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.

Spirituality of Unconditional Source

20180730_145911Last week as I chose a crystal to accompany me on my meditation, I let go of any preconceived ideas about which crystal to choose and for which purpose. My only intention, honestly, was to have a friend along to be present with me while I connected to the divine. Oh, yes, sometimes I choose a specific stone with which to work. Maybe it’s one that’s newly acquired, or jumping out at me from my table of assorted crystals. However, in this case, the crystal that wanted to join me on my journey was a “singing quartz point” I received from a friend in Arizona. I was originally drawn to having such a crystal in my set of crystal friends when I first met one more than a year ago while in teacher training for advanced sound healing classes. Little did I know that bringing one into my life would have such a profound impact.

The Physical Nature of Spirit

First, let me tell you about the physical nature of this particular quartz crystal. As with most quartz points, this one has six sides, and six facets which all come to a point at one end with a growth pattern of 4-5-3-3-4-5. That means that each of the pointed facets have edges that, when counted may reveal something about its nature and function. It has markings on the sides indicating its use as a record keeper. There is some indication of “damage” which created a rainbow effect in one intersection of the faces. Small crystals attached to two of the sides are referred to as barnacles indicating new energy, while markings of an imprint embed the energy of a crystal that may have grown adjacent to this one. Partly clear and partly clouded, it’s the perfect balance of masculine and feminine wisdom.

Though people most often associate physical characteristics of quartz points with their energy and their meaning, I like to notice those features “second”, after I get to know the feeling of the spirit within the crystal. I often prompt my Reiki students to rely on their own senses to receive messages from any crystals we have in class. As I sat in silence and quieted my mind, I was quickly invited IN, inside the crystal, as I have often experienced when meditating with quartz. Experiencing the feeling of quartz from an inside perspective slows things down and I can see as well as feel the inner nature of the Being with whom I’m communicating. Images of molecular structure and the 3-dimensional components of chemistry and biology passed by my mind as I went deeper into the story unfolding before me. I heard the word “conditional” and instantly knew that the crystal held to my heart as well as the crystal in which I walked spoke to me about how the 3-dimensional world relied on what we understood as Laws of Science. Atoms get together, electrons move around, one molecule joins with another, and so forth, because that’s the way our earth exists for us.

Then my focus shifted to the space between the atoms and physical structures. The space became vast, uncluttered by physical construction, patterns, and “conditions”. I felt myself become instantly uplifted and unencumbered by my own physicality. I heard the word “unconditional” and knew, at least in part, the meaning of the message. The Divine Source exists in the unconditional state – in the spaces between the fabrication of our seen reality. Objects and structures exist only on the “condition” of scientific laws, the ones we understand and apply to 3-dimensional rules . . . positive attracts negative, for example. In the unconditional realm of infinite possibilities, we must give up any misconceptions about our existence.

What If?

Though science tells me that silicone dioxide makes up the chemical composition of quartz, it feels to me that simplifying a spiritual being (the one dwelling in quartz on this dimensional plane) overlooks the magic we all hold inside us. We’re unconditional beings living in a conditional world. What if we approached our sense of being and purpose as “magical”, “unlimited”, and “unconditional”?

Sometimes I hear words that come across as excuses as to why a person can’t achieve their goals, have money, prosperity, love, joy, clarity, and all the things that feel beyond reach to them. Though I won’t diminish how people really feel about their circumstances or the moments that led up to their conditional conclusions, I will offer that perhaps another view exists – one already inside us, in the spaces between the physical structures of muscles, bones, cells, and electrons. Those spaces are much more vast, and more powerful than the 3-dimensional conditional “reality” outside of spirit.

Embodied Spirit

Have you discovered your Soul’s Purpose? Do you have answers to the big questions – Who am I? Why am I here? What is my soul’s purpose? How do I manifest everything I want? In an effort to share a process that goes beyond the physical plane to the unconditional way of being, I’ve developed an online course called Embodied Spirit. As I prepare to launch  Embodied Spirit™ I’m inviting a few people who feel ready to go beyond limitations to discover new possibilities.

First, fill in the form on my website here to get access to my free ebook. Then, I’m accepting a limited number of applications (only 15 people) to participate in the Pre-Launch class. This is offered at a dramatically reduced price of only $249 for the first four modules, after which you have the option to continue modules 5-7 for only $99 (a total investment of only $348). After the course officially launches later, the price will be $997.

I know you’re going to love it, but just in case you have any reservations, if you’re not completely satisfied with the pre-launch course, your investment can be applied toward any private sessions or classes. Just let me know within 30 days of purchase to make the adjustment.

