A Personal Message from Josslyn

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

NOTE: Rain Shadow Reiki is still teaching Reiki, Reiki and Psychic workshops and seeing private clients via Zoom mostly, but some in person.  IF you would like to get on our class list, please email us at rainshadowreiki@gmail.com . We’ve love to have you in our close knit Reiki community. 

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!!

This is me in my professionally taken photos for my blog. It was taken with my son’s graduation photos and it was a happy sunny day. Good memories of this day with my son.

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!!

SESSION/CLASS – IF you would like a private session via Zoom/phone with me or one of our Reiki/Psychic Healers, call or email us at 360-460-7829, rainshadowreiki@gmail.com .  We add our psychic healing gifts/modalities with Reiki for an incredible healing experience. 

Thank you for reading IF you stayed this long,

Thank you for your patience, 

Thank you for your loving comments,

Thank you for opening yourself up to all Reiki has to offer,

Thank you for being courageous and doing something new and different,

Thank you for wanting to be connected to Source,

Classes will start as soon as my Reiki tells me to start,

Love and Light, Josslyn/Joss

Join Us for March Healer’s Circle on Zoom

Come Join Us for Healers Circle
Wednesday, March 30th –  Rain Shadow Reiki Event – on ZOOM
 
Rain Shadow Reiki Healer’s Circle is a Reiki Circle, other healing modalities circle, spiritual support community and energy healing class, ALL WRAPPED UP INTO ONE EVENT!! 
 
The healers who show up get to create the event each time.  We call it Healer’s Circle because we learn more than just Reiki every time; we learn many different healing modalities to heal ourselves and those we love, and the world. 
 
What to expect:
 
The first half of the event is a support group for people who are healing themselves in this life and maybe even healing others as well.  It is for ALL people who feel they are drawn to healing work, not just for professionals.  We introduce ourselves at first, talk about the challenges we are having or not having especially being highly sensitive, empathic or psychic.  Any of the healers who attend may respectfully help with their unique life information and experience, we learn from each other’s wealth of knowledge.  Then we take a break.  The second half of the event, Creator tells us what to do as far as a healing modality based on what happened in the first half of the group.  We never know what we will do and it’s usually quite unique and different, usually fun and quite often we learn so much.  Josslyn is ready if our Divine Guidance says we need to have a channeled meditation for healing, do Reiki Psychic Healing, ThetaHealing  or some other type of psychic healing.  But, anyone is welcome to teach something new from their specific wheelhouse as long as it is Divinely Guided.  We go with the Divine Flow!!  With Reiki, we know it’s always for our best and highest good.

EVERY MONTH IS AWESOME!!! 
 
This Circle is for Energy Healers of all modalities to get together and hold space for each other to share, heal, learn and BE.  We will be talking about being a healer with the unique challenges and gifts and what that means.  Discussing the challenges we are having in our daily lives and how best to heal them.  We will be learning to hold space for each other and ourselves.  Then we will organically flow into healing ourselves, each other, our communities of our planet and Mother Earth – wherever spirit guides us!
It is INCREDIBLE every single month!! We leave feeling more clean, clear, magical, heart centered, connected and more in tune with the Creator.  We can’t wait!!  
 
Reiki is not required, but always recommended.  In the flow of the monthly events, each person can share their healing modalities with the group as organically needed, wanted and of free will. It is not required. You can just show up and listen, it’s all good.  We ask you to introduce yourself and just be a part of the group as much as you are ready, willing and able to be. 
 
 
Hope to see you there!  Call or email with any questions.

Reiki Didn’t Work For Me

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

*****If you believe Reiki didn’t work for you, may I suggest you read on…..

**2nd in a series on being successful with your Reiki practice when it doesn’t come easy to you.  Here is a link to the first blog, Signs that your Reiki Really is ON.

In my classes, like my teacher before me,  I tell people to look back after one year of being attuned to Reiki and they will see how their lives have changed a great deal.  IF AND ONLY IF they are actually working with their Reiki regularly.  DAILY IS BEST.
I encourage you to work with your Reiki each and every day in your life, make it a part of your daily living and you will see major changes for good happening right away.
 However, what if Reiki doesn’t come easy to you?  What do you do then?
Easy………. like any other new thing in your life, stick to it, make it a priority, and then DO IT!! DO IT ANYWAY!!
GO WITH THE FLOW
With Reiki, I’m a very go with the flow teacher.  I believe the more we attempt to control our spiritual practice, the more Divine gives us lessons for control.
But, for this one thing, starting a new and very important habit that can literally change your life for the better — This One Time, Don’t Go With The Flow.  
*****REMINDER:

ANY CHANGE IS STRESS
In the beginning doing Reiki will be new and therefore different. Anything different to us can often be construed as STRESS!! ………..Oh no, not that!
If your mind translates the Reiki as stress then you will probably protect yourself from the stress by NOT doing it. Sabotage will occur, you stop doing it and then you end up seeing no benefits and it’s easy to say “Reiki didn’t work for me.”  When this is really not the truth at all.
We must work at the habit of the Reiki.
The daily work, the consistency to learn it, feel it and want it, is the hard part, the Reiki itself is the easy part.
Joss’ Story
“Doing Reiki for others came very easy to me, I’m a giver and always have been.  Receiving was totally new to me.  Therefore, doing Reiki on myself daily did not happen for quite a long time after taking my Reiki classes.  I knew I had these mental belief blocks to doing Reiki on myself, and I knew I needed to heal them, so I decided to do a lot of Reiki on others and INTEND to heal these blockages in my belief system during these healings on others.  Since our client and ourselves both receive Reiki, this was my indirect way of healing myself, the scenic route to healing an issue.  Longer, but also effective. This takes a little longer, but for me it worked – until it didn’t.  I reached a point where my intuition was giving me signs that this was no longer what I needed, I needed to do hands on Reiki daily.  I needed a new plan.  
So, I decided the old fashioned way was best for me.  It was close to the end of the year, so I decided that on New Years Day, I would make ONE New Years Resolution.  For that entire year, I would do Reiki on myself every single day, no matter what.  This was the only new major commitment I made that year and I stuck to it, because I knew I needed to and because I made the commitment to myself.  There were only two days where I had the stomach flu and did not accomplish my daily Reiki, every other day I did.  And what is more important, now doing Reiki on myself became MY NEW NORMAL.  Now, if I don’t do daily Reiki, I don’t feel normal and my body, mind and spirit remind me of this at the end of the day.  It’s a win/win.”
 Other Help – ME!
IF after a month of doing daily Reiki, you still have blockages that you can’t seem to budge, call me for a private session.  That is when we need other healers to help us.  Divine wants us to work together as a community.  He wants us to work as a team, to trust others.  If you have truly done all you feel you can do, that is when you ask for other help.   And if you are truly ready, mind, body and spirit, Reiki and myself will help remove the blockages that are holding you back.  Helping people move forward on their spiritual path is one of my specialties and one of my most favorite paths to help with.  I feel there is no other path that is more worthwhile than working on our connection to our Higher Selves.  I’m happy to help with this process.
 I pray this motivates some of you to take some action in your lives and practice your Reiki.  It’s all good.  It’s all part of YOUR personal journey.  Ask yourself, do I want my journey to start NOW?
 In Love and Light of our Divine Source,
 Josslyn

Wounded Healer=Healer

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

Understand your darkness and it will vanish; then you will know what light is.  Understand your nightmare for what it is and it will stop; then you will wake up to reality.  Understand your false beliefs and they will drop; then you will know the taste of happiness.”

Father Anthony De Mello

My star chart calls me a ‘wounded healer.’

img_1767
Josslyn

Since I read that for the first time, it made sense to me.  It resonated to me, at the time, but it won’t always.

It described the route my soul choose in order to get where I am; abuse, chronic illness, trauma, depression.  Not always fun, not easy, but rarely boring and quite literally, expansive.  It has facilitated me in learning the lessons I needed to learn to be the stronger, more intuitive and more interesting person I am today.

My chart also says that through healing myself, I also help others to facilitate their own healing.  This is a gift for sure.  Heal one, heal many.  That has been the theme of this year for me.

This has been my personal process for my whole life, and, for that, I am grateful.

Sharing what I have learned with others, watching others go through the expanding of their own healing process is renewal of spirit and incredibly rewarding.  And for that too, I am grateful.

Since my father passed away last September I’ve been thrown into a whirl-wind of healing opportunities.

Blogging, unfortunately, has not been a part of it.  I’ve been deep in healing myself, which all healers need to be conscious of and DO consistently more than any healing for others.  The beauty of Reiki is that when you heal yourself or anyone else, everyone benefits.  It’s divine.

When a large change happens, like the death of a parent, we need to take time for ourselves to heal, process and expand.  I’ve been doing just that and I’m getting there.  Patience is a big part of this process.  I’m grateful for yours, and I’m practicing mine a great deal.

