Guest post by author E.Dee Conrad – Channeling

Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 2 of the Virtual Blog Tour for A New Dawn Awaits by author E.Dee Conrad. I have been fortunate to receive an advance copy of her book, and it is a fascinating read that I recommend to everyone looking for some insight! There’s something there to ponder on each page, and at times I felt that the book was speaking directly to me as I was reading!

A New Dawn Awaits is a compassionate and inspiring channelled collection of short inspirational reflections, bringing together wisdom of the ages, showing us how to access knowledge that has been part of our consciousness, but has been dormant, for eons. E.Dee’s intention in writing this book is to help readers reach inwards into their divine essence and outwards to the energy that connects us as one humanity.

Yesterday, E.Dee visited Suzie Cheel’s blog .

For today’s stop on the tour, I thought it would be interesting to interview E.Dee on the topic of how she got started channeling and the main message of her book.

* * * * *

Alice: How did you get started channeling, and how did you know that what you were receiving was separate from your own conscious thought?

E.Dee: I first became interested in channeling because I wanted to be a medical intuitive. I thought it would be a great way to help people and to give back to society. Over time, I was steered towards writing a book instead!

I know something is a conscious thought by how it “feels”. When I channel, I don’t hear a voice. Rather, I “feel” the imprint of words in my brain that I then translate into actual words – almost like telepathy. If it is a conscious thought, i.e., one from my logical mind, it has a very different sensation than one that is channeled. A channeled thought has kind of an airy/floating feeling. Having said this, if I am emotionally (usually fear) involved in whatever it is I am trying to channel on, it is hard for me to be sure I am not just talking to myself!

Alice: How did you refine your ability to channel?

E.Dee: Practice, practice, practice. I also began meditating on a quasi-regular basis. For me, the calmer and more still my mind is, the clearer I “hear” or feel the words.

Alice: What do you hope people will come away with after reading your book, A New Dawn Awaits?

E.Dee: Sometimes when I was writing my book I would wonder if “they” were talking directly to me and if the whole book was just one really long message for me because “they” would say things the way I needed to hear them so the point would really sink in. For example, throughout my book you will see phrases like “This is important”, “This is a key point”, or “We are repeating this to make sure you understand”.

I feel the main message is you can transform yourself and help all of humanity by doing two simple things: meditate and be aware of your thoughts. You don’t have to meditate every day – 10 minutes every few days is enough in the beginning. There are no random thoughts. Every thought you have goes into the Universal Consciousness and affects everyone else. When you become aware of your thoughts, the negative ones will automatically decrease and the positive ones will increase. You don’t have to be perfect and remove all negative thoughts – all you have to do is try to become aware and that is enough to shift your perspective.

If this sounds like too much to do, I will take a quote from my book: “If you remember nothing else in this book, remember this: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you; think of others as you would have them think of you.”

Learning from Lily Dale

Last Saturday, I went with my friend Ernie to visit Lily Dale, NY, a community of mediums and energy healers in New York, about 2 hours’ drive from home. I found lots to learn from the experience, and I am glad to share it with you here.

Before we went, we decided to book a couple of appointments for a reading with one of the mediums there. Not knowing who to choose, we looked through the list on the website and clicked on various websites that some of the mediums have. It was a hard choice and Ernie emailed me his top choices, then I made some choices, and we decided on one and called her. She had two appointments available late in the day, so I booked the earlier one. Then Ernie called her and booked the one after mine.

I didn’t want to get home too late, and so after thinking it over, I called Ernie and asked him if he thought we might cancel the later appointment and take our chances finding a different medium who has an appointment earlier in the day so we could get back at a reasonable hour. Plus I thought it would be cool if we could experience readings from two different people. Ernie agreed and canceled the later appointment. I tried calling another medium on the list of our choices but she didn’t return my call. We decided to take our chances and that the Universe would sort it out once we got there. We went.

