BUT, I can teach an army of compassion, loving Reiki people to go out and DO what I cannot.

Reiki in hospitals, Reiki in prisons, Reiki for the traumatized, Reiki for the Tribes, Reiki for the Earth, Reiki for animals, Reiki for our Veterans, Reiki for children, Reiki for the lost and hurting, Reiki for EVERYONE.

I am a Reiki Teacher and THAT is my SUPERPOWER!!!!

Vision Boards for Girls Night Out!!

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

Our whole group tonight being creative, having fun and feeling great joy at being together in this process.  Having help and support from the other ladies in the group was a HUGE help to me.

Our whole group tonight being creative, having fun and feeling great joy at being together in this process. Having help and support from the other ladies in the group was a HUGE help to me.

In our quest to have more fun included in our healing journey, our Girls Night Out group (Mystic Sisters) met this week for some ‘cuttin it up!!” Magazines that is.  My industrious students have been dropping off magazines to me all month-long.  We had a whole room full!  The ladies came in and didn’t even want to eat, they were so excited to get started on their vision board, they headed straight for the magazines and started rifling through the pages searching for inspiration.  It was the darndest thing.  I had to almost pull them away to get them to eat dinner.  A quick dinner, some fun get to know you games and we were back at it.

“I can’t stop looking at my ‘graduation card!’ It’s infused with so much lightness and love from everyone.  Whatever you decide to do for the next event, I hope it involves using our own creativity. (The vision board process) Sure did bring everyone to life and I believe it boosts our own confidence that we can indeed CREATE!” Pamela Ziemann  , Mystic Sister and author

 

Creating a vision board is probably one of the most valuable visualization tools available to you. This powerful tool serves as your image of the future – a tangible representation of where you are going. It represents your dreams, your goals, and your ideal life.

Lauren was the first to tackle the magazines and finished TWO boards in one evening.  WOW, I barely got my one done.

 Because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation-by representing your goals with pictures and images-you will actually strengthen and stimulate your emotions…  and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activates the Law of Attraction. The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words,” certainly holds true here.’ Jack Canfield

 

Reiki & Vision Boarding

I wouldn’t be earning my keep if I didn’t teach a Reiki lesson with each evening we have right?!!  Good thing to me, REIKI IS FUN!!

M.E.'s completed vision board.

M.E.’s completed vision board.

Vision boards are all about having a physical visual manifestation right in front of you to look at regularly to help focus your thoughts, emotions and beliefs on creating your vision in your physical life.  Being able to SEE it right in front of you helps the manifesting process which is stronger with emotions and visualizations.  Even the process of creating the vision board is important and stirs up the universe into aiding you in your quest because you are putting time, effort, emotion and hopefully FUN into the process.  We put so much fun into our process, we know Divine is helping us manifest our visions.  We also put a whole bunch of REIKI into our boards!!

What does the Reiki bring to the table when vision boarding?

  • Reiki helps us to be more grounded in making decisions about which pictures to cut out and which ones to leave, saving us time and frustration.

    Pamela was making a very unique and creative graduation card for a friend of hers in a pizza box that she had carried as a prop in one of her plays.  It turned out so amazing.  Hopefully she can give him this card before he reads my blog.  LOL

  • Bringing in our Reiki at the beginning helped us to be more cohesive as a group and work together to help and support each other through the process.  Everyone was sharing clips, cutting out things for other people, shouting out ideas, it was beautiful.
  • Reiki helped to set the energy in the space for lightness, community support and fun, before we even started.  I always ‘set space’ for any Reiki event and for Mystic Sisters it’s all about love, support and JOY!  (Setting space is about the intention of the feel of the energy in the space.  I make sure it’s clean and clear, safe and sacred but then add another intention specific for each event.  For this event, community, love and joy. The Reiki energy follows my intention)
  • Reiki brings in our Reiki Guides to help with intuition to know what vision of our future to go for, or which theme is right for us at this time.  Before I started, I really had no idea what I was going to create.  I just followed the Reiki and it turned out perfect for me.
  • Reiki brings in spiritual power to help us have the confidence and belief that we can in deed create that which we are setting out to create.

    Lauren was creative AND productive, she even had pictures on the back.  They beautifully expressed her vision.

  • Reiki helps us to be more creative and heal any issues around being creative.
  • Reiki helps us to take creative risks that we wouldn’t normally take while doing a process like this in front of a large group of people.
  • Reiki helps us to think less, and act more intuitively getting the job done from a higher level of thinking.
  • Reiki helps us to create our big picture vision, not our internal subconscious chaos.

