Reiki Whispers, November, 2011

Breathwork is a term that is used for a variety of breathing techniques which can facilitate healing, meditation and expansion of consciousness. We have found that working with specific breathing patterns in Reiki healing sessions is beneficial and can deepen the level of healing the client receives. As Reiki works to reach blocked or stagnant energy, the breath helps to move emotional energy and helps to release unconscious resistance to healing. Conscious breathing helps us breathe through difficult feelings or even physical discomfort. The results can bring a wonderful sense of relief and a feeling of freedom. The breath techniques we teach vary according to the type of healing and the intention for the session.

Is attitude adding or distracting from our intentions?

by Laurelle Shanti Gaia I have been rather quiet for the last year. I experienced serious brain aneurysms in late July of 2015. Besides using the time to physically heal, I have been doing some deep soul searching to find my own answers to many questions. Before that experience I often taught Reiki students that healing and curing are two different things. Now I understand that statement in a whole new way. Curing might mean symptoms cease, yet healing may happen during illness when we are offered the opportunity to rest in silence. Silence provides the opportunity to delve deeply into our thoughts and examine the thoughts from many perspectives. Medical treatment when combined with the use of Reiki helps them function in a complementary fashion, contrasted with alternative treatment which might inadvertently indicate that one way is better than another. I always pray that Reiki which I channel be directed to the highest good. Not realizing that highest good may be cloaked within new perspectives. Or attitudes. Is attitude adding or distracting from our intentions? Positive attitude is more important than I even realized previously. Some say that if we have a positive attitude it is the same as denying reality. I feel it can help to create reality. I am so thankful that the doctors chose to say I had a 2 percent chance of survival rather than a 98 percent chance of something else. Perhaps illnesses are not truly hereditary. Maybe attitudes that contribute to illness are truly what IS hereditary. I hope all patients and medical personnel and all affected realize how powerful words and...

Reiki and the Key to Self Healing

By Laurelle Gaia It is with the help of the distant healing Reiki symbol (HNSHZN), I am able to connect back in time to an experience that proved to be one of my most powerful personal healings.  When I review the experience, it feels like a different life time rather than simply an earlier chapter of this life. During a time, which seems  to be an  ancient whisper within my consciousness, I was in my 30s, a devoted wife and mother, and a self-employed corporate business woman. I awoke early in one morning and realized that I was dreading the day ahead. I was feeling sluggish, and was avoiding even the thought of rising early and experiencing quiet moments before my family was awake. Those quiet moments had been so important to me; I was able to practice yoga, meditate and enjoy a quiet cup of tea. However, on this morning, I just wanted to close my eyes and pretend the world had disappeared. I felt as though I had become a “workaholic/momaholic” who lived by mine and other’s “expectations” of what a good mother, wife and business person should be. On that morning I forced myself to get out of bed, and began the routine of waking the family, insuring everyone had clean clothes, a healthy breakfast, homework and everything they needed to move through their day. Then off I went to my computer graphic business, to tend to project deadlines, staff, clients, and accountants. I was sitting at my desk, and began to stand up to retrieve a file from a cabinet across the room. To my...

Forgiveness – the Key to Creating a New YOU!

By Laurelle Gaia Everyone has moments from their past during which they have experienced emotional hurt, physical pain, or perhaps even guilt or shame. We know that we are holding onto these issues when we find ourselves, becoming angry easily, or feeling sad or depressed for no apparent reason. Even when the hurt is emotional in nature, we might still feel very definite physical pain in our body. Often this pain expresses itself in our back or the area of kidneys, pancreas, or liver. The physical pain is caused by cellular memory of the past trauma. It is possible to develop energetic “cords” to people from our past who hurt us, or whom we have hurt. Such cords are also created when we are emotionally connected to unpleasant situations. The most effective way to clear these cords is through forgiveness of oneself as well as others. Such cords deplete our energy, and if we are connected to another person, their energy is diminished as well. In order to regain our energy, complete forgiveness is so important. “When you forgive, you in no way change the past - but you sure do change the future.” Bernard Meltzer There is no better time than right NOW to allow yourself to completely forgive, release and let go of the past. It is through forgiveness that we are able to move forward into the future feeling light, free and ready to create a beautiful new way of being in the world. I have recorded a journey designed to help you gently, yet deeply release, heal, and let past hurts and concerns simply melt away...

