Welcome!

Welcome to Rain Shadow Reiki,

My name is Josslyn Streett.  I am an intuitive energy healer, teacher and reader.  That means I use my intuition as well as my knowledge of the world and other worlds to guide and help others.  I empower my clients to heal themselves through the use of Infinite and Divine Universal Energy, which I often choose to call God.  I work with clients both over the phone and in person so I can work with you, no matter where you are in the world.

Divine Source has called me to this work. I believe we each have our own different path to take and mine led me here.  I strive to do this work with the highest ethics, compassion and separation of ego self.  Energy work is my passion and my work both. It’s the most exciting and interesting profession I can think of.  Every time I work with a client I get even more enthusiastic about the work I get to do and know that through God, I am truly able to help people move forward and be happier in their lives.

Me and my youngest son on my favorite place in Sequim, The Dungeness Spit!

Where are we?

I work and live with my family on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in the state of Washington.  We are in the northwestern most part of the United States of America surrounded by the Olympic mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Hood Canal, the Hoh Rainforest and if you believe some books, vampires! LOL.

All of the main photos at the top of the page you see on my website have been taken by me on the peninsula.

What is a Rain Shadow?

The yellow areas get 15-20 inches of rain per year.  Sequim is in the top left area where the yellow is near all the green.  Light green gets 30-40 inches per year, dark green gets 40-60 and purple gets 140-180 per year.  Big difference.  www.wamaps.com

The northern part of the peninsula is unique because it is a rain shadow.  (top left part of the map near all the green is a little banana yellow area, that’s us.)  That means most of the rain falls onto the mountains and by the time it gets to us, the clouds are rained out.  Which means we get more sun than any other place in western Washington, less rain and less gray.  We get about 20 inches of rain a year and only a few days of snow in the winter.  It makes this area an ideal place to live and for me, to raise my family.

Magic!

Enjoy the photos of our beautiful home and check out the website while you are at it.  We feel it is an extremely magical place to live.   To read more about me and/or our journey you can go to “My Story. ”

If you were drawn to this website, it is no accident.  My guides must have a message for you.  I invite you to look around at what interests you and if you feel called to do so, email or call me for an appointment.  I am here for a reason, to spread Love and Light around the planet as I am drawn to do so.

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed.  It feels an impulsion.  This is the place to go now.  But the sky knows the reasons and patterns behind all clouds.  And you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”

Quotes I Like – Feelings Are Like Children…

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

Feelings are like children. You don’t want them driving the car, but you shouldn’t stuff them in the trunk either.”

Tim Robbins in ‘Thanks for Sharing’

Movie-ThanksForSharingOk, this just made me laugh, felt I had to share it.  I love when a complicated emotional situation can be put in a way to make it make sense and more lighthearted.  I tend to be on the serious side, so this helps me a lot.  This quote is from a good movie, worth checking out, ‘Thanks for Sharing’ with Tim Robbins, Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo, all who I enjoy very much.  It’s about sexual addiction but anyone with emotional healing issues may be able to relate to it.  I like the ending, it’s not overly ‘pollyanna’ but positive.  It lets us know that no matter what we are healing in life, it’s an ongoing job.  We are an ongoing piece of work.  We might as well have fun and find joy in between the hard stuff.

Family and Reiki is where I find my joy.  Where do you find yours?

Blessings, Josslyn

 

Reiki without permission? To Do or Not to Do…

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

*More links to other blogs on this topic at the bottom of the blog

THIS QUESTION COMES UP A LOT, SO I THOUGHT IT WAS TIME TO WRITE ABOUT IT

IS IT OK TO DO REIKI ON SOMEONE WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION?