…and so much more.  That’s just what I came up with in this moment. Can you think of any others and share them with us in comments!?!

Dedicated Ladies

This group was totally in to this project.  From beginning to end (midnight) they

Amber, Lisa and Lauren were my late nighters.  They were determined to finish tonight no matter what it took.  Me too, I'm a late nigher in general so I stayed to finish.  You could also call me slow, but I prefer intentional.  Smiles.

were focused but at the same time truly enjoying the process and each others help and company.  I heard more than a few times “This is so much fun!”  That’s all that mattered to me, fun was the goal and fun we had.  My guides, my girls and I were happy vision boarders.

Make Your Own Vision Board

If you have never done a vision board, here is my basic instructions on how I do it.  As with everything, I’m sure there are tons of ways, this is just one of many.  Bring in your Reiki or if you do not have Reiki yet, pray for Divine Guidance and go for it.  Allow yourself to feel joy throughout the process.  If you do not feel joy, take a break and start again later when you are ready.

  • Gather a whole bunch of magazines, don’t discriminate, you never know where that  favorite photo or quote will come from.  We were all quite surprised what kind of magazines we found some of our most stunning photos.

    1. Gather a whole bunch of magazines.  Students brought them, I went to all the thrift stores in town getting free magazines and the library too.  I got a huge assortment.  don't be shy to ask people, most people are happy to put them to good use.

  • Bring in your Reiki and your Reiki guides to be with you through the whole process, bringing you spiritual power, protection and support.
  • Ask your Reiki Guides to help you with your vision, what is most important for you to SEE at this time.
  • Go through magazines quickly without too much thought.  Make decisions fast and just tear out the pages that you are drawn to without judgement.  Just go, go , go.
  • Tear out photos and words that you are drawn to and pile them up, move on to the next page or magazine until you have a nice size pile and FEEL ready to move onto the next stage.
  • Clear, clean and prepare your space for the next process, cutting.  Get scissors, glue and poster board to be ready to lay out our rough draft.

    After we had torn out all the photos and words we wanted, we moved to a clean table area to take the next step.  We threw the trash on the floor to keep the work space clean and creative.  We had a pile area that we didn't want to use, but thought others might want, we called it the pilfer pile.  I got some good stuff out of the pilfer pile for my board.  It was great working together.

  • Cut up the photos and words to get a basic idea as to how things will fit or not fit.
  • Make quick intuitive decisions, don’t think too much, work with your Higher Self and your heart, not your head.
  • Get a basic layout and start gluing stuff down.  Know it will turn out different from you plan, but perfect as it is.
  • Glue down the background first, then start with the words and little stuff, trust your intuition all the way through.  Divine knows your bigger picture, your true souls vision, it will appear naturally if you don’t stress or think too much.
  • Just Say No!  Be aware of the ‘big picture’ and what you are truly drawn to.  You may have to make some tough decisions, get rid of a photo you really like, but that just doesn’t fit the big vision.  A cluttered or chaotic vision board may reflect what is going on inside of you now, not necessarily what you want to create in your life in the future.

    Lisa said my board felt very calm and peaceful.  That is what I was going for without really knowing it.  My mind has been quite chaotic with some intensive mental healing I've been doing lately, peaceful is what I'm really ready for.  I'm putting this next to my bed so I can look at it before I go to sleep.

  • Have fun and just allow the process to unfold.
  • Place the vision board where you will see it multiple times per day.  A very powerful time is right before bed, so maybe put it near your bed so you can look at it right before bed time and right when you wake up.  These are strong hypnotic state periods in your mind and you are very likely to take in this visual information more easily into your subconscious mind.

I had so much fun, I’m thinking of tackling this project with my Reiki kids group too.  Go for it, it’s a powerful and positive process.  Well worth the mess on the floor.

Let me know how it goes for you!!

Reiki 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

 

Our group all working together LOVING Charlie and the I Ching!!

“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

Playing Spiritual Games Safely and for Fun!

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

Rain Shadow Reiki’s New Spiritual Community Activity!!  GNO!!

I’ve talked in the past about how my guides are telling me that now, at this time, it is vitally important to the healing of our people and our earth that we gather in local spiritual groups.  If people are not part of a church, then forming or finding a spiritual group is essential to our spiritual evolution.

