Reiki Kids Class

About once a year I teach a Reiki Kids Class, usually close to summer break.  This is guided by the children themselves and Divine, of course.  When they are ready, they appear and tell me or their Reiki parent and I book a class.  This class, this year, was my youngest group yet.  The program I have is written for  6 and up and I have taught teen classes as well.  This class was mostly 8 and under all the way to age 2.  It was total joyful chaos and I loved it.  I believe they did too.

Sharing Love

Beautiful Isabel, pure love!

Young children have a natural affinity for Reiki.  They see it and feel it as part of their normal every day state of being. Of course, I’m teaching children who are being raised by Reiki moms and dads, so they tend to be sensitive to energy and already in many cases, doing healing work without being taught.  They just do it as their natural life process.  Sometimes it’s the children who motivate the parents to follow through and take a Reiki class as well.  It’s beautiful to watch and even more beautiful if this pretense to love is nurtured into their older years and kept as part of who they are as they grow up.

Many kids will forget that they saw angels and fairies as kids or that they used to lay their hands on their siblings or parents for healing.  But, if the children see their parents doing this throughout their childhood and young adult years, they are much more likely to keep these abilities and work with them in their adult life.  This is, I believe, what will change our world for the better.  Love and sharing it daily.  To me, and these kids, Reiki is Divine Love.  And love heals.

Attunements on Children

Amber, one of my Reiki Master/Teacher students and mom to some of the Reiki kids, helped with six of the attunements and I did six too.  Kaia and Allie get their Reiki I attunements first.

When attuning children to Reiki, it’s much to me like adults.  I show the kids what the attunement is like first.  I explain to them that this is a sacred ceremony to ‘hook’ them up to the special Reiki healing from our Higher Power.    (We talk about what Higher Power means at the beginning of class.  Most of the kids prefer the word LOVE.)  And, I always make sure it is the choice of the child to be attuned.  Even the two-year olds have been talking with their mom and dad and me prior to the class to make sure this is what they want.  (I do this with telepathy but there are many other ways. reading books about Reiki, Doing Reiki with them prior to the class so they are totally aware of what it is, body language and just simply

It may look busy but the room was actually amazingly quiet.  Performing attunements in this large group of families was quite rewarding.  Also, doing side by side attunements with my friend and co-teacher was something I'll not easily forget.  Blessings Amber.  Thank you for the support my friend.

listening to them and how they behave.)  If a child throws a tantrum or shows at the time of the attunement that they are not ready, listen to them.  The right time will appear for them or not, it’s all good.  Go with the flow.

With this class, after explaining the attunement and how it’s important to be very quiet and respectful to each person’s experience, they got it.  During the 12 attunements we did, which took almost an hour, the kids colored their coloring pages, but were quiet and respectful the whole entire time.  They watched and took it in and seemed to understand the full spiritual impact this ceremony had on each of us.  Watching the other children receive the attunements had a powerful impact on all of us in the room.

For some, the whole day was just too much activity.  Vaughn, who was my very first Reiki baby and attuned himself to Reiki at 8months old, got attuned again on this day by his own mom.  These are the precious stories of my life and I couldn't be more grateful to Reiki for what I get to do with my life.  TY God!

The parents told me after, how impactful that was to them, to be able to witness this Divine ritual.  In my previous classes I had done the attunements in a separate room while the kids were involved in a spiritual art project.  I wasn’t sure they would enjoy watching each of the other children being attuned or that they would be able to stay quiet for the whole hour.  I had also visualized it in different rooms before the class and saw this as guidance for how it would be best to do the attunements.  It may have been right for those classes and that time.  But, this experience was so great, I’m going to ask the kids from now on, get their buy in to the ceremony and go from there.  The kids are quite amazing, they know what’s best for them.  It’s up to us to trust them.

Reiki Freeze Tag!!  A HUGE hit!
Reiki Freeze Tag!! A HUGE hit!

After sitting for an hour being attuned, the kids were ready for some out-door play, so we played a rambunctious few games of ‘Reiki Freeze Tag’ where the kids got to take turns being the freezer and the healer.  It was chaos again, but hilarious to watch.  The game got especially exciting when my 14-year-old son was the freezer and we had three different healers, one of which was spontaneous and top-secret because no one but he knew he was the healer.  LOL, gotta love kids.  So much fun.

