Congratulations to my New Reiki Students!! Anyone Can Learn Reiki!

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

A BIG HUGE CONGRATULATION TO MY THREE NEW REIKI I STUDENTS

LAST CLASS OF THE YEAR 2015!!

and a short blog about how ANYONE can learn and do Reiki!!

This class loved to laugh and I got to laugh right along with them.  We had so much fun, and they didn’t take anything too seriously, EXCEPT, the final practice session.  They did a fabulous job and we went way over time (Ok, a bit over time)  because we were all so into it.  LOVED IT!!

Congratulations Celeste, Glenda and Renee!!

TMI

Quite often at the end of the two-day class, we’ve learned so much new information that some students feel overwhelmed.  But, I’ve seen this before and every time, the practice session brings everything together.  The practice session just helps it all make sense.  When the Reiki is flowing the healing has begun, whether the student feels they can do it or not, they do, because with the Reiki flowing, the healing takes place no matter what.  It’s incredibly confirming to both student, teacher and the person on the table receiving the Reiki.

Just The Channel

No matter how many times a student feels they need to look at the book to see the hand positions, no matter how much they forget in the moment what they have learned in the past two days, and no matter how much they doubt themselves, the healing still takes place.  The Reiki goes to work in-spite of us to help us through that student learning phase, to help us build confidence in ourselves and in the Reiki and to help us get past the nagging beliefs in our head that we can’t do this.  The Reiki heals us at the same time as the client.  It is a truly beautiful thing.

See, we can be serious too.
See, we can be serious too.

During the practice session, the client feels heat, tingles or energy shooting up and/or down their body.  The student might feel the same thing or something totally different, but they all feel some kind of confirmation that the Reiki IS RUNNING THROUGH THEM AND THEY ARE FACILITATING HEALING.  It’s a spiritually powerful feeling.  It can be humbling being JUST THE CHANNEL but it can also be FREEING.  All we have to do is BE the CHANNEL.  The Reiki simply flows through us, and all we have to do is allow it to.  The Reiki does so much of the hard work for us that truly, anyone can learn this healing technique. That is the beauty of it.  That is the simplicity of it.  And that is what makes it so popular because truly, ANYONE CAN DO THIS!!  That is spiritually empowering to the whole world!!

So, if you have not take a Reiki class before, please know, YOU TOO CAN DO THIS TOO and it’s so worth it.

Huge Blessings to my Reiki students, I’m so excited to watch your paths unfold, 

Go with your Reiki in Love, Light and Lollipops!! (Borrowed that from a dear new Reiki friend to remind us to add joy to our path!)

Dr. Hayashi’s Theory Behind How Reiki Heals

Excerpt from “The Story of Dr. Chujiro Hayashi” by Marianne Streich in The Reiki News Magazine Fall 2009

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, one of our Reiki founders.
Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, one of our Reiki founders.  Pronounced Chew-Gee-Row Hi-ah-shee

Dr. Hayashi addresses many of the most common questions I get in this one simple analogy.  How Does Reiki Heal? Why does Reiki not always heal fast or present miracles?  Why do healing crisis’ happen with Reiki?

“Hayashi told his students, ‘Reiki cures problems from the bottom up.’   Hayashi talked about diseases of the day and discussed the body’s natural healing process and how Reiki activates it.  He used the metaphor of a muddy stream, telling students that Reiki stirs up stagnant energy, just as sediment will surface when a stream is disturbed.  As surface sediment is removed, the stream will appear to be clearer, although some sediment will sink to the bottom again.  Continuing the process of bringing sediment to the surface and removing it will ultimately result in a clear stream.  Just as a disturbed stream will appear muddy, disturbing stagnant energy can result in a healing reaction or in symptoms temporarily getting worse, but as the stagnant energy continues to be removed, the body becomes clear, just as the stream becomes clear if the muddy sediment is removed.  He described healing as the process of making the finest paper, in which each sheet is peeled off until the healthy being is revealed.”

Reiki at the End of Life – Honoring My Dad

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

It is my goal with this blog, to give you ideas of ways to work with your Reiki, that maybe you haven’t thought of.  I pray this blog helps anyone who will go through the grieving process.  Blessings to you all…

Where to begin…

My father was diagnosed with Leukemia this past June.  It is now late September.  The doctors said one to five years and we thought THAT was too fast.  Three months later, with our heads still spinning, my dad passed a few days ago.

