Reminder: Soon I will be using this blog minimally as a means of sharing reflections, news, classes etc. Instead I will send out a Newsletter 6 times a year via MailChimp. If you haven’t already done so, please use this link to subscribe. It is free.
Article: Enriching What You Love To Do
Do you find some days seem to nudge you just a little further, a little deeper, a little more meaningfully? Today, I once again picked up a book I brought with me on this trip to Ecuador. It’s called The Book On Karuna Reiki: Advanced Healing Energy for Our Evolving World. I first met the author, Laurelle Shanti Gaia, when I took the Karuna Reiki course that Laurel and her husband Michael taught in Sedona in 2014. As I read her words I see her image and hear her voice. She continues to be one of my teachers through her writing and CDs. Laurelle shares her gifts with warmth and total inclusiveness.
There is more to share about Laurelle. Within a year after the class I took, something totally unexpected append to Laurelle. She had a “stroke”. Actually a bleed as an aneurysm burst. She was unconscious for three weeks. Friends, colleagues and family sent Reiki and prayers. Her healing journey was one only Laurelle can tell and I hope she will someday share it in more depth. However I invite you to read her words about her newer perspective about the meaning of healing. Insightful and thought provoking. Here is the link to what she wrote.
Laurelle’s husband, Michael Baird, taught the Reiki Drumming course I took in Sedona in October 2016. He began the class with his story about how he learned to bring Reiki to Drumming. It was Laurelle who guided him to bring the two together for a stronger, more profound healing effect. Besides the healing experience of the two-day class, it also opened me to something new for me. Inside of me a voice kept telling me to help people bring Reiki to what they already love doing–just as Michael did with Drumming.
It was a small nudge at first and I could see the value of it. Little by little I have grown to accept the nudge and be open to how it could be possible.
I suppose you could say that this is the birthing of both the Newsletter I will send out six times a year, as well as the workshop for which I am almost ready to launch the beta test.
On that note, keep March 21 1 to 4 open to possibly attend. The information will be released soon. Only ten spots. Details will go out in the first Newsletter. So if you haven’t subscribed yet, here is another opportunity. Click on this link.
