The 12 Laws of Karma. 

The 12 Laws of Karma. 

Karma is a word that is often tossed around as something negative. When someone does something nasty to another we crack a small grin, shake our heads knowingly and say “karma will get them back”.

But Karma isnt a bad thing. Karma is “what is”. It is cause and effect. It is universal balance. It is your actions and it’s reaction. So just like Karma may come back to someone who did something bad, so will Karma come back for someone who does good and it’s this side of Karma that will change you life.

I have studied and applied Law of Attraction for many years and my life today is magical. Today I stumbled upon the Laws of Karma and found them to be quite profound. All of these steps together can have significant life altering effect on your life.

I love to read but my house is small so books are an issue. My tablet and phone are great inside but are disasters outside. Then I discovered this little jewel!

THE GREAT LAW

  1. “As you sow, so shall you reap”. This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect”.
  2. Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.
  3. If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Love, Friendship… Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend.

THE LAW OF CREATION

  1. Life doesn’t just HAPPEN, it requires our participation.
  2. We are one with the Universe, both inside and out.
  3. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state.
  4. BE yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have present in your Life.

THE LAW OF HUMILITY

  1. What you refuse to accept, will continue for you.
  2. If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.

THE LAW OF GROWTH

  1. “Wherever you go, there you are”.
  2. For us to GROW in Spirit, it is we who must change – and not the people, places or things around us.
  3. The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES and that is the only factor we have control over.
  4. When we change who and what we are within our heart our life follows suit and changes too.

THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY

  1. Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me.
  2. We mirror what surrounds us – and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth.
  3. We must take responsibility what is in our life.

Karma: The Ancient Science of Cause and Effect

I have not read this book but it has a 5 star review on Amazon and they all say its easy to read and understand. Right to the point. I like books that dont fill pages with fluff!!

Chakra Clearing- Doreen Virtue- Book and Meditations

THE LAW OF CONNECTION

  1. Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected.
  2. Each step leads to the next step, and so forth and so on.
  3. Someone must do the initial work to get a job done.
  4. Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance,
  5. As they were both needed to accomplish the task.
  6. Past-Present-Future they are all connected…

THE LAW OF FOCUS

  1. You can not think of two things at the same time.
  2. When our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.

THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY

  1. If you believe something to be true,then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth.
  2. Here is where we put what we CLAIM that we have learned, into actual use.

PRACTICE. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW

  1. Looking backward to examine what was, prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW.
  2. Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dream prevent us from having new ones.

THE LAW OF CHANGE

  1. History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.

THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD

  1. All Rewards require initial toil.
  2. Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent toil.
  3. True joy follows doing what we’re suppose to be doing, and waiting for the reward to come in on its own time.

THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION

  1. You get back from something whatever YOU have put into it.
  2. The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.
  3. Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole.
  4. Lack luster contributions have no impact on the Whole, nor do they work to diminish it.
  5. Loving contributions bring life to, and inspire, the Whole.

Am I doing Reiki correctly?

Am I doing Reiki correctly?

Every time I teach Level 1 and Level 2 Reiki I think back on the time when I first became Reiki. I had a wonderful, loving and very thorough teacher. We went through the manual, basically the same one I use now which is from the International School of Reiki Training. We had plenty of practice of giving Reiki, we received Reiki and we learned and practiced self Reiki. After classes were over I found a Reiki buddy and we shared a session or two. I even went to Reiki Shares.

But I still harbored doubts whether my Reiki was “working or not” and wondering if I was doing it correctly. Have you been there? Are you there now?

It took me years to finally learn to trust that Reiki was working and that I was “doing it right” because I also learned that there is no wrong way to do Reiki.

What I finally came to grip with, and what I want to share with you, is that Reiki is the one that is doing the “doing”. We are the human channel, the connection between source and our client. We are the human touch.

So let me tell you…..There is no wrong way to do Reiki and YES you are doing it right because at least you are DOING IT!!

ENTER THE EGO

When we begin to doubt our gift it is our ego stepping in. Our ego is a loud creature and loves to fill us full of doubt. And it likes to mess with us.  The EGO I am talking about has the definition of “a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance.”

It is our ego that tells us that our Reiki is not working, or that we aren’t doing it right or that we have no business doing it at all. And it comes flying in because we start telling ourselves that we are the ones that are doing the healing.

I know, because I have been there, and still sometimes go there!!  Yeap, I will admit that. My silly ego still likes to mess with me a bit.

REIKI IS DOING ALL THE WORK

The thing to remember is that Reiki is the healer, Reiki is doing the Healing. We are just vessels, the channel for the energy. We need to step aside and let Reiki DO ITS THING. It does not matter if you forget to draw the symbols, or you mess up the symbols. It does not matter if you don’t do all the hand positions, in fact, its better if you let Reiki guide your hand placements.

So start using your Reiki. Place your Reiki charged hands on yourself, your food, your dog, your crystals, your water. Shine those hands at your shower head for a lovely Reiki filled shower.  Send Reiki to your garden, the animals in the forest, your job.  When someone asks for prayers, send them Reiki Charged Prayers.

You have asked for, and recieved, an amazing gift from the Divine, from Creator, from God. Use it and watch your life change.

The Chakras

The Chakras

Chakras

I had never heard of chakras until I started practicing Reiki. They sounded so exotic that I knew I needed to delve a little farther into them if I was going to be working with energy healing. The Chakras aren’t really taught in Reiki classes but it did not take me long to discover that the basic hand positions covered and healed the chakras. Now my Reiki practice incorporates the intention that the Chakras are healed and balanced with every Reiki Session I give.

And I do cover the Chakras as well as using a pendulum in my Reiki Classes

What is a Chakra?

Our bodies are not only physical entities but we also have an energetic body which consists of the Aura, the energy field that surrounds us, the Chakras which are spinning orbs of energy and meridians which are like energy veins.

Although there are many Chakras, there are seven major ones that we tend to concentrate most on. They are like a ladder for our life. The bottom rung is our root, where we start on the ground and we climb to the heavens at our crown chakra.

Crystals for Chakra Balancing

These are the crystals I use at home when I am needing some balancing.  Garnet, Carnelian, Citrine, Malachite, Blue Lace Agate, Lapis Lazuli and Amethyst

The chakras are our energy centers, spinning wheels or spheres often likened to a ceiling fan which spin clockwise, that push healing, vital energy to the physical, emotional and spiritual areas they govern.

Maintaining high vibrational, vital energy within our body is so important to becoming healthy and maintaining our health yet it is often overlooked. We tend to concentrate on healing our physical bodies. By working with your energy system you will add another layer to your healing path and it is complementary to working with the healthcare system.

On a Physical level, each chakra oversees the health of specific areas of your body as well as how you interact with your surroundings and other peoples energies.

On a Spiritual/Emotional Level the chakras aid in your life growth and how you handle the world around you.

Balanced chakras have a good flow of energy through them. When the energy becomes blocked, or slow, it becomes unbalanced or out of alignment.  That is when dis-ease sets into the body or mind. Keeping your chakras balanced can help keep dis-ease from settling in. It helps you stay strong to yourself and handle everyday stressors and setbacks with greater ease, allowing you to live a happier, healthier life.  

Most energy healing modalities focus on the chakras. As a Reiki Practitioner, I can tell you the hand positions taught are in line with the chakras. The Chakras are the area of the highest concentration of energy within the body which makes them the easiest to share with the outside world. Everyday life occurrences, good or bad, will affect our chakras. They are always changing. Our chakras need to stay spinning, open and balanced for us to have a happy, healthy life. Some things that can affect our chakras are stress, illness, emotions, thoughts. 

So let us take a look at each one of them 

crown chakraCROWN (7th) 

  • Its located a few inches above the head
  • It is the fastest spinning and the highest vibration of all the chakras
  • Associated color is vivid purple or violet
  • Governs spirituality. Connection to the universe, imagination, awareness, optimism, ability to receive thoughts, information, and ideas from spirit
  • Crystals – Amethyst, charoite, sugilite, labradorite, rutilated quartz, selenite
  • If your Crown Chakra is out of balance, blocked or moving slowly it may result in depression, a feeling of disconnect, pessimism and lethargy. You may have nervous system disorders, skin conditions, dementia
  • Aromatherapy Essential Oils – Frankincense, Sandalwood, Melissa, Wintergreen

 

Brow ChakraBROW OR THIRD EYE (6th)  

  • This is the energy system that governs the minds, ideas, thoughts, dreams, psychic abilities.
  • It is where creativity and inspiration are combined.
  • When healthy and balanced, helps to remove negative and selfish attitudes
  • The Third Eye Chakra is the eye of your true or higher self
  • The color is a deep indigo blue. If you can see your chakras, often you will see an eye in the center
  • It is affected by thoughts of the future or the past. Not living in the present
  • Can be affected by a desire to see or the fear of seeing angels, guides, and apparitions
  • Crystals – Lapis Lazuli, Sodalite, Sapphire, Moldavite, Pietersite
  • Out of balance – Headaches and migraines, Mental Illness, Personality disorders, Sinusitis, Eye conditions, Learning disabilities, Feelings of negativity, lack of ambition. Essentially you are disconnected from yourself.
  • Aromatherapy Essential Oils – Sandalwood, Helichrysum, Lemongrass, Rosemary

 

Throat ChakraTHROAT (5th 

  • Center for communication and expression. It is through this chakra that we communicate, either through verbal, body language or telepathy.
  • This governs your ability to be a leader. A clear throat chakra allows you to speak your truth. 
  • You are able to ask for your needs to be met 
  • It allows us to tell the world how we feel and to express ourselves.
  • When out of balance there will be fears of speaking out, speaking in public or sharing your thoughts. This will weaken and shrink your chakra as well as cause stress
  • Over talking and obsessing in speech is usually due to an overstimulated chakra
  • The color is light blue
  • Crystals –  Blue lace agate, apatite, Turquoise, kyanite, azurite
  • Aromatherapy Essential oils – Lavender, Frankincense, Cilantro, Eucalyptus
  • Physical manifestations of an unbalanced throat chakra can be skin rashes, heart attack, weak or bad back, digestive issues like Crohns or IBS, Fear of speaking your mind, lack of concentration, Attention deficit, Feelings of unease, nervousness, and anxiety

HEART (4th)Heart Chakra

  • This is the center of love and compassion. It is your connection to you and everyone around you.
  • It aids in feeling safe, trusting, sense of adventure, forgiveness.
  • It Governs your commitments to relationships and attachments to other people
  • Fear of giving or being loved will shrink this chakra
  • Relationship addictions or obsessions is indicative of an overstimulated heart chakra
  • This is the center, the bridge between the lower, earthly chakras and the higher spiritual chakras
  • The color is green
  • Crystals are Malachite, aventurine, Rose quartz, Amazonite, Emerald, Jade
  • Unbalanced- Emotionally confused, Unloving, uncaring, dispassionate, Narrow-minded, It may cause heart disease. Governs the Lungs so respiratory conditions may come up, repeated colds, cant get over colds, flu. Early physical signs of aging
  • Aromatherapy  Essential Oils – Rose, Geranium, Thyme, Lemon

Solar PlexusSOLAR PLEXUS (3rd) 

  • This is the center of your personal power and regulates your ambition, desire, and emotions.
  • A weak Solar Plexus chakra can result in control issues, authority issues, fears of being out of control or losing control, past or future issues that are out of your control
  • An overstimulated chakra is someone who is very controlling or obsessed with being in control
  • The color of this chakra is yellow
  • My favorite stone to use is citrine- and just like citrine, it is a master cleanser. Some say Citrine helps cleanse other crystals, the solar plexus chakra helps regulate and cleanse other chakras of negativity. Most likely because when you are in touch with your personal power you are more in tune to everything that is happening around you, more able to feel what is happening and to react appropriately in your best and highest good. It is like your own personal internal pendulum
  • Unbalanced – Lack of concentration, Failing memory, Falling asleep during the day, Insomnia, Digestive disorders, Eating disorders

  • It can also manifest as cravings for physical pleasures (food, drink, sex, thrills), addictions, as well as body and appearance obsessions. 

Base ChakraBASE or ROOT- (1st)  In some books this is referred to as a root chakra but the root chakra is located under your feet

  • This is the chakra of survival, as well as governing our connection to family and friends. It governs our career, financial stability, your homes, your physical needs and your possessions
  • Some say this is where the resting Kundalini exists.
  • This is where we experience our connection to the earth and our earthly life.
  • When your Base chakra is balanced you are grounded and stable and able to move forward in life.
  • An understimulated chakra will result in feelings of inadequacy, lack, and limitations 
  • An overstimulated chakra expresses itself in being a workaholic and overachiever. •
  • Color is red

  • Aromatherapy Essential Oils – Patchouli, Vetiver, Myrrh, Grounding Blend
  • When out of balance you can experience chronic back pain, Sciatica, Varicose veins, Water retention, Constipation or diarrhea, Immune disorders, Feelings of insecurity and phobias, panic attacks.

I think I am an Empath. What do I do, it’s driving me crazy?

I think I am an Empath. What do I do, it’s driving me crazy?

In my Reiki practice, whether I am talking to someone before a session or teaching a class, I often hear “Someone told me I am an empath, and it’s driving me crazy”. How do I stop it or control it?

The definition of an empath is basically someone who feels the emotions of other people, places or things.

Most everyone can sense other folks emotional changes but empaths tend to take it on as their own. They may physically feel the pain, they may actually start crying, they may appear to be moody, are often called over sensitive and because they pick up on so much of other people stuff they tend to stay away from crowds and are considered loners.

Walk your own pathDo you think you are an empath? This article on ReikiRays.com has a great eye opener list of traits to tell if you are. I honestly did not think I was until I fell under the majority of these “symptoms”

Empathy can be seen as a gift or it can be seen as a curse, that choice is yours

It can be a pretty difficult way to live and many empaths tend to think of it as a curse. But it doesn’t have to be, it can actually be a gift. Empaths make wonderful healers and counselors. They can often times sense more clearly what is wrong. They can be compassionate because they can “feel” as their client feels.

But until you learn how to discern between your own emotions and feelings and those of others, the path of an empath can be quite unsettling. You may find yourself taking on others emotions to the point of causing you emotional stress or even physical illness. You may wonder what is wrong with you, why can you not be happy. You may walk into a room and feel overwhelming sadness to a point where you can not enjoy going out. Certain people may make you very uncomfortable, drained and overwhelmed. You are drained by the end of the day.

Does this sound familiar? So let’s talk about a few things you can do.

First, recognize that you are an empath. It’s not going to go away so you need to learn to live with it. Think of it as a gift, not a curse.

When you wake up in the morning, prepare yourself for the day by setting intention through the use of affirmations. Affirmations are short, powerful and positive statements that when repeated daily become part of your subconscious.

  • I am a compassionate, kind person who is respected and well loved
  • I only feel emotions and energy that are mine, and I release of all that does not belong to me
  • I don’t have to fix everything and everyone.
  • The energy that I receive and surrounds me is of the highest good for me.
  • I am protected from all energy that does not belong to me
  • I surround myself with white healing light.
  • I only hear, see, feel, and sense emotional information that is important for me to know and act upon.

Before leaving the house for the day visualize a big long zipper from your feet to the top of your head. Zipper up and lock as if you are zipping into a bag that surrounds you,

Get a Reiki Session. Reiki is a one way flow using divine energy. As an empath, you have probably blocked your energy pathways and Chakras as a defense mechanism. In order to live a happy balanced life your life force energy needs to be able to flow smoothly, without restriction. A Reiki session will unblock these pathways and raise your energetic vibration.

Learn Reiki. If you are in a healing position already, like nurse, counselor, therapist etc, Reiki can be an extra tool for you to help others by focusing on the areas you already know needs work. Empaths make wonderfully healers, Reiki also helps keep your own energetic and physical body in a place of calm and joy.  Empaths make terrific Healers.

Ask your angels to protect you from other people Energy allowing you to know which is your feelings and what are others feelings

Empathy is a gift. Do not shun from it but embrace the fact that you will make a wonderful healer.

Crystals For EmpathsCrystals for Empaths

Carry or wear these crystals. You can also use them in your work or healing space to draw out negative energy and create a loving, compassionate environment. I have tried to choose common, easy to find crystals that any crystal shop will have or you may already own. Remember to cleanse them often so that all the negative energy they absorb will be released, I also suggest placing them out under the full moon every month for a cleansing moon bath.

  • Rose quartz- the beautiful pink, easy to find crystal is the crystal for self love. It will help sooth your heart chakra and bring love to the forefront
  • Black tourmaline- this highly protective stone repels negativity.
  • Amethyst- this beautiful purple stone is connected with the brow (third eye) Chakra as well as the crown chakra. Not only is it a protective stone but it will help you connect to your inner self and spiritual self.
  • Unakite to help keep your emotions in balance

Feel free to leave a comment. I would love  to hear about your experiences and what may have worked for you.

Namaste.

Reiki Drumming-A healing tool

Reiki Drumming-A healing tool

For  several years I had been hearing about Reiki Drumming but I never had a chance to experience it until I attended the 2017 International Reiki Retreat in Sedona AZ. It was on our last day of the retreat that Michael and Authur Baird, the originators of this technique, introduced us to the drum and Reiki Drumming.

I was blown away

Imagine a room full of people, I would guess around 80, in a room filled with Reiki Energy all beating on a drum. You would think it would have been overwhelming, noisy and chaotic but it wasn’t. It was vibrational, centering and balancing.

