The Spiritual Shaman

Today I attended a religious service – a funeral – for an old acquaintance. She was the wife of the man who designed and built our house. I remember working with her as our house came together. She helped me choose colors, tiles, and bring our home to life with personality. I saw her as an artist, so I chose bright colors to wear in her honor.

The mass gathered at our old church down the street from us. Aside from changing a few words in the formulated responses easily pulled from my memory, the service was the same as many I’ve attended in the past. Yes, it’s been many years since I’ve chosen to attend formal Catholic services. However, I see myself to be even more spiritual as a Reiki Master and shaman than ever before.

The opening song, On Eagle’s Wings, provided the refrain for how I feel as a deeply spiritual being. The melody came easily to me, remembering more of the song verse-by-verse. Yet tears formed in my eyes, catching the words in my throat. Why? Was I emotional from the grief for her family?

“And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.” by Josh Groban

Upon reflecting further on these words that touched my heart and soul, I saw a connection that had been missing in my view of religious practice. What I knew in my head, but had briefly forgotten, is the fact that rites have deep shamanic roots. We draw upon nature and the connection to animals, celestial bodies, the directions, and the forces of the unseen for spiritual nourishment.

Raise You Up on Eagle’s Wings

golden-eagle-flying-wallpaperIn my shamanic practices, I frequently call upon brother eagle (in my case, Golden Eagle) to work with me for healing, supporting the transition of soul fragments my clients may present during a session. Brother eagle appears (in my inner vision), larger than anyone can imagine, able to easily carry the burdens and wounds held in darkness. The first time Golden Eagle appeared to me during a healing session I was surprised – and yet not surprised at all. The size amazed me. Unlike the physical body eagle maintains on earth, Spirit eagle has no limitations from any of our perceptions, including size or the ability to assist in healing. Eagle is one of Spirit’s (God’s) many forms to which I can relate. Its strength, keen “seeing”, and great ancient wisdom radiate the light of Spirit, penetrating into infinity as eagle carries away all that anyone is willing to release and heal.

Breath of Dawn

Are there any words more beautiful than those? Dawn’s beginning in the east signifies new life – one free of the burdens of a physical body. Breath is life. We inhale upon physical birth, and exhale upon death or the release of the soul from the physical limitations of the body. With each breath we honor Spirit within. Conscious breathing – inhaling and exhaling – provides the intention of connecting to God on an infinite level. Imagine the infinity symbol. Effortlessly moving in a figure-eight pattern, infinite breath enters and leaves, mingling with the essence of humanity. The breath of dawn is the Creator that manifests in all life – coming and going, so to speak. Though humans may physically stop inhaling and exhaling, the breath of dawn is constant. It’s my privilege to connect with and honor the breath of dawn each day as a ritual in my practice.

Shine Like the Sun

The truth is that we all shine like the sun in our original, spiritual form. The spiritual light (like the sun) radiates original medicine – the expression of who we are, our gifts and talents, as well as the chosen path in life. What keeps people from expressing that light is that, for many people, they’ve forgotten who they are. The traumas and burdens of the physical world penetrate deeply into the known senses – hearing, tasting, smelling, touching, and seeing what seems real in the moment. These perceptions feel so real that they mask the more innate perceptions of the intuitive senses with which we are all born. These intuitive senses connect humans to God effortlessly. For some, it’s through dreams or day-dreaming. For others, it feels more like a sense of “knowing” or a gut-feeling. These senses are the manifestation of remembering that we are like the sun, filled with radiant light. I consider shining like the sun a journey of remembering, and an honor to be a lighthouse (“Lightworker”) for others.

Held in the Palm of His Hand

Sacred Space, the healing, nurturing environment created through the work of hands and intentions, offers the ultimate experience for healing. So often people think of death as an ending to life. However, in my years of practice, I’ve discovered that the experiences we have in this lifetime are the illusion away from Source, away from the Palm of His Hand, and away from the Sacred Space of healing wisdom. In Reiki healing classes, palms become activated with intention, and a laying-on-of-hands ensues. Powerful healing energies that come from the Universe (Source, God, Spirit, etc.) flow through the crown, the heart, and out the palms. In our infancy as spiritual practitioners, we imitate using the Palms of God’s Hands. It’s the greatest complement to God to be more spiritual, for our spirituality increases not only in us, but also in God. As a Reiki Master and practicing, modern, universal shaman, I continuously hold the energy and intention of healing.

