Reiki Energy Healing

JUST FOR TODAY
Don’t get angry
Don’t worry
Be grateful
Work hard
Be kind to others

~Mikao Usui

A natural intuitive, I have always had an interest in natural healing. I first discovered my abilities when I was able to rid my mother of a migraine headache. By placing my hands in the area and letting the energy flow naturally it relieved her of the pain.

In cosmetology, one of the few professions that incorporates touch, I have worked with my hands for a long time. This was before I knew anything about Reiki.

I decided to learn Reiki training to manage my own energy system. Now I enjoy helping others to find peace and relaxation. I have been attuned to Level II, Usui Reiki, and will be taking the Master Level soon. I have obtained my Level I in Spring Forest Qigong healing, which is a compliment to my Reiki practise.

In performing Reiki treatments, I am allowing the universal flow of energy to come through me, and be directed to where it most needs to go. This can be done in person, or by distance.

In Person

Doing Reiki in person, I often incorporate sound, crystals and aromatherapy as a compliment to the session. Actual touch is not necessary, but is sometimes incorporated. In giving Reiki, I work to clear the energy blockages that may be hindering your well being. Hands are placed in your energy field, not necessarily on the body itself, although sometimes that may be advantageous. I use Young Living pure essential oils.

Distance Healing

We will prearrange a time to connect. You can find a comfortable spot to lie down and relax. We will spend about an hour, first grounding, then working on you. We can also connect by Skype although it is not necessary.

Spring Rumblings

early-spring

It was early spring when I began this post. I love new beginnings and the fresh crisp feel of new adventures. Some adjustment is required as all of our bodies are waking up to new life. I have been doing a lot of soul searching to arrive at this point.

Redesigning my life, as in a sculpture, what needs to remain is slowly being revealed. I leave behind that which not longer has a place in my life. The road ahead is open and freedom is at my command, though embarking is taking much longer than I had envisioned. All things happen in their own time. I am beginning to achieve clarity. The vision of what I want to create is slowly coming into focus.

I knew all along on some level what direction this was all taking. However what was lacking was belief in myself, belief that this world could support me to do what I love to do. Some doors are closing now, so that new channels may open. I have to do what I love and was designed to do. The message from the universe is clear.

It’s about being stuck for a very long time. The longer one is stuck, the more difficult it is to muster the confidence to pull oneself out. It feels like I have hit bottom, the bottom of this vortex I had been sucked into. I am going to move forward and I may need a bit of help.

spring-pink

I have exhausted my resources. I am trying to raise money for my living expenses. If you feel so inclined, please visit my website and make me an offer on one of my available paintings. I am looking for fair market value. Let’s talk! I intend to offer healing arts services, such as Reiki.

In my path to revive my music, I played a showcase at The Nickelodeon in Calgary, AB in April. Now I am looking for paid gigs in Calgary, offering piano guitar, vocals, instrumental and am available for weddings, restaurants, lounges, and corporate gigs.

I am working on creating my own business offering web design and social media services. I attended Calgary’s first WordCamp this past weekend, which is about WordPress, the content management system for websites. I intend to base my design services on this amazing software so that clients can update their own website, if they so desire.

In this process I am re-branding myself which will involve integrating all of my talents under one website. Stay tuned for the launch of my new website.

Chaos & Creativity

Crow-mtn

The mighty Bow River is high and wide, swollen to it’s maximum, breaching the banks in some areas. We have had heavy rains, and the large mountain snow-pack is still melting. I was in Canmore recently, and some of the paths we walked on have been closed due to flooding.

I started this blog post many times, and was unable to complete it until now. This is primarily due to a challenge in what Maslow’s hierarchy of needs refers to as satisfying lower level basic needs before progressing on to meet higher level growth. I have proven progress is often disrupted by failure to meet lower level needs. Oh to become fully self-actualized. My Master Level Reiki training will have to wait until I can stabilize my income.

perspective

I am still undergoing major life transition. Despite the amount of chaos going on, I have decided my current position is advantageous. It is like the perfect storm for creativity. It is exciting to see what will happen next. My whole life has been a bit like this, but this feels bigger than what I have gone through before.

Still, I try to tie the invisible threads together to understand what is really developing here. I have a sense that I am on the right path, but not a clear picture of how things will transpire. One of the barriers may be that I think I need to know how to get where I am going. All that is really required is vision and desire. It is slowly formulating, like a pressure cooker builds up steam. I have discerned the precise details of how, are most likely not up to me.

