CONGRATULATIONS NEW REIKI MASTERS!!

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

Thank you for being patient with me for new blogs.  

The healing process: mind, body, emotions and spirit is slow at this point and writing blogs is not something that I have been able to do easily.  I do want to share more about how Reiki has healed me and my son, but it may come later and in a different way.  We are considering pod casts and videos which are easier for me now.  If you have any opinions about that, please comment and let me know how you feel and if you would like that version of communication.  

In the meantime, I would like to congratulate and send Reiki and love to all of my new and experienced Reiki Masters.  I am teaching some now, a little less then I used to, but when I can, I’m teaching.  And this last weekend we had a Reiki III Master Class that lifted us all up. We had two free retakes and four new students.

Having more experienced students retake the class for free is a win/win for everyone.  The new students get more experienced questions and richer topics from the Masters.  The Masters get to be a mentor to new students, they get to be with like minded people all day, refresh knowledge that they may have forgotten, a nice refresher.  And, for me, I get to be with Reiki people all day, which is the BEST!!

So help me CONGRATULATE OUR NEW AND EXPERIENCED REIKI MASTERS!!

Dianne, Carol, Molly, Jennifer, Lisa and Sharon

Thank you, Josslyn

Reiki Didn’t Work For Me

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki

*****If you believe Reiki didn’t work for you, may I suggest you read on…..

**2nd in a series on being successful with your Reiki practice when it doesn’t come easy to you.  Here is a link to the first blog, Signs that your Reiki Really is ON.

In my classes, like my teacher before me,  I tell people to look back after one year of being attuned to Reiki and they will see how their lives have changed a great deal.  IF AND ONLY IF they are actually working with their Reiki regularly.  DAILY IS BEST.
I encourage you to work with your Reiki each and every day in your life, make it a part of your daily living and you will see major changes for good happening right away.
 However, what if Reiki doesn’t come easy to you?  What do you do then?
Easy………. like any other new thing in your life, stick to it, make it a priority, and then DO IT!! DO IT ANYWAY!!
GO WITH THE FLOW
With Reiki, I’m a very go with the flow teacher.  I believe the more we attempt to control our spiritual practice, the more Divine gives us lessons for control.
But, for this one thing, starting a new and very important habit that can literally change your life for the better — This One Time, Don’t Go With The Flow.  
*****REMINDER:

ANY CHANGE IS STRESS
In the beginning doing Reiki will be new and therefore different. Anything different to us can often be construed as STRESS!! ………..Oh no, not that!
If your mind translates the Reiki as stress then you will probably protect yourself from the stress by NOT doing it. Sabotage will occur, you stop doing it and then you end up seeing no benefits and it’s easy to say “Reiki didn’t work for me.”  When this is really not the truth at all.
We must work at the habit of the Reiki.
The daily work, the consistency to learn it, feel it and want it, is the hard part, the Reiki itself is the easy part.
Joss’ Story
“Doing Reiki for others came very easy to me, I’m a giver and always have been.  Receiving was totally new to me.  Therefore, doing Reiki on myself daily did not happen for quite a long time after taking my Reiki classes.  I knew I had these mental belief blocks to doing Reiki on myself, and I knew I needed to heal them, so I decided to do a lot of Reiki on others and INTEND to heal these blockages in my belief system during these healings on others.  Since our client and ourselves both receive Reiki, this was my indirect way of healing myself, the scenic route to healing an issue.  Longer, but also effective. This takes a little longer, but for me it worked – until it didn’t.  I reached a point where my intuition was giving me signs that this was no longer what I needed, I needed to do hands on Reiki daily.  I needed a new plan.  
So, I decided the old fashioned way was best for me.  It was close to the end of the year, so I decided that on New Years Day, I would make ONE New Years Resolution.  For that entire year, I would do Reiki on myself every single day, no matter what.  This was the only new major commitment I made that year and I stuck to it, because I knew I needed to and because I made the commitment to myself.  There were only two days where I had the stomach flu and did not accomplish my daily Reiki, every other day I did.  And what is more important, now doing Reiki on myself became MY NEW NORMAL.  Now, if I don’t do daily Reiki, I don’t feel normal and my body, mind and spirit remind me of this at the end of the day.  It’s a win/win.”
 Other Help – ME!
IF after a month of doing daily Reiki, you still have blockages that you can’t seem to budge, call me for a private session.  That is when we need other healers to help us.  Divine wants us to work together as a community.  He wants us to work as a team, to trust others.  If you have truly done all you feel you can do, that is when you ask for other help.   And if you are truly ready, mind, body and spirit, Reiki and myself will help remove the blockages that are holding you back.  Helping people move forward on their spiritual path is one of my specialties and one of my most favorite paths to help with.  I feel there is no other path that is more worthwhile than working on our connection to our Higher Selves.  I’m happy to help with this process.
 I pray this motivates some of you to take some action in your lives and practice your Reiki.  It’s all good.  It’s all part of YOUR personal journey.  Ask yourself, do I want my journey to start NOW?
 In Love and Light of our Divine Source,
 Josslyn

