Reiki Quick Tip – Brighten Your Light

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki

I wrote a blog a while back about a Reiki Pick Me Up, about working with Reiki in each chakra to energize yourself and get through the day when you feel tired.

But, this technique can be used in other ways as well, energizing yourself is just one of them.  This same technique is used as a quick way to strengthen and grow your energy and that of your auric field, in other words, Strengthen Your Divine Light Within.

I have learned this technique from multiple Reiki Masters, first in my Reiki Master/Teacher class from my teacher, Catherine Morris, as we use it to brighten our energy field and bring in more Divine Light into our field before doing attunements.

Then I learned another use for it during my Reiki Drumming class from my teacher, Michael Baird.  He used the phrase “Strengthen Your Light.”  It strengthens and expands the Divine Light in our energy field and helps us to feel the Divine Energy more strongly before working with Reiki or doing other spiritual activities.

I also like the term Brighten Your Light, because I also brighten my energy field by singing the song “This Little Light of Mine” and it reminds me of that song and ability to brighten our own lights with our intention and attitude.  Whatever you call it, find a way that works for you to enlarge your Divine Light within.

The more you practice this, the more healthy your energy field will be on an ongoing basis.  Do this each and every day to feel happier, healthier and more content with life in general.  These are all benefits of a healthy and happy energy body.

Here is one way to do this:

HOW DO I STRENGTHEN MY LIGHT?

For Reiki I…

  1. Sit in your Gassho, center and ground yourself and call in your Reiki guides of the highest order.
  2. Hold the intention that you want the Reiki energy to give you a boost in energy to get you through the day or whatever intention you feel is best for you for the greatest good.
  3. Starting with your root chakra run Reiki energy in your chakras from bottom to top for as long as you feel necessary or for about thirty seconds to one minute each. (If top to bottom feels better to you, then do that. It’s all good and there is no wrong.)
  4. After running Reiki on your crown chakra run Reiki all throughout your aura with the intention of energizing you.
  5. Closing Gassho and go!

For Reiki II and above…ChakrasLabeled

  1. Sit in your Gassho, center and ground yourself, and call in your Reiki guides of the highest order.
  2. Activate your symbols in your hands.  I do this by drawing each symbol in each hand and saying their name three times, one symbol at a time.  This helps me to feel the energy on my palm, knowing it is flowing.  (Tip: The more you draw the symbols out, the more powerful the energy to come and more quickly.)
  3. Starting with your root chakra draw the Power Symbol (CKR) and in each of your chakras from bottom to top draw the power symbol with the intention of MORE DIVINE POWER. (If top to bottom feels better to you, then do that. It’s all good and there is no wrong.)
  4. After drawing the Power Symbol, CKR, in your last chakra, draw a large CKR in front of you activating it and bringing it into your body and aura.
  5. As you bring the large full-sized Power Symbol into your aura and body intend MORE DIVINE POWER and your aura and personal space DIVINELY PROTECTED!
  6. Do your closing Gassho and go!

I Pray many of you give this a try when you are needing that pick me up and that it helps.  Let me know how it works for you.

Love, Light and Blessings to all of you,

Joss

A BIG THANK YOU to my teacher, Catherine Morris, for teaching me this technique as part of our attunement process.  So grateful for ALL you have taught me!!

A BIG THANK YOU to my Reiki Drumming teacher, Michael Baird for helping me to see more uses for this technique.

Peninsula Healers Circle – Radiant Circuits, Our Ticket to JOY!

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

This month’s Peninsula Healers Circle topic was taught by Mary Ellen (ME) Bartholomew, a Donna Eden Energy Practitioner and Reiki Master from Port AngelesPeninsulaHealerCircleFeb15,11Let me just say, SHE WAS FABULOUS AND SO WAS THE TOPIC!!  So much of what she talked about, truly spoke to me.  It was eye-opening and I couldn’t help thinking “Wow, if everyone knew this and did this daily, there would be no depression in our world at all! Maybe even no fighting or war?!!”  Suffering from depression for so many years, I felt that joy was gone for good and I had no idea how to bring it back.  Reiki helped me with this over time and still does.  But, now I can see, I might have found my joy much quicker if I had known how to reactivate it through my energy field with the Radiant Circuits.

Chakras, Meridians & Radiant Circuits

Similar to chakras and meridians, the radiant circuits are another part of our energy system but once activated they do not have to run on any particular pathway, they can go anywhere they are needed.  They connect all our energy systems.  Donna Eden calls them Radiant Circuits but other names are Joy Flows, Strange Flows, Extraordinary Vessels and more descriptive names.

M.E. had us up dancing, tracing and bringing bliss into our bodies!!

They are the only energy system in smaller creatures, like bugs.  And the very first energy system that is created by a fetus, before chakras and meridians.  Thus the Chinese believe the radiant circuits to be the first energy system in our body’s energy system even though they were not discovered first.  The purpose of the Radiant Circuit system is to give us access to feel joy, bliss and uplifting feelings.  It is our soul’s true goal and purpose to BE IN JOY.  Radiant circuits also act as a tie between the other parts of our energy system, the chakras and meridians.

How Do We Activate Them?

Mary Ellen taught us in our class how to trace the Radiant Circuits like you would the meridians.  And four of them are the same as the meridian system of pathways.  If you are familiar with Donna Eden’s energy medicine at all (check out YouTube) you know in order to strengthen or activate your meridians you trace them along their path.

