The Knots Prayer with Reiki to Ease the Holiday Discomfort

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki Energy Healing Center in Sequim, WA

The holiday time is not always the joyous time for some of us. For some of us they are very difficult without our loved ones, lonely, feeling emotional or mental traumas get worse by the unbalanced energy of everyone else being so happy and expecting others to be so too. There is so much expectation and many of us aren’t able to rise to it and don’t need to or want to. I understand. I’m in it too. I’m walking the path with many of you of grief, trauma, PTSD, depression.

I work with my Reiki constantly through the day to help life me up and get done the things I need/want to get done, and heal me in between. I am healing all day long.

Sometimes my students/clients are afraid they don’t have the right words so they don’t do their Gassho or turn to their Reiki when they could. You do not have to have the ‘right’ words. The perfect words come from your heart and just describe what you feel. Just tell Reiki Source HOW YOU FEEL and HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL. And ask the Reiki to HEAL THAT. And it will.

But some people like to have words as a jumping off place and I understand that as well.

So, I’m sharing a prayer that I like. I don’t remember where I found it, but I didn’t write it myself. Lets say, Author Known to God.

Blessings to all who are reading, may you have the best next two weeks that you can possibly have WITH THE LOVE AND LIGHT OF REIKI SURROUNDING YOU!!

Love and Light,

Josslyn, Ellen, Amber


Dear God/Reiki Source/Universe/The God of Your Heart,

Thank you for untying the knots that are in my mind, my heart, and my life.

Thank you for removing the have nots, the can nots, and the do nots that I have in my mind.

Thank you for erasing the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart.

Thank you for releasing me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.

and most of all, Reiki Source,

I thank you for removing from my mind, my heart and my life all of the ‘am nots’ that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.


Author Known to God

  1. Thank you! Beautiful prayer. Perfect when creating a plan for the upcoming year…..Untie those knots.

    1. Thank you Alison for reading and commenting. So grateful. The prayer spoke to me so I posted it in hopes that it would speak to others. We are all so unique, I never know, but it usually resonates with someone who resonates with me. Pray your holiday season was better than you hoped. Blessings, Josslyn
