Happy Chinese New Year!

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

Blessings to all my clients, students, blog readers!!

I’m coming at you for Chinese New Year because I’m pretty much usually behind a month when it comes to the new year so I start celebrating about this time. It seems January is usually, for me, catch up from the past year and February I really start feeling like it’s whatever year it actually is now. Plus, my son and I were traveling for the holidays so we weren’t here to send out my gratitude to all of you. So, thank you for being patient in many ways.

I wanted to take this opportunity to express to you my gratitude to all of you for continuing to follow Rain Shadow Reiki despite the big changes we’ve had in the past 18 months. We shut down for six months completely since I was pretty much in bed for about five months after the crash we were in. We have slowly but surely been getting up and running again, despite or because of deepest trauma, we need and work with our Reiki even more now.

Everything is very much harder now in all ways and all levels, but every time I think about not doing Reiki, not teaching Reiki, I can’t even imagine it. It’s not even an option in my soul path. Reiki is healing me, my Reiki people are healing me, YOU ALL are healing me. How can I NOT do Reiki and share it. Simple, I can’t. So, at whatever level I can continue, with great help from my fellow healers and students, I continue. And, I’m so grateful that you have hung in there with me. Thank you.

Rain Shadow Reiki is now Rain Shadow Reiki Energy Healing Center because we are more people working here and more energy healing modalities being incorporated. We do and teach Reiki, low level laser for Reflex Integration, intuitive abilities, healing and reading and sound and color healing. Plus more.

We will be slowly but surely revamping our website to include all the modalities we work with and the new healers who are working with me. All in Divine time.

We just want you to know we are here to support you on your spiritual and healing path if you feel drawn to work with us.

If you want a long distance Reiki Psychic Healing session, spirit guide reading, past life reading or a Negative Energy Clearing (Recommended FIRST!) Please call or email us to schedule a session. We look forward to getting to know more of you who have been reading, but not yet calling.

So blessings to you all in this New Year, may it bring much Love and Light to you and Divine Grace as you navigate this amazing school house.

Vision Boards for Girls Night Out!!

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

Our whole group tonight being creative, having fun and feeling great joy at being together in this process.  Having help and support from the other ladies in the group was a HUGE help to me.

In our quest to have more fun included in our healing journey, our Girls Night Out group (Mystic Sisters) met this week for some ‘cuttin it up!!” Magazines that is.  My industrious students have been dropping off magazines to me all month-long.  We had a whole room full!  The ladies came in and didn’t even want to eat, they were so excited to get started on their vision board, they headed straight for the magazines and started rifling through the pages searching for inspiration.  It was the darndest thing.  I had to almost pull them away to get them to eat dinner.  A quick dinner, some fun get to know you games and we were back at it.

“I can’t stop looking at my ‘graduation card!’ It’s infused with so much lightness and love from everyone.  Whatever you decide to do for the next event, I hope it involves using our own creativity. (The vision board process) Sure did bring everyone to life and I believe it boosts our own confidence that we can indeed CREATE!” Pamela Ziemann  , Mystic Sister and author

 

Creating a vision board is probably one of the most valuable visualization tools available to you. This powerful tool serves as your image of the future – a tangible representation of where you are going. It represents your dreams, your goals, and your ideal life.

Lauren was the first to tackle the magazines and finished TWO boards in one evening.  WOW, I barely got my one done.

 Because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation-by representing your goals with pictures and images-you will actually strengthen and stimulate your emotions…  and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activates the Law of Attraction. The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words,” certainly holds true here.’ Jack Canfield

 

Reiki & Vision Boarding

I wouldn’t be earning my keep if I didn’t teach a Reiki lesson with each evening we have right?!!  Good thing to me, REIKI IS FUN!!