The Spiritual Shaman

Awakening is the opportunity to become fully aware of original medicine, accessing the desire to connect to a higher vibration or way of being in the world. Awakening means that the illusion fades as the veil that separates us from Source becomes thinner. The shamans and Lightworkers of the world assist humanity in remembering, connecting humans once again to humanity through healing, going into the darkness, and coming into the light once again. We access the power of All That Is in effortless Grace from the breath of the Divine, the Light of the Sun, and the healing wisdom of the many who’ve come before us.

The power of remembering becomes possible when eagle’s wings carry away the burdens and traumas weighing heavily on the soul. Though grief’s process requires that we remember our pain before we can heal, the breath of dawn reminds us that we are whole, vibrant beings of love and light already.

Choose your path.

Reclaiming Spiritual Power

red rocksThe red rocks of Sedona, Arizona stand as beacons in the high desert, emanating their calm stature as storehouses of power for the ones who seek them. Though I enjoy hiking “up”, I felt it was much more important for me on this visit to stay grounded. Thus, on a recent visit to Bell Rock I made a profound connection that guided me further than I imagined. Here’s a bit of my story of dis-empowerment and reclaiming my power.

Last week I visited a friend in Sedona, AZ with the intention of being with my friend, Lori (Raven’s Call) doing a little hiking around the red rocks, offering a “Healing Pain” workshop, connecting to spirit in profound ways, and receiving a little healing for myself . . . a list full of engaging experiences. As always, I grow from these encounters and come away with a little more than I expected.

sedona agateThe drive up to Sedona from the Phoenix airport became an hour longer than usual due to an accident on the highway ahead of us. However, finally I was delivered safely to my friend who was visiting a sister-friend in a nearby town. I felt instantly at ease and at home with Rebecca who teaches shamanic ways, offers spiritual retreats, and a vision she holds for the future. In fact, I know Rebecca from previous correspondences when I purchased a few beloved crystals from her. This time, I chose a black agate that nearly jumped out at me from a table of other stones. She immediately gifted me the stone as she remarked how just earlier that day she put it out from her personal collection. I felt an instant bond with this stone, and slept with it by my side for several nights as it blessed me with clear dreams.

While in Sedona, I did a healing session for a man who is experiencing an invasion of his personal power through his current illness. Without going into his personal details, we focused on cleansing and, in fact, purging his “stuff”. As I facilitated his healing, we worked together to reclaim his power and see his condition through a new lens. Finally, we felt we were finished and I immediately took the few minutes to cleanse and detach from all energies we encountered. It wasn’t enough for me, and the consequences I felt, though dis-empowering, were also a revelation for more to come.

The feeling of dis-empowerment subtly crept in. One instance after another, the cascade of “mistakes” flooded my field. To a casual observer, it might appear coincidental to have “stuff go wrong”. To an empath like myself, these energies were obviously striking blows to my core. Even after a late, short walk to Bell Rock as the sun sank behind the horizon I didn’t realize what was happening. I went to bed early, feeling drained and awkwardly defeated for no apparent reason. The new stone I adopted refused to be with me as I slept, and elected to keep a short distance instead.

Dreams of ceremony, balance, and rejuvenation crystallized in the night. I awoke early with a “cure” for my personal dis-empowered state. Quickly, I drew a hot bath with Epsom salts, adding frankincense essential oil to coconut oil, and infusing the bath water with it. Next, I filled a tall glass with water, adding my chakra crystal set along with a few drops of frankincense in the glass of water. Completely immersed in the sacred water, I ritually submerged, washed, and anointed myself with blessings. Finally, I drank the water held by the glass, and added the crystals to my bath water. Instantly I felt better for having taken the time, listening to my guides and dreams in order to reclaim my power.

