My goal is to encourage and help others to incorporate Reiki into their daily lives seamlessly and with great joy. I have done this for myself over many years of working with Reiki and I find talking with my clients and students that not everyone does this easily.
In the beginning, when we first take a Reiki class, we are often so overloaded with the information, the how to’s, that we stay inside our initial Reiki thinking box. We limit ourselves to the basics because we have to in order to just do the basics. It’s all good! That’s how we start. Some of us ‘get it’ faster than others and some of us take more time thoroughly comprehending what the Reiki can really do and how to do it. All in Divine time. But, we can also learn from others if we seek out ways to expand our Reiki boxes, when we are ready. It is my hope, for the Highest Good of All, that my little blogs help some of you to expand your Reiki box of what is possible to do with Reiki. Because I know first hand the daily miracles that come from having Reiki working with you to create the life you want. Here is one example.
Reiki & a Movie
I have a very wonderful and close dear friend here in Sequim whose entire family is karmically connected to my family. We are all close and our kids fight like siblings or cousins I say, but that’s another story and another life. Gigi and I have over the years become very close and share a love of our families, healthy eating, our pets and of course, our spirituality and Reiki. Because of hectic family/work schedules, we usually schedule our dates ahead of time. Now and then Gigi and I schedule a lunch, walking date or a movie morning while the kids are in school. Much needed girl time.
I have worked with Reiki on her whole family and every time I visit I work on her two fury buddies, Jax and Cedric. All animals are different and some don’t like hands on Reiki. But Jax and Cedric LOVE hands on Reiki. They are Rat terriers and because of them I have fallen in love with the breed. They are such sweeties and simply LOVE ME and MY REIKI! As soon as I’m in the house they are ON me like flies on honey. They sometimes take turns and sometimes can’t wait and I have one hand on each of them while they sit in my lap.
When I come over for a movie date, my two buddies are right on top of me, cuddling and soaking up the Reiki for a full two hours. When I mentioned this to a new client she was amazed. “What? You can run the Reiki while you watch a movie?” She hadn’t thought of that before. Yep, sometimes in this busy life, we multi task. If the choice is no Reiki or Reiki while watching the move, I’m sure Jax and Cedric would choose Reiki and a Movie every single time.
- I simply get my Reiki flowing as soon as I walk in the door or even before while I’m in the car.
- However you start your Reiki, I like to say my intentional prayer, ask Divine to send in my Reiki Guides of Love and Light, then let it flow.
- I hold the intention that Jax and Cedric get exactly what they choose and what they need and that the Reiki will continue to flow through the whole movie.
They come and go, jumping off of me and running to the kitchen or the front door to bark, but they always come back for more cuddles and more Reiki. Meanwhile, I watch my movie, converse with Gigi as necessary and not necessary for a girls day off and get some doggy snuggle at the same time. I love when it’s a Win/win, don’t you.
Oh yeah, you can cuddle with your kids or sweetheart and run Reiki AND watch a movie all at the same time too!
Have Fun and Reiki On!!