We evolve faster and more easily when working closely with other spiritual people of like mind.  I have experienced this first hand in my own Reiki community and can see the direct effects in my own progression.  So, once again, especially if you’ve been getting your own messages to find other spiritual people close to you, JUST DO IT!!  It is not always easy meeting new people and working closely with others, but it is highly worthwhile.

Our Reiki Communities New Group — Meet Our Mystic Sisters!

My guides encouraged me to start a Ladies Night Out group to bring more fun to our small Reiki community.  GNO was my guides idea, but I liked it and got it going with our first group activity, GAME NIGHT!!

After playing some ‘get-to-know-you’ games and filling our tummies with delicious healthy food, we voted on a name for the group and Mystic Sisters won by a slim margin.  My guides gave me this name first so it doesn’t surprise me at all that it won the vote.  So our group is called the Mystic Sisters.  The sisterhood theme was a big one as 5 out of the 7 possible names we voted on, had sisters in it.

Playing Spiritual Games in a Safe Way

The spiritual part of our evening this month was to learn how to play spiritual divining games in a safe and accurate manner.  As a child, I had a higher knowing (not that I knew what a higher knowing was at that time) that Ouija Boards and other such games could be unsafe and possibly bring in darkness.  I still have this feeling and have not ever wanted to even touch one, let alone play with one.

However, I do not feel that all spiritual games are this way.  I feel the people who create the game and HOW it is played and instructed to be played makes a big difference.  I feel some games themselves are not safe and I feel it’s possible that the misguided usage of some of these games by people who didn’t know any better or possibly used them for dark needs have over time left an imprint of lower energy that isn’t what I want to be playing with.  Just my opinion/feeling.

The Enchanted Spellboard group, a lively group with more questions than time.

The Enchanted Spellboard group, a lively group with more questions than time.

So I searched for similar games that I could feel good about.  I quickly found a series of games made by a husband and wife psychic team who had the same idea as me; wanting beautiful spiritual divining games that were of Love and Light with very detailed instructions as to how to work with these kinds of games safely.  I found Psychic Circle, Enchanted Spellboard and the Truth Fairy games all by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.  I tried them out ahead of time with some friends and had lots of fun and felt the whole time surrounded and protected by Divine Love and Light.

Intention & Prayer is Everything in Energy

Of course, prior to starting the game, we brought in our Reiki (Gassho prayer of intention), sent Reiki to the games themselves, blessing them with the Power Symbol, cleansing them with the Mental/Emotional Symbol, and energizing them with Divine Energy with the Power Symbol again (CKR Sandwich).  We cleaned and energized ourselves the same way prior to this and then said a prayer of intention calling in the Highest and Most Sacred Order of Reiki Guides of Love and Light to be with us and guide us.

Setting Space

As the host and Reiki Master in the group, I also set space prior to everyone coming over.  This means I blessed, cleansed and energized the entire home before the event.  I do this before every  event at my home.  For each event I have a different intention depending upon what the purpose of the event is.  For game night, it was Fun, Joy and Sisterly Spiritual Love!  The ‘vibe’ in the room was definitely joyful!  I teach ways to do this, but that’s another blog.  (To be continued.)

Got Reiki?  NO

If you do not have Reiki you can still pray with all of these intentions, state them out loud for emphasis and KNOW and BELIEVE that you are surrounded by Divine and working with only guides and spirits who walk in the White Light of God, and you’ll be good to go.  Put your heart, some visualization, words and intention into this process.  Don’t rush through it, it’s important, take your time and FEEL the difference it makes.

Rebel Danger

What happens if you don’t do this?  Well, sometimes nothing.  But, sometimes, if your intentions are not strong and clear, or you forget to do them at all, lower vibrational spirits who do not have your best intentions in mind can bring in wrong or misleading information, silly or joking information or even dark information.  This is not only a waste of time and confusing, it can be dangerous as these spirits could attach to you and stick around.  Believe me, you do not want this.  They can wreak havoc with your life, your health, your sleep and attract more darkness into it.  (If you feel this has happened to you, I know a trusted healer who can help.  Call or email me for information.)

It is just too easy to say a prayer of intention and NOT end up with this kind of energy around you by being in a state of Love and Light and holding Divine close to your heart at all times.  Especially if you are playing these games with others, you owe it to them and yourself to do it safely.  O.k., lecture over.

