Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. That’s why I love Winnie the Pooh.
Reiki is Love, you just have to feel it to experience it in order to understand it. The best way to FEEL it is to TRY it. If you have never tried it, you have no idea how it feels or what it is or what it can do for you. I can write and talk and email until I’m blue in the face, so to speak, but TRYING it and FEELING it is what will truly make a difference in your life. So, what have you got to lose? Nothing but that box around your beliefs.
In Healing with Gemstones – Kyanite Part 1 I told you all the ways I use Kyanite to cleanse jewelry, spaces and other stones. But, Kyanite has a whole lot of benefits as a healing stone as well. Melody of “Love is in the Earth” says “The energy of kyanite is unlimited in application, making it one of the very best attunement stones.”
Kyanite is one of the great All chakra healing stones. It’s good on any of the chakras, placed all around the body and on as well. The healing properties of kyanite are plentiful so I’ll break them down by category.
Use kyanite by holding in each hand during meditation, wear it on the body as jewelry or lay it on the body as in “laying on of stones.” Using intention with stones always makes the healing stronger. For instance, if your goal is to heal an issue you’ve been having with a friend, you may hold the intention in your mind that the kyanite will aid you during your meditation in seeing the truth in the whole situation.
Here are some more ways to work with kyanite.
Kyanite for spiritual healing:
Aligns and balances all chakras automatically and IMMEDIATELY.
With intention by the user kyanite can also align all the subtle bodies simultaneously; emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual, ethereal and astral.
Calming effect to the whole being
Stimulates psychic awareness and abilities on all levels.
Calmly facilitates meditation
Helps one in astral travel
Helps one in connection to their spirit guides.
Promotes dream recall and dream solving.
Balances yin and yang energies.
Dispels energy blockages
Aids in one’s transition through death into the spiritual realm.
Assists one in detaching from the idea of blind fate. Shows how the part played by the self in creating causes and the measures required to balance the past.
Facilitates in the ascension process by drawing the light body down into the physical realm and connecting the higher mind to the highest frequencies.
Black kyanite spiritually grounds the body, especially when using black kyanite with blue kyanite. Together they align and ground spontaneously and immediately.
Kyanite for emotional healing:
Helps to instill compassion
Induces one to persevere in activities and situations which would generally reduce one’s strength. Kyanite provides a gentle yet stimulating energy and supports one in the continuation of projects.
Dispels confusion from emotional, mental and spiritual issues.
Kyanite for psychological healing:
Encourages one to speak their truth, cutting through fears and blockages.
Opens throat chakra, encouraging self-expression and communication.
Aids in cutting through ignorance.
Opens one to spiritual and psychological truth.
Slices through confusion and dispels blockages, illusion, anger, frustration and stress.
Stimulates the higher mind, increases the capacity for linear and logical through.
Kyanite for physical healing:
Treats muscular disorder
Thyroid/parathyroids/throat issues (especially blue kyanite)
Brain, supports the cerebellum and the motor responses of the body
Natural pain reliever
Lowers blood pressure
Helps to release excess weight
Helps restore Ki (life force energy) to the physical body and it’s organs.
Stone for Healers – From all the spiritual healing uses one can see what a strong stone kyanite is for healers, people who meditate and people wanting to move forward on their spiritual path. However, kyanite, being mostly common in the blue form is also excellent for all pursuits generating from the throat chakra, such as for strengthening ones voice for public speaking, teaching or performing.
I hope this inspires some of you to get some kyanite and play with it in your daily life. Please email or comment if you have any questions on exactly how to work with kyanite in your own life.
Pamela told me she’s having trouble with pain in her right arm. Her doctors told her, after multiple appointments, that there was nothing they could do for her. They said she would have to just get used to the pain and use over the counter pain relievers.
When I got to her arm, I asked her who she felt she was giving too much to lately. She said she’s been taking care of her in-laws. They had come for a few months to stay and had been doing a lot for them. I was drawn mostly to her elbow. When I put my finger on the spot where it hurt the most, she cried out “that’s it!” I had the right spot. Immediately I felt a great deal of sadness come out through me from her elbow.
