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

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

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.

Josslyn, Ellen and Amber

Reiki As Witness – Grieving 3

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

Many years ago I watched a movie with Susan Sarandon. I love movies, they are often my muse. I didn’t love this movie so much, “Shall We Dance”, it was o.k. for me, but this line by Susan’s character stayed with me many years.

  • Beverly Clark : “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness’.”

Two of my most beloved witnesses to my life died in the crash July 20, 2017. My husband and my son were my soul mates, my heart, my witnesses to my life; good and hard. My husband especially maybe because he had chosen this position as witness when he married me. He had proven over and over again to be my most loyal ally in this sense of life/marriage. He didn’t always know how to be there for me, but he worked at it, he learned, he proved to me over and over again that he cared even through he didn’t always understand. He made the effort daily, year after year to learn, to understand more, to be there for me whatever the case, that’s love. I was blessed to have 22 years of his love. Many people wish for and search for the kind of love my husband and I had. Not perfect, but perfect for us.

Which maybe makes my loss more unbearable, maybe it makes it more bearable. It depends upon the moment and the feeling in that moment. It changes moment by moment which it is.

I’ve secretly struggled with this since the death of my chosen witnesses. I secretly struggle with a lot, but this was a BIG ONE.

Who? Who, in my deepest darkest hours, with all of my piled up, extreme baggage now, would want to witness me. Who would I trust enough to witness my baggage, my HUGE stacks and stacks of baggage? I was terribly mad at God, my Reiki was not running through my body, although I worked with it in other ways, I didn’t see it as my witness. Just wasn’t there yet. Yet.

My Caregiver/Assistant/Co-Healer/Very Close Dear friend, Ellen, was teaching a series of Talking to Trees Classes during the summer, one year after the crash. I could barely get out of the house regularly and my physical therapy wasn’t coming along as fast as I had liked to be hiking out into the forest to talk to trees. But, I was determined to go. I knew I needed it more than staying home and being safe for my body.

The first one at beautiful Lake Crescent was amazing and I got some very important messages from the trees. But, the second class, just down the street from my home in the forest near by, was the one that shook me to my core and opened me up to a old and new possibilities. I had only made it down to the forest near my home once and that was too much and created too much pain for my body, so I hadn’t walked there since. In fact, for the tree class, I drove there and walked into the forest, just being careful and respecting my bodies healing pace.

The class was going beautifully, Ellen is a wonderful facilitator and teacher, very naturally gifted with plants and Reiki both. We were getting to the first session in which we break up, walk around the forest and pick a tree to talk to, or they pick us is how it usually goes for me. I had to go to the bathroom and was struggling with how far of a walk it was and should I go now, or do the talking session then go. Stupid stuff that clouds your mind at important moments, body stuff that constantly reminds us we are human.

I choose to do a quick session talking to the trees and then make the hike to the bathrooms since I knew the trees I needed to talk to were on the way and I’d already be part way there. I just know which trees want to talk, and I head in that direction. I turn to the tree I feel is the one and I look at it. When I’m looking at it, it’s looking back at me. It has many eyes, all looking at me. I was taken aback for a moment, then went on with the process Ellen has taught us to connect with the trees. Still in my mind, I need to do this quick because I still have to go to the bathroom. Luckily, this tree got right to the point and didn’t mince words. As I connected to it, it said, “I see you. I am witness for you. We all are.”

Aspen Eyes by Fireflyforest.net

Well, I hadn’t told ANYONE about my ‘witness conundrum’. No one. I started blubbering right away. There is no other word for it. This tree, in one sentence, knew the deepest darkest fears of my heart and got right to the point. I felt it too, I felt it take me through the Universe as if to say, the Universe IS the witness to your life and I am part of the Universe, as are you. DUH. Of course, we are all one, we are all connected, but this tree had to remind me of that and help me FEEL it in my core, in every molecule. It had to help me feel it so substantially that I wouldn’t forget it.

I went to the bathroom, rejoined the group and couldn’t share. It was too deep, too personal, made me too vulnerable at the moment. I wasn’t ready. I usually share quite willingly what the trees tell me, even if it’s hard, even if it’s sensitive, but that day I couldn’t. It took me quite a long time to even share the experience with Ellen, but I did. And, now I share with you. Hoping and praying that this, as always is my path, helps someone else to know/feel, that even when we are/feel alone the trees witness us. Even when we are in the pit of depression, the Universe witnesses us. And, even when we feel there is no hope, Reiki witnesses us.

This is when I conceived this process and have used it ever since with my Reiki when I need it. I need it often. I feel it working, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to get off my couch to write this. It lifted me up enough to take one more step into my life. One more step onto my path. One more step into healing.

Reiki as Witness Process:

  1. Bring in my Reiki with intention (Gassho Prayer Position)
  2. Ask God/Reiki to WITNESS my pain, suffering, grief
  3. Ask God/Reiki to FEEL my pain, suffering, grief
  4. Ask God/Reiki to FILL ME UP, fill all my cracks with Reiki
  5. Ask God/Reiki to TAKE THE PAIN AWAY: Whatever is not mine. Whatever is no longer serving me for learning. Whatever is not for my highest and best good and in the highest and best way- Take it all to Divine or to Mother Earth and leave the Reiki in it’s place.
  6. Reiki yourself hands on or just with intention in your heart.
  7. Do this a million more times until I feel better, feel like moving off the couch.
  8. Say THANK YOU.