Interestingly, the man for whom I did the healing session is also a powerful healer. He knows that his circumstances can cause such reactions as I experienced and claims I’m not alone for feeling as wiped out as I did. Yet, in a follow up session he had with another healer, he was obviously clearer, and brighter. (He says that “I’m a good healer”. :))

I believe it’s the foundational practices I intuitively have in place that protect me and keep me as strongly empowered as I am. I know when it’s important to ground, and not climb, for example. I’m not only sensitive to crystals and dreams, but I act on the messages I receive. I select which crystals to wear each day, and choose how I feel about my experiences. Sometimes stuff goes “wrong” . . . or does it really? Choosing to be empowered also means that you recognize when you feel dis-empowered. Take the time you need to perform the rituals that help you feel balanced, nurtured, and stronger for having done so.

tipiFinally, as I readied myself to leave Sedona, my friend remarked on our experiences of the week. You see, we built a tipi in her back yard which consumed much of our time and labor. She was almost apologetic for the time it took, but I reminded her how we created Sacred Space. That’s the final lesson for reclaiming your spiritual power. Creating Sacred Space comes first from within – inside your personal practices of cleansing and balancing. Then Sacred Space is supported by the one you create in your environment.

I invite you to recognize your personal power and reclaim it. How do you move in the world? What are the words you choose to speak? How do you feel about money, relationships, and sense of purpose? It all matters. Let me help you find your way. In-person sessions, Reiki classes and Online Courses for Embodied Spirit await you. I’d love to hear from you about your personal power and your journey. Reach out to me. I’m here.

Becoming a Spiritual Athlete

Athleticism – is it more about physical performance or mental acuity?

I never thought of myself as an athlete. Physically I seemed to lack the coordination and strength expected in my school’s program as I was growing up. I may have developed a skewed sense of what it really means to be an athlete. You see, the idea back then was all about physical fitness. President Kennedy’s program to firm up the soft (overweight and unfit) American reached my school, and my uninspired, nerdy image of myself. To me, physical fitness the way the school wanted me to become fit seemed overbearing, hard, regimented (military perhaps?) and not fun.

Today’s athletes know that physical performance is only part of becoming skilled at sports. There’s a spiritual and mental component that makes a great athlete. However, if you’re like me – maybe not so physically adept – you still hone your skills as a Spiritual Athlete.

Yes, I never considered myself an athlete. Somehow those physical skill-related genes missed me. The anxiety I felt for nearly every physical education class in elementary and middle school still haunts me. Well, not really. But I remember how I felt when we had to run, climb ropes, vault, and perform feats of strength and coordination. That wasn’t me. My physical skills were developed through the grace of ballet and dance. I also experienced great joy in riding my bike throughout the country back roads, generally undeveloped and serene with branches of maple and oak arching overhead.

Before I bought my own bike, I used my brother’s old red Schwinn. It was way too big for me and had that high cross bar that boys’ bikes had. It was the bike on which I took my first downhill adventure, when my feet barely reached the pedals. Tilting the bike sideways so I could get on, I straddled the bike tenuously. With one brother at my side keeping me steady, and another behind me pushing, I gained momentum and flew down the long, steep road beside our house. Narrow wheels and low handlebars didn’t provide much comfort, but I didn’t seem to mind – even as I crashed into someone’s yard at the bottom of the hill. I could do fast and straight, but not turns or braking yet. My deep dive into biking was thrilling and scary. I’ll never forget those memories. Though the hill was steep for a little kid with no traditional athletic skills, I can now see it was the perfect experience to launch me at the time.

I recalled these experiences recently when working with a client. Spirituality and athleticism have similarities. Anyone (and everyone) has an innate spiritual connection as well as abilities to move and use the physical body. The quality or depth of either one depends on insight, practice, alignment to your goals, and Grace – the acceptance and refinement of knowledge, virtues, and passion that results in effortless Being. I realized that my first attempts at riding the bike were clumsy at best. I could have given up, or even worse – I could have made my progress conditional on waiting for the “right” bike to come my way. However, the joy of riding outweighed any hesitations and I soon became more adept at turns, braking, and maneuvering (even without “holding on”).