This Reiki Master believes it is always ok to send Reiki. Read up her reasons and see how it compares to the others' opinions, reasons and also your higher self. www.peacefulpresents.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/permission-free-will-healing-work/

This Reiki Master believes it is always ok to send Reiki. Read up her reasons and see how it compares to the others’ opinions, reasons and also your higher self. http://www.peacefulpresents.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/permission-free-will-healing-work/

I teach in my Reiki I classes that in order to do Reiki on others, you must have their permission first.  Yes, this is how I was taught by my teacher, and this is what I hear from many other Reiki teachers as well.  But I’m a bit of a rebel and believe in questioning what I read, learn and hear.  However, I’m also very careful and respectful of people’s boundaries and free will.  So, I’ve been contemplating this particular question for years until I’ve come to a conclusion that feels right to me.  It’s up to you to find what feels right for you.  I pray this blog will help you with that looking at some different points of view.  I have also included at the end of this blog, links to other blogs on this same topic with other points of view.  If this is an important topic to you and you want more information to help you formulate what feels right for you, then please read more.  But, then, sit with your higher self and formulate what truly feels right for you.  That is always what counts most.

Yes, I ask permission and only do Reiki when I have permission.  But, read on, because it’s just not that simple.

Even though at the professional level of Healing Intuitive that I am, I am able to talk to people’s higher selves and get permission that way, I still rarely do this.  I truly feel this is for the most extreme situations only, such as: coma, someone trapped in a mine or somewhere we cannot communicate with them or other severely extreme situations like those.  Only then do I sit in trance and talk to their higher self to get a yes or a no.  Then I also say a special prayer before hand such as: “I am sending this Reiki with love.  This person may take as much, as little or none, it is up to them.  I respect their soul’s wishes completely and I fully and completely let go of the outcome.”  I rarely find a need to do it and I much prefer verbal buy in.

I also always get verbal permission from children, animals and most especially family members. This is a picture of my son receiving Reiki. We are most likely to have deep emotional connections when working on family members which are much harder to release effectively and therefore permission is of utmost importance. I fully respect my family's ability to work through their own issues and to sometimes say NO to me doing Reiki on them. It's all good and ok in the big picture.

Photo the rights of Josslyn Streett and Rain Shadow Reiki, please tag my blog if you must use my photo.

 Here is my reasoning and then you can contemplate this question for yourself.

My main reason is for respecting each individual person’s free will and also to make sure you as the channel for the Reiki, are not putting your own intentions on anyone else’s’ healing path.  This is a very important step.  If we feel like we want to do Reiki on someone without their permission it is good to step back and ask yourself,  ‘why?’  Be honest.  No one else is in on this discussion except you and your Reiki guides.  If the answer is that you simply feel for what they are going through, then you may pray for them or send Reiki Blessings without permission. (Reiki has multiple symbols to send Reiki Blessings, The Power Symbol is one of them.)  If the answer is more like, “They aren’t doing the steps to grief.” or “They aren’t changing and it’s hurting our relationship.” Then you might need to step back, take a good look in the mirror and do Reiki on YOURSELF.  Most issues in YOUR life are YOUR issues.  Reiki YOU first and foremost.

As healing facilitators, we are trusted with a very big responsibility.  In my opinion, it is not to be taken lightly.  But, it is also not to be controlled or boxed in by other people’s beliefs, because we all must make our own mistakes and successes – that free will thing again.  As a ‘healer’ we are in people’s energy fields, messing around with higher bigger stuff then we truly understand, I don’t believe any human brain can fully comprehend all levels of healing that are taking place all at the same time when we do a Reiki session.  If we are doing this without permission, we are invading people’s boundaries, inflicting on their free will and therefore creating karma for ourselves to balance out again later.  Maybe soon later, maybe much later.  But, creating karma is not what we want to be doing as healers.  This creates unbalanced karma for you mostly but can also alter their healing path and neither one is what we want.  As healer we want to help, not make the process longer and more drawn out by creating karma.

Ok, That Said, WHEN CAN YOU REIKI SOMEONE ELSE WITHOUT PERMISSION?

Don’t.  Just don’t do it.

