Reiki, Energetic Gifts, and More ~ The Transition to the Next Golden Age

What is there left to say about 2020? I was initially excited that another Metal Rat Year was in motion, but now I know that the first Metal Rat year in my lifetime ( my birth year) was much more pleasant and hopeful . While I hold no illusions that a new calendar year will extinguish all of 2020’s horror and  loss, I do believe in the power of collective intention and action.

Let me briefly share some updates and well wishes as we cross the finish line and enter 2021:

Tiger’s Eye Owl
Ocean Jasper found only in Madagascar, the name of one of my guides.

 

I have been devoting more of my time to learning experientially about energetics and it is a slow process. I have known about chakras, reiki, and crystals for some time but never truly put in the effort to get a handle on how they work or my relationship with them. Some folks have asked me to share more about my reiki experience so here is a brief update: I received my final attunement for Reiki I certification in October and it seemed to coincide with more GI distress. My health continues to be unstable since the summer and I continue to adjust and find ways to help heal and soothe my physical form. What I have discovered so far is that Reiki becomes more obvious with more consistent application. Sometimes my meals taste better and my plants grow stronger after I apply Reiki. Other times I do not notice any change. I also notice that Reiki seems to be stronger when I lay down to receive it. My hands do seem warmer to the touch and my body begins to warm from the feet on up. While I do not see definitive shifts in my health, I sense that there is some improvement. I will keep practicing and be patient. It does seem miraculous that I now have access to this powerful energy, but don’t we all have access to more than we know?

Meeting more people online has led to more joy and discoveries. One recent example is some amazing abundance via Facebook. Through a FB group I attended a holiday crystal sale/auction. While I did not “know the ropes” of this process, I ended up with two beautiful pendants. The first is a tiger eye owl that I bought early on in the event. I learned that tiger eye is associated with the solar plexus chakra and offers protection. I am very drawn to earth tones and Owl is one of my totems. It is quite odd that two of us wanted the same pendant and I did not use the proper terminology in securing the sale. The other woman who wanted the owl decided to let me purchase it because I declared my intent first. I thanked her and found that to be very kind.

I actually won this gorgeous Ocean Jasper  pendant adorned with 2 spirals in a giveaway for those who made a purchase. This was curious because a few of us chose 111 for the random drawing and entered the contest earlier. I felt very fortunate, especially when I learned about Ocean Jasper’s connections to the heart chakra,  bringing forth happiness and relaxation. Jasper tends to be a good fit for me and the lovely spirals are quite powerful symbols.

I did a 4 card tarot reading for myself with the Goddess Tarot Deck for the Cancer full moon and 3 of the 4 cards contained swords, signaling the end of difficulty and suggesting the use of intellect and communication. I also pulled a new card for me, the Walawak/Oppression. It was drawn upside down, so here is the reversed card meaning :

Reversed: Though your situation may feel overwhelming and intimidating, hidden forces are at work to transform things for the better. Be patient.

Considering my employment and health status, I see this as incredibly hopeful. It was really the perfect message to receive as 2020 comes to a close.

I know as an Astrologer that 1-1-21 is an artificial demarcation and could choose from a number of dates to be a more suitable time to start a new year. But what matters is where and to what we attribute meaning. The collective ritualization of New Year’s Eve on 12-31 and New Year’s day on 1-1 gives these days power and agency. So I woke up today after an amazing dream of seeing a glowing star/ ship? in the sky feeling peaceful and more relaxed that I have in days. Both of my friends and my mother are healing well and the friend who had a life threatening illness is out of the woods! The mail today included some surprise cards and gifts that left me feeling a completion.

As I exit 2020 I am grateful for all of you who travel with me on my path of awakening, being there for some or  all the moments since I began blogging almost 8 years ago.  Your presence is such a precious gift. Thanks to all who have donated to the blog and who have gotten readings or participated in blog challenges. I appreciate you ❤ !

I will leave you with another find of 2020, the music of Tim Janis. His videos combine soothing music with up close images of Gaia’s bounty. The marriage of music and photography are stunning. As you view the video, imagine the world you want to create. The Golden Age aka Age of Aquarius is already here in some form. It is up to all of us to uncover the  glorious new possibilities that have been obscured by the negativity. Here’s to more excavation and alchemy, bringing us closer to the New Earth. I wish everyone the reversed Wawalak blessings, an end to oppression for all time. Utilizing energetics may also be a tool for the way forward.

Blessings to you in 2021 and beyond!

Reiki and me

Hey litebeings, I received my Reiki 1 attunement last night from Reiki Master and friend Sarah at Ocean Dreams Energy Healing and will report on this later. In the meantime, I have been wanting to share this 7 year old post for some time. It is my first experience receiving distance reiki and man was it powerful! The practitioner and former blogger Heidi went on to build a successful practice in the UK and I think of our connection made here at WP often.

To learn more about my wonderful teacher Sarah’s services, visit both of her sites here and here !