Reiki – 2013 – What’s It All About?

2013 - What’s It All About? This year certainly has been a year of growth, shifting and change. One thing that we can be certain of is that we always have the opportunity to grow and heal. Those of us dedicated to spiritual growth often find solitude to be important, so that we are able to truly listen to the whispers of our soul. However, in addition to quiet moments, we also benefit from interacting with other people with similar ideals. We have the opportunity to join in community with those of like mind in many ways. Of course there is simply meeting your best friend and sharing conversation. We also have events like medicine wheel gatherings, new and full moon meditations, or drumming circles. For some people, coming together within a church, or volunteer group is helpful for spiritual growth. We offer opportunities for medicine wheel gatherings, meditations and healing classes at Crystal Enlightenment and at Peace Place-the Reiki Center…both in Sedona. In Sedona the Creative Life Center is also available for wonderful spiritual, healing, and self improvement events. I feel that at the end of 2012 into the first part of 2013, we were inspired to be more introspective, soul searchers.  Now, as we move into the end  of 2013 and look toward 2014, we are being called out into community to share with one another. Whether it is just with one friend, in a small group gathering or class, or a large event; it is time for us all to emerge as the stronger, wiser and healthier people we have become. Through introspection and growth we...

A Healing Miracle at Peace Place

A Spontaneous Healing for a 12 Year-Old by Tianna Galgano I love to vacation in Sedona, Arizona.  The spiritual intensity in the power spots help me to connect with Spirit in expanded ways. When possible, I take one of my grandchildren on vacation with me. We hike into power spots and I teach my grandchild how to use the energy to have expanded meditation experiences.  I have done this each year with a granddaughter as young as five and several other grandsons that were in their teens. I taught my granddaughter how to meditate when she was five years old. It was then that she first met her guardian angel. When she was twelve, I intuited that it was time for my granddaughter to meet her Higher Self. I wanted to teach her how to ask for spiritual guidance directly from her source self. She and I took a special vacation together and shared a week in Sedona. While there, we visited a different power spot every day. In her meditations, she met different types of guides in the various power spots. These included a power animal and a “teacher” guide to help her study for tests. I mentioned that at some point she would be ready to interact with her Higher Self. After several days of amazing experiences, she told me that she was ready to meet her Higher Self. I wanted to get her a special crystal to enhance that experience.  So I took her to one of my favorite crystal stores, Peace Place, the Reiki Center in uptown Sedona.  My granddaughter’s major intuitive sense is kinesthetic....

How to Create Reiki Miracles in 4 Easy Steps

by Laurelle Shanti Gaia  What is a Miracle? When you think about the word miracle, what comes to your mind? When I think about miracles, especially in the context of a “Reiki miracle” I immediately think of a result of prayer, which has been energized with Reiki, and left, undisturbed, as an offering upon the “altar” within the heart and mind of God. Reiki can help you learn to release attachment to outcomes, to others and to things. It can help you trust that all things happen for the highest good. Miracles manifest when there are no attachments, or expectations. To create a miracle it is important to release attachments to and expectations of yourself, others, and the results of your prayers. Release opens you to experience the manifestation of your prayers in ways that are much grander than you may have imagined. Divine Love, which resides within the heart and mind of God, is the energy that fuels miracles. Divine Love is limitless. You can learn to practice unconditional, limitless Reiki. It is easy. When channeling Reiki simply move your personality and ego aside and KNOW Reiki  IS “working” on many levels. It is very important to remember that Reiki will never cause harm. Results are easier to witness when you, as a practitioner, strengthen your light, and command your ego and personality to step aside. It is the personality and the ego that can cause you to try to manipulate or control, or create a desire to intellectualize what is happening during a healing, or a prayer session. A tendency to manipulate or control, creates attachment to...

