When a perplexing situation comes up with a client I turn to what I call, The Foundational Truths of Reiki. When I remember these, then I can look at the situation in a new and different way. For instance, if a client is on my table and they are in more pain then when they came in during or after the Reiki, I can remember foundational truth #1-
REIKI IS ALWAYS POSITIVE AND CAN DO NO HARM
If we know that and believe it to be true (which I do and I do) then I can think, “ok, if Reiki is always positive and can do no harm, then what is this pain the client is feeling? Detox, healing opportunity, a fear that needs to be released, etc. Remembering the foundational truths gets me to ask a different questions or look at the situation from a new perspective. When we are able to get new information, then we are able to do the healing that needs to be done. We are not doing the healing, Reiki is doing the healing, but sometimes we need more information before we can access the healing.
Remember- ASK, LISTEN, TRUST, DO REIKI
Pray this helps some of you, when you do it,
Love and Light,
REMEMBER- REIKI IS ALWAYS POSITIVE

Hello, Josslyn/Joss here. Call me either one, I go by both.
One thing you might want to know about me if you’re reading this blog or considering a class or private session from me is that in my astrological chart and Human Design, I’m what is called a wounded healer. I have Chiron at a place in my life path where it is challenging me to heal and look in the mirror pretty much every day for my whole life. (Most people have it at two maybe three areas of their chart for about a year and a half each time). It seems to me sometimes that it’s drama after drama after drama; but I choose to call them HEALING OPPORTUNITIES!!
Since I’ve found Reiki and other energy healing modalities in 1997 when I woke up, I’ve turned the ‘drama’ in my life into healing, growth, learning and helping others.
I usually keep my blogs to writing about ideas of HOW to work with the Reiki you are channeling. But, life changes on a dime and we want to change with it to keep up. Saying that, I’ll admit this to you all, I’ve been struggling with writing blogs ever since the car crash my family was in in 2017. (If you don’t know about the crash, search Josslyn Streett + Colorado) Two of my family members were killed and I was near death for a few weeks. Communication is my life path, but verbally, not the written word. So, the blog writing has been the last thing on my list and I’m very sorry to you all for that. I haven’t forgotten about you, truly.
But, you know the Universe, from the crash, I did not die so there must be more work for me here, and hopefully more fun. THANK YOU REIKI IN ADVANCE FOR MORE FUN!!! (Ask and you shall receive)
I am here and my goal since the beginning of the healing process when I got home from the hospital is to not just live, but thrive. Well, that is easier said than done, even with Reiki. But, I’m a healer, I don’t give up and that is what life here on earth takes, do not give up hope, just keep moving forward best you can; one minute at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time. Whatever you can do, just keep moving on. And, with Reiki we have an extra special gift to do just that. I believe Reiki has saved my life many more times then those doctors in CO.
Our human subconscious minds still think healing is linear and it goes in a straight line and gets better and better as we heal with our Reiki and intentions. But, that is just not how human bodies work, or human soul paths. We go back and forth, forward then back, up then down, around and around and then we transition. Kind of like that. So the less we are attached to the linear way of thinking, the less we will stress ourselves out. But, as much as I know that in my conscious mine, I STILL WANT IT TO BE LINEAR in the process. So, long story longer almost five years later, I’m still very much healing, even new issues that have come up from five years ago; it’s a constant healing process as I’m still healing my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies and am teaching and working with clients in between, when I am able.
Thank you all for being patient with me when I have really not been able to write blogs or teach or even ADULT at all. Thank you all for sending Reiki to me and my son and our soul paths; it is much welcomed and much gratitude sent in return and Reiki blessings as well. And, thank you for being patient even still as I’m continuing my healing path and sometimes able to DO Reiki/Psychic classes and sometimes not. And, sometimes not writing blogs for long periods of time. We are actually working on a new website and the goal is to do video blogs, that is my more natural way of communicating and hopefully I’ll be more consistent. But, we’re human and so we do what we can do.
But, the other thing to know about me, especially IF you are considering having a private session or taking a class from me, I do not give up. I just keep on going at whatever pace I’m able to and I keep healing and teaching whenever I’m able. My son comes first, then my Reiki passion. Because, everything I learn from healing myself, I then turn around and teach YOU ALL!! That is what a wounded healer is. We have much to teach if you are able to go with the flow, you will heal much and learn much from us. As wounded healers we are also able to help you go DEEPER with your healing. We have a huge bandwidth of pain and trauma that we are able to pull from to help you go there, heal and release. We also understand people who have been through trauma because we have been there too. There is much to be said for a Reiki/Psychic Healing from a wounded healer. BUT, it’s all your soul path. So, if I resonate with you as a teacher/healer, then I’m the one to go to. If I do not, then keep looking.
It’s all good, it’s just not all easy!!

