"I WILL NOT BE ANGRY"

Anger at others or oneself or at the whole world, creates serious blockages in one's energy.  It is the most complex inner enemy.

This guideline is important to become more conscious of our feelings. We all carry anger within us and often we do not know what the real source of it is.  Anger can be triggered by a minor incident and the real reason for it may be unconscious.

We need to look at each situation as though we are looking in a mirror, at the reflection created by us.  Those who stimulate our anger may not necessarily be the main cause of it.

 Beneath each feeling of anger lies a deeper layer of being hurt.  We often carry a wound because our needs were not met adequately earlier on in life.  So we need to become more conscious of our feelings and take responsibility for them.

 The first step is to acknowledge the feeling of anger and take charge of it. The second step is to recognize its cause, and the third is to address it.

Don't feel guilty about being angry.  We need to give ourselves permission to re- lease these feelings and not hold them in.      

Repressing your anger constantly can create illness over time and to avoid this you need to learn to respect and understand yourself better.  It is important to connect with yourself and love yourself.  The more you love yourself the more easily you can let go of anger and other negative emotions.

 There is nothing wrong with experiencing anger and intense emotions; they are energies that keep us moving.  But if we become aware of them and do not hold them back, we will feel more healthy and alive.

 Whenever you get angry at someone else, wait 24 hours before you act.  If you still feel angry, go to the person and tell them what you need to say.  Most of the time, you will find after 24 hours the anger has disappeared.

I will expound on the next Reiki Principle 

"I will not worry"

Don't Miss it!

HUMOROUS CORNER

Since light travels faster than sound, is that why some people appear bright until
you hear them speak?
   

Why do you press harder on a remote-control,
when you know
the battery is dead?

Why is a carrot more orange than an orange?
 

If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?

Why do we put suits
in a garment bag and
put garments in a suitcase?

Why do banks charge you a
"non-sufficient funds fee"
on money they already know you don't have?

    The California Pacific Medical Center's 

" Reiki Program"

The California Pacific Medical Center is one of the largest hospitals in northern California. It's Health and Healing Clinic, a branch of the Institute for Health and Healing, provides care for both acute and chronic illness using a wide range of complementary care including Reiki, Chinese medicine, hypnosis, biofeedback, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal therapy, nutritional therapy and aromatherapy. 

The clinic has six treatment rooms and is currently staffed by two physicians, Dr. Mike Cantwell and Dr. Amy Saltzman. Cantwell, a pediatrician specializing in infectious diseases, is also a Reiki Master with training in nutritional therapy. Saltzman specializes in internal medicine and also has training in mindfulness meditation, acupuncture and nutritional therapy. 

Other professionals are waiting to join the the staff, including several physicians.

The doctors at the clinic work with the patients and their referring physicians to determine what complementary modalities will be appropriate for the patient.  

 (continued - next column)

 

A detailed questionnaire designed to provide a holistic overview of the patient's condition is used to help decide the course of treatment.

The questionnaire involves a braod range of subjects including personal satisfaction with relationships, friends and family, with body image, and with job, career, and spirituality. The clinic is very popular and currently has a waiting list of more than 100 patients.

Dr. Cantwell provides 1-3 hour long Reiki sessions, after which he assigns the patient to a Reiki II internist who continues to provide Reiki sessions outside the clinic.  Patients who continue to respond well to the Reiki treatments are referred for Reiki training so they can con- tinue Reiki self-treatments on a continuing basis.

Dr. Cantwell states: "I have found Reiki to be useful in the treatment of acute illnesses such as musculoskeletal injury/pain, headache, acute infections, and asthma. Reiki is also useful for patients with chronic illnesses, especially those associated with chronic pain."

At this point, Reiki is not covered by insurance at the clinic, but Dr. Cantwell is conducting clinical research in the hope of convincing insurance companies that complementary care is viable and will save them money.

  TESTIMONIALS

Ivory Tower Institute has already received tremendous accolades from some very satisfied customers. Below are just a few reviews posted.

"Just wanted to let you know that I received my REIKI VANITY PLATE and I am so proud to have it on the front of my car!  It has given me the opportunity to share this alternative healing modality with several people. Strangers ask me what it means, and these are people who might never have known about REIKI. What a wonderful idea. Thanks, Victor"

"I am feeling GREAT! I had experienced pain for years and the doctors could not determine the reason for it. ON a scale from 1 to 10, the pain was an 8 and 9 at times. Now that I have received Reiki treatments from you, it is actually GONE!  I can't THANK YOU enough. I am a believer and will share this new found wisdom with others.  Again, thanks for your healing touch and prayers, Barb"

 

 

  TESTIMONIALS

 " I have never written a review concerning any service that I have ever used on the internet. However, I feel so good about the help given me by SAGE, that I felt compelled to write this. I have recently had a major personal crisis in my life. It was, needless to say, a very low time. I don't know how I came in contact with the Ivory Tower website; but, am I glad I did. Not only did Sage help me understand and connect the dots with my particular situation, but she helped me see the bigger picture. She helped me see the reasons why this was going to turn out to be a positive instead of a negative. Thank You at Ivory Tower, for offering this service on your website. It is comforting to know, that SAGE is there when I need her. I really recommend everyone to take advantage of this wonderful service.  I got in for the limited time only $25.00 special, but I will gladly pay the regular rate in the future. Thank You once again Sage and Ivory Tower. Sincerely, Audrey "  


   TESTIMONIALS

"I had not ever heard of Powells Books. But I am glad you had them on this site. I bought *Natural Health, Natural Medicine* by Andrew Weil for only $4.95. The list price is $14.00. This is a used book in very good shape. Great savings! I applaud you for donating part of your profits to charity, I will revisit your store when I'm ready for more shopping.  Caspian"

 

"I just have to tell you how excited I am and how much I appreciate this wonderful opportunity.

I have been searching, and searching, to find the best business for me to do at home. Thank you! Now, I have found it...It has all of the elements that I was looking for.  And, to have an estore that does 90% of the work...just doesn't get any better.

Thanks again,   'Ed'