You can do the same with Radiant Circuits.  In fact, there are many good videos on YouTube that show you how to trace these radiant circuits.  I have posted a link to one that I like HERE.  It’s about 6 minutes long.  My favorite part of the whole class was at the end when Mary Ellen played a great song called ‘Thank You For This Day’ by Karen Drucker and we all danced to the music  with gratitude and positive affirmations in it, drawing infinity symbols around ourselves and incorporating tracing the radiant circuits to the music.  It was beautiful and I can’t think of a better way to start each day.  Just the dancing with so many like-minded souls activated my joy for sure.  The whole process brought me joy and helped me to feel empowered towards my goal this year which is to bring in my love and joy!

Other Ways to Activate Radiant Circuits

There are other ways to activate the circuits and if you add the intention to any of these activities you can activate them in a faster amount of time and feel joy in your life sooner.  But, like any intention and energy healing, this is an activity that needs to be done on a daily basis and is well worth the effort.

Once the Radiant Circuits are reactivated they also help us cope with the modern-day stresses of life in a more joyful light-hearted manner, helping us to get through even the most difficult of days on Earth in a more positive manner, holding onto our bliss at the same time.

Intention can be something like “It is my intention that this activity is activating my Radiant Circuits & creating joy in me as I do it!”

Reiki, Stretching, Yoga, exercise, Qi Gong, affirmations, dance, music, singing, walking with intention, creativity, gratitude, being with a beloved friend, confiding in someone you trust, anything that brings happiness and health to YOU, etc.

This is a Reiki blog, so you can bet I’m going to be adding in intentions to activate the radiant circuits for my clients during sessions and if it is needed, my guides will help me with this and I’ll know how to do it in combination with Reiki.  I can’t wait to see what results we get.  I’ll be watching the Donna Eden videos and working with Mary Ellen along the way to learn more about this fascinating new possibility.

Triple Warmer

I truly believe our souls want us to be happy and find our place of bliss.  However, while in human form on Earth most of us are constantly in fight, flight or freeze mode.  This is due to modern-day societal stresses and our triple warmer meridian, which protects us by keeping us in this stressed state.  (We must be prepared for action in case of an emergency –  that is how Triple Warmer thinks).

My favorite way to calm the Triple Warmer (the fight, flight or freeze meridian) because it's so easy to do anywhere.  Hold the spleen point under the breast and the other hand on the side of the arm above the elbow until you feel calmer, then switch and do the other side too.  Called the Triple Warmer Hug.

Typically Triple Warmer keeps us in fight, flight or freeze mode.  Or it takes us there unnecessarily out of old habits.  Situations all day long trigger old stressful or even traumatic memories and they take us back to FF or F mode.  This is reactivity mode where Triple Warmer activates inappropriately and when not needed.  Triple Warmer was meant to protect us, help us have quick reactions and sudden or immense strength in times of need.  (We don’t need to be the HULK all the time, but we are too often.)  TW can pull energy from all the systems except the heart.  Radiant Circuits can help to bring in calm during times of stress causing us to not go into FF or F and instead stay in a state of bliss.  THIS IS HUGE, PEOPLE!!  Modern Americans are in a state of Fight Flight or Freeze almost every day.  This is a major cause of illness and depression in our country.  This is why Reiki and other energy healing techniques like activating the Radiant Circuits is so vital at this time in our history.  It can truly help people to not only cope, but to truly find their bliss.

 A BIG HUGE thank you to Mary Ellen for introducing us to this amazing and life changing energy system.   I look forward to practicing more and bringing in more bliss and less stress.  I hope reading a bit about this has motivated you to watch one of Donna’s videos and learn for yourself.  I know I’m going to be blissed out all day today and I’m grateful for it.

“If we were talking to you on your first day here, we would say, “Welcome to planet Earth.  There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have.  And your work here — your lifetime career — is to seek joy.  As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who- you-really-are.  And in doing so, you will utilize your profound freedom.  Seek joy first, and all of the growth that you could ever imagine will come joyously and abundantly unto you.” Ester and Jerry Hicks card pack for Abundance and the Law of Attraction

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Reiki On A Harbor Seal

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

Orcas Island is the turtle shaped island.  This is the view from our house in Sequim, WA.
Orcas Island is the turtle shaped island. This is the view from our house in Sequim, WA.

I recently went to the beautiful and mystical Orcas Island in the chain of the San Juan Islands in the Pacific North West where I live.  I went for a sound healing conference with the equally amazing sound healer, Tom Kenyon.  I’ll write a blog about him soon.  The conference didn’t start until 1pm so I had some time (sans children) to myself.  Each day I’d take a nice walk about the Rosario Resort and Spa grounds and just take in the fresh and alive island energy.  Even though I’ve lived on the Olympic Peninsula for six years now, and I look at the San Juan Island chain out my living room window every day, I had yet to go to the Islands, any of them.  This trip to Orcas Island was my first jaunt and totally worth the day trip with two ferry rides to get there.

Morning Walk on Orcas

On the last morning of the conference on a walk, I went the regular route I’d been taking with a few changes in course but the same basic scenic locales.  One of the great spots is a viewing spot near the main hotel but off to the side on an overlook and viewing one of the other islands, Shaw Island.  But, on this day, on the rocks just below the overlook about 50 feet from me and down on the rocks was a small harbor seal.  His body was positioned vertically from me with his head away looking at the other island.  When he felt me he looked up at me for a little while, then pretty much dismissed me as not needing his attention and went back to what he was doing, resting on the rock.  Me, thinking Reiki 24/7 , I thought, I’ll send him some Reiki to say Hi.