But, You Can Do These:

  • Reiki the relationship

    This is my energy healing space and I clear it with Reiki regularly. I set intentions for grounded, clean and clear, safe and sacred space each time, plus I add intentions for each individual client or event. I have had clients tell me that being in the Reiki in this space is the only time they have ever felt safe. THAT is a HUGE compliment to the extra work I do to keep the space sacred. It's worth it and it works.

    This is the Rain Shadow Reiki energy healing space and I clear it with Reiki regularly. I set intentions for grounded, clean and clear, safe and sacred space each time, plus I add intentions for each individual client or event. I have had a client who suffered from extreme childhood and adult abuse, tell me that being in the Reiki in this space is the only time they have ever felt safe. THAT is a HUGE compliment to the extra work I do to keep the space sacred. It’s worth it and it works.

  • Reiki the situation
  • Reiki the space, the physical space meaning a room or the space in between you and the person you are having an issue with.  Your own universe space.
  • Send Reiki Blessings with any of the blessing symbols, the power symbol (The Power Symbol Reiki II), the Master Symbols (UDKM, TDKM, Reiki III & Master/Teacher)
  • Pray for them

**None of these will inflict upon anyone’s free will and create positive karma for both parties.  A Reiki win/win situation.

By doing these, it also helps us heal our own karma towards the situation AND help us feel like we are doing something.  Many of us need to feel we are helping, this is a way to help but without actually interfering.

Example

Let’s say you are a teacher.  You want to Reiki your students but know that you can’t because you’d need their permission and if they are children, their parents permission too.  Too much complication.  How can you work with Reiki, stay in your place of authenticity and make the classroom better without doing Reiki on individual people?  Easy, Reiki the space.  You can do this in person or long distance from your home if you have Reiki II symbols.

Clean and Clear Space

Learn to find that safe and sacred space within yourself and you may not any longer feel the need to 'save' others.  You will more easily be able to disconnect that need and allow the Reiki to flow.  Trust and Faith both come easily from this space.

Learn to find that safe and sacred space within yourself and you may not any longer feel the need to ‘save’ others. You will more easily be able to disconnect that need and allow the Reiki to flow. Trust and Faith both come easily from this space.

By cleansing the space with Reiki with a positive intention such as; clean and clear, safe and sacred (one of my favorites) the energy in the room will be fresh, calm, feeling safe & clean of all ‘old’ energies; old arguments that happened the day, week or years before.  Reiki will help the space to feel clean of anxieties from test taking or sitting too long.  With all these old energies transmuted to the Light with Reiki, the room and the people in it will FEEL AND BE CALMER!  Without them even knowing that anything is different.  They will feel it, you will feel it.  Reiki the room again any time you feel it needs it or do it every Sunday night before you go to work.  I like to go with the flow and listen to my intuition but sometimes it works best for me to be on a schedule.  Do what feels right for you.

Another Reiki Win/Win Situation

Also, another win/win, if some of the souls in the room choose to take the Reiki that is ‘hanging out’ they may take it.  This is not involving you, you are just offering the Reiki in the room and each individual person may choose on their own, to take it or not.  No boundaries have been invaded, no karma created.  So, they may get a healing anyway, but it is between them and their Higher Power, not you.  You as the Reiki channel are just the channel.  Reiki does the real work.

This can be done in ANY environment safely and ethically.

But, this also involves you as the channel to let go of ego.  To release any outcome you might have to the Reiki being in the room.  You have to work at not being connected to whether someone takes the Reiki or not.   This is challenging for most people depending upon the situation and takes doing MORE REIKI ON YOURSELF.  The prescription is usually, Reiki yourself more.

Example: Maybe the little boy’s (his higher self chooses) who is giving you the most troubles with his behavior chooses not to take the Reiki that has been offered in the classroom because his behavior is linked to a bigger life lesson he and maybe even you are supposed to learn.  We don’t know these spiritual ins and outs, but we must have faith that behind the scenes, Reiki really is doing all it can to help and support us in a way that will not change our life plan.  It’s pretty important stuff if you think about it.

