This ability to change and influence our vibrations is good not only for us but also for the planet.


We are all living on a planet that has an electromagnetic field and we each have our own electromagnetic fields within this. In this way we are all connected and our vibrational fields affect each other. As you can see with static electricity affecting your hair, everything affects everything – everything is connected.


Our bodies emit a frequency and this can affect other electromagnetic fields around it. So when we change and raise our frequency / vibration we can change other’s frequencies too. Therefore if enough people vibrate at a certain level this can affect the collective environment; ie the world. I’m very interested in this aspect of Reiki moving forward, taking it to a larger scale.


We can all take steps to realise our own personal responsibility for our own body’s energies and to raise our vibration level.


We can all become conscious of the thoughts, feelings and attitudes that affect our body’s vibration, and be aware that we are all feeding this to the collective field every day.


We all have a choice in each moment to take to heart the significance of intentionally managing our energies.


I believe this is what is meant when people talk about oneness and connectedness. Even though this connectedness is fast becoming explained in the realms of science and quantum physics, for me this does not take away from the spiritual aspect of how very beautiful it is to become aware that we are all in this together.


We are all part of something much bigger than any single one of us, and we all have the ability to feel our way to the changes we would like to see in ourselves, in others and on this planet.





Along with reiki, the practice of Grounding or Earthing is another form of balancing energy flow.


We are bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet. Both our bodies and the planet have their own separate electromagnetic fields.


The planet has a natural way of maintaining a healthy balance of the + and – electrons that make up it’s electromagnetic field.


This healthy balance also benefits anything living on this planet when it is connected directly to the earth. The only living things on this planet that live unconnected to the ground are humans. Every other animal, plant and organism has some form of connecting to the earth during some part of their day. In the modern world we live in houses with insulated flooring, wear insulated rubber soled shoes and sleep on raised beds and we can have no connection to the earth at any point.


During our day we can also pick up an overload of + electrons charges from the electrical and electromagnetic radiation we encounter from items such as computers, tv sets, bluetooth, wifi, and electrical circuits in the house. These things induce an additional voltage into our bodies that disrupt our cell’s electrical signalling.


The act of grounding allows us to connect to the earth with bare feet or skin and we receive beneficial electrons into our bodies. These can balance the additional voltage by releasing the overload of + charges back into the earth, just like an earthing wire on a plug, and allowing the rebalancing – electrons in the earth to pass into our bodies. All this happens by simply walking barefoot on the earth, grass or swimming in the sea.


It take take place in a matter of minutes and can explain why we feel instantly more relaxed whenever we take off our shoes to walk in the cool grass or on a warm sandy beach.