I’ll tell the rest of the story with photos, because they really say so much.  (more photos below)  It is my goal to continue to attune and teach children Reiki, to inspire other Reiki Teachers to do the same and to encourage families to do Reiki together.  One small step in the right direction equals one big step towards saving our people and our planet.  Love will make the difference, it always has.

The kids were eager to practice Reiki on their Sensei (Teacher) Josslyn and she loved it.  The more Reiki the better is what I always say.  Loving kid Reiki is the best.
The kids were eager to practice Reiki on their Sensei (Teacher) Josslyn and she loved it. The more Reiki the better is what I always say. Loving kid Reiki is the best.  I think they’ve got me well covered.

We now follow-up the kids Reiki class with summertime Reiki fun.  We’ll meet as often as we can to reinforce the Reiki healing they have learned so they can have real hands on practice.  But, the daily practice with their Reiki parents is the most important.  Our kids do what we do.  They watch us.  If we do Reiki, they will.  If we speak lovingly, they will too.  It’s all up to us as parents to reinforce the positive ideals, or not.  Don’t worry, Reiki will guide you along the path.  You truly are not alone in this.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Thanks as always for reading and for your loving comments,

I’m so grateful,

Josslyn

Reiki is a Choice! Congratulations to my Reiki Mens Class!!

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

First of all, I’d like to say a BIG HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to our All Mens Reiki class!!  These men put aside all fears and reservations about what Reiki MIGHT be and went for it.  And, boy, did they go for it!

My Reiki men, truly a courageous group of men.  Reiki on!!
My Reiki men, truly a courageous group of men. Reiki on!!

A couple of months ago, two of my Reiki students informed me that their husbands, and one father would like to take a Reiki class.  “Ok”, I said, “lets manifest that.”  I knew if it was meant to be, it would happen, and it did. I opened the class up to all men who would like to take the class and asked my students (who are mostly women) to talk to their partners about the class.  Four brave men showed up, plus my husband to add moral support.

Brand Spankin’ New

These men knew very little about Reiki, other than it had helped the women in their lives.  The first thing we did in class was make sure that no single man in the room had been hog tied and brought against his own free will.  Nope, everyone came on their own.  Every man who heard about the class had the choice to come or not.  These men showed up.  Not only did they show up, they gave it everything they had.  This group of men, who were unsure of themselves in a spiritual setting and unsure of Reiki, asked more questions than most of my other classes AND they even asked questions about Reiki that I didn’t know.  They are the first class to GIVE ME HOMEWORK!!  Cuddos to them.

Never Give Up, Never Surrender

All done, feeling pretty good!!
All done, feeling pretty good!! Congratulations Dan, Robert, Noel, Joe and Jacob!!  Truly open-hearted courageous men in my book!

After learning about Reiki a bit, being attuned and practicing Reiki on themselves with success all on their first day, the men started really opening up not just their curiosity but their hearts as well. By day two, they were totally into it, taking it in and even enjoying it–although, still somewhat perplexed and confused at times.

They did not give up.  They continued on fully present, fully committed and fully prepared to truly work at making this Reiki healing part of their lives.  I was so proud of them, so amazed at their commitment and desire to learn and open up and so honored to be learning as much from them as they were learning from me.  Even when parts of the class, like meeting their spirit guides, got emotional and touched their hearts in ways they didn’t expect, these men grasped the experience and allowed it, they didn’t fight it, they just accepted.  It was truly beautiful to be a part of.

Normal, Everyday Guys

These men had very little exposure to spiritual classes or events before this class.  This truly was their first experience into energy and what is possible with it.  They opened up their heart and their minds, and their crown chakras (literally) and totally went for it.  That takes a great deal of courage.

We all have choices in our lives, sometimes we don’t feel we do, but we do.  Many men had the choice to come to this class and didn’t.  The men who showed up could have come, but closed off to something totally strange and new to them, but they didn’t.  They chose to come and they chose to jump in with both feet first into the deep end and totally go for it.  Because of that, they each had their own true spiritual experience that made the class unique to them and will most likely stand out in their minds as a very important day in their spiritual growth.  Having the spiritual experience is what most of us are seeking without knowing it, if you chose to open up to it as these men did, you will get it.  Maybe not at first, maybe not what you expect, but you will get it.

Now what they do with Reiki from here on out is truly their choice.

