Peninsula Healers Circle – Healing with Bach Flower Music

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

Hello Reiki friends, thank you for being patient with me while I process the death of my father.  I have not written a blog for a while and the grieving/healing process is why.  Therefore, this blog which I meant to post much earlier is a bit late.  But, better late than never, so I present to you a very exciting sound healing opportunity, Bach Flower Remedy Music!! If this sounds exciting to you, please read on….

Music affects subtle energies, only called subtle because we don’t know how to measure them. These energies allow you to achieve goals and dreams – or not. These energies allow the spark of life to live in you, inspire you, and give you joy, so you can become an adventurous explorer, curious and in awe of the wonders of the universe. When you’re consciously in touch with life energy within yourself, you have control of the valve that connects you to Spirit, and whether or not you have accidentally turned it off or on.

PENINSULA HEALERS CIRCLE  Hosts Musician/Healer, Al Harris for its August 2015 Speaker

We are so fortunate to have veteran musician Al Harris choose the Olympic Peninsula for his home and come to present for our healers group.

About Al Harris

Al Harris, Musician/Composer/Healer

Al Harris, Musician/Composer/Sound Healer

Having loved music from a young age, Al Harris “traded in” his law degree for a music career, and for 12 years wrote and arranged scores for radio, TV and film.
Sensing the healing power of music, he studied widely and deeply; and to better understand vibrations and frequencies, he studied alternative healing: herbology, sclerology, reflexology, acupressure, kinesiology, geotran, holodynamics, flower remedies, holographic re-patterning and tai chi. Subsequently, he composed and recorded the music for the Bach flower remedies.

Al Harris is a musician who, after encountering the Bach flower remedies, realized the value of using them with music to foster health and well-being:

Final and complete healing will come from the soul, form within

“Final and complete healing will come from within, from the soul itself.” Dr. Edward Bach

The Process of Composing

“Writing the 38 Bach Flower Music pieces was both interesting and grueling. Over a period of a year, I experienced each emotion so I could find the particular music that would heal it….

  • An emotion would surface to show me which remedy to work on next.
  • I read Dr. Bach’s writings, to tap into his healing intent.
  • I found the frequency of the flower remedy I needed, using kinesiology.
  • I played the frequency to myself for a week, to tune into the remedy.
  • I wrote the music based on what the remedy “told” me.

The 38 pieces of music were written with the following flavors – blues, bluegrass, Brazilian, classical, country, East Indian, “forties,” Irish, Jamaican, Japanese, and jazz. As I “lived” with each remedy, it suggested a particular style.”  Al Harris

The Benefits of Listening to the Music

There are three main things you can do with Bach Flower Music:

  • Balance your emotions when you’re stressed or anxious.
  • Tap into your inner knowledge to create what you want.
  • Increase your prosperity

OUR PHC BACH FLOWER SESSION WITH AL

At our teaching session with Al, he told us that people who have worked with his Bach Flower CD have told him it works as good or even better than the remedies themselves.  And the Bach Flower music can be used in conjunction with the remedies or by itself.

This is a good chart for seeing which flower essence to be applied to which emotional situation.  But Al taught us that we cannot always take them so literally, sometimes we need a different remedy.  This is where our own intuition or muscle testing can help us to determine what we truly need.

For our class he played the music while we practiced some automatic writing.  He’d play one of the choices three times based and we’d write about how we felt with this music.  Then he would tell us what emotion we had been listening to.  It was very interesting and sometimes emotional.  Then he let people pick some of the remedies they were interested in hearing and listened to them.  Then we focused on individuals who wanted healing for a certain situation.  Al used kinesiology to determine which music they needed and while playing it we all practiced automatic writing about their situation and then shared with them our insights.  It was enlightening for us as well as the person who asked for the healing information.

We had a lot of fun and got a really good idea of how we could work with this music.  It helps if you know kinesiology and can test which music you need and how many times to play it, but if you trust your intuition you could do this too.  It is not background music that you put on and just let it play, each short 3 to 4 minute composition is a healing tool.  Based on what you need, that is what you play.  The muscle testing helps you to know which composition and how many times to listen to it and for how many days.

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!!