I know I’ll have plenty to share when I’m ready, but I’m still not at the point where blogging feels helpful or needed.  I have yet to be motivated by spirit to do it.

So, Thank You For Your Patience, as I don’t yet feel blogging and writing about my path this past year is for my highest good.  Yes.  I’m grateful to those of you have have noticed and spoken to me about it.  That means some of you are reading and noticing.  For that, again, I am grateful.  Thank you for reading, thank you for your patience and hopefully when I come back to it, you’ll be ready to read because it’s been quite a year and I’d like to share what I’ve learned with those who want to hear about it.

When spirit moves me, I’ll be back talking about Reiki and other healing modalities that I am learning through this process.  The wait, I believe, will be worth it.

It has been a year of miracles for me.  I believed in miracles for my clients, for other people, this year I finally believed for myself.  Ask and you shall receive.  I asked for a healing miracle and I received a healing miracle.  I’ll write about it to share with you all soon.  In the meantime, I’m taking what I’ve learned and helping others as much as I possibly can.

ALL HEALING COMES FROM GOD, DIVINE, GREAT SPIRIT, UNIVERSE, whatever you call your Higher Power of Love and Light.  Ask and you shall receive…

Blessings to you all,

Josslyn

A Reiki Attunement Story with Fairies

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

“During the attunement, the Rei or God-Consciousness makes adjustments in the student’s chakras and energy pathways to accommodate the ability to channel Reiki and then links the students to the Reiki Source……..The attunement is also attended by Reiki Guides and other spiritual beings who help implement the process.”   William Lee Rand

My Reiki Guides Celebrate

A personal story from Josslyn about spiritual beings being present during her Reiki Master attunement.

I took my Reiki III class with one other student who was highly developed in her Clairvoyant abilities.  She impressed us all with what she saw and shared with us in our energy fields, because we felt it to be true in our own inner knowing we believed in her abilities.  At the time of the attunement, we sat side by side in chairs, both feeling like we were being attuned together as one, rather than one at a time.

I rarely feel any energy movement in my physical body when I get attunements, but I feel a great deal as a Master/Teacher when I give attunements.  However, I have found, that during attunements, I see more than I feel.  This came as a bit of a surprise to me on this day.  I guess because I hadn’t thought to ‘look’ for anything before this attunement.  And, if I had looked on purpose, maybe they wouldn’t have come.  Who knows.  But, today, I wasn’t looking and they did come.  They showed themselves very obviously in front of me, celebrating, dancing and singing, right where I could see them easily and not miss their celebration.

Butterfly fairies celebrating!

I remember clearly during that Reiki Master Attunement, the other student and I both saw and were aware of many fairies and other elemental beings singing and dancing and celebrating all around us during and shortly after our attunement.  Some were dancing, some beating on drums and others singing.  They were totally joyful.

Coming Home to Reiki

I had the feeling they were celebrating my coming back to Reiki.  They told me that I had been attuned to Reiki in another life, that I had been a Reiki Master there too and they were putting on a big party in honor of my “coming home.”

I loved it.  I was in awe.  It reminded me that not only is the Reiki Attunement a highly spiritual and sacred process but one worth celebrating with music, dance and great joy as well!  The fact that the other student and my teacher were all a part of this celebration too, was just great confirmation and the icing on the cake, so to speak.

This fairy celebration has stayed with me for many years, reminding me of so many important lessons and keeping them close to my heart.

Some of them were drumming, some singing and some dancing.  All were celebrating.
Some of them were drumming, some singing and some dancing. All were celebrating.

It reminds me regularly:

  • That we are not alone in our Reiki practice.  Our Reiki Guides and our Divine Source truly are invested in how we do, what we do, and who we do it with.   They are equally committed to our spiritual progress as we are. 
  • It reminds me to bring joy to my life and my spiritual practice each and every day.
  • It reminds me that I have done this before and now, I am just ‘remembering’ what I already know, what I already feel inside.
  • It reminds me of the supreme sacredness of the Reiki Attunement process each and every time I’m attuning a new student to Reiki.
  • Being a Reiki Master/Teacher and giving attunements to others is such an immense honor, it also reminds me of how blessed I am to be doing this.

Great Reiki Blessings to you all, I pray that you find what is sacred to you in this life and pursue it.