Vision boards are all about having a physical visual manifestation right in front of you to look at regularly to help focus your thoughts, emotions and beliefs on creating your vision in your physical life.  Being able to SEE it right in front of you helps the manifesting process which is stronger with emotions and visualizations.  Even the process of creating the vision board is important and stirs up the universe into aiding you in your quest because you are putting time, effort, emotion and hopefully FUN into the process.  We put so much fun into our process, we know Divine is helping us manifest our visions.  We also put a whole bunch of REIKI into our boards!!

What does the Reiki bring to the table when vision boarding?

  • Reiki helps us to be more grounded in making decisions about which pictures to cut out and which ones to leave, saving us time and frustration.

    Pamela was making a very unique and creative graduation card for a friend of hers in a pizza box that she had carried as a prop in one of her plays.  It turned out so amazing.  Hopefully she can give him this card before he reads my blog.  LOL

  • Bringing in our Reiki at the beginning helped us to be more cohesive as a group and work together to help and support each other through the process.  Everyone was sharing clips, cutting out things for other people, shouting out ideas, it was beautiful.
  • Reiki helped to set the energy in the space for lightness, community support and fun, before we even started.  I always ‘set space’ for any Reiki event and for Mystic Sisters it’s all about love, support and JOY!  (Setting space is about the intention of the feel of the energy in the space.  I make sure it’s clean and clear, safe and sacred but then add another intention specific for each event.  For this event, community, love and joy. The Reiki energy follows my intention)
  • Reiki brings in our Reiki Guides to help with intuition to know what vision of our future to go for, or which theme is right for us at this time.  Before I started, I really had no idea what I was going to create.  I just followed the Reiki and it turned out perfect for me.
  • Reiki brings in spiritual power to help us have the confidence and belief that we can in deed create that which we are setting out to create.

    Lauren was creative AND productive, she even had pictures on the back.  They beautifully expressed her vision.

  • Reiki helps us to be more creative and heal any issues around being creative.
  • Reiki helps us to take creative risks that we wouldn’t normally take while doing a process like this in front of a large group of people.
  • Reiki helps us to think less, and act more intuitively getting the job done from a higher level of thinking.
  • Reiki helps us to create our big picture vision, not our internal subconscious chaos.

…and so much more.  That’s just what I came up with in this moment. Can you think of any others and share them with us in comments!?!

Dedicated Ladies

This group was totally in to this project.  From beginning to end (midnight) they

Amber, Lisa and Lauren were my late nighters.  They were determined to finish tonight no matter what it took.  Me too, I'm a late nigher in general so I stayed to finish.  You could also call me slow, but I prefer intentional.  Smiles.

were focused but at the same time truly enjoying the process and each others help and company.  I heard more than a few times “This is so much fun!”  That’s all that mattered to me, fun was the goal and fun we had.  My guides, my girls and I were happy vision boarders.

Make Your Own Vision Board

If you have never done a vision board, here is my basic instructions on how I do it.  As with everything, I’m sure there are tons of ways, this is just one of many.  Bring in your Reiki or if you do not have Reiki yet, pray for Divine Guidance and go for it.  Allow yourself to feel joy throughout the process.  If you do not feel joy, take a break and start again later when you are ready.

  • Gather a whole bunch of magazines, don’t discriminate, you never know where that  favorite photo or quote will come from.  We were all quite surprised what kind of magazines we found some of our most stunning photos.

    1. Gather a whole bunch of magazines.  Students brought them, I went to all the thrift stores in town getting free magazines and the library too.  I got a huge assortment.  don't be shy to ask people, most people are happy to put them to good use.

  • Bring in your Reiki and your Reiki guides to be with you through the whole process, bringing you spiritual power, protection and support.
  • Ask your Reiki Guides to help you with your vision, what is most important for you to SEE at this time.
  • Go through magazines quickly without too much thought.  Make decisions fast and just tear out the pages that you are drawn to without judgement.  Just go, go , go.
  • Tear out photos and words that you are drawn to and pile them up, move on to the next page or magazine until you have a nice size pile and FEEL ready to move onto the next stage.
  • Clear, clean and prepare your space for the next process, cutting.  Get scissors, glue and poster board to be ready to lay out our rough draft.

