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

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.

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!!

Reiki at the End of Life – Honoring My Dad

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

It is my goal with this blog, to give you ideas of ways to work with your Reiki, that maybe you haven’t thought of.  I pray this blog helps anyone who will go through the grieving process.  Blessings to you all…

Where to begin…

My father was diagnosed with Leukemia this past June.  It is now late September.  The doctors said one to five years and we thought THAT was too fast.  Three months later, with our heads still spinning, my dad passed a few days ago.

At this exact moment, I write as a way of getting all the words out of my head so I can stay calm, to honor him and to honor Reiki and all it does for me and my family.

Sitting here at this moment, all the work I have done with Reiki, being able to work with Reiki on my father in his last day of life has been the most important and fulfilling Reiki moment of my life.

The Call

Reiki was with us from the moment I spoke with my mom and she being a woman who would never ever ‘cry wolf’ said “If you want to say good-bye to your father, you’d better all come.

My husband checked the flights and shouted through the house to the family, “You have twenty minutes to pack.  We were off, kids, adults, dog, we were packed and leaving the house in a half an hour to catch a flight that we might not be able to make.  I prayed and made phone calls during the two-hour fifteen minutes to the airport. I brought my Reiki with me to help us be calm and not drive too fast but to get us there in time, to help me be strong in the moments I need to be and to help me be able to process and let go at the moments I need to do that.

Our Reiki Guides were with us on the drive to the Airport making sure we didn’t get pulled over, caught in traffic or anything worse.  I asked my Reiki guides to clear traffic on the freeway so we could get there safely.  Our guides provided us with a very nice semi truck driver who went a very good consistently fast speed but not too fast, so we were able to get there in time with a divine escort in front of us.  Reiki Blessings to the truck drivers out there.

When we got on the plane for our two and a half hour flight I prayed most of the way, instructing Reiki how I wanted things to go, manifesting what I felt I needed and wanted most for the situation: to be able to see my dad and him see us, to be able to say “I love you, no matter what happened with us in the past, I love you,” and for him to know we were there for my mom and would take care of her, she would not go through this alone.  These were the things that mattered to me. They were HUGE undertakings at this moment.  We didn’t know if we’d get there in time.  Just that morning my dad was with my mom at the dog park, talking with people, socializing with the other dog parents, planning a trip to Sacramento to see an alternative healer who might have a cure… and tonight, he was……… knocking at Heaven’s door.

Divine has granted us with so many healing gifts these last few months.  A huge one is that we made it.  And, I truly felt we were able to make a difference at his hospital bedside.  My dad was coherent when we arrived.  He saw all of us.  He knew we were there for him.  I told him I love him.  I looked in his eyes and let him know I love him.  He saw my husband and his grandsons there for him, his legacy.  We had closure  in that arena and I am eternally grateful for that.  I felt lifetimes of healing happening right there, in that moment.

But then the even bigger gift happened.

Reiki Steps Up to the Plate (my dad was a huge baseball fan, had to throw that in there)

When we arrived, my dad seemed very agitated.  He had a very large tube in his nose for oxygen and he had difficulty breathing and talking with it.  We could make out a few words here and there but it seemed so difficult for him to talk and get the words out we didn’t want him to strain.  We didn’t feel we needed words at that moment, but he did.  He seemed to want to say so much to us that he wasn’t able to say.  I understood but at the same time didn’t want him to be in such pain and frustration.

My boys doing Reiki on my dad in the hospital from across the room. Four hours of Reiki can be a lot.  Make sure you are grounded, connected to Divine and of the mindset that the Reiki is channeling through you, not using your personal energy.  This way, you will not tire the body.  In this picture they are holding up their hands towards my dad, you can also just place your hands face up on your lap and intend that the energy is getting to the person who has requested it.  This will be less tiring for your physical body for long sessions like this.