I’m available for help after class to answer questions, hold Reiki Circles and Round Tables, but it is up to each student to DO for themselves, to ‘show up’ for themselves each and every day and actually practice their Reiki on themselves. Reiki is like anything else in this world, we have to actually DO IT in order to feel any difference in our lives.  That is a little trick Divine plays on us, we must do a certain amount for ourselves, then we’ll be met part way by miracles.  Are you ready for your Reiki miracles?

Have you done your Reiki today?

The DOING comes first, the mini miracles come later…

Much Love and Light to all of you, I’m so incredibly grateful for my Reiki community.  I am truly powered daily by Reiki and your Love!!  Thank you for your loving comments, I’m so grateful for them as well.

Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

The Spiritual Path to being a Reiki Master/Teacher -March 2015

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

PLEASE JOIN ME IN SENDING PRAYER, CONGRATULATIONS AND LOVE TO MY TWO NEW REIKI MASTER/TEACHERS, SUSAN AND AMBER!!!

We like to have fun at our Reiki classes!
We like to have fun at our Reiki classes!  Congratulations Amber and Susan!

Loving comments are much appreciated for them too!!

These two beautiful souls have very different reasons for becoming Reiki Master/Teachers, but both have walked a journey to get here and I’m so proud of them for the intuition they have trusted, the determination and the ingenuity of them to get this far.

To get to the level of Reiki Master/Teacher one has practiced, experienced and asked a lot of good questions in order to complete this part of their journey.  It takes dedication to Reiki and to themselves and their spiritual path in order to truly feel ready to go the next step.  It is a journey worthy of our respect and celebration.

The Spiritual Path to Reiki Master/Teacher

None of us has a ‘normal’ path to get up to the level of Reiki Master/Teacher, it’s unique and special to each of us.  I don’t believe there is one right way or one right time frame for anyones path for this, it’s up to us and our Creator and that is all there is.  If we are not ready, no one needs to tell us that because Divine will put road blocks or speed bumps in the road to slow us down and help us learn our lessons. We will get there if we are meant to and when we are meant to, and not a moment sooner.  It’s all quite beautiful and quite frustrating and painful at the same time. But in the end, when we do get there, we can look back at our trials and tribulations and feel fulfilled about the work we have done, what we have let go and how far we have come as a human learning great lessons in small ways.

I have watched this process with many students, other healers and myself as well.  I have learned to trust it, go with the flow and enjoy much of it.  Having the higher knowing that nothing we go through is wasted, everything has a purpose; helps a lot.  We may not know that purpose, but our Higher Power does and I’ve had enough evidence along the way to know that and it helps my faith.  There are many ways to learn this, Reiki is just one of them, but a truly beautiful one.  A way that connects us to our Higher Power and helps us to move forward on our spiritual path in a BIG WAY one.  A very worthwhile one.

Thank you for reading, praying for my amazing students and myself and for following along.  I so appreciate each and every comment I get and pray for all my readers as well each and every night.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

CONGRATULATIONS NEW REIKI II PRACTITIONERS!! April 2015

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

What a perfect way to start the week, with a Reiki class!!  I attuned four new Reiki II Practitioners yesterday, Beth, Stephanie, Kimberly and Naomi, and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Congratulations Naomi, Beth, Kimberly and Stephanie!!  Reiki II Practitioners April 6th, 2015
Congratulations Naomi, Beth, Kimberly and Stephanie!! Reiki II Practitioners April 6th, 2015

There are so many ways to work with Reiki in our lives to make our lives more spiritual.  To actually work with this human body as a spiritual tool, making our lives more fulfilling every single day.  All four of these women are so different and have such different paths in life, it’s always exciting for me to watch their journey unfold as time goes by.  All four of these women say they want to work with their Reiki as healers, but what does that mean?  We don’t know yet.  There is no one way to be a healer.  They will most likely each carve their own path and be unique in their healing choices.  But, knowing they want to do more with their Reiki, knowing they want to take more classes, gives them a goal, an insight and a possibility to work towards.  It’s very exciting as long as they allow for Divine changes in the path, and I do believe these ladies are out of the box thinkers and will do that.  I can’t wait to find out.

One of the many great parts of my path as a Reiki Teacher is to be a small part of this journey and watch my students grow and change and have those ‘A-ha’ moments that are so miraculous.  I am so grateful to be a Reiki Teacher and to be a part of these remarkable women’s lives.  Thank you to all who chose me as your teacher, thank you for allowing me to witness and play along side.  I truly LOVE what I do and you all make it extraordinary!  Take your Reiki hands and stretch the box, see what is possible ladies!!