Safe and Sacred

Safe and sacred intention helps people in the room feel safe and protected, again without knowing why.  This works great for children’s class rooms, group therapy meetings, doctor’s offices, psychic reading rooms, work spaces with a lot of people and of course Reiki rooms – any place where people may have some stress or anxiety about being there.  ANY SPACE ACTUALLY.  By the space feeling safe, the people in the space will be more grounded, more focused and more able to let go of old issues if this is needed.  And they can do so in a calm and loving environment.

REMEMBER, Reiki is Divine Healing Energy.  Therefore, it is intelligent and knows exactly what is needed at any given time, for any person in the space, even for you.  As humans, we need to get out of the way and allow Reiki to do its thing.

I like to start my beginning Reiki prayer with – FOR THE GREATEST GOOD FOR ALL INVOLVED, PLEASE SEND DOWN MY REIKI….

and I know in my heart that what is for the greatest good for all of us, will happen.

I’d LOVE to hear your views on this topic or how this blog helped you in some way.  All loving comments written with respect are appreciated.

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND REIKI BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL,

Josslyn

There are many blogs out there to read on this topic.  These three will get you started and are truly worth the time to read them. Otherwise I wouldn’t put them here on my own blog.  Blessings…

**A blog by Reiki & Shamanic Practitioner, Jonathan Weekes who tells some true and truly beautiful stories about how we heal THROUGH our illness and difficulties to be the beautiful butterflies that we are today.  Worth the read.  Click on his name for the link.

**Another blog on this topic by James Deacon with quite an extreme story about free will.  Worth reading. Thank you James for your dedication to Reiki with ethics.

**A blog by Frans and Bronwen Stiene from the International House of Reiki with what seems like a very different perspective.  But, read all the way to the end, Frans and Bronwen and giving each of their students a great deal of credit for being able to detach from the situation and I respect them for that.  However, their advice at the very end is…well… you’ll have to read for yourself.  Click on their names for the link.

My Husband’s Reiki Miracle

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

At our Reiki events and during private sessions it seems that many people are afraid to bring up the topic of miracles but want to.  They want to know how long it will take them to heal.  They want some concrete time frame as to how long this ‘Reiki stuff” will take to heal them especially if they have physical illness.  Many people simply want a healing miracle.  I totally understand.  If there was a magic pill, believe me,  I’D TAKE IT FIRST!!  I live and deal with five chronic ‘invisible’ illnesses every day – you can bet, I’d be first in line getting that pill.

Bubble Bursting – Warning

I hate to burst your bubble, but sometimes a dose of reality is what we need. Sometimes believing in a magic pill keeps us in denial longer than good and real information that can help us move on.   Ok, here is the bubble bursting but you have to read the whole thing to truly understand.  If you don’t want to do that, then bail out now and stay in blissful denial.  If you’d like to know more, it’s a good story, read on.

Reiki Works In Mysterious Ways

Here is a photo of us about six months before his rib went out.

Here is a photo of us about six months before his rib went out.

Reiki will never go against our free will.  Which means, if our soul has chosen illness as a spiritual tool for growth, then we must learn what we have come here to learn from this tool, BEFORE we can be healed.  The earth plane is unique from other healing/learning planes of existence because it is the most dense.  Therefore, there are lessons we can only learn while we are here; lessons such as addiction and physical illness.  We can learn them in other planes of existence as well, but not to the same dense level that we can while in physical form here.  Therefore, these lessons are critical to our soul’s development and we comprehend that at a soul level. But, we don’t remember it at a human level. That is the importance, but the reality is, there are no short cuts to learning these lessons.  It takes years, lifetimes to learn many of these lessons we have signed up for, which means that the Reiki will help us, guide us and even heal us if that is what is for our highest good, but it will not ‘cure’ us, unless that is what our soul signed up for.

