Peace Symbol

I’m going to talk about the peace symbol which I was attuned to by my Teacher.

Students studying the traditional Usui Reiki method aren’t usually attuned to the peace symbol as it was channelled by a Reiki Master from the Karuna Reiki® lineage named Pat Courtney.

My teacher and Reiki Master Geneva Robins deeply resonates with this symbol and I’m thankful she felt it was important to attune her students to it.

Reiki symbols are the keys to connect to higher levels of healing by a Reiki practitioner.

The Peace symbol calms heavy emotions like worries, stress, and fears.

I use this symbol to create a feeling of peace and harmony within my client.

I will invoke the peace symbol together with the mental emotional symbol as they compliment each other nicely.

I’ve witnessed many people awaken to their present potential through an open and honest look into their past and a clear intention to change, elevate and grow.

This work is powerful and I’m grateful.

Distant Healing Symbol

The distant healing symbol allows practitioners to send Reiki anywhere in the world. This means the practitioner and patient do not need to be physically present for the energy to flow where it is needed.

In my experience a distance session can be just as powerful as an in-person Reiki session.

The distant healing symbol has many uses, I have used this symbol to send Reiki to past life events on myself and others.

One of the most powerful Reiki sessions I’ve experienced involved me going back to an event in my childhood.

I was able to see myself as a sweet innocent girl, and I stayed with her during that really terrible moment.
That session allowed me to forgive those who had caused me pain, but most importantly I was able to forgive myself for all the years that I had carried so much shame and anger.
I felt a sense of relief because I had been holding onto it for so long.
That Reiki session allowed me to reframe that experience through eyes of compassion and understanding.

I feel every situation has the ability to be a learning experience, Sometimes we just need an open heart, a clear intention and a little help to work through it.

Mental Emotional Reiki Symbol

The second Reiki symbol represents mental-emotional healing, harmony and balance.
Practitioners may use this symbol during treatments for addiction or depression in order to restore the body’s balance.
It may also be used to help people recover from past physical or emotional trauma or to unblock creative energies.

I use this symbol to first uncover and release emotions which lie behind mental, emotional and physical issues.
It helps us get to the root of our problems, insecurities, fears, and imbalances.
Only then we can truly study our deep selves.

These realizations aren’t always easy, but once an understanding of past patterning is known, we have the ability to reprogram the mind with positive responses and habits.

I draw this symbol over the heart with the intention to soften into pain, allowing space for a deeper understanding and wisdom to flow through.

The mental emotional symbol assists in creating balance, peace and harmony and helps with issues such as anxiety, stress, fear, low mood and depression.

The Power Symbol

I have decided to write a series on the different Reiki symbols.

The first one that I’m going to talk about is the power symbol. This was the first symbol I was attuned to.

The power symbol translated means: “Place the power of the universe here.”

This symbol can be used any time during a treatment.

I use it at the beginning of a session to start the flow of Reiki energy and I use it to close the session and seal off the Reiki energies.

The power symbol increases the ability to channel the energy and focus it if needed.

It can amplify the power of any other Reiki symbol.

The power symbol can remove any blockages or residual energies and cleanse the place on which it’s drawn.

It can be drawn on each chakra as a way of protecting your energy if you are going to be in a heavily populated area or in a space that feels draining in any way.

I used to work with the public on a daily basis and I’d excuse myself to go to the rest room where I would recharge by grounding myself and setting a clear intention of how I wanted to feel.

After my intention was set, I’d bring in the Reiki symbols and end with drawing a big power symbol over my entire body.

I also draw it on my clients feet for additional grounding durina session.

Life as I know it.

Like most people, my life has slowed down considerably.

Within the last month, the things that kept me busy all of a sudden weren’t here anymore.

My gym shut down, my place of business closed which lessened my workload substantially.

The life I had envisioned suddenly changed.

Slowing down felt nice for a bit, but like a lot of people I started to crave a sense of balance.

For me there’s power in routine e.g., Eating healthy, being active, and having a daily meditation practice.

If I’m not consistent in these areas, I feel off.

For the past few weeks I have felt heavy and unbalanced, I felt like there was nowhere to run, and to be honest I don’t want to anymore.

I’m sick of being held back by this inner dialogue that says I’m not smart enough, or attractive enough, young enough or whatever other bullshit the ego comes up with

I had the most beautiful distance Reiki session today with the very talented and wise @melemlyn

She reminded me of my inner strength, courage and resourcefulness.