God Bless you for reading, healing, sending love,

Josslyn

Reiki For The Deepest Darkest Hour – Grieving 2

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

Today is 18 months since my husband and 16 year old son died in a car crash.

I am not speaking for everyone, but if this resonates with you, or even helps you in any way, I’m deeply grateful.

I crack myself open and share my deepest pain, only in the hope that it can help someone else. Being vulnerable is not my best thing, I’m getting better at it because I am forced to in my situation, but still not comfortable with it. Maybe a bit on the cheesy side, but Princess Diana is my muse here, reminding me that her vulnerability was her greatest asset and strength for me. I could relate to her in her vulnerability, her perfect imperfectness. And, she comes through me now reminding me that people need to relate to others even when those others are a mess, especially when they’re a mess. People need to know they are not alone in their mess. I am telling you now, you are not alone in your mess. I am there with you. Many are there with you. Reiki/God is there with you.

In our deepest darkest hours, usually alone, the fact that we can still touch others, help others, resonate with others may be our only super power. It may be the most important one, at that. Maybe not. No one really knows anything in this place. We are all doing our best, one minute at a time. But, I’ve been motivated to get off my couch, stop crying or cry in between typing, and reach out.

In our deepest darkest hours when we feel most alone, we are not alone. We still have Reiki. We still have the Universe or whatever Higher Power you feel in your heart/being. When we can’t get up off the couch to do anything that society deems worthy, we can still talk to Reiki. Heal with Reiki. Sometimes that’s all I have. Sometimes, that’s all any of us have.

When I’m angry at God, and yes, I get very angry at God sometimes, many times – for some reason, even though I believe Reiki comes from God, I don’t get mad at Reiki. Reiki is still safe for me. Reiki has always been there for me. I feel it in my body, my hands. I feel it working, I feel it helping me, lifting me up. Reiki hasn’t abandoned me. Even when my body couldn’t channel Reiki after the crash for almost a year, I didn’t feel abandoned by Reiki. I knew it was in my home, in my son’s hands, in my caregivers hands, in the Universe – and all I had to do was talk to it, ask it with my thoughts to heal me. And, I knew 100 % in my belief in every cell in my being, that it would. When I felt I had nothing, I had that. I still have that, even in my darkest, loneliest moments.

Here is my process for getting out of the pit of depression and despair, pray it helps at least one person:

  1. Bring in my Reiki with intention (Gassho Prayer Position)
  2. Ask God/Reiki to WITNESS my pain, suffering, grief
  3. Ask God/Reiki to FEEL my pain, suffering, grief
  4. Ask God/Reiki to FILL ME UP, fill all my cracks with Reiki
  5. Ask God/Reiki to TAKE THE PAIN AWAY: Whatever is not mine. Whatever is no longer serving me for learning. Whatever is not for my highest and best good and in the highest and best way- Take it all to Divine or to Mother Earth and leave the Reiki in it’s place.
  6. Do this a million more times until I feel better, feel like moving off the couch.
  7. Say THANK YOU.

In Love and Light, Josslyn

The Knots Prayer with Reiki to Ease the Holiday Discomfort

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

The holiday time is not always the joyous time for some of us. For some of us they are very difficult without our loved ones, lonely, feeling emotional or mental traumas get worse by the unbalanced energy of everyone else being so happy and expecting others to be so too. There is so much expectation and many of us aren’t able to rise to it and don’t need to or want to. I understand. I’m in it too. I’m walking the path with many of you of grief, trauma, PTSD, depression.

I work with my Reiki constantly through the day to help life me up and get done the things I need/want to get done, and heal me in between. I am healing all day long.

Sometimes my students/clients are afraid they don’t have the right words so they don’t do their Gassho or turn to their Reiki when they could. You do not have to have the ‘right’ words. The perfect words come from your heart and just describe what you feel. Just tell Reiki Source HOW YOU FEEL and HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL. And ask the Reiki to HEAL THAT. And it will.

But some people like to have words as a jumping off place and I understand that as well.

So, I’m sharing a prayer that I like. I don’t remember where I found it, but I didn’t write it myself. Lets say, Author Known to God.

Blessings to all who are reading, may you have the best next two weeks that you can possibly have WITH THE LOVE AND LIGHT OF REIKI SURROUNDING YOU!!

Love and Light,

Josslyn, Ellen, Amber

TIP: ALWAYS BRING IN YOUR REIKI FIRST WHEN DOING ANY SPIRITUAL RITUAL/EVENT

Dear God/Reiki Source/Universe/The God of Your Heart,

Thank you for untying the knots that are in my mind, my heart, and my life.

Thank you for removing the have nots, the can nots, and the do nots that I have in my mind.

Thank you for erasing the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart.

Thank you for releasing me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.

and most of all, Reiki Source,

I thank you for removing from my mind, my heart and my life all of the ‘am nots’ that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.

Amen

Author Known to God

New Gassho Experiential Workshop REVIEWS!!

Because I’m getting ready to spend quality time with my son for the holidays and wrapping up my ‘work’, I’ll let my students speak for themselves about how they liked the Gassho workshop.

I will be teaching another of these workshops soon, in person as well as online. Email us if you’d like to be a part of this workshop. It’s FABULOUS if I do say so myself. I was deeply moved by the experience and had a great deal of fun as well. Thank you to my students for letting me know how the workshop effected them so honestly.

Downloading, writing, visioning and teaching new workshops is one of my new favorite things to do. We will have a lot more experiential workshops coming in 2019 because EXPERIENCING REIKI IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN REIKI!!

Blessings, Josslyn
