As we live in a society where separation from one another exists, it seems religious and spiritual beliefs are yet another avenue for separation. Is it only an illusion that world religions are made up of beliefs, in opposition to each other? There are certain dogmas and tenets that are in opposition, the most egregious one being “my beliefs are right and yours are wrong.” It continues, “you have to have my beliefs to go to heaven and live in eternal life; otherwise, you are destined to live in damnation forever.” Is that a truth?
Since our world is becoming smaller, and connections...

You do not have to identify yourself as a psychic, a medium, or an intuitive, to connect with your third eye chakra. While some people are gifted with strong natural intuitive abilities, every person has the capacity to develop this part of their being.
The third eye chakra, often called the mind’s eye, is located in the middle of the forehead, slightly above the eyebrows. The purpose of this chakra is to enable us to “see” beyond the physical functionality of our eyes. It is the seat of intuition, psychic abilities, and clairvoyance. When the energy in this chakra is fully developed,...

There are many wonderful Reiki practitioners in today’s world. And, it is important that you select the right Reiki practitioner for you. As a Reiki Master, and a licensed clinical social worker for many years, I am a firm believer in finding a professional with the personality that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed, and is the right match for you. Those in the healing professions have the skills and expertise to facilitate healing – but, no one professional is the right person for every client!
To select the right practitioner, the first step is to compile a list of Reiki practitioners...
Are Reiki and the recognition of abundance in our lives connected? If we use Reiki on a frequent basis, will our perception of the blessings in our lives expand? I believe the answer to these questions is “yes” for many Reiki users. Most people seek Reiki to help a physical problem, usually after trying several western-medicine solutions – I did that myself! But, the surprise for new users is that Reiki gives you so much more! Let’s explore this reality further.
First and foremost, as one experiences the never-ending possibilities for physical healing, one becomes aware of the unlimited...
One of the most exciting parts of being a Reiki Master, and an author, is meeting like-minded folks on the journey. When service to others becomes one’s mission in life, we seem to find each other. It is truly a wonderful blessing to meet so many special people who have come into my life. Each person has given me something new to think about, inspired me, or challenged me to take the next step.
Here is one of those amazing stories….
One day, I received an email from a local woman who offered to do a youtube video for me, at a very reasonable rate. I admit it – I knew in today’s world,...
Archangels are powerful celestial beings, the chief messengers of God to human beings. The “el” suffix of most archangels’ names literally means “in God.”
Archangels existed before humankind did. They live in both the heavenly realms and the earthly sphere and are easy for people to access. For many, it is easy to hear and feel their presence. The main purpose of archangels is to bring peace to earth, as we are reminded every Christmas season. And, peace begins within each individual person. When we live with feelings of discord and unpeacefulness, no matter what the origin, peace...
Picture these two bodies of water: the first is a freshwater, running brook. The water is cool and clean; delightful, small fish are flowing around the rocks. You can’t wait to dip your toes into it. The second body of water is a dark and murky stagnant pond. The water sits there, with dead leaves and bugs sitting on top. There is an unpleasant smell.
These two images illustrate the extreme possibilities of the second chakra, the sacral chakra. In the first image, the life energy is vibrant, flowing and pleasurable. In the second one, the energy is blocked, without any life-giving force.
My definition of intuition is simply listening to messages that we receive. Using Reiki daily has certainly helped my intuition to grow. Frequent use of Reiki helps me to stay calm, which is an essential ingredient in listening to Spirit. When my life is too hectic and I am rushing around, thinking of a dozen things at once, it is hard to hear messages! Reiki has helped me to listen, and trust, what my thoughts, and gut, are telling me.
Let me share this true story. When I did psychotherapy work, I often used prayer, deep breathing and other calming techniques, before a session. After I learned...
As this blog will be focusing on Reiki, the chakras, energy healing, and related topics, it seemed I should go back to the basics and write about the Chakra System. The first writings about chakras appear in the Vedas, the primary source of Hindu beliefs, codified around 3000 B.C. Chakras were defined as vortices of energy, where two or more channels of subtle energies meet, and rotate, looking like a wheel. The vortices can be strong and vital, or weak and slow. Chakra literally means “wheel.”
Seven main chakras were identified, along the spinal column, mirroring both physical and spiritual...
Colors are the energy of light. Colors vary because of wavelength and frequency levels of light. The rainbow colors have different vibratory levels. Red is the longest wavelength and has the slowest vibration – while violet has the shortest wavelength and highest vibration.
Each of the 7 major chakras has colors related to them. We’ll look at the positive aspects of each color – and what you can do to enhance them. But like everything else about energy, keep a good balance. When any of those colors are too much, too extreme, there can be negative aspects.
Color therapy is a holistic...