Stampede-Clinic

stampede-horse_sm

The centennial of the Stampede was bigger than ever and has come and gone. A celebration of western heritage, it is a tradition here. Attendance records were broken. I painted another set of Stampede windows. Most stampede windows are very cartoon like, but I try to add a little something different in mine. I love the closeup of this horse. Too bad it’s not permanent.

Window painting is fun, though challenging to paint on glass and it also fills in the gaps financially. What I would really like to find is a mural job. Also, I am looking for someone to collaborate with musically. I did perform at a wedding, and just last weekend at a party. Both were well received, and now I will go to some jams and open stages to connect with others. I have been using positive affirmations and so I am saying, “The perfect job finds me.” I am intent on following my heart, and trusting the process to set me on the correct path.

My Life is a Work in Progress

Swans

My birthday was amazing and all because of a random drive I took. Slightly lost on the range road I spotted a pond full of swans. What fantastic luck!

The first thing that came to mind was the symbolism, particularly in alchemy, where the white swan is the beginning etheric light-filled phase. No doubt in my mind, that coming upon this sight was no accident. Thank you fellow bloggers for sending all your birthday wishes!

Artist for Hire

By now I could have sworn I would have a full time job. Not so. I just have not figured it out yet. I know for certain age is playing a factor. The general mindset needs to change out there, because I am certainly not ready for the pasture!

And so I am seeking any kind of work, small jobs, big jobs, and of course mural work in Calgary and surrounding areas. I am submitting a proposal for painting on the traffic control boxes. The City of Calgary is hiring artists to paint them. Wish me luck! My Reiki Level III training has been postponed due to my budget, and I do hope I will be able to attend in June.

swan dance

The business part of art is very time consuming, research, writing proposals, updating the portfolio, and sometimes it can feel like there is no time left over to paint. In trying to establish myself as a professional artist, there is much to be done.

I cannot say looking to the art galleries is the answer anymore at least as a mainstay. So I am thrilled to announce, I have signed with an art consultant. AdoptanArtist is a joint venture, between local artists and businesses and it does not cost the business anything. A self representing artist needs support as it is too big a task to manage without being part of a larger group. So if you are a business in Calgary who has room to hang some original art in your offices, please contact AdoptanArtist. It won’t cost you anything, and you can support local artists.

Baker Park Spring

The buds are bursting and our weather is super warm for this time of year. The late spring snows have greened things up. I have been thinking about doing more sketching. At one time, I did it a lot, and also did some pen and ink.

Will I find time to keep a sketchbook journal this summer? Join an outdoor group that does group hikes? Perhaps a Plein Air outdoor painting group would be fun too, or I may just go out on my own. I am getting out a bit more to network with people who have the same interests. I would love to collaborate on some art and music projects, so I am hoping to connect with those people.

2012 … It’s Been Here a While Now

newyears2012-trees

2012 is well underway, and I started this blog post in January. Hopefully some of you are still out there, and have not given up on me.

My feeling is that it will be a good year. So much is shifting and changing and I am going with the flow.

I have been striving to check off the unfinished tasks I began the year with. Tasks which I never imagined would have carried on so long. As I complete these, I move forward.

foothills

We have had a mild winter so far. A photo excursion to the Leighton Ranch was refreshing,former home of the artists A.C. Leighton, and his wife Barbara.

What a spectacular viewpoint of the mountains from the foothills! The Chinook winds were pounding me, a few pools of snow between trees in sheltered areas was the only evidence of winter.

I completed my Reiki Level One training, and I am slated to do Reiki Level II on the last weekend of March. So far, a permanent job has not shown up for me. I never dreamed I would be out of work so long, thinking my two year stint as Director of the Music Academy would help me to slide into another position easily. However that was not the case, and apparently I have not found my people or where I can add most value yet.

I have been taking this abundance course through the Daily Om. This course employs many Feng Shui cures, and assists one in shifting the energy to make way for new and wonderful things.

I have had time to study and meditate. Some of my time has been spent practicing my music and regaining my confidence as I intend to perform in the near future. I am teaching a couple of students privately. I am working on a painting that I did not finish in time for my last show, two years after the fact. Better late than never.