    After we had torn out all the photos and words we wanted, we moved to a clean table area to take the next step.  We threw the trash on the floor to keep the work space clean and creative.  We had a pile area that we didn't want to use, but thought others might want, we called it the pilfer pile.  I got some good stuff out of the pilfer pile for my board.  It was great working together.

  • Cut up the photos and words to get a basic idea as to how things will fit or not fit.
  • Make quick intuitive decisions, don’t think too much, work with your Higher Self and your heart, not your head.
  • Get a basic layout and start gluing stuff down.  Know it will turn out different from you plan, but perfect as it is.
  • Glue down the background first, then start with the words and little stuff, trust your intuition all the way through.  Divine knows your bigger picture, your true souls vision, it will appear naturally if you don’t stress or think too much.
  • Just Say No!  Be aware of the ‘big picture’ and what you are truly drawn to.  You may have to make some tough decisions, get rid of a photo you really like, but that just doesn’t fit the big vision.  A cluttered or chaotic vision board may reflect what is going on inside of you now, not necessarily what you want to create in your life in the future.

    Lisa said my board felt very calm and peaceful.  That is what I was going for without really knowing it.  My mind has been quite chaotic with some intensive mental healing I've been doing lately, peaceful is what I'm really ready for.  I'm putting this next to my bed so I can look at it before I go to sleep.

  • Have fun and just allow the process to unfold.
  • Place the vision board where you will see it multiple times per day.  A very powerful time is right before bed, so maybe put it near your bed so you can look at it right before bed time and right when you wake up.  These are strong hypnotic state periods in your mind and you are very likely to take in this visual information more easily into your subconscious mind.

I had so much fun, I’m thinking of tackling this project with my Reiki kids group too.  Go for it, it’s a powerful and positive process.  Well worth the mess on the floor.

Let me know how it goes for you!!

Reiki Blessings,

Playing Spiritual Games Safely and for Fun!

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

Rain Shadow Reiki’s New Spiritual Community Activity!!  GNO!!

I’ve talked in the past about how my guides are telling me that now, at this time, it is vitally important to the healing of our people and our earth that we gather in local spiritual groups.  If people are not part of a church, then forming or finding a spiritual group is essential to our spiritual evolution.

We evolve faster and more easily when working closely with other spiritual people of like mind.  I have experienced this first hand in my own Reiki community and can see the direct effects in my own progression.  So, once again, especially if you’ve been getting your own messages to find other spiritual people close to you, JUST DO IT!!  It is not always easy meeting new people and working closely with others, but it is highly worthwhile.

Our Reiki Communities New Group — Meet Our Mystic Sisters!

My guides encouraged me to start a Ladies Night Out group to bring more fun to our small Reiki community.  GNO was my guides idea, but I liked it and got it going with our first group activity, GAME NIGHT!!

After playing some ‘get-to-know-you’ games and filling our tummies with delicious healthy food, we voted on a name for the group and Mystic Sisters won by a slim margin.  My guides gave me this name first so it doesn’t surprise me at all that it won the vote.  So our group is called the Mystic Sisters.  The sisterhood theme was a big one as 5 out of the 7 possible names we voted on, had sisters in it.

Playing Spiritual Games in a Safe Way

The spiritual part of our evening this month was to learn how to play spiritual divining games in a safe and accurate manner.  As a child, I had a higher knowing (not that I knew what a higher knowing was at that time) that Ouija Boards and other such games could be unsafe and possibly bring in darkness.  I still have this feeling and have not ever wanted to even touch one, let alone play with one.

However, I do not feel that all spiritual games are this way.  I feel the people who create the game and HOW it is played and instructed to be played makes a big difference.  I feel some games themselves are not safe and I feel it’s possible that the misguided usage of some of these games by people who didn’t know any better or possibly used them for dark needs have over time left an imprint of lower energy that isn’t what I want to be playing with.  Just my opinion/feeling.

