How Reiki Develops Intuition

Transporting my Reiki stuff to a health fair.

In the summer of 2012, I sat on my floor meditating when a voice seemed to fill the silence. It simply said, very clearly, “Reiki.”  I thought, what? I had heard of Reiki but didn’t know very much about it. I made the decision to listen to the voice and promptly began researching Reiki programs in the area. I found one presenting an open house in the coming weeks and registered. Since that time, I have completed Reiki levels one and two. Besides the obvious health benefit of relaxing the body, the most important lesson that I am learning from this energy healing system, is that of becoming more in tune with intuition and listening to that small inner voice that only has your best interest at heart.

Lock eyes with the Sun and spark your inner fire.
Lock eyes with the Sun…

As I sat on a stump in the valley and hummed the ohm, my spirit told me to stand up and look into the Sun. Once my eyes adjusted, rainbow rings radiated from its exquisite form.  I began to feel warm. I discovered that if you lock eyes with the Sun, He will spark your inner fire.

Random acts of love!
Random acts of love!

This picture was sent to me by a dear friend visiting D.C. from London.  My friend said that she has been seeing covert love and healing messages in this country and in hers more and more lately.  I recently read a tweet saying, there is no such thing as “conditional love”, there is only love.  Let’s make the evolutionary leap to a heartcentric way of life and use love energy as our starting point for all things.  Love is the way!

How I Keep Menses Sacred

Waterfall

For most of my life, because my menses was never regular, and honestly because I wasn’t very aware of my body, I was unable to connect some of the turmoil occurring in my life to my unnatural menstrual cycle.  It wasn’t until my husband (at the time boyfriend) began asking all sorts of questions about the female body and its processes that I gave it any serious thought.  In fact he was the one, after watching a morning news show on menstruation, who informed me that I was indeed not “crazy” but just under the influence of hormones.  Once I began getting serious about my spiritual journey and more in tune with my body, I started to research the sacredness of this natural ritual and why I should protect myself at this very vulnerable time of the month.

Ruby in Prayer Room

I was thrilled about experiencing Seattle for the first time.  While exploring the underground section of Pike Place Market, we made our way to a small crystal store called Gem Heaven.  I’d done my due diligence before we arrived and had my mind-set on visiting several metaphysical and mystical stores in and around the market.  I enjoyed perusing the unique selection at Gem Heaven.  There was plenty to choose from and ooh-and-ah over in the tiny shop.  I purchased several crystals – one of them being a little ruby.