The Life – It was basically a Cinderella story. Her in-laws were an older couple in the life I saw as well. They needed help on their land so they adopted a pre-teen girl (Pamela). They worked her and were very hard on her. She did not comprehend why. She had a bit of the victim mentality in this life. She was very confused by their anger and hatred of her. I felt it was very old karmic ties and we were not to know at this time the whole story of why. I felt she had wronged them long ago and this is some vengeance on their part to help them all learn. I felt as if they were abusive to her and actually badly injured her arm at the elbow. I saw the man grabbing Pamela’s elbow very hard and pulling her and forcing her down to the ground by that elbow. I saw him doing this over and over again, time after time when he was angry. I healed the energy from this past and sad life but felt there was still some karmic issues that needed to be worked out. Usually healing the energy from a difficult life, like this one, will lessen the pull of energy between the souls involved and allow for deep healing to take place.
Physical healing took place. When I checked back with her, four years later, Pamela still doesn’t have any pain in her elbow.
I was driving the other day to my therapist for a session. I go to a great MFCC who uses EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and energy medicine from Donna Eden’s book, combined in something called Energy Psychology. I very much want to learn this technique. It works wonders. I did traditional talk therapy for years with little or no progress. I’ve made more progress in the last two years with energy therapies combined than in 18 years of traditional therapies.
AGGHHH Don’t Go–
Anyway, getting off of THAT soap box, I was driving to see my therapist. Before I even left home I started having some anxiety in my body and racing thoughts in my mind. For the first time, I didn’t want to go. I’m usually eager to go and work on my inner thoughts and self but not this time. The thought of calling and canceling went through my mind more than once. “But I can’t,” I thought, “I’ll be charged for the session anyway.” (stress!) I kept driving.
The Right Questions –
Finally I asked myself the right question, “why am I feeling this way?” The answer was pretty easy, we’ve been working on some pretty deep stuff, long-term stuff, and today was the big daddy of getting rid of THE big defense mechanism that I’d used to protect myself most of my life. Part of me really wanted to get rid of this defense mechanism once and for all and PART of me didn’t. I knew right there and then I had to go. I tell all my clients, “when you don’t want to come to me is when you need to come the most.” It’s no different for me. I went and it was GREAT! We knocked it out of the ballpark. And, by the time I left I felt wonderful, lighter, less encumbered with past waste.
So, why does our mind do this to us? Why do we constantly sabotage ourselves when things are finally going well?
You know sabotage, it’s when you are doing something that is good for you, like, lets say, finally going to the gym. Then once you are going and doing great, you stop going or even injure yourself so you no longer have to go. The truth is, that your mind doesn’t think of the good thing (exercise) as good. Your mind thinks of it as bad. It doesn’t have to make sense, in fact, most of the time, common sense has nothing to do with the belief systems our mind has created. Somehow through life, your mind decided that exercise is bad or unhealthy and you will not do it. So, every time you try to add an exercise routine to your life, your mind somehow sabotages it. The belief system must be changed BEFORE you will be successful at adding exercise to your life. This is just one example, there are many. If exercise is not your issue, I’m sure if you sit and think for a minute you can come up with at least ONE way that your mind sabotages you in a positive goal that you have. If you can’t come up with one, I can help.
Why? Ohhhh, the pain of it all!
Why does out mind do this to us? Simple, our minds are set up to help us succeed! Yes, succeed! Our mind is going to help us create situations and behaviors thorough out life that will reinforce our beliefs, no matter what, even if our beliefs are the ones that are hurting us. The mind will not distinguish between good and bad thoughts. Just like the body does not distinguish between good and bad stress, stress is stress, thoughts are thoughts. Many times, in the past, there was a good reason for the behavior to be created but it no longer serves you as an adult.
Good Example –
For instance, lets say a child is raised in an verbally abusive home. The child finds out that when they are sick, the parent leaves them alone more and even can be a bit compassionate to them during that time. This situation reinforces the child to be sick often and to think of in their mind that being sick actually protects them in life. They have no idea consciously they are doing this or that this thought has been created and will now stay as one of their lifelong beliefs. But, the thought process can actually cause illness in the body to reinforce the child’s desire to be safe. Get it? Overall this is not a healthy belief pattern to have but it worked for the child when they needed it when they were young. But, how’s that working now that they are an adult with a job and a family? Not so good.
Help is Here!! Ta Dah!
Reiki works on all four levels; mental, emotional, spiritual and physical.
On the Mental level Reiki can help us to remove the old belief and put in the new one. Instead of “Being sick keeps me safe” we put in “I am safe” and “I feel GREAT!”
On the emotional level Reiki can help release the stress that you feel from this issue and release the negative emotions that you’ve been carrying around; fear, anger, vulnerability, etc. and help you feel better overall, lighter, happier and finally at peace.
