Everything flows from acceptance. When you align yourself with the Universe and its love for you, you are challenged to love and accept yourself more than ever before.
Self-acceptance, love, and approval are only difficult because we have been taught its opposite for so long.
Shame is a habit, but it is not our nature. When you were a tiny little baby, you trusted the Universe, you trusted yourself, you knew that you were loveable, just because.
Just so. You loved yourself once; even if you don’t remember, you truly did. And you can love yourself and accept yourself that sweetly again.
How do you start to communicate when everything is so intense? Hedy Schleifer has a brilliant metaphor for creating a space of deep connection with those you love. In her TED talk, she discusses how you can cross the bridge and create safe and sacred space to have real conversations.
You’ll be captivated as I was with her sparkling eyes and beautiful story of connecting deeply with her mother. The way she describes the process of connection is absolutely brilliant.
In a disconnected world, it can seem like our only option is to become callous and hardened. But there’s another way.
The energy of compassion and kindness is not some weak force. It’s the energy of the Universe itself. When you activate kindness in your heart, you become a channel of powerful energy.
What to say when you don’t know what to say. Like many, I was stunned into horrified silence by the brutal and unjust murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Even now, I write and rewrite this. There are no words. Grief steals them from me. Even the word ‘grief’ isn’t fair or adequate.
Many condolences to the Floyd family and every family who has lost someone to hate.
Words feel feeble when faced with the mountain of injustice that has been ‘normal’ for centuries.
The extent of this wound is deep. And it affects everyone. I have a few ideas I share below on how lightworkers, healers, empaths and allies can use their greatest gifts of compassion and empathy to begin the healing process. And to do so in a way that keeps you grounded in love, courage, and action.
Reiki has been a strong support for us through this and so many other things. It’s a beautiful system of flowing universal life force energy through the system to balance mind, body, and spirit.
You will be amazed at some of the stories of growth and transformation that happen because of Reiki.
Just when I think my heart can’t break any more… It does.
I just heard about the mass shooting in Nova Scotia. And I broke down in tears. Again.
Since COVID-19 started, I’ve been awash in emotions. Part of being a sensitive person, and filled with empathy, is having a lot of emotions about the state of the world. I feel things very deeply. When I hear about world and local tragedies, it affects me greatly. I get overcome with grief when I hear about people passing in tragic and senseless ways. And this latest bit of news is the further breaking open of my heart.
I don’t know anyone in Nova Scotia. My heart breaks just the same. The deepest condolences to all those families. And to every family of someone who has lost someone dear to them. It’s all so much.
Maybe you’re similar? A big-hearted, feeling kind of person. You FEEL. Big emotions. For yourself and you feel the emotions of others too.
Even though it hurts so much in times like these, I want you to stay open. It’s so important to retain those beautiful, empathetic and energetic gifts. Keep reading, and I’ll tell you how to stay in that high frequency and still be energetically and emotionally safe. How to keep doing your soulful, creative work in the world even though you may be going through a lot personally and managing the energy of the collective.

I need help.
We all do. Every one of us.
To get through this time (and the ones ahead, but let’s stay present!), we need to all learn how to ask for help.
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.