As a spiritual athlete (a.k.a. Lightworker) you’ll be able to do the same. Though you might feel like you’re crashing at first, you’ll become proficient at finding your way through life, practicing skills of discernment, meditation, grounding, and receiving. You’ll have spirit working with you – one at your side to guide you and another for that gentle push to get you off to a good start.

You may tell yourself that the time isn’t right, you have too many obligations, not enough money, or don’t feel strong enough – whatever the reason – waiting for the perfect circumstances doesn’t usually happen. Spiritual growth can be uncomfortable – like when I crashed on my first trip down the hill. Waiting presents its own problems, too. Spiritually speaking, your guides are always beside you, tapping you on the shoulder and giving gentle nudges to help you grow into your greatness. Ignoring guidance could result in harsher physical consequences to get your attention. (That’s another story).

Starting with something that feels “way too big” has its merits. Bigger means you have something to grow into. You’ll have opportunities to discover what you enjoy most, where you want to go, and what you want to do. The first step always feels more difficult than the last. Making the connection, however, feels good – like when a baseball bat connects exactly right with the speed and contact with the ball. The faster I rode my bike, the more balance I had – that’s momentum. Spirituality is like that. The more you practice and integrate spiritual skills into your life, the easier it will become. I call it Effortless Spiritual Awareness.

Becoming a spiritual athlete can help you with every life skill.

You’ll be able to:

  • Make decisions more easily
  • Trust yourself
  • Feel better, stronger, and healthier
  • Develop your creativity
  • Open your heart to giving and receiving love
  • Grant forgiveness
  • Speak your truth
  • Gain insight and sensitivity
  • Connect with Ease and Grace to spirit

Chakra Balance Tool

What’s the first thing you do if you begin to lose your balance?

I never liked the feeling of falling, crashing to the sidewalk and experiencing the crunch of bones, joints, and, well, my sense of self. I know you understand what I mean. The truth is, we have too much experience with being off-balance – not just in the physical way of falling, but the emotional and spiritual way, too. Life happens. People (and animals) get sick. Friends move. Jobs change. Crises occur. That’s all part of the journey. But if you’re feeling off-balance for long, you might tend to stay that way. (I see it all too often!)

Hold on. Brace yourself. Prepare for the worst. In that split second before the fall, you reach out, trying to grasp something to support you. If you’re lucky, it works and you avoid the consequences. If you lose your balance and find yourself sitting on an icy sidewalk (as I did a few years ago), you hold on, brace yourself, and reach out for a hand up. What you do next really matters.

I’m the type of person who grabs onto lessons at every opportunity. Though after my second fall (yes, I fell twice in the same spot) I took extra precautions to make sure I wouldn’t fall again. I changed the type of shoes I was wearing to have extra traction, and walked on the other side of the street to avoid icy spots. However, I was sore and really put a lot of effort into self-care with massage and acupuncture, as well as yoga and stretching.

I had the nagging questions of WHY I fell, why it happened in the same place, and what was I supposed to be doing in my life. The fall came as a message from the universe, I felt, that somehow I needed to pay attention to being more balanced – in every way! If you think like that, too, and if a fall isn’t just a fall, then take the opportunity to go a little deeper.

The Chakra Balance Tool

chakra balance tool downloadChakras are energy centers in the body that move and spin. These energy centers are a direct expression of your soul as they manifest into physical form. If you’re feeling weak, injured, upset, stuck, or otherwise deficient in some way, it could be because you’re either blocking energy or leaking energy. Both blocking and leaking energy are often regulated, at least in part, by emotions, events, and perceptions. These topics can fill books. To make it easy, I’ll just skip to the solution.

The Chakra Balance Tool is designed to give you the power to heal yourself. You don’t have to be attuned to Reiki to use the tool and do the exercise, however, using Reiki amplifies the process. If you’re on my list already, you have a direct link to the tool in my newsletter. If not, just subscribe and I’ll be happy to send it to you.