I can’t wait to hear from you. Many blessings,

Working with Guides

When I was writing this webinar I realized that my topic of working with guides rapidly grew to include subjects that are sometimes hard to talk about – like pain and suffering. The web of discovery, growth, and stepping further along your path of spiritual mastery isn’t always pleasant. You can’t just look it up in a book or flip open an oracle deck of cards to get answers to the tough questions. Though those tools are fun and exciting (and often very satisfyingly accurate), spiritual mastery involves reaching deep into your psyche to uncover the stuff of nightmares, hardships, and challenges as well as discovery, alignment, truth, and wholeness.

In tonight’s webinar we draw attention to the Wounded Healer in shamanic practices. Learn more about loneliness, suffering, and a way to find truth and clarity in working with guides.

 

When Your Heart Speaks, Are You Listening?

In all my biology classes that I ever attended or taught, I never learned anything about the heart like I’m about to share here in this class for Spiritual Mastery. The heart’s physiology is indeed fascinating. I was hooked on the heart’s anatomy and physiology at a young age – enthralled by the transparent images overlapping one another in my encyclopedia when I was only about ten years old. I followed the arteries and veins of the circulatory system as arrows pointed out the direction of deoxygenated blood flowing from heart to lungs, then oxygenated blood flowing from lungs to heart, up to the brain and throughout the body. I loved the idea that valves opened and closed, directing not only the direction of the flow, but also the rhythm and speed of the pump. Lub-dub, lub-dub. Lub-dub. I felt for my pulse inquisitively in my neck and wrist, marveling that my whole body echoed the rhythm in my chest.

When you’re a child, there’s room for delight and discovery with the physical nature of the body.  Our embodiment as spiritual beings carries the essence of life, vibrating in harmony with life in the universe. Just as we stir in the early hours of the day to awaken our physical awareness, we also activate our harmonic coherence to the rising sun in its warmth, light, and sounds of nature awakening also. We’re in rhythm with earth’s rotation facing us toward and away from the sun, as well as its yearly revolution informing us of the seasonal changes. In our dream state we harmonize with the rhythm of our breath, letting the innate systems of our bodies forget the tasks of thinking, remembering, and doing to simply BE in a state of harmony while we sleep.

Yet, as adults (or even as school-age children) we subject ourselves to a different timepiece – one of obligation, judgement, habit, and resistance. How do these rhythms affect our lives as we continue to live and grow in our relationships, at home and at work? How can we tap into harmony, health, prosperity and abundance with ease?

The forgotten piece of the puzzle is the heart. I don’t mean its anatomy or physiology. I’m referring to the spirituality of the heart that is closely tied to innate wisdom. Learn more in my Spiritual Mastery Webinar. Then give me a call to set up a time when you can tap into your heart’s wisdom – the wisdom to which your brain seems to not always listen.

Recipes For Healing

It’s so easy to get off-track from good intentions. You can remember when you “used to” devote more time to practices that helped calm you, or fed your soul. Perhaps you’re just starting out, looking for better ways to BE in the world and live a healthier life style. Today I’m providing you with simple recipes for healing. You’ll be surprised at how well they work as both fundamental healing recipes and long-term practices for a healthier lifestyle. Let me know what you think.

Divine Compassion

As we grow in our spirituality, we become more powerful. Sometimes we may come on a little strong, or seem insensitive to others. Yet, this is part of our human-ness and our growth as we become more aware of higher vibrations.

Don’t be afraid of growth or of your personal power. We are all surrounded with loving guides, sacred spirits who want us to be who we are. These guides offer the grace of divine compassion. Learn more and watch here:

 

Animal Guides and Teachers

When working with animal guides and teachers, we can summon the assistance of cards, images, sounds and artifacts related to animals. In my healing center, I invoke specific animals guides with crystal or wooden likenesses that serve as reminders of the qualities of each animal represented. For example, in the north corner of my space I have a wooden carving of an elephant. This elephant guide reminds of heavy structure, strength, connection to earth energies, and commitment to family. It feels very solid and affirming. Similarly, I also have actual representations of specific animals – feathers, fur or skin, fossils, and shells. These I either use directly in healing sessions, or place in their respective areas of the room.

Cards and images may also be used when working with animal guides and teachers. I especially like the decks and images from Susan Seddon Boulet who painted images for her Animal Spirits deck.

Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals by Jamie Sams is a combination book and deck of cards through which you can do readings, card layouts, or selecting a single card for inspiration and guidance.

Animal Speak by Ted Andrews is another wonderful resource. Ted Andrews also has an inspirational card deck for working with animal guides.

No matter what your choice, begin your exploration in any way you are drawn. Animals, because they are grounded and of pure love & light are safe guides for anyone, from novice to advanced readers and healers. Let me know what you’ve chosen. I’d love to hear from you.
