310 – Brothers in Healing

310 – Brothers in Healing

Note: This conversation contains mature subject matter and language about PTSD and the effects of PTSD.

I want to start off with a thank you to Paula Anne of Ablaze Entertainment for introducing me to Chris and Woody. I am proud to support those who are first responders, EMS, and law enforcement personally and as Oscar Mike Radio.

Chris and Woody have over four decades of law enforcement experience. They came on Oscar Mike Radio to talk about how PTSD affects Law Enforcement. Over the course of their career, situations they experienced started to take their toll on them and negatively impacted their lives

Knowing they needed help, Chris and Woody went to Deer Hollow Recovery and Wellness to get help for their trauma. After going through treatment, they were committed to helping their fellow Law Enforcement brothers and sisters avoid a permanent end to temporary problems. And so, Brothers in Healing was formed to get immediate aid to those in need. You can go to https://brothersinhealing.com/ – to find out more and support Chris and Woody’s mission.

Episode 61 – Janet Woods, Reiki Practitioner

Episode 61 – Janet Woods, Reiki Practitioner

Reiki is something I wouldn’t normally associate with Veterans. However, every now and then I meet someone who can change your mind about the power of healing. I met Janet Woods a couple of years ago and started getting curious about Reiki Healing.

According to Reiki.org, Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. (Reiki.org – What is Reiki?

Janet has been doing Reiki for a long time. Holistic healing like Reiki is something Janet believes can help Veterans because she has seen it work. Talking with Janet she discussed how the human body conducts energy, and by being able to manipulate that energy there is healing that one can’t get from a medicine bottle.

Janet finds that looking at healing from a mind + body + spirit perspective makes for a complete healing process. Also being able to truly listen to someone’s voice and body in time where there are so many distractions pulling at one’s attention.

I have always found that I am calm when I talk to Janet. I don’t know what it is. I have started reading about auras and how some people can “see” them better than others. I know to some that it sounds too good to be true, but what if it isn’t? What if you have pain and you want some relief? Would you give it a try? After listening to Janet talk, I would say yes, you should.
