My First Teen Reiki Class

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

I’ve had enough middle schoolers interested in Reiki lately to have a class just for them.  Most of them have parents who are students or clients of mine, or both.  This works best I have found as the parents and kids can do Reiki together at home and reinforce the practice of Reiki together.  These kids are amazing as you could have probably guessed.  They know they are different from other kids in many ways but spiritually is definitely one of them.  It is not always easy for teens to talk to other kids about spiritual issues.  At Reiki circle they get the chance to talk openly about their spiritual beliefs with no one making fun of them or condemning their thoughts and actions.  It’s a very open and safe forum for everyone.

“I am grateful for Teen Reiki class that I was able to be here with these wonderful people and have this experience. I’m grateful for Reiki because it can be used for healing and cannot be used to harm. And I will always have it with me, because it is an infinite source.”  E. W., age 12 1/2

Teen Class

After introductions, we started the class by teaching the kids a blessing ritual to cleanse our auras with sage.  Then we moved on to measuring each person’s aura with diving rods.  We talked about how to work with spiritual tools in a safe and effective way.  They learned how to bring in their God for protection beforehand, how to program the divining rod for what they want to find and then to find it.  Each person got a turn with the rods.  We measured our auras before the class and again after the class.  Every single participant, including the parents, were able to increase their aura size by the end of class, most were able to double their aura size.  (We measured the auras the second time right after doing a self-treatment with Reiki.)  We talked about how when our auras are cleaner and clearer from doing Reiki, we are happier and healthier on all levels.  We also talked about other ways to achieve this such as; listening to beautiful or happy music, thinking positive thoughts, talking with a trusted friend, running Reiki on our food and drink, eating and drinking healthy food and  liquids, and getting plenty of exercise out-of-doors, just to name a few.

“I am so grateful that I now know how to run Reiki on anyone and anything.  I ‘love’ that it heals the body physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and you can use it on any animal, with their permission of course.  Josslyn is such a great teacher and person.  She has taught me so much today and that makes me happy.”  A.C. age 12 1/2

Favorite Part

To my surprise, a few of them said that the meditation was their favorite part of class.  I guess I thought the Reiki on animals or the diving rods would be their favorite part, but they really liked going into their minds and seeing what they ‘saw’ there.  That impressed me.  These teens proved to be deep and introspective when they shared what they saw in their meditations.  They were also very good at visualizing even with little or no prior experience.  Most of them asked to do more long meditations in the future at Reiki circle.

“I am grateful to be able to have this experience.  What I like most about Reiki is that it is an infinite Source, that is very reassuring.”  J.D. Age 14

Mandy’s Favorite Part

The feeling seemed to be mutual, Mandy loved the kids and the kids loved doing Reiki on Mandy.  She couldn't seem to get enough of it.

I can tell you for sure, our dog Mandy’s favorite part of class was when all the kids did Reiki on her for practice.  Mandy does love to be the pet example for animal Reiki classes.  She basks in it and soaks it up.  The teens also worked on our cat Cosmo but that was before I remembered to get the camera out and take photos.

Mandy kept moving around to show us where she wanted us to do Reiki on her.

I have found that after taking a Reiki class, kids tend to do Reiki most on their pets.  Unless they are encouraged by their parents, the children are a little more shy about doing Reiki on other people.  Even in class this seemed foreign to them, touching others in this new way.  This may take more help from their parents.  I like to encourage and help them along in it, not force them.  Working on pets is a beautiful gift to them and their pets.  If that is all they want to do with their Reiki, I’d say that is a whole lot.  But, I have also found that if I am truly hurting or in pain in some way and I ask my kids to do Reiki on me, they jump to any chance to be able to help me feel better.  If your kids have Reiki in their hands, ask them for help to feel better.  What a wonderful gift they are giving you, and what a wonderful gift you are giving them as well.

A BIG THANK YOU to all my Reiki kids and their families for supporting them in their Reiki adventure.  I’m so grateful for all of you!!

In Love and Light of our Divine Source,

Josslyn

Throat Chakra/Thyroid Healing

By Josslyn Streett of Rain Shadow Reiki

“I have hope, I feel elated and full of light.”