At this exact moment, I write as a way of getting all the words out of my head so I can stay calm, to honor him and to honor Reiki and all it does for me and my family.

Sitting here at this moment, all the work I have done with Reiki, being able to work with Reiki on my father in his last day of life has been the most important and fulfilling Reiki moment of my life.

The Call

Reiki was with us from the moment I spoke with my mom and she being a woman who would never ever ‘cry wolf’ said “If you want to say good-bye to your father, you’d better all come.

My husband checked the flights and shouted through the house to the family, “You have twenty minutes to pack.  We were off, kids, adults, dog, we were packed and leaving the house in a half an hour to catch a flight that we might not be able to make.  I prayed and made phone calls during the two-hour fifteen minutes to the airport. I brought my Reiki with me to help us be calm and not drive too fast but to get us there in time, to help me be strong in the moments I need to be and to help me be able to process and let go at the moments I need to do that.

Our Reiki Guides were with us on the drive to the Airport making sure we didn’t get pulled over, caught in traffic or anything worse.  I asked my Reiki guides to clear traffic on the freeway so we could get there safely.  Our guides provided us with a very nice semi truck driver who went a very good consistently fast speed but not too fast, so we were able to get there in time with a divine escort in front of us.  Reiki Blessings to the truck drivers out there.

When we got on the plane for our two and a half hour flight I prayed most of the way, instructing Reiki how I wanted things to go, manifesting what I felt I needed and wanted most for the situation: to be able to see my dad and him see us, to be able to say “I love you, no matter what happened with us in the past, I love you,” and for him to know we were there for my mom and would take care of her, she would not go through this alone.  These were the things that mattered to me. They were HUGE undertakings at this moment.  We didn’t know if we’d get there in time.  Just that morning my dad was with my mom at the dog park, talking with people, socializing with the other dog parents, planning a trip to Sacramento to see an alternative healer who might have a cure… and tonight, he was……… knocking at Heaven’s door.

Divine has granted us with so many healing gifts these last few months.  A huge one is that we made it.  And, I truly felt we were able to make a difference at his hospital bedside.  My dad was coherent when we arrived.  He saw all of us.  He knew we were there for him.  I told him I love him.  I looked in his eyes and let him know I love him.  He saw my husband and his grandsons there for him, his legacy.  We had closure  in that arena and I am eternally grateful for that.  I felt lifetimes of healing happening right there, in that moment.

But then the even bigger gift happened.

Reiki Steps Up to the Plate (my dad was a huge baseball fan, had to throw that in there)

When we arrived, my dad seemed very agitated.  He had a very large tube in his nose for oxygen and he had difficulty breathing and talking with it.  We could make out a few words here and there but it seemed so difficult for him to talk and get the words out we didn’t want him to strain.  We didn’t feel we needed words at that moment, but he did.  He seemed to want to say so much to us that he wasn’t able to say.  I understood but at the same time didn’t want him to be in such pain and frustration.

My boys doing Reiki on my dad in the hospital from across the room. Four hours of Reiki can be a lot.  Make sure you are grounded, connected to Divine and of the mindset that the Reiki is channeling through you, not using your personal energy.  This way, you will not tire the body.  In this picture they are holding up their hands towards my dad, you can also just place your hands face up on your lap and intend that the energy is getting to the person who has requested it.  This will be less tiring for your physical body for long sessions like this.

His frustration at the tube, lack of ability to communicate and the end of his life too soon, it all was compounding his agitation and he was getting more and more upset.  I instinctively put my hand on his heart and one on his crown and prayed for my Reiki to ease his discomfort.  My family, my husband and my two boys, took my cue and all started running Reiki on my dad from where they were around the bed (my husband is a Reiki III and my teen boys are both Reiki I trained).  My father instantly, I mean instantly, calmed.  He closed his eyes and stopped trying so hard to communicate.  We took turns doing Reiki on him two at a time for the next four hours, keeping him calm, talking to him in the energy of love and spirit through the Reiki.