His frustration at the tube, lack of ability to communicate and the end of his life too soon, it all was compounding his agitation and he was getting more and more upset.  I instinctively put my hand on his heart and one on his crown and prayed for my Reiki to ease his discomfort.  My family, my husband and my two boys, took my cue and all started running Reiki on my dad from where they were around the bed (my husband is a Reiki III and my teen boys are both Reiki I trained).  My father instantly, I mean instantly, calmed.  He closed his eyes and stopped trying so hard to communicate.  We took turns doing Reiki on him two at a time for the next four hours, keeping him calm, talking to him in the energy of love and spirit through the Reiki.

Communicating Through the Reiki

By communicating that my thoughts, words and intentions were getting to my dad at a higher level of consciousness by riding on the waves of the Reiki that was flowing to him, I let him know in so many ways that I love him, no matter what has challenged us in the past (a great deal, but it doesn’t matter any more).  I let him know I’d be able to communicate with him after he passed.  (My deceased father in law is at our house all the time, what’s one more paternal energy hanging around, right!)  I prayed for my Reiki Guides and his highest and most Loving Guides of God’s to be with my dad as well as any loved ones he would recognize from the other side and for him to go with them at the right time, including his many black labs that he has loved so much.  I assured him he’d see us all again soon.  I assured him that mom would be in Heaven with him too some day soon.  (Heaven time is not the same as here, we will all be there in a blink of an eye).  Since my father did not have a very strong spiritual connection, I felt that reassuring him we’d all be together again in love, was a very important part of him being ok with passing on.  Reiki delivered the messages to him.

Of This I know in my Heart, spiritually…

  • The Reiki helped him to know that there is a Heaven and he will be there.
  • The Reiki let him know that we will all be together very soon.
  • The Reiki let him know we all loved him dearly and he made a difference in this life in many ways.
  • The Reiki let him know there is so much more mystery to life then he knew consciously in this life and that he has more adventures to come.
  • The Reiki let him know it was okay for us if he passed so he wouldn’t be in pain any longer.
  • The Reiki spoke for us, because the Reiki is of God and us and him too.

Reiki Also…

  • Calmed my dad physically and emotionally
  • Calmed me, my mom and my whole family
  • Gave peace to all of us that we were able to do something to help in a situation that seemed uncontrollable
  • Brought my whole extended family closer together in a feeling of unity that we had not had for many years

Reiki Planted Seeds

  • My dad’s amazing doctor was aware of energy work and we had good talks about how it helps
  • The nurses saw us doing Reiki and witnessed how it helped calm my dad
  • My sister who knows very little about Reiki has now seen it work
  • And, spirit is motivating me to write about this so soon after, to share my experience with those of you who need to read about it

Reiki Continues to support us by

  • I do Reiki on myself multiple times a day to stay grounded, strong, and centered
  • Reiki on myself to heal and release the bigger, deeper issues at the perfect time
  • Reiki on myself to help me have the best calming, healing words for whoever needs them at the time, including myself
  • I’m doing Reiki on my niece who has never even heard of Reiki, because she has a sinus infection
  • I’m doing Reiki on any other family members who want it and need it, we all need it, but I’m respectful of each person’s process which may not want Reiki at that moment
  • Reiki on my dad’s dog, Sparty, who misses him terribly and is clinging to my mom
  • On Saturday, I will do Reiki at the location of the Celebration of Life to set space for a positive remembrance of my dad’s life

The ways in which Reiki can support me and my family at this moment is a very long one.

We have a long way to go in the grieving process, it’s been four days.  This week we are supporting my mom and preparing a celebration of life.  Next week, who knows.  One day at a time, but THANK GOD, seriously, that I have Reiki and I know I can turn to this amazing gift from Divine to support me and my family along the way.

I’m so grateful right now, so full of love and light and so confident that with God as my partner through my use of Reiki, I’ll make it through this process with deep healing and more joy in my heart.

Please feel free to share stories of your parents, grieving, Reiki or anything else that is healing to you or others who will be reading.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Reiki For Cancer – Testimonials

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

Lately I have been hearing way too many diagnosis’ of cancer, more than usual it seems.  About three new ones per week from friends, family, students and clients.  In my own immediate family, as well, my own father has been diagnosed with Leukemia just this past June.

