Who Are You?

  Who are we, really? Are we more than our labels, societal roles, familial roles or classifications? Why do we do what we do in our lives, truly? In other words, are we more than what we do or who we seem to be on the outside? Who am I? These questions can help us to get to the heart…

Share the Love at Christmas All Year Long

All There Is, Is Love I was thinking about how we crave love. As human beings, love is integral to our health and  survival as newborns and children. Hardwired into our psyches, the lack of holding and cuddling a baby can lead to failure to thrive and a host of other psychological problems, if the child survives the neglect. We…

Treasure Yourself

Have you ever treasured yourself?   Have you ever looked into your own eyes in a mirror and smiled genuinely? Have you ever put your hands over your belly and closed your eyes, thanking the Universe within for yourself? I believe in unanswered questions Sometimes an answer shuts down the asking process too quickly. Sometimes, an unanswered question can be…

LOVE Your Boo Monster!

When I was studying Shamanism with a teacher years ago, I was accused of loving my negative ego. Instead of making my ego shut up, or ignoring it, or quieting my mind, the teacher accused me of listening to and allowing it to run my life. This was sure to be detrimental to my spiritual growth, the idea being that I should give…

Answers

I knew my heart's desire was heard, but Spirit is never in a rush to tell me the answers, as much as I'd like them NOW, while I'm young! Pay Attention Answers come in their own order and usually through our own experiences. I find them by paying attention and opening my heart to the deeper meanings and symbolic truths…

Why Practice Reiki?

Many of my Reiki 1 students, despite writing rave evaluations about their experiences in class, do not move on to Reiki 2. Some don't practice regularly. I've always wondered about that, and I have many theories. I realize that there is no one answer, and that each person has their own life story. I respect that, too. After all, at…

Maybe I Was Born This Way…

Each of us can choose how to live. I have chosen to live in service to the Divine Beloved and to the Divine in others, and I've done this for a long time. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a Catholic nun. Hmm..maybe I was born this way.. In Reiki, we are taught to become hollow reeds for the…

You Don’t Need Fixing

I was at a Reiki Share the other night. That's a place where Reiki practitioners come together to share Reiki with one another. As each one took their turn on the table,  enveloped in shared healing energy, they seemed so radiantly beautiful. Each one, like a unique rose in a bouquet, had a story all their own, yet was an integral part of…

Will I Still Be Me?

Reiki is spiritual work, and heals us from the inside out. Ultimately, instead of being less YOU as you progress on your spiritual path, you become more clearly yourself, freed more and more from other's expectations for you, and even free from what you may have thought you needed to become happier. As you feel your connection to the Divine through meditation,…

It’s not a Performance, it’s Service with Compassion

When a client comes to me for their first Reiki session, I sometimes feel apprehension or performance anxiety, even though I am confident in what I bring to the session. My stomach starts to churn, and then I realize what's happening and how I'm falling into old habits of worrying about presentation and resolution, as if I must put on…
