9 Ways to Beat Morning Sickness with Reiki
Ever since a blossoming, pregnant Meena Kumari announced to the cinema world that she was
"nauseous", morning sickness came bounding out the closet and into our everyday vocabulary. Still, one of the
biggest misnomers is that it occurs only in the mornings!
As any pregnant women can tell
you, morning sickness can actually come on almost anytime, day or night. The good news is doctors say it can
be sign of a healthy pregnancy - and usually disappears by the 13th week. In the meantime, you can
control morning sickness with these hints and tips:
Must at least have taken 2nd Degree Reiki
Attunement to be able to yourself or heal others of morning sickness. Must know how to use CHO KU REI and SEI
HEI KI for self healing and for healing all your medicines you take during pregnancy.
1. Switch prenatal vitamins - or the time you take them - The high iron content in most can turn
on the nausea switch and induce morning sickness. Try a low-iron or no-iron formula in the first trimester
when needs are lowest. Sometimes switching brands can also help - so can taking your vitamins late in
the day. Also, skip the water and instead smother your vitamin pill in a spoonful of pudding or
applesauce. Always use the CHO KU REI symbol on all your vitamins before taking it to reduce its side
2. Eat crackers in bed - Try a dry, high carbohydrate snack, such as crackers or toast,
taken twenty to thirty minutes before you get out of bed, and avoid drinking any liquids, particularly
water. This can help keep morning sickness from developing. Draw CHO KU REI on your palms before getting out of bed in the morning and bless everyone around
you with you hands.
3. Never go to bed hungry - To avoid morning sickness, avoid sugary, high carbohydrates
snacks late at night, since they can cause a drop in blood sugar that precipitates morning nausea. Instead
snack on high protein foods like hard-boiled eggs, cheese, or yogurt. Draw CHO KU REI and SEI HEI KI on your bed, your night gowns and blanket. This will help you to
sleep peacefully and keep away negative spirits from coming in your dreams.
4. Eat ginger - because it's not just an old wives tale! Medical studies now show that
eating or drinking anything containing ginger can quell morning sickness. Natural ginger is best - as a
tea or sprinkled over a dessert - but also try ginger ale, ginger snaps, or talk to your doctor about ginger
5. Massage your pressure points - Putting pressure on what Chinese medicine experts call
the "P6 Nei Guan" nerve located on the underside of the arm about 2 inches above the wrist, can help reduce
morning sickness. Stimulate it by putting the pressure on using two fingers or the thumb of your opposite
hand. You can also invest in a seasickness wristband, which stimulates the anti-nausea point
6. Rise and Shine...Slowly -When you do get up - whether it be in the morning or after a
nap - do so slowly. Everyday do the 12 reiki hands position self healing before getting out of
bed. Rising too quickly can throw off equilibrium and contribute to the vomiting.
7. Use Aromatherapy: Although certain smells can trigger nausea, others can stop it. To
combat offensive odours anytime, anywhere, douse a hankie scented with essential oils of peppermint
and lavender, and keep it in a plastic bag inside your handbag. At the first hint of nausea, hold the hankie
over your nose and inhale once or twice. Do Sei Hei Ki on all your cosmetics and oils you use everyday.
8 Avoid common nausea triggers - including the smell of meat, fish, poultry, greasy or fatty
foods, coffee, onions, garlic and pungent spices. Also don't overlook cleaning your workplace of chemicals,
perfume, heat, humidity, noise, motion (like riding in an elevator or on a subway) or even a flickering
computer screen as potential nausea triggers.
9. Do reiki everyday on yourself. Draw CHO KU REI on all eight corners of your bathroom, kitchen
and sleeping room daily. This will keep your environment clean and healthy as well keep you away from morning
