Wounded Healer=Healer

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

Understand your darkness and it will vanish; then you will know what light is.  Understand your nightmare for what it is and it will stop; then you will wake up to reality.  Understand your false beliefs and they will drop; then you will know the taste of happiness.”

Father Anthony De Mello

My star chart calls me a ‘wounded healer.’

Since I read that for the first time, it made sense to me.  It resonated to me, at the time, but it won’t always.

It described the route my soul choose in order to get where I am; abuse, chronic illness, trauma, depression.  Not always fun, not easy, but rarely boring and quite literally, expansive.  It has facilitated me in learning the lessons I needed to learn to be the stronger, more intuitive and more interesting person I am today.

My chart also says that through healing myself, I also help others to facilitate their own healing.  This is a gift for sure.  Heal one, heal many.  That has been the theme of this year for me.

This has been my personal process for my whole life, and, for that, I am grateful.

Sharing what I have learned with others, watching others go through the expanding of their own healing process is renewal of spirit and incredibly rewarding.  And for that too, I am grateful.

Since my father passed away last September I’ve been thrown into a whirl-wind of healing opportunities.

Blogging, unfortunately, has not been a part of it.  I’ve been deep in healing myself, which all healers need to be conscious of and DO consistently more than any healing for others.  The beauty of Reiki is that when you heal yourself or anyone else, everyone benefits.  It’s divine.

When a large change happens, like the death of a parent, we need to take time for ourselves to heal, process and expand.  I’ve been doing just that and I’m getting there.  Patience is a big part of this process.  I’m grateful for yours, and I’m practicing mine a great deal.

I know I’ll have plenty to share when I’m ready, but I’m still not at the point where blogging feels helpful or needed.  I have yet to be motivated by spirit to do it.

So, Thank You For Your Patience, as I don’t yet feel blogging and writing about my path this past year is for my highest good.  Yes.  I’m grateful to those of you have have noticed and spoken to me about it.  That means some of you are reading and noticing.  For that, again, I am grateful.  Thank you for reading, thank you for your patience and hopefully when I come back to it, you’ll be ready to read because it’s been quite a year and I’d like to share what I’ve learned with those who want to hear about it.

When spirit moves me, I’ll be back talking about Reiki and other healing modalities that I am learning through this process.  The wait, I believe, will be worth it.

It has been a year of miracles for me.  I believed in miracles for my clients, for other people, this year I finally believed for myself.  Ask and you shall receive.  I asked for a healing miracle and I received a healing miracle.  I’ll write about it to share with you all soon.  In the meantime, I’m taking what I’ve learned and helping others as much as I possibly can.

ALL HEALING COMES FROM GOD, DIVINE, GREAT SPIRIT, UNIVERSE, whatever you call your Higher Power of Love and Light.  Ask and you shall receive…

Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

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.

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!!

Parking at Rain Shadow Reiki

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

If you live in western Washington and want to come for a Reiki/reading session in person, please call me for an appointment and I’ll give you directions to my location.  However, I often forget to tell people about parking before they come.

My son Sawyer helping out with the day long project of cutting these very overgrown juniper bushes.

Rain Shadow Reiki is in a residential neighborhood so sometimes people are confused as to where to park.  My family and I recently cut back the juniper bushes in front of our building by about four feet so there is much more space to park right in front and not stick out into the road.

Parking for Big Reiki Events

However, for bigger events, it is ok to park in the driveway or in front of any neighbors house that has pavement or rocks for parking.  As long as we park respectfully, don’t trample their plants, leave trash or park in front of mail boxes, they are fine with it.

Look at all this parking!!! We can fit three cars here much more safely now.

Look at all this parking!!! We can fit three cars here much more safely now.  The bushes had grown almost up to the line of the road.

If you have any questions about parking, please feel free to call me at 360-460-7829 or email rainshadowreiki@gmail.com.

Grateful for you all,

Blessings,

Charlie & the I Ching

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

I recently hosted an evening where a spiritual friend of mine who is well-practiced and acquainted with the I Ching (pronounced E Ching) , came over and taught a small spiritual group of people about the I Ching. Charlie Comstock was one of my first spiritual friends here on the peninsula when I moved here six and a half years ago.  He did an I Ching reading for me and I gave him a Reiki session.  I remember getting information from the reading that helped and made sense but I didn’t get the profound awakening to the I Ching until this evening with Charlie and our group a week ago.

