Rediscovery

It's been a while. However, in my defense, I have been rather busy as of late. Selling a house, buying another house, resigning one position, starting and learning another, merging three families into one ... so, ya, it's been kind of hectic.

I realized last week that I was seriously beginning to feel "out of touch" with my reiki and meditation. I knew I hadn't lost it, but because I hadn't practiced in so long, it felt kind of far away. I have managed to keep in touch with my angels; I use my angel cards just about every day. More times than I can remember, I'm being reassured that I'm on the right path, and I'm being guided to continue my education as well.

That said, I've made an appointment with my Master Teacher Beth, to see her tomorrow night. I'm very excited. I feel like I haven't seen her in forever. And then on Thursday night, I'll be joining Joanne in a Meditation at Wild Women's Studio in Laconia.

I'm also re-reading Pamela Miles' book Reiki - A Comprehensive Guide, as well as consulting her website from time to time. I'm going to soak up all the education and experience I can. I don't want to feel out of touch again. If I'm out of touch with my Reiki, I'm out of touch with myself, and I don't want that.

Namaste
Love & Blessings to All

Checking in ...

I know ... It's been a while. It's not that I haven't been doing anything with my Reiki, I've just been neglecting to blog about it.

On March 6, 2010 I completed ART (Advanced Reiki Training) and, as was the case with Level I and Level II attunements, I had a couple of interesting experiences. I had a vision of myself in a previous life ... looked like ancient Roman times. I was dressed in a white toga-like dress with gold braiding at the waist and I was wearing sandals. I had long brown hair which was partly pulled away from my face, but was also hanging down over my right shoulder. There was a man in front of me who was dressed as a gladiator or soldier, and he was forcibly being taken away, and I was very upset about. I was also being restrained. The feeling I got was that we were in love with each other, yet were not allowed to see each other because of class or social status or something. I also had the feeling that, in that lifetime, I never again loved anyone. So sad.

I also discovered a sister from a past life. Her name is Julia and, the way she's dressed, she looks to be from the late 1800's or early 1900's. She has long dark hair pulled back away from her face with a big bow attached, and her hair is trailing down her back in long banana-type curls. Kind of pollyanna-ish. According to my master/teacher, Beth Crawford, Julia has been with me since I was born. She has chosen to remain in spirit form rather than being re-born. I have felt her presence once since I found out about her (last night, in fact!).

Just after my father's death in 2006, I found out I had a sister Anne, also is spirit form. Apparently one of my mother's many pregnancies went a bit further than the others, and Anne would have been born before me, in this life. I remember when my Dad had one foot in this world and one foot in the next, he kept asking me who the little girl was. I found out a day or two after he died. This, of course, was before I discovered my own metaphysical gifts. I think Anne has since been re-born, because I no longer feel like she's with me or my parents any more.

Last weekend I went up to Maine to visit my sister Joanne and her very pregnant daughter, Jenna. As always I had an amazing time. We talked about Reiki and we did Angel Card Readings. We visited Bennett's Gems & Jewelry in Belfast, ME. I can HIGHLY recommend this wonderful little store for all your crystal needs. Anyway ... I went there telling myself that I did not need a new pendulum, but just when I thought I was done shopping, one of the pendulums called me. It's a beautiful amethyst pendulum and I just knew we were supposed to be together.

I also had an interesting experience with my niece Jenna. As I said, she is VERY pregnant, actually due in about 2 1/2 weeks. During the day on Saturday I started feeling achy, and by Saturday evening I was having pelvic and hip pain, and my lower back was killing me! During my level one attunement, I was told that, in addition to being a natural healer, I was an empath - able to feel what others around me feel. It seems that on Saturday evening, I was somehow connected to Jenna and was feeling all the uncomfortableness of late-stage pregnancy! Oy! Thankfully, we both felt better the next morning.

I have put together my Crystal Healing Grid and it now has a permanent home in my bedroom. Every night before retiring, I make it a point to send healing Reiki energy to the Earth, as well as to everyone in my Healing Book.

And, last but not least, I have acquired, at long last, a Tibetan Singing Bowl. I've been waiting to get one for such a long time, and I found the perfect one at a little place called Coyote Moon, also in Belfast, Maine. Currently, I'm using it for meditation, but I know there's also a healing component as well, and I'm anxious to investigate that.

So, that's it for now. Brightest Blessings to you.

Namaste!

January 4, 2010

B's back was really sore tonight. He worked a very long day. I started rubbing his back and I was guided to discontinue the massage and begin a Reiki treatment. 

I was guided to the area of soreness and he was drawing a lot of energy in that area. I was guided to have him turn over onto his back and his energy draw like doubled or tripled. I sensed the presence of an angel and came to realize that it was the Archangel Michael. I could sense his strength and his golden sword. I saw bright blues and purples. His presence was awesome. Simply awesome.




I got my book on angels and ascended spirits (by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.) and read about Michael. Dr. Virtue validated what I saw by saying that one can often see bright blues and purples when he's around.

Every time that happens, when I see or sense something and it's somehow validated, it just amazes me. I wonder "why me?" Who am I to have this amazing gift? I don't know the answer, but I'm grateful every day.

Namaste.

It's been forever ...

I haven't really done much with my Reiki lately. Life has been getting in the way. Holidays and family dramas are taking up much of my time. Hopefully, in the near future, things will settle down.

Snoring ...

October 14, 2009

I've been feeling very distracted and disjointed lately. Part of it is medication related, but part of it is just because I'm kind of overwhelmed and drifting.

My darling bf was at the house last night, and as has become our routine, I gave him a reiki treatment starting with his crown and moving down his body. His upper back area was pulling in a lot, so I spent quite a bit of time there. Of course, he had fallen asleep early in the treatment - he usually does - and at one point, he rolled over on to his side. He then began snoring. Just on a whim, I hovered one of my hands over his lower facial area and guess what!? The snoring stopped! I couldn't believe it! Then I realized that this was Spirit's way of reminding me of the awesome power of Reiki energy. I was also guided to get a table, so I'll be doing that soon. I ended the session thanking Spirit, the Angels, Archangels, and Reiki Guides for assisting in his treatment, and for guiding me in this quest.

Blessed be and Namaste!

Light dawns ...

October 9, 2009

Okay, so I agree ... I should know this by now. So my realization this morning is no great epiphany.

In wondering why I'm all of a sudden so sore, it occurred to me that colder temperatures are on the way which will aggravate my fibromyalgia. Duh! Like I said, I should be used to this by now, but it seems to take me by suprise every fall. So now I'm back on a steady diet of Advil / Aleve / Flexeril (occasionally).

It's been my habit in the morning to send some distance Reiki to my son. Between the Advil I took this morning and the Reiki I sent, I got to work feeling great!

The moral of the story? Do more Reiki!

I also sent an email to my friend DM offering some complementary Reiki. She is very stressed right now and I have no doubt the Reiki would help calm and center her.

Two mini sessions

October 7, 2009

Last night B's back was sore and stiff. Gave him a 20 minute session focusing on his lower back and spine. He fell asleep almost immediately.

S just came into my office a few minutes ago saying she had a headache. Did Reiki on her, focusing on her head, neck and shoulders. Noticed that her right side was drawing more energy than her left. When I finished, I thanked Spirit, did a dry bath on myself, and instructed S to just relax in the energy for a few minutes. Soon after, she reported that her headache was gone. I noticed that my right shoulder was not in as much pain as before I began.

I then held Apache Tears in each hand for grounding and centering. Still doubting myself. It's hard to break a habit that's been with me for years. But I'm trying to learn to just trust Spirit and know that the Energy will go where it's needed.
