FIRST, A Big Huge Congratulations to our newest Rain Shadow Reiki, Reiki I students!!
What a wonderful and fun group of women. I know, I always say that, because it’s true. I’m blessed to have deep, inquisitive, curious, strong, respectful, spiritual and simply amazing students to take my classes.
Of course, as teacher, I take some credit, because I put the intention into my manifestation of amazing students every day, that I only get the best of the best students who vibrate well with me and are meant to take my classes. But, it’s a collision course for success, because they’ve been doing the same in manifesting the right Reiki teacher for them, so it’s literally impossible for them to NOT find me and for me to NOT find them. I love the way the Universe works.
Healing Crisis BEFORE a Reiki Class
When I took my Karuna Reiki class from William Lee Rand, he sent the books out beforehand so we could study the many symbols prior to the class. My ‘healing crisis’ or as I call it, HEALING OPPORTUNITY started right away and lasted in my opinion for a few years. It was powerful or pre-menopause, not 100% sure on that one. But, the healing opportunity started as soon as I received my manual a month before the class when in the summertime, I got a head cold. I don’t get head colds in the summer.
“When written in Chinese the word crisis is composed of two characters. One represents danger, the other opportunity.” John F. Kennedy
This can happen with any of the healing classes we take. As soon as we make the firm decision to change or evolve the healing opportunity can start. This is not the ‘fault’ of Reiki, this is a conscious decision your soul and human self has made to change, but change also comes with evolution, raising our vibration, learning. This can look like an emotional upset, cold or flu symptoms, strange dreams, trouble sleeping or being challenged by some of your old belief patters in hurtful and difficult ways. This is the cleansing process that the student chooses when they choose CHANGE. When they choose to evolve and get rid of the OLD and bring in the NEW vibration, our body, mind and spirit start to dump out the old stuff that no longer serves us. Some people start this process after the class, but yes, some of us lucky ones start right away.
From Six Down to Three
Thus, I had three people sign up for the class this week who were not able to complete it. Two of them were so sick they weren’t able to even attend the class, one came and went home early. Could they simply have colds? Yes, of course. Could they be detoxifying old stuff they no longer need and thus triggering a Healing Opportunity? Yes, of course. It doesn’t matter the why, the answer is the same, REIKI!!! Drinking lots of water, extra rest and taking an epsom salts bath helps a great deal too. So, my recommendation is, stick with your first intuition to evolve and take the Reiki class at your next possible opportunity. If you already have Reiki, REIKI YOURSELF A WHOLE LOT, EVERY DAY! That is my prescription for a healing crisis/opportunity.
“Healing is not an overnight process, it is a daily cleansing of pain, it is a daily healing of your life.” Leon Brown, found not guilty from new DNA evidence, after 30 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.
I’m greatly proud of ALL my Reiki students for being on their spiritual path and continuing to move forward despite difficult conditions. You are so much stronger than you know.
And, again, congratulations to my wonderful new Reiki students from this weekend, the ones who did make it through. I cannot wait to see where your Reiki path goes. So exciting.
Reiki Blessings to you ALL,