Reiki Blessings to you all, Josslyn

WE LOVE REIKI ! REIKI II CLASS FEBRUARY 2015

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

A BIG HUGE CONGRATULATION TO MY REIKI II CLASS THIS WEEKEND!!!  Karen, Jayne, Stevie, Jeanne and Rena all showed up and blew me away with their open hearts, their dedication to daily self practice and they desire to learn more, more, more, about Reiki and healing.

Reiki II EditBarb3-15,1This is a class of ladies who really know the benefits of practicing their Reiki on themselves, their loved ones and their pets.  In a few short months of having Reiki in their hands, they have done a whole lot of practice and seen the benefits to it also.  When you DO the Reiki, you will FEEL, SEE, and EXPERIENCE the magic in your life.

 

Here are some testimonials from them and their Reiki recipients:

“Hi Josslyn,    I was working in the yard for three hours.  Usually, I can resolve my lower back pain with walking, but this time that did not help.  What did help was Karen (his wife and my Reiki student) running the Reiki to my lower back.  It felt like a hot pad was applied, and after about 30 minutes, all the pain was gone. I was amazed by the outcome.  I am looking forward to your Reiki I men’s class coming up soon.  I am grateful for your teaching, devotion, and compassion of Reiki.   Thanks, Dan M. from Sequim, WA”

Reiki II EditBarb3-15,2
My classes are such animal loves, Mandy LOVES it and gets a ton of Reiki and attention from all the ladies. She often steals the show, as in this picture.

“Thanks Josslyn.  It shows how great a teacher you are.  You always said to us that we need to work on it (practicing at Reiki).  Also, doing meditation daily is addictive for me and I feel it certainly helps the Reiki to flow in daily.  Now, having the symbols will make it even flow in better.

I do recommend you (as a Reiki teacher) because of your natural empathy and steadfast dedication to Reiki.  It is not for people who just dabble in this and that.  Reiki is life changing and I feel is something that brings out our spirituality even more.  It definitely resonates with me.   It is definitely helping my husband and me to ascend and I am seeing it in others who you have taught who are using it to help them ascend.

I also want to tell you that yesterday was the 5th year anniversary of my mom’s death and it was the easiest one for me to get through.  I have to thank you for helping to release her energy from me for her to move on.  I did not understand it at the time, but I certainly do now.  Reiki has also helped me with that.  Your classes have also helped me tremendously.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, JOSSLYN!”  Karen, Reiki II student in Sequim, WA

Reiki II EditBarb3-15,3
My classes are such animal loves, Mandy LOVES it and gets a ton of Reiki and attention from all the ladies. She often steals the show, as in this picture.

“Good Eve to you Josslyn,  I spent some quality time with the horses today (running Reiki for them).  Hercules’ back is so much less painful.  It has relaxed a little more.  (Hercules had been badly injured by a bad shoeing) They both seem soft and gentle.  Princess often shows the whites of her eyes but she was cuddly with no anxiety tonight.  They both soaked up Reiki.  Herc didn’t stand off at all (The first time we worked with him with the Reiki he stood away from us, but took it in for a long time).  They stayed close to each other in the pasture today, more than usual.  I think they have had a shift in their herd behavior.  I didn’t see the usual  “you’re in my space so I have to pin my ears”.  Post-energywork horsie bliss.   I remember you saying the Reiki can settle in over a number of days.  Seems that they are still improving.  Namaste.”  R. Raymond, Reiki I student from Port Angeles, WA

These testimonials are just from a few months of working with Reiki in their lives.  My point, REIKI WORKS, IF YOU HAVE IT USE IT!

Reiki Blessings to all my students, all my clients and all my blog readers.  I’m so incredibly grateful for ALL of you!

Josslyn Streett, incredibly grateful to be a Reiki Teacher

Congratulations Reiki I New Years Class of 2015!!

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

CONGRATULATIONS to my first Reiki I class of 2015!!  Every Reiki class is special for me, but they are all unique in their own ways too.  This class seemed to not have a similarity connecting them in the beginning.  But, I know, that by the end of class, similarities and connections appear, and they did, in quite magical ways.  By the end of day two this group of ladies had faced their fears together, blew their ‘boxes’ wide open and gave my dog Mandy constant cuddles throughout the two days of class.  Mandy is one happy Reiki dog.

