The Reason for Reiki

Slide1

Why Reiki?  Why do energy work?  What is energy work?  If you are still not sure if Reiki energy work is for you, or how often you need to have a session, then please read on!

Energy is everything.  Everyone and everything is made of energy.  Energy makes your heart beat, your mind work, your body function.  Energy helps us think, it helps us move.  Energy is collected, shared, and released within our bodies.  Our physical bodies, our mental bodies, our emotional bodies, our spiritual bodies, our astral bodies, our etheric bodies, and more!  Now we have all heard the term “emotional baggage”.  And, we don’t want to carry around that emotional baggage.  Well, how do you let it go? Many of us have not been taught how to let it go, to release that old emotional baggage, or emotional energy.  We also have mental baggage, physical baggage, spiritual baggage, etc.  This baggage, or old energy, hits us when we are triggered.  We feel hurt by someone else’s words or actions.  We feel angered when someone does “fill in the blank” to us.  We tell ourselves “it’s because I’m old” or “it’s happening because it’s in my genes, my family history, etc.”  Well, do you really want to carry around your own baggage, let alone that of your family’s and past life families’??? Reiki energy work can help with so many things, including stress relief (baggage), helping to calm us down (stems from old baggage), helps us to think more clearly (old baggage), helps us to be more energized (old baggage weighs us down) and more. The Reason for Reiki is to release old baggage.

We have layers upon layers of old energy (old baggage) that we have collected from this lifetime, this particular ancestral line in this lifetime, plus former lifetimes and former ancestral lines!  We have also been exposed in all our lifetimes to multiple layers of collecting, sharing and keeping old baggage!  All of these layers need to come off of us, to help us heal.  We need to release these layers.  When we start energy work, the layers we can release, allow more layers to rise up for release the next time, and then more layers to rise up for release the next time, and so on and so on.

Have you ever judged someone else? Have you been judged?  Those are old layers of energy that need to be released.  We are judging something in them we do not like in ourselves, yet we may not realize what that trait is within us.  We just judge.  And, when we are judged, we can become angry, sad, annoyed, frustrated, etc.  Well, those are old layers of baggage we need to release.  The more we have judged or have been judged that creates emotional baggage, or mental baggage, or spiritual baggage, and so on, the more we have to release! An energy worker can help you discover triggers to your old baggage, and help you release them.

Have you ever thought you have forgiven someone for something, only to find out that they are still pissing you off when you think about them or the situation?  Or a smilier situation comes up? Or that you still feel hurt?  Or perhaps a new person in your life pushes that old button, or causes an old wound to pop back up.  This is old baggage leading to new baggage. It’s old wounds coming back up to our consciousness because they want to be released. Or in other words, we have been carrying that old energy within us, as we have not truly let it go.  OR, there are more layers from the past and past lives and past ancestral lines of energy that are coming up for release that are similar to that same emotion, feeling, etc!  More layers to be released.  Anything that triggers you in any way, needs to be released.  If you feel someone has done something to you, then something needs to be released.  Life isn’t happening to us, it’s happening for us.  It’s happening to help us see the baggage within us we need to let go.

I have recently been told by a seer (because I am also full of energy layers that need to be released, therefore, I do energy work on myself, and also go to others for energy work on myself) that I have had 18,000 lives.  18,000!  That is A LOT of lives.  And A LOT of energy.  I have always believed in our souls having multiple lives to learn and grow.  During all these lives, we make karma.  Karma needs to be released. Karma is old baggage.  Karma is old energy that has patterned our thoughts, opinions and belief systems, along with societal understandings and religious beliefs of each and every lifetime.   We have been programmed to believe certain things, and when we open up to new things, or are born into human form with others, we have been programmed to those ideas.  All of these ideas are energy, swirling around in our heads, bodies, and energy system.  Our entire energy system.   When I mentioned we have been led to believe “it’s because of my family history”, we can change that mindset!  We can change that energy!  Our physical bodies have manifested those beliefs, either in this lifetime or other lifetimes.  (Akashic Records Work, is also a form of energy work, and I have learned a great deal of my old lifetimes for myself and others, which can help us in this healing journey immensely! But, back to Reiki….).  For  instance, if you believe you have asthma because your “insert family member(s)” had it, then that is a programmed belief that has manifested itself. Because you have been taught to truly believe it.  Guess what?  You don’t have to believe it! I know, that is a mind blower. Scientists are always telling us what to believe, as are “experts” in any chosen field because of “research”.  Well, let me tell you, for every one person who has research to back up Idea #1, there is someone else to back up Idea #2, which is completely different than Idea #1. Take the courtroom, for example.  We have all seen and/or heard of the experts who testify.  Well, many experts are paid to testify for either the defense or the defendant. They are paid for their “expert opinion”, while the other side has their “expert” with their “expert opinion”, which contradicts the other “expert”.  Everyone has an opinion, thought or belief, which can be contradicted by another. It’s how we see the world and decipher the information provided to us. It’s our perception of the world based on our experiences which define our opinions, beliefs and thoughts. It’s the programs repeated over and over that define how we see the world.  We can break these programs to open our eyes to a whole new way of being. We do this by grasping new beliefs by releasing old ones (energy or baggage).

