Why I love Reiki


I will always be thankful for the beautiful energy of Reiki and all of the many ways it has touched my life.

Reiki has given me faith in my divine essence, showing me the light I cultivate within.

Being attuned to the energy symbols has allowed me to open back up to my intuitive senses, allowing a conscious stream of energy and love to flow through me.

Learning about Reiki has allowed me to develop a deeper sense of compassion for myself and others.

I have softened into my unique way of being and watched myself and the people in my life Flourish, through holding a space of kindness and acceptance.

It’s allowed me to be more aware of my own mental patterns and the lessons to be learned for Transcending them.

Reiki has allowed me to tap into my creative side finding a love for writing that I didn’t realize I possessed.

It’s heightened my intuition and continues to do so.

Its shown me my connection to the divine love within me allowing me to dream and visualize a beautiful life for myself and humanity.

Reiki has shown me that I have a choice to perceive my life situation as a help or a hindrance.

I can learn and grow and evolve within any challenge.

Reiki has taught me that my body is a temple for the divine that flows through me. When I nourish it through meditation, good food, and physical activity, I thrive.

 

 

Learning about Reiki has given me the courage to shine my light even when I’m scared of how I might look to others.

It has enabled me to cultivate the tools needed to heal and forgive myself and others so I may feel at peace.

I’m always learning I am always growing I look forward to the beautiful lessons and big love this life has to offer me.

The Last Banana Banana Bread Recipe: How to make the most out of procrastination


(If you want to skip ahead to the recipe and not read into all the reasons that I hoard bananas, just click here!)

I’ve got a funny little quirk. I love bananas. I buy big bunches of them (the organic kind) whenever I’m shopping. And I snarf them all up as I go through the week — except — except the last one!

That last banana — oh how sad! I leave it in the fruit bowl. I don’t eat it. I wait. It’s the last one so I save it until it can hardly be called a banana anymore! Poor thing.

Why wait?

I’m not really sure. Sometimes you leave the last bite of something out of a social sense of sharing. But I’m really the only one in my house that eats them. Maybe I’m using it as a sad and sagging little reminder that I need to go shopping for groceries soon. Or maybe I’m saving it for a ‘rainy day’ when I need a little banana to nourish me.

Well, you may now be thinking ‘Why is she talking to me about bananas?’ And really, this little quirky story isn’t really about bananas at all (though I think they’re great).

No. Its really about waiting for something really really good. Something you’ve always wanted, something you’ve been waiting for & saving for & planning on.

And yet, the expiration date comes and goes. And you’re still waiting to start.

Hanging on to perishable things. That’s really what it’s about. That little wise banana sitting in my fruit bowl is a great teacher about the power of now. It’s not going to hold onto its ripeness for me. It’s following its nature.

Love in the face of rejection: When your teen pushes you away


Does your teen make a plan with you and then ditch you for her friends?
Does your teen say hurtful things to you?
Does your teen squirm away when you try to be physically affectionate?

Even the nicest teens say mean things.

True story:
I remember looking at a photo of my Mom when she was a young woman wearing plaid bellbottoms, and I said, “Did you actually think you looked GOOD back then?”
Ouch! Sorry, Mom.

Quantum Leaps: How Reiki Works


I have always been fascinated by distance Reiki. When I first learned about energy healing, I read stories about people being healed through sessions where the practitioner and the client were in different places, sometimes even different cities or countries. The effect of those Reiki sessions was just as powerful and profound as when they were done in person. Now that I am a Reiki Master, I have personally experienced and witnessed amazing changes in distance Reiki Sessions.

As a practitioner, I don’t do anything differently when I do a distance session compared to an in-person session, except I am visualizing putting my hands on the person and we are chatting on the phone. It is fascinating to my science brain.

Enjoying the Journey


“So often we become so focused on the finish line, that we fail to enjoy the journey.” –Dieter F. Uchtdorf

This has been coming up for me a lot lately.

In a world where we’re always striving to be someone or get somewhere, when I take a moment to appreciate my surroundings, and notice all my senses — how I’m feeling, what thoughts are swirling around me, and whether they’re serving me or not — I can consciously make a choice to react differently, because I care how I feel in this moment.

Just for Today, I will be Grateful


Just for today, I will be grateful.

I can’t commit to being happy all the time, but I can commit to being grateful, one day at a time. In fact, it is my daily commitment to gratitude that keeps me going. Giving thanks has been part of my life for as long as I can remember; prayers at meals and bedtime, and going around the table at Thanksgiving to say out loud, in front of everyone, what I am grateful for have become rituals that I enjoy. Every time I sit down to write a birthday card I end up expressing gratitude for the qualities in that person that touch my life. Another gratitude practice of mine is when I’m feeling frazzled or anxious, I get out my journal and write out pages of things I’m grateful for, to bring me back to a place of calm and appreciation. At the end of the day, I am most grateful for my family and my health, and all my other worries seem small.

Courage: Why stretching is good


After two years of writing and editing and writing and more editing… my first book is days away from being released. I’m riding through waves of courage and vulnerability that I have never before experienced with such soul-aching intensity.

At times, I cannot stop the tears of fulfillment from flowing. At others, I feel like I am free-falling. The weightlessness at the top of the rollercoaster seems to be stitched to me like Peter Pan’s shadow.