Reiki I Edit 1-15
Congratulations Michelle, Michel, Stevie, Merala and Rena. You made my month for sure!! I know 2015 is going to be a great year!

Animal loving connected us and much more.  The first class was on Monday.  The ladies went home, practiced self Reiki Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and by Thursday had me in tears with the stories of the mini-miracles that they were already creating in their lives with just three days of Reiki.  Truly remarkable.  I cannot divulge details, but these ladies gave me many good reasons why I’m so incredibly grateful, every single day, that I get to teach Reiki.  Thank you ladies for choosing me to be your teacher!!  I’m so honored.

If you have not taken a Reiki class yet, make 2015 your year!!

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Adding Reiki Successfully to other Healing Careers

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

FIRST OF ALL – A BIG HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO MY NEWEST REIKI II GRADUATES!!

Congratulations to my new Reiki Practitioners!!
Congratulations to my new Reiki Practitioners!!

They may now call themselves Reiki Practitioners and charge money for their Reiki services if they so chose.  Most people chose to practice a bit before they start charging or charge by donation.  But, sometimes you get students who are already working in the healing field, as I had in this class.

This is a very talented group of women, most of them already working as healers in some way.  We had a massage therapist, a Donna Eden Energy Medicine Healer, a Social Worker who advocates for women in dire situations, a professional Psychic and two students new to healing but with natural abilities and wanting to take their Reiki farther –  all in this one class.

I absolutely love to teach current healers how to incorporate Reiki into what they are already doing.  Reiki easily adapts to anyone and any career you already have.

However, not everyone successfully adds Reiki on to their current career.

Adding Reiki to other Healing Careers

I have seen this many times, a massage therapist, cranial-sacral or some other type of body worker who works full-time at their field, takes a Reiki class and then doesn’t use it.   I talk to many of them after the fact, it goes something like this, “Yeah, I took the Reiki class but haven’t done much with it.  I feel it turn on sometimes while I’m working on someone, but most of the time I forget it’s there.”

Reiki as the Perfect Compliment to ANY Other Healing Modality

I probably see the most massage therapists of any career taking my Reiki classes.  Reiki is the perfect complement to this form of bodywork but also a group I see having difficulty adding Reiki to their practice.  A few simple additions to their Reiki practice could help them to be more successful at both massage and Reiki both.

Reiki is the perfect complement to this form of bodywork but also a group I see having difficulty adding Reiki to their practice. A few simple additions to their Reiki practice could help them to be more successful at both massage and Reiki both.

It makes me sad to hear comments like this one, because I know deep down in my core how great Reiki is and how it can be the perfect compliment to any healing modality.  Sometimes people tend to box Reiki up in a nice little package of “healing physically” or “healing stress” without really understanding within them what that means.

Others get so wrapped up in the information they receive in Reiki I but don’t successfully create a daily practice to bring Reiki into their lives.  the process of Reiki is incredibly simple, but the discipline is hard.  Reiki brings Divine miracles into our lives, but only if we practice it.

Reiki Power, Protection & Support

I talked in last week’s blog about how Reiki brings you Divine Power, Protection and Support to your every day life in a spiritual/non-religious way, but also to healing situations in particular.  Here is a link to that blog to refresh yourself on what power, protection and support mean to you during a healing.

Here is HOW you can practice a few important steps to incorporate Reiki into your healing path.

 TIPS To Successfully Incorporate Reiki Into Your Healing Practice!

  • Make the Choice to Invite Reiki into your life as the spiritual base that helps, guides, and supports you through all your healing work, personal and professional.  Because Reiki is from YOUR personal Divine Source, it would benefit healers of all kinds to bring in the Reiki first, before they do ANY spiritual work, before they do
    Any career where you are in close proximity to clients and their personal chatter can cause transference of energy from them to you, or them taking yours. This can cause exhaustion and early burn out.
    Any career where you are in close proximity to clients and their personal chatter can cause transference of energy from them to you, or them taking yours. This can cause exhaustion and early burn out.

    ANY client work.  Being a caregiver/bodyworker/healer is a challenge and to do it for years can be very difficult on your physical, emotional and mental bodies.  Reiki helps to ground you and cushion you from taking on the issues and energies of the client. Whether you are a healer, a manicurist, a hairdresser, a tattoo artist, a nurse, any kind of career where you have direct interaction with clients can cause this kind of energy interaction and wear you out over time. Burn out in these ‘helping’ careers is quite common.  This is less apt to happen when Reiki is with you every day.  This will help you to have more energy at the end of the day, end of the week and be able to continue your healing work without getting burn out.  Plus it helps you to have a more positive outlook every single day. Again, a win/win.

