times, we are energy. When our energy is low or unbalanced, because of stress, depression, or just tired you will be open to illness and disease. You also become negative -it’s hard for you to see the good in anything, anger, complaints and general negative outlook- will be all you speak of. A Reiki session will give us not only the energy we need to be whole again, but will also give us a positive outlook again.
Where did Reiki come from?
Reiki has always been around. Its energy has been used to heal and assists thousands of years before Buddha or Christ. It’s known by many names like Chi in China, Prana in Asian cultures, even within the Christian community energy is known as the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost.
The name Reiki was fashioned by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese scholar in the end of the nineteenth century. Dr. Usui was born into a family of Zen Buddhist practitioners (11 generations), as a young man he contracted an illness and was close to death. During his hospitalization he decided to follow in his family’s footsteps and joined a Zen monastery.
He studied the ancient Sanskrit and Sutras. After many years of study, he found ancient references of a form of healing the symbols, formulas and methods. He had the book knowledge, but not the wisdom or experience of this ancient form of healing. He decided to take some time away from the monastery and meditate alone. He gathered 21 pebbles and went up the mountain side to meditate, read the Sanskrit, fast, and pray. Each day he tossed on of the pebbles he’d gathered.
On the last day, he asked God to show him the light. A bright light came towards him rapidly and hit him in the center of the forehead. He was knocked unconscious; it’s said that while he was knocked out he saw the symbols he’d read of. When he regained consciousness, he ran down the mountain. He stumbled and cut his toe. As he tried to hold the sore toe, he noticed that the pain disappeared instantly.
Before returning to the monastery, he stopped to eat. After fasting for 21 days, a full meal would cause stomach pains but he was able to eat without any pains. The girl who served him was suffering from a toothache, he asked permission to place his hands on her, and was able to remove the pain. This was just the first of Dr. Usui’s healings.
Dr. Usui began healing beggars and helping them find work. When he found the same people begging again, he realized that healing the physical was not enough, and the spirit and mind also needed healing. He also created the The Five Principles of Reiki after this.
The rest of Dr. Usui’s life was spent healing, teaching, and developing Usui Shiki Rhoyo, a method that has no religious dogma or religious beliefs. This allowed Reiki to be a universal form of healing.
*This post has become long enough, I’ll give more info another day about how Dr. Usui’s teaching were taught, and lineages.
Maria provides exceptional service!! I would recommend her services to anyone who would need them!! She is very professional and fair with the cost of services that she provides. I would see her again! March 1, 2016
I highly recommend Maria Ramirez for your metaphysical healing. She did an Intuitive Healing Session for me which included Psychic Surgery, Chakra Balancing, Aura Cleaning & more. I had never even heard of a Psychic Vampire before, but I definitely had one. Maria was able to remove all the cords he had attached to me that were sucking my energy. I am awestruck at the difference in how I feel physically, emotionally, and psychically. If you are feeling exhausted for an unusually length of time for no reason, have pain that cannot be physically explained or healed by a medical doctor, feel unusually crappy for no reason for a lengthy period of time, please contact Maria. I am excited that she will be doing an Intuitive Reading for me tomorrow. I can’t wait to hear what she has to tell me now that I’m healed, happy, and enjoying life again!!! Thank you Maria❤ Janet Lima February 28, 2015
I absolutely LOVE my mojo bag! I highly recommend you get yours TODAY! Thank you Maria<3 Alyssa Commander February 12, 2015
Thank you so much Maria! As usual I am amazed. I am still thinking about the message from my grandmother to my father and myself. She stepped in with Pops and Maria explained who they were and what they wanted us to know. I must say my Father was in awe. Only he would know these facts. Amazing! Then she reminded me- she says remember the fire you have in your bones, your blood is strong as spit, you don’t ever forget that. Just amazing! I think that was a direct order for me to work on the depression. She reminded me I come from some strong stock!<3 February 1, 2015Kelly Allison Cifone
I wanted to let all my friends know that I have a very gifted friend who is Reiki healer, and energy worker. She performed a healing for me and was able to pinpoint things that I know have been issues as well as things I didn’t even know about… My chronic back pain is all but gone (except for the fact that I need a new bed!) and she has given me such a feeling of peace that I have not had for months (lots going in personally…)
If you have physical health issues, mental and or spiritual issues… please reach out to her. She is very reasonable on her pricing and you won’t believe the things she can see and do. I can’t thank her enough and it makes me all the more excited because I am going to be getting my Reiki attunement soon myself and start a new leg in my spiritual growth to be a healer as well. Thank you again Maria! September 27, 2015 Stephanie Martin
I have had my reiki distance healing with Maria Ramirez that I was lucky enough to win and can I just say, she is astounding! It was the first time I have ever had anything like this and I woke up this morning feeling like someone had opened a window and let the fresh air in, absolutely wonderful!! She also touched on a few things that are causing me problems and advised me on how I might look for solutions AND she gave me some information about myself that I was completely unaware of (which I will be looking into and following up)!! She explained everything she was doing as she went along and also created a beautiful grid for me too. I can’t thank her enough and I can’t recommend her enough!! Thank you so much Maria, you are a wonder!! grin emoticon heart emoticon xxx September 23, 2015 Jess Howe
Who’s Maria and “WHY” should I care what she does?
I’m an Intuitive Holistic Healer, Certified Reiki Master, and Certified Metaphysical Practioner. I’m an Empath, Psychic and a Medium. I could go on and on about what Reiki and energy work is, and how it works. I can talk until we both are dizzy about being a Psychic/Medium. I could list out all my certifications and such, but really that doesn’t tell you why you should care.
I’ll tell you what I do instead. I work with energy. Most Metaphysical talk (which sounds like a whole load of mumbo jumbo if you aren’t using the terms daily) will tell you we all are made of energy and vibrations and we need our vibrations to be high. This is true but if you don’t know how to do that, it doesn’t matter jack what others tell you.
So why should you care who I am?
Because I can help you increase your vibrations and your energy. I can help you clear all the yuckies (whatever they maybe) that clog your energy, and in turn make you feel like crap. Clearing your energy will increase your vibrations. That right there is why my clients care who I am, and what I do.
I help them feel better and live better, and I can help you.
I also help you find where all this junk is coming from and advise you on how to avoid it.

As an Intuitive Healer and Energy Worker AKA Holistic Healer, I look at illness or pain as a symptom. I believe the root will be found in mental, emotional, or spiritual realms. In this way, the relief I assist in providing is best when in conjunction with your Medical Provider.
I work with energy whether yours, mine or Universal to help ease the pain or illness you suffer from. Assisted by my Spirit Guides and Angels I readjust, clean, or provide energy to and around my client be it their aura, chakras, or within their body and assisting them to see how the root was created they have seen a marked difference.
