Don’t be Satisfied with a Very Unsatisfactory Satisfaction

I’m back and I’m excited about the prospects of working with YOU again! After three months away from one-on-one Intuitive Reiki Sessions and the Spirit Immersion Program, I’m happy to be starting up again today! My Quiet Journey I’ve spent the last few months healing myself, resting, and enjoying the quietness of nature. I’ve had quite the opportunity to look at…

Service Is An Act of Love

Service. What is it and why bother? I seriously never hear this word from people any more. It’s as if it doesn’t even exist. There’s lots of talk about doing what you love, living in the present moment, and enjoying the now and the gifts we have. There’s talk of manifesting stuff we want. And there’s some discussion around sharing what’s…

Message for Today: Just do it!

Hmmm. Yes, you’ve heard that before. I’m talking about your intuition here, as I borrow from Nike. 😜 When we receive exciting guidance for our lives, it seems to me it is always in the now moment. Intuition comes in as a Swoosh! (Sorry, couldn’t resist! 😆) ...and we get excited and delighted with the possibilities! Yay! But sometimes, we…

We Are All the Same, Except Different

Sometimes we look at people who strike us as especially aware, awake, or enlightened as being better than us. We want what they have, and we feel jealous because they embody our ideal selves. Seeing that in others can spur us on to become our own best selves, but the truth about awakening is that it is available to all…

Loving Your Inner Critic
Dear me, I choose a new inner voice...

Loving Your Inner Critic

Do you know your inner critic? The inner critic is that voice in your mind that tells you the irrational, fear-provoking thoughts that you’ve been rehearsing much of your life. This inner critic can shake your foundation with statements such as: “You can’t do that!” “That’s too scary. Better not go!” “You’re not lovable!” “Shut up! You don’t know what…

Balance and Love

I once had a friend who allowed her son to ride his bicycle without a helmet. I asked her why she didn’t demand that he wear one. This was 30 years ago, and I remember her response to this day. She said “I trust God to protect him.” I remember this because I didn’t have a reply for her. I…

Desire

  What Is It That We Want? I have the answer: Satisfaction. Consider the fact that when each and every desire we have is fulfilled, we all get a great “Ahhh” feeling. Whether you call it satisfaction, peacefulness, happiness, or bliss, for all of us, it is the same. No matter what we want, positive or negative though it may…

Silence is golden

The Portuguese Man O'War has no propulsion system of its own. Its top looks like a Portuguese war helmet. It moves with the flow of the ocean. It eats what comes into its path. It's the perfect zen master of the sea, powerful and silent, floating freely. I saw a few of these last week while kayaking among the mangroves…

Feeling Feelings? The Plight of Empaths

Because many Reiki practitioners are empaths, a common discussion among practitioners revolves around the suffering that is felt when a friend or client has an illness or is going through a situation that seems sad. Events Can't Be Judged As an empath, I always try to remember that what others are experiencing is not random and cruel. I have found,…

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real
Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering in two the quiet that's already there.

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real

We tend to see yogis, lamas, and other spiritual leaders as being in a class all their own. “That level of spirituality is unattainable for me!,” we may think. We may feel “less than” and unworthy. We lament, “For God’s sake, the sheer amount of work involved to get there must be an insurmountable amount of sweat and sacrifice!” We…
