A Sensitive System

“A Sensitive System” is the first in a series of blogs written by Josslyn Streett of Rain Shadow Reiki for her series on nutritional healing and juicing.

Do you ever wonder why some people can eat anything they want and not gain weight?  Why some people can smoke and drink and still live into their 80’s or 90’s?  Or why others can do such stressful jobs and not look stressed ALL the time?  I have wondered these things all my life.  That is because I am the opposite of those ways.  I look at food and gain weight, seriously.  Once it’s on it’s very difficult to get it off.  I feel frazzled and stressed out almost all the time and my body can’t handle bread let alone alcohol.  So what is the difference between these people?  I’m still working at answering that question completely.   Yes, some of it is genetics, but aren’t genetics just energy too?  For me, some of the answer is, I’m different. Special.  Blessed in a special way.  My friend and mentor, Jill Raiguel says “We have been blessed with sensitive systems.  It is up to us to care for them.”

Over the years I’ve discovered that one of the reasons I’m so sensitive is because I’m clairsentient.  Some of the signs of being clairsentient are:

Clairsentient people often feel like they don’t fit in anywhere, even in their own families.

  • Feel stressed easily and need a lot of time ALONE.
  • Crowded noisy places leave you feeling exhausted.
  • You feel tired on waking even after many hours of sleep.
  • Others feel better having been with you or having spoken to you.
  • Suffer from physical sensitivities, unexplained aches and pains  (stomach disorders, eye problems, migraines, or sinus troubles.
  • You feel different and have some sense of not belonging.
  • Have trouble remembering facts but are creative and imaginative.
  • In relationships do you find yourself with “emotionally unavailable” partners, probably ending up with the emotional work for two?

If any of these made sense for YOU then you may want to read the full-page on being clairsentient before continuing.  I am clairsentient and have a great deal of experience in helping others to work with it, live with it and view it as a beautiful gift in their life every day.  It is possible but it does take some dedication, practice and know how.

A New Beginning

And so it begins.   I have been blessed with a sensitive physical body and have finally come to terms with it.  Now what?  What matters now is HOW to deal with the physical part.  I’ve learned how to work with the energetic part and the psychic part, it is my physical bodies’ turn and it is crying out loud for it.  My main current physical bodily symptoms are:

Migraines are extremely painful. Mine always come with the throwing up part too.

  • depression
  • migraines
  • thyroid disease
  • immune system dysfunction
  • lifelong hormonal fluctuations, with severe headaches and emotional fluctuations
  • adrenal burn out
  • chronic fatigue
  • weight gain
  • difficulty concentrating and remembering
  • A.D.D.

Not THAT Sensitive

literally poison to me and other sensitive people

I have heard about psychics who rarely even leave their homes because they have so many allergies to chemicals, fragrances, the energy of being around so many people and foods, that being in public for them is dangerous and simply not worth the chance of a break out.  I always considered myself lucky that I’m not THAT sensitive.  Hey, I can still shop at the grocery store, right!?  I must be o.k.  But, I do believe I’ve been a bit in denial about it.  Because you know what, I am pretty darn close to that, sensitivity wise.  I can eat whatever I want if I don’t mind the migraines, the total lack of energy and  memory, depression and mood swings.  Thus, I eat what my body wants and not what I want.  Luckily I’ve found that by eating what my body wants, my taste buds quickly change and soon enough I want it too.  It all works out.

Raising your energetic vibration

Eating in a Higher Vibrational Frequency

Eating is one of the things that has been the biggest challenge for me and the higher I raise my vibrational frequency with Reiki, meditation  and working through my past issues, the more sensitive I am to the lower energy foods.  When talking this over with my Medical Intuitive, Candia Sanders, she said the goal is to raise your vibration to such a level that you are then ‘above’ the sensitivities and they no longer bother you.  You become immune in a vibrational way.  Raised above, so to speak.  I have yet to reach this elevated station and thus, continue to give up foods that I can no longer tolerate in hopes of someday getting to it.

We Are All the Same, We Are All Unique

I believe everyone is different, every body is different and therefore what is not good for me is different from what is not good for someone else.  I do not ever expect anyone to live life the way I do but I hope to encourage anyone who reads this to live the life that is best for them.  Listen to YOUR body.  Find out what YOUR body wants and DO IT.  This is a story about me doing that and making it through the hard parts to the other side so that you and everyone who reads this can know that it is totally possible and doable.

I am definitely not a saint.
Saint Lucy

I Am No Saint!  Where’s the Beef?

Saying that, I’ll also tell you, I am no saint.  I love all the things I’m not supposed to love; meat, alcohol, bread, pasta (deserves its own category) cheese (really love cheese), sugar and more.  I am, pretty much a lover of food overall so giving up foods I love one after another for the past eighteen years has not been any easier for me than it would be for anyone.  The first food I had to give up was red meat; beef and pork.  Years of IBS in my twenties was enough to tell me it was not good for me and time to give it up.  I have not had a beef hamburger for over 17 years.  I miss them from time to time, usually when my family is eating them, but really, overall, it’s not a big deal.  I rarely think about it.