Lesson of Patience

Reiki will also not heal us any faster than our subconscious mind is ready for.  If it did, our belief systems would send up a HIGH ALERT and sabotage the process we were making anyway.  Reiki heals us at the exact pace our unique personality is ready to heal at, no faster and no slower.  JUST RIGHT.  This may not be as fast as your CONSCIOUS MIND wants to go, believe me, I totally understand this one first hand.  But, this spiritual and healing work cannot be rushed.  Sometimes the true beauty is in the process, the journey, the full experiences along the way.  Sometimes we can’t see the true beauty until we are through it, but it’s even more impressive on that side.

Sometimes Miracles Happen

And then sometimes, miracles happen.  Sometimes miracles are supposed to happen to help us along our path, to help us with our faith when we need it.  I believe we also sign up for these miracles before we come here knowing we may need some extra support, some extra push in the right direction.  My husband experienced such a healing miracle that helped him to believe in Reiki and me, many years ago when I was a new Reiki healer.

My Husband’s Reiki MiracleKeepCalmBelieveInMiracles

My husband Robert is very open-minded, he has to be, to be married to me for over 18 years.  But, he’s also a thinker, a cynic and a natural-born inquisitor of new things.  When I started taking Reiki classes he was first in line for me to practice on him but didn’t like to ask me too often because I was busy with kids, Mommy/kid activities, household stuff and also practicing healings as much as possible in my ‘free’ time in between.  He didn’t want to put more on me.  I respectfully wait until he asks me to practice Reiki on him, still do.  So it was a few months before he asked.

At this time in our lives, Robert would get a rib out regularly.  If you’ve ever had a rib out, you know, it hurts pretty horribly and would put my strong and independent husband ‘on his knees’ so to speak.  He searched high and low for a Chiropractor who could help him.  We finally found one who could put him back in place and it would last 5 to 6 weeks.  This was the best he’d found so far and he was thrilled.  So, every 5 to 6 weeks he would journey up to the highlands about forty minutes away to have his body adjusted and then the rib would not go out.  This worked well.  Until it didn’t.

Enter – Student Healer Wife

Robert and I on the beach in CA before we moved to Sequim, WA.  He’s always been my biggest & most faithful supporter.

After I’d taken my Reiki II class and had been practicing for a few months Robert’s ribs went out again.  Unfortunately or fortunately for him, our Chiropractor was out-of-town.  He was in such pain and feeling there was little hope for relief, he asked me if I would do a Reiki healing on him.  I don’t know if he believed it would do anything, but when we have no other options, we often open up to new things we never would consider otherwise.  Thank God for that.  I didn’t even have a table back then so he laid on the end of the bed after the kids had gone to sleep and I did two hours of Reiki.  Afterwards, I rolled him over and he fell asleep.

He woke up the next morning and not only were his ribs back in place, but there was no pain.  Not only that, but his ribs didn’t go out again for almost EIGHT YEARS!!  Eight years later, they went out again, I practiced Reiki on him again, put him to bed and now it’s been another two years.  His body was helping him work on this issue again but in a lesser way.

Why Did Robert Get a Miracle?

I have contemplated this healing miracle my husband experienced and ‘discussed’ it with my guides over time.  I believe Robert got a healing miracle because he needed it, because he signed up for it before he came here in order to fully believe in Reiki and me.  Yes, it’s all about me, it’s my blog.  LOL.  I’m sure he has his own healing reasons as well, but combined with the fact that in order for me to have my business, which is run quite a bit out of our home and often interrupts family time and takes a great deal of dedication from our whole family – I believe he needed to, mind, body and soul,  believe in what I do to help other people.  Otherwise, he may not have been nearly as committed to my Reiki practice as he’s been, which is a great deal.