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

Reiki is a Choice! Congratulations to my Reiki Mens Class!!

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

First of all, I’d like to say a BIG HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to our All Mens Reiki class!!  These men put aside all fears and reservations about what Reiki MIGHT be and went for it.  And, boy, did they go for it!

My Reiki men, truly a courageous group of men.  Reiki on!!

My Reiki men, truly a courageous group of men. Reiki on!!

A couple of months ago, two of my Reiki students informed me that their husbands, and one father would like to take a Reiki class.  “Ok”, I said, “lets manifest that.”  I knew if it was meant to be, it would happen, and it did. I opened the class up to all men who would like to take the class and asked my students (who are mostly women) to talk to their partners about the class.  Four brave men showed up, plus my husband to add moral support.

Brand Spankin’ New

These men knew very little about Reiki, other than it had helped the women in their lives.  The first thing we did in class was make sure that no single man in the room had been hog tied and brought against his own free will.  Nope, everyone came on their own.  Every man who heard about the class had the choice to come or not.  These men showed up.  Not only did they show up, they gave it everything they had.  This group of men, who were unsure of themselves in a spiritual setting and unsure of Reiki, asked more questions than most of my other classes AND they even asked questions about Reiki that I didn’t know.  They are the first class to GIVE ME HOMEWORK!!  Cuddos to them.

Never Give Up, Never Surrender

All done, feeling pretty good!!

All done, feeling pretty good!! Congratulations Dan, Robert, Noel, Joe and Jacob!!  Truly open-hearted courageous men in my book!

After learning about Reiki a bit, being attuned and practicing Reiki on themselves with success all on their first day, the men started really opening up not just their curiosity but their hearts as well. By day two, they were totally into it, taking it in and even enjoying it–although, still somewhat perplexed and confused at times.

They did not give up.  They continued on fully present, fully committed and fully prepared to truly work at making this Reiki healing part of their lives.  I was so proud of them, so amazed at their commitment and desire to learn and open up and so honored to be learning as much from them as they were learning from me.  Even when parts of the class, like meeting their spirit guides, got emotional and touched their hearts in ways they didn’t expect, these men grasped the experience and allowed it, they didn’t fight it, they just accepted.  It was truly beautiful to be a part of.

Normal, Everyday Guys

These men had very little exposure to spiritual classes or events before this class.  This truly was their first experience into energy and what is possible with it.  They opened up their heart and their minds, and their crown chakras (literally) and totally went for it.  That takes a great deal of courage.

We all have choices in our lives, sometimes we don’t feel we do, but we do.  Many men had the choice to come to this class and didn’t.  The men who showed up could have come, but closed off to something totally strange and new to them, but they didn’t.  They chose to come and they chose to jump in with both feet first into the deep end and totally go for it.  Because of that, they each had their own true spiritual experience that made the class unique to them and will most likely stand out in their minds as a very important day in their spiritual growth.  Having the spiritual experience is what most of us are seeking without knowing it, if you chose to open up to it as these men did, you will get it.  Maybe not at first, maybe not what you expect, but you will get it.

Now what they do with Reiki from here on out is truly their choice.

I’m available for help after class to answer questions, hold Reiki Circles and Round Tables, but it is up to each student to DO for themselves, to ‘show up’ for themselves each and every day and actually practice their Reiki on themselves. Reiki is like anything else in this world, we have to actually DO IT in order to feel any difference in our lives.  That is a little trick Divine plays on us, we must do a certain amount for ourselves, then we’ll be met part way by miracles.  Are you ready for your Reiki miracles?

Have you done your Reiki today?

The DOING comes first, the mini miracles come later…

Much Love and Light to all of you, I’m so incredibly grateful for my Reiki community.  I am truly powered daily by Reiki and your Love!!  Thank you for your loving comments, I’m so grateful for them as well.

Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Peninsula Healers Circle – March 2015 BELLY DANCING for Healing and Fun!!

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

Bringing some fun into our healing circle of amazing healers on the Olympic Peninsula!

Bringing some fun into our healing circle of amazing healers on the Olympic Peninsula!