To our surprise, the Sci Fi Channel was there with the Ghost Hunters and so the city was packed with people. As we walked up and down the streets looking at quaint houses next to rundown houses with for rent signs, we looked for anyone with an open appointment. There was nothing available. I started getting anxious. I started beating myself up, saying that I never should have canceled that appointment, that we went all that way there and I wouldn’t get a reading (since canceling the appointment was my idea I wanted Ernie to have the reading that was scheduled), and Ernie tried to keep up with my stream of words with reassurance and telling me to stop worrying.

I started worrying that I couldn’t follow my intuition, that how was I supposed to know what to do, that I didn’t know what guidance to follow – should I have selected this medium? Should I have made the appointment? Should I have canceled it? Should I be looking for some other signs? It was pretty frustrating. Ernie told me to relax. I was on a tangent of doubt. I went to the bathroom.

While Ernie waited for me to get out of the bathroom, a random person walked up to him and said that right outside the gates, a little way down the road, there was a Fellowship Hall where student mediums and some of the mediums from Lily Dale were giving 10 minute readings for $10 as a fundraiser for their medium training program. Ernie told me this when I got out of the bathroom. He said “Here’s the sign you wanted.” I was encouraged.

Ernie and I ate the lunches we had packed together at a picnic table. We talked about our lives and talked about our dreams.

Before we decided to walk up to the Fellowship Hall, we went to Inspiration Stump, where people gather and mediums come before the crowd and select people there to give messages to. It was packed, and we stood in the back. The weather was gorgeous and the sunlight was perfectly streaming through the trees. A medium was introduced and got up in front of the crowd. She gave some names of departed people and asked if anyone recognized the names and some characteristics she named. Someone did. She gave a message of encouragement to that person and thanked everyone. Ernie and I stayed for a few more mediums doing their thing. One guy was pretty specific and told one person that she would be moving to New York and meet a friend there who she should not marry, but should remain friends with him. Another medium came up and had a strong presence, getting the crowd to say “Good Afternoon” to her very assertively. She was fun to watch. Her name was Jessie. Jessie did a similar thing to the other medium, and passed a message to someone in the crowd that her mother was watching and cautioning her not to take on too much, not to say yes to every request that comes her way. Ernie and I decided to go walk to the Fellowship Hall, so we left at that point.

When we got to Fellowship Hall, we each bought a ticket for a 10 minute reading. Then we were instructed to wait until the hostess seated us with one who was available. Medium students and certified mediums were seated in rows of chairs facing people they were talking with in the big room. We sat at a table and chatted, and Ernie reminded me to just be in the moment and stop regretting having canceled that other reading. I was called to sit with a medium, and to my surprise it was Jessie from the Inspiration Stump. She is one of the certified mediums of Lily Dale. Jessie said a brief nondenominational prayer and then told me that a gentleman in very old fashioned clothing was standing with her, an ancestor of mine, looking as he had in a picture. I couldn’t think of who it might be, but was ok with that. She said that lots of forward movement was happening for me, and it was important for me to stay organized and delegate when I needed help. I thanked her for this advice. She also said that my husband would find a job in two weeks to two months’ time, and he would feel much lighter and happier about that. I thanked her for this also. She also said that I need to remember to laugh often and keep my creativity and sense of humor going daily, and meditate daily to hear my guidance. I know that all of these are important. I liked the reading. I thought it was great that I got a reading, and that it was less money than I had been prepared to spend (always a good thing!).

Ernie had his reading, and he liked it also. When we walked outside, there was a little craft and gem fair outside so we walked through it and each purchased a healing stone and chatted with the vendors. Then we walked back to Lily Dale for Ernie to have his reading with the medium we had scheduled with.

You probably noticed that I have not mentioned her name. There is a reason for this. You’ll understand why in a minute.

So we found the little house of our person, and we went in. I saw that she had not filled the appointment in the space we had canceled, right after Ernie’s appointment. So when she came out, I asked her if she could read for both of us as originally planned. She said she could, and I was glad. I had a moment when I was again feeling unsure if this was the right thing or not, since we had made, canceled, and then I had had another reading. Should I ask or let it be? I knew that I had spent the whole day so far doubting myself and wondering what I should be doing – an uncomfortable feeling, and then I also knew that despite my spinning thoughts, I had so far received exactly what I had wanted. Funny. In any case, the medium said I should go first and she took me into her room.