In general I believe in cleansing and healing daily ALL chakras to keep them clear and balanced.  But, quite often through our healing journey we find that we are working a bit harder on a particular chakra at that time in our lives.  Do not ignore the other major chakras, but it’s good to give a little extra attention to those chakras that you are feeling very strongly need your help.

Throat Chakra Indications

It usually happens quite naturally, as you will notice that all of a sudden BLUE is now your favorite color for clothes, jewelry, game playing pieces and such, when usually you’re a green person.  This is a good sign that you are clearing issues with your throat chakra.  You will also find that you all of a sudden are being challenged with communication issues, verbally, mentally, emotionally and even electronically.  The Universe will offer you great learning opportunities for working through your throat chakra issues, like relationships that need talking through, clearer communication at work or sore throats for a whole season or even for years of seasons.  Another is, when you all of  a sudden find out that you have a physical illness in a particular area of a chakra, such as the thyroid.  A thyroid disorder is a clear indication of throat chakra issues that have been going on for a long time without resolve.  Maybe you are healing lifetimes of issues.  Time to heal those for good.  If you have become aware of them, then THIS is the time for you to heal them.  You are now awake to these issues, you cannot ignore them anymore.

How to Heal Your Throat Chakra Issues

Tip: Run Reiki with and before any healing modality to surround yourself with the power, protection and support of the Reiki healing energy.  Healing comes in many varieties and Reiki can aid you in all of them.

Lapis heart to love and heal the throat chakra. Lovely.
  • Run Reiki on your throat chakra daily, or twice daily if you have the time.  (Giving this area special attention and INTENTION will help to focus the healing and thus make it stronger and faster.)
  • Journal, blog, write poetry or song.  (Writing is a form of creative communication and can be extremely healing for your throat chakra.)
  • Sit in meditation and visualize stunning clear blue light cleaning, healing and balancing your throat chakra.
  • Wear blue stones to help heal the area.  Choose one YOU are drawn to.  (Throat Chakra stones fairly easy to find: Lapis Lazuli, aquamarine, turquoise, sodalite, blue lace agate, blue kyanite, blue calcite, chrysocolla, amazonite, blue argonite, tanzanite, larimar, hemimorphite, blue halite, celestial aura quartz, blue tourmaline.)
  • Repeat an affirmation that makes sense to YOU and feels right to YOU. Here is the one I use “I have hope, I feel elated and full of light.”
  • Use special essential oils prepared for your throat chakra. (Such as: frankincense, rose, jasmine, rosewood, elemi, sandalwood, neroli and ylang ylang)
Listen to your body and your guides. Face your communication fears and before you know it you’ll have a very happy Blue Throat Chakra!
  • Pray and heal with Divine Source and your spirit guides.  (Ask Divine Source to send you the Highest Spiritual Order of throat chakra healing Masters to help you and give you guidance as to how to heal you.  Then listen. Listening is the hard part.)
  • Play with your nature spirits. (Place a plant next to your bed at night and ask Divine Source to send healing fairies to help heal your throat chakra.  When you ask, they will come. )
  • Listen to your body.  Most of all, listen to your body and when those learning situations come up in life, don’t back down, use them as an opportunity to expand and heal yourself.  Face your fears.  Soon enough you will move onto another color and another chakra, one at a time.  That’s how it’s done.

In Love and Light,

Josslyn Streett

Reiki Every Day – Part 2 Work

In the last post, Reiki Every Day Part 1, I focused on how to play with the Reiki energy in order to help make your home life more spiritual and inviting to yourself as well as to others.

But, if we are really going to make Reiki a part of our every day lives, it is equally important to know how to incorporate Reiki energy into our work lives as well.  One of the biggest questions I get from new Reiki students is “How can I use this to be more successful at work?”  Divine wants us to be successful in all ways, spiritually, financially, health wise and in our relationships.

This movie is available in my lending library.

If you have read or watched “The Secret” then you know a little about manifesting this in your life.  As much as I LOVED “The Secret” when it came out, I was always wondering afterward, “But, HOW do I actually DO that?”  With Reiki I figured out the HOW and have been able to DO it in my life, every day!  I pray these tips in this blog write-up will help many of you too.  But to really master it, I would first recommend taking a Reiki I class and then practice, practice and more practice.

