Cutting the Tie – Saying Goodbye to Alcohol

There is a book, I haven’t read it but know of it, called Cutting the Ties That Bind by Phyllis Krystal. I bring this up because for decades, freeing ourselves of the false security, the shadow of dependency on another person, thing or condition is a common malady brought to therapists who help others let go…

My Alcohol Addiction – My Story Now.

As I look back on different blogs where I share my thoughts and feelings on my journey of life, as well as thoughts and feelings on my journey as first a Student, then Practitioner, then Master/Advanced Practitioner of Reiki – I notice that within each blog I’m sharing exactly where I’m at – what aspect…

Reiki – Level 3A – Master Level

With Michael’s daughter Patricia, we took our Level 3A Master Level together.  This was a special day as Patricia and I have taken Reiki Level 1 and 2 together. Erica, our Reiki Master facilitated the day. I entered the space with much doubt and wonder on many levels – mostly of what should a spiritual…

Reiki – Back In Halifax But Then Back Into The World

I was very excited for the first of two Reiki treatments with my Reiki Master here in Halifax. Living in Qatar feels so very far away from the healing energy of Halifax.  Yet, in Doha, I have my Reiki room in our villa, I swap Reiki treatments almost weekly with another Reiki Practitioner who lives…

Reiki Share

I’m very fortunate that recently I’ve met a woman in my compound who is also a Reiki Practitioner! She now joins me here in my Reiki Room for regular sessions of Reiki Share! As well, she has inspired me to practice distance healing too.  Her name is Lisa, a fellow Canadian and a few years…

Emotional & Energetic Safety at Work

Safety is a topic I return to as I work the layers of it within myself.  I am revisiting safety now as I am back to work.  I work within a large school, with lots of different people.  As I interact with others on a daily basis, energetically I find myself absorbing other’s stresses that…

Home

After 6 weeks in Canada, I’m now home in Qatar. Home. This summer I felt homeless because Michael and I didn’t have our own space.  Our own place where we could retreat to to recharge, refresh and exhale.  While we’ve been fortunate enough to rent space that has felt like a home, it didn’t have…

Manifestation and Prosperity

I have bounced all over the place over the years – from job to job, relationships, interests and hobbies.  Never really long enough to bring prosperity and manifestation with people, places and things…for a variety of reasons. Slowly I’ve started to find my way to settle into some things and started manifesting prosperity.  This looks…

Give Up Feeling Safe

This morning as I wrote in my journal on Day 17 of the 21 Day Reiki Cleanse I had a clear moment of how my ability to relax into my day depended on whether or not the people in my life were either upset with me or happy with me.  If I had upset people…

Observe Instead of Attach

It is 11:58pm – and after a two hour drive from Stephenville to Port aux Basque, a seven hour ferry ride across the Gulf of St. Lawrence then a four hour drive from North Sydney to Eastern Passage we arrived at our AirBnB! Reiki is helping me in such soft, gentle ways…small steps…..and today my…

Thoughts on Surrender

Recently I’ve taken my Level I Reiki Attunement and have now stepped into becoming a student of Reiki.  I’m on the road traveling right now and decided I wanted to start a blog about my journey through my first Reiki cleanse and then my experiences as a student of Reiki.  Just to share a few…