We gathered around Charlie and the coffee table to throw our coins and tally our results.

We gathered around Charlie and the coffee table to throw our coins and tally our results.

Maybe this evening was so profound because of the group energy, or the introduction and stories that Charlie told about his life and his path to find the I Ching, or just because the Universe was manifesting the perfect time and opportunity for those who were meant to be touched by it, to be truly touched by it. But, for whatever reason or all the reasons, on this magical night Charlie and the I Ching graced our souls with profound and deep insight into our questions about life. It was a truly beautiful evening where not only I felt touched by the Divine Wisdom but the entire group. (Read each persons praises of the I Ching below)

CHARLIE & THE I CHING

On this evening Charlie told us stories about his past and how his whole life had led him to the I Ching and how important aspects of his childhood, young adult years and beyond had been important in making the I Ching prominent in his life.  He was a fabulous storyteller and we were all completely enthralled with him and his presentation.

After we tallied our results Charlie took turns reading the results for each of us and we all weighed in intuitively what we felt the results were saying.  It was intriguing how often we were all feeling the same thing.

After we tallied our results Charlie took turns reading the results for each of us and we all weighed in intuitively what we felt the results were saying. It was intriguing how often we were all feeling the same thing.

Then he talked about the I Ching and how to pose a question to get a true answer, how to translate the answer and then he guided us through the process to truly amazing results.  It is really an amazingly simple process to receive such important wisdom from the Universe. I believe we were all quite in awe of the accuracy of the answers we got.  Not just because they were answers we expected but because they spoke to us in the depths of our souls with words we couldn’t say but when we read them, they resonated with us, each of us reading for ourselves or each other. We all understood them to be true.

WHAT IS THE I CHING?

The I Ching is an ancient Chinese text of divination also called the Book of Changes, over three thousand years old.

The I Ching uses a type of divination called cleromancy, which produces apparently random numbers (through the Law of Attraction).

This is the I Ching workbook Charlie prefers using.

This is the I Ching workbook Charlie prefers using.

One uses three coins of any kind to ‘throw’, then decipher from an I Ching workbooks which of 64 hexagrams to read. The interpretation of the readings found in the I Ching is a matter of centuries of debate, and many commentators have used the book symbolically, often to provide guidance for moral decision-making. The I Ching wisdom follows the natural rhythm and patterns of our natural world in order to bring us intuitive wisdom about our own natural rhythms and how they relate to our lives.

The I Ching is easy to learn and anyone can ‘play’ with it for answering questions about their daily life, much like divining cards, pendulum, divining games or other divining tools.

POSING AN I CHING QUESTION

After you throw the coins and record the results six times, you use this chart and some help from Charlie to decipher the results and which hexigram you'll be reading.

After you focus on your question, throw the coins and record the results six times from bottom to top, you use this chart and some help from Charlie to decipher the results and which hexigrams you’ll be reading.

Like any divining tool, posing a good question is the key to getting a good answer.  Charlie gave us some tips to come up with questions that were important and significant in our lives, and not frivolous.  It is good to be emotionally involved but not attached to the outcome or we might influence the outcome by our desire.  This can happen if we are not grounded and careful.

He recommends starting the questions with statements that encourage an answer with flow rather than a yes or no answer, such as:

  • What are the benefits of …….?  
  • What are the effects of …………?
  • What are the dynamics of…….?
  • Why is ………….happening to me?  
  • What draws me to …………….?  

More detailed question examples:

  • What are the benefits of me taking this Reiki class in June?
  • What are the effects of me taking a break from work and focusing on my family and myself this summer?
  • What are the dynamics involved in me creating and posting my own website for my spiritual abilities?
  • Why do I have to start a new career at this time in my life?
  • What draws me to the South West part of the country to live?

    Then you look up the symbols you got from your throws and this chart tells you which hexigrams pertain to your throws.  It's easier than it sounds.  One time through and you get the hang of it.

    Then you look up the symbols you got from your throws and this chart tells you which hexigrams pertain to your throws. It’s easier than it sounds. One time through and you get the hang of it.  Then you read the pages that pertain to the numbers on the chart.

NOTE: Once you have a question you feel good about, you can get started. Don’t forget, for the best possible outcome to bring in your Reiki to help you with the process. When I forget this step (Yes I do forget now and then) I notice the answers I get are not as clear or maybe don’t relate to my question at all. Give it a try both ways and see what you feel.

