Is Reiki Right for you?

I’m often asked what Reiki is and how is it useful? Reiki is a clothes-on, hands-on gentle healing method for emotional and physical discomfort. It is not a religion or belief system. The touch is very light and respectful of the person’s body.

According to a report by the Univ. of Minnesota “Reiki is a complex process that engages many body systems, simultaneously or in quick succession, shifting the body from domination by the “fight or flight” (stress) response to the relaxation response, and supporting the body’s own healing mechanisms.”

In my own practice my clients have reported remarkable results for easing grief, relieving pain, and restoring energy.

Reiki can be used to:

  • Recover from grief
  • Balance the Chakras
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Relieve pain
  • Relax and reduce stress
  • Restore energy
  • Promote self-healing

I have found that there is a real benefit for people who are beginning to receive Reiki to sign up for three sessions within a two week period. The reason for this is that the Reiki energy has a chance to really set in and maintain a level of flow. After the initial three sessions the visits can be scheduled further apart.

Reiki compliments, but does not usually take the place of, medical care. It can ease the pain of a broken bone, but the broken bone still needs medical attention.

Using Numerology for a Job situation

A client with a 1 personal year wanted clarity about a job situation, which I address below.

Your personal year, based on your birthdate, is a 1 energy. In the Tarot the 1 energy is represented by 3 cards: the Magician 1 (manifesting something new), the Wheel of Fortune 10 (change), and the Sun 19 (rebirth). Together your birth energy and these cards suggest 2014 will be a good time for new beginnings and being able to manifest what you want to call into your life.

Your also have an abundance of 1’s from your birth numbers November which is an 11 and the day which is a 1. This 1 energy supports your personal year energy.

For your reading I pulled 4 cards representing a) what to release, b) how to release it, c) what to call in, d) what is your gift.

Your reading indicates that it’s time to release your focus on what you lack (R Knight of Earth) and to bring balance to your life by being patient and working with the higher power as well as the physical world (Temperance).

You are best served by creating a plan of action that takes you down the road of new career and opportunities. (Chariot) Have you been so focued on what you can’t/don’t have that you are losing the flexibility to see new options?

Finally, your gift at this time is about giving up your personal struggle. This card reenforces the first card to stop focusing on what you lack, but on what strengths you have. (R 5 Wands)

At first glance this reading may seem full of contraditions. On the one hand you are being told to give up your focus, on the other hand, you are looking at manifesting, which demands a certain level of focus and concentration.

What you are being asked to give up is the focus on lack. Manifesting should identify what to call into your life and how to work with your angels and guides to make it happen.

Manifest what you want by deciding what you want to create, for example, a job to enjoy which brings financial security. Then use the words of power as shown here.

Good luck, Diane, let me know how this works for you.

Does Reiki help with chronic conditions?

I’ve found the most effective method is to start with 3 sessions in a two week period and then gradually lengthening the time between sessions until a maintenance schedule can be determined.

By far, the best results for my clients have been for chronic fatigue. One client expressed it best, “After a Rieki session I feel more energy and ability to focus. I’m more sensitive to my body’s needs and now I make sure to not become too depleted before another session.”

Clients with fibromyalgia and arthritis have reported mixed results regarding the relief from pain. However, they describe a higher quality of energy and the ability to focus. While the pain may not subside, it seems to be more in the background than the foreground.

The bottom line is that Reiki can improve the quality of your life.

Make a Shift

Do you feel like something in your life needs to shift, but you don’t know what. Do you feel like the house is tumbling down and you’re dog-paddling just to keep up with your life?

For many of us, when we feel in danger, our instinct is to do something – anything – because we want to feel in control. Yet, if you incorrectly anticipate what the shift is, or where it will take you, you could end up under the tumbling house down.
Take a just a brief moment to pause and take a breath. Ask yourself if everything that you are doing in your life is essential to do at this time? What are the consequences if they are not done right now? Are there a few things you can put off today and take the time to regenerate? Is there someone who would be able to help out for the moment, even to just listen to you and give you a hug?

Now that you have created this moment, evaluate how YOU would like your life to shift rather than letting the universe determine the shift. State your intention for change, put your intention into the ethers, claim your intention and vision it becoming a reality. Expect some bumps, but stay on the journey.

Do I Come Out During a Family Celebration?

Dear Judyth,
I’ve recently moved to the West Coast and am in a fairly new and seemingly promising relationship. My conservative family is coming from the mid-West for the holidays and I don’t know what to do because I haven’t come out to them. I don’t want to ignore and hide my friend while my family is here, and I don’t want to ruin the holidays with my family. What do I do?