 

Learn the Benefits of Sound Healing with Tuning Forks

We’re surrounded by sound, and yet, how much of the sound we hear and feel are actually beneficial and, well, HEALING? If you’re plugged in, what are you really plugged into? Chaos and disharmony in the form of sound waves have an effect on the body that interferes with growth, healing, and regeneration of healthy cells and tissues. How do we know which sounds are  disharmonious and which sounds benefit us? In addition, how do sounds HEAL? As a practitioner working with energy healing modalities, becoming attuned to healing frequencies can enhance and accelerate healing for you as well as your clients.

Healing Sounds

My favorite healing frequencies, the solfeggio 6-tone scale, show a mathematical relationship – an expression of harmony with which all living things resonate. Sound is measured in Hertz (Hz). In the table below, see if you can discover the numerical relationships between each of the solfeggio frequencies.

396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear

417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change

528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)

639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships

741 Hz – Expression/Solutions

852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

These harmonious frequencies can actually be seen (sound becomes visible) when various substances exposed to these sounds vibrate. The small crystals of salt or sugar, for example, begin to move and form patterns on a flat surface. Dr. Hans Jenny showed in a process he  called cymatics that pure tone vibrations create these beautiful patterns, not only in the lab, but also in nature. We see these patterns everywhere; the arrangement of petals in a flower, waves washing up on shore, the formation of coral reefs in response to whale songs, and many more. Chaotic or non-pure tone sounds elicit no patterns.

We can then relate the reformation of broken bones, the development of muscle tissue, and even the structure of DNA to the possibility that certain sounds heal. Though there’s much more to include in this short article about solfeggio frequencies, cymatics, and healing, I’d like to now suggest that experience is the best teacher. Yet, as we continue to be “plugged in” to electronic devices, we find ourselves not in-tune with the healing sounds of nature. Here’s where we, as healers and practitioners, can make a huge difference for not only ourselves but also for our clients. Bring on the tuning forks!

What are the Benefits of Using Tuning Forks as a Practice?

The Natural Therapies Certification Board offers accreditation for many healing modalities, including sound healing. As a stand-alone healing modality, a practitioner has the option to pursue training as a Vibrational Sound Practitioner with continuing education as a Vibrational Sound Teacher. In some states, CEUs may be accepted in the field of sound healing to apply toward re-licensing of other modalities such as body work. (Check with your licensing board for more information on what they accept for CEUs). Of course there are many benefits beyond certification. Here are a few:

  • Single-tone harmonious frequencies enhance the effectiveness of other healing modalities
  • Effortlessly integrate sound with Reiki, massage, hypnosis, etc.
  • Use as a stand-alone healing modality with superior effectiveness and client results
  • Increases uniqueness in your field
  • Helps raise your personal vibrational levels
  • Helps healing in your own etheric field
  • Helps create a sacred space
  • Supports energetic hygiene
  • Helps balance your inner vortex
  • Releases unseen blocks in the body
  • Heightens intuitive awareness and psychic abilities
  • Experience minimal to no strain on the physical body
  • Easy to learn with effective results
  • Creates a nice sound bath
  • Attunes you to go beyond the physical and energetic limitations of other modalities
  • Helps you work as a shepherd for transformation
  • Offers a unique method for targeted healing work
  • Optimizes wholeness on the physical, emotional and spiritual plains
  • Assists you in working with ease and grace
  • Effortlessly tap into higher realms of consciousness

The Art of Teaching Reiki

Reiki, hands-on and distance healing through the wisdom and training brought to us by Mikao Usui in 1922 has grown into a healing modality available to everyone. Receiving a Reiki attunement is a simple, yet sacred practice through which energy flows from the Divine, through the capable, intentional hands of the Reiki Master, to the willing recipient. In many ways, the process is very simple. Knowing what to do, which Reiki symbols to use, where, how, and when, complete the attunement process.

Is that all there is to doing Reiki?

Not really. The attunement process – becoming attuned to any level of Reiki, including Reiki Master – just opens the door for energy to flow. The next steps involve training and developing sensitivity to the feel of energy as well as intuitive guidance on how to use Reiki. These sensitivities and skills come with practice and mentoring, feedback on technique, and guidance on a vast number of situations new students may encounter.

