Reiki ~ What It Is and The Benefits

Reiki is a healing modality that is passed down from teacher to student through verbal and energetic lineage. There are 3 steps to learning how to facilitate the flow of the Reiki energy.
I often recommend Reiki treatments as a follow up to my spiritual counseling sessions.
The number one question I am then asked is "What is a Reiki treatment?"
A typical Reiki treatment is done on a treatment table where the client relaxes on the table and the practitioner runs healing energy (Reiki) through them to the client.
The process is like an auric, spiritual, emotional, mental and physical healing.
The Reiki energy is very gentle only going to where it is needed.
I may add crystals to the healing sessions, aromatherapy, a guided visual meditation, drumming and more... 
Often crossed over loved ones or spirit guides come through in the healing process.
Here are some of the possible results of a Reiki session:

  • Less stress
  • Pain alleviated
  • Closer spiritual connection to source
  • An alignment of the chakras
  • Release of emotional trauma
  • Healing of wounds, disease and discomfort
  • Better nighttime sleep
  • Less anxiety
  • Increased intuition
  • The ability to solve problems more easily
  • Mental clarity
  • and more...
There aren't any negative side effects of Reiki.
In Reiki 1 ~ you learn about channeling the Universal Healing Energy. Also, you learn the traditional positions for self and others. Reiki 1 is really about you healing you.
Reiki 2 ~ brings in distance healing and learning the traditional 3 Reiki symbols of healing and power
Reiki 3 ~ this is where you learn how to teach and pass on the Reiki teachings.
One does not become a Reiki Master until they have attuned (passed on an energetic initiation) at least one student.

Does everyone need to take all 3 levels? No, I don't think everyone is called to do so. However, I recommend at least Reiki 1 for everyone at least for self. to work with some Reiki energy for myself before I begin my day :)

Blessings and Light,

Mentors and Teachers

I don't care who you are ~ how evolved you say you are ~ everyone benefits from a teacher/mentor.

We are all here to grow and evolve. There is the journey of life where there is love, fear, tricksters, lovers, friends, joy, sadness, grief and more...all of these elements are teachers. 

The teacher/mentor I am referring to is someone a of higher consciousness than you. This is not about getting upset over the lesser than greater than concept. I am speaking of seeking out someone whose energy, insight, frequency will lift you up simply by interacting with them.

Yes, we can say prayers and request for them to show up in our lives. I am encouraging you to go within and ask where do I struggle? Where do I keep repeating the same patterns? Have I hit a plateau in the evolution of my soul? 

As you receive the answers you will see where you may need a little extra help.
Do I often go to teachers? Yes, there are periods in my life where after much reflection and inner work that I say "Ok, now it is time to elevate my soul. Time to seek outside help." This is when I pray and request assistance, I observe the changes in others. If I really see something within them that sparks some interest I may ask them what are they doing differently.

The message I am trying to convey is this ~ We are human and if you are here on this planet you have stuff and more to learn to evolve to.
Self-realization, enlightenment is the number one reason we are here and must be a priority in our lives. It just might look a little different for everyone.

Suggestions ~

  • Seek a teacher, ask the Universe to put you in alignment with the teacher that is for your highest and best good
  • Get out there, see what classes are in your area, search the internet
  • Travel, how about a change of pace?
  • Ask others what they are doing to help themselves, do they have any references
  • Ask someone you respect where they received their training
  • Mentorship does not need to cost a small fortune...more expensive is not necessarily better
I am encouraging you to only seek help when you are comfortable and ready. Sometimes this is the most difficult step. Do you need help all the time? No, you don't. Too much is too confusing, we must allow ourselves a period to integrate all we have learned and worked through.

Have a blessed day,

Your Presence bring Presents

How many of you are multi-taskers? I, am guilty of this "offense".  After much contemplation, frustration and running around I have come to understand that I am counter-productive to all I am trying to achieve by cutting corners. 
The greatest gift you can give yourself is to be present in all you say, do and think.
If we bring awareness to our actions, we will be bringing all of our energy and focus into our lives.
Spirit shows it to me this way ~ Would you rather drive with all of your cylinders or with only a few. 
First of all by only running on a few cylinders chances are it will take you longer to get to your destination. The same applies with multi-tasking. You are unable to bring all of your awareness to each and every task. 
Think about children as well. They would rather have unconditional attention one on one instead of sharing the limelight with a sibling. This applies for all relationships...friends, co-workers even pets.
By multi-tasking you are possibly missing some of the gifts, for example a key word or phrase or even a sign from spirit. 
How many use their Bluetooth in the car while driving. You most likely are missing a sunset, a bird in the sky or even a rainbow. 

  • When people are speaking with you ~ stop what you are doing ~ make eye contact
  • When you are on the phone try to be present by really listening to what they are saying
  • People would appreciate you sharing that you are in the middle of something and you would prefer to call them back so you can give all of your attention to them
  • Schedule one on one time with a friend, a spouse, a pet, a child
  • Make a schedule and try to stick to it. Cross off what you have already accomplished
  • When meditating, praying or intending to spend quality time alone...turn off the computer, your phone and go to a space where there is nothing but you and source
Being present is the best present you can give yourself and the world :)

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!
Blessings and Light,

Help Is On Its Way...

Hello...I know it's been a while ~ I, as many of you am in the process of change and movement.
Like everyone, I have dreams, intentions, goals I am striving towards. 
For example ~ more free time with my family, creating a smooth transition with my front desk as my dear friend Jodi delves into her career in art, creating better use of my time, educate myself more etc. etc. etc.
With movement we often ask for help, assistance, something! Often people focus on what is revealed as now to take an action towards it. We do need to take action or redirect ourselves. In addition to this we also have helpers who have been placed before us that we don't always acknowledge the assistance that has been sent from "above".
I was reminded of this this past week. Spirit orchestrated two people from different geographical locations, from different cultural backgrounds, who do not know each other both with the same exact message with at least 6 key points or messages with detailed information relayed to me within 3 days of each other. 
What are the chances?? Practically a miracle which I do see this as one. 
The messages brought to me were from Spirit and I know I am protected and to trust myself on what I had been receiving as guidance. Because I doubted myself, I was sent two people who would help bring the message home.
So what's the point of my message here? The message is to ask, ask for validation, ask for help, ask for clear and precise the name to the letter to the T. Then you sit back and wait. You continue to grow, to change, to be proactive. Simply keep moving forward.
I thank the two Earth angels who brought me exactly what I needed this week to help me move forward.
I also thank the daily Earth angels who love me unconditionally, who listen without judgement, who will tell me the truth about myself of what I may not be "seeing". 
I know I say this often...but I, you, we are all blessed on a daily basis. Situations may appear difficult or unsolvable but there are blessings and there are people being sent as just need to be aware of your surroundings.

Blessings and Light,
