Why Are You Sick? Practical Tools For Wellness
Are you tired of being told it’s all in your head? And even though you feel awful, doctors are telling you there is nothing wrong with you? You are not alone! For nearly a decade, Reiki Master Francie Soito, saw similar patterns in her clients who struggled to find the source of their problems. Using her high-tech market research skills, Francie began to draw patterns between physical illnesses and the emotional and mental root causes behind them. Join Francie as she illustrates the mind-body connection like never before and learn about your energy body, chakras and most importantly, gain the practical tools on how to be well and whole again.
Step 1: Identify the point of impact
Where in your body are you experiencing pain or are you storing your stress? It will be the first thing that comes to mind. You might have more than one place pop up, just focus on the one that comes up first. If you have cancer, where did the first tumor originate? For example, if you have breast cancer the answer would be in your heart area, if it is sinuses it would be in your nose, if it’s back pain it would be lower, middle or upper back. If you have an all over body disorder like a blood disorder, inflammation, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, etc. start with the root chakra and work your way up.
Step 2: Pinpoint the source
Ask yourself what was going on in your life at the time the pain, stress first started or you received your diagnosis? What was going on in your life two years leading up to the first symptom? Take notes on the first things that come into your head. Examples to look out for are major life events like a death, job loss, divorce, car accident, relocation, break-up, etc. When you think about these events do you feel your body change physically? And if so, is it in the spot that you are having issues?
Step 3: Find the corresponding chakra
Match that part of your body from Step 1 with the Chakra Illustration Figure . Does the description of that chakra resonate with your feelings from Step 2 above?
Step 4: Jump to that chakra chapter
Step 5: Follow the steps to healing
Use the examples and the tools in the chakra chapters to help you be whole again.
This was a thought-provoking and insightful guide. The author did an amazing job of balancing out the personal stories that put her on the path of Reiki and the instructional moments that guided the reader toward the issues they are facing in life and the corresponding chakras they are associated with. The relatability and the emotional connection the author is able to make to the material in the book helped keep the reader engaged with the guide.
The way the author is able to connect spirituality and energy work to modern-day health concerns was truly thoughtful. As someone with multiple autoimmune diseases, it was interesting to see how the author was able to relate each chakra to various areas of the body and how the chakras connected to those areas as well. The way the author was able to relay the history of Reiki and energy work was so fascinating as well.
Memorable, captivating, and engaging, author Francie Soito’s “Why Are You Sick?: Practical Tools For Wellness” is a must-read nonfiction book on health and spirituality. The enlightening way the author is able to relay this guide to readers and the emotional weight of the impact this will have on readers with health struggles who are searching for new ways of confronting their health issues and connecting to a higher energy self in the process made this an amazing book to read.
