Re-blogging one of my favorite fall recipes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Blessings, Josslyn
Cold and Flu season is here again, so I thought I’d remind you about this amazing technique for fighting off the common cold, and it helps for headaches too. This technique actually tricks your immune system into thinking you are sicker than you are. Your immune system then sends out ALL it’s soldiers to fight the big battle and win it, even though it might just be a sore throat. I use this at the mere sign of getting sick BEFORE it can get ahold of me. It really works. Give it a try. Josslyn
I’m seeing a trend with my clients this week, lots of solar plexus stuff going on. This is the place of personal power, spiritual power, self confidence, self worth. Don’t forget to Reiki your solar plexus this week before going out among other people. Take care of YOU!! Joss

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 23,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
From the book “Proof of Heaven” by Dr. Eben Alexander, a Neurosurgeon’s journey into the Afterlife, his near death experience.
“Through the Orb, Om told me that there is not one universe but many – in fact, more than I could conceive – but that love lay at the center of them all. Evil was present in all the other universes as well, but only in the tiniest trace amounts. Evil was necessary because without it free will was impossible, and without free will there could be no growth – no forward movement, no chance for us to become what God longed for us to be. Horrible and all-powerful as evil sometimes seemed to be in a world like ours, in the larger picture love was overwhelmingly dominant, and it would ultimately be triumphant.”

Day 5 was my first day of only juice for breakfast and lunch and then fasting by drinking only coconut water all afternoon and evening. On this day I also drove an hour to my Naturopath for my second colonic. I was tired after the two hours of driving and the hour of the colonic but did well and handled it all with no major issues. I juiced my veggies and put them in a thermos before I went so I’d have it for when I got out of the doctor’s office. (When having a colonic you do not eat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours before hand or drink any liquids for an hour before.)
Juicing and fasting on the run. That’s how it’s done.
UGH, The Horror
I do have to say the coconut milk, which is supposed to help you re-hydrate and give your body much-needed electrolytes and vitamins, tastes to me, HORRIBLE! Now, I will eat almost anything in the name of good health. I have taught myself to like many foods I didn’t like before, all in the name of good health. If I think my body needs it and wants it I will learn to like it, BUT NOT THIS. I felt like a little kid again, plugging my nose while drinking it just so I could get it down. Wining, scrunching my face, wincing, practically crying because it was so bad and I knew I had to drink it.
O.K. That’s Pretty Bad
My kids found this hilarious since it’s their mom, the one who always says “you can try anything once”, or “You can learn to like anything that is good for you.” They both acted like “Hey, this is no big deal. I bet it’s not so bad at all, we’ll prove her wrong.” Well, they tried it, with these confident cocky looks on their faces and they attempted to pretend it didn’t taste bad, but they couldn’t do it either. Because I had made such a big deal out of the bad taste, they of course, had to play it down a lot and NOT make a big deal about it. But their faces told the whole story. Finally my older son says “O.k. you’re right, that’s pretty bad.” Maybe it’s the brand, I don’t know. This coconut water thing is all new to me. There MUST be a better way. UGH. Here is an article about coconut water by Dr. Mercola. Read if you want to know all the great health benefits about coconut water. It helps me to get it down to know a bit about how it is good for you, but I’m still plugging my nose the whole time.
Everyone Is Unique
I also am not one to believe that everything that is supposedly good for you is good for everyone. I believe we are all different and all need a unique diet. I like the healthy eating plan by Dr. D’Adamo from the book, “Eat Right For Your Blood Type” because they seem to work for me and many of the people I know AND it is unique for each person. No diet is ever the same for any one person. That makes more sense to me. I have not muscle tested strong for coconut products in the past so I’m not totally sure about this water. I’m drinking it for the cleanse because I’m doing my best to stay as close to the recommended diet as possible, but I’ll have myself tested for it again before I decide if I’ll continue with it after the fast. Just because hundreds of people do well with coconut oil, or coconut water, or brussel sprouts, does not mean that I do well with it. Just because chicken is healthier for some people does not mean it’s healthy for everyone. Seriously. I listen to my body to determine that. I encourage YOU to do that too. Listen to your body. Get yourself muscle tested for items you are not sure about or if you are not at a place where you trust your intuition enough. When you get tested, you’ll be surprised at how spot on your intuition usually is. Trust, it’s one of the toughest parts of intuitive abilities. Empower yourself one day at a time by trusting your intuition a little more each and every day. What have you got to lose? Probably not much at all. Give it a try.
Hang in there and I will too!
Love and Light to you all,