  • Practice with only the Reiki – I believe when adding a new healing modality it’s important to work ONLY with that modality to get a strong connection to it.  I don’t mean stop working, I mean in your time off from work, practice some sessions on people JUST with Reiki.  This is the only way to truly feel the Reiki energy and what it brings to your practice and client all by itself.  Tell your practice clients that you are new and ask them for feedback.  This will give you confirmation of how the Reiki is helping them.
  • Do self Reiki every day – Reiki is so simple, some people just don’t get it. When you make Reiki a daily practice you will very
    I, Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher practice Reiki on myself every single day!! I personally know the miracles that happen daily due to my constant connection to my Creator through Reiki practice.
    I, Josslyn Streett, practice Reiki on myself every single day!! I personally know the miracles that happen daily due to my constant connection to my Creator through Reiki practice!

    quickly and easily feel the effects that Reiki can have in your life.  You will be connected 24/7 to that Divine flow of spiritual power, protection and information support I was talking about in the other blog.  It makes daily life less stressful, go more smoothly, and easier with fewer worries.  But, it also heals you and connects you to Reiki in a powerful way, one that you won’t be able to dismiss.

  • Build a relationship with ReikiReiki is a direct connection to YOUR Higher Power. We are not working with out own life force energy here, we are working with Divine and Intelligent healing energy.  The more we work with our Reiki ability, the more we have that direct connection to our Higher Power, even when we aren’t working.  The more I feel connected to my God, the more hope I have for human life and the ability to be successful at it.  This then translates into my work life, helping me to have more energy to get through a day, helping me to be more patient in working with clients, helping me to have strong grounding and boundaries so I don’t take on other people’s old energies and make me sick.  This relationship with Reiki can support us in all of these ways, but most of all, it helps me to KNOW I am doing deep and important spiritual work for me and my client both.  To me, it doesn’t get more important than that.
  • Review any ethical issues with your Reiki teacher about adding Reiki to your career and HOW to do this without disrespecting your client’s wishes and boundaries.  We need to have our client’s permission to do Reiki.  If you are in a career where asking for this permission is not possible, then how can you still work with your Reiki to enhance your experience?  I will write a whole blog on this issue and refer the link back to this one when it’s done so you can read that too.  Meanwhile, talk to your teacher, ask your Reiki guides for help or think outside the box as to how to do this with the highest ethical standards.

If you are working to incorporate Reiki into your healing career, I pray this has helped you to get some ideas.  If you have ideas that have worked for you, please share them with us in the comment section.  I am thankful for all of us working together to help each other be successful at whatever healing modality we are working with.  They all have the same goal in my opinion, healing on a higher level, ultimately.

Reiki Blessings to you all for reading and sharing your love,

Congratulations to Our Newest Reiki I Students! The Ones Who Made it Through!

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

FIRST, A Big Huge Congratulations to our newest Rain Shadow Reiki, Reiki I students!!

Congratulations Mary Ellen, Camille, and Jayne, much Reiki Love to you all!
Congratulations Mary Ellen, Camille, and Jayne, much Reiki Love to you all!

What a wonderful and fun group of women.  I know, I always say that, because it’s true.  I’m blessed to have deep, inquisitive, curious, strong, respectful, spiritual and simply amazing students to take my classes.

Of course, as teacher, I take some credit, because I put the intention into my manifestation of amazing students every day, that I only get the best of the best students who vibrate well with me and are meant to take my classes.  But, it’s a collision course for success, because they’ve been doing the same in manifesting the right Reiki teacher for them, so it’s literally impossible for them to NOT find me and for me to NOT find them.  I love the way the Universe works.

Healing Crisis BEFORE a Reiki Class

When I took my Karuna Reiki class from William Lee Rand, he sent the books out beforehand so we could study the many symbols prior to the class.  My ‘healing crisis’ or as I call it, HEALING OPPORTUNITY started right away and lasted in my opinion for a few years.  It was powerful or pre-menopause, not 100% sure on that one.  But, the healing opportunity started as soon as I received my manual a month before the class when in the summertime, I got a head cold.  I don’t get head colds in the summer.