In Love and Light,

Josslyn

The Value of the Small Every Day Lessons-Theresa Caputo, Book Excerpt

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

As a healer, we can sometimes get caught up in the BIG and so-called IMPORTANT life lessons, I know I do.  Luckily Spirit also reminds me often as to the importance of the smaller, every day lessons.  I was reminded recently of the lessons of gratitude and forgiveness but also of daily joy, sacrafice and kindness. Every single day we have a choice to be kind or to act impatiently with people. Every single day we have the choice to bring joy into our daily routine or to look at it with contempt at the monotony of it.  These are smaller lessons that are also very important because they make up the whole of our day and affect our mood and attitude, but they can also have powerful ripple effects across many people’s lives that we may not be consciously aware of.

I read this one first, lost of fun!!
I read this one first, lost of fun!!

I am currently reading two books by Theresa Caputo, The Long Island Medium, “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” and “There’s More To LIfe Than This”.  I won these books in an auction basket at my son’s school and couldn’t believe I didn’t have them.  I love her show and I love reading books by mediums.  I have at least ten different books by mediums: Brian Hurst, James Van Praagh, Allison Dubois, John Edward, and more and I’ve loved them all.  I read and reread them for the inspirational messages about our loved ones communicating with us, even though, I too, do this work for my clients.  I still love reading the stories.  They always life my spirit and that is a good thing.  I recommend them if you are grieving, they helped me through some difficult periods of grief.

So, here is a small segment from Theresa’s book, “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” on little lessons, it spoke to me.  There are lots of good parts of this book, but this one said ‘SHARE ME,’ so I’m sharing.  Some times the ‘little lessons’ are in the forefront of your life and they can have just as much impact as the big lessons.

(Theresa’s books and more books by mediums are available in the Rain Shadow Reiki lending library for check out.)

Book Excerpt: You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Are You My Lesson?

Though some lessons might smack you in the face, be on the lookout for less obvious ones.  I think most people assume that all lessons happen during major moments, like a heartbreaking death or beautiful soul mate reunion, because you feel their impact long after they happen.  Certainly, losing a parent or gaining a best friend changes your life in an instant.  But spirit also tells me that we learn lessons in small, everyday interactions too.  If you feel the urge to buy a stranger a cookie, say, or hold the door for a father lugging groceries, a diaper bag, and a car seat, everyone’s day and souls benefit from that kindness.

BOOKYou-cant-make-this-stuff-up-TheresaCaputo_lgOn a more frustrating and stupid note, you know that jerk who took your seat on the bus?  He could be a lesson in patience.  How about your money-mooching brother? Generosity.  Or your husband’s friends who got pizza sauce on your couch during Sunday Night Football?  Probably sacrifice.  so the next time you’re at Thanksgiving dinner, and your sister-in-law leaves you out of family photos, don’t try to control, over analyze, fight against it, or go cryin’ in the bathroom, “Why is this happening to me, of all people?”

 Look for the lesson instead.

Let the situation unfold, and find the reason.

It helps you deal, and here’s why: When the reason, and not the problem, becomes your focus, you don’t think about how sad, pissed-off, or doomed you are.  You can accept the outcome, then concentrate on how to move past it.  Your life is your responsibility– your soul chose it long ago.  If you want a positive and fulfilling journey, don’t let people hold you back.  And don’t forget, Spirit is ready to intervene when you ask.

When I accepted my gift, God told me in so many words that He wants our lives to be as rewarding and connected to each other as possible–but listen, this can’t happen if you don’t participate in your own happiness.  Even when there’s a tragedy, you can’t let life happen to you when it’s time to pick up the pieces.  God gave you a beautiful, complex world in which to become a better, stronger, and happier you.

And while painful situations can feel forced upon you, how you cope and work through them is a choice and, yep, usually a lesson.

Your life is your responsibility -- your soul chose it long ago.  If you want a positive and fulfilling journey, don't let people hold you back.  And don't forget Spirit is ready to intervene when you ask.  Theresa Caputo
Your life is your responsibility — your soul chose it long ago. If you want a positive and fulfilling journey, don’t let people hold you back. And don’t forget Spirit is ready to intervene when you ask. Theresa Caputo

So you know that saying “Everything happens for a reason”?  Spirit’s proven to me that it’s not just for motivational posters and crocheted pillows!  It’s actually part of your soul’s lessons and path.  during readings, your loved ones’ souls have told me that there’s an order to why things occur the way they do, like when one person survives a car accident but another passenger dies, or when a child sees her deceased sister’s spirit but other people can’t.  The literal answer to why these freaky examples happen is related to destiny and intuition.  But if I dig deeper with Spirit, it might turn out that an accident victim’s death inspired his family to work toward enacting tougher drunk driving laws, and the girl who saw Spirit comforted her grieving family with her stories.  Talk about how worthwhile reasons, not to mention great examples of how our souls learn and teach lessons to others!”

