What a powerful, much needed idea! Thank-you!
RELEASING NEGATIVE PERCEPTIONS OF OTHERS
During energy healing therapy I reached down to my feet (you can do this either with your physical hands or visualize yourself doing that), and pulled out and rolled up my beliefs about my mother, like rolling up a suit of clothes from my feet up toward my head. I pulled her image out of my cells, organs, glands, everywhere. I moved all the way up my body, slowly, concentrating on feeling where my negative perception of my mother was in my body and the discomfort of that, and pulling that out. Then when I got to the top of my head I pulled her all the way out and released her into the light and forgave her by saying “I release you to your wholeness. I forgive you. I forgive myself. I give you permission to forgive me. I give you permission to forgive…

I’ve ended an association and a deep lesson this week, and want to take a moment to mark the occasion. I’ve been processing a very interesting type of person lately. At first I thought it was all outside myself but as I’ve meditated on it I can feel it has more to do with me (and what I am asking to understand) than this person and what they are presenting.
What is clear is that it’s important to not feed the story. Today, I’m sitting with a lesson from The Course in Miracles. “There is nothing wrong with this world, the world isn’t real.”
Sometimes I forget my belief systems and need to refocus and the truth. It’s slippery business working through human relationships in authentic and pure ways. I think the best lesson out of this for me is that sometimes the best thing we can do for another…

Reiki is all about compassion and love; and as a Reiki Master, I am fulfilled when I am asked to spend time healing others. My heart fills with love and appreciation; because Quality Time is one of my love languages.
Love languages, you ask, “what is that?” It is the language spoken when we show others how much we love and appreciate them. Unfortunately, many of us think we are speaking clearly; but little do we know, the other cannot hear us because they speak a different love language than we do. And if we don’t know the language they speak, they may not get the message about how we feel.
Recently, I read Gary Chapman’s book, “The 5 Love Languages.” This book opened up my eyes and heart to how I spoke to the ones I loved; and to the lack of love I thought I had received. I…

Here’s an interesting study posted by the Center For Reiki Research, looking into the effect of Reiki on the automatic nervous system. According to the study 3 groups- a reiki group, a sham reiki group, and a rest-only placebo group were given 15 minutes rest, followed by 30 minutes of treatment (reiki, or sham reiki, or rest), followed by 10 additional minutes of rest. While the reiki and reiki sham groups both showed decreased heart rate and respiration, and increased parasympathetic activity, the reiki group also showed reduced diastolic and mean blood pressure. The rest-only control group showed no changes.
I guess, science says: yes!
Lay flat on your back, take a few deep breaths and connect to the Universe or Higher Power. To Reiki energy. Then imagine either my hands on your feet shooting the following lights out of my hands, or pull light energy up from mother earth to your feet.
Begin with red light shooting up the soles of your feet, up your legs, over your knees and to your root chakra. Shoot the beautiful red light out of your pelvis. Think “open” as you open up your root chakra and shoot the light through. Next, visualize orange light surrounding the soles of your feet and sending light up your legs over your pelvis to your belly button. Shoot orange light out of your sacral chakra. (Out your belly button) Thinking the word open as the orange light spirals out of your second chakra. Following the orange light is yellow light surrounding…

Tearing people down never builds anyone up. I was reminded of this when reading that Rolling Stone magazine had just put Pope Francis on its cover and featured a 7,000-word article about him. (Maybe the Dalai Lama will be next!) But unfortunately, in praising Francis’s impact on the Church and the world, the article lit into his predecessor, Benedict, in a manner that could only be called mean, comparing him to Freddy Krueger, the murderous monster in the “Nightmare on Elm Street” horror movies, and saying that he was enough to give teens nightmares.
Poor Pope Francis! Imagine him cringing in his guest-house room, thinking about how those words must be hurting his frail, ailing predecessor. Thinking about how he was somehow the cause of this pain, since by trying to do good, and through no fault of his, he had inadvertently brought ridicule on an already suffering man. I’ll…

Today, I read the saddest single sentence I have ever encountered. I wasn’t expecting to read it; I was scrolling down through Yahoo’s homepage and came upon an article about how people from abroad, both visitors and new residents, view America and Americans.
Of course, I couldn’t resist reading this. I was expecting to see the usual comments about how slovenly Americans are, in their sweatpants and hoodies or ill-fitting jeans and tee-shirts or worse. Or snide remarks about American obesity. Or shocked remarks about Americans’ spending habits, their addiction to malls, their obsessive shopping. Or about their eating habits, between fast food as a replacement for meals and monstrous portions as in “Supersize Me.” Or all-too-often true remarks about American ignorance, cultural blindness, and insularity.
What I wasn’t expecting to see was the comment I found, from an anonymous person obviously now living the typical American lifestyle but still…
