Healing: The Process Of Relaxing Can Energize Your Life

Are you feeling stressed? When was the last time you truly relaxed?

When the body fully relaxes, contraction in the muscles, fascia, organs, and diaphragm also relaxes.

This allows energy, the breath, and the blood in the body to flow freely and every cell in the body receives more oxygen.

During healing sessions, I often see my client’s face flush, muscles release with spasms, and I feel my client’s overall energy level increase. When my clients begin to relax, they often say they feel much more energized.

In the last few months, more people are scheduling Reiki and Healing Touch sessions because they are feeling stressed. After the healing session, they are amazed at how much more energy they have. In some cases the shift is dramatic.

The simple state of being relaxed heals every level of our being.

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.

A Space To Let Go

 

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.”

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.

See you there!

A Practice For Peace

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.

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.

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.

Acting From Our Highest Wisdom

 

c. Jeri Lawson 2016 All Rights Reserved

 

“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