Migraines Will Convince Anyone

A year and a half ago I started getting migraines if I ate sugar, wheat or soy.  I thought I would die, both with the migraines AND knowing that I’d have to give up wheat, soy and sugar all at the same time.  I had been mainly gluten-free at home for many years but ‘cheated’ when I went out.  No more cheating.  With some help from my Naturopath, I gave them all up and have had very few cravings for at least a year.

Next Adventure

So, my next challenge and adventure to improve my vibrational system and my health is to give up dairy.  I have cut it back, way back, from how much I used to eat but that isn’t enough.  I grew up on dairy, love dairy; milk, grilled cheese, cheese and crackers, quesadilla, mac and cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese!! I haven’t met a cheese I didn’t like, ever.  It is my ultimate comfort food, my emotional go to food and I do not want to say goodbye forever.  But, I will.  My body has been giving me messages that it is time. Time to give up all dairy from my diet.  And, finally, I’m ready.

That is me as a little girl, loving me some grilled cheese sandwich. Mmmmmmmmm

It is my belief that YOU have to be ready or you won’t do it.  For me to be ready it usually takes me hitting a wall, reaching bottom, being really sick before I’ll be ready.  That’s because I have a really hard time with change.  Reiki has been helping me slowly over the years and THIS year I have made leaps and bounds of change towards letting go and altering my life, my habits, BEFORE I have to.  Yeah!!  Big applause for me because this has been a tough one for me, holding on to everything to protect myself, yet hurting myself at the same time. This has been going on my entire life.  Some of you know what I’m talking about and the rest of you probably think I’m crazy.  Oh well, it won’t be the first time I’ve been called crazy, that’s for darn sure.  So, my next adventure is here.  A total and complete change of my eating system for the rest of my life, something  extremely drastic for me, not only giving up dairy but also doing a complete fruit, vegetable and body cleanse.  I will be detoxifying and clearing out my digestive system by eating 99% fruits and vegetables and juicing for one week.

Yeah, Big Applause for me and the major progress I’ve made!

Take a Reiki Vacay

Vacation – A period of rest from work or study.   

I recently did a session where the client had not come for quite a while and then he started coming back again.  This happens, it’s part of the spiritual healing adventure many of us are on and I respect each person’s individual journey.  I also appreciate greatly the clear determination that it takes to stay on this path of Truth, Love and Light.  I’m always happy to see my clients come back again and I let them know this.

“Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory.”    Gandhi

You can’t get to the victory and triumph phase without going through the drudgery and struggle phase.  What more interesting humans we become through the more difficult phases.

Oooohhh, scary…

I found this client and others, from time to time, hesitant at first and seeming a bit scared to come back to see me.  Although, here they were in my Reiki room for a session.  I understand why clients are sometimes a bit hesitant because often coming to see me for a session of energy healing and psychic work means delving deep into issues that they want gone, but maybe aren’t ready to deal with head on quite yet.  Dealing with some important emotions that have been buried for a long time or making changes to one’s life can often times be more than what one is ready for. It also means CHANGE.  Ooooohhh that scary word.  That’s ok.  It’s all good!  It’s important to honor the path each person choses to take no matter how long it takes or how rocky it becomes.  This takes patience on all parts to know when the right time is to tackle the next big issue and determination to not give up before one has reached their healing goal.

Little by little one walks far.”  Peruvian Proverb

Reiki Vacay   

Reiki Vacation

At times like this, I recommend taking a Reiki Vacation.  This doesn’t mean stopping the Reiki, it means allowing yourself to throughly be absorbed INTO the Reiki.  Allowing the Reiki to relieve your stress, release your tension and help you feel like you’ve been on vacation for a week instead of on my table for an hour.   Allowing the Reiki to give you a period of rest from work or study.  Doing the Reiki, but taking a break from the deep emotional stuff that you are not quite ready for yet.  How do we do the Reiki and take a vacation from it at the same time?  Good question.

Break the Pattern

Usually this means simply doing something different.  Try taking a break from the psychic information that I receive while doing a session.  Most of my clients want me to be “turned on” to the flow of psychic information while I’m working.  They like receiving information about them, their family, significant other, pets, job, etc.   However, sometimes it means facing things that some people feel are pretty heavy or deep, and that can at times seem off-putting.  It’s not the information that is scary, I’ve found, but actually dealing with the emotions and the change that may come up that is usually difficult for people.  It can also be me and the fact that I symbolize to them the working on of deep issues more than the actual information I receive.  Most of the time receiving the psychic information is exciting, fun and not intimidating at all,  That’s why people like it.  Plus they can feel that we are healing levels deep down within them that they may not have known about otherwise.  It’s very cool.

Quite often people are so used to me being “turned on” during a healing session that they come to believe that is how a Reiki session always is.  Not so at all.  The psychic information I receive from my guides is a whole other component TO the Reiki session that I can add in.  But, it is NOT the Reiki.  My guides are talking through me and working with me, but it is not the Reiki.  The Reiki is the ‘Divinely Guided Life Force Energy’ that comes through me to heal blockages in the client’s body, not the information itself.  That is different.

