Sacred Space

“When we give ourselves the chance to let go of all our tension, the body’s natural capacity to heal itself can begin to work.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh.”

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.

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 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.

“Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.”

  – Ram Dass

 

It is time to connect with that which is greater than ourselves.

There is so much support, energy and guidance available for every one of us.

All we have to do is tap into it. It takes courage and commitment to take the time, quiet our mind, and let whatever needs to surface come up to be consciously released. It takes a tremendous amount of self-love and compassion to keep our hearts open.

Just by connecting with Higher Consciousness, we connect with All-That-Is, Our True Self, Our Highest Guidance, which is a profoundly healing state.

How can you connect with this healing space, with this inner wisdom?

Meditation? A walk in the woods? Music? A Breathwork session? A Reiki or Healing Touch Treatment?

Now is the time for radical self-care.

This is the time to clear and ground ourselves so we can act from our highest wisdom.

 

 Jeri Lawson will be at a Breathwork Retreat today through Sunday, connecting with her highest wisdom. She is available for Healing Touch, Reiki, and Clarity Breathwork sessions again on Monday, November 21st, 2016  in the Temescal Area of Oakland, California 510-601-9632

 

For Today Only:
Do not Anger
Do not Worry
Be Grateful
Be Honest in your Work
Be Compassionate to Yourself and Others

Version 2

Do you want to meditate, yet can’t seem to sit still for even two minutes? Do you start a daily practice for a few days and then suddenly can’t find the time? Does meditating bring up emotions that make you too uncomfortable to continue?

Grounding and energetically aligning your energy with a Reiki or Healing Touch session makes meditation so much easier. Scheduling a healing is a wonderful way to recommit and deepen your meditation practice.

I have had clients who were so busy for so long, that even the thought of sitting still for any length of time stressed them out. Yet, after few healing sessions, they relaxed into a solid daily meditation practice. The issues, memories, habitual thought patterns and stagnate energy that was initially blocking them fell away when their energy field came into balance.  Their meditation practice became a profoundly peaceful and enjoyable part of their day. I remember one client telling me many years ago: “I actually look forward to meditating now.”

“If every 8-year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” – Dalai Lama

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.”Caroline Myss

“Meditation: Because some answers can only be found on the Inner net.”Shira Tamir

Research has caught up with the ancient practice of smudging! This article by Sayer Ji is well worth reading, even though you have to navigate a few pop-up menus and other advertisements.

.

I have always found the smell of sage to be calming and grounding, so I have been smudging my healing space ever since I started my Reiki and Healing Touch business. Now science is validating this traditional intuitive practice.

.

It is now proven that the burning of medicinal herbs not only clears aerial bacterial populations by 94% within one hour, but keeps a contained room decontaminated for a full day after the smudging. Even one month after smudging, a room will still be clear of many pathogenic bacteria. I had no idea smudging did all this.

IMG_1255It’s healing.

As humans, we all have the ability to heal ourselves and hold space for others to heal.

Put your hands on your heart right now and tune into yourself for a minute. What do you feel? The pressure of your hand? Heat? Pulsing? Do you feel more present? Emotion? Space?

Take another full minute right now as you read this, and breath the energy of your hands into your heart. Notice what you notice. No judgement. Just be aware. Are you surprised at how much you can feel?

We are all superheros.

 

If you are interested in leaning more about your super powers, take a class in Healing Touch or Reiki.

There is a Level One Healing Touch Class coming up in Lafayette, CA, Oct 15 & 16, 2016. Taught by a wonderful healer and a woman I have worked with for years – Laurie Ratto RN, HTCP and CCA.

There is an amazing Reiki teacher and community in Davis, California. Check out Elizabeth A Fulmer, RMT, KMT, HTP-A and her website: ReikiFocus.

If you love animals, go to Kathleen Prasad’s Animal Reiki Source. She teaches in Santa Rosa, California, and all over the country.

Learn to access your deeper potential. Super powers can come in handy.

IMG_6930After a healing, the most common statement clients make is “I feel so relaxed.”

Like they didn’t know it was possible.

They are not just relaxed, my clients are experiencing what it is like to be grounded, with their chakras open and their energy balanced.

It feels really good.

Being grounded and balanced is so incredibly healing. When my biofield is balanced and my chakras are open, I can best describe it as feeling expanded, energized, relaxed and grounded all in the same moment.

For me, it’s a simple, clear feeling.

When was the last time you felt deeply relaxed and balanced? What makes you feel expanded and open?

Singing? Running, Golfing? Painting? Reading In the Garden? Playing With your dog or walking in the woods?

There are many ways we can keep our auras open and clear – do the things that make you happy. You don’t even have to get an energy session to bring you into energetic balance, although it certainly helps.

And sometimes getting a healing is just about feeling good.