Sending Reiki to a Seal

Happy seal smile
Happy seal smile

With my hands in the prayer position asking Divine Source for the Reiki to flow and my Reiki guides of the Highest Order to come and help, I also added “and please let the seal know, he may take as much, as little or none of the Reiki, it is totally up to him.”  Over the years of sending Reiki to animals, I have found this to be the most important guidance I received from Kathleen Prasad’s book, “Animal Reiki.”  Respect the animal by giving them the choice.   The animals respond in a much more favorable way if they are given a choice in the matter.  Then I sent the Reiki to him by beaming it from my eyes.  (I simply intend for the Reiki to flow from my eyes and it does.)  I started chanting in my head, all the Reiki symbols I have from Master/Teacher symbols down to Reiki II symbols and then my Karuna Reiki symbols too.  I’d chant each one three or five times depending upon how many I felt was needed, then would move on to the next symbol.

Checking Out The Reiki

At first the seal looked at my like “What is that?”  Seriously, that is the exact thought that came to me telepathically, from him.  Then I felt like he was feeling the Reiki and ‘checking it out.’ After a couple of minutes of not being sure, he all of a sudden got a very content and happy look on his face and looked at me to let me know he liked it.  He was away from me, so he had to swing his head around to do this.  He kept looking at me while I sent Reiki.  And, I would swear he had a smile on his face.  He particularly liked when I was chanting and sending the Mental/Emotional Reiki Symbol (SHK).  After feeling the energy of this symbol he’d get a little irritated when I’d switch to another symbol.

Why'd You Stop?
Why’d You Stop?             I did not have my camera with me that morning so these are not my little Reiki buddy but still just as sweet.

So, I went back to SHK.  Just to test it out, I left that symbol and went to chanting another.  Once again, he got annoyed and gave me a sharp look to let me know his preference.  I did this two or three times to check if what I was feeling with his emotions was correct and sure enough each time I’d switch away he’d look at me sharply and tell me to go back.  So, I listened and trusted and chanted only SHK until he told me otherwise.  At that point he started flipping his flippers up and down in joy, moving around like he was dancing and showing definite signs of happiness.  The smile was back.

Let Animals Guide the Reiki Session Themselves

Then he started moving around towards me more so he could see me and I could easily see his whole body.  He stretched out in front of me and started directing me to other parts of his body where he now wanted me to send Reiki.  He would let me know which symbol he liked in which area by his facial expressions, movements and his emotions that he was sending me telepathically.  This is exactly what cats and dogs do too!  I was enthralled.   I felt he wanted the Power Symbol (CKR) at his root chakra area so I chanted that and focused my eyes on that part of his body.  He seemed content for a while so I kept doing this until he gave me a different signal.

Invaders!!

At that point, two other walkers from the hotel came and joined us and started oohing and awing over the sighting of the seal.  I’d been sending the seal Reiki for about ten to 15 minutes or so at this point.  He looked at them curiously but then went back to directing me to his Reiki needed spots.  I trusted my intuition that he was telling me where he wanted it and which symbol he wanted and continued for a little while.  After about another five minutes of enjoying the Reiki he turned his back to me, started looking at me in an annoyed fashion instead of the blissful, happy one he’d had earlier.  I suddenly felt like a space invader that was not wanted instead of the joy and gratitude I had felt earlier.   I took the hint that he was done, stopped the Reiki, thanked him for allowing me to send it and went on my way.  I looked back and he was slinking his way to the water and leaving.

HOW to Send Reiki to Wild Animals

First of all let me just say, with wild animals, first and foremost make sure you are in a safe place or a safe distance.  They are still wild and unpredictable.  Second, you might want to start by practicing on animals who are friendly with you, like pets.  Then just practice.  Get the trust and the knowing of practicing with pets first.

  • Give the animal the option of saying “No thank you” to the Reiki.
  • Send them Reiki with no intention of your own.
  • Have no time line, just go with the flow.
  • Be flexible, allow the animal to guide the session.
  • Say Thank you when they are done.
  • Move on and respect their privacy.

I was so grateful to see and connect with my seal buddy.  Living here and walking the beaches for six years I’ve only seen a seal one other time, so I knew this event was important.  I went back to my condo and looked up seal in my “Animal Spirit Guide” book by Dr. Steven Farmer, my handy book that I take with me every where I go.  Here is what seal has to offer if you see one; in person, in a dream or in a meditation vision:  (Choose the ones that apply to you at that time.)

  • Your creative imagination is active and fertile right now, so keep a journal nearby and write in it every day.
  • Your dreams will be very clear and vivid, so pay close attention to them for any messages from your subconscious.
  • The cycle of challenges and hardship is complete, and you’re now moving into a time of plenty and abundance.
  • Although it’s an emotional time for you, you’re quite comfortable experiencing these feelings while at the same time staying grounded.
  • This is a time to stay attuned to your natural rhythms, such as sleeping when you’re tired, eating only when you’re hungry, and exercising when you feel the urge to do so.

Two Seals in One Day

HarborSealWavingBecause I’m a natural cynic, and because I already knew I wanted to write a blog about this experience, I asked my Reiki Guides for some sort of SIGN that I was indeed sending Reiki to and communicating with this seal.  I got my clear sign later at the Tom Kenyon sound healing session.  Each day there would be three sessions with a thirty minute break in between.  During the breaks we were completely silent and recommended by Tom that we walk or sit on the earth and contemplate or write in our journals.  For the first time of the sessions, I chose to walk by the marina area instead of the beach or the grass area as I had in other sessions.  As I was walking, a harbor seal swam by, waved his fin at me, swam a bit more and then dove under and was gone.  Quick as can be.  I looked around me and only two other people were looking and pointing in the direction of the seal.  I knew this was my sign and thanked the seal and my guides.  Doesn’t get much clearer than that.

Why Communicate with Wild Animals?