Reiki – It’s all Good!

Take a break from the information if you feel this will help.  I have done this in these situations and it seems to calm the person and allow their energy to flow smoother, the stress to leave faster and their emotions able to be back at a more neutral level where they can then make good decisions from an intuitive place rather than a stressful place.

The Reiki is all good, the healing energy is Divinely guided and knows exactly what you need.  It will never give you more than you can handle.  The Reiki will never go faster than you are ready for.  It goes and does exactly what you need it to when you need it to.  Often times, in fact, when people need a respite, my guides will automatically GIVE my client a rest by turning off the information anyway.  At this point, my client and I go very deep into meditation during the session so the Reiki can do its work.  My clients come out of it saying “WOW, what was that, that seemed really deep!”  But, they still aren’t sure what happened because they can be so used to me telling them.  Sometimes, we just have to go with how we FEEL and TRUST that.  Clients who are used to receiving information will sometimes be sad that they didn’t receive any.  I explain that the Reiki does exactly what they need and what they needed was JUST the Reiki.  I find that the more we trust this Divine energy, the more it can do the best for us.

Surround yourself in Love and Light

Surrounded by Love

Much of the time I feel the Divine healing energy adjusting to a very fine, very soft and pure loving energy to bathe or surround the client in total Love and Light.  I’ve had clients tell me afterward that it was the only time in their lives they ever had felt completely safe.  Or they say that they could feel the Love surrounding them like they were floating on Love and Light.  Almost every time my client tells me they feel lighter afterwards and less stressed.  Yeah!  Isn’t that what we want!?  Yeah, Reiki Vacay!!

When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”  Paulo Coelho, Author of “The Alchemist”

Float in the Love and Light of the Reiki energy. The mountain won’t seem so big and scary any more.

You Direct the Reiki

Reiki will always go with your highest good.  It will never impede your free will, and neither will I.  Therefore, if you are not ready to work through a big issue, it will not force you to.  It will simply bathe you in Love and Light and beautiful healing energy until you are ready.  The good news about that is that because you didn’t give up, you kept coming for Reiki sessions and bathed yourself regularly, you will be strong enough and ready to focus on the big issue sooner and it will be much easier to do so.  By that time, the so-called “big issue” doesn’t seem so big anymore and it leaves quite easily.  I have seen this over and over with clients who Reiki on themselves regularly.  They Reiki themselves diligently and by the time they get to me, they are ready for me to take out the mountainous energy that has now been whittled down to a small mole hill.  It’s beautiful.

And think of all the amazing patience you are learning through this journey! Absolutely inspiring!

Wow, why do I feel like taking a trip to Hawaii all of a sudden!?

Welcome!

Welcome to Rain Shadow Reiki,

My name is Josslyn Streett.  I am an intuitive energy healer, teacher and reader.  That means I use my intuition as well as my knowledge of the world and other worlds to guide and help others.  I empower my clients to heal themselves through the use of Infinite and Divine Universal Energy, which I often choose to call God.  I work with clients both over the phone and in person so I can work with you, no matter where you are in the world.

Divine Source has called me to this work. I believe we each have our own different path to take and mine led me here.  I strive to do this work with the highest ethics, compassion and separation of ego self.  Energy work is my passion and my work both. It’s the most exciting and interesting profession I can think of.  Every time I work with a client I get even more enthusiastic about the work I get to do and know that through God, I am truly able to help people move forward and be happier in their lives.

Me and my youngest son on my favorite place in Sequim, The Dungeness Spit!

Where are we?

I work and live with my family on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in the state of Washington.  We are in the northwestern most part of the United States of America surrounded by the Olympic mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Hood Canal, the Hoh Rainforest and if you believe some books, vampires! LOL.

All of the main photos at the top of the page you see on my website have been taken by me on the peninsula.

What is a Rain Shadow?

The yellow areas get 15-20 inches of rain per year.  Sequim is in the top left area where the yellow is near all the green.  Light green gets 30-40 inches per year, dark green gets 40-60 and purple gets 140-180 per year.  Big difference.  www.wamaps.com

The northern part of the peninsula is unique because it is a rain shadow.  (top left part of the map near all the green is a little banana yellow area, that’s us.)  That means most of the rain falls onto the mountains and by the time it gets to us, the clouds are rained out.  Which means we get more sun than any other place in western Washington, less rain and less gray.  We get about 20 inches of rain a year and only a few days of snow in the winter.  It makes this area an ideal place to live and for me, to raise my family.

Magic!

Enjoy the photos of our beautiful home and check out the website while you are at it.  We feel it is an extremely magical place to live.   To read more about me and/or our journey you can go to “My Story. ”

If you were drawn to this website, it is no accident.  My guides must have a message for you.  I invite you to look around at what interests you and if you feel called to do so, email or call me for an appointment.  I am here for a reason, to spread Love and Light around the planet as I am drawn to do so.

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed.  It feels an impulsion.  This is the place to go now.  But the sky knows the reasons and patterns behind all clouds.  And you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”