8 EASY Steps to Boost Your Immune System with Reiki

It is our immune system’s “job” to help us avoid infections and disease. The immune system relies on a healthy supply of white blood cells. Stress, as well as lack of exercise and nutrients, can reduce or weaken our white blood cell count. We have choices regarding our level of exercise, and the foods we select, but it is more challenging to manage the stressors in our life.

Reiki & Oneness – Try This!

The beautiful full moon is such an inspiration to me in so many ways. As I gazed at her luminous presence last evening, I was reminded of a great gift that Reiki has given me…the experience of Oneness.

Many years ago I heard someone say “we are one with everything”. During a daily, personal, Reiki meditation I thought, “Nice concept, but how can that actually be?” One thing I know for sure is, whenever I ask “How” while Reiki is flowing through me, I better pay attention, because I am about to be shown.

Spirit Speaks – January 2012

“Hello to 2012” by Astara E. Edmonds When we reflect on the year 2011, let’s find gratitude and appreciation for our personal growth, accomplishments, realizations and blessings that have occurred for us. Sometimes we can get swept up in focusing so much on the challenges and upsets of life that we forget to focus on the positive elements. This is a moment to pause and reflect on our blessings. Gratitude reminds us that our experiences have purpose and the feelings of gratitude can bring peace and calm to our mind and emotions. With gratitude in our hearts, we can welcome the New Year of 2012 as an opportunity for increased empowerment both personally and collectively. Change is at the center of the times we are in and change need not be feared. Change is what makes each of us grow and expand. Being open to change allows for a positive flow and flexibility with the process. Many messages have been written by our Elders, The Hopi’s, The Maya, The Profits, Sages and Seers throughout time about the change of Ages and cycles on this planet. We are now at the turning of an Age as a 5115 year cycle ends 12/21/2012 and a new Age begins. This cycle as measured by the Mayan calendar is an end point and a beginning point. During this changing of Ages, we are drawn inward to personal reflection of what needs to be released and discarded and what needs to be owned and embraced. This is a time to let go of our fears and allows our spirit to express freely. Astrologically, we...

Reiki Audio Article January 2012

An Audio Introduction to Reiki Symbols with Laurelle Shanti Gaia recorded live at Peace Place, Sedona, Arizona in a Reiki level II class When you click this link a new window will open with the audio file Reiki Symbols, Laurelle Gaia When I think of all the healing energies available to the planet, I realize that they are all forms of light. I imagine this as a massive column of white light shining down upon the planet…. Why do we have symbols in the first place? Reiki symbols are like keys or switches that adjust the vibrational frequencies of the energy …. Each symbol draws in the right frequency at just the right time… We teach much more about the Reiki symbols and many other topics, and offer hands on practice during our training programs at Peace Place-The Reiki Center of Sedona.

Feng Shui and Wellness Tips – January 2012

Creating a Portal of Blessings for Mother Earth by Mariko Yamamoto Though foundational grounds may be appearing very “shaky” lately, including those of the actual earth and waters and the many dimensional structures of politics, finances, relationships, etc., the breaking waves lead us into the exciting adventure of surfing through thinning veils and playing leapfrog through spiritual portals opening into a new earth. We are transitioning from a world of “mind over matter”: the use of force/control/manipulation over that which is viewed as separate as well as the giving away of power to external structures and references to “Soul as One”: where each Soul has the opportunity to attune to their True Essence, honor spiritual sovereignty and align with the Universe as One Awakened Collective. As the great shift takes place, we are being given the opportunity to choose in every moment what we give our attention to. We can choose to interact and dance with the blueprint of collective fear or the blueprint of the Era of the Soul. One of the reasons life may appear as “chaos” is that the present wave is collapsing from familiar, linear time/space into the experience off the non-linear, no time, no space continuum. This gives more readily access to the infinite quantum field of Divine potential. As we accelerate our consciousness into heightened states of awareness, we begin to move beyond the boundaries of old structures and belief systems and can accept the invitation to remember who we truly are and play full out as Spirit playing with Spirit in all of life. As we remember our true nature and inherited...