The Enchanted Spellboard group, a lively group with more questions than time.

So I searched for similar games that I could feel good about.  I quickly found a series of games made by a husband and wife psychic team who had the same idea as me; wanting beautiful spiritual divining games that were of Love and Light with very detailed instructions as to how to work with these kinds of games safely.  I found Psychic Circle, Enchanted Spellboard and the Truth Fairy games all by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.  I tried them out ahead of time with some friends and had lots of fun and felt the whole time surrounded and protected by Divine Love and Light.

Intention & Prayer is Everything in Energy

Of course, prior to starting the game, we brought in our Reiki (Gassho prayer of intention), sent Reiki to the games themselves, blessing them with the Power Symbol, cleansing them with the Mental/Emotional Symbol, and energizing them with Divine Energy with the Power Symbol again (CKR Sandwich).  We cleaned and energized ourselves the same way prior to this and then said a prayer of intention calling in the Highest and Most Sacred Order of Reiki Guides of Love and Light to be with us and guide us.

Setting Space

As the host and Reiki Master in the group, I also set space prior to everyone coming over.  This means I blessed, cleansed and energized the entire home before the event.  I do this before every  event at my home.  For each event I have a different intention depending upon what the purpose of the event is.  For game night, it was Fun, Joy and Sisterly Spiritual Love!  The ‘vibe’ in the room was definitely joyful!  I teach ways to do this, but that’s another blog.  (To be continued.)

Got Reiki?  NO

If you do not have Reiki you can still pray with all of these intentions, state them out loud for emphasis and KNOW and BELIEVE that you are surrounded by Divine and working with only guides and spirits who walk in the White Light of God, and you’ll be good to go.  Put your heart, some visualization, words and intention into this process.  Don’t rush through it, it’s important, take your time and FEEL the difference it makes.

Rebel Danger

What happens if you don’t do this?  Well, sometimes nothing.  But, sometimes, if your intentions are not strong and clear, or you forget to do them at all, lower vibrational spirits who do not have your best intentions in mind can bring in wrong or misleading information, silly or joking information or even dark information.  This is not only a waste of time and confusing, it can be dangerous as these spirits could attach to you and stick around.  Believe me, you do not want this.  They can wreak havoc with your life, your health, your sleep and attract more darkness into it.  (If you feel this has happened to you, I know a trusted healer who can help.  Call or email me for information.)

It is just too easy to say a prayer of intention and NOT end up with this kind of energy around you by being in a state of Love and Light and holding Divine close to your heart at all times.  Especially if you are playing these games with others, you owe it to them and yourself to do it safely.  O.k., lecture over.

It’s All In the Question

With practice we found out that how you phrase your question is very important as well as having excitement and curious energy helps to bring in movement to the board faster and easier.  The more fun we had, the better it worked.  It was so much fun, some of the sisters wanted to play these games again next month.  Yep, it was cool!  At one point I asked if it would be in my highest good to go to Sedona this summer for my girlfriend’s birthday celebration.  The Psychic Circle board first went to GO and then landed on FIRE.  I laughed and said, “Ok, I can go, but it’s going to be very hot.”  When I told my friend this, she said that she’s a Leo and Leo is a FIRE sign.  Ok, two possible meanings.  Either way, Sedona is a good idea for me anytime.  No, I didn’t need the game to tell me that, my intuition is pretty darn good, but it was a very fun way to get an answer.

WARNING: Please do not do any kind of spiritual work while partaking in drugs or alcohol.

Mystic Sister is new and just getting started but my guides give me great ideas all the time.  I can’t wait to see where we go with this.

If you are interested in Reiki, please read my website and/or feel free to contact me with any pertinent questions via email or phone.  If you live on the Olympic Peninsula and are interested in learning more about Mystic Sisters, please give me a call.  I’d love to hear from you.

Now go out and find a new way to bring fun and joy into your spiritual path!!

Reiki Blessings,

Josslyn