We are at a critical time in our human existence where we need to make peace with our planet and the creatures that live with us on it.  We need to empathically feel our planet and the life on it as alive and equally as important as our human lives.  We are truly all connected and by telepathic communication we can emotionally connect to the animals and the planet in ways we haven’t done in this life before, or for many lifetimes.  I believe we all did at one time.  Reconnecting to the ability to talk to the animals, the rivers, the mountains, the rocks, valleys and even the moon and stars, is all vitally important now.  It allows us to truly FEEL CONNECTED to the whole.

Wake Up!

I am seeing more and more people ‘wake up’ to this possibility, this need.  I am feeling clients coming to me who are very psychic people, who have these abilities naturally already, they just need to know it and practice with it.  With a little bit of mentoring and practice they will soon be teaching others to talk to our planet too.  This is the snowball effect that will save our planet, our animals and thus save ourselves and our souls.  Yes, talking to animals again is vitally important to all of us.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn Streett

Rain Shadow Reiki 4th Annual Reiki Healing Drum Circle – AWESOME!!

My Guides Deliver a Mini Miracle Again!!

The weather called for rain all week for Saturday, the day of our annual drum circle.  I just kept the thought in my head of “My guides chose this date 8 months ago, they wouldn’t choose a date we’d get rained out on, unless it was part of the learning experience.”  I felt confident all would be well.

The older kids playing outside in the sun before the drumming started.  Grateful for beautiful weather.

It was a good thing I was correct in that assumption because we had so many people at this drum circle, plan B would have been a very cramped but cozy drum circle in our living room.  Gray skies and rain threatened all day long, then just as people started arriving, just like a miracle, the sun came out and shone down upon us.  It was beautiful and much celebrated.  We had out biggest and most lively drum circle so far.

Potluck

Good Food makes everything better!!

We started with a potluck for the first time, with some fabulous gluten-free, organic and healthy dishes to choose from.  What a pleasure to eat at a potluck and not have to worry about what I’m eating.  I’m sensitive to so many things, mainly in packaged foods, soy or wheat.  No worries here, I ate happily as did many of my sensitive friends.  The food was amazing.

Blessing Ceremony with Sage

We took turns making sure everyone who wanted to receive the sage got it.

Then we moved onto a cleansing, grounding and blessing ceremony with beautiful sage from California that my soul sister Heather gave me as a gift.  Sage is known for it’s cleansing ability to clear away negative or like I call ‘old’ energy.  Energy that we are ready to let go of, it helped us, but is no longer needed.  We intend for this energy to go to Heaven or Mother Earth to be healed too.  This is also a blessing to each other that we do this FOR each other in love and devotion to the cleansing of ourselves and our world, together as one.

Oscar went around the circle making sure all the instruments received cleaning and blessing too.

It’s quite a perfect experience.  We also just had a lot of fun smoking each other with the sage and feeling our stresses and worries drift away with the smoke.  Some had not done this before so it was a completely new experience and others had done this many times.  Even the kids got to experience something entirely new to them, opening up their boxes of life experiences at a young age.

Drumming for Healing

“Sound is the medicine of the future.” Edgar Cayce

Divine told me to get out of my chair and drum on each person in the circle.  So, I listened. It was better for me too since moving around is preferable for me to sitting.  It was healing for me to be able to move and dance to the beat of the drums.
Divine told me to get out of my chair and drum on each person in the circle. So, I listened. It was better for me too since moving around is preferable for me to sitting. It was healing for me to be able to move and dance to the beat of the drums.

I truly believe, because my guides have been telling me for about two years and getting stronger and stronger in their messages the more I listen, that sound is the medicine of the future.  They are doing great research about how different sound frequencies heal different diseases.  (Click on the link on ‘frequencies heal’ to watch a 17 min. video of how sound shatters cancer cells.  It is incredible.)  It is working against cancer and other diseases such as bacterial infections.

Really getting into the flow of the energy, melding our vibrations together in music and vibrations for healing.  When we are all in the trance of the drumming the playing takes on a life of it's own and we are able to drum from intuition.

Therefore, I truly believe in the healing power of the drum and other musical instruments and machines that create vibration.  When we are feeling joy, bliss and spiritual connection at the same time, such as during a spiritual community event like a drum circle, we can only be lifted up and healed by the process.

Reiki and Drumming

By running our Reiki while drumming we are assured to be safe from taking on

any energies that are leaving the other people who are being healed as well as our own.  The Reiki and our Reiki guides take this energy to the perfect place for it to be healed itself and recycled into love and light again.  It’s a win/win for all involved.  While running our Reiki during spiritual activities like drumming we also are able to receive intuitive information that is much-needed.  For me this came in messages about getting up and drumming over each person.  Then it came in the form of who needed drumming most and where on their body they needed it.

I listened and the people who needed the stronger vibrations of my Reiki Attuned drum, got them.  One person said when my drum was over their head vibrating it felt like golden Divine Light was streaming into his crown.  That was a radiant personal example of why we run Reiki while doing ANY other spiritual activity.  Reiki brings Spiritual Power, Protection and Support!!

Fun and Games

After three rounds of healing drumming we took a break and Oscar Hammer, a

Reiki Master too, led us in a game called King Elephant.  It was funny, hilarious and we were all cracking up by the end.  Here is a link to HOW to play King Elephant but we picked our own animals and signs and stood up.  Here is a link to a very large group playing King Elephant where each circle of people is assigned to one animal.  Challenging but  a total blast.

Winding Up

We had some casual mix and mingle time where Reiki people got to meet and talk with other Reiki people.  Then some of us did another round of drumming and some of us kept connecting through talk.  It was, speaking for myself at least, a truly blessed evening.  I slept like a baby too.

