This month’s Peninsula Healers Circle topic was taught by Mary Ellen (ME) Bartholomew, a Donna Eden Energy Practitioner and Reiki Master from Port Angeles. Let me just say, SHE WAS FABULOUS AND SO WAS THE TOPIC!! So much of what she talked about, truly spoke to me. It was eye-opening and I couldn’t help thinking “Wow, if everyone knew this and did this daily, there would be no depression in our world at all! Maybe even no fighting or war?!!” Suffering from depression for so many years, I felt that joy was gone for good and I had no idea how to bring it back. Reiki helped me with this over time and still does. But, now I can see, I might have found my joy much quicker if I had known how to reactivate it through my energy field with the Radiant Circuits.
Chakras, Meridians & Radiant Circuits
Similar to chakras and meridians, the radiant circuits are another part of our energy system but once activated they do not have to run on any particular pathway, they can go anywhere they are needed. They connect all our energy systems. Donna Eden calls them Radiant Circuits but other names are Joy Flows, Strange Flows, Extraordinary Vessels and more descriptive names.
They are the only energy system in smaller creatures, like bugs. And the very first energy system that is created by a fetus, before chakras and meridians. Thus the Chinese believe the radiant circuits to be the first energy system in our body’s energy system even though they were not discovered first. The purpose of the Radiant Circuit system is to give us access to feel joy, bliss and uplifting feelings. It is our soul’s true goal and purpose to BE IN JOY. Radiant circuits also act as a tie between the other parts of our energy system, the chakras and meridians.
How Do We Activate Them?
Mary Ellen taught us in our class how to trace the Radiant Circuits like you would the meridians. And four of them are the same as the meridian system of pathways. If you are familiar with Donna Eden’s energy medicine at all (check out YouTube) you know in order to strengthen or activate your meridians you trace them along their path.
You can do the same with Radiant Circuits. In fact, there are many good videos on YouTube that show you how to trace these radiant circuits. I have posted a link to one that I like HERE. It’s about 6 minutes long. My favorite part of the whole class was at the end when Mary Ellen played a great song called ‘Thank You For This Day’ by Karen Drucker and we all danced to the music with gratitude and positive affirmations in it, drawing infinity symbols around ourselves and incorporating tracing the radiant circuits to the music. It was beautiful and I can’t think of a better way to start each day. Just the dancing with so many like-minded souls activated my joy for sure. The whole process brought me joy and helped me to feel empowered towards my goal this year which is to bring in my love and joy!
Other Ways to Activate Radiant Circuits
There are other ways to activate the circuits and if you add the intention to any of these activities you can activate them in a faster amount of time and feel joy in your life sooner. But, like any intention and energy healing, this is an activity that needs to be done on a daily basis and is well worth the effort.
Once the Radiant Circuits are reactivated they also help us cope with the modern-day stresses of life in a more joyful light-hearted manner, helping us to get through even the most difficult of days on Earth in a more positive manner, holding onto our bliss at the same time.
Intention can be something like “It is my intention that this activity is activating my Radiant Circuits & creating joy in me as I do it!”
Reiki, Stretching, Yoga, exercise, Qi Gong, affirmations, dance, music, singing, walking with intention, creativity, gratitude, being with a beloved friend, confiding in someone you trust, anything that brings happiness and health to YOU, etc.
This is a Reiki blog, so you can bet I’m going to be adding in intentions to activate the radiant circuits for my clients during sessions and if it is needed, my guides will help me with this and I’ll know how to do it in combination with Reiki. I can’t wait to see what results we get. I’ll be watching the Donna Eden videos and working with Mary Ellen along the way to learn more about this fascinating new possibility.
I truly believe our souls want us to be happy and find our place of bliss. However, while in human form on Earth most of us are constantly in fight, flight or freeze mode. This is due to modern-day societal stresses and our triple warmer meridian, which protects us by keeping us in this stressed state. (We must be prepared for action in case of an emergency – that is how Triple Warmer thinks).
Typically Triple Warmer keeps us in fight, flight or freeze mode. Or it takes us there unnecessarily out of old habits. Situations all day long trigger old stressful or even traumatic memories and they take us back to FF or F mode. This is reactivity mode where Triple Warmer activates inappropriately and when not needed. Triple Warmer was meant to protect us, help us have quick reactions and sudden or immense strength in times of need. (We don’t need to be the HULK all the time, but we are too often.) TW can pull energy from all the systems except the heart. Radiant Circuits can help to bring in calm during times of stress causing us to not go into FF or F and instead stay in a state of bliss. THIS IS HUGE, PEOPLE!! Modern Americans are in a state of Fight Flight or Freeze almost every day. This is a major cause of illness and depression in our country. This is why Reiki and other energy healing techniques like activating the Radiant Circuits is so vital at this time in our history. It can truly help people to not only cope, but to truly find their bliss.
A BIG HUGE thank you to Mary Ellen for introducing us to this amazing and life changing energy system. I look forward to practicing more and bringing in more bliss and less stress. I hope reading a bit about this has motivated you to watch one of Donna’s videos and learn for yourself. I know I’m going to be blissed out all day today and I’m grateful for it.
“If we were talking to you on your first day here, we would say, “Welcome to planet Earth. There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have. And your work here — your lifetime career — is to seek joy. As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who- you-really-are. And in doing so, you will utilize your profound freedom. Seek joy first, and all of the growth that you could ever imagine will come joyously and abundantly unto you.” Ester and Jerry Hicks card pack for Abundance and the Law of Attraction
