I’m often asked about giving Reiki to children or if you can safely attune them.
Don’t be daft – of course you can!
And the more you connect with children, the more they’ll teach you about energy, insight, intuition, trust and yourself!
Children are simply little people and often far more connected to The One Energy than us biggies!
They still have a direct link, they’re literally plugged into it.
You try keeping up with a toddler all day!!!
It’s like going into a restaurant and all the children can eat are fish fingers, burgers or sausages!
As if they can’t eat normal food…
Whatever happened to just a half the adult portion of normal food?
They have teeth and taste buds too
There is nothing to do differently for children when you apply Reiki.
Apart from catch them… ha ha ha!
Children and animals…
Use your intelligence and intuition and simply adapt your strategy
For example – wait for a child to fall asleep and then sit quietly and hold their feet.
Babies especially love that
Or just beam some Reiki across the playground or bedroom…
And it can help you to connect deeply with your children too.
Reiki is often referred to as loving energy and loving your child is essential for a good relationship and happy, healthy offspring.
We may not always like what they’re doing but we still love ’em nonetheless.
You see, children of any age need rules, boundaries and discipline.
Contrary to popular belief in today’s free for all society.
It makes them feel safe and cared for.
As a parent you’re the leader. As a leader you set the ground rules. Then they all know where they stand.
At different stages of childhood they’ll naturally push against the boundaries and start to ‘cross the lines drawn’.
And this is healthy behaviour not bad… it’s natural.
As they begin to push, you begin to stretch the boundaries to encompass and accommodate to their new found individuality.
But now you come into the grey areas
If you find yourself in conflict and getting angry – then that’s simply because they won’t do what YOU want.
This can be seen in the terrible two’s stage and also in teenagers.
But in all cases of conflict, you need to be sure of yourself.
What a week! Wet then dry then wet again! The poor holiday makers who’ve come this far north will be wishing they’d stayed ‘down south’
Life’s like that too.
Busy, busy one day, then feet up and relax the next One day feeling energetic and creative and the next, knackered and hard to get motivated!
One day sunny and cheerful, the next glum
So what’s to do to keep yourself on an even keel, so to speak?
Well, I don’t believe what the doctors say about the sun being bad for you.
Grab the rays when you can!
Especially if, as it is here on the Scotland/England border, you don’t exactly get an overdose of it!
It feels good to get some sun on your crown chakra and simply absorb the goodness.
Okay, Let’s move on.
Energy shifts and changes have been happening very markedly since the new-year chimed in and many are experiencing both mental and physical challenges.
Lots of people are finding the change and shift in energy a little overwhelming and the clear outs depressing.
Whether these are physical as in colds and chesty conditions or emotional pick-me-ups after a breakdown or relationship split.
So I thought I’d answer a depressing question for you …
Clearing out stuff is definitely on my mind at the moment. Both literally and symbolically! (And a mountain of washing to do!)
During my recent spring cleaning I came across this again, so thought I’d share it with you
Food for thought…
A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite.
He told the group to help themselves to the coffee.
When all the students had a cup of coffee in their hands, the professor said:
“If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones”.
“While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that’s the source of your problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it’s just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.
“What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups . . . and then you began eyeing each other’s cups”.
“Now consider this…
Mornin’ all, rise and shine!
I’ve been thinking about how Springtime affects us and I thought about FORGIVENESS.
Springtime suggests to me, forgiveness, letting go, moving on and actually living life to the full!
Forgiveness is de-cluttering your emotional baggage compartment, so to speak!
This could be the rise of the Spring energy.
The spurt of new growth, the desire to join in with life again – proactive creation!
Because Springtime’s all about rebirth, regeneration, renewal…
But it’s hard to be happy, youthful and full of vigor if you’re carrying a load of rubbish around inside – be that emotional or literal.
I’ve mentioned shifts and changes in the energy, clearing out the rubbish and releasing old hurts, people and situations before…
But sometimes it’s a lot easier said, than done
Forgiveness is the most effective way to let go though.
Forgiveness is a kindness you do for yourself.
By forgiving others, for what you’ve perceived they’ve done, you can let go.
For truly, whatever they ‘did’, it’s only your perception of it, that has hurt you.
Whatever it was they did, created an experience for you, which then generated your ‘interpretation’ of the event.
But by using Reiki you can go back and change your perception of what happened and release the pain or hurt.
By using Reiki, you can face your past experiences with a renewed confidence and detachment. From this newer perspective you see the greater overall view, the larger picture and how others may have been feeling or their motives.
Then you can use your Reiki to forgive them.
Because you’ve seen how they’ve struggled with their own emotions of jealousy, anger, hatred, powerlessness, or whatever…
Isn’t Spring energy wonderful!
I love it
The optimism combined with joyous expectation
You can achieve anything if you harness this fabulous energy and go with your flow
Now, I want to show you how to heal the world.
And to do that – I must show you how to heal yourself first.
For to heal the world, first heal the man – YOU
Ever wondered how that can be?
Because there is only one..!
There is only One Energy..!
There is only one of us in the room!
By focusing solely on yourself, by trusting implicitly your nature, by trusting implicitly your spirit – you will expand exponentially to touch and change the lives of everyone you meet…
Simply by being you.
The very best you, you can be.
And I don’t mean pretending to be a false you, the one you think others will like…
