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

Congratulations to Our Newest Reiki I Students! The Ones Who Made it Through!

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

FIRST, A Big Huge Congratulations to our newest Rain Shadow Reiki, Reiki I students!!

Congratulations Mary Ellen, Camille, and Jayne, much Reiki Love to you all!

Congratulations Mary Ellen, Camille, and Jayne, much Reiki Love to you all!

What a wonderful and fun group of women.  I know, I always say that, because it’s true.  I’m blessed to have deep, inquisitive, curious, strong, respectful, spiritual and simply amazing students to take my classes.

Of course, as teacher, I take some credit, because I put the intention into my manifestation of amazing students every day, that I only get the best of the best students who vibrate well with me and are meant to take my classes.  But, it’s a collision course for success, because they’ve been doing the same in manifesting the right Reiki teacher for them, so it’s literally impossible for them to NOT find me and for me to NOT find them.  I love the way the Universe works.

Healing Crisis BEFORE a Reiki Class

When I took my Karuna Reiki class from William Lee Rand, he sent the books out beforehand so we could study the many symbols prior to the class.  My ‘healing crisis’ or as I call it, HEALING OPPORTUNITY started right away and lasted in my opinion for a few years.  It was powerful or pre-menopause, not 100% sure on that one.  But, the healing opportunity started as soon as I received my manual a month before the class when in the summertime, I got a head cold.  I don’t get head colds in the summer.

“When written in Chinese the word crisis is composed of two characters.  One represents danger, the other opportunity.”        John F. Kennedy

HealingCrisisChangeThis can happen with any of the healing classes we take.  As soon as we make the firm decision to change or evolve the healing opportunity can start.  This is not the ‘fault’ of Reiki, this is a conscious decision your soul and human self has made to change, but change also comes with evolution, raising our vibration, learning.  This can look like an emotional upset, cold or flu symptoms, strange dreams, trouble sleeping or being challenged by some of your old belief patters in hurtful and difficult ways.  This is the cleansing process that the student chooses when they choose CHANGE.  When they choose to evolve and get rid of the OLD and bring in the NEW vibration, our body, mind and spirit start to dump out the old stuff that no longer serves us.  Some people start this process after the class, but yes, some of us lucky ones start right away.

From Six Down to Three

Thus, I had three people sign up for the class this week who were not able to complete it. Two of them were so sick they weren’t able to even attend the class, one came and went home early.  Could they simply have colds?  Yes, of course.  Could they be detoxifying old stuff they no longer need and thus triggering a Healing Opportunity?  Yes, of course.  It doesn’t matter the why,  the answer is the same, REIKI!!!  Drinking lots of water, extra rest and taking an epsom salts bath helps a great deal too.  So, my recommendation is, stick with your first intuition to evolve and take the Reiki class at your next possible opportunity.  If you already have Reiki, REIKI YOURSELF A WHOLE LOT, EVERY DAY!  That is my prescription for a healing crisis/opportunity.

“Healing is not an overnight process, it is a daily cleansing of pain, it is a daily healing of your life.”   Leon Brown, found not guilty from new DNA evidence, after 30 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.  

I’m greatly proud of ALL my Reiki students for being on their spiritual path and continuing to move forward despite difficult conditions.  You are so much stronger than you know.

LOVE THIS PIC THE BEST! Such excitement.

LOVE THIS PIC THE BEST! Such excitement.

And, again, congratulations to my wonderful new Reiki students from this weekend, the ones who did make it through.  I cannot wait to see where your Reiki path goes.  So exciting.

 

 

Reiki Blessings to you ALL,
