My Hope for Reiki and Our Healing Journey

I can’t believe it’s been two months since I last posted on my blog. My dear sister, Lynne, reminded me of this. I stayed with her while attending a Reiki in Hospitals Workshop in Philadelphia– more on that later – and became one of those people who tried to fly on the day after Hurricane Sandy came ashore. The power of this storm was immense. I have never felt anything like it. To say my life was disrupted a bit by spending three extra days away from home is an understatement. But that was nothing compared to what others are going through. My heart goes out to those who are still working to regain some sense of normalcy in their lives. But can any of us really say life will continue being as it’s always been? Just look at the evidence to the contrary. If you are reading this, it’s because you already understand this on some level and you too are probably experiencing significant change to your “normal”.

Back to that workshop, I garnered much valuable information there that will help me meet my goal of teaching Reiki to regular people, not just to those who’ve come to it by way of crisis. Reiki is one of the simplest forms of hands on healing. It’s us healers who complicate it or make it seem too “airy fairy” for a typical person who isn’t interested in those complexities. My hope is for ordinary people to become aware of the positive vibes you can give and receive just by placing your hands on someone with loving intent. Even the scientific studies show Reiki to have a positive contribution to a person’s feelings of well-being.

And here’s an exciting announcement for local folks. I’m stepping up into the organizer role for a local meetup group whose purpose is to learn about various forms of healing. Here’s a link to the group Our Healing Journey. Please feel free to join that group if you live in the Sarasota, Florida area.