We all work with energy whether we believe it or not :}

I want to shout it from the digital rooftops  Reikiworks!! I hope that I grabbed your attention dear readers, because you are in for a treat.

First I will share some background: I really am open-minded when it comes to alternative healing. I prefer it to Western Medicine because I abhor tests and am allergic and/or have lousy reactions to many medications. While I am lucky to have found some wonderful doctors who really care about me, their methods don’t seem natural. I am not dispensing medical advice here, just sharing my preferences!

Reiki and me

I want to shout it from the digital rooftops  Reiki works!! I hope that I grabbed your attention dear readers, because you are in for a treat.

First I will share some background: I really am open-minded when it comes to alternative healing. I prefer it to Western Medicine because I abhor tests and am allergic and/or have lousy reactions to many medications. While I am lucky to have found some wonderful doctors who really care about me, their methods don’t seem natural. I am not dispensing medical advice here, just sharing my preferences! I was a fan of chiropractic medicine long before it became popular in the US. I learned so much about the body and healing from my amazing chiropractor over the years. Acupuncture – yes, I am also a huge fan. After I came to terms with my fear of those needles, I enjoyed the sessions and experienced some improvement in my overall well-being. I also adore massage and it has been an incredible stress reducer. It has also facilitated my recovery from several injuries I have sustained through the years. I was once quite accident prone, so I know where to go when I want less pain and more mobility. I also believe in the efficacy of energy/body work because I tend to live in my head ( like a good introvert). These modalities  can cut  right through the inner noise and transform the root causes of dis-ease or dis-comfort.

So back in the Eighties when an ex-boyfriend who I was seeing again ( yea you have read about him before lol!) told me he was trained in Reiki, I agreed to check it out. I trusted him and he is quite talented in many ways, but nothing happened! I figured that either I was blocking it somehow or he needed to get more training. Many years later I was invited to participate in Reiki shares , where people practiced on me for fun. It was pleasant enough and the people seemed to be credible, but nothing happened. I wondered if Reiki was a true healing modality or if some unknown issues were interfering with this process.

Fast forward to early 2013. I belong to two dream groups, one of which I helped create with two other women. One of those women is a Reiki healer. I really like this woman and she always discusses her enthusiasm for Reiki and her success stories. In my other dream group, the leader told us about this amazing psychic she met who was also an energy healer. She told us that she practices Reiki and has really helped her with some health problems. I began attending some of this woman’s gatherings and we are now collaborating on a project together. Around the same time I started this blog and began following Heidi of The Eagle and The Serpent. I found her blog only a few weeks into this  blogging adventure and became a fan. She is a Reiki master and blogs about all types of spiritual matters. We connected easily and supported one another. I have been around long enough to realize that when you discover a pattern, you should pay attention and take some action. I was really curious about Reiki and wanted to try it again. When Heidi decided to start her business I asked her about a trade and fortunately she agreed!

I had my one hour session one week ago and wanted to see what developed before preparing this post. I can honestly say this woman is gifted! I laid down and concentrated on my breathing, lying on my back. Almost immediately Dexter my trusty sidekick followed suit and plopped on the bed. I decided to let him stay and share the energy. Within seconds , I felt waves of heat move up my toes , then continue up my feet, ankles, calves, and then rest on my knees. This sensation was very soothing and unexpected. I have experienced coolness on my lower legs and feet for many years. I can never feel warm enough. I often sleep with socks on, and sometimes forget they are on during the night because my feet are so cold! This sensation of heat coursing through my feet symbolized a correction of an imbalance, a replacement of what had been missing for years. Imagine being bald and growing  back a full head of hair! Imagine needing glasses  and having your vision restored to 20/20! Imagine gray hair returning to your natural color! This healing was a restoration.

After that I noticed the scent of oranges and cinnamon. Then I visualized an orange and a bowl of fruit.

Later I noticed some pressure on  the top of my head and some twitching from my left leg and left arm. Towards the end  while I gazed into my cat’s eyes, feelings of peace and profound gratitude came over me! I wondered  about the miracle that I can receive this blessing all the way from Great Britain. I was overtaken by  the presence of overwhelming love  and tears streamed down my face.

During the past week I have noticed improved sleep, better dream recall, some  bouts of fatigue, increased energy levels, and more sustained peace. The heat sensations came on intermittently for about 5 days. I feel that my mood has brightened with more spontaneous singing and dancing and overall vitality. In certain ways I feel younger and more vibrant.

I do not quite understand the dynamics involved , except that Reiki is a universal energy that positively impacts both the healer and recipient. This technique does not require that you be in the same locale as the Reiki master to benefit from the healing. The energy  apparently directs itself to where it is needed and works on issues even when they have not been directly mentioned prior to the session.

I highly recommend Heidi and invite you all to visit her blog http://reikiserpent.wordpress.com/ for more info. If she can work magic on me, imagine what she can do for you.

Thank you Heidi for taking such excellent care of me!
