Tonight, I went to my granddaughter’s talent show. This kid has some serious talent. She’s fearless, gifted, spiritually aware and always learning new things. She’s a natural at Irish Dancing. But, she will be a natural at whatever she decides to pursue during her life. We recently talked about the space program. She would make a great astronaut.
She says she wants to be an artist when she grows up. She already is an artist. I was blown away by a recent map that she had drawn for my wife, to show her how to get to her house. At 7 years old, she is an ideal candidate for our upcoming Reiki for Kids Classes. She coined the phrase, “Papa’s Hand Medicine” for Reiki. Riley Baird is kind of a big deal around here.
Watching all of these kids perform tonight was so entertaining. Kids are awesome. They were fearless, uninhibited, anxious to share their talents and not afraid of the big stage – in their school, amongst their peers and family members. It takes guts to perform in front of that crowd.
I have had the honor of working on a number of kids who have seen tremendous results from Reiki. Kids today are under so much stress. Reiki helps them better cope with the sometimes daunting challenges of just growing up. We will share the importance of self-healing during the classes. We will encourage them to help others with Reiki as well. But, our primary focus will be on self-healing.
Yesterday, I spoke with a Reiki Master Teacher who I respect a great deal. She has taught Reiki classes for kids and shared her wisdom with me. She gave me some great ideas. Thank You Chellie Kammermeyer! I have some cool things in the works.
We will hold Reiki for Kids classes at 14 Hands Ranch. The students will have the opportunity to share Reiki with some of the rescued animals who live at “The Ranch.” They’ll also have plenty of time to use the energy for self-healing. Now, more than ever, it’s important that kids love themselves and believe in their dreams. These classes will help facilitate that process. Our first one will probably be held in July. Please stay tuned. In the meantime, If you have kids, give them a big hug tonight and tell them how much you love them.