I’ve gained much clarity and insight through the practice of going inward and being attuned to this powerful energy of Reiki.

It doesn’t surprise me that today’s session helped me to feel aligned, grounded and clear.

If I want to change and evolve it’s important to be honest about how I’m showing up for myself.

Right now more than ever i’m paying attention to my body and any emotions that move through it.

My Purpose My practice

I spent this past weekend in Vancouver for a retreat hosted by Lululemon called “Purpose and Practice”.

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it.

My intention was to be open no matter what.

I knew this weekend would be powerful but I didn’t expect it to be completely life changing

Im writing about my experience while it’s still fresh because I’m riding this new state of expansion and I want to share my insights.

Without going into all the details of the weekend, I wanted to talk about the inward journey I experienced.

I haven’t opened up to many people about this, but I have been struggling with my body image my whole adult life.

I’ve been so hard on myself especially when I’ve gained a few pounds or I’ve seen an unflattering picture.

I could receive all the compliments in the world but my inner dialogue would still sound something like this

“I hate my arms/ass/legs they’re huge.”

“I’m at the gym every day, how do I still have cellulite”

“I’m going to get fat”.

“I am fat.”

These are just a few examples.

These kinds of thoughts and emotions would become louder when I was dating or if I felt hurt by another persons actions.

About a year ago it became too much.

I held these feelings inside for too long and they were deeply affecting every aspect of my life.

I was cancelling dinner dates and staying home because I didn’t want to overeat.

Counting carbs and calories, and depriving myself of certain foods, then overindulging and beating myself up for it.

I was attaching my self worth to the way I felt about my body.

Something needed to change.

I only shared this with a select few people in my life because I felt like a failure.

Opening up was like shining a light on this dark thing, and I’m thankful I asked for help.

I started to gain insight around my triggers.

Sometimes they look like me scrolling through my phone while having dinner or eating so quickly that I don’t even really taste it

My healing process around food started long before this past weekend, but the retreat was the perfect place to explore my default habits that I go to when I’m feeling sad vulnerable, lonely or angry.

The 1st morning I ate breakfast in silence without my phone nearby and nothing to keep me occupied.

It was just me, my mindful attention and a plate of food.

I actually really enjoyed that meal.

It felt good to eat slowly.

My body felt nourished and I didn’t need to go for seconds because I was satisfied.

The mantra that I’m keeping top of mind is “Release self doubt, invite self love.

The past doesn’t define me, in fact I’m thankful for the lessons because they brought me clarity on the mental dysfunctions that have been holding me back and keeping me small.

I can see it with compassion and wisdom, and maybe I can help another who is going through something similar.

This retreat connected me with so many other brave humans that were also willing to change and they made it feel safe to be myself.

Another limiting belief I’ve held is if I actually allowed someone to see the amount of emotion I have, sadness, passion and anger they’d leave.

This weekend showed me, that when I’m 100% authentically myself with someone it gives them permission to show up in the same way if they choose it.

And what a gift that is.

I was chosen to stand on a stage in front of 200 people to speak about my Dharma and how I want to show up in every moment.

With my heart racing, drenched in sweat

I stood up there and spoke to all those people.

I can’t even fully remember what I said

It was terrifying

Exhilarating

And it felt wonderful

I’ve never felt so empowered

This weekend brought me back to what is important.

What Lululemon and their amazing Facilitators did was create an elevated space where each person had the opportunity be liberated if they chose it.

I got back to the basics

I was able to slow down in Meditation

I gained clarity in that stillness

Each day was a gift and I was thankful for the beautiful practice of yoga and the strong mindful movements I took.

It was an opportunity to take time for myself.

To write from my heart.

To release the thoughts and beliefs that haven’t been serving me and to celebrate my contributions to humanity.

I’m clear on who I am and how I want to show up in each moment.

I am awake.

I am open.

And I’m willing to change.

I am lit up by my life’s purpose as a healer and writer and what ever else is in the pipeline for me.

I choose to treat myself and others with respect and compassion.

Turned on

To this moment

A soft sensuality

Within me

To this song on repeat

Air filling my lungs

To my best friends laughter

The intimacy of my space

To a clear intention

To many of them

These healing hands

To the understanding of pain

And its sweet release

To the kindness in a stranger

To a Real

Genuine

Connection

To eyes wide open

This Innate intelligence

I’m so aware of

This powerful presence

I’m turned on

To the universe

And all it’s unknowns

To my path

And all it’s signs

To my life’s purpose 💚
