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.

A hug from Wayne


This week Dr. Wayne W. Dyer left his body. While he had his health issues over the years, he was so active and vibrant that his death still comes as a shock.

I never had the opportunity to meet Wayne in person, but I felt, as you may too, that I really did know him. He was so personable and open about his struggles and triumphs that listening to his HayHouse Radio show always felt like chatting over coffee with a great friend and mentor.

You can always choose a new thought


You are powerful. Your ability to create and focus your attention and energy is phenomenal. 

And I really mean that. You can create phenomena. 

Just simply by visualizing an outcome, it can occur. 
That focus, on what you want, begins shifting energy within you. 

When the energy shifts, everything else can too. I would venture to say that nothing material can shift until the energy shifts first. 

Shifting energy is as simple as shifting your point of focus. Choosing to focus on a positive intention, looking for a solution, noticing how things are getting better, all of this brings a powerful energy forward. This shift in the energetic tone that fills up your bubble, your aura, begins the heavy work of shifting your experience. 

Since matter is slower and heavier than thought, it has more inertia to it. 

Thoughts and energy materializes instantly, but matter takes longer. This is really good. It means that we don’t need to fear the instant outcome of our negative thoughts. But it does kick up the heat around developing mental discipline over which thoughts are worth having. 

Another factor working in our favour is that positive thoughts are far, far stronger than negative ones. This is why only a brief time spent affirming a positive statement has such huge effects, even if our normal mental tone is quite dismal. 

Choosing a positive thought is also fully within our power. We can override the negative self talk by deliberately ignoring it and replacing it with its opposite. Even a tiny nudge can begin the process of shifting the energy and then the matter. Positivity creates movement. 

When things start moving, anything is possible. 

Is it a storm or is it potential for new life?


The pressure building in the sky makes my head ache and shift. I feel it in my eyes. It is a word, unspoken, on the lips of the sky. 

But is it really a storm? Is it disruption or is it renewal?

Both. 

But how you look at the same moody sky changes everything. 

Under its brooding brow lies new sprigs of spring. Fresh air and a softness is there too. 

New sprouts are there. 

Just waiting for their moment to blossom and burst forth in a riot of colour and fragrance. 

If you stop with me. And sit for a bit. 

You will see it too. 
That is hope, my loves. 

It is all waiting there for you. 

Dream a little dream for me


It can be so easy to hold someone else’s dream in your mind. I can easily see each and every one of you as wildly happy, healthy, joyful, and abundant. It is so easy.

 It is likely why crowdfunding and microlending sites are so fun. We get to share in someone else’s dream and be that little angel that helps make it reality. The true success is not so much that the project gets funded, which most do, but that all of those eyes have shared the same vision, if only for a moment. 

That brief look is hugely powerful. We can instantly dream alongside all of the other dreamers. We can share in the magic, if only for a moment. The possibilities that can happen are amazing when we dream a better dream for ourselves and others. 

I truly believe the litmus test in self healing is to hold the positive vision for your own projects as easily as you hold it for others. 

Can you see yourself as wildly happy, healthy, joyful, and abundant? Can you see that dream for you as easily as you see it for me?
If so, huzzah! 

Love, compassion, and dreams are just as much yours as they are mine. You deserve this. You are allowed this. You can have this. It is already yours. 

What if


What if you were worthy of all good you have and seek simply because you are human?

What if it was all on the way right now and all you need to do is sit still in the sun on a patio?

What if it was all so much easier and effortless than you ever believed?

What if it was all so very easy?

As easy as a morning stretch or a nighttime cuddle. As easy as breathing a sigh of relief or a simple walk in the full moon light. 

Yes. 

That seems right. 

Crowd surfing the universe 


There are moments in receiving a Reiki session where you stop trying to record all the information and just fall silent. The conscious mind stills. A slack tide in the midst of it all.

In that space that opens up, pure energy falls in and fills your intention to fullness. In these moments of letting go and surrendering, you are able to manifest anything. And it only takes a moment.

Your wishes become real All manner of forces begin to work on your behalf in ways that you can not possibly imagine.

Don’t try to figure it all out all of the time.

Trust.

Signs of Spring: Little love notes from the Universe


Spring begins in the depths of winter.  There is always the hidden promise of warmer weather and easier times.

Just like the seasons, our lives are just cycles within cycles. Our wishes begin manifesting not when we receive them, but right in the moment of decision. Right at the moment where we begin to think, “There must be something more”, that is when the seeds are sown.

Gratitude and appreciation are the sun and rain that allow possibility to blossom into reality. Noticing even the tiniest sign that things are getting better creates forward momentum. We received our results earlier because the intensity of our energy is directed towards what we want.

Look for something tiny. Some tiny sign that all you have been asking for all your life is on its way. Open up to the possibility that you are worthy of this because you exist. Notice all the ways the Universe is trying to deliver it to you.

Say thank you.

I am willing to change: The transformative power of a simple statement


I had the recent joy of being attuned by my Master level students in class. It is such a pleasure to be the receiver. This is especially sweet since I spend so much of my time teaching. Getting the chance to receive Reiki is bliss.

In an attunement to Reiki, a tremendous amount of ki (chi) is channeled into the receiver by the Reiki Master. It basically anchors in the energy into the body and allows the person to have instant access to Reiki. It feels amazing. It is a very profound meditative state that you enter and on the other side you are more centered, more powerful, and more peaceful.

It is funny, then, that I would start coughing in the middle of it all. Funny because the affirmation for coughing is “I am willing to change!” No cough before the attunement, no cough after. Just a bunch of change! As soon as I relaxed and was both willing to receive and to change, the cough disappeared.

Just like magic!

Or maybe more accurately, just like Reiki.

As soon as I was willing to change, I did. As soon as I was willing to receive more than I was giving, the coughing completely gone.

That is simple. That is powerful.

Even more importantly, I was able to fully receive the awesome attunements!

Just like riding a bike: Trading in perfectionism for joyfulness


I love my bike. Um… Bicycle for you motorcycle enthusiasts… I love my bicycle.

I love the simple process of spinning the cranks and the glide of the tires. I love the balance, the repetition, the wind. I love the forward momentum generated by my own efforts. I love that the goal of every trip is to return home.

That simplicity and ease became my intention for my last Reiki session with a few of my graduated master students.

I am in the process of finishing my book and I have been experiencing perfectionism rise up and derail my progress. I used Reiki to begin the process of shifting that unproductive pattern. And every Reiki session starts with a positively worded intention.

What if… What if writing the remainder of the book could be as easy as riding my beloved bicycle?

Can it really be that simple?

Yes.

I believe so.

Reiki is amazing. It shifts and transforms the underlying patterns. Old memories and past hurts are just gently released and then filled with light.

I feel calm. I feel peaceful. I feel ready to make some mistakes. I am prepared to publish my imperfect book, to create something that can help people.

I am ready.

Ready to do the work. Ride through all the gears. Patiently crank through the pages. Ride up the long, slow hill of editing. All just to complete the book only I can write.

What if it could all be that simple?

Just show up. Just push off of your support base. Lift up and get down to business. Find your rhythm. Balance. See new sights. Take pleasure in the experience. And return again and again to your home, altered, better, happier. Just gliding through life, free to be real, honest, and vulnerable.

Yes.

It is so.
