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.

Clearing Environmental Toxins

Here is a picture of Iris that I took from her website.

Here is a picture of Isis that I took from her website.

Environmental toxins are everywhere. You can easily become overwhelmed at how toxic our environment can be. Energy work – Healing Touch and Reiki treatments – are incredibly helpful in keeping our physical and energetic body clear.

This really became obvious to me after I attended an amazing talk and dinner by Isis Melinda Israel. She was presenting a line of cookware from a company called Saladmaster.

Iris is one of those people I could listen to for days; the depth of her knowledge about food and health was stunning. As she prepared us a very delicious vegan dinner, she gave a healing reference for every ingredient she used in the meal. She made me so aware how healing food can be. Food is medicine.

February 25, 2017: A Reiki Workshop On Detoxing, Clearing and Balancing Practices For Healers

img_1745-1

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.

Animal Reiki At The Shelter

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.

Recommit To Your New Year Resolutions, Intentions And Promises

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.

“Supporting Clients Going Through Chemotherapy” An Article in Energy Magazine

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.

The Balance of Giving And Receiving

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.