On the spiritual level Reiki, by helping you release all these negative beliefs , also connects you to your personal higher power and then allows you to follow your true spiritual path without all the DRAMA! NO MORE DRAMA! Reiki also helps one to forgive others, themselves and their creator for spiritual advancement and peace in their lives.
On the Physical level Reiki can help release the blockages in the nervous system, to be free from these issues FOREVER!
None of us make sense –
We all do this! Some more than others. But, overall, all of our minds do this. We struggle for years trying to figure out why we don’t lose weight, why we are always sick, why we cant find love. When we need to be focusing on the thoughts that are causing the actions. It is not hopeless. There are many great therapies out there that help with these specific issues. We cannot heal ourselves until we heal our beliefs. Reiki is just one way to help you heal your beliefs. I also use the modalities of; hypnotherapy, IEH®, Karuna Reiki® and Touch for Health to help my clients heal these belief patterns. It still takes time, it took time to make them. But, it works, you feel the progress every time you leave a session. And as long as you keep working at it, you will heal your belief patterns, your life and ultimately the sabotage.
Call me if you’d like to start this amazing journey with my help. I’d love to be by your side as you rediscover the real you and the real life you could be living!

Having two boys can sometimes be difficult for a peaceful mom like me who is doing her best to spread Love and Light around the world. My boys are very active and very much into playing war, ninja, and all games about fighting and pretend killing even though I never encouraged it at all. I see it as roll-playing that is important for them to play out otherwise they’d suppress those feelings. More on that in another blog. However, sometimes this peaceable mom just can’t take it.
When the boys picked up on the “Slug Bug” game a while back, it got to be too much for me to take. The slugging each other, the yelling that came with it, the wining and fighting, all in a small space, nope, I couldn’t take it and stay in my loving space at the same time. So, I quickly put a stop to the slug bug game and created a new one. I’ve since found, not surprising, that other people play “my” version too. How intuitive of them.
PLAY HUG BUG
We now play “Hug Bug” and they actually DO IT! We drive along and each call out the bug and color of the bug we see. We keep track, most of the time it’s an estimate, and when we get out of the car or when we remember they “owe” me hugs. Again, THEY DO IT! Amazingly, they like it. We all get more hugs, no more fighting or slugging about VW’s in the back of the car and we all spread a little more love around. It’s been slightly more peaceful in my car ever since. Give it a try if you have little active ones in your back seat.
This is the first blog I’ve written about gemstones. I’ll be writing about using stones and crystals to heal yourself and others. I’ve decided to start with gemstones that work well for all seven chakras and the one dearest to my heart, Kyanite. Kyanite comes mainly from Brazil but I also have some that came from Africa. The most common color I’ve seen is the blue-white but it also comes in pink, green, yellow, gray, orange and black. I currently use blue, green, orange and black. The appearance of kyanite is a striated, bladed crystal that can at times be transparent or opaque and pearlized. To me it looks like a mica formation and in raw form is just as delicate as a mica type formation.
It’s amazing to me when I talk to people about kyanite, no one seems to know what it is. Even store owners do not always know what they have when they have a piece of kyanite up for sale. I was in a toy store on Whidby Island shopping with my family and they had a rocks and gems section for kids. I, of course, headed right for it. I found a nice sized piece of kyanite sitting there with medium-sized chunks of rose quartz and sodalite and some other more commonly found rocks. I got a $30 piece of kyanite for $11 because they had no idea what a great stone they had there. Well, one conversation with me about stones and you will know what kyanite is and how to use it. My clients know how passionate I am about this particular gem of the earth.
As a healer, kyanite is one of the “must have” stones in my opinion. Kyanite doesn’t need clearing or cleansing like other stones. But, I like to clean and clear it now and again to show my kyanite love and appreciation and to infuse intention with the energy I work with it in. Over time, stones pick up energies from our bodies, our surroundings, our computers, electromagnetic energy, etc. They can get clogged and need to be cleaned. If they do not get cleared regularly they will stop being able to heal because they get so trapped in the murky energy, similar to a city covered in smog. They are doing their job by clearing and healing our energies, we need to do our job and keep them clean. (I’ll go into how to clean them, other than with kyanite, in another blog.) It does not accumulate or retain any negative energy.
