Healing: The Space To Let Go

Are you afraid that if you start getting in touch with all the emotions you have in this moment, you might fall apart? That it would hurt too much? That if you became fully aware of your feelings you might never stop crying?

Last week was a rough one for California. Many of us are still spinning. Even if we were lucky enough to not have someone close to us in the direct path of the wildfires, the smoke in the air was a constant, tangible reminder of the tragedy that was raging out of control so close by.

Holding all those emotions back is exhausting. It takes so much energy to keep grief sorrow, anger, and fear inside. Once you give yourself the space and the time to let go of whatever you might need to release at this time, you will feel less fatigued and more capable of coping.

A Healing or Breathwork session is the perfect place to get the support you need to clear any emotions that are blocking your physical body, your life, your healing, and your experience of being fully present for all that is in this moment.

Give yourself the space to let go.

Healing In These Times: We Are All Connected

I could not sleep last Sunday night.

When I heard the Monday morning news, I learned another “psychic storm” had occurred, this time in Las Vegas. I realized why I had felt so restless and irritated the night before. Many people can feel events in the collective unconscious, can sense the pain of others on the opposite side of the world when a large scale tragedy occurs. I didn’t think I had this “gift,” but I think many of us are now more aware of how energetically connected we are than any other time in our lives.

Many of my clients, friends and healing practitioners report that they are waking up in the morning filled with dread, grief, anxiety, hopelessness, and fear. Then they tell me they listen to the morning news and just feel worse.

How can we survive the violence, the loss, the craziness of these times? How can we stay present, grounded and centered? How do we as teachers go to school each day and face our students? How do we as mothers get out of bed and take care of our children? How do we stay present in times like this?

One thing about the collective unconscious is that it is a collective. We are all connected. You are not alone. The emotions in your energy field at any given time are being felt all over the country, all over the world. When you hold, balance and ground the energy in your own body, and your life, you are healing the collective. You are making a difference. Our personal healing heals the world.

This is the time for radical self-care. Turn off the news if you need to. Turn on and monitor the current events each day,  if that helps you feel safer. Talk to your friends, go for a walk in the woods, meditate, or get a healing to balance your chakras. This is a blog about energetic healing, so I of course highly recommend booking a Reiki, Healing Touch or a Breathwork session. My clients are greatly benefiting from their sessions.

Check out Kathleen Prasad’s simple animal healing meditation written for those affected by war. Do this meditation for people lost in or traumatized by war, people who have been affected by a violent shooting, or for those who don’t have healthcare. Do this meditation for yourself and all those who are suffering from the same issues and emotions you are in this moment.

 

“May the peace which we create today in our hearts radiate out and help to heal the world.”

– Kathleen Prasad

Remember: You are not alone. We are all connected. Your personal healing affects the whole planet.

The Reiki Precepts: Just For Today

 

Just for Today
Do not Anger
Do not Worry
Be Grateful
Do your work Diligently
Be Compassionate to yourself and all living beings

In my daily meditations, I read the Reiki Precepts, the guidelines for living that Mikao Usui gave his students. Sometimes one line will linger with me for the entire day.  Sometimes, I will find myself contemplating one line for a whole week.

This week I was struck by the line “Just For Today.”

“Just for Today” means right now, in this moment, no yesterday to be angry about, and no future to be worried about. I realized that if I could just fully embrace this one line, I would then easily comprehend all five of the precepts.

It’s all about “Just For Today.” All the precepts point back to being present.

Healing The World: The Peace Experiment

How can we energetically heal the planet?

Lynne McTaggart has a plan. Click below to find out more about an event she is hosting called the Peace Experiment. I signed up.

The Peace Experiment is a free event that runs from Sept. 30th to Oct. 5th, 2017 and will be webcast around the world. If you sign up, you’ll receive a daily streaming webcast over the six days and full instructions about how to take part in the live experiment.

I wrote about Lynne McTaggart over six years ago; she was and still is, a huge source of information and inspiration. She wrote a book in 2008 called The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe that I listened to about 100 times. It was the only CD I had in my car for about six months.

“The Field” is an energy that connects all living things across space and time and provides a practical working model for how healing works. Click here and listen to McTaggart clearly explain how everyone individually has the power to create with intention and how we can collectively heal and transform our world.

Pamela Miles: The Reiki Writer, Teacher And Self-Care Genius

“There are as many ways to practice Reiki self-treatment as there are Reiki practitioners, and the best way to practice is clearly the way you actually will practice.”

-Pamela Miles

This week I would like to thank Pamela Miles for her extensive research and writing on Reiki practice. I have been reading her blog for years, and I am constantly inspired by her clarity and commitment to the system of Reiki. Her website is a wealth of information.

Check out this blog post she wrote about Reiki Self-Treatment. Even if you have never taken a Reiki class, try her self-treatment protocol and notice how you feel afterward.

Reiki Workshop: A Commitment To Radical Self-Care

Version 2

Community! Community! Community!

Last Saturday I co-taught a workshop called Detoxing, Clearing and Balancing Practices For Healers with Joy Snipes and Elizabeth Fulmer. This community was built around the Reiki practice of Elizabeth Fulmer and ReikiFocus. Because of Elizabeth, there is a lot of healing happening in Davis, California.

Gathering in circles, classes and meditation groups is so powerful. The group energy last Saturday was deeply healing.

Below is part of a meditation we shared. Please feel free to use any part of this meditation in any way you feel inspired. Use it in your own circles, prayer groups, workshops, personal meditations or blog posts.

The energy of the world has changed in the last few months. Change is stressful, and many people are afraid, many people are angry, and many do not feel safe.

We as Reiki Practitioners are being called to deepen our connection to source and hold sacred space outside the healing room, as well as in our sessions.

We can only do this if we commit to staying clear and balanced.

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

This workshop is a commitment to radical self-care, a commitment to staying connected to the sacred space within ourselves. Only by holding the peace internally can we create peace externally.

When there are times when we can’t connect to that sacred space within ourselves, we can always connect to this commitment.

By staying clear, connected and open, we can act from our deepest intuition and our highest wisdom.

By setting the intention to be grounded with an open heart, we are in the greatest service to our clients, our community, and the planet. This is the greatest healing we can give the world.

At this time there is much chaos in the world. Focus on the stillness and support all around you. Sacred space can hold it all.

We are setting our intention to not fight the darkness, but to move toward the light.