What’s the difference between Reiki Master and Reiki Master Teacher?

Reiki Master is an intermediate level of training that gives the practitioner three Reiki symbols and the ability to perform Reiki attunements as well as healing, and self-attunements. Becoming attuned as Reiki Master is indeed an important step displaying a practitioner’s commitment to the practice and lifestyle of spiritual healing. Reiki Master is not and end, but rather a new beginning. Newly attuned Reiki Masters move into the world with new confidence and new direction, or sense of purpose. It’s truly wonderful!

Reiki Master Teacher is an art that has been vastly under-valued and overlooked as a necessary part of bringing more competent Reiki students into the world. Why? Learning how to DO Reiki is different from learning how to TEACH Reiki. Teaching involves a different set of skills; ways to demonstrate techniques, writing curriculum to meet the growing need for integrative skills, spiritual mentoring, coaching skills, personal energetic hygiene, and an understanding of the laws surrounding energy healing modalities are all a part of Reiki Master Teaching know-how.

Pre-Launch for Embodied Spirit Online Course

Embodied Spirit Pre-launch is accepting only 15 students for its initial enrollment – at a huge savings. Learn more about the Pre-launch, and join while there’s still space for you.

Here’s the story:

Early this year, in 2018, I added the Spiritual Mastery online class as an extension of the Healer’s Journey online webinar series. It became apparent to me that people loved it, yet the element of time became involved as an interesting factor. Spirit let me know that I could do better, that I could reach more people and inspire people to go beyond their current level of BE-ing.

Even though I loved the thought of creating something bigger, I didn’t know HOW I was going to do that. So, in the way in which I was guided, I rewrote a page on my website to reflect my intentions. You may have seen the Enrichment page called Harness Your Windhorse. It’s intended to hold the energy of creating a deeply honored ability of developing your intuition. (more on that in a bit).

Along the way, something MAGICAL happened. As I created the space for something special, I knew it would finally arise in the form of online classes. This solves the element of TIME for me and for everyone else, without compromising on quality. Here’s what happened.

I began writing my online course for Harness Your Windhorse, but clients and students kept coming to me with bigger questions:

Who am I?
Why am I here?
What’s my Soul’s Purpose?
How can I manifest everything I want?

Do these questions feel familiar to you?

As a result, I wrote an e-book that I’m giving to you FREE, as an introduction to WHAT’S POSSIBLE FOR YOU. Just click the link for Embodied Spirit for the free ebook.

The result of YOUR INQUIRIES and YOUR PRIORITIES made sense to me. I had to postpone writing Harness Your Windhorse to write the Embodied Spirit™ online curriculum.

What this means for you:

I’m announcing the Pre-Launch phase of Embodied Spirit™.

I’m accepting ONLY 15 people into the new curriculum for Embodied Spirit™. 

This is an exclusive offer, available only to the first 15 people who apply and register. After that, registration will be closed, and the extremely discounted offer will be unavailable.
Once registration opens again in a few months, there will be no discounted offer and the course will be available at full price. For more details, please see the Pre-Launch details.

I’d love to speak with you about your journey. Just give me a call or contact me here.

If You Want to Know Your Future

If you want to know what’s in store for you – what your future holds, do you ask a psychic?

Though that may be an obvious choice for some people, it’s not my go-to choice for revealing the mysteries of life. However, it seemed important to discuss this with a caller I had the other day. She was looking for a psychic who would give her clarity on her future.

Interesting. I love that people call me for such things. It gives me the opportunity to ask them what they really want, find out more about their life so far, and share with them a little about my philosophy and magic that could offer support and guidance for their needs. And yet . . . in the course of our discussion I felt her energy move away from me. I wasn’t telling her what she wanted to hear. I didn’t say “yes”, promise a fortune-telling experience, and ask for her credit card. That’s not in her best interest, and certainly not what I do as a psychic intuitive, Licensed Spiritual Healer.

But what about the future? How could she have understood what she really wanted to know?