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to our six new Reiki kids!
Saturday we had another Kids Reiki class. Six children and their Reiki adults celebrated Divine Source Energy by learning about Reiki, the history of hands on healing and Reiki, Reiki spirit guides and animal guides, feeling energy, meditation, chakras, auras and much more. Thank you to Tim, Jerica, Josiah, Lilly, Kayella and Makena for being so brave and loving as they learned something totally new.
Divine Source, God, Great Spirit and much more
We started the day talking about all the different names there are around the world for God and how they need to trust their own intuition to know what name feels right to them and their families. The kids did their very first meditation to find their safe place and then each one shared what their safe place looked like to them. Many of them saw power animals and spirit guides at their safe place. I was encouraged with how well they did for their first time and how much they seemed to enjoy it.
During our chakra and aura lesson we learned about the healing effects of color and how their energy is a rainbow of colors. As an example we wrapped colored bandanas around my special Reiki helper, Amy Meyers, to show them the colors of each chakra and the placement. It was a blast.
Magic Eye Art Project
While I did the individual attunements my Reiki assistants, Amy Meyers and Lauren Holloway both led a Magic Eye art project. The kids made an almost, full sized mirror image of themselves using their magic eyes. They closed their eyes to ‘see’ what they look like energetically and then created it on a large piece of paper with glitter, stickers, cut out pieces of paper, tissue paper, crayons and more. As you can see from the photos they were extremely creative as well as intuitive.
Reiki I Attunements
While the kids worked on the art projects I was in the Reiki room doing attunements and Reiki guide readings. Each child choose to be attuned to Reiki and each one had a different experience during the attunement. Some felt tingles, some felt heat, some felt flowing or rocking movement while they were being attuned and some said they just felt love. I appreciate how everyone feels and reacts to the energy differently.
Every attunement is different for me as well. With some the energy comes in fast and ready like the child, some comes in slow and hesitant, others calm and peaceful, others come in happy and joyful, but each one feels full of love and creates a very humble feeling of gratitude in me. I often tear up or even cry because I feel so incredibly grateful that Divine Source has entrusted this mission to me. I feel so small in comparison and yet so spiritually powerful at the same time. It is the most amazing feeling to give a Reiki attunement and especially to children.
With children I can often see or feel the immenseness of the ‘mission’ they have ahead of them in this life and feel how spiritually powerful THEY are. These kids are amazing. They have a big purpose in this life and a lot to do to prepare themselves. I feel genuinely honored to be a small part of teaching these children about energy, our Divine and spiritual guides so they hopefully never lose that sense of wonder and that belief that miracles really are possible. They will so need that as they grow up in this world and doing their best to create positive change. It’s a huge calling and each time I do an attunement on a child, I am reassured that we are in good hands, that they are truly ready for this task ahead. A truly brilliant feeling. Working with these amazing kids helps my faith grow each and every time. What a blessing.
Feeling the Energy
After the attunement we practice FEELING the energy and healing with the Reiki. Each child and adult makes an energy ball in their hands until they can feel the pressure of something there, something between their hands that is invisible but tangible at the same time. Some say it feels hot, some tingly, some like a worm crawling in their fingers, but they all feel it. Then we combine our energy balls and the children took turns standing in the middle of them inside one huge ball of Reiki. That is always a highlight. Sometimes we sing beautiful songs to help the energy feel stronger. The more joy you feel the more the energy runs and the more likely you are to feel it on your body. This is one of the kids favorite exercises and we do it as often as we can at Kids Reiki circle.
Perfect End to a Perfect Day
We handed out the certificates and the kids went home. I always remind the Reiki adults that it is up to them to continue the Reiki training at home and support their Reiki kid by practicing with them as well as bringing them back once a month to Kids Reiki Circle. Reinforcement and practice is key to each Reiki kid being confident in their practice and learning of energy. I’m so excited to see where each of these kids go with their Reiki path. The options are endless.
Love and Light to all of you wonderful Reiki kids, their parents and my Reiki helpers. Thank you to each of you for entrusting me to this very important task!
If you are interested in your child taking a Kids’ Reiki class in the Sequim, WA area please call or email me and we’ll plan a class together. If you are not in the Olympic Peninsula area but want to find a Kids’ Reiki class try Barbara McKells‘ website or talk to a Reiki Master in your area about starting a kids class.

Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher and mom to two boys and a whole world of children
Welcome to Rain Shadow Reiki,
My name is Josslyn Streett. I am an intuitive energy healer, teacher and reader. That means I use my intuition as well as my knowledge of the world and other worlds to guide and help others. I empower my clients to heal themselves through the use of Infinite and Divine Universal Energy, which I often choose to call God. I work with clients both over the phone and in person so I can work with you, no matter where you are in the world.
Divine Source has called me to this work. I believe we each have our own different path to take and mine led me here. I strive to do this work with the highest ethics, compassion and highest healing of ego self. Energy work is my passion and my work both. It’s the most exciting and interesting profession I can think of. Every time I work with a client I get even more enthusiastic about the work I get to do and know that through God, I am truly able to help people move forward and be happier in their lives. I see results and that keeps me motivated every day to be a healer.
All of the main photos at the top of the page you see on my website have been taken by me on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula where I live.
If you were drawn to this website, it is no accident. My guides usually bring the people to me that are meant to work with me or learn from me. I invite you to look around at what interests you and if you feel called to do so, email or call me for an appointment. I am here for a reason, to spread Love and Light around the planet as I am drawn to do so. SCROLL DOWN FOR MY MOST RECENT BLOG.