Communicating Through the Reiki

By communicating that my thoughts, words and intentions were getting to my dad at a higher level of consciousness by riding on the waves of the Reiki that was flowing to him, I let him know in so many ways that I love him, no matter what has challenged us in the past (a great deal, but it doesn’t matter any more).  I let him know I’d be able to communicate with him after he passed.  (My deceased father in law is at our house all the time, what’s one more paternal energy hanging around, right!)  I prayed for my Reiki Guides and his highest and most Loving Guides of God’s to be with my dad as well as any loved ones he would recognize from the other side and for him to go with them at the right time, including his many black labs that he has loved so much.  I assured him he’d see us all again soon.  I assured him that mom would be in Heaven with him too some day soon.  (Heaven time is not the same as here, we will all be there in a blink of an eye).  Since my father did not have a very strong spiritual connection, I felt that reassuring him we’d all be together again in love, was a very important part of him being ok with passing on.  Reiki delivered the messages to him.

Of This I know in my Heart, spiritually…

  • The Reiki helped him to know that there is a Heaven and he will be there.
  • The Reiki let him know that we will all be together very soon.
  • The Reiki let him know we all loved him dearly and he made a difference in this life in many ways.
  • The Reiki let him know there is so much more mystery to life then he knew consciously in this life and that he has more adventures to come.
  • The Reiki let him know it was okay for us if he passed so he wouldn’t be in pain any longer.
  • The Reiki spoke for us, because the Reiki is of God and us and him too.

Reiki Also…

  • Calmed my dad physically and emotionally
  • Calmed me, my mom and my whole family
  • Gave peace to all of us that we were able to do something to help in a situation that seemed uncontrollable
  • Brought my whole extended family closer together in a feeling of unity that we had not had for many years

Reiki Planted Seeds

  • My dad’s amazing doctor was aware of energy work and we had good talks about how it helps
  • The nurses saw us doing Reiki and witnessed how it helped calm my dad
  • My sister who knows very little about Reiki has now seen it work
  • And, spirit is motivating me to write about this so soon after, to share my experience with those of you who need to read about it

Reiki Continues to support us by

  • I do Reiki on myself multiple times a day to stay grounded, strong, and centered
  • Reiki on myself to heal and release the bigger, deeper issues at the perfect time
  • Reiki on myself to help me have the best calming, healing words for whoever needs them at the time, including myself
  • I’m doing Reiki on my niece who has never even heard of Reiki, because she has a sinus infection
  • I’m doing Reiki on any other family members who want it and need it, we all need it, but I’m respectful of each person’s process which may not want Reiki at that moment
  • Reiki on my dad’s dog, Sparty, who misses him terribly and is clinging to my mom
  • On Saturday, I will do Reiki at the location of the Celebration of Life to set space for a positive remembrance of my dad’s life

The ways in which Reiki can support me and my family at this moment is a very long one.

We have a long way to go in the grieving process, it’s been four days.  This week we are supporting my mom and preparing a celebration of life.  Next week, who knows.  One day at a time, but THANK GOD, seriously, that I have Reiki and I know I can turn to this amazing gift from Divine to support me and my family along the way.

I’m so grateful right now, so full of love and light and so confident that with God as my partner through my use of Reiki, I’ll make it through this process with deep healing and more joy in my heart.

Please feel free to share stories of your parents, grieving, Reiki or anything else that is healing to you or others who will be reading.

Reiki Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

Q & A – Doing Reiki While Stressed?

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

QUESTION:
Thank you Josslyn for sending daily Reiki to my sick dogs.  I am attuned to Reiki but I haven’t been using it to send healing to my dogs because I’m so stressed about them being sick. Will the energy be enough if am under stress. I know that I need to heal myself first before I send healing to others, but I am not confident if I am worried like this, that they are getting what they need.

Kindest regards,
J.S. from the Philippines

ANSWER:

Dear J.S.
Our Divine Creator understands we humans are stressed much of the time, this is one of the reasons we have been gifted with Reiki at this time to help us deal with the high stress levels we are under while in human form and help us learn how to lower it naturally and spiritually with the help of Reiki.
If we all waited until we were not stressed or completely healed before doing Reiki on others, we would literally never be able to do Reiki.  None of us are perfect and yet doing Reiki will help us get closer to spiritual enlightenment.  One Reiki healing at a time.
The Reiki is Divine energy, we are just the channel.  The Reiki is intelligent in its own right and knows exactly what is needed in each situation.  Therefore, all we need to do is ask and be the channel, then allow the Reiki to do the healing.  All healing comes from our Divine Source, not us.  Therefore, Doing Reiki while stressed is better than not doing it at all.  Right!?!
By doing Reiki on your sick dogs, the Reiki will heal your dogs in the way they need most, and the Reiki will flow through you, helping you to feel less stressed, thus healing you too.  Reiki is a win/win situation.  Everyone in the process receives exactly what they need.  If you were stressed when you started, I bet you feel much calmer by the time you are done.  Maybe you even have a ‘higher’ understanding of why your dogs and you are having to go through this period of dis-ease. But, just by knowing you are helping your dogs, you too will feel better.
Go ahead and do it, it will be exactly what your pets need and will most likely de-stress you in the process too.
Blessings,
Josslyn
P.S. If this was a Reiki Practitioner working on a client for money, the answer may be quiet different.  This person was working on her own pets, not a paying client.

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.

Brand Spankin’ New

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

Reiki Stories – Reiki Heals Torn Calf Muscle/Behcet’s Diesease

Reprinted from the Reiki News Magazine Winter 2014 issue

If you have taken a Reiki class or thinking about it and are not yet familiar with the Reiki News Magazine, I am here to say, this is a wonderful resource not to be missed out on.  I have stacks and stacks of these magazines that I keep through the years and reread. Plus I have them available for check out in the Rain Shadow Reiki lending library.

The articles give me inspiration, ideas and motivation by hearing other Reiki stories from other Reiki Practitioners.  The magazine comes quarterly so you don’t get overwhelmed, but you are excited by the time the new one comes.  I highly recommend getting a subscription at any level of Reiki you are at.

Here is a story of physical healing that happened quite over night from the Winter 2014 issue.  Short and sweet, but powerful.  I pray it gives you some ideas about what is possible with Reiki.

Blessings, Josslyn

Most of the stories in this section of Reiki News Magazine have been 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 medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that you use Reiki in conjunction with the help of a licensed health care provider.

Reiki Heals Torn Calf Muscle

My husband tore his calf muscle playing soccer.  The bleeding under the skin was visible immediately, and he couldn’t bear weight on his leg.  The chiropractor told him that he would be on the sidelines for six weeks.  He was devastated.  That night I gave Reiki to his calf muscle by simply cupping the injured calf muscle in my hands.  I held it for about 20 minutes in that one spot.  After 10 – 15 minutes my husband and I started to feel a massaging sensation under the skin.  My husband asked, “What is that?”  I replied that I didn’t know and suggested that we just go with it.  The massaging sensation was like a series of waves flowing back and forth.  I held the position until the movement stopped.  the next day my husband was walking, in no pain and with no limp.  the chiropractor declared him fit to play the following Saturday and was scratching his head as to how my husband could have healed so quickly!  –Alex Midwife

Story #2 lets us know what healing is possible with a Reiki Attunement

Behcet’s Disease Healed with Reiki

I had an incurable and devastating illness called Behcet’s Disease.  My symptoms were painful and life shattering including losing my eyesight.  Always intuitive, I knew there was a reason for my experiencing this ‘whole’ body illness.  I intuitively knew that I would be able to heal myself.  I became an ordained minister through the study of the Teleios Technique with Dr. Jim Cox.  Then I began certification in Reiki.  The night of the Reiki I attunement I had a dream about a white light that surrounded my body and entered through the top of my head (crown chakra).  This white light renewed and restored every cell in my body.  That was November 15, 1996.  I have not had a symptom of Behcet’s since that day.  In fact, I am now 60 but I look younger than I did in 1996.  By the way, Behcet’s Disease is described as “No Hope- No Cure.”  —Billie Watkins, M. Div., Minister

Reiki Quick Tip – Reiki Your Email

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

Joss’ Dramatic Email Story to Draw You In

Years ago, before I knew Reiki, my husband and I were in the process of buying a franchise business.  It was an enrichment activity place for children and would help children to learn how to feel, understand and relate their emotions more powerfully and spiritually.  It was amazing.  However, after months of planning, preparation and training, we had severe ethical differences with the owner and ended up severing ties with her and the whole business idea.  It was the death of a dream for us.

Emails can carry the good or 'bad' energy of the person who is sending them.
Emails can carry the good or ‘bad’ energy of the person who is sending them.