Here are a few things I’ve learned over my many years as an intuitive healer:

  1. You made choices before you were born that you want to experience in this life. These experiences were chosen for various reasons including spiritual growth, playing a role for another soul, activating an aspect of your soul that needs illuminating, or to resolve a recurring pattern that has yet to be resolved.
  2. You are born unaware of these choices and the previous life’s information, traumas, pain, etc. This is the veil that shields you from TMI (too much information).
  3. Your Higher Self, the etheric part of you that manifests as a physical being in this 3rd dimension, offers wisdom through your dreams, meditative experiences, coincidences, “chance” meetings, omens, animal guides, and more.
  4. If you don’t “pay attention” to the guidance offered by your Higher Self, you’ll continue to be given opportunities, sometimes with harsh measures, if necessary. These harsher measures can take the form of uncomfortable experiences, injury, disease, etc.
  5. Following your guidance is easier than you think.

How to Know Your Future

Energy constantly changes. Our circumstances change as our choices change. Choices determine, to a great extent, the future. That may seem obvious, but let me elaborate. As you move along your life’s path, accepting jobs, moving from one location to another, developing friendships and relationships, etc., tap into your emotions around each situation and relationship. Does something feel off? Is there disenchantment with the beau? Do circumstances keep happening to mess up your day? If so, you’re probably – like your car – out of alignment. If you’re in alignment with your soul’s purpose and your future manifestation, you’ll feel good. You’ll know it. So, what’s the problem? This sounds like it would be easy to fix, and it would be except for one thing. You’re stuck in your head, trying to think things through.

Get Out of Your Head

We’re an ego-based culture rewarded for our ability to think and solve problems. Unfortunately, what we learned in school doesn’t teach us to tap into our intuitive skills. Developing your intuition is really the best way to know your future. You don’t really need a psychic to tell you that. However, learning these skills now – the innate skills you’ve forgotten – serve you well for your future.

Work with Me One-on-One

You’re intuitive, empathic, and wishing to move forward on your path. Have you considered talking to a Spiritual Healer? One of the biggest obstacles people face is that they feel like they’re alone. Nobody “gets” them. The people you know as family and friends don’t understand what you’re going through. Let me hear you say what you really want to express. Work with me in a coaching/mentorship opportunity. Discover Your Path.

Unconditional Forgiveness

Free ebook Intro Embodied SpiritThis morning I awoke at my usual time, sometime around 6:30 a.m., and chose to laze around in a sleepy state for a while. I wasn’t in a hurry to get up today because my husband’s schedule was a little different . . . just for today. He let me know that he’d walk Gracie this morning to free up time for me to do whatever. As the clock approached 7, I suddenly remembered that there’s a meditation time at my club I usually only am able to attend on Thursdays. With gusto I jumped out of bed, quickly got ready, grabbed my mat, water, and two crystals, and headed out the door.

A word about the two crystals, Quartz and Amber

Quartz point wand, featured in a recent post, expressed the aspect of the “unconditional”, an opportunity to connect to source in the spaces between the structure of molecules and the physical realm. (You can read about the Spirituality of Unconditional Source here.) This particular quartz point radiates deep understanding, a connection to information, strength and understanding.

The amber palm “stone” I’ve worked with for many years. Often, it helps release and remove negative energies, assisting in repair, especially where there has been injury. In a recent meditation with amber it reflected the concept of forgiveness to me. So, with these two crystals working together, I theorized the concept of unconditional forgiveness could be achieved.

Unconditional Forgiveness

I held amber to my heart and chose to place quartz in front of me. Almost immediately after settling in to my silent, meditative state, I felt my father’s energy come through. He looked young, in his 30’s perhaps. This would have been the age in which he left my mother, when I was only two years old.  My brothers, older than me, would have many more memories of him and the heart-ache he caused our family. Though my mother expressed many emotions and experiences around their time together and how he treated her and my brothers, I know it wasn’t easy. I was perhaps spared the experience of really knowing him.