So, how do you grasp that you don’t have to believe something, that you don’t have to manifest asthma?  You start doing energy work, and continue doing energy work to release the thought pattern, along with the WHY of the asthma or some other issue you are currently dealing with or working through or hoping to heal. Working with someone else is always beneficial, as they can see things we might not be able to within ourselves, or ask the right questions, etc. When we understand the WHY, and understand where it came from, and feel it, then release it, we can heal ourselves.   We can define a new perception and reality for ourselves.

The WHY of the manifestation is part of what energy works entails as well.  Each dis-ease, illness, injury, etc, is a physical manifestation of old programmed beliefs, understandings and thoughts. And, those old programmed beliefs, understandings and thoughts are multi-layered.  Each physical issue, has a cause.  For example, my spine has curves in it, where the “Normal” spine does not.  It curves differently in between my shoulder blades, where the heart chakra resides. Heart chakra has to do with many different things, including love of self, love of others, and others’ love for us. I have discovered, in this lifetime, I have had issues trusting love of others.  Of being left out or forgotten. Of not being truly loved for who I am. Therefore, I created someone that I thought others would love.  I became a people pleaser.  I was nice to be liked, or loved. I avoided conflict as much as humanly possible because I thought it meant others would not like or love me, as how could I be nice in conflict? If I showed my true feelings, they would not love me, because I was not nice. I learned from past lives (Akashic Records) that I had a lot of lives where I was neglected, abandoned, abused, etc, by those who SHOULD have loved me. I carried that hurt and pain of not being loved in my heart chakra for many, many, many lifetimes. Hit the repeat button. Another life, similar issues. And, in this life it manifested physically in my spine.  This physical manifestation was my sign that I needed to heal and release all of the layers of past lives of being hurt by loved ones in very those ways.  I was also blessed with this lifetime with unconditional love of my parents. However, this same story played out in the relationships I attracted.  People who were not really emotional available for one reason or another.  This was all unconscious and subconscious patterned energy baggage.  We attract what we are.  It’s the Law of Energy.  Like attracts like.  So, I attracted those who also had some type of emotional abuse in their life or past lives which they needed to release and heal. Again in this lifetime, it manifested in my initiate relationships.  And, those people were attracted to the person they thought I was, the one I was projecting so they would like me, and when they saw a side of me they didn’t like, well, let’s say that’s when the conflicts arose, causing the end of the relationship.  There are multiple layers of energy issues associated with each of these relationships, in addition to the one I’ve mentioned.  However, it is important to understand the incredible amount of layers of baggage with that ONE issue, let alone, layering all the issues on top of each other.  Working with a Reiki Master, and doing energy work, helps us to understand the WHYs, whether they are physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.

So, I’m sure you are starting to feel a bit suffocated with all of this layering!  I understand. The healing journey and energy work is a long journey. But it is a journey worth doing!  I know this as my belief, because I feel better! I feel lighter and more loved for who I am, and not because I’m just being nice. And, know this: The more often you work on yourself with Reiki energy and other forms of energy work, the more layers you can release, and the lighter you begin to feel as you start connecting all the dots of the WHYs and knowing you do not have to carry all that baggage around.  You have the power to release as many layers as you are ready to let go. You have the power to do the work on yourself to heal. You have the power to choose to heal and the strength to do it. You have the power to heal you! Energy workers are here to help you heal yourself. It’s why I do what I do. Healing is part of our soul purpose, part of why we manifested as a human within the family we did, the issues we have and all our situations and experiences. These are the lessons we (our souls) have chosen to learn, the issues we (our souls) have chosen to release and heal and the experiences we (our souls) want. By simply deciding to be open to letting go of the old, you have started the journey. It’s time to keep going!