REIKI & THE I CHING

You know me, I’m a Reiki Gal, everything I do, I combine it with Reiki and I feel and know I get more accurate results. The Reiki helps me to be more centered and grounded, in the here and now. That way I am devoted to my questions but not attached to the outcome. The Reiki helps me to bless the process with spiritual power, protection of the highest and most divine order as well as bringing in my Reiki Guides for spiritual information and intuition. This time when I asked for my Reiki Guides, I saw a new I Ching Guide come in to help too. This was a pleasant surprise.  I believe he came in to help the whole group.

THE HOW: Before you ask your I Ching question:

  1. Gassho – prayer position -(hands in prayer position in front of your heart) ask Divine to bring in your Reiki through you.
  2. Ask Divine for (hands in prayer position in front of your third eye) the Highest and most Sacred Order of Reiki Guides for the greatest good of all involved.
  3. Hold the coins you choose to use in the I Ching and bless them with intention or the Power Symbol.
  4. Still holding the coins, cleanse them with intention or the Mental/Emotional Symbol.
  5. Still holding the coins, energize the coins to the perfect vibration for you and your questions answer with intention or again, the Power Symbol.

COMMENTS FROM THE GROUP

Each person who attended this workshop felt very profound results.  Each one was happy to write down their thoughts about the evening with Charlie and the I Ching.  I hope you enjoy reading them.

Reiki Blessings to you all, thanks for reading,

Josslyn

“This I-Ching stuff was a lot more profound than I expected. Not that I doubted that the power of synchronicity could influence coins as well as it does anything else, but I didn’t expect it to be quite so relevant, eerily relevant. The words in the book were direct echoes of what my own Guides have been telling me. I suspect that Charlie might have had as much to do with that as the process itself? I will need to play with it myself and see what I get. But there was something about him that impressed me as much as “the results.” I’m glad I decided to come and have the opportunity to be introduced to both Charlie and I-Ching! Thank you!”  Amber

“Charlie is an excellent storyteller and I enjoyed hearing his life’s journeys that led him to the I Ching.  He has a great energy and is a good mix of East and West.  the readings were right on the money and made perfect sense.  By interpreting the changes and then reading the evolving answer was very cool.  I would like to do more and would enjoy hearing Charlie again.” Robert

“Charlie presented a fascinating story of his involvement with the I Ching and using it in his daily life. Having a chance to pose my own question, then casting my hexagram and having it read & interpreted was a profound experience. The descriptions of where I am at in my spirituality, mental & emotional state were ‘spot on’, and helped me understand the more complex nuances of the interpersonal relationships involved in answering my question. As a result of this evening workshop, I have already ordered my own copy of the I Ching Workbook.” Penny

“This (I Ching reading) changed what I thought I wanted to focus on (in life).  I now have a new passion to discover.”  Lisa

“The I Ching reading has been with me throughout this week. My static “just chill” and “just be “words echoed in my head and helped calm me. The I Ching experience was right on target!! Charlie was extremely interesting and I’d love to hear him talk again on any subject. He should do a day work shop. I always have fun at your house and get very energized.  Thanks again for all the blessings.  Hugs, Sharon”

“WOW, is all I can say.  Working with the I Ching in a group setting was extremely profound.  All six of us got answers that resonated with us on a deeper level than we had anticipated.  The ancient texts go into such detail about what is happening or going to happen, much deeper than any other divining took I’ve worked with.  Having Charlie to read the text to us helped me to be able to listen from a place of higher knowing and interpret how the text related to my specific situation intuitively.  I asked a question about a class I was considering taking and got a very obvious “NO” answer.  Not the right time.  With much detail as to what would happen if I choose to take the class anyway.  After the reading I got, all seven of us voted that I NOT TAKE THE CLASS at this time.  And, the answer from the I Ching was consistent with what my guides had been telling me.

The other questions I’ve asked in the week since the class have been just as profound and in-depth.  For example, I asked, what are the dynamics of me going to Sedona this July with my soul sister for her 40th Birthday celebration? and I got; Although your position has been less than ideal, you will finally meet with the right elements to help you achieve your aim.  Enthusiasm coupled with wise decisions lead to good fortune.  There was more, much more, but that was my favorite part.  The text gives you five or six paragraphs of information about your question, it’s very thorough and for us so far, quite accurate.” Josslyn

Writing with Reiki

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

If you want to skip the story and get right to the HOW, scroll down to the HOW.  Otherwise, we learn a lot from other people’s stories, enjoy mine.