As before, with each idea I’ll give the how with intention (Reiki I) and then I’ll give the corresponding symbol I would use.  Feel free to play around with using other Reiki symbols as well.   Have fun yourself and play with YOUR ideas.  Don’t try to do ALL the idea, pick the most important 1 or 2 ideas and work with those to get the best results and stick with it.  If you don’t do them, they won’t work.

LOVE learning with Reiki

Reiki Every Day at Work

  1. Learning new material.  Reiki is a great resource when you have to study any new material especially if you are having a difficult time taking in the material.  Maybe there is a block to the material itself or the author.  Either way, start by cleansing the learning materials with the intention of clearing away all blockages and lower energy that does not vibrate well with you (SHK). Then the intention of energizing them with (CKR).  Then put your hands to your head and intuitively run Reiki on the parts of your brain that you feel need it the most with the intention of helping you learn this new material.  Practicing and using your intuition, run Reiki on your heart chakra and any other chakras you feel need the help for this learning material.  Use the distance symbol if you want to get really fancy and tap into other lives where you already knew this info.
  2. Office Unity.  If you feel there is an issue at work with the other people in the office, too much gossip, backbiting, competitiveness, etc.  Start by cleansing and energizing the entire office.  You can do this from your office, workspace or from your home before or after work.  Imagine the workspace filling with Reiki with these intentions or symbols, (SHK) for cleansing and (CKR) for energizing and blessing the space.  Then you may send Reiki blessings to each co-worker (CKR) as often as you like.  You do not need permission to send them blessings.  Try this every day for a week and see if it helps the mood in the office.
  3. Office Equipment– Just like your computer and printer at home, you want to “Reiki” your office equipment at work as well to get the optimal results from it.  Use the intention first of cleansing it (SHK) and then energizing it (CKR).  The cleansing it is due to so many people having used it in the past but also for the electromagnetic field it puts out and pollutes the area with around you.  If you work on a computer every day, do this every day in the morning.
  4. Sales forms & potential clients.  If you work in sales, like my husband, Reiki your leads, sales paperwork, papers with client information in them and any paperwork with any kind of financial information on it.  First cleanse, then energize and bless and finally fun Reiki with the HIGHEST GOOD FOR ALL INVOLVED.  That way you will receive the orders you are supposed to receive and not the others.  Some clients you just don’t want.  They end up being more work than they are worth.  Let the Universe weed those out for you.
  5. Goals.  Work goals or home goals, either way we want to succeed at them.  Write them on a computer file, piece of paper or 3 x 5 card.  Keep them close where you can “Reiki” them or see them every day.  Cleanse (SHK) and energize (CKR) them with Reiki every day and hold them in your hand sending Reiki to them with the intention, again, of the HIGHEST GOOD FOR ALL INVOLVED.  If on paper, write the actual symbols on the paper as well.  If the goal is not for the highest good then it will not happen and you may need to rewrite it.  Some big goals you’ll need to give the Universe more time.  Be patient.  It took 3 years to deliver the perfect new career to my husband after we had moved her.  But we were patient and it came at the perfect time.
  6. Writing.  If you need to write for your job here is a process I personally use every time I write for work or even for important emails.  Do your Gassho if you are in private.  Otherwise, close your eyes and connect to Divine Source.  Ask Divine Source to send you the Highest Spiritual Order of Reiki guides to help you write.  Thank them for coming.  Then start writing.  They will help with any blocks you may have to the topic, person you are writing to or the act of writing itself.
  7. Helping yourself be more successful each day.  Before you go into work yourself or in the middle of the day when you may be feeling tired, run Reiki energy on your chakras.  If you have symbols then use the (CKR) or the intention to energize yourself and keep yourself going.  My husband does this in the mornings before he gets out of bed and says it works better than a cup of coffee.  (We do not drink coffee)  It will help keep you going, help your mind work more effectively and heal issues you have with your job.
  8. Put Reiki in your product.  If you have any type of job where you make a product; food, candles, essential oils, furniture, homes, books, art, jewelry, websites, etc.  ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING is better with Reiki.  Your product will ooze Reiki which is Pure Love from Divine.  It will sell better, taste better and be more fulfilling to you in the process.  WHAT COULD YOU MAKE BETTER WITH REIKI?
  9. Program your day.  If you have a busy day ahead this works great to make sure you stay on task, stay on time and do all things with Love and Light.  Sit quietly for a moment at home or in your car before you go into work.  Visualize your day in your mind while placing your hands on your body and head with the Reiki running. Imagine your day going smoothly.  Imagine everyone around you and yourself calm with smiles on your faces.  Visualize yourself being on time for all appointments.  Use (HSZSN) to help do this future manifestation work.  Use (SHK) to cleanse the day of any negative emotions or mental patters that are not helping you.  Work with (CKR) to help bless the day, the work space and everyone involved and to energize you as well.

