Recently, I was given the book, “Just How To Wake The Solar Plexus” by Elizabeth Towne. The book was copyrighted in 1907 and published in 1926. I have only read this powerful 30 page book one time so far. But, I can tell you that I will read it again and again as I strive to flow with Elizabeth Towne’s words in perfect harmony.

There is so much wisdom in this little book and it offers so many useful tips for wellness. The author was obviously way ahead of her time while still being at the right place at the right moment. I have not read any of her others books yet. But, that will change in the near future. The copy I have is timeless.

I knew I was reading something special when I finally picked it up. The first chapter is, “I am the Sun of God.” Elizabeth had my attention. My goal is not to even possibly attempt to post an analysis of the book here in a short article. I’m incapable of doing that, but I will share the first paragraph of the first chapter with you.

“Do you desire above all things to live a serene, useful, successful life? Do you want to get out of the petty limitations of conventionality? Out of pain and sin and sickness? Away from the small hurts of every-day living? Do you really want to get away from them? Are you willing to work out the salvation that is in you?” Elizabeth Towne.

Here’s another Elizabeth Towne quote from page 4. “But one day it suddenly flashed across my mind that I AM THE SUN OF GOD!” She discusses in great detail how to heal the Solar Plexus and how to keep it strong – the way it should be. She describes with great clarity how our Solar Plexus is the sun found inside the soul of every man and woman.

When we finally discover the power of the Solar Plexus (SP), we come to understand the importance of sending out light and positive energy to keep the SP beaming, minus all fear and worry. Reiki helps us keep our Solar Plexus strong as it opens us up to the healing energy that always delivers what is for our highest good. Healing a wounded Solar Plexus will always be for our highest good.

If you are a Reiki practitioner, I have a favor to ask of you. It’s a simple request, but one that is coming from my heart to yours. Please keep that positive energy flowing. Just like I always say in my Reiki classes, “We need you! The world needs you!” Your positive energy is needed more than ever. If you are not a Reiki practitioner, that’s okay. Please join us with your prayers and acts of kindess.

Reiki is a global phenomenon and is being used for self-healing, healing others and the world. Light workers everywhere are doing their part, and their efforts are making a difference. Reiki is love, and just like the song says, “What the world needs now is love sweet love.” Truer words were never spoken.

When our Solar Plexus is beaming like The Sun Within, we can make a difference in our collective consciousness. “We’re all in this together” has been so overused that the marketing efforts are just tired. But, we are all connected and our thoughts and emotions have ripple effects that are much stronger than we probably realize. Everything is energy, including the sun within. Shine your light. The World needs You.
