I am back! I am so sorry I have been absent for the card of the week so many times this month. February has always been a busy month for our family. I am back & ready for another weekly card reading. 

This week we are using the Dreams of Gaia Tarot. 

The 8 of cups in this deck talks about finding peace and contentment with what you have! If you're not happy with what you have right now focusing on more of that will not propel you forward. Look at your life and see what things you can be grateful for! 

The figure in this card is in complete alignment with himself and his surroundings, it's through this alignment that he has found peace and happiness. How can you better align yourself? Is it time for some energy work? Some Shamanic Healing

This week is going to be a good week but only if we ourselves can focus on all the good we DO have in our lives! Not the things we believe are bad or are lacking. 

I'd love to know what you think of my new website? Pop on over and check it out!

I'd love for you to be apart of this course!

Hello fellow sea travelers, I am so sorry I missed last weeks card of the week. I live in Philadelphia and the eagles won the Superbowl and then I got sick. I am back though for another weekly card reading. This week we are using two decks in honor of Valentines day. The Everyday Witch Tarot & The Romance Angels Oracle deck.

The world card tells us that once we set our intention our wish will easily be granted, but first we need to get clear on what it is we want. I talk about this in my Soulful Healing E-Course (it's free join here) in order to manifest what we want in life we need to get crystal clear and begin to speak the language of the universe. That can only happen after we let go of the past and set our intentions for the future. The world is about a situation coming to it's highest point, it's apex. It's a great card for the week. 

Our Romance Angels have this to say:

No matter what we are trying to manifest, be that a committed relationship, more love in an existing relationship, or something else entirely. We can achieve our results a trillion times quicker if we come from a place of self love. I admit the concept of self love has me quite baffled sometimes; but in my experience we need to listen to what our heart and soul want. If something isn't working it doesn't do anyone any good to stick around and hope that it gets better, chances are it won't- that's enabling. So here's a question for you:

If you could do anything right now that your heart truly wants, without fear of reprisal or negative side effects what would you do? 

Chances are that's what is what you're supposed to be doing. Don't worry about making waves this week; do what you need to do. Set time aside for self-care, get a massage, get a manicure, or go out and do some shopping. If you don't love yourself how do you expect anyone else to love you? 

((I guess it's important to note that doesn't mean that you have to love the fact that you've gained 40 lbs since last year; or that you're getting older, it means that you have to love who you are at your core- your soul, your essence!))

One of the qualities that originally drew me to Reiki energy was that I could send Reiki across the globe to a friend in another country or my family in another state. I couldn't believe that this energy was able to do this so easily, as I read about online.

Reiki Distant Healing

It is through the use of Reiki symbols that we can send reiki healing energy to those that are not with us; or we can not physically touch; such as burn victims, or someone who is incredibly sick.

Reiki two and three uses a set of symbols which I talked about here.

Using the Cho Ku Rei &  the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol we can send Reiki literally anywhere; the past, present, and the future. We can call in the essence of someone who is not with us and give them a Reiki healing session.

Reiki Distant Attunements

It's through the widely known, and accepted concept, of giving distant reiki healing sessions for someone who is not physically present that we can also do distant attunements. Remember the thing that sets reiki apart from other energy healing modalities is the idea of an attunement or energetic calibration to the Reiki healing energy. Without an attunement you can NOT be a Reiki practitioner.

There is a lot of uproar and uncertainty about the ability to give distant reiki attunements. However, it's been my experience and the experience of my students that it can be done and this is why.

If we can call in the essence of someone for a Reiki healing session we can also call in the essence of someone, with the same process, for a distant attunement.

You literally can not have one without the other.

To believe that you can just do one and not the other does not make sense and invalidates the whole idea of distant energy healing sessions, which is pretty much the cornerstone of Reiki healing!

So here is why I believe so many teachers have an aversion to distant attunements:

  • It creates a disconnect between student and teacher therefore creating a chance for less accountability for student understanding of the material being taught.  
  • It lowers the price of learning Reiki, without overhead for a venue, travel, etc. prices are lowered therefore the teacher makes less money. Just like everything else Reiki has become an industry! Learning Reiki in person can cost anywhere from $50.00-3,000.00! YIKES!
  • Teachers are not willing to let Reiki grow, sure I was taught by a couple of my teachers that Reiki can only be taught in person; but any logical person who has spent time with this energy and has a brain that understands energy will know that time and space do not exist in Energy Medicine. You can't believe in distant energy healing without believing in distant attunements.

How distant attunements work:

I am not going to give the exact steps for distant attunements as that is taught in my Reiki 3 Course. Here are the basic steps for a distant attunement:
  • Find a proxy something that will take the place of the person you are attuning. This could be a pillow, a chair, a large stuffed animal, etc. 
  • Draw the required symbols for giving a distant healing. 
  • Call in the spirit or essense of the Reiki student.
  • Do a reiki attunement now as you would if the student were present. 
  • Close the energetic connection between you and the student.
  • Reach out to the student and let them know the attunement is complete. 

    It's really a simple but powerful process and no different than giving a distant Reiki healing session. 

    I hope this article has helped demystify the process of distant energy healing and distant attunements.