It’s All In the Question

With practice we found out that how you phrase your question is very important as well as having excitement and curious energy helps to bring in movement to the board faster and easier.  The more fun we had, the better it worked.  It was so much fun, some of the sisters wanted to play these games again next month.  Yep, it was cool!  At one point I asked if it would be in my highest good to go to Sedona this summer for my girlfriend’s birthday celebration.  The Psychic Circle board first went to GO and then landed on FIRE.  I laughed and said, “Ok, I can go, but it’s going to be very hot.”  When I told my friend this, she said that she’s a Leo and Leo is a FIRE sign.  Ok, two possible meanings.  Either way, Sedona is a good idea for me anytime.  No, I didn’t need the game to tell me that, my intuition is pretty darn good, but it was a very fun way to get an answer.

WARNING: Please do not do any kind of spiritual work while partaking in drugs or alcohol.

Mystic Sister is new and just getting started but my guides give me great ideas all the time.  I can’t wait to see where we go with this.

If you are interested in Reiki, please read my website and/or feel free to contact me with any pertinent questions via email or phone.  If you live on the Olympic Peninsula and are interested in learning more about Mystic Sisters, please give me a call.  I’d love to hear from you.

Now go out and find a new way to bring fun and joy into your spiritual path!!

Reiki Blessings,

My Guides Deliver a Mini Miracle Again!!

The weather called for rain all week for Saturday, the day of our annual drum circle.  I just kept the thought in my head of “My guides chose this date 8 months ago, they wouldn’t choose a date we’d get rained out on, unless it was part of the learning experience.”  I felt confident all would be well.

The older kids playing outside in the sun before the drumming started.  Grateful for beautiful weather.

It was a good thing I was correct in that assumption because we had so many people at this drum circle, plan B would have been a very cramped but cozy drum circle in our living room.  Gray skies and rain threatened all day long, then just as people started arriving, just like a miracle, the sun came out and shone down upon us.  It was beautiful and much celebrated.  We had out biggest and most lively drum circle so far.

Potluck

Good Food makes everything better!!

Good Food makes everything better!!

We started with a potluck for the first time, with some fabulous gluten-free, organic and healthy dishes to choose from.  What a pleasure to eat at a potluck and not have to worry about what I’m eating.  I’m sensitive to so many things, mainly in packaged foods, soy or wheat.  No worries here, I ate happily as did many of my sensitive friends.  The food was amazing.

Blessing Ceremony with Sage

We took turns making sure everyone who wanted to receive the sage got it.

Then we moved onto a cleansing, grounding and blessing ceremony with beautiful sage from California that my soul sister Heather gave me as a gift.  Sage is known for it’s cleansing ability to clear away negative or like I call ‘old’ energy.  Energy that we are ready to let go of, it helped us, but is no longer needed.  We intend for this energy to go to Heaven or Mother Earth to be healed too.  This is also a blessing to each other that we do this FOR each other in love and devotion to the cleansing of ourselves and our world, together as one.

Oscar went around the circle making sure all the instruments received cleaning and blessing too.

It’s quite a perfect experience.  We also just had a lot of fun smoking each other with the sage and feeling our stresses and worries drift away with the smoke.  Some had not done this before so it was a completely new experience and others had done this many times.  Even the kids got to experience something entirely new to them, opening up their boxes of life experiences at a young age.

Drumming for Healing

“Sound is the medicine of the future.” Edgar Cayce

Divine told me to get out of my chair and drum on each person in the circle.  So, I listened. It was better for me too since moving around is preferable for me to sitting.  It was healing for me to be able to move and dance to the beat of the drums.

I truly believe, because my guides have been telling me for about two years and getting stronger and stronger in their messages the more I listen, that sound is the medicine of the future.  They are doing great research about how different sound frequencies heal different diseases.  (Click on the link on ‘frequencies heal’ to watch a 17 min. video of how sound shatters cancer cells.  It is incredible.)  It is working against cancer and other diseases such as bacterial infections.

Really getting into the flow of the energy, melding our vibrations together in music and vibrations for healing.  When we are all in the trance of the drumming the playing takes on a life of it's own and we are able to drum from intuition.

Therefore, I truly believe in the healing power of the drum and other musical instruments and machines that create vibration.  When we are feeling joy, bliss and spiritual connection at the same time, such as during a spiritual community event like a drum circle, we can only be lifted up and healed by the process.