WRITING HISTORY

Both my parents were teachers.  My mom in particular helped me extensively with research papers in middle school and high school.  (Thank you mom and Happy Mother’s Day!!) We didn’t know it back then but I am what doctors now call A.D.D. or A.D.H.D.  I rarely remember anything that I don’t use on a daily basis and can’t follow written instructions to save my life.  ( I didn’t know it then, but I have the perfect intuitive brain for what I do now as an energy healer.)

Here is the only photo I have of me studying through all my school days.  But, hey, there is my trusty typwriter

Me in college,  the only photo I have of me studying through all my school days. But, hey, there is my trusty typewriter and my research paper next to it.  The Coke was a joke, but we did drink a lot of it back then.

However, research papers were something I could do and do well.  It just required long hours of work.  Long hours of work, that I could do.  And, I got very good at it.  So, my mom and I would spend days, weekends, weeks even, filling out note cards with information from the Encyclopedia Britannica or other books we would check out from the library on my current topic.  (Sorry, no computers back then.)  We would make a bibliography and then put it all together in one grand paper.  I’d type it up (on a typewriter of course!) and I’d get an A, mainly because my papers were well written, but also longer and more extensive than any others in the class.  I put in the work and in the end, got very good at the process.  This saved me in college where I graduated with honors, again not because I was the brightest bulb in the lamp but one of the hardest working for sure.

TODAY’S PROCESS WITH REIKI

Today I am encouraged to share with you HOW I work with Reiki and my Reiki guides to do my blog writing to maybe encourage others of you to do your own writing with Reiki.  Reiki enhances ANY creative process that we do by offering Higher Guidance, Divine access to information and ideas and timing that will relate to the people who need to be reached at the exact time they need to be reached.

One of Archangel Gabriel's specialties is creativity.  Call on Archangel Gabriel to help you get motivated or any aspect of writing you need help with.

One of Archangel Gabriel’s specialties is creativity. Call on Archangel Gabriel to help you get motivated or any aspect of writing you need help with.

Blogs are great for this process because I could write a blog to be read by one person now, the person who my guides encouraged me to write the blog for initially.  But then, years later, another person will find my blog and read it and it will speak to them as well.  It will be just what they needed to read.  Their guides help them find my blog on the internet even when they weren’t researching Reiki.  I’ve heard this from my clients many times over, “I don’t even know how your page popped up, I wasn’t even researching Reiki, but it did and I read it.  It was exactly what I needed but didn’t know it.”  The internet is a fabulous tool in this way and consistently amazes me.  My Reiki guides help me with all of this.  No detail is too small for them.  When we truly listen to our Divine Guidance every day, trust it, act on it we are in the flow of Divine Energy and our timing will always be right on.  Our guides make it so.

“Your best work involves timing. If someone wrote the best hip hop song of all time in the Middle Ages, he had bad timing.”  – Scott Adams

WORKING WITHIN OUR CREATIVE FRAMEWORK

I also believe that our Reiki Guides work with us within the framework that we have in place currently, our human brain, which we chose for our exact purpose before we came here.  In my case, my human A.D.D. brain which is perfect for the intuitive process, not so great for memorizing details, is perfect for what I am meant to do in this lifetime; heal myself and others.  Our guides do not change us, make us “better” or turn us into an award-winning writer when we are not meant to be one.  I believe they work with the gifts we have chosen currently for this life,  and that they believe we are perfect just as we are.  

We come into this world with all the gifts we need, expand them, work with them, be grateful for them and they will grow.

We come into this world with all the gifts we need, expand them, work with them, be grateful for them and they will grow.

We chose to come in with these gifts for a reason.  I was not meant to be the author of the “Harry Potter” series but the author of a Reiki blog for Reiki students.  I have the gifts and talents for that-perfectly.  I work within this framework with my guides while continuing to learn and enhance my abilities as I go.  If I waited until I was a fabulous writer before I ever wrote, I’d never write.  