The Peninsula Healers Circle is a circle of holistic/integrative healing practitioners living and working on the north Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.  We meet on the third Friday of each month to learn from each other and meet and get to know other healers.

Our goals are:

  • to build a mutually supportive community of healers
  • to develop a more in-depth understanding of the different healing modalities offered by members of the circle
  • to offer a site where people can locate healing practitioners of various modalities in our areanetworking and referral base
  • to offer appropriate integrative care to our clients

March Madness- Belly Dancing!!

BellyDancingEdit2015Something new for the Peninsula Healers Circle, to accommodate more healers who work Friday mornings, we will meet in the evening for the change of season months; March, June, September and December.  We are hoping to get to know a more diverse group of healers this way.  For March our evening presenter was changed at the last-minute due to illness.  Rena Raymond and Barb stepped up one night before and organized a belly dancing class and henna night for all of us.  It was a blast.

Joss’ Laymen’s History of Belly Dancing

 Rena and Barb have been belly dancing for thirty years and much of that together as a team.

Me on the right with my Reiki Master/Teacher student, Amber.  Amber has taken belly dancing lessons for years so she helped me a lot.

Me on the right with my Reiki Master/Teacher student, Amber. Amber has taken belly dancing lessons for years so she helped me a lot.  Thanks Amber!  The teacher becomes the student, every time.  LOL

I was surprised but happy to learn that until approximately fifty years ago, belly dancing was a dance by women, for women.  The woman created the dances and danced them for their health and happiness, not for the men.  The men were not allowed in the women’s chambers and this is one way they stayed healthy and active and expressed themselves.  Each dance has a purpose, tells a story, much like the Hawaiian dances.

I also learned that the movements in belly dancing are very purposeful and intentional.  Each movement helps the body remove blockages in the energy system and creates a stronger body both physically and spiritually.  This is how energy healing works, Reiki, Reflexology, Acupuncture and more, they balance the body and help it heal itself by removing blockages in the system.  The whole dance is actually an energy treatment for the whole self, mind, body and spirit, and very beautiful too.
Learning the basics.

Learning the basics.

But, not so easy for me personally to accomplish in the beginning.  For me, not being a dancer or very graceful either, I could see this would be a somewhat long learning curve, but, a fun one!   I can’t think of a better way to get a workout and I really did feel better simply by wearing the beautiful jingling out fits they wear.  Those are the most fun.  I have to say, after practicing some of the figure eight moves with my hips, my lower back did feel much better the next day.  And, the most important part, it was a BLAST!!

After the dancing and potluck dinner, Rena painted some of the ladies with Henna.  They were truly beautiful.  She also taught us that the material they make Henna with is made from herbs and essential oils and is healthy and healing for the skin & body.  SO COOL!

THANK YOU RENA AND BARB!!  WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!!

Who knew there were so many fun ways to heal yourself.  I have found, when we bring joy and laughter into your healing process, it just expedites it, it works.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  Here’s to finding more ways to bring joy to our lives each and every day.
Reiki Blessings to you all,

Peninsula Healers Circle – Radiant Circuits, Our Ticket to JOY!

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

This month’s Peninsula Healers Circle topic was taught by Mary Ellen (ME) Bartholomew, a Donna Eden Energy Practitioner and Reiki Master from Port AngelesPeninsulaHealerCircleFeb15,11Let me just say, SHE WAS FABULOUS AND SO WAS THE TOPIC!!  So much of what she talked about, truly spoke to me.  It was eye-opening and I couldn’t help thinking “Wow, if everyone knew this and did this daily, there would be no depression in our world at all! Maybe even no fighting or war?!!”  Suffering from depression for so many years, I felt that joy was gone for good and I had no idea how to bring it back.  Reiki helped me with this over time and still does.  But, now I can see, I might have found my joy much quicker if I had known how to reactivate it through my energy field with the Radiant Circuits.

Chakras, Meridians & Radiant Circuits

Similar to chakras and meridians, the radiant circuits are another part of our energy system but once activated they do not have to run on any particular pathway, they can go anywhere they are needed.  They connect all our energy systems.  Donna Eden calls them Radiant Circuits but other names are Joy Flows, Strange Flows, Extraordinary Vessels and more descriptive names.