Reiki and Drumming

By running our Reiki while drumming we are assured to be safe from taking on

The Reiki brings spiritual power, protection and support to all who are running it and surrounded by it.  Tonight, that would be everyone.

any energies that are leaving the other people who are being healed as well as our own.  The Reiki and our Reiki guides take this energy to the perfect place for it to be healed itself and recycled into love and light again.  It’s a win/win for all involved.  While running our Reiki during spiritual activities like drumming we also are able to receive intuitive information that is much-needed.  For me this came in messages about getting up and drumming over each person.  Then it came in the form of who needed drumming most and where on their body they needed it.

I listened and the people who needed the stronger vibrations of my Reiki Attuned drum, got them.  One person said when my drum was over their head vibrating it felt like golden Divine Light was streaming into his crown.  That was a radiant personal example of why we run Reiki while doing ANY other spiritual activity.  Reiki brings Spiritual Power, Protection and Support!!

Fun and Games

After three rounds of healing drumming we took a break and Oscar Hammer, a

Reiki Master too, led us in a game called King Elephant.  It was funny, hilarious and we were all cracking up by the end.  Here is a link to HOW to play King Elephant but we picked our own animals and signs and stood up.  Here is a link to a very large group playing King Elephant where each circle of people is assigned to one animal.  Challenging but  a total blast.

Winding Up

We had some casual mix and mingle time where Reiki people got to meet and talk with other Reiki people.  Then some of us did another round of drumming and some of us kept connecting through talk.  It was, speaking for myself at least, a truly blessed evening.  I slept like a baby too.

People who wanted stronger vibrations for healing were invited to sit in the center and feel the vibrations coming from all sides.  Then I would bring my Reiki Attuned drum and play on the chakras I was guided to play to.

A BIG HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO PARTICIPATED IN PERSON OR IN SPIRIT.  YOU WERE WITH US IN THE CENTER OF THE CIRCLE GETTING HEALED AS WELL.

Love and Light to ALL my spiritual friends,

Reiki I Beginner class…Plus Baby

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

WHAT A FABULOUS DAY!!

Another first for me, I taught my first Reiki class today with a nursing baby in it.  This class came together so quickly I knew it was meant to be.  I didn’t even know  three of the ladies in the class a month ago so I know my guides set it all up for us.

I didn’t take a Reiki class until my youngest son was three years old.  So when I was approached by a nursing mom to take a Reiki class, I was very happy to accommodate and so were the other three ladies who signed up.  Each person knew there would be a baby in the class and that we may have to stop and allow his mom to take care of him throughout the class, but they all wanted to be a part of this class.  It was a beautiful thing, I must say.  Each ‘mom’ took turns holding him, mainly because we all wanted baby time, but sometimes to keep him occupied while his mom could meditate or write in her journal.  We are holding class for shorter days but more of them spread out, to accommodate not only Baby M and his mom but also another mom with a young child in day care.  See how it all works out when it’s meant to be?!  Perfectly.  Many woman with young children want to explore their spirituality but have a hard time doing it with young children at home.  I totally understand.  I’ve been there.  I’m grateful to be in a position where I can be flexible.  And, I get to have some baby time too.  A win/win.

Baby Fix

I got extra long baby holding time, while we did our morning meditation, which is about 30 minutes long.  I got to hold him while I read the meditation so his mom could get the full effects of the visualization and relaxation.  I put my book on a music stand, held Baby M. and fed him Cheerios and let him suck on my finger for most of the meditation.  Near the end he fell asleep in my arms so I got to continue holding him until lunch.  He was so calm and didn’t mind being held by a total stranger.  He loved my brightly colored blouse and the little sparkles on it.  Such a blessing.  One of my students took a picture of me right after the meditation when Baby M had fallen asleep.  Here is me teaching Reiki while holding a sleeping baby, which felt oh so natural.  Brought back some wonderful memories.  Our babies truly do grow up so fast.

Just thought I’d share this beautiful moment.

Blessings to all the ladies in this class and Baby M for hanging with us all day, we have three more days and I’m really looking forward to them all,

Love and Light to you all,

Joss

Reiki Quick Tip – Reiki Your Grocery Cart

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki

I was in the grocery store with my son, waiting in a larger than usual line and I thought, “Wow, I could just Reiki all my groceries right here, right now and it’s done!”  Brainstorm!  Why didn’t I think of this before?  It’s very simple, where else do you have all your groceries all in one place and a little extra time to work on them? (My kids are older, this may be more difficult for those of you with young active children.  Get them involved and have them HELP you Reiki your groceries.  Never too young to start doing Reiki.)

