Joss’ Dramatic Email Story to Draw You In
Years ago, before I knew Reiki, my husband and I were in the process of buying a franchise business. It was an enrichment activity place for children and would help children to learn how to feel, understand and relate their emotions more powerfully and spiritually. It was amazing. However, after months of planning, preparation and training, we had severe ethical differences with the owner and ended up severing ties with her and the whole business idea. It was the death of a dream for us.
Unfortunately, it was the death of much more than that too. Our beloved dog Marley died at exactly the same time in an accident. It was an accident, however, I still felt at fault and felt a great deal of guilt over the situation. I was grieving our family member and our business dream at the same time. We didn’t know where to take our dreams from there, it was just too painful to move on. It was a very hard time especially since I didn’t have nearly as many coping skills as I have now with Reiki.
THE POWERFUL EMAIL
At the same time of us feeling defeated, depressed and in limbo, the franchise owner’s friend sent me a scathing email about the situation. She, of course believed her friend to be ethical and didn’t believe us. The email was extremely unkind but even worse, she powerfully put ALL of her emotions into the email as she wrote it and transferred them to me when I opened it. As soon as I clicked to open the email, I felt fully every hurtful emotion she was feeling towards us come through the email before I even read it. It got into my auric field and brought me down like a ton of bricks. I was still grieving and working through my own fears and issues with leaving the business behind and feeling responsible for our family member’s death, so her email and the emotional energy that came though with it, easily got into my unprotected auric field and exacerbated any difficult emotions I was already feeling ten fold. I got physically sick on top of the depression and had trouble functioning for weeks afterward. I didn’t fully realize at that time that an email could carry energy like that and affect me to such a degree. I finally realized what was happening and started meditating and doing some healing work that I knew at the time to help me remove this energy from my body, mind and spirit. Over time I got better and was able to put it behind me. This is obviously an extreme situation, but it is the extreme that sticks with us and teaches us some of our biggest lessons. And I learned an important one, REIKI YOUR EMAILS, COMING IN AND GOING OUT!!
HOW REIKI HELPS US THROUGH OUR EMAILS
When we Reiki the emails we can neutralize any less than loving feelings we may be having at the time we write the email, so the other person doesn’t receive them energetically. We can also neutralize any of those same feelings that may be coming IN on an email from someone else BEFORE it gets to us. We all have stressed or negative feelings from time to time, but we don’t need to be sending them out to the world or to our friends via emails and pm’s.
BONUS: When we Reiki emails going out, the Reiki will help to heal any less than loving feelings we are having at the time too. It’s a win/win.
We do not need anyone’s permission to do this because we are not sending Reiki TO the person, we are sending it to the email, surrounding and protecting the energy of the email. We are sending Reiki to the email so it is full of positive love energy. If the person on the receiving end chooses to take some Reiki that comes with the email, that is between them and their Higher Power.
HOW TO SEND REIKI LOVE WITH YOUR EMAILS
As always, this is my way. Feel free to use this one or trust your higher self, your Reiki Guides and you own personal knowledge to come up with a way that feels right for you.
Reiki incoming as well as outgoing emails with this process:(also snail mail, Facebook, etc.)
- Gassho- Hold your hands in the prayer position at your heart and ask Divine to send down the Reiki. Hold your hands in prayer position at your third eye and ask Divine to send down your Reiki Guides of the Highest and most Sacred Order of Love and Light. (If you are in a hurry you don’t always need to do the Gassho, as long as you do it much of the time. Or you can do this in your mind, silently without the movements if you are at work.)
- While I have the email or message that I’m sending pulled up on the computer screen, I simply hold up my left hand flowing with Reiki towards the screen with intentions that it’s getting to the email, every letter, word, paragraph and space. I imagine the email and the Reiki flowing to it. (If around other people, simply do this with your eyes.)
- Let the Reiki flow with intention. You can visualize the Reiki flowing into the email, dancing around the letters. Flowing through the message or just melding with its essence. Intention: Clean and clear, safe and sacred.
- If you have Reiki symbols – I like to use the CKR sandwich; 1. Start with a blessing symbol like the Power Symbol (CKR) or a master blessing symbol (UDKM or TDKM) for the intention of sending blessings to the email and anyone who reads it. (We can send a blessings symbol without permission.) 2. Then I send in the Mental/Emotional Symbol (SHK) and chant in my head the mantra with my intention, ‘clean and clear,’ three times each. This will clean the email of any stress or emotion that you are feeling when you write it.You can chant the Reiki symbols in your head with the intention that they are flowing out your hands and into each individual email you are sending out. 3. End the sandwich with the Power Symbol (CKR) for energizing the email to the perfect balance for you and the person receiving it.
- Reiki your email until you feel it is enough.
You can use this process for letters, pm’s or other forms of communication.
Thank the Reiki and your guides! Send the email with Love & Light!