Here are some examples of specific careers and how they could play with Reiki to make their days more successful.

Teacher– Cleanse and energize the classroom.  Bless each student silently and to yourself, with Reiki as they enter the class.

Builder– Place Reiki in the walls, ceilings and entire structure as you build.

Put love in your food with Reiki!

Caterer– Place Reiki in all food and drink as it’s made.  This can be done with your eyes or fingers or hands as you prepare the food.

Receptionist– Think Reiki blessings with each phone call answered, clear the energy in the office, bless all messages that come through you.

Real Estate Agent– Cleanse each and every property you are showing, home or business.  You will sell or rent more, believe me.  Plus, after the people move into the house, they will be happier or more successful for businesses and you will get even more business from referrals.

Are you getting the idea?  If you have specific questions for me about how to play with Reiki in your specific job, please comment or email me and I’ll be happy to help.  

If you can come up with great ways to improve YOUR OWN job and be more successful please let us know by commenting on this blog.  I would LOVE to hear your ideas.

In Love and Light, Joss

Reiki Every Day -Part 1 Home

Reiki is an amazing healing modality.  I literally feel like I have magic in my hands.
But, when I teach a class, I teach not only how to heal yourself and others with Reiki, but how to incorporate Reiki into every aspect of your life.  Reiki is not just for healing or for healers.  Reiki can be translated as “spiritually guided life force energy.”   It says nothing about being only for healing.  Reiki responds to the intention that the user puts forth for it in their mind.  Reiki can do no harm so no one can use Reiki with ill intentions. Because Reiki is Divinely guided, the energy simply would never respond to such an intention.  So, this allows  for Reiki users to be creative and think of new and original ways to use Reiki in their every day life to make their life more fulfilled, more spiritual and more fun!  FUN, FUN, FUN!  Divine wants us to have more FUN!

There are so many ways to work with the Reiki energy within your daily life.  Please read the ideas I give and send me comments of your own ways of working with Reiki energy.  Since there are so many ways, I’ll be making this post a three parter to get them all in.  I’ll list them for the ideas and give the intention or the “how” for those of you who already have Reiki in your hands and want to try them.  If you have Reiki II and above, you may add the Reiki symbols to the intention depending upon the desired outcome.  You will recognize the CKR as the power symbol, SHK as the mental/emotional symbol and HSZSN as the long distance symbol.

AT HOME WITH REIKI-

Work with the Reiki energy in your home to raise the vibration and make it more peaceful, protected and inviting.

Use Reiki on EVERYTHING:

  1. The walls, ceilings, floors, air, windows and doors, inside cabinets and closets.  First use the SHK or the intention to clean or cleanse your homes energy, rooms etc.  Then use the symbol CKR to seal and protect the space.  I also visualize a huge dome of Love and Light surrounding my home and neighborhood every night before bed to make us invisible vibrationally to lower energies, people who have lower intentions on their mind.
  2. New items coming into the home.  I Reiki everything that comes into my home with a quick cleansing intention (SHK) before incorporating it into the rooms.  Then I do a (CKR) or an intention for blessings and to energize the item.
  3. House hold appliances, plumbing, air conditioner, heater, etc.  Our house is a part of us.  It reacts to our emotions too, like our body.  Sometimes when you are very emotional or going through hard times, your home will react.  Such as, your plumbing may go haywire and water is everywhere.  Water is a symbol of big emotions out of control.  Using Reiki on these areas of your home will heal you and your house together.
  4. Electronics- T.V.’s, computers, printers, stereos, I-pods, cell phones, car engines, etc.  (helps them work better, longer and with less electro magnetic pollution to you.
  5. Batteries – Do you know you can Reiki batteries to get longer life?  I have done this on multiple occasions.  Once my camera batteries ran out right when my son was about to receive his end of the season soccer trophy.  I ran Reiki with the power symbol on the battery for 5 minutes and was able to take photos of the whole team receiving their trophies!  Try it, it’s a great way to amaze non believers and kids love it.
  6. Food, drink, vitamins, prescription medication– Brings out all the good, gets rid of the bad- makes them healthier, less toxic and less side effects.  Cleanse with the intention of clearing away anything that is unhealthy (symbol SHK) and then use the intention of energizing the nutrition with the best possible nutrient value possible with (CKR).
  7. Find missing things– I always use this one when I lose something around the house.  I do my Gassho to conect to the Reiki.  I use the intention of finding the lost object (HSZSN) and then leave it up to Divine.  If you are meant to have that object again, you will.
  8. People– I work with the Reiki on my kids when they are fighting to calm the energy down around them and take away the charge.  They often stop fighting and are soon laughing.  It’s pretty amazing.  Use Reiki on a photo of you and your partner to improve your relationship. (with their permission of course!)   You may use Reiki and the CKR on anyone as a blessing with no intention.  This you can do anytime you want to heal a situation that has worsened or exploded.  Or you can send Reiki to the relationship itself, not the actual person, a little each day and watch things smooth out.  People who you never thought would apologize, will.
  9. Pets and plants– All living things LOVE Reiki.  Reiki your house plants, your pets, if you don’t like spiders then Reiki your home with the intention that spiders will like other places better and go there instead.
  10. Identity theft– This is a big one lately in our new electronic environment.  Work with Reiki with the intention of first cleansing (SHK) and then protecting (CKR) your bank statements or the screen on your computer as a symbol of your accounts, Reiki your investments, college funds, stocks and bonds, all insurance, drivers license, passport or birth certificate as a symbol of your overall identity and anything else you have that represents YOU and your families electronic selves.  Do this regularly, whenever you feel the need.  At least once a month would be recommended.
  11. Websites, blogs, Facebook pages,emails, etc.-  These too need to be cleansed and protected from fraud happening.  I also hold the intention that all who read the words I write or put out to the Universe are blessed by the process.  I Reiki each and every page, word, down to the letter of my website and emails that I send with the intention that they are filled and surrounded with Reiki with the greatest good for all who read them.  (use all three Reiki II symbols)
  12. Spiritual Items & tools– Spiritual items; pictures, statues, art, crystals, shells, candles, pendulums, oracle cards, healing wands, etc. All spiritual items of the Light carry a higher vibration and lift the energy of your home.  Keep them of the highest vibration possible by blessing them (CKR), cleansing them (SHK), surrounding them with protection and energizing them with (CKR) as often as you think about it.  I also like to use incense and other forms to clean them as well.  But, that’s a whole other blog.
  13. Boogie men and bad dreams-  Many children have bad dreams, night terrors or see monsters in their closet.  Ban the boogie man by allowing your child to help you banish them with beautiful all loving Reiki energy.  Let them know that as long as the Reiki energy is filling their closet and their bed room, no monsters can come even close to them or their room.  For bad dreams you can also help the child fall asleep while you run Reiki and place your hands on the part of the child that feels physically affected by the fear, head, heart, abdomen, etc.  Ask them where it’s bothering them.  Do your Gassho, ask for Guides of the HIGHEST SPIRITUAL ORDER DIRECTLY FROM GOD, and use the intent to clear and protect the room, closet, or dream.  Allowing your child to help empowers them to know they can do this too and have the spiritual power they need to vanquish their fears.
  14. Cooking– And last but not least, use Reiki in your cooking and preparing of food.  Reiki is Divine Love, what better way to make your food more nutritious, more delectable, and filled with love than with Reiki.  Fill your kitchen, ingredients and hands with Reiki before beginning.  Use all the symbols with all intentions during the cooking process and just allow the Reiki to flow freely while you cook.  You can even use the distance symbol to send blessings to the dining room later when you’ll be eating for the best possible atmosphere while dining.

The possibilities of how you can improve your personal life at home are endless when you work with Reiki.  Can you think of any I forgot?

Next time I’ll touch on Reiki for work and manifesting.  Get on my email list on the right side of the website if you’d like to receive updated information about my new posts.

Love and Light to you all
