I’m writing this two weeks after my Dad passed away. This life changing event showed me yet again that healing love is the most powerful force in the world. I watched our family heal together. Powerful stuff.
Today, I called a client and explained why I had been out of touch. She shared her sincerest sympathies and said, “Life goes on. When my dad died, I wanted to say, ‘Hey wait a minute! Stop for just a minute.’ But, life goes on.” She’s right. Life goes on.
What helped me heal during this challenging time was the opportunity to help others heal first. My whole outlook on life changed after Reiki found me 6 ½ years ago. The two Reiki precepts that stopped me in my tracks are, “Just for today, do not worry,” and “Just for today, do not anger.” Last week there were all kinds of reasons to worry and just as many reasons to get angry. But, I didn’t spend my time there. It’s just wasted energy. Instead, I focused on sharing love through my actions. There were things that happened that I didn’t see coming. And, I’m glad I was grounded, and able to roll with whatever was happening. I don’t use the words ‘life changing’ lightly. I was grateful for Reiki as it helped me stay focused and true to my higher self. I didn’t worry, and I never got angry.
“An Evening of Healing”
On Thursday, June 7th, I will present “An Evening of Healing” from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Full Moon Books & Event Center, 9106 West 6th Ave., Lakewood, www.fullmoonbooks.com. We’ll watch some short videos about my Reiki practice. Then, I will discuss my Reiki journey so far and why I walked away from corporate America to focus on healing full time.
The treatment table will be set up, and I’ll perform Reiki on a volunteer, discussing what is happening in the moment. This will be followed by “A Meditation for Healing & Gratitude.” I will be sharing Reiki’s energy during the meditation for anyone who would like to receive it. In addition, there will be healing attunements at the conclusion for anyone who would like one. Cost is only $10.
Reiki for Animals
Horses keep me pretty busy these days. They love Reiki, and I love working with them. This goes for dogs too. Animals receive Reiki with no resistance whatsoever. My two dogs let me know when they could use a little healing energy. Then, when they feel better, they let me know that too. A limping dog will walk better after receiving Reiki. I’ve seen it numerous times with dogs and horses after injuries, or just because they’re a little bit older, and have some aches and pains like all of us do.
Got Pain? Get Reiki!
I have been fortunate to treat so many of your friends and neighbors in our mountain community, in addition to people all over the world. Healing is the ultimate team effort. Together, my clients and I have eliminated or greatly reduced the pain associated with Fibromyalgia, Cancer, Insomnia, broken bones, dental issues, Retinitis Pigmentosa, sprains, migraines, PTSD, Carpal Tunnel, allergies, spinal issues, panic attacks, trauma, depression, bronchitis, flu and just about any ailment you can think of. When a person is open to receiving Reiki’s healing energy, the sky is the limit. Reiki heals physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I know “Colorado Serenity” has a long shelf life. Our new website, You Tube channel and other platforms like Instagram, should all be up and running by the time this copy of Serenity has been out for a couple of weeks, or maybe a little longer. But, either way, please watch for our new website and pay it a visit. We’ll share videos, photos, the latest wellness information, an event and treatment booking calendar as well as my blogs. I hope to see you on the 7th too. Be Well.