Inspirations from Baker January 2012

A New Creative you! by Baker Gendron The beginning of a new year seems to give us a new lease on life. We get to start anew, to release anything that didn’t work last year and move forward. In view of that I’m going to ask you to engage your creative side. To look at things in a different light, to think of color and sound and objects differently. To let go of the analytical and just go with your creativity and intuition. Don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the questions, just let your unique answer float in from the ethers, engage your inner child and create. What color is the letter S? What does turquoise sound like? If you were an animal what animal would you be? What does an eagle think as it soars in the air? What does it feel like to be a tree? If you were a car what kind of car would you be? What time is it on Saturn? What does platinum feel like? How old is magenta? If you were a road where would you go? Where were you in 1844? (no analyzing just go with it, let it flow) What does capybara taste like? If you were going to get a tattoo (okay it can be removed the next day) what would it be? Where would you put the tattoo? (remember it can be gone the next day) How much can you possibly love? What does your brain feel like? Now that your creative juices are flowing try these on: What was the most fun you had in...

Reiki for Projects and Goals

Reiki for Projects and Goals Article in January 2012 Reiki Whispers Newsletter by Laurelle Shanti Gaia It is a good thing that I am one who welcomes change. I was planning on writing an article entitled “Surfing the Dimensions with Reiki” for this issue of Reiki Healing News.  I worked on it for several days, and suddenly I found myself “stalled”. Perhaps I became stuck between dimensions? (just kidding). All I know is I hit a block.  I usually use Reiki to move myself through writer’s block, but this time it just wasn’t budging. Now I understand why. Earlier this month I signed on as Spiritual Advisor for a documentary project that one of my friends is developing. I agreed to coordinate Reiki practitioners to send Reiki for several aspects in the production and development of the documentary. As I began to ask people to “send Reiki to the project”, I started receiving questions like “How do I Reiki a project?” Now that I have received over 80 facebook messages asking the same basic question, I finally understand why the other article was blocked. The timing was not right. The timing for this article appears to be perfect. I have been practicing Reiki for 25 years and teaching for 20, and sometimes I lose site of the fact that there are qualities that Reiki offers us that we may forget about over time.  Many of us fall into a routine practice. Regular practice is lovely, but trying new things and exploring Reiki’s limitless nature helps us learn, grow and heal on all levels. Reiki has been helping with planning,...

Feng Shui and Wellness Tips, December, 2011

The Call for Beauty by Mariko Yamamoto Our Souls carry a longing for Beauty…in the land, art, gardens, word, song, kinship, connections… In these modern times, beauty has been associated with glamor and romanticism. But often, glamor is fickle and fleeting. Beauty is something so ancient and belongs to the eternal mystery within us. It brings to us the experience of wholeness and holiness. It not only meets the needs of the Soul, Beauty is the Soul… No wonder Beauty brings to us the experience of coming “Home.” During times of uncertainty, weariness and constant changes, Beauty can ease and embrace our hearts and bring a trust in the future.  Beauty is a gift of Grace. Invoke, Retrieve and Awaken to Beauty… Give your space a Beauty “makeover.” As everything, including our environments, carries living light vibrations, clean and clear your home and work space to experience it’s sparkle and shining essence. Perform a blessing. Don’t feel you need to carry out an extensive or elaborate ceremony. Consecrate your space with LOVE. Connect with your Higher Self and the Devas of the land and home. Share sincere love and appreciation. Call upon Archangel Jophiel, the Angel of Beauty.  Ask Her for guidance on what may enhance the Spirit of Beauty in your home and in the world. When we surround ourselves with Beauty, we are not only uplifted, Beauty carries positive healing impulses to our subconscious, bringing a natural coherence to all of our body systems and raises our frequencies to vibrate to well being. Beauty can even transform the frequencies of non-beneficial energies which have accumulated upon the...

