Here is an inspired message from my Animal Reiki Teacher, Kathleen Prasad.

“Own It”

“Trust Yourself”

“Lean Into Your Fear”

“Go For It”

Thank you, Kathleen.

The energy of the world has changed in the last few months and change can be stressful for many people.

Energetic practitioners of all modalities are being called to deepen our connection to source and hold space outside the healing room, as well as in our sessions.

We are so powerful. One grounded, centered person can shift the energy of an entire room.

I am very excited to write that I will be giving a workshop called: Energetic Practices: Clearing and Balancing for Healers with two amazing women –  Joy Snipes and Elizabeth Fulmer.

Elizabeth is a passionate, creative and committed Reiki teacher, and has nurtured a powerful community of Healers in Davis, California. Joy is a very insightful and gifted (like jaw-dropping amazing) healer. This is the second of four workshops we will be presenting together, and working with Joy and Elizabeth is awesome.

On Saturday, you will learn ways to clear, ground and balance your energy field. Then we will give and receive the energy work, practicing the techniques you can immediately use in your Reiki practice.

By focusing on staying clear and grounded with an open heart, we are in the greatest service to our clients, our community, and the planet. This class is a commitment to radical self-care, to holding a sacred space within ourselves. This is the greatest healing we can give the world.

Click here to register for Energetic Practices: Clearing and Balancing for Healers on Saturday, Feb 25, 2017, 9:30 am – 5 pm at the Stonegate Community Center in Davis California.

See you there!

droppedimage_1I met an amazing woman with a brilliant idea.

Her name is Halli Lorenzato.

She created a website called 8 Around The World.

Here is her idea:

“Each day at 8h and 20h (8AM and 8PM) for five minutes we join with others in our time zone and those half a world away to focus on peace and cooperation. Each hour others in the succeeding zones pause at their 8 o’clock.  Within 24 hours the whole world is included.

Please begin by letting go of any anger at yourself or others or fear within you. Then imagine others living peacefully, too.  Include your family and friends, then your community, your town, your country, and finally the entire world.”

This is my new practice. Twice a day I stop, tune in and notice any fear and anger in my body. Take today for instance. I bet there will be a lot for me to tune into at 8AM this morning and 8PM tonight.

What is so interesting, is the connection I feel to others that I know are doing this same practice. I am finding this connection very helpful in letting go of accumulating emotions in my body.

After years of healing work, I know there is no greater service to the planet than conscious self-care.

Thank you, Halli.  This idea will be useful during the next four years.

emerald_5-2 I have been volunteering at my local animal shelter for the last 4 or 5 weeks. My weekly shift is in the morning, and the first thing I do when I arrive is clean the floors, take out the trash and start a load of laundry. I found there are a lot of blankets, beds, and towels to keep clean in an animal shelter.

After cleaning, I have been helping with the cats. Last week I was asked to visit with Emerald, a beautiful gray and white short-haired cat. He had just had surgery a few days earlier to remove a cyst on his throat.

This picture does not capture Emerald’s sweet nature. He enjoyed my visit and obviously liked the Reiki. He purred and walked all around me during our time together. He even asked for some hands-on healing and to be brushed.

I felt fantastic afterward. Animal Reiki really opens my heart.

fireworks-1599821__480We are now into the 6th day of 2017.

Did you make any New Year resolutions?

Did you give up sugar? Decide to exercise regularly? Vow to drink more water?

Day six is about the time you start experiencing the physical symptoms of your body in detox because of a new diet.

Today also may be the day you might have found it impossible to get out of bed early enough to go to the gym. You ate half a candy bar yesterday. You may feel you are slipping back into the old habits you are trying to change.

It is time for the new year resolution reality check.

True change comes from recommitment. If you did eat that candy bar yesterday: let it go. Remove all the candy bars from your kitchen and office area and start again. Recommit. You didn’t fail. You are learning how to set yourself up for success. Change is all about being in the moment.

Plan a gym workout later in the day if you can’t get up early. Or maybe working out everyday is unrealistic for you at this time – redefine your goals and work out every other day. New Year resolutions are a good way to begin new projects and create new habits, but often (I raise my hand) we set some very unrealistic goals for ourselves.

Healing Touch and Reiki treatments are incredibly helpful when you are making changes in your life. Especially when you are cleaning up your diet and your body is cleansing, a Healing Touch session can help you release the toxins in your physical body that will reduce detox symptoms like muscle pain, headaches and, fatigue and irritability.

Healing sessions balance all levels of your being: emotional, mental and physical. Making changes in your life is so much easier when your energy field is in balance.

c. Jeri Lawson 2016 "Stay Grounded" All Rights ReservedLast week was a crazy busy, reschedule-every-client-three-times,  break through, break open, grab-the-sides-of-the-boat kind of week. Extremely wonderful, extremely intense. You know, the kind of week we all seem to be having at this moment in time.

On Saturday, I was desperately attempting to get caught up with life and be ready for work on Monday. My first goal was to get the laundry done. After starting three large loads in my building’s laundry room, I discovered the dryers in my building were not working.

I was not happy.

I had to instantly restructure my highly organized Things-To-Accomplish-On-Saturday list to get my clothes dry.

I pulled into the parking lot of Woody’s Laundromat and took the first load of wet laundry inside to throw in the dryer. I came back only minutes later to discover the tree by my car had just fallen over.

A very big tree. Roots were in the air. I was only gone for 5 minutes.

It felt like a message from the universe. In an instant I made a second list:

Stay grounded.

Be present.

Let go of List #1.

c. Jeri Lawson 2016 All Rights ReservedI finally wrote the article I had wanted to read when I first started my healing practice. I answered all the questions I had about how to support clients through chemotherapy energetically.

This is the culmination of 16 years of experience. Now all healers, especially Healing Touch Practitioners, may feel even more inspired to assist people who are going through chemotherapy.

It will be forever online and accessible at the Healing Touch Program’s Energy Magazine archive after January 5th.  You can download it here in a PDF version and here in the flip-page format. The article is on page 25 through 28.

If you are supporting someone going through chemotherapy, please feel free to call me with any questions. You can make a tremendous difference in your client, friend or family member’s healing journey.

Many thanks to Energy Magazine Editors Karin Ogren and the Margaret Nies.

c. Jeri Lawson 2016 All Rights ReservedThe more we receive, the more we can give.

There is a tremendous, yet subtle beauty, in the moment we let go and receive.

It is so profound to witness my clients relax into this receptive state during a Reiki session. Muscles release, breathing deepens, and energy begins to flow unobstructed through the physical body. There is often such an increase in energy flow, of life force energy, that my clients say they feel energized and relaxed at the same time.

This expansiveness, this receptivity, connects us to all of life. This healing state resets our nervous system, grounds and aligns our energy fields.

Now is the time to stay centered. Self-care is a powerful gift for us all.