A Miracle is a Miracle

I don’t believe we always have to have a reason for a miracle, I believe we can’t possibly know how that all works.  I like to believe that sometimes our Divine Source likes to surprise us and keep us on our toes with a nice surprise.  And, I don’t believe we are truly meant to know how it all works.  This is the faith part.

But, in some cases, like ours, I believe there was a reason and it worked wholeheartedly.

I see what I call ‘mini miracles’ in my life daily.  To me, every time I feel the Reiki in my hands or receive intuitive information that connects to a client in an important way, that feels like a miracle to me – every time.  It helps me have faith, hope and spiritual power by knowing each and every day that I am watched over, guided and protected by Divine Love.  It keeps me going every day through the hard stuff and it gives me hope for our future on this planet that we can turn things around and save not only our planet but each other as well.  These are all miracles, big or little.  A miracle is a miracle no matter what you call it.  If you just believe.  If it gives you faith.

My family at about the time when I learned Reiki for the first time. My family has supported me in so many ways for me to be able to practice Reiki at home, at odd hours and on many weekends when we could have otherwise been together. They fully believe in me and what I do. So grateful for them.

I pray our little story helps you to understand a bit more about how Reiki heals, that miracles really do happen in our lives in big and little ways and we just need to be aware, be in the flow and be grateful.  And, that patience is sometimes one of the biggest lessons we can learn, I know it is for me – because I still don’t have that magic pill.

REIKI ON!!

Many Reiki Blessings to you all, may you receive the miracle you requested this year!!

Blessings to All at this Time of Celebration

BLESSINGS TO ALL AT THIS TIME OF CELEBRATION

If we are alive, with food and a roof over our head, we have much to celebrate!!!

This is the perfect time to say THANK YOU to everyone who has been a part of my life this year through Reiki.  I’m so grateful to have so many amazing spiritual people in my life.  I’m grateful to be doing what I love with people I truly enjoy being around each and every day.  Divine just keeps bringing me more and more wonderful people to be my students, clients, friends, fellow light-workers and bloggers.

So thank you all very much for taking Reiki classes, as well as trusting me for your private sessions, readings and blogs -learning more about how to live a spiritual life with Reiki.  You help me feel and remember that I’m the one who is learning and gaining so much from our time together.  I feel incredibly blessed.

It’s been a difficult year for many, my family included.  My husband got laid off a year ago at this time, we started a second business on our own with a lot of new information to learn and very little $$ coming in for most of the year, and in June my dad was diagnosed with cancer and very quickly passed away the end of September.  It’s been a whole lot of BIG changes fast.

But, I have found, through this path with Reiki and my family by my side, that we truly find out what we are made of through the most difficult situations and I’m grateful for how much I have grown and shared this year.

Divine wants us to find joy in between the difficulties no matter what they are.

That is what life is, challenges to learn and grow from along with sharing love and joy with family and friends.  Finding who we truly are as a powerful spiritual being is hopefully the outcome.

I’m grateful so many of you have shared joy, fun and healing energy with me and my family this year through all the incredible Reiki events you have participated with.  They and you truly keep me moving forward when sometimes I don’t feel like I can.  You all lift me up when I need it most and help me to ‘keep on keeping on’ with Reiki and love in my heart.

Some end of the year business-

I am taking some time off for the holidays starting this Saturday, December 19th and will be available by phone and email (only for emergency sessions over the phone) until January 10th.  If your session can wait until I am off vacation, please wait.  If you cannot wait, please call my cell phone at 360-460-7829.

Also, my rates will be going up soon, my guides have informed me of this.  So, if you want a class or session at the ‘old’ rates, please book this in the first quarter of the year.

I pray you all have truly beautiful holidays, time with people you love and joy in your heart,

Huge Blessings to you ALL!!

Say Hello to my little friend, 2016

Congratulations to my New Reiki Students!! Anyone Can Learn Reiki!