People who wanted stronger vibrations for healing were invited to sit in the center and feel the vibrations coming from all sides.  Then I would bring my Reiki Attuned drum and play on the chakras I was guided to play to.

I’ve gotta say,  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.
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,

Last week we had a special treat in our small town of Sequim, WA.  (Sk-wim)  A new couple who moved to Sequim from Texas recently hosted a crystal bowl introduction and healing circle.  Pat Coughlin Mawson is a certified Hypnotherapist and apparently her and her husband also have a passion for sound healing.  They’ve only been here four months and are already holding community events.  I’m very excited about sound healing and have wonderful memories from the powerful singing bowl healing I had in Sedona, AZ eight years ago.  So, even though my mom was visiting, I felt strongly that I needed to attend this healing session.  Luckily my mom was pretty open to a new experience and decided to come with me, along with eleven Reiki friends.

Me with my mom.  I'm playing the quartz crystal bowl which everyone kept saying sounded like it was talking.  This was my first time successfully playing the singing bowls.  Once I got a few tips, it was quite easy.  There were six bowls total and two of them were very large.  If I couldn't tell if my bowl was 'working' I'd hold the balloon up close and could feel the vibrations of the balloon much easier.I could hear the bowls that were not near me easier than the one I was playing.

I could hear the bowls that were not near me easier than the one I was playing.  Their sound and vibrations were brilliant and powerful and just plain lovely to be around.

What a fabulous evening it was.  I’m so inspired I am now on the hunt for the perfect quartz crystal singing bowl for my Reiki room.  I can’t wait to incorporate this into my healing sessions along with my drum.  I have said it before, my guides have been giving me messages for the last couple of years that sound healing is the healing of the future.  I am starting now!  More about how it felt, continue reading.

Healing Power of Crystal Singing Bowls

from pamphlet by Pat Coughlin-Mawson, C.Ht.

Crystal singing bowls are made of pure quartz.  The human body has many crystalline structures, such as our bones, DNA, and blood.  These structures have a natural resonance with quartz.  Even our cells contain silica, the same substance found in quartz.  These natural affinities make these crystal singing bowls naturally healing to our bodies.  Quartz crystal singing bowls, unlike their Tibetan counterparts, can also be tuned to a specific note.  This makes them perfect for sound healing and the balancing of specific chakras.

Research on Healing with Sound

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, the Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Strang-Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York, has done extensive research on singing bowls and their effects on the body and emotions.  He has found, we are bombarded with disharmony on a daily basis.  We all have a natural inner harmony.  But, every day, day in and day out, we are exposed to disharmony-loud noises, horns honking, people yelling, doors slamming, and on and on.  All these noises generate vibrations which our body feels.  disharmony is inevitable.  If we return harmony to our body, our lives can be transformed.  Singing bowls show astounding results for helping bring harmony back to our bodies.  Dr. Gaynor has used singing bowls with his patients with astounding results.  A diagnosis of cancer can create an extraordinary fear in a patient.  When Dr. Gaynor treats them with singing bowls, they are suddenly relieved of their fear and able to live in the moment.  He has seen marital problems, job related stress or illness relieved.  Everything in our lives can be transformed when we are in harmony.

For more about Dr. Gaynor’s research and sound healing look into his book The Healing Power of Sound.  I got it for about $9 on Amazon used.  

Experience

Many of the people were able to put their feet in the bowls and feel the vibrations throughout their whole body.  My friend Gigi  did this and said it tickled.  I heard others say that they felt vibrations radiating through their entire being all at the same time.

The crystal singing bowls is one of those healings that you just have to experience for yourselves.  Pat and her husband plan to do these healings once per quarter if you’d like to get on their email list.  Or get on mine and I’ll forward the event updates to you.  We all got a chance to sit in the center of all the bowls going all at once.  I could hear each of them in their own magnificent way and feel the vibrations coming from all sides.  I could feel it through my whole body at times, at other times I could feel it working in my chakras.  It was intense.  I felt my chakras opening up, I felt the healing energy moving through me and I felt myself fill with such gratitude  that I started to tear up and weep.  This often happens for me when I feel such powerful gratitude coming from Divine healing.  It is the greatest, fullest, most loving feeling I have experienced.  So magnificent and helps me feel one with our Divine Source.

Run Your Reiki Too

Of course, I bring my Reiki and my Reiki guides with me to any healing session. I typically activate the Reiki prior to going in or if I forget, I’ll do it before the session begins.  The Reiki surrounds me with spiritual power so I can bring in the best and most beautiful of the vibrations and let go of all the ‘old’ and unneeded energy.  The Reiki brings in powerful Divine protection to make sure I don’t take on any energy from other people in the group and to make sure that all ‘old’ energy that leaves me goes to the highest and best place possible for healing.  I send mine to Mother Earth or to the Angels to take it to Heaven to be “recycled” into love again. The Reiki also fills and surrounds me with spiritual support; intuitive ideas, guidelines, visions and suggestions for getting the most out of my experience.  Such as, which intention to work with, when exactly my chakras are open and ready to move into the center for healing, etc.  Reiki is with me throughout the whole experience making sure it is ALL IN PERFECT  DIVINE ORDER and that I leave feeling blissful and healed.  This is a particularly important step if you are a sensitive person.

Experiencing or Buying a Singing Bowl

I recommend, just like with stones, finding a place that sells bowls if you want to try them.  Play them all that are available to play and get a feel for the vibration.  If you want to purchase one, choose with your intuition.  Choose the one that you are drawn to the most.  Walk away for a bit and look at other things in the store.  The bowl that you keep thinking about, that is YOUR bowl.  If you do not have a place near by and want to purchase one off of the internet, again, use your intuition to select a site to buy from.  Pray to your Reiki guides or directly to your Higher Power to make sure they send you the perfect bowl for your healing.  Put emotion into it, let Divine know how you want to use the bowl and why you want it and TRUST that what you get is perfect for you and your needs.

I pray many of you get to experience these beautiful healing tools.  You may just fall in love like I did.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Peninsula Healer’s Circle – Learning about Pranic Healing

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

The Peninsula Healer’s Circle is a group of holistic/integrative healing practitioners living and working on the north Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.  To read more about our circle please read to the bottom of this blog.

Peninsula Healers Circle is currently meeting in the homes of the members.  This month the meeting was at my home in Sequim, WA.
Peninsula Healers Circle is currently meeting in the homes of the members. This month the meeting was at my home in Sequim, WA.

Monthly Meetings

Each month one of our members introduces a new topic for us to learn about other healing modalities.  This way we can decide how we feel about a certain modality and if we’d like to try it deeper with a private session with the practitioner or even refer clients or friends to them.  Sometimes the lessons are just for us to learn more about healing and some are just to have fun.  Healing comes in many forms.

Pranic Healing

This months speaker for the Peninsula Healer’s Circle was really special.  Gayle Nelson from Port Townsend, WA has been practicing Pranic Healing, an energy healing form from India, for six years.  PenHealerCircle8-14,2I was captured by her calm loving voice and her passion for what she was teaching.  She obviously has a great deal of love for this healing method and brought that to our group.  She guided us through a lovely twenty-minute meditation, taught us techniques for cleansing our energy, cutting cords and healing our chakras.  Gayle had everyone in the room involved, all working on their own energy bodies.  It was quite beautiful to watch all the hand movements of all the members working together at the same time.  This Pranic Healing demonstration was extra special for me since Pranic Healing was the first energy healing I experienced after waking up.  It really helped to get me started as an energy healer and be open and ready for when I found Reiki.PenHealerCircle8-14,4

If you’d like to reach Gayle for a session with her and Pranic Healing, she can be reached at gayle@pranichealing.com or 360-477-1872.

More about the Peninsula Healer’s Circle:

Our goals for the group are: 

  • to build a mutually supportive community of healers
  • to develop a more in-depth understanding of the different healing modalities offered by members of the circle
  • to offer a site where people can locate healing practitioners  of various modalities in our area

Reiki in the Walls – New or Add On Construction

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki

Thank you so much for your Reiki questions via comments and emails.  A recent email question gave me the idea for this blog.  A new Reiki Master was building a new home and wanted to know if they could put Reiki into the walls before the drywall went up and if so HOW?  The HOW is my thing. I love writing about the HOW because it helps to open up people’s boxes about what to use your Reiki for and how easy it is.

Yes!

Put Reiki into all aspects of construction when adding on a room to your home, especially if the room will be used for spiritual work or sleep.
Put Reiki into all aspects of construction when adding on a room to your home, especially if the room will be used for spiritual work or sleep.

The answer is YES!  Definitely put Reiki in all aspects of the construction process of your home, add-on, office, what ever you are building where you will live, work or spend time.  Whether it’s one room you are adding on or a whole house.  Put as much Reiki in the construction of your home as possible from the cement, wood, walls, insulation, electrical, appliances, plumbing, etc.  Building a new home, what a fabulous opportunity to fill and surround your home with Love and Light.

Yes, I Have Done This For My Home

I did this when we added on the Reiki room to our house a few years ago.  It was only one room so it was pretty easy.  But, each day after the workmen would leave, I’d go out there with my ‘Reiki hands’ and do this process to the whole space and construction materials.  I do believe everyone who comes into the room to this day can FEEL the effects of the Reiki in the room.  I get comments on the energy in that room ALL THE TIME.  And, I can feel it myself every time I work in there.

Intention is EVERYTHING!!

Put Reiki into bricks and mortar walls too.
Put Reiki into bricks and mortar walls too.

Intention before and during the process is MOST IMPORTANT!!  Hold a positive loving intention for your space.  Be centered and grounded so you are not bringing stress in from other events in your life.  This will bring stress into the space and invite in not so loving energies.  This would be the opposite of what you want.  Be in a very loving place in your heart before you start the process.  Breath and be calm and with Divine.  ( I talk more about intention below, but, safe and sacred, calm and loving, grounded and centered, loving family space, are all positive intentions you can start with.)

HOW to Reiki Construction On Your Home Under Construction
Put Reiki into the walls and windows.  Seal Doors and windows with the Power Symbol with the intention of protecting the home and occupants.
Put Reiki into the walls and windows. Seal Doors and windows with the Power Symbol with the intention of protecting the home and occupants.

Remember, with Reiki, there is no wrong way.  This is one way I have come up with that works for me.  If it does not feel right then tweak it or change it to feel right for you and your situation.  This process is intended for people with Reiki symbols but I have put added ways to do this if you do not have symbols.  Having Reiki symbols with this particular process will make it faster and easier and you can typically run more energy with a Reiki II attunement, but it is not required.  Anyone can do this with a Reiki I and some time and intention.

  1. Stand in the space quietly, connecting with the space that is your home or going to be your home.  Honor your home and ask it for its permission to bring Love and Light into it with Reiki.  This is showing respect for your home, the space, the land and the spirit guides who watch over your space.
  2. If you were taught the Gassho, prayer position, put your hands in prayer position and ground yourself to Divine Source and to Mother Earth both.  Make sure you are nicely grounded and feel very focused and centered in your heart.  Very  present in the NOW.
  3. While in Gassho, ask Divine to send down the Reiki with the intention of filling the structure with Love and Light, Power, Protection and Support.  Safe and Sacred Space is another one.
  4. Move your prayer position up to your third eye and ask Divine to send down the Highest Spiritual Form of Reiki Guides and Angels to help you and guide you through this process.  Thank them before and after the session.
  5. Prayer position back to your heart  – chant the symbols starting with your Master symbol/s until you feel the Reiki flowing.  If you do not have symbols yet, this process will still work, just get your Reiki running with the positive intention and let it flow.
  6. If you have a Reiki II training or above, then draw CKR, the power symbol, in front of each of your chakras starting with the root and ending with the crown and motion it into your chakras.  Draw once, say or chant name three times and motion in to the chakra.  After the crown put a very large CKR towards your whole body.  This is energizing your whole system and helps you to run more Reiki and stronger and faster for this process.  I do this before attunements and setting space and any time I feel tired.  REIKI I LEVEL – If you have a Reiki level I then run energy on all your chakras for at least thirty seconds each, with the intention of energizing your chakras for running lots of Reiki through you.
  7. REIKI II LEVELDraw in the air one at a time each symbol, starting with the highest symbol you have DKM (Master Symbol) or HSZSN (Long Distance Symbol) and going down to the SHK (Mental/Emotional Symbol) for cleansing and calm and sacred, then to  CKR (Power Symbol for sealing and protecting.  Draw each one in the air one time, chant the name three times and visualize it floating in the air.  Then do the next and the next symbol until all symbols are floating in the air.  INTEND for them to float through the air for a couple of days at least supporting you in this process.  You can even ask them to follow you from room to room as you move through the house.  REIKI I LEVELImagine flowing the Reiki out of your palms and into the room you’ll be working in, filling the room with Reiki for help and guidance throughout the process.  Intend; blissful space, sacred space, calm and clean space, safe and protected space.
  8. Start in the room that is most important to you spiritually.  Imagine your Reiki flowing out of your hands like paint from a paint gun, thick and full and filling all spaces easily.  Imagine beautiful calm and sacred colors flowing out of your hand chakras towards the walls, ceilings, floors and all the space you are in.  I usually start with one wall, then move to another until all four are done.  Then I do the ceiling, floor and the inner space.  Do windows and doors, imagining the Reiki surrounding them with protection.  All Love and Light may come in but lower energies cannot.
  9. If you are attuned to Reiki III,  start with Usui DKM (Master Symbol) for blessing the space or CKR (Power Symbol) if Reiki II also for blessing the space, then SHK (Mental/Emotional Symbol) for cleansing and emotional healing, then CKR (Power Symbol) again for sealing with power, protection and support.  That is how I do it.  (Then I run all my Reiki symbols through the walls and space the same way.  It is up to you how much time you have and how many symbols you put it.  The more the merrier I say but depending upon how much time alone you have in the space, do what feels right.  Getting the three in the walls first is important.  This paint process is fast and beautiful and feels so nice.  You can do a room with a lot of intention in about 15 to 20 minutes each.  Faster if you are in a hurry.  Take more time in the rooms where you will sleep and meditate.
  10. Permanent Symbols – Some of you may want to put drawings or pictures of the Reiki symbols in the walls.  I feel this is fine.  I actually sat in meditation and talked to my guides about this and they thought it was a great idea.  You can spray paint them in the walls before the insulation goes up, pin-up pictures of the symbols on the walls beforehand and any other spiritual symbols that you feel adds Love and Light to the space permanently: Om, Reiki Guides, Usui Sensei, hearts, spiral, sun, etc.  Whatever relates to you and adds positive energy is great.  You may cover them with paper or some kind of covering if you are concerned about other people seeing. That is a personal preference.  Most people who will be in the house working on it won’t know what the symbols are and they won’t really even register with them if they see them.  But, do what feels right to you.  The symbols are sacred to us who work with Reiki, but they are no longer a secret.  They can be seen many places but rarely do people recognize them unless they have knowledge of Reiki and/or the symbols are part of their subconscious mind.  It’s all good.  Go with your intuition on this one.  I trust you and Reiki trusts you.
  11. Hold the intention that this Reiki is permanent Love and Light that is now vibrating through your home, land and space forever!
  12. Thank your, home, your guides and your Reiki.

QUICK TIP – Don’t try to do the whole house in one day unless you are truly in a time crunch.  Put more time into the spiritual rooms if you have to do this.  Otherwise, do the three symbols in all the rooms and go back to the most important rooms if you end up having more time.

Anything you do is better than nothing so no worries.
You can also do it after the drywall if you run out of time.  Just imagine the Reiki flowing through the walls and filling every space inside, like filling the cells of your body, but filling wall, boards, electrical, plumbing and insulation instead.
I don’t know what you have been taught by your teacher so hopefully some of this you already know.  I figure more is better and you can adjust it from here.
I would love to hear from you if you try this on your new or add-on construction, please comment here as to how it felt for you and how the process worked.
Love and Light to you,

Reiki Quick Tip -Reiki Pick Me Up

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki

We all have those days or times of the day when we don’t feel at our best.  Many people use coffee or other pick me ups to get them through.  My body doesn’t tolerate many of them, especially caffeine so I have had to come up with alternatives.  Apples give a great boost, just like having a cup of coffee.  I have an apple a day, usually for lunch.  But at about that 3pm mark, I still get the sluggish tired feeling.  Reiki is a great pick me up and I’ve already written how it can be like having three cups of coffee in one of my blogs which you can click and read.

But, this blog is about a simple and quick technique to do when you don’t have time to do a full healing or even a fifteen minute healing.  When you are stuck for time, here is a quick, less than five-minute Reiki Pick Me Up that anyone can use who is attuned to Reiki to give them that extra boost of energy when they are feeling down.  I use this technique often.

HOW

For Reiki I

  1. Sit in your Gassho, center and ground yourself and call in your Reiki guides of the highest order.
  2. Hold the intention that you want the Reiki energy to give you a boost in energy to get you through the day or whatever intention you feel is best for you for the greatest good.
  3. Starting with your root chakra run Reiki energy in your chakras from bottom to top for as long as you feel necessary or for about thirty seconds. (If top to bottom feels better to you, then do that. It’s all good and there is no wrong.)
  4. After running Reiki on your crown chakra run Reiki all throughout your aura with the intention of energizing you.
  5. Closing Gassho and go!

For Reiki IIChakrasLabeled

  1. Sit in your Gassho, center and ground yourself, and call in your Reiki guides of the highest order.
  2. Activate your symbols in whatever way works best for you until you feel the energy in your hands.
  3. Starting with your root chakra draw the CKR Power Symbol,  in your chakras from bottom to top. (If top to bottom feels better to you, then do that. It’s all good and there is no wrong.)
  4. After drawing CKR in your last chakra, draw a large CKR in front of you activating it and bringing it into your body and aura.
  5. Do your closing Gassho and go!

I Pray many of you give this a try when you are needing that pick me up and that it helps.  Let me know how it works for you.

Love, Light and Blessings to all of you,

Joss

A BIG THANK YOU to my teacher, Catherine Morris, for teaching me this technique as part of our attunement process.  So grateful for ALL you have taught me!!

Reiki Quick Tip – Judge and Jury

By Josslyn Streett of Rain Shadow Reiki

Faceless Judge

I’ve heard a lot of people lately saying “I don’t like them” about another person or even group of people.  I’m more acutely aware of this because I’ve been working on this myself lately -JUDGEMENT.  Yes, it’s a big one for me.  How about you?  Would you admit to judging others?

Most people do but rarely want to admit it, even to themselves, especially to themselves.  But, if we stay with judgement there is no room for learning or love.  See, we are both judge AND jury, but really only for ourselves.  It is not our place to judge others.  Each person does that for themselves.  But, when we judge others, we are actually judging ourselves.  Every single person even animals are mirrors for each of us to learn from.  But, if we stay asleep, stay in a place of judgement, pointing fingers, we never learn what we need to in order to progress spiritually.

Pointing fingers is a form of judgement, but usually of yourself

So, HOW do we work on this area of ourselves?  Easy, with Reiki of course!

Here is a process I use and it works great.  Always feel free to add or delete parts of my processes that don’t feel right to you and add in parts that do feel right.  Make it your own.  Feel free to lovingly comment here if you add something that works great for you.

HOW TO CHANGE JUDGEMENT INTO SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION

We judge so we can learn about ourselves. See it differently and it will BE different.
  1. Catch yourself in a judgement –  For example, “I don’t like them.”  Stop, catch yourself in the mode of judging.  Acknowledge that you are judging but without judging yourself.
  2. Ask the right questions –  Why do I not like them?” or “What is it about them that bothers me so much?”
  3. Answer honestly – Don’t be afraid of the answer because it may not even apply anymore.  It may be from your past or even a past life.  Most of the time it no longer applies but because we haven’t worked through the real issue, it’s still there.  “Wow, I don’t like them because they seem like kind of a push over, they don’t seem to stand up for themselves.
  4. Look in the mirror – How does this apply to you?  “When I was young I got bullied and I didn’t stand up for myself.  I was scared and did nothing.  I hate that I didn’t stand up for myself and others.  But, I’ve worked though that and don’t do that anymore.  I stand up for myself and my friends and family and feel much more confident.”
  5. Heal the situation – Now having more insight into the situation you can now heal it for you and the other person as well.  Even if you have not worked on the issue at all, sending healing is the best way to deal with it and move forward.

The Reiki Process

Artwork by Durga Lael Bernhard ,
  1. Get your Reiki started and if you are a Reiki II or above, chant the symbols that you feel will be needed here.  (I would use all three Reiki II symbols because they cover different aspects that are usually involved including the long distance symbol in case this is a past and very old issue.)
  2. Visualize your self at the original time frame of the situation in the palm of your hands getting bathed by the Reiki running out your palm chakras.  Include the person you thought you were judging as well.  (Send them love and Reiki healing, they were a mirror for you.)
  3. Hold the intention that ALL situations regarding this judgement are being healed as well, even if you don’t consciously remember them.
  4. Having new knowledge of the situation, send Reiki Love to the situation and the judgement you had with the intention of healing it, for as long as you need to.  If this is a big issue for you, you may want to do this multiple times a day for a week or at least once a day for a week.  5 minutes each session should be enough.  Do it at the same time each day when you won’t be disturbed, like right before bed time.
  5. Many times acknowledging the situation and bringing it to the forefront of your mind (out of the subconscious mind and into the conscious mind) does much of the healing for you mentally.  But, running Reiki energy, getting healing and help from Divine Source helps to heal you spiritually and emotionally.

  1. FEEL the Love and Light bathing the judgement, bathing you and everyone involved.  This process opens up your heart chakra allowing the healing to get to all the chakras that have been involved in the situation.  Opening the heart chakra AND holding the intention that you wish to heal this situation will allow healing to take place on all levels.  FEELING the emotion and LOVE is important.
  2. Practice the process as often as possible.  Pretty soon it will become a very positive habit and you will be loving everyone, especially yourself.

Give it a try.  Please let me know how it goes for you.  The HOW is only part of the process.  The DOING is up to you.

In Love and Light,

Josslyn Streett
