The many people I work with have gotten used to me using the word “blast” when I say things to them like, “I’ll send you another blast tonight.” The energy they receive from a Distance Reiki session is very powerful and indeed a blast of positive energy that helps them heal in body, mind and spirit.

For the last couple of weeks the devastating updates on war and man’s vicious inhumanity to his fellow man has brought me to my knees. Neighborhoods, children’s hospitals and nuclear power plants are being bombed as more and more lives are destroyed. Just like the old song asked, “War! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again!” Evil is evil.

But, Love is Love, and is still the most powerful force in the world – always has been and always will be. The stories of courage and love coming from the war zone also move me to tears. As the bombs continue to fall, I send blasts of Distance Reiki to the area as I visualize drops of Holy Fire rain cleansing the ravaged land. Being blessed with the gift of Distance Reiki, I have been able to do my small part by sending Love to the world instead of going into a funk triggered by the onslaught of horrific images that fill my screens.

I have been on a break from social media during this time as I needed to just walk away from some of the noise that is fueled with so much fear and worry. Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki’s Founder, asked us to avoid fear and worry “just for today.” In order to ensure that I am on my ‘A Game,’ I need to spend more time on self-care and less time reading the latest apocalyptic updates. “Just for today, I will not worry and I will not anger.” When I feel my best, the sky is the limit and my blasts of Reiki are even more powerful as I flex my spiritual muscles by tuning into a higher vibration with heart and soul.

Reiki practitioners need to be aware of world events so that we can make the best use of our Distance Reiki efforts. There will never be a shortage of places to send the healing energy. Today, I ask all of my students and fellow Reiki practitioners to join me in stepping up our self-care efforts so that we are at our very best when sending a blast of Reiki to the world. Our commitment is to healing the world one soul at a time and there is great strength in numbers. Thank you for helping us during these difficult times. Your efforts are so appreciated and needed.

If you would like to join the Sunrise Reiki Colorado Family, our next class is April 9-10. Please reach out to me with any questions by sending an email to Thank You.