M.E. had us up dancing, tracing and bringing bliss into our bodies!!

They are the only energy system in smaller creatures, like bugs.  And the very first energy system that is created by a fetus, before chakras and meridians.  Thus the Chinese believe the radiant circuits to be the first energy system in our body’s energy system even though they were not discovered first.  The purpose of the Radiant Circuit system is to give us access to feel joy, bliss and uplifting feelings.  It is our soul’s true goal and purpose to BE IN JOY.  Radiant circuits also act as a tie between the other parts of our energy system, the chakras and meridians.

How Do We Activate Them?

Mary Ellen taught us in our class how to trace the Radiant Circuits like you would the meridians.  And four of them are the same as the meridian system of pathways.  If you are familiar with Donna Eden’s energy medicine at all (check out YouTube) you know in order to strengthen or activate your meridians you trace them along their path.

You can do the same with Radiant Circuits.  In fact, there are many good videos on YouTube that show you how to trace these radiant circuits.  I have posted a link to one that I like HERE.  It’s about 6 minutes long.  My favorite part of the whole class was at the end when Mary Ellen played a great song called ‘Thank You For This Day’ by Karen Drucker and we all danced to the music  with gratitude and positive affirmations in it, drawing infinity symbols around ourselves and incorporating tracing the radiant circuits to the music.  It was beautiful and I can’t think of a better way to start each day.  Just the dancing with so many like-minded souls activated my joy for sure.  The whole process brought me joy and helped me to feel empowered towards my goal this year which is to bring in my love and joy!

Other Ways to Activate Radiant Circuits

There are other ways to activate the circuits and if you add the intention to any of these activities you can activate them in a faster amount of time and feel joy in your life sooner.  But, like any intention and energy healing, this is an activity that needs to be done on a daily basis and is well worth the effort.

Once the Radiant Circuits are reactivated they also help us cope with the modern-day stresses of life in a more joyful light-hearted manner, helping us to get through even the most difficult of days on Earth in a more positive manner, holding onto our bliss at the same time.

Intention can be something like “It is my intention that this activity is activating my Radiant Circuits & creating joy in me as I do it!”

Reiki, Stretching, Yoga, exercise, Qi Gong, affirmations, dance, music, singing, walking with intention, creativity, gratitude, being with a beloved friend, confiding in someone you trust, anything that brings happiness and health to YOU, etc.

This is a Reiki blog, so you can bet I’m going to be adding in intentions to activate the radiant circuits for my clients during sessions and if it is needed, my guides will help me with this and I’ll know how to do it in combination with Reiki.  I can’t wait to see what results we get.  I’ll be watching the Donna Eden videos and working with Mary Ellen along the way to learn more about this fascinating new possibility.

Triple Warmer

I truly believe our souls want us to be happy and find our place of bliss.  However, while in human form on Earth most of us are constantly in fight, flight or freeze mode.  This is due to modern-day societal stresses and our triple warmer meridian, which protects us by keeping us in this stressed state.  (We must be prepared for action in case of an emergency –  that is how Triple Warmer thinks).

My favorite way to calm the Triple Warmer (the fight, flight or freeze meridian) because it's so easy to do anywhere.  Hold the spleen point under the breast and the other hand on the side of the arm above the elbow until you feel calmer, then switch and do the other side too.  Called the Triple Warmer Hug.

Hold the spleen point under the breast and the other hand on the side of the arm above the elbow until you feel calmer, then switch and do the other side too. Called the Triple Warmer Hug.

Typically Triple Warmer keeps us in fight, flight or freeze mode.  Or it takes us there unnecessarily out of old habits.  Situations all day long trigger old stressful or even traumatic memories and they take us back to FF or F mode.  This is reactivity mode where Triple Warmer activates inappropriately and when not needed.  Triple Warmer was meant to protect us, help us have quick reactions and sudden or immense strength in times of need.  (We don’t need to be the HULK all the time, but we are too often.)  TW can pull energy from all the systems except the heart.  Radiant Circuits can help to bring in calm during times of stress causing us to not go into FF or F and instead stay in a state of bliss.  THIS IS HUGE, PEOPLE!!  Modern Americans are in a state of Fight Flight or Freeze almost every day.  This is a major cause of illness and depression in our country.  This is why Reiki and other energy healing techniques like activating the Radiant Circuits is so vital at this time in our history.  It can truly help people to not only cope, but to truly find their bliss.