Reiki Quick Tip – Feeling the Reiki Energy in the Beginning

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

I know it’s sometimes hard to feel the Reiki energy when working on ourselves, especially in the beginning when we are new to Reiki and our hands and bodies are not as sensitive to the energy yet.

This will change with more practice, it will.  Your hands will get more sensitive to the subtle energy and your mind will learn to be still and be able to tap into the feelings that the subtle energy creates.  Don’t be so hard on yourself, machines and science cannot detect this energy, but humans can FEEL it.

However, feeling the energy is what makes it so magical, so mystical and helps us feel so connected to our Higher Power.  Feeling the sensations of the energy is what most of my students tell me they want, but don’t feel, when working on themselves- at first.

I always feel the Byoseen (subtle energy feelings) much stronger when working on others, so in the beginning, I just worked on other people a whole lot, every chance I got.

**But knowing that daily Reiki on ourselves is the most important thing we can do for our own healing, how do we motivate ourselves to work ON ourselves when we can’t FEEL the Reiki running?

Quick Tip to Feeling the Reiki in the Beginning

**When doing a Reiki treatment on yourself, hold your hands an inch or two above your body.  We can often feel the play of energy off the body better if we are not touching it directly.  This works great for self treatment or treatment on others.  Give it a try and see if you feel a difference or not.  Once we can feel the energy more, we are more motivated to actually DO our daily self treatment.  Some people feel the energy more on the body, try both ways and see what works for you.  Pretty soon, you’ll be feeling it no matter how you DO IT.

Hope this helps.  Have fun with your Reiki.  Try new things and listen to your Divine Reiki Guides, they will give you ideas like this too.

Reiki Blessings,

Josslyn

Reiki Gassho Workshop

Join us for our Gassho Workshop

The Gassho ritual

Monday, April 29, 2019 from 3pm to 8pm. All Reiki levels welcome. 5-hour workshop, $75

The Gassho Reiki Ritual is one of the most important and grounding rituals I do for my spiritual self. It has become vital to my daily practice and to who I am energetically, psychically and physically as a person. Some classes do not teach the Gassho in Reiki I and some do, like ours, but there is so much other new information that sometimes the importance of the Gassho ritual, gets lost. This workshop will focus on helping you feel connected and confident in your practice of the Gassho.
.
In this workshop we will be meditating, experiencing and working with the ritual of the Gassho. The Gassho is one of my very favorite Reiki rituals. I depend upon it as my grounding, boundary and intentional work for each day, as well as each healing.
.
We will be delving into this practice as well as going deeper into our souls as healers. What do we need most to work on ourselves or clients and how to do that to best support the healer in each of us. What do we truly need to be the best healer we can be in this moment. Healing ourselves is our most important work in this life, how does the Gassho fit into that picture for you.

Here’s what students are saying about our Gassho Workshop:

“This workshop allowed me to deepen my awareness of my connection to my Gassho practice.  Josslyn divided the Gassho into individual components- this made it easier for me experience the Gassho in a much more introspective and personal way.  I value and will continue to use this new practice!!!”

Michele Reynolds

“I feel so much better about doing my Gassho and intention, I will NO LONGER second guess myself; wondering if I’m doing it right.

This class has given me relief in performing Gassho and empowerment in my Reiki!”

Reiki for Grieving/Trauma – 3

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

I want to share my Reiki process for grief and trauma. It’s simple, but it’s not easy, like many things with Reiki.

But first I want to tell a tiny bit of my story so you know, feel, I’m truly qualified to do this. So you know I’ve been to hell and back and survived and then I’ll tell you how I survived. Reiki of course…..

