Reiki is a Choice! Congratulations to my Reiki Mens Class!!

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

First of all, I’d like to say a BIG HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to our All Mens Reiki class!!  These men put aside all fears and reservations about what Reiki MIGHT be and went for it.  And, boy, did they go for it!

My Reiki men, truly a courageous group of men.  Reiki on!!
My Reiki men, truly a courageous group of men. Reiki on!!

A couple of months ago, two of my Reiki students informed me that their husbands, and one father would like to take a Reiki class.  “Ok”, I said, “lets manifest that.”  I knew if it was meant to be, it would happen, and it did. I opened the class up to all men who would like to take the class and asked my students (who are mostly women) to talk to their partners about the class.  Four brave men showed up, plus my husband to add moral support.

These men knew very little about Reiki, other than it had helped the women in their lives.  The first thing we did in class was make sure that no single man in the room had been hog tied and brought against his own free will.  Nope, everyone came on their own.  Every man who heard about the class had the choice to come or not.  These men showed up.  Not only did they show up, they gave it everything they had.  This group of men, who were unsure of themselves in a spiritual setting and unsure of Reiki, asked more questions than most of my other classes AND they even asked questions about Reiki that I didn’t know.  They are the first class to GIVE ME HOMEWORK!!  Cuddos to them.

Never Give Up, Never Surrender

All done, feeling pretty good!!
All done, feeling pretty good!! Congratulations Dan, Robert, Noel, Joe and Jacob!!  Truly open-hearted courageous men in my book!

After learning about Reiki a bit, being attuned and practicing Reiki on themselves with success all on their first day, the men started really opening up not just their curiosity but their hearts as well. By day two, they were totally into it, taking it in and even enjoying it–although, still somewhat perplexed and confused at times.

They did not give up.  They continued on fully present, fully committed and fully prepared to truly work at making this Reiki healing part of their lives.  I was so proud of them, so amazed at their commitment and desire to learn and open up and so honored to be learning as much from them as they were learning from me.  Even when parts of the class, like meeting their spirit guides, got emotional and touched their hearts in ways they didn’t expect, these men grasped the experience and allowed it, they didn’t fight it, they just accepted.  It was truly beautiful to be a part of.

Normal, Everyday Guys

These men had very little exposure to spiritual classes or events before this class.  This truly was their first experience into energy and what is possible with it.  They opened up their heart and their minds, and their crown chakras (literally) and totally went for it.  That takes a great deal of courage.

We all have choices in our lives, sometimes we don’t feel we do, but we do.  Many men had the choice to come to this class and didn’t.  The men who showed up could have come, but closed off to something totally strange and new to them, but they didn’t.  They chose to come and they chose to jump in with both feet first into the deep end and totally go for it.  Because of that, they each had their own true spiritual experience that made the class unique to them and will most likely stand out in their minds as a very important day in their spiritual growth.  Having the spiritual experience is what most of us are seeking without knowing it, if you chose to open up to it as these men did, you will get it.  Maybe not at first, maybe not what you expect, but you will get it.

Now what they do with Reiki from here on out is truly their choice.

I’m available for help after class to answer questions, hold Reiki Circles and Round Tables, but it is up to each student to DO for themselves, to ‘show up’ for themselves each and every day and actually practice their Reiki on themselves. Reiki is like anything else in this world, we have to actually DO IT in order to feel any difference in our lives.  That is a little trick Divine plays on us, we must do a certain amount for ourselves, then we’ll be met part way by miracles.  Are you ready for your Reiki miracles?

Have you done your Reiki today?

The DOING comes first, the mini miracles come later…

Much Love and Light to all of you, I’m so incredibly grateful for my Reiki community.  I am truly powered daily by Reiki and your Love!!  Thank you for your loving comments, I’m so grateful for them as well.

Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Congratulations Reiki I New Years Class of 2015!!

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

CONGRATULATIONS to my first Reiki I class of 2015!!  Every Reiki class is special for me, but they are all unique in their own ways too.  This class seemed to not have a similarity connecting them in the beginning.  But, I know, that by the end of class, similarities and connections appear, and they did, in quite magical ways.  By the end of day two this group of ladies had faced their fears together, blew their ‘boxes’ wide open and gave my dog Mandy constant cuddles throughout the two days of class.  Mandy is one happy Reiki dog.