Grocery cart, bag, whatever your groceries are in, Reiki them.

WHY REIKI YOUR GROCERIES

You might say “Why Josslyn, would I want to Reiki my groceries?”  Good question.  Reiki makes your food healthier and more energized with Life Force Energy!  That’s why!

How do I know this you ask?  I have tested food with muscle testing and divining rods with my Reiki Kids group and got very specific results.  When we did Reiki on food that was not organic, the energy field of the food doubled in almost every case and in many cases equaled the organic food.  We had the same results when we prayed over the food.  When we did Reiki on the organic food, the energy field stayed the same or changed too slightly to tell.  It was already strong and healthy and full of life force energy.  When we did Reiki on McDonald’s food it helped the energy field a small amount.  But, the McDonald’s food started with NO energy at all.  It was totally unreadable with divining rods at all.  So starting with nothing, Reiki improved it some to at least make it have some life force energy.  Not worth eating though so we threw it away.  But, in some cases fast food may be the only choice available.  Hopefully not very often, but even I partake every now and then.  It’s good to know Reiki will help even this food a little bit.

NO FAST FOOD

NO FAST FOOD

Anyway, in every case, the Reiki improved the energy field of the food significantly.  Big time scientific?  NO, but good enough for me and the kids to understand that Reiki helps our food to be healthier for us and more energized.

Put Love and Intention In the Food You Make

I often Reiki the food I’m making for my family knowing that this is adding to the nutritional value of the food for the people I love the most.  But, lets face it, life is busy and sometimes we forget.  I usually catch this with prayers at the dinner table.  If we eat out I quietly put my hands over my food and while others are talking and distracted I Reiki my food before I eat or I’ll say a quiet prayer beforehand.  But, still sometimes a meal will slip through the cracks of modern active life.  If we remember to do Reiki on our groceries while waiting in line, then we know it’s done and even if we forget at the dinner table or while preparing a meal, we know the food has Reiki energy flowing through it.  For me, it’s like a Reiki insurance policy.

Reiki the food in your cupboards, your refrigerator, on your table for a big meal, etc.  You get the idea. Reiki ALL your food!!

How

This is how I Reiki my groceries.  As always, this is just one way, not the only way. Get creative and find what works and feels right for you.  Since this is a public place and many of us prefer to be incognito, I do the Gassho in my head.  Reiki is all about intention, intend for the Reiki to go to your groceries and it will.

  1. I lean on my cart with my forearms and my hands hanging over the groceries.
  2. Close my eyes and mentally/intentionally invoke the Reiki as if I were in the prayer position or the Gassho.  Next, ask Divine to send down my Reiki guides to help me.  I never do any spiritual work without my Reiki guides to help.
  3. Let the Reiki flow with intention.  You can visualize the Reiki flowing into the groceries, send Reiki symbols into the groceries through your hands or through your eyes.  You can chant the Reiki symbols in your head with the intention that they are flowing out your hands and into your groceries.  Set an intention of the healthiest food possible, delicious and nutritious, or whatever positive intention works for your family.
  4. Reiki your food until it’s your turn to load the groceries onto the belt or give them to the cashier.
  5. Thank the Reiki and your guides!

Taste

Taste a locally grown Nash's Organic Produce carrot and I believe you will be moving to the Olympic Peninsula just to eat their produce all the time.  We did.  My kids tell me while we are eating dinner "This is a Nash's carrot, isn't it!? I can tell!"  They taste alive and amazing.

My kids tell me while we are eating dinner “This is a Nash’s carrot, isn’t it!? I can tell!” They taste alive and amazing.  Like no other carrot I’ve ever eaten before.

Now, I am fortunate enough to live in an area that has an abundance of local organic produce and meats.  I now know how real food tastes.  I do believe the Reiki helps the food to taste better too.   But I have to say, buying local and organic is truly the way to get the best tasting and healthiest food ever. Yes, totally MY opinion.

But, life is as it is, our food has been tainted in many ways, even the air it grows in is not organic, so nothing is 100% clean, thus the Reiki Food Insurance Policy.  Reiki your food!!  Do it for a month and see how you feel about your food afterwards.  Feel if your relationship with food has changed, your calmness at meal times or your desire for healthier foods.  I’ll be interested in hearing how that experiment goes.  At the least you add more spiritual practice to your life and your eating and that is always a good thing.

Blessings to all,

Josslyn