Unfortunately, it was the death of much more than that too.   Our beloved dog Marley died at exactly the same time in an accident.  It was an accident, however, I still felt at fault and felt a great deal of guilt over the situation.   I was grieving our family member and our business dream at the same time.  We didn’t know where to take our dreams from there, it was just too painful to move on.  It was a very hard time especially since I didn’t have nearly as many coping skills as I have now with Reiki.

THE POWERFUL EMAIL

NO, don't open that!!
NO, DON’T OPEN THAT!!

At the same time of us feeling defeated, depressed and in limbo, the franchise owner’s friend sent me a scathing email about the situation.  She, of course believed her friend to be ethical and didn’t believe us.  The email was extremely unkind but even worse, she powerfully put ALL of her emotions into the email as she wrote it and transferred them to me when I opened it.  As soon as I clicked to open the email, I felt fully every hurtful emotion she was feeling towards us come through the email before I even read it.   It got into my auric field and brought me down like a ton of bricks.  I was still grieving and working through my own fears and issues with leaving the business behind and feeling responsible for our family member’s death, so her email and the emotional energy that came though with it, easily got into my unprotected auric field and exacerbated any difficult emotions I was already feeling ten fold.  I got physically sick on top of the depression and had trouble functioning for weeks afterward.  I didn’t fully realize at that time that an email could carry energy like that and affect me to such a degree.  I finally realized what was happening and started meditating and doing some healing work that I knew at the time to help me remove this energy from my body, mind and spirit.  Over time I got better and was able to put it behind me.  This is obviously an extreme situation, but it is the extreme that sticks with us and teaches us some of our biggest lessons.  And I learned an important one, REIKI YOUR EMAILS, COMING IN AND GOING OUT!!

HOW REIKI HELPS US THROUGH OUR EMAILS

When we Reiki the emails we can neutralize any less than loving feelings we may be having at the time we write the email, so the other person doesn’t receive them energetically.  We can also neutralize any of those same feelings that may be coming IN on an email from someone else BEFORE it gets to us.  We all have stressed or negative feelings from time to time,  but we don’t need to be sending them out to the world or to our friends via emails and pm’s.

BONUS: When we Reiki emails going out, the Reiki will help to heal any less than loving feelings we are having at the time too.  It’s a win/win.

We do not need anyone’s permission to do this because we are not sending Reiki TO the person, we are sending it to the email, surrounding and protecting the energy of the email.   We are sending Reiki to the email so it is full of positive love energy.  If the person on the receiving end chooses to take some Reiki that comes with the email, that is between them and their Higher Power.

HOW TO SEND REIKI LOVE WITH YOUR EMAILS

SEND ONLY LOVE
SEND ONLY LOVE

As always, this is my way.  Feel free to use this one or trust your higher self, your Reiki Guides and you own personal knowledge to come up with a way that feels right for you.

Reiki incoming as well as outgoing emails with this process:(also snail mail, Facebook, etc.)

  1.  Gassho- Hold your hands in the prayer position at your heart and ask Divine to send down the Reiki.  Hold your hands in prayer position at your third eye and ask Divine to send down your Reiki Guides of the Highest and most Sacred Order of Love and Light. (If you are in a hurry you don’t always need to do the Gassho, as long as you do it much of the time. Or you can do this in your mind, silently without the movements if you are at work.)
  2. While I have the email or message that I’m sending pulled up on the computer screen, I simply hold up my left hand flowing with Reiki towards the screen with intentions that it’s getting to the email, every letter, word, paragraph and space. I imagine the email and the Reiki flowing to it. (If around other people, simply do this with your eyes.)
  3. Let the Reiki flow with intention.  You can visualize the Reiki flowing into the email, dancing around the letters.  Flowing through the message or just melding with its essence.  Intention: Clean and clear, safe and sacred.
  4. If you have Reiki symbols – I like to use the CKR sandwich;            1.  Start with a blessing symbol like the Power Symbol (CKR) or a master blessing symbol (UDKM or TDKM) for the intention of sending blessings to the email and anyone who reads it.  (We can send a blessings symbol without permission.)                                            2. Then I send in the Mental/Emotional Symbol (SHK) and chant in my head the mantra with my intention, ‘clean and clear,’ three times each.  This will clean the email of any stress or emotion that you are feeling when you write it.You can chant the Reiki symbols in your head with the intention that they are flowing out your hands and into each individual email you are sending out.                                                    3. End the sandwich with the Power Symbol (CKR) for energizing the email to the perfect balance for you and the person receiving it.
  5. Reiki your email until you feel it is enough.

