Significant milestones in Reiki have recently transpired. Not only did I acquire my own official Reiki (Holy Fire lineage) MASTER certificate as of last week (along with the rest of my class, featured above), but Holy Fire itself reached another milestone.
My having “leveled-up” to Reiki master means that I now have two additional symbols with which to heal clients during sessions. I’ve already experienced, and so can testify firsthand to, the uniqueness of these symbols’ energies, compared to the energies of those core symbols with which I’ve been healing clients all along (each of which also has its own distinct feel — and all of which I will, of course, continue to work with as I add to my personal Reiki toolkit).
As of three weeks ago, Holy Fire II energy has been replaced with Holy Fire III. This divine energy descended from the heavens to ignite the healers working with it (I think of it as a software upgrade, myself). I am honored and grateful to have been a member of one of the first classes ever to have been imbued with this latest manifestation of Holy Fire.
The same tools and techniques that have been central to the Holy Fire lineage of Reiki healing will continue to be used — only with a different energy. The Grace of Forgiveness comes through more powerfully with Holy Fire III, and the focus of its healing is less on what is being released during healing, and more on what is being revealed as the masks of the culturally created self are peeled away from the Authentic Self.
I experienced some most beautiful experiences during last week’s Reiki intensive.
During our first class meditation, the River of Life Experience, I had some of my own, most deeply ingrained masks come to mind; masks that ultimately came from having been raised in a society that equates one’s worth with their career success. I was reminded that shifting my focus to the positive, with a lens of Gratitude for all that I am blessed to have — as opposed to focusing on the negative, which renders judgments and criticisms of all aspects of reality — is fundamental to peace and happiness. (It wasn’t a happy reminder during the healing, though. I cried like a child whose Band-Aid was being ripped off of my actual flesh.)
In hindsight, it would naturally be the case that class healings began with the recognition and removal of personal obstacles blocking that which needed to be revealed. Later, on the same day, during the placement of the master symbol of the Usui lineage of Reiki, I felt an incredible lightness — that is, weightlessness — as if I literally were floating on cloud nine.
And, by the last day of the class, that incredible lightness became even lighter, as if I were filled with Helium.

Are you one of those people who has “to get to just one more thing” – constantly?
How about needing to be on-the-go all the time out of habit? Well imagine what it would be like if you could just STOP.
Stop the busyness and bring in the ahhhhhhh…
Most of us spend our time running around doing, doing, doing.
And while sometimes that makes us feel productive, important and needed – it sure doesn’t help us to feel grounded, clear or calm.
Do You Ever Just Stop?
Does it ever occur to you to just stop? Even for a moment.
It’s interesting how stopping changes your perspective on what seems so urgent.
And what really is so urgent or critical that you can’t stop, take a deep breath and become present?
Let’s be honest. Gratefully, for most of us there are very few occasions in our day, when our habitual running is actually averting pure disaster.
And it goes without saying, that you’ll be considerably more focused and effective if you do stop for that deep breath.
Here’s How To Stop & Become Mindful
So the next time you find yourself rushing – use it as the perfect opportunity to become present and mindful by following these quick steps:
- STOP dead in your tracks.
- Take a deep breath.
- Really feelthat deep breath.
- Refocuson what’s in your field of vision.
- Groundyour feet.
- State to yourself aloud “I am present”.
- Smile.(very important step)
- Move onto your next task.
The more often you’re able to practice STOPPING, the better you’ll feel.
Pretty easy. Can’t hurt to give it a try.

Everywhere we look, there is so much information about how to improve, to be better, to change, to beat the competition. The other day, I was looking through a list of Women’s Empowerment books and the theme of having to ‘do more’ really stood out.
But what if you were actually perfect, just the way you are? What if there is nothing to add, just a few self-judgments to take away? When we were young children, we never doubted we were enough – that was a learned behavior; one we learned from society. We learned it from all the other people who also believe they are not enough, which they learned from the generations before them, and so it has gone, for far too long.
Here is a brief excerpt from the Galactic Council that they shared in a Transmission of Light. It is a message which reminds us of just how grand we already are.
“We wish for you to go back to the heart, back into that place of knowing self or maybe questioning self. You may call it either one. Go into that heart space and give yourself permission to be the wise, the grounded, the centered being that you truly are. In truth, you are these vast, wise, intelligent beings who have been crammed into these 3rd-dimensional bodies to have this physical experience. That is not who you are. That is a very small element of who you are. You are so much more than that, so much more wisdom, so much more light. It is time for that wisdom to take its next step of opening and awakening. That is not to say you forsake your precious body, rather honor all that you are, not just part of it.”
If we are busy judging self and feeling the need to be fixed or improve, we are not able to settle honestly and authentically into our innate wisdom. Maybe it is time to just ‘be enough exactly as you are’ and finally surrender to your vastness, beauty and wisdom.
The year 2018 has been a year of Mastery. It is not about being or doing more, rather it is about recognizing our innate worth, as humans and as divine cosmic beings. That spark or soul, housed in our human container is pure magic, yet we are so focused on the perceived flaws in the container, we completely miss the magic of the spark that gives us life.
A brief affirmation that you may find beneficial is “I surrender all that I think I am, I surrender all that I think I know, I surrender to my beauty, my wisdom and my worth. I am perfect, whole and complete exactly as I am”. Of course you are welcome to add other things to surrender, however, I recommend you keep it simple and manageable. The more often you repeat these words, the more you will give yourself permission to ‘be enough’.
I challenge you to practice repeating this affirmation multiple times each day and notice if you are able to be more loving and gentle with yourself and others.
If you are feeling ready to surrender all the baggage you have taken on from the world around you, and truly be ‘enough’, then it is time to join me in the Galactic Council Inner Circle, where you will be immersed in the love and wisdom of spirit.
When I was growing up, I remember observing my dad doing specific habits regularly. Praying, meditating while listening to music, and reading. At the time, I didn’t fully understand why this was a lifestyle for him. I do know that it stuck with me. When I had my own family, the reason became clear. It gave him clarity in his thinking, wisdom in his decisions, and strength to navigate his life.
Naturally we wake up each day and have responsibilities before us. We have deadlines, meetings, an agenda, and an array of events to attend to. We have people that depend on us and people that we depend on to make these things happen. Our bodies are being thrown in different directions and can bring physical exhaustion. Sleep and food are the daily necessities and remedy that we have to have to function and keep up with all this. Getting enough sleep and eating healthy are another whole conversation but are vitally important if our bodies are to function the way God intended them to.
What we fail to remember is that our “minds” need daily repair too. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. We don’t realize to what extent until we lose them.
How do we keep our minds working the way God designed them to? Strong and Healthy?
God gives us that answer in His word. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” Romans 12:12
Count our wins each day. Thank our Heavenly Father for the goodness in our life.
Pray for what or who is on our heart and minds that day.
Pick a scripture verse or devotion and meditate on it.
Trust Him with His plans for our family that day.
I can say without any hesitation that “Renewing my mind each day” has been the key to helping me navigate whatever comes my way in life. I can’t imagine going one day without it.
In this journey together to learn and live out our authentic self,