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

A BIG HUGE CONGRATULATION TO MY THREE NEW REIKI I STUDENTS

LAST CLASS OF THE YEAR 2015!!

and a short blog about how ANYONE can learn and do Reiki!!

This class loved to laugh and I got to laugh right along with them.  We had so much fun, and they didn’t take anything too seriously, EXCEPT, the final practice session.  They did a fabulous job and we went way over time (Ok, a bit over time)  because we were all so into it.  LOVED IT!!

Congratulations Celeste, Glenda and Renee!!

Congratulations Celeste, Glenda and Renee!!

 

 

TMI

Quite often at the end of the two-day class, we’ve learned so much new information that some students feel overwhelmed.  But, I’ve seen this before and every time, the practice session brings everything together.  The practice session just helps it all make sense.  When the Reiki is flowing the healing has begun, whether the student feels they can do it or not, they do, because with the Reiki flowing, the healing takes place no matter what.  It’s incredibly confirming to both student, teacher and the person on the table receiving the Reiki.

Just The Channel

No matter how many times a student feels they need to look at the book to see the hand positions, no matter how much they forget in the moment what they have learned in the past two days, and no matter how much they doubt themselves, the healing still takes place.  The Reiki goes to work in-spite of us to help us through that student learning phase, to help us build confidence in ourselves and in the Reiki and to help us get past the nagging beliefs in our head that we can’t do this.  The Reiki heals us at the same time as the client.  It is a truly beautiful thing.

See, we can be serious too.

See, we can be serious too.

During the practice session, the client feels heat, tingles or energy shooting up and/or down their body.  The student might feel the same thing or something totally different, but they all feel some kind of confirmation that the Reiki IS RUNNING THROUGH THEM AND THEY ARE FACILITATING HEALING.  It’s a spiritually powerful feeling.  It can be humbling being JUST THE CHANNEL but it can also be FREEING.  All we have to do is BE the CHANNEL.  The Reiki simply flows through us, and all we have to do is allow it to.  The Reiki does so much of the hard work for us that truly, anyone can learn this healing technique. That is the beauty of it.  That is the simplicity of it.  And that is what makes it so popular because truly, ANYONE CAN DO THIS!!  That is spiritually empowering to the whole world!!

So, if you have not take a Reiki class before, please know, YOU TOO CAN DO THIS TOO and it’s so worth it.

Huge Blessings to my Reiki students, I’m so excited to watch your paths unfold, 

Go with your Reiki in Love, Light and Lollipops!! (Borrowed that from a dear new Reiki friend to remind us to add joy to our path!)

Dr. Hayashi’s Theory Behind How Reiki Heals

Excerpt from “The Story of Dr. Chujiro Hayashi” by Marianne Streich in The Reiki News Magazine Fall 2009

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, one of our Reiki founders.

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, one of our Reiki founders.  Pronounced Chew-Gee-Row Hi-ah-shee

Dr. Hayashi addresses many of the most common questions I get in this one simple analogy.  How Does Reiki Heal? Why does Reiki not always heal fast or present miracles?  Why do healing crisis’ happen with Reiki?

“Hayashi told his students, ‘Reiki cures problems from the bottom up.’   Hayashi talked about diseases of the day and discussed the body’s natural healing process and how Reiki activates it.  He used the metaphor of a muddy stream, telling students that Reiki stirs up stagnant energy, just as sediment will surface when a stream is disturbed.  As surface sediment is removed, the stream will appear to be clearer, although some sediment will sink to the bottom again.  Continuing the process of bringing sediment to the surface and removing it will ultimately result in a clear stream.  Just as a disturbed stream will appear muddy, disturbing stagnant energy can result in a healing reaction or in symptoms temporarily getting worse, but as the stagnant energy continues to be removed, the body becomes clear, just as the stream becomes clear if the muddy sediment is removed.  He described healing as the process of making the finest paper, in which each sheet is peeled off until the healthy being is revealed.”