“You rarely know the big or small lessons you’re learning when you’re in the middle of them; you usually see them after the fact.  I say better late than never.  Some people spend their entire lives miserable and never realize those feelings were necessary in order for them to grow.  I know it was easy for me to lose sight of God’s purpose when I suffered from anxiety.  Even after I realized that in a roundabout way, my scary condition could bring others peace–how’s that for irony? — it took me five stubborn years to embrace my gift.  But once I accepted that it was part of a bigger plan, I let myself learn all I could.  This made me feel empowered, which helped me see that my past wasn’t a waste.

Instead of remembering this period as the twenty-five years that nearly ruined my life, I saw it as God’s long-term investment in redirecting my path.

I used to get upset wondering how much better off I’d be if anxiety didn’t ‘hold me back,’ but my take on that period of time has changed.  Listen, I might not have met Larry at work or had kids young if I’d had a career in Manhattan, or been surrounded by friends and family when I accepted my gift, if I’d felt safe and secure moving away from them.  Things worked out as they were supposed to as soon as I looked for healing and guidance, found it, and then ran with it.  I welcomed my path and stayed open to my lessons, and I’ve been blessed ever since.  In a lot of ways, anxiety’s been one hell of a teacher.

Life reminds me of one of those fancy knitting projects on Pinterest–your learned lessons and life events create intricate patterns, and the recurring stitch is your purpose.  Whether you volunteer, make people laugh, or start political movements, you’re meant to make a difference in some way.  I realize that it’s easy for me to say that Spirit wants us to live with intent, since they’re in my ear all day, talking about how much there is to know.  But hey, I’m not letting their words go unnoticed.  You’ve got me, and I’ve got a big mouth!  These lips have a purpose!

A lot like your lessons, your purpose doesn’t have to be prestigious or put you in the spotlight.  Who cares if you never become a celebrated novelist, brain surgeon, or the next Kardashian?  Your purpose could mean a lot on a smaller scale.  It might be about prioritizing family, improving your community, or caring for animals.  There are a lot of cats out there that need foster homes!”

When you learn lessons, you don’t suddenly get richer, become mayor, or turn into a Positive Polly.  You gain something much harder to earn and more valuable — wisdom.  Learning lessons isn’t about being perfect, it’s about recognizing that your time here unfolds the way it’s meant to, as you make choices that fulfill you.

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

CONGRATULATIONS NEW REIKI II PRACTITIONERS!! April 2015

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

What a perfect way to start the week, with a Reiki class!!  I attuned four new Reiki II Practitioners yesterday, Beth, Stephanie, Kimberly and Naomi, and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Congratulations Naomi, Beth, Kimberly and Stephanie!!  Reiki II Practitioners April 6th, 2015
Congratulations Naomi, Beth, Kimberly and Stephanie!! Reiki II Practitioners April 6th, 2015

There are so many ways to work with Reiki in our lives to make our lives more spiritual.  To actually work with this human body as a spiritual tool, making our lives more fulfilling every single day.  All four of these women are so different and have such different paths in life, it’s always exciting for me to watch their journey unfold as time goes by.  All four of these women say they want to work with their Reiki as healers, but what does that mean?  We don’t know yet.  There is no one way to be a healer.  They will most likely each carve their own path and be unique in their healing choices.  But, knowing they want to do more with their Reiki, knowing they want to take more classes, gives them a goal, an insight and a possibility to work towards.  It’s very exciting as long as they allow for Divine changes in the path, and I do believe these ladies are out of the box thinkers and will do that.  I can’t wait to find out.

One of the many great parts of my path as a Reiki Teacher is to be a small part of this journey and watch my students grow and change and have those ‘A-ha’ moments that are so miraculous.  I am so grateful to be a Reiki Teacher and to be a part of these remarkable women’s lives.  Thank you to all who chose me as your teacher, thank you for allowing me to witness and play along side.  I truly LOVE what I do and you all make it extraordinary!  Take your Reiki hands and stretch the box, see what is possible ladies!!

Reiki Blessings to you all, Josslyn

WE LOVE REIKI ! REIKI II CLASS FEBRUARY 2015

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

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

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

 

Here are some testimonials from them and their Reiki recipients:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Josslyn Streett, incredibly grateful to be a Reiki Teacher