I say all this, because I want us to stop the negative talk that we do to ourselves.  It hurts us in so many ways, it doesn’t help.  You are exactly as you are meant to be, be grateful for it and learn how to work with it.  Learn what your gifts truly are and enhance them, work with them, be grateful for them and you will expand and grow beautifully.  I’ve found it doesn’t help to put myself down for the abilities I don’t have  (like a tremendous vocabulary, that is what a Thesaurus is for,)  but to be grateful for these gifts I do have and come from a place of gratitude as often as possible, and it is often possible.  Through gratitude of what we currently have, we gain more.  BE GRATEFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE NOW, IT IS EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE!!

“If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.”  Margaret Atwood

She was a farmer’s wife for many years, started writing articles for local journals and expanded her abilities along the way with practicing for these journals.  She finally wrote her first book because they had lost all their retirement money in the Great Depression and needed something to live on.  That was motivation.  Timing.

Having said that, if you feel drawn to writing, then write.  Don’t wait, just do it!

Reiki can help you by healing your issues around writing.  Reiki yourself for issues, such as:

  • Writing and expressing yourself
  • Being heard, sharing your thoughts, ideas and opinions
  • Fear of judgment from others
  • Self confidence
  • Safety on the internet
  • Opinions of others, criticism
  • Responsibility to others, someone using your information in a negative fashion
  • Procrastination or motivation
  • Focus
  • Flow of energy, words and thoughts
  • Any issue you have that is keeping you from moving forward on your writing journey

HOW TO WRITE WITH REIKI

  1. Meditate – in a perfect world I’d meditate before each sitting to write.  I do this often, but sometimes my ideas come when they come and I write “on the fly”.  This is preferred but optional.
  2. Get Centered and Grounded – with or without mediation, spend some time intending and visualizing being centered and grounded.
  3. Prepare yourself with the right atmosphere for you to write; time alone, nice calm music, quiet, door closed, etc.  Sometimes I don’t have any of these and manage to write anyway.  Do what you can when you can.  Don’t let the ‘perfect’ setting keep you from DOING IT!  I have kids and pets, the setting is rarely quiet and perfect for writing, but I do it anyway.
  4. * GasshoBring in your Reiki and Reiki Guides– I do this with the Gassho method.  With my hands at my heart in prayer position I respectfully ask for the Reiki to flow.  With my hands at my third eye, I ask for the Highest and Most Spiritual Order of Reiki Guides with the intention of writing a Reiki blog to come and help me in all ways needed.  Prayer hands back at my heart I intend for Grounding, Centering, a Pure Heart and a Clear  Channel for the Reiki to flow.  
  5. I imagine the Reiki flowing into my crown chakra from Divine Source and flowing down through my brain, through my heart and then through my hands for the typing and out to the keyboard.
  6. I type directly onto my blog.  I first tried to type onto word or write the blog onto paper and transfer it, but no, that didn’t work.  For me I found for the flow to flow the best, I needed to blog right onto the blank blog ‘paper.’  Do what works for you.  Try different methods but your guides will tell you what is best for you quickly.
  7. *LISTEN to your Higher Guidance while typing for ideas and phrases that work best.  This may be the hardest part, the listening.  But, also one of the most important parts.  You’ve got nothing to lose by listening but a lot to lose by not.
  8. WRITE– I write differently every time.  Sometimes I start with just an idea and work on it later.  Sometimes I’ll write the whole blog in one sitting and then edit.  Most times I take many sittings to write a blog, re-write, research, pictures, and editing.  The process is part of the learning and timing as much as anything.
  9. *Reiki Yourself – Be kind to yourself in the process.  Reiki yourself if you start having blockages come up.  Talk to yourself like your very best friend would to help get you through any road blocks to writing.  Reiki yourself some more to heal the issues we talked about up above.
  10. *Communicate with your Reiki Guides regularly I tell my guides to being me ideas for blogs anytime.  I write them down or get the blog idea started and then write it later.  This way I am always open to the intuitive flow of ideas coming from Divine.  Yes, we need to tell our guides what we want and they will do it for us.  Ask and say Thank You!

I pray this encourages some of you to do that little creative thing that has been pestering your mind and spirit lately, whether it be writing, painting, singing, drumming.   Any creative pursuit is enhanced by running Reiki at the same time.  Reiki makes the world a more intuitive and beautiful place.  I envision a very resplendent world myself and you and Reiki are all a HUGE part of it.

Many Blessings to you for reading and bringing Reiki energy into your life,
