Earth Energy and Reality Therapy

Kind of funny…

I’ve been enjoying short meditations outside in the back yard, connected to the earth by sitting, laying or standing in my bare feet. I wrote a couple days ago about seeing white sparkles afterward, and that has happened again since then. So I’m pretty enthused about this earth healing stuff.

Well, I had a stomach upset and had read some of Warren Grossman’s Handbook for Healers, which I had ordered from his website. It advised that lying on one’s front on the earth is healing, while lying on one’s back is for clearing out negative energy. So I gave it a try – I lay down on my front on the ground in my back yard. The ground was cool, the grass was a little itchy against my face, and the earth was a little uneven but I persisted. Eventually it was relaxing and my stomach pains faded. I got up, because one of my kids needed my attention, and I was walking when I had a cold feeling on my arm. It was a slug.

There’s the reality side to Earth healing. I wonder if it’s okay to use a blanket…

Chios Level 3

Last night I was attuned to Chios Healing level 3. I have a new manual and workbook with exercises to learn, and this attunement is supposed to greatly strengthen my ability to “see” the energy and energetic issues. I am feeling very positive about working to develop this part of my senses.

I also have been able, since my last post, to tune in to see my daughters Sari and Rayna’s auras. Rayna’s is yellow-green, and Sari’s is pure yellow. I’m not surprised in either case, as the colors really match their personalities well. Both are highly creative, passionate, and Rayna has a compassionate nature as well. I’m going to try to see my son, Eli’s aura later today or over the weekend.

I had a interesting job interview yesterday for a very different sort of opportunity that could stretch me in a new direction, but also allow me to work at home, be creative, and do a little bit of travel too. I’ll know in the next two weeks if the job will be offered to me, but it seems likely. The job would start in May. I’ll post more specifics when I have an actual offer. Regardless, I will keep up this blog, which has become an important part of my learning and growth process, and of course, keep working on energy healing as well.

Peace, Love & Light

I’m Seeing the Difference – or Not Really SEEING.

This weekend, I’ve had some nice time to myself to work on studying and practicing learning Chios Healing. I have to say that I’m finding it much harder than Reiki.

Reiki came naturally to me, and it doesn’t require any special exercises or abilities. (Maybe that’s why it came naturally to me- ha ha ha). I was attuned, and I could immediately feel the difference, channel energy, and benefit from doing self-treatments and sending Reiki. This is especially true for me in terms of Reiki level two. The night I was attuned to Reiki two, I sent a distance Reiki treatment for the first time, and I could feel it working. My Reiki intuitive sense has been developing naturally, through practice, and the people who request Reiki of me feel and benefit from the energy I send them. About 98% of the people I’ve sent distance Reiki to have felt it when I sent it, and have reported how much better they feel. I’ve been confident enough and grateful enough for the ability to do this to become a volunteer with the Distance Healing Network. I continued and took the Reiki Master Teacher level course. And, I started this blog out of being inspired by the way Reiki has changed my life for the better.

Chios Healing is different. I feel like I am missing something I should have. Maybe I’m not a visual person by nature. Maybe that is required, or else a person has to work to develop it. I’m the type of person who has to work, I guess. Because being attuned didn’t bring about the same changes in me that Reiki did. This isn’t automatic, or it seems, a natural method for me. I’m doing brain and eye “workouts” to try to develop the ability to see auras and visual impurities in the aura. I’m doing yoga breathing and looking at optical illusions to try to develop my “intuitive sense” that I seem to have in my hands but not in my eyes or mind’s eye. I am supposed to, according to the Chios level 2 manual, be able to look at a person, and get an intuitive sense of where their energy field is in need of adjusting due to leaks, tears, blockages, or low energy. I am not there. I’m trying too hard, I can’t hear my intuition, I can’t feel any information getting through. Even my hands, my greatest Reiki tools, are not performing well for me with Chios. When I use them, I can sense the location of the chakras, and get a sense of their activity. This is helpful for me to feel if one is less active (blocked maybe) than the others. But when I call the Chios, and use the symbols (another visualizing/internalizing procedure), I’m not sure about the feel of the energy in or leaving my hands. And the people I’ve been practicing on – my husband and oldest daughter, have reported that they feel “a little warm” but not much else. This feels for me like I’m a couch potato trying to work my body into shape to model bikinis. Can you sense my frustration? I was under the impression that since I’m comfortable with channeling energy with Reiki, that learning a different energy healing modality would be a natural extension of my energy healing technique, and be…well, easier to learn.