I have worked on myself and had multiple energy others work with me, and continue to do so.  The more often you do it, the more you will become your authentic self.  Our authentic selves are not our ego. Ego is our personality and is currently leading most of our lives from our old baggage.  Release the ego issues, and then the ego no longer runs our lives. Our souls start to lead our lives.  Our authentic selves are our souls.  Our souls are here for this healing work and this journey.  Our souls are pure Divine energy of Light.  Divine Energy of Light includes Unconditional Love.  It includes pure unconditional Joy, Peace, Harmony and Bliss. If we do not do healing energy work in this lifetime, well, that just gives you even more baggage to deal with the next time around. Similar to my relationships in this lifetime…each one was more challenging than the previous one, as my soul was really trying to get my attention to heal those issues! Once I truly awakened, I decided all of this baggage within me, some mine, and some not, was too heavy to carry around any more.  Are you ready to stop carrying all your old baggage?  Releasing the old baggage, allows us to be soul powered.  It allows us to start living in Divine Unconditional Love, Joy, Peace, Harmony and Bliss.  Does that sound good to you? Are you ready to awaken and “Become Soulfully Empowered”?

Beliefs Create Reality

Everything in your life is the reality you created by your beliefs & experiences.

Slide1

 

 

If you wish to change your reality, change your beliefs. Changing our beliefs involves investigating why we have those beliefs and where they began. Opening yourself up to other beliefs from different people, cultures and countries helps you understand other beliefs to see if that belief resonates with you. Changing your beliefs incorporates questioning the similarities and differences of your beliefs and another’s.

Changing your reality is looking at your experiences in a different way.

If you believe a situation was intended to be harmful, it will be. If you believe that same situation was intended to be helpful, it will be. It truly comes down to what you choose to believe which creates your reality in each situation you encounter. I choose to believe there is an opportunity to learn all the time for growth and wisdom. Lessons are everywhere, delivered in many different ways from many different situations.

For instance, last week there was a number of people outside my apartment making quite a bit of noise.  This happened late in the night, and it woke me up.  I immediately thought how rude and inconsiderate they were being, and I let it bother me and keep me awake until they stopped. My peace was disrupted. Interestingly, earlier in the night, we also experienced rain, thunder and lightening, which also woke me up.  When the weather woke me up, I didn’t think “how rude of Mother Nature to wake me up in the middle of the night.”  Instead I thought, “Oh, it’s storming. I love the sounds of rain and thunder.”  I allowed myself to go back to sleep with the sounds of the storm. My peace was not disrupted.

Since I believe the storm was soothing sounds, I was able to go back to sleep. With the people, my belief was they were being rude and inconsiderate, as people should be quiet at night.  Looking back, I didn’t think Mother Nature was waking me up on purpose. But my belief stemmed from my experience growing up and being told to stay quiet at night. Therefore, I blamed the people that I couldn’t fall back asleep.  Was it their fault? Were they really purposely waking me up any more than Mother Nature was?  Of course not.  They were having fun. Both times I woke up it was due to noise.  I labeled the noises as different due to my beliefs and experiences growing up.  I was able to remove my focus of staying awake with Mother Nature, to remain at peace for sleeping. I could have chosen to do the same with the human noises, thus changing my belief that these people were keeping me awake, thus changing my experience and reality of that night.  I still believe it is best for me to stay quiet at night to be in rhythm with nature and I would hope others feel the same way. But, I do not have control over others, just myself. I can choose not to be affected when other people are not being quiet, which creates a different reality for me. It allows me to keep my peace & quiet in my mind. That is the lesson. I also find it very interesting, helpful & coincidental that both Mother Nature and Human Nature woke me that night.

This lesson can be applied to many situations in life. It is important to ask yourself what you are choosing as your reality based on your beliefs and experiences, especially when something or someone is upsetting you in some fashion. Discovering and understanding the differences and similarities of beliefs can lead you into a new reality. From our views of society to religion to government and beyond, recognizing how our beliefs and experiences have shaped our lives can allow us to consider other beliefs and experiences. Truly learning the why behind our behaviors can bring us wisdom and lead us to a different choice, thus transforming our reality to more love, peace & joy.

May you view life as learning lessons for growth & wisdom.

Namaste!

Mindfulness & Enlightenment

Slide1There is a recurring theme I notice in life.  It’s that we are not mindful as we go through our days. Once,  while leading one of my yoga classes, we were doing Moon Salutations for the New Moon. I like to mix things up after a few rounds, and sometimes each round for both focus and mindfulness. This particular class had three individuals who have done this flow with me many times. What occurred, was all three of them anticipated a pose I included in the last round, and none of them heard me lead them into a different pose at that point. All three of them are in Crescent Moon pose, and I’m in Warrior II pose. I joked that their Warriors all needed some work…and all three of them looked at me at the same time. They realized what they had done. They weren’t paying attention and being in the moment. This was an “Aha” moment. This is just one incident, but many occur to each of us on a daily basis.

Mindfulness allows us to focus on ourselves and can help us reach for enlightenment.

