Coming Around

I have some nice news… My mother-in-law, (who I’ve mentioned here before) has not had conclusive results the few times I’ve given her Reiki, (and thus has said repeatedly that Reiki “doesn’t work” for her, she doesn’t feel it, etc.). Well last night she was mentioning some muscular type pain in her legs and I offered her Reiki, said “couldn’t hurt” and she agreed. After a few minutes, I commented that my hands were tingling quite a lot, and she surprisedly exclaimed that her feet were too. Then, she said, “And you know what? The pain is completely gone!” She was quite surprised, and I was sooooo glad!! I guess patience and gentle persistence can pay off.

Also, when channeling Reiki lately, I’ve been more consciously asking that the angels and guides of the recipient be present and assist in the healing for this person. Whenever I’ve done so, I’ve felt much stronger energy sensations in my hands, and at times, saw golden lights/ shapes moving behind my closed eyelids. I would like to “see” more but perhaps this is a step in that direction. My hands are most sensitive to Reiki energy, but I want to be able to see more as well so I can learn to interpret the information coming through my hands.

I am planning to learn from Sarah Weiss ( at the nearest opportunity, which may be January. Her meditations on her website I know I mentioned before, but I really like them. I felt so her energetic work so strongly during our sessions that I am very drawn to learning her methods and becoming attuned to the energy as she is.

Meanwhile, I will continue to strengthen my receptors in working with the higher guidance as much as I can. Tomorrow night I’ll do my first Colors of Angels attunement. I have one more person wanting that attunement, which I’m doing for her next week. Afterward, once I have feedback that all is well, I will post and offer the attunement here. So stay tuned, friends!

Props and Plugs


Today I would like to help promote a few worthy resources for energy healers.

The first is my Chios teacher, Connie Dohan’s website, She is now, (besides teaching, offering readings, doing energy healing, and attunements), selling beautiful chakra jewelry. To the left of this text, please check out my necklace from Connie! I love the way the colors spread on my otherwise plain brown shirt! Radiant! I’ve received plenty of compliments and questions from those who have seen me wearing it, and I’ve had the opportunity to talk about chakras and Reiki. Love it! I also want to plug her website because next week, Connie is having a special on the chakra jewelry she is offering and an open house too, for those lucky enough to be in the Columbus, OH area on Sat., Nov. 1st. Connie is channeling readings for those who can make it that day. The jewelry alone is well worth a visit to the site and her place if you can make it.

Secondly, I simply love this website: . I could spend hours exploring it if I had hours to do that, I mean. But each time I go there, there’s something nice to see or click on. It’s really quite beautifully put together and worth a look.

Third, I’d like to introduce all interested to Sarah Weiss. She’s a medical intuitive, and all around amazing spiritual person. She has done two readings for me, over the phone, and every single thing she found has been spot-on exactly right and extremely specific. The energy rushes I’ve felt during the sessions have been far more profound and powerful than any Reiki session (and you all know how passionate I am about Reiki!) and she is simply the real thing. Her website offers free meditation mp3s and plenty of advice and guidance besides. She teaches classes and offers many types of supportive help. Sarah’s website is There is much to learn from Sarah.

Intuition and The Universe Lining Up

This morning I had an interesting experience. I was typing away at my computer, trying to get some work done while I could when I started to feel tingly – as if I was receiving Reiki. I had a quick flash of my friend, whom I had attuned to Usui Reiki level 2. So before stopping to think, I shot her off a quick email telling her the time and asking if she had just been sending me Reiki.
A couple hours later she replied a surprised “yes” answer. This is the first time I’ve been able to notice Reiki without knowing it was coming, and also intuit its source.

Today my husband and I discovered to our dismay that a large frame around one of our back room windows is rotting out. We called a few window companies to get estimates and left messages, worrying about the cost. I left and took the kids to the playground.
We had just gotten home from the playground when a little puppy with a collar came wandering into our yard. Seeing no owner about, I coaxed the puppy to come to me, and called the phone number on his collar. I left a message with my phone number and a few minutes later a thankful person called and was on the way to get the dog. When he came, we found out he is a handy man who moved a block away recently and he could replace and fix our window. He called us later with an estimate. I think we’ll hire him. Nice.

It seemed as if the universe just lined up right today.

Also –
I want to show you a new blog I like. I added the feed to my right hand column, but please check it out. It’s excellent – informative, thought provoking, and relevant to all things Reiki. I’ll be taking the Reiki 30 Day Challenge probably starting next week. Here it is: . Funny name, but way impressive. Check it out.

I’m so excited because next weekend I’m going on a Reiki Retreat!!!! From Saturday morning until 2 pm on Sunday, I’ll be in a beautiful environmental education retreat center, staying in a beautiful wildlife reserve, and sleeping in nice dorm-type rooms, sharing Reiki experiences, nature connection, and Reiki treatments with 14 Reiki people. The immersion and connecting with other Reiki people will be amazing – I know it! I’m so excited already! I’ll be getting more details about the schedule in a few days. I’ll keep you posted.

Doing the Time Warp

Well, as time sometimes will reveal the truth, I realized that some of the “answers” to my questions were not quite correct, at least not for the present time. Things didn’t turn out the way the answers I intuited during my meditative questioning had implied. (If you’re wondering what I am talking about, see my previous post).

When I asked Connie and Cher why, I found out that Spirits, guides, angels and ascended beings don’t live in the same time dimension as we do, and so they don’t always give answers that are valid for “right now” but their answers are still right. It may be necessary to wait for things to turn out that way, but their answers mean things will.

So I wait.

Funny though that one could argue that this is a great excuse. It’s true, just not yet. But I am making every attempt to avoid cynicism and accept this. The growth of my intuition depends on me letting go of cynical doubts and keeping an open mind. Another challenge.

But I can do it.

I am looking forward to the day I will post and say that all was true as time finally revealed.

There. How’s was that?

I’ve been trying to grow my intuitive abilities, with the help and advice of my Chios teacher, Connie, and my psychic intuitive friend Cher. (Gratitude shout out to you both!) Among the most important advice I’ve been getting is meditate, and also to ask for details from my guides and angels.

Meditating, as I was instructed, has been interesting. Cher told me to start off by studying the inside of my eyelids, and then focus on my third eye chakra. When doing this, I have felt connected to energy, and “saw” swirling colors and abstract shapes.

The other night when sending Reiki, I had questions in my mind, and I felt that I got answers to the questions. The next night, on Connie’s suggestion, I asked for more specific information – asking more specific details, and receiving more specific answers. To be clear, when I am channeling Reiki, I feel connected to the energy and to my intuitive higher self, and the answers seem to come.

But, this being new to me, I also feel confused by doubt. I know that I have a very strong imagination and these answers could be what I am imagining I want to hear. I used my pendulum to see if it confirmed the answers, and it did. (But I’m unable to measure my own subconscious input to the answers). Connie says to ask for proof, or something that will help me emphatically believe in the message I received. I don’t know what, though, would do this for me, so I haven’t been able to do this yet. Also, things in my life are suggesting that the message I received may not be true, which further confuses me. I’ll keep trying.

I would love to develop confidence in my ability to channel advice and messages from guides and angels. It would certainly be a wonderful dimension to my energy awareness, and I would be immensely grateful for being able to develop this. Any additional suggestions are always welcome.

I know I’m a person who has begun from scratch – from zero intuition or awareness to the point at which I am now – a Reiki Master and seeker. I’ve already come a long way. This is truly a journey and awakening.
