I believe that God is without a body, but is a consciousness of creating, of love, and has no race, religion, or gender, is kind and nurturing, and has no limitations. God belongs to no one religion or country, but is absolutely free of limitations. The only thing that comes to my mind is that God is perhaps the light of the moon, or a star, the light that illumines the darkness. God’s light resides in every living thing. ~Laurelle Gaia
If I had to sum up the overall difference between how I experienced my life before the stroke, and now I would say; that things that were nice concepts before feel like true realities now. While I used to THINK of gratitude in the past, now I FEEL gratitude in the very cells of my being, I use to THINK of the physical, mental and spiritual bodies. Now I intimately KNOW my physical body and that it is working to grow stronger. And I have really MET my mental and spiritual bodies too. I now know that my mental body needs to be discerning rather than judgmental in order to allow it to pursue its lifelong quest to learn more. I clearly feel that my spiritual body houses my attitude and that the basis of that attitude is my ability to express my gratefulness for everything that comes my way, which provides me with a basis for continuing true healing.
Each person must decide what type of experience is right for them. The online mass marketing approach to teaching Reiki and attuning people is just not for me. Reiki is much more than that to me, and I feel students deserve more than that. We help the students who come to our classes for training to have a deep and meaningful experience by creating a very special, sacred Reiki experience that will be a fond and loving memory forever. I simply am passionate about providing quality experiences for students.
When we begin our path of spiritual awakening we can encounter many beliefs, forms of dogma, tools, energetic experiences, etc. which can cause us to create patterns that limit our full awakening to Divine light.
ONE AREA OF OUR LIFE that often seems to present challenges is our “management” of time. Our ego can create a worry, which causes us to feel that there is not enough time in the day to accomplish all that we need to do. Or perhaps we allow ourselves to feel that we are so much busier than others that we know. We may impede our relationship with time by telling ourselves “I really want to do that, but I just do not have the time.”
by Laurelle Gaia & Michael Arthur Baird Many times we have said, “One of the most beautiful things about Reiki is that there is nothing extra, no tool, or substance needed to be able to help oneself and others heal.”
When I found Reiki in 1989, I unknowingly had been searching to fill a spiritual void. I was not consciously aware of the fact that I had a deep longing to feel worthy of love. Did I carry this with me into this life, or did it develop because of experiences in this incarnation? I am not certain, but I do know that Reiki helped me fill that empty space in my heart. www.reikiclasses.com
