“Feelings are like children. You don’t want them driving the car, but you shouldn’t stuff them in the trunk either.”
Tim Robbins in ‘Thanks for Sharing’
Ok, this just made me laugh, felt I had to share it. I love when a complicated emotional situation can be put in a way to make it make sense and more lighthearted. I tend to be on the serious side, so this helps me a lot. This quote is from a good movie, worth checking out, ‘Thanks for Sharing’ with Tim Robbins, Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo, all who I enjoy very much. It’s about sexual addiction but anyone with emotional healing issues may be able to relate to it. I like the ending, it’s not overly ‘pollyanna’ but positive. It lets us know that no matter what we are healing in life, it’s an ongoing job. We are an ongoing piece of work. We might as well have fun and find joy in between the hard stuff.
Family and Reiki is where I find my joy. Where do you find yours?

Let me premise this by saying I have not seen this movie yet. I have read about it and watched the trailer. However, with the amazing cast of strong women leads whom I enjoy and respect as actors, such as Allison Janney who plays ME, the Reiki Master (not really me, but someone like me) Ellen Page who was fabulous in “Juno” and Rosemarie DeWitt who was unforgettable in “United States of Tara”, I’m having a very hard time believing that I will not be adding this to my collection right away after first making a very rare for me appearance at the theatre to see it on the big screen.
The story (taken from IMDB) is about a massage therapist, Rosemarie DeWitt, who is unable to do her job when stricken with a mysterious and sudden aversion to bodily contact. Meanwhile, her uptight brother’s floundering dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his healing touch. After, may I add, he goes to Bronwyn, played by Allison Janney, for Reiki.
I have to admit, I’m extremely excited for Reiki and energy healing to be on the big screen and finally get the recognition that it deserves. Millions of people are becoming more and more familiar with it every day through Dr. Oz, magazine and newspaper articles and now the big screen. Every time someone hears about Reiki or sees it in print, it becomes more of a norm and therefore ‘not crazy’ to people who would have called it crazy prior. When people here something three times from three different sources, all of a sudden, it becomes accepted much more readily. People are opening up and I’m praying, that they did a quality job in this movie, so it will help. Plus it’s considered a comedy so they’ve chosen to go the lighthearted route which I readily approve of for a first time out.
SUPPORT REIKI IN THE MAINSTREAM
It’s all good, right?! All publicity is good publicity. So, please support this Reiki movie and go see it, buy it at the store, talk about it with your friends, drag your friends to the movies with you, whatever it takes to get the Reiki word out there. The more people who ‘wake up’, the bigger that Love and Light snowball gets and the better for all of us as earthly neighbors.
Here is a link to the YouTube video for the trailer. Enjoy.