“When written in Chinese the word crisis is composed of two characters.  One represents danger, the other opportunity.”        John F. Kennedy

HealingCrisisChangeThis can happen with any of the healing classes we take.  As soon as we make the firm decision to change or evolve the healing opportunity can start.  This is not the ‘fault’ of Reiki, this is a conscious decision your soul and human self has made to change, but change also comes with evolution, raising our vibration, learning.  This can look like an emotional upset, cold or flu symptoms, strange dreams, trouble sleeping or being challenged by some of your old belief patters in hurtful and difficult ways.  This is the cleansing process that the student chooses when they choose CHANGE.  When they choose to evolve and get rid of the OLD and bring in the NEW vibration, our body, mind and spirit start to dump out the old stuff that no longer serves us.  Some people start this process after the class, but yes, some of us lucky ones start right away.

From Six Down to Three

Thus, I had three people sign up for the class this week who were not able to complete it. Two of them were so sick they weren’t able to even attend the class, one came and went home early.  Could they simply have colds?  Yes, of course.  Could they be detoxifying old stuff they no longer need and thus triggering a Healing Opportunity?  Yes, of course.  It doesn’t matter the why,  the answer is the same, REIKI!!!  Drinking lots of water, extra rest and taking an epsom salts bath helps a great deal too.  So, my recommendation is, stick with your first intuition to evolve and take the Reiki class at your next possible opportunity.  If you already have Reiki, REIKI YOURSELF A WHOLE LOT, EVERY DAY!  That is my prescription for a healing crisis/opportunity.

“Healing is not an overnight process, it is a daily cleansing of pain, it is a daily healing of your life.”   Leon Brown, found not guilty from new DNA evidence, after 30 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.  

I’m greatly proud of ALL my Reiki students for being on their spiritual path and continuing to move forward despite difficult conditions.  You are so much stronger than you know.

LOVE THIS PIC THE BEST! Such excitement.

And, again, congratulations to my wonderful new Reiki students from this weekend, the ones who did make it through.  I cannot wait to see where your Reiki path goes.  So exciting.

 

 

Reiki Blessings to you ALL,

CONGRATULATIONS REIKI I CLASS!!

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

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to my most recent Reiki I beginner class students.  Every class is so different because the people are all different.  Reiki I Class9-18-14,5They bring with them their own history, their own stories, their own unique gifts to share and it creates an experience that is unique in and of itself, every single time.  I love it and I never get bored, ever.  This class was highly dedicated to healing themselves on some very deep levels.  I was quite impressed with their dedication to this goal and their courage it take it on head on.  Please help me in sending Reiki Blessings to this wonderful trio of women, Karen, Joan and Zorina.

In Love and Light,

Josslyn

Congratulations August 2014 Reiki I Class!!

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

I've gotta say, I think Lynn wins for best face making

YOU KNOW WE HAD FUN WITH THIS CLASS!!  You can tell by the photo what a an enthusiastic and energetic class this was.  Congratulations to Lynn, Dick, Sharon M., Sharon R., Ulia, Jerry and Milton!!

This class had wonderful questions, and questioning of technique and ideas so that I had to dig deep into my spiritual experience to answer many of them.  Lets just say, I believe I told ALL my stories during this class.  And, we only went over by half an hour.  Not bad.  We had so many questions on the parking lot that I’ll have to write four or five blogs to answer them.  Seriously, a fabulous group of people.

Have I said it lately, I LOVE LOVE LOVE TEACHING REIKI!!  I’ll post more photos on Facebook if you’d like to see them or share them, but here are my favorites.

ReikiI8-28-14,2It was Sharon M.’s idea to do some Reiki drumming to help Milton and Jerry connect with their spirit guides. She was listening to her intuition and she was right ON!  I always love when I get to mix it up and do something different for a class. This was powerful and helpful. Connection was made!  It was awesome, different from what I normally do in class during the spirit guide meditation but it worked beautifully.

Ok, here we are looking all nice and 'normal.'  We are happy and grateful for the class.

I’m so amped up from this class, I can’t go to sleep yet.  I feel so grateful for the path I am on.  I cannot think of anything else in this world I’d rather do than hang out with very cool spiritual people talking about Reiki, drumming, learning about chakras, spirit guides, helping and healing people, it’s all too good to be true.  But, it is true, it’s my life and I’m incredibly blessed.  THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY AMAZING AND LOVING REIKI STUDENTS!  I LOVE YOU ALL!!

Such love pouring out of this class today makes me full of love and wanting to share it.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn
