Wellness Fair Saturday in Sequim, WA

 

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS BELOW……

If you are local to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, where Rain Shadow Reiki lives, we are participating in a FREE COMMUNITY EVENT that is much needed and greatly appreciated.  When I moved to Sequim, WA in 2008 and started doing Reiki I quickly realized that there were many holistic practitioners here, they just quietly did their own thing mostly in their homes.  That’s pretty much what I do too, although I’ve built a strong Reiki community on line as well as locally in person, it makes us stronger to mix, mingle and learn from other healers.  

So, IF you are anywhere near the Olympic Peninsula this weekend, please stop by and strengthen yourself and our community by coming to the FREE WELLNESS FAIR at Blue Mountain Yoga and the ribbon cutting for their newly reopened business.  Julia is the somewhat new owner, buying the business during the quarantines, courageous.  Community is important to her as she is creating a home for other healing and spiritual practitioners as well as yoga.

Julia has done a beautiful job in gathering healers of all different modalities to contribute to the talks, demonstrations and activities.  I will be talking and doing a Reiki plus Psychic Energy Healing demonstration at 11am.  Be early, I want to start at 11 sharp so we can do as much energy healing as possible.  Everyone will get healing (if they choose) and maybe get some psychic information too.  I with my  students will also be doing FREE mini Reiki chair sessions and FREE mini psychic reading/healings from 12:30pm to 4pm at our booth.  Look for the big Amethyst crystal!! That’s us!!

SO MUCH GREAT STUFF, CHECK OUT LAUREN’S CHAKRA DANCE DEMO, IT’S AMAZING!!!!!!

IF you are not able to come, please check out the websites with links below and paroose their sites and see if they resonate with you.  So much healing talent on the Peninsula, I’m proud to be here working and living in this beautiful part of the country.

Love and Light, Josslyn

REIKI I – Reiki For Movement

For Rain Shadow Reiki Energy Healing Center in Sequim, WA (All classes, workshops and readings available online)

REIKI UN DO!!! (ooon doe)

How many of you remember learning how to use ‘REIKI UN DO’ in your Reiki Class?

In Reiki I there is so much to learn and it’s ALL NEW and more than a little overwhelming, that we often forget much of it.  

Moving our bodies heals us just in the act in DOING it.  But, what if we could heal our body deeper, safer and with Divine Guidance with us the whole time? Yes, of course we can.  Reiki does just that.  Reiki Un-do is a quick, easy ‘short cut’ and when we say it, we can say it with POWER and that helps too.  Reiki Un-do is one of the tools we can work with to help our movement/exercise to be a deeper healing practice.  

Reiki Un Do helps us get motivated, helps us heal through many incarnations while moving, and get to all levels that are ready, willing and able to be healed in the moment.  Reiki Un-do is one of these tools that I see people forgetting they have learned in Reiki I and maybe some teachers don’t teach it so you didn’t learn it.  But, in daily life, it’s one of the ones I use consistently.

It’s another way to easily TURN ON our Reiki.  

MY REIKI PROCESS – First thing in the morning I roll out of bed and literally get on the floor to start my Physical Therapy exercises before I do anything else, otherwise honestly, they may not get done at all.  I rarely even bring in my Reiki with my Gassho first.  SO, I say happily out loud or in my mind, “REIKI UN-DO!” and I know Reiki is with me and helping me exercise, also helping to motivate me.  That’s the minimum I do.  Sometimes I’ll do more, if I am feeling it.  Here are other ways I start my Reiki for movement:

  1. “Reiki Un-Do” means, for me, “Reiki please move with me, heal me !”
  2. When I do more, I’ll say “Thank you Reiki for helping this exercise make me stronger, healthier, happier, etc.” (Place in your own intentions for your movement.”
  3. When I put on music, I’ll say “Reiki Un-Do, Reiki Dance with me!”
  4. Sometimes I’ll talk to Reiki more while I’m moving and sometimes that’s all I do.  It depends upon how I feel that day and time.
Bring Reiki while doing ANY movement activity!! Reiki brings; healing, spiritual power, safe and sacred space and intuitive guidance.  But, it also, always respects the soul’s own Free Will.  It won’t go against our soul’s plan even if you want it to. 

 

WHY do we want to make the extra effort to bring in Reiki while we move?

  1. Reiki brings Spiritual Power when you call it in.  It will help remind you to exercise if you ask it to.  It will help you feel spiritually powerful enough to go to the next level or take on a new exercise program or class.
  2. Reiki brings Healing with it.  Any exercise will go deeper in your healing process then if you do not bring Reiki in.  It will heal you on all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually all at the same time, just because you bring Reiki in to move with you.  It helps you make the MOST of your time exercising.  Get maximum healing for the time you are doing it. (I do some of my deepest grieving/healing during my walking or dancing time. Movement HEALS US!)
  3. Reiki creates Safe and Sacred Space around you and for you while you are moving.  Protection from picking up other’s energy at the gym, protection from hurting yourself (Unless there is a healing opportunity that your soul chooses for you), and intuition for listening to your body while you are working out.

HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE, thank you for your questions, we love them!!

AND, hope this helps your exercise be a little more SPIRITUAL & FUN!!!

Love and Light,

Josslyn and Ellen, Amber & Bren, Reiki Master Teachers for Rain Shadow Reiki

Reiki For Cancer – Testimonials

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

Lately I have been hearing way too many diagnosis’ of cancer, more than usual it seems.  About three new ones per week from friends, family, students and clients.  In my own immediate family, as well, my own father has been diagnosed with Leukemia just this past June.

Positive reinforcement word Believe in Miracles engrained in a rock

It is a challenging time for many people.  I Thank God every day that I have Reiki to support me and to offer to others.  But, I also have had enough ‘proof’ in my life and my client’s lives that Reiki helps in so many ways, that I understand and believe in the powerful healing that can take place when working with Reiki regularly and diligently.  But, even with my strong faith, really difficult times challenge me like anyone else and reading testimonials like these, from people who have been cured, really help us to keep hope alive.
GoodThingsCometothosewhoBelieve

Reiki Practitioners are not allowed to claim anything healing with Reiki, other than stress relief.  However, I can talk about my personal experience.  And, what I do know from my personal experience, working with my clients who have had cancer, is that Reiki helps in so many ways and it’s different for every person and situation.  I have seen Reiki give people exactly what they need most in each situation:

  • For some of my clients it has helped them get a much-needed nights sleep.
  • For some the Reiki helps them feel calmer and more hopeful.
  • For others it helps them get intuitive ideas about their treatments or doctors to choose.
  • Some clients recover from their surgeries faster and with less prescription pain medication.
  • For many it has helped them have less side effects from the chemo.
  • And for others, it helps them to forgive and forget, heal their ‘God’ issues and transition to Heaven with more peace in their hearts.
  • And for some, yes, they beat it and live cancer free for a long happy life.

These are just what I have personally experienced as a Reiki practitioner working with my clients fighting cancer over the past ten years of practicing.

KeepCalmBelieveInMiraclesOceanReading other people’s success stories, I have found, helps me to have an uplifted spirit, enough to have hope and hope can aid us in forging forward even through the most difficult times.  So, in that spirit, I share two success stories from people who were actually spontaneously cured with the help of Reiki and some Reiki practitioners who were there to accept the call.

I post these stories in honor of my father who is on my mind and in my heart every single day.

I’m here to facilitate your healing if you need some support in that,  I do understand life’s daily challenges first hand and how to find joy in the healing process.  If you need a Reiki practitioner to work with, locally or long distance, I’m happy to be considered to aid in your healing or spiritual path.

Blessings to you all, Josslyn, Reiki Master/Teacher

These Two Stories have been Copied from The Reiki News Magazine Winter 2014 p. 69

These stories were documented by before and after medical tests and the observations of licensed health care providers.  Please note that while Reiki can cause miraculous healing, it does not always do so.  However most patients receive some level of healing with the minimum benefit being relaxation and stress reduction.  If you have a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that you use Reiki in conjunction with the help of a licensed health care provider.

Reiki and Prostate Cancer

With the thought of promoting Reiki, I called an assisted living center to offer an Introduction to Reiki class with free mini-Reiki sessions.  When I asked the social director if he was familiar with Reiki, he said, “Let me tell you my story,” and proceeded to tell me that he had been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer.  His massage therapist, a Reiki Level II practitioner, had been told by a psychic that he (the social director) needed to receive three treatments in close succession by three Reiki healers.

Based on his story, I quickly set things in motion and our team gave him Reiki on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  No other treatment was given.  Prior to his Reiki treatment, his Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test results showed a level of 4.0 and his doctor diagnosed that he had a prostate cancer.  The Monday after we completed the three treatments he was again tested.  On the following Wednesday he called to say the test results showed 0.3 and that he was free of cancer.  He remarked that in all of his life the test results had never been that low.  I am so honored to have been a part of his healing.  I feel honored to be called by Reiki, a major part of my life.  –Phran Gacher, Stamford, Connecticut

Reiki and Uterine Cancer

Six years ago while a Level II Reiki healer I witnessed an extraordinary healing of a woman diagnosed with cancer.  My Reiki Master (Colleen Chauntler of Gladstone, Australia) was staying with me at the time.  A woman was brought to my home presenting a distended lower abdomen, and we were told by her friends that she has been sick for some months.  In the week prior to this visit she had a scan and had been told by doctors that she had a large tumor in her uterus that was probably cancerous.  Surgery was planned for the following week.  We decided to give her three sessions of Reiki healing throughout the week, hoping that would encourage rapid healing for her after her surgery.  Rather than the usual hand positions, the three of us who worked on her decided to focus on only three areas — my Reiki Master held her hands on the patient’s lower abdomen, I had my hands on her head (crown) and another Level II healer (Sharon Honatana) was at her feet.  We stayed like that for approximately an hour each session.

On the day she was to check in to the hospital I saw an area of large, black energy in the shape of a ball and surrounded by what appeared to be sparking energy lift from her abdomen and rise up into the air.  It kept rising and then disappeared through the ceiling of the room.  I asked if anyone else had seen it and each of the others confirmed the same thing, including the patient.  She duly went on to check into the hospital, and when examined her they could not feel the tumor; they sent her for a scan and it had gone.  She told us with great humor that the doctors were arguing and quite flustered at the result.  They eventually went on to do an exploratory operation but no tumor could be found.  She had therapy for the few cancer cells that they did fine and is fit and healthy now.  The woman believes she was healed by Satya Sai Baba and Reiki.  On the night before her last session she said she dreamed she was in her car and it was teetering on the edge of a cliff.  Below her was blackness; in her rearview mirror she could see a long road, and walking along this road was Sai Baba.  he came toward her car and stood looking at her.  She cried out to him to help her and he reached down and pulled her car off the edge of the cliff and placed it back on the road. –Penelope (Penny) Hayward

WE LOVE REIKI ! REIKI II CLASS FEBRUARY 2015

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

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

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

 

Here are some testimonials from them and their Reiki recipients:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Josslyn Streett, incredibly grateful to be a Reiki Teacher

Questions For the Healer – Pee Much?

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

Gotta keep it light!!

STOP TO PEE!  He's just to o cute not to share.
STOP TO PEE! He’s just too cute not to share.

I giggled when my client asked me this question and then quickly answered it for her when I realized she was serious.  But when it came up again in Reiki II class the other day, I thought, “Hmmm, I bet other new practitioners may be wondering about this too.”  I mean, what do you do with the client’s energy if it is a long distance session, while you are gone taking care of business?

PEE MUCH?

Yes, I do have to use the restroom sometimes while in the middle of a healing.  It doesn’t happen very often, I’m pretty good about going right before a session but it is not always possible to regulate your liquids in such a way that you never have to go during a session.  And, if your bladder is bothering you during a session, the Reiki may not flow as easily, or it may flow better.  LOL, everyone is different.  But it is possible to come ungrounded or uncentered because you are focused more on your bladder than your Reiki and client.  So, it’s good to know, you can excuse yourself respectfully and take care of business.

The Reiki and tears may flow from clients on the table, but some things are best taken care of out of the Reiki room.  This post I just thought was a little too weird not to include it.
The Reiki and tears may flow from clients on the table, but some things are best taken care of out of the Reiki room. This post I just thought was a little too weird not to include it.  Don’t try to hold it.

Here is what I do if I do have to use the restroom during a session, in person or over the phone.  Just in case you wanted to know.

My HOW:  I’m sure there are many ways to do this and now that you’ve had your attention drawn to it, you’ll probably get to practice it.  Here is my way of doing this.

  1. Tell the client that you need to use the restroom and ask if they too want to get up and use the facilities.  Quite often they need to go also. (Please don’t try to sneak off, this is disrespectful to your client and does not build trust.)
  2. Ask Divine Source and your Reiki guides to surround and protect the space, the client’s energy and  yours, while you exit the healing space.  Visualize clear bubbles of love and light surrounding both of you.
  3. Long Distance Sessions – If the client is long distance and I am holding their life force energy in my hands, I find a safe place to put their energy such as on a pillow or on the couch next to me, I call on Divine Source or my Reiki guides to hold their energy in a small ball of Light for me while I go to the bathroom.  Just like if the energy were being held in my own hands.
  4. Wash your hands really well after you use the bathroom.  Do not be in such a hurry that you forget this important step.  Wash with intention, repeating a positive intention, such as “clean and clear.”  Feel that mantra while cleaning your hands.  Reiki guides can help you with this if you ask them.
  5. When you come back, take a moment to readjust to their energy field so you can feel it again just as strongly as you did before.  Take a moment to run some Reiki on their energy or chant silently the Power Symbol (CKR) or just the intention of ‘more power’ and you will very quickly be right back where you left off.

thank you FUNNYASDUCK.NET for this funny photo

RELIEF

It’s pretty simple and I’m sure many of you would have figured this out with the help of your Reiki guides.  But, lets see how many of you after reading this, all of a sudden get a chance to practice this now that it is in your conscious mind.  So, now you can happily excuse yourself to go pee and feel good about it too.

 

QUESTIONS?  ANYONE?

I love answering questions from my readers, clients and students.  Please feel free to ask here on the comment section or email me.  I will not use your name or can just use your initials, but many people can learn from YOUR questions.  I look forward to any questions of Love and Light about Reiki or spiritual work.  If I don’t know the answer I will ask some of my other healer/psychic friends or, my guides, or just tell you that I don’t know.  Often times I can go into meditation and ask my guides.  Please don’t ask me who killed J.F.K.  That’s been done.

Blessings to you all, thank you for reading,

Josslyn

Q & A – Reiki with Medicine

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

QUESTION:
Hi Josslyn,

Thank you for sending Reiki to our dog with Parvo.  Our other dogs are positive already so we are going to call the vet to administer medication to them. Is it ok to give reiki while they are in medication? Will Reiki wear off the effectiveness of the vaccine?
Please send positive healing energies to my dogs. 🙁 I am really worried about them.
Thank you so much.
Kindest regards,
J.S. from the Philippines
ANSWER:
Hi J.S.,
Please be reassured, Reiki will not interfere in medication working in any way, if you are attuned to Reiki do it as much as you can.  In fact by doing Reiki on your pets and their medicine you help to bring them in to balance with each other (positive vibrations working together as one).   Reiki is healing energy directly from our Creator. This means, it is intelligent energy from a Divine Source, knows exactly what is needed for each pet and it does not harm ever.
Thank you for your care and concern for your pets, I’m happy to do what I can as the channel for the Reiki.
Blessings,
Josslyn

Recipes I Like – Roasted Acorn Squash with Portobello Mushroom

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

I absolutely LOVE the fall!  I love the colors, the flavors and even the weather here in the Pacific North West, which lately has been a lot of rain. Not typical for Sunny Sequim.

Being with spiritual friends recently sharing a condo and cooking together at a healing retreat, I made this dish for them and they all wanted the recipe.  I decided it would be easier to share it with everyone, and then I realized I already had on a blog two years ago when I was doing a cleanse.  But, decided to post it again by itself because it’s so good, it deserves its own blog.  This recipe is a great reminder that healthy food can be delicious and easy to prepare too.  Pray you enjoy this as much as my family does.

“I wondered, “Why have I been chasing happiness my whole life when bliss was here the entire time?” 
 – Elizabeth Gilbert from “Eat, Pray, Love”

Acorn Squash with Portobello Mushrooms
Acorn Squash with Portobello Mushrooms

I got this recipe from www.jointhereboot.com two years ago when I was participating in a 15 day juice cleanse with Joe Cross from the movie “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”  (The movie is well worth watching)  Most of the food on the pre-cleanse was truly wonderful, but this is my favorite recipe from the whole cleanse, along with the juices we made.  Yum!  It’s healthy and easy to make.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and I do, it would be a great Thanksgiving add-on for sure.

Don’t forget to run your Reiki when you cook, adding Divine Love and Light to every dish you prepare.  Reiki in your food helps to cleans out any toxins and boosts the nutrients to the vibrational level of your body so your body gets the best out of your food.  It’s a win/win!

Blessings to all my Reiki friends,

Josslyn

Crystal Bowl Healing Circle in Sequim, WA

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

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

Energy Healers Circle, Hand Massage

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

We had another great Energy Healers Circle today.  Healers of all sorts on the Peninsula coming together to learn, support and refer for each other, it’s AWESOME!  If you are a healer on the Olympic Peninsula and you want to get to know other healers, email me and I’ll put you on the list.  It’s an old group going through some changes and we are really excited about local healers working together and learning from each other.

HealersCircleMay2014,2Hand Massage

Today, Carleen Godwin, retired massage therapist,  taught us how to relax just about anyone with a simple hand massage.  This technique is simple to learn, anyone can do it confidently and I am proof of that.  Evidence suggests even a simple ten-minute hand massage can go a long way in helping people with dementia feel calmer and more connected with others and their immediate environment.  (Suzuki 2010)

HealersCircleMay2014,1We all got a massage and we all got to practice too.  It was really great.  Especially for me, I had two people working on me at the same time.  Oh yeah!!

Share and tell your healer friends, we would love to see many more healers join us the third Friday of every month at 9am.  We have different learning topics each month and opportunities to get to know each other.  This has been a goal of mine since I moved here five years ago, I’m just really grateful to have found these amazing women.  Looking forward to meeting more.

Blessings, Joss

Quotes I Like – Reiki Simplicity

Book- The Spirit of Reiki“Several reasons can explain why the Reiki power has been able to bring the world together. The most obvious of all is that it is so simple. In Dr. Usui’s own words, ‘everyone can learn and practice Reiki.The second reason is that Reiki brings results. The results are the healing of the physical, mental, and emotional bodies with all their states of pleasure, pain, health, and disease. Reiki heals the present, as well as the past and the future. It heals the healthy and the sick, the wealthy and the poor, and the young and the old. It heals the Hindu, the Christian, the Buddhist, the Muslim, and the Jew – no matter where they live and what they do. Reiki has transcended these divisions and brought together all religions, races , and people who live and love across the vast expanses of this planet.” Frank Arjava Petter in “The Spirit of Reiki”