Positive reinforcement word Believe in Miracles engrained in a rock

It is a challenging time for many people.  I Thank God every day that I have Reiki to support me and to offer to others.  But, I also have had enough ‘proof’ in my life and my client’s lives that Reiki helps in so many ways, that I understand and believe in the powerful healing that can take place when working with Reiki regularly and diligently.  But, even with my strong faith, really difficult times challenge me like anyone else and reading testimonials like these, from people who have been cured, really help us to keep hope alive.
GoodThingsCometothosewhoBelieve

Reiki Practitioners are not allowed to claim anything healing with Reiki, other than stress relief.  However, I can talk about my personal experience.  And, what I do know from my personal experience, working with my clients who have had cancer, is that Reiki helps in so many ways and it’s different for every person and situation.  I have seen Reiki give people exactly what they need most in each situation:

  • For some of my clients it has helped them get a much-needed nights sleep.
  • For some the Reiki helps them feel calmer and more hopeful.
  • For others it helps them get intuitive ideas about their treatments or doctors to choose.
  • Some clients recover from their surgeries faster and with less prescription pain medication.
  • For many it has helped them have less side effects from the chemo.
  • And for others, it helps them to forgive and forget, heal their ‘God’ issues and transition to Heaven with more peace in their hearts.
  • And for some, yes, they beat it and live cancer free for a long happy life.

These are just what I have personally experienced as a Reiki practitioner working with my clients fighting cancer over the past ten years of practicing.

KeepCalmBelieveInMiraclesOceanReading other people’s success stories, I have found, helps me to have an uplifted spirit, enough to have hope and hope can aid us in forging forward even through the most difficult times.  So, in that spirit, I share two success stories from people who were actually spontaneously cured with the help of Reiki and some Reiki practitioners who were there to accept the call.

I post these stories in honor of my father who is on my mind and in my heart every single day.

I’m here to facilitate your healing if you need some support in that,  I do understand life’s daily challenges first hand and how to find joy in the healing process.  If you need a Reiki practitioner to work with, locally or long distance, I’m happy to be considered to aid in your healing or spiritual path.

Blessings to you all, Josslyn, Reiki Master/Teacher

These Two Stories have been Copied from The Reiki News Magazine Winter 2014 p. 69

These stories were documented by before and after medical tests and the observations of licensed health care providers.  Please note that while Reiki can cause miraculous healing, it does not always do so.  However most patients receive some level of healing with the minimum benefit being relaxation and stress reduction.  If you have a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that you use Reiki in conjunction with the help of a licensed health care provider.

Reiki and Prostate Cancer

With the thought of promoting Reiki, I called an assisted living center to offer an Introduction to Reiki class with free mini-Reiki sessions.  When I asked the social director if he was familiar with Reiki, he said, “Let me tell you my story,” and proceeded to tell me that he had been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer.  His massage therapist, a Reiki Level II practitioner, had been told by a psychic that he (the social director) needed to receive three treatments in close succession by three Reiki healers.

Based on his story, I quickly set things in motion and our team gave him Reiki on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  No other treatment was given.  Prior to his Reiki treatment, his Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test results showed a level of 4.0 and his doctor diagnosed that he had a prostate cancer.  The Monday after we completed the three treatments he was again tested.  On the following Wednesday he called to say the test results showed 0.3 and that he was free of cancer.  He remarked that in all of his life the test results had never been that low.  I am so honored to have been a part of his healing.  I feel honored to be called by Reiki, a major part of my life.  –Phran Gacher, Stamford, Connecticut

Reiki and Uterine Cancer

Six years ago while a Level II Reiki healer I witnessed an extraordinary healing of a woman diagnosed with cancer.  My Reiki Master (Colleen Chauntler of Gladstone, Australia) was staying with me at the time.  A woman was brought to my home presenting a distended lower abdomen, and we were told by her friends that she has been sick for some months.  In the week prior to this visit she had a scan and had been told by doctors that she had a large tumor in her uterus that was probably cancerous.  Surgery was planned for the following week.  We decided to give her three sessions of Reiki healing throughout the week, hoping that would encourage rapid healing for her after her surgery.  Rather than the usual hand positions, the three of us who worked on her decided to focus on only three areas — my Reiki Master held her hands on the patient’s lower abdomen, I had my hands on her head (crown) and another Level II healer (Sharon Honatana) was at her feet.  We stayed like that for approximately an hour each session.

On the day she was to check in to the hospital I saw an area of large, black energy in the shape of a ball and surrounded by what appeared to be sparking energy lift from her abdomen and rise up into the air.  It kept rising and then disappeared through the ceiling of the room.  I asked if anyone else had seen it and each of the others confirmed the same thing, including the patient.  She duly went on to check into the hospital, and when examined her they could not feel the tumor; they sent her for a scan and it had gone.  She told us with great humor that the doctors were arguing and quite flustered at the result.  They eventually went on to do an exploratory operation but no tumor could be found.  She had therapy for the few cancer cells that they did fine and is fit and healthy now.  The woman believes she was healed by Satya Sai Baba and Reiki.  On the night before her last session she said she dreamed she was in her car and it was teetering on the edge of a cliff.  Below her was blackness; in her rearview mirror she could see a long road, and walking along this road was Sai Baba.  he came toward her car and stood looking at her.  She cried out to him to help her and he reached down and pulled her car off the edge of the cliff and placed it back on the road. –Penelope (Penny) Hayward

Reiki Stories – Reiki and Epstein-Barr/Fibromyalgia

Reprinted from the Reiki News Magazine Winter 2014 issue

If you have taken a Reiki class or thinking about it and are not yet familiar with the Reiki News Magazine, I am here to say, this is a wonderful resource not to be missed out on.  I have stacks and stacks of these magazines that I keep through the years and reread. Plus I have them available for check out in the Rain Shadow Reiki lending library.

Here is a story of physical healing and determination to not give up on both the part of the Reiki Master and the client.  This, I believe is a great story to show that with Reiki, time, determination and patience, Reiki can heal us on all levels.  Reiki healing happens at the right time for each individual person.  We are not all meant to have instant miracles, but I believe with continued effort, we can get our miracles in different ways and times.  I pray it gives you some ideas about what is possible with Reiki.

Blessings, Josslyn

Reiki and Epstein-Barr/Fibromyalgia

I have suffered from the Epstein-Barr virus and Fibromyalgia pain since I was 19 years old.  I will be 39 in May.  I have seen so many doctors and have had so many tests and scans.  I’ve been on so many medications over the past 20 years — until recently I was taking 90 mg of morphine three times a day.  Upon waking, I walked like I had polio.  It hurt to sit, to stand, to walk.  I would not shake hands with anyone because of my hand pain.  My joint pain was the worst; every joint hurt all the time.  I would wince just to bend my arm.  I felt like this even while taking the morphine.  I also had three vertebrae fused in my back a year ago.  After the surgery the discs above and below the fusion were bulging, causing additional pain.  The morphine helped very little and I prayed to die just to end the pain I endured each day.  

Reiki stopped all of the pain with the help of a wonderful Reiki Master, Susanna Glaze!!!  It took approximately four months.  I had two treatments a week.  Each treatment lasted 1.5 to 2 hours.  She did this and never asked for anything in return.  I did bring her crafts and art to trade for the Reiki treatments, and she always said it was too much.  I now pay her and it will never be enough because my pain is gone and I am off all morphine.  My life has changed so dramatically in the last four months.  My husband is astounded.  My friends can hardly believe this miracle.  They are all grateful and no one is as grateful as I am.  I have healed physically, emotionally and spiritually.  I could not have done this without the love and compassion of my good friend Susanna.  She taught me that the true meaning of Reiki is love, and there is nothing like the healing human touch.  Susanna is now teaching me Reiki and to honor its tradition and history.  I wish more people knew that Reiki really works.  — Danielle Wise, Carlsbad, N.M.

The articles give me inspiration, ideas and motivation by hearing other Reiki stories from other Reiki Practitioners.  The magazine comes quarterly so you don’t get overwhelmed, but you are excited by the time the new one comes.  I highly recommend getting a subscription at any level of Reiki you are at.

Here is a story of physical healing that happened quite over night from the Winter 2014 issue.  Short and sweet, but powerful.  I pray it gives you some ideas about what is possible with Reiki.

Reiki Heals Torn Calf Muscle

My husband tore his calf muscle playing soccer.  The bleeding under the skin was visible immediately, and he couldn’t bear weight on his leg.  The chiropractor told him that he would be on the sidelines for six weeks.  He was devastated.  That night I gave Reiki to his calf muscle by simply cupping the injured calf muscle in my hands.  I held it for about 20 minutes in that one spot.  After 10 – 15 minutes my husband and I started to feel a massaging sensation under the skin.  My husband asked, “What is that?”  I replied that I didn’t know and suggested that we just go with it.  The massaging sensation was like a series of waves flowing back and forth.  I held the position until the movement stopped.  the next day my husband was walking, in no pain and with no limp.  the chiropractor declared him fit to play the following Saturday and was scratching his head as to how my husband could have healed so quickly!  –Alex Midwife

Story #2 lets us know what healing is possible with a Reiki Attunement

Behcet’s Disease Healed with Reiki

I had an incurable and devastating illness called Behcet’s Disease.  My symptoms were painful and life shattering including losing my eyesight.  Always intuitive, I knew there was a reason for my experiencing this ‘whole’ body illness.  I intuitively knew that I would be able to heal myself.  I became an ordained minister through the study of the Teleios Technique with Dr. Jim Cox.  Then I began certification in Reiki.  The night of the Reiki I attunement I had a dream about a white light that surrounded my body and entered through the top of my head (crown chakra).  This white light renewed and restored every cell in my body.  That was November 15, 1996.  I have not had a symptom of Behcet’s since that day.  In fact, I am now 60 but I look younger than I did in 1996.  By the way, Behcet’s Disease is described as “No Hope- No Cure.”  —Billie Watkins, M. Div., Minister

 

 

Reiki and a Movie

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

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 

Jax typically presents his butt first for Reiki.  What a cutie patootie.

Jax typically presents his butt first for Reiki. He likes having his picture taken much more than Cedric, so Jax is our model for today.

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.

Jax prefers hands on Reiki as opposed to me beaming it to him from a distance.

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.

HOW

  1. I simply get my Reiki flowing as soon as I walk in the door or even before while I’m in the car.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!!

In Love and Light,

Hummingbird Reiki – Reiki That ANYONE Has Time For!!

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

IT’S ALL GOOD!

I teach in Reiki I that there is no wrong way to do Reiki.  IT’S ALL GOOD!!  JUST DO IT!!  Are some of my favorite ‘catch’ phrases.  If we make a ‘mistake’ while doing Reiki, we can always learn something from it, and therefore, it was not a mistake.  However, even by NOT doing Reiki we are learning how we feel when we do not do it.HummingbirdBlueFlitting

This doesn’t work as well if the person doesn’t practice Reiki from the start though, because they never get a chance to feel how good it feels while actually doing Reiki practice.

So, it is my focus as a teacher to motivate my students to DO daily Reiki, every day for the first month after their class, both to create the habit, but also so they can FEEL a difference that Reiki makes in their lives.  I have seen this work quite well with many people.  However, everyone is different and there are many different reasons people stop practicing their Reiki.  Each person is an individual, it helps a lot if I can have a one on one session with them to FEEl in them, why they are not being successful with their Reiki practice.  This was the case with my client, Nancy.