The first Reiki Class of 2021! Congratulations to all of you Reiki I Graduates! This class was so much fun to teach. We had a wide variety of students ranging from a family of three to college students, doctors to business professionals! It was so exciting to hear from our business professionals wanting to have a ‘Reiki’ business and offer Reiki Classes to their employees. I can’t think of a better way to run a business than having Reiki at its foundation. All these students will have the energy tools they need in navigating all that they do – from studying and testing in the classroom, family life, setting safe & sacred space, and healing themselves, others and the community. We are off to a great start this year and look forward to seeing all of you on any of our upcoming Zoom Events!
THANK YOU FOR HELPING US CONGRATULATION OUR NEWEST REIKI I CLASS!!!
CONGRATULATIONS EILEEN, HANNAH, KIM, ISABEL, ANDREW, MONICA & NIKKI
Day 1 Reiki Self Healing, History of Reiki and How Reiki Heals
By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki Energy Healing Center in Sequim, WA
The holiday time is not always the joyous time for some of us. For some of us they are very difficult without our loved ones, lonely, feeling emotional or mental traumas get worse by the unbalanced energy of everyone else being so happy and expecting others to be so too. There is so much expectation and many of us aren’t able to rise to it and don’t need to or want to. I understand. I’m in it too. I’m walking the path with many of you of grief, trauma, PTSD, depression.
I work with my Reiki constantly through the day to help life me up and get done the things I need/want to get done, and heal me in between. I am healing all day long.
Sometimes my students/clients are afraid they don’t have the right words so they don’t do their Gassho or turn to their Reiki when they could. You do not have to have the ‘right’ words. The perfect words come from your heart and just describe what you feel. Just tell Reiki Source HOW YOU FEEL and HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL. And ask the Reiki to HEAL THAT. And it will.
But some people like to have words as a jumping off place and I understand that as well.
So, I’m sharing a prayer that I like. I don’t remember where I found it, but I didn’t write it myself. Lets say, Author Known to God.
Blessings to all who are reading, may you have the best next two weeks that you can possibly have WITH THE LOVE AND LIGHT OF REIKI SURROUNDING YOU!!
Love and Light,
Josslyn, Ellen, Amber
TIP: ALWAYS BRING IN YOUR REIKI FIRST WHEN DOING ANY SPIRITUAL RITUAL/EVENT
Dear God/Reiki Source/Universe/The God of Your Heart,
Thank you for untying the knots that are in my mind, my heart, and my life.
Thank you for removing the have nots, the can nots, and the do nots that I have in my mind.
Thank you for erasing the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Thank you for releasing me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
and most of all, Reiki Source,
I thank you for removing from my mind, my heart and my life all of the ‘am nots’ that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.
Author Known to God

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!!
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.
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!)

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

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.
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.
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.
- 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,

Hi all, I’m home from Sedona, AZ and had a fabulous time. I’ll post more pictures when I get to it, but here is a selfie of me with the red rocks behind me. All three of us Reiki ladies seemed happiest when we were on the red rocks so we went every day.
I have some exciting new announcements for my Reiki business as well, those will come out with time. I’m happy to be home again. Love vacations, but I also love coming home. Blessings, Josslyn