If you think like a healer, then you can think of all sorts of ways to use this stone. But, I’ll help you out a bit here:
Jewelry – I have kyanite placed by my jewelry to help keep my rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces all clean of energy so when I go to wear them again, they are fresh of all energies they may have picked up from me the last time I wore them. If, for instance, I had a bad day the last time I wore a fluorite necklace, it may retain that energy for me by clearing it away from my energy field and keeping it in its own energy field. Kyanite is one of the easiest ways to clear the energy fields of all stones. It’s safe for all stones. Just place the jewelry or stone near the kyanite while you sleep and wake up to wear it fresh and ready to help you another day.
Clearing jewelry you wear – I wear gemstones for healing all the time. I hang them from a long chain that no one else sees but they are doing their job on my body. I keep a kyanite hanging with them on the chain at all times so they are continually being cleared and healing my energies at their maximum ability.
Clearing a room – Place a large piece of kyanite in the middle of a room, under a table or in a safe place where it won’t be knocked around. A big enough piece of kyanite can keep a small to medium room clear of lower energies. I keep a large piece of kyanite under my Reiki table at all times to help draw energy from my client as they are releasing it. The Reiki helps with this as well, but I like to have at least three ways of cleansing, that’s just me: one of spiritual energy, one of the earth and another one I chose, such as music or herbs.
Clearing a body – I use my intuition in placing stones on a body, but with kyanite, I make sure I have at least seven good size pieces to place around my clients body and sometimes in their hands if it feels right. This, like the kyanite under the table (In case you can’t afford a huge piece which can be rather pricy) will attract the energies leaving the client, cleanse them for you and dissipate them to the higher vibrations. I do other cleansing at the end of a session but this is one of the ways I use to help in that process.
Clearing other stones – I have other pieces of kyanite that I place near stones in my home or near the stones that I am done with after a healing until I can incense them or Reiki them. I just move the pieces of kyanite around from time to time to sit near the stones I want cleared.
Clearing electromagnetic energy – When placing stones near ones computer to help clear away the electromagnetic smog, (A subtle but detectable electromagnetic field that can have an adverse effect on sensitive people. The smog is given off by electrical power lines and items such as computers, cell phones and TV’s.) it is quite simple to then place a kyanite with it to help cleanse the smog off of the other stone. I gave my husband a nice sized smokey quartz and a medium piece of kyanite to put by his computer at work since he’s on it all day. He’s not particularly sensitive like I am, but it can’t hurt, they look nice and they bring a bit of the earth inside to the office.
Healing – I’ll go into the healing properties of kyanite in part 2 because they are plentiful.
Can YOU think of something in your home you could cleanse with kyanite? Comment if you can think of something to use kyanite on.
Do you know you can Reiki dead batteries to get longer life? I have done this on multiple occasions with camera and video camera batteries.
Once my camera batteries ran out right when my son was about to receive his end of the season soccer trophy. While the game was finishing up, I ran Reiki with the power symbol on the battery for about 5 minutes. With just that five-minute Reiki session I was able to take photos of the whole team receiving their trophies! Try it, it’s a great way to amaze non believers and kids love it. This is the one thing my kids always remember, when mom charged their batteries!
Make sure the batteries are completely out. Hold the batteries in your hands and start the Reiki. Use the intention of giving it power while running the Reiki or if you are a level II Reiki use (CKR) the power symbol to charge the batteries. Use your intuition as to when they are done charging and give them a try! I haven’t tried this with a car battery yet.
DO YOU FEEL LIKE 2012 IS A HUGE, FAST MOVING, SOMETIMES VERY SCARY ROLLER COASTER RIDE?
then read on…..because TODAY, March 18th thru the 24th we are on the really high ramp of the roller coaster getting ready to plunge to the earth as Mercury conjunct with Uranus, watch out………………….
I don’t do astrology, have no idea how, but I do enjoy reading a good astrology report now and again. My friend Ellen turned me onto Tom Lescher’s Facebook page and he does videos on You Tube that are great too. So far he’s cool and pretty right on for how I’ve been feeling lately. I always go with my intuition and don’t always know what’s going on with the planets to back up my feelings until I read a report like this one on Tom’s Facebook page by Palona Somrak.
I’ve been talking to a lot of my clients lately about the feeling of being on a roller coaster. The energy this year, 2012, is fast and furious. We are being tested over and over again. We are feeling the energy push down upon us, putting pressure on us, making life more difficult and/or more busy than usual. Why is it doing this you ask? So we can LEARN! It’s all good!