Mindfulness is being in your present moment without anticipating what is coming next. It’s allowing what comes next to flow to you. So many people tend to go through the motions without being attentive to the situation. Driving is a perfect example. While driving, many are paying more attention to distractions such as the radio, the cell phone, other car occupants, or thinking about their “to-do” list. Yet, driving requires mindfulness. If you aren’t paying attention to driving, you might hit another car, or you might run a stop sign, or worse, hurt yourself or someone else.  Another example is when we are rushing through a chore or are running late, and we aren’t paying attention to what we are doing, and we either fall down, run into something or harm ourselves in some other way.  It’s important to slow down, breathe and be very aware of what you are doing to avoid causing harm, but also to learn something new.

Mindfulness is many things, as well. It’s being attentive to each moment, action, feeling and thought. It’s ensuring you know exactly what is happening around you and within you, without judging or comparing. It’s being completely aware and focused in the present moment without worrying about the future or repeating your past. Mindfulness is not allowing yourself to be distracted by outside forces, people, events or situations. Mindfulness allows you to focus solely on you and the purpose at hand. Mindfulness can then lead to enlightenment as you recognize what is happening within you. You can then be aware of a feeling that crops up repeatedly or a situation and you can attend to it. I’ve recently recognized through a healing session I had with my healing friends that I have hips which are rounded in. I’ve been to chiropractors and not one ever mentioned this to me. Perhaps I wasn’t ready for that message yet.  But, the hips have been causing my lower back tightness, and this area, front & back, is the sacral chakra. The message for me was very profound physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I learned  something that I didn’t realize I was still carrying around for the past two decades or so…from previous lifetimes! Being mindful of my hips, and connecting this to the message has allowed me to release some cords for healing….mind, body & soul…very enlightening.

May you practice mindfulness in your life and reach for your enlightened self!

Namaste! Espavo!

Be Fully Alive

Slide1

 

Viewing each day as a day to be fully alive in the moment you have allows you to experience every moment to truly Be.

The new moon today is a black moon, so named because it’s the second one in March.  And, it’s in Aries, which is the beginning of the astrological year. A new beginning.  A new day, a new moon and a new year.  For the second time this year, as the first was in January with the calendar new year.

So, today, let’s use this day to begin seeing every day as a new beginning to fully be alive.

If you choose to rest, be fully alive in resting.  If you choose to dance, be fully alive in dancing. If you choose to go for a walk, be fully alive in your walk.  Be fully alive in every experience to get the most out of your life.

How do we be fully alive?  To be fully alive, dive into your experience with gusto.  Be in the moment in mindfulness, being completely conscious of every feeling you have…each touch of a leaf or the wind, each sound you hear, each sight you see, each feeling which arises and each taste you may have.  Contemplate all these senses, and sit with (or walk with or lay with) how that makes you feel.  Then be aware of that energy radiating within you and imagine that energy radiating outward.  I love to do this with trees.  There is such a loving energy in trees.  Walk up to a tree, and touch it’s bark, the leaves and perhaps the roots.  Imagine loving energy pouring from your heart center to the tree.  Then be quiet, contemplate the love, and you will feel the love coming back from the tree.  Practice this with trees, flowers, animals, insects.  The more you practice this, the more mindful and conscious of all things you will be. This is using our senses to be fully alive.

When you have become accustomed to the basic senses and the feelings of this aliveness in you and around you, you can then begin to bring your intuitive senses into the mix. Start paying attention to the sounds and rhythms you feel or hear which aren’t noticeable from the main physical senses. Are you able to hear the music of nature and the universe?  What is it telling you?  Are you maybe able to see a bright light or shadow where there isn’t one seen with the naked eye? Are you sensing someone thinking of you only to run into them or receive a call from them? These are your intuitive senses become stronger, like the physical ones. You are becoming even more fully alive. You become aware of all the love & light around you and are able to send it out and feel it come back to you. Sending love & light to all, all will send love & light to you.  This is being fully alive. Every day…

Every day is a new beginning;

a time to learn and grown;

a day to discover and explore;

a day to laugh and dance;

a time to be quiet and listen;

a day to send out love & light;

a day to be fully alive.

Namaste!

While practicing yoga lately, I’ve noticed my calves are very tight. I’ve been ensuring I warm them up and stretch them out. I have, also, been asking “what am I carrying around in my calves which I cannot release?” I believe I have found the answer, which sits “right” within my heart chakra. Another “Aha” moment! I enlightened myself to something that I didn’t realize I was still carrying around for the past 22 years! All of us are still learning and growing, after all!
May you practice mindfulness in your life and reach for your enlightened self!

Namaste!