I’m a survivor. Not just the crash that took my husband and son to Heaven on July 20, 2017, left my younger son and myself in a wheelchair and bedridden for six months after, respectively, and changed every single inch of my life, but my whole life. Many of us Reiki folk are like this, we haven’t had cushy lives, we’ve had lives that have molded us through friction and dramatic change, like the earth. And, many of us, at least in my circle who have had quite a bit of trauma to mold us, are also Highly Sensitive Souls; healers, intuitives, empaths.

In many ways, that is how our souls choose to be created, that is how we choose to learn and grow our gifts and talents for this purpose in this life- through intense pressure. Not all, but many. It is a very common way because it goes deep on all levels and heals deep on all levels.

My life has been like that. It started with early age abuse; emotional, mental, sexual. Chronic illness was added early teen years and later teen years. Then started the job violence being a bank teller at a very ‘popular’ branch for take overs and gun hold ups. Then my sales job after college where I dealt with muggings, more hold ups and multiple incidences of street violence in my job where I had to go to some bad parts of the city of Los Angeles. I shook it all off and buried it deep inside, where it belongs, right? And, I kept on moving on with my life without batting an eye. That’s what good girls do. Until……

Until it all got to be too much for my soul and it said I’VE HAD ENOUGH!! Then I was plunged into this deep and long depression where I don’t even remember how I survived the months, years in the pit, but for some loving co-workers who at long last recognized the signs and boldly got me some help.

That was when I started on my healing path with the typical medical model, but at least I was looking at myself in a whole different way than before. I was not looking at myself as “I’m always ok, it’s everyone elses fault.” I was seeing myself as a person who was broken and needed help. That was new and needed. Long story short, the medical model failed for me and a friend turned me on to alternative medicine and acupuncture.

Meanwhile, in the midst of healing the depression with Western Medicine, I met my husband to be and fell in love. He saved me and he said, I saved him. So, we saved each other. He was the best thing that ever happened to me and the day I learned about energy from my acupuncturist, he was right there by my side learning about it too. We woke up together. He was always right there with me, supporting me on my healing path and my ‘learning to be a healer’ path as well. When times got tough, and they did, we held each other up and got through it together. When his mom and dad died within a few years of each other, I held him up like he had all the time I was ill. When our marriage had troubles, he never gave up and we both worked hard to save it. We always got through it together.

I always said, as long as I had my family, I could get through anything. Well, now they’re gone. My younger son and I are making our way together, like Robert and I did initially. We’re learning how to be a family of two with a whole lot of help from my Reiki family of many. I tease Sawyer that he has TOO MANY MOMS!! Because our house is always full of my Reiki healers & friends who all happen to be moms and love him dearly. But for a 15 year old, maybe that’s too much sometimes. But, secretly I think he likes it most of the time.

So what is this all about? HOW DOES THIS HELP YOU?

Hopefully this helps you by knowing you are not alone. That by going through all this SH*t in life we are honing our gifts, talents and healing abilities. Some of our psychic abilities are directly related to FEELING out abusive situations and learning to read the energy of the room or a person. And, that NOTHING is ever wasted. Every single event, every single process is a way to make us stronger, to learn what we are truly made of and to help us FEEL that REALLY FEEL THAT ON ALL LEVELS and in our core of our soul.

Seriously, the most loving and amazing women I have know, have been through the worst kind of trauma and survived. We’re diamonds created from high pressure, high intensity, grief and trauma. It’s one kind of process and the one our soul’s chose.

BUT the other way this helps YOU, because in your world, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU……

I want to share my Reiki process for grief and trauma now. It’s simple, but it’s not easy, like many things with Reiki. We have to do it, and do it for a LONG TIME, MANY MANY MANY TIMES, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. We do not become a diamond over night.

MY CURRENT PROCESS FOR GRIEF & TRAUMA

I’m a bullet point person, so I’ll put it in bullet points.

*Gassho- bring in your Reiki with intention. My intention daily is to be in the flow of healing. Anything and everything that is not mine, ready to leave, no longer serving me goes to Divine Source of Reiki or to Mother Earth and Reiki takes its place.

*I do full healings daily, 1 – 3 depending upon my time, and also little short healings all through the day.

*I also do Reiki when I move, when I drive, when I’m on the go. Reiki Un Doe.

CONGRATULATIONS NEWEST REIKI II PRACTITIONERS!!