The roller coaster I get from one of my favorite movies with Steve Martin, “Parenthood”. Grandma in the movie says about a roller coaster ride to Steve Martin’s character, “You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn’t like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it.”
Back then, I personally didn’t like being on roller coasters that much. I was more like the Steve Martin character. But, lately, with my trust and faith in the Divine, and some life experience, I like it and am grateful for it. I can now see it for what it is, as I’m moving up and down those waves of terror. While on the roller coaster we may get sick to our stomachs, we may throw up our hands and scream with joy for the wild ride or we may be apathetic and ignore it all. It’s up to us. It really is. We are in a time of major change. We can either fight the change, try to ignore it and pretend it isn’t going on and make things harder on ourselves and those around us or we can throw our hands up, surrender to the change and scream with joy, or fright. Either way, the surrender is what’s important.
How do we do this you may ask?
Good question. All I can tell you is how I do this and hopefully it will help you. When a challenge comes up that makes you angry, frustrated, stressed or even furious, STOP YOURSELF.
Stop – Recognizing the behavior is the first step to stopping it. If you can stop and recognize it then you can….
Look at it – instead of pushing it down inside you where you’ve always put it because it is socially unacceptable, look at it. Everyone in our lives is a mirror for us, good or bad. I say there is no bad because looking at ourselves in a way that will create change is hard but still VERY GOOD! THAT is the roller coaster.
Feel it…..what does it feel like, why is it so scary and horrible? Is it really that bad? Did it serve you when you were young but don’t need it anymore? Once past this point you can then…..
Accept it and realize that it really isn’t so bad. Usually we have these defense mechanisms set up to protect us from something when we are younger. Many times they served us well then, but are not needed in that capacity now.
Thank it, thank the socially unacceptable behavior for helping you all these years, let it know you no longer need it and are choosing to move on in a new and healthier fashion. Surround it in Love and Light and Reiki energy. Allow it to move to the Light and be transformed into Love once again. Gratitude is an important part of all spiritual processes! Practice it regularly!
Stop denying it. Denial will get you NO WHERE and fast, like being on the merry go round. Denial will get you doing this again, in another body, for a whole other life until you do get it. Do you really want to do this same lesson, this same life all over again? wouldn’t you rather move on to another adventure!?
Healthy Activities – Let go of the activities that do not serve your higher purpose (I won’t list those, YOU know what they are!) and add in activities that do, such as; meditation, gratitude, prayer, Reiki circle and Reiki sessions, exercise, tummy breathing, journaling, reading uplifting books, etc. Do these activities with an intention to LET GO of the behaviors that no longer serve you. With intention added, you’ll be surprised how much this helps.
Go for Reiki– Call me, someone on my links page or someone you trust who does Reiki, IEH or energy healing. A qualified practitioner can help you release the really deep and tough stuff. If you do not feel better after an energy healing session then look for a new practitioner. You want to feel better each and every time you leave. I go to others regularly for help with MY tough stuff. They help so much with the really difficult denials.
Take a Reiki class– Empower yourself, learn how to heal yourself, your family, your pets and your friends! I teach all these techniques in my sessions, classes and circles.
You may change the order of these steps to suit you but this is basically how I do it each and every time I come up against a behavior of mine that I no longer wish to work with, (anger, denial, jealousy, guilt, hurting others in any way, lack of self-confidence, frustration, impatience, etc.). the behaviors that no longer serve me. Yes, I’m human, ALL HEALERS ARE HUMAN. We still have Unbuddha-like moments. How else would we be able to help others if we did not go through the process ourselves?
Try it, see if it doesn’t make the roller coaster a bit (or a lot) more fun. Make the journey an adventure! Please comment and let me know how it’s working for you. And, call me or email me if you need some support in the process. THAT IS WHAT I DO! I support you along your personal healing journey.

Astrology Forecast for March, 2012
by Palona Somrak
“The month of March will be a lot easier for you if you just pretend that you have boarded the high-speed bullet train that gets you to your destination at hundreds of miles per hour (whether you are late or not!). This is a month where our nervous systems are undergoing a great cosmic cleanse. It is an opportunity to rid ourselves of all the shaky, old, outworn mental patterns that are no longer serving us. Beyond that, we will have an opportunity to purge immature emotional patterns lingering from lifetimes gone by that are preventing us from fully realizing our potential.
read more...Powerful days of change this month will be 2, 3, 7-8, 12-13, 15, 18-24, and 29-30.”