I’m not a person who quits if something is hard. I guess I’m just surprised that Chios Healing is so hard for me, even after being attuned. I’m feeling pretty thick, actually, like a brick, and I’m sure that feeling isn’t helping me open up either. I’m probably blocking my own learning, which is also frustrating. I thought that if I got my active mind out of the way, that my intuitive sense would be able to do this. But it isn’t “just happening” like Reiki did for me.

Okay, enough whining. I guess I have to do the exercises and start from scratch, as if I’m someone who has never worked with Universal Life Energy before. My teacher is trying to help me. She pointed me to websites for helping a person develop auric sight, and I am working the exercises diligently. She also emailed me more exercises, such as the yoga breathing ones, to help me get my right brain more open to hearing intuitive messages. She has sent me extra color attunements, which I felt happening, but I’m still stuck here like a person with no experience whatsoever. Wow what a rant I’m letting loose.

Advice for how to do this better is welcome.

Movin’ Right Along to Chios Level 2

Chios level 1 was a fine introduction to channeling energy, and because of my experience with Reiki, it was very comfortable for me. I completed the workbook and practice exercises, and was really ready for more of the heart of studying Chios.

Today, my Chios teacher attuned me to Chios level 2. The manual for this level is quite extensive, and the exercises, practices and meditations as well as the attunement itself, are all designed to help the practitioner develop visual sensitivity to color energy. Because I’m so accustomed to feeling the energy by changes in the sensations in my hands, it is a challenge. My teacher provided two websites with practice exercises for developing the ability to see aura colors, and the exercises seem progressive, and doable, with well-written descriptions. Here are the links, for anyone interested: and . Now I feel that I have lots to do and learn! I’ve embarked on the next phase of my journey of energy healing discovery and practice.

Anyone with insight (oops pun not intended!) or experience in developing this visual acuity to energy, I’d love to hear from you.

Meanwhile, I’m still open to sending Reiki to those who request it, without a fee. In a couple weeks, I will be looking for opportunities to send distance Chios Healing treatments, and so at that point please feel free to request Chios sessions if you’d like to try that modality.

When I complete my Chios Master level training, I may be switching to a different format for accepting distance energy healing requests, but I plan to take one request per night for distance Reiki/Chios sessions for free. Once my schedule fills up for those appointments, I’ll charge $20 per half-hour sessions for times scheduled during the day or at other times.

But for now, I’m still a grasshopper.

Colorful Reading

Last night I read Jane Struthers’ Working With Auras: Your Complete Guide to Health and Wellbeing from cover to cover. It is full of photographs and excellent examples, and is very easy to follow and inspirational. I’m making some progress in terms of training myself to see auras, because I can, when I try, catch the first bright white-blue layer around my head and hands. It flickers, and stops when I look directly, but I can do it more consistently now. I find that I have to be quire relaxed.

I also learned that objects (like chairs even!) have auras, which made me feel better after the first time when I thought I was seeing an illusion or a fuzzy out of focus outline that really was just my eyes and not real. It was there after all, what do you know?

I am hoping for the next step, seeing colors, to develop, and I’m also being patient. It’s encouraging that I’ve come this far, and the book really inspired me to keep trying.

When it feels right and things line up (including money – yes one needs to be practical), I will move forward with studying and getting attuned to Chios Healing, and this helps to develop the ability to see the energy colors more clearly. I read the first manual (available free online at and it is very complementary to Reiki, as is working with auras. I’m excited about this.

I do think I’m still adjusting (and may be for a while!) to the new Master level of Reiki, with some strange buzzing and vibrations going through me from time to time the last couple of days, so I’m taking my time, doing self treatments, and continuing to send Reiki as usual, to keep the energy flowing through me.

White Sparkles & Reiki Rules

Last night I sent Reiki to a person who sees white sparkling light when I send to him. It was the third time I’ve sent distance Reiki to him, and this time, when sending the energy, I saw white light behind my eyes, and had strong energetic sensations tingling on my face, and particularly my right eye (not sure why there). It was particularly cool. Maybe our energetic connection is increasing from repeated Reiki, or maybe my sensitivity is increasing. Reiki is always interesting!

His feedback said that again he saw the same white light, and that his stomach ache, which he had when we started, got better during the session.