Reiki I Edit 1-15
Congratulations Michelle, Michel, Stevie, Merala and Rena. You made my month for sure!! I know 2015 is going to be a great year!

Animal loving connected us and much more.  The first class was on Monday.  The ladies went home, practiced self Reiki Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and by Thursday had me in tears with the stories of the mini-miracles that they were already creating in their lives with just three days of Reiki.  Truly remarkable.  I cannot divulge details, but these ladies gave me many good reasons why I’m so incredibly grateful, every single day, that I get to teach Reiki.  Thank you ladies for choosing me to be your teacher!!  I’m so honored.

If you have not taken a Reiki class yet, make 2015 your year!!

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Congratulations to Our Newest Reiki I Students! The Ones Who Made it Through!

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

FIRST, A Big Huge Congratulations to our newest Rain Shadow Reiki, Reiki I students!!

Congratulations Mary Ellen, Camille, and Jayne, much Reiki Love to you all!
Congratulations Mary Ellen, Camille, and Jayne, much Reiki Love to you all!

What a wonderful and fun group of women.  I know, I always say that, because it’s true.  I’m blessed to have deep, inquisitive, curious, strong, respectful, spiritual and simply amazing students to take my classes.

Of course, as teacher, I take some credit, because I put the intention into my manifestation of amazing students every day, that I only get the best of the best students who vibrate well with me and are meant to take my classes.  But, it’s a collision course for success, because they’ve been doing the same in manifesting the right Reiki teacher for them, so it’s literally impossible for them to NOT find me and for me to NOT find them.  I love the way the Universe works.

Healing Crisis BEFORE a Reiki Class

When I took my Karuna Reiki class from William Lee Rand, he sent the books out beforehand so we could study the many symbols prior to the class.  My ‘healing crisis’ or as I call it, HEALING OPPORTUNITY started right away and lasted in my opinion for a few years.  It was powerful or pre-menopause, not 100% sure on that one.  But, the healing opportunity started as soon as I received my manual a month before the class when in the summertime, I got a head cold.  I don’t get head colds in the summer.

“When written in Chinese the word crisis is composed of two characters.  One represents danger, the other opportunity.”        John F. Kennedy

HealingCrisisChangeThis can happen with any of the healing classes we take.  As soon as we make the firm decision to change or evolve the healing opportunity can start.  This is not the ‘fault’ of Reiki, this is a conscious decision your soul and human self has made to change, but change also comes with evolution, raising our vibration, learning.  This can look like an emotional upset, cold or flu symptoms, strange dreams, trouble sleeping or being challenged by some of your old belief patters in hurtful and difficult ways.  This is the cleansing process that the student chooses when they choose CHANGE.  When they choose to evolve and get rid of the OLD and bring in the NEW vibration, our body, mind and spirit start to dump out the old stuff that no longer serves us.  Some people start this process after the class, but yes, some of us lucky ones start right away.

From Six Down to Three

Thus, I had three people sign up for the class this week who were not able to complete it. Two of them were so sick they weren’t able to even attend the class, one came and went home early.  Could they simply have colds?  Yes, of course.  Could they be detoxifying old stuff they no longer need and thus triggering a Healing Opportunity?  Yes, of course.  It doesn’t matter the why,  the answer is the same, REIKI!!!  Drinking lots of water, extra rest and taking an epsom salts bath helps a great deal too.  So, my recommendation is, stick with your first intuition to evolve and take the Reiki class at your next possible opportunity.  If you already have Reiki, REIKI YOURSELF A WHOLE LOT, EVERY DAY!  That is my prescription for a healing crisis/opportunity.

“Healing is not an overnight process, it is a daily cleansing of pain, it is a daily healing of your life.”   Leon Brown, found not guilty from new DNA evidence, after 30 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.  

I’m greatly proud of ALL my Reiki students for being on their spiritual path and continuing to move forward despite difficult conditions.  You are so much stronger than you know.

LOVE THIS PIC THE BEST! Such excitement.
LOVE THIS PIC THE BEST! Such excitement.

And, again, congratulations to my wonderful new Reiki students from this weekend, the ones who did make it through.  I cannot wait to see where your Reiki path goes.  So exciting.

 

 

Reiki Blessings to you ALL,