During our workshop session we split into pairs and we gave each other a 10 minute Reiki Drum session.

One person drummed and the other received. It was quite magical. Magical enough so that both Kate Cook, from Kate’s Reiki Essence, and I had to return to Sedona a day after the retreat ended to buy drums for our own use and Reiki practice.

Since bringing it home I have had several opportunities to use the drum during a Reiki Session with great results.

What is Reiki Drumming.

Reiki Drum

This is my drum. It is plain but it has a beautiful tone and vibration!

Drumming has been used since the beginning of time by Shamans, Medicine Men, Holy people and Healers. Sound is a vibration that carries itself deep into your body.

For Reiki Drumming, the Drum is infused with Reiki Energy prior to the session. The Reiki energy is focused and directed with every beat of the drum. The drum’s sound waves carry the high frequency Reiki Energy into the client’s energy field.

I am in the process of exploring this new technique but what I have experienced so far is that Reiki drumming is:

  • Like having a Reiki Massage on all your internal organs sending vibration deep within the recipient
  • Because of the repetive beats it helps the client become more internally focused and balanced.
  • Drumming can bring your brainwaves into an alpha state usually associated with mindfulness or meditation, which in turn can help reduce a depressive state of mind and increase creativity.
  • Drumming can help break up energetic blocks that may be stopping you from moving forward

 

Reiki Drumming during a Healing Session

Reiki Drumming is something that I will be incorporating into every one of my sessions, unless the client chooses not to. Since I have discovered this is a wonderful way to relax my client, and focus her on her healing path, each Reiki session will begin with 5-10 minutes of drumming and then I will proceed with a regular Reiki session..

The drum is beaten in a quick rhythm and the sound is focused all around the body, from head to toe. It can be done standing, sitting or during a Reiki Session laying comfortably on the Reiki table. By concentrating on the beat of the drum, it will help center and balance you, bringing you into a deeper state of relaxation which will all you to more openly accept the healing energy.
While receiving Reiki I suggest you focus on the issue you are trying to resolve, whether it is emotional or physical. A huge part of healing is being ready to release whatever it is that is causing your issue. Sometime we may not know what the root cause is but Reiki can and will bring it to your attention, either during the session or in the days that follow. But you must be ready to release it for healing to occur.

Reiki sessions are available in 30 minute or 60 minute increments. Additionally, once a month I hold Healing Nights which enable you to experience Reiki is a non hands-on, but not less effective way, in which I also start with Reiki Drumming. I think the Reiki Drum and the few minutes each participants receive this vibratory technique is probably the favorite of the evening.

If you have attended a healing night and participated in the drum, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

Start your path of healing today,

Buffalo Drum - Remo 16"

Reiki Drum - Remo
This is the drum I used. It may not be the prettiest, the coolest looking. It doesn’t have a fancy leather skin or a cool native American painting on it, but oh what a sound. I got to pick out mine in person and had all those wonderful choices. I really wanted a painted head but once I heard the deep vibration of this drum I knew it was the one I wanted.

Lessons learned. Life is always teaching us.

Lessons learned. Life is always teaching us.

Just when you think “I got this” the universe steps in and continues to teach you lessons. I am on my last full day of a long  2 1/2 week vacation.

There were two special events that this trip encompassed, a Reiki Retreat in Sedona Az and the wedding of my Nephew in Central California.

The retreat that I went with friend and Reiki Master Kate Cook from Kate’s Reiki Essential, was absolutely amazing. Was it the highlight of my year? No, because my life is full of amazing moments but it was up there in the top 5!  We learned more wonderful Reiki Techniques, bonded closer as friends, made new friends, ate healthy and healed.

It was hard to return to everyday life after such a spiritual, loving time but we did it.

The rest of the trip was filled with more family and friends. I got to see beloved family members that I hadn’t seen in years who filled my belly with home cooked meals and filled my heart with love.

Family is so important. We are blood. We don’t often agree, sometimes we don’t even like each other but we are still blood. Many years ago we had some ugliness in the family, nasty words were spoken, anger was felt towards me. It was a difficult time in my life but somehow my heart was soften, I forgave and with that all the past ugliness was forgotten. That made my soul happy.

Forgiveness is so necessary for a clear heart.

The biggest lesson I learned was that I was happy. I may not have a fancy house, I may not have a lot of money, I may not have a fancy ride but I have a life. I have a passion. I have a supportive husband, I have Reiki, I have pottery.

I have peace and that is all I need.

Tomorrow I board a plane for my journey home and I am excited.

I love my life.
