Pain & Stress are part of our life but if it becomes chronic, it turns into depression. An untreated depression can lead someone to have suicidal tendencies. Sometimes, it is absolutely okay to feel sad or disappointed, but when you have an impulse to harm yourself, you should take a back-seat and consider sincere professional assistance / treatment.

Few years back, I came across a patient who showed signs of suicidal tendencies. One female about age 30 was brought to me by one of our common friend. I was informed that the female has attempted suicide just past night. I had no detailed information regarding her depression or anything else to substantiate her agony but she was assured by my friend to get proper counselling and treatment.

During her consultation, she was quiet, did not speak much and was very much disinterested in what was happening around herself. Her depression was markedly noticeable. I requested her to feel relaxed and comfortable and started my Reiki session beginning with Crown Chakra, Third Eye and Heart Chakra in that order. It was a long session of about 90 minutes. At the end of the session, she was feeling relaxed and even laughed at one of the ice-breaker jokes which i had thrown across.

A t the end of the session, she confessed that she was not sure how Reiki would help her get relaxed and was just toeing the line on insistence of our common friend. Moreover, she assured us full heartedly that she will never ever think of self harm and would henceforth start indulging in practices which make her happy and occupy her time. Also she was grateful in telling me, that going forward, even if she comes across any low point in life, she would surely seek for assistance and treatment, rather than attempting something life threatening.

On a personal note, I was very happy that a single Long Session of Reiki, helped someone regain senses for their life!!

While pondering over this case now, it makes me realize that there lays a strong message underneath in this case for each and every one of us. Whatever we have come across, the pain, the moment, the low point of our life, all of this can be set aside by being alert to oneself and by loving oneself. (Instances where you cannot lift yourself up, one should always get connected to someone and seek for advice)

What is Stammer and what are its causes ? Stammer or Stutter is not the disease itself but the condition or the symptom caused by  a disease / disorder. Causes for stammer and its intensity are individualistic.

Causes can be purely genetic, psychological or due to some sort of brain injury. Associated conditions with stammer that I have come across in my practice are depression, anxiety, lack of self confidence, frustration or so on….

Social issues they often have to deal with include humiliation, ignorance, bullying at workplace and school and much more. Family and care giver role is of significant importance in maintaining one’s self confidence and self esteem.

I have listed few suggestions for family and care givers as below:

  1. Stammer doesn’t mean that they have nothing to say. They have right to express themselves and speak in their own words. So, do not be hasty and take some time to listen to them.
  2. Don’t try to complete their sentences by yourself. Don’t burden them by your interpretations like.. “I understand. Do you mean to say that………!”. You might feel that this might be helping them out but in fact you take away their chance of speaking out on their own.
  3. Stay with them whenever and wherever they need you and provide adequate emotional support to them.
  4. There are number of therapies which are complimentary with Reiki in this condition,
    1. Martial-arts therapy : Use of Vocal chord is enhanced when someone practices skills of Martial arts.
    2. Auto-suggestion therapy : Type of meditation, where one is taught to give commands/ directions to himself.
    3. Homoeopathic medicine
    4. Animal assistant therapy : keeping parrots and encouraging your child to repeat its word can also be helpful.
  5. Try to find alternate words for words that are difficult enough to pronounce. For example, if someone has concerns for spelling letter “X” in word Box, try using word Carton and demonstrate its size/shape.
