Living with thankfulness every day

Thankfulness is our most basic, and important, spiritual practice. At the very minimum, we were taught as children to say thank you to adults who give us gifts or praise. Many of us were raised in households where saying grace was done before meals. And of course, at Thanksgiving, we are encouraged to give thanks […]

How to get centered when life is overwhelming

Let’s face it – we’ve had a lot of bad news lately. We’re on mental and emotional overload between the current political landscape, devastating natural disasters, and recent acts of violence. And it doesn’t seem like things are going to let up anytime soon. While taking to our beds and binging on cupcakes seems like […]

Spiritual resilience for troubling times

In the days leading up to and following the recent Presidential election, I have been thinking about the teaching on non-attachment from the Dhammapada (the Buddha’s Path of Wisdom) that my teacher Hyakuten Inamoto, founder of Komyo ReikiDo, includes in his Reiki training: “Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go […]

Open up to your freedom

Many of the clients I work with are seeking change – and are afraid to loosen their grip on their current situation in order to allow for that shift to occur. Sound familiar? We all do it, because desire and attachment are inherently part of our human nature, and also because we are conditioned to […]

What feeds your soul?

Recently, my family spent the week at Jekyll Island for spring break. We are at our happiest when salt water, waves and sand are within reach. I grew up near the Atlantic Ocean in New York and my husband on Alabama’s Gulf coast. For us, the beach is a place that centers us energetically and […]

Rewriting your story

I recently spent a weekend at Columbia Theological Seminary attending their Immersion Experience, a required course for the certificate program I’m working on. A short account of my weekend is posted on my personal blog. One of the big things we did over the course of 3 days was to begin journaling our lives, which […]

Quiet comfort: Reiki healing for grief and loss

Grieving the loss of a loved one, or coming to terms with a serious illness, breakup or unexpected job loss is never easy. Our culture has an uneasy time with grief, and people are often advised by well-meaning friends or family to “move on” before they feel emotionally ready. We praise the ones who put […]

Perfect just as you are

Over the years, I’ve received spiritual teachings in dreams, and the one I had earlier this year was no exception. It has stayed with me, and I wanted to share it. I was facilitating a life coaching workshop for approximately 10 people. As part of the workshop, I was leading the participants through a series […]

Be a good example

In traditional Japanese Reiki systems, students who complete Shinpiden training are not given the title Reiki Master, as they are in Western Reiki systems. We are given the title, Shihan, or Teacher. (Those who practice martial arts may also recognize the honorific Shihan used for someone who is a head instructor.) But the kanji for Shihan means more […]

Give us this day our daily Reiki practice

  “Reiki will guide you. Let the Reiki hands find it. They will know what to do.” – Hawayo Takata (source, Helen Haberly, Reiki: Hawayo Takata’s Story) “Put your hands, surrender and smile.” – Hyakuten Inamoto The biggest gift we can give ourselves as a Reiki practitioner is commitment to daily self-treatment. Sometimes we misunderstand […]

Why I don’t “channel” Reiki

One of the challenges Reiki practitioners in the West have had when describing to others what happens during a Reiki treatment is explaining a phenomena that is undeniably esoteric with regard to our cultural point of reference. I’ve joked before that we have Descartes’ “I think, therefore I am” to blame for this difficulty. In […]

Working with the energy of Reiki and yoga

I’ve been practicing meditation for well over a decade, yoga for nearly as long, and Reiki for about 5 years now. It didn’t take long for me to see some very natural interrelationships between these practices. For example, all three practices incorporate the practice of being present, observing the movement of energy and working with the breath. One […]
