Reiki and the Daily Obstacle Course

Some days seem to be laid out in an obstacle course of hassles and distractions. You wake up with a clear idea of the BIG IMPORTANT THING you want to accomplish today, but you can’t find a matching pair of socks. You finally find the car keys under the sofa, but when you start the … Continue reading

Everybody’s Right

Everybody’s Right

One day when we were all rather bored in college, somebody came up with the idea of creating stories based on the cover of Cat Steven’s album “Tea for the Tillerman”. I don’t recall what those stories were, as we went around the room. I do recall that, after a quite detailed bit of fiction, … Continue reading

No Dumping

Emotional baggage is a peculiar thing. It is invisible to the naked eye, but it can feel so heavy when you carry it. I’ve let myself get weighed down under such baggage, and struggled in such a way as to attract attention to my load. And it does attract attention, usually in the form of … Continue reading

Helping Someone Help Themself

Have you ever tried to help someone who doesn’t seem able or willing to help themselves? Frustrating, isn’t it. You might see clearly what changes your friend could make to alleviate or completely remove their stress and emotional pain. But what they seem to want is for the world to change around them, to enable them … Continue reading

Changing the World

From childhood I took for granted that I interacted in the physical world with other people who believed likewise. I wasn’t particularly aware of that, nor did I articulate it consciously – it was just reality. The individuals who populated my corner of the world had more similarities than differences – it was a fairly … Continue reading

Healing a Post-Marriage Relationship

There’s a couple I know who divorced a few years ago, separated over ten years ago, and have several children together. They both have good relationships with their children.  The couple relate to each other by avoiding each other as much as possible. When they first split, there was a mixed ability to have reasonable … Continue reading

Taking a Few Moments

So, early this morning I’m in the shower calling in Reiki for the day. I start to hear the babies, awake and crying, impatient to be fed no doubt. It’s hard to tell whether it’s both twin boys or whether our 1 ½ year old daughter is in the mix. My partner is downstairs – … Continue reading

Newton’s Law of Politics

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Newton’s law is as good an explanation as any for what is going on in American politics these days.  With two months left to go, the red and the blue armies, the colors of this political civil war, are exaggerating, misrepresenting and just plain lying … Continue reading

Do You Want to be in Work Today?

I’m acclimating myself to a day job that is everything that the last one was not in so many ways, including the social culture. Even though there are several hundred people working out of a couple of buildings (or maybe because of it) there is an effort made to get people interacting on a social … Continue reading

Reiki and Calpol

Last Saturday my three year old son woke up unwell. He was listless, even his lips were pale, and there was vomiting.  We considered taking him to Kdoc, since our GP was gone for the weekend, but we thought we’d monitor him for a bit first before taking that step. When his tummy settled the … Continue reading