HUMMINGBIRD CLIENT

My client, Nancy, has been coming to me for Reiki sessions for over a year for pain in her body and stress relief.  She also became a student of Reiki and has come to some Reiki Circles so she could work on herself in between our sessions. She felt an extreme difference in the beginning when she did Reiki on herself every day and had mini-miracles happening in her life on a weekly basis. Then, she hit her busy season and stopped her daily Reiki practice.  Nancy owns her own business and works very hard at it and loves it.  But, often times, she finds herself working too much at a job that is very physical and hard on her body.  Reiki and meditation help her to support her body while keeping up a challenging schedule.

Even hummingbirds sit and rest now and then.

PRIVATE SESSION

While working on Nancy’s heart chakra I received some information about why consistent Reiki self-healing has been a struggle for her.  My guides told me that Nancy is a very busy and active kind of person, doing a full half hour session feels like too much for her to do.  She likes to be busy, and active and not sit still for long.  She’s a doer.  I admire this, would love to be more this way at times so I can admire her for her great enthusiasm for her work and life.  She loves it and has great passion.  However, she also meditates and enjoys the benefits of Reiki and down time too.  But, when it comes to Reiki, a full half hour or more session on herself just seems too overwhelming for her.  She created a belief in her subconscious mind that Reiki must be done in half hour self-healing sessions. Probably because that is how we do it in Reiki I class.  But, if we remember first and foremost, THERE IS NO WRONG, then we can retrain our belief systems to do Reiki in any way that works for us.  Let me repeat that, WE CAN DO REIKI IN ANY WAY THAT WORKS FOR US!!  This is what I explained to Nancy and she said “Oh yes, I’m a hummingbird.  I flit from flower to flower.  That will work much better.”  I said “Ok, we’ll call your Reiki, hummingbird Reiki for you.  And, maybe others would like to try it this way too.”

HOW TO DO HUMMINGBIRD REIKI

Simple, remember that you can do Reiki in little bits that fit into your life and your schedule.  Instead of doing all the hand positions like in a 30 minute self treatment, just do one or two of the most important areas.  Trust your intuition on where you need it most in that moment and do it.  REMEMBERING to do it and start this habit may be the most difficult part.  Do what you need to do, to keep Reiki in the forefront of your mind while creating this new habit.  A string or rubber band around the wrist is a good reminder and an easy one for at least the first month or until you feel the habit has been engrained within your subconscious.

Make any small moment in time a chance to do self Reiki practice:HummingbirdOrangeFlitting

  • Reiki when you are waiting for the gas to finish pumping
  • Reiki while in the line while waiting to pick up your kids at school
  • Reiki on yourself while posting on Facebook.  Just let it flow.
  • Reiki  to calm your nerves or settle a tension headache before a stressful event
  • Reiki on your sacral or solar plexus while you are using the facilities for a minute or two, or three
  • Reiki while watching T.V. or listening to music
  • Reiki while you meditate or do yoga
  • Reiki on your kids while they are arguing in the other room. (Reiki them through the walls until they stop or calm down.)
  • Reiki yourself while your kids are arguing in the next room.  (LOL  Either one is good for you.)
  • Reiki beamed at yourself from your hands resting on your lap while waiting for a client or prospect to come in. A very subtle way to do Reiki on yourself in public places.
  • Reiki yourself while waiting at your table for your food to be brought out.
  • Reiki on yourself while you have a 15 minute break at work.
  • Reiki while on hold waiting for a customer service rep.  Chances are you’ll need to be very calm by the time they come on the phone.

We have endless amounts of bits of time in between our busy moments where we can do 5 minute or less Reiki on ourselves.  ITS ALL GOOD!!  Even five minutes, built up here and there, can do a lot.

“Any Reiki is better than no Reiki at all!!”  Josslyn Streett, just said that!!

Remember, if it truly is ALL GOOD and we truly can do NO WRONG, then what you can do with your Reiki ability is endless.  If you have other ideas on how to do some Hummingbird Reiki or have examples of how you HAVE done this, please share with us here in the comments section.  We all learn from each other.

Many Reiki Blessings to Nancy for allowing me to share her story and to all of you for reading, commenting and DOING REIKI!!  Even the smallest actions towards Love and Light are powerful!!

In Love and Light,

Josslyn