And, over the weekend, my daughter, Rayna, who is 8 and attuned to Reiki II, and I sent distance Reiki together to my friend who sends to us sometimes in the morning. I held Rayna’s hand and did the distance symbol, and we each concentrated our Reiki on a different part of our friend – Rayna did the knees, I did the head and chest. Our recipient had a bad cold and a sore knee, and we both felt the tingling and heat of the Reiki in our hands as we did the sending. It was a nice mother-daughter bonding experience for us too.

It was the first time that Rayna had experienced sending distance Reiki, and so I layed down some “Reiki Rules” for her. Reiki Rule #1: Never give or send Reiki energy without permission of the recipient. Reiki Rule #2: Only send distance Reiki from home. (That rule applies to Rayna because I don’t want her playing around with it at school. She should be concentrating on learning and playing with her friends there, and it might weird out or annoy her teacher if she is busy trying to send Reiki to someone. Plus, it lets me help her, so it puts the distance Reiki in a more structured, controlled environment). Rayna doesn’t know the distance symbol, but I taught her that if she focused her intent on sending the Reiki to a specific person, that it would go there. She was very accepting of the rules, so I feel good about this.

Becoming More Aware?

I had an interesting experience (funny how I always seem to be having interesting experiences with Reiki!!) the last few nights. I sent energy to a nice person who has been here visiting my blog, and requested Reiki. His feedback afterward indicated that he had seen white light behind his eyes during the time I sent him the Reiki. So we tried it again a few nights later, and he had the same experience, and remarked that those two times were the only times he had ever had such an experience. It was also the first time for me that someone I had sent distance Reiki had ever “seen” the energy inside his or her awareness. I am so grateful to him for letting me know what he felt.

Before I sent him Reiki the second time, I felt that I needed some Reiki, so I spent a few minutes giving myself Reiki. As I was doing so, I had a strange sensation that was new. I felt as if my third eye chakra was opening up, like a window. My forehead tingled, and even more, felt like…gee, it’s hard to describe, but it just felt like it was opening, like a lens from a camera that opens at the push of a button. It was different.

I’ve been concentrating on attempting to see energy. While I send Reiki, I look at my hands, slightly relaxed focus, looking above and beyond them. Often, I see some shimmer around them, whether translucent, or a little bluish, and it subsides when my focus changes or I blink. I’ve also been trying to see auras around people. I was told to relax focus and look slightly above the head of the person whose aura I’m trying to see. Today I did this while looking at the rabbi of my synagogue, because I was teaching Sunday School, and the students were all in the sanctuary for a morning service. We were supposed to be looking at the rabbi anyway, so I figured this was as good a time as any to practice. I really felt as if I saw a shimmer around her – not really a color – more see-thru, but it reminded me of looking above a grill when it’s really hot. That kind of shimmer. I might’ve also caught a glimpse of orange, but it could’ve been the wood behind her shimmering through the aura (if that’s what I was seeing).

I was holding my eyes slightly out of focus, (but was wearing my glasses), and so that could account for what looked like it might have been an aura. Or, maybe I’m starting to develop this awareness of energy.

I plan to keep trying.

Also, this afternoon I was very tired, so I rested for a short while. As I did, I felt a little tingly, as if someone was sending me Reiki. I know my Sunday Share group has me on their list, so it very well could’ve been from one of them. Also, for the first time, I saw a color behind my eyes, suddenly. It was hot pink. Don’t know if that has meaning, but it was different for me.

I also have been thinking that I would like to communicate with a Reiki guide. Sometimes I ask questions inside my head when I’m sending distance Reiki, and I feel an answer. I don’t ask big ones. I don’t even remember what I asked last time. But I wonder, is a Reiki guide with you all the time, or only when sending Reiki? Is this a presence that’s only able to communicate while doing Reiki, or anytime? Is this a guardian angel? Is this just my consciousness? I sometimes feel a little lonely about Reiki, because I’m alone when I channel energy, sitting in my living room. I don’t have the opportunity to do much hands-on Reiki, so most of the time, I’m alone. It might be nice to feel like someone is with me as support when I’m doing this.

My RMT believes, and always has, in angels. I’ve never experienced one, so I reserve my judgement, as usual, for something to which I can personally relate. I don’t have blind faith – I need to experience something to know it’s real. I have said that many times in this blog – it’s part of who I am.

It also is the reason I know Reiki is real. I feel tangible evidence, and the people I send Reiki to feel it and benefit from it. When I experience something, I know it’s real, and I can talk about it with confidence to others. I know I still have lots to learn, and I enjoy reading what others write about their experiences with Reiki.

I love Reiki.