In later years, when I was older, we did meet. We formed a somewhat courteous and very temporary acknowledgement of each other.  When he passed away, I felt nothing. I’d made no room in my heart for him based on the emotions and information from my family. Yet here I was, face-to-face with my father in his 30’s. I saw him as his soul expression in physical form, playing a role of the abusive, absent, angry, narcissistic, uncaring father. He only asked for my forgiveness in the heart-ache he caused me throughout my life. 

I admit I was surprised by this interaction. My father has not been on my mind. Yet, without further hesitation, I forgave him. In fact, seeing him in this way, forgiveness was an easy thing to do. I was surprised at how easy it flowed from my heart. (I almost missed the opportunity, I felt, if I’d stayed in bed this morning.)

The Physical Results of Forgiveness

Meditation class was followed on the hour by the regularly scheduled Joint Health class. As we moved our knees, hips, and shoulders around in all possible ways I felt a certain fluidity I hadn’t noticed before. Any discomfort I previously held in my right hip was gone. I sensed that I was well-oiled and even moved without tension in the area of my sacral chakra. It occurred to me that the act of unconditional forgiveness has immediately perceived benefits. In my mind, I know this. I practice gratitude, offer prayers, accept abundance, and say all the words that spiritual healers say. However, meeting my father’s spirit in meditation offered me a depth of understanding for which we always strive.

In my Embodied Spirit online course, this is part of Module 2, Truth. In Module 2 you have opportunities to intellectually examine where pain is held in the body. Then you free yourself from pain and burdens to move through darkness toward enlightenment. It doesn’t happen fast for everyone. Yet the journey itself is worth so much more.

Spiritual Leadership with Reiki

I was asked recently what it means to be a leader. As a spiritual leader, Reiki Master, Shaman, and a spiritual healer, I have little time to ponder leadership, except to say that “I Am”. From the perspective of a person in business, self-employed, teaching Reiki classes and doing private sessions, it really is important to have a handle on technology. I update my own websites (yes, I have more than one), write my own blog articles, and research and invest in supplements and products my clients need for healing and recovery. For example, I now carry InLight Medical infrared light pads after researching and using light therapy pads for approximately two years.

Returning to the concept of leadership, I like to go back to the fundamentals of Reiki and shamanism. These fundamentals set the framework for everything else I do. Before even getting out of bed, I activate my palms with Reiki symbols and balance my chakras with Reiki and a short meditation. At the start of my day, my shower includes a blessing of water flowing over me with intentions of washing away what no longer serves me. I anoint myself with essential oils on my feet holding intentions of receiving (on the left foot) and offering (on the right foot) in a ritualistic fashion. My morning continues with blessing my food and watering my plants (also with a blessing). Reading the comics is a priority over news. Walking the dog is a priority over work. Silence is a priority over music and television.

You may ask how these fundamentals make me a leader. It really depends on who and what you’re leading – and not leading. I’m not leading any fights, wars, or injustices. Though these circumstances exist, I believe we add to the mass consciousness and manifestation of trauma and injustice by focusing on it. I’d rather lead people in kindness, compassion, and thoughtful words. I’d rather lead people in a way of being healthy that honors Spirit living within us. I’d rather lead people who choose to learn how to live because they resonate with a higher vibration. You might say I’m leading a movement for BE-ing in a way that supports our natural world while we occupy it.

Things bother me, too. I’m bothered by the amount of plastics and toxicity, and take steps within my personal space to reduce using them, and to detoxify my body daily. I wish my brother didn’t have neuropathy, or that his wife didn’t have to endure a long, slow demise from cancer. I struggle with some personal relationships in which I know there’s a widening gap. Yet through it all, I continue with Reiki as a tool for enlightenment and possibilities that I can’t yet understand with my human brain.

We’re all on a journey of self-discovery that we hope leads to prosperity, abundance, joy, and the manifestation of Goodness in our lives. As a leader, I see myself setting an example, teaching classes, having productive conversations, and simply offering insight offered to me as a humble conduit from Source. Reiki may be one of the most beneficial classes you’ll ever take for enlightenment, empowerment, peace, and self-healing.

Reiki classes are offered monthly. I hope you can join us.
