My eight year old, Sawyer, has had a harder time in the learning process of Reiki than his older brother. Sawyer likes to see things to believe in them, like a lot of us. He also is a bit more afraid than his brother in looking like someone who doesn’t know what he’s talking about in front of friends and other people. He wavers in his belief in God because, like Santa, he hasn’t seen God yet. It’s been a fun process showing him all the things we cannot see but we know are there, like gasses, farts, helium inside balloons, and of course, Reiki energy. We quite often practice making energy balls with our hands in the kids Reiki circle to remind the kids how easy it is to FEEL the energy that they can’t yet see, and thus, know it’s there and real.
Anyway, today we had some light snow flurries and Sawyer and I were looking out the window watching them. We have a lovely view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands and I was looking over at the storm over the islands. Amidst the snow storm I saw a stream of light shining through the clouds onto the islands and I pointed it out to Sawyer. Quite spontaneously, he said “Wow, mom. It looks like God turned on his desk lamp!”
I have to say, it made this Reiki Mom proud. I couldn’t resist sharing. One of the best parts of being a parent is the great things your kids say.