 A BIG HUGE thank you to Mary Ellen for introducing us to this amazing and life changing energy system.   I look forward to practicing more and bringing in more bliss and less stress.  I hope reading a bit about this has motivated you to watch one of Donna’s videos and learn for yourself.  I know I’m going to be blissed out all day today and I’m grateful for it.

“If we were talking to you on your first day here, we would say, “Welcome to planet Earth.  There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have.  And your work here — your lifetime career — is to seek joy.  As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who- you-really-are.  And in doing so, you will utilize your profound freedom.  Seek joy first, and all of the growth that you could ever imagine will come joyously and abundantly unto you.” Ester and Jerry Hicks card pack for Abundance and the Law of Attraction

Q & A – Reiki Starting BEFORE the Session Starts

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

QUESTION FROM ONE OF MY NEW REIKI PRACTITIONERS

Hi Joss,

I was wondering if you start to feel things (Reiki) working  when someone asks for sessions with you.  I am finding that as soon as someone asks me about having a Reiki session, things start working. I feel their energy allowing the Reiki from me to start some of the work.

Love and Blessings,

Sharon from Battleground, WA

ANSWER

Josslyn’s email back to Sharon

Hi Sharon, yes, this can happen.  Once a person decides to have a Reiki session and chooses a practitioner, the Reiki can start flowing right away.  This depends upon the client’s higher self (soul self) and what they need and want.  If they need the Reiki right away to start preparing them for the session, or because they really need immediate healing, then they can start drawing it right away.  It is up to you, of course, to allow this or not.  We all have free will.  Make sure it is within your boundaries to allow this or not.   Is it comfortable for you?  Are you accepting of this happening?  If you are not ready for this step yet, simply tell your Reiki Guides your intentions and ask them to help you find a solution that works for both you and your client.
Building Up the Ability to Run Reiki A lot
For some new to Reiki,their physical bodies may not be used to the amount of energy flowing through it yet.   Running Reiki all the time or when not expected to be doing it (check your boundaries), could sometimes tire them out.  Our bodies will gain the ability to run more energy and more often as we practice more often in our Reiki sessions, both on ourselves and on others.  This will get better in time as we practice more and our bodies gets more used to it.  Some new practitioners to Reiki may already be on the spiritual path prior to taking a Reiki class, doing yoga, meditation, eating healthy, doing other energy work, etc. so their bodies may be set up and ready to run Reiki more than others.  Some people may have physical bodies that are just made for this and have no issues at all with running the Reiki even all the time.

Practicing your Reiki Gassho Meditation daily will help your body adjust to running Reiki energy and help you to be able to run more Reiki, more often.

Everyone is different and we must not compare ourselves to anyone else.  Reiki is perfect for all of us at exactly the right time, teaching us as we go, as we practice.  For me, due to some chronic illness, I had to build up to this ability and it took some time and practice.  But, I got there.  I worked on my grounding, my boundaries and I really focused on being grateful for simply having the Reiki and being able to channel it.  Being grateful for where we are on our path at that time, no matter where it is, is very important to the Reiki path and being able to run more Reiki.  It was for me anyway.

Possible Solution
You might want to get a Reiki box or some designated box/bowl to put people’s names in and allow the box to act as the channel.  That way your body is not channeling to others all the time.

I purchase my Reiki Boxes from Mary Riposo at ........ for about $10 each.  They make wonderful gifts for people who work with Reiki.  That is how I got mine, a gift from a dear friend.

I use a Reiki Box that has been charged with Reiki and Reiki Symbols and can thus channel the Reiki all the time, even when I’m not putting my hands on it and running Reiki.  I keep the box next to my bed and do Reiki on it almost every night before bed. It’s become a beautiful spiritual ritual of helping others and I feel good about doing it.  This seems to help me.  That way I can ask if people want to be receiving Reiki before during and after a session and you can put them in the box.

