By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki
Every year I take summer break with my kids. I’m a Reiki Master/Teacher part-time and a mother full-time. So when they are off school, I’m off too. I enjoy the down time, the time away from schedules and the ‘have tos’. I do not teach classes or circles in the summer, I do see clients, but less often.
This blog started out as an apology to my followers for not writing more blogs for the last two months. I’m usually more consistent than that. But, especially with my writing, I go with the flow of the energy and the creativity. And, if it’s not meant to be, then it doesn’t happen. Apparently I needed some time off because it hasn’t been happening.
“Activity and rest are two vital aspects of life. To find a balance in them is a skill in itself. Wisdom is knowing when to have rest, when to have activity, and how much of each to have. Finding them in each other – activity in rest and rest in activity – is the ultimate freedom.”
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Celebrating Silence
My Amazing Reiki Guides
But, what this blog is really about is my amazing guides and how they allow me to take time off to recharge my batteries and how YOU too can work with your guides to get the time off you need and exactly when you need it.
Talk To Your Spirit/Reiki Guides Daily
I talk to my guides daily. I tell them my ideas, what I need, what I want and then I simply ask them to help. I have told them they have a right to read my mind so they know what’s going on all the time. We must give them permission for this, otherwise they will not invade our mental space. If it feels right to you, just talk to your God, Divine Source and hold the intention that you are fine with your guides of Love and Light reading your mind. This saves time and it helps to know that they love us no matter what and only want the best for us. Otherwise you’ll want to speak to them specifically and with intention to let them know you are talking directly to them.
An Example – when summer is approaching I say in my mind, “I’m really tired, I need some time off. Reiki guides, please help me to have the time off I need this summer. Unless it’s an emergency, Please hold off any clients until I’m ready and refreshed and able to do my best job for them.” And you know what? They do. They do exactly as I ask. I have had only a few clients all summer and exactly at times when I was ready, willing and able to work with them. When I got back from our Sedona, AZ trip and I was ready to work again. I simply though “I’m ready to get back to work next week!” Amazingly I’ve had clients calling and emailing all week and I’ve been booked up! Thank you Reiki guides!! ( If your guides are reading your mind, they will know automatically when you need a break.)
So, give it a try. Work at communicating with your guides more. Give them specific measurable tasks to attain and see what happens. Play around with them, have fun, say Please and Thank You and you’ll be surprised by the outcome.
And, I’m back! I’ll be putting out more blogs soon. This is just a teaser for now,
Pray you all had a wonderful summer and some rest too!
Love and Light to you all,
