Winter Hibernation

Well, no matter how much I try.. I always go into some sort of a hibernation during the Winter. Some years are better than others, this was one of the better years.. I think. I'm so ready for Spring to be here, it's so close. I can feel Nature changing, I can't wait for the date on the calendar to catch up! Beautiful birds surround my house, they chirp at night.. the sound of their song brings me such comfort - as long as they are singing, I feel safe.

I've started a new chapter in my life. I've decided to expand my knowledge of Reiki Healing and have begun working with Nicole Lanning from Healing Art Forms to move forward on my journey. Every week I am attuned to new Reiki Systems and then incorporate them into my daily life, use them to heal others and basically just let the energy flow through me and into all those around me. I have a blog that I started a while back for my Living Earth Reiki website.. I will be updating it on a more frequent basis, journaling my Reiki experiences and how things are changing because of it. I feel my life shifting a bit, a strong desire to assist others on their path to healing has manifested within me.. every time I turn around someone else I know is suffering, is in pain or is having a heath crisis. I've been studying holistic health and healing for the past 20 years and now I'm working on obtaining the certifications that I need to be able to help others in an official capacity.

People are getting sicker and at the same time they don't trust the medical system we have in place now to heal them.. very understandable to me, but usually when people reach that conclusion, they feel alone and don't know where to go next, so they settle for what's available which might not always be the best choice. I want to help empower people and let them know they have the power within themselves to heal anything that may come up in their life! You may be able to heal yourself, but you do need a good support system.. and a lot of chearleading along the way! It's all part of being One... we all need to learn to help each other, to give freely with Love instead of to fight and resist with fear.

I have been watching my family and friends suffer. It's hard to watch those you love suffer and not let it touch you, even though it's not your life being effected, it's not your lesson to learn. This is what has pushed me from 'maybe one day' to 'now is the time' with my my Holistic Health studies... I want to be able to help rather than just watch helplessly from the sidelines. I realize everyone has to go through their own journey, but if I could assist even just a little, it would make me feel like I was doing what I came here to do.

I know what you mean about wanting to help people. I adore my Reiki practice, but have fallen away a bit from doing one-hour sessions. I do alot of "on the spot" work or distance healing, or use Reiki in my practice for empowering objects, but miss working with someone on my table.

Good for you for doing some work with new forms of healing. Bright blessings on your journey!