You can use this process for letters, pm’s or other forms of communication.

Thank the Reiki and your guides!  Send the email with Love & Light!

I hope these blogs are helping you to open up your idea box about what to use your Reiki for in your daily life.  Every time you work with Reiki, your life becomes more spiritual and in a lot of ways, easier.  Go with the flow baby!!

Q & A – Reiki Starting BEFORE the Session Starts

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

QUESTION FROM ONE OF MY NEW REIKI PRACTITIONERS

Hi Joss,

I was wondering if you start to feel things (Reiki) working  when someone asks for sessions with you.  I am finding that as soon as someone asks me about having a Reiki session, things start working. I feel their energy allowing the Reiki from me to start some of the work.

Love and Blessings,

Sharon from Battleground, WA

ANSWER

Josslyn’s email back to Sharon

Hi Sharon, yes, this can happen.  Once a person decides to have a Reiki session and chooses a practitioner, the Reiki can start flowing right away.  This depends upon the client’s higher self (soul self) and what they need and want.  If they need the Reiki right away to start preparing them for the session, or because they really need immediate healing, then they can start drawing it right away.  It is up to you, of course, to allow this or not.  We all have free will.  Make sure it is within your boundaries to allow this or not.   Is it comfortable for you?  Are you accepting of this happening?  If you are not ready for this step yet, simply tell your Reiki Guides your intentions and ask them to help you find a solution that works for both you and your client.
Building Up the Ability to Run Reiki A lot
For some new to Reiki,their physical bodies may not be used to the amount of energy flowing through it yet.   Running Reiki all the time or when not expected to be doing it (check your boundaries), could sometimes tire them out.  Our bodies will gain the ability to run more energy and more often as we practice more often in our Reiki sessions, both on ourselves and on others.  This will get better in time as we practice more and our bodies gets more used to it.  Some new practitioners to Reiki may already be on the spiritual path prior to taking a Reiki class, doing yoga, meditation, eating healthy, doing other energy work, etc. so their bodies may be set up and ready to run Reiki more than others.  Some people may have physical bodies that are just made for this and have no issues at all with running the Reiki even all the time.

Practicing your Reiki Gassho Meditation daily will help your body adjust to running Reiki energy and help you to be able to run more Reiki, more often.

Everyone is different and we must not compare ourselves to anyone else.  Reiki is perfect for all of us at exactly the right time, teaching us as we go, as we practice.  For me, due to some chronic illness, I had to build up to this ability and it took some time and practice.  But, I got there.  I worked on my grounding, my boundaries and I really focused on being grateful for simply having the Reiki and being able to channel it.  Being grateful for where we are on our path at that time, no matter where it is, is very important to the Reiki path and being able to run more Reiki.  It was for me anyway.

Possible Solution
You might want to get a Reiki box or some designated box/bowl to put people’s names in and allow the box to act as the channel.  That way your body is not channeling to others all the time.

I purchase my Reiki Boxes from Mary Riposo at ........ for about $10 each.  They make wonderful gifts for people who work with Reiki.  That is how I got mine, a gift from a dear friend.

I use a Reiki Box that has been charged with Reiki and Reiki Symbols and can thus channel the Reiki all the time, even when I’m not putting my hands on it and running Reiki.  I keep the box next to my bed and do Reiki on it almost every night before bed. It’s become a beautiful spiritual ritual of helping others and I feel good about doing it.  This seems to help me.  That way I can ask if people want to be receiving Reiki before during and after a session and you can put them in the box.

Please let me know if this did not answer your question,
Blessings,

Thank you Joss,
That is so helpful! I love the idea of a Reiki box. The Reiki was very strong with a new client the other day. The strongest I had experienced. She wants to work with me more and I’ll discuss this with her.  I’m excited to be working with a new client that I don’t know. Somehow it helps me in receiving the confirmation from a person I don’t know. I am amazed daily by the way Reiki works in my life and makes it so much more…I don’t even have a word for it. I ‘Reikied’ my office space at work. I can feel the entire office sighing in relief.
I miss you so much!
Blessings,
Sharon