The Inner Wellspring – Spirit Speaks – December, 2011

By Astara E. Edmonds The Inner Wellspring In these times of challenge and change, I find my personal path to inner peace is to go within to that place of quiet listening and conversation with Spirit.  An inner dialog takes place between my feeling self and my logical self.  Often, however, my dialog is with my Angels, Guides and Higher Beings.  I trust in this dialog and find that answers to questions come in a variety of ways.  Listening and being open is important to receiving the highest guidance possible. When we realize that we are all connected and there is nothing really “outside” of us , conversation with Spirit becomes a natural way of life.  When I ask my Angels for help or assistance, I know I am having a conversation with loving and brilliant family members who care about my well being.  I trust this.   As we all grow in our trust in this inner process, we become stronger, more resilient, more creative and less fearful. While there are fearful situations and circumstances occurring everywhere in the world around us, we can choose our level of participation in that fear.  When the emotion of fear is being felt, look at it truthfully and let go of any attachment to it.  When I move beyond a fearful moment and let go, it does not return to me with any power.  We have the ability to move beyond our fears and the fear felt by others. We are empathic beings feeling many thoughts and emotions generated by other people.  When a group of people feel fear and broadcast that...

ThetaHealing

As an RN with over 23 years in traditional medicine, I experienced in 1992 an injury that resulted in 5 surgeries, multiple procedures, and insomnia & taking 15 medications. I was still in pain. Through Reiki & becoming a Reiki Master Teacher, I was healed. This opening to healing energies & relaxing theta brain waves guided me to open my own holistic healing practice. A Theta brain wave is a relaxed state that is associated with hypnosis or a deep dream state. (Reiki-alpha wave) As a ThetaHealer and Instructor, in an awake theta state I connect to the Creator of All That Is to witness healing for myself & others. ThetaHealing techniques by Vianna Stibal allow you to access the subconscious limiting beliefs, remove them from your DNA strands & replace positive downloads of feelings & beliefs from Source. ThetaHealing allows you with muscle testing to identify the exact core, genetic, soul and/or history belief that is holding you back from experiencing joy, health, love relationships, prosperity & balance. I have seen & experienced remarkable healings for cancer, GI disturbances, pain, etc. for myself & others. A relative who is a breast cancer survivor no realizes thru ThetaHealing that she is important & matters in this world in every cell of her body. ThetaHealing has enhanced my life, Reiki, my family, friends and clients. Create your happiness now.

Inspirations from Baker

Love Yourself Well! by Baker Gendron Recently I watched an incredible video of the near death experience of Anita Moorjani.  Unable to move as a result of the cancer that had ravaged her body for over three years, doctors at the hospital that morning had given Anita just hours to live  She crossed over and came back.  Here’s what this beautiful woman learned: “ Let me explain that there is a difference between ‘being loving’ and ‘being love’.   Being loving means giving love to another whether you have any for yourself or not. It means giving what you yourself may or may not even have to give. This type of giving of love can eventually drain you, because we don’t always have a limitless supply. And then we look to the other to replenish our pool of love, and if it is not forthcoming, we stop being loving ourselves, because we are exhausted.  Being love, on the other hand, means loving myself unconditionally so that it overflows, and anyone and everyone around me just becomes an automatic recipient of my love. The more I love myself, the more it flows out to others. It almost feels like being a vessel for love to flow through. When I am being love, I don’t need people to behave a certain way in order for them to be a recipient of my love. They are automatically getting my love as a result of me loving myself. So to stop being love, to me, means to stop loving myself. Hence, I will not stop being love on account of another.”                                             –Anita Moorjani I love her  line,  “They are...
