Wishing you Joy, Gratitude, Forgiveness and Love for your highest good and the highest good of all.
Please enjoy your visit and come back soon, more pictures and words from the wise coming soon!

Since my teenage years I've been interested in metaphysics and life styles,that had more to them than 'The American Dream' of success. As a young mother, I wondered how to facilitate healing of children and friends. Occasionally, I wondered onto the correct path and used my intuition to help me but ONLY when the NEED was desperate and I could think of nothing else to do! Now after all these years I have the tools, Reiki attunement, and the knowledge to heal.
One must find the calm place within to access intuition and true nature.

Energy Therapy
(from Four Seasons Spa, Maui, Island Resort)
"A 2500 year old healing practice, rediscovered by the Japanese, means 'Universal Life force energy'. It is one of the more widely known forms of healing, through direct application of Ki. The term Ki is used by Japanese mystics and martial artists for the underlying force from which the Universe is comprised. It is believed that Reiki can relieve pain, boost the immune system and relieve acute problems. The Reiki practitioner uses their hands to channel energy from the universe to your body, to promote self-healing. Reiki is deeply relaxing and recharging at the same time.

The Five Objects of the Reiki Ryoho.(From Japan)

Tai (body) - Ken (health)
The body is the temple of our true Nature, our Holy Spirit. Knowing this, we should take care of it and worship in it. Ultimately, we will not be able to endure enlightenment without a healthy body.
We can make the body strong with Reiki, meditation, proper diet and ...laughter!

En (relation, fate, love, karma) - Bi (beauty)
"Beauty and Love go hand in hand. If you see the beauty in every being sentient or insentient, you are bound to live a peaceful and fulfilled life."

Kokoro (heart + mind) - Makoto (sincerity, authenticity)
Kokoro, the unity of heart and mind. The way to achieve this unity is by being our authentic (true) selves.

Sai (talent) - Chikara (power)
"Talent and power go together. When we follow our talent, the result is a power that no one can resist. There's no need to fear our own abilities!"

Tsutome (duty) - Do (work)
"Our Duty is to work on ourselves. In whatever we do, we should give the best we have. There's no need to hold back what we can give to others_and to ourselves."

My Own Words:

"Healing begins with Truth and Beauty is the end result.
We need to live our lives with Gratitude, Joy, Forgiveness and Love.
We need to change our habits for the Highest Good of All.
Always intend to be your True Self by connecting and listening to your True Nature.
Pay attention to your own Intention!
 True Self
   True Nature
     Universal Connection to All."

Reiki Source Sign

Reiki source sign

Draw with hand/finger to put Reiki on a situation, an object or yourself and others for healing. Always state your intent " For person's name highest good and the highest loving good of all."
Start with top line coming down (father), draw counterclockwise circle (mother), diamond inside the circle (spirit), and last 3 lines counterclockwise (within and without).

Below are some inspirational words that I find warrant rereading.

From Ethical Philosophies of India, speaking on the Upanisadic period of Spiritual Growth.

Laws and regulations are necessary for those men who do not naturally conform to the dictates of conscience.
But for those who have risen above their selfish egos, morality becomes the very condition of their being and law is fulfilled in love.

From Don Michael Ruiz, a Toltec wise man's formula.

"Be impeccable with your words.
Don't take anything personally.
Don't make assumptions.
Do your best."

FYI Background are wild fawn lilies growing in my garden, another GIFT!