She put on a tape recorder to record the session and said a brief prayer like Jessie had done. Then she asked me about if my grandparents were living and I told her that one is. She said my grandparents on my dad’s side were with us. I never met them because they died when my dad was an adolescent. She said that my grandmother was referring to a bracelet of some kind, and did I find that familiar? I did not. She said that it was silver and had a charm dangling from it. I still had no idea – I don’t have anything like that. She said no matter, it might be something I would find and buy in the future. She then said that my grandparents I had never met wanted to tell me they love me and that they would like to be remembered. Ok. Then she asked me about my mom’s parents. I told her that my grandfather had passed over. She asked if he died when I was young and I said no, it was 6 years ago. She said he was mentioning two children, did I have two children? I said I have four. She said he only knew my two oldest? I said he was particularly attached to my son (#3), who was a baby when he died. She said hm he isn’t referring to that one. Then she talked about my kids and their personalities, but the qualities seemed to be matched to the wrong kids. I gently interrupted and asked her about my career and if she could get any guidance for me on my career path or my home life in the near future. She asked me what I do. I told her I teach Reiki. She said this isn’t going to be my job, that there are LOTS of Reiki teachers out there and it isn’t a lucrative career. She looked at my necklace and asked me if I make jewelry. I said I was going to be soon offering energy-charged stones on a necklace, and she said I should do that – make jewelry – because that would be a better business for me than teaching Reiki. I said that it is my life and my heart to teach Reiki, and I dearly want to be doing this. She said it’s always my choice to do this but she sees of all the possibilities for me out there, this one has a very remote chance of success. But if I’m bound and determined to succeed, I might be able to do that. Maybe. I was upset. My time was up. I paid her and held back tears as I went into the waiting room. She called Ernie in for his reading.

I spent the next half hour alone in her waiting room, beating myself up again and fuming about this reading, which I hated. I wanted to throw the tape she gave me in the nearest trash can. I knew I shouldn’t have had this reading, that I should have been happy with the gift the Universe had given to me of a good reading for less money than I had anticipated, and we would have been able to leave earlier, which I had wanted. I questioned my intuition, and asked why I could only see things in hindsight, as what I SHOULD have done, instead of feeling confident about what decisions I’m making in the moment. I wondered if I should ask for my money back from the reading, which had only upset me. I know I need to be teaching Reiki, that this is what makes me truly happy, and that this gift of being able to help people learn and offer healing energy is something that I need to share. I decided to only tell the medium how I felt and give her back the tape, which I really did not want to keep.

When she came out with Ernie, she started to say goodbye to us and I said that I wanted to return the tape, that I felt the reading really didn’t resonate with me and I was sorry. She grew immediately angry and said that she knew she had a strong connection, and she nearly threw my money back into my hands, took the tape, and slammed the door. I stood there holding my money, and Ernie looked at me rather stunned at what had just happened. We left.

So here’s what I learned from the Lily Dale experience:

  • Not all mediums resonate with every person. (Later, watching the HBO documentary “No One Dies in Lily Dale” I saw this was true for some of the people in the film.)
  • I ended up getting everything I had wanted. I had (one) good reading. I didn’t end up spending a lot of money (smh), I experienced what Lily Dale is like on a gorgeous day with my friend Ernie who is a really good guy. I had a chance to take a road trip and spend the day doing something really different from my regular routine. (Mucho thanks to my wonderful husband, Evan, who managed all four kids by himself for the day so I could go.)
  • Intuition may not always be there to tell you what to do at any given moment of the day. Maybe the point is to just make a decision and go with it, being open to what happens next and trusting that it is all as it should be. Worrying about what to do next takes a lot of fun out of the experience, which is happening anyway. That in itself is a powerful lesson. It’s likely the most important lesson of the day and one I will try to remember and apply daily.
  • I am going to follow my heart and good things will happen. I don’t need to be told that I am doing the right or wrong thing. My experiences tell me when I am making choices that make sense. Since the trip, I have started moving forward with planning a slew of local classes and a new Energy Healing Certification Program, and new students and interest are coming in quickly, following the energy of my efforts. (I will be offering this by distance also – stay tuned for official info in the next couple weeks!) I have lots to do (and need to stay organized – thanks, Jessie,) and I have trust that this will be only the beginning of great things. I also made some necklaces from the healing stones and put them on my website. (I was going to do this anyway but I got it done.)

So in retrospect, I learned lots from my trip to Lily Dale. Maybe I’ll visit again sometime. If so, I will go with an appointment with a medium already set (and choose from a more informed perspective). A note: I did not mention the medium’s name because I know that her readings might be great for other people, so my experience should not taint her future business in any way. Even though I think she was not at her best in the way she responded to me at the end, I know that we are not all at our best, and don’t want to cause her to lose business by giving her a bad review and sharing her name.

Thanks for reading!

Oh, and I invite you all to my next Reiki Talk broadcast on blogtalk radio on Sunday, August 1, from 10-11 pm EST, where I am excited to be featuring my friends and colleagues Ming and Candy of to talk about Reiki for pets. If you can’t make the show live, a replay will be available for download or online playback immediately after the show.

This week, a door unexpectedly closed on one of my writing jobs. The experience (rather unpleasant unfortunately) left me wondering what it all meant. I’ve decided to take it as a sign that I need to be concentrating more on building my energy work practice – getting the word out more, helping more people, teaching and promoting energy healing, and focusing my intention on these goals.

My Herkimer Diamond healing crystal came, and I got the same swirly buzz from this one as I had from the one at Sarah Weiss’ house. So I sat down and meditated for 30 minutes, focusing exclusively on envisioning my ideal day, and was surrounded by a joyful feeling inspired by the image. I felt happiness and gratitude, and there was no worry or stress. It was nice. I will do this more.

I’m grateful, too, for several recent requests for channeled readings and healing that have led to lovely exchanges – crystals, artwork, and one person who is knitting me a gorgeous shawl! I cherish all opportunities to help people, and the obvious value that they place on my teaching is validating and fulfilling.

I have received the Lightarian AngelLinks attunements, and am feeling a stronger connection with the Archangels in this set of attunements. The connection I have now is helping to validate my feelings about the direction I want to go with my endeavors. I would love to pass the attunements on to anyone who wishes to receive them. Because this energy is an official licensed system, if you want the attunements I will need to order the manual (which comes via snail mail!) for you from the Lightarian Institute. The price of the manual is $34, and there are 5 attunements. I will do each attunement for $13 each. That makes the entire package $99. This is less than what I paid for them, and much less than the going rate. I just want to be able to pass along attunements at a rate which is affordable. I’ll set up a link on the right, but until I do, please email me if you’re interested or have questions. Anyone who receives these attunements from me will be able to: pass the attunements to others as a licensed facilitator, and have his or her name listed on the Lightarian Institute’s website.

When one door closes, another opens. And I’m interested in making this door the one I proceed through.

Going with it…Worry-free

Things went differently than I expected at my session with Sarah Weiss. It was a powerful healing session with lots of clearing. I held a very powerful healing crystal called a Herkimer Diamond (not really a diamond-diamond but that’s what it’s called). For the first time I actually felt healing from holding a crystal so this was a new development for me. I really felt swirling energy sweeping through each chakra from the top down while I held it. I’m getting one of those! I bid on one on Ebay today!

In any case, I learned that my first and second chakras were rather blocked. This is due to worrying about money, work and time. Basically – worry in general. I do tend to worry and have trouble staying in the moment, always thinking about what I need to do next. Sarah worked with me on getting into my “place of abundance” (think “Happy Place” 😀 ) and there being worry-free. In fact, I noticed that when I’m feeling surrounded by energy, as when I call in energy for healing work, there is no room for worry – the thoughts of worry just won’t come in. Nice. So I’ll be working on that, and working with more crystals as well.

But as far as the Light Journey Training goes, because I can’t make the sessions due to prior teaching committments through the school year, I can’t take this training. So we’re going to work on one-on-one monthly sessions for self healing and intuitive development. Probably similar stuff will be learned. At some point when the time fits right I will probably take a class with her. For now, I do have work to do and things will continue to develop. I’m also in a transition again, which I can feel – kind of muted energy sensations rather than strong when I channel Reiki.

I spent today all day giving Reiki to my son Eli, who has a bronchial cough and fever. He has been feeling pretty awful. Finally got the Tylenol to catch up to him so he’s just now feeling a little better. Plus,we’re grateful to friends on Twitter and Facebook who sent him additional healing energy throughout the day. Evan and Rayna also gave him Reiki. When a mom feels helpless that her child is sick and suffering, it’s nice that something else can be done to help. That’s why I love Reiki.

I had my first Lightarian AngelLinks attunement, and will be scheduling the next one tomorrow and continuing. There are 5 total. I look forward to offering them here, and will be doing so soon.

I’m grateful for the new requests for channeled readings and attunements that have come in the last week. Bringing new healing modalities to people is such a blessing. I love the idea that people I attune go and attune others, and they attune people, and everyone is channeling healing energy, increasing the amount of healing energy throughout the world. It’s a beautiful thought.

So I continue to develop new and stronger links to light, angels and guidance. May that happen for you too. Peace.

Into the Light in 2009

2009 is right around the corner – starting at midnight actually! And I’m wishing everyone a great one, with success, enlightenment, and great joy.

I’ve seen “light” coming at me as a theme lately and so I’m blogging about it today. I’m talking about some energetic developments, new attunements, and learning that I’m beginning now.

I just received the manual for the Lightarian AngelLinks attunement series, and I’m going to schedule the first attunement for some time this week. I’ve been reading it, and it feels like this could be a profound growing and connecting experience. I’m looking forward to the attunements very much. I’ll post on how they feel to me, and also I’ll be able to pass them on, so stay tuned for that. The first one is called Seraph Rose Aura. Click on the link above to learn more. Because this is the “licensed” version from the Lightarian Institute, let’s just say this attunement series wasn’t cheap. But it felt important to me and I pondered it for quite a while before signing up. (I’ll try to offer them back at a discount.)

Also, I mentioned in my last post that this Friday I start learning with Sarah Weiss. Her course, which I hope to take one on one with her is called Light Journey Training. As I’ve been learning more about angels, guides and channeling, I feel that connection with “light beings” such as these are an important part of my learning.

This has represented another shift in my perception of reality. When I began learning about Reiki, I didn’t know about this level of awareness. I wouldn’t have really believed there was more to life than what I had already experienced in terms of spirituality. Actually experiencing physical experiences of the flow of energy changed that for me. It also helped me approach learning about angels and guides with an open mind. Reiki opened up a door that just keeps letting in more light. Hence the theme for today’s blog post!

Stay tuned!

Moving Forward, Moving Upward

First, I would like to express big thanks to Jane Arnell, who graciously offered, designed and gifted me the most beautiful, perfect and fitting header to my blog that I could ever have imagined. Such wonderful talent and generosity is a true blessing. And she’s a cool person too so click on her name and check her out!

I’m excited at the progress of my upcoming website as eight amazing spiritual people are collaborating to create this resource on alternative health education and energy healing, spiritual and intuitive development, and more! Stay tuned!

Over to the right you’ll see new links for attunements to Guardian Angel Reiki and Tachyon Source. Guardian Angel Reiki connects you with your own guardian angel who will be with you always assisting with healings and providing guidance when asked. I’ve found it quite powerful for myself and those whom I have attuned. Guardian Angel Reiki attunements will be $25.

Tachyon Source is an attunement for those who already have Tachyon energy attunement. It enables you to create a permanently charged Tachyon Source object which will in turn charge all it touches and is near with Tachyon energy. Tachyon energy converts into life force energy. Life force energy provides healing, balance, wellness and positivity. It is the energy of Reiki. Tachyon Source attunements will be $18, and you must already be attuned to Tachyon energy to receive this attunement.

I am grateful to all who have given me the opportunity to practice and hone my abilities at channeling. I am now receiving requests for channeling in exchange for a donation afterward. The donation is open to your discretion as far as amount, and other forms of exchange are fine as well (i.e. crystals, energy healing, attunements, readings, artwork, etc. Just email me if you would like to offer an exchange of this sort when you ask your question.) Donations can be sent to my paypal address, and please do so after I give you your channeled answer. What is a channeled reading? Simply, you email me a question – something you are wondering about your life – and I connect with your energy and ask your guidance to help me write you an answer. Then I email you what I’ve received. The question can include a bit of explanation so I can be specific with your guides. If you ask me “What will my future hold?” I will probably receive a general answer in response. The more specific the question, the clearer the response. I also sometimes get additional information, which I will always pass along to you as well.

I wish everyone holiday light and blessings this season, and a year of abundance for 2009.

Happy Anniversary!!

Today is my birthday, and the 1st anniversary of the day I began this Reiki Awakening blog. So much has happened in the last year and it’s been an amazing journey so far. I’m continuously inspired by the blessings Reiki has brought me and the way Reiki has opened the door to new states of awareness and growth in all areas of my life. I know there is more to come and I’m very excited about it all.

I started this blog because I was so inspired by the way Reiki had opened my eyes, and that inspired feeling just grows and grows. Click here for the link to my first post.

I have new experiences on a daily basis that show me more ways that Reiki can work. For instance, the other day a friend in the Netherlands and I exchanged Reiki at the same exact time, both sending and receiving. We felt the energy start and stop at exactly the same time.

And another friend asked for Reiki because she was feeling sick. I sent immediately, and 20 minutes later she sent me a thank you because she felt so much better. I’m thankful that I have a way to help someone, even if that person is across the world from me (as many are). I know I’m just the channel, but the fact that I can be a channel of loving, healing energy is my inspiration.

I started out knowing nothing about energy and now I’ve attuned around a hundred people to Reiki and feel unbelievably blessed that I bring this amazing experience to others. Being involved in the DHN has given me ongoing opportunities to channel Reiki to people who have requested it. I’m finding ways to get in closer contact with guides and angels, and have had success in channeling messages for people who are seeking answers from their own guidance.

I’ve met amazing people all over the world who work with Reiki and many other forms of intuition, and I’ve learned from them and continue to do so. I’m profoundly grateful.

My family has joined me in learning and experiencing Reiki and it’s become part of our daily lives, enriching it for the better on many levels.

This has been an amazing year.

So as I celebrate another year of life, I have humongous amounts of wonderful things to celebrate. Thank you to all of you for being here with me.

Angels and Light

Well, today was my second weekly Energy Day. I’ve decided to make Mondays my Energy Day – a day as completely as possible devoted to Reiki, learning, meditation, and rejeuvination. So what did I do today?

The day started with receiving an attunement to Full Spectrum Light energy. This is an Ole Gabrielsen founded attunement, and it was a very pleasant tingly-hands way to begin Energy Day. I can’t think of anything more fitting. I can also pass this attunement on to others, if interested. It helps greatly with balance and energy regeneration. Email me for details.

During the week, I also received an attunement to Guardian Angel Reiki. This is an energy attunement which connects you with a Guardian Angel of your own, and enables you to call upon this angel of light to help you with healing, help you find clarity and connect with your higher guidance. Today, I had the opportunity to pass this attunement to Connie Dohan, my Chios teacher and mentor, who works with angels on a daily basis. I felt the presences around me as I channeled the attunement, through sensations in my eyelids, third eye chakra, and energy tingles in my hands. She reported a powerful experience receiving the attunement. I can also pass this attunement to others who are interested. I’ll be adding it to those I offer. For now, please email me if you’re interested in receiving it.

