Greetings from Mother Earth

After my morning shower/Reiki call in I sat on the bed and grounded. My original intention was to contact Archangel Zadkiel as I did yesterday morning, to continue and better document a conversation we were having, but when I grounded I felt mother earth come through me so strongly that I pursued that. I immediately … Continue reading

On Letting Go of Past Pain

There is a past relationship that sometimes makes me swell with anger and hurt. We split over ten years ago, and the pain doesn’t dominate my life like it once did, but on those occasions when it does come it’s like being caught in the tide, with a breaker rolling over me – it’s overwhelming. … Continue reading

Everyday Gratitude

Before I made a conscious decision to more spiritually balance my life, gratitude was something that was reserved for times when I was on the receiving end of wonderfully fulfilled expectations or when I experienced great “luck”, while ingratitude was freely given for anything less than ideal or spectacular. Examples are listed in the following … Continue reading

The Power of Self Forgiveness

Is anyone more critical of us than ourselves? As we pass through life we can amass a collection of unattained goals, missed opportunities, judgement errors regrettable actions we took or didn’t take, and other failings.

The time frame corresponded to the gap between my Reiki II and Reiki Master workshops. I’m sure I was still compartmentalizing Reiki at the time. The first position I went for wasn’t a good match … Continue reading

The Gift of Time, Delivered in an Unusual Way

While progressing through Reiki attunements, my technical writing work became less of a focus for me, but in an interesting and supportive way. Last October, just after Reiki level II, I was made redundant from a permanent position in a process tha was so protracted that I was basically paid to stay home and look for … Continue reading

Graduation Day

Just for today, I will be grateful. I have a three year old son who is full of beans. He’s on top of me the moment I walk in the door and we’re inseparable until I finally get him down for the night. Recently, we found a photograph in a drawer. The boy in the … Continue reading

The Monthly Cash Drought

Just for today I will not worry. Just for today I will be grateful. Between my monthly pay cheque and my partner’s bi-weekly one, there is a lean time of the month for us. We are in that period right now. Assembling all my change this morning, I had just enough for the commute in … Continue reading