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

In March and April we had a weekday class for Reiki I and II and many of the students made it through both classes for all six days. We had so much fun and learned a great deal.

Many of these students were energy healers in other ways before taking Reiki. So they had wonderful and deep questions and we all learned a lot.

THAT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS, helping people see and experience how Reiki melds easily with ANY OTHER HEALING MODALITY. The way I teach Reiki, as the energy first, technique second, this is one of my specialities. IF the students are ready, willing and able to let go and allow Reiki to take the reins miracles happen. When we let go, and trust that Reiki knows what we and our client needs, it’s effortless and so in the flow, graceful.

Blessings to all my students, THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME GREET THESE NEW REIKI PRACTITIONERS!! LOVE TEACHING REIKI!! Josslyn

EARTH DAY WORKSHOP – next Monday!

The beautiful Rio Grande, one of the most beautiful rivers on earth.

April 22nd is Earth Day, a day to celebrate and show LOVE to our beloved planet. This year the theme is ‘PROTECT OUR SPECIES.’ Many of our Reiki people have shown a great interest in participating in Reiki Healing on the Earth and it is important to us as well.

In this experiential workshop we will be talking about and DOING healings on the Earth and it’s species and how we can best serve our planet. It is really US, the humans, who need the healing, but by focusing all our attention as a group on healing specific parts of the earth or specific species, we in turn heal ourselves and others who choose it as well. The snowball effect for these community healings is HUGE and has a great effect on all of us. It helps us to be more in tune with our planet and the animals as well as get intuitions of how we can help more in our daily lives.

The whales need healing now more than ever.

We will bring in our Reiki Healing Energy, meditate so we are all on the same level of resonance, and do two healings on the Earth and its species. We can choose what we want to heal and usually Mother Earth provides something timely for us to focus our attention on. Then we will also do a healing specifically on a species that is dear to our hearts and speaks to us for the second healing. The group energy will make this event extremely powerful for us and Mother Earth.

Get ready, it’s going to be EXCELLENT!! All Reiki levels are welcome. 3 hours, $50 April 22nd, 5:30pm to 8:30pm Follow this link to sign up for this awesome workshop!

New Reiki Healing Room Added-It’s AMAZING!!

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

We now have two healing rooms ready, willing and able to hold space for your healing process. We have three Reiki Master/Teachers, one teaching room, four Reiki Master healers on staff plus a couple more who come when needed for specialty work like; Human Design, Astrology readings, QRI laser healing, Color Puncture and more.

At Rain Shadow Reiki Energy Healing Center we’ve been painting, swatching, shopping (Lots of shopping!!) and much more to get our new healing room ready for …………well…………HEALING!!

VISION

This has been a team effort and it has turned out more beautiful than we could have imagined. It started with Feng Shui. I know a tad bit about Feng Shui, just enough to be dangerous. I knew this room was in our FAME center in the Baqua of the building so I googled FAME CENTER colors and it came up with; orange, red, purple, hot pink, bright yellow, brown and wood for the element. The Fame Center is all about our good name in the community and we want a good name.

OMG, HOW AM I GOING TO TURN THOSE COLORS INTO A CALM HEALING SPACE? Well, we did. I had a vision and we did it. I’m not a decorator or even good with this kind of stuff, but I know what I like, and I have a lot of help.

TEAM WORK

Some of my students came to paint the room while I was on vacation so it was ready to surprise me when I got home. THAT WAS AWESOME! Just like Reiki works, every time we needed something, there was someone there who knew how to do it and volunteered. Much of the time this person was our new office manager, Bren. She’s an amazing DIY’er. Grateful for that and her!!

BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING SPIRIT ART WORK

Along with our vision came with a desire to have a really great painting to showcase the room. We called another one of our clients’ and asked if her husband would be willing to talk to us about the commission. He did and long story short, the painting is beautiful, more beautiful than we could have imagined it to be. He captured our idea and went further with it. We told him that our vision for this room was women all stepping into their light together and raising each other up with that process. Walking side by side in that process and sharing their light. Dwayne sat with Divine and received a vision of his own, then painted it. I have always been very in awe of people who can do that. Art is not my creative talent. But, it is his. Thank you Dwayne Northup.

So, onto the photos, but most of all, I just want to say a BIG HUGE THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED INT HIS PROCESS, I COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR MANY HANDS. GRATEFUL FOR YOU ALL!!

Blessings and Gratitude,

Josslyn