I also sent two Kundalini Reiki attunements and caught up on channelings – I did four! It feels good to be connected with energy and to be able to hear messages that help people get clarity on their questions. I’ve received tremendously positive feedback on the free channelings I’ve done so far and it’s been a validating experience. Reminder – the offer for free channeled readings is good through December 20! Afterwards, I will do channeled readings on a donation basis. You ask me a question, I’ll channel a reading for you, and you make whatever donation you feel is appropriate based on what you’re guided to do. I won’t turn anyone down and I’m also open to exchanges of non-monetary value.

I’m also very excited about January 2 because that’s the day I begin independent study with Medical Intuitive Sarah Weiss in Light Journey Training. She did an amazing reading for me (over the phone) and solved a medical issue I had been having for two years by finding the exact vertebrae in my spine that needed adjustment and sent me to a chiropractor. He confirmed it with an X-Ray, adjusted it, and I’m all better now. The rushes of energy I’ve felt during sessions with her have been astounding to me. Learning from her is sure to help me make great strides in my energetic development. I’m going to her house to learn from her one on one in person. (Thanks to my mom and mother-in-law for the birthday gift that is making this beginning possible!)

Lastly I am simply grateful for good friends and inspiring people who I’ve met on Twitter, Facebook, through this blog, and on forums. These people are all part of my awakening journey in energy healing, Reiki, intuitive awareness, and connections with guidance, angels, and Archangels. I’d like to give shout-outs of most grateful thanks and love to: Connie, Cher, Tamu, Merita, Frank, Naomi, Tasha, Tamar, and all attunees and those who allowed me to channel guidance to their questions.

Emerging into the Light


First, I’m feeling better from my Spiritual Upgrade I wrote about last week. Funny how I know it’s over – I do feel lighter and more clear-headed. Also, when I drive, the yellow line in the middle of the road has a big blue aura around it – lol! I notice that and realize I’m seeing something energetic and that’s another clue!

Meanwhile – I am meeting some amazing people on Twitter, and if you’re there, check out the list of people I’m following. I would dearly love to sit down with the lot of them and talk for about a month about Reiki and energy healing, positive thinking, and all of the energetic arts. There are many inspiring people there. Stop by and follow along!

And, I have a BIG IDEA that I’m starting to build into reality. I’m awfully excited about it. I bought a website domain – – and I’ve started inviting some of the most amazing people I’ve met and had excellent experiences with to gather together with me on this project. It’s going to be a resource of information on many sorts of energy related things – Reiki, auras, angels, chakras, channeling, psychic connection, intuition, and more. The people I’ve invited are experts, and the real deal. What the page will be is a place for people to come and read some articles about the various topics, and link to the people who are experts on them. I envision classes, discounts for different combinations of services, a place for Q&A, a blog, and fantastic energy. I’ll keep you posted on the developments!

Meanwhile, thank you to those who have signed up so far for my holiday special and welcome to anyone else who wants to join in before Dec. 20!

I’ve been getting good experience and feedback with channeling and it’s always a learning and growing opportunity for all involved.

Blessings all around.

Under Construction

The last couple of days I’ve been feeling rather out of touch. My senses seem dulled, and my sensations while channeling Reiki have not been as strong as usual. The Reiki’s been working, but the way I’ve been sensing the “tingles and heat” is subdued.

I have learned that we go through these periods of “spiritual upgradeduring which our senses shut down for a period, leaving us feeling sort of dense like I do right now. So I’m just taking a break of sorts, and not doing any big attunements, meditation, or channeling until the fog clears. It’s like I’m “under construction.”

It was a year ago when I had my Reiki 2 attunement that changed my life completely. Amazing how much has happened in a year.

I may be going on a spiritual retreat Dec. 20-21 with Sarah Weiss. I’ve emailed her to ask if this is the kind of retreat that will help me learn more about intuitive healing the way she does it, or if it’s not designed for that. If it isn’t, I may not go, because I don’t want to be frustrated wishing I could be learning what I’m interested in. I’ll keep you posted. Dec. 20 is also my birthday (and the day I began this blog a year ago!) so it’s a pretty significant weekend.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and lots of good food, good family time, and a nice break.