Please let me know if this did not answer your question,
Blessings,

Thank you Joss,
That is so helpful! I love the idea of a Reiki box. The Reiki was very strong with a new client the other day. The strongest I had experienced. She wants to work with me more and I’ll discuss this with her.  I’m excited to be working with a new client that I don’t know. Somehow it helps me in receiving the confirmation from a person I don’t know. I am amazed daily by the way Reiki works in my life and makes it so much more…I don’t even have a word for it. I ‘Reikied’ my office space at work. I can feel the entire office sighing in relief.
I miss you so much!
Blessings,
Sharon

 

Use Reiki For EVERYTHING?

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

I say work with your Reiki for EVERYTHING and I really mean it. Yes, Reiki is Divine healing energy, but as my African Drumming teacher, Zorina Wolf says, “We don’t know what healing looks like.”  Only Divine knows what healing for us looks like.  What if healing looks different from a medical miracle?  What if healing by Reiki means that it directs you to the best doctor in the area for you?  What if healing looks like finding a new home that has better energy and location for your mental attitude?  What if healing looks like bringing in a new friend to your life who will love you unconditionally?  Would we have asked for that of our Reiki?  Maybe, maybe not.  But the Reiki knows what we need for our highest good and when and how we are ready to heal, we don’t always know that.

In a nutshell, here is what Reiki brings to us every time we ask for it to come through us.  With a little bit of intention for what we want, it’s incredibly powerful daily healing in the way we need it most and the timing we are ready for:

Reiki brings in Divine Power, Protection & Support:

  • Divine Protection– While channeling the Reiki energy for healing it fills and surrounds you offering you a blanket of protection so you do not take on other people’s psychic debris while they are releasing their old energies and emotions.  All you have to do is tell Divine that you’d like the Reiki to do this and the intention is even stronger.  Put a visualization or an affirmation with it and it’s even more powerful for you.  (Divine Disclaimer – Divine protection will be yours unless it gets in the way of your free will.)
  • Divine Cleansing – Reiki helps to surround you, your client and your healing space with cleansing Reiki!!  That means you and your space is clean and clear of old energy or psychic debris.  If you hold the intention of this, put visualizations to this effect it is even stronger and more powerful.  (Divine Disclaimer – Divine cleansing will be yours unless it gets in the way of your free will.)
  • Divine Guidance – when you invoke your Reiki, your Reiki guides come too whether you have met them personally or not.  If you did not meet your Reiki guides during your Reiki classes, know that they are coming along with the Reiki.  They tell you what you need to know during healings.  They tell you which chakras need clearing, how to hold your hands and for how long and much more.  Ask them questions and they will gently and quietly give you an answer in a very ‘behind the scenes’ kind of way.  NOTE: Hold the intention to your Creator that only the Highest and most Sacred Reiki Guides of Love and Light may come to help you and they will come.  Ask Divine to allow you to meet them in a meditation for yourself and they will come in some way to let you know they are with you.
  • Divine Information – My Reiki guides are with me all the time, I intend it and so it is.  They give me any information throughout my day to make my life easier and more blissful.  It is up to me to pay attention, listen and follow it, or not.  Believe me, I rebel often and don’t follow the guidance they give and then I learn great lessons in the process.  My guides even let me know what color is the best for me to wear most days.  Then they also give me important information about my healing practice such as; the best days to teach my classes, hold special events, or to rest and not work at all.  They tell me which new clients to work with or which ones to refer out to other healers for both our greatest good. They also stop clients from calling for appointments when I need a break and let them back ‘in’ when I’m feeling better.  The list of the services my guides offer me is endless, I only need to ask them and they deliver. Over the years, they save me time, stress, worries and simply make my life go smoother.  They want our lives to be wonderful and they help us in any way they can to accomplish this without ever interrupting our choice of free will.  No job is too small, the more ethical we are in our work, the more guides of Love and Light will come and help us.  Just say THANK YOU!

So, maybe you can read these helpful tips that Reiki can accomplish for us easily and effortlessly and see right away how they can help you in your healing journey.  Personally, I don’t leave home without it.

Reiki Blessings to you all,
